Additional Notes

Complaint: On 12/28/12 I purchased a 2005 ***** ********** *** Vin# ***************** from Sales Manager ***** ***** at American Auto Wholesalers LLC. As I had poor credit I was given an option of only 2 vehicles that they would provide financing for, this one or an older ***** *******. I chose the ***** as I didn't want a mini van. The Sales Manager told me that the finance company, ****** **********, would only finance me if I purchased a 24 month or 24000 miles warranty at a cost of $1730 which would be included in the financing. I was desperate to purchase a vehicle for work and I had no reason to believe any different because of my credit situation. When I picked the vehicle up several days later as it needed some work performing that was required for safety reasons I found out that ***** ***** no longer worked for them and I took delivery of the vehicle. It wasn't until much later when I was talking to the finance company I found out that they never required me to take out the warranty as a requirement of me being offered the financing. I contacted them via email through the address ***************** to point out I had been lied to at the time I was sold the vehicle and asked for them to fix this and have never heard back from them. The finance company would not help either because they obviously rely on dealerships presenting high interest financing offers to them so they make a lot of money out of their customers.

Desired Settlement: I would like this to either be issued to me including the financing charges for this warranty which was charged at 17.9%apr or they repay the finance company so the amount I owe is reduced accordingly.
