BBB asks advertisers to prove their claims, change ads to make offers more clear to consumers, and remove misleading or deceptive statements.

BBB Letter Grade Scale
Star Rating scale
BBB Customer Review Rating plus BBB Rating is not a guarantee of a business' reliability or performance, and BBB recommends that consumers consider a business' BBB Rating and Customer Review Rating in addition to all other available information about the business. If the BBB Rating is NR then only Customer Reviews are used for the Star Rating.
Read Complaint Details
Complaint: They advertise online that if you print a coupon from their webpage and bring it in and take a test drive, they will give you a $25 gift card, whether you buy anything or not. When you leave the dealership, they say you will receive card in 3 - 4 weeks. For the next two weeks, they called every day, trying to get me to test drive other cars until I told them we bought a Hyundai elsewhere. (Their prices are high) After 4 weeks, I called back to find out what happened to gift card and was told "6 - 8 weeks, and if I do not have it by the 6th week, they can track it." Between the 6th - 10th weeks, I called several times, leaving messages, and no one returned my calls. During the 11th week, I finally reached the salesman who originally helped me, Jose. No longer could he track it but he would make sure I receive it. It has now been 14 weeks, and I still have not received anything.
Desired Settlement: I would like both an apology from the manager who would not return my calls and the gift card.
Our sincere apologies that you feel you did not receive your online $25 gift card. I have attached the proof that it was redeemed on 11/10/14 (one day after you made the issue request on 11/9/14) When our online gift cards are processed, you should have received an email to ****************** with instructions on how to activate the gift card. Our sales associate was incorrect in stating that you will receive the card in 3 to 4 weeks, as we switched to an online deployment on the gift cards earlier in the year.
I appreciate you bringing this to my attention and as a gesture of goodwill have issued you another $25 gift card today. Please check your email as it will have the instructions on how to activate the online card (it is not a physical gift card.)
If you do not receive the email with the gift card activation instructions, please email me at my personal email *************** and I will look into it.
Thank you for your understanding and again, our apologies for any inconvenience this has caused you.
