Purchased a new vehicle and during the warranty period the engine failed during warranty--which was due to failure of their Service Dept to correct the issue despite having brought it to them several times to do so. They literally sent the vehicle back out Without OIL on 3 occasions leading to engine failure.

We ended up having to pay $3000 to get a new engine--which was also faulty--and while they still had the vehicle in their possesion for further repairs--and then they literally tricked my elderly wife and mother-in-law into buying a new car--and added $20,000 to the new vehicle cost to pay for the vehicle they never fixed--and then they sold it to make more prfit, leaving us $38,000 in debt..

These people lied and altered service records and sales contracts.

Your response is nonsensical. It is unclear as to why you evaded my questions.

New vehicles include a manufacturer’s warranty so why was a warranty purchased for a new vehicle?

It was my wife-- a WOMAN--and if she was going to do it herself wh in the why would she have purchased a warranty and why take it to the Dealership Serice Dept. Wow, are you 12 years old?  would she take it to the dealership three times for CHECK ENGINE LIGHT and smoke coming from exhuast. You have no common sense...

A Few Questions

AUTHOR: coast - ()

POSTED: Saturday, January 12, 2019

When you received the vehicle without oil from their service department did the low oil pressure or any other dashboard warning lights illuminate? Did you hear grinding noises while running the vehicle without oil? Are you aware that an engine without oil can operate only a few miles and then will quickly seize? After receiving the vehicle back from their service department without oil (at least after the first one or two times) it would seem that you would have immediately checked the oil level before driving it.

How was the dealer able to add $20K to the price of the vehicle without the buyer seeing that in the sales agreement? Is it your claim that the dealer altered the sales agreement after the buyer signed it? It would be easy to prove a sales contract was altered by presenting the buyer’s copy of the contract.

 You stated they returned the car THREE times without oil. Did YOU even check YOUR own oil after the car was returned??? You also alleged they altered sales contracts. If they did, why did YOU agree to pay the allegedly altered price? Let me guess...since you don't have the COMMON SENSE to even check your own oil, you didn't even bother to READ the sales contract BEFORE you signed it! Age is not an excuse or sympathy card
