I have bought several cars from there. You absolutely get what you pay for! I got lucky and bought a rust bucket pick up for 900 and it lasted over a year. The LaFaves are decent people and if they can make things right they will. I also had some experience with LaVictoire down near Rutland, they advertize in the times of ti a lot and have a bunch of really good deals.

The BEST route to go instead of those buy here pay here places is to find a place that has Credit Acceptance corp auto loans. Anyone with a job can finance a really decent car or truck. The interest is high for bad credit people but thats to be expected. I got one from Evia motors across from the Avation Mall entrance that was really good. It lasted until I traded it in on a newer car. The good thing about it was that my credit was terrible before and it helped restore it enough so i could get a normal car loan at a regular dealership.

I think Edwards in whitehall has that loan as well as Evia, another place well worth checking out is All Star Chevy in Albany, if you can find something you like and qualify for, they will drive the thing right to your door and you can do the paperwork at home. Good luck Raydene. Hope it helps!

I had a relative you bought 2 cars there.....pieces of junk. Had to dump money into them cause did not have money to buy another one....at that point. Would never deal with them again....they sell cars all the time that will not pass inspection.....death traps. They only care about getting your money....do NOT care about helping customer.......

I have been buying vehicles from Vergennes Auto for some time. I have had a few problems with cars but nothing that is real major. Exhaust, tires, things like that. But most of the time I had checked them out and knew what to expect. I think people believe that they are going to get new cars at used car prices. I look cars over pretty good. If you buy a car with the check engine light on, that's your issue. Cars there are bought " as is, no warranty." If you sign that its your responsibility. They allow you to take them to a mechanic if you want to as well. They also have a warranty that you can by for some things that is not real expensive. It is good for major problems. Ask them I think that people go buy cars without checking them out thorouly. If it is making all kinds of noises, walk away. Check, check, check. Also, if a car has high milegage and lots of them do, you can expect problems. It's not always something that they can predict. So, I guess my experience is a little different than most. Once again, I have problably bought 10 or more vehicles for them and most of them I have driven many miles and sold for almost what I paid for them. I bought one pick up there that had a cracked frame. I went to get it inspected and it did not pass. I called Scott, the owner and he gave me a replacement. But that has to do with being a good customer. My advice is to be sure that you test drive, look it all over good, don't by if you know it has problems and if you are inexperienced take someone with you. I am a happy customer and have always been treated fairly, but that is just my experience. And they have always topped off the fuids for me.

Unless of course they lie about they reason behind it...

Not every problem presents itself in a test drive.

When you sell a vehicle that requires $1000 worth of work to be worth what you are selling it for, you're being dishonest. I'm not saying every vehicle should be flawless, but it's condition should be reflected by it's price.

Lavictorie seems to have really good deals. I'd assume the quality is on par with Vergennes auto, but the cars are being sold for what they are actually worth.

Evia looks really decent.

Absolute auto credit in Glens Falls and Johnstown seems decent as well.

If Hometown has a no/poor credit load offering, I'd say they would be the best bet in the area. Never heard a bad thing about them. They just "upgraded" their website, so looking at their inventory is somewhat difficult.

i bought a car from hometown and am still paying on it. it was a problem car from the beginning and every time i told them something wasn't right with it they tell me bring it down they keep it for a couple days and tell me to pick it up and still wasn't fixed. then one day i am driving down the road and the car catches on fire and i am car less. they also told me i had gap insurance which i don't and told the bank i bought a different type of vehicle so i would get approved for the loan then i get a big run around in the end. i would suggest going any wheres but there.

maybe if you had read your contract more thoroughly, you wouldn't be in the pickle you are in and now that I know who you are, what do you expect? You beat the everlovin' shit out of that car, green chevy wasn't it? and expected it to not break? You're the one that had the car burn up in front of Port Henry Service this summer?

Do NOT go to Vergennes Auto they will rip you off any possible way that they can! I know a few people that have bought cars there and every single one was horrible. They shouldnt even be able to run a business. No that lemon law thing can not be used in Vermont unless its brand new and it does not matter if you live in New York because you still bought that car in Vermont. I would walk before I gave them a penny of my money because I know I would only be getting riped off!!!

Hubby did.

WORSE PIECE OF CRAP EVER OWNED.

And that was even AFTER the repairs were made.

We ended up junking it after all.

I would say this......

If you are a school-trained mechanic willing to do your on work, the price is right, then by all means, go for it.

Otherwise.......

DON'T!!!!!!!!

from what I have seen of the cars in the old Horton Strong building, they're rebuilt wrecks. If you'll direct your attention to the silver Chevrolet Cavalier, look under the rear bumper. You will see where the rear of the car was driven into trunk compartment, violently. Some new paint, new rear fascia and voila!$3000 please.

if you're going to buy a car, ANY car, it's always in your best interest to EDUCATE yourself on the model and any issues it is prone to. Also, learn to look for worn parts that can add up to huge repairs later on down the road. Also, on the flip side of that, no used car is going to be showroom perfect, but there IS a limit to what a customer should be expected to deal with.
