(A response to Neverlost and Jake F both) I am the owner of Alliance Motors and this low class crook (with this negative lying review) test drove a car off my lot and when he returned he said that the car overheated on him and there was an SRS light on, I said that we would get that fixed, but instead he asked me what my low dollar on the car AS-IS (with the overheating problem still there and the SRS light) so I gave him a great deal (-$1,500 UNDER book) because I knew he was going to have to spend some money to fix it. One week later he came back and said that I needed to fix the car because I sold him a car that was overheating and he could not drive it. He said "This condition breaches the implied warranty of merchantibility. The car is undrivable without repairs." I said yes it is but that is the way you wanted me to sell it to you. He threated to turn me into the better business bureau if I did not comply. I did not comply to his blackmail attempts so he turned me in. PLEASE go to the bettter business bureau site (BBB.com) and all paperwork from his side and my side is on their website.. Aftter they heard both of our sides they 100% dismissed the case and absolved me from having a bad business practice. I will never sell this guy or his family another car again. Horrible experience. I wish they had a better business bureau that warned businesses about bad customers. Steve-owner ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ A reply to Jake F. – Jake F. purchased the Lexus IS300 from us and it stop running on the way home. So I paid to have it towed back to my shop, spent over $600 on new parts on it to fix it (Brand new fuel pump, new spark plugs, ECU, MAF sensor). The custom air intake that was on his Lexus was called a “Swift racing technologies – Cold Air Intake” and after doing research on the internet the company that makes the air intakes – we found TONS of complaints on their intakes by angry customers. The custom air intake ended up frying the ECU to the car and causing other problems. We bought another ECU and removed the “Swift Racing technologies – cold air intake” from his car and installed another factory intake. Before Jake picked up his car, the Lexus has had 3 different test drivers and 9+ hours worth of running time – with ZERO problems. We hooked up our $4,000 computer system and the car was running in closed loop - it was running perfect. When he picked up the car, we explained to him the problems his car was having was caused by the poorly-engineered air intake and faulty MAF sensor that came on it. We warned him NOT to reinstall any of the items back on the car for a short term Horsepower upgrade. The next day he text me and said it would not start so I sent a mechanic down to Branson to fix it for free again. When my mechanic came up to the car he saw Jake and his friends re-installing the air intake. So he just turned around, got in his car and headed back home. I can’t control the actions of people after they leave my car lot. CONCERED CUSTOMERS PLEASE COME BY MY LOT AND I HAVE PRINTED OFF THE ENTIRE CONVERSATION BETWEEN JAKE AND MYSELF. THIS INCLUDES THE TEXT MESSGE WHERE I OFFERED TO GET HIM A NEW INSPECTION SHEET OR STICKER AND I WOULD PAY FOR IT. I ALSO HAVE ALL THE RECEIPTS SHOWING ALL THE NEW PARTS I INSTALLED ON HIS CAR.
Steve Marler, the owner of Alliance Motors in Springfield is the most upright and honest car salesman in this area. I bought an 05 Honda Civic from him, the car was, as you would expect a used car. Steve told me of a warranty they offered to help cover repairs should they arise after sales finalization. I, like the stubborn fella that I am, opted not to buy the warranty. I did however have his mechanics do some work to the vehicle after purchase, and they did exactly as we agreed upon. The car ran great, they even went above and beyond to do a few other things as a courtesy. Well about a month ago, the car started losing oil really bad. I called my regular shop (just because they are in/out status) and my friends wife owns them; but to the point, the leak was in the general area of the work his guys had done just a few months prior to this leak... So I called Steve, and explained what was going on. He swiftly researched it, and, at no fault of his guys, determined as had my mechanics that it was in fact just an oil leak. As a COURTESY he sent me a company check for 75.00 to help with my current repairs. That says a lot for a business owner to stretch out like that and stand 100% by the product he sells. Steve, I will be doing business with you again soon, baby on the way, we are still looking for a Jeep. Its because of his honesty and integrity, the sheer fact that he can look you in the eye, and you get that sense of true honesty that I refer everyone I know to him, and personally will buy from him again. Oh, and he gets the best rates in town. Anyone has any questions, call or text me... I cannot say enough good about this man, my number 417-986-8488
I was recommended here from a few friends that said they had great experiences. I'll admit I was hesitant at first and doubted them a little. Well, after my experience, I cannot brag on this dealership enough. I went in multiple times over the course of a year or so before finally purchasing my car. Travis was my salesman and let me tell you, I couldn't ask for a more polite and patient person to work with. I told him my price point, the things I was looking for, and the style I had in mind. He met with me multiple times through out the year, and ultimately found me the exact car I was looking for and met my budget! Everyone that helped me through the process was very friendly and accommodating. I've had my car for a little over a year now and every time I take it in for service I'm greeted with a smile. The service department has also gone above and beyond to make sure I have the best experience when I'm there. I usually work with Mark when I take it in and he always does the job in a timely manor and leaves my car looking better than when I left it with him. I highly recommend them to all my friends and family. They've really impressed me.
