Do I need legal help?

Sorry for the long post. But I need some advice.

Around the beginning of March I decided I was going to order a new jeep wrangler. I contacted numerous dealers in my area (Via email) to see who would offer me the best deal on my custom build.
After locating the best deal I went to the dealer and placed the order.
05/10 I placed an order for a 2014 jeep wrangler unlimited willys edition. I put $1000 down to get the order placed which I placed in person.
On May 18th I finally emailed jeep customer service and they provided me with my von/vin number. They eventually told me my jeep was scheduled to be built on June 27th and should arrive to my dealership by July 11th.I send the dealer a detailed list which included no test drives and to keep the Jeep in the back until I could pick it up. Which the dealer agreed it was no problem.

Well here is where it gets interesting.
I had a buyer lined up to purchase my current vehicle when my Jeep came in. On June 7th I was involved in a bad accident in my current vehicle which was not my fault. The 86 year old lady's insurance decided my vehicle with $18,000 worth of damage should be fixed.
June 23rd I was notified that my vehicle was going to be a total loss due to frame damage that could not be fixed. Well on the same day I was notified my Jeep was in.

I let the dealer know I was involved in an accident in my current vehicle and when I get it paid off I would be in to pick up the jeep.
Well as of July 3rd I still have not received payment on my truck which the insurance company said it should be no later then Monday/Tuesday (7-7/7-8).

I told the dealer on Friday the 4th That I should be in no later then Friday the 11th to pick up my jeep. I got an email later that day from the dealer that said I had to pick it up this weekend or they would sell it.
I responded and told them we had a deal and that I would be in no later then 1 week then they could sell it if I didn't pick it up by then.

Well I got an email today it was sold and that I could wait another 6-8 weeks if I wanted to order a 2015 which they would price match to my current deal.

What are my options? Everything was done over email so I have quite a paper trail.

BTW there is not another JKUWW with my options within a 500 mile search.

Thanks
Mike

That is ridiculous that they sold your Jeep. I would complain to Jeep corporate, get my grand back, and find another dealer.

Order a another one , getting a lawyer is not going to help anything execpt maybe getting your deposit back

Why you may ask because you are not of anything (execpt deposit ) you didn't have a sign deal , they didnt really owe you anything because of no sign deal

We signed a deal in order to put the deposit down. I have a copy of that paper work also. I knew dealerships were shady but still this is a new all time low. Especially since I already waited over 6 weeks.
This Jeep would have never been on the lot for them to sell if I did not order it.

How will legal assistance help you? A lawyer can't build you a 2014 JKUWW. Long before any lawyer could do anything for you your 2015 would be in. Any monetary loss on your part would be tough to demonstrate, and they've said they'll do the same deal for you.

I feel bad for you for both the wreck (hope you're physically okay) and for the lost 6-week wait for your Jeep. But at this point you won't actually be out anything -- the remedy is to make the dealer provide you with a replacement, and they've already said they'll do that for the same price.

I believe there are people in the Club Willys thread who waited 12 or more weeks for their order because it got pulled for an inspection and sent back through or something. So there's no guarantee on the delivery date.

As bad as it feels, I think in the end you need to decide if you want to either take whatever 2014 Jeep is available somewhere in the U.S. that you would like, or place your order ASAP and be among the first to get a 2015. No lawyer can change those options. It's possible a lawyer could write a letter and get the dealer to ship you a WW if it could be found farther away than you've searched. But the dealer has lawyers too, and may just turn it over to them if you get yours involved.

Sorry again for your situation...

If you have a done deal then go in and find out what happen and maybe since they sold your jeep tell them to give back your money since you don't have a jeep

I understand but I would be without a vehicle for the total of the wait for my new jeep to come in plus I would miss most of the summer with my jeep. I guess if they would give me a Loaner jeep till mine comes in I would be some what ok with that. But have you ever heard of a dealership doing this to a potential buyer?

