Ford Dealer claims I owe them money...who is in the wrong?
The next day I sold my truck and left work on my break to head to the dealer and pick up the car. Now when I got there the finance manager was busy so the sent me to see the other finance manager. I was told to write a cheque for a specified amount which I did, and handed it over to be added to the deposit I had already left the day before. For some reason the number felt light but I asked the finance manager to confirm the amount and they did so I proceeded to write the cheque.
I did not get any extras despite my negotiations and the sales manager was reluctant to even give me a free oil change.
I went back to work and on about my day and haven't thought about since the last 3 weeks have been incredibly busy with work and home with kids.
3 weeks go by and I get an email today from the dealership stating the deposit and the cheque collected are for the wrong amount and that I owe them $530.00 more dollars.
Now I went back to the original contract and technically they are correct.
This was a cash deal, they did not discount the price at all or even throw in any extras outside of a tank of gas, and the finance manager read my the amount to write the cheque for twice.
So my question is this fair? They made the mistake, they have already made thousands off me and after 3 weeks now are coming at me with this email.
I feel like on principle I should not have to pay this and they should just write it off as I am sure they marked the vehicle up anyways.
What would you do?
