I did not want to waste my time registering for this site but after my bad experience with them and I found this search about sunrise ford.I had to. A person I was dating recommended me this place.For some reason the topic went to cars and somehow i end up here, but I never talk to that attractive guy ever again. After what happen, i figured they were all related.

There very friendly and will promise you anything from day 1. Will make you sign a contract and says your approve and you can take the car with a $1000 dollar deposit. Contacts you the next day and you have to sign a different contract bec. you are not approve but you will get the car. 4 days of my Day off was taken away. I had to have someone cover my shift, it was wasted by Sunrise Ford. The dealer will want to be close and act like they can be in a relationship type of thing to you. Be careful. They will entertain you to want you to beg them to get the car. I almost did it but something hit me and made me grab my keys and i was pouring down tears and i said i give up. That was my 5th visit BTW. I just really can't explain how they can lie and lie and apologize and there are so many RED FLAGS that are not obvious till you figure this people will do anything to make money of of you.

The Dealer called and said "My manager says 'what happen to the lady.I can approve her. Bring her in and she can take the car".This had happen twice. similar to this last conversation.  I finally said. I dont need it.

You did the right thing..

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

First of all they didn't "make" you do anything.  That was your choice to sign the contract.  However, with that said you did end up doing the right thing by not purchasing a car from a dealer who tried to use these tacticts to their advantage.

What they did was called "spot delivery".  This is where they tell you that you are approved and everything is "good".  You then take the car and they contact you saying that you need to come in and sign more paperwork.

Once you arrive they tell you that you are not approved, but they can get you approved.  Of course this time the terms are not as good, such as you need more down payment, it is a higher interest rate, or you need a co-signer.  They do this because once you have the car they hope that you will want it so much that they can talk you into these less favorable terms.

This is why it is good to always have your financing in place before you go to the dealer.  Now, honest dealers(yes they do exist) use "spot delivery" all of the time, especially if you purchase a car on a weekend or evening.  With these dealers they are actually able to get you the deal and everything is good.  But there are enough bad dealers it is always best to not take that chance on "spot delivery".

Your post makes no sense.  They "made" you sign a contract and then what?
