STONE MOUNTAIN, GEORGIA -- I purchased a 2005 Kia Amanti from this dealership on 2/25. On 3/9 the car broke down while I was driving it. I had it towed to my mechanic who has determined that the engine needs to be replaced. He said that engine failure was caused by lack of oil pressure. He also told me that I could not have known about the lack of oil pressure because someone had disconnected the oil pressure warning light. Consequently, driving with low oil pressure caused irreparable damage to the engine components. Now I am forced to buy a new engine.

A disconnected oil pressure warning light would appear to be a deliberate attempt on someone’s part to deceive a buyer about the condition of the car. Though I purchased the car As-Is with no warranty, I have incurred significant repair costs less than two weeks after purchasing the car by what appears to be blatant deception.

I emailed William, the General Manager at United Luxury Motors, on 3/14 detailing my complaint and seeking compensation for my repairs. William left me a voicemail on 3/16 indicating for me to call him so that we could “work something out”. Upon receiving his voicemail, I called the dealership numerous times over the next several days and each time I either left my name and number with one of the employees for William to return my call or I was told to call again later.

I have had no success in contacting him and my subsequent email has not received a response. Apparently, United Luxury Motors has no intention of standing behind the vehicles they sell.

I would suggest you get a lawyer for this.

With low oil pressure it seems the engine would have been knocking like a brothel door.

When you place the ignition in the "On" position, all the lights should light. This is one of the things a potential buyer can verify.

Your state may provide some protection for you as a buyer, but I'm afraid the seller may not be under an obligation to do anything at this point. Even though he led you to believe he may "work with you," he will probably do everything possible to not do so.

United luxury motors is a complete scam. I purchased a 2003 Nissan maxima in February 2003 and the car broke down on me basically one month later. I had the car towed to the Nissan dealership in Gwinnett County they told me the car needed a new engine and there was no oil inside. Before I even bought the car I expressed my concerns will the vehicle to both the dealer and finance company. The manager William assured me if I had any problems he would fix the issue. I have called multiple times and have yet to be helped. Im still trying to figure out how to deal with this situation a new engine installed at the Nissan dealer is 6000$ to much on top of paying the monthly car not of 325$. United luxury motors is not the place to purchase a car, please beware. And if there is anything u can do please comment
