Van Chevrolet - Dealership Scam

Van Chevrolet - Dealership Scam

I recently had a deal cancel out with dealership Van Chevrolet. I was sold a car being told the finance was approved at a 4.59% interest rate on July 22nd. I was called a week and a half later being told it was never approved and I had to resign at a 10.9% interest rate. This was not something originally agreed to so the deal was canceled. While I had their Camaro for that two week period I received a ticket for not having any temporary tags on the vehicle, nor any temporary registration in the dash. The ticket amounted to $300 which I had no way of proving I just purchased this car. I have not been able to get this dealership to pay for this ticket. Furthermore, my trade was majorly damaged on the paint on the front hood and bumper when i went to pick it up and drop off their car. This would have had to have been deliberate after the car deal went bad because two weeks on a car lot cannot just strip paint off a vehicle. Also, I still do NOT have my title to my trade.

All I wanted was to buy a car, and since it was approved at a price I was looking for, I wanted to cancel the deal. Not have a vandalized car back, and a ticket to which the dealership is at fault for.

On top of all of this, a speeding ticket I was issued on July 29th (one week after false purchase), has a different registered owner on that car's VIN#. It has his personal address and full name. Does this mean that the car I was driving off their car lot was never registered in my name? What would happen if the car was reported stolen during that timeframe? I have pictures of the tickets issued, and before and after pictures of my Honda Accord I initially traded in showing extensive paint damage after I got it back from Van Chevrolet.

These guys will scam you without letting you ever talk to the GM. They literally escorted me off their lot when I demanded to speak with Chuck Mullins the GM.
