I am from badbusinessbureau.com reporting on what I feel is a bad and deceptive car deal.
I was talking to a very nice man the other day about his nice new shinny Toyota 4 door Tacoma truck. The truck was so nice and very roomy for a family. The truck has EVERYTHING a man could want. You know the V 6, AC, Auto trans, Power windows, ..this truck has it all. The man showed me the MSRP sticker that the car dealer never removed from the truck. The MSRP had a sticker price of $22,807.00
This window sticker was put on the truck by Toyota Motor Corp. I thought that that was a good price for what this truck had to offer. Then Camelback Toyota of Phoenix, AZ must have thought that $22,807.00 was not enough money, so they added what the auto industry calls an Addendum sticker, where they stick it to the customer.
This addendum sticker added $2,476.00 to the Toyota sticker price. In other words, they, Camelback Toyota charged this car buyer $279 for what they call Perma Plate, what ever the hell that was, and the truck buyer was never told what it was either. They charged him $1,499.00 for what they called Protection Moldings & pinstripe They charged him $299.00 for what they called the Deluxe window tint. They charged him another $399.00 for a plastic cheap bed liner.
(these stickers have all types of spelling errors and they use words that do not exists)
This was all bogus charges in our opinion, they added to jack the price from $22,807.00 to $25,283.00. To all car buyers, Please to not look at the car dealer's addendum sticker when you go to buy a new car. I tell consumers, do not negotiate on the sticker price, work from the dealers factory invoice and the rebate report.
In my opinion, the company that provides these stickers to the dealers, prints these fraudulent addendum stickers to help car dealers take more of your hard earned money, taking advantage of you. Every new car buyer should tell the dealer that you will not pay sticker for any car they want to sell you, much less over sticker!
Camelback Toyota has a local company called Compusight Inc. in Phoenix, AZ, that works out of their home with various dealers and prints up these stickers so that they appear to be form the Toyota manufacture.
Also, please understand, that new and used car dealers hire companies to come in and train their sales and finance staff on how to take as much as they can when you buy a car or truck. These car sales trainers go to car dealers across the country and have big boot camps on how to stay off the price and get car buyers to fall in love with the car first. They want you to be a payment buyer so they can keep you away from the invoice and the rebate reports. Keeping you focused on the payment that you can afford, rather than the actual cost of the vehicle.
All new and used car dealers love to find new deceptive ways to take your hard earned money. Ever wonder who trains car sales men and women to become TAKERS? I say WATCH EVERY MOVE THEY MAKE. Most car makers do not care what car dealers do to you, because they have already got their money as soon as the dealer gets the cars on their lot. The auto manufactures toll free 800 customer service numbers are nothing more than a delay tactic to not help the consumer, which in most cases, you complaint ends up no where. Customer service representatives will just send you back to the dealer in most cases so you can just get screwed again. This tactic allows more time to go by making it harder for you to get anything resolved, tiring you out so you just go away.
Keep an open eye on everything they do and make sure you get everything you want IN WRITING !!!!!! If what you want is not in writing do NOT BUY UNTIL IT IS.
