I went to see my buddy, Louis Aguilar, at Port Lavaca Chevrolet. I was shopping for a new “used” truck for my hubby’s birthday. Louis listened to my needs and wants and helped me to find the perfect truck. My hubby loved it and so do I. I was very happy with the whole process.

Review №2

This was my 3rd purchase. My 2nd purchase with Lake Watson. He knows what I want and does a fantastic job getting it done.

Review №3

My service at Port Lavaca Chevrolet has been consistently excellent. I just had it in for an oil change and lubrication and they had me out right on time. I would not consider buying a car anywhere else. The buying experience was fantastic and the service has been the best I have ever had.

Review №4

Garrett was a pleasure to work with for a sales associate, as well as the entire team at Port Lavaca Chevy. They made the purchase of our new Suburban a very pleasant & easy transaction. Thank you again!

Review №5

Scheduling was easy, service was fast considering what it needed. Parts came quick, which surprised me. Top notch updates on the repair progress. Brought that Spark Ladybug clear from Pasadena for your crew to work on it. She runs like brand new, zip zip zoom!

Review №6

Easy to get done kept in touch with the whole process did exactly what was supposed to be done it was a long process on the 2021 Corvette but Port Lavaca stayed with me all the way

Review №7

In the service department Ben has always been very helpful and on point. Hes helped me out most of the time and its been excellent. This guy needs a raise just saying!

Review №8

My car is Burning through turbos bearings, so I had my car taken there to diagnose why fuel is leaking into the oil, but they refused service because I wouldnt pay them 3000 for a new turbo.Why would anyone pay for a new turbo when the issue destroying the turbos is not resolved?Its maddening that they are trying to extort me for 3000.00 instead of just taking my money to diagnose the root cause of failure.I have plenty of documentation showing why the turbo has failed, and oil sample testing showing that there is diesel fuel in the motor oil, there is no reason to burn out another turbo when the root cause is oil contamination.

Review №10

Excellent experience. I would highly recommend

Review №11

All staff were very friendly. The environment was clean and my sales man was super. He made the process quick and easy. Will definitely recommend and return in the future.

Review №12

Buying experience was good.Service after the sale not so good.Very disappointed. Will not be a repeat customer!

Review №13

Worst customer service between sales and sales managers. They will call you 5 times making sure you are coming in, are not in a rush to let you kniw unfortunately it didnt turn out through there banks when they already said you were approved. Had issues when we bought a car and now with getting our daughter into a used car. We will never again do business with them or the Dodgr side nor would we ever recommend anyone to do business with them as well.

Review №14

The salesman was great to work with our trade in first. Extremely knowledgeable in the truck we wanted and was a very nice. The finance USMC, thanks for his service, was excellent.

Review №15

I will never buy another vehicle from port lavaca Chevy. At first every one seemed very nice. I had no issues with the sales associate. However the finance manager was very pushy and even got a little aggressive when I almost backed out of my purchase. There was a misunderstanding in payment and he moved some numbers around and I still did not understand. He did not explain it very well. In the end he said he “waived” the downpayment that I didn’t have saying he had room to eat up the costs so of course it sounded good. He never went over the financing again and handed me my keys and folder. I had a crying baby and hungry kids so I wanted to just hurry up and leave. When I got home I realized he sold me the vehicle waaaaaay over listing price and I didn’t not receive a credit for my trade in. I was supposed to have 4,000 off the new vehicle instead it went up that much. I tried speaking with the sales associate the next Monday but he just ignored my texts. The deal was not great and I got ripped off my trade in. Worse dealership ever!!!

Review №16

Manny was super helpful throughout the entire experience! He was able to find a vehicle that fit my needs perfectly and really made sure the process was as simple as possible. Hes a great guy with awesome customer service and I will go back to him for my future vehicles!

Review №17

Excellent service, professional not pushy sales people! I recommend Port Lavaca Chevrolet to everyone!

