I liked quite of the few cars I saw at this lot. They have many car makes like Nissan, Dodge, Saturn.. also more luxury vehicles as well. However when I test drove one of the nicer vehicles I was quickly disappointed as I noticed the transmission had issues, and the back end was going hiatus. I knew this because of my experience driving 'problem' vehicles.I liked another vehicle that I test drove and it drove quite well, so well that I wanted to buy it. After making my decision of the car I wanted I let the salesman know that one of the cars had clear issues which even my mechanic confirmed were present and he expressed little concern or motivation to fix it. This was a red flag.Ignoring the one red flag I signed a few papers but couldn't drive off the lot till I got full coverage insurance, I told the salesman I would be back in a couple of days for the vehicle. When I got approved for the car loan I called the salesman and he told me that the car I was wanting had minor issues and that it wasn't there, and that I should come in immediately to discuss my options. The lady who informed me my loan was approved contacted me and said the car I wanted was no longer available apparently she told me he found another buyer.After days of anticipating of getting this new nice vehicle I was left in disappointment I immediately went to another dealership who took care of me and seemed more sincere rather than just wanting to get a sale. It's very very sad how a person would sell a hard working, independent young man who lives on his own, pays his own bills, and sometimes barely gets by a car that's transmission would have had major problems in the following 6 months... just to get a sale.It has a few nice cars, and a very low down payment , so I give this place a 2... would I ever buy a car from them? No. Would I recommend you trust what the salesman here have to say? No. Trust is the first part of Customer Service, and this place doesn't ensue it.
