My driver side seat belt internal plastic broke making the seat belt unusable to click together and turn off the seat belt chiming. I was out of town in Dover, De.
I drove the car an hour buckled to the passenger side and obviously the chiming would not stop because I wasn’t buckled to the correct side. After that hour of noise I was a little crazy and my foot hurt. However, the car performed as advertised. No cruise control because I’m not connected to the drivers side, and the radio blasting to cancel out the belt noise. What works good to drown out the noise was Boston, all others still in the background, put that in the car manual. It’s Sunday, I have to wait until Monday...Oh No, I have to get in the car again... shoot me first, it will take my mind off the chime
I would have never thought my seat belt internally would malfunction. 2016 Outback.
Somehow I make it to the dealer in Newark,De. A crazy man shows up. Desperately needing some kind of relief. I parked the car perfectly like I was a truck driver making a delivery. I was out of the car in 3 seconds. Oh what relief.
The Service Manager, was perfect, very professional, very customer oriented, quality of service to me unmatched, bar none. My face...he must of saw I was in distress, I just come in from a war zone.
So my car, it didn’t have any bullet xxxxx in it, or it wasn’t pulled out of the Delaware river from the thought of driving it off the bridge, I wasn’t sure if the water would shut off the noise...I actually made it to the toll booth from driving across the bridge. I made it.
Back to the excellent quality of service, now I have 3 very professional Service Personnel around me, the Service Manager is directing them to do things for me. I’m sitting in his office, the Excellent Service Manager on the computer tracking my seat belt. He speaks, I hear in the fog, it’s coming from California, it will be here tomorrow.
Oh No! My mind goes back into...will I make it over the bridge? He’s talking, telling me all good stuff, I’ll I hear is chiming going off.
When the fog clears, one customer support service male comes in and says my car is inspected, has my key, tagged ready to go. Another, female customer support service personnel comes in and says the Loner car is ready for him. The fog now is getting really really clear, and the perfect Service Manager you have there says the magic words of relief. “We are putting you in a loner car, I can’t let you drive your car that way, is that ok?” I think it was wrong, but I said, “I love you”! My face went from distress to instant relief, I was a new man. The female excellent customer relations, easy to talk to, very compassionate, utmost respect and quality of service and help, took me to my waiting, clean, fresh, full tank, key in hand, loaner car without any noise from seat belts. I just won a lottery. I never saw any of this coming, none of it was I expecting before I got here.
I don’t know what else to say but the next day the car was complete, just like he said, the part arrived from California, the service I asked for was all complete. It was truly the best car experience I have ever encountered.
When my car arrived in the front, it was cleaner, washed, I know it must have been waxed, I never saw a more prettier car pull up and it was my Subaru that I love. I don’t know how they got that part, I pulled in at 5pm after work, installed, oil changed, tires rotated, and waxed and out the door by 3pm the next day. This was unreal.
I have to say again, my car I never saw so shiny, it looked like the new 2018 it was parked next to. I literally went to the back to check the license plate to confirm this was it. I think I won the lottery that next day too. Credit has to be giving to the Top notched personnel you have there from the Service Manager down to the guy the sees the car last, to the personnel in the back we don’t see, doing the work and the professional new look that car came out looking like.
I checked my records, and over the years I had over 40 vehicles just from my bank that I had financed, and a few others from different banks. I think I’m qualified to say after moving here to Delaware for a different position, living around the world, and my time here is less than 6 months, this was the best customer service and care I have ever encountered from any business not just a dealership. The service is unmatched, but the professionalism, customer relations, the tone, the family experience, they mad it fun, they made it better, they made it happen. It was a “Wow”. Thank you.
