PM me if you don't want to answer in a public forum.

Thanks,

I bought mine from Jake's and dealt with Mike. No problems with PPI whatsoever, they understand the process and welcome it.

PM me for more info if you'd like.

Friends of mine bought a Maserati from Jakes and had it transported to Long Island.
No issues and the car was perfect.

I bought from a private person, PPI was spot on so far (just standard maintenance requirements).

A sign above a door saying they are an authorized Dealer is just that..does not make them magicaly better then another provider,,,

the service and quality is the owner, their people and their integirity...no Dealer Sign makes that happen

how does an authorized dealer let 3/5 cars have issues?

I'm not sure nor am I claiming that this is the norm just my own experience. However, I didn't have to be a mechanic to spot the issues. My assumption is that they figure people are enamored and want the car so they overlook things and trust the sign on the showroom that they'll make it right. For example the particular G that I originally came in to look at (1st color mileage choice) had rough idle fluctuating up and down from 500-1200 RPM and stalled twice in reverse coming out of the dealership. The sales person said we just got this car in so it needs to be serviced but it will be fine (meanwhile I drive by the dealership almost daily and it was on the lot and on their website for over 3 weeks)

Default Done Deal

Closed the deal for this G.

Special thanks to LvnLarge and SocieteMark for their willingness to help out with the mechanical and paint/body inspections. Thanks to everyone else for the feedback I requested.
