Reviews on Lake City Auto Sales

This place has nothing to do with selling cars. This is some sort of money laundering operation. I stopped by to take a look at the certain car they are advertising on Internet for believe it or not past 9-10 months.They gradually reduced the price eight thousand and still can't sell it. Now I know why. I stood by the car I was interested in for a good 10-15 minutes before the person "working" there even looked at me. I had to ask if I could see the interior of the car and maybe start it. The guy acted like I was asking him to donate the kidney.
I asked for the Carfax and he would let me see it only out of his hand while waving it around !? If you want to be disrespected and have your intelligence insulted than this is the place to go otherwise go to the real, legitimate car dealership.
To this day I can't believe place like that exists let alone could stay in "business". Don't buy those fake 5 star reviews written by the same people running that chop-shop. They used to be Casablanca Auto Sales and changed the name into Lake City Auto Sales. Look it up.

Not really sure where to start this review, but here goes. I drove up from Oregon to hit some lots for a used car. Stopped by Lake City Auto Sales after seeing a 2005 B7 style Audi A4 with the 3.2l engine and auto trans with 130k miles for $6995. The listing on their website painted a picture of a flawless silver gem, and indeed upon arrival I found the vehicle and was impressed with the cosmetic condition of the car. During the test drive the tiptronic mode in the trans was great but I was a bit concerned by the hesitation while it was in full automatic. Now for the history lesson, read the carfax report provided by the dealer. The car had a wreck listed no frame damage. But after 2010 the car has yet to pass an emissions test. Now for my due diligence, told the salesman (Simo), before I make an offer I want have it inspected with a compression test completed. He offered to have his mechanic perform the compression test and allow me to watch the test so I could verify the results they got. He offered this as a way "to save me money". Sounded like a nice thing to offer, here's the problem...his mechanic was doing a Google search on "how to perform a compression test". At that point I just told Simo I'd rather have an independent shop perform the test with the full inspection. Fast forward 3 hours....inspection done, a ticking time bomb dressed up as a gorgeous silver B7 A4. Passenger side cylinder bank compression is pushing the limits of tolerance for the engine, driver side compression has a 10+ psi variance between the 3 cylinders in that bank, it is throwing cam shaft sensor codes, timing cover is leaking copious amounts of fluid, and the valve cover is leaking. Now, a timing chain, usually not to big of a job, for this car the transmission has to be dropped to do that work. The minimum quote to complete the work was $3k. I returned the A4 to Simo and informed him about the findings of the report. He offered to only charge me $1k to change the timing chain. Stay with me now, he held firm on the vehicles price and then tried to convince me to buy it and charge me to let his mechanic do the timing chain work, you remember the one that was using Google to learn how to perform a compression check. I politely told them there was nothing short of selling the car at half the asking price that would convince me to buy it. They billed this car as in "excellent condition", I couldn't find any way to bring this car up to a "rough condition" mechanically. One last thing, as I was walking out, his partner was saying we'll just replace the timing chain and sell it for $10k. Yeah guys, good luck with that.

It is not often that you can say you had a pleasurable time buying a used car. Let me say this place was a breath of fresh air. Simo the owner was more than helpful. He locked up the shop and ran all over town with us to finish our loan paperwork and DMV needs. The place is small and you will drive right past it if you are not watching. Do yourself a favor and see Simo the next time you are in need of a quality automobile. I purchased a gently used 2004 Toyota Prius and so far I am very happy.
