Problems with Product/Service
Read Complaint Details
Complaint: We paid for the car on December 15th, 2014, we paid in full with a check. We were given paperwork indicating the sales transaction and the seller never submitted the title transfer paperwork because and I quote "it wasn't a priority." He said that the seller had 25 days to turn in the paperwork but that if he informed us he didn't have to turn it in right away, that it would be like an extension and that he would get to it when he got to it. I talked to the DMV they said he had 30 days to turn in the title transfer, no extension exists, and that they would do their own investigation. He said to report him if we had a problem, considering his illegal dealing with paperwork I don't want this to happen to anyone else so I am reporting it.
Desired Settlement: I want the title transfer paperwork turned in immediately.
Business Response: At the time this complaint was filed, February 2nd, the paperwork had been submitted, which the customer knew because she called us to confirm this on Tuesday January 27th. The paperwork for this transaction was complete on Monday January 26th. In regards to the rest of the complaint, I talked with her father, her and her husband and told them all the same thing. This particular transaction had been overlooked due to the fact I was out sick for a week and the MDX was my finance's. I had been lax about getting the title from her, which was my fault. I explained that because it was my fiance, I had been slow in getting the title from her and apologized. I never said processing their paperwork was not a priority, I said getting the title from my fiance had not been a priority and it was a mistake I apologized for. The husband called us on Thursday January 22nd and threatened to file a complaint against us if the paperwork was not turned in by Monday January 26th. I explained to him we would have the title on Friday evening the 23rd, the DMV was not open on Saturday and I was out of town on Monday so it would be submitted on Tuesday. In order to prevent further problems, I brought someone in to process their paperwork on Monday despite the fact we were closed. Everything was processed and in the DMV computer Monday and despite this, they filed a complaint a week after things were turned in anyway. I made the mistake here, no one else in my company was involved or responsible, I am sorry for the way it turned out and sorry our customer felt the need to file a complaint with the DMV and BBB despite our efforts to meet their requests.
Business Response: Our customer knew the paperwork had been submitted when she filed this complaint. She called to confirm receipt on January 27th, we confirmed it was submitted on Monday January 26th. We do not argue with the fact it took longer than it should have, I took responsibility for that, we did however do everything we said we would in order to meet their requests and they filed a complaint anyway. Attached is a copy of the DMV form showing the submitted date. (MDX DMV Doc.pdf)
