Worst customer service experience in my 55 years. Absolutely horrible. Clayton the Service Manager should be fired for his deplorable attitude. 2005 Chrysler Crossfire that has been serviced there since new and I did not recognize anyone from a previous visit. Left a message to schedule an appointment for routine service and a back window that fell out of the convertible top (apparently a common problem with 2005 Crossfires) at 8:30am, another at 9:30am and then to let them know that I had a blowout on a runflat tire on the Turnpike about Noon. Never a return call. Car was flatbedded into the dealership from 42 miles. No one greeted me and then this man walked up to me and said, "Is that your car?" I acknowledged and he said something about the "expletive deleted" run flat tires that he took off his wife's car and replaced them with regular tires. He just stood there and I realized that he might work there and asked him if he did. He said yes and introduced himself as the service manager. I couldn't believe it! He made no offer to assist me! I told him that I called three times and no one got back to me. He then called Calvin over to help. No apology offered and nothing else said. Calvin did a walk around my car as I explained to him that I wanted an oil change, a headlight bulb replaced, and the rear window addressed. Subsequently, I had a blow out and needed to replace the tire. While at it, get me a price to replace all four. Calvin then said, "You want the tire replaced?" It was like I was talking to a wall as he ignored the other items. I explained to him that I needed the car back by the end of the next day as I was flying to PA and the car had to go back in my garage or remain at the dealership. I also stopped by the service manager's office to remind him that the car needed to be kept inside due to the back window. He assured me it would be. This process took one hour and then was given a ride home by their courtesy van. Got a call about 6pm from Calvin with the price for all four tires and I told him to go ahead and replace them. He told me the tires would be at the dealership by noon so no problem completing the work. I did not hear anything the entire day so I sent several emails and tried to call Calvin. When I called him his voice mail was not set up yet! I also left a message for the service manager. No return calls or emails which were copied to Calvin and the service manager. Calvin called back about 6pm. Oil change and tires done, but not the headlight and no help on the window repair. I was furious! I had to change my flight which cost $538.00 to do so in order to wait for the car to be completed. No sympathy from him, though he did give me his cell to contact him. He called me the next morning to let me know the car was done, except for the window. The courtesy van would be there in an hour. It was two hours. When I went to pick up the car, it was inside and washed. However, the car was wet inside and in the trunk as it had rained and I presumed left outside. The service manager denied this, but the wash attendant confirmed that it had been left outside. I flipped out on the service manager and told him "a little accountability or an apology would go a long way." He told me he apologized to me, but I never heard it. No help on the window either. First time Calvin had ever seen the problem, too. He gave me the name of a "ding" repairman to call. After I got home, I did some research and found an upholstery shop in Palm Beach at the recommendation of a friend. The owner of the upholstery shop, Steve Secrist, of Palm Park Auto Upholstery was incredibly helpful and very familiar with the repair. The Arrigo Chrysler dealership in West Palm Beach had been sending him Crossfires for repair under warranty. Funny how they were aware of it but not Napleton just a few miles away?!? Needless to say the car is scheduled to go there for the repair . . . at my expense. I witnessed numerous customers standing around to be waited upon and two that had less than pleasant interactions with the service manager. I also saw a man that was a former employee coming to pick up his last paycheck "high fiving" and saying goodbye to several employees while acknowledging that "he would never have to deal with that xxxxxx ever again." Gee, I wonder who he was talking about? I should also point out that my car has just 25,000 miles and is not only garage-kept but kept under a cover and meticulously maintained. Didn't matter to them either, as I had to return to have black greasy handprints removed from the interior A-pillar on the driver's side. All-in-all a horrible service experience. I can't believe Chrysler allows this to happen in this day and age with customer service being such a priority among competitors?
