BUYER BEWARE 10/8/2008

recently my wife and I have been shopping for a newer car. We picked out a vehicle we liked at Marathon, and put up $3500.00 for a down payment. After driving the car for almost a week, they tell us that they need more information for bank approval. My wife's mother agreed to cosign for the loan, and they assured us that there would be no problems. The next day, they call again to say that my wife needed to sign some more paperwork. When she arrived, they tell her that they need another $1500.00 for a down payment, or they could put her in another(which she didn't like) for another $500.00. When she refused, they then tell her that she could have the original car we picked out for $500.00. At this point she called me, and I showed up to let them know that we would take our business elsewhere. When I arrived, they tell me that we could still have the car if we paid $400.00 instead(they were planning to give my mother-in-law $100.00 of our cash for cosigning the loan!). We gave them back the keys, and asked for our down payment back, at which point they tell us that they cannot issue a check for 10 business days, because our check had not cleared yet. The following morning, I contacted the bank to stop payment, and I discover that the check had cleared 4 days earlier! At this point I am STILL having to deal with these shysters to get my money back! I would strongly suggest looking elsewhere for a vehicle. Pros: none Cons: con artists more
