"My son purchased a 2012 Toyota Camry from
last Tuesday evening. He is a Marine, and on leave. One of the chief reasons we did this was their "5 day money" back guarantee". We felt that he couldn't go wrong since he could return it should it not be mechanically sound. On Wednesday morning at 8 a.m., my son was sitting at our mechanic business. Within 20 seconds, our mechanic informed my son that the car had been wrecked. There was clearly debris in the paint, and there were indicators all over the car that it had been wrecked. Within 2 hours, we were at
for his "money back". This is when the manager explained to us that the buyer is often aware that the car has been wrecked even if it isn't on the CarFax. And the buyer may not disclose that information to the person doing the inspection. Given our mechanic had spotted the problems so quickly, we have to question the caliber of people doing their inspections. The high pressure push was on to get us to take another car from them. Previous rental cars, fleet cars, and cars from northern states. No thank you. Money back, please? My son and I headed back to the window. He had given $2000 cash as his down payment. He doesn't make a lot of money as a Marine. This was his only cash. And his line of credit was tied up with the loan on a car he already returned. So, imagine our surprise when we were informed that he would received his check in 10-14 days? How did a 5 day money back guarantee become 10-14 days? After arguing with the lady, and her phone call to corporate (where no one answered), we left and went home and called our lawyer. Thanks to our attorney, we managed to get my son's money the following day. It seemed that the wait of 10-14 days came as a surprise to the people at corporate. How many people like us have been forced to sit without a car? Or accept another car they didn't really want because their money was tied up at
? Deception about the car. Deception about their guarantee. We headed to
Toyota. Buyer beware. don't buy at
unless you have spare funds, and a great mechanic to go over that car with a fine tooth comb. Oh, and a good lawyer.

Whether purchasing a car – new or old – ask yourself and the dealer some specific questions to make sure you’re getting the car that best fits your needs. (Photo courtesy of Angie’s List member Edward M.)

Buying a car

You must take certain steps when buying a car to protect yourself. Whether you buy a new or used car, there are common procedures which will help you avoid a lemon and maximize your investment.

Avoiding dishonest car dealers can be just as hard as finding a car to buy. Here are three scams that are telltale signs of an unethical salesperson.

The cost of a car is more than the sticker price. Extra fees add up at the end. (Photo contributed by Angie's List member Danielle J., of Worthington, Ohio)

When you're buying a used car, you'll end up paying more than the sticker price. Automotive experts discuss some of the additional fees to expect.

Sounds like your biggest problem will be narrowing your list to a limited number of models, and deciding what brand names you are willing to consider to narrow the field.

You can search for websites blogging complaints for each model you are considering to see how they rate with users, and you can also go to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website at     www.nhtsa.gov     to see how many recalls there have been on a specific model and year.

Most dealers these days have websites with their listed prices for new and used cars that you can browse to get an idea of available listed prices.

I would also recommend that you check out the used car values (free) for models you might be interested in on    www.edmunds.com    and on Kelley Blue Book  -  www.kbb.com

Those 2 sources will give you a lot of negotiating power, because they list what the dealer pays the manufacturer on new cars, shows what people have been paying for each vehicle model and model year, and shows used valuations also. There are undoubtedly other such sources also - these are just the ones I have used and seem to be the best known.

Stay away from this decietful dealer. First I dealt with a pleasant salesman but beware, this is not who actually sells you the car. They are there as the Vana White of the sale. They are there just to smile and present the car to you. From there you are railroaded to a sales manager who tries to sell you things you don't need and
Carmichael Auto Sales Provider Name Locked
to you.Then you go to a finance guy who tries to pressure you into an extended warranty and acts angry if you don't want it. Post sale they are rude and don't care about you from the sales mananager to the general manager. Lesson learned. I will never buy a car from them again or any service. I do not trust them at all. Instead I will use a buying service (there are many and they will all net fair results to prevent you from over paying or getting ripped off.) There are online buying services like
Carmichael Auto Sales Provider Name Locked
,True Car,Consumer Reports,
Carmichael Auto Sales Provider Name Locked
Blue book and many more. There are car broker services like Costco or credit union fleet buying services. ANY of them will net you better results. Try several and see who finds you the best deal, you do not have to commit unless they find you the actual car you want at the actual price that you agree to. When you decide that you want to commit, then the dealer pays the fee to the service. Had I used any of these I would have saved about $3,000.00 and not gotten talked into unnecessary services in addition.(The sales manager lied and said that was the rock bottom price, any lower and he'd
Carmichael Auto Sales Provider Name Locked
money. After checking these services(too late for me, maybe I can save you) I found out that many many dealerships were BEGGING to sell me the identical car for around $2,500-$3,000 less.
Back to the clear coat they applied to the car for $900.00, I cannot tell any difference and it definitely was a lie that it makes rain sheet away like RainX. It does not. In adition they suggested I have it applied to the interior which darkened it's color(which I hated). They were able to remove most but not all of it inside. In addition
Carmichael Auto Sales Provider Name Locked
Corp stated to me that they do not reccommend applying any coating to the interior of their cars. As stated above my neighbor had problems with them and said he wished he had known I was going to go there. He would have told me not to ever deal with them. As it stands I am afraid to even have an oil change with them.

