Last year I attempted to buy a 2013 Ford F150 Platinum from 5 Star Ford of Carrolton Texas, suburb of Dallas. snipped
I did all Carfax stuff. Truck checked out perfect.
Most of it on top of the high roof,There isn't any clearly you failed your due diligence on the purchase ! Even a clean car fax you should do a complete walk around ! Even so if it was on a medium or high roof who says they even knew?

I bought it already and they delivered it to me.I hate to read this thread and the other threads on delivery damage.
I know how hard things are to spot in the sun (maybe its my eyes) but renting cars when they are wet after just washed etc on the walk around, hard to spot and hours later , hmmm scratch as well as windshield chip not visible in sun.
best recourse is publicity?
how would anyone know?! terrible
so sorry op
ps op, are you going to change dealers?
or I take it you already drove off lot?
Wow, how can they get away with stuff like this!Last year I attempted to buy a 2013 Ford F150 Platinum from 5 Star Ford of Carrolton Texas, suburb of Dallas. It was also "Certified." I was given the useless typical sales tactics, such as, "we have others interested in this vehicle," "it won't last long..." nonetheless it was above average sales pushing to move this truck. I did all Carfax stuff. Truck checked out perfect. But I told my wife that something is going on with this vehicle. I couldn't figure it out, confusing... My daughter, owning a State Farm agency, prompted me to ask her to do a extensive search on this truck. Having a data base that could give more knowledge to this vehicle. One hour prior to signing on this truck, she calls me with the insightful news that a $10,400 claim has been filed on the truck. Hail damage!!! Guess who, to this day denies any knowledge or wrong doing in this attempted "Ford Certified purchase?"
1800-cleo or whatever that fortune teller thinggy wasso how does an average person know if not related to your daughter lol or have your gut intuition?
I have heard many shortcomings to the carfaxes and true car et al. services
Lake,Would you be willing to divulge the name of the dealer? I am also in Michigan and in the market for a transit and wuld like to stay far away from this dealer.
I sent an email asking for them to help me make this right. Crickets, more crickets, nothing from them!
