This place is full of LIES, LIES & MORE LIES!
I'd been to this dealership before and decided to come back to look around at the new cars they just brought into the lot. A green, two door Honda Accord EX catches my eye. A sales lady name Sandra comes and to greet me.

LIE #1: She gives me the keys and start the car, and it wouldnt stay started. Started up just fine multiple times but the car just wouldnt idle and would cut off. She tells me its the battery and would have her mechanics look at it. Said it would be ready for a test drive later that day. I tell her its not a battery problem if the car starts up and all the electronics are working fine. (I figured she's just a sales lady and knew nothing about mechanics. No big deal) She also tells me that they provide a full car report through not Carfax, but Autocredit. She also agreed to match a price to a similar car I told her I was thinking about at a different dealership. So I agreed to come back the next day.

LIE#2: I come back to test drive the car and she continues to tell me the car had a battery issue. She said one of the connectors were loose on the battery and they just needed to tighten it. The car started and drove just fine, and I had a mechanic take a quick look. He liked the car for the said price.

LIE#3: So I'm prepared to buy the car. Ready to sign the paper work.. when I remembered that I almost forgot to ask her for the vehicle history. (The "AutoCheck" that she told me would be provided.) She starts acting iffy. First she pretends to look for it. Then she walks out of the office. All of a sudden her manager walks in and feeds me some bullshit about how its a trade-in and it costs them too much to get Carfax or vehicle history on their cars. Dont forget that I was already told a vehicle history would be provided. I went ahead and spend 30 bucks to get a report on the car myself. I look to the last report and turns out the car was previously STOLEN! Still this was not a complete deal breaker, but I decided to go home with the vin number to have this stolen record more checked out.

LIE#4: All of a sudden Sandra calls me out the blue and feeds me more BS about the car being stolen. She says a couple weeks ago, a few cars were stolen out the lot and had been recovered. Two problems here... 1) According to the report, the car was stolen and recovered well over a year ago...not a couple weeks ago. 2) I had been to this lot a week ago and knew that this car wasn't there at the time.... That's the whole reason I was looking at it.

LIE#5: I ask her about the inspection sticker and she tells me that its good and ready to go. Again she calls back and tells me that its actually expired and that they would go get it inspected real quick. (The sticker had expired over 8 months ago). She calls back again an hr later and tells me that all the computers were down at the shop and they couldn't get it inspected until the next day. I finally tell her that I'm fed up with all the lies and BS, and that I was no longer interested. I drove by the lot a week later and noticed the car was still there with the same expired sticker on the window. Im betting the car wouldnt pass inspection and if I didnt ask about the sticker they would of sold it to me with the expired one.

I'm sure I dodged a bullet and saved a lot of money and headaches. I'm sure the care being stolen had something to do with it not being able to idle. I bet she took it to the back real quick to patch it up. This business if full of lies and even the management isn't afraid to say whatever it takes to sell cars and rob you for your money. Im sure they have some good cars on the lot but, since it's a "As is/ No Warranty" type of place, I just wouldn't take the risk. There are plenty of other dealerships in the area with more honest employees and management.