The service manager wanted to schedule me a week later, but I needed the vehicle in the middle of the week for a day trip and waiting a week for brake repair wasn't going to work for me. Then one of their service technicians, (a young man named

) came out from the back of the shop and said he could take a look at my car right then. The service manager seemed perturbed by his suggestion, but
Carmichael Auto Sales Provider Name Locked
insisted. He took my car into the service garage and replaced the pads, shoes, refilled the brake fluid, etc. The brake light no longer lit and the brakes worked great after. I might not score the service manager all that high, but

Nick Costoff was my sales person at
Carmichael Auto Sales Provider Name Locked
in Alliance. I was very impressed with this young man. He first asked me what I was looking for in a car - features, gas mileage, body style that I like, colors that I liked, did I want a sun roof or not...got to know me and what I wanted in a car. He showed me a few cars, new and used, never tiring of my asking questions about them. When I decided that I wanted a new car he showed me one that I fell in love with, a black 200 with a moon roof and sport package! He took the time to go over my features on my car and was very informative about all of them. My navigation voice was very low and he showed me how to turn up the volume, which was nice so that I could hear my directions. He also made sure that I was very comfortable with my buying experience by taking the time to explain payments and such - he wanted to get me the best payment that he could. The purchase was done in a timely manner and Mr. Costoff was sure to take care of my every need. I will be back and I highly recommend Mr. Costoff!

These people are really weasels. Took 2005 Ford Escape in for a problem. Told them very specifically that the car had almost 200k miles on it and we didn't want to put a lot of money into it. What imbeciles - they charged us $3000 and never fixed the original problem. Brought it back because they didn;t fix the orogianl probelm and they charged us another $800. I would never buy from them or use them. How they they get away with claiming to be #1 in service is beyond comprehension. Really borders on criminal the way the mislead and gouge their customers. They should be investigated.

We bought 2014 Dodge Ram 1500. However after first oil change oil leak noticed this is a garage kept truck. The service person told us it was a oil filter problem and Dodge did not have a fix for it yet so they attempt to tighten it again and after get truck back again it shows leakage. Took truck back second time and they assured me the problem was fixed. They said they put a filter converter on. This time they kept the truck for 1 week and after truck back it started leaking again and this time worse. So took to Ford Dealer to check because by this time I didn't trust them they said was still leaking and it was coming from around the oil filter I went straight to the dodge dealership after this. After I finally got to go back where the mechanic check at
Carmichael Auto Sales Provider Name Locked
and seen leak the mechanic said it didn't even have the right filter on the truck. After they spoke with me and reassured me the problem would be fixed and that a friend of my husband's would drive the truck to make sure no leakage before returned to us then I was in great hope the problem would be resolved. This is where it gets worse I am going to pick up dog at pet groomer my truck was left at dealership on Wednesday this is Friday when I go to pick up dog at groomer at 4:45pm and behold on my way home there sits my truck at the package store and I stop as to go in and retrieve my keys and out walks this man I do not recognize with a case of beer and a bottle in a brown bag I sit there in disbelief and start to get out but trying not to let dog out car he drives off I follow him to his residence and ask who he is and why driving my truck he replies I was told to and I then say only my husband friend suppost to drive truck and then tell him go straight to dealership and I want my keys. I then follow him to dealership and he hands keys someone else I pull up to see who. The man come to car and I ask him same why he drive my truck he says other guy not a mechanic and I refute that doesn't take a mechanic to see a leak. I ask who he is? He says he is the service manager. He then ask me if I want my keys back and I respond yes he toss my keys and stomp back to his car. I motion at him and he stands back up and I ask him does he even know why I am so mad he says yes and I go on to tell him about where the mechanic was and he says he can take the truck anywhere they want to. I had only seen this person one other time and did not recognize him till after I ask who he was so how did he know me and remember he toss the keys to me without really knowing who I was. After all this guess what truck still leaking oil I contact Dodge the main company and find another Dealer to take my truck to and they have the problem fixed the first time and explain the problem was only that the other dealership was to lazy to clean the oil up from the frame after changed the oil and the leak I was seeing was from the left over oil dripping from the frame. However the second time as you see in the first part of this letter
Carmichael Auto Sales Provider Name Locked
admit they applied the wrong filter. Have ask for my papers from last service stated they would mail them to me still have not received and they did not put any information in the computer for the other dealership to see either. Beware do not buy from this dealership I feel they are not trust worthy and since this have spoken to other people in the community that believe the same. They are very nice until they have sold you the vehicle but then when you have to deal with the service department it is a disaster.

I made an appointment with
Carmichael Auto Sales Provider Name Locked
to check the level of my mobile home. The appointment was set for 10:00am. They actually showed up about 5 minutes early. They set up their equipment, and checked the corners and floor of my home. All thru the process the technician explained the process and what he was doing. He took the time to show me the bubble, and how to determine if the home was out of level, and how much they would have to raise or re-fit the blocks to make the home level. Then they tightened the tie down straps, made sure my doors opened and closed properly, and that my home was completely level. The whole process took about 2 hours from start to finish and the guys were very professional.

If you are looking for a GREAT place to buy a used car, I strongly suggest this place! After dealing with car dealerships and other places for a used Honda Civic, we were frustrated as heck! Prices were super high, we were getting ripped off!
We somehow stumbled upon these guys and wow...if you want a low mileage Honda, Toyota, or Subaru...go there!!
They took two of our complete junk cars and gave us 1300 for them...one didn't run and the other had a bad leak in the oil and power steering leak...
They take insurance totals and "revive" them...all low miles too!
We got a 2010 Honda Civic with 41000 miles on it for only 8700! They gave us a 3 year warranty along with it too!
I priced the same car at the dealerships and it was around 17,000!
So far anything we have found that we wanted "tweaked" they have done quickly ! I plan to get the rest of my cars from them!
