I have to share this story... it's just too funny!
So around 4 years ago I put (from what I was told) the 2nd $5k deposit on a Aston Matin V8 Vantage Roadster. AM didn't have a Melbourne showroom then so I had to fly up to Sydney to spec the car out... which I did for an 11am apointment on a Saturday. My now ex-gf and I turn up ... the sales guy is not there. Receptionist calls him... he forgot! Asks someone else to help me... at which point I crack the shits a bit. They can't confirm the colour combo I want so I have to wait 2 weeks - then they say I have to put another $15k down. Oh and by the way... your order number has slipped 15 places!
Anyway... I had a big fight with them and walked away from the order which is a good thing anyway... it was for $304k drive away... ouch!
4+ years on... I get a call from Trivett Aston Martin 3 weeks ago on a Monday... Dear Mr Igor... we noticed we kept a deposit of yours and would like to see if you're in the market for a car so we can put it towards a purchase!
Funnily enough I am in Sydney so i have a chat to the guy and tell him I will stop bagging the shit out of Trivett and won't even consider the idea of buying a car from them EVER if they kept my money for 4 years and now calling to sell me a car!!!!
I am polite to the sales guy cause he's new and it's not his fault... but I say to him... if I get my money, I'll even entertain the idea.
He says he will talk to management and call me within 24 hours 100%! I say to him, don't need 24 hours... you can call me next week.
That was 3 weeks ago. Not a peep.
WTF x 100!!!
