Maxwell Ford worst bunch of liars EVER austin Texas
Myself like others were drawn in by a special I saw on their website...I emailed Internet sales and went as far as submitting my credit app online prior to going in to ensure there wouldn't be any issues. I get there and test drive the truck and LOVE it! At this point I know I am going to have to give up $1500 of the discount due to the fact that I was not trading a car in. I knew this amount cause it clearly stated on their company website that there was a $1500 rebate for trading a car in and the standard fine print said NOTHING but info on the age and who owned and when you owned the trade in and bla bla bla....BUT nothing that stated that not trading a car in would result in you losing an additional 2500 that no one, not even the joke of a general sales manager could explain.
Moving on...my sales guys then informs me of a truck that would drive and ride the same but would be missing some of the perks on the inside. I agree cause I was trying to get a payment under $600 a month. So he shows me a truck that is locked in a sea of other trucks. So I take his word. MISTAKE NUMBER 1.
So we go back in and he says fiance will be ready for me in 30 mins...almost 2 hours go by. I finally sit down to start signing my life away and one of the first things I have to sign is something called a payment menu. They don't give you a copy to take with you...the reason being is this is were they make up any money they took off the car. The finance guy starts off telling that the bank approved me as long as I take out gap ins and a $2500 extended warranty.
Sounded odd to me but at this hour I am unable to call the bank to verify this. Then goes over the FOUR different payment options. Here's the thing...there are actually FIVE. The fifth one being the one that screws them out of sticking a bunch of money on the back end to make up for any discount they promised you. I took a picture of mine. if you would like to know how they screw you and would like to see this payment menu...get in touch with me. So MISTAKE NUMBER 2. I trust in what this joker was telling me.
I leave and I only live a few mins from the dealership. The next day is the first time I actually get to see how the truck drives and I realize it drives nothing like I was told it would. I call my sales person and he proceeds to tell me that the other truck I was looking at cost 15000 more and why would I think it would drive the same. First off...the msrp of the 2 trucks are only off by less then 3000. I make an appt to come in the next morning.
I then proceed to call the credit union that approved my loan and am almost laughed off the phone at the notion they required anything to issue the loan. Now I am pissed and call back my sales person and of course...he's just sales. So the next morning I go in and ask for the Finance Manager and sit down and tell him that I am not happy about being lied to about both the way my truck would ride and the 3000 lie about what the bank required. I have to say this is were any normal human being in any sort of sales driven field would have had the smarts to try and make the customer happy. NOPE not this waste of a person. at no point has anyone ever said that they were sorry.
Not about the lie about my bank...not about the fact that even though they were refunding the 3000 it did nothing to lower my payment back to what it should have been. Which btw I am currently stuck with a payment 50 bucks higher now . That's almost 5000 more in payments over the life of the loan. Means nothing to them. At one point the finance manager says "what, you want out of your deal or something" I say yes. He then leaves to go get what I thought was the general manager...turns out that complete waste of a person was just the sales manager. UGH!!! Dude tap dances on my last nerve cause he doesn't have an answer for anything. You would think as the sales manager he would know off the top of his head where every cents of any special that was posted on the companies website would come from, was attached to ect. Not this winner.
I leave and after talking to multiple other dealership who were all shocked at what they were hearing and the first thing everything single one of them says is "THAT'S AGAINST THE LAW" So I decided I will take them up on their offer to get out of this deal. I call back and wouldn't you know it they aren't going to let me out. I again ask for the GENERAL MANAGER and who calls me back...the little P.O.S. General Sales Manager who again has never bothered to say they were sorry about anything. Never giving a second thought to customer service and says he has a signed contract. and to contact my lender. Hmmm....did the bank cause this...no. Did I cause this...no. Just the liars at MAXWELL FORD. Ford corp was shocked he hear about this....as will be the The Office of Consumer Credit Commissioner. Can't wait to show them the payment menu. I have already been able to locate other victims. Shop (((competitor's name redacted))). They know Honesty!
