The other reviewers are absolutely right. The guys here are completely dishonest. On their website they advertised the vehicle that I was interested in for $3,500, but when I went to purchase the car, they had plenty of hidden fees that cost me another $900. The reason this took me by surprise is because I called two days earlier to inquire about a few vehicles, and when they gave me the price they told me that there is a warranty available for the vehicle and that the rate was a flat rate (I assumed this meant everything was included). So, I drove 1.5 hours to take a look at a few of the cars. When I was there, they ignored me for the first 20 minutes before anyone asked me which vehicles I was considering. When I finally took it for a ride (about 25 minutes on the hwy and interstate and through town, the vehicle seemed to run well. I checked the vehicle with an OBDII scanner and I looked at the tires, struts, drive axles, oil pan, dipstick, and I checked all over for red flags, but I saw nothing. I even ran a background check that came up clean (only one owner prior to me).
Then after I signed the contract and paid the money, I began to feel uncomfortable. That's when he sprang the additional charges on me, but I figured that it was reasonable (it was still under the KBB value). Then after he handed me the key and my copies of the papers, he received a call from someone I suppose was the mechanic, and during the phone call he said I am in the process of selling #_____, then he and the guy on the other line proceeded to laugh and he looked at me grinning. I tried to think nothing of it, but I had a bad feeling about it. As I was driving it home (about 90+ miles), as I got off of the interstate and put into first gear, THE CAR HAD NO POWER. I knew immediately that it was most likely a bad catalytic converter. I was right. After replacing it, I took the cat to a mechanic and he looked at it and found that the CAT had been tampered with, probably to make it last as long as possible. Three months later, I had to replace the plugs and ignition coil packs, only to recently find out that the engine has a blown head gasket that had been temporarily "fixed".
Needless to say, this place is dishonest.
***NOTE-this place always has a "sale" on vehicles. Don't believe them, it is too good to be true. A $400 docking fee? BS.
Stay away. I spent three trips to this place to look at a car ( over 1 hour round trip). After the second trip I decided I wanted the car but wanted to get my mechanic to inspect the car. Salesman went from being friendly to neutral. When I arrived the third trip with my wife so that we could get the inspection done and hopefully buy the car, the salesman announced that last month's sale (it was June 1) was over and that the price was up by $1100. When I started to question what was going on, the salesman turned his back to me and became rude. Said I was wasting his time. Wow! Red Flag!
Be very careful in dealing with this establishment!! They have a $300 document fee on all sales, but this is not disclosed anywhere on their website nor physically posted where it can be easily seen. Thus, the prices they advertise are very missleading! If they are not forthcoming about this, what about the cars are they not telling you??????
