Default Did this dealership do something illegal??

Hi Everyone,

A few weeks ago my dad went in to (Paragon Honda) to lease the Honda CRV. I was the one that advised him to get a Honda CRV because of the great reviews on the car... Definitely not the dealership.

Despite my dad having an excellent credit of 787 he was told by the dealership's financier that he did not qualify for the lease promotion due to the fact one needs to have a credit score of 800+ to be eligible.

To make matters worse, after signing the lease - he spoke with another customer who did qualify for the lease promotion. My dad finds out he qualified for that promotion despite having a lower credit score

I also noticed that he has the Honda Care Sentinel plan. Considering he is only leasing a brand new car for 3 yrs/36k miles I don't see the pt in having this. I called Honda Financial today to cancel and they said they couldn't because the dealership had put in the purchase price at $1 ???

I feel they have done something illegal on so many levels here. I just wanted to know what people's thoughts are on this and if I should be reporting them to the BBB.

Looks like they have a ton of complaints

B- Rating on BBB. From reading a few of them it looks like they've made some effort to resolve some of the issues... could be a good avenue to go down.

And ****ty reviews on Yelp

Honestly, why did you not do 30 seconds of research into these guys online before doing business with them? Sounds like they're shady as ****. Sorry for the mess, car dealerships can be such a pain in the ass!
