I recently purchased a Dodge Charger from the owner/President Pedro Rodriguez. My experience was Very straight to the point, Pedro got me great financing though his bank and was very professional. This car buying experience was like no other I was approved and knew my payments before I walked in the door, which was great because I recently wasted my previous two days at other dealerships. When I walked in Pedro's showroom I seen a very clean showroom with beautiful Dodge Charger. I spotted the Dodge I wanted and was on the road in 20 min. I will continue to purchase from Mr. Pedro Rodriguez and AutoPlanet Superstore.

A very special thank you to Pedro and his Staff at AutoPlanet. I have never had an easier car buying experience. Pedro made purchasing a vehicle sight unseen incredibly easy and he couldn't have been more helpful. My BMW was delivered to me in Delano, in excellent condition and Pedro kept me up to speed throughout the entire process. The sale was quick, easy and with absolutely no pressure. He is an honest dealer and provides exceptional vehicles. His personal attention to each sale is apparent and he really goes the extra mile to make sure that his clients are extremely satisfied. If you are looking for a great deal on a BMW then look no further. The pricing is more than fair and the quality of his work exceeded my expectations. Thanks Pedro for our new addition and we will be long time customers over the years to come.

I just purchased a 2003 corvette from AutoPlanet and wanted to thank Alex for the great experience. I had been looking for one for some time and happen to see this one online. I called on a Friday night and was lucky Alex answered the call. It was late and he was very friendly and helpful. I was at the dealership the next morning before they opened and Alex came in early to let me check the car out. He didn’t hesitate to answer my questions and was great at showing me all of the options and features that car had. I also need to mention the purchasing process was quick and went very smoothly. I also enjoyed the other conservations we had about other vehicles that were on the lot. Some had some great background stories. When I went back to pick up the car I brought along my wife. Alex and the crew were very friendly towards us. They treated us great. Alex also provided us his personal cell phone number in case we had issues or concerns. The entire transaction was a pleasant experience.

Definitely a 5 star experience with AutoPlanet and 10 stars for Alex! It's the only place I know of that you can drive off the lot in a Dodge that's built exactly the way you want it. Alex is a super guy and I would recommend this place to anyone. Thanks again to Alex and his team. I've had my Dodge for 5 days and it's already been at the beach for 3. LOVE IT!

 

 

 


VW revs up recall plan, hunts for culprits in poll

By: Simon Morgan 

 

Frankfurt (AFP) - German auto giant Volkswagen shifted up a gear Wednesday in its plans to recall millions of cars fitted with pollution-cheating software as it boosted efforts to find the masterminds behind the scam.

 

Following the departures of chief executive Martin Winterkorn and sales chief Christian Klingler in VW's deepest-ever crisis that broke 12 days ago, more heads looked set to roll after the new CEO Matthias Mueller vowed to be "ruthless" in getting to the bottom of the affair.

The steering committee of the carmaker's supervisory board met on Wednesday to discuss the preliminary findings of the internal investigation into a scam that has rocked the automobile sector and wiped 29 billion euros ($32.5 billion) off VW's market capitalisation.

A dozen managers suspected of helping to develop and install the sophisticated software, known as a defeat device, or simply aware of the fraud have been suspended pending an internal inquiry, the monthly Manager Magazin reported.

- Who knew what, when? -

Supervisory board member Olaf Lies said "those people who allowed this to happen, or who made the decision to install this software -- they acted criminally. They must take personal responsibility."

Regulatory and legal probes are underway in Germany and other countries to find out who knew what and when, and German prosecutors have also launched an investigation against 68-year-old Winterkorn.

VW's finance chief Hans-Dieter Poetsch, who has been tipped to take over as supervisory board chief, could also find himself in the firing line, given his close relationship with Winterkorn and his key role on VW's executive board.

"Poetsch's possible nomination as new supervisory board chief is looking increasingly questionable," the business daily Handelsblatt quoted a fund manager, Hans-Christian Hirt, as saying.

The suspect diesel engines went on sale in 2009, which suggested the pollution-cheating software must have been under discussion within the company as early as 2007 and 2008, the daily Sueddeutsche Zeitung wrote.

Winterkorn took the driving seat at VW in 2007. His predecessor Bernd Pischetsrieder and the former head of the Volkswagen brand issued statements via their lawyers late on Tuesday denying they knew anything about the manipulation.

- Millions of cars affected -

In the meantime, VW's luxury sports car maker Porsche named 47-year-old Oliver Blume as its new CEO Wednesday, taking over from Mueller who had been in the driving seat for five years until he was appointed head of the VW group last Friday.

Volkswagen, the world's biggest carmaker by sales, has admitted that up to 11 million diesel cars worldwide are fitted with devices that can switch on pollution controls when they detect the car is undergoing testing.

They then switch off the controls when the car is on the road, allowing it to spew out harmful levels of emissions.

Since the revelations on September 18, the VW share has seen nearly 40 percent of its value go up in smoke, although it was showing signs of stabilisation on Wednesday, when it closed 2.68 percent higher at 97.75 euros on the Frankfurt stock exchange.

The German government has given VW until October 7 to explain how it will resolve the scandal.

Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble blamed the scam on the same greed that had led to the financial crisis.

"If you want to succeed on global markets, competition is brutal. Everyone wants to be the biggest," he told reporters.

"It's the lust for fame, for recognition. Time and again we see where it leads," he said.

Germany's Federal Transport Authority KBA threatened to withdraw road approval for VW models in the country if the carmaker did not come up with the recall plan by next week.

VW has said owners of the affected cars would be notified "in the next weeks and months", adding that "all the brands concerned are going to create Internet pages where clients will be able to follow developments".

The British arm of Volkswagen said Wednesday it would recall and fix nearly 1.2 million vehicles.

- Tidal wave of lawsuits -

Lawsuits, including class-action litigation, are also being filed in the United States.

VW has already said it will set aside 6.5 billion euros in provisions in the third quarter, but analysts suggest one to three billion euros more could be needed.

On top of that, VW also faces onerous regulatory fines, including up to $18 billion in the United States -- and the fallout on customer purchases cannot yet be estimated.

Volkswagen owners in South Korea are following their US counterparts in suing the company.

The consumer protection group Deutsche Umwelthilfe said the entire European car industry was involved.

"It's not just a 'Volkswagen-gate,' it's not just an affair affecting the whole of German industry. We have here fraud organised at a European level," claimed the organisation's chief Juergen Resch.
