Back on April 30, 2016 my daughter and I arrived at David Stanley Dodge Midwest City, OK to look at a 2011 Chevy Cruze for $6900.00 I found on their website. We live in the Dallas area and drove 300+ miles. Before we went up there I had talked to Kevin the salesman after playing tag for days. He said the car was in the body shop for a small repair on the rear bumper. I am a trusting person always giving everyone the benefit of the doubt. He said the car would be at the lot by time we arrived or they have many others similar to consider. When we got there, no car and he was not available so Raquel helps us and is very nice. Someone else told me that specific car was being repaired from a "wreck" but that they had numerous cars on the lot comparable. So, my daughter finds one the same year with more options and falls in love with it. It is $10k (the bait and switch) so I give in and get it for her.
Now, here we are almost 1 year later and the car unfortunately has been wrecked and a total loss. My insurance is only paying about half of what is owed on the car, due to overpaying for it originally. After purchasing the car I moved and am unable to find my paperwork to use the GAP insurance and have credited the extended warranty purchased. I have called, left voicemails and emailed the dealership to no avail. All I want from them is a phone number or copies of my paperwork to get this all resolved. After reading many reviews on this dealership I know I never should have reached out to them. How do people like this stay in business??? I just don't get it... TAKE HEED PEOPLE NEVER BUY FROM DAVID STANLEY DODGE MIDWEST CITY, OK!!!

Not happy with David Stanley. MidwestCity Ok store. Had a Jeep Wrangler, at a great price, that I was willing to buy. Internet said it was in transit, Internet sales lady I called said "no, it's here on the lot." Went there and no jeep that I had a quote for. Sales manager said there are plenty of other jeeps I could look at or I could put money down to hold the jeep that was in transit and that it is coming in about 10 to 20 days. 32 miles, 64 miles to get to the dealership and back home... The sales manager said it was a slight inconvenience. Bait and switch with a twist. No not happy at all considering I had a Chase loan approved and was ready to buy!!!

The used sales division's manager is very unprofessional. Treats customers like children - he is a total **. The internet advertisement for the used truck I was interested in gave (A.) false mileage - 67,000 instead of the 107,000 actual miles - that is a difference of 40,000 miles!, and (B.) false document fees - $359.00 instead of the actual $509.00. The used sales manager was bluntly unapologetic. He acted as if I were the problem instead of his "bait and switch" tactics! For the truck I did buy, I am still waiting after a month for David Stanley to send me the title!!! Buyer beware with this dealership!!!

This company has the WORST customer service ever! They're a bunch of liars and crooks. They'll try to force you into a higher priced vehicle. We went in to look at a vehicle I seen online. I told the rep David that I seen the car online and I called. They said the car is still available. We wait and he pulls the car around, and I notice the sticker price on the window. I tell the salesperson, "I don't think this is the right car." He said, "Yes this is it." We do the test drive. We're thinking this car is nice, but I'm still saying, "I don't think this is the right car that was on the internet. The other car had a different interior color." Anyway the salesman is still insisting it's the right car.
So we start the loan process. We get the approval and I'm like, "This payment is not within my budget." We go back and forth in the negotiations. He goes and gets his manager, and he says, "This car is over 21,000. You're getting a brand new car. You won't have to worry about any repairs," and so on. I stop him and say, "I asked the salesman about the price before I drove the vehicle. He assured me that the price on the window was the auction price," (confusing). I showed him the online car. He blew it off, said, "The lender would not approve the loan because it's less of a car." I said, "How? Same make, same model, and less miles showing on the internet model. Only difference is the price and it's a cheaper vehicle. What lender wouldn't approve it?" He says, "Let me go check with them."
He walks back into the office with the salesperson. Wait's not even 2 minutes, the salesman comes back and says, "You really should take the deal." We tell him no and he said, "I don't think you can get the vehicle then." I said, "That is fine," and walk out. The next day I get like 3 calls from them asking why we didn't purchase a vehicle. Well duh you idiots are liars and I'm not about to get a high ass car payment.

Absolutely unprofessional in every sense. We found a vehicle, informed the first salesperson we were on our way to test drive only to get there and it was not there. Returned a few days later when the vehicle was there, began process of purchasing the vehicle. Our bank needed various bits of information about the vehicle, Stephen provided some then hours he text me to tell me the vehicle had been sold the day before. I will not return and I don't recommend this establishment or Stephen. Had I read the reviews here, I would have saved my time. Heed this warning.

Saw a new 2015 Ram 2500 with a special price advertised both on TV and the internet on 13 & 14 Nov 2016. Went to see vehicle and probably purchase but when I got there I found out it was a BAIT VEHICLE and could not be sold as it was already going in a program and known by dealer the previous week but still advertised. Beware of a dealer with this kind of practices.

I talked to Tanner for about a month. He said he had me approved that I needed to bring in three paystubs proof of residence and my dl money down and be able to get insurance. I text him and told him I would be there on a certain date. When I arrive he isn't there. How ironic right? So another guy helped me, let me test drive the vehicle and everything said "let's go in and sign papers." Go in to sign papers, wait about another hour before anybody returns. He returns saying I need a cosigner something Tanner already knew I didn't have. So we ended up leaving after wasting the whole day on these fools and liars. I have contacted the BBB about this issues.

The dealer was David Stanley Ford - not David Stanley Dodge. My car seat was replaced and they offered a free detail for my troubles. They told us an experienced mechanic checked the car over to ensure dash was reinstalled correctly (since it now has a new "rattle" noise). I will upgrade to 2 stars as they did promptly fix their mistakes; however, my confidence was not restored and I will not use their service again.

Do not take your car here for servicing!! They reek of incompetence. We took my Ford Escape in for routine servicing. Since the car was almost 30,000 miles they talked us into AC Evaporator Service for $168. Two days later my husband picked up the vehicle but before he even left the parking lot noticed the air conditioner was blowing hot air. He told the service department who admitted they had accidentally "nicked" something when servicing the evaporator. My vehicle was then in service department for a week while they ordered the parts and dismantled the dashboard to fix their mistake.
Finally yesterday the vehicle was "ready" however the front driver's side leather seat was damaged/cut in several places by a sharp piece of metal. Now my car has to go back in for replacement of the driver's seat leather cover. My biggest concern now is for further damage to my car due to their incompetence that I cannot see or may not notice for several days. I will never trust this dealership or service department again.

