Bought a car from these shady people in 2011 and have regretted it ever since. Since the purchase, I have found many missing parts (catalytic converter, MAP sensor) as well as shoddy work (exhaust system held up entirely by coat hangers, etc.). I also learned that they sold it to me only days after getting it on the lot, no inspection, no work done - told me it was in GREAT shape and hadn't even looked at it before offering it for sale. I wouldn't buy another car from these criminal a-holes if someone put a gun to my head. Avoid at all costs!!!!

Under warranty, but still did not do work. Did not replace left wheel bearing like they said they did and it then caused the failure of more parts which cost over $1200 to have done correctly.

Why are these people still in business? How can people not know that they sell junk?

If you take a look at BBB's web page, you'll see that there were only 4 complaints filed against them through the BBB. They're till in business because people are not filing their complaints with the people who can do something about it. It's worth the hassle - I agree these crooks need to be hosed.

443 Auto Sales Complaint

United States

Im a highschool student with on a part time job and I just bought a $6000 Focus from 443 less than two weeks ago. The clutch, the pulley, the air module, the muffler, and the muffler brackets all have to be replaced. I had a ford inspector look at my car and he informed me that I have multiple holes in my exhaust and that both of my brackets are broken. The guy who sold me the car is also trying to deny me of the warranty that came with my car by not giving me my copy and by not correcting it on the pink reciept copy. I have asked him multiple times. I was told to go to the state police because they shouldnt have passed the car for inspection since there are holes in the muffler and because it is leaking all over and that is exactly what I plan on doing. Are there any laws like the lemon law that apply to used cars in Pennsylvania?

Police from numerous communities responded to a call just after 1 p.m. Thursday afternoon of a man with a gun at the 443 Auto Sales along SR443 in Mahoning Township. Reports were the man was angered over a recent purchase of an auto and was confronting the management. He soon left traveling west on SR443 where police pulled his car over just west of Seneca Road. The man was questioned before being handcuffed and transported to the Mahoning Township police station
