I purchased a 2 year old toyota certified 2010 toyota camry se from Orland Toyota on June 18th 2012. This car was presented to me as being an accident free vehicle, and was supposedly inspected and certified. The day the car was purchased work was performed on it which would have shown dealership employees the vehicle had been in a previous front end accident and had parts replaced, thus would not have been able to have been Toyota Certified as a used vehicle. This damage was not disclosed to me that day, and I was sold the car without this knowledge. About 3 weeks ago I had the radiator fail due to improper installation of parts associated with it. Orland Toyota performed this work the day I purchased the car. The local toyota dealership that performed the repairs showed me the signs of previous damage, and the lack of quality repair techniques. My car was missing hardware, the hood latch was not installed properly and was loose, there was paint overspray on parts showing body work had been performed, and one of 2 of the horns were disconnected. They also showed me signs that the work performed by Orland Toyota was insufficient as the parts they installed did not fit properly as they were cheap aftermarket copy parts. I have reached out to orland toyota to get resolution on this sales deception issue, as well as to address the poor workmanship. They are not responding to calls, or when they do respond they are telling me to talk to someone else and wait a week before I can get ahold of that person.

Desired Settlement
I would like my money back for what I paid for this car, as I would not have purchased it if I had been made aware of the previous damage on the day I purchased it.

Orland Toyota sold a 2010 Toyota Camry on 6/18/2012 with 23,069 miles and a clean ****** report. It has been almost two and a half years since the vehicle was sold. The vehicle also shows having been driven to 39,248 miles. Orland Toyota was not aware of any body work having been performed to the vehicle. The local Toyota dealership that worked on the vehicle had previously performed service/maintenance and not found any issues related to damage or poor workmanship. Two and a half years later the radiator fails without any indication of a pre existing condition. The desired resolution by the client is unreasonable.

I purchased a 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIN#**********UXXXXXX on 2/17/2014 with a mileage of 56,126. The engine completely failed coasting to a stop sign around the corner from my house on 4/6/2014 at a mileage of 57,912. Cylinder 1 connecting rod snapped and caused 2 holes in the engine block rendering it completely destroyed. I contacted the pre-owned sales manager, ************ the day after 4/7/2014 asking for assistance. I was informed that because I did not purchase any extended warranty there was nothing they could do and told me "Good Luck". With this being my only vehicle I immediatly searched for a replacement engine. I was able to find a brand new OEM Long Block Assembly from Mitsubishi for sale on an online forum. Used engines proved hard to come by and with all the metal inside the engine everything needed to be replaced. This engine is no longer available for purchase new from Mitsubishi. I purchased the engine via private party sale and placed a deposit of $500 for it on 4/8/2014. I also purchased other neccessary parts to replace the engine, such as seals, gaskets, and an oil cooler as it would have metal particles in it from the engine failure. This totaled $723.43, a discounted price from the local Mitsubishi Dealer as I work in the automotive industry. Th I recieved the engine and paid the remaining balance and shipping charges on 4/16/2014, this amount totaling $6471.51. I work as a Master Technician for Towne BMW in *********** I was able to complete the engine replacement myself, the repair was complete as of 4/22/2014. This repair according to book time would cost close to $2000... I have not requested reimbursement of this amount. I have documented pictures of the mileage at time of failure, pictures of the damage to the engine along with receipts for all transactions. I sent the President of the company, Mr. **** ******* all of this documentation and a letter explaining my complaint with no response. The letter and documents were sent Fedex and were recieved by them on 6/16/2014. I have recieved no sort of response or attempt at communication from them.

Desired Settlement
I am requesting the amount of $7694.94, this amount covers the engine, all required parts for replacing the engine and shipping charges I have paid for in order to drive this vehicle again. I am not requesting reimbursement for the labor involved with the repair which would have cost around $2000.00 at any repair facility.

Mr. **** arrived at our dealership on February 14th 2014. He was made aware that turbocharged Mitsubishi Evolutions are sold with no warranty of any kind because they are considered high performance automobiles. The option of purchasing a service contract is made available to every buyer if the vehicle is eligible. He elected to decline the optional coverage and also signed the bill of sale acknowledging the vehicle was sold as is and shown without any warranty expressed or implied. He test drove the vehicle and also inspected it prior to driving the vehicle from ****** **** Illinois back to ******* *** **** without encountering any problems. Mr.**** had possesion of the vehicle 53 days and drove 1,786 miles without any complaints.
