Complaint: My last and final encounter with Bluemound Imports Inc. DBA Lexus of Brookfield, 20001 West Bluemound Rd. Brookfield WI. 53045 and Lexus vehicles was for me an unprofessional and costly end of a 10 year relationship. I purchased my 2006 Lexus GS300 from **** ***** ***** some 10 years ago at this same location. I also purchased additional prepaid dealer factory recommended service agreements even though I stored the vehicle in winters, which resulted in a pristine 42,000 mile vehicle with unused prepaid service. On Monday August 31st 2015 I received a mailing from ******* *******, ******* ***** ******* at Lexus of Brookfield offering to buy my vehicle with “a very aggressive offer”. At that time I was actively attempting to sell the vehicle and was eager to get and quickly act on any “aggressive offer”. The day of offer; On Tuesday afternoon September 1st 2015 I called Lexus of Brookfield at 10:32 AM and left a message for Mr. *******, who was not available, requesting an appointment for the offer. I called again that same day at 11:24 AM and spoke to Mr. ******* who told me to bring my Lexus in. That Tuesday afternoon I met with Mr. ******* and a **** who appraised my GS 300. I also presented my last (partially unused) prepaid dealer service history. Both agreed my Lexus was pristine and “lot ready”. Mr. *******, with **** present, verbally made an offer to purchase of $14,000.00. I asked if there was any additional money available in consideration of unused prepaid Lexus of Brookfield service. He replied that his “**** *** ******* was out for the day and he would check with him the next day, (Wednesday, September 2nd ) and contact me. Mr. ******* stated that we must consummate this offer quickly, “in the next few days”. I relayed that I purchased another vehicle and it was urgent that I sell my Lexus “in the next few days” as well. 24 Hours after the offer; Wednesday September 2nd I cleaned my Lexus in anticipation of the sale awaiting Mr. *******’s call but did not receive one. I called him later but he was not in. 42 hours after the offer; On Thursday September 3rd at 8:05 AM I called Lexus of Brookfield and left another message for Mr. ******* relaying that “since I didn’t hear from him yesterday as he indicated, “I assumed there was no more money available to purchase and that I was accepting his original offer of $14,000.00”. I called Mr. ******* again shortly before noon that Thursday, 46 hours after the original offer, leaving the same message and “requesting an appointment to bring my vehicle in for the offer”. I called again that same Thursday at 4:48 PM, (now some 48 hours after the original offer) with the same message, “when can I come in tomorrow”, (Friday September 4, 2015). I finally spoke to Mr. ******* later that Thursday and stated that he was “withdrawing his offer to purchase for $14,000”, some 48 hours ago, “ as he ‘had purchased too many Lexus GS ‘s that day”, and had a “60 day supply”. Later that Thursday evening I was catching up on home voice mail and had a message from **** at Lexus of Brookfield, that was made that same Thursday morning at 10:32 AM asking “if I was still interested in taking their original $14,000 offer and selling them my Lexus GS”. Friday September 4, 2015; Confused, I called **** at 9:35 AM regarding his Thursday morning offer to purchase voice mail message and relayed my conversation with Mr. *******. I stated that I wanted, as I have been indicating for several days, to “get this sale over with” He stated that Mr. ******* was off that day but would talk to the **** *** ******* and get to the bottom of the offer. **** called back later that morning and stated that “we’re a buyer at $12,500”, ( $1,500. less than the original offer ). Reluctantly I felt I had no choice and sold them my Lexus for $12,500 that day with no financial consideration for the prepaid unused service agreement. I feel this was an obvious twist to bait and switch. They wanted my Lexus but for less money so Mr ******* ran out the clock on his offer, knowing that it was urgent that I sell my Vehicle. This 48 hour fiasco is both grossly unprofessional bordering on deceptive business practices that cost me $1,500 and my respect for the Lexus brand. I make this judgment from my 17 years experience as Wisconsin Corporate Regional Sales and Dealer/Agent Relations Manager for AT&T Communications. I have all documented AT&T land and wireless communications log reports as well as recorded voice mails messages indicated in this statement.
