I use them for parts when I have to but they never seem to stock anything I need and it takes a week to get it. I can order online or on the phone elsewhere and have it at my door in 2 or 3 days tops usually.
Bottom line is I have very little use for the dealer.

they're friendly.....they're helpful selling you stuff.......

they charge for parts they don't install and labor they don't perform....$90 per hr.

lesson learned.....it's 2019, not 1979
