why would you let a company like A Class Auto Sales sell on this site? they won't take cash for the price advertised and they make you finance at a usurious interest rate. They are criminals!

Hey Buckaroo, it's up to you to research and find a dealer you can work with and who is going to give you a good deal. talk to family and friends. it's a lot of work and tough but worth it in the end. AS you found out dealers are in the business to make as much money as they can on the uninformed.


As I mentioned above, CarGurus takes its responsibility to consumers and dealers equally seriously. We understand that we have to deliver value to both constituencies. So how do we help dealers? The answer is simple: CarGurus helps dealers sell cars. Because of the unique way that CarGurus ordinates its search results, 95% of the leads sent from CarGurus to dealers each month are for inventory that has been validated by CarGurus as a Great, Good or Fair deal. As a result, these leads convert to sold vehicles at rates far above the industry average. Consumers going to dealers from CarGurus do so with 3rd-party validation that the car in question is a Fair to Great deal. No other listings site on the web generates lead inquiries with this built-in pricing validation.


1 Review Helps dealers bilk people Reviewed By Claude McConoughey on June 3, 2016, Paducah, KY I browsed Car Gurus for a few weeks until I found a listing for a Prius 5 at an extremely attractive price. I contacted the dealer and was invited to try it out. I drove 140 miles and was rushed through a test drive on unfamiliar streets in an unfamiliar car. It wasn't until I got the car home that I discovered the ad was bogus. I emailed the dealer and within a couple hour the ad was replaced with a new ad listing the car I bought as a prius 2. Dealer (Evansville Kia Volvo) claims they have nothing to do with the ads on car gurus and are therefore not responsible for mis listing the vehicle.
