The buying experience was good. Pat is a nice old guy. But the quality of cars is horrible, he won't hold up to agreements. His "financing" is $200 flat fee. The cars are all on the low end. Most of them are salvages with tons of defects/accidents and are not safe to drive. They junkyard the parts and barely put them back together. Just enough they make it off the lot. The car had broken down dozens of times. I put as much in repairs as I did for the car. I went through three cars trying to find one that would last out the 30 days "warranty". Each time there was a swap, new loan, new $200 fee. If you miss a payment, don't expect legal debt collection. after being 3 weeks behind on my final payment (after 8 months of payments). I got a call from a guy claiming he found my wallet on his construction site and he'd drop it off. My wallet was lost/stolen about 2 weeks prior so I thought someone had found it. He was 'in my neighborhood' but couldn't find my house from the address. When I gave him directions and stepped outside he was standing there, telling me he needed the keys. STAY AWAY!
This is the best, most honest, most fair car company I have had the pleasure of dealing with in 50 years. I now have my second car from them. When I traded in my first car, they were more than fair, they were generous. I have four friends who have also had wonderful things to say about their experience with Pat Twyman. Two of them were my personal referrals, and there will be more. They do their own financing. No need to deal with "tight-fisted" bankers. If there is something that needs to be repaired, they will do it and add the cost to the end of my loan payments, so that I don't have to worry about paying it all at once. They give me peace of mind.
