UPDATE: After Chad Probst and the Vorderman team learned about my recent service experience through the online reviews they immediately reached out to rectify the situation and retain me as a customer. They were very apologetic and understood where my frustration stemmed from. Vorderman has agreed to address any issues, free of charge, with my vehicle that has resulted from my recent service with them... they even gave me a loaner car for the duration of the service. If everything goes well this time around, I will be returning to Vorderman for future servicing of my GTI. AVOID: Worst dealership experience ever! Too many details to get into but just moved to Indiana from Florida with my '09 GTI and needed an expert diagnosis on my car. After being met by a pompous service advisor, on the way out of the dealership my wife and I witnessed the lot boy doing donuts with my car in the back of the parking lot. Not only did Vorderman NOT repair one of the issues they admitted it was there and said it was normal for the climate. When I confronted them about why other VWs don't make the noise they claimed it is the result of a different design. So instead of fixing the issue that I found, they decided to fix something else and try to make me believe it would fix the noise. Secondly, they misdiagnosed my anti lock brakes failing in the snow (pretty dangerous) and claimed it was fixed when they sent me off on the road... After putting my foot into the brake to test it myself the ABS failed again... Tech came for a ride along and told me it was acting normally. After insisting he was wrong, a second diagnostic scan uncovered a fault ABS Control Module.... Oh I almost forgot, they also DESTROYED one of my wheels by running into the vehicle lift. Although they offered to replace it at no charge, it still should have never happened. After all was said and done, they tried to up charge me for work that was covered under my extended warranty. Only after I called the warranty company myself and verified all the charges did the service advisor adjust the bill. I have never been compelled to write a review until now... Will also file a formal complaint with the BBB.

"I want to say thank god for a dealership like this!!! To make a long story short, we were on our way home from Nashville TN, when our van just quit running. (11:30 pm) we contacted our insurance company who eventually got us to a hotel (3:00 am) 4 miles up the road. I should add here that my wife,who is disabled , my elderly mother, and my daughter and her boyfriend are with me. 9:00 am I call the insurance towing company, and get PLAYED OFF, ""we'll call you back when we can get to you"" good hands!!!!!!!!!! ha!!!! I decided to catch a cab back out to where the van was to see if I could get it running, nope! it's dead. we decided to give up on the insurance and find a towing company on our own. my wife had found Parker towing , Who suggested that we have the van towed to Glenbrook Dodge Chrysler Jeep Fiat. Thank God , Parker towing picked up me and the van, while Glenbrook sent a shuttle over to pick up the rest of my family. As we pull into the dealership I see my family waiting in the waiting area. They actually look as though they are being pampered. I spoke to Roger Ake, told him what I thought was wrong, and he promptly had the van diagnosed ( computer melt down on the coil driver ) he explained that the part had to be ordered and they couldn't get it until morning. then he offered to get us a rental car, which we accepted. I drove my family the rest of the way home (100 miles). one good nights sleep later and Roger called saying that the van was fixed. so I drove back and picked it up. I am usually happy with just running, but on my way home I notice that this van not only runs, it runs better than it ever has, along with a few bonus's. The cruise control now works and it seems to drive straighter than ever. I just want to thank all of the service counter and tech crew for showing us the compassion and understanding that we deserve, for giving us peace of mind and generally taking care of us, in this very stressful situation. If I lived closer I would bring my vehicle to Glenbrook every time I needed something done.( they have some great deals) and the next time I'm in the market for a new vehicle, I'll be sure to shop here first."
Looked at several dealers around but Glenbrook dodge is the only one who called me back and took me seriously, they really gave me a great deal melissa poore was amazing, she took her time with us and even dealt with our crazy life, she showed us multiple cars and finally fell in love with a dart. . She showed us a brand new 2013 orange dart and we left the same day with it, 0 down and amazing monthly payment, she impressed us so much that 2 days later we came back traded in my husband and got a 2011 jeep patriot, once again amazing monthly payments and was so understanding on how hard yet exciting for my husband to trade in his car he bought with iraq money. We not only praise her and the car lot but is bringing our friends who's looking for cars to her! Thanks again Glenbrook dodge and Melissa poore!
