BUYER BEWARE

Acworth, GA

#1 Feb 26, 2014
Bought 2007 VW Jetta from this guy on 2/24/14. He said only thing car needed was maybe some brakes. Advertised as Cold A/C and Immaculate vehicle. A/C didn't work but said he thought it was just that it needed a charge. Took to Masters Automotive on Hwy 41 in Marietta to inspect and they too gave clean bill saying only needed freon from what they could see. The owner of the garage knew the owner of this company though but they were they only people we could find to look at the vehicle. They too said that car was in great shape. Fast forward 5 days and now the car is at MY mechanic who immediately noticed that the car had been wrecked, the A/C high pressure hose was pushed back and sitting on the Drive belt which was about to break. The brakes were metal on metal along with long list of other issues that must be addressed. Right now looking at over $4500 in repairs for this IMMACULATE VEHICLE. This guys is not honest and I do not advice you buy anything from him without taking it to you OWN personal mechanic far away from the Marietta / Hwy 41 area. Car fax was clean so this car was fixed without reporting it but the moment my mechanic opened the hood he saw all the damage that hadn't been repaired. I suggest that you look for your car elsewhere and save yourself a big headache mentally and financially. I am devastated that we were ripped off like this after we did everything possible to avoid just this happening.

I don't know you or the seller, but it sounds to me like you should have taken the car to YOUR mechanic before buying it. If you knew the mechanic you used knew the seller then you should have went elsewhere. Don't trust carfax, autocheck is a bit better at showing accident damage but unless the car was in a wreck that was reported to law enforcement or insurance it likely won't show up on a history report. Caveat Emptor and I hope you get your car fixed up and are able to get years of service out of it.
