I have bought cars from Quirk in the past. It's the first place I turned to lease a car for my daughter.
They advertise in the Herald a price for a lease on a Ford Escape S. I didn't want anything else. $99 per mo with 1999 down. I wanted only what was advertised.
I was paying all of the other expenses so I made it clear it was not to be wrapped up in the monthly payment. I was ready to sign UNTIL the dealer came back with a monthly payment 2x of that was advertised. $189 is a huge difference to the advertised price. I don't deal or haggle on an advertised price and I expect to pay that price.
I quickly walked out and won't return.
When a dealer advertises a price they MUST give that price. Their tactics were deceptive and in violation of GL c 93a.
Review about: Quirk Ford Advertisement.
Reason of review: Not as described.
I liked: Offered price of the car.
I didn't like: How the bait and switch tactic is used.
