car dealer rant

Its been a bad week for buying cars, I had a dealer in Shorewood sell a car from underneath me and not bother to call me and let me know its gone don't come out. Then today I get a call from a friend asking for me to check with my contacts in the industry (one of my clients is a large dealership and they owe me) and find what defines delivery. They traded their car in on Monday, signed all the paperwork, drove off the lot with the car leaving theirs. Financing is approved just waiting for the check to get from the Credit Union to the dealership. Friend gets a call today informing them that the dealership carfax'd the car realized its been wrecked and wants 2500 extra dollars or their car back.

Personally I think this is illegal as hell and told my friend to call a lawyer not me, but I dropped a quick email to my dealership "in". I understand times are tough for car dealers but I don't think treating people like this is going to help your bottom line in the long run. Sorry I just had to vent.

Sounds like a case of telling them "tough shit." Score one for the good guys.

Pretty much what my dealer client just said. If the person trading it didn't sign a trade in declaration then "tough shit". Looks like it may be a score one for the home team.

FYI the dealership that decided to not warm me they sold the car I was looking at was Tyson Motors and I'm going to get the name this dealership. I have a feeling by the time I find my next ride I'll have a laundry list of dealers to avoid for everyone.

Reverse the situation........would the dealer credit the buyer 2500 if the buyer found out that the purchased car had been wrecked?

Why can't buying a car be the same experience as buying a lawn mower?
I don't understand why we have to haggle and waste everyone's time trying to 'come to an argeement'

I bought a car last year and they said, "You know what, I'll give you a deal since it's been slow today. I'll sell it to you for $1000 off MSRP"
I called BS and told them I know that's just a manufacturer's rebate that gets attached to all models for everyone. Farking car salesmen... Can't trust a single one.

That's the one thing I liked about buying my old Scion. They have no haggling on their prices. What you see online is what you pay for the car and the accessories. Just have to say no to all the "rust proofing" and "interior protection."

car dealer rant

I hate car dealers right now too. I just got fucked over by one a few weeks ago. Traded in a 3 year old car that was paid off because I wanted something more reliable and now I've got a less reliable car plus a car payment every month.

I guess I am just used to the haggling concept. I would almost feel like I did not get the best (in my eyes) deal if I did not get to haggle.

As far as this situation, I say the dealer had an opportunity to inspect the vehicle, they failed to do so, it is their loss. What if the car was not in a wreck, but the transmission failed the next day, would they want money back for that too?

Took it to his mechanic 2 days later and the mechanic showed him the car had been in a bad wreck, but that the wreck didn't show up on car fax. My buddy called the dealership and the dealership agreed to return the car no questions asked.

I agree that there are alot of sleazy car sales people out there, but there are alot of sleazy sales people in general. The sleaziest salesperson I ever met was the guy who handles our health insurance at work. I spent an hour talking to him last year on a conference call and felt like I needed a shower because of the amount of bullshit he was throwing into the call.

As for the other dealership (tyson motors) did you have a deposit down? Was the car promised to you in anyway? Granted it was bad practice for them to not tell you the car was sold, but how long did you wait between when you asked about it and when you showed up? That is pretty classic car sales man ship, get them in the door is always the first task of a salesperson.

I'm with ya man. Looking at some car options now, and am getting the worst service. Shoud it really be taking the internet sales manager at a high end dealer 6 days to send 2 emails. Their whole job is to sell cars via the internet/email.

Dealers will play all games, all the time. If they sold the car from under you, its in their best interest to get you in and try to sell you another car on the lot, thus they won't tell you not to come in.

A few years ago we were looking for a Jeep. Called a Chevy dealer that had 1 on the lot we wanted to look at (according to their website). After talking to the sales guy about it over the phone, we decided we didn't want to see it. A few days later, we get a call from the sales manager, and he states they just got a truck load of Jeeps in (7 of them), and to come check them out. We set an appointment, and guess what. Not a single Jeep on the lot. The sales manager was no where to be found, as I was livid and going to give him an ear full. The sales guy was all to happy to try and sell me something else, until he realized how pissed I was. Then they all scattered. It was just my g/f and I in the show room. Horrible experience. Everyone stay away from Grossinger Chevy off Lake Cook Rd.

