JOHNSONS PONTIAC, INC FALSE ADVERTISEMENT REGARDING "FREE TIRES FOR LIFE" HOMOSASSA Florida
*Author of original report: web site for Johnsons
Vibe #1 had front tires worn out at the 4000 mile mark, this surprised even me. My own 10 year experience of having done this mail job has shown me that I usually get about 8000 before replacement is necessary. The dealer flat out refused to honor the warrantee stating that I must have "abused" the tires. This vehicle was ONLY used for mail delivery and for no other purpose. THey charged me full price for the tires.
Vibe #2 the tires lasted quite a bit longer, up to the 8000 mark. Again, the dealership refused to honor their warrantee, stating that it was not normal wear. While I fully agree that a vehicle driven on a daily basis over a variety of roads may or may not receive better tread wear, a vehicle that is used specifically for mail delivery will not get the type of tread wear as another vehicle. So that 8000 miles IS normal wear for the vehicle. They refused to budge on this issue .
I reminded the owners son Bobby that we didn't even haggle on the priceing of the vehicles in order to be fair. He said that was of no concern to him. He would not honor the warrantee. He did offer a counter-offer of charging "cost" for the tires. This would have been agreeable BEFORE we purchased the cars under the guise of an honest warrantee. I am more than certain that there are a number of individuals who have been TAKEN by this unscrupulous dealership. We have experienced it and have heard of others who have gotten the same treatment. Something needs to be done. EIther they honor the warrantee that THEY stated, or they can refund me the several thousands of dollars that I overpaid for each of the vehicles in favor of their warrantee.