Everyone beware... My sister bought a Chrysler 300 but needed a co-signer. They offered $1000 if I co-signed. I didn't want to because I was getting ready to buy a car. But I did it anyway to help my sister and my nephew. They said my check would come in two to three weeks with the title. It never came and now they won't return my phone calls. They will lie to get you to buy a car and they are not very good cars. My sister is already having problems with her car. So I would not recommend them. But would recommend big red sports in norman. I got a brand new car from them. Great service.

I received a mailing from David Stanley Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram at 7609 SE 29th St in Midwest City, OK 73110. Attached to the mailer was a "Money Carlo" card, with tabs to pull up that say match to win. In the upper right-hand corner of the mailer there was a legend, describing what the prizes were for each match. I lifted the tabs and matched triple 7's, which it clearly states in the legend on the mailer is = "WIN! $2,500 CASH--". In the fine print under --, it clearly states no purchase necessary. I brought the flyer to the location during the dates/times listed, and was told that I would receive $2500 cash back after purchasing a vehicle. I explained to them that the flyer said cash, not cash back, and that it also stated that no purchase was necessary.
They then pointed me to another footnote "-", which stated that they would give a scratch-off ticket of for the $25,000 winners. I explained to them that I was not a $25,000 winner, but a $2500 winner and that the $2500 prize referenced the "--" footnote, not the "-" footnote. They told me that the "-" footnote should say the same thing, which it does not. When I pointed this out they simply told me that I could play the scratch off. I told them that I would report them for false advertising and refusing to relinquish a prize which I had won, and they told me to go ahead. This is clearly a scam to get people in the door. It was high pressure sales from the moment I walked until I walked out. They first told me I didn't win, then told me I did and they were processing the payment, then kept coming up with excuses and wanting to show me cars or have me take a test drive throughout the process.
In the end when I said that I'm not going to spend any more time with them until I get the money I won, they tried to tell me they would give me the money as cash back, which it clearly states in the advertisement that there is no purchase necessary. Then they tried to recant and tell me I didn't win, but that I was "eligible" to win, and that I would have to do a scratch off. This is a case of false advertising and an obvious attempt to swindle customers in the doors and into high pressure sales.

I went into David Stanley looking to trade in my current vehicle. D.J. was the salesman. He told me that they couldn't trade in my vehicle but they could get me into a different vehicle. I told them that I really didn't have a down payment and my credit wasn't that great. D.J. told me "No problem. We got you approved for 15,000 on a vehicle." They showed me a 2013 Hyundai Veloster. I loved the car. I sat waiting for hours for them to do the paperwork. I signed the paperwork but Ian the finance guy said they couldn't process the paperwork because all the banks were closed and to come back Friday to close the deal. He didn't want to give me copies of the paperwork because he said that he may be able to get me a better offer and lower interest rate. So I'm thinking to myself why am I signing papers then? So I just trusted that he was really having my best interest at hand and just went with it.
I go back up there Friday and Ian tells me he still can't find a lender after they had already told me two days before that, that I was approved. Keep in mind I had already put insurance on the vehicle, then he states if they can't find a lender then they would reimburse me the money I spent on insurance. Well Monday rolls around and Ian calls me saying that he had bad news - he couldn't get me financed for the car. So I brought the car back and asked for Ian and waited for almost 45 min. He still didn't come out. By that time I was so upset I didn't even want to wait any more so I gave the keys to another employee and walked out... THEY ARE LIARS AND FULL OF **! DON'T DO BUSINESS WITH THEM.

I visited David Stanley of Midwest city on 2 occasions today April 23, 2016. We had gone there because of an Internet price on a Dodge Ram, after showing the salesman the internet pic and vin he brought the pickup to us. We test drove, made a lower offer and he said he couldn't take that offer so we left. We came back several hours later having decided to pay the Internet price and asked same salesman to show us the truck again. Once again he brought the same truck, we looked it over and told him we would take it at the internet price. Salesman came back with paperwork 2000$ higher that Internet price. When we called him on the discrepancy he said it was our fault and we should have know it was the wrong truck, made some disparaging remarks and left. We then asked for a manager and he told us that it was not his fault that the salesman showed the wrong truck.
Once again we asked for the right truck and was told that all he had was silver which we did not want. The manager on top of being rude said he would look for the other trucks available at that price (Internet said he had 5) we asked for a different salesman and were told we would have to purchase from the incompetent one that made the mistakes and no one else could help us. The sad part is that had they given us a competent salesman we would have made the purchase. I have been in sales for 38. I have never seen such poor customer service and down right lying and incompetence by not only poorly trained employees but also management level. Whoever owns this dealership is getting ripped off by their own salesmen and management. If half of these reviews are legitimate I am surprised they are still allowed to sales autos by Chrysler, jeep or dodge.

To anyone reading this review, please, please, PLEASE do NOT make the mistake of buying a car at this dealership. This is the story of my downfall. I purchased a nice red 2013 KIA Optima SXL from this dealership. Beautiful car, not a lot of miles on it. The purchase price was around 26k. I put 2000 down and bought the car and didn't think anything of it. A little while after they tried to get me in on one of those used car buyback deals. I bit and found out that the car was worth 17k when I bought it and they were only going to give me 11k on the buyback. I called to get a payoff and found out that I still owed 24k on the loan after a year's worth of payments. So that means just like another lady on this site, they straight up pocketed the 2000 dollars.
They are SNAKES. I am not so naive to think that car dealerships aren't out to make as much as they can but you get to a point to where it is just highway robbery. Do NOT buy from them and don't let anyone you know buy from them even if you hate that person's guts, no amount of animus is worth putting another dime into their pockets.

