05/29/2013St 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.

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..
My nephew recently purchased a vehicle from them and he was happy so I thought I would give them a shot. I did the normal BBB look up, A rated, that was surprising for a car dealer, but good. I went to their main location on Chippewa and I was shocked at the type of cars they had in stock for being a city used car dealer. The lot was clean, the cars looked good, I was pleasantly surprised. I was greeted by Al (a little goofy) and I had a fun time buying my A6 wagon. So far so good, check engine light came on one time, but that was because my husband didn't tighten the gas cap when he got gas....2 clicks. Give them a shot, Al makes it a very fun if not goofy time buying a car.
