Stole my $3000 deposit" - Anthony Gonzales
I was very excited to purchase a 69 charger and even had lemon squad inspect the vehicle. They reported there was a cracked grille and their salesman stated he would have it repaired by their body shop with purchase of this $80,000 car. I never signed a document stating my deposit of $3,000 was nonrefundable and stated I would wire the rest of the funds when the repairs on the car we're done. Some of the things that needed to be done were a malfunctioning headlight and other repairs needed to make the vehicle safe to drive. I figured asking their body shop to repair a cracked Grill was not asking too much. The manager had contacted me about sending the rest of the funds and I told him his salesmen was supposed to have the grill fixed and I wanted pictures of it, well the manager told me he had no such knowledge and I showed him text messages that I had to prove it from his salesman. Anyhow the salesman called me and told me it was $600 additional for them to fix the grill and I could take it or leave it. He then told me in anger we already have someone that will purchase the vehicle and will send you $3,000 back to you and hung up on me. I then attempted to reach the owner twice with no returned phone call hoping he would resolve the situation especially since his salesman told me the car was sold to somebody else and my deposit would be sent back to me. Well I had a long conversation with the owner of Flemings "ultimate " garage and he said he would contact me within 48 hours to discuss matters in regard to refunding my $3000 deposit, which never happened. During our conversation that took place he stated the reason his salesman told me the car was sold was that "he said it out of frustration " as if that makes it better. These guys are dishonest and I will never think about purchasing from them in the future. I now have brought on an attorney as this is going to become a legal issue all over dishonesty and lack of consideration for their customers. Beware of this place if you are looking for honest considerate people and a pleasant experience purchasing your dream car!
