Summerville Ford Complaint - Scam Artists - New Car Purchase
LADSON, SOUTH CAROLINA -- Went car shopping here for a new Ford Edge and found the vehicle we wanted at a decent price. Everything was going well until we started to work on the paper work. I had already been approved for a loan by my bank and wasn't interested in farming my information out to the myriad of banks that the dealership deals with. The salesman slips me a form and tells me I need to sign it. The form says it is permission to run my credit. I asked the sales representative why I needed to sign the form and he said that they needed it for their records. I told them that I would decline to sign the form but would like to continue purchasing the vehicle. The salesman kept insisting that the dealer would not run my credit but could not tell me what the form was needed for. Finally the finance manager came out to discuss it with me and could not explain to me the reason for the form. Finally, I had them bring me all the previous forms that I had signed so I could leave. Conveniently enough the forms had been shredded, so I had them bring me the shredded papers. Oddly enough they were hand torn. Either these folks are a bunch of scam artists or extremely incompetent. Will never go back there for my vehicle needs.
