Why do certain dealership do not do full disclosure's on the vehicle's they try and sell to the public?

Asked by Mar 01, 2015 at 10:11 AM about the Dodge RAM 250

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

February 28th, went to Beaverton infinity to
buy a 2001 dodge diesel Laramie 4×4.

After a 35 minute inspection of the truck by
me, found that the truck had been in an
accident of some kind!! The entire front clip
had been replaced, most of the steering
assembly was new.

Black paint was fresh and found overspray
on the truck, left door did not shut properly,
damage to front corners of bed on both
sides, passenger front seat not bolted down
securely, inside cab front dash cracked,
heater only works on drivers side and
middle, cup holder broken and dangling
wires behind glove box!!

Clearly,  this truck was in a accident!  I
showed the salesman and also told the
sales manager,  they both said it was not.

It did not appear on their carfax report
I offered to buy the truck anyways,  but at a
much lower price. They did not except.

The salesman Randy was extremely
helpful! ! But the short bald sales manager
was rude and very much an Ass!!

Dont buy that truck people!!! Until you can
get a mechanic from another party to look it

I have bought a handful of motorcycle's
from Bob Lamphere in my day! My
experience with the auto side was horrible!

I hope someone will speak up to Bob and let
him know, his sales manager need to be
honest and respectful to their customers! !

This truck is 14 years old and could have had a hard life. The damage and repairs could have been from an accident, for sure. But perhaps this truck was used by a construction company or otherwise seen hard use plowing roads for a county or state road department. Little used car lots typically get their inventory from auto auctions and know about as much about their vehicles as you and I. You did the right thing! You carefully inspected the truck then walked away. That's exactly what I would have done. Good job!! HTH. -Jim
