Lisa, you should check with the office of the state attorney general to see if this situation is covered by what is known as the "lemon law." They can give you some clarification as to your legal rights regarding this. I hope this helps.

Just to let you know that Arkansas does have a Lemon Law, but a car lost only pays if the vehicle is under warranty, but that warranty on covers certain things, also the car lot it is their choice on whether they will cover vehicles or not, they don't have to. If you got the vehicle as is chances are it has no warranty and they are not obligated to pay for anything.

Well I work at a car lot, have for a while, All I have to say it, You are all grown ups, able to walk out of the dealership at any time. Not once did anyone twist your arm to make you buy the car. You cant tell me you werent there when you plain as day signed all the legal forms when purchasing the car, finance papers, title docs, oh and yes, the big piece of paper that says, AS IS, NO WARRANTY, and you put your big fat name right there beside the X. All I have to say is you were ther, You test drove it, u looked it over, u signed the papers, Its ur fault. Especially a wire short, thats a total freak thing. Dodnt happen very often, stop blaming the car dealers. Its part of owning a car, shit happens, deal with it. People are always trying to get perfect cars for nothing, Deal with it.

Well, thank you for your honesty. I always felt like used car salesmen thought we were all greedy fools. Now, it seems it is true. You DO think we are all greedy fools.

If a car is over 2 years old, the lemon law doesn't apply. I learned this the hard way when I called the state attorney general on Automaxx in Jonesoboro.

We bought a truck there about a year ago that only had 50,000 miles on it, but it was over 2 years old. The salesman "Daniel"...he's a lying ass on several levels.

First he said he had drove that particular truck for over a month and it was A 1....top of the line, not a problem with anything. We bought it and drove it off the lot and went to Hardees and tried to start it and it wouldn't start.

Over the course of the next 7 months....it was towed 14 times. I have the tow bills to prove it. it was in the shop several times and noone could ever fix the vast array of problems with it. Their responce? Too bad, you bought it....its yours.

We tried to simply give it back, but here's something you need to know before you buy one. If you dont have a warranty and its over 2 years old, it could literally fall apart....like ours and your STILL required to pay for it....even if you turn it back in.

He also said he would give me 200.00 for every custumer who came in and bought a vehicle and gave my name. I do charity work for animals and that kind of money was much needed, so I sent a friend in to buy a car.

He and his wife both put me down as a referal. Gave them my full name, number etc. No money. I called and he said they never bought a car....not knowing I was standing right next to them and their new car.

I said...you didn't sell them a 07 Silver Chevy Malibu with such an such miles....vin number XXXXX He started stuttering and stammering. He then told me they never mentioned my name when all 3 ppl who were with them all said they clearly did. Even his manager admitted to me he heard it. I still never got the money.

After our truck being worked on by their own mechanics, it being towed 7 times....once all the way from St Louis Missouri....we finally had no choice to give it back. Their still trying to get us to pay for it when it wasn't right from day one.

Do NOT.....I repeat do NOT buy from AutoMaxx in Jonesboro. Especially Daniel.

One thing I forgot to do....which I will soon. Turn their sorry asses into the better business bureu. It may not do anything for you, but after 2 or 3 people in a row turn them in, it could cause them alot of trouble and make them think twice before trying to screw people over.

I can relate to your story. I bought a car from auto max a couple of years ago. every week for two months something went wrong. finally that last week in that second month the motor blew up.

I bought my Charger from CarChoice and I love it. Havn't had one problem out of it and I've had it for about 2 years now. All I got to say is, you get what you pay for. If you brought one of those cars on the side of the building, then all you are getting is a car that someone else traded in. Be smart people! Get something with a warranty and you wont have this problem!

Like Brett says, you get what you pay for. Ture most of the time but not necessarily true all the time. There are thousands of cars that roll off the assembly line brand new every year that are lemons. You know why, because their man made! I took many trade in's in on trade and the owners knew the vehicles were on their last leg. Thats why they needed a new vehicle. Im about to trade off an SUV in the next month that needs several thousand dollars of work done on it in order for it to be realible. Im taking a huge hit on trade in value because the dealer I trade it into will know immediately that it needs work. They will sell it to a wholesale dealer that will also know it needs work. If the wholesaler buys the vehicle cheap enough to get the work done on it and still make money when they sell it, then they probably will fix it. But not all problems are as pronounced as mine. The wholesaler may buy a vehicle that seems in perfect working condition but something major goes out on it just after you buy it. Its not always the dealers fault. Just shitty luck for you. All these car lots sell warranties so if you dont buy one and the vehicle goes to shit then it is your fault. These warranties are just like any other warranty, you have to fight with them to cover anything but they usually pay up in the end. If you dont want to buy from these car lots, then make sure your credit is good and then you wouldnt have to worry about buying from the used car dealers. Im not saying buy a new car every time. But you can buy nice "pre-owned" vehicles at a new vehicle car lot. Also, check your credit history. You wouldnt believe the stupid shit people have on their credit history that prevents them from having a good credit score. Who cares if your ex boy/girlfriend was suppose to pay that bill. Who cares if the doctor didnt successfully treat your STD like he/she should have. Who cares if AT&T dropped more of your calls then they should have. Get over it and pay these bills if you can. Your credit score is your life. Take care of it! I have been "Daniel" before. I have sold vehicles before that I was told by someone else was an excellent vehicle. But in the end, they were not. Not my fault, except for believing the mechanic that the vehicle was a "very nice used truck". I still see the guy a few times a year and he looks at me like Im a piece of shit for selling him a screwed up truck. I honestly didnt know the truck was falling apart. Im not a mechanic. I can only go on what Im told by other people. If the owner/manager tells the mechanic to tell me the truck is perfect then thats what Im going to tell my customer. I sold my house in Little Rock to a couple who asked me if the pool had any leaks in it. I had been honest before and potential buyers backed out. I had no choice but to tell them "no the pool is in great shape". I even had to pay our pool guy some money for him to write a letter saying the pool was in working order. I had to sell the house (both me and wife had new jobs in Jonesboro) and knew I was losing $80,000 and couldnt afford to loose more by being honest about the pool. I only hope the new homeowners bought a warranty for the pool. Now karma has come back to bite me in the dick but that is life! I will take my loss on my SUV and hope it doesnt happen again. Sorry for long post but Im swerved!

I bought my truck from automaxx almost 3 years ago. They searched for weeks to find exactly what I wanted and it actually came from the car choice lot. I have not had a single issue with mine and it has well over 100k miles now. Everyone has different experiences and I'm sure I have been lucky to not have problems after reading this. I will be buying a new one in the next month and I will be going back there. The person that sold me my truck was honest and told me every issue each vehicle had on the lot. From this post I would say I was VERY lucky!

just watched some on the commercial with the owner and the manager. they want you to belive how great they are but their reputation preceeds both of them. they lie and will not do any better than any other used car dealer in town. i worked there and know first hand how they operate and how they try and copy everything another dealer does. just beware if you try and do business there

I guess you should've bought a car from Ashley at Automax. She's a wonderful person and a great salesperson and would never lie to anyone.
Just wondering
