This used car dealer is the scum that all used car dealers are supposed to be. He is a slimy dirtbag with no conscience or no scruples he personifies all the evil that a used car dealer could be.

I had checked out a car on his lot and asked if I might take it for a test drive. He told me that his insurance was poor and had a $1000 deductible and was required to put a deposit on my credit card. Just in case there was an accident.

I was stupid to oblige but I was assured that if I didn't like the car I would get my money back. I took it for a ride and was pleased with it's performance and made an offer wich we had kicked back and forth. I had asked him if the car had been in an accident and he said it had been stolen but was sure there was no structural damage.

I then signed the papers and was on my way only to see that the car had rebuilt status on the papers. I was furious and called him to get out of the deal. Which he then told me that the car was stolen and that could be the result of stolen seats being replaced because they are leather and very expensive.

He told me at that time that I would lose the $1000 deposit if I backed out of the deal. At which time I thought I could call Visa and tell them to stop the payment. They told me that it won't be a no problem and would simply do a charge back.

I was glad and thought that slick SOB did not get the best of me. But little did I know this would go array and I would be stuck paying the $1000 deposit. I was later informed that they do not do charge backs when the invoice is signed.

I would like to warn all who may be looking for a good used car and maybe think about Parkwood Auto/Dakota motors and would tell you to go elsewhere. This guy is bad news and should be avoided. His cars are all high mileage or write offs or have some problems that may not be evident at first glance. Stay away.

Surrey, British Columbia

Jeff is surprising me

AUTHOR: Parkwood Auro Sales Ltd - (Canada)

POSTED: Wednesday, March 11, 2009

Consider this happened March 19 1999 which is 10 years ago, I am surprised the report is still on here, even a bankruptcy dissolves after 7 years! As for Jeff, he filed a court proceeding on September 23 , more than 6 months after this happened!He took me to court. When Mr. Mace left the court room after his claim was dismissed, he turned to face me, shook my hand, said to me there was no hard feelings, basically admiting he was wrong. Any body can find out about the rule in our favour by court registry file # 45940 in the Surrey B.C. courthouse.When I bumped into Mr. Mace at a social function years later, he was jovial to me and again stated everything was fine. Seems when Jeff is hiding behind a computor, he is a different person.I was surprised he made a claim 'all is not well'. Apparantely any body can slander anyone on ripp off report. He stated we would be out of business shortly, he was again wrong.He forgot to mention in his report that we do not have any complaints against us from the BBB, and a 10 year achievment for customer satifaction.Your wrong Jeff,you made a deal, the used car you bought your escinded on, the court judge was right, Mr. Mace should be dismissed.

All is not well

AUTHOR: Jeff - (Canada)

POSTED: Sunday, December 28, 2008

Although many years have past the lesson is long learned. I did not apologise to this man nor did the court side in favour of Parkwood as it was thrown out of court along with his counter claim for damages (advertising, time spent and loss of face) . In summation I still feel the same way toward this shmuck and would as I have said to his face " I wouldn't bu a stick of gum from you". He is simply put dishonest and will continue ripping people off as his prices are quite good. But the old saying goes quality comes with a price and you get what you pay for. Marc is the one who is making money by selling low quality cars at low prices. I am very surprised that he is still in business to be quite honest. I truly believe that everyone gets what is coming to them and at some time Mr. Buene who is the owner and not an employee as he lets you believe. When you live a life of ripping people off day in and day out I don't know how he sleeps at night. If one person reads this and decides to go elsewhere then my 5 minutes to write this was worth it. PLease add your bad experiences with this jerk as I can't imagine there are many good ones.

Jeff unhappy with Parkwood Auto Sales Ltd

AUTHOR: Parkwood Auro Sales Ltd - (Canada)

POSTED: Saturday, August 04, 2007

Jeff and I , Marc , employee of Parkwood Auto Sales Ltd. went to small claims court and the judge sided with Parkwood Auto Sales Ltd.
Jeff apologized after court to me , and we have since talked and every thing seems to be fine.
Jeff changed his mind on the purchase of sale agreement and was frustrated he did not get a refund on his deposit.
Before he signed the sale agreement he was asked to carefully read it.
I did try to work something out with him , but he was adamant about the said deposit.
He did realize that not only days had passed ,and did clearly sign beside our "no refunds " which was clearly explained to him before he signed.
