Foreign Auto Imports sold me a lemon irvington New Jersey
i financed a truck with these people on April 30 2013. not even a week later the engine began to make a weird noise then it would not drive. we took it back and they treated my boyfriend and i like we were idiots. one of the salesmen took my boyfriend for a ride in the truck so he can hear the noise. the salesman then left my boyfriend two blocks away and told him its his problem so he has to deal with it. we spoke to the manager and supposedly the sales person almost got fired.(I doubt that) that was strike one. the manager then took the truck to his mechanic and he was told that the engine needs to be replaced.
the manager did not want to pay for the new engine even though i had a 30 day warranty with them for the engine. instead he made us an offer that at the time sounded real good. he will pay for a rental until my warranty kicks in with the finance company and they will pay for it. silly me. the truck was in the shop for about a month. i get the truck out and the very next day the water pump had to be replaced. a few days later the starter had to be replaced then a belt then the battery connectors. then yesterday I was driving and the truck just died. it will not start. I had to leave it in the street and it is now towed by the city of Hoboken.
i had the truck for two months and it has been towed 4 times and in the shop 6 times. I am currently seeking legal advice and action. I am inches away from losing my job because of all the days i missed or left early or was late because of the truck and my boyfriend lost his job because the truck left us stranded last week.
please do not do any business with them. learn from my mistake and shop around. they also tried to charge me 700 for the registration when it should have been 200 which is all I paid to them. this 2004 truck has given me more of a hard time then my 1993 Toyota that at this point I wish I can have it back.
