Complaint: I already have BBB working on a complaint with this company relating to a wrongful repossession of a Jeep this is a sepperate deal altogether. On 3/28/15 I purchased a 2001 GMC truck from Super Shopper this time my husband was there , we did not use the but here pay here we were fiananced through Lobel . While looking at the truck with the sales manager *** my husband noticed the truck we were interested in had 3 tires that were well below the legal ware bar and was told by *** that it was a perfectly legal way to sell a vehicle , we got inside the truck and started the motor and my husband James noticed the ABS light was on as well as the brake light indicating some sort of brake failure and again we were told by *** that it is a perfectly legal way to sell a truck . *** went on ti say that even though it is legal the compant policy is to replace the illegal tires and to fix any brake issue that might have . We decided to move forward with the purchase *** and one of the owners were very impressed with interior work I did on the Jeep we bought from them and asked if I would do some work on a car for them I agreed to do it for $1000.00 to go towards the down payment of the GMC. We went in the office to complete the sale of the 2001 GMC and asked *** for something saying they would fix the brakes and tires he said that since it was company policy that would not be needed . We did the paper work signed the contracts and finished the deal . Super Shopper refused to make any of the repairs to the truck and since we could not afford to fix brakes and tires and it was not safe to drive we returned the truck to lobel the fianance company . On the sales contract for the 01 GMC contract #**** on line 6D Deferred down payment it says $0.00 line 6G cash it says $2000.00 and total down $2000.00 . We gave $1000.00 in cash down and have a signed statement from the sales manager *** allowing $1000.00 as a deferred down for interior work .I have all copies with signitures and was told this is contract fraud
Desired Settlement: Since they lied on a legal contract and after several promises refused to fix the truck we would like a full refund and think they should have to pay the truck off from Lobel since we would have never bought the truck had they told us the truth . In late June we notifed Super Shopper that we would look at legal ways of taking care ofthis since they ignore all our attemps and then 16 days later they wrongfully and illegally repossess our jeep .

Complaint: I purchased a 1988 Jeep Wrangler from Super Shopper on 10/29/2014 when I took the vehicle home to show my husband he noticed that some of the smog parts were missing and disconnected he also noticed that it was missing 5 lug or wheel nuts that hold the wheels on and the seatbelts were not operative my husband James sent me back to the dealer to show them so they could make the repairs I was told by the salesman *** that at the price I paid Super Shopper would not be making any repairs and he said it was legal to sell the Jeep in this condition . My husband and i started investigating there claims and we posted a negative review on there web site we were right away called by ***** a partner in the dealership I do believe we went down the next day to speak with ***** who was very apologetic and even though they still would not make the repairs ***** said taht since they were not only the dealer but also the lender he would knock off two payments for our trouble we then asked him if we could use those free payments at a latter date ***** happily agreed to our request , skip for ward a few months my husband looses his job we call and ask to use our free payments which would cover May and June 2015 payments . We have a seperate legal issue regarding a 2001 GMC and Super Shopper is very aware we are taking legal action against them and now all of a sudden they repossess the Jeep Wrangler claiming we are behind two payments , the same two payments ***** said he would knock off . Not only do they repossess the Jeep when we were not even late with payment they wont give us a itemized inventory list like the law states they must and because we had just sold two motorcycles to pay bills inside the center console was $4600 in cash from the sale we hadnt had the chance to take the money out before they took it because we were not comfortable walking around with that much cash . We have on several times called , emailed and twice went to the dealership and we cant get any answeres the owner **** will not res
Desired Settlement: I want the Jeep back that we were not late on , we absolutely want our $4600 in cash back and we think they should have to answer for the illegal and unethical way they conduct business .
customer was over 60 days late, we try calling her she never respond. on July 6 we received a notice of storage vehicle(22852 cvc ) that the vehicle was involved in a hit and run and it was towed to a local storage. we call the storage and they said they had the vehicle since July 3rd 2015 and we had to pay over 750, dollars for storage inclining towing it to their facility. so we send 2 employees to pick up the vehicle from Orland, CA to Chester CA. we also mail a the customer a break down of the total amount due, she never call or mail us to try to solve the issue the only thing she is doing is sending nasty emails and coming with weird thing about the vehicle been bad and missing lug nuts etc. and that they claim they left $4,800.00 in cash in the glove box.....also who would leave $4,800 in cash on a vehicle after a hit and run????????????
