I just read this review on a dealership's website. It upset me at two levels. One, I'm wondering how could this salesperson sleep at night and Two, how stupid is this consumer to not read the paperwork he is signing. I would like to hear your thoughts.
My wife and I went in to buy a 2014 (Vehicle Name) at XYZ Motors in Fort Myers, Florida we looked at a few cars and the salesman said he had just the car we wanted.was a 2013. They arranged the car insurance for me through my agent I thought they were being nice but did they do it to keep me from seeing the car was a 2013? The arranged my loan through my Credit Union was this to keep me from seeing it was a 2013? A week later when I realized the car was a 2103 at the LeeWay car pass office when they read off the car registration it was a 2013. This is the first time I realized the car was a 2013. When I called the Salesman, he said you signed the paper work! It’s my fault I just signed the papers where they told me to I did not read them. I thought they were honest people. Another lesson learned at age 65. I want to warn others as to how this dealership works. They took advantage of me and my wife and never said the car was a 2013 I want to let others know buyer beware.

Is this kind of activity acceptable at your dealership or in our industry?
Do we just have to accept this as part of the status quo of auto retailing?
