Ken Garff Reviews (277)
***, this is Mathew G [redacted] , Brand Advocacy Manager at Ken Garff West Valley DodgeI spoke with you on the phone yesterdayOnce again, I apologize for your concerns with our staff's sporadic communication with you during the repair processI have initiated a training program for the individual in order to help him serve our customers to a better capacityRegarding the disputed amount of $This issue took me quite some time to research, speaking to the technician, speaking to the Service Writer, our service manager, etcThe conclusion that we came to, is that even though the parts that you disputed paying for were parts that are not covered under manufacturer warranty, after diving deeply into the ticket, I do have the option to goodwill the repair on your spark plugs and coil as "collateral damage" from the failing of the valve cover gasketUnder circumstances, Ken Garff West Valley is not able to warranty these items, as we do not decide what we can or cannot warranty, but simply follow Chrysler's guidelines on what we are allowed to warrantyHowever, in this circumstance there is enough evidence to file this claim under "Collateral Damage" as previously mentionedTherefore I will not be refunding you $192.75, but will be refunding you the full amount of the repair: $As I mentioned yesterday I will get our accounting department to issue a check in that amount to be sent to youPlease let me know if you have further questions or concerns that were not rectified either in our phone conversation yesterday or this responseSincerely, Mathew G [redacted] Brand Advocacy ManagerKen Garff West Valley801-297-

I will try to find another Lexus with near miles and color for you if would like? Todd S***
Complaint: [redacted] I am rejecting this response because:I also have documentation of a payoff date of Sept, 2017, the credit denial letters, and signed contracts with different dates and was aware of being lateHowever, I could have made a payment on the trade in, or TWO payments if I would have been notified immediately or the following Monday of the possibility of lack of financing! I should have made the payments to protect myself but with a signed contract dated 8/26/and verbally asking to be certain it would be taken care of, I thought a dealership that "Can Hear Me" would have done as they saidAlso, if this is no fault of theirs, why did they reduce the price of the vehicle almost $4k? and why did they fail to communicate until AFTER the financial institution for the trade called to notify me of "late payment" on or about the 15th of SeptemberThey looked at year to date, divided by the months worked on my wife's income to basically tell us we falsified our income? and all I had was a offer letter from a new employer stating wageMy wife normally works 40+ hrs a week but had a medical issue and took some unpaid time off approved by her employerIf the financing was not complete as the initial contract signed indicated, they should not have handed us the keys! I will be filling out the form provided by MrC [redacted] to see what can be doneHowever, I will not accept any resolution until I am satisfied with the outcomeI am the consumer and have rights! I also do not appreciate badgering phone calls from the dealership to try and push me into a common grounds deal! Sincerely, [redacted]
[redacted] , I apologize for your frustration.? ? Discounts are always based off of MSRP.? ? All our sales consultants have pricing sheets to show all our customers what the different discounts that are? available.? I would say about 99.9% of our customer like that our sales consultants have pricing sheets so they don't have to go back and forth with a manager ,and the customer really appreciate? how simple it is.? ? We use a transparent sales process where you work? with a? sales consultant that takes you through the whole process, not bouncing you around from office to office and manager to manager.? ? ? Even with a transparent process we know there's still no way to make 100% of the customers happy.? ? If you would like Leather put in your Atlas we can arrange that, or I can refer you to a company that does aftermarket leather.Let me know if you would like to proceed with the leather.Sincerely,Carlos I [redacted]

