Unfortunately, my experience at Ted Britt was awful; the customer service and communication was beyond pitiful.
I dropped my car off on December 23rd, received the service report from Richard, left him a voicemail to go ahead and start the work on my car .. four hours later after not hearing back, I called his direct line once more, left an additional voicemail, and called the general service number and asked if they could relay the message to Richard to go ahead and start my car. The woman told me that she could not do that.
I called the next day to follow up and try to get the message to Richard to do the work on my car, (mind you; $3,000 worth of work), and found out they were closed for the holiday (I support this fully, but as a previous employee of Pohanka Lexus who never closed, I was unaware that the dealership would be closed) and when I called the day after Christmas, I was told that Richard was off for the weekend. In what world do you work in customer service, know you will be leaving the office for FOUR days, and not check your voicemails / return calls before you leave?
During this time I once again called the general service number and asked that my message be relayed, I continued to be told no, and one kind woman even pretended to write down a message for me and told me a service manager would be in touch that day. I never heard from them.
On Tuesday December 28th, FIVE days after dropping my car off, I received a phone call from Richard who proceeded to tell me he hasn't heard back from me, I did not leave him a voicemail, and he's wondering if we should do the work on the car. I kindly told Richard I have REPEATEDLY left him messages in a number of ways, to which he responded with an apology and told me he would do better in the communication.
Richard followed up the next day to give me an update on the car (Tuesday the 29th) and said he would talk to us soon. This is the last time we ever heard from Richard.
On Saturday January 2, we called the dealership ONCE AGAIN, to get an update on the vehicle, and were told that Richard was out today and there was no one else we could talk to. After putting our foot down for lack of a better term, we were told someone else would call us back. The mechanic did finally call that afternoon to report the car was finished.
Richard NEVER followed up on this or closed out with us as his customer. On his business card, it lists Richard as an assistant service manager; I would have expected way better from someone with this title.
I am FLOORED at the fact that we paid this dealership $3,000 (WAY overcharged), and will NEVER give them the opportunity to work with me, or my family, ever again.
