I bought a brand new 2012 JKU at Smithhaven and had a similar experience. Being new to wranglers, assumed everything was rolled up in the soft top that was sitting under the hard top! NOPE! When I took the hard top off a couple months later realized all the soft top pieces were missing. Went back to Smithhaven and my salesman did some kind of shady swap in the back lot after dark and took the pieces out of another JKU. So the guy buying that JKU was going to go throughout the same BS as I did. I couldn't believe it. Next time I'm going to Brown's!

|JimmyJG||2011 Sahara Unlimited. Loving the color, Mango Tango. Bought at Smithaven but not impressed with the team there. Missing soft top so they give parts to a factory top and parts from a Bestop and expected me to install it. I have no problems reading directions but helpful if all the parts are from the same kit. They also failed to tape the temp regi to the window. Good times but still loving my jeep.|

Agreed about staying away from Smith Haven. Bought a used '07 a couple years back and paid a lot for extended warrantee.
Two days later, I got a call from the finance department saying they forgot to charge me for something and I owe them $400. Should have told him, "too bad, your mistake" but I was just so excited to finally get my Jeep. So, I paid it.
Got a recall notice on something minor 4 weeks after driving it off the lot. Took it in, they fixed it and told me that I need new brakes. I had put less than 2500 miles on it.
A month later I was getting a check engine warning only after I was 4-wheeling on the beach. Took it in, they fixed it. Warrantee should have covered it in full. They never mentioned the $150 deductable.
Wish I never paid extra for that because I will never go back there. Crooks!!!!!!

|wranglerlj06||I would be down for a meet. And definitely a trip out east. Lmk.|
|08-28-2012 06:45 AM|
Did you get that lime green monster?
|08-28-2012 06:44 AM|
Tried to get people together, but no one seems to want to do anything. Maybe a morning meeting for breakfast, with a ride out East just to meet everyone.

|sledghmer||Great car show and swap meet today at the airport. Of course everytime someone had jeep parts I was one minute too late. Just doing some body work on the toy today. Don't know what the last owner was thinking! I think a lift is the next order of business.|
|08-12-2012 03:13 PM|
|rmb||less than thrilled with Smithhaven, and went to Huntington Jeep too. I wound up with a way better price and experience.|
|08-12-2012 07:29 AM|
|sledghmer||Port Jeff has about 6 used jeeps on the lot right now, I pass them on the way to work in the morning.|
|08-12-2012 06:35 AM|
|woody69||Thanks for the info. It's a used '06 at Smithhaven but I'll stay away anyway.|
|08-11-2012 10:31 PM|
I second that Smithhaven sucks. They screwed with me on my trade in underbidding by $2k. Trying to throw all bogus numbers at me on lease. Called bluff on both and they were shocked. I explained were they should be getting numbers from and why there fees are bullshit. They asked if I was in the business...told them no just dealing with shady salesmen for 20 yrs.
Walked out and went to Port Jeff Jeep the next day. Great experience and big selection.

|sledghmer||I actually know the family that owns Huntington Jeep, really nice people and they all drive Jeeps and go to Jeep events. I would go there just beause I think they really know Jeeps.|
|08-11-2012 08:30 AM|
let me clarify- when I was shopping, they quoted me 2k for a LESSER vehicle than what I was quoted over at huntington. They really push the hard sell, and knew very little about wranglers. In fact, they tried to unload a lifted wrangler JKU with CHROME mirrors and light guards on me for 37k. Landed a Rubi for much less with Huntington jeep, and they did right by me as far as adding a few extras like heated seats and the tow package.
One last thing- Smithhaven is notirious for extra fees after the sale, like a destination charge (i think that was the one) which jacks your actual number up after you sign on the line. Careful over there buddy- this is actually my first ever negative online "review" but they left such a sour taste in my mouth I will never set foot in there again.

|kurtz265||Do NOT shop there buddy- go over to Huntington.|
|08-11-2012 07:41 AM|
|woody69||Is there anyone near St James that would be able to check out an unlimited at Smith Haven Dodge? I'm 2 hours away & it would save me a trip. Thanks|

|sledghmer||Meeting up with some people in Farmingdale on 110 tonight around 9 by Home Depot and the movies if anyone is around.|

It was simply in response to a rather rude comment you received. I may be flamed for this, but people on this forum have the right to their opinions without being chastised and then called a "bitch". Be yourself and enjoy the forum and express your opinion with respect and most people here are willing to help should you have any questions. Oh and yes, I drive a JK too from Suffolk.