This email was sent to the consumer on 6/23/at 10:11amWe are awaiting a response to help rectify the situation.? [redacted] , My name is Brandon A***, I am the Service Manager at Ken Garff GMC/Buick Yesterday I received a copy of the complaint you filed with the Revdex.com regarding the Nissan Sentra you purchased from us in March of this yearI called and left a message with my contact information yesterday at the phone number provided on the complaint and as of this morning 6/23/I have yet to hear back from youI know we all get busy so I figured I would attempt to contact you this way as wellObviously we take our customers concerns very seriously whether or not the Revdex.com is involved and this is no exceptionI have reviewed the history of this vehicle and read your statementThis is what I am able to see and please feel free to correct me if any of my information is not accurate in your opinion or you need further information about any of itYou purchased the vehicle on 3/21/based on the signed documents in the fileOn 3/27/I show you returned here stating the check engine light was on, washer tank was not holding fluid and there was a knocking in the front end when going over bumpsWe found a code P2Ain the computer causing the check engine light and was able to diagnose the problem as a cracked intake air plenum and pre-catalytic converter Osensor not reading accuratelyWe replaced the intake air plenum ducting and Osensor, cleared the codes and sent it to our Nissan dealership down the road to complete an air/fuel relearn only able to be done at a Nissan dealerFor the washer tank not holding fluid we found a portion of hose that attaches to the washer bottle to be corroded, we cut the corroded section out and replaced it with new hose to correct the issue and did not find any leaks after that repairFor the knocking noise we found the front struts making noise and possibly mounts worn, this we believed was causing what was being heard when going over bumps or dips in the roadWhile the vehicle was at our Nissan dealership we requested they replace the struts for you, this was done at that time and the vehicle was returned to us and in turn to you with the above repairs completedThe total our dealership paid for these repairs to our facility and our Ken Garff Nissan store was $none of which we requested you pay when you picked up the vehicle on 4/1/This was done because we do value you as a customer and do everything in our power to assist when we can and stand behind the vehicles we sellSince you picked up the vehicle on 4/1/we have no record of you contacting us to inform our sales or service departments there was still an issueSince the work was done it holds warranty if the same part fails after we install it, if it is a different problem then by all means we would be willing to inspect and determine what the failure is and come up with a solution that works for everyoneWe have obviously proven we have the resources and willingness to assist you in owning and driving a quality vehicle after completing the above reapirsMy only concern is based on the your Revdex.com complaint you say you have not spoken with the company (us) since 3/14/17, I do believe that is inaccurate since we had your vehicle here as of April 1st and the purchase wasn’t completed until 3/21/Without a doubt we will look into this knocking issue but can you see how without contacting us for over two months we would not have any idea the problem still existedAt this point I just need to hear back from you so we can make an appointment that is convenient for you to diagnose the noise and determine the appropriate fixThe last thing we want is to invest over $in your vehicle for you to still be unhappy with itIf you would please reach out to me at your earliest convenience we will set up a time to get the vehicle here and hopefully fixed for goodThank you and I look forward to hearing from you soon, please contact me directly at any of the methods listed below?

We have removed Mr [redacted] from internal mailings and also contacted the outside vendors Honda Downtown uses to have him removed.Alex W [redacted] reached out and spoke to Mr [redacted] earlier today? She explained how the direct mail process worked and apologized that he was unable to successfully remove himself thus far? His biggest frustration was? that? he couldn't get a hold of anyone? Alex gave him her contact information so that he can directly reach out to her with any other concerns of if he gets a another rogue mail piece? We are happy we could help him and apologize he has been frustrated.Mr [redacted] also said to let the Revdex.com know to call him so he can tell them it’s resolvedHe said he has had good experiences with Garff otherwise and would be happy to let the Revdex.com know there is no further issue with us.Thanks!
