Ourisman VW of Laurel Complaint - Dishonest sales tactics
LAUREL, MARYLAND -- We went to buy a new Jetta Sportwagen at Ourisman VW dealership located in Laurel, MD. Our test drive was fun; salesman was pretty patient in explaining all the new features of the car. However, dealership did not have the car in the color and trim we wanted. We wanted to place a factory order; but the sales manager stepped and promised us to get a similar vehicle from a different dealership if we agreed to a proposed deal right then and there. We agreed; but the sales manager could not keep his promise. He could not get the vehicle from multiple dealerships. A factory order was placed for us and we were told that the original deal will be honored. But after 2 months of waiting, we found out that the new vehicle (that was ordered for us) was sold to a different customer!! They did not even notify us. Apparently the sales manager did not want to honor the original deal anymore!! He made the original deal to reach his monthly quota and when once he realized that he could not get the vehicle in time, he had no intention to honor the deal. Not only he promised to deliver a car that he did not possess, he kept us in complete darkness about the factory order. He had no courtesy to talk to us after he sold the factory ordered car to someone else. Beware of promises to you hear when you visit this dealership. Most importantly, don't trust anything that comes out of the mouth of dishonest and unethical sales manager at Ourisman Volkswagen of Laurel.
