Just because they wanted to hold your down payment doesn't mean it is a scam. Gerry Lane did the same with me, and when I wasn't approved they gave my money back. Some dealers will hold your down payment as they are trying to approve you.are like that, even the main top dealers. I say this because I purchased a car from Auto say yes, and it is doing fine so far. Another thing according to your income and credit there are certain cars that you might not be eligible for, so it is best to let the dealer advise you of what kind of car you can purchase. Back to Gerry Lane, I wanted a 2012 car, but I wasn't eligible for it, so they told me I will have to get a pre-owned or a co-signer, because of my income and my credit the banks would not approve me (I make enough, but it has to be a certain amount for the lenders to approve you). I didn't want a pre-owned, so they gave my money back. The same thing at Auto Yes, so I finally got a pre-owned. Anotehr thing you guys must remember when purchasing a used car it is best to get it serviced for everything, because the cars haven't been driven or used in a while. You also must asked for the CarFax report.
John Leo. Your payment was due at DADS. You called and asked if you could pay it the next day. We said OK. The next day you didn't pay or call. And the next day, and the next day. You didn't return any of our phone messages. We tracked your vehicle and shut it down. We get a call from a dealership, asking for your pay-off. You NEVER called us to communicate that you were trying to trade in OUR vehicle. Because you didn't return our calls, I text you stating that the vehicle was about to be repossessed, and that on top of the note, the late fee and a $300.00 REPO fee, it may keep you from trading it in. That was not a threat as you suggested, it was a fact. That's when we had to get it back to DADS. Because of your lack of communication you consider us the bad guys?? You also wrote us a letter stating, " Dear DAD'S Employee's, Keep up the good work! No complaints here. (smiley face) Chevy's Rule, Sincerely, John....Sincerely, DADS Employee's
I don't know about all the bad reviews, but my experience was exceptional. Michael Corsentino made promised to me before the sale of the truck I bought. Everything he promised was taken care of. This included replacing a broken motorized mirror on the truck which was out of pocket for him. A noise I heard was serviced and cleared up. I was and am fully satisfied with the Corsentino family business. I was very pleased with my salesman, Shane. I found Mr. Michael to be a man of his word. The finance man went out of his way to get the lowest possible interest for my loan. I do plan on returning to get my son a vehicle in just a few months. The prices on the vehicles are reasonable and my vehicle was priced $2,000.00 below the Kelly Blue Book value. I have and will recommend this dealer to my friends. Give them a try. I know you can't satisfy everyone all the time, but I was and am very satisfied with my experience and sale. Robert
