Complaint Description:
Car was supposed to be inspected. Sexual harassment from salesman. Sales person brushed his arm several times on my wife's shirt right in front of me WILDE HONDA OF SARASOTA Car purchase on 10/23/2013 Salesman took us for a very limited test drive on a car that was similar to the one we ended up purchasing and declared our car was in perfect condition having been traded by an elderly lady. My wife and I were pleased in the new car even though it was $6,000.00 more than we had budgeted for. After all it was better than the one we test drove.

After the paperwork the salesman came to show us how the dials worked. My wife was on the drivers seat since this was her car . The sales man leaned inappropriately touching my wife's chest while he pretended to show us the various functions. She told him to move back and I tactfully pushed him away. He later got to the passenger side and proceeded to show us some more working while brushing my wife's chest. [continued below]....

..... I was so furious at this time and did not know what to do. I looked at the tires and demanded they are changed because they were almost bald.

The sales man refused at which point I told my wife we would go elsewhere. In came the used car manager and he also refused to make changes. At the point we were walking out he said he would pay for 2 tires and was responsible for the rest. He was ver rude and aloof. He said the car was completely safe even though the car need new tires, rotors shaved, break light, alignment and wheel balancing. He said he was doing us a favor even though he and his salesman had previously said the car was safe. I told the manager about his groping salesperson and he said he does not believe me.

My wife felt humiliated and sad. This is taboo to insult a woman with such actions and a manager standing for his cohort with his arms crossed and calling her a liar. We were sold a car that we have had to go to the dealer several times to have it fixed. The only person who was kind and professional to us was the Finance manager. If it weren't for him, we would never have made the purchase. The whole experience was horrible and would advice anybody thinking about a car to never step into WILDE HONDA OF SARASOTA. "Unless you want to be taken for a ride"

Tire problem finally resolved after I showed them the evidence of a hand written note by the service manager stating a much lower quote than the new one being offered by more than $300.00!????.

Used sales manager agreed to just talk to his minion in regards to such a hanious act as sexual harrassment. Very aloof and rude still. He resolved the cost of the tires. The worst act against my wife still remain. Where do men get that they can treat women like objects and minimise the tormants they go through?

Oh It Was So, So Humililiating, Right???

AUTHOR: Jim - ()

It was so-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o terrible that you and your wife were treated so poorly at this dealership...RIGHT?  It was so-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o bad that YOU rewarded them for treating you and her that way...by GIVING THEM THE PROFIT! 

Perhaps your wife would be better off buying her next car when she has a real man with a backbone with her...a man who would have walked out rather than a damned doormat who will end up REWARDING them as if they are the only dealership on the face of the earth!

Wow! This guy has me figured out

AUTHOR: Pissed - ()

It is almost like he was at the scene or an employee of the dealership itself. Hmm I can think of afew of characters and to insinuate my wife has done this before. Actually willed another man to harass her. 

As to my manlyhood the last I checked it is still attached and dont know why you feel you should comment about it because I am not a homosexual, nothing wrong if you are just mind your own privates.

Sock someone at a gas station? Who would believe my story? I happen to be a man of faith and we tend to seek before we leap. Something you should look into. I actually know exactly who you are and now I will seek legal justice and expose you.

I was happy having the dude disciplined by being fired but now I will file a charge against the dealership. Thanks for making my mind up for me. You are right a matter of this magnitude should not be handled lightly. I will be searching for legal representation and hense will keep mute and see what the cats drag in.

Are you sure??

AUTHOR: Tyg - ()

 Are you sure it was ACTUAL sexual harrasment? Your post sounds like youre just looking for something to complain about. Sometimes in close quarters, such as leaning in to a vehicle, "brushing" can happen. I dont buy that the gentleman was activly sexually harrasing your wife. I think your either intentionally reading more into the situation in order to bolster your "internet pity", or just looking for an excuse to be able to get something for nothing. Either way its not PROOF of intentional harrasment. With actual OVERT acts of sexual aggression.

Im willing to bet that you and your wife have had OTHER sexual harrasment incidents. And found it to be an excellent way to get what you want. Now I MAY be wrong. There is EVERY chance that Im 100% off base and I can admit that freely. But as someone who works in a sales job, no amount of "thrill" would be worth MY job given the economy. This just really sounds like your trying to embarass them into giving you your way. Well the jaded street works both ways anymore. The American conscammer is always looking to make others pay for something that is thier own responsability.

Given the nature and body of your post AND given that you purchased your car THAT DAY tells me that this post is more then likely fake as ANY REAL MAN would have socked the salesperson in the jaw for violating his woman. But you didnt do that. Nope. You bought a car. Instead of walking out and reporting it to the police, you bought a car. Instead of making a scene in the dealership so the police were called so you could have the "pervert" removed, you bought a car.

There were plenty of other dealerships around you im sure. Since you made the purchase even after they violated your wife, tells me that this is all BS on your end and you just hope to be given something for nothing by crying wolf. We as a public are now fully aware of ALL the tactics the American conscammer uses to get thier way.

Do you people EVEN READ what you post anymore? What you have done is given them PLENTY of Ammo to use against you in a defamation case. All they need is a court order to get your information from this website including your ISP.