So this past week we went to take a look at cars. We were wanting something bigger for the family so they talked us into a used 2015 Tahoe, which was 36,000 on the internet... Well we were going to trade in 2 vehicles. We had "2012 Kia Optima and a 2013 Ford Edge"... So our seller since the beginning said they would pay off the rest we owed on our cars and that they WOULD NOT add the amount we owed to our new loan. So after we signed all the finance paper we're gonna end up paying almost $60,000!!! For that! Something that has already 50,000 miles on it!!
So after we signed they had the ** to say we couldn't do anything about it since we had already signed!!! And I am not the first person they have done that too. They did the same thing to a lady that had bought a car the same day we did and the same thing to my parents. Horrible lying people... But that was my first and last time I ever go there... And I definitely do not recommend anybody to go there!!! BAD, BAD, BAD!!! They just lie to people, that's what they do best. Losers.

This is the absolute shadiest dealership. Do not go there. They've been sued multiple times and previous employees have told me their motto is, "It's not a problem until we get caught". THEY STOLE $15,000 FROM ME! I went in on April 2, 2014 to buy a car and I saw a 2014 Dodge Avenger for a little under $23,000. I had $15,000 cash I was putting towards the car which means I was financing it for a little under $8,000. My payments were set up for $359.99 a month which means my car should have been paid off by February of 2016.
Well, I find out a year after I buy the car that they charged me $36,000! Dodge Avengers are not worth $36,000, anyone can tell you and the sticker price was under $23,000. So what they did was POCKET (STEAL) $15,000 I gave them for my down payment, and made me finance the car for the full price of $23,000. Now I'm stuck with this car payment until 2020 when it should have been paid off by now.

Wife and I drove into the dealer, we had our horses in the trailer not really thinking we were going to get a truck. We were approached by a salesman which was a nice guy, we found a truck pretty quick that we like and ask the price, wasn't told a price, just was told to hang on, after a few min I ask if we could hurry because I didn't want to leave my horses in the trailer very long, they said that I was approved. With no money down and they took care of the TTL.
Went in thinking I get my first new truck ever, was told to bring in a few things on Monday to put in their file. Three hours later we unhook the trailer and back are new truck under the trailer and drove off. Monday I had to work so I called and told them I would be there on Tuesday. The wife and I went down on Tuesday and took in the papers they wanted, was called before I got there and they said they have a better deal on my truck to bring in the old paperwork, we got there handed the paperwork.
One of these pieces of paperwork was a letter from my new boss saying what I make and hours I will work. After an hour of being there I was told that wasn't going to work and was asked if there was someone else that could get on the loan with us. I told them no. I asked if they would wait two weeks for a pay stub, they had the letter saying I have a job, they said no and I needed to clean the truck out. I had my wife and kid with me, you know how embarrassing that was to pull all my stuff out of the new truck and putting it back in my old truck. Then they said I was still approved and when I get a pay stub to come back. So my question is, am I approved or not? And if I am like they say I am, why did I have to give it up? Don't buy anything from these guys and read all these post.

As with any business deal some are smooth and some are terrible. I spoke with two different people from your company and asked about AUTOTRADER cash trade in value. I explained that as long as it is around the amount I would be happy to drive down and see what you all had to offer. Over and over before I left I wanted to ensure this because I did not want to waste 6 hours of my time. I get to your dealership, I am offered $ coming that as long as I get $23,090 for my car then we could do business and I would be happy to buy a truck from your dealership.
I am told by your employees that my car is not worth that. Basically if I 20,000 for my car when Autotrader valued it at 23,090. It is a numbers game and I thought I explained myself before as to buy a Z71 from your dealership you're not going to sell it to me at an LS price or a Work Truck price or another example a Jeep Limited is more expensive than a Jeep Sport.
So coming to this your dealership wants to value my car (confirming with your people) that my car is an SXT and valued at an SXT. When in fact it is an SXT 100th Anniversary addition as what AutoTrader has it at. So I drive there to only be valued at an SXT. Your guy asked what is the difference. Well for starters it house the BEATS sound system with subwoofer, sunroof, special addition leather seat with emblem, 20 100th Anniversary special addition rims and low profile tires, Sport mode/ with steering toggle shifter, spoiler, heated front and back seats, special addition floor mats, etc..
I could go on and on. Point is I asked over and over before driving 115 miles to your dealership. I was looking to buy today and looking for serious offers and serious people willing to make a deal. I am shown a Truck new with 5,000 miles on it, scratches, stains on back seat, and the best price your guys had was about $30,787 for it.
I was looking for new or used. Then I am told since I have $5,000 negative equity it would be hard to put me in a used vehicle. In fact I know this is not true as this is not my first time buying a car by all means. Your dealership is about honesty, fun, and relaxing experience. You might sell a lot of cars, you might have some good deals made here and there but I for one will not be ripped off nor will I be treated as if I was a fool. I walked out, thanked the sales person and left.
This is the first time I have ever driven this far for a deal. Your reviews are great, people say you have the best prices in Oklahoma, Auto Trader recommended your dealership, and I was let down. I am only one person and your dealership will go on, but I am not happy, not satisfied as well as I am insulted at the low ball offer.
Your sales guy even asked what I wanted my monthly payments to be after I said I have my own financing, then he comes to me with a 84 month $489 payment when I already had better financing and I would have been paying over $35000 for a $30,000 truck new. NO WAY I was told before coming down from your Norman store that if you did not want to give me what AUTOTRADER quoted me that AUTOTRADER would buy it for the price they quoted me. My car is clean and no issues so what was the problem? As I will not come back to OKC again AND THIS IS WHY.

I just turned 21 years old and I decided I wanted to look at the Jeep Cherokee. I bought a Ford Explorer six months before but the gas mileage did not work with my everyday commute. Within 5 minutes of the "sales manager" talking to me, he profiled me as (AND SAID TO MY FACE): uneducated, probably has negative equity in my car, and assumed my mom co-signed for me. None of that is true. I am 5 months away from a Bachelor's in Accounting, I have 70% equity in my 2014 Ford Explorer, and my mom did in fact NOT cosign on my car. So I left.
I later asked a friend that bought a Jeep from there if they had a car salesman they recommended. I found one and went back the next day. The salesman was nice. I went in and told them upfront - I don't want to finance any more than I have (7k), I basically want an even trade. I know my car is worth 27,000. He wasted two hours of my time. Pulled up a Jeep that he said I could afford (stickered 30k). I fell in love. He made me wait for an hour to tell me he can give me 22k for my car and sell me the Jeep for 29k. I told him what I wanted in the beginning. They all wasted my time. Very sketchy dealership.

