I always take time to investigate a business before making a big purchase. I think I read 20 sum reviews on Southside Motors and could only find 2 bad reviews. I decided that after reading how this place helps so many people that this is the place I want to buy from. I stopped on a Sunday afternoon because I work all week and on Saturdays. I figured I would see what kind of cars they had and go in over my Christmas vacation. When I pulled into the lot there was someone coming out the door and he came over and said hello to me and ask if I had any questions. I told him I didn't want to bother him on Christmas Eve. It ended up being one of the owners and when he saw that me car had a bad inspection sticker he said that he didn't want me to get a ticket and he would help get a new car even though they were closed. This guy dropped what he was doing and spent a hour with me until I found the car I wanted to get. Ohhhh!!!! I did ask him about the bad review and he told me that the person was using there car as a taxi service and 3 different times did not have car insurance. After he told me about them using it for a taxi service I realized it was my EX brother in law because he got a car from this place also. I can tell you that Southside Motors worked with him on several occasions to get insurance and he never did. I know for a fact that he used the warranty 2 times and had no problems. One time after he had the car for 8 months the transmission went bad and the warranty paid for it and the next time after he put 14,000 miles on it the power sterring pump went bad and the warranty company paid for that to. Trust I know him and I'm glad he is my EX brother in law. Don't believe the scum ball this place is great and they really do want to help you. Not like most car places.

I am what would be considered a very seasoned buyer. I am late in age and have been buying cars all my life. I usually prefer to buy private party, however in this case I needed car yesterday! I was left with only one option, a dealer. I looked for about 2 weeks at probably 7 cars I was very interested in. After my preliminary rounds I had it down too two dealers, one was Frenchy's Auto where I met Devin. The other I would like to remain nameless. Devin seemed to be an honest knowledgeable young man. He was very cordial with me even though I informed him I would not be buying that day. Long story short the other dealership had their lot attendant talking to be and he knew next too nothing about the vehilce I intended to purchase. I can honesty say that made me feel really uncomfortable. I decided Devin had earned my business. I went over that Sentra from top to bottom and the only complaint I had was the car was going to need a new inspection in only 4 months. Frenchy's agreed to give me a new Pa inspection. The skeptic I am, I deiced to have my mechanic go over the car after purchase. To my surprise not only was the inspection done properly, the car had new front end parts!( 2 tie rod ends, new CV axle and a new ball joint) I wanted to share my story with any person who is looking for a good used car. I know how hard the process can be. I had a great experience with them and I will send my family and friends! Thank you guys!!!
I just got my second vehicle here last week. I bought my first one about 21/2 years ago and was so pleased with the way they helped me with the rent to own finance deal they have I decided to go back to them. I got a 06 Chevy Cobalt the first time and really didn't have any problems with it. The rent to own finance is only a 21/2 year term and after you make the payments you own it. I did have to pay around $200.00 to transfer the car into my name but heck I paid that with no problem. I gave this car to my girlfriend and went back in and told them I wanted to get a SUV this time. I ended up getting a 2007 Chevy Trailblazer. Now I know I'm paying more then if I could do reguar finance but I tried to get a car financed from 4 different places and they all told me they couldn't help me. I think I ended up paying about $1500.00 more but when you consider the fact that you get a 2 year warranty with it and the payment includes tax and everything. I'm pretty sure this is the only place in the Pittsburgh area that does the rent to own finance with no credit checks. This place has nice vehicles and decent miles on them and nothing over 100,000 miles on them. Most of the ones I looked at were around 50,000 to 70,000 miles on them. I would say if your having trouble getting a nice car or suv because of credit problems you should give this place a try.
