Additional Notes

Complaint: **** ****** from Car and Truck Outlet Inc sold me a vehicle site unseen. 2000 Honda Passport. I purchased it in February 2014. I drove for a month and change the oil because it was to cold here to do it right away. I noticed the check engine light came on,and the transmission was slipping as well as the gas gauge was not working. When I crawled under the car to do the oil change I seen the frame was rusted out behind the right front tire. It was rusted out on both sides of the frame. I looked under the rest of the car and found the rear bumper bracket was rusted out as well. The exhaust was loud when the guy delivered it.

Desired Settlement: Over the last 6 months I have been e-mailing **** ****** and he agreed to exchange the vehicle with one of the same value. I have all the e-mails we have exchanged about this vehicle. Every time he tells me a day and time, it never happens, it has happened as early as Monday the 4th between 6-7pm. No vehicle has shown up.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2014/08/11) */ Contact Name and Title: ****** ****** Contact Phone: XXXXXXXXXX Contact Email: ***** Mr ******* did buy the car as stated in Febuary, however he did not contact us in regards to any issues until 3 months later. The car was sold as is and shown to Mr ******. He had ample time within the first 10 days to better inspect and file any complaint. But with that said we did offer to do an exchange. We did have any cars that was acceptable until approx. a month ago when Mr ****** notified us he saw an Xterra that he was intrested in. Mr ****** had no interest in mmeeting us half way to do exchange it is either his way of forget it basically is his attitude. It is a 5 hour drive from us to him. And it is an expense to us of nearly 400.00 to drive a car there and back, including driver and fuel. So as to try and to goodwill for Mr ****** we have made attempts to get up there, but wer are limited on times and days by him. Again all this effort on our part is goodwill, we are under no obligations to do exchange or refund other than to promote goodwill. We will contiue to try and resolve with him to the point where it makes sense. Initial Consumer Rebuttal /* (3000, 7, 2014/08/23) */ (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.) I am glad that they will work with me. I have pictures and the emails from the beginning of this deal but that is to cover my ****.As far as limits set by me on the deliveries, I have been more then cooperative and allowed the times according to the drivers needs and left work to be here only to have no vehicle delivered and lost of work hours and just get excuses.I feel I was sold a vehicle in my opinion would not pass a safety inspection and would be taken off the road.Some how I can not believe these issues were missed when it was serviced, changing my oil is how I found the rusted out frame.I can say if it would have been disclosed that there was rust in the frame of this vehicle, I would not have bought it. None of these issues were disclosed and this vehicle was misrepresented as to its condition.I just want to hav Final Business Response /* (4000, 15, 2014/09/11) */ Mr ******, did purchase the car as is and shown. He did not make us aware of any issues until 2 months after purchase. So he plenty of time to inspect and bring to our attention any issue after delivery, however that was not the case. As a goodwill gesture we did say we would exchange or refund his purchase price of the car. We have been unable to find a suitable car that fits his budget. So as a goodwill gesture we are still willing to refund the purchase price of the car good until sept 30th 2014 upon return of the car and title. Final Consumer Response /* (4200, 17, 2014/09/12) */ (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.) I will except the offer as long as they credit back to my credit card the purchase price $3000.00, the tax and any other fees,Ihave to eat the $125.00 for liscense and title fees. I can meet them 1/2 way south of ******* the 20th .

Additional Notes

Complaint: Purchased a vehicle from Car and Truck Outlet Inc. February from Car and Truck Outlet Inc and been trying to get the exchange of vehicles that **** had agreed to since March.The vehicle was bought sight unseen and the vehicle has safety issues such as rust holes in the frame and other issues.The gas gauge doesn't work, check engine is on,back bumper frame bracket rusted out. The exhaust system needs to be replaced. Rear wiper does not work.This vehicle would not pass a safety inspection in my opinion. I have heard nothing but excuses from them. When we st up a date and time, they never show and always have an excuse. The exchange still hasn't been done and another excuse.
