Fenton Michigan
We went to buy a 2011 Cadillac and decided on a Lincoln MKS loaded at great price. Deal written up conditional on them fixing cracked window AND most important a Carfax report, they had Auto Check though.
They said computer problem and couldn't print but said checked and it was one owner, no accidents and clean report all the way. We were suspicious as only vehicle on their website when looking at it online day before that did not have a clickable autocheck you could look at. We were determined but 3 employees said same thing and lied about the atuo check. We didn't even know it but had tent sale and the supervisor that lied to us
(over the salesman) was from some outside company they hired to oversee the tent sale, second was the salesman (now fired as put the blame of course on young man been there a month), and the business manager who handled the paperwork. All told us one owner, clean, no accidents and all 3 promised us the autocheck report before delivery. Was to come back in 2 days to pick up as they were nearly 3 hours away from us and couldn't come next day. But they gave us a Cadillac loaner as they didn't want any more miles on our 2004 Cadillac we were trading with $58,600 miles on it (anyone need one - ha!). This was to be cash sale withagreed that our check would not be cashed and deal done until delivery approval and that auto check.
To give you the summation -
Went to get car and none of things promised such as windshield fixed and they tried to give us fake
autocheck which we caught. The real auto check after much and many hours of arguing showed major
front end collision damage with police report. Found they had the car a year. Told us had 40,000 and a few miles on it and had nearly 49,000. Told us had a 4 year, 60,000 Lincoln warranty on it and had a 4 year, 50,000 one which was up in about 1400 miles.
They would not give us our car back, made us keep the loaner and tried to force us to take that car. Said would not give us our car or money back. Then said would find us another with same or less miles and no accidents, clean title history all the way. We had no choice as had our car and our money $24,000. Went back 4 more times trying to get our car, tried to sell us another for $4,000 more, then $4600 more. It just went on and on.
Even told us they sold our car, we went to lot (all this time driving nearly 3 hours each way) and no car. Well they didn't sell it and finally held it for ransom/blackmail and told us they were sending that wrecked suto check vehicle they frauded us on with misrepresentation we never took delivery on into the State to title to us unless we paid them $2300 to get our own car back and had 4 1/2 hours to do it or would be overnighted.
We paid the ransom. But on way to pay ransom we stopped by Office Max and faxed summary and more to the Attorney General's Office with Complaint (cost us $38.00 at Office Max but worth it). This was
at about 4:30 p.m., by noon the next the Great State of Michigan (new residents) called us and were on top of this and said didn't know anything like this could happen since the 70's and 80's.
People involved was the General Manager (not sure of name), Tony Deck, Sales Manager at Fenton, Suski Used Cars (not including the 3 others who lied and misrepresented the auto check. The owner, can't remember name but in this and called us and wow what an ego this jerk had and finally the lord of the blackmail and ransom holder is what he calls himself as the Oprations Manager at the Suski Used Cars in Flint, Mr. Frederick M. Lynch and one who took the ransom money and had our vehicle hidden when told us it was sold.
We now have our vehicle back, on paper (tax evasion) they said gave us $1,000 for it, then why did we pay a $2300 ransom to get our own vehicle back that was in better condition then most any vehicle on their lot even if a Cadillac 2004 STS, it was taken care of with $58,600 miles on it.
They just thought they could get away with taking advantage of 2 totally disabled senior citizens. We made 4 of the narly 3 1/2 hour each way trips to Fenton trying to get our vehicle back while they tried to make us take the original vehicle (had signed letter it was loaner, etc. as gets complicated but clear we were covered that never took possession) that was a fixed wreck and then the drive to Flint (2 1/2 hours each way) a 5th time to pay the ransom to get our own car back and finally get $21,700 of our $24,000 we gave them back.
Please, anyone with a complaint against this company contact the State of Michigan Attorney General's Office and file complaint and fax it in as they are working on our case right now. As new Michigan residents it is nice someone with the State is trying to help. We may never get our ransom of $2300 back but I hope the State does something to stop these blackmailers (all provable).
Do not buy from these people and spread the word. It was the most shocking experience and still ongoing for us as now we have less funds to buy a vehicle with as well.
