In 2016 I bought a 2011 Escalade with 53,111 miles on it from Thomas Nissan of Joliet IL. Well here it is three years later, the car had only around 93,000 miles on it, I still owe $20,650.00 on it, and now the engine has collapsed lifters and bad camshaft, so basically it needs a new engine .
There was a power train warranty that expired on 11/2/2019 and the engine problem started on 12/13/2019. When I was buying the vehicle I asked the salesman about the sound of the engine because I thought I could hear a slight ticking noise. I asked him if they could have it checked out.
So instead of saying okay, he says “oh, those engines are like that” so I fell for it. They told me that the only thing that was wrong with the vehicle is that the touch screen for the stereo/navigation system only works sometimes. So they knew about the touch screen not working all the time, but not the major engine problem, I don't believe that.
I put up a review on Yelp.com about my situation a couple of weeks ago, three hours later after I put it up Alex from Thomas Nissan calls me asking me to take down the review (which I did) saying that they were going to help me out somehow.
Well I fell for that too because two weeks later they tell me that the best he can do is replace the engine for about $7,000.00 or trade it in on a new car and use the rebates to offset the $20,650.00 I still owe on the Escalade. Now how is that helping me out? That's crazy!
So that was just a ploy to get me to delete my review, if that's not low, I don't know what is. I'm 62 years old disable Vet and I need a car to get to my medical appointments at the VA hospital which is twenty-five miles away. This has been devastating, I can't believe that a business can just lie and deceive someone like that just to sell a car, ruin their life and think nothing of it.
Then on top of that they tricked me into deleting my review by telling me another lie. If I didn't fall for their lies and not buy this Escalade then someone else would have, so I think that Thomas Nissan's way of selling cars is definitely not in the best interest of their customers.
I had a feeling that there might have been a problem with this vehicle and I'm not even a mechanic, but I was assured by the salesperson that “oh, those engines are like that. I think that leaving someone $20,650.00 in debt on a car that doesn't even run is not right.
