I bought a vehicle several years ago from him and it was junk.I had to spend about $2000 to fix it about 2 weeks after i bought it.Also the gas gauge didn't work on it.He told me it was almost out of gas and when i bought it,i filed it up and the guage didn't move.I had to replace the head gaskets on it.He put some stop leak stuff in it so he could get it sold.He is a crook!!I won't ever buy another vehicle from him again.

Yep same story here i had to spend about $2000 on a new transmission after him lying telling me it was a good vehicle. The transmission was slipping the day after i bought it. I would never buy anything from him again & i make sure i tell everyone not to buy from him. U cant lie to people & then expect to have a good name.

Everyone gets a lemon sometime but that is not his falt. Do you think he knows everything about the cars he buys or what the owner of the car did before he got it. You want another business to go out , what will carthage have then. I think they have been around along time 30 years or more.

Yep, at around 35% INTEREST rate. Used car bank rates are around 9% for older cars. Less for newer cars. Credit cards from 11% to 23% depending on credit score. But if your credit score sucks. Guess you have no choice.
West deals in cash. You arrange your own banking, or pay cash. There is a difference in buy here pay here. If your car is a lemon, you can quit paying without worry. Your credit score sucked to begin with. Otherwise, credit score has to be protected. Plus the cars are more expensive at buy here pay here lots. Some sell the same car several times because its a lemon and people quit paying. They just repo it and sell it again.
So buyer beware, is always the thought when buying a car. Take it to a mechanic, and drive it for at least a half day before buying it. Tell the sales person you intend to drive it a while and take it to a mechanic. If they bulk on that. Run away. They know its junk.

Just ask for the CarFax.
They usually buy cars at auction. So.. If you are gonna buy used, be smart and have a mechanic check it out before signing on the dotted line.

I guess that makes you stupid for not checking it out. Check the car out before getting a loan for it.

yup sure it wasnt. What rate was it? Bet you dont even know. Thats the way they do it. They dont mention the rate. Most are so glad to get a car they dont bother reading or ask about interest rates. Buy here pay here dealers buy form the junker lane in the auction. You know. The miles are more than the retired space shuttle, the lights in the dash are all lit, there is body and paint damage, mismatched tires, leaks, and rebuilt titles. Just to name a few reasons they sell under the red light in the auction. Other dealers look down on them. Mostly because they give them a bad rap, as people generalize and bundle them all as used car salesmen. There is a difference. Go check out an auto auction and see for your self. I have had the pleasure. On second thought it wasnt a pleasure. It was an eye opener however. Seen cars sell for $800-$1200, selling the next day on the lot for $3500-$5500. Depending on what they think you are willing to pay. Then add interest. Dont try to paint a buy here pay here as a pretty place. Its a far cry from being that.

Yep, bad ones to buy here pay here. The good ones are bought by other lots, which require cash. The Bank always knows what they will loan on a certain car. if its more than loan value. You have to determine if you are willing to pay a down payment for the balance. Do your homework before buying a car. Get on the computer an get reviews. Make the test drive last for 4 hours or so. Have a mechanic check it out. Make sure all the safety devices work. Dont buy a car with the check engine light on. No matter what they say is the problem. Tires are expensive. Make sure it has good tires. At $800 to $1000 as set. Take that into consideration. If they have to jump start it. You will also. Or spend several hundred to fix it. Everything you find wrong. Deduct from the price for parts and repairs. He would do the same buying your car. Use common sense. Dont make an impulse buy!!! Also looks is great, but good mechanical condition gets you there and back.Lots of good looking junk sitting around. You know, the tranny slips a little bit going into gear. But look how good it looks.$2500 later it dont look so good.

People trade in their cars for a reason. Usually not just because they want a change. Buying used is buying someone else's problems.
So when I am looking for a used car, I go for a spin, check everything out. Listen for noises, glitches in shifting, dummy lights, AC / heat the blower etc..the whole 9 yards. Then I take it to my mechanic, he rides along, I mention my concerns and findings. He listens to the car and drives a bit himself. We go back to the shop he puts it on the rack checks out everything underneath, tie rods,universal joints,calibers, transmission, any noticeable leaks, or fluids, tire wear. Then he opens the hood and checks in there. I have him run a diagnostics on it.

If he says it is decent, tells me what (if any) repairs it needs, and the cost of repairs. Then I will deal with a car dealer, with a written estimate in hand. A reputable dealer will be happy to haggle. If not, my money spends anywhere.

It costs me 75 bucks for my mechanic, but compared to possible thousands in repair bills later. I think it's worth it.

Buyer beware. When you drive it off the lot the problems become yours.
