One of the vehicles I bought from them was advertised as "Runs and drives"
and it turned out the timing chain was broken and made a hole in the cover.
(when I got there to pick it up they couldn't start it and said that their mechanic
tested it and for some reason there was no spark..... but they run it a day before. I am a mechanic and first thing I saw when I opened the hood was oil everywhere and a hole in the aluminum chain cover.... and seized engine.)
I went to pick up the vehicle 72h after the online auction so too late to return.
Another one had brand new tires on the pictures. They made sure the close ups
would show how nice the tires were. Damage was to the RF corner (easy fix).
When I got there (I drove over 1000miles) it had bold tires! It even had an inventory sticker on the inside of the windshield from the insurance company that they were selling it for and it said that 4 tires were @ 95% and spare @ 100%. An SUV with bold tires.... it cost me an extra $1000 to put it back on the road. Good thing I had a flatdeck trailer and didn't attempt to drive it home cause they left the lug nuts loose!
Thieves and liars! I contacted managers of both yards months ago and still haven't heard from them.
Yes you can get a good deal from them if you're lucky but with today's market of buying, fixing and selling they make it more of a gamble to make
a profit. No matter what, they charge $ from sellers and buyers but when there is a complaint they can't be bothered.
I can't even count how many times they damaged my vehicle's suspension parts and bumper covers with their forklifts. It all has to be taken into consideration. Their rough handling of a car can cost an extra $1000 to$1500 on average.
There are other auctions that might have a smaller selection but you won't be treated like shit and owners will do their best to make customers happy.
I'm surprised that the insurance companies are still dealing with copart.
Good way to ruin their reputation........

These cars have the keys in them and will crank even if the fluids have leaked out.. just because it cranks doesnt mean itll last.. I looked at a truck and considered bidding, I started it and checked it out and wen I looked it up, it had already been sold.. I dont feel too comfortable with bidding on a car that someone can monkey with before I can go get it.. and omg those forklift drivers are gonna kill someone..

I have bought a couple of cars in copart and most of the time it has been a good deal. sometimes I have had back luck with details or problems the car would have without advertising. But of course it a salvage yard and the cars ended up there for a reason. if we wanted a warranty or a car with no problems we go to a dealer. so any of you knows of another place for actions better than copart?

I had bought a 2010 bmw, from them (stated as runs & drives), and the same shite happen to me. Picking the car, but end up tow it home, and that sucks. That car has so many parts missing from the engine, there's no f**ken way that car was ever runs on it's own power when it came to copart. If it is, then it must be stolen by copart employees, and copart should be responsible for that kind of shite. Copart is a bit**.......
Dont' t ever buy from them!!!!!!!!!! Stay away!!!!!!!!!!

You'll end up spending more money then buying from the dealer........

Copart gives plenty of oportunity to inspect the cars before the sale date....if you dont take advantage of that ,, why is it their fault???? sounds like irresponsible "victim" mentality.... if you dont have automotive knowledge or are to lazy to drive yourself to the copart facility to do an inspection.... YOU HAVE NO BUSINESS BIDDING ON THE CARS ,DUMBASS.... IT IS A SALVAGE CAR AUCTION,,,, MAYBE COPART SHOULD HAVE THE WRECKED CARS DETAILED AND PUT AIRFRESHENERS IN THEM FIRST????

You guts that buy these cars from a salvage sale and then expect you can drive them home are just plain stupid! Maybe even too stupid to be out on the road driving anyway. Look at the title info dumb dumb. This is a salvage auction not a car dealership. Everything is as is and there for a reason. I have bought plenty of cars from Copart either to repair and retitle or to part out. If you are stupid enough to travel a 1000 miles to buy a Honda with a salvage title and then get mad at the people selling it.... Then please do us all a favor and give the keys to someone else that may have some small shread of brain activity.

First off copart is great I bought over 100 cars from there. You just need to no about cars. If you don't them then stay away. I bought a 03 Nissan altima with rear tire missing for 1600 low miles 76000. Sold it for 4800 and cost 300 to fix. Example. People need to stay off copart that don't no shit about cars. People nowadays want everything for nothing. And most cars there are better than the ones at the dealer auctions atleast you no it was running when they crashed. Most salvage cars are better than clean titled ones. Its like this car dealing ain't easy you just got to no what sells and the tricks. And I hate people on there that run up the car so high you can't make a profit as a dealer and by the way glad most of you hate it.

Dumb asses,don't buy run and drives they are mostly all bad. And. If you spend more than 5000 on a car there your just an idoit. At all car auctions the car has been mess with,so dealer lots same thing. Waste your money and buy a new car u lose 8000 soon as u drive off the lot good luck

I do a lot of business with copart buying and selling and I have never had a problem the cars are what they say they are look at the pictures and prices they are not a car lot they sell wrecked and repossed cars they don't have the cars checked and if they did there would b a fee and cry babys would complain about that too. If you want a car with no problems go to a car lot
There is no need for name calling. Copart is deceitful and that us the bottom line