Review №18

Ben promised me i would get in and repaired and out in the same day. He kept me up dated and delivered on his promise. My truck was ready and fixed. Thank you Ben!

Review №19

Will cheat you out. I recommend Houston dealerships

Review №20

The salesperson was awesome. But Im still confused on how the beginning price charged is $2000.00 even MORE than price on internet invoice.

Review №21

The service tech was nice and helpful. He answered any questions with great detail.

Review №22

I went to get my car serviced and staff was very friendly. He also pointed out some issues on my car that may need some attention in the future

Review №26

Really appreciate the sales and finance team for staying late and working with us.

Review №27

Adan was great to work with. I left the dealership with impression that he truly fought to get me the best deal possible. I want a copy of the picture that was taken of us and my new car in front of the dealership.

Review №28

Juan Alvarez was our salesman and he was very perfessional and courteous.Did exactly what he said he would!The dealership was clean, all employees were polite and treated us like family. Anymore vehicles we buy will definitely come from Port Lavaca Chevrolet!!!!!Definitely give Juan and everyone at the10 stars. Kirk and Rhonda couldnt be more satisfied.

Review №29

We bought our family vehicle from Manny last year. He made the entire process so easy. Oil changes have been fast and efficient as well.

Review №30

I was treated with very professional help from my salesman Mr keeton and finance manager Mr Gabe very professional

Review №31

At first I was kinda nervous being this was going to be the first time I have had to deal with a new service advisor. Ben had always made sure all my needs were met in a timely fashion and always went over and beyond, but he has moved out of state and I was helped by an advisor named Daniel. Daniel made things easy as well. Service is still exceptional!!

Review №32

I’m just so glad you all got ole Bennie back!!I was going to atzenhoffer because he left. I’ll now drive to port Lavaca because of him. Please take care of him. Hard to find someone like him.

Review №33

Very fast and friendly service will definitely be doing business with port Lavaca Chevy!

Review №34

So glad that Ben is back at Port Lavaca Chevrolet. As always, the service was excellent!!!

Review №35

Review №40

Everyone was friendly, clean place salesman Lake was very polite tries his hardest to work with you but only think I didnt like is when the salesman says he had another option and takes off leaving us sitting @his desk for nearly 2hrs could have @ least said straight up things werent going as planned and would have gladly left all yall did was waste my time never again.

Review №41

Reliable, trusted to get the job done correctly.

Review №42

Thank you to Louis and Port Lavaca Chevy for putting us into our dream family vehicle! The staff there was super friendly and helpful and made the entire experience very pleasant. You’ve earned a lifelong customer in us.

Review №43

Thank you Team Daniel Beltran again for you expedient service and professionalism. Daniel recognizes my education from working at a Cadillac dealership for 7 years.

Review №44

John Bracewell, took care of us this guy not only was he my sales guy that sold us a new truck, he made us feel like we are part of the Lavaca Family. Ill make this drive anytime to buy my next car. Also Allen the Manager did a wonderful job helping us out, actually the minute we walk in the door everyone treated us like it was our home. God bless them all keep up the great work. See you on my next cars.

Review №45

Service was good but I was promised a free tank of gas but everytime I ask about it. They say the pump is broke or they dont have any gas. Just take it to the store across the street and fill it up then.

Review №46

I think they were more focused on selling me a new car, rather than the 4 or 5 year old Tahoe or Denali I wanted. And they succeeded because who wouldnt rather have a new car? As I was leaving, not very much time was spent with me by the salesman to go over everything--he was obviously done with me, even tho lip service denied it. He saw that the washer fluid warning was on and did nothing about it, so I had to deal with it myself. Not what you expect when picking up a brand new car. Was kind of a let down.

Review №47

Service writer was very kind and got my vehicle in and out quickly!

