We went to buy a 2011 Cadillac and decided on a Lincoln MKS loaded at great price.  Deal written up conditional on them fixing cracked window AND most important a Carfax report, they had Auto Check though. 

They said computer problem and couldn't print but said checked and it was one owner, no accidents and clean report all the way.  We were suspicious as only vehicle on their website when looking at it online day before that did not have a clickable autocheck you could look at. We were determined but 3 employees said same thing and lied about the atuo check.  We didn't even know it but had tent sale and the supervisor that lied to us

(over the salesman) was from some outside company they hired to oversee the tent sale, second was the salesman (now fired as put the blame of course on young man been there a month), and the business manager who handled the paperwork.  All told us one owner, clean, no accidents and all 3 promised us the autocheck report before delivery.  Was to come back in 2 days to pick up as they were nearly 3 hours away from us and couldn't come next day.  But they gave us a Cadillac loaner as they didn't want any more miles on our 2004 Cadillac we were trading with $58,600 miles on it (anyone need one - ha!).  This was to be cash sale withagreed that our check would not be cashed and deal done until delivery approval and that auto check.

To give you the summation -

Went to get car and none of things promised such as windshield fixed and they tried to give us fake

autocheck which we caught.  The real auto check after much and many hours of arguing showed major

front end collision damage with police report.  Found they had the car a year.  Told us had 40,000 and a few miles on it and had nearly 49,000.  Told us had a 4 year, 60,000 Lincoln warranty on it and had a 4 year, 50,000 one which was up in about 1400 miles. 

They would not give us our car back, made us keep the loaner and tried to force us to take that car.  Said would not give us our car or money back.  Then said would find us another with same or less miles and no accidents, clean title history all the way.  We had no choice as had our car and our money $24,000.  Went back 4 more times trying to get our car, tried to sell us another for $4,000 more, then $4600 more.  It just went on and on.

Even told us they sold our car, we went to lot (all this time driving nearly 3 hours each way) and no car. Well they didn't sell it and finally held it for ransom/blackmail and told us they were sending that wrecked suto check vehicle they frauded us on with misrepresentation we never took delivery on into the State to title to us unless we paid them $2300 to get our own car back and had 4 1/2 hours to do it or would be overnighted.

We paid the ransom.  But on way to pay ransom we stopped by Office Max and faxed summary and more to the Attorney General's Office with Complaint (cost us $38.00 at Office Max but worth it).  This was

at about 4:30 p.m., by noon the next the Great State of Michigan (new residents) called us and were on top of this and said didn't know anything like this could happen since the 70's and 80's. 

People involved was the General Manager (not sure of name), Tony Deck, Sales Manager at Fenton, Suski Used Cars (not including the 3 others who lied and misrepresented the auto check.  The owner, can't remember name but in this and called us and wow what an ego this jerk had and finally the lord of the blackmail and ransom holder is what he calls himself as the Oprations Manager at the Suski Used Cars in Flint, Mr. Frederick M. Lynch and one who took the ransom money and had our vehicle hidden when told us it was sold.

We now have our vehicle back, on paper (tax evasion) they said gave us $1,000 for it, then why did we pay a $2300 ransom to get our own vehicle back that was in better condition then most any vehicle on their lot even if a Cadillac 2004 STS, it was taken care of with $58,600 miles on it.

They just thought they could get away with taking advantage of 2 totally disabled senior citizens.  We made 4 of the narly 3 1/2 hour each way trips to Fenton trying to get our vehicle back while they tried to make us take the original vehicle (had signed letter it was loaner, etc. as gets complicated but clear we were covered that never took possession) that was a fixed wreck and then the drive to Flint (2 1/2 hours each way) a 5th time to pay the ransom to get our own car back and finally get $21,700 of our $24,000 we gave them back.

Please, anyone with a complaint against this company contact the State of Michigan Attorney General's Office and file complaint and fax it in as they are working on our case right now.  As new Michigan residents it is nice someone with the State is trying to help.  We may never get our ransom of $2300 back but I hope the State does something to stop these blackmailers (all provable). 

Do not buy from these people and spread the word.  It was the most shocking experience and still ongoing for us as now we have less funds to buy a vehicle with as well.

