I can say without any hesitation this was by far the worst dealership experience I have EVER had in my life.
After finally coming to an agreement on a lease with VW of America on a new Passat, things got flagrantly bad.
First, during final paperwork it was made very clear, no, CRYSTAL clear, that we could ONLY make the purchase if we bought an extended warranty from their company. Now make no mistake, it is NEVER required by a lender, especially VW of America, that you have to buy the warranty to make the deal.
Second, the dealership flat out LIED when they told my wife and I that VW of America does NOT sell extended warranties for their new vehicles. This sounded fishy, but considering they told me I had to buy their extended warranty from the company that they use. I contacted VW of America the next day and verified that VW does in fact sell extended warranties, you just have to go to a different dealership because Dick Hannah VW is not authorized to sell them.
Third, after have the car for two days, they contacted us back and said unless we came up with another $4800 (yes, four thousand eight-hundred) then we could not keep the car. This was on a lease mind you. We told them we would not give them any more money from what we already gave them so they demanded the car back. My wife asked them if they could sell us something else, even a used car, and they said no.
Fourth, we brought the car back, signed paperwork saying it was returned and left. No exaggeration, they treated my wife like absolute garbage. They ignored her and acted like she was tainted by some disease or something. We ended up going straight to Dick Hannah Kia to see if someone there would work with us since I assumed that another Hannah dealership could work with us since they have such a large inventory and wouldn't need to pull all of our paperwork again and we really wanted a newer vehicle. By the way, please see my Dick Hannah Kia review as they were absolutely INCREDIBLE in work with us right away with complete professionalism and genuine kindness.
Fifth, when we went to Dick Hannah Kia, and I am not joking, VW tried for several days to completely refuse to turn our down payment over to Kia even though it's owned by the same company! Not joking, they REFUSED to turn our down payment over to Kia.
Sixth, two days after we returned the Passat, Alex from VW called and said we damaged the car and needed to pay to repair it. Guess how much the repair was? Remember the down payment they refused to turn over to Kia? That's right, they wanted EXACTLY the same amount of money to repair the so-called damage from the Passat we turned in! We told them we'd be there right away to inspect. Upon arrival, Alex showed us the car and there was some obvious damage to the front of the car, but the funny part is when I looked at the odometer there was 12 miles added to the car since we turned it in. We asked them where they drove the car and Alex had the gall to say it was ""only"" driven to be detailed which is literally about 300 yards away. Of course, the paperwork that we signed when returning the vehicle showed no such damage to the car. More on that in a moment.
Seventh, Kia needed some release paperwork from VW (both owned by Dick Hannah) but VW told Kia they couldn't have the paperwork. So my wife went back to VW and demanded the papers, of course VW tried saying it would take two days for it, but she didn't give up. They then started playing silly games with her, like telling her to go to the finance office to get the papers where the lights conveniently turned off on her way there (only one door to the room) and my wife refused to leave until miraculously the lights turned back on and someone was in there... When they have my wife the release papers, no joking, someone had tried crossing out dates and other important information to alter the paperwork.
