Default Richmond Hill Hyundai - warning

A friendly follow up email after a visit to a local dealer:

Hi, *** and ***. Thank you for your reply, which I do not need to waste any more time to follow up with you. However, I would appreciate more if you had not taken my precious time on a Saturday which I could meet more potential clients and sold few more cars. Luckily, I had a repeated client who appreciated my premium service and bought a car from me on that day, otherwise I would have no deal on that day which I had spent few hours with you. If you had no intention to buy a car from me, you both should not have taken few hours from me, you ended up giving an offer which was way lower than our cost and bought a car from someone else. Thank you for your attention and appreciated that you had given me a valuable lesson.

Must have been his first day on the job if he considers spending a few hours with someone who then doesn't buy a lesson.

And verbally abusive too. He was trying to attack by saying if I can't afford the car, I shouldn't have gone to the dealership and wasted his time.

I could have complained to management right then and there but decided I had better things to do with my time than to argue about non-sense. Then he decided to send this followup letter. Now how retarded is this?

The email has been forwarded to Customer Relations at Hyundai Canada and I have called them but there doesn't seem to be any urgency on their behalf to correct their sales rep's mannerism.

I wouldn't count on much happening. One dealer here in Edmonton is absolutely horrible, everyone has a bad experience with them. They've lost my keys and refused to replace them, sold a car I had a deposit on, lied about work being covered under warranty, refused to fix problems that a car had before I bought it.. Everyone has similar stories. All you can really do is try to raise awareness of problems you've had through threads like this one.

Are you talking about NorthStar?

Morphia32: That's incredible. I have a friend who is an ex-car salesman. They make a huge commission off a sale and this guy is complaining about getting only one? And even more appalling is his grammar! Ouch.

Speaking of selling a car that was sold, that's what he was trying to do. He claimed the purchaser's credit fell through and I can have the car if I paid what that person paid, which was full MSRP. I'm thinking, seriously?!, somebody actually bought a car without any negotiations? It's not like I am buying a Bugatti Veyron. And besides, that person should have first opportunity to make payment in some other form. This sales rep claims to have worked for Hyundai for 4 years now.

Just raising awareness so that the next person who walks into that dealership won't be as stupefied as I was.

See? I don't even need to name the place and people know where I'm referring to

Lol when I was looking for a genesis. The one dealer let me test drive a " pending sale " which then they said it fell through. it was a 2l genesis. I beat the piss out of it. Figured it was ok but still wanted to think about it. Well they said I couldn't buy it when I called back to say I'd like to drive it again since I was iffy on the severe vibration of the shifter. So I went elsewhere and it turns out they lied to get more money lol and both the other guy and me bailed on it. Since it was " sold"

End result from my test drive I ran over a bunch of nails and phucked the tires
The tranny was phucked I guess from defect
The vibration was the engine being phucked

So I got lucky. Bought a 3.8 through a reputable dealer. Happy this far
