DO NOT ever buy a vehicle from Walt Hollifield, he has a lot down on the Erwin Hwy (107) in the South Central area.
He buys wrecked vehicles, pretends to fix them, details the vehicle and sells them to the public after he looks you right in the eye and tells you, "this is a great vehicle, the motor is good, this will last you forever as long as you just change the oil" when indeed, the motor is so screwed up that when you get it home after having it a few days, the antifreeze is leaking directly into the motor, there is silicone holding parts in place and around seals so you wont see leaks, the mechanic even offers to allow Walt to come down so that he can see for himself all of the problems that the vehicle has, he refuses to go at least look.. because he knows the mechanic is correct in saying that the vehicle is NOT even safe to drive let alone sell to someone in this condition. BOTTOM LINE, dont buy anything from him.. He is a crook, a liar and a fraud.. we paid over 4000.00 for this vehicle, since then, repairs, labor and parts an additional 800.00, now we have to buy a motor for it 1470.00 plus parts and labor.. I mean, I realize that when you buy a "used" car, you take a chance of having problems down the line and normal wear and tear issues, but we got lied to and royally screwed.. If he would have been forthcoming about the problems, that would be understanding and at least prepared for these problems. BEWARE PEOPLE..

If you have a mechanic you trust I would take the vehicle there before you buy it. If the seller is not willing to let you take it in for a look over then walk away. I almost bought a car once that looked good but once my mechanic looked at it I found out it had been in a wreck and fixed with crap parts. You can also run the vin at carfax to see if there are any accidents on its record.

Thanks, unfortunately we trusted the seller because he was "family".. a huge lesson learned for us.. but after we were told by our trusted mechanic, they offered for him to come to the shop so he could see for himself what a total mess the vehicle was in, HE REFUSED !!! and the vehicle was for my 17 yr old daughter which he was aware of because he specifically said "oh, this car will last her through college" !!! what a joke. there was silicone used all over the engine parts that the mechanic pointed out and he even made the comment that it was used to "hide the major problems".. like I said, hard lesson learned for us. Pretty bad when you can't even trust your own family..:(