The customer, [redacted] made contact with myself, Mathew G [redacted] , on Monday 6/27/at 4:p.m., regarding an issue that happened during an oil change service being done in our service department on 6/25/I was notified at that time that the technician, Joshua, reported to the customer that the dipstick in the Fiat was broken during the oil changeI confirmed with Josh who stated the dipstick seemed to be stuck in the dipstick holder tighter than normally allowed, and thus the end of the dipstick came off when being removedWhile we felt there was no negligence on the technician's part for the dipstick breaking, but more of a design flaw of the Fiat, we offered to replace the dipstick at no charge for the customer, as well as offered the customer a courtesy vehicle for transportation and a $gas voucher for their inconvenience in having to come back down to our storeThe dipstick was ordered at this time.The dipstick came in on 7/6/2016, at which time I left a voicemail for the customer, at 2:p.mnotifying her that the part had arrivedI received a call from the customer on 7/8/2016, wanting a better resolution [redacted] wanted a refund on the services used in the past for the inconvenience of having to come down to our store againAt which point I declined her requested resolution based upon the fact that we were obligated to repair the mechanical failure of the dipstick, a relatively simple to fix part, but that a mechanical failure of a vehicle does not obligate us to refund work done in the past, as vehicle will have mechanical issues and I felt that our offer for recompense was more than fair and much greater than the industry standardAt which point the customer requested to speak to a manager higher than myselfI printed her information for our service manager to give her a callOur records indicate through our phone system that contact was attempted to be made the next Monday.I then received a phone call from the customer on 7/14/at 9:a.mupset that she had not received a call from a managerDuring the course of the conversation I expressed that [redacted] was being rude and asked if I could finish speakingAt which point when the behavior continued I disconnected the phone call and provided her information to our Assistant Service Manager Chad C***Chad spoke to [redacted] later in the afternoon, denying [redacted] 's request for recompense, stating that the resolution was not reasonable in accordance with the mechanical failure of a part that we had already offered to fix, and as we offered to provide financial and travel assistance, which we were not obligated to doChad Scheduled the customer for an appointment on 7/16/for the replacement of the dipstick, for which the customer did not show for

Contact Name and Title: [redacted] Contact Phone: [redacted] Contact Email: ***@kengarff.com Ken Garff West Valley sold Mr [redacted] a Black Ram on December 2, It was the night of our annual Christmas Party and our store closed early to accommodate 200+ employees being able to attend and we were a bit rushedAfter the sale there were concerns with VTR (a finance product) on his contractIt was agreed to credit him the full amount towards fender flares (which is something I understand he wanted) to make him wholeHe did that and received full credit, making him whole on that concern Mr [redacted] visited our store very upset because he was not offered the Military rebate and was told that he did not qualifyIt is factory to customer cash that we truly want our customer to receive, but we apparently hadn't looked deeply enough and failed to catch itI met with Mr [redacted] personally and agreed that if he would bring in the necessary documentation that we would certainly honor the rebate as it comes from ChryslerIn attempt to correct this immediately and not have him wait, we wrote and gave him a dealership check that day for the proper amount Also, he found that there were scratches on his truck and our team agreed to have him bring his truck back and have them repairedThere were attempts to repair the scratchesThe 1st was with [redacted] , a touch up service that is contracted to do work on our lotMr [redacted] indicated he wasn't satisfied with the outcome, so we sent him to the body shop at [redacted] (right across the street from us), where they buffed and repaired the scratchesIt would be important to interject here, that the manager of the [redacted] (***) visited me to explain that he gave Mr [redacted] an estimate to repaint the entire truck but told him he would not paint the truck and that repainting it would make it look worse [redacted] stated that he believes the scratches have been taken care of [redacted] also shared with me that he spoke to someone that does estimates for the [redacted] (also engaged by Mr [redacted] ) that called him and they both agreed on that Mr [redacted] was still not satisfied with the level of repairAs general manager, I offered to try my best to find another truck like his to do an exchange of trucks even though he had already driven his new truck for 1,milesI offered a 100% refund on his purchase and return his traded vehicle back to himAs a part of that, we agreed to eat the $cost of reconditioning we had performed on his trade in and to simply rescind the deal and make each party whole as they were before the deal startedOr, in an effort to keep him in a new truck, I reviewed different invoices with him of black (his color) trucks available within a 1,mile search and unfortunately, none of the trucks were an exact match to the one he purchasedFor example, some had different seating up front (Captain Chairs vsbench seat) and one did not have the factory installed "5th wheel prep group" and he wouldn't accept us installing a 5th wheel set up here at the storeWe simply couldn't find a truck to satisfy himAfter reviewing the options I agreed to contact our factory rep and make sure that I was not missing anything in finding a solution to swap trucks and attempt to make him happyWe could not find a like truck even with our factory representative's helpMr [redacted] flatly refused to "unwind" the purchase and simply would not believe that we could not locate an exact match and felt we were jerking him around, which was absolutely not our intent! We truly wanted to satisfy our customer He contacted our corporate office and we all put our heads together to seek a solutionIn a few days (Friday, December 19th to be precise) we reached an amiable agreement that compensated him for what he felt we had done wrong and that put an end to the matterMr [redacted] informed us he was satisfied with the solution
