My Review Of Mercedes-Benz of Plano:
I purchased a new vehicle from the dealer in 2008. The service was excellent during the buying process. I moved out of the area and had my vehicle serviced at another MB dealership until I returned to Dallas this year, just in time for a hail storm. I took the vehicle to this dealership to repair the hail damage. I dropped off the vehicle to what seem like a black hole. Darrel, the only person I was allowed to work with, failed to communicate with me through the process. I was given multiple dates of when I could expect my vehicle to be returned. Each delivery date was not kept, which would have not been a major problem, except that the Darrel failed to call to let me know that the deadline would not be met. When I called, I was treated like a beggar asking for a hand-out. Everyone was blamed for the delays, from my insurance company to the detail person. After almost 4 weeks, my vehicle was returned. Shortly, after the return of my vehicle Dallas had a light rain and the passenger side began to leak water. I called Darrel and left him a message indicating that the I noticed a small leak during the storm. Darrel fail to return my call. I had to leave for business that same week and left the car at the airport. When I returned, I found the passenger side flooded. During a much heavier storm(s), the small leak became a waterfall. Once again, I called Darrel, no response. It was a Friday. I was told by customer service that there was nothing that they could do until Monday.
I dropped the vehicle Monday morning. A few days later Darrel called to let me know that they had removed the seats and the rugs to ensure that all of the moisture has been removed. This was a flat lie. After I picked up the vehicle, I noticed a lingering moldy smell, especially after the vehicle had been closed for a day or so. After examining the rugs and seats closely, it was clear than neither had been removed from the vehicle. Instead, they were shampooed and probably steam clean. I now have a vehicle that smells like mold mixed with deodorant. I called Darrel to let him know. As of today, he has not called back. I intend to take the vehicle back, but given the quality of the service I received, I am waiting until after the holidays. I do not want to be aggravated over the holidays.
I recently had a problem with the vehicle and took it to Park Place. The service provided was incredible.
Would I recommend this dealership? No. They worked hard at making a sale, but lost a customer by failing to follow through.
