My Review Of Fred Beans Cadillac Buick GMC:
James Roebuck III had quoted me a certain price for a lease on a Cadillac CTS 4 Sedan, and said that premium paint would be about $15 a month (which would make sense based on a residual just north of 0.5). When I arrive, they try to charge $29 a month, which means that over a 39 month lease, I would actually be paying $1,100 for a $1,000 (which even Mr. Fred Beans himself said was wrong). I should have walked out at that point, but I then made the mistake of giving them a deposit. Several days later, I get a call saying my credit application was denied (which is odd given that I have a very strong credit score), but miraculously, I could get the lease from Ally bank for another $30 and, oh, the special color I wanted wasn't available but they would get it in a different color. At this point, I told them to cancel the transaction and asked for a refund of the deposit which I never received. My accountant laughed when I told them the story as these types of tricks are quite commonplace. In any case, I would strongly recommend going somewhere that doesn't try to take advantage of, and trick customers (and then hold their deposit after the fact).
