During the 1st week of April, 2009, I contacted a sales associate at Atlanta Auto Lease. This was in regard to a 2007 Honda Accord located on Autotrader.com. The car was being sold with a little over 14,000 miles. Friendly salesperson reassured me that the car had never been in an accident and was in perfect mechanical shape. Over 1 month later I was still waiting for the car to be delivered to NY (my home residence). I was then told to contact "Kash" - owner/manager. I attempted to explain the following issues with Kash about the car Problems with vehicle: 1. it wouldn't start - very hesitant. 2. It appeared that car had been in an accident. Car Fax report came up clean but there was definately an issue (Today, May 26, 2009, I ran the vehicles VIN # through Autocheck and found that it had Major Title problems and AUCTION ANNOUNCED AS UNIBODY DAMAGE. Upon learning of this information, I tried to call Kash. When I said who I was he hung up on me. I called back, left a message and asked that he please call me back - he never did. 3. passengers side window doesn't go up. 4. bottom of glove compartment box came to me lying on the passengers side seat. 5. The car arrived with more than 2000 extra miles on it. 6. Remote for door and trunk entry didn't come with the car as promised. I contacted Igor who said he ordered one and would send it to me - to date - i haven't received it (along with car manual that wasn't in car). 6. Car Idles roughly. 7. It appears that passenger side air bag has been deployed. Atlanta Auto lease sold me a car that has major unibody damage and never disclosed this information. Atlanta Auto lease sold me a car that was quite different (AND DANGEROUS!) from what they advertised.
BOTTOM LINE: This guy falsely advertised a car claiming that there was no body damage or any other issues! After receiving the car with alot of issues that were never advertised (along with unibody damage!) I attempted to call Kash and was hung up on (wonder why???). His practice is to misrepresent cars, take the buyers money, deliver the car 35 days later (which bails him out of his lousy 30 day policy and gives him an "out" when he is confronted by the unhappy seller about the misrepresentation and danger of vehicle!) He then tries to cover himself by presenting a report that his salesperson asked you to sign (sold as is - but not to worry - all will be well, no problems with car, just sign and fax right back - this is just company policy!) Yeah right, see if i'll ever fall into that trap again and expect the salesperson to stand up to his words when Mr. Kash becomes involved and doesn't want to deal with his dirty practices! This guy knows the ropes.....just hope no one else get hung fraudulant practices...Am now stuck with a car that I can't sell (well wouldn't sell because some of us do have consciouses!) because of it's condition....Must say...aside from scratches, no Honda emblem on front, etc...is pretty to look at!! I guess that's what initially attracted me and got me sucked into the web!!
Another frustrated buyer!
