I was looking for a New Chevrolet Silverado Truck. I went to the website TrueCar.com. I entered what I was looking for and this infomation went to six Dealerships that had something close to what I was looking for. I recieved several emails with trucks, options and price from these dealerships as well as phone calls. I was not in a big hurry to just jump at any price. I talked to several Dealerships while I was trying to decide exactly what I was willing to pay and with what options. I was interested in a truck at a dealership very close to my home.(Demontrond Chevrolet) Westside Chevrolet dealership was one of the ones I had talked to.This dealership was about 60 miles from my house and did not have the truck I wanted. The ones that they had were higher priced than what I was wanting to pay. I received a phone call from someone calling themselves Todd @ 10:16 am on Monday 9/15/2014. He told me he had a truck that he needed to move and would give me a great deal. He told me in no uncertain terms that he had a $47,000 MSRP truck that he would sell to me for $37000. I was at another dealership(Demontrond). I had just pulled in but was still in my truck. I told Todd to email me the information on the truck and I would leave and go back home to look at it. So I looked at the truck and I had asked for a picture of the window MSRP as well. I called Tood and I asked him again that this had to be a locked in price for me to drive that far. I told him repeatedly that I would only drive 60 miles from my house to your dealership for a great deal. He still said it was a locked in price at $37,000 plus TTL. So I said I was going to head that way. On my way I called him back to confirm that this was not a truck that a dealer had driven and what was the mileage. He told me less than a hundred miles, about 50. I said ok and again said this truck price is $37,000. He said yes again. I got to the dealership and he was outside and met me. He had the truck right there and so we got in and he shows me all of the options and how to work them. Then he said let’s go for a test drive and we did. We got back and went inside and the next thing I get from another guy(Hussein Hylton I think) is we can sell you this truck for $42,000+. I looked at Todd and I said you told me $37,000. He meekly said I told you I would try to sell it to you for $37,000. The other guy never asked Todd if he had said $37,000. It smelled of bait and switch or whatever you call it. I said no deal and went to the bathroom before I left and I was so mad that I couldn’t even pee. I was not even asked to negotiate on the price. I am certain that this was a SCAM FROM THE VERY START. I know I had asked about the price 3 or 4 times. WESTSIDE CHEVROLET RUNS SCAMS ON PEOPLE SO BEWARE. I am one of them so I know firsthand.
