Anaheim >Corvette Mike
Terrible experience buying a car from them.
I bought a 1969 Corvette from Corvette Mike without seeing it and was made comfortable by them that I wouldn't have any problem and don't need to come see the car. I was admittedly foolish enough to buy my car without checking it out first because I thought that I could trust that Corvette Mike (a well known Corvette Dealer) wouldn't misrepresent anything significant. I asked for lots of photos, asked tons of questions about the condition, and they even made a video of the car that they posted on Youtube for me. They also told me that they sell cars all of the time and never had anyone complain (I guess until me). What I found upsetting was after getting the car there were items that they specifically didn't photograph or point out to me before I received it. Additionally, immediately after receiving the car, I brought it to a Corvette Specialist to go through the car and they found around $3,000 of fixes that needed to be made. I paid a good amount for the car and don't think it is reasonable to have over $3k of non-disclosed issues Day 1 on a car from a "Corvette Dealer". I have been speaking with the salesperson at Corvette Mike that sold me the car for the past 3+ weeks since I got the car, and was hoping that they would provide a fair resolution. At the end of the day they are not willing to do anything for me. I know that all of these items are fixable and that it is a very nice car - this is not the point in my mind. The point to me is paying a price for a car from a dealer that misrepresents some significant items. These were the non-disclosed issues in no specific order:
1-Windshield wipers don't work (vacuum is leaking)
2-Convertible top doesn't latch to rear lid (strikers are missing). One of the photos they sent actually had the top not latched in the rear and I asked about it and they told me that the previous owner never snapped it down because he didn't want to scratch the paint (there are scratches all over the rear lid and clearly they knew the strikers were missing too)
3-Parking Brake doesn't work (needed adjustment but sold to me with no brake gripping at all)
4-Driver side window needs a new motor
