Ford dealer doing wrong?
Okay, maybe i dont have a complaint here at all. but i recently purchased a used 2003 ford f250 and i personally have complaints about the dealer that i didnt have at the time of purchase. one complaint i have is i never once mentioned talked about or any sort of getting a loan on the vehicle. i payed straight cash and said that from the beggining. Yet they ran my credit anyways which i never knew about was told about or i never told them too. i found out because i looked at my own credit score and it was on there. and it even lowered my credit score since it was noted on my credit score as a hard inquiry.
Second, the dealer said they needed to perform a safety inspection before selling me the vehicle. i said okay. they said everything was good. but i was looking around the vehicle closely after i got it and i noticed both rear leaf springs have 2 out of the four leafs broken, on both sides. to me that is not safe, if i hadnt noticed it and pulled a trailer and the other two broke, i believe i would have a rather serios problem on my hands. i may be wrong about that, it might not be a big deal if they all broke but i think it would. was the dealer wrong by not disclosing this problem to me?
and finally just to make me feel better if i have a complaint about the above two things, in colorado it is illegall to drive with a cracked windshield if it is in the field of vision. which the cracks are, i obviosly noticed this when driving it and wasnt going to say anything but because of the top two reasons i am not a little upset with this dealer. so bassically is the dealer allowed to sell a vehicle that is not legally able to go on the road?
Sorry about the rant and the questions and i may not have a complaint but to me even if i dont a dealer should be more honest then this. im not even saying they had to replace the springs but just disclose them to me. any one?
