Local stealership lost a customer

Postby datechboss101 » Mon Sep 12, 2022 12:29 pm

Been taking the Rogues since 2016 to Reed Nissan Orlando. For the past 6 years, they been accepting coupons from other dealers, especially the ones where we bought the Rogues from. Saturday, was when they lost me as a customer permanently. The SM is a complete douchebag (sorry for the "immature word" but that's more appropriate word for the internet). I came in for an Oil Change and Tire rotation. Normal price is $100 OTD (which is too high for a Rogue for 4.5 qrts; I pay roughly this for my MDX which takes 5.7 qrts). I come in with the usual coupon that I always bring. This guy says "accept the coupon" but don't do the Tire rotation (I was willing to pay for the Tire rotation). And then this guy flagged me in the system, for bringing valid and legitimate coupons from Nissan.

Now looking at taking this Rogue to a Honda dealer for future service, but then I messaged my contact over at Acura of Pembroke Pines for the Acura ZDX EV (based off of the Cadillac Lyriq), with the Rogue as a trade-in.

Curious why do you insist on using "stealerships". They are normally the most expensive option for repairs and your car is out of warranty. A good independent shop will usually be cheaper and more willing work with you and without the coupon gimmicks that dealers frequently resort to using.

Perfect excuse is I am lazy. But real reason is parents. Then again, the Rogue is my parents car.

I have to start looking at indie shops, since the stealership ain't worth it. Honda quoted me $98 OTD for the Rogue for OC & TR; I did pay $33 OTD for the TR today, since it was last minute and the SA there had to squeeze me in with the appointments (talk about Nissan doing [email protected]$5 jobs; sorry about the language).

I'm sure the dealership is really upset to see you go.....NOT.
