Auto bahn motors Complaint - Lied/Misled me to make a sale on a car with major issues

Review by seminole on 2006-12-26
DELAY BEACH, FLORIDA -- I had just gotten divorced and they saw "naive" coming. I had 4 witnesses at work meet with me & the salesman,I believed what he said he would do, replace the front bumper, complete extended warranty, etc. I failed to get this in writing. Pick up the car, sign, sorry, you signed, it is not in writing. My witnesses wrote letters, too bad. As a result I have lost a few thousand and I am not a rich person, single self supporting female. Now I'm stuck w/this mess for 3 years until it is paid off. There should be something that can be done for grossly dishonest sales people that use people for financial gain.

It’s unfortunate that as this is a used car that it doesn’t fall under Florida’s Lemon Law.
But you did make the right move by posting here. With four witnesses, I’d contact the local media. The last thing a company like Auto Bahn wants is the word getting out in Central Florida that they are a Rip-Off!

I would do the same report it to the media, get their name out there and I bet they listen to you then.

If you have good witnesses, why not file a small claim? It's cheap enough to file, maybe you can prevail this way.

Did you file a complaint with the local Better Business Bureau and more importantly with the Florida Attorney General's office of consumer affairs? I also agree with Kenpopcorn. File suit in small claims court. Costs you little to nothing. Have your witnesses show up and state your case. If you prevail then the dealership will have to pay you.
