The vehicle I purchased had only 5% brakes left on front brakes and were metal-to-metal on the rear brakes. There are locking lugs for which I was not informed of or provided with a key. Only given one ignition key. The brakes are a safety issue and I do not believe an ethical dealer would sell an unsafe vehicle. Cannot recommend this dealer.

I recently purchased a BMW 328i from Desert Import Export and was very pleased with my experience. The salesmen were helpful, informative and organized. I am very happy with the car, I have had no issues with the vehicle and I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to purchase a used car.

Spencer Auto Body & Paint
I have been a customer of Spencer Auto Body for over 5 years. I would NEVER take my car anywhere else! They are professional, honest and fair. They were so kind and polite when they did my estimating (both times)! There were no surprises, no hidden fees or additional costs that can somehow show up later. Their work is excellent, when they are finished, you cannot tell that you were ever in an accident! I would not hesitate to refer my family, friends and clients to Spencer Auto Body because I know they will always do a great job.

Beware, yes they are friendly, but you are probably better off going to a car auction yourself. Make sure you have a good mechanic check out the car, seems that they just buy them at auction and don't bother to even do an oil change. They do polish them up real nice though! Bought an Audi A4 from them, drove it less than 100 miles when the engine blew. Also, careful with the extended warranty that they offer, won't cover the significant problems. It also took too long to receive new registration. I would call them but would never get a return call back. They may be nice when you 1st want to purchase, but good luck after you buy a car from them. Not a good way to get repeat customers. I could of bought that car for half the price at auction. Live and learn !

Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