You probably have no legal recourse and what you do have will quickly burn up the $1,000.

Ask the dealer if they will refund you the $1,000 since the order was not delivered. Then look into another since they may sell the next one from underneath you. All too often, it is not just about getting the best price.

Perform a nationwide search on the specs of JKUWW you were looking to order. Most shipping costs around $1k from coast to coast. Use a backup dealer to find it. They may be able to undercut the existing dealer for the amount you have invested (1k) including shipping depending on the deal you received.

From a dealer perspective, you could have completed the transaction regardless of your other vehicle situation. They just don't know.

On your side, what they did was kind of shady... the fleet/internet manager should have been able to stand on that vehicle. However, if the GM saw a deal where they could make substantially more selling the "ordered" willys because it was "rare" some will do it in a heartbeat, even selling it out from under their own mom.

Sorry man.

Loaner Jeeps are unheard of unless you paid full price++ for it, then they might stick you in something

Does the paper work say anything about a deadline for you to pick up the Jeep? As with any dealers and probably a lot of other business, they have to move "merchandise". I don't think it's even worth it to involved a lawyer, you know it's not worth their times.

Not always true. I did a trade in last week for a willys JK that was in transit. I bought it at invoice then minus dealer holdback except $50. In other words they are making almost nothing off of me. Should be able to take delivery by the end of this week. I gave them my 2012 mustang gt and they gave me a brand new sport JK to drive till mine comes in. It had 33 miles on it, also has the power package and connectivity. I'm getting spoiled with the power package though, since mine will be powerless. I did add power locks and remote start that will be installed by the dealer.

There's a different between "by the end of this week" and 6-8 weeks. Dealer might not be as generous with longer wait period. You can put enough miles on that thing in a few weeks they'll have to sell it as a demo.

Unless you have a family friend or other legal resource that will work gratis, retaining a lawyer will likely cost well over your returned deposit. Of course you could always threaten leagal action to see what the response will be - but I am guessing it wont be the one you would prefer.

I would be upset as well, however (and BTW, I have NO love for dealerships!) your accident was clearly unexpected and while not your fault - was also not the dealers. From their point of view, they were expecting a positive outcome since the vehicle they ordered for you came in quite a bit EARLIER than they expected. In their minds, this was a good thing and prior to your accident, they would have had done deal on the 23rd.

Unless you have something in writing AFTER the accident that talks to the specifics of the delay from the accident, there isnt much you can do.

I would ask for the deposit back OR keep trying to have the dealer locate another vehicle. I know its tough without a vehicle, but did you have rental reimbursement from your insurance company? If you had NOT been planning on getting a new vehicle, what would you have done with your primary vehicle totaled?? Maybe get the at fault drivers insurance company to pony up for a rental.

I'm not too sure how it works in the states but an ordered vehicle is a sold vehicle unless you specifically say that you no longer want the vehicle and lost your deposit.

I highly doubt that your WW has ben delivered to the buyer yet so if I were you I would go to the dealer ASAP and take delivery of your Jeep. Tell them you are there to pick it up as per you signed sales agreement. I understand you may not have the funds yet but even if you have to get an open loan and pay it off when the insurance company comes through

like everyone said, you rarely win fighting dealerships, see if your deposit back and walk away, go to another dealer, check for reviews online, they helped me find my dealer and they've been nothing short of great with me. the way i see it, the worst you can do is just let them know that you'll be letting people know how shady they are...bad publicity never helped anyone.

You could get a lawyer but the most they might do is get you your $1000 back. I mean, are you going to sue for pain and suffering. Doubt it. I'd take copies of the paper work with you, ask for the the grand back and if they play hard ball, show them the copies and tell them they are in breach or contract. You might have to swallow your pride and order from that dealer again but if you can get the money back, I'd take it and find another dealer. And don't talk to the salesman or even the sales manager. Go right to the the guy in charge.

Bottom line, you might have a case but the remedy just isn't worth it. Why do you think they did that? They know they have you over a barrel with the deposit so they can do what they want.

