I honestly don't know where to begin, but I suppose a good place is at the fact that they have called me 'Joshey' in every email. First off, who is actually named Joshey? I'd like to know, honestly. If I write my name down as Joshua, how do you confuse the two? I actually probably wrote Josh, but either way, Joshey? Sigh.
I've received the most obnoxious of 'routine' emails from this Mercedes-Benz dealership after I went in to look at the S-Class... I was informed that the new Maybach replacement would be out in April, so I told them I'd rather hold off until it's released because I'd prefer it over the standard S550.
I gave them an email address that I hardly use, primarily because they're a car dealership and we all know how obnoxious they can be -- this is an entirely new level though. Why was I sent 5 emails from a person I had never even met? The salesman I interacted with at the dealership was a male, this clearly is not. If it is, their name is just as bad as Joshey.
I was very specific with my wants, a white Maybach. I don't know why all of these follow ups were sent out before the car was even released, it began hitting dealers last weekend and the salesman I actually spoke with gave me the courtesy of leaving a voicemail notifying that a white one was sitting in the showroom. This is exactly what I had requested and I was appreciative of it.
I actually ended up selling the car for them -- I want the longer wheelbase which isn't out yet, this is more of a 57 replacement than a 62 replacement, so I hit one of my friends and let them know they had 3 in stock. He bought it the same night I received the voicemail.
I'm just curious what they expect to achieve by sending out all of these unsolicited messages that have nothing to do with the car buying experience. I feel as if I should sign her up for my baby panda and turtle newsletter so she can see how obnoxious it is to receive random things that have nothing to do with anything you enjoy. But she probably likes baby pandas and would become a real subscriber, which may not be a bad thing.
I really wish they weren't so annoying, I'd be more interested in actually doing business with them. Now when they car I want arrives, I'll be going to another dealership just because of how poor of an experience this has been. There's no reason you've emailed me 5 times in a month when you didn't even send messages in relation to the vehicle I inquired about.
