PLEASE READ: We leased a Honda Accord for three years - loved the car BUT when deciding what to do about replacing it, my elderly husband took the leased car in for an oil change and mentioned we may buy it out or select another model - we weren't quite sure. Because of this, a salesman met with my husband. He had my husband initial and sign paperwork so that when we had decided what to do, the paperwork would be ready to go. Stockton 12 planned to contact my husband the following day to see what we had decided. The next day Stockton 12 was unable to reach my husband by phone and they made the ASSUMPTION we would be buying our lease out. We did not authorize any loan. Stockton proceeded to take the paperwork and process with Chase Bank our financing arrangements. Meanwhile, we had decided to go another route with a car and had NO idea about what Stockton Honda did until we were notified that we owned that leased car and to turn it in we needed to pay off the loan they had established. They had also added every item they could to the purchase price (warranties, etc.). We were informed by them that we could not get out of the Chase Bank loan they had set up and there was nothing they could do except remove the warranties from the loan which ended up being approximately $4,200!
We proceeded to go to Mark Miller to purchase our new vehicle. They were wonderful and able to get us out of the Chase loan that Stockton 12 said could not happen. Unfortunately, we did have to pay approximately an additional $3,000 to do this which has has hurt us financially. This was a dishonest attempt from Stockton 12 to make a sale and we are paying for it. In talking to others we have heard that this is typical. We are the unfortunate elderly victims of this scheme but would like everyone to be aware when working with this dealership. BEWARE!
