"Awful Awful experience at Strickland's Brantford "

- Vigi

We have been searching for a vehicle for months. Eventually it came down for one car I really like it. It is 2017 Chevrolet Cruze hatchback. It has everything I am looking for except one thing missing. We asked the salesman Chris how we get the navigation? He said 1: Pay monthly fee for on star. 2. We can use the cell with our own data. 3. We can pay $ 800 to have a build in navigation. He knocked off $ 3500 for us Plus I am driving Alero, we will get $ 1000 off from GM. That was total $ 4500. He even told us it was their 20 years anniversary. They were eager to make a deal. Just to make an offer. On Nov. 19, we were so excited to put an order. Suddenly he told us if we want the navigation built in , we have to go for the Premier model. That will cost us another several thousand dollars on top. So I told Chris caz he gave us false information, he had to work on the price for us. We went in again on Tuesday. He knocked off $ 1000 extra, that would come to $ 4500 plus $ 1000 from GM. Total was $ 5500. From GM website is $ 500 cheaper than their price. Chris couldn't figure out. He went asked then told us it was caz GM gave everybody $ 500 credit . But caz we have Alero, we get $ 1000 instead. Online $ 500 was before tax , our $ 1000 was after tax. Chris didn't tell us till today. We tried to bargain more. The manager Shaun Vasallo came in and told us , he was not going to lower another penny. Caz my husband had to leave for work. We asked could we come back on Sat.? Shaun said NO and the deal was only for today for right now. Me and my husband talked through. We decided let me stay but they had to give me a shuttle home. I sat down with Chris had the final number. I asked Chris couple times . Is that including everything ( tax or whatever) we had to pay? He said yes. I wrote it down. We chose 0 % for 60 months. After Chris took me to see the financing guy Brad Tinball. Caz I wanted to put everything under my husband's name. Brad agreed my husband came in the next day to sign the paper. At the end Brad showed me the total amount. I said it was not right. How come it was more again. He checked then told me caz we were doing the financing. There was a fee $ 80.28 we had to pay. I was not happy. I asked to bring Chris in but he brought in the manager Shaun Vasallo. I said your salesman kept giving us the false information. Could you waive that fee? He said NO , you have to pay you have to pay. His attitude was so bad since the beginning. And always showing you " take it or leave it ". I was really mad this time. I told him that's fine. This will be my first time and last time to deal with your place. Don't know how did he get his job in that position? He doesn't have the abilities to handle with the customers at all. Same night me and my husband decided to change the color from Orange to white. Next day we called in Chris wasn't in that day. I told Brad he had to wait one more day for my husband to come in. Caz Chris had to change the invoice. We paid $ 495 for the orange color. My husband went in on Thursday and signed the paper. When my husband texted me and would tell me tonight. I knew something was wrong. At night he told me Brad asked him to sign a condition, means before we picked up our car, if the interest rate went up, we had to take whatever it was. My husband questioned Brad on the spot, did my wife know about it? Brad said yes, Shaun told me. My husband said " really "?. He had to come home and ask me. Brad changed his attitude and said " that's ok. You go home and talk to your wife. If you are not happy about the deal. We can cancel it ". I don't care how long I have to wait for the car. Caz it's customize. Chris told us on Sat. It would take 4-6 weeks. On Thursday he changed to 12 weeks. By the way we made a deal, before we could have our car, if my car broke down, they agreed to lend me a car for free. But when I asked to write down on the paper they couldn't do it. Chris told us they go by their word. REALLY? I called Chris on Friday morning. I told him Your manager Shaun Vasallo didn't mention a word about the interest rate to me at all and he lied about it. The deal is the deal. No dealership will force their customer to sign that ridiculous condition. We cancelled the deal. At Strickland's Brantford, your word means NOTHING

"Comfortable, fun, not as scary as I thought"

- KstineW

Being a first time (new) car buyer... I walked in with the fear that I'm sure a lot of people have. You hear horror stories that people have to deal with incredibly pushy sales people who only really care about making their commision; and I walked in ready to put on my "tough face". What I wasn't expecting was how friendly and human the gentleman who first shook my hand could be. He took the time and made sure that I didn't feel pressured to make a decision. He asked all of the questions about what I wanted, and what I was looking for. He made sure that I knew all of my options even before we did a test drive. While in the car he went through all of the different features and was very knowledgeable. Even when it came down to choosing the car... he stopped and made sure again that this is exactly the car I wanted. When I went in to finalize everything and pick up the car; he sat in the car and help me set everything up. Thank you Brad T. ... genuinely you made this experience so much more fun and not scary at all for me. I truly appreciate how patient you were.

"Hassle Free Purchase "

- Dino

Contacted Chris about a pickup truck on the lot and a hassle free deal went down within minutes, took my trade in for a drive and brought it back without telling me all the problems with the vehicle and why it wasn't worth the price I wanted for it, very impressed. Thank you Chris and John.

"Great!"

- Jno

I was really impressed with this dealership. Called to see about test driving a car. It wasn't on their brantford location, so they had it delivered there just so I could test drive it. Chris, the salesman, was very nice and not pushy about the visit. Told me to take the car for as long as I wanted. I ended up loving the car and purchased it. The whole transaction was quick and painless. I'm loving the car now, and would definitely recommend this the dealership to anyone

"Beyond happy with Stricklands"

- Jan

I went to numerous dealerships after my vehicle was stolen to find something special that caught my eye. . I drove to Brantford one morning to see what they had on the lot and instantly fell in love with a 2016 Canyon. Richard Akiki was the first person out the door to help me and I was most impressed with the politeness and eagerness to help me. There was never any pressure at all and thats something that really made me confortable. I was dealing with insurance and it took a while to finally come through but the whole time...Stricklands was patient...helpful and always kept the communication open. When I picked up my Canyon...Richard was so personable...knowledgeable and just a very down to earth and pleasant person to deal with. I highly recommend Steicklands in Brantford if your in the market for a new vehicle and when you do go down...ask for Richard Akiki. You will be very pleased with your experience.

"Amazingly Satisfied Beyond Words!"

- Flea

We received mail regarding a trade on our Cruz. We were hesitant as we were very happy with our current Cruz and didn't feel it was necessary. After meeting with Tyler Ferguson he more than met our expectations and most importantly came in right on point for the price. He heard what we were saying and truly cared. We were not sure if Tyler could meet our needs, but in the end he exceeded them!!!Thank you Tyler for your incredible customer service. You are definitely an asset to Stricklands.
