you have to go to Jacksonville or Tampa to find one that doesn't have its head up its ass...

Lehman (known by us as Lame Man) = Bad. Avoid if possible.
Eddie Acardi = Worse. Avoid At all costs.
Potamkin = Pretty horrible. Drive north to Lame Man.
Delray = FORGET IT! Go to Acardi.

These are my opinions from personal experiences and first hand accounts of others locally. Anybody agree?

Bird Road Subaru is the only DECENT dealership in South Florida IE: Won't try to rip you off. I dealt with them. Quite pleasant. At first I went to Eddie Accardi. AVOID AT ALL COSTS. They're a bunch of jackasses.

Okay describe jackass?

And when i first came down to Miami when my parents were looking @ houses i thought about buying my STI down here that way i didnt have to drive it all the way from NC, but the second i entered that Bird Road Subi dealer they thought hah young guy probably has no money and just wants to test drive for fun, so they treated me like ****, i wanted to get str8 to buissiness and i was going to pay cash, but the guy wouldnt look me in the eye and was trying to ignore me. So i got furious told the guy off the guy still didnt believe me he was like baaahh another mad teen that cries cuz he cant test drive, so i opened the bag i was carrying bull of money flashed it @ him and yelled "Now do you believe me jackass" flicked em and stormed out, before i could get in the car i had the guy chasing me with his manager and all his other buddys saying sorry and bla bla bla, then i ignored him even tho he was banging on my window and peeled outta there. I ended up buying my new Subi up in NC where everybody is peaceful and nice.

But now that im down here i need a place to do maintanance + my brother wants to buy a 2.5 RS to start with so im looking but ill never go back to Bird Road Subi. I wanna egg there dealer just for being dicks. And i hear that im not the only 1 they've treated like ****.

So you must have gotten some special treatment cuz i hear they're badd.

I'm guessing you JUST moved to Miami.

Do not - I repeat: DO NOT carry a bag full of money around you like that.

And your behavior wasn't much unlike that of a jackass, too.

Anyway, go to Mastro. I'm not sure as to where the hell it is (Tampa?), but that's the one that is held in high regards on these boards.

REALLY MATURE, SIR. I see you approached them professionally.

And what do I mean by "bunch of jackasses"? I went to buy a WRX from them, they tried to sell at 3k over without budging...I brought a whole bunch of research on the price of the car, and they said I could use it as toilet paper...Just SEARCH for "Eddie Accardi Subaru", some guy has quite a ridiculous story posted about them.

Agreed on those above. Bird Road Subaru has not really impressed me either and it is right down the road from where I live. There service was OK, better than Lehman, but when trying to purchase my 05 STi they were ridiculous. Ended up at Mastro in Tampa and was very happy.

Unhappy

I bought a used forester a few months ago, and the transmission cracked almost immediately. Bird Road Subaru claimed the place I bought it from overfilled the transmission with the wrong fluid causing the problem. Anyway, between fighting with the place I bought the car and Bird Subaru I got the transmission replaced, but only after getting a check for $1200 from the place I got the car from.

Does anyone know if they are at all mod-friendly? I assume they aren't after this warranty headache. All I want is a downpipe and and an accessport. Maybe it's because I didn't buy the car there, but to be honest, Subarus are overpriced and the weakest part of the car is the most expensive to fix, so new wasn't an option for me to get a car with boost. And I can't drive it if it doesn't have boost.

Wait until the warranty expires and then mod. That is what I do at least.
