Fletcher chrysler used cars and trucks Compliment - They sell lemons not cars!
EDINBURGH, INDIANA -- Approximately one month ago we went to this dealer looking for a good used car for my 17 year old son. We went inside and explained that we wanted something safe, dependable and reliable. The owner was there and he told us there was a car on the lot that he knew the owner along with the cars history and he could vouch for that car and knew it to be 'a solid dependable car that was taken car of and should have plenty of miles left on it.' With the owners personal recommendation we bought the car. The only mention of anything wrong was that the gas gage did not work.
Upon test driving it we noted the odometer was broken as well. The sales said he was unaware of such problem but they were not 'allowed' to fix odometers. We got the car home and two days later the turn signals stopped working. Two days later the car stopped running and would not start. We called the dealer and they said the owner was unavailable but they would check with him to see if he would help pay for the cost of repairs. We took the car to the repair shop and it cost approx. 500 dollars to replace the alternator and ignition switch. The dealership would not respond to our calls.
One week later the car over heated and started to produce white smoke from the exhaust. We called the dealership and they said that was too bad but they could do nothing to help us. As of now the car is in the shop receiving 1700 dollars worth of repairs. We contacted the BBB and the contacted the dealership who responded by saying it was obvious they were not obligated to help pay for repairs since the car was bought 'as is no warranty'.
I am now turning to other sources to attempt to recoup some of our expenses. We paid 2000 dollars for the car and in one month we have spent 2200 dollars in repairs. As a person of fairly decent morals and standards it would seem to me that any business man with even a shred of decency and professionalism would not let something like this go unmended, but Mr. Fletcher feels that buying a car through him is a lot like gambling in that 'You pay your money and you take your chances'.
So my advice at this point is to stay far away from FLETCHER CHRYSLER and their products. Not only to they sell poor uninspected untested vehicles they are completely unwilling to work with you should you have ANY problems at all.
