SS Auto Complaint - Duped by this car dealership

Review by danielw on 2008-03-07
KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI -- On March 1, 2008, I placed a down payment on a 1998 Subaru Forester at SS Auto with a location of 6889 North Oak Trafficway Kansas City, Missouri with the Loan Officer.

Unfortunately, they were unable to provide an interest rate and the bank would not loan the money unless I purchased an extended warranty which I did not ask for nor did I want. I am disappointed because their refund policy on the five-hundred dollar ($500.00) deposit was not disclosed clearly and was misrepresented.

No car and no money.

I'm sorry but I'm not following. Can you provide a little more detail?

if this is a secondary auto lender, contact your local DA. this sounds like they are taking advantage of you and your deposit. I think by law, if you cannot get finacing, they must return your deposit.

I would think that would be illegal to require you to purchase the extended warranty, just to get a loan.