I agree. I love to haggle the price part, especially since I have family in the business and know EVERY trick when it comes to the $. Also on the first note, buying a car $1K off MSRP is overpaying. Unless it's a brand new model, and a hot car they can't keep on the lot, you want to pay as close to invoice as possible.

I see ur point, but my blood boils when they trick you into thinking they are 'giving you a deal' and you end up playing the game for 4 hours until you get a point where you wear them down enough to give you a reasonable price.

yeah I called BS on that and spent the next 4 hours widdling it down and at the end of the day, I got $4,300 off. Significant amount, but I wanted to reach over and grab 'em by the throat towards the end.
I told them up front if they treated me nice, my parents were going to get an FJ Cruiser the same week and you'd be getting two sales.
They were ash-hats about it so my parents ended up buying somewhere else.
When I came back to finalize the papers, we all rode back in the FJ cruiser and let them know they lost a sale because they were being d-bags. The expression on their faces were PRICELESS!

I sent my last email to the saleman at 3 telling him that I was getting off at 5 and would be there by 7. Recieved the "see you then I'll have it ready" email. From the info I was given it was sold around 4:30 so plenty of time to warm me not to make the drive. I probably would have still gone out and at least looked at other vehicles had I been warned. I guess there is just no service in customer service anymore.

I actually had a really good experience buying my truck at Team Toyota in Hammond, IN just because I think they were desperate to sell a vehicle. I'm not really sure why, but there is an entire row of dealers in what seems to not be such a great area. They were one of the only dealers within 300 miles of Chicago that had the type of truck I was looking for and with very little haggling, I got a great price and a great trade in deal.

The sales person even suggested I hold a set of my keys hostage and make the dealer make me another set for the truck I was purchasing.

Some carmax's have new car lots. Chevy and Toyota are two participating manufacturers. None of them in this area, but the one just across the border in Kenosha sells new cars. I am pretty sure they do the same thing for new cars.

dealerships will tell you anything to get you in the door. They do it because it works. yes it pisses off some people, but it is no different than the sales tactics that most major big box retailers employ. "they can't spend money if they are not in our store/dealership"

Never walk into a dealership without knowing and being happy with the out the door price on a specific vehicle, not just in theory. Then you cab negotiate some more if you like, but should not be necessary.

the last car i bought, I knew exactly what I wanted and what I was going to pay for it. I went to the dealership, told them this, I left with a new car. They were either gonna sell me a car for the price I wanted to pay, or I was leaving. I went to Elmhurst Toyota, good peeps there, been treated great everytime I have went there. Even when I walk in for a part or something random, the sales guy still comes over and makes conversation. I would buy there again

My buddy called the dealership and the dealership agreed to return the car no questions asked.

I agree that there are alot of sleazy car sales people out there, but there are alot of sleazy sales people in general. The sleaziest salesperson I ever met was the guy who handles our health insurance at work. I spent an hour talking to him last year on a conference call and felt like I needed a shower because of the amount of bullshit he was throwing into the call.

As for the other dealership (tyson motors) did you have a deposit down? Was the car promised to you in anyway? Granted it was bad practice for them to not tell you the car was sold, but how long did you wait between when you asked about it and when you showed up? That is pretty classic car sales man ship, get them in the door is always the first task of a salesperson.
Oh I agree, some dealerships will do it out of courtesy, some out of force. I had an instance where I purchased a car from a dealership, ran great for a day and the whole car went to hell.Dealer said they would fix it free, drop car off, a week later i go to pick it up. Tosses 4 SES lights and running on 4 cylinders. Went in the office and had a "chat" and by the end of the day I got a full refund and didnt report him. Sometimes you gotta be a dick to get whats right from these places. Just gotta feel them out
