Lakeshore's Latest Pitch

Posted By on Wed, Jan 31, 2007 at 1:55 PM

Great news arrived in the mail today from Lakeshore Buick Pontiac! You may remember this Shaker Heights dealership as the proud home of the $5 car ("The $5 Miracle," January 10). It's also the newest satellite of a company facing dozens of consumer complaints alleging that it misleads customers and sells damaged cars. This week, Lakeshore is touting its best offer yet. According to the flier we received, I'm PRE-QUALIFIED* for a car loan of up to $27,000! (That is, as long as my credit clears.) And, it gets better. If I take advantage of this special deal, I'll receive a "pre-paid TARGET Gift Card worth up to $5,000."** Granted, the fine print informs me that my odds of actually winning a $5,000 card are 1 in 32,500. But, at least I'm "GUARANTEED" to get some kind of Target card worth... um...something. Hurry now, seven days only. A winner has been notified by mail, and IT COULD BE YOU! — Lisa Rab
