Wouldn't but from this place. Daughter is buying from them. Engine light was on, when my daughter asked why, so was told it wasn't nothing to worry about. Now a 4 cylinder cat should get good milage, this thing only gets 9 miles per gallon. It also shifts itself out of drive down to first gear and the anti skid kicks in. They will not fix it. She is paying over $400.00 a month for this thing that cost $10.00 a day to get her to and from work.
August 26, 2017Gerald HorneA & A Automotive1620 State St.Florence, AL 35630 This man sold me a 2009 Pontiac G6 GXP on July 17, 2017 that he bought at an auction that had been wrecked for $6,000.He told me he would “fix everything that needed fixing on the car to make it drivable and acceptable before I bought it,” even saying he would “provide an oil change.”On July 17, 2017, he delivered car to my home. My grandson checked oil and it was quite low, dirty, and dark.Contacted Mr. Horne and told him he needed to perform the oil change he had promised.He said he would perform oil change. He picked up car that day On July 20, 2017, he delivered car to Florence, AL YMCA where my grandson was playing basketball. WE DID NOT CHECK THE OIL AT THIS TIME, AS HORNE HAD GIVEN HIS WORD THE OIL WAS CHANGED AT THIS TIME.Around 5:00 p.m., grandson drove car to the Florence Mall. He left mall at approximately 9:00 p.m. and went to North Florence McDonald’s for a Coke. When he turned onto North Wood Avenue, he inadvertently turned left, going North, instead of turning right, going South, toward the area we live in. He realized this right away and began to look for a place to turn around.Just as he got in front of Florence Baptist Church, driving the speed limit, car began to violently shake; smoke began boiling out from under front and sides of hood, such that even with windows rolled up due to air conditioner being on, grandson’s glasses fogged up. The more he pressed accelerator, slower car went. It went down to 20 MPH and then he WAS FORCED TO TURN IT into an arc such that front tires were resting on curb in oncoming traffic lane in front of Florence Baptist Church. This is when the car quit completely. He got out of car and then went back for keys and tried to crank it. It would not crank. HE NEARLY GOT KILLED BY ONCOMING TRAFFIC AT THIS POINT!!!! He got out and called Florence police; then me.I phoned Mr. Horne; told him what had happened. He said he would send Horne Towing truck. We did not ever see a Horne Towing truck at site of incident.THE POLICE, GRANDSON, & I ALL SAW SOME KIND OF FLUID THAT HAD LEAKED ONTO ROAD FROM WHERE CAR BEGAN ACTING UP ALL WAY IN ARC TO WHERE CAR RESTED WITH TWO FRONT TIRES AGAINST CURB IN ONCOMING TRAFFIC LANE.Horne LATER STATED, FLUID DID NOT COME FROM THIS CAR.”I SAID, YES, IT DID, WE ALL WITNESSED IT; POLICE COMMENTED ON IT & TOWING WORKER SAW ITCOULD EASILY BEEN MOTOR OIL & IF SO, CAUSED ENGINE TO BLOW.Police had called ________ Towing. Towing service that was “on call that night” came to scene of incident. Mr. Horne got car next day & took to Horne Wrecker. I CONTEND HE KNOWINGLY SOLD ME A CAR WITH BAD ENGINE.Horne called me 7/21, 2017, saying he had two “trained technicians” look at car. They told him “engine had been raced” or “the engine was revved.” Said “no way to computer test engine to see what happened.” Horne said “IT IS OBVIOUS CAR HAS BEEN MISTREATED.”I told him my grandson had done no such thing.Horne said engine was “blown” & needed to be replaced. I paid $6,000 for car. Paid $1,645 for used engine. Paid $515 for mechanic to put engine in. Paid $90 for new key fob (one that came with car did not work. Paid $90 to put tire sensor in left front tire.Then, Express Oil diagnosed oil pan crack; D & D Engines charged $60 for an oil pan. Paid mechanic $575 to put oil pan in. Total amount over & above $6,000 Horne charged for car that was supposed to have “everything fixed in it at time of sale” is $2,965!! TOTAL OF $8,965.I WANT MR. HORNE TO PAY ME $8,965.THIS IS WHAT MR. HORNE HAS CAUSED ME TO SPEND ON CAR. NO ONE CAN DRIVE CAR, AS WHAT WOULD BE NEXT MAJOR REPAIR BE? Horne was supposed to be a "Christian" friend.________________________________________Beth Davis410 N. Walnut St.Florence, AL 35630
