Car Review from Ephrata, Pennsylvania

Biggest scam artist in New Jersey, tried to sell my grandson a car that was profusely leaking transmisson fluid after telling him it was in perfect shape, wouldnt return his deposit after holding the car for less than 24 hours,after telling him I was going to small claims court and calling channel 3 he called me a f____g B-----ch. Then called back and offered to give my grandson 50 dollars back, went to get the money at 2 oclock like he said the shop was closed ,he wouldn't answer his phone because he has caller ID and he knew who it was us.I called him on another phone and he answered right away. imagine a man in his 50's hiding. The man has no integrity . I also reported him to the BBB. He lied about everything and changed his mind every 5 minutes.

Resolved: Scammed and Sold 2 unsafe Cars

Used car dealer sold me a 2000 Pontiac Sunfire, told me there was nothing wrong with the car and it was just serviced and had the motor replaced. His mechanic confirmed it was a lie. 10 mins after leaving his lot with the car, the check engine light came on. The ABS light was on when we bought it and he said he just installed brakes, another lie. It overheated the entire way home.We dropped the car off at his so called mechanic, who refused to fix it. My fiance told him I just wanted my car back that we gave him as a trade in and that he could keep the whole $675 in cash we paid him. I traded in a gorgeous 99 Black Chrysler Sebring, in running condition. He said he would return the car. I asked him if it was in driveable condition and in the same condition I brought it in as, just 3 days earlier. I asked him that because my neighbors are friends of his and they told me that he told them he took it out for a test drive and the transmission died, which I KNEW was a lie. He told me my car was fine and driveable and in the same condition. He came to pick me up to go get it. When we got to his lot, he told me it wasnt in driveable condition and that the fuel pump went so the car wont run. So, then, he sold us a 96 Mercury Cougar for $2800. I specifically asked, whats wrong with it, and he said not a thing, it was just serviced. On the way home, the oil pressure dropped to zero every time we were at a stop and the check gages light was on. Took it to Mr Brakes 5 days later for an oil change, and they REFUSED to change the oil because the car is in such bad shape. I took the paper to the dealer/owner and showed him, and he didnt want to be bothered and said"you're getting on my nerves, you *** *** So we left. Last night we had almost no brakes and went to AAMCO. They said the car is extremely dangerous and shouldnt be on the road. The brake line is leaking and all rusted, the motor is bad, leaking rear wheel cylingers, and the list goes on and on. Last night, I almost had an accident coming home because I had almost no brakes and couldnt stop at a light. This is a buy here, pay here place, so we still owe $1800 on it and now it has to go to the junkyard. We are out our money and a car and dont have money to get another car. This car will end up killing someone. He also lied to our insurance agent on the phone with the first car we bought. He told her that we were paying it in full so we wouldnt have to have full coverage. With the second car, I told him not to do that. She is fine with the car being financed. He is unethical, doesnt ask for proof of income or even Social Security numbers. He just tells you if you are one day late with a payment, he charges a $150 late fee. One the first car we bought, he LIED about the total selling price of the Pontiac for tax purposes. The amount was $1800, but he put down the selling price was $800. He did not put on the receipt that we paid $500 in cash, he gave me $500 credit for my car and he charged us $175 in fees. On the second car we bought, after I threatened to report him to the DMV and IRS, he put the trade in and the down payment and full selling price on the receipt. I have both receipts to prove the descrepencies. I have tons of documentation to prove he is a scam artist. He buys the cars at auctions and has no idea whats wrong with them, then lies to your face and say they are in perfect shape. Almost every car on his lot had the check engine light on, or some MAJOR issue. He did not give us a copy of anything we signed, except the yellow receipt, so we dont even know what the contract says. Criminal charges will be filed and I plan to get a permit to picket his business with my teenage daughter and her friends. He told my fiance he put a fuel pump in my car and sold it. He knew I wanted back, and he could have sold it to me, but instead made me buy this death trap that I now have to junk. I refuse to pay $1800 more for it, and he can take us to court, where we can prove fraud on his part.
