Not surprising. Several new car dealerships and some smaller used car lots have gone down the tubes in the past two years. I heard yesterday Ocean Fresh Seafood in Attleboro closed. assachusetts is going down the crapper, and coupe Devall Patric is using a plunger to help the process along!

Will the last one to leave turn out the lights?

If assachusetts is so bad...why are you still here. Its Massachusetts and its Deval Patrick. Looks as though someone shut off your light.

And what the hell does seafood have to do with car dealerships? I noticed you can spell "crapper" and "plunger"

Good. Weber Dodge tried to rip me off with hidden fees on a new Dodge Caravan purchase.

I ended up getting the identical vehicle from another dealer for $300 less.

Based on my own experience, I wonder if it was less that brand's "shrinking popularity" and more of the dealership's trying to fleece customers.

I hope other dealerships take notice.

"And what the hell does seafood have to do with car dealerships? "

Economics genius. The state is going broke and the people are moving out.

Can you spell "Liberal welfare state"?

I had superb service from Weber Dodge. Even though my Caravan (bought at the short-lived successor owner of Paul Young Dodge) had several irritating growing pains, the folks at Weber straightened everything out - brakes, transmission etc. with a smile - and in spite of the fact that I hadn't bought it there. Great, knowledgeable service staff. I was ready to consider another [new] Dodge, primarily because of their quality service. Sorry that they're gone. Really bummed!

The inside scoop was that Mopar promised them Jeep and another line of cars if they made the new building, then reneged, and they couldn't make a go of it selling just Dodge, so they closed the doors.

My son got his first non sh-box car at Weber.
A gut named Jim sold it. He was cool with us and Weber serviced the car for free. I had no problems with them and wanted to go look at one today for my other son. Sorry to see them go.

Hey are you that dude that came wanting to change everything? Is your name Kerry or something like that. We all heard through other source you were constantly hopped up on something (roids, coke, pills). Dude you really sucked. You are not Gods gift to earth. No wonder why you haven't stayed at one place for a long time. Dude, NO ONE LIKES YOU. You SUCK.

I worked at Weber Dodge once a long time ago. I have to say, I never met a more professional, capable, and accomodating crew at a car dealership before. Bottom line-they had a great run.

I was also a manager there for a short time..they created the positon for me and gave me a shot...Walter Webber was a fair and accomodating boss. He ways loyal to his employees and customers. His daughter was committed and passionate. The sales people there for the most part were dedicated and treated everyone with respect. It was a family run business that is going the way of the dianosaurs. Everyone will eventually have to go to Quirk or some other nightmare dealer like that. And yes that douche bag that saved 300 going to another dealer is the reason they could not survive.. people just dont get that you have to support local business or it goes away. period. Another freaking CVS is going in there. That guy from Cohasset can pay full retail for his Tampons now.
