On Oct. 16, I went to Safford Dodge, Springfield dealer after getting what is termed to be derogatory conduct, misrepresentations of Safford Fredericksburg having a 2015 Dodge Charger R/T, 29R with several special packages I wanted. The dealer advertised the discounted price of $34,000 (rounded off) from a $42,000. After about 2 weeks of not getting any replies or the return calls to Safford of Fredericksburg, I contacted the GM of Springfield, Ron Green.
We talked and he said he would help me to buy that car from him in Springfield. On the 16, Saturday, I went to see him to buy that car. Once there, the salesman was very helpful, enthusiastic, and interested in helping me. It was 10 a.m.. By 2 p.m., the attitudes of the Finance Manager, Kim Burke, and the salesman, Youuve, changed with frosty results from both.
What was to be, I was told a sale completion of 3 hours turned out to be 5-1/2 hours and my $34,000 sale was illegally raised to $42,000, without any Chrysler allowed discount of $8,000 (rounded off).
Moreover, my very good, previous credit approvals by CapitalOne, Santander, and in this purchase, Chrysler Capital approved my purchase on a 5.6% or Special Rate, 0.0% for 72 mos. on a purchase of a new Dodge Charger R/T.
Criminally, Ms. Burke and Mr. Green raised my interest rate to 16.9%, more than 10% over what Chrysler Capital had given me on a 721, 767 credit scores that legally don't justify any higher rate over 5 or 6%.
After 18 Oct., despite my being approved by Chrysler Capital on the 16th, Safford Dodge's GM and FM refused to return my calls, emails, and Chrysler Capital was telling me from Office of the President, Amanda, Renee, and Bianca, that it only approved a 0.0% for 72 Months special rate. She also told me that I should call an attorney to discuss with the attorney that Safford Dodge's GM and FM have illegally kept me from signing my contract, hindered my contract rights with Chrysler Capital, and it did criminally raise the price of the car by $8,000 and fraudulently raised my interest rate by more that 10-16% over what I was approved for by CapitalOne, Santander, and Chrysler Capital on 751, 767, and 780 credit scores from 16 July to 16 Oct..
As of this date, 6 Nov., Safford Dodge has not replied to any calls to it and not answered any emails I sent or that were sent by 3 creditor/lenders who had approved my purchases from Safford Dodge Fredericksburg and then Springfield.
My repeated findings of this Dodge dealers criminal acts and illegally increased price contrary to what was advertised and its willfully criminal manufacturing of an excessive interest rate above what any of those lenders had approved.
Therefore, the FTC is now investigating my documented and factual reports of Safford Dodge's prior and current criminal acts and illegal conduct committed directly against hundreds or thousands of its consumers, like me.
Thank you for your immediate attention to this post to publicize these ongoing acts by a Dodge Dealership.
I Recommend This Dealer:
Kimberly Burke, Finance Manager
