Statement of Claim
Claimant says:
"I want to return the lemon to the used car lot DBA F.M. Jones & Sons. Dealer posted  on Car Guru with false information and pictures in the ad.  I had to make a payment over 3 days due to limit on my debit card. On 2/27/22 I had paid $4397.82 total out of $5905.53 which was over Kelly Blue Book especially when the car was only in fair to poor condition. I said I did not want to buy it anymore due to the tachometer that I had become aware of that was broken  It had no buyer's guide in the passenger window and major defects. I never had the car in my possession untill 2/28/22.  It stayed at the lot for 3 days while i drove my trade in without the title. The GM Bill Rogers refused to give me back the title to my trade in and refund my money.  I expressed multiple times to multiple people that I did not want to purchuse it anymore.  I even called the police to ask for their help because I was being intimidated and bullied into buying it. 2 days into having it in my possession the morning of 3/2/22 it would not turn on and said to check gauges.  I had notice the gas gauge had not moved at all and once I put gas in from a gas can it started.  I let the Bill know it was majorly faulty and wanted to return it.  He refused and told me to talk to his lawyer. Saying "there will be no return, I should call him everytime something went wrong"  NO BUYERS GUIDE WAS POSTED IN CAR OR DID I SEE ONE
I dont want to do business with them because the are fraudulent dishonest and horrible to customer.  I want to return the car and get my money back.  I paid out of my pocket no loan.
Inoperable Accessories were tachometer, analog gas gauge and digital gas gauge do not work."

  • March 6th 2022 the car will not start at all. I was stranded and had a mobil mechanic come do a scan. It reads the Crankshaft position sensor is broken along with the gas gauge. I have not even had this car a full week! Dealer refuses to speak with me because "Sugar goes a lot further than vinegar. I will tell you that" Quote made to me by Bill Rogers General Manager of F.M. Jones & Sons. What a pigheaded sexest thing to say!! I bet he would not say that to a man that had a complaint about the scam he pulled

What Claimant Wants Hide
Message from Claimant: The gas gauge was on full when I drove of the lot. You are lying. I never cussed or yelled at you. I informed you in text and email before 72hrs of having the car in my possession that the gauges were not working. You told me sugar goes further the vinegar. Why wouldn't I be upset? You sold me a car in poor condition for over kbb for good condition. THERE WAS NO buyers guide anywhere on the car. You "fixed" the tachometer and with in less the 72 hours the car would not turn on. It has completely STOPED turning on with a code that the crank shaft position sensor is broken. Funny that that sensor has to do with the tachometer. You treated me horribly because I am a girl..You would never had said the things to a man you said to me. taking advantage of a single mom that had her tax return to buy a reliable car and you sold me a beater lemon... The only time I spoke to you on the phone was Sunday Febuary 27th when I no longer wanted the car because it was faulty and over priced and the ad had fake picture of the tachometer "working". I had not paid for it in full and you had the title to my trade in and told me "I was not getting my money refunded nor the title for my trade in back(which you made me drive rather then the car I was trying to purchase. That is because you knew it was faulty and if I would have driven it for those 3 days that would have been very obvious
1. Refund my money and take the car back Mar 29, 2022 $5,995.00
Cash total : $5,995.00

    Claimant should take a look into the lemon law in your state because right now you only want what’s rightfully yours back if laws have been broken you can walk away with much more. I would advise the dealer to pay up