I contacted David Stanley's Internet department about an ad for a 2015 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk VIN: 1C4PJMBS5FW694045. A woman named Marisol answered my call and I asked her questions about the vehicle such as price ($36,694 plus doc fee $359) and any other fees. I also asked her if the zero percent financing that Chrysler Capital was offering on the vehicle was included in the price and she said yes (I asked her this several times over the course of two days). We hung and began texting back and forth. She said she needed to put her hands on this car and she would text me back.
I got a text later that said she had the car and we were good to go. I specifically asked her this because it was a two and a half hour drive to Midwest City from where we live. I didn't want to show up the next day and the car be sold. I told her we wanted the car and would be there early the next morning to fill out paperwork and to pick it up. Later that evening she texted me and said the car had been sold. I texted her back and inquired about another car with the same equipment but a different color (VIN:1C4PJMBS7FW694046). She didn't answer me back until the next morning then sent me a text with a picture showing me she had the keys to this car.
I again asked her the same questions as the day before about price, financing, and any other fees. She assured me that the offer was the same, $36,694 plus $359 doc fees out the door with the zero percent financing from Chrysler Capital. My wife and I drove to the dealership and met a young man named Jack. He went with us to test drive the car (we never met Marisol, I wonder why?). After the test drive we sat down and filled out some paperwork then waited for Jack to come back with the sales manager. The sales manager comes in the office and sits down and says we can't do this deal.
We will have to finance the car through them at 4.99%. He said we couldn't take the rebates and the finance together! I had researched all there was to research on this car and the incentives Jeep was offering. I knew this was not true. Needless to say, but my wife and I left the dealership without purchasing this vehicle. We wasted time, money, and energy that day driving to OKC. My wife and I are very cautious when it comes to dealing with car salesmen, but never in my life have we had people just blatantly lie to us like the people working at this dealership.
We left there angry, frustrated, and most of all embarrassed. My advice to anyone thinking about buying a car from these people is DON'T!!! If you are even thinking about going into this dealership have someone kick you as hard as they can in the crotch! Then convince yourself that the crotch kick is a much more pleasant experience than trying to buy a car from the David Stanley dealership in MidWest City, OK.

Sleazy business practices. First they got me to come to the lot by saying they had a car I was interested in, which they did not. Then, after 4 hours of negotiations with the sales manager and them trying every sleazy move in the book to make me pay more (at one point they thought I would be silly enough to pay 4k OVER sticker). So when we FINALLY got to a deal I was content with and I put money down and signed paperwork just to find out the car they dealer traded for was the WRONG packages.
Dealing with the inventory manager, she was rude and blamed it on me when I had told at least 4 people EXACTLY the car I wanted. I told her the deal was off and to refund my money. She told me that "no, I owned this car". I didn't even complete the final paperwork or LOOK at the car. Now I have to go down there and sign more forms to abolish this deal. I'm glad I went to Patriot and found all the nonsense they put together. I'm furious and will make it my mission that friends and family do not ever waste their time here.

I was there for around 2 hrs. I was about to buy 2 trucks. Had the deal made with Mr. **. We agreed on a price. Deal was about finished when Mr. ** had to leave. It went down hill from there. The finance guys came in and tried to screw me. Said they couldn't do Mr. **'s deal. Tried to tell me the low they could go on the truck was 29,100, but the Internet price was $28,900. It's really sad when you find 2 trucks you really like and a few greedy guys screw it all up.

On Thursday, my son wanted to get the US service member discount and purchase an online Jeep Wrangler that was advertised by this dealership. He already had a loan in hand and agreed to pay the price listed online. He asked the salesman **, he called back, give him a firm out the door price and copy of contract and he would pay a $1000 hold payment and fly out from CO to OK and finish the paperwork to purchase the vehicle. That vehicle, still advertised online, was no longer on the lot. However on Saturday, two more were also advertised by the dealer at the same price, and he said they would be ready on Monday AM and that he would call.
He didn't call, so my son called at 10:30 and asked when the paperwork would be ready. He was told he would get a call within 30 min. No call. I called and asked to speak to a service manager. After taking some information I was told I would get a callback in 10 min. An hour later, No call so I am writing this letter. This dealership's sales department consists of liars with no integrity, including both salesmen and sales managers. They don't even have the courtesy to return calls after promising to do so. After the way they treated my son and I, I can only believe they have no respect for US servicemen and women. I recommend that no one do business with them.

