Purchased my vehicle new from Flow in Greensboro, NC. Shortly after purchase GM dropped the line of vehicle I purchased and I was informed I needed to take my vehicle to Flow in Winston Salem, NC to receive service. This is where problems start,,,
8/17/2016 Had my vehicle in for repairs. Had multiple fault codes flashing on dash display. Was informed that a speed sensor needed to be replaced. I approved repairs. Shortly afterwards service writer approached me again stating connector to speed sensor is also bad. More $$$$. After repairs completed and paid for, I am ready to leave. Pull vehicle onto street and much to my surprise I HAVE NO BRAKES. Also 4wd locker starts jumping in and out. Had to pull into oncoming lane of traffic to avoid hitting vehicle in front of me. Report to GM through website.
12/2015 Took vehicle in for oil change, tire rotation and NC State Inspection. During this visit I am informed by service writer that my automatic transmission cooler lines are leaking. When I question where the leak is located service writers attitude changes from friendly to hostile. Buy the way here it is ten (10) months later and I'm still looking for a leak. Reported to GM through website.
GM Recall # N150042 HVAC connector wire failure. They were burning at the wire to board connection. Car could catch fire with it. Mine went out prior to GM issuing the recall, and i went to Flow and purchased part and replaced. ( I was a certified auto tech at a dealership in Greensboro, NC during the 80's) Once GM issued the recall for the part I went to Flow with old part, receipt from purchase, and GM's recall notice. Flow refused to refund the price of the recalled part. Again reported this to GM through GM's website.
On all of the above issues if it was a service problem the service writers never generated a new work order. This is a common practice to cover mistakes the dealer may make. No ticket no proof is the way they look at it. Also for each complaint I made to GM through their website I received a call from a GM call center representative and also from someone with Flow Auto. Often during the calls from Flow Auto the representative would attempt to start a argument deigning any blame.
Also most of my work performed at Flow was done on a customer waiting basis. During these visits just about every customer that had a vehicle in for service was approached by a service writer trying to up-sell services they deemed needed to be preformed.
While most reviews here tell of a wonderful experience when buying a automobile from Flow, remember there is something to be said for SERVICE AFTER THE SELL. I myself will never step foot on another dealership lot that has the Flow name over it. They have too many dealerships associated with different brands and manufactures.
Do yourself a favor and spend you money somewhere else.
