Have been buying used cars for 40 years. Bought 2 from A to Z. Absolutely the WORST experience! Both vehicles were purchased under a contractual arrangement with the owner (Eli). Eli promises to deliver a vehicle to meet your needs at auction if you give him the cash up front. We were happy with the 1st car so gave him insurance payoff for another vehicle that had recently been totaled in an accident. I loved the vehicle that had been lost; it was older but loaded with options that all worked. For $ we gave him, Eli was certain he could find a replacement. Within an hour of giving him $, he called to say he'd found one; would be here in 2 weeks; it was actually 4 weeks-when it arrived it needed about $900 in repairs. Over 6 mo, we spent minimum of $1,500 more on repairs just to make it drivable; never did get check engine, ABS, or oil light to go off. It was "loaded" w/options that didnt work. I asked Eli to fix only one, the DVD player for kids. Paid him $125; replacement never worked-has not played a single DVD but Eli never offered to return $-Guess it worked once for him but he could never get it to work to show me that it did. After newly purchased tires wore out in 30 days I went somewhere else with A to Z receipts & asked if they could find what was wrong. Turned out Eli never recommended alignment after replacing front struts. Eli insists this was not necessary but an alignment did resolve the issues. The timing belt in the other vehicle broke within 90 days. Never considered that Eli's fault. However, the $185 ticket we got in Nov. for driving an unregistered vehicle purchased from A to Z in Sep was totally Eli's fault. According to Eli, he was too busy and just didn't have time. At the time I was nice about it because I was still trying to get issues resolved with the catastrophic purchase of tge other vehicle. When I confronted Eli about the alignment, he said I had been nice and gave positive feedback that repairs seemed to be improving things. Yes, I was nice because I'm a nice person and felt like I was being a chronic complainer. However, the vehicle never drove as it should and in retrospect, I probably should have taken Eli to court rather than go back to him after driving in a snow storm and feeling I had no control of the vehicle. I literally feel I could have been killed due to what I perceive to be Eli's negligence in ensuring the vehicle was safe to drive. One last thing, he scheduled at least 2 appointments with me that he didnt show up for which seems to be consistent with another reviewer's comment. If I could give him less than 1 star, I would. Let the next buyer beware, I guess.
