Ebay Controversy: Hyundai Genesis Coupe

Posted in eBay Motors, Hyundai by Jon | January 20th, 2010 | 1 Response |

One individual on the GenCouple forum seems to be a little upset over an bid on a Hyundai Genesis Coupe that he believes he won from a dealership in Kentucky on eBay Motors. It appears that the dealership is not planning on honoring the bid and several accusations have surfaced from both parties but it appears there is one thing that both sides can agree on. What they can agree on is that there was a 2010 Hyundai Genesis 2.0 T was listed on eBay Motors in December of last year, and the winning bid was $16,125. That is all  can be agreed upon. The individual buyer believes he won the bid at $16,125, almost $6,ooo below the sticker price, and there is the proof on eBay’s item listing. Eric Manley, the internet manager for the Kentucky car dealership believes that he put the car up for sale with a “Buy It Now” price at $19,700, and had no intention at selling it at a lower price. And because no one placed a bid higher than $19,700 the car was removed from eBay. The disgruntled buyer is attempting to get his voice heard buy speaking his mind through media outlets, the Kentucky governement, and eBay itself. It may be a few days before eBay can determine who is in the right and who is in the wrong and the legal implications that may follow. According to the dealership they have already sold the car and the prospective buyers threats are futile. It’s going to be interesting to see how this one shakes out.

  1. ...come to think of it says:

    …the answer here is simple….eBay will have the record on what exactly was listed as a selling price and ect…. and the shady dealership, will have to honor that.

    It sounds like the less than intelligent sales representative might ave listed the car incorrectly on eBay…..but that’s not the consumers fault.

    The truth will be out as soon as eBay reveals their records.
