Royal Oaks Chevrolet Oldsmobile Cadillac Complaint - Dealership causes me to get a ticket
PADUCAH, KENTUCKY -- In the beginning of June I bought a Nissan from Royal Oaks Chevrolet in Paducah. First let me state that it was the worst experience I have ever had purchasing a vehicle. The tactics that were used were almost criminal; however, I am the one who ended up being a criminal.
Upon purchasing the Nissan, I requested that my license plates be transferred from the trade in to the new vehicle. The plates were removed from the trade and placed on the Nissan. I believed and trusted that all was well. Approximately two weeks later, as I was driving out of town in Illinois, I was stopped in a routine traffic stop. During which time I was ticketed because the plates were not transferred to the new vehicle. Convinced this was just some kind of misunderstanding, I contacted Royal Oaks who was very apologetic and stated they would have temporary plates and a check cut for the price of the ticket brought to me at my place of employment. Over a month goes by, and numerous phone calls and stops by to see them just kept giving me the run around. Never mind the fact that in Illinois your driver’s license is taken as bond on the ticket.
I was able to speak with the general manager and he stated that because I cancelled my extended warranty that somehow that makes him not responsible for the fact that I have a ticket. He continued to state that since his name wasn’t on the ticket he wasn’t responsible. Because I cancelled my extended warranty, it caused him to have to pay a fee, so we were somehow “even”. According to the warranty paperwork, and the phone call I made to the warranty company, I had every right to cancel the policy without being charged.
Obviously this dealer doesn’t care about the people who buy cars there. So now, I’m stuck with a $75 dollar ticket, no license and a court date… Thanks Royal Oaks.
