Just want to warn people about Lee Auto and Maine Auto Credit. Both me and my girlfriend purchased vehicles from their "special credit program" which is financed through Maine Auto Credit. Right after the warranty ran out on her car (which was only 30 days) the transmission went. When we contacted Lee they said there was nothing they could do and referred us to Maine Auto credit. Well they said they could do nothing as it was a used car and it was our problem. After numerous calls and threatening to call the media they offered to repair the car but add it on to the loan. Yeah real good deal, so we can pay interest on another $3000 for the transmission. Also the ball joints were gone on this vehicle and should never have been inspected that way. Then on our second vehicle we purchased from them (which will no doubt be the last!) right after the warranty ran out the heater core went, which come to find out is going to cost $1000 to replace and a wheel bearing is going (which should have never been inpected either).
I realize they are used cars but was assured that they are gone through and inspected. What a laugh! Two junk cars which are not even safe and should not have been inspected! Then when I contact Maine Auto Credit they say they are not even affiliated with Lee Auto. Hmmm, they are the ones that finance the cars for this program and are located right inside Lee Auto in Westbrook, so you do the math. Anyway I just want to warn people about this scam going on and hopefully something can be done about it.
