Has anyone bought a car from Alpha Cars? They have some good deals, but want to make sure they are good to deal with. I live several hours away.

Just bought a Lexus RX 330 from them. The car had a clean carfax report and they were more than welcome to let me take the vehicle to independent mechanic for a checkout before buying it. The mechanic said that the car is almost new condition and is a great deal. Granted, i have only had it for a few weeks but so far no problems and would definitely recommend that shop to any one who is looking for a good deal on a car.

I just bought a Lexus RX 330 from them as well. It was such a good price and I am so happy with the SUV. It was only a little over $13,000 for a Lexus. It needed two tires and had the original breaks on it, other than that, it was in great condition. I ran carfax and autocheck and it came back outstanding. Also, they let me keep the car to take it to my own mechanics so that was cool! I would recommend the autocheck for sure! They were cool and I would buy from them again if I can save this kind of money! No a rip off to me! LOVE MY NEW LEXUS!

I bought a Lexus from Alpha cars and saved thousands. I would have paid at least four thousand dollars more for the same car at a franchise dealership. The car drives like a dream and has no issues. I did my homework and got the car checked out by a mechanic. After all, it's only common sense when buying a used car to get it checked out by a third party. I will definitely recommend Alpha cars but don't be stupid. DO Your HOMEWORK!!!! For others, just go buy a new car.

I am happy with my decision purchasing my M45 from their last month. They are very easy people to work with. They let you take the car to mechanic. The cool thing is that they have the Car Fax Links on there web sites which makes it easy for every one. I also Ran Auto Check on some other vehicles in their inventory and they were all clean. I am looking forward to buy another car for my cousin from them. I would strongly recommend them

I bought a 2006 650i BMW for 34k about a couple of months ago. I am an exporter and bought several highend cars from these guys and exported them out of US. I have actually made quiet a little fortune on the deals I have gotten from them. They are a very small shop but the guy knows how to get good deals from the auctions. Highly recommend these guys. Good experience so far. Plan on doing more business with these guys. I hope they stay in business.

BE VERY CAREFULL WITH THESE GUYS. I am sure the salespeople at this dealership are posting on this thread. I would recommend running a google search for GA CAR MART and reading other threads. Alpha carz was previously called GA CAR MART. As far as my experience, i tried to purchase an Acura MDX from them. I test drove the SUV and something didn't seem right about it. They gave me a clean carfax report. I went back home and ran the report myself. My carfax report had two accidents with airbag deployment. Both the accidents had taken place over an year ago. Don't know how come the report given by GA CAR MART didn't have any accidents? They may have some good deals out there but my advise is to check each and every panel of the car very carefully. Look for paint over spray, mismatched color, missing trim pieces. RUN YOUR OWN CARFAX, and AUTOCHECK REPORT. If it passes all these tests then take the car to a franchise dealer to get it checked. I ended up buying from another local dealer.I paid a few hundred dollars more but ended up with a reliable and safe SUV. Good luck to all car hunters out there.

I live about 4 miles from Alpha Cars and they have been around for about a year. I recently bought a 2006 Acura TL. The guy told me that it had some paintwork and allowed me to do an independent inspection. During my car search process I have been to many dealers and there is a lot of people that are not as courteous and straight people as these guys are. Sales guy asked me to write a review about them so here I am. A HAPPY CUSTOMER and I recommend them. Small dealership but a good business.

I looked at an Acura TL and was curious why they left the windows down on a nice looking TL. When I got in, I immediately realized the car had been flooded. The car smelled like mildew, and the seat belts were all stained like they had been submerged under water for a while. I personally do not trust these small wholesale shops. They get these amazing deals because they are selling unsafe cars. If you do your own research, i'd be willing to bet that over 90% of their cars were bought at an auction with frame damage or flood damage. I asked if the car had ever been in a wreck, and they guaranteed me that it hadnt and showed me some carfax report. I asked my dealer friend to look up this car and it had been purchased at an auction in Florida with frame damage, and they were selling it for about 4k more than they paid. If you think the deal is too good to be true, then it probably is....

Good report Wendy. I watched it last night. The main thing is people need to do their homework with dealing with any car dealership and or used car. GA law does need to be updated so that you can easily know if the car has been damaged.

