eBay Hyundai Genesis Coupe Controversey: Round 2

Posted in Bizarre, Hyundai by Jon | January 26th, 2010 | 2 Responses |

I’m sure you have heard about the guy would placed  a  winning bid of $16,125 on eBay for a Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T. Well the problem that insued was that the seller(Glenn Hyundai of Lexington) believed that the car was worth atleast $19,700 and refused to acknowledge the winning bid. They stay committed on the fact that they placed a reserve on the car, even though they didn’t, and they were not willing to negotiate. We all thought that the story would probably end up with the bidder getting hosed on this deal and not getting what he deserved but something just recently came up. Obviously the internet got word of this story and not many things excite people as much as a little  controversey can.  It’s not wonder that Glenn Hyundai started to recieve calls, emails, faxes and other things commenting on their dishonest actions. The attacks on the car dealership became some great that they contacted the bidder and told him that if he stopped people from harrassing them they would indeed give him a Genesis Coupe for $16,125…..allegedly. Allegedly because this deal was all made in a verbal agreement between the bidder and Glenn Hyundai and the bidder did not disclose much information about the deal. But here is the not so suprising news. Once the bidder called of the attacks, he still got no car. He is now claiming that Glenn Hyundai broke their “verbal agreement” and vehemently believes that they owe him a one. The bidder has now obatined a lawyer and contacted Hyundai but gotten no response. We will be sure to keep you updated on any new news of this conflict.

    When it comes to media exposure, is there really such a thing as bad press? Demi Moore and Halle Berry, in a three-way with Barack Obama on their showroom floor, couldn’t have gotten Glenn Hyundai more exposure.

    ..How come ebay hasn’t stepped up to the plate and layed down some law here….I mean really, the car was listed one way or another, and ebay will have the record of exactly how.
    This kind of makes me reconsider ebaying in the future….
    …if the are willing to wash their hands with a sticky situation, whats to stop future shady business practice.
