My experience was kind of great at first, but then things turned sour. My salesman was Mark Freeman and he was good at first, but then his customer service became unprofessional. I already knew the car I wanted and wanted to test drive it before I purchased it. I know you must fill out the standard paperwork before you test drive, but they had me sitting there for the longest and trying to work a reasonable sales number. Basically, to me, they didn’t want me to test drive until they were sure they had me hooked to buy the car. When I was finally able to test drive, I liked the car and I put a down payment on it. Before the purchase, I noticed the brakes and rotors were in a bad condition and addressed it. They told me they would have it taken care of before I finalized my purchase. On the day I was to get my car, I called, and I was told by Mark it would take an hour before my car was ready and he would call to let me know to get it. I waited two hours with no call, so I called, he didn’t answer, and I drove to get my car. Upon arriving, Mark wasn’t there, my car wasn’t ready, so I had to wait, and it wasn’t bad because Alex was very helpful.
Once my car was finished and I left, I hadn’t been gone for more than 5 minutes before I discovered ants had formed a colony in my trunk. I took it back and they cleaned it out, but I don’t understand how the car was detailed and they missed something so obvious. Following that incident, about 3 days later I noticed the brakes were making a grinding sound every time I stopped. Then a few days later, the brake fluid light came on and I found that strange. I did replace the brake fluid and the light came on 3 days later and I knew something was wrong. I had to have my car towed to a Volvo dealership because it had become undrivable due to the brakes. I found out that the ALM mechanic had put in a cheap aftermarket brake caliper and he didn’t put it in right plus he didn’t put the rear brakes back in correctly. ALM did confirm this after I finally got a hold of them.
