Improper repair results in $20,000 bill for engine

Interstate Motorsport - Improper repair results in $20,000 bill for engine
Purchased a 2003 Porsche 911 in March 2017. Knowing the originally designed intermediate shaft bearing was destined to fail, which Porsche, in a class action lawsuit payed out over $20 million in restitution to owners, the owner of Interstate Motorsports agreed, in writing on my contract to replace the bearing as a condition of the sale. After the documented failure of the bearing, the only proper replacement is available by only two manufacturers, L&N or EPS, a totally redesigned bearing costing upwards of $600. When the ‘replacement’ bearing failed after only 8000 miles, I requested the invoice for the replaced bearing. The receipt provided to me from Interstate was for a bearing designed for industrial applications costing $13.23. No, that is not a misprint, thirteen dollars and twenty-three cents. The resulting failure of the bearing led to the total loss of the engine, costing over $20,000 in loss.

Buyer Beware

Interstate Motorsport - Buyer Beware
I purchased a lamborghini and was told by the owner Steve that this vehicle was "ready to drive". After delivery of the vehicle I noticed the idle was surging very bad and the check engine light was on. Turns out it required extensive mechanical repairs. Being fair, I gave them an opportunity to make it right. That was the second bad decision I made. Now not only am I out about $10,000 in costs, but the vehicle is still NOT drive able . I've gotten far better service from my local Cadillac dealer then these people. My vehicle was not only returned to me un-repaired, but the belt broke which had me left stranded and I required a tow. To add to this, it was returned scratched, torn leather on the emergency brake lever, and filthy with lubricants, oil hand prints, and what appeared to be saw dust (which they blamed on the delivery drivers. When I send my escalade in for an oil change, the car comes back to me details for free. Interstate Motor Sports of New Jersey is NOT the place to buy an exotic vehicle.

Boo Hoo i tried to cheap out and buy a USED lamborghini. Used means someone beat the crap out of it before you got it. If you want new, buck up Ego Eddie.

Anyone reading this can see that if the dealer was a legit business and wanted to "play with the big boys" himself he would be selling NEW exotic cars, not broken old ones. The point of the story is the dealer mislead the buyer on the condition of the car and did not provide good customer service.

Never buy from Interstate Motorsport of New Jersey. Steve the owner along with his bandits sells lousy un-serviced vehicles claiming to be of high caliber and his exotics are poorly maintained. After purchasing a vehicle from Interstate Motorsport I had it shipped to...

I love it when cheap *** try to be big shots by buying used exotics on the cheap. When they wake up a realize they bought a *** used car that someone used and abused, they cry foul.

You bough a used car chump.

If you want to play with big boys, you gotta cough up the cash. Otherwise don't cry like a *** when you get ***.
