Unicars Honda Trade in stolen Indio California
Leased a nice, new CR-V. A very nice car. Brought a 1999 Jeep Wrangler Sport 4x4 Auto, 6Cyl, Air, Tilt, Cruise, Hard Top, etc. with me as a trade. KBB said it's worth at least $6500.
I should have been more alert. They exuded such... honesty. Unfortunately, it was all a ruse. After the contract was signed, for a little more money than I was really comfortable with, and I got home, I happened to check the documents for payment details on the lease.
Then I noticed. They took my Jeep, and valued it at $2500. Minimum KBB for a rusted out, leaky piece of junk was $6500, and it was definitely NOT THAT. No leaks. Fresh brakes and shocks. Not the most beautiful around the plastic and trim, but the metal was all solid and paint was good.
They basically paid out the basic lease starting fees and pocketed the difference for themselves.
I'm so disappointed and angry, not only at them, but at myself for letting them slip that into the contract and not spotting it. Like a perfectly choreographed dance of distractions. Now the whole thing just keeps replaying through my head, as I lose sleep getting angrier about it.
And so I'm out about $4000, give or take, even giving them the benefit of the doubt. I know that valuation is subjective, but it was certainly not a completely worn out piece of crap, as a $2500 valuation would imply. EVERYTHING worked. NO LEAKS. No body damage. They just robbed me, and I signed the paper and let them do it.
So I don't really care about 'fixing' this. Legally, I'm boned. So I'm just making sure that every single review site tells the story. It's more important that other people know about this.
