Lauer Brother Auto Sales Complaint - Do Not Buy A Car From Lauer Brothers Auto Sales!

Review by kimball777 on 2010-10-19
DO NOT BUY A CAR FROM THIS DEALER!! I bought a 2000 Nissan maxima and I have had nothing but problems with it. The check engine light came on 3 days after I drove it off the lot. I took it back and they "fixed" it. Not even 24 hours later the light came back on. I also was noticing the clutch was starting to act funny and when I told him (the owner) he said he'd have it looked at, he said it was fine. About a week later I brought it back to have him look at the clutch again and they replaced the slave cylinder ($95) which come to find out wasn't the problem. A few days after that my clutch exploded and stranded me on RT. 30 when I called him to complain he pretty much told me that I don't know how to drive a manual and that he's not going to do anything about it. The tow and new clutch cost me over $1000. Jeff is rude and just wants your money and will sell you crap and not fix anything or do anything to make you a happy customer! Oh and did I mention that I found a rodent nest in the engine, they check their cars really well before they leave the lot. DO NOT BUY A CAR FROM HIM!!!

Im guessing this was a used car lot and the car came with no warranty? Thats what happens when you go to these used car places.

And no independent inspection prior to purchase.

I am going to channel Judge Alex here. Did you invest a hundred bucks in having an independent mechanic go over the car before you bought it? Unless you live in Massachesetts, the vast majority of used car sales are AS IS, meaning you assume the risk of buying something without being informed as to it's condition. Next time have a mechanic you trust (preferably ASE certified) examine the car before purchase. If the dealer balks at allowing you to do this, walk away from it.

Starlord is right, especially in the case of a car that is 10 to 11 years old.

Sometimes, a used car dealer will do a 30-day warranty. In the absence of that, it's pretty much buyer beware.
