I had the engine light come on my car first day at work the car starting over flowing they said it was a sensor picked it up again and the light came back on the owner is a Scrooge he bad mouthed my mother over the phone so six months later my car engine goes out because of a sensor they did not replace or provide documents of anything long story short save your time and money and don't get stuck with a lemon.
Sold me a lemon, beware.My story spans 6 months of nothing but break downs, tow trucks, rental cars, and phone calls between Roy and Juan at Forza Motors. Forza was responsible for fixing a known problem on my 2009 Audi A3 and paid for 7 trips to the auto shop. Seriously, this car broke down 7 individual times about once every 2 weeks, leaving me stranded needing a tow truck. Each time I was promised it would be taken to an Audi specialist and that the problem was found and repaired. To this day it has yet to run reliably. Forza has refused to offer me a full refund on the purchase price despite this insanity and that the car is clearly a lemon. During the week long repairs I would go car-less, Forza was nice enough to loan me a beat up 2001 or so Acura RSX with a broken head lamp. I eventually bit the bullet and took the car into a mechanic on my own only to hear the chief mechanic tell me that whoever worked on the car prior had really hacked things apart. Stripped holes in the engine, cut bolts to fit, broken clips holding wiring and hoses. A lot if jerry-rigging…. so much for “Audi specialists” repairing the car. I was lied to. It was clear Forza was trying the fix my car as cheaply as possible which I believe has led to more problems which I am facing now. Toward the end of my ordeal they have become unresponsive… In total Forza lacks the integrity to admit fault and accept a return. Until Forza offers me a full refund it is clear they are the shady used car dealership all car buyers fear. I hope to hear from Forza so I can update this post with a positive ending.
Don't buy from this dealer. I bought a 2004 mini Cooper s. Everything seemed to be working fine and four months later the car is completely undriveable. The Supercharger, radiator, thermostat, and water pump all need to be replaced. In the beginning there was an oil leak and I took it back since they had to pay half to fix it and upon picking it up after it was "fixed" it seemed to be running fine. Little did I know that it was still leaking. I suggest all buyers to stay away from this dealership unless you want to be ripped off in the worst way possible. I've been carless for two months now with no sign of hope to fix ths car let alone pay off the lease. DO NOT BUY.
Very poor businessman, talks a good game, but no truth to any of his stories. Promises a whole lot, when time come to honoring his word there is always some excuse. Keeps your car for to make it seem like it being worked on. Then gives it back the same way, and blames the mechanic. Charges u for thing's that have to be fix when he's selling the car to you, I do no my pice of crap car has more class, than the owner ROBERT GARCIA will ever have. Con, fraudulent, gypsy
My mistake for shopping here. I was sold a car that is worth $4,986 for $9,899 and financed total is $15,000. the car is not "Salvage" but through out time i started to notice all the different parts that were fixed and added to the car. Paint started chipping from the out side of the car and as far as the leather seats they started to fade away and the wear and tear started to show. The car became uneven, so now the trunk the doors and the hood along with the body are uneven. Service was OK, i was also promised a second key fob and when i called to ask for the key fob i was told they were sorry to miss informed me but if i want a second key, i would have to buy one my self. please use your computer to check the best prices around your town so you don't make the same mistakes as i did. As for Schettino Motors I DON'T RECOMMEND nor will i ever come back to this place. I will also post pictures to show proof of what i am saying.
If I were you, I'd stay away from this Midget "Augie" AND his Midget son "Augie jr" ?. They are pure white trash and have the short man complex, the temp they both have will get them in serious trouble one day, either by getting beatin, death or land themselves in jail. Stay far away from this company.
They sold me a car and with in 2 weeks the engine light went on, I took it back and they said they fixed it but will not produce any receipts or documentation. I called the finance company and to contact the dealer and they are ignoring them also!!! they refuse to give me any paper work or answer any questions my Car is still having issues and they will not help and it has a warranty. I filed a complaint with the DMV and will be taking further action. DO NOT BUY A CAR FROM THEM THEY WILL TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOU AND NOT HELP YOU WITH ANY ISSUES YOU ARE HAVING COMPLETELY UNPROFESSIONAL. The finance company is assisting me in creating a case agains VALE AUTO SALES in El Monte
Our experience with Forza Motors Inc. in El Monte, Ca. was easy and honest. We had to have the "luxury suv" shipped to our home and "Z" our salesperson was always available to us and to the vehicle transport unit. A reliable and honest car dealership. Go take a look !!
This place is terrible. My experience is as follows: I see the car online in good shape and decide to check it out in person. I get there and see a shady looking lot with dusty, damaged cars everywhere arranged haphazardly. Since its a tiny lot, it doesn't take long for me to find it. Walking past cardboard on the ground, and it definitely does not look like the picture. The interior was dusty and much more torn up than it looked and there were way more dings, dents, and bumper damages than acceptable even for an old used car. At this point I was wondering whether or not this was a good idea.After a few minutes of looking at the car I was interested in, the owner tells me I'm not allowed to look at the interior or engine bay. Okay, maybe he's had some sketchy people in the past. He said he'd get back to me in a few minutes as he finishes a transaction with another customer. This turned into an hour and I'm not sure why I waited.Then they ask if I have the cash to buy the car. Yea, if the price is right but I need to test drive it. She starts up the car and says her husband is a mechanic and makes sure the cars are good, which is a surprise to me because the belts were squeaky, the idle was rough, and the car knocked consistently. They were adamant not to let me test drive the car unless I was going to buy it. I said again, if the price is right. They then proceeded to tack on non-existent fees. The car was listed for $4,000 and they ended up telling me to pay $5,800. "It has low miles, it has low miles!," he kept saying. I left with the person who drove me and bought her food as an apology for wasting everyone's time.To sum up my experience, Their customer service is non-existent, their cars are sketchy, and they will try to rip you off to the best of their ability. Luckily, that ability is not very honed.And if anyone cares, I got a much newer model of the same car for $2500 less including all DMV and tax fees than their in-person asking price. Avoid this place. I'll never get my hour back and I don't want anyone to lose their hour either.
