BOB MAGUIRE CHEVROLET Complaint - SALES RIPOFF
BORDENTOWN, NEW JERSEY -- I went to Bob Maguire Chevrolet (Bordentown NJ) on 6/23/06 to purchase a pickup truck. I explained that my brother had recd. a few loyalty coupons in the mail from GM and that my brother had discarded them, as he wasn't planning on buying another truck. My brother and I asked if they could honor these coupons either through a computer database or by calling GM. The salesman and sales manager BOTH agreed that it would be no problem. As a matter of fact, after I bought my truck, they made the same offer to my brother, who then bought his 4th new chevy pickup, though he really didn't need another truck. We both paid in full on that day and drove them home. Fast forward 5 months later and I get a call from the salesman. He states that one of the coupons did not go through and that I now owed the dealership 1500. I told him that I had never heard of something so ridiculous! He said the dealership would sue me if I did not pay. On may the 1st I had to go to court at Burlington County, as I was sued by Bob Maguire Chevrolet. The judge decided to arbitrate the case, despite the fact that my sales contract from Maguire Chevrolet stated that neither the buyer nor the seller could sue the other party. ( Apparently the liberal judge had trouble deciphering that point, even though I did bring it to his attention and requested a dismissal). I have now been ordered to pay 750. plus court costs. I WANT EVERYONE TO KNOW THAT I WILL NEVER PURCHASE ANOTHER GM PRODUCT IN MY LIFETIME NOR WILL MY BROTHER! I also will be touting the virtues of this dealership for many years to come, as well as displaying signage on my truck that states- DON'T BUY - MAGUIRE CHEVROLET! I travel the turnpike daily from exit 4 north to NYC. If I happen to go by you, please give me a beep and a thumbs up!
