Read Complaint Details
Complaint: We went to the Larry H Miller Honda dealership to look at a 1999 Chevrolet Blazer advertised on their website. We ultimately purchased this vehicle. During the time of negotiation we repeatedly told them that we were senior citizens and that we couldn't afford to purchase a vehicle that would require a lot of repairs. We noted that the drivers door didn't close properly and that a handle was missing from the drivers side front seat, both of these things we agreed to take care of after we purchased the vehicle. Then we went on a test drive, which was round 3-5 miles. During the drive we heard a loud sound, which we attributed to the vehicles new tires. We mentioned this to the salesman,and he agreed that new tires are often louder than they are after they have been driven for awhile. It turns out that the loud sound is the front wheel bearings, which will have to be replaced at a cost of around $466.00. Also, on our test drive it was pointed out to us that we were getting a full tank of gas. This turned out not to be true, as the gas gauge doesn't work properly and by the next day we discovered we were almost out of gas while driving in the mountains above Cougar, WA. I coasted down the mountain and made it to a gas station. Had we run out in the mountains we would not have had any way to call for help as cell phones are not usable in that area and there are few people around. As senior citizens we would have had to walk many miles to reach help. The repair for the gas gauge will be around $800.00. Finally, on the same trip, as the one where we almost ran out of gas, I noticed that whenever we went over a bump the automobile would sway side to side. One time, as we came around an unexpectedly tight corner, where there was also a flaw in the road, the car leaned way over and I was barely able to keep the car on the highway. It felt like it was going to flip over on it's side. We since have learned that the shock absorbers are shot. This will cost an additional $600.00. NOTE: Odometer read 95,138 miles at time of purchase. We were told that Larry H Miller had safety inspected the vehicle, but they did not disclose any of the issues listed above. We feel at the very least they should have revealed these problems, since we are senior citizens on a very limited budget. As I stated before, we revealed to them a minimum of at least 3 times, that we couldn't afford costly repairs. We believe we were duped into believing there were not any big expenses in relation to this vehicle. Since the purchase my husband called numerous times and then finally went to the dealership when he didn't get a good response. They ultimately offered to pay for half of the wheel bearing issue, which amounts to $233.00, but their overall response was that they will loose money if they make any other repairs on the vehicle, so they will not make them.
Desired Settlement: We want all of the problems not revealed to us at the time of purchase to be repaired, as we cannot afford to pay for them. If they don't want to repair the vehicle we want them to take the vehicle and give us our money back. NOTE: We paid top Kelly Blue Book price for the automobile, which is $4,258.00 (we paid $4,250.00). Also, during the negotiation time they showed us what they said was the Kelly Blue Book value for our vehicle - $5,300.00+. Obviously that was not the truth either. (I was afraid to go back and add the "NOTE" to the complaint, because I didn't know what would happen if I tried to open it again).
