I wanted to purchase a 2020 Toyota Corolla VIN# 5YFHPRAE8LP052984 from Price Toyota in New Castle Delaware, stock number K052984. The price advertised on the internet was $14,530.00 On July 20, 2020 at 12:17 PM I called and spoke to Samantha who confirmed that the car was still available; that the price was correct at $14,530 (she confirmed it with Tom Bonner); and that I had an appointment for 12:45-1:00 the same day. I went to the dealership and asked to test drive the car and was given keys to do so after they made a copy of my drivers license. When I got back, I gave them a Mastercard to put $4,000 down and come back between 5:00 and 6:00 PM to pay the balance and take delivery.
Trevour Shoun got involved and said they could not honor the price. Another gentleman got involved and he too said they would not honor the price of $14,530. They moved it up to over $18,000.
I consider this to be false advertising and misrepresentation.
