Our family planned to travel to Ocean, New Jersey from Georgia the last week of July for our nephew’s wedding. Unexpectedly we had a death in the family and had to travel earlier than expected. We had service scheduled on our Mazda CX-9 prior to our original travel date. The service included a recall, new tires, and a broken driver side visor.
In between the funeral and wedding I called a Mazda dealership closest to my relative’s house, but they were very short answering my questions and appeared to have no interested in helping me. I looked to the next closest dealership, Irwin in Freehold. I was connected to Service Advisor, John Davis, and was immediately impressed with his willingness to help. One of the first items I asked John about was the sun visor. When he looked up the VIN, he noticed my vehicle had a recall. I told him I was aware and explained the circumstance that brought us to New Jersey. He was able to schedule a service appointment to look at the sun visor, perform the recall and install new tires. Not only did John get me in at a time convenient for me, price match the tires I had chosen at a local shop in Georgia, but he also supplied me with a loaner car. I was blown away with his care and concern.
Unfortunately the sun visor was on back order and they were unable to install it during my initial visit. Due to the fact that the warranty would expire by the time I returned to Georgia, John called my dealership and had them open a service ticket and provided them with the part information so that the repair could be done when I returned. A few days later I received a call from John asking if I was still in New Jersey. He again, scheduled a convenient appointment time, and was able to resolve the sun visor issue prior to our long 800 mile drive back to Georgia.
Needless to say John provided excellent customer service. He went above and beyond to not only help repair my vehicle, but to provide me with piece of mind during a very difficult time. If ever in future travels to New Jersey and I find a need for my vehicle to be serviced, I will definitely contact Irwin and ask to speak to John Davis.
