I showed a copy of this review to Advantage a week before posting it, to give the store manager or the owner a chance to reach out to me. No one from upper management did so.
My advice: Stay away from this dealership. They are the sort that give car salesmen a bad name.
We were lied to, first on the price Advantage listed on the internet and then by the salesman during the sales discussion. (Clearly, Advantage never intended to honor the internet price.) Management did not respond to my protests. Exhausted for having invested 6 hours getting to the store, negotiating and then waiting for the paperwork to be processed (and only at the end to discover the lies), I convinced myself that it was nevertheless a reasonable price for the car and went ahead and bought it. Further research when I got home suggests I paid way to much for the car. (I'm guessing that dynamic is part of the plan: Do whatever it takes to get customers in the door and then work the customer to get the price at which they are actually willing to sell the car.)
Then, when I attempted to start the car just two days after I had bought it from Advantage, the battery was completely dead. At that moment, I realized that Advantage must have known of that problem with the battery before they sold the car to me - because, when I inspected under the hood before buying, I noticed that the red cover on the positive post was off. That seemed odd to me at the time. "Why was it not in place?" I wondered. Now I am certain it is because they themselves had had to jump-start the battery and had inadvertently left the cover off after doing so. Nevertheless, when I called about the bad battery, they would not take my word that it was a bad. Neither would they accept the diagnosis from my local AutoZone store; so they refused to pay for a battery replacement procured closer to my home. So I was forced to drive 1 and 1/2 hours to the dealership to have it replaced under warranty. (The service department confirmed that the battery was bad and replaced it.)
Furthermore, while I was promised a car to use during my service appointment, I had to wait an hour for a dealership shuttle to take me to an Enterprise rental agency for the loaner vehicle. As a consequence, I missed an important meeting. (And when I was finally got to the car rental store, Enterprise had no cars available. Advantage might, at least, have given me one of their own cars to use.)
So, as I said, stay away from Advantage Toyota of River Oaks. To those several people at Advantage with whom I dealt that have integrity, I suggest you consider finding another a company that shares your values.
Thanks for passing this on, Mark.
