Curry Toyota Complaint - Bait and switch - Auto Dealership

Review by Consumer06489 on 2011-02-18
CORTLANDT MANOR, NEW YORK -- Saw vehicle on eBay and called at 9am to see if it was available...I was told vehicle was available. Drove for 1 1/2 hour from CT to NY to see vehicle. Pulled into parking lot and called again to see if vehicle was available. Sales representative told me, and absolutely assured me, the vehicle was available and there was no deposit on vehicle. I immediately went in and spoke to a representative who told me car was sold. I told him this was a bait and switch and manager told me he had a deposit on vehicle over an hour ago (Odd considering I just confirmed availability). They quickly offered to show me a slew of other vehicles. This occurred at 11am. As of almost 6pm, the vehicle is still for sale on Ebay! This is a classic bait and switch. Buyer Beware of this dealership!! This cost me an hour and a half drive from CT each way, gas money, and a lot of time!

I have purchased two vehicles through Ebay ads, both by private sellers within 20 miles of my home. I have tried to buy cars from dealers who advertise on Ebay, and in every case (about 4) it was a total waste of time.

That is Bait-and-Switch, which is fraudulent but difficult to prove. They don't deserve your business. Good review.
