Re: Long Island Area Dealer

Nothing major I would say. Just alot of minor crap that they looked at or fixed. There thing is if the problem doesnt happen in front of them than they can't fix or replace anything. I have problems with my transmission but they say its fine and a lease so don't worry about it. I take my jeep there for regular service also. I bought my current Jeep from them and it was a horrible experiance and thats putting it nicely.

Re: Long Island Area Dealer

I've had very good experiences at East Hills service, but nothing has gone wrong with my GC so far, just regular maintenance. I hear garden city service is good also

Re: Long Island Area Dealer

I've gotten three of my GC's through Westbury, and each time it was a horrible experience...pressure to buy crap from the sales manager is insane. However, they have a huge selection and they always were good with my trades. Their service department has great hours, loaners and I've never had an issue with them in that regard.

I leased my 2006 through East Hills and had a great experience, and they treated me great...haven't been back there since though.

I bought my 13 Jeep from Huntington also and had a very good experience. I bought from Kevin Mahoney and delt with him mostly through emails at first (you can find his email on their website). He is a salesman but is in charge to do whatever he wants. No pressure at all, and there was no pressure from the finance manager either. The only thing i was asked at signing was "are u interested in an extended warranty".. I said no, he said ok, I signed the papers and left. Very very happy with Kevin..
But on a side note, their service dept is absolutely horrible. Kevin gave me free oil changes for life & I really hate even going there to get them for free.

Re: Long Island Area Dealer

We did our test drive at Huntington Commack. Met with Vaughn who we absolutely loved and we really wanted to buy the car from him, but his manager wouldn't allow him to meet the price we were looking to pay (two other dealers eventually did accept the same figures). Real shame. When you find a great salesperson and feel like you have a good "match," you'd like to have them get the sale.

As it was, Manny at Town & Country was awesome as well. He's a great guy and my sales experience was everything I could have hoped for there. Unfortunately, since they're a small mom & pop shop, I don't think their service department was prepared for the issues I encountered with my Jeep, so I'm not going back if I manage to get the buyback from Chrysler.

Re: Long Island Area Dealer

Huntington Jeep is the best. Probably the only honest dealer in the area. Made a trip from NYC there becouse this was the only no BS response that I've got from about 10 or so dealers that I've contacted. Worked with Keith Frida there to put the order in. Zero pressure.

Ordering went so easy that I was worried that will get screwed over during pickup. In and out of the dealership in 15 minutes. No gimmicks. Me and my wife were shocked. The price was off by 60 bucks but they expkained to me that they counted tax incorrectly.

Could I get a better deal, maybe? I went with them becouse they were trustworthy and transparant as far as numbers and process is concerned. I would buy from them again in a heartbeat.

Re: Long Island Area Dealer

Ended up going to Westbury. They gave the best price of most of the dealerships that I went to. Wasnt hassled or pressured into anything, even got them to eat my trade and some of the upfront fees.

I'm sure you weren't looking to pay under invoice...... something they would not do at all. And of course they said no one else would do that either!

Their sales managers all told me no one would sell me a WK2 at that price but of course they were full of sh*t, and I got my price the next day from one of their smaller competitors. You would think the largest dealer on the east coast would be able to crush the smaller guys on price, due to their larger volume, but shop policy there is to maximize profit on every deal. No one gets a great deal there!!

I actually had this happen to me at the East Hills dealership. I had originally talked to them about buying a used 2012 or new 2014. Right before i jumped on the Koons groupbuy, i went into the East Hills dealership to try and offer them the chance to match the 7% under invoice, or at least come close enough to save me the trip and all that. Not only did they refuse but they also basically told me that i'm being scammed, that they probably wouldn't even service it if there are warranty issues (lol), and that it's in my best interests to cancel my credit card before the Koons dealership maxed out my credit card. LOL, overall i left there shaking my head.

I only just got my deposit back from them last week, thanks to Amex getting involved. Love how they told you to watch for the scammers....

Re: Long Island Area Dealer

How is the service department at Browns? I bought a new Subaru from them back in 2003 and only went in for maintenance. Never had any issues with it, so I don't know how they'd handle anything major. What has your experience been? They're the closest dealer to me.
