Additional Notes

Complaint: My wife and I went into Toyota of Gladstone on December 7th 2014. We went in to look at possibly purchasing a new vehicle. We test drove a new Corolla with the salesperson Ron. When we went back in to discuss numbers we told them what we were looking for as far as pricing goes. We said we wanted to have a car payment under $300 for the Corolla that we had chosen. He initially said that it would be easy and no problem to do that. He recommended leasing it to have cheaper payments, which we had never thought of doing before. He said that it was the way to go so we trusted him. He came back moments later asking us if we could handle $350 dollar payments. It was an idea we weren't keen on. He said that it was the best possible payment we could get for the car so, again, we trusted him. We asked if there was any way to negotiate a better price which he denied the possibility and was very direct about there being nothing better they could do. We went into finance to finish paperwork, where I asked if there was any way she knew of to lower the price. The finance manager swore up and down that there were no other options for us. The MSRP of the vehicle we purchased is around $23,000 after looking through our lease agreement I realized that we are paying for our lease based on a valuation of our car at over $25,000. I have spoken to many other dealerships since then and they all have said that we were taken advantage of because of my wife and I's age and inexperience buying new vehicles. They suggested we make a BBB complaint due to how egregious our payments are. They were somewhat shady and acted like they were hiding information from us the whole entire time and put uncomfortable amounts of pressure on us to take the deal because it was "the best we could get".

Desired Settlement: All we wold like to have happen from this is for the dealership to admit fault and for them to purchase back the lease that they sold us in a predatory fashion. If they are willing to buy back the lease and take the car back we will seek no more resolution in the matter.

Business Response: I am in phone conversations with customer to resolve concern.  Will update when completed.

Complaint: We purchased a 2007 Honda odyssey on 10/24/14. We were promised a full set of mounted studded snow tires by the salesman. We were to call and come pick them up a few days later. The salesman called my wife back after she tried to arrange the pick up, only to tell her the tires and wheels had been sold on craigslist and we were out of luck. I called the sales manager to complain and he said that they would have to deliver on the promise.I called again and talked to an assistant sales manager. He said he'd have ********* call us to work it out.we still haven't heard back from *********.

Desired Settlement: I would like a full set of mounted studded snow tires like I was promised.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 7, 2014/12/05) */ I contacted **** and applogized about the tires. We thought the customer that traded the vehicle was bring us the tires. We stated to **** that he could have these tires that we thought we were getting. The tires were sold on Craigs list by the prior customer. I offered **** a complimentary detail to be used in the future. He accepted our offer. We feel this issue has been resolved. Thanks ****

Additional Notes

Complaint: I was contacted about a truck that I have for sale from the dealership. I told them every detail single detail about the truck and was told that they could come close to the price I was asking. When I took the truck into the dealership they told me that they would only offer 16k for the truck, when in the prior discussion I was told 22k. I realize that there is always a little wiggle room but even they said the truck looked great. They were simply trying to get me into the dealership. This was a huge waste of my time.

Desired Settlement: Written apology and compensation for my time and mileage wasted going over to their dealership.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2014/03/13) */ I contacted customer and appologized. I sent him a check to make up for his time and fuel. He was ok with our resolution. I will also follow up with our procedures to purchase vehicles.
