"UNREAL ---- BEWARE"
I never write reviews, ever. I just figure it won't matter. I hope this one does.
I'll be completely honest about my situation. i had a second tear credit score, had just totaled my 7 month old Rav4. 2 weeks after that i replaced it with a Rav4 adventure. I bought it from cool springs toyota, like i had my 4 previous cars. being in a crash that totals your car leaves you desperate, and vulnerable. I went and bought the same car that saved my life.... not a bad choice, except for the fact that my wife and I have decided we need something bigger to tow a trailer.
Now, all of this,.... My fault ! To make a long story short, toyota sent me to their sister store (dodge - Jeep), just down the road that is owned by the same man, George Girjel, who was actually the one who asked the finance manager MICHAEL SLATE, to do his best to take care of us.
excited, because I've always secretly wanted a dodge ram 1500, i went. I was met there by Michael, and a salesman. they ran the numbers, came back way to high. i guess my score had changed in a week and i went from below 5%, to over 9% interest rate. Obviously, thats a high payment. One, i was unwilling to pay.
they came back again, literally 28 dollars a month from our goal payment. that might not sound like much, but in this situation, it was.
so, i walked away.
the next day i was texted by Michael asking if we could speak via text, i said yes. what started out as him saying, if you change your mind, let me know. to, just give me the 28.00 and come pick up your dodge ram.
I was hurt, and insulted. He apologized, promised to first thing in the morning work on the bank to get our desired payment. after multiple attempts to text, and even call..... no response.
now, short of a family emergency, he could at least have someone, anyone call me, text me and give me a heads up. another wasted day feeling belittled, unimportant, and disregarded.
i get that my situation was and is a challenge, and if you aren't up for it, just say so... ill move on. but DO NOT lie to me, treat me like a second class citizen and ignore me.
BEWARE you guys..... enter at your own risk!
