What can I say , nothing good that is for sure.
on or around April 2011 my wife and I went to Petrie Auto Sales.
We were looking for a family sized SUV . The Salesman was very polite, said all the right thing made us feel like we were important. Asked us what kind of down payment we had .I explained that we brought in a 2001 totally customized Red and Black RS Chevy Camaro. The transmission was out so that dropped the value . Still the car was well worth 3000.
The dealership offered me a fair trade in considering it was a dealership ,,of a 1000 so the deal begins. We were told that there were only two SUV that we could choose from, I was very interested in the one veh shown it was a 2005 Ford Expedition. very clean kinda high millage , but not so bad. we traded the Camaro , plus 500 dollars for the Ford. [continued below]....
Now the fun begins.
we were given a paper tag and was told that the reg and tags would be in in around 3 weeks . 2 months later we recv the tags and reg. I had started calling around the three week mark and then on for two month , never go a true answer to why it took so long. our payment were on time up till I want to say Aug.I got a week delq. I called and spoke to a lady Esmeralda, I had made arrangements to make my payment that following Tues. of 500 dollars. that following Tues I did call in and made a 500 dollars payment , by debit card.
now back on track.Oct rolls around and we get a call from Esmeralda stating that we were two weeks behind.My wife exspalined to Esmeralda that there was no way in any shape or form that we were behind , needless to say my wife got pretty steamed about this , in her defense I feel like she had the rights to considering we have the funds record showing the money taken out. in Aug. So we make our reg normal bi weekly payment. nothing said from this point on. Dec rolls around .
The Ford begins to have issue ,, I call and advise Esmeralda that the Ford is knocking and I need it looked at , and that I would make a payment on the Tues coming up. Agreements were made. Take mind this was on a Fri afternoon , NOW check this out. That following Sat a Repo truck show up at my home around 9:30 at night , My neighbor come banging on my door telling me someone is stealing my Ford. I run outside stand in front of the repo truck , refusing to move . the driver threatens to run me over , I tell him ,( get to running runner) By this time I am HOT , I demanded to know who he was and why is he hook up to my Ford, the driver refused to proved any information . I has a person go in my home and retrieve my shotgun , I then pointed the gun in the face of the driver and demanded to see papers or drop the truck ., the driver said that he could get out because the emergency brake would lock , I told him he had 3 second to step out and provide paper or I was going to start blowing tires out of his truck.
Needless to say the driver handed me papers, WOW this is a repo order, not sighed just telling you to pick up my Ford, I told him I have spoken to Esmeralda at Petrie and she new I was coming in and going to bring the truck to the shop to be repaired , I said , don't you like I would have cleaned out the truck if I had any thought that it was being reposed. The driver said look her is the pay hist. I grabbed both papers pass the gun off to another person once I realized what was going on . Wow there it was , a 500 dollar payment made in Aug , the 18 by debit /credit/ back off the same day and reapplied on the 20th for 250 . NOW IM PISSED .. not only did I make the payments , 250 dollars was stolen from me by the inside office of Petrie, I had requested for the pay hist so many time with out ever getting one , now I know why. The Sherrif show up along with two more ,I explained to them what had happened that I pull a gun on the driver , The sherrif explained to the driver , that it would be in his best intrest noo to sneak up on peple property at all . I could have shot him legally. The repo wasnt legally signed , and has to be summited in front of a judge in our county for a replevine . I went ahead and allowed the driver to take the Ford , considering it was going to the dealer shop anyway , I called Petrie that following Mon, I tried to speak to Rick I believe his name is the owner , was hung up on , I spoke to Esmeralda she stated , Yes I know that you made arrangements but the owner wanted the truck . I said look Esmeralda I have a copy of the pay hist and repo order , you set it out for repo , and the payments was back out and miss posted , she said ill transfer you , Mike got on the phone was really tacky to me like I was a piece of crap cursed me out and told me to F my self hung up.
I have tried to get the truck back , I didn't rev a letter until almost 25 days latter , in the letter it said that I had 14 day to try the veh back or it would be sold, If the difference of the balance wasn't owed wasnt meet than I would owe it to Petrie , if the veh sales for more that I would go to me UNLESS there are added fee that needed to be handle do to the recover of the veh.
I didn't mean to write a book , But come on , the people of Petrie , the owner is a crook . and I now for a fact someone in the office is ,
Just remember PETRIE I finally got the pay hist you refused to provide.
I wish there was some one that would help me shut this company down.
