McCords Vancouver Toyota - Overcharged Oregon DMV Fees Refused to Refund Money Word No Good

I purchased a used Toyota truck during 2012 from world famous McCords Vancouver Toyota located at 10455 NE 53rd St in beautiful Vancouver, WA 98662 (360) 944-3001.
It is a good idea to check the integrity of any auto dealer before doing business. This will tell you if they keep their word.
After I had agreed on the sales price for the McCords used Toyota, Snake Loveham one of their sales managers advised me that the standard DMV fees for the transfer of title would be $292.50. Snake Loveham is a pseudo name and is intended to protect his real identity.
This used Toyota was a replacement vehicle for a totaled car which still had good Oregon plates and registration. I reminded Snake Loveham that I had good Oregon plates and a current registration and the Oregon DMV transfer fees were estimated at less than thirty five dollars.
Snake Loveham asked me if I trusted him. I reminded Snake that trust is earned. Snake stated he and McCords Vancouver Toyota were honest and McCords Vancouver Toyota would cheerfully refund any money that was unused.
Based on Snakes personal guarantee I reluctantly paid the $292.50 fully expecting McCords Vancouver Toyota to refund approximately $260.00 since this amount was unearned according to the Oregon DMV.
My complaint is McCords Vancouver Toyota did not keep their word. McCords Vancouver Toyota transferred my existing Oregon plates and registration, sent me a check for $102 and kept $160 of my money for themselves. Thank you McCords for answering the integrity question.
Here is the simple math $292.50 minus $30 Oregon DMV fees for the transfer of the existing registration minus $102 which McCords Vancouver Toyota refunded leaves $160.50 that McCords Vancouver Toyota pocketed.
I emailed Snake Loveham to get his side of this problem. I was not surprised that he neglected to respond to my emails. I called Snake Loveham up and Snake stated that he would look into it.
A year has come and gone and McCords Vancouver Toyota has not refunded my money. Now I am not trying to suggest that Snake Loveham or McCords Vancouver Toyota are dishonest.
You will have to be the judge of McCords Vancouver Toyota corporate honesty. I expected them to make some money on the deal. That is why McCords Vancouver Toyota is in business.
The issue is McCords Vancouver Toyota did not keep their word. And this is a big problem as new and used car dealers have questionable reputations in this department.
Whenever you purchase a new or used Toyota or any other brand get all assurances and guarantees in writing. If the auto dealer is unwilling to formalize all promises in writing we suggest you politely walk away.
For my part I can assure you that the facts as depicted in this critical review are truthful and very accurate. What leverage if any do consumers have over any type of dealership dishonesty?
Consumers vote with their wallets. Typically businesses that demonstrate any type of institutional dishonesty typically get voted out of business. It is all about their credentials. It is as simple as that.
If you have your heart set on a new or used Toyota car or truck there are twelve Toyota dealers in the Portland Oregon metropolitan area. Read those reviews.
Before purchasing any new or used Toyota vehicle I suggest you carefully check their reputation, references and complaints. Sweet dreams. Do not let your new or used car buying experience turn into a nightmare.
I like to be fair with everybody that I do business with. After a year of waiting my patience has run out. It is crystal clear that McCords Vancouver Toyota is not going to keep their word and give my money back.
The most important asset any business has is their reputation. I am not suggesting you avoid McCords Vancouver Toyota. Always research all business complaints first before you finalize the deal.
If anybody at McCords Vancouver Toyota says trust me, just say you do that is why you need all their promises and guarantees in writing. This is your personal anti complaints security package.
Check their integrity with your family and close friends. This is the group that is unlikely to lie to you. They should provide the answers to your questions. Always check the dealers integrity before you give them any money or finalize the deal.
If you are searching for a red hot auto deal and you live in northern Oregon or southwest Washington purchase your new or used Toyota from a Toyota dealer that you trust.
I can guarantee all readers McCords Vancouver Toyota did not write this review.
