Hi all. I live in CA and went to a local dealer. They had a Midnight Race Blue Coupe "coming in a week", but the sales rep would not give me the order number after my deposit. I called another rep to inquire about the same care, got the order number, then after "I" checked the car wasn't scheduled to be built for another month. Sleazy. Got my deposit back.

The story ends well. I just had the most amazing car purchase experience EVER with Terry Goodin and Coughlin Chevrolet in OH. Out of state. It was so easy.

I called, didn't realize it was after hours :eek: but Terry picked up the phone. I inquired about the exact car I saw on Rick Conti's website. He call me about an hour later with the specs. I called his cell the next day, he was off :eek: but answered the phone anyway. Told him I wanted the car. That afternoon all paperwork was sent overnight to me. I completed it, returned the next day and now I just booked a flight to Columbus to pick her up an drive back to CA.

More to come on the pick up and journey back coming up.

But, if you're interested in buying a car, talk to Terry, regardless of where you live!

A true class act there at Coughlin. Rick Conti was my salesman but they're all fantastic folks. The absolute BEST car-buying experience I've ever had. Be sure to tell Rick "hi" from Clark in Texas! And CONGRATS!!!

Will you please identify the dealer local to the Bay Area with whom you were unhappy?

Boardwalk, really surprised as they have good reviews on forums. Could have been miscommunication, as well.

Thanks. Who was the sales rep. who would not initially give you the order number?

Rather not mention names, it's behind me. Look forward and this positive, I try :D
Well, for someone with a deposit at Boardwalk, I have a vested interest in the experience of others.
