This place is no longer Cavalier Body Shop. They are called Collision Express now and after talking to them, has been since January 2014. My 2003 Land Rover Discovery 2 had some issues with the Cargo Trunk. The hinge had been bent and the trunk cargo trunk would not shut all the way because it didn't seal it all the way. I do most of the mechanic work for my Discovery and generally do not trust ANYONE o do any work on it, but this time, I just didn't have the time to mess with this alignment issue. I decided to go to a few auto body places early in the morning in Maplewood because it was close to my work and Maplewood apparently is a breeding ground for Indy Auto Shops. I researched that evening and found about 5 or 6. Collision Express wasn't on the list because they are fairly new and as you can see, they are still called Cavalier Body Shop. They were my first stop because I just happen to see them first. It was 2 guys working. They came out and looked at my issue. Polite guys, listened and one of the guys just popped the trunk open, even though I thought it was stuck and even took a crow bar to it. They explained to me the issue and what was causing it to not close all the way. They gave me a quote, I told them I would call them back because I didn't think it was needing to cost that much because I do everything myself and on that car and it just wasn't what I would charge myself. I proceeded to go to the other body shops in that area and soon realized, that the price and attitude was completely different from the other shops. It was quite a difference, one shop had to stop during the quote to let me know that they were at this amount, and they were not done yet. What?! so was this guy taunting me with his rip off price? I dont get it. I don't like to use names, but EGB body shop, you need at least a crash course on sales. Don't tell me I am $*($ while you are still trying to *(&(*R& me over. I decided to give Collision Express the business and they got me in at Lunch time. They were friendly and let me sit in the shop and let me watch them do the repairs. They were thorough and careful with my car. Got it done quickly and the owner came back with lunch for them I guess and was one of the friendliest Auto Mechanic guys I have ever talked too. Usually they hate every one probably because of the oil, heat and frustration. I would recommend this place to anyone. They not only deal with Auto Body, but also mechanical and looks like they do paint jobs. Very Clean Shop. 5 star is well deserved.
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.
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..
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.
Glendale Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram
I had visited glendale for a specific jeep wrangler, and found they didn't have any on the lot, so told Mike exactly what I was looking for. A few days later I received a call from mike about an 06 wrangler, 6 cylinder, manual transmission, with only 21.6k original miles. The cleanest 06 I've ever seen, and he told me about it as soon as he got to work (the jeep had been there 20 minutes). He sent a video of a walk around while on the phone with me so I had the chance to see it before driving to the dealership. Not that it would have mattered, I was 15 minutes away and would've gone either way, but it was a nice touch. Mike knows his jeeps inside and out, listen to what he have to say! Very personable sales staff, and they will get you what you want. I never new going to a dealership could ever go so well. They're correcting the slanderous nickname "stealership". Kudos ladies and gentlemen of glendale, kudos.
