Let me first introduce my self, I am 19 years old and currently in college learning how to fly airplanes. I am an honest person and in fact a highly accomplished Eagle Scout. I am honest to everyone I meet and I expect the same treatment in return. I am also a respectful, and well educated person. I had a little extra money to spend so I figured why not get a jet ski, long story short I found what a guy named Danny was selling. A "2007 Sea Doo RXT with 23 hours" (actually a 2006 Sea Doo RXT with over 200 hours cause the clock had been changed).

I told Danny I was ready to buy the jet ski, so I ended up at Foreman Motors, (which I thought I was just buying from someone private sale). I got inside and Giesel (or what ever her name is) rushed me into the back and insisted I give her the money (I hadnt even seen the ski yet). I said hold on I want to see the jet ski first. So I went across the street to the pawn shop and I looked over the ski, which it did look nice. Come to find out, the battery is dead. They jump it with another car, it sounds like a jet ski, (It only had 23 hours on it right) so I decide that I am going to buy it.

I get back inside, give Geisel the money first, then the paper work. Shes putting papers in my face faster than I can sign them, and at one point I asked, "what am I signing?" "she said oh its nothing, just paperwork that we have to keep on file". Once the paperwork is done, the new battery takes about 3 hours to arrive (the autoparts store is right down the road), but it gets there, the mechanic and I put it in and I left. Unhappy. Got the jet ski to water finally, put it in, and it gets about 500' out and dies.

Took it to a couple friends who said it has a bad cylinder, bring it back. Brought it back to Foreman Motors and was told that Danny had already taken my $5000 cash and that I would have to come in on monday and talk to him. I asked the lady, will Danny even do anything for me? She said oh yeah Dannys great. Meanwhile I'm hearing from every last one of his employees how much they hate their job. I took the jet ski home, and put it in my garage.

Come monday, I brought it back, and an employee comes up to my window, I asked "Is Danny around?" he said yes he's right over there, and pointed at some guy. I parked my truck, got inside and yet again asked for Danny. I was told "oh Dannys not here today". Then I spoke with Dave, who was COMPLETELY uninterested. He told me that he was very sorry but he couldnt do anything for me. Now I am stuck with a broken jet ski that I can not afford to fix. Had to pay them another $1000 in fees that I did not even know about, and on top of all that, I still dont have my title (I owe them NOTHING, I paid in cash and I have reciepts). To conclude, I have never seen a worse run business, I knew more about the jet ski than his mechanic did.

Everyone that I met that worked there was completely uneducated, and really hard to communicate with (cursing, sitting around smoking cigarettes...etc). Don't waste your money, nor your time there. You will lose, just like I did. These guys are a perfect example of why people don't help others anymore, cause there afraid they will get burned. That's exactly what these guys do, they take advantage of people who are down on there luck, they take what little money they have left and sell them something that is not what it was supposed to be. I would never buy a car there, but if you find your self buying one from them, go educated, and read there paperwork, it does not say what you might think it does.

I understand that you are only 19 yrs old so it explains partially why you did not do your consumer due diligence on the vehicle. The one thing you did that was right was insist on seeing that the vehicle was there before giving the funds. But the rest of the transaction shows your lack of experience.

First, never, never, NEVER trust any sales rep at any vehicle dealership for any reason. Never sign documents without reading them. It is most likely you agreed to purchase the jet ski AS IS because that is the standard for purchasing used vehicles - unless you paid for a warranty. Even then, the warranty can just be another rip off if you don't read the actual terms of the warranty.  Even if you disagree with my post - please remember that car dealers are rewarded for lying (rewarded with the sale). That is why the number one rule is to do your due diligence before you buy.

Second, never pay 'green cash' for your purchase. You need something to show that you actually made a payment or paid in full for the purchase. A receipt helps, but a canceled check is better. If the dealer won't accept your check, then get a cashiers check. If they don't want a cashiers check, walk away from the transaction because you are being set up.

Don't give any money until you have read every word of the contract yourself. Do NOT expect the sales rep to read it to you accurately. Never sign your name without having read the contact yourself and having a complete understanding of the agreement with all the terms put in the contract. If the finance or sales rep gets antsy, then walk away from the deal.

Third, always have your vehicle inspected by a third party mechanic prior to purchase. Someone that is knowledgeable and will tell you the truth about the vehicle condition PRIOR to purchase. If you can't do that, don't buy it.

This is your remedy:  send a certified letter return receipt request to the dealer outlining the issue and what you want from the dealer (repair of jet ski or refund of money in exchange for the jet ski). If he doesn't comply within X days (you set the time in your letter), take the dealer to small claims court with all of your evidence. Sounds like there was misrepresentation in the sale based on your post. Make sure you can prove your claims for fraud and misrepresentation or you are wasting your time. Good luck.

Generally when your buying something from a dealership you tend to trust the person that you asked to explain what you are signing and they say it's nothing... And no, I apparently did not get a warranty, even though the sign out front of Foreman Motors says "all vehicles warranted". And Jim, it seems with your fast response to my post that you represent foreman motors, so I'm guessing they've hired you to defend them with all the negative posts made about them. Your name is on every single post made about foreman motors... We all know what that means.

Did YOU read and understand the papers you were signing?  When you said you had to ask that person what they were, then we all know the answer to that.  Did you get a warranty?
