My partner and I went in to purchase a newer car - we're starting up our family with baby on the way in just under a month and needed a 4 door automatic - something that would fit everybody and that I could drive.
I know the car dealership game that's played.. hold them hostage for several hours negotiating supposedly low low prices to get a mediocre car for a shitty price.
We walked in and said we can afford x amount per month - that's it. Nothing more. This includes financing and insurance.
It took two or three back and forths until the financing looked at least semi-agreeable. Then we hashed out insurance.
During the meeting - my honey clearly stated he had no current insurance.
Well ok - whatever - they hashed it out, got the insurance set up, got the paperwork signed and were out the door after having made our post dated deposit payment.
Fast forward 2 weeks. The insurance company just contacted my man saying that they had been informed he'd had previous insurance and we need to provide proof. Which was a lie on the salesman part to his "friend" who brokered insurance. By not having the prior insurance, it affects the premium which then puts our payments out of the range we could afford.
In calling the dealership to say hey.. if we can't get the numbers we want, we'll return the car, get our shitty trade in and deposit check back and call it a day.
The sales manager (Keith) was apparently polite but told the man that as far as they were concerned they no longer owned it, our trade in has been sold and, despite the fact that we entered a contract under false pretenses with one of THEIR reps flat out LYING to the insurance rep, if we return the car - they'll take it - but it will count as a repossession on our credit.. WTF.. anybody know a legal precedent on this by chance? We're thinking about hitting up the attorney general and putting a stop payment on down payment..
We firmly believe they took advantage of the pregnant situation and the urgency we needed a new car in..
Also - in double checking our insurance documentation we've noted they did not even set us up with the appropriate coverages.
We've also contacted Get Jesse.. according to yelp users, they apparently have issues often.
