If I could give them 0 stars I would!!! Last week my wife called to verify that a Subaru Tribeca that they had listed for about 15K was still there. They told her that it was still there, so she set up an appointment for me to drive down to view the vehicle after I got off work. She told me that they would be expecting me around 7 pm since I had to drive down from northeast Atlanta- DURING rush hour traffic. I got down to Columbus around 7:30 to be met by a salesman who asked if I talked to anyone on the phone. I told him that I did not, but my wife did. The person on the phone told her that all I needed to do when I got there was to give her name and phone number, and a sales rep could pull the car around for me to check it out. UNFORTUNATELY, once I mentioned what car I was there to view, the salesman said, "Ooooo, sorry, but that car sold two days ago." TWO DAYS AGO?!?!?!?!?!? Then why LIE and tell my wife that the car was still in stock, then go and make an appointment for me to drive down and view something that YOU KNOW is not there. The salesman then tried the old "bait and switch" sales tactic, where he said, "Well, let's see if we can find something comparable to what you're looking for." Keep in mind, I am PISSED beyond belief... I can honestly say that I haven't been this mad or frustrated in a LONG WHILE- and I teach middle school kids. Anyways, long story short, we didn't find anything on their lot even close to the deal that they offered online. The salesman then got the manger, Mike involved. I discussed my concern with Mike and just asked him to put himself in my shoes. Your wife was just lied to. You drove over 3 hours in traffic to view a car that you knew was not there. You basically do not get to see your wife and kids that day because a dealership in south Georgia wants to play games. Mike went on to tell me that it is basically out of their control because all of the sales calls go straight to a call center in TEXAS, and they do not have up to date access to the inventory in COLUMBUS, GEORGIA. Mike also told me that he was a man of integrity and he would do everything in his power to make it right. I left him my phone number and email, but I have yet to hear from him. Mike thanked me for how I handled the situation, because not once did I curse or raise my voice to him or his salesman, but good Lord knows that I felt like it. To take it even further- I wasn't even going to write a negative review on this place, even after everything they put my family through... UNTIL yesterday, my wife got a voicemail from Gerald Sandoval- the guy from the "call center" asking if I was able to make the appointment and how I liked the car... Typing this review is getting my blood pressure up- so I'll just leave you with that. WHAT AN INSULT AND A SLAP IN THE FACE.
