I bought a car last week. But, I must have done something really bad

I went thru finance took delev: and was nice to everyone. It has been almost

2 weeks since that day and NO ONE HAS CALLED ME BACK. Should

I call them back and find out what I did wrong as a customer. If I do that

do you think they might let come back and buy another car. I want to say

I'm sorry i was a bad customer for buying please let me know bact ever i did so i can earn my way

back in to that Ford Store

There are still salespeople out there that live for the today sale and that's it. no follow up JUST FOR TODAY!.

Funny perspective... But you bring out a good point Joe!  Do we ever really put ourselves into the mind of the client? We tend to treat them as if they hate us and calling them is an inconvenience to them, when actually if we built that trusted relationship and did things correctly, they most likely are looking forward to that follow up phone call!!!!! 

 

Yea John

Those are the guys standing outside now freezing

Perhaps a hand written card,emails,a fax perhaps....you know, just keeping in touch would put you back in the dealers good grace's.....lol
....Call them one day,one week,one month,6 months,12 months and every six months after that.....This really is all so simple and easy....what the heck?

Joe: Don't feel like you were singled out. Statistics tell us that 95% of the people are never called back. I don't think "profiling" came in to play here!

That was definitely not my client…

 

I send them a "Congratulations card" with a photo of them on the inside with their new car – and the following message (example):

 

Joe,

Just a quick note to say "Congratulations" to you on your new Toyota Tacoma - I hope that you get to enjoy many safe and fun trips in it! It was a real pleasure getting to meet and work for you – and I want you to know that if you ever need anything, I am always as close as your phone! Take care of yourself, and I will stay in touch!

 

Warmly,

Tobias

 

(This arrives to them in the mail a few days after they got their new car – usually with a box of brownies or cookies – with plenty to share with their friends or family members and coworkers.)

 

PS... Do want to know the real secret to my success?  To the person that DIDN'T BUY A CAR I send them a card and on the front it says "It Was Nice Meeting You" and on the inside it reads:

 

Joe,

 

Just a quick note to say "thank you" for taking the time to meet with me to drive the Toyota Tacoma. I enjoyed meeting you.  If you ever need anything – whether it is now, or perhaps at a time in the future – I want you to know that I am always as close as your phone, and happy to help you in any way I can.  Take care, and I will stay in touch.

 

Sincerely,

 

Tobias

 

The really crazy thing here...THIS IS A REAL STORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Disappointing indeed.  Yet, even more disappointing is that no one else from the dealer management staff or customer relations or anyone at all has contacted you.  Perhaps they will....2 1/2 years from now as you edge closer to lease renewal, etc.  Joe, you have an opportunity to make a positive change in this dealerships life!