2006 Dodge Ram 1500 "Night Runner" bought in Norman, Oklahoma at Norman Chrysler Jeep Dodge. To begin with, the salesperson was less than truthful (imagine that) and told me the night runner was a "limited edition" and that was why the truck was 14k more than a standard 1500 extended cab that was equally equipped. The salesman took the time and pointed out the "gun metal" blue rims that were "special alloy," the stitched racing seats and did a wonderful job of convincing me that the details were worth the extra cash.
Now "the rest of the story." I got in my new 43K truck and drove it the 20 miles to my house proud as a new parent. Got in the next morning to go to work and put my briefcase on the passenger floor. The carpet was soaked! It was the middle of august and the air had been running so I traced the water back to the firewall just below the evaporator coil. Called the dealership, they said they would take care of it, dropped it off 20 miles away. Initially they asked me what I did to the truck (trying to insinuate that it was my fault), I pointed out that it had only been driven 42 miles since I left the lot. They reluctantly gave me a compact car to use and said they would call me.
Three days later, still no call, so I go back to the dealership. "Part has to be ordered, return the loaner and go to the rental car lot to pick up a car." "Should have it fixed in a week." Take 4 hours of my day to get this all accomplished (missing work), and end up with a sub compact rental. The middle of the next week I get a call from the rental company asking for my credit card so they can extend the rental, I told them the dealership was paying. They informed me that the dealership was only paying for three days, and that I either need to return the car or give them a credit card. Take off work, drive to the dealership to find out what the story is...
They have now had my brand new truck for two+ weeks. Get to the dealership, I am met by the general manager and told that they are still waiting for the parts, that it would be a couple of days and they would have my truck fixed and back to me, and that they would no longer supply a rental or loaner. By this point I am disgusted, I told him that I wanted my money back or another truck. He told me that neither one was happening, that the truck was depreciated $4000.00 and that I would have to wait. I reluctantly left and borrowed a truck from work for transportation. Two more weeks later: (Now five weeks from the date of purchase, and owing a payment to the finance company) I have called every day to check status, the parts manager "not in yet, still waiting" every day.
Finally disgusted again, I walk through the back service area to see my brand new 43K truck with the seats on the floor, the dash out and on the hood, the duct system ripped out and a mechanic in close proximity. I walked over to the mechanic said good morning and said "What is the story on that mess," pointing to my truck. He did not know I was the owner. He told me the a/c needed a new drain pan because it was cracked and they were no longer being manufactured. I exploded, not on the mechanic. I went to the middle of the showroom floor and loudly called out the general manager’s name. The GM came out and told me to lower my voice. I proceeded to loudly ask why he lied to me, why the parts manager lied to me, and demanded my money back. I walked to the parts area to see the parts manager still loudly demanding my money pack and the GM followed.
A screaming match ensued, with both the GM and Parts manager cursing and demanding I calm down. All I kept saying is "why did you lie, give me my money back." The end result of this was the GM agreed to have my truck fixed and back to me no later than the end of business the next day, and agreed to make the first month's payment. No compensation for time off, no loaner car, and definitely no different truck. This was Thursday, Friday I get a call, "truck is ready, come get it." Once again, through the service area to the mechanic, I asked him how they fixed it. "They had me remove the pan from another truck on the lot and install it, it is not the correct pan, but it will work." I went to the GM’s office, not available. Went to the parts manager’s office, not available. Some poor kid in the shop came and gave me my keys, apologized and I left.
Snap to 2015: Truck is not limited edition, just has some stickers and the "special alloy wheels," PLASTIC JUNK that the coating is peeling off (and I cannot locate replacements for). The A/C has worked but the outside air damper, the mixed air damper and the defrost dampers have all broken off at the shaft of the door, (plastic JUNK) and I find out this is normal in Dodge Rams. All I have to do is gut the interior again, remove the duct plenum replace the doors and all will be good. The alternator has failed, the water pump failed, the power steering pump failed, there is a water leak at the back of the manifold that is also prevalent on dodge hemi. The serpentine pulleys and belt tensioner have all failed. Both wheel hubs have failed, the CD player has failed, oxygen sensor failed, the rear end is having issues and the transmission pan gasket failed.
I have performed all of the recommended maintenance items on this truck and it is just now rolling over 90K miles. And the cost is way too high to replace the doors in the ductwork so I have duct tape on the outlets to channel the air. What a pile of junk. BUYER BEWARE. DO NOT BE A SUCKER LIKE ME, STAY AWAY FROM DODGE RAM AND NORMAN CHRYSLER JEEP DODGE.

Saw a 2011 Ram 1500 4x4 Hemi Crew LOADED on their website for $29,988. Called them and verified the vehicle was still available at that price. They allowed that it was and I drove up there. Long story short I gave them $5,500 CASH and I still noticed AMOUNT FINANCED was $33,652... THAT BRINGS US TO $39,000. "I came up here to look at a $29,000 truck." They said it was due to the $2,000 Service Contract that covered EVERYTHING for 50,000 miles with $100 deductible and a $3,500 service charge. They explained those ate up my $5,500 down payment so I was still financing the whole truck, which somehow became over $3,500 more expensive than I was quoted . The only charge that explained any of it was a $732 charge. Not $3,500. Had I not needed to get to Victoria, TX on the rig I would not have bought that truck under those conditions.
Now I've received a Certified Letter from the service contract provider saying my truck isn't eligible for that service contract. I have called everyone in finance, sales, and the Manager and always get voice mail, always leave detailed messages and NO ONE has returned a call. The letter even says that they contacted the dealership on May 26 and told them and that they have to refund any monies I spent on that service contract and they are aware of this. I'm about to head up there, I'm laid off from my oilfield job and haven't worked in 3 weeks and I'm getting my money one way or the other.

I purchased my 2009 Honda Accord on January 23, 2015. I received a phone from ** on February 26, 2015. He stated that my paperwork needed to be reprocessed (for whatever reason) and would need new paystubs from both my co-signer and me. We were told that our credit wouldn't be run again but was run multiple times, causing a dramatic decrease to our scores. February 28, 2015 I emailed ** informing him that my previous employer (which was my current employer during the time of my purchase) was experiencing technical difficulties on their website and HR would not respond to my request.
March 3rd comes around and I still hadn't received anything from the previous employer. Between March 3, 2015 and March 10, 2015, both my co-signer and I received a minimum of 4 phone calls or text messages from a staff member requesting the same information I had already told ** I was waiting for in the mail. During this same duration I spoke with **, who worked in Finance and was the original closer of my deal. I called my previous employer with ** on the phone (per her request) and she heard them tell me they would not release the information on the phone and would mail them out to me. ** told me to bring my W2, as well as my cosigner's W-2 to her and when you all received my paystub, I would get a new temporary tag.
Apparently ** and whomever the other people calling me were, were not on the same page because the calls, emails and texts continued. May I add that ** emails were very unprofessional and he still hasn't responded to my last email. Nevertheless, on March 5, 2015 we brought necessary documents to ** and were given a temp tag for that day, which is not what I was told by ** previously. There was a Hispanic gentleman who helped us because ** was with someone. We resigned the papers and left.
Nonetheless, here comes another phone call stating my paystubs were invalid because when I spoke with Ally Financial I informed them that I was self-employed, since ** lied and left my previous employer on my paperwork. ** claimed we never told him I was self-employed, but that is a lie because he was the first person we told after I attempted to give bank statements to show my income. So all of the traveling (because I live in Texas), paperwork, calls/texts and harassment were for nothing.
Last week my co-signer and I went to ** to turn in my bank statements (which were unacceptable before but somehow were okay to turn in now). I immediately came in, printed off my information and went into the office myself to get my papers off of the printer. This took about 15 minutes. From the time I arrived until I printed my papers off, the receptionists never offered ** (co-signer) any help. They both sat on their phones texting. No one greeted us. No one offered helped. When I asked a young man for some assistance, he seemed more interested in the basketball game on the TV than my request for help. I believe his name is **. We are treated as if we have done something wrong and now we pay for it.
I am still receiving calls from sales reps trying to sell me a new car. I ask every time to take me off the list but I keep getting calls. Also, I have yet to receive my title or my updated tag. I have delayed the purchase of my tag so long that I feel like ** needs to just pay for it! I'm sure there is so much that I am not adding because, well look at how much I've typed. Here are a list of people I recollect working with, that were not mentioned above and my particular experience with them. **: One of two young men that actually tried to help, after seeing no one wanted to help. **: Our original salesman. He didn't know what he was talking about and insinuated to me that I should file bankruptcy to get a new vehicle. ** from Used Cars: Both were very nice and personable. Everyone in Used Cars was great!
**: This guy is a creep! He harasses us every time we come in. An event of harassment includes him staring at us for 10 minutes out of the building's window, while we sat in the car and him stating "just because y' all mad at them ("them" being Finance I assume), doesn't mean don't speak to me when you come in here" in front of several staff members and a few customers, as we walked out the building. He is extremely strange and makes us very uncomfortable every time. **: Handled her job well and was nice during our online chat. All in all I am unhappy and honestly wish I would've purchased my car elsewhere. What I need from David Stanley is my tag, title and for them to STOP calling me. UPDATE: ** in HR lied stating he never received my emails or calls. I ended up talking to his assistant who was extremely rude, as well as the receptionist.

