Do not waste your time at Hillyer?s Mid-City Ford in Woodburn, Oregon. They tried to scam us, and we are not the first! Vehicle price was listed at $30,747 on their website. On the vehicle the tag showed the price to be $29,747. We made four visits to the dealership. On the first visit we arrived after hours and did a visual inspection of the vehicle, noting the green sales price hanging from the rear view mirror which read $29,747. On 7/27/2010, over one month later, we returned to the dealership and met with Jay, salesman, who verified the asking price of the vehicle. On 7/29 we returned to the dealership and made an offer on the vehicle. The sale price was verified; however, the dealership offered $850 below low trade in Kelly Blue Book on our trade in, so we left without purchasing the vehicle. On 8/1 we returned to the dealership to discuss purchasing the vehicle cash, without the trade-in. We called ahead. The salesman, Jay, returned our call and again verified the price as $29,747 plus $50 tags and $200.00 title fee. We spent 90 minutes on paperwork. When it came time to sign the final paperwork and write the check the sales manager, Bill, stated that he was just informed by the owner that the price had increased $2,000.00 and that he could no longer honor the advertised price. We left without purchasing the vehicle. When I contacted the Oregon Attorney General?s Office, I was told that three similar complaints have been filed recently. Buyer beware: Take your business elsewhere!
