I had gone to Lakeland VW to look at a Used car they had available, however after a test drive and further inspection I decided it wasn't the car for me. The Salesperson, Thomas was amazing - very attentive to what I was looking for. Within a week he had called me back very excited to share the news on a vehicle that had come in. He had stated that the car would not be available to purchase or test drive for a couple days and spoke to his Manager about having someone interested in purchasing it once it was "released".
Well, the next day, the car was sold and prior to it being available for sale. Thomas was very upset for me and I totally appreciated his call and apology.
I decided to call the General Manager, Jeff Arthur, who was very rude. All he wanted to say is that he owes no one an apology for selling a vehicle. Even after I explained the situation, he kept cutting me off from my conversation. He told me that I should have put down a deposit. Had I known that's all I had to do to guarantee the car, I would have done so. The lack of communication was on the dealership's side - not mine. I was never told I had to do anything except wait for the phone call that the car was ready to be sold.
THE MOST TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE EVER FROM JEFF ARTHUR!!!
Not only is Thomas losing a customer and commission but I will make sure to tell my story to as many people as possible. Do NOT buy from the rude, arrogant General Manager. This dealership needs a lesson in Customer Service ASAP.
I Recommend This Dealer:
