Extended warranty was a scam & used to help sell older high mileage vehicles.On 10/19/11 I drove to A-1 Auto from Maine to buy a 2004 Ford F150 pick up with 146,271 miles. I never would buy a vehicle with high miles but it came with a 5 year 150,000 mile extended warranty. I now need service & found out that Clear Advantage Vehicle Warranty, the company that A-1 used to warranty the truck was a scam & had many complaints going back to 2009 and has gone out of business and the owners have vanished. I find it hard to believe that on 10/19/11, 2 years later, A-1 Auto did not know about all the complaints & the fact that it was all a scam. I also think A-1 Auto kept advertising the extended warranty to make older high mileage vehicles more attractive so that they could get "top dollar" for their vehicles. The only reason I bought this truck & traveled over 400 miles to buy it was because of the Warranty. The warranty came with the truck, but, in a way, I did pay the $1500. by paying "top dollar" for a truck with 146,271 miles on it. The warranty price was hidden in the price of the truck. I would like the $1500. or have A-1 pay for my repairs that should have been covered under warranty. I have all paper work, including: the original ad for the truck showing it came with a 5 year 150,000 mile warranty, buyers contract & any other paperwork that might be needed. A-1 Auto sold me a truck which included a warranty, now, I have no warranty. Desired SettlementA-1 Auto claims my problem is with the warranty company and refuses to do anything about it, however, I bought the truck which came with a 5 year 150,000 warranty from A-1, not the warranty co. I'd like a $1500. refund. The price of the warrantyBusiness Response In response to Mr.[redacted]'s complaint, I would like to say there are NO other complaints against A-1 Auto do to 3rd party extended warranty going out of business.We stopped providing the warranty immediately when we got returned checks from the company.If we were using it to sell "TOP DOLLAR" vehicles there would be more complaints.2. Mr. [redacted] did not purchase the warranty, we paid for it , in addition to our limited warranty that we always honor.3rd I notice MR. [redacted] does not mention the purchase price of the vehicle as it was well below book value and that being the reason he travel so far for the vehicle.When he called I explained best I could but did offer to help him , and get him our costs on repairs, but no refund for something you did not pay for.
We had clear verbal agreement, offered by [redacted] himself, that he would return our $deposit if the car loan were not approvedHe refused to do so.On Saturday - 9/7/2013, my husband and I chanced upon Awhen we were supposedly checking out a car across the street[redacted] was nice and friendly and showed us a Jeep Liberty Sport with VIN 1J4GL48K47WXXXXXXIt didn't look bad so we took it for a drive test; the steering wheel shook while braking, the brakes produced smoke and a strong smell, the A/C fan did not work properly, and the rear power window was stuckWe told him these initial problems even before having a mechanic check the vehicle, to which he assured us that he does not sell cars as-is, these problems will certainly be checked and repaired, besides the fact that by Massachusetts law, we get a 30-day warranty.We told him we were actually not shopping for a Jeep, and that we still have to see if we can get a car loan, because we have limited credit history, having used our credit cards without problems but only for monthsHe said he could wait for us to get a car loan, but meanwhile he made us sign a tentative bill of sale and leave a deposit of $cashHe promised unequivocally that he would return the full amount if we didn't get a car loan, we just need to show him proof that it has been declinedHe went on and on to say that this is a family business in a small town, everyone knows him, his father, his son, and we can trust him because he keeps his word.In the next business day, 9/9/- Monday, we went to our credit union to inquire about the car loanWe were informed that for this particular Jeep, which had a mileage of more than 139,811, they could lend only $3550, less than half of [redacted]'s $asking priceWe informed [redacted] about this immediately, and asked if he would consider options like lowering the price a bit or accepting installment for what the loan will not coverHe would not entertain these options so we said he should let someone else buy the car.[redacted] suggested we try another credit union, so we submitted an application to that credit union that same eveningThree days came and went and our application was still pending, we informed him of this, and reminded him that if it were disapproved, we should stick to our agreement that he return our full depositThe next day, Friday - 9/13/2013, the status of our application showed "DECLINED", so we sent [redacted] a PDF of this and said we cannot do anything more.He did not reply to these latter emails, so the next day, Saturday - 9/14/2013, we called him to follon our refundHe immediately launched into a fiery monologue about not understanding why we had asked for repairs, why the bank would lend so little for the Jeep, why we had wasted his time with the test drives and negotiationsHe was shouting on and on there was no way to talk anymoreHe finally said he was used to people wasting his time but he had no time to waste anymore and hung up.Three days later, Tuesday - 9/17/2013, we sent him another email stating our agreement and asking him to either mail the $check to us, or prepare the cash for pithat following SaturdayHe answers the next day saying we had forfeited