Crooks. Owner called me while drunk and repeatedly called me a mother f**ker. His goon Derek is no better. He called me a scumbag and said he'd like to see me die living under a bridge.
Violated protocol and started preemptively repossessing vehicles.
We had a 5th wheel we were living in that was part of collateral pool. They came and took that and our truck while my 22 month old grandson was staying with us. Left us standing at an RV park homeless, with no vehicle with our toddler grandson.
I used to go to bat for these guys. Boy was I wrong. They basically raped me then stabbed me in the back.
And Beware - they put a tracking device in your car without telling you. It is only legal to put these in with full disclosure to the customer.
STAY FAR AWAY! If you don't, you will regret it.
Can't WARN people enough to not go here. It took over 9 hours for them to complete the sale, I came from Redding CA. They lied to me while I had been sitting for over an hour in a salesmans office saying they couldn't pull up my credit report to determine APR. The Manager ? Owner? not sure what he was, was visibly drinking/drunk in his office when I walked down to see where my salesman was. The 2005 Kia Sorrento has had several costly issues within the first 6 months. There is no integrity with this group and I saw a great lack of unprofessionalism, Even!! over the phone with the Female owner of WFA, when I went to pay off the car to stop the 29.99 money sucking pymts to these folks. Their words are meaningless so please don't get sucked into buying a vehicle from this losing integrity business.
this place knows exactly what's wrong with every car and yet still lies to make a quick buck! anybody on this lot would sell their soul just to see big $$$. I bought a 1997 dodge neon and was told by Ramero that the previous owner had stated that the whole top of the engine was recently done indicating that the timing belt water pump spark plugs and wires were replaced. when I took it home I felt a puttering and went to get it looked at and that's when the list started.
*motor mounts are stripped
*misfire in one cylinder due to low compression
*rear breaks are shot
*timing belt is worn badly and needs to be replaced along with the water pump
pretty much the whole engine is destroyed. I told the sales man I was in a bad situation and had very little money and he said its an old car but its good. I told him about the problems and he said that all mechanics want is money so they will tell you anything! and I told him it was a family friend so its not that he than proceeds to tell me its just an older car they have problems. most 1997 cars don't need a whole new engine!
all in all they won't refund me money I'm stuck with no car and no money still walking. these people are VERY UNPROFESSIONAL and VERY VERY SLEEZE! only go here if you wish to be ripped off and taken advantage of because This place is a dump!

Your logic seems to be built upon a very ghetto outlook. Kinda sleeze ballish. You seem to be angry at a buyer who is upset and with good reason... your logic is - shame on that individual, because they should have known better to have had the vehicle checked out before purchasing it... Therefore it is obviously that individuals fault that they, like many other buyers and yourself included (seems like way too many bad deals made at this used car lot... according to even you) bought a LEMON from this seller...and while there is NO DOUBT in my mind that this seller had the vehicle checked out prior to purchasing and putting the dealerships name behind it... I think that your ethics and customer empathy is beyond scuzz bucket! Here is a concept that you should try... tell people in advance what it is that they are buying and sale that item for its market value instead of overcharging ..and falling behind the good ole," well you should have known better to buy a vehicle from this dealership" excuse."... And when and if something should go wrong with a vehicle after it is driven off the lot...do not get mad at the innocent who spent 5000 dollars or more, trusting that they were driving away with something lasting, as in more than a few days.....instead, be fair! Its called good customer service.... p.s. I was merely checking this page because I was looking for a car, however was completely turned off by this companies FORMER sales person.
Every person employed at World Famous Auto is a crook. These people do not care about you, they care purely about making a profit. Here is why; we bought a 4 Runner from them for 5000 dollars. Not even a week later, it stops running. Turns out the transmission is shot. We trade in the 4 Runner for a Saturn and they tell us that they will completely get rid of the 4 Runner's loan. They do not bother to tell us that we will also be paying for the equity on the 4 Runner. Here is the deal, I understand the vehicle is 'as is' but these people will lie to you just to make a buck. The owner is completely unprofessional; we were there one night while he was literally having a fit, screaming and cussing, in his office. He had the audacity to tell us to recommend his business our friends. Please, save yourself the pain, and never ever go to this place.
Ok. So I took the time to read maybe two reviews and it's hillarious. OK! When you buy a car from any USED dealership the paperwork clearly states you are buying this vehicle as is no warranty. If you do not want problems with a vehicle have YOUR mechanic check out the vehicle first. The sales man is not going to know all that is wrong with a vehicle because his job is just to make the sale! They will say ANYTHING to get you to leave with a car. My suggestion to you people is again - check the FINE PRINT. It's not just World Famous Autos. In my experience I have been with them for over a year now. If you make your payments on time and dont give them a reason to be dickish to you than they are a pretty good company. I had originally bought a 2000 honda civic from there - owned it a month and boom the engine went out for no reason! Here comes the fine print - as is no warranty. - In the kindness of there hearts and after a week ina half of pesturing - they replaced my honda civic for a 2000 mitsubishi diamante CLEAN condition. It got me all the way to Michigan and back four times no problems! I live in Michigan state now - and I make my payments on time and I rarely ever have to speak to them. They are a GOOD dealership and I usually work directly with ALLEN! ! DONT TELL PEOPLE TO NOT GO THERE IF YOU HAVE HAD A BAD EXPERIENCE BECAUSE IF YOU ARE GUNNA GET PISSED AT A DEALERSHIP FOR DOING THERE JOB .. THAN MAYBE YOUR THE PERSON THAT NEEDS THE REALITY CHECK - NOT THEM! ! - NATALIE
I myself had heard bad things about this company, but we bought a SUV from them 4 years ago and have never had an issue. They worked with our credit situation and even re-fi'd us 2 years in to lower our interest and payments. Everytime I needed a few extra days to make my payment, they worked with me. I will buy from them again. :)
I knew right off, that the car I was about to purchase had been rear-ended. So funny that they insisted it had not. They did a poor "fix it" job...even a person who didn't know about cars could see that. Anyways...I had to spend $1500.00 right off to get the car lifted up to it's correct height. Boy, oh, boy...talk about damage from the lowered "job". I have put so much money into this red convertible, AND because I have, I will keep this as a second car. I just wish that people would be honest and true.
On top of everything else, I have paid my payments on time, this month was to be the last payment, and NOW they say "no, you have two more"...NICE! It's not like they ripped me off already. UNBELIEVABLE.
Will never, ever buy a car from World Famous Autos again. Will not recommend this company to anyone.
