Kingdom Chevy sold me a used vehicle with the incorrect engine; car can't pass emissions and is useless.
Salesman: Michael Brixie
I purchased a used 2007 Ford Escape from Kingdom Chevrolet. After the purchase, I took it to 3 different mechanics to have the "Check Engine" light issue repaired. The computer was showing a "Camshaft timing" error.
Eventually, after a lot of time, energy and money invested in diagnosis, it was determined that the engine in the vehicle was incorrect. We don't know which model year or style this engine is for, but it is definitely not for this vehicle.
I called Kingdom Chevrolet to let them know the situation. Their response was to stonewall and claim they have zero liability for this.
All of my paperwork says that I purchased a 2007 Ford Escape. Nothing on the paperwork states that I was purchasing the engine for a different vehicle. I did not agree to purchase the body of one vehicle and the engine of another. This was a material fact not disclosed to me prior to the purchase of this vehicle.
I've been helping my friend search for a car for about a month. We found a very nice 2010 chevy traverse on their website for a very reasonable 20k. We spoke to a sales person and he was very informative and friendly. My friend does not have the best of credit, needless to say when he came at us with an offer with an outrageous interest and final payment of almost 40k we decided to decline. He then became very upset and told me he has been doing this for a long time and I did not know what I was doing. We walked out and we forgot we had given him the title to my friends trade in. We came back inside and The sales manager heard his sales guy getting loud and upset and decided to intervene. He was very apologetic and asked him for the title. He replied "I threw it in the shreder" again the sales manager apologized and retrieved our title from the shredder box.