Review №48

Luis has always got me into the vehicle I want a great salesman

Review №49

We had an appointment at 4:00pmWhen we pulled up to the service drive we sat in our truck waiting for someone to come out to greet us, I had to go in to look for someone when I walked in the service writer was to busy texting on her phone then when she came out she never greeted us or asked our name. I told her what I wanted done as far as needing my oil changed tire rotated and balanced the first thing she said was well I will see what I can do.My wife spoke up and said well we have it scheduled she never acknowledged anything that she said. Later I went ouside to check on my truck to see if it was done.It was parked outside the shop I waited a few minutes nobody ever came to look for me so I went looking for the service writer and she was just there visiting with a couple of workers.This is our 2nd time taking our Truck there for service.Your service writers do not go over what they did or tell you if any of the other fluids where in need of servive. This first time I was there I asked if they checked the fluids the service writer at that time said they do check them but they do not refill them.. My question is whats the purpose in checking if they dont refill them.I have bought many vehicles from other dealerships. I can honestly say this dealership is and has been our worst experience.The only thing the service writer did for us is answer a few questions for me. I asked if I have to take my truck back to this dealership for service she said no that I could take it to any dealership so with that being said I will not be back as long as its not needed there nor would I ever recommend this dealership to anyone. No body there is friendly whats so ever..They all are in need of some serious customer service training.As I walked around the dealership not one of the salesman or any of the employees was wearing a mask with this Coronavirus going on you would think it would be of some kind of concern, the mens and womens bathrooms where both dirty spelled of urine.So no I will not be back if I dont have to take my truck in there for service. It would be worth trading my truck into a different dealership just so I wouldnt have to go back there.Thank you for sending me your survey..

Review №53

Good service as usual

Review №54

John was great, awesome saleman

Review №55

The Port Lavaca Chevrolet employees are always friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable.

Review №56

After reading mostly good reviews for this dealership I was very disappointed with my experience. I let the sales person know about an hour and a half before I showed up, that I was coming in to see a truck. When I got there the the fuel tank was on empty, which didnt allow for a very thorough test drive. When we sat down to go over the numbers, the price of the truck had increased by about $1500. The whole experience felt pressured and a little shady. Im not gonna say to never shop here, but I will not be making the drive again.

Review №57

Best ever

Review №58

The sales man Juan treated us good and made it easier for me to decide to purchase the vehicle. This is the only car dealership that did an excellent job

Review №65

Louis is the greatest

Review №66

Quick and efficient.

Review №67

From the time of the sale with Lake Watson, to my oil change recently, nothing but excellent customer service at Port Lavaca. Chevrolet. I would recommend to all in the market for a new vehicle or vehicle maintenance

Review №68

They showed me how to work all the bells and whistles of our new vehicles. They even helped us get the insurance started!!

Review №69

Very quick and respectful

Review №70

The service dept rep was very professional and courteous!!!

Review №71

Was all fine and pleasant until I decided to not buy a car and after requesting my keys back of my potential trade in car the salesman returned with his manager (Im assuming) the manager was not pleasant and spoke over me. He came off as someone with delusions of grandeur. After asking for my keys four times they finally walked me back inside to get them and when I did I shook the managers hand and made a move towards the door. He didnt let go of my hand and pulled me back towards. If you come to this dealership I do not recommend talking with the fat bald guy.

Review №72

Buyer beware! I recently saw a vehicle online for sale. After speaking to a sales men about it, I was told that his manager would give me a heck of a deal if I was to go in for a test drive. I explained I was from the Rio Grande Valley and I wanted to know what a heck of a deal was before I took an 8 hour round trip. After 2 days I was able to get on the phone with (Gabe) the manager. Gabe told me he couldnt go any lower then what it showed online. I understood and we parted ways. 2 minutes later I get a phone call and it was Gabe. I was willing to pay the online price but my negotiations were I would pay that price with tax title and licence. After a little back and forth he agreed to make the deal. I drove 4 hours from my home town to this place and after I was greeted by the sales men I met with Gabe. He then told me he was not going to do the deal and that he could do better at an auction. I did not agree to his terms and left. Obviously he did keep his word and commitment he promised me. I have left messages for the Manager Mr. Roche and I have not gotten a response. Needless to say, after reading the reviews Im glad I didnt give them my business. I would rather lose my 8 hours of traveling time and money then get bad service and bad sales managers from this place. I dont understand how this place can still be in business with this kind of poor management. What a shame!

