My name is Ashley Murariu. When I first began looking at Vroom's website it seemed like the website was a great way to buy my first car. I picked up the phone and called a sales rep, his name was Devon. Devon helped me buy a 2013 Mercedes-Benz C class. After speaking with Devon the contract came in just a few short days and the car came soon after, but this is where the problems started. I signed the paper for the vehicle, got into the car and the engine light was on! I had to drive the car to my local Mercedes dealership where they did not want to give me any information about the vehicle and why the engine light was on. Later I found out that Mercedes-Benz never recalled the vehicle and Vroom has sold it to me with the engine light on and everything.
I immediately began calling Vroom customer service numbers and I spoke to Chelsea Rice. Chelsea said she'd send over all the information to my loaner about the new vehicle I wanted to swap out with the Mercedes-Benz. Well, this process took almost a month, I waited and waited and never heard anything from anyone working at Vroom and every time I called they kept telling me that I needed to be patient and that they needed to wait for the bank. Finally, after almost a month of not being able to drive the Mercedes-Benz and not having a car at all to drive, I finally received a call from someone named Patrick. Patrick took down all my information AGAIN about the vehicle that I wanted to swap for and after many weeks of waiting, Christmas day I received the vehicle. I was reassured by Patrick that everything would be sent to my loaner and everything would be updated and set up for my payment and I thought the worries were going to finally stop. Although I just received a call from the bank I am financing the vehicle with and they asked me for my monthly payment on my MERCEDES-BENZ C CLASS! I am now currently fighting with Vroom and everyone on the phone because every person is telling me that my loaner has received the new contract but my bank has said that they didn't. Clearly someone doesn't know how to their job.
Vroom has done nothing but ruin my first experience at buying my very own car. Every single person I've talked to did not help me at all and they don't do their jobs nor try and help their customers. Please, if you're thinking about buying a car from Vroom, DON'T DO IT! Save yourself the stress and headache. Vroom is not a good car dealership!
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
