I purchased a vehicle a 1996 Chevrolet Express 1500 Van. I used my credit card and wrote a check. I was expecting a deposit from both the VA and Social Security. They did not come through. When I realized this I called immediately, trying to work out a solution. Meanwhile, the day after I purchased the vehicle, it broke down. I had it running again and took it to Kerry Ford to speak to Justin, the finance manager. He told me they would be taking the vehicle and keeping it there. We were told to wait until the 'general manager' arrived. A woman came to the table where we were told to wait. She stated that we needed to take the vehicle or 'kerry ford would tow it off at our expense' We took the vehicle home. Within two days the transmission began to slip to the point of only running in second gear. The next day the vehicles engine threw a rod, making it completely inoperable. We spoke to the real General Manager Art Henderickson, he told us that they would not take the vehicle back and they would be 'calling the police.' When I asked if I could work something else or return the vehicle and get back our $1000 Mr. Henderickson said, 'You can go F*** yourself and I'll see you in prison.' I then contacted the owner of Kerry Ford, Doy Baker, we had a discussion and he said that I could return the vehicle and get back our money. I again spoke to Art Henderickson and told him the vehicle had to be towed, due to it being inoperable. A tow truck arrived, hooked the vehicle and began to pull it onto the truck. after about a foot, the transaxle snapped throwing rust everywhere. We were told by the mechanic that if that had happened on the road it could have thrown the wheel off, possibly killing us and our four children. Kerry Ford took receipt of the vehicle and told us if we couldn't be there by 5pm we would have to wait. We called the next day and spoke to Art, Justin and Doy Baker all of whom said that they would be keeping our money due to 'damaged and taxes.' and they said 'they would see me in prison'
