We are willing to bring Mr. ******'s vehicle in and honour any service that was agreed to on his contract and bill of sale. We have brought Mr. ******'s vehicle in on other occasions when he had concerns. ***************************************************************************************************************************************************************** If Mr. ****** would like to call me I would be more then happy to discuss any issues he may be having and I will do my best to rectify any problems that he is having. My ****** has not contacted me personally nor was I aware that he was having continuing issues.

Final Consumer Response
I would be more than happy to trade in this vehicle for a more reliable vehicle.

Final Business Response
We are not going to cancel the contract on the current vehicle. We are willing to repair anything that falls within his 30 day guarantee or that would be covered under the warranty that he signed for. If he is concerned about speaking with someone that will get it done he is more then welcome to phone the manager **** ******* at anytime and I would be more then happy to answer and questions he has and make sure that the work promised gets done. I have not received any messages or anything from him so again not getting through by calling to the dealership is something I am just learning about. If you would like Mr. ****** can call my personal cell phone to arrange the repairs and that way he can be assured that I will pick up so we can set an appointment and get this taken care of. My personal cell number is XXX-XXX-XXXX. We are more then willing to stand behind any guarantees that were given and would like to resolve this and make sure Mr ****** is comfortable in the vehicle he chose. We are not interested in cancelling the contract though and will not be taking the vehicle back unless Mr ****** is interested in trading it in.

Complaint Resolution: Company resolved the complaint issues. The consumer acknowledged acceptance to BBB.
