Good FL Dealer?

While in Taiwan, a co-worker and I talked about the solstice and he is going to check out some dealers back home. He is in the Fort Myer (sp?) area. Is anyone in that are having a particularly good or bad experience with a dealer? We are both flying HOME on Monday night EST. I'll pass on the recommendations to him. THANKS!

I live in the area and ordered my Solstice through Dixie Pontia GMC in Ft. Myers on route 41. I ordered mine in April and it still has not moved into production. I would avoid this dealer if I was you. I am not sure if any other people are having success with other local dealers. Best of luck to you.

Send a PM to "brian carpenter". He's in Sarasota, just up the Gulf Coast from Ft Myers.

I'll ask a client who lives in Venice, a little closer to Ft Myers.

Good Florida Dealer

Although my Sol is not here yet, I have had a nice ride with [Mod Edit].

I would highly recommend the dealer I got my car from - [Mod Edit]. I paid MSRP + $2,000 and got my car in less than two weeks. They were great to deal with.

As mentioned several times before promoting non-Supporting Dealers is not permitted as noted in the forum rules.

Not to great if you paid over MSRP.

Sorry...I was just answering the question that was asked. Who are the "supporting dealers" vs the "non-supporting dealers"?

Sorry Guys... Kind of a loaded question to ask with the forum rules and all.

Sorry Mods.... Didn't mean to get something going in the wrong direction.

Please PM me if you have had a really good or bad experience. I'll pass the info to my friend.

Take care and thanks for the info!

Has your Sly come in yet, Tabletops? Did you change to Envious? What's your status? Good luck, my friend.

Still sticking with the Sly. Going down to the dealer this week sometime and bug him. I think the envious would be to hard to keep looking the way I want( I live in a condo with no easy wash space)

What dealer did you go with? Did you purchase from the dealer in New Port Richey, Dade City, or somewhere else?
I share your sentiments about the Pontiac dealer in Brooksville. They are bad news.
I have been @ 4b00 for 3 weeks now. The Autoway dealer in NPR states the car has reached the railhead in Tampa, but has not gotten on a transport truck yet. Who knows for sure.
Good luck with you car. BTW..my car is a SLY with the Sand/Steel interior.
Hope we pass by each other sometime on the Suncoast parkway!
