Mark Anderson played games on a used car sale.
Drove 45 min to dealership after giving verbal authorization for deposit, then basically said car was sold to someone after our discussion the prior day. Preceded to shake his head greeting me, pure guilt. Sold the car after I had authorized a deposit earlier in the day.
After quick discussion few choice words in parking lot, we left.
Called the GM Rick Tully, no better result. Listened intently, then waited 30 min to call me back.
Made up some b.s. Story about rust on the car, some concerns with rust on frame.
The car in question has a unibody construction, it had only 50k on it.
There was no rust.. Games people, games.
The bottom line was for my mother in law . She wanted to replace her 2002 C240 with a similar car & being 76 was not ready for another new car and learning everything. The car presented at the dealer was a very nice 2003 C320.
They disappointed for no reason a real cash buyer and played games by weeding out customers or bid jacking the price on the car with fake other inquiries.
Do not buy from this group of sales people. 23 years in retail for me, 50+ years in retail for my mother in law and there is always time for a first. I had been waiting to find a place like this for a long time , whereby the live up to the stereo type of a crap dealer sales team.
Well, found it here.
See the margin in used cars are much higher for sales people, so games can be played, you just have to know when to walk away.
Do not buy here. If you do, enjoy getting taking to the cleaners or shafted in some way or another.
