    I bought a used car thinking small project in terms of $$$ as I asked many questions regarding car condition. They basically lied about most of my questions... as after a month the car had all kinds of problems which they stated it was in sound mechanical condition. customer service was my worst ever experienced. I asked for a test drive and was told do you have money? if we do not have an agreement on price there is no need to drive the car. With over 15 bought cars to my credit I never heard that from anyone selling a car! you usually drive the car then negotiate price. I was not expecting perfect service but a little honesty and fairness goes a long way in attracting repeat business!! I guess some customers are content their still in business but my experience was definetly unsatisfactory. I was shopping for a rare car so i tolerated much more than normal and a rare unpleaseant transaction was what i got! I forgive them but wont be sending them any referrals!

    If you are looking for a cars that are under $5000, then this is the spot. They probably have 20 cars from $2000-$5000, which are becoming more and more... difficult to find. Good cars for high school kids, people looking to get from A to B or people who need a car, but don't have the credit to finance one.

    I was told that the car has no issue whatsoever and once I test-drive 2-3 issues cam along. Disappointed and frustrating when they advertise like you can... count on them but then again they just want to do business even in neighborhood they don't care about the customer who has to deal with all these after they but the car .... Please try to make sure you're putting your feet in their shoes before you sell them such cars.

    I went to purchase (2) cars for my 18 & 16 year old kids for HS and one for college. They told me not to make them waist their time if I was not buying... and for me to show them the cash. Nice cars online and when you visit the dealer, the cars have issues. Be cautious!!!

    Where I live near Houston, TX, there are not many used cars with low mileage. I found a low-mileage, Honda Odyssey via cars.com at Howard "L" in Chicago.... I read reviews, then contacted dealer via cars.com. Received prompt reply. Called salesman who described vehicle accurately. Dealer could not hold the vehicle, but I took a chance and flew to O'Hare on a Sat morning. Took taxi to dealer. Vehicle was spotless. Bought the van. Have driven it 5,000 miles without any problem. At TX DMV, there was a problem with the date on the title that was corrected promptly via an affidavit mailed from Howard "L". My transaction was handled professionally. I would deal with Howard "L" again.

    i have bought 2 cars from them over the years,i just needed a good dependable car for not alot of money.just to go to work an back,the first car i still... have and handed it down to my son,and the other car i still drive everyday,i am not one of these people to sit and right reviews but after reading the recent reviews i had to!!do not believe what these people are saying,there is no pressure there, everyone that works there has always treated me fairly and with respect,and helped me with exactly what my needs were and like i said i boughtg more then one car from them and i buy alot of cars. i have a very large family,so if you want a nice used car i would definatly check them out.and dont listen to the other ridiculous reviews because they are full of bs!! howard l auto sales is very easy to deal with,and maybe the problem wasnt the dealer but the person buying who went there to buy the car,,ha ha! thats my take on it.and im entitled to say it like it is.just like the people that wrote negative reviews were..so take from someone who is real. give them a call or just stop in, they have cars for all price ranges and they had some cool old cars to..

    I went to see this minivan and was disappointed. The van actually over 180,000 miles on it and had an oil leak. The salesmen were very honest though the... ad wasn't!
