PRICE GOUGING

Lorenzo Ford - PRICE GOUGING
UPDATE TO A PREVIOUS FIVE-STAR REVIEW: IF YOU ARE A WOMAN, DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT. THEY WILL TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOU. The deal was already not working. I already wanted to leave. but against the better of my judgement, I stayed an extra few minutes to hear out the general manager, Diego, when he came into the room to salvage the situation. Diego gave me a final vehicle price of $17,000 + $1,000 for the gap insurance, bringing me back to the total of the vehicle price I was comfortable with of $18,000. I put a $3,000 down payment to cover essentially what would be taxes and fees. They have me a steep interest rate of 7.99%. The monthly came down to $412 for 54 months. Steep. But in my naivete, I signed the pad they handed me without looking. I trusted everyone at the dealership at this point. it was not until my return to South Carolina, 750 miles away, that I opened my financing documents (conveniently tucked into an envelope when the Finance Manager, Fernando, handed it to me at the dealership) that I saw he listed the CASH PRICE for the vehicle at $19,100 (after a $500 sales tax - outside any registration and dealer fees) in excess of almost $2,000 above the agreed-upon price of $17,000. This price gouge essentially making my $3,000 down payment useless. I purchased a vehicle from this dealership in December as a Christmas gift for myself after having driven the same car for the last 13 years. And what should have been a pleasant experience has turned into a nightmare. I have been trying to reach out to the dealership for a month in hopes of solving the issue - perhaps it was merely an error - but I have not been able to hear back from anyone and everyone so conveniently is now either on vacations or in meetings. Even the internet sales manager Orlando has gone MIA. The General Manager, Diego, has refused to give me any type of correspondence despite my multitude of calls and emails. Very evil. Very disappointing. Please take your business elsewhere especially if you are a woman. ORIGINAL REVIEW 12/24/2023: Thank You, Mr. Frank Grullon, for helping facilitate the purchase of my next long-term vehicle; for going above and beyond, making me feel understood through my anxieties, and even checking in to make sure I made it home safe. The only things that could have made the experience better were not any things anyone had means to control: #1.) being that I I wish the extended warranty went further in mileage for its coverage and #2.) being that I truly look forward to better finance rates in the future. Even through these hurdles, the entire team worked with me to make sure I did not leave empty-handed. Thank You to Internet Sales Manager, Orlando for initiating a conversation and facilitating my arrival in Miami; Sales Agent, Mr. Frank Grullon, for being the absolute best one could ask for; the Finance Manager, Fernando, for his patience and willingness to present to me all possible scenarios; and The General Manager, Diego, for dedication to customer service in making this purchase possible. Happy Holidays and Thank You once more for my new car. Sincerely, SP

*** WARNING* From a victim of Lorenzo Fords bait and switch marketing tactics concerning a work van. Lorenzo Ford posted a pic and details of a nice work van.Upon phone inquiry I was assured several times of a certain price. I was invited to come by and purchase the vehicle. Upon arrival I had to ask for a certain person which I did and after a lengthy wait in a dingy lobby where you can almost expect to see *** fights, I was then met with a salesman who then asked a line of salesmen who wants to show the van out back? They sheepishly looked at each other and then one said, "I will". We then went to the very back where an old run down van was located. Nothing about the van was as listed and every detail in ad was incorrect including the picture. Then after being assured several times of one price 500.00 the final price went from a pre- discussed, determined and promised of $500.00 to overwhelming increase to $3,000!! And all the while he was saying "Don't worry I got you"! I was fed a fake ad and reeled in by dishonest means and with Lorenzo's only sole intention was to commit an act of Fraud upon me. Shady atmosphere, Terrible and fragrantly unlawful, dishonest scam shop. I left without a vehicle and have since been told by Lorenzo that I just didn't understand the price and that a dollar $1 is 2,000 dollars in vehicle pricing. They weren't even interested in any other facts of fraud and abuse.Thats because its not unheard of at Lorenzo and therefore not a surprise. But that it was my own fault.SadSad
