Hello,

 I bought a pre-owned car from Chris Stylianou, the owner of Major Auto Show in Brooklyn, NY. I have not enjoyed my car for a complete month to this day. A few days after I purchashed the car, it gave out as I was driving in light traffic. Anyone could've been killed. I took it back to him. He said he would fix the engine, speedometer, etc. 

 He held on to the car for the entire warranty and the only difference I noticed was the check engine liggt was no longer lit. The muffler is still leaking. The air conditioning is not working because he removed the belt and the compressor is no good. The brakes are no good. I have to push the petal almost completely to the floor of the car to stop. I was told I'm breathing in carbon minoxide because of the leaking muffler.

 I have kids who ride in this car and he has to pay for ripping me off. He did not even submit my registration to the dmv. I have an expired paper on my windshield. I work very hard for the little money I have. I had to max out a credit card to make some repairs. He has a mechanic named JUAN who seems to want to do the right thing but at this point, I cannot trust him either. I am warning people to beware of these people. He has a worker named Sergio and a few others. Avoid them all or go through hell. No sleep, depression, poor work performance as a result of this stress. Also, he does not return calls. Sergio said all the messages I left were in vain. Very sarcastic errand boy. Chris' cellular phone is the best bet to leave a msg. If you need it, let me know. Leave an email address or something. I have recordings and I must sue this man. That is all.

Greetings! I'll keep this brief. Mission accomplished. He gave me the Notice Of Recorded Lien. I can now get a new one and sell this car. I appreciate the owner of MAJOR AUTO SHOW, CHRIS STYLIANOU, keeping his word. He was very generous and pleasant, I might add... :-) Special thanks to everyone here at R.O.R!!! Much blessings and continued prosperity to you.

Update: Paying Off Balance Today. He Says He'll Take The Lien Off.

AUTHOR: Dawson - ()

Today, I am making the final payment to the owner of this business. I told him I would stop by to do so. He said once the final payment is made, he'd take the lien off of my title. I am not going into the year 2014 with this.This nightmare will be over soon. I have suffered. Time and a lot of money wasted. I've learned from this. I also am spiritual, so everything must work out in the end. He seems like he will stand by his word. Hopefully, the next update will be the last & I'll be able to tell you guys he is now a stand up guy.

Hello fellow consumers,

I'm making this very brief. Busy day and it's the same ole with this guy. I made another payment of $100 on this peice of crap car (2nd one). Yoie know the story. I gave him the title to the nissan that gave out on me on the road and nearly caused fatalities. Anyway, he told me to remove this report. I told him that is not possible. I can only update it. I cannot wait until I make the final payment so he can take the LIEN off ofthis car that is supposed to be mine. He really thinks he is the victim? Unbelievable. I should have test driven that first car myself but I was naive and I didnt tell him to get out of the driver's seat so I can drive it myself. I didnt check anything.

Be careful and take a man with you who is very knowledgeable about cars. Dont let a fast talking, soft spoken con artist distract you. Take your time. Drive slowly. Listen for noises. Feel if the car jerks. Look to see if the fuel indicator is working mine isnt working on this car either). Look under the hood. Take the car to a mechanic you trust or pepboys, autozone, etc., to get a rundown of what needs to be fixed (in writing) and let the dealer fix it before you spend thousands of dollars. Do all of this before the warranty is over. Check the heating and a/c.Nothing will be perfect but you want a car you can drive safely. I will make a last update when he takes the lien off of 'my' car. 

By the way, I wish I can put audio recordings on this website. I have a hilarious one of our encounter today. I'll be very willing to upload or even send it to anyone privately. This person talking about the next person. Sometimes, when you have been lying to people for a very long time, you start to believe yourself. Sociopaths and antisocial personalitymay be the root of the problem, or, just plain greed. 

Excuse any typos. Have a good one.

Paying Insurance For A Car I Don't Own

AUTHOR: Dawson - ()

It just dawned on me how I am paying nearly $200/month in car insurance for this car I have (right now) with the lien on it (that he put on it). It may be another car, then another. Im at work and this is screwing up my attitude and job performance! Cant concentrate. No sleep. I stopped driving the second car a few days ago. Dont feel safe in it. Check engine soon light came on as with the other clunker. Cant wait to be rid of tjat con artist. Justice has to be served.

Adding Info I Forgot.

