Total waste of time going to Prestige Toyota in Ramsey. Stay far away. Being a repeat customer, I was invited to a "VIP EVENT" last Saturday. $7000 off purchase of Camry, $99/month lease Camry, etc..
Called 15 minutes before the event, spoke Mark about availability of vehicles. He's told me there’s “plenty” of Camry's in stock and available for $99/month. Arrive 15 minutes later, greeted by salesperson Raul who told there were no vehicles available, then brings me to another Camry $10K more than the one in my invitation. I said I didn't want it. He goes in the 'backroom’, comes back and tells me there was actually one left, but at a storage location in Nyack, and would have it delivered to dealership on Monday. He asks for credit card and tells me he got his manager’s approval to take a $500.00 deposit and hold the car for me.
Fast forward to Monday morning, I get a text message from Raul's telling me the Camry had not arrived in Ramsey and would get back to me when it did. He said in the text he tried to call me, but I didn't answer, which was a lie, phone was by my side, no incoming log with his number. Placed a call to his manager Kevin, who called me back and told me a mistake had been made, and the promised car was the wrong year. Told him I was only interested in the $99 offer, he said he would TRY to get me a car by Friday or Saturday. I noticed the $99 promotion still their website, so I call and spoke to Mike, who told me they did have cars available for the $99 lease deal. I asked to double check. He does then tells me there's absolutely cars available, no holds or deposits on them. Call Kevin about conversation with Mike. Kevin calls and tells me that one of the vehicles was a demo, and the other did have a check as a deposit. I then call Nelson Fong, General Manager, and Steve Reedy, General Sales Manager with my concerns. Neither one returned my call. Later Kevin calls to tell me he located a vehicle and will have it delivered on Tuesday, and I can pick it up Wednesday.
Tuesday morning, I call Kevin requesting a pick up time and ask for a copy of the lease and all financial details. Not having heard back, I reach out to Nelson and Steve again. No luck. Kevin finally calls advising me my vehicle would be ready next day. I ask for financials again, he directs me to Sam, the finance manager. I call Sam, who insists on reviewing financials over the phone. Sam misstates several of the fees, and adds a few not in listed in the disclaimer. They amount to over $1000. I voice my concern, Sam refers me to Steve his manager. Yes, Steve Reedy, the guy who doesn’t return calls. I tried to voice my concerns. He tells me all the mishaps were "honest human error", and that I would have to pay all the fees to lease the vehicle. I agreed, asked when I could pick up my vehicle. He then pulls out of the deal, because of my concerns. When I asked about the deposit Raul had taken. He abruptly ended the call, saying he was never told about the deposit. He called back saying there was no deposit. My bad for not asking for a receipt. He then reiterated his decision to no give me the car.
Wednesday, finally get a call from Nelson Fong who had no interest in my concerns. He tells me he doesn’t want to do business because, “you be somebody who would continuously not be happy with the transition” WHAT?! He follows with, ‘it’s no difference than going to a restaurant and eating food you don’t like, and people don’t want you to be there”. HUH?! Next he tells me he sells 450 cars a month, presumably to make me feel inadequate.
Just try and get that $99/month lease....
