After months of issues with used car dealer, man gets new ride following call to 2 On Your Side
BATON ROUGE - Ever hear the phrase "if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is"? That's the case after a man bought a car that took him on a bumpy road.
Corey Montgomery reached out to 2 On Your Side recently about a car he bought from a used car lot in Baton Rouge. He was having trouble getting his title and license plate from the salesman.
"Once I realized I couldn't get the paperwork and stuff, the title and all that, I stopped paying them," Montgomery said. "I paid them to do all that. It was all in the contract."
Montgomery says he bought the car from a used car lot on Florida Boulevard in June 2020. He was told he'd have his plate and title within two months. He never got them.
He contacted 2 On Your Side in March, and the problem was resolved soon after.
"I called everybody," he said. "Nobody seemed to make no move, but when I got in touch with you it was simple. You kept me posted on everything that was happening, and a week and a half later everything was done."
The salesman reimbursed the money he spent on the car, and Montgomery went shopping somewhere else.
