Default Won ebay auction at 55.1K for GT-R, Honda of San Marcos

I won eBay auction item number 220823902975. I spent hours to watch this auction and won it at $55,100 sunday afternoon. As soon as I won I sent a email asking how would I make the deposit for the car. Monday Morning I called since I did not get a response. I talked with a Chelsea who took my call at 10am today (8/8/2011) I ask to speak with their internet sales person which is Randy. She tried to get me to Randy and finally said that he is there but refusing to take my call. I left a message with her to let him know that I am the winner of the auction and want to make the deposit and arrange pickup date. A hour later another guy called me said they are not going to sell me the car as Randy made a mistake and is out of town when earlier I was advised he was refusing my call and he is there. I advised I was unhappy that they are not going to honor the price and asked to speak to someone higher. He directed me to Ian at 512-392-1313. I called Ian and he said that they are not going to sell me the car for the price I won it at and if I want the car I will have to pay the price their asking of $59k.

I feel as what this dealership is a violation of Consumer Protection laws.

So far I have reported this to BBB, Federal Trade Commission, Texas department of motors, Texas's attorney's office.

I forgot to mention I called eBay and they said that the dealer has violated their rules. One they did not list the car with a reserve nor did they say that they have the right to sell the car to anyone or cancel any bid. So I filed a eBay claim as well.

You should be able to pull this off. My friends dad got a motorcycle for like 1k and it was brand new because they didnt list a reserve. He took it to court and won.

This sounds like the story of the guy who won an M3 on ebay and the dealership refused to sell it to hi for that price. It made national news and was all over the internet.

Seems like your case is pretty cut and dry but still make sure you are documenting everything!

Congrats and if you acquire the car how do you plan to get it to Alaska. Have Palin drive it for you and she can take you in the twisties all the way to Russia since she claims it is right next door. Good luck and looks like a sweet sweet car for a slick price if all goes smoothly.


Edit links uploaded and hosted incase ebay removes info somehow or dealer tries to do something fishy.

Hope eBay backs you up on this.. they are pretty poor with their "protection" practices.

Complain all you want but it will get you nowhere.

eBay is a scam. The seller has no obligation to sell you anything. He can just say “Vehicle no longer available.” Area code 512 is Austin, Texas? The seller knows that you are not going to file a suit in Texas, and fly back and forth to claim your car.
