On May 18th 2018, I purchased a motor vehicle from this dealership. Unfortunately, the vehicle has not been satisfactory because it suffers from numerous fluid leaks including oil, transmission and power steering. These issues were masked and not mentioned during the sale. The salesman, David Cantella assured me that the vehicle was thoroughly inspected prior to being available for purchase and the car had NO mechanical problems. I specifically asked him the second time just to make sure and he reassured me that it was thoroughly checked and had no mechanical problems.
We brought the vehicle home on the 18th and on Saturday the 19th May, we noticed oil stains on our driveway and on Monday the 21st May when the mechanics were open, we brought the vehicle for them to look at and they advised to my horror, that there were numerous leaks and also advised, if the vehicle was checked at all, they would have noticed these issues as it was impossible not to see them. The mechanic advised that these repairs must be performed immediately and the cost would be a phenomenal $3,000.00 that we were not expecting and just do not have.
Upon returning to the dealership, David Cantella admitted that the car had only undergone a safety check and that we had purchased it “as is.” Ken and John, managers stated that they will not fix the vehicle because that would imply a warranty was given. They also warned us to not involve a lawyer. The car was grossly misrepresented, the sales man lied to us. The transaction was fraudulent. The company has been uncooperative in resolving this matter. Upon Ira Green’s request, we brought the car back to the dealership for an inspection on May 24th 2018 and subsequently turned away because their lawyer advised him to not do anything. I consider the lack of respect and wasting our time is just another example of the type of establishment they run.
