2 of 5 So close... yet so far October 24, 2023
Reviewer: Travis Talbot from Gilbert, AZ United States  
Autotops Direct had the opportunity for a 5-star rating. But in the end, unfortunately failed to deliver. I purchased a replacement top for my 1988 Mercedes 560SL. All went well. The top was good quality, and the installation was as expected. Unfortunately, a few months later while my Mercedes was on the lift, I inadvertently opened the garage door where the garage door opener connecting arm cut my new top... ugh. My fault, I get it. When I ordered another replacement top, I explained my situation and I asked if there was any discount available or at least match my original sale price of 20% off (email discount code) because I was ordering the exact same top because of my mistake. The sales rep said 10% off is the best he could do. If that's the best, I guess I have no choice but to take it. Two days later I get an email offering 20% off any new top... seriously, are you mocking me?! The top was good quality, the customer service was highly disappointing.

4 of 5 Quality good, follow up not so good. June 3, 2021
Reviewer: Janice Jones from Geneseo, NY United States  
I called twice (once at each option) and left a message at each option, and got no response.  The top I received is nice but it did not include instructions as was advertised.  It also said it was complete and it did not include all the seals.
I am happy with the quality of the top but I am not so happy with wording vs. reality and with your lack of follow up.
