    Avoid this business at all cost. They sold me a lemon and lied the entire time. I had to spend $4,500 on repairs just to drive the car. They said they... would stand by their car. xxxxxxxx!

    Dealer Response

    We are assuming this is a customer that recently was harassing our employees. This customer purchased a Tri-power GTO from us and upon delivery, there... was an oil leak. Note that the vehicle did not have any issues whilst in the showroom and before transportation. Our Customer service offered to help this customer with the issue, however the customer also had all three carburetors rebuilt along with the transmission, which also had no issues before the vehicle left our showroom. This customer has resulted to sending malicious emails personally attacking one of our managers and threatening lawsuits. This customer also left a review on our google business page and it looks like they also have taken it down after our response to the review. -Management

    I wanted to share my experience with trying to trade with Ideal Classic cars in Florida ...after negotiating with this company for over a week I was ready... to trade for a 1965 GTO convertible but because it was long distance I wanted to have a professional appraiser to come by to inspect the car before totally committing to the deal (just a side note I spent over 40 years in the car business so I knew what questions to ask) the GM is a dude names Kermit and this guy is right out of the old movie Used Cars ...first he gives me a trade difference and 2 days later goes up on it by $5000 ...then he says if I would make a "today" decision he would honor his ealier price ...I explained I had read all the negitive customer feedback online and even the BBB had complaints about him and this company so I still wanted to have a professional come by to inspect and drive the car ..he then said ok but I had to give a $2500 deposit to just get the car off their showroom to be inspected ...obviously I said no way Im doing that and hung up the phone ...later the salesman Fritz ( a good guy ) contacted me and said Kermit had agreed to wave the deposit but it all had to be done by the end of the month and this was on December 24 ...I contacted a pro to find out when he could inspect the car ...called them back and when I did Fritz told me that Kermit had decided he didnt want to do the deal after all ...this was after 4 days of phone calls, text, sending pictures in email ...just a lot of time wasted ...Kermit is your typical used car flim flam kind of guy the ONLY positive out of this was dealing with Fritz its to bad he has to work for a xxxxx like Kermit ...so beware of Ideal Classic cars and now that I think of it it seems to me that was the name of the car lot in the movie Used Cars !!!

    Great showroom, however I would warn everyone not to enter into any offer or purchase before doing serious homework check out filed complaints online at... BBB, RipOff Report, TripAdvisor and many more

    I took delivery about 3 weeks ago of a 70 Chevelle SS. The clock, lighter,horn, radio all did not work. To add insult to injury none of the keys worked... the door locks so I can't lock the doors. It's as if they never even looked at the car before delivering it. And I've bought from them in the past. Never again

    I recently purchased a 1931 Model A from Ideal Classic Cars and couldn't be happier with the car and the service. I live in Arizona and had never purchased... a car over such a long distance before . Mel guided me thru the process and I would be happy buying another car from Ideal just based on his professionalism.

    From the moment they answered the phone they were polite informative and not overly pushy like some car places can be.
