No offense, but I go by there after hours to see what kind of junk is on the lot...most of those cars look like they've had the airbag cover blown off at some point. I've seen a few hanging pretty loosely, too.

If you've gotta' buy from there, my bet is that you really aren't in a position to complain. There is nto wanting a new car, but then there those cars...

EXPECT THE REPO MAN

Houston, TX

#27 Nov 6, 2012
This man should be convicted of usury! After paying $12,000 on a truck and making a payment on a Saturday with no mention of any problems - he sent a repo guy out the following Thursday.

Had to pay balance off on truck PLUS $800 "repo fee for difficult customer." This when they never even attached a tow truck to the truck - we drove it down - or called to ask for a payment!!! I wonder - how many people do they do this to when the balance gets below $3000 and then just take their truck back to RESELL IT TO THE NEXT SUCKER?!!!

Most people could not come up with payoff PLUS $800.00 on the spot. Watch out fo the jovial facade of this old man, from what I hear he's been ripping people off for years!

Covingtons auto is a piece of shit car lot that is ran by a family of racist" WHITE B****S" and all they do is scam people. The old man is a scammer too! And so is his son DAVID. They appear to be nice, caring people, but don't let that shit fool you. The father and son work well together to scam people. They are quick to take your money and give you a vehicle that will break down the next week you get it. Of course the test drive will go well. I paid $1500 down for a 2004 Dodge Durango limited and a week later the computer had completely failed. This problem happened after they were supposedly replacing my battery. I ended up having to take the truck to a dodge dealership because covingtons ” claimed” they couldn't find the source of the problem. I took it to dodge and they found that wiring inside the truck had been recently cut and taped back together. This caused the entire computer to fail, along with many other problems that cost about $1300 to fix.........They were not even willing to work with me on pay the repairs when their bullshit mechanics cut all the ignition wires. It was no accident that this happened. They were insisting I bring my vehicle to them to get the repairs done. I did and they claimed they didn’t know what was wrong. The bottom line is Covingtons was the problem all along; they created all this shit happening to my truck. Unfortunately, figured it out too late!

Read the contract... if you don't like the terms you don't have to sign.
Covington's provides a service... and enables people who otherwise would not be able to get a vehicle to obtain one.
Used car sales is a tough business and Covington's has been in La Porte for a very long time... while Ford and Chevy have left town.
Give the man a little respect.
This must be one of the owners! I am handicapped (with plates to prove it ) after being a nurse for 20 years. I had 3 payments left before my car was paid off . l Called to tell them that my payment would be late this month. But when it was 2 1/2 WEEKS late they repo 'd it! Again, 1 had 3 payments left!. 1 paid nearly $11,000 for my car and they STOLE it for $1200!!!. Now they want $2300 after they ruined the front tires and probably the transmission!. l cant even get to the doctor!. They don't deserve any credit! They deserve a bullet between the eyes!

I heard from a small used car dealer that MOST of the smaller Used Car Dealers everywhere prey on the lower working class and expect to repo the car in a few months...just to RESALE the same car later and start that process again. Go to a NEW CAR DEALER when buying your kids a used car, I've never had a problem with them!
An article in the paper also said that with 'Certified' Used Cars could only mean that they can certify that it is USED (no full check of the car mechanical ability)! LOL!

Horrible experience in 2012.
His dad had a better reputation that him. His dad is actually the only one that tired to help me by promising he would fix the car himself if I called to schedule maintenance.
Covington’s son successfully killed what his dad has worked for and he’s put his family’s name to shame!
This man literally stole from me.
I was under the impression that his son was a good man as well, until the second I put cash into his hands! I was fooled and I sure did learn from it! I was able to test drive the car.
I should have got the hint when he said “just be back in less than 10 minutes” because the second I drove off the lot (after financing the car), the check engine light came on and the car continued to overheat.
I was promised that this would be fixed. I called several times, only to be put off my wife who runs the front desk. The car continued to overheat, to the point where I could not drive the car back to the lot. Payment was due on a Friday, and although I called and let his wife know the car could not make it up there due to the overheating, she had an attitude, treated me like a crook and sent their repo truck to get my car.
Then they tried to charge me more than what my original down payment was to get the car out. Once I tried to retrieve my belonging, they denied that they were mine and literally told me it’s my loss because young people like me don’t know how to take care of responsibilities.
He went as far to say that I am just like his teenage daughter!
If this is how he runs his business, then that’s his name that he’s ruining.
I just HOPE that this REVIEW stops someone else from being SCREWED.
I actually prayed for this man when he took my car and tried to degrade me.
Bless his heart!

Exactly, if it can't crank, start and run on its own and does not have a recent inspection... keep walking.
