Additional Notes

Complaint: I bought a ***** from this car dealer and they sold me a very unsafe car I am a single mom with a 16 year old son. They new my circumstances and sold me a unsafe car knowing my situation. They lied numerous amount of times and said they would take care of me and put me into a safe car but kept pushing me off day after day so they wouldn't have to take care of the problems they said they would take care of. The tires are bad and bolding also the gas is going into the oil. They are very aggressive in there attitude and made me feel like a piece of crap because I bought this unsafe car for my son. instead of giving my money back they promised to put me into a different car but never did. I have my 16 year old son driving an unsafe car that should have not been sold when it was in these unsafe conditions.

Desired Settlement: I want my money back, I do not trust these men because they put my son in an unsafe vehical

Response ID ******** ****** **** ****** Complaint

We had offered to help resolve her concerns and together we came to terms. She had agreed arrange to drop off the car that following Monday so we could address her complaint. She did not drop off the car and we did not hear from her again until the BBB had sent a letter with this complaint dated for 12/29/2014. This matter is currently in litigation and unfortunately, we cannot discuss further. It will be handled before a Judge.

I want to replay back to the business comment. I am just asking for my money back or I want the car taken to **** **** ***** repair to be fixed and he said the ***** needs 2,000 dollars in work. I am a single mom and Auto warehouse sold my an unsafe defective car. I don't have any money and I am asking them to make this right by giving me my money back or fixing it through a ***** shop.

Business Response: It is unreasonable to ask for $2,000.00 worth of repairs on
a vehicle you purchased for $3,000.00. I will offer you two new front tires or
a $400.00 check made payable to you that you may use for your priorities. You
will have until February 2nd, 2015 to accept this offer and
withdrawal your legal action. Otherwise, this will be heard in the Court of Law
on February 12th, 2015 and all previous Good Will offers will be

Consumer Response: Complaint: ********

I am rejecting this response because:

No i paid $3600 for the *****, there the ones since they didn't have a certified ***** mechanic who knew anything about *****s they told me to take it to a certified ***** dealer and they would fix the problem. I did that and had to pay more money out of my pocket. Then when they seen it needed $2000 in repairs and the car  was unsafe when they sold it to my 16 year old son, then refused to fix the main problems. All I asked for is my money back or $2000 for the repairs. This ***** should have no problems with how much they had charged me in the beginning. Why would they keep making us suffer when they new from the beginning they sold my son a defective unsafe car. I am a single mom and I really feel this is so unfair how they treated us and how they are continuing to treat us.

Better Business Bureau:

I would like my complaint ID ********, to be handled through an Arbitration hearing with BBB.


I do have a small claims court date set up 02-12-2015 so I don't know if you still can help me. If this stays unresolved with them does this incident get reported to there website on the bbb?

Consumer Response: Tell us why here...I will take this to small claims court. Thank you for all your help. I hope this gets filled on there reports so this doesn't happen to anyone else.

Additional Notes

Complaint: Thursday, September 19, 2013 I received in the mail two final notices of $250 each of a payment that they supposedly had not received. First of all, yesterday, was the first time I was even contacted in any way or given notice of these payments. I do not have a copy of anything that shows me I owe them anything but I do have all the paperwork on the vehicle and on the contract it shows that there was a $500 CASH ON DELIVERY ALREADY PAID.I spoke with them on the phone yesterday as soon as I received the mail, and was told that I was already turned in to the collection agency. I spoke to someone in the financial department of a dealership who looked over the contract and paperwork for the vehicle to see if anything was missed. She assured me that the $500 that they are now trying to get me to pay, was listed at the bottom of the contract as PAID CASH ON DELIVERY. It shows that $500 was DEDUCTED from the total amount of $15,528.56 leaving $15,028.56 om the retail installment sale contract. It says on my copy of the buyer's order and invoice contract, "Total Downpayment $500." This loan/contract HAS BEEN PAID OFF and then out of nowhere, I get this mail regarding more money not only that but I was turned in to collections. My credit is great. I worked my whole life to keep it that way and this is very disturbing.I truly hope that you can resolve this issue I DO NOT OWE THEM ANYTHING and I want my name out of collections immediately. And I do not want any more harassment from Auto Warehouse.(I can fax paperwork to you. Scanner is down at the moment.)

Business Response:

Hi ***,


Attached is a copy of the promissory notes that you signed and agreed to the terms.  Obviously, the amount financed was decreased because of the contract showing $500 that you did not give us at the time of sale.  In turn, we allowed you to make a payment arrangment (Promissory notes attached) that you agreed to pay at a future time.  You did not fufill those agreements and still owe $500.00.  These were all terms that you agreed on.   I don't know why this would be a suprise to you?  Our office has only contacted you once regarding the non payment of the agreement.  She spoke to you by phone and you agreed to pay Auto Warehouse with help from social services.  She also told you that if you didn't fulfill this by a certain time, you would be sent to collections.  By failing to comply with your own arrangement and not responding to the mail sent to your PO Box, we were forced to send this account to collections.
