I have had so many problems with Oak Tree Mazda, that it is difficult to know just where to start:
I live in Los Angeles and saw a used Audi for sale. It was a rare model at a decent price, so I drove all the way down there to purchase it. Salesman was great, no problem there. Financing offered me an interest rate I wasn't thrilled with but said I had five days to secure my own financing before everything was finalized. I also purchased the extended warranty at that time, due to the fact that it was a used Audi, and repairs have known to be expensive. The warranty, by the way, was $5k, so not cheap.
The next day, I secured financing through BofA at a far better rate, so I immediately called them at the finance department. I left a message on the voicemail, but nobody returned my call. I ended calling 2-3 times a day, where the receptionist knew who I was when I called, and nobody was available and nobody would return my call. My belief because they wanted their financing to go through. I had to call corporate to complain, and then I received a call back. Financing was finally fixed....
Two months later, I still had not received my registration tags, so I called them. They said they sent the paperwork, but the DMV is sometimes slow, not to worry as the temporary they gave me was a for three months. Another month went buy, and still no tags. I called the DMV, they said registration is on hold, because they still have not received any paperwork from Oak Tree, and that nobody has even put the car in my name. Now I am livid. I called to have this taken care of..... nobody to talk to, left a message, and nobody has called me back. I have called Corporate once again to complain and get this rectified.
About a month ago, I cancelled my extended warranty through United States Warranty, as I thought I could use the money and take my chances. US Warranty, by the way, were excellent with prompt response and service. I did use them once, as the bluetooth module on the car I bought didn't work. I didn't realize that till a week later when trying to set up my phone. They never disclosed that, but my fault for not checking. An Audi repair service contacted them for payment and said they were great to deal with and very prompt.....So US Warranty cancelled my coverage, as requested, sent the letter back to Oak Tree, where they said I would receive a check back from them. No call, no e-mail from them whatsoever. I called them, and guess what, nobody has returned my call.
I hope this helps somebody. Understand to not judge the book by the sales department. Sales is usually going to be the nicest, as they want to sell you something. It's after they've received your money is when they earn their reputation. I've been in retail management for over 20 years for a major company, so I understand proper customer service forward and backward. This has to be some of the worst service I have ever received. I could not Imagine operating like this. I highly recommend you do not purchase from them, but if you do, have everything arranged beforehand, so you do not have to use or depend on them for anything in the future.
