On August 30, 2013, I paid $2,000.00 to Car Depot of Miramar as a down payment for a 2007 Toyota Corolla.  I was approved for an auto finance loan in the amount of $11, 441.21 by Chase Bank in order to finance the total cost of purchasing the vehicle.  I was directed to the Corolla by Luis, an auto sales representative. 

The presentation and reception of all the documents required for the sale were primarily handled by the sales manager, Joel.  I was afforded 30 days to return the vehicle to Car Depot should I experience any detrimental malfunction(s) in the vehicle.  Joel assumed responsibility for finding a resolution to any mechanical problem(s) with the vehicle (i.e. repair or replacement of the vehicle). 

On September 3, 2013, West Hollywood Auto Center at 6650 Pines Blvd. Pembroke Pines, FL 33024 conducted an inspection of the 2007 Toyota Corolla and discovered the following issues: (1) Front head chassis bent (2) Engine leaning to the driver side (3) Transmission in need of full flush.  On September 3, 2013, Luis and another staff member at Car Depot of Miramar were made aware of the auto center’s findings.

On September 4, 2013, Joel was made aware of the auto center’s findings and he photocopied the report provided by the mechanic who inspected the vehicle. Joel affirmed that he would have a plan of action regarding trading or repairing the vehicle after corresponding with the owner of Miami Auto Max.

The extent of the damage that the Corolla had sustained was not reflected in the Auto Check report and was not made evident by the testimony of the Car Depot staff.  As of October 6, 2013, Car Depot of Miramar/ Miami Auto Max has failed to provide a safe, suitable alternative vehicle to the 2007 Toyota Corolla. Since I've taken the car home, I have had problems with overheating, loss of functionality (i.e. air conditioning), and shaking of the vehicle. The Corolla has been parked in my driveway while I am in need of transportation to 2 different jobs. I have paid $ 2, 238.00 thus far for a vehicle that I cannot use.
