Quite the rinky-dink, deceitful little business. After reading a satisfactory Carfax report, Humberto sold me a nice-looking 2006 Nissan Altima. It had been regularly maintained, so how could there possibly be anything wrong with it? Well, a little over two weeks after I purchased it, the AC started blasting out either lukewarm or flat-out hot air when on the coldest setting. Shortly after, the "Service Engine Soon" light came on. Not sure what kind of place sells a car without giving it a proper tune-up first, but I took it to AutoZone for a diagnostic test, and got a P0420. This is probably the most vague diagnosis a vehicle can get, but it's probably the catalytic converter. Let's just hope this is only thing wrong, shall we? And, wait for it, wait for it... As it turns out, it needs a new exhaust manifold, front struts, and radiator hoses as well as a timing belt - all adding up to about $2,200 in repairs. Essentially, the $400 I saved when they knocked it off the price will have to go a mechanic (plus an additional $1,800) to fix the issues. Good lookin' out, guys! "As-Is" vehicle sales are a gamble the buyer usually doesn't win. However, the fact that the issues were never disclosed at the time of purchase nor did I receive a copy of the engine report mandated BY LAW after 75,000 miles probably means I have a damn good case against them. Avoid the aggravation and spend the extra money somewhere else. At least there you'll know what you're getting.

March 1, 2010 I've been staying at the family owned Hitchin' Post RV Park since November, 2009 in my 5th wheel toy hauler. The staff and guests are very nice. You can join in or be by yourself. A favorite meeting place is the fabulous Steakhouse and Saloon right on the property within walking distance so no trouble having fun yet being safe with no driving! The food is expertly prepared, large portions priced reasonably. I've enjoyed their Saturday night Italian specials, mouth watering steaks and prime ribs, tasty salads and slaws along with the best real chicken strips lightly coated buttermilk battered 'tenders' I've ever had in my life! The grounds are well kept, the pool is huge and heated, very nice! The facilities are excellent as they are done in marble and red wood, clean, working and well kept! It is safe as we are behind a gated entrance. Easy to get to anywhere in the city offering a view of the strip so my Grandsons and I could watch the New Year's Eve fireworks right from the top bunk in our RV! It's a fairly quick hop to lots of places in CA as well! I was going to go to southern Florida after Daytona Bike Week but the monthly rates are two to three times the rate here at the Hitchin' Post so I'm staying here for the winter. I love it and I'll be back next year!
John Edelberg is one of THE best and MOST honest people I have ever met and had the pleasure of dealing with. His answers were spot on and he had incredible knowledge of the vehicles we discussed. John has been in the business for a long time and is great at what he does. I have purchased several cars in the last few years and ONLY do business with John. It's unfortunate that people like you are allowed to say such off-the-cuff remarks without any real knowledge of who he is and what he is all about. It would seem to me that you may have some deeper issues that you aren't speaking about and issues that should probably be addressed with a shrink. You should be banned from making comments about people you really don't know. The fact that you commented about a man who doesn't even sell cars but manages a department in the facility is ridiculous. Also...just for anyone who cares to read this...the review of RELIABLE AUTO SALES was written by Steven Ptak...the owner. So that's a review that is completely biased! Such a shame...the real creep is you and you are the one carrying bad karma on your shoulders. Hope you sleep well!
I went to look at a 2013 Audi, in Las Vegas Nevada, which had recently arrived. Drove and liked it however by the time I received an insurance quote, and had done some other shopping the car had been sold and no others were available in the vicinity. I discussed with my Salesperson, Robert, what he wanted to do, since I couldn't wait for months to order one and preferred not to travel out of town where others were available. They found a more upgraded one out of state and negotiated to have it shipped here, and at no charge to me. They were not under any obligation to do this. They also worked out a very competitive price which turned out to be less than I would have otherwise paid out of the area where I had priced several. I left a deposit and signed to have the vehicle transferred. A few days later the car arrived in good order, no miles,nor damages, clean, fueled, tested fine, ready to go. I completed the paper work, was not pressured to take additional items though I took some which I had previously reviewed. Robert went over the various systems with me and gave me a lift back from the airport. A+ all around so far!
