This doesn't even make sense to me as it should be a nonissue. My background is automotive sales, 24 yrs as a finance manager,8 for a Chrysler
dealership and 16 w/a GM store in the metro Detroit area. There are times, thru rookie mistakes or in a rush to put a deal together, the sales
department makes a huge error. It happens. But if there's a signed contract and the car is delivered, meaning left the lot, it's done. If the
customer doesnt feel inclined to come in and resign an adjusted contract, you eat it. Period. Nothing else to discuss.
The idiot here is the manager who called the police. In truth, his job was probably threatened for missing the error and responsibility for the
deficit falls on him. Thats part of a managers job, to check facts and figures and approve it all as a dealer representative, on behalf of the dealer.
This sounds to me like a two bit manager who was trying to protect his own butt, and in truth, now just opened the dealership up to a huge lawsuit,
which they'll lose, not to mention tarnishing their name any further.
I'm sure, once the monies are collected from the managers paycheck, he'll no longer be employed.
