St Louis Car Museum & Sales
So how do I write this in the most objective voice? I guess I am somewhat to blame...I could have gotten on a plane instead of trusting them.I saw a car on EBay that I wanted, a 1976 Triumph TR 5.0. I called St. Louis Car Museum and inquired about the car. Being a first time, novice car collector, I thought I asked plenty of good questions. The car looked great on the website and I loved the details, photos and video.I asked about the condition, being I live in NY and there was no way to fly out and do an onsite inspection, or is there?Having asked all the important questions to my salesman, and I will leave his name out, as I'm guessing it would not have mattered who I was speaking with...my final question was, is everything in working order, and is there anything I should know that I may not have asked. "No, you know everything"Well, long story short, I love the car, its gorgeous, BUT I WAS SOLD A CAR THAT HAS SO MANY PROBLEMS. Im almost done fixing them all...7 weeks and 10K later.Truth is, I would have bought the car anyway, but honest and reasonable expectations regarding issues and repairs make for a more enjoyable purchase I MUST SUGGEST THAT YOU NOT BUY A CAR HERE WITHOUT HAVING A THOROUGH INSPECTION.while I don't expect them to have known that I needed to repair a defunct cylinder, replace the poorly installed head gaskets, replace the master cylinder, repair all 4 brakes. Repair a broken stud on the rear tire hub. Replace and repack the rear axels and hubs. Repair the A/C that does not work. ....and much much more...they did know the A/C was not hooked up at all, there were no dashboard lights, the drivers side mirror was loose, the drivers door gasket was hanging,the drivers door, the trunk and the hood that all were out of line or not operable The radiator was leaking due to a faulty hose installation, and so much more.So, to repeat...love the car...hate the misleading and unfair treatment.BTW...I emailed my salesman soon after getting the car...and he never responded...that's weak. I agreed to buy the car as is, I realize I have no recourse, so why not respond.

Kings Auto Repair
Sat 45 minutes for 1 used tire, They told me they didn't have the exact size but they had one for my car. After 15 minutes turns out that the tire they had to sell me " 45 dollars " had a hole in it. they didn't tell me that. instead they attempt to retrieve another tire from somewhere else while I wait. When the technician returns they find out there is a hole in this same tire. Still while I sit in the waiting room nobody tells me in the mean time that they don't have the tire. They attempt to leave and get another tire. When he gets back with the " other tire " it turns out this tire has a hole in the exact same spot. They laugh about how he is so stupid he grabbed the same tire and left the other one. after the long wait they inform me they can't do anything for me. I am a working college student after leaving my job early to make it there before class starts they wasted a whole hour of my day attempted to overcharge me found amusement in they horrible service provided and sent me on my way with big middle finger. Up until this day this place was the only place I would bring my car for repairs because it was close. I would not come back or recommend this place to anybody I know. over priced, and they don't appreciate loyal paying customers. My advice. Don't waste your time coming to this place. It's a shame you can't rely on a good shop in your neighborhood to do honest work with good customer service. Horrible and inconvenient experience. I will not go back for work here again.

Jimmy Kavadas Your Credit Man
I'm a woman, so what...skip to the end if u don't want to hear my yammering....I can't express the anxiety of getting more in debt felt to me after finding out my credit wasn't anywhere near where I thought it was. “All the work I put into to it over the years, didn't amount up to anything;” one salesman quoted. How humiliating & what a bubble burst. With all the other problems that come w/ life (you know the kind coming up all @ once). Buying a car was suppose to be 3 months down the road, saving a good down payment w/ a decent or low APR rate.I came across Jimmy Your Credit Repairman and thought; Hmm??? I was expecting a dealer (you know the kind to sell you, then the sale's over kind of thing when you need the customer service their true come out). Low and behold I found Jimmy's Italian smile sitting across from me, making me feel comfortable. Not pushing the sale on me, really trying to help w/ finding what worked for me. After this (here comes the true colors) Jimmy continued to help beyond the call of financing in sales advising how to build my credit (lowering APR rate) the right, easy, simple & most importantly the cheapest way. Would I go to Jimmy again?? YES of course in a heartbeat, when you find a good man you keep him, RIGHT..