WOW! how to describe BEST car I’ve ever purchased & from a dealership with BEST VIP treatment ever experienced. I did internet search “2017 convertibles” and saw a car I’d never seen before … 2017 Fiat Spider 124. SPECS: I wanted something fast, compact and with latest gadgets (backup camera, 7” screen, remote everything). I’d already driven a $55,000 German sports car so I went to test drive the Fiat. AMAZING! 0-60 in 6 sec, zero noise or wind blowing at highway speeds with top down. Fiat even BEATS German convertible BECAUSE it has pushbutton start & top up or down in 5 seconds. All this at HALF the German cost. Towbin Fiat made my choice even better. UNBEATABLE PRICE (and I shopped ALL over the USA), Vanessa Rau treated me like I was royalty. She showed me many features as we walked around my new car, even connected my smartphone to 7” touch screen. If you are looking for ANY convertible in Vegas & don’t at least test drive the Fiat 124 at Towbin, YOU ARE CRAY CRAY CRAZY!!!
The good reviews must have been posted by employees or by people who know literally nothing about cars. These people invent problems and they overcharge. Here are a few examples I have experienced in person. For corroded terminals, they want to replace the battery. When the coolant level is low, they want to replace the thermostat. When the mechanic breaks something, they want to claim it was broken. They want you to pay at least $400 or more, no matter what. Still, the shop is not one star, because they actually fix the problem too, assuming you pay a lot more than necessary. As long as you know this and you know EXACTLY what you want, plus do not mind paying $135/hr, you can go there, because they have the instrumentation to diagnose and the tools to repair VWs. They are, for the above-mentioned reasons, in fact, better than the average mechanic in Vegas, which does not mean they are good. The parts store is good and sometimes you can get steep discounts.
Everybody that keeps talking bad about car zone is most likely one of those that didnt get what they wanted either cuz they couldn't afford it or cuz they weren't qualified enough so they get pissed off and blame the business or the workers I think u people are full of s*** I have bought 3 cars from them and yea they are not perfect but that's why it's a used car lot I never had a problem with any of the cars, I think it's a business like any other they have good and bad, they have different cars every two days so they must be doing somthing right and that one person that said they take ur car before u pay it off and they make up stories that guy or girl are so full of it if that were really true why not report it or take it to court. They took ur car cuz u didn't pay it doesn't matter if it's the last payment u have to pay or it's a repo pay ur **it on time and u won't have any problem
After months of considering getting a new car, I traded in my old Chrysler 300 and leased a brand new 2017 Volvo XC60 T6. I absolutely love the car! I am very happy with my decision. I would like to Thank Marcus Rice/Sales Associate, for making me feel welcome and addressing all of my concerns in a timely manner. Marcus made the car buying process seamless. I would also like to give a big Thank you to Lane McEnaney / General Manager, for being flexible and making adjustments in order for me to drive off with the car I wanted! I would highly recommend Volvo Las Vegas on Sahara to anyone who is car shopping. The Customer Service, Staff, Environment and Management are excellent, professional, and friendly. They also had a great selection available to choose from. Thank you for setting such a high standard in Customer Service and car shopping experience. 5/5 star experience!

Having been turned off by dealerships in the past that have treated me like dirt because of a low credit score, I was not looking forward to car shopping this time around. I was pleasantly surprised to find that Universal Auto is a complete (and appreciated) departure from your average car dealership. They treated me like a human being despite my low credit score and worked with me to finance a car for me that I LOVE! The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and patient which are all traits that I had previously thought did not exist in employees from other dealerships. I was never pressured into signing paperwork that day (although I did), which other dealerships seem to start wanting you to do the second you step foot on the lot. I am confident that I made the right decision on my car purchase and am proud to say that Universal Auto will have a lifelong customer.
