The salesman (Don McGee of Trading Post in Conover, North Carolina) told us we were purchasing a 3rd party warranty and upped our price by $2000 "for the warranty" but no warranty was every purchased.
When I first made my purchase in November of 2014, my wife and I walked out considering this one of the easiest and most efficient car buying experiences of our lives. We traded in our minivan for full value and upgraded to a nice SUV. We settled on a price in the $11,000 range and Don McGee shook my hand and went to find out about lending options. Then, after discussing it with my wife, we requested an additional warranty. Don tried really hard to talk us out of it, not sure why. But, since we were spending so much to begin with, we really wanted to have the peace of mind of a warranty. So, Don agreed to a 3-year, 50,000 mile warranty through their 3rd party warranty company (AUL) and tacked on an additional $2000 to the sale price as a result.
We signed all the paperwork where Don told us to sign and drove away in our new SUV. Per Don, the warranty people would mail us the details of the warranty within a few weeks. Over the next three months, we called several times because we hadn't received the warranty information and Don assured us "I'll get right on that" and that the paperwork would be on the way.
Last week, a noticed a leak under the hood so we called Don again. Suddenly, his manager calls us back stating, "you didn't purchase a warranty, you signed paperwork saying there was no warranty, and you're out of luck." He said the best he could do is "write Don up" which, since Don weasled and extra $2000 out of us for absolutely nothing, is not going to amount to much I'm sure.
So, the experience was great right up until we realized they are lying, stealing snakes that have no qualms about taking $2000 out of your pocket.
