GMF Motors Complaint - Don't Ever Go To GMF Motors

Review by angry at gmf on 2008-08-16
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA -- I just moved here from out of state and I was down to one car. My credit is terrible so no big name dealership would give us a car without 2500 bucks that we don't have. We found ourselves at GMF motors on Fremont street. They guaranteed to put us in a 2002 Chevy S10 for 4500. Only $1000 down. We test drove it around the block and it sounded great. We signed the paperwork and drove home. My husband drove the truck to work the next day and noticed that there was suddenly no oil pressure. We called the dealership that day and they told us to bring it in and they'll fix the problem for free. One week and a half later and me making many phone calls.

They finally say they fixed the truck. On my way home now I hear this terrible knocking sound as well as there being no oil pressure. I called the dealership immediately. They said to bring it in and they'll see why it's doing that. Once again now two weeks goes by and no phone call. I called them up and they said it now needs a new engine. What?! And that I would have to pay half of what it cost to put in a new engine. Once again what?! So I replied that I just wanted my 1000 back and we'll forget this ever happened. The salesman R.C. and the finance lady Christine says that they can't do that. They would need permission from the big boss (whoever that is) and he is supposedly across seas. So we asked if they can put us in another running vehicle and they said only if we put 500 down. What?!

They won't even let us have the truck back to get a second opinion or our belongings out of it! Christine said the only way to get the truck back is to pay for what they supposedly did to the truck. They refuse to show a receipt of the work they done. And needless to say I am still down to one vehicle and out of 1000 bucks. If someone could have told me that these people were scam artists I never would have gone there in the first place.

I contacted the police and the Better Business Bureau in hopes that I will get my 1000 bucks back. Please let everyone know to never go to GMF Motors!

Read over the warranty, providing they even provided one, to see exactly it says about covered repairs. Contact the local consumer protection office to determine what legal recourse you have.
