Complaint: I sold my car that I had a loan with ********* to this dealership called R and E auto, its been over a month and a half since and they still havnt paid off my loan, ive been asking him for weeks to get it paid off and each time he said he would get it done, and I don't want it messing up my credit for non payment. I heard of a couple people that had similar problems with this guy, one it had been 3 months and he didn't pay off the loan and non payment was messing up his credit, and another guy had to go in with a lawyer before he finally paid it off.
Desired Settlement: I emailed a lawyer today for a consultation
Business Response: I thought this was taken care of. I will have this done ASAP. I forwarded all the info to the company that handles the flooring of the vehicles I purchase and I don't know what happened. I will resolve this on 4.01.2015

Complaint: I have, in writing that R & E Auto made a contract agreement to pay off the lien on my trade-in. I've done numerous follow-ups with the manager, **** ******, and the lien holder since purchase of the vehicle with still no loan payoff. By law the dealer has 30 days to pay off the note. As of November 15th, 2013 the vehicle is physically in the dealership's possession, and nothing has been resolved no matter how many times I've contacted them. I turned over possession of the vehicle and keys to the dealership on the date I bought the new car. Since the sale I've been making every monthly car payment, on the old vehicle and the one I'm physically in possession of.
Desired Settlement: R & E Auto needs to abide by all of their agreements made in the contact, to reinburse the full amount of payments made to the lien holder by myself since contract signing, and sale November 15th, 2013.
Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 13, 2014/09/11) */ The customer and I had a misunderstanding on the account number. It has since been resolved and the customer paid back all monies that were due
Problems with Product/Service
Read Complaint Details
Complaint: Improper repair of exhaust manifold. Old weld and crack existed in the passenger/ right exhaust manifold instead of replacing the manifold they weld the crack in it. You cannot weld a manifold. Broken manifold means engine loss of power and gas economy.
Desired Settlement: To replace and order a new. If they dont want to repair and pay for labor they can buy a new exhaust manifold and i will take care of the installation.
Business Response: Business' Initial Response /* (1000, 5, 2013/07/03) */ This is the first time we have heard about this issue with mr, *****'s vehicle. If he would have brought it it we would have checked out the problem and had it resolved Mr. ***** had, like any customer the right and ability to take the vehicle to his mechanic to look over the vehicle. If me. ****** wants to bring the vehicle back for a local mechanic to check out his potential issues we would welcome it Business' Final Response /* (-10, 7, 2013/07/03) */ I looked into this issue this morning. The manifold had been welded prior to the dealership owning the vehicle. We had the previous weld (repair) checked by an ASE certified mechanic prior to selling the vehicle. The mechanic stated that the repair was done correctly and in no way hindered the vehicle in performance, horsepower or fuel mileage. If the weld would not have been done correctly or had been leaking we would have changed the manifold but again it was done correctly. The vehicle purchased was a 11 year old Mitsubishi Montero with over 100K miles. Any vehicle that age or miles will have previously repairs done. If the repairs were done correctly it is all we can do.
