paid a little more - as to be expected with my bad credit.. but I paid my car payments on time and never had a problem other than normal wear & tear.. ya know, battery, tires..
Can not even rate one star. These people are uncaring crooks.300 dollar repossession fee???? Because i was having a personal tragedy in my family and couldn't talk, I was told i couldn't get the car back after being told I could with a repo fee of 300 and reinstating my insurance. These people seem to make rules and go by their own discretion. Hence, there aren't any "rules". These people want your money and that's it. A real company after , paying faithfully and on time for months on end would give anyone a fair shot.. these "crooks",not a chance. Run! Just run!
I was currently using a scooter to get to work and the cold days came.. it started becoming a little hard to actually get to work and back since i was nearly frozen. Eventually i heard of this place called bond auto sales which supposedly gave a helping hand to people with bad credit and welcomed customers with open arms. Once the process began it was a nightmare, i thought i would leave with a car at about $500 but nope they took quite a chunk of money to do the entire process (estimate about 1k and some change). The guy who i spoke to named james mentioned "oh you have a scooter? well don't worry i will buy it off of you to help you in covering all these costs some" bs as soon as i managed to get the car i tried to get him to buy the scooter as he had previously offered, he just ignored it. The down payment for the vehicle ended up being more than what "james" had mentioned and so i ended up paying even more. Now this is where it gets worse... he first mentioned that any repairs would be covered even though the car is "as-is" as long as i had made enough payments on the vehicle to sum the amount needed for repairs. So one day i went to start the car and it wouldn't so i was planning on taking advantage of this suppose offer to get the car checked and fixed and to my surprise after i called to inquire they said "no the car is as-is so you are in charge of the repairs" and here's the really screwed up part, the car has what is known as a "kill-switch" which is pretty much a device that buy-here pay-here are putting in vehicles to make sure that if a customer is late on a payment that they can't no longer use the car until the payment is made but i had made my payment on time no problem. Now the car is going on 5 months and i decided to take it to a repair shop because it seemed to be leaking oil... come to find out the cam shaft sensor is done, the oil pressure switch is also done and there are a few other minor issues but one main one that deals with the alignment of the vehicle and it's going to cost about $900 to fix. Also note that this cars original price according to blue book is suppose to be about $4k max and yet with the stinking financing they upped it to $10k.... for 10k you'd think i should have a pretty decent vehicle. It's definitely wise to know what you're getting into before you pick a car for your needs... i failed and i am now paying the price JUST for the sake of having a car to keep me warm and take me safely to and from work.. don't trust bond auto sales.
Not your traditional car dealership, I loved the process from start to finish. They weren't trying to sell a dream or just put you in a car to get the sell. They approved me and let me explore their lot by myself, no chicken hawking and still ready and available to answer my questions. Once I found a car they threw me the keys and let me test drive it, not your typical mom sitting in the backseat test drive, just me and my new car... I could give Bay Pines Auto Mart praise all day but I really want to thank Tommy, I don't want to label him a car salesman because he went above and beyond that. Thank you Tommy, Bay Pines Auto Mart should be honored to have someone like you representing them.Thank you from a Super Pleased Customer!
This place is awesome, they're very helpful, good cars, and friendly. I've had 2 cars through them and they both ran great. The service is great, and the owner works with you! I recommend anyone to them.
These guys are great, was planning on going to a big corporate dealership in North Clearwater (far away). Found the car I wanted at Bay Pines Auto Mart. I made it clear that I did not want to sit around and didn't have the time to wait for a salesman to go back and forth to a finance manager. They asked for a half hour of my time, I drove down and left with my new car and came back and did the paperwork. Great friendly laid back guys, here, with no B.S. Will definitely recommend BP Auto Mart. Great friendly, prompt service and great cars on the lot. Whatever you're looking for they have.
Best prices and staff in town!!! Over the past 15 years I have purchased many cars from Bargain Auto and referred my friends and family to go there as well. The owner and staff is super friendly and very reasonable. I would never go anywhere else to buy a car. The person that wrote the review below must be a nut job cause I have never heard of anyone talk bad about this company in my many of years of going there. This guy must be a complete nut job!
I purchased a vehicle 2 years ago from Bond in St.Pete.It was everything they said and more,even after 30 days they offered to fix a minor issue which was door handle.I have only done routine maintenance. Very happy with customer service.
My cousin, a single mother of three young children (living on a very limited income), financed a vehicle this month (March, 2013) from Creel Motors.Two days after she purchased the vehicle, the turn signals failed to work properly and it took her several tries to get the engine to turn over. She tried to drive the vehicle on the highway but, once the car reached over 40 miles per hours, it began to shake violently, and she had to pull over. When she returned to Creel Motors to have the car diagnosed, the mechanic told her nothing was wrong with it. The mechanic also placed the blame of the vehicles failures on my cousin, saying she must have "dogged the car out." About a week later, she noticed on the dash, behind the glass, black electrical tape had been placed over the dummy lights to cover them up--a clear act of deception. When she confronted the mechanic about this, he claimed he had not noticed it before. Now the glove compartment is beginning to come "unglued" and a headlight has come loose. Because she bought the car "as is" she is being told she must pay to have the engine replaced (because it is making a very loud noise) in addtion to making her scheduled monthly payments. Please check out the Better Business Bureau's website for Creel Motors: http://www.bbb.org/west-florida/business-reviews/used-car-dealerships/creel-motors-in-saint-petersburg-fl-24331. Fifteen complaints have been filed against this business within the last three years, ten of which were for "problems with product/ service."
Was told quote: I you have any problems that they work with me on the repairs even after the 30 day warranty. Said they will match or go below competitive mechanics
