LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) — A local used car lot is under fire tonight for allegedly doing bad business.
A man told 6 News he bought a used vehicle at Dice Auto sales and a week later the car stopped working.
According to the Better Business Bureau, this isn’t the first or second time customers have complained about getting bad cars from this lot.
Nathaniel McGee, 67, retired from General Motors after 32 years. He now works at MSU as a caretaker. McGee says his job is important to him and he likes to get to work early every day.
McGee says he was no longer able to do that after buying a used Chevy Suburban from Dice Auto Sales.
“They told me they had work to do. They told me they would call me when it was ready and ready to go,” McGee said.
But McGee says when the dealership returned it, that wasn’t the case.
“When I got him back, they hadn’t done anything. $3,000 in cash. Look, I’m retired, I’m a senior citizen, we’re not going to buy cars to put in the garage to watch,” McGee said.
The 67-year-old says he got a service warranty on the truck from Dice Auto Sales, but they refused to carry out the necessary repairs, forcing him to take his car to another mechanic and leaving him with a bill for close of $1,000.
According to the BBB, several complaints have been filed about Dice Auto Sales in the last year alone.
“It was either I went there, and I tested a car, bought it, and then a few days to a week later something broke,” said BBB’s Ashley Gibbard.
6 News went to Dice Auto Sales for more information. A man we spoke to said the owner was unavailable. He later admitted to being the owner, Jeff Dice. Dice claimed he had never heard of Mr McGee and had never bought a vehicle from him.
McGee says he’s not looking for extra money, he just wants the necessary repairs to his truck taken care of.
“I want this vehicle fixed and repaired properly and pays the bill, pays the bill,” McGee said.
