Wholesale Direct in a RIPOFF. I'm 19 years old, with one part time job. I finally saved up some money enough to trade in my junk car and have a nice, dependable car. And their prices we're in my range. So i stopped by and fell in love with this jeep. looked great, drove great, no problems with itthe next day i took it to get a tune up and an oil change, just because there's no history on the cars so i have no idea when it was last done. Not even 30 days after i bought the vechicle, the check engine light came back on and the code was for a misfire. SO my first assumption was the guys didn't do their job correctly with the tune-up.
So i took it back. they did all these tests, and told me they thnk the head gaskets needed to be replaced, and the ball joint on the passenger side needed to be replaced as well. My first thought was that the car drives almost perfectly, that can't be it. [continued below]....
but he said there is NO way the dealership did not tknow this was a problem with the car. they sold me a lemon car for $4,745. Now I can't drive this new car i bought for 3-4 months, didn't even have it for a month, so i can save up and put a new engine it in which will cost $3000-$4000. I called wholesale direct back within the 30 days after i purchased hoping there is somehting they can do. All i want them to do is FIX IT because i love this car. and i want THEM to pay for the shitty car they sold me!! But speaking with don ficken, the one who sold me the car, instead of working somehting out with me,
he blamed the over-heating on me and said the only thing he can do is have his mechanic replace the engine for $2,100. and i'm responsible for paying for the damages. but he told me how sorry he was for me. and ofcourse i don't want his mechanic to do it because of the situation, and i don't trust them anymore, he could easily mess something else up and make me pay for that too. I told him i'd be contacting the beter business bureau, and noe the ripoff report website. These are horrible people, and they take advantage of anyone that comes in! DO NOT GO TO WHOLESALE DIRECT!!!
