Ron Ferrari Auto Sales Brunswick,oh
Posted by on
BRUNSWICK, OHIO -- I purchased a 2000 Ford Van the sales man told me they have only good working vehicles after purchasing the truck on the way home the service light came on.
I called the dealer and left a message they returned the call on Monday I told them I had the computer checked a code of #8 cylinder misfire I asked what Ron Ferrari auto sale would do the sales men told me they would not do any thing!
I took the truck to a repair shop they told me that repairs would be over $490.00 or more because there could be more wrong. I never was offered a car fax as it said on the web site. I stopped payment on the check they were so rude Don't buy any vehicle for RON FERRARI AUTO SALES. I am sure I would never get any money back if I didn't stop the check.

Company Response 06/12/2010:
The customer (can't fool me) test drove the van and checked it out. The check engine light was not on. He negotiated for a lower price and was also short some money. We let him owe us the balance due for 30 days. He bought the van AS-IS. He never asked for a carfax we would have pulled it if he had asked.
The salesman talked to him on Monday and explained that he purchased it AS-IS and also got $300 off the price so we could not fix the van for free. We offered to have a mechanic, that we use, look at it and it would probably cost him around $100-$125. The customer got angry and hung up.
At some point between Monday evening and Tuesday morning he brought the van and left it with a letter inside saying he was returning the van. We also found out that he stopped payment on his checks which cost us $60.
When we sold him the van we gave him some shelves,cabinets, and drawers that we had in the back of our building at no extra cost to him. He did not return these items when he brought back the van. Ron called him and asked him to bring the items he refused and said that Ron had to come and get them himself. Ron told him that he would take him to court if he did not retun them. Later that day he retuned these items but felt it necessary to bring a police escort which was ridiculous.
We repaired the vehicle for approximately $100. WE sold the van on the 29th to another customer who is completely satisfied
We did not lie or misrepresent the van in any way.

First, you could have obtained your own Carfax, regardless of the the dealer site said or didn't say. Second, stopping payment on the check may create more issues for you. Almost all used vehicle sales are "as is"; you had the right to obtain an independent inspection along with a Carfax report, and you didn't do that. There are very limited instances where a stop payment can be placed without creating some legal issues.

First the car dealer probably had the service engine light reset befor I left the dealer also if you would take the time to look at the dealers web site RON FERRARI AUTO SALES


Best vechicles for the money
All vehicles include a car fax report,"INCLUDE" Why should I have to ask for somthing that is included.......They probably sold it at auction to some other poor sucker. I saw a car two days ago broke down on the side of the highway it had a RON FERRARI AUTO SALES sticker on it.Poor Guy!

"reset the light"
"probably sold it at auction"

Neither of those are facts. Those are assumptions. And technically it's libelous if there is no proof. At any rate it doesn't really help your case.

saj80 is right - stopping payment can cause other legal issues

and I'm somewhat confused... if this vehicle was "as is" ... why didn't you get an inspection prior to the purchase?

Now I'm not sure what the inspection rules are for your state but I know for mine (NY) cars have to have yearly inspections. The last one I bought here had been inspected that month. Now granted the dealers here can do their own inspections but... if they were found to be fudging them they could lose their license to do the inspections.

But seriously... "as is" without an inspection? That's a bit like playing Russian Roulette...
