I HATE LYING DEALERS!
Well after having a signed buyer's order and signing a credit card authorization form 4 days ago i got a call today saying that the car already has a deposit on it. What BS.
Monday when I signed the buyer's order and sent my credit card info, the sales rep said that the cashier had already gone home for the day and he would run the card Tuesday. I then specifically asked if the car was listed as sold to me and locked in so there is no issue later. He said ABSOLUTELY!
Well today after seeing that my credit card didn't show the charge yet I called. Sales rep said I needed to sign a new CC Auth with the $1000 instead of the $3k. I asked for a new buyer's order showing the new deposit amount. He sent the CC Auth form. I signed it and sent it to him.
Then I get a call telling me that someone already has a deposit on that car. What BS. I think they had a buyer that was willing to pay more than my deal and since they hadn't run my credit card yet I was SOL.
Now they tell me they have another identical Leaf coming in next week with a deposit on it. They said the customer paid the deposit without seeing the final numbers. He thinks there is a good chance that the buyer will not complete the sale once he sees the added on BS packed crap and the over MSRP price they will be asking. He said if that is the case then I can have that car at my negotiate price. If not he has a Deep Blue one coming in in October and I can have that one at my price. I said Gray or white, not BLUE, what don't you understand?
So they are trying to scam another buyer by tacking on another $3,000 in "Market Adjustment" and $3,500 in wax and tinting BS and not disclosing the final cost when they took the deposit. I HATE LYING DEALERS!
