Additional Notes

Complaint: Sale person took money down on promised auto, than two days later tried using bate and switch tactics to put me in same auto for more money. On May 13, 2014 I called Apple Ford Shakopee for a internet pricing on a 2014 Taurus. A salesman named ************* said me could get me the color and interior I wanted from his network of dealerships. He said to come in and put down a deposit of $500.00, which I did. He said that the car would be delivered to the dealership where I could take ownership of it. ***** gave me a copy of the window sticker with a code of EG ******. I signed a credit application and was told that the car would be delivered in a couple days. I agreed to a $4,500.00 dollar down payment and 4.5% financing. The car was a 2014 Taurus with a 3.5 L V6 engine, exterior-Dark side metallic, Interior-Dune leather seating. On May 15th around 3pm. I received a call from ************* stating that the car I thought I was getting had been sold at the same time I was filling out the paperwork. ***** said to me however I can get the same car from outside their network for a little more money. I feel that the sales person and dealer used deceptive practices in getting me to write the down payment check and not delivering on their promise to deliver the car.

Desired Settlement: I feel they should deliver the vehicle they promised or the equivalent.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2014/05/22) */ Mr.*********** In response to complaint 57278846 filed by customer ***** *******, we file the following resolution. Mr. ******* began his online search with our dealership for a specific vehicle that Apple Ford Shakopee was to acquire via "dealer trade" from another dealer. Between the time Mr. ******* placed the vehicle on hold and applied for credit, the vehicle was sold by the original dealer. ************, General Sales Manager has worked with Mr. ******* to sell him the vehicle he desired and at the agreed upon price. Mr. ******* took delivery of the 2014 Ford Taurus desired on Tuesday, May 20, 2014. Thank you for allowing us this opportunity to ensure customer satisfaction. Thank you, ***************** President
