GA Car Mart is a RIPOFF!!!

I would have it checked by my own mechanic. If they are really trying to make the sale, they'll let you take the car overnight so you can have it looked over. If the carfax and autocheck come back clean, you might have a winner.

doublecheck: Much appreciate that. I took it to my mechanic and he said it was a beauty. Just maybe these guys do sell some decent cars at reasonable rates. Only time will tell but I'll be sure to report back here in a month or two.

I bought a car 6 months ago from GA Car Mart. No issues so far. I just thought that there should be some positive feedback left here as well.

Does anyone know which car dealers are associated with GA Car Mart? I am guessing that if might be Atlanta Ultra Cars, Atlanta Used Car Center, Horizon Luxury Cars, Alpha CarZ, Atlanta Best Car Deals, and the extremely shady GA Best Car Deals. Does anyone know anything about Lake View Motors in Woodstock? Thanks for your help.

Ga car mart is a scam indeed. i bought a car from them - clean carfax, attractive price and all. Guess what- i got it checked and it had unibody apron damage repaired. Most of their cars are unibody damage. They only pick up cars with clean carfax reports but with damages, repair them and then under cut others. They are related to other dealership here like Atlanta Used cars, atlanta ultra cars, ga auto mall etc. In all i found 9 dealerships which all belong to the same family.And guess what-all are muslims(iran, pakistan etc..) which hurts even more, one side we aer fighting a war against them and on the other getting ripped by them in our own homeland...They cannot even earn their living honestly. Carfax is totally useless too- they do not even honor their buyback warranty.

I agree, these guys put nothing into these cars, no tires, etc.... You can go to another dealer and pay more for the new car feel, I myself put tires on the van, cleaned it, waxed and drove it. Now for about 18,000 miles. I don't know if they are shady or not, all I know is that I got the best price on my van in 4 states. Even if the tranny or the engine has a problem I am still far far ahead. The reason I by Honda is for the quality and a Honda sold by these guys has the same engineering as one sold down the streat. Most people are stupid and need the car salesman to push and conjole and make them think they are getting a good deal. Like talking payments instead of price, like giving them high interest rates and giving them nothing for their trade-in while showing on paper, "They got a good deal". It kills me when they play the race card, sure because foriegn used car dealers are more crooked than american used car dealers. Hey you lemmings they are used car dealers, I expect them to lie. I think these guys are giving you the best deal possible, they sold a bunch of cars the day I was there and if this is all the *itching and whining they get I say they are doing a good job. I checked the BBB before buying and they have 2 complaints, 2 in the thousands of cars they sell 2, you people make me sick.

Thanks for your advice... "autocheck". I found a X5 for a GOOD price of course at Atlanta Ultra Cars. It had the Carfax report listed, whiched seemed to be good. Ran an autocheck only to find out it was purched from an auto auction with frame damaged listed at the auction! BEWARE BUYERS... If if looks too good to be true... IT JUST MIGHT BE!

I highly recommend do check history of the vehicle from " Autocheck.com " and also do pre-sale inspection before you buy from any dealer. Carfax is made for dealers to persuade innocent customers. Not all accidents are reported by carfax but carfax makes a hell of a business at the expense of dealers and innocent customers. Remember not all accidents are reported in "Carfax".

Do not buy from these people. They have several names they go under. The new on is Atlanta Auto Lease. They are scam artist. They know they are buying cars with unibody damage and fixing them. They are also known as Atlanta Used Cars. BEWARE!!!!

We drove down to Alpharetta to Georgia Import Autos on Atlanta Highway last Wednesday. Looked at the 2007 Honda Civic EX with Navigation we'd seen on the Internet. It had 51,200 miles and was very clean, drove great. Checked it on AutoCheck and it has clean record.
Bought it paying in full. Selling price was under $11,000 and I haven't seen a similar Civic on Ebay for that low price.
Check out that dealership. Moriz is a nice guy.

It seems a bit much to say that all the auto companies in any section of Georgia owned by people from Pakistan anywhere in Middle East are crooked. How do you arrive at such a notion?

The 2007 Civic EX we bought from Georgia Import Autos in Alpharetta is a fine car which checked out clean in person and on Autocheck. They deal mainly in pre-owned Honda and Lexus cars and they do buy at auction like most used car dealers.

