Bought one car it worked good sent my sister there hers worked ok. So this past aug we buy an 03 envoy.well in dec we had to replace the alternator (sp) $250. jan 28th $3200 on transmission today $911 a/c compressir and drier. $368 in rental car fees. My husband tells josh at mountain motors all this and he saya he will just come and get it. I bet he would love that. New tranny etc. screw that. U would think that he would take something off but no. I understand its as is but damn. He is letting us miss a few payments but the car cost $10000 we only owe like 8000 now and it has cost me $4723 to fix it and the damn thing is still messed up. As much business as we have given them u would think there would be something they could do. I will never buy from them again and reccommend no one else does either.

I could have told you that. I wouldnt pay $1000 dollars for anything on that lot. Everything there has been ragged out, high miles, been flooded, wrecked.

why in the World are you so pissed at them? You bought a car AS IS that means no guarentee whatsoever. Did it ever acure to you that maybe they did not know nothing about the car itself thuis why they had it for say AS IS without warrenty? I would think that at least half of them would have been trade ins. If you get a trade in then even you don't know what may be wrong with it, thus put it for sale AS IS. You said that you had bought cars before from them an they were good, right? Why hold this one car against them? If you go to a store an buy a bag of apples and get 1 bad one, do you return the whole thing an say i will never buy from that store again? What about tators? I know i have bought a bag an gotten a few rotten ones in it. I think they treated you right by allowing you to skip a few payments, most dealers won't do that. you bought it in aug, then in Dec. the alternator went bad? That is a full 4 months before something went bad on it. An if you paid $250 for an alternator then you got screwed big time. You can get any part for any type car from pull a parts in knoxville or nashville cheap. an alternator cost around 20 bucks, Hell man you can get a whole new engine for under 100 dollars there. And a new tranny for around $79 an they are not bad parts they are simply wrecked cars that are pulled on the lot to sell the usable parts off of them. Don't believe me? well punch up pullaparts.com look at their price list. an in jan, 3200 on a tranny that you could of gotten for 79 dollars with warrenty?

look i am not saying mountain motors is good or bad, but you said yourself that you did buy a good car once an even your family member bought a good one. Don't degrade them over 1 that is not too good. an remember you said it is a 03, that is like 7 years old man, alternator was bound to go bad soon..

Yea, they set them up long enough to get them off the lot. Then they have $1000-$2000 dollars of your down payment money and they dont care if you pay for them or not. They actually hope you dont. They rig it back up, stick it back on the lot and get $2000 free money from someone else. They probably make $30,000 dollars off some of those cars they have $2000 dollars. They know you cant just drive up to a mechanic to get it checked out without making an appointment in advance.

mtn. motors is just like any other buy here pay here joint..they prey off the poor broke and stupid and peaple with terrible credit that cant get financed for a conventional vehicle loan..the vehicles are either high mileage..rebuilt or flooded etc. that more prestigious car lots wouldnt touch with a 10 foot pole..and the price that they ask for a down payment..you could use to pay cash for a decent enough vehicle to get yo u from point A to point >B until you can afford to upgrade to something a little nicer..and most of the vehicles at these places in the area come out of kentucky where tha laws on rebuilt vehicles are not very strict at all..stay away from the se places cause you will get burned

Really? R you that ignorant? I didnt buy from them because of my credit I bought from them because we never had issues before and I would rather give my money to small businesses. And u say im a piece of shit because I have bad credit? For your info I have decent credit except for my house because my mother had no healthcare and we had to get a 2nd mortgage to pay her dr bills and medicine so she didnt die u dumb mother f&@#er so go screw the guys at mt motors again and go on your way.

Almost all buy here pay here lots are going to have over priced cars. Where do you think they get those cars? Car auctions. and they price them thousands more for what they bought them. Save yourself some money next time you want a car and go to a car auction or a real dealership when you have money. Getting stuck with a payment is just stupid IMO.

Always buy new or nearly new. Don't be a cheapskate with an automobile. You will pay one way or the other. I'd rather pay more at point of sale than repairs.

Dustin Bullard?? Child abuser?? Really??
Did he beat the child or did he try to have sex with the child??
Yes Dustin Bullard was tried and convicted on child abuse here in Cumberland County. He beat the child terribly bad. Its public record. I cannot believe that he ended up marring a girl that already had a kid and theyve got a kid together! How dumb is that to marry someone knowing that they had been so cruel to another child. Those guys at Mountain Motors are fully aware of what he did too! In my book its like saying they dont care and that makes them as bad as he is!
