Ride Auto Complaint - Watch Out For Ride Auto In Burnsville, MN
BURNSVILLE, MINNESOTA -- Don't believe a word these people say. I called Ride Auto about a vehicle I saw on their internet website. They asked me, "the '05 or '06", I said the '06. I got the info I wanted and asked if it had been in any accidents. I was told "NO ACCIDENTS" The next day when my husband got home from work, we went to the bank to get the money to purchase this vehicle. When we left the bank, I called Ride Auto again, just to make sure the vehicle was still there. I told them that we would be driving 2 hours to get there and even asked about the rush hour traffic, to make sure we'd make it before they closed. I again asked if the vehicle had been in any accidents and this time was told, "I don't think so" When we got there we went into the office and said we were there to see the '06. One guy got up to get the keys the other guy said that vehicle was sold and it didn't even make it to the lot. He said he had sold it to his friend. He tried to get us to look at the '05, which had more miles and a higher price. When I was telling them what I thought about their business, one of the guys said it had a salvage title anyway. They told us so many stories.
One of the guys even told us that the vehicle had never been advertised. So we went to our car and got the ad that I had printed out. When I got home, I decided it was well worth the money to run any vehicles we were thinking about buying thru Carfax. I checked the '06 vehicle, and it did have an accident on 12-20-08. It said the accident involved a front impact, it hit a median safety barrier. So we wasted a 4 hour long trip, and $26 in gas.
DON'T BELIEVE ANYTHING the people from RIDE AUTO tell you. BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
