    I’m not surprised. I remember a classmate who bought a lemon from that same dealership. When they wouldn’t help her at all, she had no other alternative than to stand outside and hand out lemons to people who passed by.

    Not surprised at all…. that’s all I got to say on this one.

    Not shocked in the least. My experiences with that dealership have led me to not do business with them anymore.

    Maybe I shouldn’t go here, but how did that disabled person obtain all that cash and get it around, where did it come from ?

    I’m sure the Gee group paid a pretty penny for the Huling name thinking they had a good thing. Now they are going to see how fast they can get rid of the name. Sounds like the Gee group bought a Lemon.

    Worked at a place in WS that saw these folks as customers, and also got to hear the stories about lemons and poor service. Not surpised at all.

    To Jiggers, Posting @ 7:57pm,

    The possibilities of how the victim came into his cash reserves are endless. For example, I know of a West Seattle man who has been clinically diagnosed with schizophrenia who two years ago was cleaned out of upwards of $70k by some meth amphetamine addicts who told the mentally ill man that he was their financial backer and that they were his business partners. They fed the ill man this line over and over and all the while had him withdrawing his maximum allowable daily withdrawal from an ATM. Ka-ching-ka-ching$$$$$.

    He is currently sitting on about 3/4 of a million dollars worth of real estate that some sleaze bag will wind up scamming him out of.

    The man has a an appointed guardian however the problems continue……it is really sad and very hard to solve.

    I feel terrible for the new owners, they obviouly were taken by surprise and I am sure Mr. Huling had much more knowledge than he is claiming. He is just trying to do damage control, when he should have done a much better job screening his employees. The poor Gee family should not be saddled with Mr. Hulings stupidity and I am sure they will make this a great store for the West Seattle residents. Mr. Huling you should be ashamed of yourself.

Sorry, comment time is over.
