University Dealerships,... Good? or Bad?,...
Seeing a facebook post with not so great reviews of local University dealerships, it got me to thinking. Actually I was already thinking about them since they seem to have monopolized the local new car market. Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Florence along with the Nissan dealership and over in Tuscumbia, Toyota and Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and in Sheffield, the Kia Dealership. So that pretty much has the local new car business sewn up except for Ford. If I remember correctly University did close a Hyundai dealership on Florence Blvd.
On this particular facebook post there were no "pro" comments made at all. Everything was negative, from the way the salesperson tried to pressure the sale to stopping short of saying the salesperson harassed them.
So does University management apply pressure to these sales people to make a quota or is it just the salespersons way of doing things. Surely each negative comment made about the salesperson wasn't referring to the same one. My guess is it is management. But that is just a guess. I don't know. But the good people of the Shoals are going to purchase new vehicles and they seem to be going out of town to do so. Unless it is a Ford product.
People that know what I blog about know I promote buying local as much as you can. Tax dollars benefit our communities.
So if you have a comment to make, good or bad or even indifferent, send me a comment and I'll post it in another blog post along with this one. I'm curious. As stated earlier, I had already wondered about them.
