leased my last car from Bonner three years ago, no muss no fuss and all was well. When it came time to turn it in I was in the market for a new car and wanted no parts of a lease, only a purchase. The sales manager Dave was more than happy to accommodate me, and after reviewing with him what I wanted in the vehicle, he suggested he had a demo with those exact specifications that he would sell me for an agreed upon price. After the car was pulled around i found it was stock and didn't have the options we agreed to; so Dave being the salesman he is suggested that he would find me one since all I wanted extra was dvd's for the kids in the back seat. The next day he called and asked if I believed in fate.... the truck just dropped off another vehicle to add to his stock, and this one had everything I wanted. This was on a Friday and I asked for pictures of it, he said he could not accommodate me because it was locked in the shop to be detailed. I trusted him and I told him it was sold, get it ready for me for Monday. As fate would have it, Monday comes and almost goes before I get a call from Dave, telling me we have a bit of a twist, but its a good twist. See he misread the listing again and it didn't have what we needed so he offered to give us displays that hang off the back of the seats, to which I quickly declined. They were Ipod type devices and I think he was shocked that I didn't seem as enthusiastic as he was. I told him that's just more junk I was going to have to keep after and that they would probably be stolen out of the truck in weeks. He agreed and vowed to find me another truck. Three more days later he found a vehicle that the other dealership would relinquish so I told him to go and get it, I'm ready to get all of this behind me. Two more days to get the truck and detail it and he sends me pictures of it; finally! a vehicle with all the options I wanted. I told him I put very little mileage on it and that's why we ( my wife and I) chose to buy our next vehicle rather than lease. Several hours go by and later that night I get a call where he calmly explains that this vehicle is out of my price range for a purchase and that a lease is what will be needed to make the vehicle mine. I was absolutely dumbfounded?!?!?!?! What happened to the agreed upon price I asked, he suggested that i should have known this vehicle was going to cost more (keep in mind 500.00 extra for dvd's) and he just assumed we were OK with a lease.
To make a long story short, we did not take the vehicle after almost three weeks of incompetence and lies. I called him out on it as a complete bait and switch tactic to which he emphatically of course denied. Dave even had the nerve to offer the lease to me one more time before I hung up the phone, what a joke. I would tend to agree with the other poster that if you have half a clue and are not afraid to call BS you will not be welcomed there. I swear after Dave saw my credit rating he thought we would take what ever he offered. Sad, I have since dealt with another Chevy dealer than will get my future business.
