Just purchased a new Tacoma from Performance Toyota and would rate the experience as 5 star. Emily did a super job. Would recommend to anyone shopping for a new vehicle
2004 Chevrolet Trailblazer LS review
Big, tall, safe, dependable SUV

Owned my '04 LT for the last 14 years, 130K mi, second owner. Other than the usual maintenance I had to replace: leaking variable valve timing solenoid, leaking fuel pressure regulator, climate control door actuators, ac compressor. Not bad, nothing major, the first 2 items an owner can do himself at very low cost. I like the SUV a lot since it's tall, wide, heavy, thick doors, safe. I get 16mpg city, 22 hwy - typical for all 6 cyl SUV and fine with me to have the comfort and safety. Toyota sedan came through red light n hit me in front R corner as I was turning L onto the road, felt less than a bumper car bump. I drove away, she was towed away.
I came from Denver to purchase a car after much research. Rino and others at Atlas Motors made it well worth the 520 miles. Had just a couple of issues post-sale, but everything was fixed and the trip back to Denver was uneventful. Thanks Rino and company. I recommend Atlas Motors highly.
2004 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 review
Suburban - longest running car in America

Bought this car used for $3,800.
-Plenty of storage
-Very comfortable seats
-Bad on gas
-Dated interior and exterior
-Slower car, but nothing an aftermarket air intake and exhaust can’t change.
-Make sure you get the cloths seats and not the leather, as the leather tends to crack over the years.
-Make sure the car has passed smog.
-Make sure all the windows roll down properly and the car starts right up when you turn it on.
Scott was helpful ...i came to check on a Saturn and ibleft with a Tahoe. Price Value is okay. Car had tire and light issues but replaced those.. Other than that very Happy for a nice engine. Overall a great experience!
2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer EXT LS review
Can't be beat

I bought my 03 Trailblazer used for $2,200 about 6 years ago. I have been in love with this truck ever since. Other than it being difficult to fuel, there is obviously a issue in the fuel inlet line (that I have never had checked but recently bought a 6ft. long inspection camera with LED lights on the tip to check into it) I haven't had to do anything buy but tires, a battery and change the oil in the first 5 years. I have had to put a significant amount of money into it in the last year, but only after my daughter took it off roading several times work her idiot friends that don't know a 4×4 from a passanger vehicle. So I did but front hubs, upper and lower ball joints on both sides, inner and outer tie rods on both sides, front lower control arm mounting brackets on both sides, both tail light assemblies, transmission safety interlock switch, brake light switch, cam shaft positioning sensor, Cam shaft actuator, alternator and starter. I have been chasing electrical issues and replaced the cigarette lighter and auxillary power port in the dash to resolve the OBDII port not having power. And am currently working on the brake lights not working. I know this sounds like a lot, and if you can't work on it yourself and have to pay a mechanic I'm sure it is. But all this was after 5 years of turn key driving. As well as after letting my 18 year old daughter drive it unchecked for over a month. And my wife drive it the first 5 years and absolutely refused to do any kind of maintenance on it to prevent future issues and catch the little ones before they became big ones. So if she had treated it properly and my daughter has kept the wheels on the pavement the vast majority of the work I have had to do would have never been a problem. All in all this is a strong engine in a very well designed 5 passanger midsized SUV that has 250,000 miles on it and the engine has not missed a beat. The standard issues with parts failing when they are not cared for or simply get old is about all the issues you can expect. And if you're doing it yourself working on this truck is easy. Just do yourself a favor and get a good heavy impact wrench, DeWalt has a good one with 700ft lb of torque. It will help with any suspension parts and taking off tires. Or you can get a 1/2" torque wrench and breaker bar and your set.
My experience with this truck has been great. I wouldn't sell this truck for any amount of money even work the work I'm doing to it. It's a great vehicle that has been mistreated by people who don't know better and won't listen so they can learn. Remove them from the equation and this vehicle is an owner wet dream!
Nate Garza at Jerry Seiner is amazing. I'm sure i bugged him more than my fair share about the arrival of my vehicle. The dealership entirely is all very friendly and helpful. They bent over backwards to make sure i got what i wanted/needed. You can tell they work hard to make sure you keep coming back. Which i will.

23 years on my 2000 xle ..
500000kms and still going strong..
Engine oil changed religiously every 5000 kms with liqua moly..
Transmission every 3rd oil change
Struts valve cover gaskets tie rods all done rear springs and shocks done timing belt water pump done every 90km I'm telling u if u do this it will outlast still any brand new 2023 car
Between oil changed o.5 of a liter gone and that's not being burned its from evaporated
Dane in the service department was very communicative, calling every step of the way to repair two issues, one of which no one had ever been able to solve. He had a senior tech who was very familiar with my Hyundai model assigned, and it was finally fixed. They even have a video feature so I could see the part needing to be cleaned out. I'm very impressed with how communicative the service department is, and when I came to pick up the car, it had been washed as well. Top flight service.

