Complaint Category: None of the Above - Credit, Billing or Collection Complaint Issue

Complaint: Took in automobile to get it o turn over. I gave them a $500 limit to correct the problem. They called and suggested that I get $1200 woth of work to ensure the operability of the automobile. I agreed to the charge of $1295. When I went to pick up the car, they told me that I owed $2500. I told them that I had agreed to $1295, so they had to remove everything over the $1295 charge. The person said that his mechanics had worked very hard on the car, so I would like it. I told him thank you but I could not afford the additional work. He said that he could reduce the charge to $1800, but I would have to sign a document to ensure that the received the addtion $505. I did not pay the $505, and they are suing me for this cost five years later. I will contest this charge, but they should not be able run amok with the chages on a car without a customer's signature.

Re: ***** *** **** Case #:XXXXXXXX

To whom it may concern:
Because of the time that has lapsed the comments are not familiar. The only thing we have is the signatures and the bills; we have sent notices and copies of bills and were ignored. We do not like to go this route with customers hence the time it took to finally send out to get judgment. If we had had contact earlier we might have gone about it differently. I still would like to help the customer; I will need to speak with our attorney about the judgment.

Sorry for any inconvenience this has caused. Any further information please contact me at (XXX) XXX-XXXX Ext: ****

Additional Notes

Complaint Category: Sales presentation used dishonest sales practices

Complaint: I recently purchased a 2013 (one owner car) Chevrolet Camaro 1LT from Baydo Chevrolet. Although I did not ask for the Bluebook Price, I did ask the Sales Person how much the vehicle was. The Sales Person quoted me $34,000. When I told him I was not paying that much, he said we would be able to work something out. After driving the vehicle, I followed him into the Dealership. I proceeded to tell him what my limit was and what I would like my monthly payment to be for 60 months with $5,000 down from my credit card. I was in and out of the Dealership within 45 minutes. I even told them and thanked them for making this so painless. I now know why it was quick and painless. After doing some research with another dealership for a possible tradein, I was told that brand new, the car only cost $21,500. My sales envoice from Baydo shows $30,000 with $5,000 down for a total Finance of alittle over $25,000. I know I shold have asked for the ****** **** **** price, but I thought I could believe the saleperson of the price he told me of $34,000. He also stated that I was getting the car cheaper due to a Liquidation Sale. In my mind, and by his quote of the original price, I thought I was getting a good deal and that Baydo Chevrolet was in fact a Customer caring organization. This whole experience to my is unethical Sales Practices. When I called the Sales Manager to voice my complaint, he flat out said that he feels that they did nothing wrong. A $21,500 car brand new was sold to me for $30,000 (with $5,000) from my credit card as down payment for a total fianance of a little over $25,000.

Initial Business Response
I feel horrible that Mr. ***** feels like he got a bad deal. If I had paid the amount Mr.***** "thinks" he paid for a vehicle costing what he "thinks" it cost, I may be a little upset as well.

The exact price Mr. ***** paid for the Camaro he purchased is as follows:

Purchase price: 27,393.97
Lic. and Doc Free: 378.50
Sales Tax: 2246.31

Grand Total: 30018.78 including Tax and Lic.

He paid 5000.00 down so his amount financed was 25018.78 with payments of 450.00 for 60 mo.

He is mistaken about the original cost of the vehicle. I have attached a copy of the dealers invoice which shows considerably more than the $21500.00 some other dealer told him it cost.

Did Mr. ***** pay more than book value for the car? Yes. But the book is only a guide not a value "bible". Market conditions drive the prices and Camaros were extremely hard to get new or used at the time. We paid over book value just to get the car. Mr. ***** agreed to pay the the market price. I feel he purchased a great car for a fair price and we will stand behind it with our service department for as long as he owns it.

I just paid $3.00 for a bottle of water at the ******** fair even though I could buy a case of it at Safeway for $1.88. It was convenient and I was thirsty.

Again, I'm sorry he feels he got a raw deal but when you look at the actual numbers and know the truth about the original cost, it's not as it seems. Please tell Mr. ***** that in spite of the fact he is going on review boards with unfactual info and giving us bad marks and now to the BBB, we still value his friendship and encourage him to continue servicing the car here. I emphathize with Mr. ***** feeling upset about paying too much but I hope he realizes that he actually got a fair deal. Way better than a $3.00 bottle of water.

Complaint Resolution: Company addressed the complaint issues. The consumer failed to acknowledge acceptance to BBB.
