on late afternoon, Thursday, 30 august 2018 I had my 2001 H1 hummer towed to Royal GMC Buick, 815 W. Automall Drive, Tucson, AZ 85705. (the vehicle would crank but the engine would not turnover (start). on Friday, 31 august 2018 I went to the dealership to check on the vehicle. at that time I met service advisor Mr. Chris Savastano and Master ASE and GM Certified Technician Mr. Joshua Dewitt. They both briefed me on the immediate status of the vehicle. Mr. Dewitt had already performed troubleshooting on the vehicle and got it to start so that it could be moved, under its own power, to a safer, out of the way, location prior to actually being worked on. that was the FIRST thing that impressed me about this duo of service advisor and certified technician. before I left the dealership I was presented with a verbal plan on how the troubleshooting and possible repair actions would proceed. no promises were made as to when the vehicle would be ready; however, there were assurances made that the mechanical problem would be identified and the vehicle repaired.
during the entire two week process Mr. Savastano kept me informed as to the status of the job and the progress being made. I also had an occasion to speak with Mr. Dewitt and he provided me with his troubleshooting methodology and his opinion as to what might have caused the failure of the engine to start.
on Friday, Friday, 31 august I was able to pick up the vehicle. it was in perfect running condition. and I would like to add that it was cleaner both inside and out than when it arrived at the dealership! this was the SECOND thing that most impressed me.
Mr. Savastano was completely professional and was available to talk to me for as long as I required. and his pricing for the job was outstanding, taking into consideration what I had previously paid for labor at Royal Hummer on speedway and Columbus and also taking into account my prior military service.
what impressed me the MOST was Mr. Dewitt's qualifications as a military trained HUMVEE mechanic! when I first learned of that I immediately felt relief and confidence that my vehicle was in good hands. also impressive was Mr. Dewitt's obvious enthusiasm for his job and his eagerness to tackle the challenge of isolating the problem(s) with my vehicle. HE DID AN OUTSTANDING JOB of identifying and correcting the problems within my vehicle's engine, charging system, and "lift" pump system.
I will most definitely be returning to this Royal location for any future H1 Hummer needs.
