Munday Chevrolet Complaint - Misleading Ads - Audi A4

Review by allwayssuspicious on 2010-07-13
HOUSTON, TEXAS -- Found a car online Audi a4 2009. Price was listed $10,995. Check blue book avg. trade in was $27,000 or so. I called the company and spoke with the sales rep, I asked about the car wanted to know why it was so cheap. He said they got a good deal on it, i said must have been one hell of a deal. I made appointment to come the next day. My wife works near there so she went that mourning and test drove it. She also ask why it was so cheap, same answer. We never said $10995 but a monkey with a hand full of banana's would had checked the price at that time. She asked to bring it to me so I could look at it, knew there had to be something wrong with it. All agreed left our insurance info etc. Looked on the Internet a few hours later and walla $29,995. Tried calling left messages no return call. Find email next morning on my address, Quote: pricing error on the Audi. The price is $29,995. If your interested let us know.

Short, blunt, no I'm sorry there seams to have been an error on our part, just a cheesy email. We also printed out there site ad along with the yahoo add that prices the car at $10.995. We new something had to be wrong and was waiting on the bomb to drop, but still hoping we were that lucky ( yea right) but the email to notify us was what baked me.

Too bad you didn't buy it on the spot! I wonder if they would have caught the mistake.

I know they would have caught it i'm sure and that's fine, but the email was unprofessional.

I'm sure they would have caught it too. That's quite a big mistake. Maybe the email was short and blunt because they didn't want to engage you in any conversation. They were probably anticipating an argument.

Even though the email may was a CYA it shows extremely poor salesmanship. A good salesman would have found an angle to at least try to leverage a sale but these guys pretty much said eh crap happens. You gotta wonder how these guys eat.

This may have been an Audi, but it sounds more like a saab story to me.

Honestly, not many are going to get turned if their original interest goes from 10k to 30k, so I'm not sure what any additional info in the email would be productive. I would have added "our apologies for any inconvenience" at the end, but other than that, no one was surprised it turned out to be a misquote in error.

LOL Sheriff!

So, they are actually selling it for more than what the trade value is?

I agree with Slimjim, If a salesman could sell that car to you for $29995 after a error like that, I'd have him working for me for any $ amount he wanted. He knew that sale was dead.
