Hardy Chevrolet - Used Car Buying at Hardy Chevrolet
Used Cars - Complaint
GAINESVILLE, GEORGIA -- My compliant is with Hardy Chevrolet in Gainesville, GA who sold me a used 2007 vehicle on June 15th 2013.
This vehicle was on their used lot and was a trade in sometime in 2013.
My compliant stems from the receiving of the vehicle to finding out 2 days later that the vehicle had never actually been serviced properly by the Hardy dealership before putting it up for sale to the public.
I brought the vehicle into a local repair shop in Duluth 2 days after purchasing the vehicle as the SUV was driving terrible and leaking fluids.
The local repair shop in Duluth, GA stated the following after a full inspection of the SUV:
Repairs needed -
Powering Steering hose removed and replaced, Engine Oil Cooler Lines, removed and replaced, A/C Compressor Belt Tensioner/Idler replaced, Transmission Flushed, Transfer Case Drained and Refilled, Differential Cover Gasket Replaced both front and rear. 4 tires need to be balanced ( brand new )
Did I mention the dealership added the new tires without properly balancing them?
Total cost to me - $1,071.21
My problem with this is the dealer never went through the SUV, they basically washed it, sprayed black paint under the car, cleaned it up on the inside and put it up for sale at 32K without doing even a basic service to this vehicle.
I asked the dealership for some reimbursement to no avail did anyone other than the Internet sales person (Marie) call me and said that Dale ( Mgr of the used cars division ) wasn't available and that he didn't even return her calls until after 4pm that same day.
I would suggest strongly rethinking buying a used car from the Hardy Chevrolet dealership as this is just my experience all within 5 days and I’ve still received no calls to resolve any of this from management or anyone from the dealership.
My 2 cents, buy elsewhere and save yourself the headache.