I'm a kind person that always tries to see the best in everyone, but this dealership has made me so mad, that I'm actually going so far as to write them the WORST review I've ever given. The salesmen are a piece of work, but I'm not going to focus on that, I mean, they're salesmen, what do you expect? Integrity? Hah! So that won't be my sole focus here. I just wanted a reliable car and a decent deal.
From the moment I drove off the lot, it's been problem after problem with the car. They lied SO much about the condition of the car. They even lied about the trim level! Saying it was a premium when it was a base. REALLY?! Then there were a ton of issues with the car. I test-drove it, sure, but it was things that won't show up immediately. Things that had been patched temporarily, then fall apart after a week!
I've had this car for 29 DAYS. DAYS! I had to get the alignment fixed, tire pressure sensor went off, had to fix that, then again, and had to fix it again. Then the turbo went out! I called the dealership, and they couldn't care less. They say it's not their problem anymore. Like, really? Do you not have any integrity for your company or reputation?! This has been the car from HELL! (And I don't curse!!!! Look what they've done to me!!) They have zero morale. PLUS their salesmen had the audacity to hit on me the whole time I was there. Even made a dirty comment with my DAD there! Like really? Just all around, the worst experience of my life regarding cars. I would most definitely not buy from this dealership.

We finally left around 9 pm, when we got there at 4 pm.
They also wouldn't let us take any paperwork because my wife still had an out of state license with her maiden name. He wanted us to go get a ok license in her maiden name, come back so he could copy it, then go back and get one in her married name, then come back so he could copy that.

A couple of things about DSD and how they go about getting you. Don't give them your drivers license to "run your credit report". This cause the so called buy down of the interest rate which was tacked on to the cost of the car we bought. Don't take delivery of a car there after dark, as we found the hail damage the next morning when we back out of our garage. Our salesman told me to just wait for more hail damage and get it all fixed at one time. Had a few things like the hail damage and buying down the interest rate been disclosed prior to going to finance, then I know we would have left the dealership before we did.
High pressure tactics are used to get you to buy, like telling you the previous dealer "saw you coming," and "we're going to give you a better deal". After the fact, you find out that buying down the interest rate never favors the consumer. So if you want to look for a Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge or Ram truck, go somewhere else and make sure they don't run your credit report before going to finance.

