Plattner Automotive Group / Coffee in the waiting room

Sarasota, FL, United States Review updated:

I was waiting in the service area and the coffee machine was turned off! I know it was late in the evening but Doug Plattner - I want coffee now! and it had better be hot! Mr. Doug Plattner of Plattner Automotive Group needs to revisit what it means to have HOT COFFEE on hand 24/7, not just in the morning. And I want Donuts Too! Come on Mr. Plattner how about some hot coffee for your guests!

    What kind of complaint is this? I am a legitimate consumer that researches products and services prior to purchasing. I look for honesty, excellent customer service, and a job well done. Yes, maybe coffee and donuts would be a courtesy. On the other hand, at that time of night, water and fruit would be a better option. However, I am deeply concerned with the attitude of entitlement listed here. I do not see any concerns with service other than the fact that you did not have hot coffee that second. Please refrain from making postings into a mockery.

    Doug Plattner needs to make sure to have hot coffeee 24/7 at all of his sores inthe Plattner Automotive group. I agree with this comment - and I stand behind my complaint. Why would I go to a dealership that did not care enough to have a little hot coffee on hand for it's guests in the evening and maybee some donuts too. Come on Doug Plattner listen up!

    Doug Plattner, Plattner Automotive Group -- Doesnt pay his employees on time so they can pay their rent on time...Matter of fact he told one of his employees not to worry about paying rent. And not to worry about the landlord--who cares about him. You know what Doug Plattner you are inconsiderate and should be ashamed of yourself! I believe not paying your employees is a violation of state laws. Maybe I should report you to them. Them you can pay your employee my tenant late rent fees and my fees for me having to evict him because you cant pay him on time!

    You are pathetic!

    to all you - this man is bad news - whether he is ripping off his customers or his employees - you think it is bad to complain about coffee but understand that the coffee would be the ONLY good thing about visiting one of his dealerships!!!
