RK Chevrolet of Virginia Beach Complaint - Fool me once but never twice
VIRGINIA BEACH, VIRGINIA -- In 2007 February I was about to have my son and my boyfriend, now husband and I spoke of getting a bigger vehicle being that I had already had a daughter and I was driving a Carolla at the time.
In February I went to RK Chevrolet of Virginia (I love Chevy) Beach with all intentions to buy a SUV and believing I would not get scammed. I was young and not very smart about my purchase of the 2007 Trailblazer looking over the sale contract now but back to what's recently happening...
The 2007 Trailblazer was a lease and coming to the end of my lease agreement a bunch has been going on. What I thought the bank told me in regards to what to do at the end of my lease all last year isn't what they are saying this year and my lease ends in a month so I found myself in a pickle. I have to pay $9300 (rounded up) by February 9th. Where am I going to get that money only who knows but, luckily I had money coming in and I figured how to pay it off granted if I was extended by the bank. After thinking about everything I decided that instead of paying all that money at once I should look into refinancing a new vehicle and RK was the first place I thought of, so I called my old dealer giving him the details of all and to set me up with something good. I went out there and was shown some cars and I had to go back to work so I said call me when all is good and I will be back.
The next day I get called and he said he can finance me for a used car in-house, I said why don't you just buy my car and sell it back to me, I do want to keep it and he said he could, he just thought I didn't want my car anymore (2007 with 61000 miles, interior is still impecable as well as the exterior), I said this was not the case I would love to keep it since nothing is wrong with it.
I went in and was taken by him to the used section and met with this lady who came back with a monthly payment of $375, I said I am not looking for a high payment anymore (I was paying $461 monthly for the Trailblazer), she asked what was I looking for, I said under $300, she said I need to work with her and how about $365, I said I may do $350 (not thinking at the time), she said she will check with her boss and let me know if that can work. Now everyone I was planning to put $5000 down; plus before I got there I had blue booked my vehicle which came to $11000 trade(rounded up) and $13000 personal sale so I figured they would sell it back to me for maybe $12500 give or take because the payoff is $9300 and they would need ot make a profit. Not the case.
She came back stating $361 monthly, I asked her how much will the car be sold back to me for and she said she need to check with her boss because he's currently drafting the paper and let me know, I said OK. I calculated the $361 and it is like purchasing a new car and I know that if I knew the sale price and minus the $5000 deposit then my payments will not be that much. Well she came back and claim that he is working on getting me a better deal by seeing other banks to finance me, I said OK and how much are you guys selling the car back to me? She said that she didn't get to check but she will and be right back, I told her I'll be in my car. A while later the dealer that sold me my SUV came back and said that it is best to go with them and once I have the money to come in and finance with them.
I WILL NOT!! Thank you very much!! and they just lost a good customer. I have decided to cancel my trip to my mom and take all my money and payoff the car and be done with car payments. I really do which they didn't try to jip me.
