Location:El Sugundo, CA
Buyer Comments:Went with Cars Direct. Previous experience was good. They found the car (manual, kind of hard to find) rather quickly. It was "swapped" (exchanged) with another car to a local Honda dealer. The final transaction was handled at the dealer (see cons below).
Pros:Not sure if there were any (see Cons).
Cons:Both Cars Direct and the local dealer were all over the fact that the car "supposedly" had LoJack installed. We told them we didn't want it. The LoJack price went from $1,000 to $600 to $400 to $198 and our answer was always NO! I even asked the dealer when it would be removed. He said "while we were doing the transaction." Yet he never called/emailed anyone. I say it was NEVER installed. Oh, yea, even though we paid cash we still had to "see" the finance guy who again hit us with all the "add ons." How many times do I have to say NO! We went with Cars Direct to avoid these hassles so I will think twice before using them again. It took us 2-1/2 hours (including the test drive) to get out of the dealer. My friend said his two transactions took 30 minutes. Both were cash sales. Lastly the Cars Direct guy said we couldn't get the 0.9 financing. The dealer said we could. But with the check drawn and myself leary of the situation already I opted out even though I likely would have saved about $500 with the money trickling out of the bank over 3 years. I'm also getting the feeling I paid a bit more than I should even though Cars Direct offers a 3 day guarantee if you find a lower price. I gave a "fair" rating, but feel it was between "Fair/Poor" for the record. Everyone was polite and professional, but get a clue, No means NO!!!
