So I setup a test drive with Valenti Motors for Saturday (the 14th). I live in MD, but I am currently working in NY. My fiance was visting for the weekend, so I thought it would be a good trip to go up there and test drive. Three hour drive, but should be worth it.
Called Bill a week in advance to set it up. Let him know my situation (long drive, etc.) and setup a time for 1pm. Got on the road about 10:00a hit huge amounts of traffic and called Bill at 12:00p to let him know I would be about 20 minutes late.
Bill says that the Elise is blocked in by cars that were being detailed, and he doesn't have the keys and didn't have my number to call me. I hung up with him before I sayed anything I regretted (I don't swear in front of women).
Couple things that piss me off here.
1. Bill has my number, he's called me in the past.
2. I hate wasting time. I don't mind when people are disrespectful or inconsiderate, thats a problem with them. But when people waste my time, its a big deal. That's a 6-hour drive for nothing. :no:
3. No options. No, I'll call the detailer, or I tried to find the keys, or can we possibly reschedule. Just that's it, oh well. :no:
4. Valenti charges above MSRP....for what? I can get better service at a Kia lot. :no:
Needless to say, I am calling tomorrow to get my deposit back and explain the above. I'd rather wait at my local dealer then deal with this.
