Complaint Review: Skyline Motors
Skyline Motors Illegal automobile sale, sold without brake pads, la Mesa California
*Author of original report: Follow-up to Skyline Motors
*UPDATE Employee: This customer tried to extort the dealership with fabricated state codes
The remains of the vehicle I purchased from Skyline Motors was in an accident that left it totalled. That would be bad enough; however it is currently in a police hold because the car is reported actively stolen. Skyline Motors might have sold me a vehicle that never was legally allowed to be sold. It is now part of a multi-state police investigation.
From day three of my buying experience with the family-run team at Skyline, things went very badly. Prior to buying the vehicle, I asked what type of vehicle inspection was done. I was told the vehicle was inspected by their expert mechanics and the brakes were completely checked.
On day 3, I was driving my girlfriend's 5 year old son to school when I applied the brakes and nothing happened. I slid into oncoming traffic and narrely avoided a head-on collision. I was able to get to a nearby repair shop where I was informed that there were no brake pads on the front tires! How could this car be sold to me without brake pads and how could the sales team lie to me about the vehicle evaluation?
I contacted Skyline and informed them about the brakes and the close call accident involving a child and was informed that "all sales were final" and "it was my problem to fix."
Later, I came to discover that Skyline Motors also had me pay the previous year of registration fees prior to ever owning the vehicle. One illegal action after the next. This is a company that people should stear clear of! I hope others who have had similar experiences with Skyline Motors will share their stories on the above website. The vehicle I purchased should never have been sold to me and there could be many other similar vehicles on their lot. BE WARNED! I also am unable to collect on insurance money owed to me bacause the vehicle is considered stolen. How can this even be allowed?
