Makita Auto / Be cautious

1 US Review updated:

This Car dealer likes to sell cars that belong to other people, so if a problem occurs he'll act like he's just the middle man and has nothing to do with it. I wanted to buy my daughter a car for her birthday, so I went to him, sadly I knew him as a friend, I told him the price rage I wanted to spend. he really didn't have nothing that i liked in my price range, but there was this one car he had that he would give me a good deal on, so he told me one price, and I gave him a down payment, days later i went back to finalize the deal and to sign the contract but to my amaze the contract was not what we agreed, it was $1000 more, he claimed it to be a typo, but at that point, I was skeptical of doing business with him ( to me it was more like baite & switch)and told him that I didn't want the car give me back my money. I never signed the contract and he never said that there was no refunds on the down payment nor was it written anywhere. I have been asking for my refund for nearly a month now and all he says is the owner of the car refuses to give my money back. Why won't they give me my money back, now I have a sad 16 year old who got nothing for her birthday but ripped off. I'm still trying to get my money.

    Sue them! It makes no sense that they would be allowed to keep the down payment if you didn't get the car.

    it makes alot of sence to me. the same thing happened to me but i had the car almost paid off and the dealer took the car back while i was at a work so i contacted a lawyer and they told me pretty much i was screwed but in nicer terms. all you really can do is cut your loss . dealers can do what ever they want anymore. sorry to hear this next time just buy her a car that is cash,
