Palmen has been screwing people for years and years.
I was in the porcess of buying new car from them back in 1986 when they tried to pull some sh*t with my on the price of the car and my trade in and tried to get me to finance with some unheard of finance company at a higher rate then the bank. I told them to go pound sand and walked out never to return.

There are a lot of places that treat their customers like dir, but they stay in business, cause people keep going back. WHY?

I bought all my vehicles from Bell back years ago - never had any issues with them. Palmen was always known as rip off artists - even to us DCX employees.

Everything is an issue.
It's when they become problems, that you need to start worrying.

I can fairly say that Palmen Motors is one of the last business's succeeding in this generation that is still run and supported by pure integrity. I was pleased to find out Andy Palmen won this court case.

I had a problem that could have cost me a couple grand. A salesman at Palmen told me that a $2000 rebate only applied to owners of similar vehicles who were switching brands, or some such nonsense. I went to another dealer and got my 2000 discount with no questions.

Yeah, I've heard that line before too.
There's also the customer loyalty discount.

Anything to get suckers in the door.

Car salesmen are good at convincing people that something the size of their pinky is 12 inches.

andy palmen did not win the case. He settled out of court before it went to a jury.
