I wanted to buy a new Toyota Highlander. I had purchased six new Toyota's from Hanlees in Davis. I asked to speak with the sales manager. I was introduced to "JC", who said he was the new car sales manager and his assistant. We made a deal on the price of the new Highlander and after an inspection and drive around, an offer of $20,500 for my 2006 Avalon Limited trade in. "JC" initialed the agreement and I wrote a check for the deposit.

The new Highlander was ordered from Japan, and after six weeks, finally arrived. My wife and I went to pick it up. We sat down to sign the papers. I asked for "JC", but they said he wasn't "on duty". After a long time a new sales person came out with the papers. The trade-in value was now $16,000. I said I had made a deal with "JC" for $20,500! The new sales person said they had changed their policy, and they were now paying only the "auction value" for trade-ins.

We left with a bad taste in our throats. I sold the Avalon through an add in the Bee for $21,500 and have ordered a new Highlander from Maita in Sacramento.

TOYOTA CHRISTMAS SONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AUTHOR: Karl - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Tuesday, November 04, 2008
Please sing to the tune of- 'THE FIRST NOEL'

Here we go- 1, 2, 3

The first engine sludge
Watanabe did say
We must keep this real quiet
Or I'll lose all my pay.

All my pay will go away
If this ever gets out
Don't let customers scream
Tell them to never shout.

Engine sludge, engine sludge
Engine sludge, ENGINE SLUDGE
Pay off the Lawyers
And pay off the Judge.

End.

P.S. Watanabe (Katsuaki Watanabe) is the President of Toyota Corporation in Japan. You can also 'Google' this- SLUDGE POEM 2, and read it. It's about Katsuaki Watanabe and Toyota. Don't get SLUDGE POEM confused with SLUDGE POEM 2. SLUDGE POEM (you can 'Google' it!) was about Toyota's CEO in the USA. Two weeks after SLUDGE POEM was posted here at Ripoff Report on 8-23-2007, Jim Press, their CEO, QUIT his position and went to Chrysler!! He announced his resignation with Toyota on 9-6-2007. You can 'Google' this- JIM PRESS, and you'll find the Article regarding his RESIGNATION with Toyota on that date!!!!!!!!!!!

Look at what's happening at Chrysler now!!! They're COLLAPSING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

POWER TO THE PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Some NEW 'Toyota Christmas Songs' will be coming soon. Thank you.

Please spread these songs all over the WORLD-WIDE WEB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Don't forget to 'Google' this- ENGINE SLUDGE, and read all the Toyota complaints at the consumeraffairs website. Make sure to read all the 'Airbags' complaints too!! Then, 'Google' this- SUIT: DEFECT REPORTS ALTERED TOYOTA PLANT, and read the Whistleblower Lawsuit from last year in California! CONSPIRACY???????? Hmm???

Next time:"GET THE OFFER IN WRITING!"

AUTHOR: Helene - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Sunday, November 02, 2008
So a slippery car salesman made you an offer and you THOUGHT it was a done deal.

NOBODY TRUSTS A CAR SALESMAN --USED OR OTHERWISE.

The old guys, the honorable guys, are all but gone.

The "NEW ECONOMY" powered by yuppies, the same folks who concocted the NIGHTMARE ON WALL STREET, is running our economy now and you can't trust ANYBODY any more.

GET IT IN WRITING.

GET HIM TO SIGN AND DATE IT OTHERWISE HE WILL LOSE THE SALE.

DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH LIARS.

YOU DID THE RIGHT THING BY REFUSING TO DEAL WITH THE LYING SALESMAN WHO TRIED TO RIP YOU OFF!

URGENT WORLDWIDE UPDATE: Another 'TOYOTA CHRISTMAS SONG' has been....

AUTHOR: Karl - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Sunday, November 02, 2008
FOUND IN THE FOLLOWING Ripoff Report from last year in November!!! It's in the 'Updates' section of the Ripoff Report entitled:

RIP OFF REPORT EARL STEWART TOYOTA TRIED TO (you can 'Google' it!), and sing the Toyota Christmas Song to the tune of- 'Away in a Manger'.

Make sure to 'Google' this first- ENGINE SLUDGE, and go to the consumeraffairs website about Toyota Engine complaints and scroll down to Brittany's complaint on 6-16-2007. Read her complaint!!! Then sing the 'Toyota Christmas Song'. Keep in mind- Mr. Funo WAS Toyota's CEO back in 2004 & 2005 until Jim Press replaced him in June of 2005. Jim Press QUIT as Toyota's CEO exactly TWO WEEKS after SLUDGE POEM (you can 'Google' it!) was posted on 8-23-2007! Jim Press announced his RESIGNATION with Toyota on 9-6-2007!!!

Guess what? Jim Press went over to CHRYSLER!!!! Now, CHRYSLER is COLLAPSING!!!

KARMA has taken over!!!!!

POWER TO THE PEOPLE!!!!!

P.S. Don't forget to 'Google' this- FINANCIAL NUCLEAR OPTION POEM, and read it!!! 'HANKY PANKY SONG' can also be found in the comments section along with- CICLEY'S POEM, & DOUBLE TROUBLE BUBBLE POEM, & THIRD QUARTER POEM, & FANNIE POEM, & FREDDIE POEM, & even more poems!!!!!

Write a poem- they'll all know him!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sing a song- you can't go wrong!!!!!!!

I'm Karl, and I approve this Update.

P.S. I believe that the stock market will PLUNGE by early 2009 because '4th Quarter Results' will be VERY, VERY, BAD for almost all of the Fortune 500 Corporations!!!!! Remember what the HARVARD Business Professor said- QUOTE: 'If sales are going down, so should the stock.' (end quote). Look for the Dow Jones to go to about 7,000 by early 2009. I believe it'll go as low, or LOWER, than 7,000 before March 9th 2009. January 23rd could be the day we see 7,000!!!!

'Google' this- RIP OFF REPORT FUEL FREEDOM INTERNATIONAL MPG CAPS, and go to the 2001 Toyota Tacoma Ripoff Report, and then to the 'Update' entitled- 'Blame it on a Lawyer' to read what ELSE the HARVARD Business Professor said!!!

REMEMBER- our ENTIRE ECONOMY, & GOVERNMENT is based mostly on- FRAUD, CORRUPTION, DECEPTION, MANIPULATION, GREED, LIES, & the CONSTANT PURSUIT TO FINANCIALLY INJURE THE INNOCENT!!!!! If you don't believe it, simply 'Google' this- AMERICA: FREEDOM TO FASCISM, and watch Aaron Russo's documentary on the WEB for FREE!!!!!!!!

WELCOME TO AMERICA- IN FRAUD WE TRUST!!!!!!
