What happened to "I have proof I bought the car".. and show them the paper work before being arrested? There's gotta be more to the story than whats being posted.

I would have pulled the paper work out of the glove box and showed them I do indeed own the car and the dealership is nuts.

Suing would certainly be an option in my book. I hope more is posted as the "case" progresses.

Police are not lawyers (They are familiar with V&T and criminal laws... it doesn't make them familiar with all laws). They can only act on a complaint. I'm sure he did pull the paperwork out of the file, that's probably what took four hours to get straightened out.

I would hope they considered filing charges against whoever made the false complaint...

This is probably one of the silliest stories I've ever heard. It's now going to cost the dealership a lot more than the $5600 error....

This is a crazy story. Hence have a prior relationship with an attorney or two BEFORE you need one. As soon as the harassment started, he should have gotten his attorney involved.

They screwed up the contract, tough rocks, hire more qualified people next time. It appears to be a legal contract.

J, that resign the papers is one of the oldest tricks that dealerships use. And they typically will change the terms of the agreement in the process. While your issue appeared to be nothing more than a simple document error, I don't trust dealerships any further then I can throw them. I learned an important lesson years ago. Something kept bugging me about the deal that didn't make sense. It wasn't until I returned the lease car and six months later reviewing the paperwork that I finally found their scam... They double booked the %^&($@ leasing fee.

Don't ever buy a Chevy.

When I was in the military and stationed in California I had a green card holding Mexican under me. The guy would be listening to the spanish radio station in the mornings in the shop and one morning he was jumping up and down and laughing histerically. We asked him what the heck was wrong with him and he said the Dealership did a radio commercial saying they would give brand new Chevy's to any illegal immigrant with only a little money down and a utility bill to show an address.

He said every illegal immigrant in California's going to be getting fully loaded Chevy's and drive them across the border and never pay for them.

....And shortly thereafter GMAC's bankrupt. Sure Chevy showed cars moving for a couple years but none of them ever got paid for, they were given away.

Hope this AMERICAN takes the Dealership and Chevy to the cleaners.

General Motors should have stopped Bill Clinton's Quadrennial Defense Review. He axed hundreds of thousands of blue collar Federal Wage Grade civil servants in DOD along with entire military units. So the money freed up could be used abroad to buy off people/countries. Those middle class workers WERE the buyers of GM vehicles.

Once Clinton axed all the active duty vehicle mechanics out of DOD and replaced them with a couple cheapo contract workers and leased DOD vehicles....it was game over for General Motors.

On 'paper' they showed it was 'cheaper' to start leasing DOD vehicles. I laughed my rear off when they leased a Chevy SUV for a military base fire chief and he had to pay $16,000 to paint it "Fire Chief" with all the correct colors and markings......and in 24 months the GSA charged the military another $12,500 to paint/fix the vehicle back to original so they could take it back and sell it. ....Would have been cheaper for DOD to BUY the vehicle in the first place.

GM.....let evil happen. I'd NEVER buy GM. Hope they lose their rear...AGAIN.
