Thumbs up Had a good experience @ the Dealer !!!! Long read guys!!

This is a long story, I'll try and keep it short. Just got my Jeep back from the dealer. I was getting the ETC light , and a bad TPMS. I had to flatbed her to the dealer, I choose a different dealer since i had a nightmare of time in the past dealing with the dealer i purchased my jeep from. So I prepared myself , knowing I would have to leave the jeep there for a few days. Long story short I Dropped it on Saturday, got a call back saturday evening telling me they had to order a new throttle position sensor and brake overlay. The parts wont be in till Wed's they said. Ok so im searching for the right words to tell them to plz be careful, and not sound like the OCD owner that i can be, No need , the manager said Since its a SRT8 he doesnt want to leave it parked out side. Great. but im still uneasy, We've all heard dealers tell us one thing and someone in the shop does something else. So Im cranky as hell at home, making everyone miserable. LOL , Saturday night we get a hell of a thunder storm, Im like FC*@ i hope my jeep is not outside. Sunday morning im up at the crack, drive to the dealer to check it out. There she was parked inside, in an empty bay away from where all the work gets done, NICE !!! Three more SRT8-Less days to go, and they still have to put the part in. Im more at ease tho. Tuesday rolls around and i get a call telling me my Jeep is ready. O Yeah !! The OCD kicks in again because i could not wait for my wife to take me, I drove my DD there, get the keys, do the walk around, pop the hood, check the glove box, double check the rims, bumper, everything looks good. Im even glad they dndt try and wash it. So i left my DD there and took the jeep home.

Im Glad the dealer under promised and over delivered!!!
Dodge Chrysler Jeep City in Burlington NJ.

O yeah they tried to sell me a mini van!!! NOT !!!!! I'd get a big azz expedition first.

Re: Had a good experience @ the Dealer !!!! Long read guys!!

I'm always the same way you are bro... I had to take my Jeep in for a big hose leak and they had to order parts in and that it would be 4-5 days. They wanted to keep the Jeep there until the parts got in but I told them I'm taking my Jeep home and to call me when the parts are in. I only live about 3 miles from the dealership so I drove it home and parked it. There was no chance in hell I was trusting them with it and I dont even have an SRT! hah... glad it went well for you!

Re: Had a good experience @ the Dealer !!!! Long read guys!!

I had bad news that my favorite dealer that i always deal with was closing. But they renegotiated with Chrysler and they were allowed to stay. My fav. dealer is Naperville Jeep Dodge in Lisle-Naperville, and i'm glad they are staying.

Re: Had a good experience @ the Dealer !!!! Long read guys!!

its always good to hear about "good" experiences with dealerships cause there are not very many.

But i agree about being uneasy about where your jeep is, what happening, making sure its ok, etc.

You find the right dealer and you never go else where.

I wont use anyone but Kenny, at Westbury jeep on Long Island. I'd actually be willing to pay extra just to know my car is in his hands.
