I'm new to Autoworld forum. I signed up because I want to find a way to inform every likely second hand car buyers to be wary of a VERY DISHONEST CAR DEALER from Johor Bahru.
They are operating under the company name YAP AUTO TRADING (JM0229151-P) / AUTOMOTIVE YAP SDN. BHD. (546306-U)
Address: Lot 1876, Jalan Masai Lama, 81100 J.B. / Lot 1232, Jalan Tun Fatimah, Lebuhraya Pasir Gudang.
Before you confirm buying with them, they will tell you all sorts of problems with other sellers when you tell them you have been to other sellers and seeing the same version of cars. Then they will say the others adjust the mileage or something. But then they play psychology with you. They will say their price is much higher because their car is guarantee very good. And they will pujuk you to go buy from the other dealers because they really cannot do for you the price which you asking for.
But then they will get your phone number and keep update you how good their cars, asking you to put deposit, etc. They really very commited and VERY GOOD SERVICE!! (This is before you buy from them).
After you bought your car from them, NIGHTMARES begin!!! All the things they promised you they will find all sorts of excuse to push you aside... To narrate the whole story here is really very lengthy and I am very disappointed with them. This is NOT JUST A SALESMAN PROBLEM!! THEIR BOSS WAS THERE TO AID THEM INTO CONNING YOU TO BUY FROM THEM!!!
To make the long story short, I bought a 2nd hand Altis 1.8G 2008 from them for RM71k. They guaranteed the car is metallic white, they say it looks dull because not yet polished.. I trusted them. I ask them to do assignment for me to transfer the registration number to the one i like. They asked me to buy the number from JPJ first, then they will do for me for a fee of RM500 which I only need to pay them RM250. RM250 a discount from them!! After I hear all these goodies, i signed the documents, pay my deposit everything. After i got my car for 2 weeks, I call and message the salesman to ask when can he do the assignment for me, he never reply my messages nor answer my calls. Another 2 weeks later, he called me up saying that the person doing the assignment resigned. Now they cannot do for me and they will give me RM250 which they have "PROMISED" to discount me!! Furthermore, the paint turns out to be a lousy newly painted SOLID WHITE which flakes dropped off revealing its original gold color paint!!!
I was really really disappointed with this car dealer and I hope to send a message to my fellows brothers and sisters here to becareful if you are buying your car from them.
