The worst Mercedes dealership experience

By rockymae on 8/12/2019 at 4:24 PM.

First and foremost, I rarely if ever write reviews but due to my experience at Mercedes of Chantilly, I needed to speak out and let the public know and understand what transpired and at the end of my review I will let you determine so that you can come to your own conclusions. Approximately 30 days ago I purchased a CPO GLE 350 with 20K miles with an additional 4-year warranty that we purchased (practically brand new) from Mercedes of Chantilly for my wife, salesperson named "Norris" assisted us in the purchase process. Initial contact through the test drive, negotiation he seemed professional and courteous. We went through the normal back and forth negotiations and finally was assisted by Matt, Norris's sales manager after some additional negotiations we closed the deal. During our test drive we noticed the front plastic frame around the navigation was "SUN FADED and damaged" we mentioned it to Norris and he said it was missed as part or the CPO detailing process and that they will replace it. So as part of the "WE OWE" they would replace the plastic frame, detail the car which was not done when we purchased the car due to time and lastly order the DMV new tags. Norris told us quote" come by Tuesday to get the car detailed and order the plastic frame part" and to come see him. I called Norris on Monday the day prior and left a Message that my wife will be stopping by the dealership as specified by Norris" No return phone call, wife visited the dealer as agreed and Norris was not working that day (the day he asked us to come in). My wife went to the service department and told them about the part and detailing service and they had no "record' of either from Norris or anyone. So, my wife spoke to one of the service managers were the service managers discussing this matter) and they told her they will order the part. I called Norris the very next day (straight into VM and told him what happened, called the very next day again straight to VM again, several days go by no return call. This time I call Matt he's sales manager straight to VM (of course) left 2 VM no callback. After my 5th attempt with both Norris and Matt Norris calls back and says the parts are ordered and detailing will be done when the tags arrive. Fast forward 27 days from the date of purchase, we get a call that the tags arrived (30 days that the tags arrived) we visit the service dept. and proceed to tell one of the advisers we are here for Tags, part and detail. Surprise! Surprise! they have no record of any part being ordered or detailing for our vehicle but they did have the Tags which took 30 days. Norris was at the dealership and put on the tags when I asked about the parts, he said please wait and he proceeded to speak with the service adviser and of course no record and parts not ordered and no detailing. Now, my patient metered has almost expired at this point. When I confronted Norris, he proceeded to say, we were supposed to call him first well sir I did 6 times with no return phone calls and 2 calls to your Sales manager with no return calls. Make a long story short parts were ordered again and of course they will call us again when the parts arrive, Mr. Norris just disappeared as he didn't want to deal with the true aspect of customer service which is to see the problem to a resolution not walk away, well at that point I was done with Mr. Norris anyway. I just want to note that this is the 8th Mercedes that I am purchasing (2 from NYC, 5 from MB Tysons and the first one with MB Chantilly). So I have a good idea of what to expect when purchasing a Mercedes and what is expected. This message is to the GM Burt and the Owner of MB Chantilly Mr. Penske, your employees represent your company and every word and action that they say and do reflects on MB Chantilly. All my years of purchasing MB and the unprecedented exceptional service by MB elsewhere is why consumers like us buy MB. This by far has been the worst experience at a MB dealership, it is absolutely a poor representation of MB and I will make sure that MB North America hears what I have to say. Gentlemen good news travels slow but bad news travels fast in this day and age of the internet. If truth is absolute, with my personality I detailed and recorded every event as it unfolded and if anyone of your employees disputes the review, please contact me for full detail of the records and events. Lastly, I would like to conclude this by saying that even several of the service, help who were super nice actually told me that there are so many customer complaints at MB Chantilly they are planning to quit and go elsewhere. As a prior business owner, I hope that the GM and owner understand what's happening at the dealership, I will not recommend this dealership to anyone.

I would not recommend this dealer.

Poor Business Ethics

By CarGal on 6/26/2019 at 3:15 PM. Helped by Bert ONeal.

Just an awful experience. They sold me a car that should be in a junkyard. I drove it approximately 125 miles and the transmission fell apart while a technician with Mercedes Benz Richmond was driving it.

