Default Szott Jeep Dealership

Anybody on here have a salesman there they recommend? I'm tired of my '08 JK and looking to upgrade to the 4-door version.

Szott horror stories are also welcome.

I've got a few Unlimited Wranglers on my lot. What exactly are you looking for? Also, where are you from? I may be able to drive by and show it to you. I work in Imlay City and live in White Lake.

Years ago when my 97tj was under warranty I took it to szott, they sucked.

Scott Rose was the service wrighter I was dealing with at the time.

Why not give AJHall a shot, other than the fact he works way the fukc out in no man's land.

This.

As much shit as he takes on here, I'd give him a shot anyway. Besides, what's the worst he could do to me, since in the end I'll probably be using the Friends and Family program so he cannot really screw me over too badly.

Proximity to home or office is going to be the main thing I go with so I'll likely end up at Szott or Golling (I don't like anybody I've dealt with at the Suburban system so they are out of the running). Though now I also have a recommendation at Dick Scott and AJ Hall up at Milnes.

Sometimes laziness wins out.

I like trailrail302 at suburban, but he is at a suburban ford dealership. I can not fucking stand being on suburbans mailing list, email list and phone call list, and they can't seem to get it through their head that I am not in the market for a new vehicle, they can't figure out how to stop bothering me, and they will never get any of my business again because of this.

If anybody in charge of Chrysler franchising is secretly reading these boards - Village Automotive in Royal Oak was THE ABSOLUTE BEST dealership of any brand I have ever dealt with. If they could be a new car dealer again, I would go back to them in a heartbeat.

I forgot about their Ford dealership in Waterford. When My wife was interested in an Explorer a couple of years Trailrail302 got me a good price very quickly. Unfortunately she still went with the hideous Chevy Traverse.

I hate to rain on your parade but these ass clowns tried to soak me for several thousand dollars worth of bullshit repairs on my diesel several years ago. The manager was a dick. I wouldn't go there if you paid me.

Your not raining on my parade....they treat me like VIP there....sorry to hear about your luck. Maybe you should learn to work on your own diesels and not worry about dealers making a bad call on a repair. I have spent 50+ hours working on 6.0l powerstrokes so I have learned a thing or two. I would never take one of my diesels to a dealer unless its under warranty. Im not sure which manager you deal with but I know the owner Judd scott Personally and he might be the most fair honest car salesmen I have ever worked with. I have bought 3 jeeps and 2 rams (in past 3 years), neighbor just bought a ram last week, brother bought a new JK about a month ago, and NO ONE...repeat NO ONE was even close to coming to there prices, not to mention there no BS attitude is awesome. A few summers ago when I just got my wifes Rubicon I towed a boat home from Indian river and I noticed the front diff was leaking fluid terribly. I called Dick scott motormall about this, and by the time I got to the dealer I drove right into the bay and they had the manager and the service waiting for me....Top notch service for me.

when I was looking last summer, AJ got me quotes pretty quick, if I didn't end up buying a 1yo used Jeep, I would have considered buying through him.

I bought my Jeep and Caravan from Golling. A salesman named Adam Holcomb. Super nice guy and no b.s.
Szott blows. I tried to purchase my Jeep from Szott but after confirming they had what I wanted I drove there and 20 minutes later it was magically gone and the salesman was clueless. I left and drove to Golling. My buddy always bitches about Szott service and now takes his to Shuman to be serviced.
