I emailed the dealership in the morning about a car that I was interested in. I made an appointment to look at it that afternoon. When I got there, the salesman, named Dale, told me that the car was out front ready for me to test drive. He then went to get the keys and came back about five minutes later and told me he was sorry but the car was sold an hour ago which is xxxxxxxx because Even if the car was just sold, it would still be there on the lot. Instead of getting mad about it, I asked if he had any other vehicles in my price range. He started to look on his computer but as soon as I told him that I had my own financing already in place, he very quickly lost interest in trying to help me.
I will not do business with a dealership that lies like this. The car sounded too good to be true which obviously it was.
Shame on this dealership for trying to scam me and for allowing me to drive 45 minutes to see a car that they did not even have. I will also be reporting this to Car Gurus as this was where I had seen the car listed as a “great value.”
