Complaint: I live in Kempner, TX which is 4 hours from Houston, TX. I went through my bank **** and to purchase a vehicle. I had 100% loan approval and everything to purchase said vehicle from Baker Nissan. I spent Friday (********) negotiating with my salesman via telephone. He called me and asked when I could have THEIR car their (referring to my trade-in). He told me that we had a deal and asked when could I be in. I explained to him that I would be there in the morning because I am 4 hours away and it was already 7pm and I couldn't make it before they closed Friday. I left my house at 7AM Saturday (********)...I even called them and let my salesman know that I was on my way...deal was good and we were all set, I just had to "test drive". I arrived and everything was fine. I test drove the vehicle and was in process of completing the sale as we had agreed...I had already been approved through MY bank. Another salesperson then came in and took the keys to the truck and said he sold the truck to someone else. The Sales *******, **** ****, even said the deal was WRONG but the ******* ******* approved for it to be sold out from underneath me. The ******* *******, ***** ******, said too bad and not his problem "first come first serve". This is VERY shady!! They didn't even offer to pay for the GAS that I WASTED for an 8 HOUR ROUND TRIP! Now I have unnecessary miles on a vehicle that I was going to use as a trade-in. They used this tactic to try and SELL me an inferior vehicle to me for the same price as the original vehicle I was purchasing. My salesman AND the Sales ******* were BOTH shocked that this occurred. The ******* ******* was WAY out of line and was "playing" a "who can I get more money out of GAME." They should be fined for POOR BUSINESS PRACTICES.
Desired Settlement: I think that the dealership should be fined for unsavory business practices! I also think that they should be required to reimburse me for my time, fuel, stress and the unnecessary mileage on my vehicle. $240 for 12 hours @ $20 an hour, $85.00 Fuel, $500 for the unnecessary wear and tear on my vehicle, mileage and my STRESS. For a total of $825.
Business Response: ******* agreed that it was a unforunate situation and never commented that he felt it was an unreasonable resolution. The customer called **** who also informed the customer that although it was unfortunate that it sometimes happens when you have multiple people on with an appointment on the same vehicle. The online complaints can stand and we are satisfied they we made an effort to resolve this complaint. What is unforunate is that a reputable dealership must suffer from a customer's unfounded and unreasonable complaints. The customers version of the events are simply untrue. I am now going to give thanks for the wonderful employees that I have that must deal with customers who have unrealstic expectations and personal agendas that question the integrity of a business that has emphatically done the right thing under the circumstances.
Better Business Bureau:
I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID *******, and have determined that this proposed action would not resolve my complaint. For your reference, details of the offer I reviewed appear below.
We are no longer engaging in this matter with the dealership. There is no resolution to be made and now we are being personally defamed by implying that we are telling untruths and having a personal agenda! Nothing in our complaint has been made to be untrue and there is no personal agenda either. We even declined the $100 gift card and said an apology from the General Manager would be more acceptable because it wasn't about money it was the principle of the matter. They declined to do so.
Yes, **** did say that these things sometimes happen and are unfortunate but they in no way approved of the "treatment" we received and they also said that their department would make note of it and they need to hear complaints like this. This whole matter is very stressful and we don't want anymore dealings with the dealership. We simply wanted to file a complaint with the BBB. Now I feel this has turned into mud-slinging which is completely unnecessary or professional. If the BBB feels there are OR are not grounds for a complaint, we are 100% understanding in the matter.

Complaint: I purchased a 2003 Yukon XL on 12/03/11 with an extented warranty. I cancelled the warranty on 3/01/12. I paid $1500.00 for the warranty and only got back $835.00. All I am asking is too see something in writing on how they prorated my refund. I have talked to *******, ***** ** ,**** *****, and asked to speak to the general ,left him a message and never called me back. And there is no sense to ask to speak to the owner because I think he is the general manager. Now they say they treat their customers like family, but with a family like this who needs enemies , all they do is pass the back to one another and ignored my calls.
Desired Settlement: I would like to see something in writing on how they prorate refunds on warranty cancellations.
