    In the past I have had neutral to bad experiences with service at different vehicle dealers after the warranty ran out. People I have talked to have generally had bad experiences.

    So it was with some "fear and trembling" that I took the stolen/recovered Ferrari Mondail t to Algar's.

    However, I have been very pleasantly surprised with Algar's. They have treated me with professionalism, honesty and fairness.

    I would recommend them highly.

    If algar's keeps this up, I might have to change my opinion of service departments of dealers.

    The mechanical and electrical work should be completed in an estimated 4 weeks. This is much faster than I expected.

    After that, exterior, interior, and audio.

    Since this is my first Ferrari, do not have much experience with dealers. However, the sales and management of Steve Harris Imports, Ferrari of Scottsdale, and Algar's have treated me with diginity and fairness.

    There are multiple ongoing legal actions and a few more that will be filed. As such I cannot comment on this area at the moment, but will be able to at some point in the future. I am a fighter, and I think I will win.

    Algar's did not know if it would work, but they tried it. They tried fixing the steering column by welding. It worked. Have not seen it, but it is suppose to look great. The steering column was critical because it could be "a show stopper". Ferrari no longer makes these.

    Thanks again to all who helped. It helped me be this far along.

    All my dealings with Algar have been nothing but great. To anybody who owns a Ferrari in the area I would highly recommend these guys. Even being from Canada, I have had to call them and ask for advice a few times and each and everytime they have been more then helpful..even faxing me diagrams and code sheets when needed. They are by far one of the best Ferrari dealers I have ever had the pleasure of doing business with.

    Ive heard nothing but great things about Algar. I walk in there every Saturday and talk Ferrari for an hour or 2 with the guys. They are really nice and have no quams if you are in there to look around. Talk to dm_n_stuff about the service bay, his dino just came from there.