David Stanley Jeep in Midwest City, OK is a criminal organization. My wife and I went to buy a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit on February 1, 2014. We test drove it and loved it. We were moved around from cubical to cubical for 5 hours. They purposefully wear you out to sign what they print off without going over anything. When I got home, I got really upset for them adding $9,000 for things I did not ask for. So I felt screwed but did not do anything until they called me three weeks later. **, a female sales manager, left a message saying that there was a problem with the VIN number that their paperwork was a digit short and they needed to confirm the VIN number for finance. But not to worry, the loan had been approved. So, we made an appointment with ** for February 21st at 5pm.
When we arrived, she wasn't there so they had to get another sales manager. They asked for the keys to the Jeep and I said "it is at home but here is the VIN number that I verified through my insurance company. And besides, you don't need keys to read the VIN number through the windshield". Then I said, "There are problems with the contract and I wanted them fixed". So they sat me down and told me the VIN number has been verified, but there's a problem with finance, that I was turned down. I said, "You told me on February 1st that I was approved for the loan, then three weeks later I'm not"? He said "the loan was only tentatively approved". I said "there is 700 miles on it and I'm a smoker, so now all you have is a used vehicle".
He then tells me to calm down and let's work this out. I told him to take the $3,800.00, that was what they wrote down in magic marker as trade in for my 2000 Ford Explorer Sport, off the MSRP and I do not want anything else added. Then he tells me, "I can give you $600 trade in." I said, this is ** that Kelley Blue Book says it's worth $3,500 because it was garage kept. He said, Kelley Blue Book "does not sell cars". My wife stands up and pounds her fist on the table and says this is ** and left the office. I informed them that they are crooks and liars.
All said and done, they added $5,000 to the MSRP to the vehicle out of thin air, stole my trade in, raised my interest rate and is supposed to give me a check for $4,000. I said get me the ** out of here. So now I have to pick up the check on February 25th if they don't pull something again. By the way, they lied about the VIN number; it was the same on the original contract. So it was a ploy to get the keys out of my hands before they tell me the loan didn't go through to screw me even more and my Explorer is long gone. I listened to other customers getting the same twisted lies told to them and manipulating numbers to confuse them.
On February 24, 2014, ** from David Stanley called me to inform me that they needed my wife to sign the contract for the jeep. I told him that ** didn't need it, that I was approved for the loan. ** replied that they needed it anyway. I informed him my wife, Sharlene would not step a foot into David Stanley ever again. So ** said he would personally bring me the contract for my wife to sign next to me at 3pm and bring me an updated paper tag, so we could leave on vacation. My wife gets a call on her cell phone from David Stanley at 3pm and he says that he will be at the house in 20 minutes.
Doorbell rings and I answer the door, and an older gentlemen is there not **. He said he was a runner for the dealership. I look at the contract and find out they lied again. Now my wife is the primary signer and I am the co-signer. This is the third contract since February 1st and each time they say I'm approved. I called ** back and asked him what the hell is going on. I told him that he is a liar and that I will be there on February 25th to pick up a check for $4,000 that they owed me due to adding on the $5.000 to the MSRP, because I'm leaving town. If not I will fill out a police report before I leave town so David Stanley doesn't try to say that I stole the Jeep. When I return I will then seek an attorney and see if I have a case. Meanwhile, my wife and I have lost a bit of weight. She's starting to lose some hair and having anxiety attack due to all the stress and constant lies.
February 25th I called ** at David Stanley on his cell phone and got no response. I then text him and said "This is Jeff **, where is my check since I've been approved 3 times". Ten minutes later he called and said we are approved again and while I have you on the phone, I'll call the lender and see if we can get the funds sent to our accountant and have them cut a check for $4,000.00 to you". I informed him that I was leaving for California on February 27th and was not waiting another day. ** asked for the address of where I would be at while on vacation so he could have the check mailed there.
I told him it was none of his business because I don't trust any of you sales people. I told him to mail it to my home address. He said to call **, the accountant, to see if the funds can be released and picked up after I got off work, otherwise it would be sent in the mail. I called ** at David Stanley and she did not answer the phone at her desk nor the page. So I contacted ** by text and said no one is answering the phone at David Stanley and asked him to check out and I'm leaving town. Got no response.
When I was in the mountains, Chrysler called to inform me that we were approved. I told them that David Stanley has no business representing them or their product because of what they do to costumers. (We were told the first time that Chrysler turned us down and now roughly 27 days later, they have changed their minds and approved us?) I sent a text ** that Chrysler said we were approved and for him to make sure that the check for $4,000.00 and a copy of the last contract is sent to my house. (The runner who came to our house said he could not give us a copy, that the dealer would have to do that.) I will seek an attorney when I get back from vacation. How do these people sleep, I don't know. They need to be investigated.

This was the worst car buying experience ever. I called and scheduled to test drive a truck. Upon my arrival it took 30 minutes to bring the truck around because it needed gas. After my test drive I wanted to look at one other vehicle. Following that, I decided to purchase the original truck I drove 40 miles to see. While looking at it one last time another sales woman asked if we had the keys and then proceeded to rip the keys out of my sales rep's hands. She then yelled at her customer to jump in to take it for a test drive. My rep told her I was looking at the truck and purchasing it at which point she responded, "I don't care. It's not sold yet." I was absolutely shocked by her unprofessionalism and rudeness. My rep said to go forward with the purchasing processes, which we did.
Many reps were buzzing about what had happened and the rude rep quickly ran in to get her client's paperwork submitted to try to purchase the car before we could. But after the shock wore off, I realized that if that was the type of people they had running the organization then the same was probably true for their mechanics and management. This was confirmed when the highest ranking manager came to talk to me about my experience. After explaining how terrible my experience had been, he said that was the car industry and completely normal practice. He never apologized nor did he act like he cared. It is obvious management needs a crash course in proper business acumen and customer service. Unreal, but I'm better off not purchasing from them. I urge everyone to stay clear. Don't give them your business.

I received an advertisement from David Stanley Dodge stating (Attention) as letter holder you are DEFINITELY A WINNER of one of these prizes 1. 100.00 cash; 2. Shopping card up to 2,500; 3. Pay off credit card balance up to 1500; 4. New 2014 Dodge Dart car. A car key was attached to the flyer with a number 18293, my number matched. So went to claim my prize, all I received was the run around AND I was passed back and forward like a tennis ball. They was only interested in sale a car.
This was FRAUD, TRICKERY, DECEPTION AGAINST THE PUBLIC FOR THEIR PROFIT to sale cars. It’s all kinds of wrong. I was told that the person that was awarding the prize was in a meeting and would call me. I received no call or return my calls. This was, and is WRONG. It's FRAUD... I would never buy a car from this dealership. No ethics at all. I WOULD NEVER BUY A CAR AT THIS DEALERSHIP.

I purchased a truck from them and when I received the title, it was a LEMON LAW buyback. This information was not disclosed to me. When I contacted used car department manager Zach said I was making too big a deal and this happens all the time. After many many days I finally spoke to an owner, Matt Baker, who said that they would make it right. After 10 days I still have not received my $2400.00 and they still haven't paid the Lemon Law truck off even though it is sitting on the lot for re-sale. This business has no integrity and will lie and cheat anyone. I am a veteran and believe this dealership is about as low as it can get!!!! NEVER BUY FROM MATT BAKER and his dealership.

The salesman, manager, and parts people over-promised and lied about what could and couldn't be done to the car we were buying, just to get the sale. They have no idea what they're doing. Buyers (especially from out of town) beware! Stay local. Their online prices are a joke and you get what you pay for!

I bought a 2007 Mini Cooper from David Stanley in January 2012. Shortly after I bought the car, I took it back and told them that the oil and water was pouring out of the car and overheating. They refused to do anything to help me. They said I could buy another car from them and I would have to take a $4,000 loss on it. I took it to the Mini Cooper dealer and they told me the car had many problems and would cost $4,500 to fix it. The car no longer runs and I called them again and explained the problem and they hung up on me. The car no longer is working and has been in the shop many times to be fixed. The people at David Stanley are rude and won`t help me. Also there was a chip in the front window they promised to fix and they didn't and they tinted the windows for me and scratched the window and said they would replace it and never did. I have been at David Stanley many times to resolve the issue and they told me I bought it and the only thing they would do is sell me another car and take mine at a loss. I would like some help on this, please.

