I always shop at Bill Gatton Honda...very professional. I would NEVER shop at Ramey because I absolutely can not stand those silly, self indulgent, aren't my kids the cutest, commercials.

The only way you should buy a vehicle is with cash, if you can't pay cash you can't afford it. If you pay cash how are they screwing you? The dealers never screw you, you allow it. If you get screwed by a car dealer it is because you are a idiot. Start living within your means, and quit spending like congress!!!

I have bought 5 cars from Ramey Ford and I have had only 1 small problem with the dealership that they immediately fixed for me. Their service department is top notch! They have gone beyond what was necessary during a couple of my scheduled maintenance. I went to Friendship Ford and was only there for 15 minutes when the manager insulted my intelligence so I LEFT and went to Ramey. Don't know what you expect out of a dealership, but I will continue to go to Ramey! Commercial is cute too!

I took my Ford to Ramey for diagnosis and repair. They could not diagnosis the vehicle until the next day because they were booked solid. Shortage of qualified staff, as they reported.
The service writer logged the vehicle in and I told him I thought the problem was a certain defective part. I called 30 hours later, after not hearing from them when promised, to get an update and was told it was a different part that was wrong and it would be covered by warranty. They ordered the part which was over $2,500, and installed it. Several days came and went. Guess what? When they road tested it the vehicle still had the same problem. Calls to Detroit by the service department, additional testing, 20 miles of road tests, lots of head scratching. Day after day passed. They took the newly installed part back out and disassembled it, ordered parts to fix the new assembly. Reinstalled it. Scratched their heads some more. Same issue was still present after days and days of work.
Eventually they came to the conclusion that the vehicle's problem was the part I initially suggested. They finally humbled themselves and ordered the correct part and installed which then fixed the vehicle. Guess what? They did not remove the wrongly diagnosed & installed parts. They pulled a fast one over on Detroit. I suspect that Detroit will inspect the part that was replaced at some point and realize the dealer was not capable, or worst, is dishonest.
I am thankful they finally repaired by vehicle and returned it. The issue I have is that this took 24 days. How can anyone this day and time be without their vehicle for 24 days? Furthermore, under what circumstance would any Ford (or any other brand) dealership need 24 days to fix any mechanical problem on any vehicle? Look that one up in any tech manual and operating procedure.
Lack of adequate troubleshooting skills, lack of integrity, lack of good communication skills with the service customer. My hope is that they learn and reevaluate, provide further training, provide better communications with the customer. Even after this experience I would still return, since there is no better option that I am aware of in the Tri.
Any yes, I agree with with one of the above commeter about the attitude of service writer Donna. I was not dealing with her, but observed her dealing with another customer the day I picked by vehicle up and if I had been that customer I would have slapped her teeth out of her head. She is hurting Ramey's reputation.

Yeah mostly because of that smartass bitch named Donna that works back there.. She is the biggest smart ass I have ever encountered dealing with the public. Everyone I have ever talked to that has been there says she is a bitch.. Why do they keep her around as much business as she is costing them?
OMG I thought it was just me! I dread taking my car for servicing because of her abrasive attitude. What is her problem?

My wife took our Mazda to Bill Gatton Acura Mazda for a oil change and waited for 2.5 hours. Finally they came out and showed my wife a filter with several dead insects on it. They said it was the cabin filter and it needed to be changed. She asked how much they said it would be $110, to my wife's surprise she replied, "why is it so much for a filter?" They said it takes almost an hour to get the filter out because it is in a difficult place to get to. My wife said I came here for an oil change and you guys wasted an hour of my time to take my cabin filter off. The guy said I will just put it back in. My wife said can I see the filter. She walked over to the trash can and knocked the insects off the filter and gave it back to them to put back in. These people all of them will try to take advantage of a female. It is a shame.

I haven't been there and won't go there simply due to the commercials. They have the most annoying commercials on the planet.

You ppl really need to buy from Everett Smith @ Ramey. He has always treated me great. He takes care of his ppl after the sales. Will keep you updated about your service. Once you deal with him. Youll never go anywhere else.

I don't care who the sales person is because one of their sales people will never see me. Having to stomach those awful commercials is enough to keep me away forever. I don't know who is the brains behind the advertising, but whoever it is doesn't know a whole lot about advertising. Adults purchase cars and trucks, don't advertise to them like they are pre-schoolers.

I have never been anywhere that does not keep you at the very minimum one hour. There must have been issues that you were not aware of.

Sales
People are fake and call a few times after the sale then you never hear from them. The finance guy at Carl Gregory is a jerk I will never and I say never grace their lot.