Just order the 2015 and move on. You'll get a 15 for the same price as the 14 and if you made a good deal then this is worth it to get the 15.

Hey All,

Or go on Judge Judy. One or the other of you will look foolish and it will come down to what is on the written contract and written proof/recordings/texts/etc of all extenuating circumstances.

I'd say go for the 15. Good Luck!

Seriously. Why would you want your deposit back? Just actually be ready to consummate the deal when it comes in this time. Dealer's not going to do that again. The quickest and cheapest way for you to have what you want is just to reorder with the same guy.

Go find a local attorney and make an initial consultation appointment.

After hearing that either they will not accept the case or that the retainer is going to cost X thousand dollars, you will know what an attorney can or cannot help you. He/she may be willing to give you some suggestions concerning what you can do, if they decline your case.

They might be willing to write a letter for a fee reminding the dealer that they have your 'deposit' and it would be in their best interests to return it or renegotiate a deal satisfactory to both parties. Not everything goes to litigation as some here suggest.

There is often little or no cost for a 15 to 30 minute consultation.

I don't think there is a legal recourse for you, but I'd be damned if I did any business with them in the future.

Get your deposit back.....then proceed to let everyone know who the dealership is and what they did. The goal isn't just to cost them your business, but other people's business as well.

First, let me say that this whole situation you find yourself in stinks, and im sorry this happened to you. That said, Most car insurance policies have car rental riders. Since you are out of pocket for a car accident, you should be covered. I think most are up to $50 per day. And since you don't have vehicle because of accident, you will be covered. Car dealer will NOT give you a Loaner for the amount of time it will take to order new Jeep. Car insurance rider will probably cover that amount of time. No different than a lengthy repair that can take a month or more to complete.

Second, unless you got a smoking hot "deal" from this particular dealer, I would ask for my deposit to be refunded and look elsewhere to order my next Jeep! If you belong to Tread Lightly, you can get 1% below invoice. Also, some other dealers can do slightly better than that. I don't know where you live but there is Fields and Koons that would never do you wrong like that.

WOW!!! I am always amazed how people never want a dealership to make any money at all. A post on this thread even bragged that he only let a dealer make $50.00.

You know, A dealership does not have a CEO making Millions of dollars like the CEO of Chrysler, and dealers did not receive any money from your paycheck to bail them out when America quit buying cars like GM and Chrysler did.

Not to mention that fact that these corporations are not a part of your community and do not add money to your local economy. The dealers do. As for the "Sales Goobers" as a post in this thread has called them, these are fathers and mothers in your local community that work long hours, some 9 in the morning to 9 at night and 6 days a week, and don't get off on Saturdays to go see their kids play ball or get to even afford the money and time to let their kids be on the same travel baseball team you kids are on. Not to mention the abuse by you the consumer who will lie, cheat and steal just to get bragging rights on who cheated the dealer the most.

Also, it seems that most of the general public has no qualms about spending hundreds of dollars for shoes at list price at a national corporate store for shoes made by slave child labor in China but yet do not want to let the guy who sits 2 rows back from you in church to make a living wage. Some of the worst at this are Union guys and gals who swear by the "living wage" doctrine and talk so much about buying American, but yet when it comes to buying their cars, will look at the sales person and tell them they don't care if the salesperson doesn't make a dime.

Yes, the dealer principle makes tons of money, and most seem to be the greediest folks in the world. I mean GREEDY!!!!!! but so was Sam Walton and everybody goes there and pays list for some cheap made in China pieces of $%^t that breaks in a few months just to go do it again. All the while Wal-Mart is in the news for not paying a living wage to their employees.

Folks, the bad guys in this world are not the locally owned dealers, but he huge corporations that run our government. This includes the huge war machine that Dwight D warned us about at the end of his presidency. Come on, think about this, How can Dick Cheney afford all those heart operations? Off of the cost of war and letting our children die and live lives scarred by the horrors of war. If it was me, they would have let me die years ago, and I am a veteran of war.

