Shakopee Chevrolet Same Misleading, Dishonest, High Pressure Tactics Other Complainants Found Shakopee Minnesota
On 3/15/14 I went with my daughter to look at a car she was interested in that Shakopee Chevrolet had advertised on the Internet. The sales person at first tried to make friends with her and told us how much he wanted her treated like his own daughter. He also told us they were a 1-Price Store. The used car was listed for $13,900. They then low-balled my daughters car for trade at $2200. When we got up to leave, the salesperson said what price were you thinking of. I told him our bottom line after trade was $10,000. He told us to sit tight and he would see what he could do. I should have been suspicious riight then because at first he told us they were a 1-price store. Miraculously in a few minutes he came back and said we had a deal. He alledged they were making an exception because they supposedly had several buyers for my daughters trade.
When we got down to do the paperwork, we asked to see the report they alledgedly had from their inspection of the car my daughter was purchasing, that they said had been inspected from head to toe. Suspiciously, they claimed they could not find it. I then told the salesperson, we would grab a bite for lunch and I would talk it over with my daughter in private. The dealership unbelievably stalled and gave us a hard time giving my daughter back her drivers license and keys to her car they were holding. When I demanded these 2 items back from them immediately, the salesperson and his manager then pulled the old they had another buyer for the vehicle and if we left the dealership without signing the papers my daughter would lose the vehicle. Very suspicious since there was only 1 couple in the dealership other than us, and I overheard them talking to their salesperson about a new truck!
Once at lunch, we pulled up reviews and complaints about Shakopee Chevrolet on the Internet. Not surprisingly, we see a slew of similar complaints and experiences against this dealership that we witnessed. Evidently, where there is smoke there is fire--and this heavy-handed and dishonest tactics by this dealership is their motis-operendi. Unsurprisingly, the salesperson has contacted my daughter several times about the vehicle (what a surprise--the imaginary buyer did not buy it yet) and even 4 days later have never provided this supposed inspection report for the vehicle they were using as a sales tool.
