Re: Dealer refuses to honor SRT10 certificate orde

I just got off the phone with Robert myself. We had a disucssion about the obligation of a dealer to a contract - and I pointed out that they wouldnt even have that Viper in their showroom without having someone with a valid certificate having ordered it. He seemed very reasonable and we spoke at length about the problem at hand and ways of resolving it.

As stated, the dispute is around the price of the car. Robert says they have no contract signed that stipulates a price. And that is the crux of the dispute.

Robert indicated they very much want to resolve this matter with the purchaser. They have asked me to relay the message to have them contact him to discuss a price that would be acceptable to them (he did say that it would not be sticker, as in below sticker).

I would suggest that Billy give the guy a call and ask him what price he is looking for. Then compare that price to what you thought you were going to pay and decide if the money is better spent fighting this or resolving this.

PS: Robert also indicated a VCA Member called and threatened one of his managers. I would think that would be discouraged; although pressure to honor an agreement would seem reasonable - threats are not.

Re: Dealer refuses to honor SRT10 certificate orde

Thanks, guys. VCA Member or not, thats just plain wrong. Turns out the dealer agreed to seel the car at Invoice plsu taxes, etc. The "new" owner doesnt want to live up to that agreement.

Will be interesting to see where it plays out.

Fucking dealer wouldnt even have the car if it wasnt for the guy's cert.

Wow, That has me worried as a Friend and myself both have vipers ordered from a dealer in Texas where the owner has changed, Never figured that angle. I hope the two dealers do not talk before mine comes in.

Re: Dealer refuses to honor SRT10 certificate orde

Here's a link to the dealership owner's profiles:

Latest is that the dealer says they are working on a resolution with the original buyer.

I found it curious that when the buyer was in the showroom they were quick to point out that Dodge had nothing to do with the transaction; now they want 48 hours to "work with Dodge on this matter".

Lastest in the VCA thread is that the guy got his car at the preagreed upon price!

Yeah you can say that. The word is that people were calling the dealer every day and hounding him about the way he treated this guy and the dealer finally folded.
