My Review Of Sun State Ford:
I bought a great used 2013 Chevy from this dealership. It came with two warranties, including a warranty from the Ford dealership. Charles the finance officer was very professional and polite but with my salesman... Initially, I have a feeling that because I was young and female that they could screw me for an extra $1,000 on the car I saw online AND called to confirm the price in their inventory. My saleperson said he could not absolutely EVER change the price EVER, until I showed proof of the internet price over my phone. Then he changed the price to the internet price and said he'll honor it but it was an internet typo. Yeah, right.
I asked if he'd go any lower and he said he already took $1,000 off (...but that's because it was overpriced and I showed him the actual price). He then showed me how affordable the car was compared to other models within a 100 mile radius (...but that was after I argued with him to bring it down by $1,000. In other words it wasn't affordable 10 minutes ago).
Then he showed me a couple with another salesman looking at the car I was going to buy and said "you should get it for this price before they do" in which I replied "you mean he's going to sell that car before you do. I can go to a different dealership. Only one person loses that deal." Since then he was quite difficult with me.
I offered to put $5,000 down but since I'm young I don't have credit, which is understandable. He said he couldn't give me the care even though I put $5,000 on a $13,000 car. So I left. 5 minutes later while I'm driving away he calls me and said he found me someone to finance me.
I asked him what company was financing me, how much the APR was, and for how long will that APR last. He said he couldn't tell me. I asked him to get his finance officer to call me and that's when my saleman curtly told me how he really felt about me. It was not polite, but hey, I'm a young woman with no credit history who lives with her parents. Right? He told me he couldn't do that either, that I have to be at the dealership.
I sounded displeased and told him I'd call him back but I didn't. An hour later his finance officer calls me and gives me everything I want to know.
Once everything was set, I went from the trailer-home sized used car building to the prestigious new car building to file everything in order. All of a sudden Niyi treated me like an old time friend and was very kind when I walked in with my checkbook. They treat you very differently once they get you. So far the car is great, I bought a third warranty just in case. I may not have a credit history but that's because I invest in stock. If only my salseman knew...
