Just bought my Benz S550 there..and the whole experience we great. From the moment I got there they treated me like family. I don't have good credit and with only 1000.00 down they got me approved and financed with a bank. The car has a clean car fax report. Its rides great. Would highly recommend them to anyone.

Saw an ad for a 2011 gti for 13,895. I come in and the manager tells me that he put that price to bring people in.  Biggest waste of time.

With it being in an accident, they offered an out the door price of over 17k. Anyone can find better deals than this crap.

If you're reading this, I give it like another year till you're out of business Prado Auto sales. Good luck.

I have been looking for weeks for a certain vehicle.  I saw that Prado had one listed on both their website, and on Craigslist.  Since their website said "By Appointment Only," I immediately went online and asked for an appointment to see the car the next day.  I received a phone call within a couple of hours confirming my appointment.

The next day, before leaving my house for the appointment, I checked both their website and Craigslist and saw that the vehicle was still being advertised.

When I arrived for my appointment, I was told that they had sold the vehicle last night.  Now I understand that these things happen, but since they had my phone number they could have called me and let me know.  Instead, I drove the 45 minutes to their location expecting to see the vehicle.  What a waste of time.  And the worse part?  They never apologized for not calling me, nor for my inconvenience.  

After my 45 minute drive home, I checked and it's still listed as available and in stock on both their website and Craigslist.  Obviously these folks aren't too skilled at customer service.  I'll make sure to avoid them at all costs in the future.

In February 2012, we Purchased a 2003 Black BMW X5 SUV). We gave $8k down payment ($4k at signing, $4k prior to picking up vehicle). We signed all papers associated with purchase & dealership provided us with a document stating that our contract had been assigned to Westlake Financial Services. The document contained information on monthly payments; how much, where and when to start sending payments. The dealership was not able to give us the vehicle when we gave them the initial $4K because, according to them, they needed to send the car to be certified to BMW before the lender was able to approve loan.  A few weeks went by and we called the dealership on several occasions since we did not hear from them regarding the vehicle; on several occasions Willie (manager) informed us that the car was not ready because they were still waiting on the BMW certification.

We picked up the car once they told us everything was completed and we were approved by the lender. As instructed by them & the documentation they provided us, we began making our monthly payments of $506.77. After sending the first 4 monthly payments to lender, they sent us a check back for all 4 months. We then contacted Westlake to see why we received the check. They told us we did not have a loan with them. We never received a denial letter from them either.  We immediately contacted Dealer to see what was going on and spoke to Henry (finance dept). He apologized & told me not to worry. He asked me to be patient and wait. He stated that the bank needed the certification from BMW in order to approve the loan & that they were working on it. We agreed that he would contact us once they cleared everything. After not hearing from anybody, we went to the dealership to see what was going on. We asked for Henry & Willie but they were both tied up. After waiting for a while in their showroom, we approached Willie and insisted that he would tell us what was going on. He brushed us off, reminded us he was busy, & told us that he was still waiting for the BMW certification to be provided to the lender & that he would contact us once everything was completed.

While the vehicle was in our possession, it broke down pretty frequently leading us to believe that the car was not a certifiable car as the dealership suggested when they sold it to us and that the car's mileage had been tampered with; a car with 60K miles should not be having the mechanical issues we have had with the car. As a result we ended up spending a considerable amount of money in repairs (front CV Joints, alternator, fuel injectors). Also found that the car had been in a bad accident and the rear frame of the car was bent (dealership never disclosed this information).  

We didn't hear back from the dealership until July 10th 2013 when the new manager, Rame Caraguai, finally contacted us and said he finally had everything ready. We asked him to meet with us in our office later that afternoon. He brought an unsigned new contract along with an approval from Westlake Financial Services from an application they had just submitted on July 1st, 2013. Nobody ever contacted me to inform me that my credit was going to be ran again or asking me for approval to run my credit again 1 1/2 years after I applied for the loan. We refused to sign since the terms of the contract were not the same as we previously signed, and the contract only showed a down payment of $7K instead of the $8K we gave them.  The manager gave us an ultimatum as he formed a scene and yelled at us in the middle of our workplace. He threatened that he would repossess the care if we did not sign the new contract.  We told him we were willing to return them the car if they gave us the $8K down payment we gave them since we did not agree on the new terms of the sale, and since we felt like they misled us by knowingly selling us a car that had a lot of mechanical issues while all along telling us that it was a BMW certified vehicle.

Needless to say, we would not recommend them to our worst enemy... we filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau, the Florida Dept. of Highway Safety & Motor Vehicles... will expose them through every social media avenue possible so that they do not continue to do business this way... and of course, we have begun steps to file suit.
