#26 of 1099 ***UPDATE** BBB AUTOLINE IS CRAP AND IS ONLY FOR GM'S BEST INTEREST
Sep 03, 2003 (8:40 pm)
I just got the results back from arbitration yesterday! In summary, I DID NOT GET WHAT I WANTED OR BETTER YET “WHAT I DESERVED”!!!
The verdict is as follows:
Give GM 30 days to fix your concerns. When repairs are completed, drive the vehicle for 30 days and if you are not satisfied we will reconveign the hearing and I will come up with my decision.
This is how it went down:
The hearing lasted 4 hours. (Wow, it was long) I gave my side of the case; GM gave their side of the case BLAH BLAH BLAH. GM did nothing but put up smoke and mirrors. Their main case was claiming that I purposely left me vehicle in the shop to create a paper trail. Please Note: Every time I put my Yukon Denali in the shop I get a Ford Focus to drive. Why would I NOT want to pick-up my car? Anyhow, I used the following problems to support my case:
Noisy drive train: The arbitrator drove my vehicle and recognized the problem. She put in her report that the problem is a manufacture defect and that it impairs the safety, use and value of the vehicle.
Flickering lights: The arbitrator drove my vehicle and recognized the problem. She put in her report that the problem is a manufacture defect and that it impairs the safety, use and value of the vehicle. I also submitted my “Police Warning” issued to me for having a unsafe vehicle. She acted like it was no big deal that I am driving an unsafe vehicle in the laws eyes.
Tranny hesitates when shifting 1st to 2nd: The arbitrator drove my vehicle and recognized the problem. She put in her report that the problem is a manufacture defect and that it impairs the safety, use and value of the vehicle.
GM had their rep drive a new Denali to the hearing to support their case. Reason being, GM claims that all my problems are CHARACTERISTICS of all Denalis. After driving my vehicle, we all drove the new Denali that the rep brought. It performed perfectly. No noises from the drive train, no flickering lights, and tranny shifted perfect. The arbitrator commented to GM and myself that my vehicle has several problems and the vehicle GM brought had NO problems.
Overall, I felt as if I won my case. She recognized all my problems and noticed that the other vehicle (the one GM brought to the hearing) was flawless. Therefore, I was happy because I felt GM’s vehicle helped prove my case. Furthermore, the GM rep stated that he did not want to work on my vehicle for fear of making the problems worse. With all this said the ruling was to allow GM one more chance to fix my truck. Let me state for the record that they have has 3 attempts at fixing my truck and a 4th and FINAL ATTEMPT to fix the truck. Now, the arbitrator wants me to give them a 5th chance to fix the truck.
Any suggestion would be helpful. I guess that GA Lemon Law is next because I do not want them touching my truck anymore. The BBB works in GM favor!!!

It certainly would not hurt to investigate the lemon law. I would give them the attempt that the arbitrator requested. It will probably fail at which point the arbitrator will probably rule in your favor. Your other alternative is a lawsuit.
Sep 04, 2003 (9:01 pm)
juice 22, you are 80% of the way to getting a ruling in your favor. That is a quicker path to resolution than you would get if you filed suit immediately. In 60 days (30 days to fix and 30 days to drive), you get an award. If you filed suit, you would not get an award any sooner. (And it might take significantly longer....) Unless I am missing something, take the BBB finding.
#29 of 1099 GM Dealer wants to redo a signed contract for more $$$
Sep 05, 2003 (7:33 pm)
Last Friday I took delivery of a GM suburban Z71. The price out the door came to under 41K, inlcuding tax. I gave them a check for 15K and financed the rest for 0%. I was glad to see that my payments would be under $420 a month. I think it was a great deal. Until now ......
The dealer wants me to come back and redo the paper work, reflecting a price that would make monthly payments close to $475. They are saying that there was an error in the paperwork and GMAC would not approve the loan.
I do not understand that. Everything is clearly stated in the documents I signed. Everything is normal - all typed up and signed. The only error is that the price is not what they intended to sell the vehicle at.
Just looking for opinons and suggestions. Off course my options are:
1) Re-sign a higher price
2) Tell them that I am willing to return the vehicle if they give my 15K back.
3) Tell them what is signed is signed ! Would they re-do the papers if I overpaid?

there was a similar series of back-and-forths a few months ago. basically, it isn't a deal because the third party refused the financing. you have the car by the grace of the dealer, infuriating as it sounds. I would want to know exactly what the error was, who made it, and how in hell come there is another 50 bucks a month involved. if it turns out the dealership signed off as "dan scratch" or something else designed to kill the deal, they need to make you good on one side or the other... the cash and any trade back, or meet you more on your side of the original deal IMHO.
but if all three options they presented are rejected and you sit on the car in the garage throwing things at them when they come around, they can stick you for felony fraud for their mistake.
you want to see the general manager and have it all explained in words of two syllables or less and exactly what they are going to do for you on losing the interest rate. then you take one of the three options. there isn't much in-between.
on my 2000 exploder, my X-plan contribution was not reflected in the paperwork, and I didn't notice. two weeks later, I got a check back. at least some folks do make adjustments your way when they find the errors.
#31 of 1099 Contract redo, ctd.
Sep 06, 2003 (10:13 pm)
Do you like the truck? (Most important question, because it determines how to proceed....)
Presumming the answer is yes, then you may be able to press for a "negotiated" re-signing along the lines that swschrad describes above. If the answer is no, then they have to return your down payment if the truck is returned. They may ask for some sort of depreciation charge to reflect the use of the truck, but I personally would let them attempt to convince a judge why they should be entitled to an injury on top of their insult.
#32 of 1099 contract redo
Sep 07, 2003 (6:13 am)
I've asked them to submit in writing why the contract should be re-done. They have refused and are insisting that I come into their office and discuss.
I do not want to go to their "office" and get pressured by the entire dealership staff into another contract. That would mean that I have two contracts for the same truck. And I do not want that.
I have reviewed the contract many times. There is no mathematicaly errors. Everything is spelled out clearly and when I signed the contract I was told what the payments would be. I do not think GMAC is rejecting the deal either , because essentially thay want me to take a bigger loan for a higher monthly payment.
The reasons that have given sofar on the phone range from miscalculation on sales tax, GMAC rejecting the deal, "please save my job..." and finally "we will recover the vehicle".
I have no problem dealing with them, but I can not take their word of mouth. I have to protect myself and therfore need in writing what their issue is.
