They told me they didn't know if they had the car or not...

Excellent! purchased a car with them. Their financing representative John Bonomo was the best. John help us obtain the financing needed even with our poor credit. John shopped it around even after we drove the car for a couple of weeks and got us a great deal.

I will give it 1 star for the effort put to bring me the car. I got there I waited along time to see the car and obviously the salesman was trying to sell to me asking if i was interested in buying the car today when I hadn't even seen it yet. Finally after looking around the place a few times trying to keep myself busy. I was told the car was in their storage area not to far away. He comes out to tell me there was a problem with the 2012 mitsubishi I-miev es. The battery had died on its way over to me. I just didn't understand why it was not fully charged before i got there especially since i had made an appointment a few days before. I got to see it and it was really dirty and I couldn't test drive it after driving an hour to go see it from my home. I was a little disappointed but the salesman apologized and asked if I would like to schedule to test drive it another time. I am debating now if I should go and if it is worth my time.

Shady. Pushy management makes you feel uncomfortable.

I made a deposit and signed a contract and waited for a FedEx package to come with final papers for which I was to include Bank Check. They then sold the car out from under me! Obviously a deposit and signed contract did not matter. Do not do business with these people.

Stay away, I warn you stay far away from this dealership. They're only concern is $$$$, not the overall satisfaction of the customer. I purchased my vehicle (cash purchase) first week of May, now u understand that a dealership has 30 days to provide license plates/registration, but this was no Finance deal, so my tags should've been ready in one week tops. I've been calling daily speaking several individuals in charge of title etc, but I keep getting the run around and being given some Bulls... story to sshhhh me, and send me on my way. I've purchased several vehicles over the years, and never have I experienced the Bulls... until now. If you can, Avoid these little Used Car Dealerships, and stick to the bigger dealerships that get constant business and are not too concern with the small stuff (leaving no room to negotiate pricing). Take it from me, a Very Dissatisfied Customer. BEWARE!!!!!!

A very good experience thanks to Jennifer and Mike.

Wonderful follow up. I never got as far as test driving the car, as I drove another at another dealership. I'm still trying to decide if I want a 911 996.

They responded to one of my questions. is this the base model? Yes, it's the base model. Can you tell me anything about the car? no answer. I shouldn't have to pry information out on a dealer if they're can't to sell a car.

Overall a good experience, they were extremely helpful providing all the information regarding the vehicle. Would recommend Thrift to all family, friends and business associates

Didn't appreciate the wait time almost four days before they came back with a response and the response was terrible. I went to another dealer and got the financing they couldn't do! If your credit is less than perfect save yourself some time, don't use Thrift!

i contacted them and the car was sold already. took my name and number and told me he would call as soon as something of the same modle came in. pleasant to talk to.

I visited and checked a car there,it had some problems,I thought were not major,but it would have cost me a substantial amount to fix.I needed the price lower to close the deal.It did not work out.I have no complains about the sales person he tried to help and answer my questions.I might reconsider.

They emailed me to ask when I was coming to test drive the car. When I responded seeking clarification as the ad stated the car was not running and the dash was disassembled in the pictures because I'd be ready to take the car immediately. They simply never responded, but they continue to send me broadcast emails?

They have a different value curve. If you know what a car is really worth then no problem, otherwise make sure you know the value of the car you are looking at.

dealer sent email
Aug 20, 2012
I called before driving from New York to see the car. When I get there they told me the car is not there. I wasted gas and money.
Jul 30, 2012
fraud. Don't even understand what kind of car they have. They just simply try and push cars thousand of dollars over the retail value. They are robbing folks blind. What a shame
Jul 23, 2012
This dealer did not answer questions or return my e-mail when I questioned their sale practices. also thrift auto sales misrepresented themselves
Jul 21, 2012
Overpriced. Want to sell their warranty more than the car.
Jun 28, 2012
dealer was not truthful about condition of car, drove over 2hrs to view. Car was a dud and dealer never offered to reduce price or want to work with me, worked out fine. Beware !!!

The car that was described to me as "in mint condition" had scratches and dings on the body, was missing the passenger side review mirror, and had dirty upholstery. They wasted my time in a big way - I drove 63.6 miles to get there based on the description in CarGurus and also on the salesman's word that it was "mint." The mirror was a big issue, because although they gave me the keys to test drive the car, with no passenger side review mirror it was a safety hazard in the rush-hour Northern New Jersey traffic (notoriously perilous with TWO review mirrors!).

never called

Ron responded immediately to my email and he sent the information I requested.
Mar 21, 2012
Called the dealer and inquired about a car, and was told the car had a clean car fax and was in flawless condition and the ad stated gently driven, a real hard to find gem. Did some of my own research and found the car to have have frame damage, 4 accidents, and was bought at an auction. I will never look at one of their cars again. They are deceptive people. Beware!!!

A bit too aggressive. It's one thing to follow thru but bring too aggressive leaves me with the feeling this dealer is desperate to make a sale.
