I am a single mom. I needed a vehicle which was reliable. I understand I am taking a risk with buying a used vehicle; however, this jeep was rusted underneath, in the tire rims and inside under the carpet all over. It was also leaking fluids in more than one area. None of this was disclosed to me. Thank goodness I had a mechanic look at it before purchasing!! I would have bought a lemon!! However, they were able to obtain financing for me quickly and the staff was extremely helpful. If it wasn't for the shape of the vehicle, I would have purchased it.

Called to setup a test drive for a Jeep at 27,975 - then the day I was supposed to go there I looked online to make sure it was still there and they had raised the price to over 30k. Seems a little shady that after someone inquires about a vehicle you quietly bump the price up. I'll go elsewhere

The price online did not match the price on the car. They told us they would try and bring their price closer to what was advertised, but honestly did not try. The price was a $2,000 difference and they would only lower the price around $500 off of their sticker price. They salesmen or manager does not care about selling a car near the Kelly Blue Book price and is just looking at what money they will make off of each sale. They try and sell you on what your monthly payment is instead of the total price of the car.

Bait and switch. At first shown the "Buy here pay here" crap cars. I told them what I needed. I drive for a living. Buy here pay here means you can't afford it anyway and it's going to get repossessed. I am a driver for hire. Kept getting the run around. All I want is more honesty, show me the product I am interested in, and then go from there. There were also MULTIPLE hard credit inquiries from Ol' Ben.

I didn't have the opportunity to look at this persons credit,but I know we do our best to match up a persons credit with a car can afford and with a car the banks will approve the loan application on. I'm truly sorry we couldn't help you put a deal together this time. Doug J

This car sold 30 min prior to dealer calling me back :( They did try (without success) to find another car for me based on the criteria I gave. They assured me they could find another car, but ultimately were not able to. They did also connect me with another sales person to try to find a car, but no luck.

Nice enough guys over the phone, but I was told there was nothing wrong with the seats even though I could see very obvious seat wear in the pics. This seemed sketchy along with the strange text message to my cell phone from management. They seem like good ole boys trying to work a deal but I just sensed a need to proceed with caution with this crew. If you've got bad credit this may be a great place to shop. If you have good credit, I'd be more selective in my search.

Nick we try to get vehicles posted as soon s possible. While certain vendors for things like seat repairs may come after pictures are posted. Our Manager would like to let our customers know they are involved in the customers purchasing experience.

Prices listed are not correct for vehicles. Drove 1 hour to see vehicle listed at $9161 and when given price at dealer we were told that price was not correct that they add to those prices when new tires are put on vehicles, etc. that these prices were to get people in the door.

I sent two emails and never heard anything back! I called twice and they said they would call me back when they got the information on the vehicle I was wanting and never heard anything back! They must not want to sell vehicles to bad. I won't try to contact them again!

When I went to the lot, they would not tell me the price of a truck until I would tell them how I was going to pay for it. Then they could not find a truck I had seen on line. That will be my first and last trip there.
