They Damage my car and Refuse to fix it. - Gina
I wish I had read these reviews before taking my car here. Stay far away as possible. Had to take my car here because the person who was at fault had USAA insurance and this is their preferred provider. They fixed the front of my car fine. But also somehow damaged the sides, and broke off my antenna. They tried to tell me it was like that even though looking at the photos you can see it wasn't. Now I have to take my time and go through small claims court. I will continue to warn as many people as I can to stay away from blossom on shadeland.
Hello, all! If you're reading these reviews, I bet... - Josh_M
Hello, all! If you're reading these reviews, I bet you're probably in the market for a new vehicle. Well, I'm not here to tell you if Gates is the place for your new purchase, but I am quite prepared to say you should never try to get a vehicle serviced at this dealership!
I came to Gate and attempted to have my low-mileage, under-warranty vehicle diagnosed for a knocking sound. After a 2.5 hour wait (was told 1 hour, and watched another customer enter, get service, a loaner, and leave before me) a serviceman approached me and outright refused to diagnose the issue, stating their refusal was due to 'snow on the ground', and that I should come back when it's nicer outside. Seriously! As soon as I left their service center and hit the road at 20mph, the knocking was CLEARLY audible! After calling the service center to set a date and time *they* find appropriate, and not being given one, I requested to speak to the floor manager. The gentleman I spoke to was very pleasant and helpful, but said he could not arrange a diagnostic until the following week, which I found unacceptable.
I'm sure their salesman are quite genial and the deals superb, but I would suggest staying away from their service center: they seem selective about who they want to serve and who they do not.
BEWARE IF YOUR FROM OUT OF TOWN!!!! - never again
well they are friendly enough but if your from out of town watch out!!!! My car was towed there, they tell me I need a water pump, so I say go ahead for about a $100.00 or so more then it would cost at home. It's suppose to be under $500.00. Then afterwards when I think I can go home they bring it out & it runs worse then it ever did. misfiring so bad the car shakes & then they tell me it needs more work but they don't know for sure if that will fix it but they will need another $1,300.00 on top of the almost $600.00 I already owe (what happened to under $500) this is with a $24.00 an hour discount, REALLY!! so instead I had it towed 140 miles back home to a mechanic I trust!
Well had my mechanic check it out they forgot to put 4 bolts, in 2 to the air pump & 2 to the bracket, vacuum line not hooked up on the air pump & also on the water pump the gaskets had way to MUCH permatex & was already ripping & if this wasn't enough the part they were trying to sell me was gonna be $500.00 if they could find it but remember it might not fix the problem well he was right about that, it didn't need that part & now it's running great so glad I had it towed home I sure wished I would have done it to begin with I would of saved $400.00 I think they ripped me off!!! I also noticed on their website all the comments were good really I wonder why they don't show the bad ones.
THIS IS A REBUTTAL TO THE ABOVE POST:
I would like to add that I did jump the gun a little bit, I had called quite a bit & asked for the owner I was sent to v/m & just hung up, so finally I left a mess. the owner c/b the next day & I was gone. Now the last 2 days I've left mess. & this morn. Jay c/b he was the gentlemen who drove me half the way back on 7/3/17 because I had no transportation & with it being the holiday, as I said before he was very friendly. the owner felt that I really didn't give him a chance to fix the problem which I guess I really didn't, I should of been on this a lot sooner but life is busy. Anyhow after talking w/ Jay it looks like we have came to an agreement. He assured me that they try to help people as much as they can & I don't think anybody else would of drove me half way back to Ft. Wayne & it did keep my grandson & me from being stranded.
a follow up to our agreement Well of course they try to cheat me again I told Ray I would agree to half of my money back which is around $280.00, so last week I get a check for $200.00 so instead of bad mouthing them this time I thought I would give the owner another chance so I called today & his words sometimes we just don't get what we want when it comes to an older car like yours & I have done all I can do. I think all he wanted was the bad review off his page & he also reminded me that he's been in business for 30 + years well what ever maybe they just try to rip off people from out of town! I like how they put not implying a warranty, but isn't this check proof of their guilt, thank goodness I called the credit card company again & they gave me more time Re: this matter. So let this be a lesson to you all, if you charge something on your credit cards you have 90 days to file a complaint & longer if you keep in touch with your credit card co.
SO OUT OF TOWNERS BEWARE OF THIS COMPANY!!!!!!!!