AUTHOR: Dawson - ()

I mentioned an accident with his DEALER plates... I forgot to mention how the officers showed me all his paperwork was expired. I called him again and gave an officer the phone. He told the officer he forgot to update the info with the new insurance cards, etc. The officer was a bit upset. Seems he knew something was up with that guy. I got back on the phone and guess what? Chris Stylianou says my car is fixed and ready to be picked up! Wow! If I didnt have this accident would I have gotten my car back suddenly? He had the car throughout the warranty. He showed me hollow tip bullets in a car someone brought in to have it painted a new color. I wouldnt be surprised if that was a message for him. Sad what some will do and what some are willing to lose because of the love of money. There is no excuse to treat decent people the way you wouldnt want to be treated...or your father, son, mother, wife or daughter.

Update... SMH.

AUTHOR: Dawson - ()

Now, this guy has come up with more ways to rip me off. I never received my title for the car (that almost blew up with me in it because the car was a lemon when he sold it to me) that I had to get towed. The reason for that is he just recently sent it in to the dmv. Since then, he gave me a car I cannot stand to look at which cost me another $600. 

I'm not done yet... He put a lien on this recent car. He says when I get the title for the first car, he will take it off. All of his cars are JUNK. He knows things will keep happening with every car people get from him and he is in debt himself, so, he is ruthless, selfish and doesn't care whose lives he puts in danger and he is going to do this until it catches up with him.

Then, he'll change the company name and move his little business to another area. One time, when the first car gave out the first time, he gave me his DEALER car with DEALER plates to use while he fixes my car, which he never did. He made it worse. It so happens that on my way home from work, I got into a minor accident with another driver with his dealer car. 

He had told me that if I ever got pulled over by police, unscrew the rear license plate and the papers (insurance, etc) will be taped to the back. It had been a month already and I was always uncomfortable driving that car and got very depressed because I realized I was dealing with a crook. I called him and gave the officer the phone who told him he better not give anyone a dealer's car again and he should know better. He said he will get a summons if there is a next time.

Now, this dealer brought up the accident and had some woman call me. I gave her all the info on the accident. She never called me again. HE is telling me I have to pay for any damages. Why does he have insurance? People told me to take him to court. I'm livid and I hate this man for causing me so much sleepless days (I work at night). Even now, this second car has no ac and the gears dont work properly. Fir instance, it wont drive forward on "D" only on "3". Too much to write. I see this man too much. I just wanted a pre-owned car to get me to and from work. I got a nightmare that wont end.He wont get any more money from me after this $600. I should get the title in two months.We're giing to end up in court.

I let him hear the recording of his own employee saying what a peice of crap he is. Also, he didnt like that I knew of his no good cousin who is also in the business and treats him like a stranger...the recording says. I've been conciously collecting evidence because we will end up in court if he wants to keep trying me. The nice people who helped me get a guy to tow my car are in the same business and their cars are cheaper than what I paid for the two clunkers. There was a beautiful jeep they had. Clean engine. Everything was in mint condition. Mileage notbad. I called them while at the crook's dealership (if you want to call it that). Put them on speaker. I told them as soon as I get this title and he takes the lien off, I'll be seeing them. 

My God, I have work in 4 hours and I'm here typing tbis update. Since meeting that devil Chris Stylianou, Ive been getting very little sleep which impacted my life and mood in a very negative way. I'm getting a headache. I'm going to try to get a little sleep. I'll keep ya posted. For the record, Chris, if you or any of your affiliates mention this report I will be recording you as always. Know that.Do the right thing or we will be in court.

Since This Report, Car Gave Out On Highway.

AUTHOR: Dawson - ()

I paid $240 to get the air conditioning to work. Since I filed this report, I encountered another ripoff and nightmare with these people. While driving, the car started jerking violently and my hand slipped off the steering wheel. I was not hurt. The car started smoking and gave out. Cars were honking. This was on a busy highway. The car was towed and I was stranded. The dealer is charging me $100 to fix a leaking water pump that I'm sure they new about. They tamper with things to make you always return to spend more money and use credit cards if you dont have the money.

 

I have pictures. I can care less how they feel about this post. They messed with the wrong person and I have just begun. Fix the problems and dont tamper with the car or you will continue to be exposed and lose clients. Class action lawsuit is on the way. I will update this everytime I deal with them. Be back in a week.

I Found His Cellular Phone Number

AUTHOR: Dawson - ()

Couldn't find an Update Report  (quote, unquote) link here. Just wanted to add this number where he can be reached at this time. 1-917-682- 8463. I want my money back. He will never make the necessary repairs to make the car safe to drive. I am doing that and saving recordings and receipts. Feel free to contact me.