Suski Used Cars Correcting Misunderstanding Happy to Report

AUTHOR: Lake - ()

 Today Suski Used Cars has stated they are going to refund the full $24,000 paid on account for the vehicle we were to purchase bud did not take delivery on.  During a tent sale an outside firm was brought in and there was it appears a misunderstanding on representation of the auto check for the vehicle we were going to purchase. The salesman involved in the transaction we are assured no longer works for them and told the others directly involved at time were temporary contracted staff and not direct employees of Suski Used Cars. The evening the sale transaction was initiated, no management staff working directly for Suski that we know of was present.   As a result of internal review from Suski Management and Owners the facts were reviewed and Suski Management and Owners have stated they are sending us a full check for the full $24,000 as a result.  We are pleased that this has worked out and we  got our trade back and our funds of $24,000 are soon to be returned to us.  We do believe that Suski Used Cars is trying to do right by us in returning the funds, corrected the cause of the original misunderstanding and we wish them no ill will.

Further Update on Suski Used Cars

AUTHOR: Lake - ()

Let us clarify our reviews of Suski Used Cars are our personal beliefs and opinion to best we can determine  in addition with documentation we mention herewith provable, we have posted to our best personal belief as honest as possible.  While we can only assume the level of responsibility of the parties involved, we do not really know who directed who to do all that occured.  We do not have a vehicle from them, have our own vehicle back and they now have $24,000 of our funds (We paid $24,000 deposit, they gave us back $21,700 after deducting $2300 charge for us to get our own vehicle back and put stop payment on $21,700 check to us).  We have received nothing in return for that $24,000.00 from Suski Used Cars.  The issue of the potential in our opinion tax fraud as said our vehicle being traded for $1,000 and one purchasing was to be $24,000 believe and actually not so is up to the State to decide if our opinion is correct or not about tax evasion as we are not experts on tax issues.

We contacted Tony Deck at Suski,, Sales Manager, today and stated he knew nothing about the Stop Payment, he was believable.  Mr. Deck indicated he got the most blame from us and indicated it seems to us others higher up were more responsible.  We can only provide our opinions of what happened by actions, and all but first day he was involved with us the most.  We only posted in our opinion all that we could and have no idea if others were involved as well behind the scenes to what we (husband and I) agree is our  personal belief occurred. But bottom line is would not give our vehicle back and made us pay to get it back and not be forced in our opinion to take the vehicle that had undisclosed front end damage on auto check misrepresented.  For  r. Deck I want to clarify though had no part of the auto check misrepresentation as was not there until we returned 2 days later to pick up vehicle and refused delivery as demanded auto check and Mr. Deck did supply accurate one we based refusal of  delivery for vehicle on (only person).  Others issues are as stated in previous posts as our best opinion letters of doucmentation from salesman, from Sales Manager authorizing us to use the refused not  accepted delivery on  vehicle as a loaner and indicating we had not accepted delivery; letter from Operations Manager releasing us from the deal and responsibility and giving us our own vehicle back for $2300 deducted from $24,000 refund, then a stop payment on $21,700 (difference between $24,000 w3e paid and $2300 they charged us to get our own vehicle back, keys.   The owner aware as far as we know is the one  owner met, was Ed Usewick and he was the person overseeing this it appeared to us and we can only  assume the most responsible party for what happened to us.  We cannot determine why the stop payment as have signed letter by Operations Manager the original deal was voided and giving us our potential trade back to us and all parties signed off.

  The Operations Manager looked over the loaner we brought back extensively before giving us our own vehicle back so we do not know problem, except Tony Deck mentioned very upset over us posting bad review on internet (we assume this one).   People there involved and the degree of responsiblity that brought this all about is the best we can determine for each person in our personal opinion, but the dealership without doubt has our funds of  $24,000 as we have no vehicle from them and have a vehicle back they claim to be worth $1,000 on deal papers but in our opinion it is tax fraud to get price down to get us to take vehicle but let the State decide if what they did was legal or not. All posts are to the best of our belief in our  opinion.  But we are out $24,000.  Anyone who has issue with Suski the same or they feel in their opinion not right should contact the State of Michigan, Attorney General's Office and file complaint (forms on line).

Update on Suski Used Cars Rip off report

AUTHOR: Lake - ()

In previous report we reported that we gave Suski Used Cars $24,000 and our trade for a vehicle, before taking delivery we found out 3 of their staff working at the dealership lied about The Auto Check being one owner, no accidents but demanded the report before taking delivery.  Then when said we didn't want it to sum it up they deducted $2300 of our $24,000 and gave us check for $21,700 saying it was for cancelling the deal, etc.. 

Well we deposited the check July 5th written on Third World Bank and Suski Used Cars put a stop payment on the refund of our funds check.  Do not do business with this company.  Both the Fenton and Flint locations ere involved in this.

Deal was ongoing at Fenton and the Flint location, Operations Manager is one who gave us the refund check and later put stop payment on it after signing releases.  We are now out $24,000.
