Posted this in the lounge, I figure I should post here too. Let me know what you guys think.
So I purchased a "new" GTI last week Thursday. Dealer said the car was ready so I had my girlfriend pick me up and we drove over 100 miles to pick up the car. Got to the dealer, no car.. They said it was coming from a different dealer but they didn't drop it off yet.
I was disappointed and annoyed that I had to drive so far to come to no car. I let it go and figured I might as well get all the paperwork finished so I can just pick up the car the next day when it gets delivered.
Signed papers and they told me they would give me the 0.9% apr for 60m through VW. I drove down again the next day and picked up the car.
A week later they told me to come back to figure out some paperwork. I recently opened up a subsidiary of my dad's company in a different state. They required personal bank statements but I choose to use my credit card and directly pay off the balance through the parent company's checking account instead of depositing into my checking then paying off the card.. I guess credit card statements paying off the the balance of 5-7k every month wasn't enough proof so they financed me with a different bank at 2.19% increasing my monthly 10$.
I accepted this, even though we had agreed upon different terms. I just wanted to get everything settled and done. HOWEVER, while reading the contract again, I noticed that the car changed from new to USED. I asked about this and they said it was because I had driven the car for a week and now that I drove it is used. I took their word for it, signed and was ready to leave.
Then something caught my eye, there was a large note on my file that said something along the lines of, "Used car from (other dealer), this was an UNWIND!" (that means someone bought the car, drove it off, and had to return it because their loan didn't get approved.)
So basically they sold me a used car, telling me it was new.. And I left paying more than what we originally agreed upon. I don't know how I feel about this, I found out AFTER signing the papers again because I was informed otherwise. I feel somewhat lied to and not as happy with my purchase anymore. If I hadn't seen the note on my file, would I have never found out?
What does everyone think.. Should I be upset or just deal with it.. I don't know what to think anymore.
