So thus far there doesn't seem to be any sort of recourse I can take with this. Would MB even care? The guy I talked to seemed to imply that they do this so much that they themselves don't even know which cars have been shuffled from column 'a' to column 'b'.
Please, any more suggestions? My righteous indignation might be fired up atm, but I still think this is wrong, and there must be some way to correct it.
Horse sh1t - if they don't know what cars have been moved from "a" to "b", how can they have "discounted" the car since it's in the "b" column??!
In Louisiana, it's illegal to sell a car as "new" if it's not "new". I'd find it hard to believe it's not the same pretty much everywhere in the states?
Even if you got a stellar deal on the car, I'd :
1] Get the situation in writing for the dealer who sold you the car.
2] If you financed, did you finance as "new" or "used" car?
3] Write a letter to the General Manager of the dealership, cc'd to MBUSA outlining the situation and your dissatisfaction at what you feel to be a "shady" deal at best.
4] I'm hoping MBUSA (who got screwed by the dealer, from the sound of it) will be willing to push things in the right direction..
5] Find a local lawyer - sounds like something they'd take on contingency.
