Ertley Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Kia, Pre-Owned Complaint - SCAMMERS!!!!! - 2006 Scion tC

Review by napoleon600m on 2007-06-18
TRUCKSVILLE, PENNSYLVANIA -- In November of 2006 I bought a 2006 Scion tC from an Ertley Dealership in Trucksville, Pennsylvania. It had a cracked bumper and the dealer told me it would be fixed and the car would get detailed, because it was sitting next to the road and very dirty with salt and grime.

Their has been one attempt to fix my bumper by "patching" it and getting white paint on my black grill. A week later it had re-cracked in the same spot. It is now the middle of June and has yet to be fixed. I have heard every excuse in trying to explain to me why my car has yet to be fixed.

DO NOT BUY FROM ERTLEY!!!! I am also a 19 year old college student and maybe they think they could try to screw me over. I have told many people about my situation and they have told me that their service was unacceptable as well. And as for the price of the car goes. I know it is my own fault for not paying attention, but when I had signed the papers I did not see that they had tacked on an extended warranty for more than $1000 more. Please call me with questions, I wouldn't want the same to happen for you (570) 762-1469 ...ask for Bernie.

First of all, posting your phone number on the internet is never a good idea.
You've learned a valuable lesson here. Never sign anything without reading ALL of it, and make sure any agreements between you and a dealer are written into the contract before signing. At least then, you'll have the option of pursuing things legally if they fail to follow through.

And as you are finding out, automobile dealers are not your friend, ever. They are only looking out for their interest, not yours, regardless of what they say. As runaway said, get everything in writing.
