Unethical unprofessional outdated sleazy car dealership business practices used. For a car dealership that is supposedly “America’s #1 Subaru Dealership” they truly have lowered the bar for Subaru’s brand and neighboring Dealerships.
Subaru of Glendale Dealer #090796 has attained their ranking by ripping off customers using bullying, bait and switch tactics and flat out lying to customers. Truly review your paperwork in depth as you will find inconsistencies, do not let them rush you read the fine print. The finance department with people such as John Mehrani who has worked in the business for over 20+ years preys on individuals who do not know their credit rating and who have been waiting there for hours. I’ve witnessed first hand waiting in the lobby to speak to the finance department overhearing their conversations belittling customers and laughing at how they did a “deal”.
In addition do not buy the GAP or any other warranty, they will flat out lie to you and make you jump unnecessary hoops in the event you need to cancel or revise.
I was told and flat out lied to by Omar Bashal and John Mehrami that I needed a notarized letter to cancel Subaru’s Security Maintenance Agreement. After scheduling a traveling notary and have them come to the dealership to notarize a letter, I was then told the Subaru Security Maintenance Agreement purchase cannot be cancelled. Omar Bashal even looked up my contract and lied again.
I was told they can only cancel GAP insurance purchased - Omar then printed out a piece of paper and said sign this and print your name. Then explicitly told my Omar the Subaru Added Security Maintenance Agreement cannot be removed - once your purchase it is not refundable (another lie).
After speaking to another I was told these items can be cancelled and it is unnecessary and unethical to have a letter notarized to remove his.
Note: you do not need a notary to cancel GAP or Security Maintenance Agreements - they told us we needed to have a letter notarized. John Mehrani & Omar Bashal you are liars and I have it on video!
Considering after you purchase they ask you more than 10 times to leave a great review on yelp and when the manufacturer sends a review form to please give them high marks. That will certainly get their attention.
