IS A PERSON 'LIABLE' FOR STATING THE TRUTH?

BRING IT!






CAVEAT EMPTOR - PART III

© - Tom Hyland - 2/13/11

‘BUYER BEWARE!”

That’s the English translation of the Title’s Latin.

My Complaint is about LIBERTY FORD
In Randallstown, Maryland.

Part I - Told How it took over Four Hours to
‘Negotiate’ a Deal and actually get my Car.
Then, the ensuing Ordeal to get them to Replace
The Defunct Battery, which was Never Checked!


Part II - Told How I got ‘Bamboozled’
And Did Not Get what I Thought I Got!
It also Warned that Banks and Credit Unions
Do Not Use KELLY BLUEBOOK VALUES -
They use NADA!

Now, Part III - Is the ‘Clincher.’
I Received a Letter from LIBERTY FORD
Stating that I HAD to bring my car, 2007 Ford Fusion SE
In for ‘Recommended’ 35,000 Mile Maintenance.

When I called to find out just What it Was -
Tire Rotation - Battery Check - Air Filter - and a few other Minor Things -
No Points - No Plugs - No ‘Tune-Up’ -
No Dings - No Pings - No Rings!

So What Would it Cost -
For this Wondrous Waste of Time?
ONLY $299.99 !
No Less - No More - Not even a Dime!


Is There a ‘Punch-Line’?
Oh - For Sure! You Bet Your B-P!

Free Tire Rotation - For Life!
Free Oil Changes - For Life!
Free Car Washes - For Life!
Free What-Evers - For Life!

ALL VOIDED -
If you Don’t Do ALL the ‘Recommended’
Maintenance THERE!

LIBERTY FORD -
Every Day & Night -
TV Info-Mercials by Jerry Springer -
CONNING PEOPLE -
To Be a Winner!

GUARANTEED $5,000 TRADE-IN - SURE!
FREE THIS! FREE THAT!
C’MON DOWN!
WE’RE WHERE IT’S AT!

‘BAIT N’ SWITCH!’
THAT’S OUR MOTTO!
BUT - YOU WILL LEAVE -
WITH SOME KIND OF AUTO!

( and Bigger Payments than you Wanted )

P.S.
Can I put in an Air Filter Myself? For about $14.00?
Pay about $19.95 for an Oil Change? Four Times a Year?
Is that Smarter than their ‘FREEBIES?’

CAVEAT EMPTOR!
BUYER BEWARE!
DOES LIBERTY FORD ... REALLY CARE?

Ah yes indeedy! I love this Tom. You certainly get what you pay for since you've (I've) already paid in advance for all their "freebies." What a rip-off. Thank you for sharing the witty rant. Love and peace to you,

Regis

All this from a guy who admitted buying a certain bridge. Yes the definition of "free" seems to have been painfully distorted. Dealers are notoriously crooked. I just got milked for $800 bucks at my local chevy dealer for a missing screw on the throttle assembly that I'm fairly sure began with an oil change at my local Jiffy Lube. I'm not missing a screw now. I got a good one. Patrick

I used to think so, until the Cheapie $19.95 Oil Change place didn't replace my oil drain plug, and blew my engine!

CAVEAT EMPTOR, indeed.

Jeeze, Tom! And here I was, getting all set to drive from Westlake Village in California to LIBERTY FORD In Randallstown, Maryland, to get one of their super-duper deals.
Thank you! Your words saved me about a six thousand mile round trip... Whewww!!

"DOES LIBERTY FORD ... REALLY CARE? "

Yes they care, but not about you, they care about money...yes change your own oil or have it done at say Sears, & rotate your tires at the same place...DO YOUR OWN AIR FILTER, if needed...as just because they say you need an air filter, doesn't mean you actually do...if you can see the sun through the fillaments it still has life, if not then change it...Ed
