"Horrible Sales Experience"

- Benjyboy7

A very poor sales experience at Rick Case VW. The dealership itself is quite pleasant with nice amenities for customer. My sales experience began with receiving a guaranteed, no haggle quote through the USAA buying service (Truecar). Upon my arrival, I was introduced to a salesperson who was very personable. I showed him my quote and told him I would buy the quoted automobile for the guaranteed price. He brought out the vehicle, and my wife and I test drove it. We told the salesman we would purchase the vehicle as quoted. He began by asking about financing and trade in. We told him that we would buy the car for cash, and there would not be financing. He excused himself and said he had to get the sales manager. He would be right back. About 20 minutes later the sales manager and salesman came in and immediately said he could not sell the vehicle at that price, because I was not financing through the dealership. He stated that the guaranteed price (which was a very fair price) included that I would finance the car and all rebates were factored in. He said that he would lose money at that price. I sympathized with him but insisted on paying the quoted price. This began the typical sales manager vs. customer scenario. He would retreat to his office, let us sit and come back to argue with us. I should have left, but this was a "guaranteed" price. This went on for several hours. At one point he said that he did not want to sell us a car. I asked if he was actually refusing to sell us a car. He replied he would but apparently we were not being cooperative. He insisted that we would have to pay an additional $1000 to make the deal. This cat and mouse game continued for about another hour. He finally came back and agreed to the original deal. We were then sent into the F&I office to complete documentation. The sales manager came in and announced that he discovered a $1000 rebate that could be applied to the deal. He had me sign an application for the rebate and whispered something to the F&I guy. The end result was to add an extra $1000 to the sale price, and then subtracting it from the price. The dealer benefited from the rebate not me. In addition in extra sales tax for me. All in all it was a horrible sales experience. It took over five hours to complete the ordeal. I have contacted Rick Case Corporate with my complaints and they would do nothing. Subsequent feedback was given to VW of America, and USAA Buying service and essentially no response after two months. Incidentally, I have had some interaction with their service department and I was quite pleased. My advice is that if you want to avoid intrigue, drama, and sitting for long periods, then avoid Rick Case VW, and be suspect of quotes from Truecar. They do not support their customers.

"Ripped Off by Rick Cas VW"

- Ripped Off

I left the dealership content with my new VW until later on I realized I got totally RIPPED OFF!! It's no wonder why they insisted I take the car home the same day! It's discussing how they payed it off and the screw you if you don't go over the numbers very carefully on your lease. what ever sale price you agreed RIck Cace VW will change it and youlll see you en up paying way over sticker price. They will tick you with amonthy payment but watch out what they write on the contract for the SALE PRICE!!!

"RICK CASE VW dishonest sales force - negative stars"

- KEN FROM NAPLES

I have already spoken with your general manager at the dealership over the phone in detail. He asked me "what he could do to fix this situation?",I told him "Sell me the Jetta for the price your salesman Ken offered it to at." He said he could not. So, I guess the phone call he gave me was just to follow protocol? Here are the details of my stomach turning tuesday morning.... I had a certified check in hand, for the amount that Salesman Ken told me would cover the purchase. This morning as I walked into Rick Case VW, I was greeted by the sales manager, who handed me a book written by You, Rick Case as well as Your "direct" phone numbers. I also met Ken (salesman) who said he was handing me off to another guy. I never saw Ken again. Never heard from Ken again. We did a test drive in the Jetta that was offered to us over the phone. When done with that, we sat and meet with the same sales manager. Ken (salesman) was no where to be found. The sales manager told me the price, $2600 more than quoted by Ken. I said this is not the deal we spoke about over the phone. He said this is the best we can do. My conversation with Ken had me go to the bank, get a certified check for $15500. I asked to see Ken, the sales manager said "Why? It won't change anything." He would not bring Ken the salesman into the conversation. They hid him away in another part of the building. I drove 2 hours each way from Naples with my son, to get the deal I confirmed 4 times the day prior with Ken. I wonder if Ken gets paid by how many people walk into the dealership asking for him. I really wonder if he is a sales person, or just a YES man to get you into the show room? Here is the deal that Ken (salesman) told I would get. $12255.00 + $699 fee +tax, tag , title I asked him 4 times if there are any other fees on this purchase. $699+ TTT. "Any other dealer fees? "Absolutely not!" Ken told me.

"Bad service (Don't buy a car for this dealer)..."

- Adam B.

Be careful buying a car from this dealer (Rick Case VW). I have leased a few cars in the past from different dealers. This dealer is the worst customer service I have experienced. I have purchased the maintenance plan from this dealer, and the time came to use it for service as simple as oil change. I had to wait was over and hours and a half and they haven't taken the car in. So I asked for a loaner they said they can't give a loaner 'till they take in and see what is needed. But when you lease a car the salesman tells you that if you service takes more than two hours we will provide you with a loaner. Not true, they try to stay away from a loaner as far as possible. I understand you don't have $1000 car for loaner, but then tell your salesman not to promise the loaner. So Iend up taking my car because I had to go back to work, and at a later time I took it to other VW dealer, where I have leased my previous car, they toke care of it. But I had to pay because the maintenance contract is a Rick Case specific it's not a VW USA contract, which was not disclosed to me a time of purchase. To make things worst the next time I am trying to schedule a service call, for oil change, tire rotation, warranty call, and a recall .... I ask the service rep to tell me when can we schedule a time? So I can bring my car in, and get a loaner and go on my way, because obviously the amount of service needed it must take more than two hours. The answer was I can't guaranty anything. I did mention to the service rep. that after the first incident when I had to wait long time, I called VW USA and they called your dealer and your dealership told me that they make sure to take care of me next time and make sure that I don't have to wait. The rep. didn't care, she was like a broken disk... no apology or anything just repeating the same thing: I can't guaranty anything... The reason I came to Rick Case because they advertise a low price. I regret doing that. Because they are the biggest or Busiest VW dealer... they don't care losing a customer or two. Try to ask for a service manager, Service VP / Director. I did multiple time at different times and days, every time the answer was none available. Someone will call you with no returns calls. The last person called me int he previous incident was the service director George. I asked for him, he is no longer there. I guess he got fed up with bad service complaints...

"DO NOT BUY A CAR FROM THIS DEALERSHIP"

- Angry Parents

DO NOT BUY A CAR FROM RICK CASE VOLKSWAGEN!!! My wife and I were helping our 16 year old son buy his first car. We had negotiated a deal with Rick Case VW over the phone and confirmed the price with the salesperson in writing via email (she had confirmed everything with her manager before confirming the deal to us in writing). The whole family went to the dealership to buy the car. When we arrived the car was conveniently sold. The floor manger said that he'd try to find the car at another dealer and arrange a trade. Since I'd done my homework I was able to tell him that the dealer in Lakeland had the car and gave him the VIN number. He said that he'd arrange the trade but would not honor the original price quote. After three days of promises that they were trying to get the car, I finally contacted the Lakeland dealer myself on a Saturday morning and purchased the car over the phone. Our family drove to Lakeland and picked up the car. We later found out that a lot of dealerships wouldn't trade with Rick Case. You can guess why. Before going to Rick Case, we were warned by all of the dealers who we spoke with what would happen - they wouldn't honor their promises (even if they were in writing). Unfortunately, we learned the hard way. Don't make the same mistake. (By the way, they also promised the 0% / 60 month no interest financing at the promised price but told us that wouldn't be honored either when we got to the dealership.)
