Presented a higher MSRP on the vehicle at start of negotiation as the vehicle was ordered. After the sale, actual MSRP was actually $195 less.
I asked explicitly for a copy of the actual window sticker MSRP. I was denied that request but assured the written MSRP of $38,700 was accurate. We negotiated an agreed price using that number and upon receiving the car after the fact, the actual sticker MSRP was $38,505. I have called numerous times since and assured they would reimburse me the difference I have paid plus sales tax. Date of sale was 30 July 2014 and yet to receive my money back. Very poor customer service. Unethical mis-representation of the actual MSRP. With sales tax paid, they owe me $208.65 by my calculation and I have the documents to prove this s

Desired Settlement
I should get consideration for this ridiculous delay, but simply want my money back that was overcharged by false MSRP at negotiation and sale.

Consumer Response
(The consumer indicated he/she ACCEPTED the response from the business.)
Issue was resolved with reimbursement check received as promised, however, very late. The issue was in the MSRP representation prior to negotiation as both Jared and Stuart were involved at that time. MSRP was misrepresented completely on the vehicle that we based negotiations. Please re-read the bbb complaint or call for further discussion if needed. Again, issue has since been resolved just after this BBB complaint was originally submitted. Wesley Chapel Mazda was not timely at all in their after the sale customer service approach even after several calls into the store. As a long-time Mazda owner, I could not recommend Wesley Chapel Mazda going forward. Thanks.

Mazda did a repair (noise still accuring)as a favor, instead of warranty. When I take it in they say they cant duplicate the noise, which is incorrect
I purchased a new 2011 Mazda tribute from Mazda of Wesley Chapel in April of this year. A few weeks later I started having multiple issues. But the main issue Im concerned about is a schreeching noise when doing the following: going over bumps/speedbumps,getting in/out of vehicle, if vehicle is moved from front to back or pushing down on it.Its affecting the way the vehicle drives as well. I took it in, I believe it was the second or third time i took it in that they replaced a donut exhaust gasket as a favor. They replied with "they couldnt duplicate the noise", thats why they didnt charge my warranty like they should have. The technician i was with duplicated the noise after a few minutes of me explaining to him in person. My question is why did they say incorrect information and not charge my warranty? The noise is still accuring and when I take it in they say the same thing each time, "Its a V4, its suppose to do that, and make these noises" They also say they cant duplicate the noise. Im not sure why I am getting ran around, but my vehicle is getting worse, its making more horrible sounds and driving bad. Its at the point of its unsafe to drive, but Mazda says they cant find nothing wrong with it. I feel a brand new car should not be having the issues/sounds that this one is having. I do not have many records, but I could give you more personal info so you can look at the records yourself if need be and possible.

Desired Settlement
I would like my vehicle to be properly inspected to find the underlying problem and have it correctly fixed without having any issues that I have told them about. Or I would like to be equally traded out of my vehicle to something similar since they no longer make tributes. I would prefer to have it properly fixed, I dont have a problem with my vehicle. Its just that it has multiple issues and its unsafe.

Business' Initial Response
We have inspected your vehicle numerous times and not found any mechanical faults, what was the outcome from the inspection you had at Ferman Mazda in Brandon last week?

Please understand that Mazda USA would cover any issues with the vehicle at no cost to you under their warranty. Your vehicle is operating as designed. We are open to any suggestions.
