Johns Motor Company Inc
707 Broadway Pawtucket, Rhode Island USA

Johns Motor Company Inc Kim, the owner of John's Motor Group,sold me a car. He swore up and down this car was in excellent condition and needed nothing. He quoted me a price, I countered and was told my offer was accepted. When I returned with the agreed upon counter offer money, he then told me he couldn't accept the offer because the car was not actually his and the person who owned the car wanted the full price. Additionally, he showed me a piece of paper reflecting a $65.00 doc fee which he explained the person he was selling the car for was responsible to pay and I had only to pay for inspection cost. Then he recants and suggests that if the car owner don't pay the 65. , I will have to and tells me 3 times that when I return to bring 105. just in case the owner don't come pay the 65. docking fees. Upon returning per his call to inform me car is inspected and come pick up the car, When I arrive to pick up the car, he denied telling me 65. doc fees, that I now owe him $95.00 plus another $40.00. He changed the docking fees from 65. to 95.  I drove the car two blocks to my home. I awoke the next morning to a huge puddle of oil and antifreeze under the car. I called Kim, he said he was very surprised, no problem, bring it in, he would make it right. Upon returning the car, he then changes his story again.  Bottom line. I own a car that costs of repairs far exceed cars true value.  in addition to the thousands he charged me for the car. To summarize: this guy lied to me, misrepresented the car and he clearly rigged things to temporarily disguise the major issues.Took my hard earned monies that I saved up for 2 years to buy a car with.

 Kim, the owner of John's Motor Group,sold me a car. He swore up and down this car was in excellent condition and needed nothing. He quoted me a price, I countered and was told my offer was accepted. When I returned with the agreed upon counter offer money, he then told me he couldn't accept the offer because the car was not actually his and the person who owned the car wanted the full price. Additionally, he showed me a piece of paper reflecting a $65.00 doc fee which he explained the person he was selling the car for was responsible to pay and I had only to pay for inspection cost. Then he recants and suggests that if the car owner don't pay the 65. , I will have to and tells me 3 times that when I return to bring 105. just in case the owner don't come pay the 65. docking fees. Upon returning per his call to inform me car is inspected and come pick up the car, When I arrive to pick up the car, he denied telling me 65. doc fees, that I now owe him $95.00 plus another $40.00. He changed the docking fees from 65. to 95. , and now I have to pay it and inspection cost that was inflated in a matter of hours. This guy has changed his story several times. I drove the car two blocks to my home. I awoke the next morning to a huge puddle of oil and antifreeze under the car. I called Kim, he said he was very surprised, no problem, bring it in, he would make it right. Upon returning the car, he then changes his story again. He tells me he cannot fix it, but that he would have his mechanic look at it and tell me what is wrong. Mechanic tells me it is a minor oil pan leak and is an easy fix but that he cannot fix it due to issues with the lift. I took the car to my own mechanic to discover a rear main seal leak, a front main seal leak, no emergency brake (which should have shown up in a legal inspection). the tranny barely works and pan had alot of metal in it and a questionable rear end. My mechanic further explained to me that it is illegal for a dealer in RI to charge me for a sticker. While in his office, 2 very large men came in with a problem. Kim made a big show of his ability to physically deal with them. He said things like he was a martial arts person and challenged these huge men to step outside with him. The men showed fear and quickly left.

As I think back, I realize this was a show put on for my behalf to encourage/intimidate me if I planned to come back. Further attempts to resolve this matter in a mutually satisfactory manner were met with crude remarks, threats and dismissal. Bottom line. I own a car that costs of repairs far exceed cars true value. ( total estimated repairs cost of 3800-4500) in addition to the thousands he charged me for the car. To summarize: this guy lied to me, misrepresented the car and he clearly rigged things to temporarily disguise the major issues.Took my hard earned monies that I saved up for 2 years to buy a car with. I now own a car that all I can do is sit in it and listen to the radio (sometimes, because even the radio has issues coming on and off by itself).
