Car salesmen suck!!!!!!!!!!

I was browsing the ford website and am looking for a 2004 F-150. well I email woodfield Ford (autonation store) about the avaialbility of a specific vehicle I am looking for.

well i get the intial response back from them saying the exact one i built on ford website can't be found, but they have a similiar one with a few less options on there lot.

I reply back, thanks but i am waiting for a specific one and I am going to wait an=d look around and thank them for their time.

This was back in early August.

Since then I have gotten 3 phone calls each week and a form email message saying we wish to discuss you current new car needs.

after the first 6 calls, (each time I tell them i am not ready to buy and am just looking right now)

Wellfianlly on Sept 1, I email them back saying please do not call or email me anymore as i do not wish to be contacted by woodfield ford anymore (I was annoyed with there consatnt pressuring by phone to get me to buy right than and there) When I was ready to buy I will be contacting Wickstrom Ford as the chased me away with there contant and I MEAN CONSTANT phone calls.

well again for the last 2 weeks i received 3 more phone calls from them (i never answered and let voicemail answer) and 3 more form emails. each time i replyed to the so-called salewomen's email with a treat to stop calling or i would contact Ford direct to complain. well i still received yet another call TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! this time i answered and let her have it!!!!!!!!!!! I told her I was sick of getting Harrased by her and woodfield ford. He answer? "i Didn't know you didn't wish us to call you, i'll take you off the list right now"

WTF??? Woodfiled FORd suCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

if you document the emails and messages you have left requesting to be taken off their lists and then they continue to hassle you. You can very easily with practically no work take them to court. There is a law that states if you request to be taken off their list and you continue to get harassed, you can sue. People do this and easily win. You could also threaten them with this and see how fast they drop your number.

I have a lawyer who could do this for you if necessary. You could walk away with some extra green in your wallet. With the right negotiating you coudl also walk away with the car you are looking for at a greatly reduced price also with the threat of negative publicity about their solicitation tactics.

Better yet call them up every so often and try to sell them a chevy.

you should have told them you were a lawyer and you will see them in court next month for harassment.


Unless thats illegal like pretending to be a cop.

Just tell them to put you on their do not call list and if they call back I believe you can collect damages and/or they get in big trouble.

I would have called only once, that's 'cause I would have stuffed your ass in whatever car I choose!
