Hang on kids, here we go....
So Johnny has been in the market for a new whip lately. After much research he chose a Pontiac Vibe GT. He then began sending out email inquiries to several local Pontiac dealership internet sales managers telling them his option requirements and talking price. He began the process of whittling down who he'd buy from on price and options available and who had the car he wanted. Alan Johnson (and remember that name kids) at Randy Wise in Milan had the best price on the GT and Mr. Johnson MADE AN APPOINTMENT to sell the car to Johnny yesterday afternoon. Johnny drove down to Milan fully expecting to be driving home in something different. As Lee Corso says on ESPN, "Not so fast my friend"
Johnny walks into the showroom, has Alan Johnson paged, he comes out, and Johnny excitedly says "Let's take a look at the car!"
Alan Johnson: "Oh, it's not here"
Alan Johnson: "It's not here, I''ll have to call someone to get one here"
Johnny: "You're kidding"
Alan Johnson "No, I'll have to locate one for you"
What a weasel. What an unprofessional weasel car salesman. When Johnny makes an appointment to buy a car he expects said car will be on the lot. Alan Johnson had two days lead to get it there. Car deals can fall apart for a lot of reason, financing mainly. But to have the Randy Wise sales manager, ALAN JOHNSON make an appointment to sell a car and not have it there is completely unacceptable. Alan kept going on how "There's no bad intent here". Maybe not Alan, perhaps it's just incompetence. He said he could TRY to locate one, in fact he knew of one that was out on an overnight test drive (just not from HIS dealership derrrrr). I told him I didn't want THAT one, it'd be USED to me. He also could not give a date that car would be available. Alan hemmed and hawed about trying to locate a car, made a few fruitless phone calls, but by then the trust was broken and Johnny drove home mad as hell.
So if you are in the market for a new car, feel free to take this tale as a warning if you find yourself thinking about Randy Wise in Milan and a gentleman named Alan Johnson.
Oh and by the way Alan, the base Vibe model does NOT come with a 1.4 L engine, it's 1.8 L, you should know that going forward. You made mention twice of the 1.4 L. engine compared to the 2.4 L on the AWD and GT Vibe, just sayin'...
