Hey to all of you who think you have gotten a bum deal ?
The real deal was :  YOU DID NOT DO YOUR HOME-WORK.
AFTER SO MANY MILES,  certain things go out and some last longer so, take the 65,000 part x 2 to the miles and that part will or should be going out..So as a women I know that around 100,000 miles the heater core would be going out!  On a frozen snow day with a whiney B ---- in my vehicle , ow  it's cold ( no %$#$), shut up ms. whinny or you can walk...I never saw her driving...
'
So when you purchase a vehicle with so much milage on i t- YOU FIX or you have a AWSOME MECHANIC.  
COMING  home from a auction my personal vehicle broke down my mechanic is ahead of me-nothing he can fix on the road so to my rescue is SPEEDS towing-They are very nice, respectful, and I feel for them with some of their customers but,  SO go SpEEDS Towing and AUTIONS !

What a great way to buy a vehicle.  It's fun to go to an auction and see all of the possibilities.  So many to choose from.

I think This is the best place to go and find a "cheap" car, and paying a few dollars more the car has warranty, yes warranty!! is impossible to believe that at auction those cars has warranty, also I bought a Honda Pilot 2005 and I am still  driving on Portland,  thanks Speed's Auction for your Business!!

First off, the other guy that reviewed and gave 1 star is a dumbass, and you can't blame a company for your lack of knowledge/common sense(aka stupidity). An auction is an auction; it's hit or miss with the cars and your own responsibility to carefully look over any car you're interested in before bidding. I have a dealer's license and buy many cars from Speed's to fix up and resell. FIX, then sell, because they do not fix anything, they just sell. I've gotten some cars that were really good deals and some that I lost money on, but that's the way it works. I buy 10-15 cars a month and have never had a problem with them. Some of the employees are not very friendly, but I can't really blame them because I've heard the steady complaining they have to endure from buyers who didn't know what they're doing.

So, if you know how to properly look over a car(basic mechanic skills) or have someone you can bring along who has the know how, this is a great place to buy a cheap car. If you have no car knowledge, stick to a dealership.

I am disgusted with myself for ever going through them. I most certainly will not ever recommend them to anyone. I feel I was ripped off. You think going through an auto auction you're getting a good deal, however; when the good deal goes sour you think oh well that is just luck of the draw. WRONG!

I purchased a 99 Ford Taurus Wagon, with 94,000 miles on it. It had some minor repairs that needed attention, no biggie I thought. Little did I know that those minor repairs are leading to a lot of bigger repairs. I have had nothing but bad thing after bad thing go wrong with my car since I bought it from them. I have not even gotten to drive it long due to the issues.

I don't care what they say, there is no way a cars water pump, air conditioner pump, and alternator go out after 94,000 miles on it. There's no way both left front and left rear door lock actuators go out at the same time either, unless they took them off and slapped on some bad ones; that would only get me a couple hundred miles down the road, which is exactly what happened.

I got a couple hundred miles in when the car started smoking ans those issues above went bad. I spoke with a mechanic who was with Ford for 18 years, and he even said there's no way that all those things could happen, unless there was foul play involved.

I know there's nothing I can do about this, so I decided to rate this place with the poorest review ever and hopefully scare some people away from ever going through them.

PLEASE PLEASE don't go through the auction. If you do, find a loyal mechanic and get his opinion on the vehicle before you do go through with trying to bid on a car. They give you almost a week to review the cars online to give you an idea of what they have. I don't know that you can go there and look at them personally, but its worth a phone call to check if you can, that way you can be better prepared for what is to happen.

I hope you do decide to go somewhere else. I don't have any recommendations. This isn't a ploy to get you to go through somewhere else for someone else's auction., I was just wronged, and feel like this is something I can do to get the point across. I only wish I could prove they did what they did. I hope you all get t the point.
