West Kendall Toyota13800 SW 137th Ave Miami, Florida United States of America
I was given a quoted price on a new 2011 Camry, which included alloy wheels, keyless entry, and 0% financing. Over the course of a week, I called 3-4 times to confirm the deal with the sales rep at West Kendall Toyota. I was traveling from another state to Miami, and had a sign-and-drive arrangement.
Upon arriving at the dealership, the sales rep's supervisor, head of internet sales tells me I cant have the quoted price AND 0% financing. I said well this is what I was told, and that is what I agreed with. If there was miscommunication, I should have been notified prior to my arrival. They bumped up the price $2,000, denied alloy wheels, and no keyless entry (which they told me about only at the end when I was given the keys), and said only then can I get 0% financing. The General manager on staff denied any wrong doing, or responsibility for the mistake, and said this is the best we can do: and offered me a price $750 less. After 2 hours of negotiating for my own original price I was promised for the past week and a half, the manager brought down the price an additional 200. After 4 hours of negotiating, things were stalling. They knew I was a student, and had came here with the intent of purchasing a car. They had me in a position where the customer was almost forced to purchase a car, the trick was to get him into the dealership, and then use their muscle and advantage over me, with my suitcases in hand.
I finally agreed to purchase the car, seeing that it would be useless to pay 100 dollars for a cab, only to come back the next day and hassle and negoiate my way at another dealership and waste even more time. On my way home, Toyota calls me and asks me to come back the nexdt morning because they made a mistake (yes, another one) on my paperwork and misquoted me. They ended up giving me the car for 500 dollars CHEAPER than our original quoted online price. Karma is a B. Please do NOT do business with West Kendall Toyota. I'd rather overpay for a car, and know I'm not getting purposely scammed and baited, than deal with their absurd business practices.
