Griffin's Auto Sales
I bought a car at Griffin. Everything was fine the gentleman that sold me and my husband the car was awesome. However the girls that work there are the rudest most unprofessional people I have ever dealt with. How could someone treat a customer so bad. I will never get another car again from here again. This was my second car from there and they lost a customer

There ok in a pinch when your down and out and in need of a car. Took them 3 weeks to get me a car, then there garage is useless for any help when I did get car, and there staff is very unpersonable and always bothered anytime you call them. "For whatever reason" I have a problems every week just making a payment.

I bought an Eclipse here. It had rot inside the rocker panels that they covered up. It started rotting through in about a month. It was in the shop for the first month and they kept saying it was almost done. The throw out bearing was bad and the synchro in second was bad. They said they would fix it but never did. They charged me $600 for a terrible warranty. I owed $400 more on my car and then they told me I owed $1600. I was done with them at that point so I didn't pay it. They repo'd the car and stole everything I had inside of it.

Do some research before going to see Tim Griffin, there's lots of reviews on other sites. Many people have been robbed by him and his POS cars and trucks. He buys em cheap and resells them at ungodly prices and jacks up the interest for the less fortunate
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.
