Complaint Detail(s)

6/21/2016 Problems with Product/Service | Read Complaint Details

Additional Notes

Complaint: I bought a 2011 ***** ***** ******* ******** Coupe from this dealership on 3/15/2016. I asked the car salesman if the car had been in a wreck and if the original paint was on the vehicle. He said it had not been in an accident and it was all the original paint. **** is his name. He then agreed to have the car shipped to me by Friday. Friday came around and I called the dealership. I got passed around to 4 different people and finally a man named **** ******** answered my call. He said that the car was not ready yet. He said that the car was not on the truck headed to Texas. **** had said the vehicle was on the truck for delivery. So when I finally received the car on Monday I noticed there was a tape line and dust coming off of the vehicle door on the passenger side. This raised a red flag. I drove the car for three days. On the third day I was backing out of a parking spot and I felt a huge snap and the A/C went out simultaneously. I had my 8 month old in the car and my 2 year old in the car. It was SCORCHING hot outside. I then had the car towed on a trailer to the nearest certified ***** ***** dealership where the manager called me the next day and asked me if I was aware that the car had been in an accident. I said I was not aware of that. He then took photos and videos of the paint coming off of the vehicle and dust from the sanding down of the vehicle that was behind the passenger door. I have the pictures and videos to prove this. I then contacted the owner *** ******* and *** Abass and they said that I must have wrecked the car and my kids didn't have any distress. They said they will not refund my money or take the car back. So now I am out $300,000 with an unsafe car that can only be sold at wholesale value. I have tried numerous times reaching out to the owners to no avail. They said I was lying. I looked them up on google and they have numerous pending lawsuits against them. They have been sued so many times for the lemon law. I just want my money back.

Desired Settlement: For them to come and pick the car up and refund my 264,249.27 dollars. Not to mention I spent 17,000 in taxes on the car. I didn't even ask them for the tax money to be refunded to me. I merely want a refund and for this nightmare to be over with. PLEASE HELP!

Business Response:

The car she bought from our company, prior to her buying it, underwent thorough Certified Vehicle Inspection by a Master Certified *****-***** technician and was given a Provenance 100,000-mile warranty.


I have written and verbal recordings from Mr. ****** which were conflicting and her story kept changing.


However, we re-purchased the vehicle from her and have since re-sold it to a satisfied customer.


Thank you,

*** *******

Additional Notes

Complaint: Went to the ******* Used Car Department to buy a 2012 ***** ******* *******. We were told all used cars go through a thorough inspection. This led us to believe that all cars would include two keys. Plus I would say its common business practice when buying high priced used vehicles that the sale would include two keys and if it didn't that would be disclosed upfront. I would also expect this from a place that sells Bentleys. We test drove the car and during the test drive we noticed and commented on the fact the mats were brand new. During negotiations they removed the mats and failed to tell us that. They also failed to disclosed the fact only 1 key was available. After the payment was made and documents signed. They did only provided us with 1 key and we noticed that the mats mysteriously vanished. We called back later and they said they would look for both items. After several calls they told us they would only buy a new key and we would have to pay for the programming of the key, but they would not give us the mats even though they were present during the test drive. I feel this is a classic non-disclosure of material facts during the sale and a classic bait-n-switch.

Desired Settlement: Provide us fully programmed key and floor mats.

Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID ********, and find that this resolution is satisfactory to me. My wife will be contacting the dealership to finalize the agreement.

Additional Notes

Complaint: The car was sold as a non-smoking car. I had 3 seperate professionals in the auto business (sales, service manager, odor service technitian) who all confirmed this was a smokers car. I paid $300 to have the car treated and internal filters replaced. There was grease on 3 seperate areas of the car, presumably from the dealer contracted delivery service. Mold was growing on the carpet on the passenger side as the carpet was wet. Finally, the front tires were dry rotted so bad it would not pass state inspection, required to register the vehicle. None of these

Desired Settlement: I am seeking reimbursement for the costs to fix the above items. I am happy to provide the detailed bill for the above issues.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 12, 2014/07/21) */ We have pulled the records and are currently investigating the matter.

Additional Notes

Complaint: On ********* 27,2013 I purchased a 2006 **** ** and an Extended Warranty from ******* ****** Vehicles. On ******* 04,2013 I took my vehicle to get serviced for an issue covered under the extended warranty I bought. I was told by the repair shop Complete Car Repair (XXX-XXX-XXXX) that I did not have an extended warranty. I called my extended warranty company Performance 1st and was told by them that I in deed did not have an extended warranty. I called the finance representative *** ********* at ******* Luxury Vehicles from who I bought the vehicle and warranty from. He told me he would call them and get back to me. He called me back a few days later saying they didnt have my contract. He then told me he would get it fixed so that my vehicle may be serviced. Well now its over 4 months and I still dont have an extended warranty. I've been told by Mr. ********* for the last 4 months that he's working on it and my vehicle has not been serviced. I've been in contact with him every week for the last 4 months with no results.

Desired Settlement: To have my car fixed for the services needed, financial restitution from ********* till present date and to have ******* fo fill the contract of the purchase for the extended warranty.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 7, 2014/02/24) */ *** ********* contacted the customer and resolved the issue
