Merced Hyundai Complaint - We Got Screwed And Used

Review by andy333 on 2007-08-23
MERCED, CALIFORNIA -- I bought a used car from Merced Hyundai 2002 Vw Jetta with 76000 miles for 13900 didn't even have it for 24 hours and there were tons of problems with the car. First off, they let us drive the car off the lot with the check engine light on and a bold tire. They told us in the beginning that they would have those two things fixed before we took the car, which did not happen. We brought the car in the next morning and they told us that it would be ready at a certain day and time. Never happened and they did it not only once but three times to us saying that our car would be ready. Come to find out there were several more things wrong with the car. These people are a bunch of liars! Not only did they let us drive the car off the lot with a bold tire and the check engine light on, I am 7 and a half months pregnant! Shows how much these guys care about people. All they care about is getting their sales. I can't believe that they would let a pregnant woman leave with a car like that knowing that I could get stranded anywhere and at anytime. I suggest to never, ever do business with these people!

They are a bunch of liars and they never commit to their word and they make promises they can't keep!

You could have said no thanks to the test drive. And please, being seven months pregnant has nothing to do with it. I won't even comment on "bold".

Why would you buy a car with the check engine light on and a bold (bald?) tire? Lots of pregnant women get stranded when their cars break down. They survive.

If you were told they would fix it before you took the car, why did you take it? How did they let you drive it off the lot? Didn't you refuse to leave with it until it was fixed? Did you get their promised repairs in writing?

You should have done a little research before paying $13,900 for a Jetta with 76k miles on it. Unless it is in almost pristine condition it's worth far less.

Caveat Emptor. I suggest you learn what that means. Secondkly, tires are not bold, they are bald. Good luck to you.

Check your states laws on buying cars. Most consumer protection offices have a return policy for these peices of junk which will cancel the sale. Hurry, the clock is ticking.

Pregnant or not - - who in their right mind would drive off a used car lot in a car with known, visable problems?

Sorry moneybags, there are no states with laws on "vehicle returns" for used vehicles for items such as a check engine light and "bold" (ha ha) tires. Flood vehicles, undisclosed frame damage, and reconstructed title vehices are usually the only conditions that you may stand a chance in some type of reimubursement and/or replacement. I do not know where people get the idea that buying a car is the same as buying something at Walmart. You simply should never have driven the car off of the lot.