To start with, I filled out a loan application over the phone with Kelly ** to pre-qualify. When I arrived at the dealership, nothing was done on the loan. I had to sign a paper that I was there to buy a Jeep Patriot. Then, 20 minutes later, I had to sign a paper stating I was there to buy it. Another 10 to 15 minutes went by and I had to sign another paper that I agreed to buy it. After that, we went over the quote paper that was quoted in my email and he said that was the bottom price because it was an Internet loan. Then, I showed him a quote from Norman Chrysler Jeep Dodge that was $400 less than his and he said he could beat that price. He walked off and came back 10 or 15 minutes later, after playing this game for about an hour or so, and I was sent to the loan department.
Now, we were introduced to a fast-talking loan officer who would not listen to me and my wife when we asked questions. He had none of the loan papers started so we sat and waited for him to play his games. We tried to tell him that all we wanted was the factory warranty - no extended plans. After being there for about 3 hours or more, we were getting in a hurry to get out of there because we were buying the Jeep to transport my mother back to AR from a nursing home and was running short on time. So, I signed all the papers that was handed to me. After I got home, I read over all the papers and found that he had added a portfolio on which came to $3,995.00, something that we did not ask for and have had removed.
Then, we started the waiting game on getting the Jeep ready for us to leave. That took another hour or so. He could not find the owner's manual or the second key. He also had a problem getting the paper tag ready and messed around putting it on. Finally, we left after about 5 hours without the manual and the key. We then went back to OK the following week and tried to get the second key and manual, but we only received the key. I sent them an email on July 16 about the manual and told them that they had until Friday, July 20, for me to receive it or I was going to file a complaint. It did not arrive so I am filing a complaint about how I was treated and still need the manual. I do not have a problem with the jeep, just the treatment at the dealer.

First off, let me start by saying that I am a Firefighter in the Oklahoma city area. My job involves integrity, honor and a very clear cut mission. This is not the way this dealership handles their business. My daughter went in there to look at a vehicle over the weekend and after 2 hours of sitting in an office, finally test drove a car and decided that she liked it. She also had pre-approval from her bank on a 10k loan at 4% interest. By the time she walked out of this dealership, she had signed up for a loan through their financing and these are the terms: 72 months @ 19% for a $9500 vehicle. That equates to $18,000 for a 07 vehicle. It will be 10 years old when it's paid off if she can't get it refinanced somewhere else.
Not only did they take advantage of a girl buying her first car on her own, they made comments about how I should have co-signed (again) for a car loan. At some point, a person needs to get out on their own and according to Mr. **, everyone has to got through an unheard of interest loan to build their credit. Mr. ** was unprofessional, rude and very arrogant. I can see why he is a used car salesman. Know your role, take care of the customer and don't ever take advantage of a person just because they are young and have a credit score around 600. I will make sure the rest of my fellow Firefighters and their families know all about this dealership and their practices. And of course, we will still uphold our integrity every day and do our job in a professional manner. Can't say the same for this place.

I bought my 2011 Dodge Ram Truck December the 23rd of 2010; it came with a Tires 4 Life program as well. I hadn't had any trouble until my 9000 mile oil change where they had lost my truck and didn't know where they had parked it. It took several minutes to find but it was found and brought around front. For my 12000 mile oil change, I took it in on December 20th. It had 11,886 miles on it and I was about to embark on a 400 mile trip to pick up my mom for Christmas, so I wanted to get the oil changed before I left as it would take it over while I was gone.
When I took it in I was asked if I had the Tires 4 life and or the Engine for Life programs. I told them I had the Tires but wasn't for sure about the engine and the young lady said she would check on it. But that I had to get the tires rotated right now with the oil change. I told her I wasn't going to pay for a tire rotation that is supposed to be part of the Tires 4 Life package when I bought the truck last year. She said you have to get your tires rotated right now. I told her no I am not and I want to talk to the manager. She went and got the manager or so I was told he was. Really, I don't know, but I take them at their word for that. When he came he said I have to get the tires rotated right now and I told him the rotation was supposed to be part of the package. He argued with me about it and said it isn’t and I have to pay so I told him I wasn't going to pay for a tire rotation right now. All I want was my oil changed right now.
He said that refusing to get the tires rotated right now at this visit would nullify and void my Tires 4 life. He never once asked why or to just inform me that they have to be done. He said they have to done every 6000 miles. So if that is the case, why didn't they bring that up at the 6000 oil change? Why couldn’t this have waited until after Christmas when I have more money available to me? This would have been a better solution. At any rate I told him I just want the oil change today and he kept pushing himself on me trying to be assertive. I don't like it when people try to force me to do something I don't want, especially when I told him our conversation was done and he just kept at. Three times I told him the conversation was done. Then he has the audacity to tell me do you want me to just turn the truck around and bring it out. I told him no I want the oil changed like I said.
I told him I would be back at noon to pick it up and then I walked away. My oil was changed and on the next service stick was written “next service on 12//2011 and mileage 11887.” On the receipt it was typed, “Customer refused everything but oil change and he was told that refusing rotates will void his Tires For Life and refusing the MOA voids his Engines For Life. Customer has been told and has talked to Brian **/Carlos. Now I don’t know who Carlos is but Brian I believe was the manager I talked to. But I didn't refuse a rotation or whatever an MOA is. I did, however, refuse to have my tires rotated at that time when if it was going to cost me money that I really don’t have to spend at that time. The tire rotation could have waited until after the holiday and I had been paid.

After many phone call and three days later went to the dealer and found out the main bearing are bad it needs a new motor.
I said, "Fine, put one in." "We can't do that. We need to get you another truck." And I can't have the jeep back. The paper work is already in on it. There was only one other truck I can have and so happen to be traded in just now had to wait for the truck.

I purchased a new vehicle, signed all the proper paperwork on 3/23/10. Later was advised the unit I purchased was not available and was contacted late one evening 4/7/10 and stated they had located another vehicle. They provided all the paperwork and said it was a rush as they had to get it off the books. The second vehicle was finally ready for me to pick up on 4/16/10.
At that time they presented me with the paperwork and it showed a purchase date of 3/23/10. When I brought this to the attention of the finance manager, he just laughed and said he did not care as all the paperwork was already signed and he did not care what I thought.
