Mommy Needs To Vent

BUYING A CAR READ THIS!
You should have heard those people laughing at me and hanging up the phone. They wouldn’t even discuss it. It all came down to some add-ons that I have now found out came with the car anyway. They charged me $500.00 to have keyless entry when the car already had it to begin with. Some major tips:
- DO NOT DRIVE OFF THE LOT WITHOUT A CONTRACT. Sounds like something I should have known in the first place. The finance guy lied and said that he would draw up a contract and we needed to go in and sign it in the next couple of days. (I had 2 kids with me and it was now 11:30 at nite) So I just figured that it would be taken care of. Once you drive off the lot, the deal is done.
- DO NOT GET THE ADD ONS they make sound so great. Come to find out they were just jacking up the price. I have read so many articles on the internet that say all most of that is crap. This is the thing…we agreed to all that, signed the contract, and then decided we didn’t want that payment, so we signed a paper saying we wanted it cancelled.
But “no” they didn’t say anything like, well its too late.
- DON’T CALL THE DEALERSHIP after you realized what happened. They will laugh in your face and make you cry. They could careless what they did when I talked to them and I was bawling my eyes out like a baby. They already got their money from the bank. They didn’t care about me. They don’t even care about customer satisfaction because most of them won’t be working their in 5 years.
Just had to vent….
By the way I just made my first internet site. I will post about it tomorrow.
Find someone with the local news station and report it. Also contact the Better Business Bureau.
That's horrible what they did to you. They always try to pull a fast one. When I bought my Toyota Sienna last year I wanted a particular color and I was told that was $2000 extra. Stupid me agreed and signed the papers. Well when I went home it just didn't sit right with me and I did a bunch of looking and calling around and found the same car I wanted. I went to the new dealership to talk with them and got $5000 cheaper price. I couldn't believe it. I cancelled the other car which in most states your are allowed to do and get your deposit back though that dealership wasn't happy oh and they said if I didn't cancel they could take $500 off. I said no way I got a better deal elsewhere. So it really pays to really search things out and know exactly what your going for before you go options and all and know what you want to pay. It saved me money!
Although this post wasn't exactly, what I was looking for, it certainly got my attention and interest. I see row why I found your page when I was looking for car tips related information, and I am glad I stopped by even though this isn’t a perfect match.
