Last October, I purchased a new C6 from out of town. Now that it's time for routine maintenance (under warranty), what Houston dealership is rated the best for working on Corvettes? Thanks.

Bought my 2011 GS from Classic Chevrolet in Sugarland and have been pleased with routine maintenance. Mike Misner is the service writer I always use. Treats my car as if its his own.

I'm in the same situation, and Mac Haik on the Katy Fwy at Kirkwood took care of me. I can't say much more than that, really, but I was happy.

Classic seems good, I've only been there a couple of times and also dealt with Mike Misner. They have a huge parts inventory so lack of a part will likely never slow your work order. Also Mike will work with you together with the technician so they keep you informed. I like that.

They are sponsors of Bumberas garage that specializes in high performance and I think the connection is worth checking out. Because my car is also under warranty I've not had Bumberas work on it but they did work on my caddy CTS and work was done well.

Mac Haik has been my service dealer of choice. Been working with Russell Casteel (service advisor) for over 12 years now.

I have used Mac Haik for the last 15 years. Their service advisors have been great although they don't seem to stay. At least the ones that I get. Just bought the Corvette last year. I have used Carlos at Classic for my wifes car with great results. Glad to hear that they are Corvette friendly. Their parts department has never disappointed me.

RPM Automotive is great for Corvettes. Tommy Walker knows his way around Vettes. AAA approved and very fair pricing. Had two C4 with hard to find parts resolved. Also C5 serviced. Now I have a C6 and they will keep my business.

I've had super service out of Parkway for mechanical issues and general maintenance. Not as positive with paint and body shop.

Frank's Vettes on Louetta in Spring. ALL he does is corvettes and his labor rates are cheaper than dealerships. Better yet, he knows vettes inside and out. Have taken all my vettes there for years and wont take them anywhere else.

See Russel Casteel at Mac-Haik on I-10. He treats vette owners right.

Thanks for all of your input. Looks like I'll be calling Russel Casteel for my next oil change.

Please keep this in mind when posting about non-supporting vendors. It's okay to mention their name, but most other information about them should not be posted.

Quote:
Members are not prohibited from mentioning it when they have a good (or bad, for that matter) experience with a non-supporting vendor. But such mentions cannot be so specific (address, phone number, e-mail address, URL, price, part number, offer to send contact information via PMs, etc.) or so frequent that they become marketing and promotional references.
