Back on May 7th, 40-year-old Danny Sawyer bought a blue Chevy Traverse from a dealership called Priority Chevrolet in Chesapeake, Virginia. He signed a contract to buy it for $34,000. The next day he went back to swap it for the same model in black.
--Apparently, the dealership's sales manager let him make the switch and never mentioned the black Traverse costs $5,600 more than the blue Traverse. So Danny drove off with his new black SUV for the same price.
--The dealership quickly figured out they'd just accidentally given Danny a MASSIVE discount. So they called him and told him he'd need to sign a NEW CONTRACT to pay around $39,000 for the SUV, instead of $34,000. And Danny told them NO CHANCE.
--So, on June 15th, the dealership CALLED THE COPS to report Danny for THEFT. And the cops picked him up and held him in JAIL for four hours until they could sort out what was happening. The charge was dropped for a lack of evidence.
--The dealership ended up apologizing to Danny . . . but he said it was too late. He's now filed two lawsuits against the dealership for malicious prosecution, slander, defamation, and abuse of process. He's seeking $2.2 MILLION.
I'm stunned that the dealership had the guy arrested! They clearly made a mistake and needed to own up to it. But the question is, should Danny have done something more? He DID get more truck than he asked for without paying for it...
What do you think and what would you have done???