I am rejecting this response because:We recieved on 7/12/2015 a certified letter from Super Shopper claiming they have repossessed the vehicle in question claiming $825.00 in repossession fees and $450.00 in transportation the notice that was sent certified mail was dated 7/08/2015 and post marked 7/08/2015 saying the vehicle would be sold in a private sale on 7/22/2015 giving 14 days notice not the 15 days the law requires , Super Shopper even though we asked repeatedly never would give us a list of the itemized personal belongings as the law requires .
Business Response: We received a notice from CHP notifying us that the 1988 jeep wrangler was impound on July 3rd 2015 due to a hit and run, few days later a person came in asking for a title for the same jeep wrangler, claiming that he purchase the vehicle in cash from ****** ********** and he was told that the jeep wrangler was paid in full. And due to the hit and run the vehicle was impounded and stored away. We contact the lake Almanor towing and, they requested current registration and proof of ownership. So we drove to lake Almanor towing and paid the Hugh fee. We return the vehicle to our facility and whiting 24 hours later we send a register letter informing ****** ********** of the total amount due. Customer was also over 60 days late ( no payments for two months) ****** ********* send over 10 emails, non of them requested a payoff or solve the issue her only solution is to give her a Free Title and $4,500 cash.
I am rejecting this response because:On June 24 2015 I sent Super Shopper a email ( I sent copies of this and all emails last week ) telling them that I was going to sue them over the contract fraud and the illegal condition in which they sold me the 2001 *** truck also in the same email I made mention of the shut up money they gave me about the Jeep condition at the time of sale ( shut up money referred to the 2 payment coupons) and I went on to say to avoid going to court and being sued if they, the car lot would give me the title to the 88 Jeep Wrangler and a receipt saying I owed them nothing and $1,750.00 I would settle out of court and drop the whole thing . In there June 25 2015 responce ( the only one to date ) they make no mention of the " late payments " in fact to this date I have received nothing from them no emails , no statement in the mail , no phone calls nothing never any mention from Super Shopper about the so called late payments untill they wrongfully and I believe illegally repossessed the Jeep .

Complaint: My husband ( a100% disabled US Marine) purchased a 2006 ***** Ram from Super Shopper Auto sales in Orland, Ca in January of 2012. He paid about 90% of the total cost of the truck that day, and financed the remaining balance with the dealership. A hand printed coupon book was given to him to send along with each payment. It only took a few months before the truck was paid off in full. Once we sent the last payment and requested the title, we were told it was on the way. After a few weeks with no title, we called and they told us that their DMV person, ***, would be who we needed to call. After several days of calling *** and leaving messages, we were told that the truck had been purchased in Pennsylvania and that they were waiting for the title to be sent from that state. Big red flag..... How can a dealership sell a vehicle to someone when they don't yet have a title for it? They assured us that there were no problems and that we would get the title. After about a month, we finally got the title. Fast forward to Dec. of 2014. My husband and I relocate from Ca to Mo. We go to register the truck in our new state and it shows Super Shopper Auto sales as lien holder! I paid $91.46 to send for a rush title and remove them as lien holders only to have DMV return my paperwork ( but keep my money) with a note stating that Super Shopper Auto Sales needs to release the lien themselves, either by notarized letter or form 227. I have been calling daily for weeks. I have had family call and even go to the dealership. When I do talk to someone, I am told I need to talk to *** ( who refuses to return calls) or that this is my problem and I need to make a trip back to Ca to physically get my paperwork from them. This is our only vehicle, the tags are now expired, we can't register it anywhere until Super Shopper releases their interest. Each day that goes by our fees keep adding up. I am appalled that this dealership is still in business and even more infuriated that they would treat a veteran in this manner.
Desired Settlement: I want Super Shopper Auto sales to release the lien on our vehicle. They need to send a notarized letter on their letterhead by overnight mail to me so that I can send for a rush title and get our vehicle registered. Ideally I would also like them to reimburse any fees I have incurred over this ordeal. If they do not resolve this matter immediately, legal action will be taken.
