Avoid this business!!

Here is our story...We purchased a MINI Cooper from Northside Motors Inc. three days ago. It was represented to be in "excellent" condition, and to have been fully checked out by their mechanic. Less than one mile from leaving their business, the engine started misfiring. We drove to the nearest MINI dealership/service center where it was diagnosed with a $5000 engine issue that (according to the dealer) had been present for a long time (i.e there's no chance that the seller didn't know about it). Patrick Gillis, the owner of Northside Motors Inc., refused to accept the car back, or share any of the costs of the repair, even though we had just left his office a few minutes earlier and could not possibly have damaged the car. There is no doubt that they committed fraud, and completely misrepresented the condition of the car. It turns out that the entire engine has to be replaced with a used one (the cheapest option), which we are having done at an independent shop at a cost of over $4000.

I cannot imagine a more dishonest way to run your business.

Northside Motors offered to give this customer a 100% refund of his money. He decided to keep the car since it was sold at wholesale value to him.

I just bought a 2006 Volkswagen Jetta from Northside Motors. I was very pleased with the deal that I received from them. I was looking for many weeks for this car and was recommended by a friend to see them. Northside Motors sells at wholesale value not retail like some of the used car dealers do in Alpharetta GA. Patrick the owner is very pleasant to deal with. I will recommend them to all my friends and family.
