Hi there. My name is Derek Schiavone and I am the Senior Finance Manager at St. Catharines Nissan in St. Catharines Ontario. I have had the privilege to be a member of the St. Catharines Nissan family for the past 6 years and I enjoy every day I come to work. My responsibility at the dealership is to ensure every customer gets treated fairly and is provided with finance solutions no matter their past credit situations. Previously to working at St. Catharines Nissan I was lucky enough to be a member of the Canadian Football League for 5 years (2008-2012). This has allowed me to develop valuable teamwork skills.

- beau-100

I bought my first gently used Nissan last year from Christopher. Even in the heightened times of Covid-19, it was great! Yesterday, I came back to him again for a brand new Nissan Versa. Christopher went well above and beyond my expectations with every aspect of my purchase experience at St Catharines Nissan. Kudos for him! Much thanks, Diane

"Christopher showed us a nice 2016 Pathfinder Premium SL..."

- Fournier

Christopher showed us a nice 2016 Pathfinder Premium SL and we agreed on it. When we went to sign papers he informed us that the safety had failed due to seat belt mechanism and said they couldn't find it anywhere. Derek come into the meeting and told us he would give us a 300. gift card for the inconvenience. He then showed us a 2018 Pathfinder Platinum that we had to pay 500.00 to have brought in. We never got a chance to look at the vehicle as we contracted COVID-19. We had to isolate for 14 days. This vehicle went back to Burlington before we could even look at it. He then showed us a 2017 which he told us it was a 2018 Pathfinder Premium. He even did a short video and the dealer plate said 2018. I tried to insure it but it obviously kept coming up as a 2017. We agreed to this vehicle without seeing it due to COVID-19. He told us it was in excellent condition and we took his word. We finalized paper work online and I picked up vehicle. A few days later I did my inspection of the vehicle to find it had scratches on almost the whole vehicle. I took the vehicle back in and they looked it over and said ..you didn't buy a new vehicle!! He then agreed to have scratches buffed out which they did a terrible job. There was also rust spots in 4 area's that they wouldn't repair. So we paid over 30K on a vehicle that was all scratched up and with rust spots.Both myself and my brother in law were called liars when we asked about the 300. gift card. Derek denied he said that. I can go on... I have a texts about what I just said to back me up. Will I purchase another vehicle from St.Catharines Nissan....very doubt it.
