Benson Lincoln Mercury — Rip off
Folks, buying a new or used car soon??? Stay away from Benson Lincoln on Rt 51 in Whitehall! Just like most other car dealerships, once they push you out the door they could care less about you and the vehicle they sold you!. Paid good money for a '94 Chevy Corvette a few months back. They disclosed it was in great running condition and they had performed a 28 point thorough inspection. Drove the car to work 2 times. The 3rd time I drove it on vacation to Ocean City where it promptly died on the highway in Maryland! DOA DEAD!. An $80.00 tow and $2, 400 in repairs later I finally made it back to Pittsburgh. A plethora of mechanical problems had occured on this dandy of a car. A piece of Chevy junk compliments of Benson Lincoln Mercury. And their response to my dilema? "Oh well, too bad. The repairs were suspect and if it had happened here in the burg it could have been fixed cheaper" !!! No offer to to pick up some of the tab, no sympathy, nothin!. That's great customer service aint it???!!! What a crock!!! WHEN YOU'RE 350 MILES FROM HOME AND YOUR NEWLY PURCHASED CAR DIES ON THE ROAD, IT'S NOT LIKE WE HAVE MANY OPTIONS IS IT?? JUST ANOTHER RIP OFF BY YET ANOTHER SHADY CAR DEALERSHIP. They are all the same! DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND STAY AWAY FROM THIS DEALERSHIP! Oh, and get this, the day I went there and presented the sales rep with a copy of my repair invoice another fellow came through the front door complaining about something also. All I heard him repeating over and over was that he "would never but another car from this place!" There's a surprise! BENSON LICOLN, WHITEHALL, BAD BUSINESS! DON"T GO HERE!!! Trust me.
