Additional Notes

Complaint: I was interested in driving to Chicago to look at a vehicle and asked the dealership to hold it for the following day. The sales person asked for my credit card number to hold the vehicle and it was given to them so they could send a authorization to me. After reading the authorization that said my deposit would not be refunded I called the sales person back and said I would not sign that document. A charge was made anyways and I was promised a refund for months and months. After the refund was not made I contacted our bank regarding the purchase and they said that too much time had passed *** I should file a civil complaint/lawsuit. I would simply like my $500.00 returned as their practices are deceitful, if my deposit is not returned I will file a civil lawsuit against the salesman, the manager and the corporation.

Desired Settlement: $500.00 refund

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2014/05/27) */ Contact Name and Title: **** E. ****** Contact Phone: XXXXXXXXXX Contact Email: ******* As we explained to this customer, we do not take deposits. We take down payments. Taking vehicles offline is costly and expensive unless we are sure they are sold. It is very costly to advertise, condition, photograph and prepare vehicles for sale. Taking a car offline is costly. We are very upfront with our clients as to our processes and why leaving money down is Non-Refundable. We are NEVER deceitful in any way since we are always upfront with our processes and explain this fully to our clientele. However, in order to keep this client happy, we will be refund his $500. He can reach us at XXX-XXX-XXXX. **** Chicago Cars Direct Owner/Partner XXX-XXX-XXXX Initial Consumer Rebuttal /* (2000, 7, 2014/05/27) */ (The consumer indicated he/she ACCEPTED the response from the business.) I spoke with **** and he has given me his word a check will be mailed to me for $500.00. I will let you know when that has been received. Thank you for your assistance in this matter.
