Additional Notes

Complaint: Purchased a 2006 Prius and simultaneously traded 2003 Chevy Trailblazer on 5/30/14. Took car to a few auto repair/body shops for estimates on cosmetic flaws. Was told by 2 separate mechanics that the vehicle appeared to have been wrecked and or severely damaged in the past. This was not disclosed on the Carfax. Called around 6/14/14 to ask for more info about Prius. Was sent detailed service report on all repairs made and noted a broken front axle was replaced among many other things. Was advised by dealer that Carfax doesn't show everything and that they could do nothing more to explain broken axle. First payment was due 7/14/14. By 7/9/14 had not received loan info and called the gentleman who handled financing to inquire. Within 48 hours and with no response called and was eventually connected with sales manager who took payment over phone and apologized saying she would personally rectify the issue. Received payment info within 2 weeks, began making payments. By 8/14/14 received repeated emails regarding a missing power of attorney document from salesman. When further investigated, discovered trade in was sold but the POA form had been misplaced, lost, etc. was informed that finance employee was terminated over said oversight. Sales manager said that they would be willing to take care of some minor cosmetic issues in exchange for our continued difficulty with service and lack of legible warranty info. She agreed to have the used car sales manager contact me to set up a time to meet and discuss replacing possibly one or both bumper covers. Used car sales manager contacts in very hostile manner, yelling, threatening to sue and make us pay fees as well as that his children attend the school where I teach (unsure if this was a threat). Also mentions that we were attempting to hold them "hostage" to get a document they needed? None of prior conversations with sales manager indicated that anything was due other than some type of gesture on BTS's behalf to "make it right" so we continue to consider them for future vehicle purchases. After calming down was told to bring vehicle for inspection and only one bumper cover repair in conjunction with dropping off signed POA form. At appointment POA was given to used car sales manager who says only Wednesdays are available to have car inspected and that I would have to pay cost which was not what I was guaranteed on multiple phone calls with the two managers. When asked what Wednesday would be available, was told next few Wednesdays were bad due to vacation. Asked me to come in and request him in a few weeks and he would see what they could do but ultimately there would be no compensation for poor service nor would any guarantees that he made over phone be honored.

Desired Settlement: Honor at least the promise of a free bumper cover with no labor, only the part or the repair of aforementioned bumper whichever is cheaper.

Business Response:

Ms. ****** came in saw and drove a 2006 Prius that she ended up purchasing. During the process she never made the deal contingent on any work or parts. Her paperwork was held up by the bank due to a form that the bank requested be redone. After the form was redone and the bank funded us we discovered that a Power of attorney form was missing and needed to process her title work. We contacted Ms. ****** to let her know that we needed another form signed by her at that time so requested our sales manager replace a bumper on the car. The sales manager told her we could not do that. She was insisting on getting a new bumper before she would come in and sign the document. I did call her and told her that we had to have the document signed and she then requested that we replace the bumper at that time I told her we could not replace it and that I felt like she was holding us hostage and that I would contact our attorney to get the paper work signed. She then shared her frustration over the paper work. I told her if she brings the car in on a Wednesday I would look at it with a vendor that does minor paint work and if it could be touched up I would take care of it for her. After looking at it touching it up would not be the better solution, repainting would look better. She said she wanted to replace it I got her a price to place it including painted she said she had gotten a cheaper price at ****. She said if I just gave her the bumper she could put it on I said I couldn't do that either. I told her I would get a price for her on just the bumper and she said no she would get one herself. No one ever promised to replace or repaint the bumpers to the Prius. I will still have bumpers touched up for her or help her purchase a new bumper. Thank you for your time with this matter.
