I bought a car from Jerry Gradl motors that has had issues since day one. They started out being apologetic and seemingly sincere about resolving the issues, had me drop the car off to them and then proceeded to rush me in and out claiming they fixed the problem while making sure they never gave me any paper work detailing the supposed work they did. Within a week, the same problem occured. They played dumb and offered to fix it again. This sequence of events continued until they finally lied their way through the 60 day lemon law period. Along the way, they actually not only never fixed anything that was wrong, but damaged the car even further by having their ""mechanic"" (who is nothing more than a backyard butcher) working on the car with no fender cover and he scratched both sides of the car horribly with his belt buckle, and replaced steel lines with scraps of airline hose and garden variety hose clamps instead of buying the correct lines. He also ""test drove"" the car and hit an animal (we found indisputable evidence along with the unmistakable smell of rotting animal carcass) which caused the cars alignment to go out of wack, then denied all of it. They also tightened and siliconed leaking gaskets rather than replace them. This place reinforces the term ""Jerry Rig"". They have also made appts. and ""forgot"" about them, after me taking off work to meet their time needs. This dealership is THE quintessential scummy rip-off artist and definitely should be avoided at all costs.
