Sullivan Cadillac of Ocala Complaint - Looking for a new car
OCALA, FLORIDA -- Wednesday, September 01, 2010
I was in the market of looking for a new car. So I visited Sullivan Cadillac of Ocala on August 28, 2010. I saw a very pretty CTS Caddy and inquired about payments etc.
After some car talk, Nigel Vanlue said to me, “Would I like to take this care home for the weekend and return it Monday”. I was surprised by his suggestion considering I didn’t think dealers ever did that now a days. I drove it home at 25 miles one-way and my wife and I drove it locally. We decided the CTS was a very bad designed care at $41,000.
Friday night (8/29/10) Nigel Vanlue called me asking for a $500 credit card deposit. I authorized it via credit card. I actually believed it was to make sure I returned the car unharmed. After I returned it Monday (8/30/10), Nigel Vanlue informed me he thought I would buy it and refused my $25 gas receipt for the gas I put into the car (to get home, the cars gas tank was empty) and also they are holding my $500 deposit.
I want my deposit credited and I don’t think I should pay for gas considering it was Sullivan’s idea to take the car home to my wife.
I want this resolved and the salesman should be re-instructed about selling cars to maybe buyers. (He spent his commission before he got it.)