I would not recommend this dealer.

Just Awful

By Splainin on 6/25/2019 at 11:24 PM. Helped by Matt DoCampo.

I purchased a used car from Mercedes Benz Chantilly in March 2019 thinking I made a good decision with a dealer I could trust. I drove it home to Richmond and then to shop for maintenance. A technician from Mercedes Benz Richmond was driving it when the transmission gave out. I have already spent $5700 on repairs which I was okay with and now it needs a $6600 transmission. It was proposed that I could put the amount I paid for the car toward another car but that is not acceptable.

I would not recommend this dealer.

You may get white floor mats over your black carpet

By Buyer Beware on 6/3/2019 at 5:27 PM.

We just did a long distance purchase of a luxurious premium certified pre-owned 2017 E300 with macchiato color carpet and interior. Our car was delivered 2 days ago. They discarded the old matching color floor mats and replaced them with new ones. However, they put black mats over the off white carpet and they look terrible. Last night we contacted our salesman, and made the reasonable request for the floor mats to match the carpet. His answer was “Unfortunately, we are not able to exchange the floor mats for a pre-owned car.” Imagine how petty! We certainly would never transact again with this dealer, nor recommend them to anyone. There are many other good dealers of luxury cars to do business with than bothering with this one. Buyer beware, you may get white mats over your black carpet. And hey, that is ok with the salesman because unless you buy a new car, sorry, we can’t help you.

I would not recommend this dealer.

Awesome Out-of-State Experience!

By ALCraton on 5/26/2019 at 12:10 PM.

Taking advantage of the Mercedes May CPO Event, I searched several vehicles at various Mercedes dealership locations across the country. One of the vehicles I was interested in was at the Mercedes Benz of Chantilly in VA. After inquiring about the vehicle via the website, I was contacted by Mariela. Alhough I had not made a decision yet, Mariela stayed in contact with me and offered lots of information and advantages of chosing her vehicle and dealership. I finally decided to select her vehicle and she engaged with me through every step of the process through closing on the vehicle. When I flew down to take possession of the vehicle, Mariela was so kind enough to pick me up from the airport, as I was coming from Michigan. Talk about personal touch! All in all, the vehicle I select was perfect and so was Mariela! She made sure everything was taken care of and was genuinely interested in my satisfaction! My experience with Mercedes Benz of Chantilly was top-notch! Thank you, Mariela!

I would recommend this dealer.

Parts department sold me wrong fluid

By El Jefe on 4/9/2019 at 4:19 PM. Helped by Sergio.

I provided Sergio at the parts department counter the VIN number for my 2013 vehicle. He was too lazy to type in the VIN number to look it up. I needed power steering fluid and he sold me the wrong one.

A Great Dealership! You'll See!

By bvpowers on 2/12/2019 at 12:18 AM.

Cannot say enough about the good experience with MB of Chantilly. Our liaise with Freddie Hamad started with a text message and ended with a positive sales experience and driving a luxury AMG coupe! The experience was pleasant with low pressure. Freddie took the time to showcase a few vehicles of interest in the expansive MB lineup before helping me settle on a Coupe that filled the checkmarks in every bucket! Mr. Addy added to the experience with masterful support that is expected from a high-end dealership. Without question, this dealership deserves consideration if you are in the market for a quality auto from a quality salesforce!

I would recommend this dealer.

Nightmare in Chantilly

By WAz on 1/16/2019 at 6:45 PM. Helped by Matt Docampo.

I drove from Richmond to Chantilly ( Passing through 3 Mercedes Benz Dealerships) in midst of traffic, snow and treacherous condition to come to this dealership, test drive and purchase a car that I have been discussing with the salesperson for three weeks. I thought we had great report and I made it clear to him what my demands were. Atmosphere was gloomy and plastic but did not phased me. Salesperson arguing with me over and over with me for an offer that I thought was very fair based on comparison with cars from other dealerships and sellers. Most importantly a manager who care even less ( to put it mildly) about his customers. It is not until I raised xxxx and complaint about the fact that I have never been to dealership where the manager never comes and greats a customer that he got out of his chair and met me outside. He really had nothing to say and really couldn't care less. This interaction was even worse. Non-apologetic and even more defying than ever thought this will be. . No warmth or empathy. This is the worst experience I have ever had trying to buy a car. This was a personal gift to myself. When you are about to hand someone thousands dollars over a purchase that is purely emotional and of this caliber it is at least refreshing to see that someone who pretends to care. That is not much to ask. I left this dealership flabbergasted and exasperated by what had just happen. This is my first Mercedes and they managed to make this a horrible ordeal thus far.

