Ford Of Clermont, Florida Ripping off seniors/ grossly overcharging for repairs Clermont Florida
My parents are very friendly, trusting people, and they told the repair manager that they were heading up north on a tight schedule in order to get to my niece's college graduation. Big mistake!
Mom and dad were pressured into paying over $1300 for the repair. They were also needlessly coerced into "shopping" for a new car to make the trip back up north. My parents on an extremely tight social security income, and I am sure that they also told the manager this as well. The part for their car costs $300 on several online sites. I do realise that this part isn't an easy one to replace, but a $1000 mark-up is a travesty.I ran into a friend's brother, who runs a Ford repair garage in a different part of Florida. He was disgusted at the price gouging- and the coercement into "shopping" for a new car. My parents stayed overnight at my house when the car was in the shop, and I had advised them of the giant rip off- so the manager took off about $100.
Ford of Clermont should be ashamed of this blatant rip off of seniors!!!!!!!!
