Scott Clark's Toyota Dishonest business practices, deceptive, unscrupulous Matthews North Carolina
I went to this dealer to buy a specific car, however I was steered into another car that was cheaper and told was comparable. It was not. I was sold an extended warranty and then lied to about the terms and how it would be financed. Long story short, they took the money I would have paid for a quality car and coerced me into buying one that is not for essentially the same price. A little more all said and done actually. I had no idea that the extra cost would be financed because I was shown one amount and then another actually ended up going to the bank. After complaining, this dealer's idea to "make things right" for me was to try to convince me to go upside down on my loan and buy a more expensive car from them. This was after they admitted to poor business practice and apologized profusely (I went through three reps, all of which claiming they would have never let what happened happen on their watch). When I wouldn't go along with their plan I was told how foolish I was for buying the car I bought in the first place, the one THEY sold to me a couple weeks earlier. This was after several people came out and made it sound like they would refund the money on my warranties but if I wanted they would swap the car out for the same bloated price of my current non-quality car + extended warranties. This was to keep me busy by showing me "special" cars so everyone else could quietly sneak out and go home. That way when I didn't bite they could say "Well hey, were closed now so there's nothing else we can do". The reason it took so long for me to realize the amount they financed for me was because I didn't get my paperwork for three weeks, then their bank(PNC) told me they didn't service the loan themselves and instead outsourced it. I was given a website that was invalid to get my info, then eventually found something by searching for individual parts of the bogus web address on Google. Imagine my surprise when I finally got to see the total amount financed. All I got prior to this was payment coupons in the mail with my monthly fee amount but no total cost. This dealer was dishonest, and then when I called them out on it they wasted my time and tried to double dip on the shady business practices. I will never do business with them again, and its a shame that this dealer has gone as far downhill as they have because I have bought cars from them in the past and had no issues. I would avoid, but if you must shop there be very careful and don't trust anyone no matter what they tell you.