our deposit to the repairs he made, because we called and emailed many times requesting those repairsHe said we could use it as credit for any future purchase at his shopHe further said he had to tie up a vehicle that could have been sold.We emailed back to clarify these facts: (1) The repairs were agreed so that we would consider buying his Jeep, it had nothing to do with the depositHe offered to return it in full, not credit it to another purchase(2) We emailed him about the repairs only once as a reminder, on Sunday - 9/8/2013, before we could apply for the loanWe had also called only twice: once on 9/9/when we asked about sales tax, and then on 9/14/when he gave that loud monologue(3) We had informed him within the next business day that there was a problem with the loan and he should offer the Jeep for sale.We can send you these docs/emails.Desired SettlementHe should simply, within the next few days, send a $check for:Ma Edweena [redacted][redacted]Durham XXXXXHe should not try any of his talking/deceiving tactics anymoreNo more communications from him, only the check please.It would be great if he could change his character, so others don't get deceived, but that would be too much to ask, right?Business Response Contact Name and Title: [redacted]Contact Phone: (XXX)XXX-XXXXContact Email: [redacted]@yahoo.com There was never any verbal agreement offered by myself to return $deposit if the buyers were not able to get auto loanThey said they were pre-approved with there bank and that financing was not an issueI told them the deposit would be refundable if there was any problems with the vehicle it self.Buyers insisted that we make some cosmetic repairs not pertaining to safety or emission warranty and actually called the following Monday to make sure we were completing those requestsWe made it first priority to have it do as they asked.after several emails and calls with questions about our warranty and if work was completed which it was ready that Monday, buyer called Wednesday and said there bank will only loan them $for Jeep LibertyI tried to explain that the low loan amount from there bank was due to there credit not our vehicle value.I made a suggestion to them of another bank they may want to tryA week later buyer called saying they could not get loan and wanted deposit, I explained that the cosmetic work they insisted be done to vehicle was completed and vehicle had been off the marketI would not return there deposit of $but I would give them a $credit to any vehicle they purchase Buyer was rude so I ended the call and after received threating emails that if I did not send them a check it would " burn a hole in my business" We been in business in asmall town for almost years and take pride in our Revdex.com rating.Usually if the customer is right or wrong we would just ncancel deal and return any deposit made, but this was different and theres principles involvedthank youFinal Consumer Response (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.)The dealer's answer is full of liesThere was clear agreement that he will return our full deposit if we did not get an auto loanWe have been honest from the start that we have not applied for an auto loan yet and are not sure we will get one, because despite our credit history being clean, it only spans months, and credit institutions want at least a yearWe did not insist on the repairs, only reminded him of our agreement to have them done were we to proceed with the purchaseThose were not cosmetic repairs either, one was an issue with the brakes which we said should be resolved before we would even consider buying the vehicleOur original complaint submission details all the dates and communicationsHis dates are inaccurate, we had informed him the next business day after the agreement, Monday - 09/09/13, that we could not get the car loan because of the low bank valuation for his carThe bank had not even checked our credit history yet, but the NADA Guides give such a low value for the Jeep Liberty with 136,800+ mileageI can provide a copy of all emails to prove these detailsThe dealer was ignoring our emails so I called a week after, but could not say a word after my greetings because he plunged into a very rude monologue and hung upHe lies that I was rude, I was polite and even started with an apology about the inconvenience, but he never gave me a chance to speak once he had startedSo we emailed him, giving an ultimatum to send our deposit back, or keep it and feel it burn a hole in his businessThis is not so much a threat as the truth and its natural consequence: the lack of integrity in his dealings will surely burn a hole in his businessWe would not waste our time running after $200, but we would make sure he doesn't deceive more people, which is why we submitted this complaint and will continue to warn others about this business.It is a surprise that their Revdex.com rating is good, the reason must simply be that other people have not filed complaints with the correct bureau, they simply vented their frustrations in other internet sitesIndeed we have read complaints about their lies, only too lateBut we have received excellent advice to file with with the Revdex.com, and we hope this will protect other consumers from this kind of business.Please allow me to submit a pdf of our emails as evidence of the real communicationsAnd please let us not allow this to just go around in circles like it now doesOur original submissions had all the dates and details, and the dealer tries to twist them with his liesThis lying is the whole problem in the first place, he should not be given an avenue to continue with his lies and waste other people's time and money