Brandon was very helpful and kind.

Very easy to work with Louis was great!

Review №76

Review №77

My experience with Port Lavaca Chevrolet Buick GMC was great. The Sales team went above and beyond to get the perfect vehicle for a great price. I would highly recommend the dealership to anyone.

Review №78

Lake was a great sales person I would recommend him to a family or friend looking to purchase a vehicle. They were fast and Got me in to the car I wanted.

Review №79

Dealership undervalued my trade in too much. I got what I wanted vehicle-wise but should have been given a much better deal especially being a return customer. I know where Im not going next time. Ruben is a great salesman though...he is great at communicating and following up. He earned the 3 stars...the fifth would have been the sales manager not shafting me.

Review №80

Helpful service department, set up a service appt.

Review №81

It was busy and a long wait. But well worth it. We got a great deal on our car. The staff are excellent!

Review №82

Would like to thank Melissa Martinez for wasting my day! After email after email on 8/8/19 . She even called and assured me all was good to go. So when we head that way all of a sudden she doesnt answer texts calls emails etc. I talk to magic Mike or Bob or whatever his name was and he assures me there is no recollection of anything Melissa and I had gone over all day. Pretty upsetting and disappointed because of the lies. When I emailed her this morning telling her I was pretty much dissatisfied at how things went she responds later...o I was already gone when you sent the last emails. It wouldve been nice to know. I kept the emails to prove it. Anyway lesson learned.

Review №83

Worst customer service ever I bought my truck I early Thursday morning at 10 oclock they didnt see it until 5 oclock on friday they said they were not going to be able to get to it until monday or Tuesday I bought a battery asked to put it on they tried to charge me 70 dollars to put a battery bought it back monday they said because I took it it put all the way in the back so it would probably be until Wednesd to look at my truck terrible I will never bring nothing to these guys again

Review №84

They did a great job

Review №85

Service was excellent and I could not find anyone place that could compare prices with them on new 20 tires .

Review №86

The whole team treated me great! I actually almost enjoyed the experience.

Review №87

My service was fast and the staff was helpful and friendly. This is the only place I have had my 2013 GMC Terrain serviced and it is important to me to have my service record accurate and available to me if I should decide to sell my vehicle (not likely).

Review №88

DO NOT BUY A CHEVY TRAVERSE. These people totally gave me a Low-ball trade-in offer. Kept my keys while doing the HOURS of negotiating and trying to make a deal. After getting worn down, I made the mistake of buying a 2017 Chevy Traverse, about 22k miles. Within a few weeks, check engine light already on (evap leak) and last night the car went in REVERSE WHEN PUT IN DRIVE. Turned car off and back on, then it acted normal again. Dont buy from this place! And notice how they only respond to POSITIVE reviews on here without trying to win over those with NEGATIVE reviews!

William was very knowledgeable and didnt pressure me into anything. He let me have the time I needed to make my decision. Will definitely go back for my next purchase.

Review №91

Very great customer service

Review №92

Do Not Trust these people. Last year I accompanied my 85 yr old friend to buy a vehicle from these jerks. Found the SUV he liked, he and the sales/finance people agreed to $15,500 total cost out the door. Unfortunately he had forgotten his reading glasses. They got him to step into another room separate from me and got him to sign paperwork for over $23K before I could read it over for him. Now this 85 yr old veteran has a car payment over his budget. He and his lawyer called the manager who refused to change anything. FYI, the finance guy we dealt with was Toby and the salesperson was Louis.
