To Dunkin donuts. Don't let volume has nothing to do with protecting you commerce city. Wow. Okay, you were we're going to take it won't do commerce cities work. All right. We will Cindy arapahoe Kia. What happened with arapahoe Kia? Hello. Hey, what happened with rep okay are there home? My father used car from them about two months ago. Okay, how what kind of used car like really older? What tell me about the car? Two thousand two Volkswagen GTI, how many miles one hundred and fifty seven thousand miles of people are just begging for trouble when that happens, and it was as is I'm sure what is the problem is, what is the problem about two weeks ago? The check engine light came on. Okay. Took it in hazard. Been wondering when where did he take it? Well, he I took it to like an auto zone or something like that. So they could tell him what the code on the computer. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Was misfire. Sure. We took it into a neighborhood auto repair shop. They do oil changes minor repairs. They did a turn up. So when my son picked it up the mechanic, said is the check engine light comes back on you probably are going to need some work because we found oil on the spark plug. A bullet speed today. What is the problem is the engine gone? Yes, engine now Cindy, I want to have a conversation because I know that you're intelligent, and I honest to God do not like bearing bad news. I wanna help people as much as I can. But sometimes you buy something as one hundred fifty seven thousand miles. I take it, you didn't have a scope put on didn't send it to a shop to have to full pre purchase. And now the engines gone, you do know to split get right to the. Black and white, and then see what we can do. But in the black and white sense. There is nothing. I mean, that's it. You bought a car. That's a lemon. Absolute probably not even a limited last one hundred fifty seven thousand miles and needs an engine. But here's the here's the big question. Cindy did. And before you answer. Because everyone answers in the affirmative. Okay. Everyone does. But think about this. Did they lie or cheat? You did they defraud you this. I don't know. This is what the used car sales manager, told me. Our rights ago when I went in there. He said that caller sort of been sold to somebody that knew that they were going to have to put some money into it. And I said, wait a minute. When I bought the car, I had a couple of questions about the age of the car, the amount of miles on the car. You're salesman reassured me that it went through all the checks, and that it was a solid car did it ever when beyond their lot? Okay. And I believe you. But can you prove that will that guy because that would be that hold on? That's good enough right there to get them if he would say, yes, I told her, it was a solid car, and otherwise, it wouldn't be on the lot. I mean but Cindy, here's the problem, it says as is so are they willing to fix it or to help, you know, they're not willing to fix it? What thing so that they would do is I, they were going to only give me they want to do in the double screw job. They want you to tack it back. How much did you pay for it? I paid forty one hundred dealer handling you pay you paid at least twice as much probably probably you paid probably three times what it's worth, and I don't doubt that and you get help Cindy why you get help. I was kind of stuck between a rock and a hard place. My son had a Subaru WRX that was parked in front of our house, and somebody came down our street imploded into it. And his car told I hope it wasn't in Conroe anyway. Listen, listen. Cindy what, what right now right now you're out what, what questions you have us because in a pure sense, they don't have to do anything you have a car. You have a car that's worth. Absolutely nothing. Nothing exactly. Because the whole repair for the engine for the suspension is gone, a lot of thin you would've known they would have found this in a pre purchase. Right. He said my mechanics at all they had to put it up on a list, and they would have saw that the suspension was gone. And I said, and that's all you had to the last two months, and he said, no, no, but that's all you had to do. That's all you had to do. What are your plans? I hate. I hate telling you this. Cindy. I'm just hoping that, that people listening will say my God, I'm never going to let this happen. What's the name of the dealer? Arapahoe kia. Oh arapahoe Kia now. It's not like they're a bunch of, you know, are they? Well, Mark do we have problems with the rap? Okay. Abi a did. I can't remember one. What are you, Dan? What do you think arapahoe kid does it come to mind with you? We've had different ones on. Oh, Kia Honda. Both of them and stuff. We've had complaints on. Okay arapahoe. And so they won't do. I don't think you're oh by wanna know what they're offering. Go ahead. They're offering a, a train been of the Volkswagen a thousand dollar trade-in on a two thousand eleven mini Cooper s hardtop with forty nine thousand miles on it and how much you have to pay well seven thousand so wait a minute. So are they going to take the seven, and then the unpaid balance, and, and put it into a new loan? Yes. So I would have the new hone approximately twelve thousand one hundred dollars on a what year on a two thousand eleven many Cooper wants forty nine thousand miles on it. You know, it sounds like it is your job. But it guess what? It's a better. Screw job than this one or a worse grew up. That's what I wanted that this is a whole purpose of me even contacting. I'm wondering if they would do a favor and just take out all the profit from the mini Cooper deal. That's what they've told me. Come on. Yeah. Exactly. Can somebody now really Premark or ten thousand you shouldn't? You should help them, you know what? No, it was as is. And all that. But you should you should talk to these guys are all talk to them, which what is which Cooper, is it? The convertible. The countryman the hardtop for Cooper s with the turbo the only way, this would ever work honest to God. I'm going to tell you the straight up. I mean this when I say you're screwed no matter what you do. All right. So do you want to be screwed for more? Or do you want to just keep it like this? Just have your lumps and go out and just be done with it. I mean, this is what I what I I can't decide or air you or you. So listen, you say that it was detrimental reliance. And you sue them in small claims, I'm serious, by the way, you sue them. And you say they lied to you, you and your son say they lie to you, and you take the small things, what's the worst going to happen? Nothing. What's gonna happen? I mean you say they lied, you, they'll say it's has isn't all that. Maybe you get somebody with sympathy. And you say, look, there is no way this could have happened. This car was a piece of trash, of course. You know, they wanted to fend themselves. They say you were free to check it out and all that you're going to you're going to get all of that. But it's. Either that it's either that or you take a lesser screw job. And on the on the lesser screw job. You, you have a car and the only way it would ever work is if your son truly would keep the full four or five years, the trade on this things under five grand even with the low miles for dig. So they're saying. But I. Oh, we're not taking. What is the difference? What is the difference? They want her hold on. Hold on their giving you a thousand dollars of that car. They say so what is the difference that you're paying a, it's a seven thousand dollar difference? Yeah. The mini Cooper, they're telling me that is, they're selling to me for seven thousand dollars, plus the trading plus thousand trade trading. So they're saying that's an eight thousand is sixty one I understand that part the benefit of the votes. But they're saying that, that car is worth eight thousand dollars. They're saying it on their site for ten but they say they're selling it for eight to you with no profit while they know she's not going to check it out either. All right. Hold on. I gotta take a break. Right. This is ridiculous. Just hold on. We have one at federal and Louisiana. Another.
