Cochran Complaint - Cochran Pittsburgh MegaDealer Scores Bad Reviews

Review by Consumer Protection Complaints on 2009-03-25
PITTSBURGH MONROEVILLE MCANDLES, PENNSYLVANIA -- Cochran Auto Dealerships have operated a mega dealership in Pittsburgh PA for many years. There are literally hundreds of lawsuits and complaints filed against this company and they can be researched. We gather complaints about organizations that do not play fair or follow basic consumer protection laws. Pennsylvania, (which is where Cochran Mega dealers is located), commonly ignores protections dictated by the Attorney General's Office as well as Unfair Trade Practices under Federal guidelines. Pennsylvania has strict laws but they are subrogated without much recourse. The PA Attorney general's Office cannot handle the enormous volume of complaints. The power of the internet along with freedom of speech is the most affective way to negotiate a discrepancy. If you have a complaint, post it. Others are interested in your dealings with unscrupulous businesses. You may want to identify to those that do you harm that bad advertising has as much effect as good advertising, and possibly even more.
Cochran Autodealerships have extremely high turnover rates of employees. Many complaints are actually filed by former employees of Cochran. Cochran has a history of a general disregard for customer loyalty. It is all about money. In addition, friends and relatives who come and go at the dealerships are shown no more common decency than a customer who has owned one of their cars and the warranty has expired. While the car is under warranty Cochran makes a large amount of money on repairs. However many mechanics that are supposed to be certified in each brand of vehicle are rarely certified to work on most of the vehicles. This is why initials are used by mechanics as a code. You will have a near impossible probability of forcing any mechanic to prove he is certified to work on your car.

If you have ever looked at repairs made to your vehicle you will find initials. The exact reason they are placed on or near a repair is so that if you are not happy with your repairs you are supposed to be allowed to have your vehicle repaired at any other certified dealership in the country. However the insider rule is for the dealer to never make a repair when initials are seen without checking the computer. This is done in order protect the dealer from ever pointing out improper workmanship by any employee or former employee of their dealership or dealer companions.

Many lawsuits have been filed regarding these secret codes and comments which are inaccessible to you as the consumer. They can blackball you as a consumer through their dealership.

A generalization of the complaints we have gathered ranks Cochran dealerships one of the heaviest handed dealerships in the Pittsburgh PA area. It is family owned and operated business with heavy financiers who tie directly with Wall Street. Their operations are secretive and exploitive of the consumer in our evaluation. They have proven to be completely arrogant in answering our many inquiries into the voluminous unscrupulous questionable dealings with the consumer.

Are you sure that you are not just an angry service customer out for revenge? Pennsylvania "commonly ignores protections dictated by the Attorney General's Office as well as Unfair Trade Practices under Federal guidelines"...where's this coming from?
I've never heard of your "organization."

Aero, you nailed this one. This is obviously a disgruntled ex employee with to much "cut and paste" time on their hands.
