Yesterday I went to the dealership that I leased a car from to purchase the car now that the term is up. After signing the paperwork I’ve realized now that the car I purchased on paper isn’t the car I’ve been driving for 3 years. I leased a 2016 and all the paperwork I came home with lists a new 2018 model on it with a VIN of car still sitting on a dealer lot elsewhere in the state.
I read each document before signing and I admit my eye went right past the model year and I don’t have my VIN memorized but isn’t this a rather large “messup” by be dealership? I financed the purchase through the dealer but have not heard from them today.
Other than comments on me being dim for signing the dotted line on a car I haven’t checked the VIN for I’d be I interested in hearing thoughts. I’ve been vague on purpose but the make is “above” a Honda and “below” a BMW. Anything I should look out for when I engage the dealership? How should I approach the situation, communicate with the sales guy or get in touch with the GM? Expect a 2018 upgrade because both sides signed a dozen documents? I’ve spoken with a couple car guys and neither have heard of this happening.
Thanks in advance.
