Put Money down in a car you change your mind, go back to get your money they give you tones of excuses its like they want to keep your money or force... you to buy their cars with high, high mileage they make you go there so many times and keep saying that the owner is never there.
These guys where very helpful when no one would work with me. They helped me with the whole purchase from start to finish. All I had to do was register... my vehicle and they took care of the whole thing.
DO NOT buy from them. They took my husbands money and kept giving him one excuse after another why he couldn’t pick it up. The truck was missing from... the lot everyone he went back. 3 weeks later he went back and told him he wanted his money back. The guy told him he couldn’t give him the money back until he sold the truck. I wasn’t about to leave the truck there that we paid for. My husband told them he would be picking it up that day. I will be reporting them to the better business bureau
My girlfriend and I bought a car from them about a month ago. I was weary at first because of some of the bad reviews and honestly I would have rather... bought private party considering our budget. As someone who has mechanical knowledge and some experience with cars and repairs, I figured there was no way I could get completely scammed here. To an extent I was right. I picked a car that was extremely simple, and didn't seem to have any major problems. I looked it over, found a number of simple issues, and kept track of them while talking to the salesman/mechanic, John. Basically, every time I pointed out an issue, John would say "Oh we'll take care of that before you pick it up. I know about cars that's why I can guarantee it won't be a problem." I figured "well a salesman is going to try to sell to me. Of course he'll say that." But I digress, more to the point I decided to give him some money down while we went and got the title for our trade and the rest of the cash. That was my first mistake. We were coming right back so I really didn't need to leave any down payment. Anyways, we return to the dealership with our cash in hand and sit down inside to do paperwork. I asked John if we could get something in writing about all the work he had promised to do. Immediately his expression dropped. He was pissed. He asked me if I had the money, snatched it out of my hands and counted it. He had added the inspection sticker fee to the price (without telling us), took our money and replied "You xxxxed me out of 5 dollars." I spoke up "Oh I can go get that if it's a big deal. Sorry I didn't realize the inspection was $55 dollars (or whatever) instead of $50." He just gave me a dirty look and walked out, leaving us with the paperwork guy. I asked him about getting the work that John said he would do in writing, and he replied "Oh the car has to pass inspection by law." That was it, our only answer. They already had my money. At this point all I could do was hope that the work would get done. So I spent the next week at the registry getting the car registered, apparently the previous inspection sticker on the vehicle had lapsed and it needed to be inspected before and after registration. I told John this and to his credit he took care of it. I returned the week after with the plates and gave them to John. Immediately he asked if I was going to pay for the inspection that he had to have done. "Do I have to? Wasn't that part of the price?" I asked. "No no that's supposed to be your responsibility. It was 55 dollars." I seemed to remember this being included in the price, but I didn't have the receipt, so I agreed. "Will you take a card?" I asked. "If you pay with card it goes to the dealership and I don't see any of it. I paid out of pocket for that inspection so I'd take cash." Whatever, at this point I just want the car as soon as possible so I agree. I get in my car and start to pull away to go to the atm and he yells at me out the door of the dealership. "Hey are you going to pay for the other inspection too?" Sure, whatever I go and get 120 dollars that weren't mentioned in the original price and give it to him. Fast forward a few days and the car is ready for pickup. As we pull up I notice right away, the dry rotted tires aren't replaced, the scratch on the side isn't fixed, the inside of the car isn't cleaned. All things John had said he would take care of at the time. Either way at this point, we needed the car and we couldn't wait so we took it and took care of the problems ourselves and I hope I never have to go back. Could we have gotten a better deal? Yes if I was more deal savvy. Could we have gotten the work done? Yes if I had more time to wait. Is all of this the dealerships fault? No. But it certainly wasn't a pleasant experience to feel like I was being extorted for cash
I had a serious motor problem with my Ford Explorer on thanksgiving. I needed another vehicle quickly and with Christmas on the way, inexpensive too.... After stopping at several used car dealers, with their high prices and higher miles, I came to Old School. There I met Ms. Kim who was very kind and kept me informed through the whole process of my eventual purchase of aother vehicle. Dave was spot on with the paperwork and I had no troubles registering it. My "new", Explorer also needed a few repairs, a bearing, bumper and even some pealing paint. These problems were remedied quickly and I was back on the road. Buying a used car is a shot in the dark sometimes but it worked out great for me at Old School used cars.
This place is a joke there all xxxxxxxx that say the cars are fine and they will put a sticker so you don’t really find out there scam of selling you... junk that need tons of work this guy John sold me a truck after a week I still didn’t have it supposedly getting fix which was a lie mind you I already paid him all the money when I picked it up truck was filthy inside and outside it hesitated to start mind you I had 1 an half drive home but was told the truck was fine the same day I picked it up it died in the middle of the street my boyfriend called John and said we just want are money back he said your not getting your money and basically Said I need to pay for repairs on my own it’s not his problem mind you he gave me a 30 day warranty this guy is a con Artist so after paying for a tow and getting a real mechanic look at it it’s a $500 fuel pump plus my ac that was supposed to work doesn’t. I have read A lot of reviews this man has scammed so many people it’s not right he moves from dealer to dealers because people are looking for him if you go here your a fool I have contacted the Attorney General and a Lawyer and the news this man is not gonna get away with this anymore
From the look of the place I should have known better. Be very careful if you give them a deposit. They will not tell you that your deposit is non-refundable... but will write it on your receipt. So, if you decide not to buy the vehicle after doing some more research to find out what they and their cars are really like, (JUNK) they will not refund your deposit. One of the worst experience I ever had when trying to buy a vehicle. The owner was very rude and not a nice individual. I would not recommend that place to my worst enemy. I cannot state strongly enough DO NOT BUY ANY VEHICLE FROM THOSE PEOPLE at Old School Auto. Don't do it, you will regret it!!
Great service, friendly people, I would recommend to anyone. ¿¿¿¿¿
When i drove up i saw the sign but kept going because i did not think it was the actual dealership or so called dealer. Looks good online. I did call with... no return answer. When i approached this dilapidated building with a homely looking bunch sitting on couches inside the door glaring out and another bunch gathered around the broken vehicles outside. One person did volunteer to help me and he was nice enough a good salesman i would not recommend this dealer tho. Some people have tho if reviews are real so good look in the hunt.
