Prestige Auto Mart Complaint - Safety Issues
WESTPORT, MASSACHUSETTS -- For anyone out there planning on buying a car from this shady place where they take gross advantage of the consumer!!!!! PLEASE THINK TWICE. The carrot they dangled in front of me was a shiny 2001 Mercedes slk 230. My crerdit sucks because I'm going through a bad divorce!! So I go in there they say they are running this great program where you can use your tax refund as a down payment! So I do that! Then they want the sales tax up front they want 895 in fees TO THE TUNE OF 4000 DOLLARS. so you do all that! And then what happens they tell you u can take the car right away! No Carfax no info no NOTHING!!!!! I'm having a problem with the cars interior light imagine it doesn't work! They tell me they have to order the part they do it takes two weeks!! They get it this service manAger who supposedly knows a lot about Mercedes named DANNY puts in the bulbs doesn't bother to check it! I get in car and the interior light won't shut off!!! Now I'm annoyed because he didn't even check it! So I'm done with this shoddy service!!! I got to viti Mercedes to have the problem diagnosed while I'm there they do the Rhode Island state inspection and safety inspection on my vehicle... well guess what 3 of the 4 tires were dry rotted! The drag Links are bad, THE STEERING SHOCK IS BLOWN! THE DRIVE BELTS ARE CRACKED!!!! tHE WORST PART IS THIS IS ALL SAFETY RELATED!!!!
