Honest, helpful, clear, encouraging & great car! - rusty & midnight
This is my first car in 16 years, and I was not looking forward to the buying experience. When I entered the dealership, it was early in your workday, and Raymond Brozzetti was just coming in to work. He greeted me immediately, and asked how he could help. There were no speeches, no aggressive sales tactics. I was very impressed by his professional demeanor while he gently guided me, letting me lead at my own pace. He was pleasant and friendly, answering all my questions frankly and clearly. He offered some information that I did need to know, but had not thought to ask. The business office was also straightforward, clear and painless (relatively - lol!).
I bought a 2018 Ford Escape (trading in my 2003 Ford Focus Stationwagon). It only took a few minutes for this new car to fit me like a glove! BTW, thanks to the designers for putting cubbyholes everywhere I need them! The car rides like a dream, and looks and handles great! Answers to any questions I had, are either easy to figure out or right there in the book. I am 67 years old, bought many cars over the years, especially from Norris Ford when I lived in Baltimore, and this is the best car-buying experience I have ever had!
FYI, I had brought a friend with me who had worked at IG Burton Milford as a mechanic for over 30 years, and a die-hard Chevy owner. He was so impressed, with both the service from the dealership and the quality of the car, that he said his next new vehicle (probably a pickup) will be a Ford.
Unbelievable Service! - BrudLee
David "Ducky" Sheetz is a miracle worker. He found a perfect vehicle for my wife & I - the third straight car we've purchased from him. From every moment, and during every interaction, he has supported every purchase we've made, above and beyond the call of duty.
Wanted Me To Pay In Advance For Insurance Claim - RogerM
I called them to have the top on my convertible replaced as the window had been damaged. Nationwide told me to make the appointment and let them know where it was going. Hertrich’s called me back and said they won’t order the part for my car unless I pay out of pocket in advance. The part is $2000. I explained that this was an approved claim through Nationwide and they said either way the part had to be paid for in advance. I spoke with Skip, the Service Mismanager and was told the same thing. This is “company policy” because he “got burned” for $300 in parts recently.
If a company can’t front the cost of a part, how good is the service going to be - assuming they can’t afford decent techs to DO the work either.
Best part is had they been at all polite about it I would have let it go. But I was given this by Ann in parts : “I’m not about to order a $1900 part without some kind of payment up front.”
I compared this to the body shop wanting sheet metal paid for and she said that the difference is that then they have the car, and if I wanted to leave my car there as “collateral” she would order the part after I dropped it off.
I thought Hertrich’s was an upstanding name in DE - seems it’s more of a Pawn Shop.
