Additional Notes

Complaint: I purchased a 2006 Dodge magnum from the dealer with 1500 down around August 2015. ***** assured me that she had just put a new engine in and that she had the receipt for new engine on record. Approximately 3 weeks after the purchase of the vehicle, the service engine light came on. I advised ***** about the engine light being on and all she was concerned with was the fact that the car needed to be inspected, in which she had the engine light turned off and charged me a 100.00 for a state inspection. She also advised me that basically the car issue was no longer her problem. The vehicle started to stall and engine shutting off. I had a mechanic take a look at it and he advised me and ***** that the heater hose was not properly attached back when engine work was done causing the heads to crack. I went back and forth with ***** on repairing the car. She advised me that it would cost 2500-3000 to repair. My mother and I went to talk to ***** face to face and she advised me and my mother that she was aware of the vehicle having engine problems. My mother advised her that she couldn't not do that. There are laws to protect consumers from dealers that practice these type of acts. ***** agreed to give me another car and I would pay my tax and title fee 200.00. ***** deliberately removed certain vehicles off the lot, leaving me with the option of 2 vehicles to choose from. Leaving me no choice because i had put a substantial amount of money in the vehicle so i was limited with funds to purchase another car. I went ahead and got another vehicle from her and what do you know. I have another vehicle that has only ran for 4 days and now at a mechanic shop getting diagnostic checks to see what the issue is. I would like ***** to be held accountable for heinous acts conducted toward consumers.

Desired Settlement: That ***** be investigated for her unlawful practices.

Business Response: Dear BBB representative,

Today, Saturday December 26, 2015, I was able to speak with ***** and her mother, ******** about the issues they had with both vehicles.  If need be I can send a follow up
statement as to the entire complaint and conversation, but I hope this will be satisfactory.  ******** and I spent an hour going over every aspect of the complaint and I addressed
all of her concerns.
As to the second car she bought, we were able to get that vehicle here to our shop and determined that it was the fuel pump sending unit that was bad, essentially the fuel gauge
inside the car was receiving a false reading.  Thus, ***** thought she had gas when she did not.  We added fuel to the vehicle, which was empty and it started.  We did order a
fuel pump from a local parts house but it was the wrong one.  We were unable to get the correct fuel pump today, but will get one as soon as we can at no charge to the customer.
During my conversation with ********, I explained the vehicle would continue to run, but the gas gauge was not reliable.  I did fill the car up with gas and advised ***** to add gas
about every 3rd day to make sure it remained full.  Our shop will be closed next week and will reopen on Monday January 4, 2016.  

I advised ******** and ***** that I would be responding to BBB and in turn BBB would contact them to verify everything had been resolved.  They stated that would be
fine.  I feel we parted on extremely good terms, and look forward to doing business with them. 

Consumer Response:  I greatly appreciate the immediate response to this issue, from *******. I thank him for patience and dedication to his customers. We resolved all issues concerning my complaint.
