I've purchased a number of cars from George at East Coast Auto Source over the years. I would recommend the following if you're looking at buying a salvage/repairable vehicle: 1) Choose your Auto Body mechanic FIRST prior to going to purchase a vehicle that is salvage/repairable and pay him for his time even if you DON"T BUY. Paying him $100.00 for his time might save you thousands of dollars in the long run. Take him with you to look at the vehicle you are interest in. A mechanic can identify hidden damage and cost that you as a buyer can not identify. 2) Get an estimate on parts from George (or any other salvage yard) as this is added cost to what you are actually paying for the vehicle. 3) Get a time frame on repairs from your mechanic: example: is his shop out 3 months on repairs? six months on repairs?
4) Add the cost of the vehicle, parts, repairs and time to fix and compare this amount of money and time to the same model vehicle that a dealership or private owner has for sale and analyze if the repair of the salvage vehicle is worth it....sometimes it is: sometimes it's not.
I've never had any trouble getting titles, bill of sale, or vehicles shipped upon purchase, etc from George. As indicated, have some knowledge of salvage repairable vehicles and get estimates up front and your repair experience will be much better.

Known George for many years. I’ve done body works for 30 years . Let me school some of y’all for bashing for not knowing what your talking about. These cars are totaled out by the insurance for a reason not because they enjoy doing it. If you go and buy salvage car and rebuild it most times your going run into stuff that your not aware of. That’s just how it works whether it’s salvage or working in dealership. If your buying a salvage car thinking well I’ll put a light on it and bumper on it and away I go then in most cases your definitely wrong.Now you can save money buying salvage cars and rebuilding.But expect the unexpected because they are salvage cars totaled for a reason and don’t talk s—t when u get the unexpected. If your looking for new car then go buy one at a dealership with no issues because in the rebuilding world you got spend little money
1995 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 review
High Performance affordable Classic for enthusiast
November 16, 2020
By John from Wendell
Owns this car
A 1995 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 convertible is always an attractive idea. its a loaded, low mileage V8 droptop for such an affordable price, you'll realize this slick red machine is irresistible.
Believe it or not, but the '95 Camaro has passed the quarter-century mark. That means it's eligible for classic car insurance and vintage car plates in many states. So, this is truly a modern classic. And because this Camaro has averaged less than 4,600 miles annually, it doesn't have the look of a daily commuter. The sharply pointed nose, sleek rounded side panel, and well-integrated rear spoiler are an awesome package, especially when finished in a vibrant red. The black convertible top looks nice against the black accents around the body. The Z28 emblems are original against the Emerald Green allowing the secrets of sole and contents. The whole car has the look of a well-respected machine, right down to the factory 16-inch alloys. In fact, the only addition we can recognize are the bright exhaust tips out back, and they just remind everyone why we love a good Z/28.
Purchased a used 2002 accord V6 ex coupe from a friend (1st owner) with 138,000 kms. Only service he did since ownership was new tires, battery, oil changes. When I bought the car I replaced all 4 brake pads & rotors. Drove it until 150,000 kms, then replaced timing belt & water pump, front engine mount. Couple months after the rear wheel bearings got noisy was replaced. I also received a letter from Honda to recall the Takata airbags, was replaced no charge at the dealership .
At 192,000 kms oil pan started to leak a bit of engine oil, & transmission oil hose to engine leaked. Tranny oil and hose replaced. Next oil change I’ll be getting the oil pan gasket replaced.
Owned the car for 3 years ( since 2018). A friend sold the car to me for a good deal. Spent over $3,000 CAN in repairs.
Overall still a good vehicle after putting 42,000 kms since my ownership. Air conditioning still blows cold with no recharging required. Digital odometer sometimes goes blank on&off 30% of the time but comes back eventually. Factory 16” alloy wheel paint peeling off. Body paint is intact. Engine and transmission is smooth with lots of power even for today’s standard. Regarding fuel economy I get an Average of 24mpg.
I’m aware of “transmission issues” on these models thus making sure to replace tranny oil every 40-50 thousand kms with Genuine Honda fluid is important.
My recommendation for people interested in buying one is to make a vehicle checklist before hand that way you won’t miss on anything, Or if not mechanically inclined best to bring the vehicle to a shop for inspection prior to purchase.
Found the car I wanted online. Called them and got pre approved before making the drive. I wa son and out within 30-45 minutes. Very pleasant experience I will be sending all of my friends and family to Stateline.
2000 Honda Accord LX review
Love for my 6th Gen

