Just because they wanted to hold your down payment doesn't mean it is a scam. Gerry Lane did the same with me, and when I wasn't approved they gave my money back. Some dealers will hold your down payment as they are trying to approve you.are like that, even the main top dealers. I say this because I purchased a car from Auto say yes, and it is doing fine so far. Another thing according to your income and credit there are certain cars that you might not be eligible for, so it is best to let the dealer advise you of what kind of car you can purchase. Back to Gerry Lane, I wanted a 2012 car, but I wasn't eligible for it, so they told me I will have to get a pre-owned or a co-signer, because of my income and my credit the banks would not approve me (I make enough, but it has to be a certain amount for the lenders to approve you). I didn't want a pre-owned, so they gave my money back. The same thing at Auto Yes, so I finally got a pre-owned. Anotehr thing you guys must remember when purchasing a used car it is best to get it serviced for everything, because the cars haven't been driven or used in a while. You also must asked for the CarFax report.

John Leo. Your payment was due at DADS. You called and asked if you could pay it the next day. We said OK. The next day you didn't pay or call. And the next day, and the next day. You didn't return any of our phone messages. We tracked your vehicle and shut it down. We get a call from a dealership, asking for your pay-off. You NEVER called us to communicate that you were trying to trade in OUR vehicle. Because you didn't return our calls, I text you stating that the vehicle was about to be repossessed, and that on top of the note, the late fee and a $300.00 REPO fee, it may keep you from trading it in. That was not a threat as you suggested, it was a fact. That's when we had to get it back to DADS. Because of your lack of communication you consider us the bad guys?? You also wrote us a letter stating, " Dear DAD'S Employee's, Keep up the good work! No complaints here. (smiley face) Chevy's Rule, Sincerely, John....Sincerely, DADS Employee's
I don't know about all the bad reviews, but my experience was exceptional. Michael Corsentino made promised to me before the sale of the truck I bought. Everything he promised was taken care of. This included replacing a broken motorized mirror on the truck which was out of pocket for him. A noise I heard was serviced and cleared up. I was and am fully satisfied with the Corsentino family business. I was very pleased with my salesman, Shane. I found Mr. Michael to be a man of his word. The finance man went out of his way to get the lowest possible interest for my loan. I do plan on returning to get my son a vehicle in just a few months. The prices on the vehicles are reasonable and my vehicle was priced $2,000.00 below the Kelly Blue Book value. I have and will recommend this dealer to my friends. Give them a try. I know you can't satisfy everyone all the time, but I was and am very satisfied with my experience and sale. Robert
y far the best car buying experience we have ever had. We had been in the market for a truck for a while when we happened to drive past this wonderful dealership. I was so worn out from the numerous dealerships we had already had been to in the last couple of months, but my husband insisted. Stopping was the best thing we could have ever done. The guys there were beyond professional and very personable people. They were straight forward with us about what they were able to achieve, and honored every agreement they made pertaining to their warranty and our vehicle. You do not see this kind of business interaction anymore...so we are very grateful. So if your in need of a nice reliable vehicle, but want to take the stress and annoyance out of the car buying experience then your first stop should be here & Tell them Angie says Hi and thank you because I love my F150!
The car was great, the experience checking in and out was fast and fine, except that they changed me for 30 days (my original contract), which I didn't notice at check-in, instead of 20 days that I actually had the car. I've called customer service twice, one rep was nice, said they have to send an email to the area manager who will contact me to adjust my charges. She said I would here from the manager before the close of business at 6 PM. After no contact after a few days, I called again to customer service. I was polite and respectful, but this rep was rude and dismissive. She said I would just have to wait until the area manager got around to me. After I insisted she said she would send another message. When I asked, she said there was nothing else I could do. They owe me $400+, I haven't heard from anyone and it's been a couple weeks.
Picking up the car was good, the clerk helping me was friendly and explained everything well. The car drove fine and had no problems. However; after dropping off the car, my fiancée realized that she could not find her wallet. She called the store and asked the person on the phone if she could check the car for the missing wallet. The person claims to have looked and not found it. They then rented the car to someone else. The next day, the woman who rented the car after us called and let us know that she had found the wallet in the car and wanted to return it. Somewhere in the process, $100 was stolen from the wallet. While I realize it is not Enterprises responsibility to check each car for forgotten items, they lied to my fiancée by claiming to have checked the car for her wallet and not finding it.
My wife and I are very pleased with the two Vehicles we have bought from this car lot. They sold us quality vehicles and gave great service. I appreciate their quick response in qualifying us and leaving the same day with the vehicles we picked. Give this place a chance to show what service is all about. I needed to add that this car lot was able to give me a decent trade in even after I went to three other Dealer ships that wouldn't even consider a fair trade due to cosmetic issues Patrick and Rodney treated my family with respect and help us with the two Vehicles I talked about earlier. They also introduce me to their mechanics if I every need repairs. They are truly a blessing to my family! I recommend this car lot to anyone that is looking for Quality Used Vehicle. I will be a repeat customer.
Contrary to the other rating. I found the ladies in parts department most knowledgeable. The red headed lady that helped me the last time knew her stuff and where to find the numbers necessary to order the part I needed. Very difficult to call them, I called four times and was put on hold. Never did talk to anyone so I drove to the business and walked right up to the counter and was waited on by the aforementioned "red headed Lady". Of course, I didn't have the correct numbers so I had to drive back home and get them. Called and asked for parts, was put on hold for 10 minutes so I hung up and called again asking for the red headed lady in parts, she picked up immediately.......go figure !!!
I would tell my best friend to definitely try this place out. On Feb 21, 2012, my car started making noise under the hood. Noise was so bad that I was not even sure I would make it to the dealership. The next morning I called tthe service department and the gentleman in charge CAME out to my home. He made some temporary repairs to get to the service area and an hour later, 'Bubba' had me on my way. No problems since then. I am holding out on the other star because I am waiting on some items that were suppose to been order weeks ago. But, overall, service was good. This is the 2nd car that I have brought from them (no major issues with the 1st one). Plan on trading up with them in the future.
I highly recommend Acadian Car Supercenter if your to buy a car. thanks to Michael and Jacque who went far beyond what expected them to do for me . The bank declined my loan after I drove off the lot, was out of town in Iowa ,learning this news , they told not worry about a thing ,they would make sure that it would all work out. still a little doubtful ,but they keep there word and did everything they promised and more .So today because of Acadian I am driving the same car I drove off in three months ago, So if your not sure where to buy a car from due to past issues , look no further , ACADIAN USED CAR SUPERCENTER, Thank you ,David York
