"The dealer responded ... but I wish they hadn't. I was lured to this
dealer by a seemingly great deal on a low-mileage 2011 Toyota
Camry. It seemed too good to be true -- and IT WAS!!!
I live about 85 miles away, so I wanted to be sure the car was
there before I took a half day to drive there and back From the very
first time I spoke to the salesman, he was very vague about
details about the car. He gave me virtually nothing that was not on
the website listing, and he seemed much more interested in
reassuring me that he had plenty of other cars I would be
interested in the mileage and price range I was interested in. He
must have mentioned that at least half a dozen times.
So I scheduled a day to drive to Pryor and check this car out.
Unless it smelled like death or had a bent frame, I was planning to
buy, and I let him know I was very interested. The night before, I
checked the site to make sure the car was still listed. Not only
was it listed, the price had dropped another $500! At first, I
thought that was great, but then I got suspicious. Why would they
drop the price when they know I am coming the next day to buy it
for $500 more?
So I read the cargurus.com reviews of the dealership, and a
common thread began to emerge. I saw 2-3 people (out of six)
who, like me, were enticed by a seemingly great deal -- but
shortly before they arrived, they were informed that the car they
were coming to see had been sold, but not to worry, there were
lots more great deals. One guy drove 149 miles one way, and got
the call when he was 8 miles away.
I was a bit luckier. We had a slight delay in leaving town, and I
decided, based on what I had read, to call and make sure the
Camry was still there. When I looked at my phone (which was on
silent), I saw the salesman had called just 10 minutes earlier. He
assumed we had already left, based on the appointment time I
had made. And when I called him, he said that he was very sorry,
but the Camry had been sold ... but they had plenty of other great
deals. Right. Bait. Switch. Oldest trick in the book.
Needless to say, I did not drive to Pryor that day -- nor do I ever
plan to (at least not to buy a vehicle from hucksters like these
guys). Even if they tell you the sky is blue, don't believe it. By the
way, the car that supposedly was "sold" on July 12 was STILL
LISTED on July 18, and I think it is still listed today (July 27).
Looks like the link is still live to me. How is that possible?
Here is the link to the phantom car:
Good luck. My next call will be to the Oklahoma Attorney
