General Motors Complaint - Credit Union Discount Program a Rip Off
NEW JERSEY -- After deciding to purchase a new car I went to my local dearship in Nutley, only to find out they didn't honor the Credit Union Discount Program. To boot they tried to sell me a marked up model of the 2010 Camaro. I decided to find another dealership, even though I had dealt with the one in Nutley for over 20 years. Upon going to Hawthorne, NJ I placed an order for the car only to discover they too don't honor the discount program either. At that point I contacted GM customer service to find out why these dealerships and others I had contacted , (5) to be exact didn't honor totally or partially the program.
I was told it was up to the discretion of the dealership. There is no disclaimer in their advertisement stating such a fact, and if over 50% of the dearships don;t honor totally or paritally the program, I consider it false advertising, bait and switch, and a rip-off to the consumer. I personally went to GM website and the vehicle I ordered was included as an eligible vehicle, but most of the dealerships are still trying to rip off the consumer. Nutley has three camaros sitting on their lot almost a month, because they refuse to even sell at MSRP, but instead are trying to mark up the price and not honor the credit union program. However; They are not alone. This is a disgrace, considering the U.S. Gov bailed their sorry behinds out, and supported them with cash for clunkers. They need to be put out of business permanently. Seems they only want to do business if they can get monetary support from the gov. No wonder their sales dropped by 40% after the clunker support. They will never do the right thing.
