Additional Notes

Complaint: Purchased car on 6-21-13 signed contract including a power train and maintenance warranty The loan was through ***** ***** 5.9% and 232 a mo. Put a trade and cash down which was excepted. Recieved call on June 28 2013 stating wells would not do business with that warranty company. Nothing was offered to resolve except for me to pay 100 down and 44 additional per month I said I can't afford that and please look for another option but my de was contingent with having the warr . No call back from him do I placed a call Tuesday July 2,2013 He said still you pay difference or don't have it He has not done anything to resolve this . When I asked for a comp warr he gave and option if one without maint , a and 100 deductible which is not comparable

Desired Settlement: I would like them to pay for the 100 down and half the 899 the original warr costs so that my car payments will remain 232 a month inducing warranty

Business Response: At this point, what we (Sunset motors) are willing to do is one of the 3 following options.
#1.  Provide the Alpha Warranty 3year or,36,000 mile powertrain plus coverage with 0 dollar deductible financed through ***** ***** dealer services at the original rate and term of 48 months at 5.99% interest for a monthly payment of $232.07, which is exactly the same term, rate and payment from the original contract.  This will be below our cost, to match her previous payment.  (Retail value of $1560.00)
#2.  Sunset Will pay the $100.00 down for the GSAN maintenance contract, and ******* can do the 0 interest finance with GSAN for an additional monthly payment outside of the Wells contract on the vehicle of $44.38 (the wells payment would go down to $210.96, without the warranty being finance through ***** *****).
#3.    Bring the 08 jeep back and she can take possession her 01 jeep back, which now has a new windshield and has been detailed, at no cost to her.  We will just "Unwind" the entire deal and she can go purchase a vehicle at a different dealer.
At this point, this is what we prefer, becasue we feel that no matter what we do, she will not speak favorably about Sunset Motors, or me (Chuck Scott).
I mentioned this option to ******* once the contract was sent back from ***** *****, to the best of my knowledge, she never responded to this option.
Thank you for your time and assistance in this.
