Complaint Review: Auto Nation
Auto NationNationwide United States of America
Auto Nation selling wrecked & totaled cars AND cars that have been in the floods over the last year as great cars with no problem!
*Consumer Comment: So What Else Is New?
In many states, they do not require totaled vehicles to have a "salvaged title."
Auto nation then has them transferred to other states to be sold as Vehicles that were not in a wreck.
Buyer be wear! You can easily tell if this is the case. No matter what state or what dealership you buy a vehicle from, do check all around the vehicle for "over spray" paint, where paint does not belong. Any good mechanic can tell this for you and they would know what else to look for.
DO not be fooled by the sales person! Sometimes even the sales person is not aware of this. _______________________________________________
CARS THAT WERE IN THE FLOODS IN THE LAST YEAR ARE BEING SOLD AS GREAT CARS ..Hidden problems! _______________________________________________
Auto Nation and other dealers across the country have been buying cars that have been reconditioned from the floods over the last year. This can be easily detected by a mildew odor. Smell carefully the car and even around the car engine. Even the best detail shops have a hard time getting rid of this smell. Again, take the car to your mechanic for inspection. Don't take a chance!
Auto Nation is buying out dealers all over the US. They may have bought the dealer near you!
