Stafford Auto Sales Complaint - Stafford Auto Sales sold me a Lexus that was in a major accident and did not disclose it.
STAFFORD, VIRGINIA -- In April of 2010 I purchased a 2007 Lexus ES 350 from Stafford Auto Sales. The Carfax report showed that it had not been in an accident and no junk parts had been used in the car.
The President of Stafford Auto Sales told me the car was very clean. I test drove the car and it seemed fine. Because the Carfax report was clean I did not have it inspected by a mechanic. Carfax told me that the previous owner, or Stafford Auto Sales, did not report the accident, so it did not show up on their report.
It turns out that the car had major rear and front damage. I was told by my local Lexus dealership that it was a mess because junk parts were used in the repair. The car failed MD Inspection because the front rack and pinion steering leaked.
I have had numerous problems with the car since I bought. This is absolutely the worst consumer experience that I have ever had.
In my opinion, these people did not disclose the truth. More than one car expert has told me that they may have bought the car in a wrecked condition and spent a nominal amount in repairing it with substandard parts. I would stay away from Stafford Auto Sales!!
