UPDATE April 2023: I was forced by this dealership to

UPDATE April 2023: I was forced by this dealership to take this review down when filing an insurance claim. They outright refused to send my bank the cars bill of sale required for the process. Extorted me to take this review down in order for them to finally send the paperwork (after 3 tries they finally got the right address) in order for me to complete the process. They also never transferred the title from the previous owner to themselves before selling me the vehicle, causing the DMV to have to track down this previous owner for verification. Again causing many, many more delays. Just now putting this review back up as the process has finally ended.. Wanted to make sure they couldn't mess up the process anymore than they already had. October 2021: Purchased a car from them and had it shipped cross country so all of my interactions with the dealer were either over the phone or online. Took about 3 months from purchase date to get the car to me because they repeatedly sent paperwork to the wrong location. After asking them to change the address (i had moved) it was sent to my prior address (happened 4 separate times). For about 5 days they did not answer a phone call, text, or email, after they returned i was told one employee was on vacation and the other had covid. While I understand vacations and sick leave they didn't even bother to let me know, and they're voicemail box was full, with no message about the leave. After finally getting the car ready for shipping i was promised a set of tires and rims to make up for the delays. No surprise to me they weren't in the car. Now finally on day of delivery i receive the car and it's battery is dead, and the car has 15 miles of gas in it. Rear axle blown, as well as all wheel speed sensors, and rear left baring assembly. I called to ask for reimbursement to replace the battery and i was told i was getting a call right back on a different line... Still waiting on the return call. Don't buy from these people, buying and shipping a car off facebook marketplace would have been easier. Lou was straight up irritating to work with.

Definitely worth the trip!

Van was just as described. Les helped out though out the whole process and made it easy to purchase. I came from Massachusetts to look at vans and Payless Auto Wholesale was the the best deal and customer service in town.

Patience is a Virtue

They held the car I liked and gave me time to save up for the down payment. There were a few issues with the Jeep in the first 3 weeks (the check engine light went on for a few different reasons) but when I brought it to them they fixed each problem as quickly as they could and gave me some advice on how to maintain the car better moving forward. Thankful they honored their warranty and took care of me before and after I made my purchase!

The best!!!

This was the "best" experience I ever had buying a car!!! From the start I felt taken care of. Les the manager was very helpful and accommodating. He even offered to pick me up from the bus stop if needed. After the sale I had some minor concerns with the vehicle. He made sure all was checked out and fixed. Payless guarantees their cars and has a great staff that TRUELY made my experience a positive one! They prove that all used car lots and salesmen are sketchy and not honest, but not this one!!!! Thank you, LES, "The Manager"... you're the best!!!

STAY AWAY!!!

DO NOT SHOP HERE! Payless Auto Wholesale should be delisted by every advertising agency. They belittle and ridicule women. Big Lou is only big in lies and yelling when he gets angry. Our vehicle is loaded with illegal aftermarket emission devices that render it uninspecrable. Payless was aware prior to the sale that the vehicle would not pass a state inspection. Sold it anyway. In the strongest terms DO NOT SHOP HERE.

AVOID THIS PLACE AT ALL COSTS

Do NOT waste your money here! These people are con artists. I would give 0 stars if possible. My husband and I bought an 03 Subaru here on 10/31. Below is a list of SOME of the issues we had with Payless Auto Wholesale. I really wanted to be happy with my experience. Lou started off as extremely helpful and willing to work with us. -Lou assured us Payless buys all their subarus from a Subaru Dealer in Jersey City. I bought the Carfax myself since Payless does not offer them. The carfax says the car car bought at auction in New York. When confronted with this info, Les showed us the titles for purchase of the car. He bought it in Paterson, NJ, and it wasn't from a Subaru dealer. (I still took the risk because thr carfax showed routine maintenance.) -I recommend you research the 3rd Party "Warranty" they offer before paying $300 for it. -Got the car 30 miles after leaving Payless before having an issue. The coolant reservoir was bubbling and the engine bay was splattered with coolant. Lou and Les gave me and my husband the run around. We called Payless to tell them of our issues. No one would talk to my husband since the purchase was in my name. First, Lou wasn't in the office. Then Lou needed to talk to his manager, who was sick. Then the manager wasn't in yet. Every time Lou promised to call me back and never did. After I kept calling and calling over thr span of 3 days I got in touch with Les, who told me I didn't know what I was talking about and the head gaskets on the car were fine. I should have been able to make it HOME with my vehicle before the issues started. -Had the car towed to a mechanic, who confirmed blown head gaskets. The Subaru also needed a new clutch and timing belt. $2,000 in repairs. Avoid this joke of a business at all costs.

DISHONEST PEOPLE, DANGEROUS VEHICLES

These people are a cliche of the used car dealer. Nice to your face, but sell you a car that has lots of problems. They don't care. They take your money and immediately forget who you are. DO NOT BUY FROM THEM. THEY WILL SCREW YOU OVER.
