Needed recall service, got it (and quick too!) - Andthelittlebit
My experience with the shop -in person- was great! Very friendly and great CS in the service department! However, this was my third attempt with calling to make an appointment and both calls were very unpleasant (and I say both calls because the second try, there was no answer). The first time I called, the woman (secretary?) I spoke with over the phone had an unpleasant demeanor and made it extremely uncomfortable for me to converse with her. This happened during both calls. Thankfully I was transferred to two different people in better moods who both had told me that the secretary was “in a mood” or “having a bad day”. Usually these types of things don’t bother me and I tend to let them go, which is why I pursued an appointment, but two unpleasant calls exceeds my personal tolerance of acceptable CS. This is why I have rated 3 stars.

Had a great experience, staff was knowledgeable very supportive. The turn around for the service work was fast and the care they took to protect my car was much appreciated.
Selling you parts you don't want - cmoore
When my truck broke down on the side of the road and had to be towed there I was originally told by two mechanics who helps me that it needed a starter. Yes originally I did tell them to put a starter on but then they called me and said that the problem was not the starter and that they need a diagnostic I was under the impression that I was going to be charged for a starter and a diagnostic I told them no do not put the starter on through the diagnostic then when I go to pay for it they went ahead and put the starter on and charged me over $400. Now they don't want to take the starter back because they're lying and swearing that did the end of the conversation that that's what I wanted when it is. I will never go there again and I would never recommend this to anyone else. Very disappointed in the service
What Customer Service? - DaGrinch
Bought a used Jeep Liberty from an individual and it came with only one key. I bought a blank key from an outside source and had my son go to Bender's to have the key cut and programmed. They wouldn't touch it because it wasn't a MOPAR key. I knew I was risking the blank to be bad - what difference does it make to them? They were going to be paid for their time and effort. Nope, wouldn't touch it.
This would have been the perfect opportunity for this dealership to establish a good rapport - never know, I might need parts for the used Liberty and with a good experience, there's always the possibility I'd be back. They don't have to worry about it now.
My car (2010 challenger) broke down outside of Accident... - Clevertitan
My car (2010 challenger) broke down outside of Accident MD 7 weeks ago. Needless to say it is still not fixed. The first week they had other work and could not look at my car to the end of the week (totally understand) The second week they informed me that it was the timing belt that broke, later that week they informed me that some of the valves were not holding pressure, resulting in them having to take the engine apart for repair. Weeks 3-5 they were ripping the motor apart and waiting for back ordered parts. On saturday at the end of week 6 after calling they informed me that it was all good it just needed to be timed. I called back tuesday where they again informed me its all good just needs timed.. so i called today (2-20-2014) to confirm the time i can pick up my car friday, only to be informed that there is still a cyclinder issues and it may be ready next week. As of right now Dodge corprate has "launched" a service review/investigation. After having Dodge HQ call them the service manager said he would provide me a rental car. If the service department is a example of this dealership i would stay very far away. Just a finishing note- They have never called me to update me on the repair work, i have had to call them everytime. Please beware.

I just bought a new 2015 Dodge Journey from Elkins Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram. I called them about a particular Journey I saw on their website. After emphasizing that I was very interested in that specific Journey and was ready to buy that weekend, my salesman Gary talked with his sales manager and called me back about 15 minutes later with an excellent price. We went over the terms and then Gary sent me an e-mail breaking down the price to make sure we were on the same page.
I live about 90 minutes away from the dealership. When I got there, I was greeted warmly and they had the car I was interested in ready with a new wash and a full tank of gas. They let me take it on a test drive by myself, no staff. We got back, finished reviewing incentives to see if there were any additional ones I qualified for (there weren't) and shook hands on the price we had discussed earlier. They were able to get me a competitive interest rate through PNC Bank.
We went over to the co-owned Ford dealership's building so they could detail the car and do the paperwork. The financing guy explained all of the warranty options but was not pushy. I explained my driving habits (I drive 25k+ miles a year) and after reviewing the available options, said he couldn't find any appropriate for me.
The only (minor) negative with the transaction was that I had asked them to not put their decal on the car, but as I realized after I had already pulled away, they had anyway. I'm in the process of removing it.