Please do not judge all Pakistanis or other Middle Easterners just because you may have met one bad one. If you met a "crooked native Georgian salesman at a car dealership would you conclude that all native Georgia car salesmen are crooked? Of course not.

You can get the VIN number, run a AutoCheck.com check on the car, test drive it, have a body shop and/or mechanic look at it. All that is at your expense, of course, but it is a small amount of money when you want to be sure you have a good and dependable car.
I expect years of good service from this '07 Civic.

I checked out some Lexus and infiniti models at Alpha Cars. I'm going back tomorrow to test drive and possibly buy one. Thank you all for this pertinent info...I will use it all wisely. On the other hand, I'm saddened by the racism, judging and profiling in these messages. The used car biz is one of the most shady and untruthful biz there is...REGARDLESS of ethnicity, race, gender or whatever. Leave your ignorant race comments out of the real issue here and grow up...open your eyes. You've all probably been screwed over just as bad or worse by bad business with someone of your own ethnicity/heritage/background. God bless America and give us wisdom...PLEASE!!!:)

PURCHASED A USED CAR FROM GA CAR MART AND WAS TOLD IT HAD NEVER BEEN WRECKED AND WAS STILL UNDER FACTORY WARRANTY. CARFAX DID NOT DISCLOSE WHAT AUTOCHEK DID! "ANNOUNCED AT AUCTION AS FRAME & UNIBODY DAMAMGE"
I WAS ALSO TOLD TO WAIT UNTIL THE TITLE WAS IN MY NAME TO TAKE THE CAR TO LEXUS DEALERSHIP TO REPLACE THE WORN ROTORS THAT I REQUESTED GA CAR MART TO REPLACE. HE SAID THE REASON TO WAIT WAS BECAUSE LEXUS WOULD NOT WANT TO HONOR WARRANTY IF THEY KNEW IT WAS FROM A USED CAR LOT. COME TO FIND OUT, IT DOES NOT COVER ROTORS ANYWAY!

Purchased a 2005 Honda Odyssey EXL w/41,000 in October 2008 on Ebay at Atlanta Ultra Cars in Roswell. I ran autocheck, the score came back a 95. It was a lease vehicle from FL. I took it to a mechanic, the van was in excellent condition, no frame damage, uni body damage, brake pads were new, decent set of tires. The van did have minor scratches but want do you expect for 2005. I have been on several trips with this van, no problems. The salesmen Serg and Kash were very helpful and professional. My experience with this company was exceptional. I saved thousands of dollars and I got a great van.
I believe there are too many people sitting on the sidelines complaining and putting down the work of others. These people often put down anything that anyone else does. In fact I believe they are biased.

Ran Carfax, ran autocheck, and had carcheckers2000 do the inspection. Carfax and autocheck were clean. Carcheckers found indications of an accident causing cosmetic damage but nothing structural. Carcheckers also noticed that the airbag light was on. Alpha Cars took the car to the local mazda dealer and had the problem corrected, under warranty--i have the receipt. Car priced very well. Bought it. Do your due diligence and remember that no one is forcing you to buy the car, and you can wait for the right car.
Also looked at a Toyota Corolla advertised by Roswell Infiniti. Carfax showed service by Aamco in April 08. Roswell Infiniti is either unwilling or unable to find out what kind of service Aamco did. If it was an oil change, I'd have considered the car. If it was transmission, i'd be very concerned. But since Roswell Infiniti couldn't help, I didn't buy their car. My choice. Your choice, too.

I purchased a car from Atlanta Used Car a.k.a ATLANTA UC located on Alpharetta Hwy. It was even worst, the car didn't have AIRBAGS in it and they sold it to me as a certified car. I am going to take them to court as they endangered my life. I later on found out this blog. Check out this link:

I think it's funny how all of the Lexus vehicles are missing their shift knobs on the "ultra cars" website, navigation screens are scratched and hazy, etc. C'mon, half of the vehicles look like Edward Scissorhands was the previous owner. Sounds like these guys are crooks, but, use common sense and do your homework...geez.
The shift knobs are removed as people will come to the lot and steal them from the cars. I thought the same thing, that I would need to purchase the shift knob. But it was provided with the keys etc.
