40 CAR BUYERS LOOK DESPERATELY FOR MISSING CAR DEALER

An angry crowd of around 30 customers gathered outside a car dealership in MacPherson Road yesterday afternoon to demand their money back.

They believe they had been conned of their downpayments for their new cars – between $20,000 and $40,000 each – by the director of Volks Auto, a parallel importer.

Said Mr Kenny Lim, 36, who paid a $37,000 deposit for a Honda Vezel S meant as a gift for his father: “I almost wanted to smash the glass down to get in.” At $108,000, including a certificate of entitlement for the car, it was a bargain.

The same car usually went for $130,000 at other parallel importers. Said another angry buyer: “Jover Chew is nothing compared to this.”
