I am writing this review about Four Corners Auto in order to save others from getting burned from this business like we were. We found a car there, and the price was right. They told us their mechanic had checked it and it was in good shape. We took it for a test drive and all seemed fine, but we didn’t take it to another mechanic, which was a big mistake. They told us that their mechanic had checked it out and it was fine.
After purchasing the car, it started to have a funny smell. We did an oil change, but later took it to another mechanic. They told us that the engine was completely shot. It would cost more to fix it than the car was worth. After reviewing the service record file more carefully, we did find a crumbled repair record that mentioned the exact problem our mechanic had found. We feel that the Four Corners Auto people knew about this problem, but we hoped they would be reasonable if we went and talked to them. Perhaps we could get a refund or some money back.
Unfortunately, they did not care. A good mechanic would have seen those major problems. They claimed that they had said their mechanic only did a “safety check.” Four of us were there and heard what they had said originally, which was that the mechanic said it was “fine.” There is no way we would have not had the engine checked independently if they had told us it was just a “safety check.” We have always had vehicles checked, but didn’t do it this time. Always get an independent check on any car.
When given the chance to make it right, they did nothing. Apparently, others have had similar experiences with them and have also lost a lot of money. Apparently most of these cars come from trade-ins from Resseler, which are sent to a used car lot in Belgrade. Whatever doesn’t sell there, gets dumped at Four Corners Auto. As we did more research, we found that they do have a bad reputation. Please think carefully before doing business with FOUR CORNERS AUTO. Buyer beware!
