    Funny, this happened at my dealership about a month ago. Rather than hounding the customer, they simply explained the situation, but still ate the cost. Funny how that works.

    Happens all the time. I've heard of so many underwater contracts and they just have to grin and bear it and Hope they buy another car down the road from them.

    just another dick head customer who feels entitled to more than he deserves.
    dealerships make mistakes. I'm sure the customer knoew all along the other traverse was worth more.....hell the dealerships wasn't obligated to "swap" from one to another just because the customer changes his mind. A dealership will loose a little money to keep a customer but to loose thousands for a simple mistake that can have easily been corrected is absurd. The guy was just being a total tool


    I hope he losses his case and still gets stuck with the loan.

    He signed the contract and left. Mistake or not, that's how the deal was written. That was what the customer agreed to. The dealership is at fault here. It's absurd for them to demand more after the fact. They won't go under for losing a few grand. Explain to the customer what happened. Tell them you will still get it at the price that it was written up at because that was the deal you signed, and hopefully you will earn repeat business and referrals for being an honest and customer friendly dealership.

    Don't get me wrong, the customer is probably a dick too, But by the letter of the law, he is in the right here.

    I couldn't disagree with you more. Dealership made the mistake here. They're stupid for trying to throught a contract. How is he a tool? He didn't reneg.


    Sounds like you got hosed a few too many times by bad customers to polarize your opinion this much. I know you're in the business, but c'mon. Have a sense of decency. The loss would hit the p & L but this publicity is going to HURT them 10x more for their bonehead decision.

    so what happens is the dealership writes up contract for more than the agreed price and the customer doesn't see it until a few days when he looks over his buyers order again?

    should he take call it a loss since it's a contract and abide by it? Nope, didn't think so. company won't go under because of it but a mistake needs to be corrected. this guy just wanted to fuck the dealership and it cost him to get arrested. He knew all along what he was doing.

    I'm in the business and know all too well how it works. just the other day I sold a used car that I had to eat $400 off gross because of my stupid mistake but I made it right by ordering the part I told them it had even though it didn't come with it. I didn't have to do it. I could have said it was my mistake and but yes you are correct in publicity....my word and reputation means more than a few bucks. so i made it right.

    the point here is that all could have been handled if the customer would have been honest and reasonable about the matter. he was called on multiple times and what not.

    Would my dealership have done that? most liely NOT but that doesn't mean all dealerships should just loose just because. trust me....that dealership didn't want to get the cops involved. that amount was too large to loose.

    I don't get defending the lack of due diligence of the dealership.
    You have integrity in your sales. These guys obviously do not.


    Suck up the loss, fire the sales guy and admin team that didn't check this, and move on. Calling the police because the customer wouldn't void the contract is idiotic. Their name is signed on it next to his.

    i'm sure there is more to the story but the fact that he's now suing for frivolous crap just solidifies the fact that he just wants to screw someone.

    papers get agreed upon before going to the finance office....meaning the sales person may have screwed up but those numbers still have to go throught the sales manager and finance manager. how this was overseen is a big question......that big of a money issue just doesn't happen everyday.

    i've messed up before....we're human....but damn not this bad. On the other hand this is why I prolly wouldn't work at another dealership if I left this one. We're more of a family than employees. We're small but with over 100 years of business behind us.
    Other dealserships could care less about you and what you do unless you make them lots of money.

    mehhh.

    By the letter of the law. The customer signed a contract. Would any dealership realize the mistake and say, "Oh well, you signed it", no. But there is a difference in the situation because one is a buyer and the other is the seller. Sellers need a good reputation. Buyers just want the lowest price.

    At my dealership the contract is looked over by at least 4 people (including managers) before the customer finally signs it. As far as I'm concerned, the dealership had their shot to correct it. The moment that customer drove away, they lost it.

    However I do agree with you about the lawsuit. He'll probably get a little something for the wrongful arrest, but he won't, or at least shouldn't, be making millions for his woe is me.

    once again they did tried to correct it and called and I'm sure emailed.....he ignored because he's a giant dousche.

    so the dealership should get screwed just because they were the sellers, am I right?