Business Response: the customer call and spooked to on of the sales person regarding her issue, she move out of the state and she lost her title (she was trying to apply for a duplicate title with DMV) but she didn't had any luck. she call and ask is we could help her with that, we agree to help her out, and we had to verified that she did pay off the vehicle and that she was the legal owner, also we had to call a notary and fill out a form and we mail it to the customer it took over a week for the whole process. I understand that she wanted every thing over night but it does not work like that. is not the simple..
I am rejecting this response because: while I appreciate that Super Shopper Auto Sales did finally send me the paperwork that I needed, the process took much longer than one week. It was more than a month of me calling, family calling and it wasn't until I reported them to the BBB and DMV that I actually got a response. Each time I called, I was always given the run around and told to call and speak to this person or another person or call another day. I was given many excuses. The truck had been paid off years ago, there was no reason it should have taken so long to release liability. Their lack of professionalism has cost me hundreds of dollars and a plethora of frustration. So again.... Thank you for finally coming through with paperwork, but please do not insult me by stating I was uninformed and demanding too much. I did ask you to overnight the notarized release, but you opted to hold onto it for another week before putting it in the regular mail. My trucks tags are now expired for over one month and I had to spend another $100.00 to DMV to rush a title to me. Once that finally arrives, I am facing more fines in this state due to the expired registration. If you all had any integrity, you would offer to cover some of these expenses, but at this point I am just relieved that you released your lien.

Complaint: Hi I recently purchased a 2001 Toyota Rav 4 from Super Shopper Auto sales in Orland California. The salesman were friendly but very aggressive in their sales tactics but I purchased the vehicle anyway because of it's size and fuel economy. They assured me that it was in perfect condition because they had done a 112 point inspection and it had passed smog. Well after getting it home I noticed a loud screeching coming from the engine compartment that was barely audible at first but grew with more intensity. I had it diagnosed after the idle started getting rough at stop lights and it turned out to be the idle air control motor and throttle body. The mechanic at the shop said not to worry about it yet and to call super shopper. I did so and the gentleman on the other line was rude and barely understandable but I made out the fact that there was no mechanic available for a few weeks. I proceeded to make an appt. They did not hold true because when I arrived there was no mechanic available. I have let this problem continue but a few days later I noticed a blue smoke emanating from the exhaust on first start up which was diagnosed as broken valve seals which will go unnoticed at a smog check but will effect emissions and engine life. I would like super shopper to reconcile these issues by either fixing one of the problems at no charge or take a considerable discount off of my bill. I am spending upwards of 5600$ on this vehicle and it has almost 200,000 miles on it already. I feel like I could have gotten a much better vehicle somewhere else. I am the father of a 3 year old son and work a full time job I can't afford to be spending huge amounts of money on this vehicle when i am still making payments on it. I hope this will be resolved in the best manner for all parties involved as soon as possible
Desired Settlement: I would like Super Shopper to either replace the bad parts on my vehicle at no charge to me personally or take a considerable amount of money off of my bill so I may have the means to get the vehicle fixed myself. Or get me into a different vehicle worth the same amount or a little more.
Business Response: The consumer came and we let him know that when you buy a car with 200,000 miles on it things tend to break down here and there from wear and tear. I offered the consumer a program that we have which gives them a three year warranty for the car. The program works where the consumer brings the car to us if it needs repair and we cover 50% of the bill. I am now waiting for the consumer to call us and set up a date. I thought the complaint had been resolved.

Complaint: We paid off our truck we purchased at Super Shopper Auto Sales in July of 2013. It was privately financed and they held the title until we paid it off. I called **** in July after our last payment was made, he told me he saw that the last payment was paid and would send us title. I gave him our home address to have it sent to, but it was never sent. Its almost been 6 months, still no title. I call all the time leaving messages for Mike or someone who can help me and no one ever calls me back. I just want the title sent to me.
Desired Settlement: Title to be sent to our home address. *** ********* ****** ******* ** *****
Business Response: Company states the title was sent to the address provided by the customer on the credit application form. Apparently the title was not delivered and was returned to the DMV. After the title is issued to the customer by DMV we can not control it. We advised the customer to return to the DMV to retrieve the title, and the customer now has the title. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Consumer states that they received their title and the complaint has been resolved.