BUYER BEWARE! We drove 4 hours to buy a car that these men had promised had not been wrecked! It was also not reported wrecked on carfax! A dealership and a body shop checked the truck out and it had been SMASHED! THe car was beautiful! When we got back to tell them we were not going to buy it they lied some more and then told us that most people dont care as long as their getting to drive a name brand car! We are now driving the car we wanted for a great price and know it is in great shape from a big dealership! CHECK AUTO CHECK, dont trust the carfax!Also, do not give them your keys!

I work at Alpha Cars. To all potential car buyer's out there, as you may already know that used car business is differest than other businesses where even though the product you are selling is used and it is NOT manufactured by the seller, however, the customer expectation are still very high, almost that of a new car. What a used car dealer can do is that they can offer some sort of warranty on some major items such as Engine, Transmission, Airbags etc as a customer courtesy act. Most used car dealers, however BIG or SMALL usually don't do that and sell it AS-IS. The GA law governing the sale of USED CARS is also clear in that if a used car is sold AS-IS (which most of them are), the dealer doesn't has too responsibility after the sale.

Alpha Cars - a small dealership - however, in a spirit of great customer service, offers a limited Powertrain warranty on all late model vehicles unlike other BIG dealerships. We also understand that NOT every car in our inventory is going to have an impeccable history and NOT every car in any used car dealer lot has an impeccable history (I have worked at several BIG dealerships).

What you as a BUYER can do is that you can run your own history reports or take it for something called Pre-Purchase inspection. This last mentioned step, you should do regardless of where you are buying the vehicle from.

Alpha Cars sells several vehicles a month. We have plenty of happy customers out there however, every once in a while you have some unhappy customer. If they come back to us, we try our level best to address their grievances and concerns. All the negative comments written on this blog, none of them have ever contacted us about anything. Take for instance this person named Becky, now she is complaining about some MDX that she bought here. The date she wrote this comment is on Mar 22, 2009. I went to my records and discovered, we didn't have a single MDX from Feb-March. I checked every single MDX we have had in last few months and NONE of them were sold to anyone named Becky or Robecca. This is serious foul play however, unfortunately we can't stop it.

ONE MORE VERY IMPORTANT THING, BLOGS ARE ANONYMOUS BY NATURE AND ANYEONE - INCLUDING A COMPETITOR DEALERS - CAN POSE AS A CUSTOMER (e.g. Becky) AND WRITE OVER THERE. PLEASE DO YOUR DUE DILIGANCE AT THE TIME OF BUY YOUR VEHICLE AND NOT BASED ON SOME BLOG. IF EVER IN DOUBT, CONTACT US AND WE CAN GIVE YOU NAMES OF ATLEAST HUNDREDS OF OUR CUSTOMERS WHO HAVE ALREADY BOUGHT CARS FROM US AND YOU CAN TALK TO THEM INDEPENDENTLY.
SUNNY MANAGER BEAWARE

I came to buy a suv from Sunny the manager at alphacars.com He stated and showed me a clean carfax, and free of accident. Early that evening i had a inspection at Nally lexus on Mansell. i went to nally lexus dealership and i found out that the car was involved in ACCIDENT, but they ran a autocheck, which i did not know about. The autocheck came back 64 score lowest seen by lexus, however announced sold ad FRAME DAMAGE/ UNIBODY..........
Nally lexus of roswell recomended do not buy any this suv.
I took a day off to do car shopping and came across a fales ad misleading infomation. Maybe sunny did not know about the carfax but i bet he knew about the announced cars from auction. I was told that auction cars are sould under green light, yellow light and red light and it can have any light but carry a annoucement as well.
O'well sunny please be upfront he could have told me all this. i would have saved and not be a part of a scam.
BUYER'S BE AWARE AND GET YOUR CARS INSPECTED BEFORE ANY PURCHASE AND SURLY RUN AUTOCHECK.COM AND CARFAX.COM
YOU NEVER KNOW WHO HAS EVIL INTENDED.

This person "SUNNY MANAGER BEWARE" is NOT a real customer, and a dealer posing as a customer. We had no vehicle that went to Nalley for inspection in these dates. Nalley BTW, never really check run the history reports, they themselves has cars in stock with paintwork and prior accident histories, they sell them as Lexus certified, because by definition, accident does not render a vehicle useless or lesser of a vehicle.
