TEAM might having trouble selling Oldsmobiles. If TEAM is doing well, why have they abandoned the Mazda-Hundayi lot and moved to the Chevrolet-Cadillac building. GM's model lineup does not compare in quaility and price to Honda, Toyota and Nissan. Comsumer Reports still has car owners voting that they are not happy with GM vehicles. Now that trucks and SUVs have dropped rock bottom in sales and GM products such as Buick, Pontiac, GMC and Saturn are not selling. I'm afraid the TEAM will end up like Cornelius Ford and Vallejo will have two big vacant lots.

GM stopped manufacturing Oldsmobile a LOOOOOOONG time ago. TEAM is doing as well as a business can after they have messed over their loyal customer base in the area. I fear you are right Alg about TEAM's fate; could Ron Barber be keeping them afloat? Could Barber come back in a big way?

Your right Kenny Ross thought he could donate his way to heaven. OOps that didn't workout since his name is worse than Ron Barber. Team is done, they have screwed everyone they could get there hands on. Just like the rest of the jews in Vallejo he is the top Jew that has over charged every Vallejoan and I would not recommend anyone doing business there. Even if we are trying to help out our town.

My father went to Team for a brake job mind you he is in his 80's and they ripped him off for 2,300 for a job we could have done elsewhere in town for 350.00 how do we know I took the invoice from Team and took it to three different shops without showing them the invoice and all came back in 300 to 350 range. I hope they go right down the drain and every-time I am at a function I will bad mouth them till I'm lying in my death bed. Kenny Ross your a crook

Man, I wish I could say more, and tell you all more. Karma is a b**ch! What goes around comes around. Ask Mr. Ross where is long time childhood buddie ended up after Ross gave him the boot. Loyalty means nothing to a snake; just an opportunity for him to strike and sink his fangs in deeper.

The truth is the truth sorry to say! That place preys on blacks and mexicans so they can rip there heads off. They don't want Mr. Whitey to come thru the doors because he might have an education and they wont be able to steal his money. They only want the uneducated to come in so they can rip them off. There favorite is the Mexicans from Mexico they just rip them from head to toe.

By the way I quit that store because all that I have written I couldn't take advantage of my people from Mexico. So I'm selling beds if anyone wants one.

I don't want Kenny suing me for defaming his glorious reputation. I am also in litigation with them right now, so I need to be careful; anything I say could damage my suit. But trust me, as soon as I hear someone say they need a car I tell them to steer clear of TEAM and to go to Toyota or even Rose Imports to see Bill, he worked with me at TEAM and was a nice guy.
I worked with Gilbert, Abel, Sirguy, Essam, Maria, Terry and a host of other good sales people who were also let down by TEAM.

Purchased a new tranny for my cadillac 03 and six months later it toke a **** and then the service manager said certain things weren't coverage and They ended up sticking it to me 3,800 for my tranny and I had a service contract!!!!!!!!!! I have made it my choice to never ever send anyone to that pit hole. Yes, THE OWNER IS A GREEDY JEW THAT LIKES TO SCREW EVERYONE THAT WALKS THRU THE DOOR.

The Service Managers make a nice commission for charging so much your service; and it is all done with a concerned look and a sweet smile.

We've purchased several cars from Team and were treated very fair. Ken Ross is a stand up guy. Some of you here sound like disgruntled employees who have a beef with him. You should grow some and talk directly to Ken about it.

I remember when Ken and the other car dealers cut that sweet heart deal with the City of Vallejo by having the city waive all the permit,development, and impact fees for their Auto Row project. This saving them million$ and costing Vallejo million$ in lost revenue.

City officials told the public,"don't worry these car dealers will be selling so many more cars out of the new Auto Row that Vallejo will make all that lost revenue back in just 3-4 years".

Another huge business blunder caused by corrupt and incompetent city officals.
