Motor Werks Infiniti Complaint - They Lie To Avoid Giving The Advertised 0% Rate

Review by CaveatEmptor2 on 2009-02-18
BARRINGTON, ILLINOIS -- These jokers actually told me my credit score was 20 points lower than it was to avoid giving me the 0% interest rate; however, they were more than willing to get me financed through one of their "partners" at a higher rate. I told them I was not interested in a higher rate and to NOT submit my application to their partners.

I pulled my credit report and not only had they submitted the application to 5 other "partners" my credit score was still 20 points above what they reported to me--even after 6 inquiries.

Decided to purchase another vehicle at 0% and was driving a new car within hours.

Can't speak for all Infiniti dealerships but the Barrington, IL scammers can't be trusted.

Questions to ask a dealer ;) fyi
- Is the car still available for sale? A few times, I have witnessed the situation when over the phone a sales person tells you that car is available, but when you come, he/she would tell you that the car is sold and he/she wasn't aware of this. So ask to confirm.
- Ask to confirm the mileage, price, color and that it has the options that you are looking for: air conditioner, automatic or manual, ABS, cruise control, etc.
- Ask about any additional fees. Some dealers may set the advertised price fairly low to lure more buyers, but add some additional 'administration' or some other fees later.
- Ask when the car was placed in service and is it still covered by any type of warranty. For example, a car that is advertised as a 2009 model, might have been originally sold and placed in service in August 2008, so the original warranty will be counted from that date.
- Ask if the car had any accidents or major repairs.
- Ask if any service records available. A car might have been originally sold from the same dealer and they may have its service records. It's nice to know if the car has been maintained regularly.
- Ask if the price is negotiable. For example, if the car is advertized for $14,000, ask if it's worth to come if you only want to pay $13,000. Usually, dealers are more willing to discuss the price when they feel that you are the real buyer.
- Ask if the dealer can arrange the car be brought for an inspection to your mechanic.
- If it looks like this is the car you want, ask for the VIN number, so you can check the history records.
