Re: ***** **** *******

ID # ********

Dear Ms. **********:

We are in receipt of your letter dated Apri128,2015, along with the complaint ***** ****
******* filed with your office.

I believe there must be a mistake with the business that Mr. ******* purchased his automobile
from JRS Auto Sales has never sold this person a car and did not sell a 2004 Ford Focus to anyone
during the month of March 2015.

We have attempted to contact Mr. ******* by phone to try and help him figure out who he might have
purchased from in the area but he has not returned our calls.

Please let us know me know if you need any additional information concerning this matter.

Additional Notes

Complaint: we bought a 2006 mazda 3. they sold us the car with no insurance n no drivers license. A week after we got the car the transmission started going out. they put water where the transmission should be n then we found out it is burning oil. we called thousands of times for help n no one helps. they wont take it back or nothing. worse car dealership ever. we are stuck with this car

Desired Settlement: pay for a new transmission or simply take the car back

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2013/12/02) */ JRS Auto Sales takes its obligations as a Washington automobile dealer very seriously and attempts to make all customers 100% satisfied. Unfortunately, **** *******'s complaint contains inaccurate information concerning the sale of the vehicle and our efforts to resolve the matter. The vehicle in question was in 100% working condition when the customer took possession and the customer declined to purchase any extended service plans and also waived any implied warranty in writing while negotiating for a lower price. Further as of this date the customer still has a balance owing of $1000.00 to the dealership. Final Consumer Response /* (2000, 17, 2013/12/23) */ (The consumer indicated he/she ACCEPTED the response from the business.) We will not trade a crappy car for another crappy car. We will not pay made our life living **** Complaint Response Date bumped because: Holiday - BBB Closed Final Business Response /* (1000, 15, 2013/12/22) */ While we would like to make the customer 100% satisfied it is apparent in this situation that we will be unable to accomplish the task. The only option we offer is to forgive the $1000.00 balance still owed and the customer can use the funds toward the repair of their vehicle, or if the customer wishes to pay the $1000.00 balance we can look at taking the vehicle back in on trade towards a different automobile.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2013/10/22) */ Unfortunately, *** *****'s complaint contains inaccurate information concerning the sale of the vehicle and our efforts to resolve the matter of which included a complete unwind of the car deal.