If I would have read existing reviews I may not have even looked at this dealership. I am happy to say it was a fantastic experience. Our salesperson was knowledgeable and helpful. Financing was taken care of easily much better than I experienced in December purchasing a new car at a different dealership. We were given a form to sign stating we could bring back our purchase for any reason within the first 7 days. It sounds like things may have changed here for the better after reading other reviews. I would suggest giving them a shot at your business. They earned mine, I hope your experience will be worth while as well.

Perfect Handicap Van

If you have a loved one in a wheelchair this is the perfect van for you. This was purchased for my mother. It was used only a few months. It has been checked out thoroughly and affordably priced compared to what’s out there.
The sales team was very prompt on getting back to us when we inquired about our vehicle. They were also very informative on the product and were able to answer whatever questions we had for them. Once we were to the point of agreement on the price of the vehicle they were always helpful with the rest of the sale all the way thru the sales contract. This was very helpful as we are in another state and everything was over the phone and emails. Thanks again, The Woodruff’s
1999 Toyota Camry LE review
Few repairs on my great Toyota Camry CE
January 31, 2023
By Rob from Aurora, IL
Owns this car
I bought my 1999 Toyota Camry CE 4 years ago with about 203,000 miles. I have had a misfiring issue where I had the sparkplugs, and wires replaced which fixed it. My water pump failed so I had to have it towed. They had to replace the timing belt too. Cost was about $400.00 but it was fixed in one day. There's 213,800 miles on it now and I haven't had any problems with this car in a long time. My instrument panel lights need to be replaced because the car is 24 years old and they just lived as long as they could. I highly recommend this model and year!!
I am 75 and have owned a lot of cars; my 1998 Lumina LTZ is in the shop for some major repairs.
My Neighbor had this 2000 SE v6 cougar for sale.
I love the car, I like everything about it, it is a bit noisy compared to the LTZ which is a very quite car, but that is okay.
It is a really good road car or a great GT,, I just get settled in, set the cruse and cruse along.
The gas millage is very good, better then the LTZ which has a 3.8 Buick V6.
visibility is excellent, accessibility under the hood is excellent,.
The power string on the Lumina LTZ is hidden next to the fire wall and you have to be careful not to burn your hand on a hot heater hose when checking the fluid level, it is not easy at all.!
The 1998 Lumina LTZ was basely a 4 door Monte Carlo, so it is a Sport sedan.
The quality of the Cougar is for superior then the LTZ and both cars sold for about the same price new.
I am really surprised how GM/ Chevrolet would produce cars of lower quality then Ford/ Mercury of that period. Maby this was a Mercury standard, this is the first Mercury product I have owned. And I am very pleased.
I would buy another Cougar, From what I can tell by my internet experiences these cars are popular in Europe, and they are easy to find online.
I bought my 2006 Saturn ion at 193,000 miles for $550. My ex got into a accident when it hit 240,000. It was such a reliable and strong car! Replaced some filters, battery, alternator, and also had to replace radiator due to running over a raccoon on accident :( I went back and forth a lot in that car doing doordash. I would definitely recommend that car to anyone who’s looking for something that’s cheap and reliable.
Owning this car for 40,000 of it's 65,000 miles I can say that the avg 24MPG out of the 250hp HONDA 3.5L V6 is all you need for an SUV. It has plenty of interior room for cargo (even has a grocery bag holder built-in!) which only gets larger when you fold down the back seats. Moved to college and back 3 years with it and this drivetrain gave me ZERO issues. It's engine is from Honda, so that's what you expect :) The transmission shifted smoothly as well. I never got stuck in the snow with it, it has good ground clearance and being FWD just pulls you along in the snow no problem.
It's not the quietest car on the road, but softer tires helped that. I made a couple of upgrades to bring it to 2020 standards such as a new Bluetooth touchscreen radio (with backup camera) as well as installed a Viper 2-way remote start system. This helped tremendously with the cold Minnesota winters it endured. Would definitely recommend this vehicle if you can purchase one that has been well taken care of!
I bought a 02 maxima se with 215,000 miles on it. whoever had it before me did not take very good care of it but I rebuilt the whole engine and is as smooth and good running as a brand new car. Love that thing, great power when you need it and gets fairly good gas milage if you don't hotrod it around all the time.
Super performance, Ton's of room (with rear seats removed I can things like full sheets of plywood.), very dependable. Mine has over 200,000 miles and still going. Only prob. I fore see is where the alternator is located.. alternators go out normally before 200,000 miles and the eng has to be pulled to get to it. This may be a very costly fix when mine needs to be replaced. : (
