Wilkinson Cadillac Pontiac GMC Complaint - Beware
SANFORD, NORTH CAROLINA -- Complaint filed with the BBB:
In late August, my father was suffering from a then-unknown brain tumor. With impaired judgment, he decided to purchase a new car. Wilkinson Cadillac sold my father a slightly used (450 miles), 2007 Buick Lucerne for $30,000 and allotted $8,000 for his 2005 Ford Crown Victoria - a net cost of $22,000. Roughly two weeks later, when my dad was in the hospital, I attempted to unwind the transaction. My dad had only driven the car once. Doug offered $22,000 for the Lucerne - basically assuring himself a two week profit of at least $6000 (he's paid my father too much for the old Crown Vic and charged too much for the Lucerne - a new one was probably worth $27,000.
When I told Doug how disappointed I was, he said "Hey, I'm not going to try to change the world". He had no interest in doing the right thing. Is his behavior illegal? Nope. Did he take advantage of a sick, elderly man? Absolutely. Will he do it again? I have no doubt. He has proven himself to be thoughtless and greedy
At this point, Doug Wilkinson has made his decision and I'm not going to waste my time pursuing him for a few thousand dollars. I only seek to warn other consumers of Wilkinson Car's business practices and hope that other potential buyers strongly consider another provider.