Desired Settlement: Pay the $1,500.00 balance of the original $14,000.00 "aggresive offer" to purchase my Lexus made by Mr. *******. Payment for the balance of the prepaid unused service
In response from ******* *******:
“********* ********* had already sent the second mailing, before we had purchased Mr. *******’s vehicle.It is part of a 2 piece mailing program to help us fill the void of used car inventory”.
Mr. ******* finally admits he was aware of the programs length and second letter, “to help us fill the void” of used cars and extending all original existing offers . He admits lying to me about the program being over in 48 hours because they ”purchased too many used cars”. The game, as I see it, was to get people in to the dealer promising to buy their cars for top dollar. They tried to up sell me to a new vehicle. When I made it clear I just wanted to sell my car, Mr. ******* introduced the stall, “I **** have to ask someone about your prepaid maintenance credit and call you ”, even though I gave him his own service writer, Mr. ********* documentation indicating an unused balance of 9 months /10,000 miles. ******* did not call me back, “too busy” he said, for 48 hours, and withdrew his $14,000 original offer, because the program was over, until Mr. **** called the next day, offering again to buy my GS for, the original $14,000 offer, but then, after checking "with someone", only $12,500.
“********* *********, at no time, put in writing a specific dollar amount that is promised to any customer.”
Mr. ******* now appears to challenge that the original offer to me was $14,000.My original offer as Mr. ******* and **** **** was verified in previous statements, as $14,000. One who receives this extension letter would assume whatever offer they originally received was the “original offer” referred too, as being extended. Unless, they were again baiting people back to the dealer only to lower the original offer unless they trade up. Mr. ******* seems to suggest they could because "no dollar amount was indicated".
“At no time did I ever tell Mr. ******* “he further stated he would have now honored the $14,000 original offer as the mailing stated”.
I asked Mr. ******* that if I had not sold my GS a few days ago for $12,500 and received this mailing, would he have honored it for the original $14,000 offer? He stated that he would have had to honor the extension mailing for the original $14,000 if I still owned the GS. But based on Mr. *******s statements now, I believe the second mailer was again bait for an even lower second offer, he could tell others, that their original offer mentioned, was now less than they think.
“Mr. *******’s next statement of “to bad, you had just sold us your GS for $12,500.” These statements are complete fabrications and something I would have never done, **** do, or say to a guest.
His exact words were “I can’t buy your GS for the original offer now”, (again, $14,000) because you sold it to us for $12,500. I replied, “too bad for me right, you just cost me $1,500. He replied “You chose to sell us your GS for $12,500”. I replied, yes, “based on your lie about the program being over”.
“I did offer his vehicle back to Mr. Brzyycki as written in the case statement; Mr. ******* did decline that offer. The added comment of “I **** not honor the original offer of $14,000 offer regardless of what the mailer says.” is untrue, the mailer never, at any time, had a dollar figure associated with or printed on it.
I declined and told him, as he knew, the money to buy my GS back was gone on the other car. I challenged him that if he wanted to do the right thing now he can honor the “original offer” (a documented $14,000) extension that he was aware of, and reimburse the disputed difference of $1,500. Under those circumstances Mr. ******* refused to honor the original offer ($14,000) regardless of what the extension letter, said, and reimburse the disputed $1,500. Again I am troubled that Mr. ******* keeps going back to his interpretation of the extension letter, or, seems the “original offer” amount can be anything he wants it to be because “it had no dollar figure printed on it”. It seems intended to be vague and open to Mr. *******s manipulation.
Mr. ******* could have dispensed with his arrogance and admitted he made a mistake and as we used to say in business, "make it right". He now feigns self-righteous indignation and hides his unprofessional behavior behind a reputable business name and vehicle brand. His own inaction, unfulfilled promises, failure to honor commitments, false statements and obscure interpretations of customer mailings and offers, as indicated above, resulted in a bad and costly customer experience for Safro of Brookfield and Toyota/Lexus corporation.
