This is a rip off report in chronological order regarding the purchase of a Recreational Vehicle herein referred to as RV that was purchased from Metro RV in Burbank California on December 1, 2012 by myself and wife. The sales person involved in the sale of the RV was Cheryl Almuina.
RV purchased and obtained from Metro RV which included the vehicle sale price, accessories, documentation fees, all applicable CA sales tax, DMV vehicle license fees, and a RV service contract through Cornerstone United. The purchase was paid for in full by check issued by my bank. Vehicle included the proper DMV temporary registration information at the time obtained.
Contacted Metro RV regarding the expiration of the original temporary DMV registration on 2/20/2013 and was told that there was a mix-up with the paperwork and that another temporary permit would be issued. They also informed me that the original Smog Inspection would still be valid.
After multiple calls to Metro RV, I received a temporary permit issued by DMV showing fees paid on 1/31/2013. Document also showed that an RV Smog Inspection/Certification was required.
After multiple calls and emails to Metro RV, I had an RV Smog Inspection/Certification performed on my own behalf as Metro RV informed me that the original Smog Certification had expired. Metro RV reimbursed me for the price of the Smog Inspection/Certification. After this effort and multiple contacts with Metro RV, I received another Temporary Operating Permit that expired on 7/1/2013.
Emailed Cheryl and Lyn at Metro RV stating that the Temporary Operating Permit had expired again and that I had not received valid registration paperwork from the DMV. I also stated that I was extremely frustrated with their service and was considering legal action as it appeared there was a problem registering the RV. I received another Temporary Operating Permit that will expire on 9/30/2013 after contacting Lyn at Metro RV at which time she stated that there was a problem with the previous lien holder not releasing the title. She assured me that she and Metro RV were working on the issue and doing everything in their power to resolve the situation.
I was contacted by the original owner of the RV who explained that Metro RV had not paid the lien holder the whole amount to release the title on the RV and that there were ongoing investigations regarding Metro RV.
After being contacted, I proceeded to contact multiple parties in order to try and understand the true depth of the issue and how to attempt resolving it.
In closing, I have been paying monthly payments as well as insurance payments since January of 2013 for an RV that I purchased from Metro RV in December of 2012, and have yet to receive official valid DMV registration for the RV in my name. My financial institution (the legal lien holder) has not received the lien for the RV as Metro RV has not paid off the pre-existing balance with the previous owner’s financial institution. I have a null and void $2,990.00 RV Service Contract that I paid Metro RV for, as they never forwarded payment or initiated the contract through Cornerstone United. All of this is due to apparent fraudulent and possible illegal conduct performed by Metro RV as there are multiple investigations pending, the loss of their sales license, and multiple complaints lodged through various institutions online against Metro RV.
I am working with multiple parties to ensure that Metro RV is held accountable for their actions. I am also willing to testify against Metro RV.
