Today October 26, 2007 my daughter called me in Alaska from Sugarland because she had received a flyer from Bill Heard promising her $3000.00 as a downpayment if she will bring in her late 90's model car. Her car is not in the best of running conditions and Sugarland is approximately 40 + miles from her home. She is only 22 and my granddaughter is 3 months, last night her car would not start, she finally got it started and with no heat drove to Sugarland today because the sales rep told her they would put her in a new car based on the "flyer" they mailed to her just to lure her in. Needless to say, the denied her unless she had an additional 3000 dollars. She was not told any of this prior to driving the distance, she could have easily gone to a dealership closer to home without sitting in a cold car that may not start at a long distance away. I am too far to get there to help and I am disabled and cannot help.

I do feel that this Dealership is taking advantage of young people by making false promises to them just to get them on thier property, the GM would not come to the phone and I waited on hold for 30 minutes on 3 different calls. I have called some of my old friends there on the north side of Houston hoping they can locate my daughter and help her get back home. Bill Heard - what you did is deplorable and you should be ashamed of your shady tactics to attract young people and entrap individuals. Someone needs to stop them.

This Happens All the Time

AUTHOR: Karl - (U.S.A.)

I get advertisements in the mail all the time like this. "Tow it in, drag it in, $3000 for any trade etc etc.". Usually the small print says "on approved models" or something like that. The approved car has always just been sold. In all cases if you bring in a junker the $3,000 is tacked on the new car price. You should never beleive these ads. Next time, call the dealer and find out the price of the car you are considering or just drive over and say nothing about the $3,000 trade-in offer. Nobody is going to give you $3,000 for a junker and a dealership is in business -like any other business - to make a profit -the biggest it can. It is a shame that this has to be done through evasive tactics but beleiving that you will get $3,000 for a junker as well as a discount from MSRP is about as logical as beleiving a Nigerian bank official who wants to transfer 30 million into your bank account.

The Dealerships is at fault because your daughters car has no heat

AUTHOR: Faron - (U.S.A.)

First of all it wasn't cold in Houston on October 27. Number 2, if it was, its sure not the dealership's fault your dauyghter's heater didn't work. Number 3, you admitted the car she had was in the worst of shape. They are not going to give a 3000 trade-in on a clunker. You said it had no heat and would barely start. No scam

Lady, Pulleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeez!!!

it was sunny and about 85 degrees on October 27 in Houston

AUTHOR: John - (U.S.A.)

Did they offer her $3000 trade value once she got there? If she needed another $3000 downpayment, I dont think that issue had anything to do with their advertisement so much as her credit history.

In any case, I live in Dallas. It was sunny and warm on October 27, so I dont see how your daughter's lack of a car heater endangered her life. If she got there and they would not offer a $3000 trade value on her old car, then I suppose that would be a scam. If they did exactly what they advertised and she decided not to take their offer, or was declined by lenders, I really dont see how it was a scam.