Don Brown Chevrolet
had a really good experience purchasing a car from Don Brown Chevrolet. I would have to say that everyone was very warm and friendly. I was help by both Paul DeYoung, who did an AMAZING job with helping me with my vehicle, and he has one of the best personalities ever! Ben Cordia assisted me as well and they made the experience a breeze. I was especially pleased that everything was done in a timely manner. The only complaint I would have is that when I spoke with Ben on the phone, he stated I would be able to get customer cash that would only apply to the vehicle that I was purchasing. I was never offered that. Once I got home, and the excitement from my purchase wore off, I remembered, but it was too late, the deal was done. I would recommend going forward that they not tell people they will do something for them that they have no intention of doing. Overall I was happy and would purchase again, I just would make sure that I don't sign the contract until I receive all verbal agreements.

Alex Autoplex
My wife and i purchased a vehicle from them in may of 2012 and we have yet to have any issues...i did not look at the reviews first but we like everyone should took it to our mechanic had it looked at and knew what we were getting into. besides basic maintaince we are very pleased with the money we saved , the overall quality of the car we purcahsed and the buying experince so satisfied in fact that we are going back to buy another car and thats exactly why im on here.So in short i personally think that its all in how you purchase your car and to the guy that said all he does is buy his cars from the auction ....thats where EVERY DEALER IN TOWN GETS THERE CARS !!!. uneducated people make uneducated choices . i would suggest alex autoplex to anyone and as long as your a smart buyer i think you wont ever go wrong here or anywhere .

In & Out Auto Plaza
I can express my gratitude for what they did for us at In and Out Auto Plaza! My wife and I were getting ready to start our next semester at college and then our car broke down the Friday before. We are full time students with very part time jobs and bad credit. We were turned down at two different used car lots that say they "finance everyone." Well, In and Out did what no one else could. Alina was amazing and worked VERY hard to find financing for us. Not only did we get financed, but when there was an issue with the car right after we left, they made it right. They fixed the problem in their garage at no charge to us. The mechanics were very friendly and helpful. They truly go above and beyond at In and Out Auto Plaza. Very honest and pleasant.

Westport Autohouse
We absolutely love Westport Autohouse! Mike and his mechanics are awesome. After several disappointing visits to a local dealership to have our Range Rover serviced, my husband and I stumbled across this shop. On occasion I could explain an issue to Mike over the phone and right away he could tell me what was wrong, confirming what the dealership findings were (without the extra maintenance) and by far at a much cheaper price. He's always been honest with us and only does the repairs that need to be done using quality parts and products..not after market items. We love his ethics and professionalism so much, that my husband has started taking his Dodge there also. I'm glad we have someone trustworthy we can take our vehicles to.

STS Car Care & Towing
What do you want in a mechanic?Trustworthy?Fair price?Good Customer Service?Steve at STS Car Care and Towing delivered all of these things!The guys in the shop were super nice as well and didn't make me feel out of place or uncomfortable.These guys are experienced and fair. I have no worries when I take my car in; I know I am being treated well. They will even pick my car up at my place of business and take it to the shop to services it and then bring it back or if I drop it off they will provide me with a ride to work if I need to leave it. I have had to have my car towed before also and they were prompt, reasonable, and provided me with a ride to my destination.I have been going there for 10 years.5 stars in my book.

Carriage Auto Sales & Service
I had went to 18 car lots before coming to Carriage Motors, I went to all the big name lots without any luck I decide to try a smaller lot. I was so pleased with the people at Carriage Motors in just 2 days I felt like they were like family. The owner is so pleasing, nice and trustworthy. Before I even got my car off the lot they help me put my seat covers on, my steering wheel cover and told me everything I needed to know about my car I purchased. I recommend that if you are looking for a car with low miles, and extremely clean this is where you should go. I will be getting all my cars from them from now on. And I will be keeping in touch with them in the future. LOL they are so nice.

Midwest Autoplex
I have worked with Midwest Autoplex since moving to St. Louis in 2005. Since then I have had I think 3 transactions with them. I remember the first one. I had done my research and searched all around for the best price on the vehicle I was interested. I called Midwest and asked if their price was negotiable. I was kindly told that they do not negotiate because they know their prices and the condition of their vehicles are the best around. I responded by saying, you are correct, I have done my research and checked around and you guys are the best in the area. I have always been treated very well by Midwest and refer everyone I know who is in the market for a vehicle to them.
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.