Owns this car
This is the first Honda I have owned and I absolutely love my car.
I've always like to looks of the 6th gens and got mine for a smoken price from my co-worker.
This car is super easy to work on. Especially with all of the videos that are out there. I've done all kinds of upgrades to it and parts are pretty reasonable. I just did a motor swap on it. It only had 369,000 +/- miles and it still has the original automatic transmission. Infact, most of if not all the parts I have replace where original. What an amazing car.
Hi my name is Larry Fields we had a very good experience with you all and thank you for the birthday card you guys are great
2006 Chevrolet Monte Carlo LT review
Great car and Great Project Car
November 25, 2022
By Caleb from Houston, Tx
Owns this car
Hi im 15 but im just here to write a review. So I recently got my learners permit and my dad has been teaching me how to drive some. The 06 monte carlo LT is the car he got me to drive when im 16. He says the ss isn't a good fit for younger people which I totally agree. A 5.3L V8 would be too much mainly because i can accelerate on a yeild and still get some slight tire spin so a v8 would be a bit much. Its comfort is great and at first my mom said to get a big car because im a decently sized person and all but when she heard my dad was going to pay for the car and stuff she let it be. I wanted a jeep at first because my options were limited to high sitting cars. But when i saw the monte carlo at the lot my dad took me too i just had to accept his offer. Though im only 15 ive been a decent mechanic most of my life. So the person selling it was my uncle and he allowed me to test drive it. It handles well recently i fixed the wheel because it wasnt alligned. My dad says if i can find a fair price for something i need for the car then he will buy it and I will fix it. Which is a fair deal. I have a project car at a young age. I still need to see whats wrong with the front right. Every time i brake it shakes the wheel so when i diagnose that im gonna fix it. Oh i apologise i shouldn't have said so much this is a story more than a review i apologize have a nice day. To sum it up good car great design it looks like a race car
My dad said someone named dale earnheart i believe drove it in nascar. Thank you for your time.
Came to KDK Mitsubishi to get a car with my wife and she purchased and brand new 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport from Celsio great salesman and very reapectable recommend comong in to see him
2007 Chevrolet Cobalt LT review
My SS SC Cobalt still runs like new. Great car!

By Kat from Canby, OR area

Bought my SS Supercharge in 2007. We did have one issue with the wiring. Took it to the shop, was given a rental car, no charge. And since then nothing to complain about. It still looks new in and out. I'd recommend this car.
I just purchased a 2001 Toyota Echo from a friend. I really like the car, it's solid and has enough power to get on highway ramps quickly. Most of all is the gas mileage.
For a twenty year old car, it's great!
I bought my 2009 Chevy cobalt at 52,000 km for $4,600 in 2014. This car was bought to replace my 2002 Volkswagen Jetta (I would never ever by volkswagen again nothing but expensive problems). The cobalt was a manual transmission, very basic model. It was a fantastic car for me, and the car treated me well. Affordable and never any major expensive fixes needing to be done. Regular maintenance and oil changes every 5000km or 3 months (which ever is sooner) will keep this car reliable for you. Only issue I had with mine was rusting on the drivers side door that I should of dealt with sooner (I live in a very cold climate of Canada where the weather is terrible on vehicles). 10/10 would recommend. I wish I could buy this car new today. Unfortunately someone ended up side swiping me and ultimately writing the car off at 210,000 km. I think the car would of lasted even a few more years. Great car if you’re not picky and needing all the bells and whistles of a fancy car. For a small car was even good on cargo space, we took it camping many times and it was just fine for couples camping.

By Parkranger from Lake City Michigan
Over the years I've had great service with Jerry the salesman. Of the cars I had purchased only one had given me problems but I should have known a BMW would do that. All the cars had great prices and held up. The low prices reflect that there could be cosmetic damage or a scraper to here and there but overall the cars are really really nice. I like this place

2008 Pontiac G6 GT review
November 3, 2022
By Steve Z from Gloucester, Va
Used to own this car
We have a 2008 G6 Sedan. It was our family car, then my daily work car, now my daughter drives it to work. 257,000 miles on it and still going strong. Regular oil changes and routine maintenance. GREAT car!
Had a great experience selling a car here. Almost entirely had to do with Brandon Weier, the rep that I worked with. He was cheerful in his greeting and all the way thru the process. He was a straight shooter. We laid all our cards on the table and came to an agreement. I was there from out of town, and we had to deal with a minor signing issue and he was willing to personally drive me 20 miles to meet my wife for a ride and final sign on stuff. Great guy to chat with along the way as well. Can't recommend Brandon W enough! If you're here looking to buy or sell, Brandon is the guy to ask for.

By JIMBO from Greenville, SC

2005 Scion XA.
Bought @ 158,000. Running Flawlessly @ 167,500. Put about $1,100 in Basic Tuning, Oil Change to Full Syn, Matching Filter, Air Filter.
No Engine lights. No Issues with my OBT2 Sensor. No Leaks anywhere!
Manual 32-37 when New... My last 4 Averages are 34.2 consistently. I drive about 30% Highway.
My 2005 Scion XA had a long Carfax Sheet of Regular Care... big reason I paid the $4,400 from dealer ask of $4,900.
A Best Buy? I expect 300, 000 from this time machine. A simple car... made to run forever?
Very, very happy. Even for a small engine... it's FUN to drive!
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.
This car was one of the most beautiful and reliable cars I ever owned. The Northstar engine always started and ran beautifully. It got excellent fuel economy as well - 26 mpg highway - until I put nitrogen in the tires, and then it got 29 mpg! Handling was nimble, solid, and luxurious.
