Hunterdon Auto Ernie Andrascik Sleazy Car Salesmen Will Make Your Life Hell! Lebanon New Jersey
*REBUTTAL Individual responds: Unfounded accusations of sleaze
I am a twenty year old who has been looking for some time for the perfect used 350z. I finally find it in the perfect color, price, miles, and transmission. I contact this dealership and speak to an "Ernie Andrascik" on a Tuesday, telling him I am very interested and I ask him to email me some more information.
This is when I notice from the VIN that the vehicle had been in an accident that they did not mention, but Ernie assures me it was nothing to worry about when I call back the next day. Then later I get a phone call that apparently the 350z has had a customer put a depost on it. I tell him, oh well that's a shame I'll look elsewhere.
I get a call Friday at 5:00pm. It's Ernie and he says, "Hey, so I just found out nothing is happening with that 350z, apparently another salesmen lied about the deposit to hide the car." That sounded a little shady. but I thought this was perfect. I tell him I will be there tomorrow morning with cash in hand, and this is a 2 hour drive for me and he is aware of this. He tells me to just call in the morning.
The next morning I call and speak to someone at the front desk, they mention Ernie isn't in yet and that he would give me a call at 9:00 when he was in, Then I go to the bank, clear it with them, call the insurance company and get the green light there. I start making my was on the 2 hour drive to the dealership. An hour into the drive I notice that Ernie has not called me back despite it being 10:00am now. I call up and he tells me that a customer is finalizing the deal at the moment and the car is no longer for sale. Meanwhile he was WELL AWARE I was coming to buy that car from two hours away. I exchange some profanities with him and make the now hour trip back home.
10 minutes after I get home I get a call back from this dealership from the manager. He explains he is sorry and If I want the car it's mine. Obviously this is a bunch of crap and what really happened was that the other customer obviously didn't end up getting the car for some reason. I then also find out a slew of other problems with the car that they neglected to ever mention to me and that they were only offering a 30 day warrenty. They ran me in circles for a car they new was a trash pile and when they couldn't pawn it off on the guy who was closer they had the audacity to try and ask me to come crawling back there to take it off their hands.
This is the SLEAZIEST business I have ever come in contact with. STAY AWAY
