First of all,all day I saw this commerical for Tri-Cities Nissan for their Midnight Madness sale they had going on. It said that your job is your credit, and that there was this huge sale going on.
Well, to begin with it's difficult enough for a first time car buyer with little to no credit to get a car, but when they say your job is your credit, you say why not. Anyways, when we got to the dealership, a salesman met us at our car. He insisted that the midnight madness sale, was just the dealers staying there, no big deal, no sale.
Anyway, he went around to all the cars, not intent on making a sale, he seemed to care less. Then we went for a test drive, the vehicle was nice, and hey we really needed one, why else would we be there? Okay, anyway. We went in to see if we could workout a deal. He went over and pretended to run our credit. I say pretended, because he really just checked the credit scores, didn't run it, because he said that running it through would hurt your score in the end. Okay..why where we here again? He said our credit scores were too low, that we hadn't applied for enough credit in our names. Okay, that's why we came to the midnight madness sale, trying to get a vehicle, and independance.
Anyway, my husband told him about the advertisment saying your job is your credit. He said, yea but you have to have some credit to work with. Excuse me, but that's not what was stated, and even still, we have credit, just not a lot. So, we end up leaving, seeing that he is not intending on even trying to help. He told us that we would need someone with a credit score of 700 or higher to co-sign.
This is false advertising. And, he lied and said there was no sale going on. I feel that this company is misleading, fradulent, and all together not the best company to deal with when purchasing a vehicle in the tri-cities area. Also, I will advise all my friends and family to avoid doing business with this company and to advise their friends and families to advise their friends and families, and so on. If we did not need a vehicle, we would not have shown up at the so called car dealership. I would at least expect the company to run the credit, instead of denying us the chance to be approved by a lender. FIRST TIME CAR BUYERS DO ACTUALLY GET LOANS FROM LENDERS YOU KNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Anyway, in the past friends and family have done business with this company, and all refuse to do so again. I hope you will follow my advice, even if the situation is different for you, they also try to decieve you with the warranty information. Everyone knows that car salesman are iffy but, these are especially slimy.
