"Hi, I went to Visit my local AutoNation car care center and I found out a few things about service.
There is a kiosk for new car appointments but none for service. A nice waiting area is provided.
AutoNation tracks all cars purchased, the mileage, value of the car now, payments and service.
The VIP program generates a print out to the new car manager when a VIP sets and appointment to come in for service. There are VIP reps that will offer to "trade keys" of a newer car at the same payment's the owner has now..
A special bonus is payed to the VIP Rep if they can trade up the customer on arrival . So no waiting for the repair just trade keys and away with a newer car.
The car left for service is detailed not just washed.
A ride to work or home is provided."