I would not recommend this dealer.

avaricious

By KKKHZ on 1/16/2019 at 4:43 PM. Helped by mate and bret.

What an avaricious people both the sales manager and general manager. I came on Saturday to buy a car they couldn't give me a better rate so I had my own bank finance it for the better rate. I told them ill come on Monday with the check to get a car. They confirmed in the morning if m coming and i said yes. When i walked there they sold the car to someone else. Those two white managers sold it for more price and right after 2 hrs when i said ill be coming. When I talked to General Manager he was full on protecting his sales manager. Also when a salesperson came in to prove me right this GENERAL MANAGER SENT HIM AWAY AND NEVER QUESTIONED HIS SALES MANAGER. The person who bought the car also got ripped and i was sent home without any car.

I would not recommend this dealer.

Easy Peasy

By theresaanne on 1/13/2019 at 3:33 PM.

Michael LaGuardia and Norris made shopping and buying a car a very easy and pleasant experience. We got exactly what we wanted at a price that was amazing! This dealership is not your usual cut throat experience when buying a car. They are classy and treat you with respect. You can be sure you will get the best deal with the best price at Chantilly Mercedes.

I would recommend this dealer.

Lied about their service fees

By FredJ on 12/8/2018 at 8:39 PM. Helped by Freddy Diaz and Lauren Louis.

I had a crack on one of my rims and I called Mercedes-Benz of Chantilly to a get a price on my 2012 ML-350. The gentleman who answered the phone said that Mercedes-Benz don't make new rims for that model anymore but they have refurbished ones for about $600. So, I decided to go there the next day to get that done. When I went there and I saw Louis, Lauren service advisor to help me with the replacement of the rim, she gave me a price of about $1100. I told her that I already got a price for a refurbished rim for about $600. She told me that they don'e have refurbished rims and all their rims are brand new and that is the price. She made a phone call to be sure and she said yes, that is the price and we do not have refurbished rims. I decided to leave and not pay the $1000 for the new one. Then she said let me talk to someone to see if I can do something for you. She make a phone call and brought the price down to $800. I was still now happy with the price and decided not go with the $800. Then she said let me talk to someone to see what I can do for and she told me to wait in the waiting room. She came back and said that yes they do have refurbished rims and I got it for the price I was told on the phone for about $600. A week later I had a different issue with my 2012 GL-450 with “malfunction error” and this time I saw Freddy Diaz service advisor. I was told that the issue is a compressor went back and needs to be replaced. I asked him if there is any other issue with the car besides the compressor. He said no, the service tech look at your car and that is the only issue at the moment. I decided to move forward with the service and have them replace the compressor. When the service was done Freddy called me and said that they just found a leak and that is going to cost me another $1400. I DO NOT trust this dealer with their service department and I DO NOT recommend them to anyone.

I would not recommend this dealer.

By 1971-me on 8/30/2018 at 4:14 PM.

This dealership was top notch! Zabed went above and beyond to make sure we purchased the right vehicle my family was most comfortable with. He gave us suggestions and his advice, but was in no way pushy what-so-ever. After we decided on a GLC300 the process was absolutely painless. So quick and professional. I felt like family by the end of the whole process! I would recommend Zabed to anyone who is looking for a new or used vehicle. Thank you Zabed

I just purchased a 2018 GLS 450 from Michael LaGuardia at Mercedes Chantilly. He was professional, knowledgeable, not pushy and answered all of my questions. The pricing was very good and lower than other dealers I looked at. I would recommend him and the dealership to everyone. Thanks
