My husband and I found a 2001 Black Grand Prix GTP at Extreme Auto Plaza in Des Moines for a fairly good price and decided to buy it. We traded in a Dodge Durango for this car. We went ahead with it and after a week of having the car, while we were on our way to Illinois the car broke down on us. We had the car towed to a near by town in Illinois and had it looked at by a macanic and the engine was bad. The estimated damages were $2300. My husband and I ended up staying in a hotel for two nights until someone from Iowa could come pick us up.
A few nights later my husband had to come up with a trailer to go back to Illinois to get the car in an ice storm. He took the car back to the dealership and we called the next day.
Paul, of course, denied everything and said he could fix the car for cheaper, but we did not want that. Unfortunately, he had already sold our Durango and he would not allow us to get a different car. We tried to do everything in our power to reason with him.
The car was put into "his shop" and my husband's car system (the cd player and subs) were inside the car and Paul would not let him get them out. I had to call the police to his dealership and he LIED to the polce and told them that the car had been repossed, although we had the reciepts to prove we had been paying for it.
What I am trying to get at, is that my husband and I lost a ton of money, the Durango, the Grand Prix, the payments we had already made, and the stereo system because as we believe Paul sold us a car with a bad engine.
If I could have hired a laywer to help us I would have, because there is such thing as a Lemon and that is what we were sold.
Although, this happened to us a few months back, we just found this website and realized we were not the first people who were lied to and cheated by this man/company.
We truely hope this does not happen to anyone else and we wish that the company would get shut down. This is NOT right!!
