Comment from Jeff S. of RK Motors Charlotte  
Business Manager
3/19/2015 *  Once again, RKMC is under attack from those who wish to use a platform like this to get attention and validation for their own gain. Read our reviews on the second page (which Yelp suppresses) and visit our website to see what our customers really have to say about us, rkmotorscharlotte.com/co ... Read less

REALLY? Nobody is using, especially me in this platform to get attention or validation...period. What I am trying to do is warn people about RKM Charlotte do not purchase a car on Ebay or site unseen.

As for you comment on visiting your website to see what customers says, RKM will not allow customers who got screwed to post reviews.

Bottom line people....be very careful with this company. DO NOT buy a car site unseen basing your purchase decision off their representation.

Got my car back from the hot rod shop here in Denver. The shop fixed everything that was not revealed to me during my dealings with RK Motors. The list of things fixed was a rebuilt carb, add a return line to fuel system, boost regulated fuel pressure regulator, fixed leaking radiator line, fixed trans leak, fixed the rear main seal oil leak, speedometer/odometer now working, the BOV and waste gates were not working, missing parts and vacuum lines were never hooked up...meaning the turbos were never working.  All that has been replaced and fixed. Transmission now goes into 1st and 2nd gear, left driver window regulator fixed, spark plugs were gapped at 60 thousands, new starter. The shop discovered the MSD programmable computer tune was set at default mode...meaning no tune was ever loaded and that has now been fixed. The computer never had a MAP sensor installed either. Does anyone really believe this car was dyno tuned at their Rousch/Yates facility as they told me it was? Total repair bill.....$5600.00....Thank you RK Motors?

Love the car now....

Rude, rude, rude.  Don't even bother contacting this company.  Particularly Joe Carroll.  They will give you the 10th degree if you aren't prepared to pay their very optimistic prices.  Make any mention of negotiation a lower price and they will break out sarcasm, insults, you name it.  Overall a shocking experience for a company trying to sell 6 and 7 figure cars.

Knowledgeable sales staff with an extensive inventory. Gorgeous classic cars! Purchased a 70' Chevelle 454 and couldn't be happier with the overall experience. Fully recommend this place for any looking to get into classic cars.

I was a first time, out of state, buyer from RK Frank Carroll managed the sales process.Bottom line, get a certified mechanic to inspect the car. You owe it to yourself, the family and friends that might drive in the car. Their job is to sell cars. Safe or not...mine was not. I'm now in deep...$2500 in repairs and most likely a new engine. Completely disappointed. Buyer beware... Literally.

I purchased a 1969 pro Street Mustang from Frank at RK Motors They advertised it as a All ALUMINUM Block. It is Actually a STEEL Block Also they said it had LEATHER Seats They are Vinyl. I will update everyone with the outcome. They don't return email or phone calls. I filed a complaint with the better business Bureau. If that does not work i will have to retain my Attorney.
