They're still in business at a time when many others have closed. They must have something on the ball.

They mostly sell high mileage questionable cars with inflated prrices. Stay away from them...they sell junk.

like the above poster, my friend has bought 2 cars from them and they have been nice to him, but like the other above poster said , they do sell overpriced cars, but the sham(e) is the interest they charge. if u buy a car for 3,000 and pay out the payments u would of have paid close to 6,000 for that car. for them, after they get the down payment and a couple of payments, the rest is profit for them. i need a car, but im not dumb enough to go that route, ill save up then pay cash in time. Its the poor who get taken advantage of when it comes to buy here pay here, pay day loans, check cashing service, etc...dont get me started!

Lenders make loans to make money. When a person takes out a loan, they are making a decision to borrow money based upon the terms of the loan. Therefore, they are making an informed choice and are not being taken advantage of by the lender. That being said, you are right. The smart thing to do is to save enough money so that you do not have to take out a loan.

Nice selection of trucks but way overpriced. I was wanting to buy a 96 ford f250 4x4 diesel awhile back which had 204,000 miles on it cloth seats automatic standard xl truck with a few dings and scratches. I had to keep myself from laughing when the gentleman said we want 11,000 $ firm lol. Nice people and selection on trucks but the highest prices ive ever seen at used car lot

I bought a Chevy Silverado from there it looked nice salesman told me it came to them "that clean" that they didn't really have to do anything. he said he had sent it to the shop to fix a dent in the door but that was is. Well one year later the whole bottom is starting to rust through, basically he sent a rust bucket to the shop to be half way covered up to sell the whole underside is rusted pretty bad he just had it covered up with black paint. Since I have owned it I had to replace all four braker calipers because they was rusted up so bad, the air vents blow little chucks of greasy foam out from time to time, there was a birds nest in the bottom of the motor, the emerg brake cable broke in two. Lets just say he was less than honest about this truck. "it came to us this clean" What a joke they use lots of spray paint to cover the frame rust, and send to a second rate shop to spray a crappy coat of paint to cover the body rust up until it eats back through the paint a year later. I wouldn't bu from these people at all.

Somebody needs to show you how to inspect a vehicle before you buy it.

Oh I inspected it just fine but with all the cover up paint they caked on it was hard to tell it is just a shame car dealers lie to make a sale. Good honest sales people are the ones who stay in the business for many many years not these fly by night liars who sell junk and lie to customers. trust me it will come back to bite them one day. most likely you are one who works there, and checks these sites to see if anyone has caught on to the tricks and lies.
