Overall Experience (1 lowest 5 highest): 5
Work Performed/Attempted: n/a
Recommended? (Yes or No): Yes
Additional Comments: in terms of price, I could have gone to ST to get an even better deal by buying the 4th 2011 of the year but Alana had the car I wanted and I was on deadline to buy this one...i did get a good amount of freebees so that made up for it...but most important, they had the car i wanted and with only 8 miles on it...if i bought it from ST, they would have to trade for it and put on 80 miles + train tickets + time...wouldnt of made much difference anyway...dont get my wrong, i love ST and Ryan and will still be buying all cars from them in the future, as well as referring people there.

Additional Comments: SA was nice and friendly, but the techs only resolved 1 out of 3 complaints that i had....they didnt seem to care and thought i was crazy for complaining about rattles....they only fixed the dash rattle but the rest is still there...but the dash rattle they fixed isnt 100% fixed...still comes and goes....i think ill just stop with this brand after these are dust.
