Just an amazing experience from the time I called on the van that I seen on line to say I was interested until I drove it away off the lot a couple days later.All the staff was kind ,courteous and they explained every step in detail and it made my fear of buying at a dealer go away and I have already recommended VanBortel to two friends..thank you, Todd

Slow to respond. Price too high.
Is this review helpful? Yes | No

Response from Van Bortel Chevrolet:

Terry, I'm sorry that you found our price too high, but your comment of "slow to respond" really perplexes me. In the past 3 months, we've had just one person named Terry contact us thru CarGurus, on March 24th, so I assume that was you. We received your inquiry at 2:30PM, I forwarded it to our Corvette specialist at 3:22PM, and he responded to you at 4:23PM. A lot of dealers take 24 hours to answer an on-line inquiry; we responded in less than 2. If you had other expectations as to response time, I'd be happy to discuss it with you.

This was the most relaxed discussion I've ever had. Very laid back and low key. No pressure. Met Kitty and she's a sweetheart. My Salesman didn't push anything to sway our thinking between 2 cars. Same for the Finance Guy. Bought one of them. Will seriously consider one of Kitty's stores the next time. I'll keep the plate frame on the car for "free" advertising.

Had a great experience, everyone was very courteous and friendly. They have a great selection of Corvettes and their Indoor Corvette Showroom was a cool site to see!

would not negotiate
Is this review helpful? Yes | No

Response from Van Bortel Chevrolet:

Since 1985, the price tags that hang in our windshields have read, "No Gimmicks, No Dickering, No Pressure" for our used cars, and "Everyone Pays The Same Low Price" for our new vehicles. I apologize if that wasn't made clear to you, but don't you think it's just a little unfair to give us a poor review for trying to make the car-buying process easier and fairer for all?

What a waste of time 3 hrs to get there ,Then get insulted its like there cars are the only ones worth anything .The 2002 vette I looked at has some major elctrical problems and I wonder why with just 35000 miles it has a lot of paint work done to it .The top is starting to rot in the seams . just an overall bad experiance.

Dealer seemed unprepared and lacking much requested info. The Car itself was a GREAT deal so I tolerated the issues...If car wasn't so great, would not have done business there. Made many trips due to key staff missing during lunchtime and an inspection sticker problem...seemed like they were so small they had one person to do each particular thing and no one else could fill in- so much waiting and multiple trips. Felt awkward the whole time.People work to pay for cars and come at lunch to do business and key people were missing. Dealer would not even consider my trade or look at- seemed like didn't want to put forth any effort to re-sell. I sold same day out right for $3,000.-whole experience was disappointing and very non-chalant from the dealer standpoint. Car is great tho. Would not recommend dealer for sales again unfortunately. That is my honest opinion. Sorry

Response from Van Bortel Chevrolet:

I became aware of CarGurus reviews only recently, so I apologize that this response appears now. However, this transaction took place during the previous owner's tenure, and does not reflect the level of service and treatment that the Van Bortel family of dealerships is so famous for.  Regardless- Shelly, if you do get to read this, please contact me personally and let me offer something for your inconveniences.
