as an addition to my post on my new rc ...i went back the second day with a check .
they asked for my courtesy contract and i also gave them the original contract ( but i made copies ) which i gave them. i then gave them a check to pay the lease in full.
they gave me back a contract which they had shown me on a computer ON THE SAME DAY I BOUGHT THE CAR and had asked me to sign electronically which i did ........but when i was shown this contract the numbers that showed up later were not there .
when i got home and read it i discovered a new set of numbers that were not originally disclosed to me. under line F there was a RENT CHARGE for $3945.96
i fell for this old trick.
in short the up front payment came to $29.
the residual $37
i was originally told that if i paid in full,up front ,there would be no interest payments ---------THEY LIED BIG TIME .
i admit that they gave me the amount i would pay up front and residual . but they did not disclose in full the details of this rent charge.i acted and bought the car on the belief that all was proper .
that night i e-mailed all involved plus the GM and received a call the next day from the very nice salesman who told me that the GM had asked him to contact me.
. he said i had misunderstood. i did not . he offered to do anything to make me happy....i asked to return the car....he said ok. i told him i would be there the next day .
my wife did not want to go to the dealer again ......but i got a friend to take me that same day and i called them to tell them i would be there inside two hours (it is one hour drive ).
they called me back within 15 minutes as i was getting ready to leave .
bottom line , they offered to give me $2. off. and THEY admitted that even thou they stated that there would be no interest payments, there are such because is such a new car. this is BS...............
so , i took the offer ..........i like the car but i can always get another one someplace else ............maybe a can find an honest dealer and not a stealer . but this lack of ethics and underhanded maneuver has me upset. and i plan to follow thru .
( but i still have an ace to play as i know the family owners of this florida dealership and i am waiting to see them again to give them the situation , i do not want to embarass them but ????????? ) .
i took the $2.0 discount but they did not admit to fraud which in my opinion this is what happened and as i talk to people i hear this is common .
i will be filing a report with Pam, the attorney general and the consumer fraud section. ( the atty. g. cannot do much other than refer me to the consumer protection bureau.)
i could have my lawyers file ...but it will cost me more than what they screwed me over . ...what they do not know is that i have the evidence in my phone and copies of all.
we will see how this plays out.
