ince January 2018 I had been saving for a dependable reliable car, I had gotten myself in financial trouble and my parents (I’m 22) told me “no more handouts.” I wanted a more reliable car, specifically an SUV (to fit friends in, good in snow, etc) so that i can go back to school and get my degree and save money and get a better job. I went to work basically full-time in january working at jewel at $9/hr i worked 50-60 hours a week to pay off debt and save for a new car. I put in the long hard hours, and finally at the end of may I signed off on a new-to-me 2006 Honda Pilot with less than 100,000 miles. bought and paid for with cash, in full. I was so proud of myself, because i set a goal and actually reached it i felt so good because now I actually owned something that was mine bought and paid for by myself. Three months after i purchased the car, the transmission began slipping i brought it to a locally owned shop and asked for some help. Thats when my happiness turned to sheer HORROR as the gruesome past of this car had been exposed…..it had been in an accident that totaled it, the car was then put together piece by piece to give the appearance that nothing had been wrong with it. THIS CAR WAS SOLD TO ME WITHOUT A WORKING AIRBAG SYSTEM, ABS SYSTEM OR EVEN SEATBELTS and to think I put my family, my friends, my loved ones in this car and drove around in it without even questioning this car’s safety and integrity. I was horrified because if i would have been in an accident, this car would have done absolutely nothing to protect me or my passengers in an accident meaning we could have been killed. To this day, I am still haunted by the fact that I had no idea i was driving a coffin on wheels. I called the dealership in which i got the car and asked for my money back, I was told to “xxxx off” and was hung up on. After doing extensive digging online with the VIN number, i uncovered pictures of the SUV BEFORE it had been repaired and its SHOCKING. THIS CAR SHOULD NOT HAVE EVER BEEN PUT BACK ON THE ROAD. I hired an attorney, who tried to negotiate with the dealership, and they will not do anything to get my hard earned money back, after i poured my blood, sweat and tears into buying this car, literally dropping school to buy it. They only want to “fix” the airbag system to make the car “roadworthy” again, okay fine the car would have airbags, but how do i know that the structure of the car would hold together in an accident? How would i know if it would protect me and my family? ALL I WANT IS MY MONEY BACK AND A RELIABLE CAR!! I am writing this to make sure that my story is heard and to warn everyone to STAY AWAY FROM PREMIER AUTO HAUS RUN AWAY AS FAST AS YOU CAN!! THIS DEALERSHIP IS A SCAM!! FALSE ADVERTISING AS IT WAS ADVERTISED CLEAN AND CLEAR TITLE.!!! as you can see from the attached pictures, this car should have never been sold. and i conclude with this: would you want YOUR family driving around in this car?