Now on topic.... The dealership has spent a lot of money to get your Jeep on the lot. Not to mention that the order slot taken up by your vehicle that they could have ordered something else. Now some would say that $30K or $40K is not a lot of money to a dealership, but lets face reality. That is a lot of money to anyone. Everyday that car sits there is more money the dealership is spending on having it there. Not to mention, everyday it sits there the risk of something happening to it while they are waiting for you to get you finances together.

There is no doubt that it was unfortunate that you had an accident, but as another post had stated, you still could have went and taken delivery of your new Wrangler already. A simple interest finance contract does not charge extra for early payment that you can make when the insurance company(maybe the biggest crooks besides politicians) finally pays out. Others do, but not a simple interest contract. After all, the dealer has stood by what he said they would do and got you the vehicle you wanted, but you have not yet done what you have stated you would do by going and taking delivery of your vehicle.

Now quit crying and go do what you said you would do and pay the man for doing what he said he would do.

One last thing. I was reading another thread on this forum the other day and it was all about how someone found a girl who had to get rid of her Wrangler for what ever reason. The poser stated that the girl did not know what she had and he was able to get it for WAY under the actual value of the Jeep. As stated in his own words, he was able to steal it. Now all of us talk this way and yet we have the nerve to say that dealers or thieves and crooks.

One last thing. The dealer will have no problem giving you your money back as long as they sell the Jeep or you take delivery of it. They really want to sell cars not just keep your deposit.

Getting a lawyer would only make future transactions more difficult with this dealership and delay your 15's arrival. They have a legal team at their disposal and they are not gonna be the least bit frightened by a $150.00 letter from a lawyer over a paperwork issue. The dealer is not holding your $1000.00 ransom or asking you to pay more than agreed upon. Everyone keeps suggesting "trying to get your deposit back". You never stated they wouldn't give it back or that you even requested it back. The day they sold "your jeep" you should have taken their offer and just ordered the 15. I bet no other dealer will offer that and they know it. Dealer's while sometimes shady are not totally stupid. A deposit on a signed order form is not the same thing as a bill of sale. They did not sell anything you owned. They still owned that Jeep (and while I don't agree with their actions) could sell it 20 minutes after you didn't come get it. I like the Judge Judy thing, but that is small claims court and JJ would again say they didn't sell anything you actually owned. They did sell something you mutually agreed they would order for you, but that grand was to protect them from you going elsewhere for a better deal or walking away and leaving them with more inventory. Good luck. I agree it sucks and you kinda got shafted, but take this as a chance to get a full model year newer vehicle and know that in 10 years when you go to sell a 10 year old model year versus and 11 year old model year you'll get more for it.

Why the hell didn't you just go pick up the Jeep? You could have financed it and then just paid it off when we n you got the money. Waiting when they told you they wouldn't wait makes no sense.

Hey All,

Dagg you beat me to it - Exactly - I see the OP as expecting the dealership to accommodate his financial situation as part of the deal. There is no obligation of any kind to do that. In fact I suspect the OP was "okayed" to buy the jeep without any trade. If that is the case the OP could have gone in bought the jeep accepting the much higher payments with the OP taking the risk and the cost of not having that trade value as part of the deal. The OP wanted to transfer that burden to the dealer protecting himself by saying wait - trust me. In fact I suspect the OP would not have gone in and bought the jeep until he had the cash in hand from the other buyer even without the accident. What if the other buyer said he needed another week to get the cash together to by the vehicle that was wrecked? Dealer supposed to accommodate that too? Dont work that way in America. The OP probably could have bought the jeep and when the money came in refinanced. Bet on the roulette wheel - live on the edge - if you dont your taking up too much room my son says. But dont blame or try to transfer your bad luck to the dealer. Why should they care? It's just business - take the deal they are offering you - or not - your choice.
