scAlexandria closing

This just in:
Quote:
smart center Alexandria, is closing effective June 15, 2011. The team at smart center Alexandria has done a tremendous job launching the brand in the marketplace and we appreciate all their support over the past few years. ...[list of alternatives: scTysons, scGermantown & scAnnapolis]

President, smart USA


Add: Mark, Jorge and the crew will still take care of the smart, but not as a full-fledged smart center, no warranty...

yeah that sucks. With Tyson's being so torn up, that is the last place I want to go. I was almost due for my 20K (2008 passion) and safety inspection, so I just made an appointment. Thanks for the heads up on Mark and Jorge and crew. I'll talk to them on Friday. For normal stuff it would be worth using them.

For what it is worth the folks at Tysons Corner Smart center will make it worth the while to get work done on your Smart there. I have had both warranty work done at Tysons and maintenance work and they are very good, totally top notch.

Aw, Alexandria is the dealership I've been using. This isn't a surprise since they aren't an MB dealership, but it's still sad.

I am sure the Tyson's dealer is great. I am not far from the Alexandria, so it's a haul with traffic and construction to go to Tysons. I rarely go that way. I'll also be having to inconvenience a friend. Hopefully by next year it'll be better.

This saddens me.

Smart Center Alexandria was MY dealership.
Smart Center Tysons had jerked my chain more than a few times.

Va Bch smartcenter (aka Checkered Flag) had a mercedes division but that didn't matter. they lost their franchise Tysinger Motors does Mercedes and Hyundai yet they get the franchise, sometimes it's just the flip of the coin I guess.

scAlexandria was the best.

I even emailed the president of the company to extol how great they are/were.

Tysons has jerked your chain? In what way have they? It has never been my experience with them in the least.
