***Dealers to Avoid*** List

Ok this is going to be the place to post dealers to avoid.

I will keep it updated as dealers are posted.
I will also try to varify that the dealers on the list are charging over MSRP and make a note of the date and try to keep it up to date.
I will have all of them in this first post.

** DO NOT POST RUMORS, only post if you spoke with the dealership directly and they actually told you they are selling for above MSRP **

Try to keep this thread clean for me. Please only post in this thread to add dealers to the list rather than comment about them here. If you would like to comment further please start a seperate thread to do so as not to clutter this one up.

Give me as much info as you wish, but please at try to give me the dealer name, state, city, salesman name.

I will list them by state to keep it easy for everyone to find which dealers NOT to use.

Please do not list dealers unless they are charging OVER MSRP.

Thanks.

Dealers in blue have been varified by mods to be charging over MSRP and the date will be added as well as manager's name.

Dealers in black have been reported by members.

Dealers name will link to original post if available.

Pohanka Chevrolet
Chantilly, VA (DC area)
Spoke with salesman (Kirk; can't remember last name) who said they would be over MSRP, but not sure how much. It's unfortunate because they only charge $250 over invoice for everything else IIRC. This was during the summer when I spoke with him. On 10/7 I was in for an oil change and they had no idea about MSRP or ordering being available on 10/13. They swore it'd be January. I emailed them on 10/13 with a "told you so". I've never heard from them since.

Poughkeepsie Chevy
(poughkeepsie, NY).

When I originally emailed, they said since it was a "hot" car, the price would be $5000 over MSRP. I emailed him back and said that I'd found a few other local dealers charging MSRP, he responded...OK, how about $2000 over MSRP.

Johnny Londoff Chevrolet in St. Louis, off of I-270 and Dunn Road..

They would not put in writing for MSRP at delivery. Said at best, they would take highest bidders when they start to arrive.

He calls e last week to go place the order so I go with my wife and give him the actual official MSRP. He goes and talks to his manager that day. He tells me they will get MSRP on Monday. On Monday they still don't have it and this goes on till Thursday. Friday morning I call and he says $500 below MSRP, they will honor for me...etc..go over there and wait for about an hour while the salesman talks to his manager again..




The manager comes out and tells me they will not honor what the salesman has been telling you the past three weeks.. :mad0259: :mad0259:
What the HELL!!!! What a bunch of lies from them and a wasted three weeks. The manager said they marked up the Z06 in the same way when it was released and is still marked up..
Now I'm not on the first production run even though I put my name on their list last year.. DO NOT GO TO THIS DEALER AS THEY ARE CROOKS!!!!!! In Miami, Florida...

$5,000 OVER MSRP FOR LT ($2,000 for pre-order only)
$10,000 OVER MSRP FOR SS ($4,000 for pre-order only)


Who the bleep do they think they are?!?!?!

LOST MY BUSINESS NOW and Definately for LIFE!!! How in the HELL do you treat a GUARANTEED customer like that!!!!

BOOOO!:thumbdown::thumbdown::thumbdown::thumbdown::thumb down:

POOR POOR POOR POOR POOR:thumbdown:

Now please everyone do not go to this dealer in Miami, Florida for anything.. Oh and I forgot, $2,000 non refundable deposit..

Sounds like Florida dealers have some bad reputations.

2010 Stock IBM 2SS/RS

I found $80 in my jeans pocket. The kid in me said "buy nerf guns and candy!" But then the adult in me said "buy vodka, nerf guns and candy!"
