This is for the employees of Bob Maxey Lincoln-Mercury, Mack Avenue: I could possibly be one of the most impatient people on the planet, but my impatience is put to the back of my day when I bring my car to Bob Maxey Lincoln-Mercury for service. One thing that people have to remember is that this is a full-service dealership, bodywork, service, pre-owned and new car sales. They do it all on site, and you can not expect to be the one person on the property. If you are looking for that quick-in, quick-out oil change, then go to one of the businesses that do that, and that only. The employees at Bob Maxey have always been courteous, helpful, and listen to me say what I need them to know. In this kind of service business, you have to expect that there are other customers besides yourself that also need work done to their vehicles, otherwise they wouldn't be there either. Your car is more than just filling up with gas or just going to Starbucks for a cup of coffee.
When I had service that needed to be done, I called first to ask when it would be a good time to bring my car, and Shawn told me first thing in the morning. I used to always get a loaner car, no matter what, at Bob Maxey, even when I knew they would have it for the day, but two weeks ago, I just had them drop me off at home so I could get work done myself. I wasn't impatient, didn't rant and rave like some people do if they have to wait a little bit of time. I thought they might even have my car until the next day because of service things that I needed to be done. Not so, I received a call about 3:30 to say it was ready, and they sent Mark to pick me up again to take me to my car. I had even spoken to Bob and Mary in the body shop to have something looked at with my vehicle while they had it, and they did, and gave me the info when I picked up my car.
That time of patience and realizing that I am not the only person on the planet that has an automobile issue made it easier for me, and it worked out well. Give the people at Bob Maxey the time to do their work done, to help you with your problem, to try to get your car back on the road. It can be done, and nastiness, yelling, or demanding doesn't do anything for you or for the professionals who are working on your car. I couldn't do any of the things that the men and women at Bob Maxey service, body shop, or sales do, so why would I think that I can tell them how to do their job any faster or better. Respect anyone in any job and remember that you, yourself, can't do everything that we need others to make our days better.
I bought my son his Lincoln MKZ and my pre-owned Mazda Tribute at Bob Maxey several years ago. I have been a customer for over 20 years, and will remain a customer with the respect that I receive from the employees at Bob Maxey Lincoln-Mercury. Bob Maxey, the owner, also takes the time to speak to me regarding something different than an automobile. That is the kind of dealership that I will stick with. Respect them, and you will receive the same respect in return.
