I too responded to an advertisement placed by midway chevrolet only to find that like all of the AGI dealerships operated by Larry VanTyul and family, this one believes in deceptive advertisements to get the customer into their store. the Automotive Group Inc, aka larry VanTyul, operates many dealerships in the phoenix metropolitan area some of which are, Van Chevrolet, Showcase Mazda, Showcase Pontiac/GMC, Camelback Toyota, ABC Nissan, Pinnacle Nissan, Midway Nisan, Scottsdale Nissan, and all of the Infinity stores in Phoenix and Scottsdale Arizona and all of these stores use very high pressure sales tactics and very deceptive advertising.

One of the most common control tactics they use to keep you on the property is they ask for and then lose your drivers license or your car keys. They managed to keep me on the lot for about an hour by losing my drivers license which they said they needed a photo copy of. Buying a car is no longer a pleasant experience and the AGI stores really make it difficult.

Hey Rg here is my 2 cents - why do so many local car dealers wind up in court wih their customers?

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

Go to the below url aand use the "Search by Business Name" Box and type in the name of a car dealer that comes to your mind. Then hit search and see how many pages of law suits that will pop up!

You have to ask yourself why do so many local car dealers wind up in court wih their customers?

Can't say who was right or wrong with what you find, but I can say I believe that NONE of the following Tv stations will do stories on car dealer scams. 3TV, TV5, TV10 TV12 TV15

Car buyers are not informed of current car dealer scams because the MEDIA likes to look the other way, The money that comes from many car dealers is way more important then protecting their viewers.


If car buyers went to the above URL FIRST before going to the car dealer of their choice to buy a car. If a car dealer has MANY LAW SUITS one needs to do some serious thinking as to which car dealer to buy a car from.

My big anger is with many in the media that are to be reporting news to PROTECT YOU from scams look the other way when it comes to car dealers.

Go to any local TV station and local talk radio/ NEWS station such as KFYI 550 AM and other so called NEWS STATIONS will never do any reporting on car dealers.

I believe because they LOVE the BIG money they get from the very car dealers that RIP OFF their listeners. Many radio and TV stations want you to listen to them or watch their TV station, but when it comes to protecting you by reporting stories on scummy car dealers, THEY LOOK THE OTHER WAY, and say it's NOT NEWS YOU CAN USE!

TV 15 a local ABC station will go after small restaurants that are reported as being durty. But bring them some true trusting info about a local car dealer scam and NO WAY!

You have to think the way I do. I feel that if a car dealer ripped you off, the Rip OFF started with the Medai who got your attention to go to that rip Off car dealer. THE MEDIA!

If a local TV station or radio station got you excited and ready to RUN to a car dealer and you get Ripped OFF. You can thank the media for helping the deceptive car dealer find VICTIMS or PREY to Rip OFF!

If I was ripped off by a car dealer, I would post the name of the Radio station that ran the deceptive commercial.

Maybe if the Radios or TV stations get listed in the Rip Off Reports, maybe they would start refusing to air some of the DECEPTIVE commercials that the dirty car dealers want to pay them BIG MONEY to air.

If not for the media, car dealers would have a MUCH harder time finding PREY to make them into VICTIMS.

Want to see if what I am saying is true? Go listen to Bruce Jacobs at 550 KFYI AM try to get him to talk about car dealer cams. He is on Monday -Friday from 5 AM to 8 AM. Call him up at 602-260-5394 and see just how fast Andrew Babenski parks your call in the trash can!

Trust me many car buyers are getting Ripped OFF because many in the medai LOOK THE OTHER WAY!

Tracy if you or anybody else wants to put some of the local media to the "NEWS TEST" post a request and I will post all of their contact info for you to PUT THEM TO THE Car dealer NEWS TEST!

I believe that the BIG advertising money many get from car dealers and car makers are MUCH MORE IMPORTANT then PROTECTING you from their scams!

Trust me I can PROVE my point about the media!
