Autopark / Crooks
I was test driving a vehicle at autopark when they first opened. I'm out for the test drive and the brakes in the car are failing, the dealer tells me this is to due with it sitting too long, whatever. When we return he immediately begins to pressure me into leaving a $500 down payment for the car. The down payment isn't refundable, of course, this is apparently a good thing in Autoparks opinion?
I am very interested in the car but am concerned with the brakes. They honestly, failed to stop the car at two intersections! I asked to have the car repaired prior to me leaving a down payment, but they refused. Stating they would lose money if they repaired the vehicle (made it safe) and I didn't purchase it.
These guys are high pressure crooks who only want to quickly turn vehicles. Once they have your non-refundable down payment you're stuck buying the car you test drove or something else from them, or you can walk away and they'll keep your hard earned money.
To make matters worse while I am on the test drive one of their sales people hits my current car! After weeks of police reports and arguing back and forth, not to mention me retaining a lawyer they finally agree to pay for the damages to my vehicle. They tried EVERY tactic known to try and get out of paying for the repairs. Not to mention this devalued my trade in with them!
I didn't buy for obvious reasons. But let me tell you they called my home, my cell, my business trying to convince me to buy the car and they would make the proper repairs.
Do yourself a favour shop elsewhere. Tell your friends to shop elsewhere. This is not a reputable dealership no matter how big it is.
