I went to Pinellas Auto brokers three times looking for a safe car for myself and my new born son. I spoke with three different salesmen including Jason, Brian, and another who called himself DJ or some initials. I asked for details on a couple vehicles that I was comparing. They all told me and my witness: "all of our cars are checked by our mechanics before being placed on our lot." "We dont sell cars that have any problems; we send them to auction" "this one is really good, a great choice for you." "If anything goes wrong we will fix it for you etc..." These were all lies.
The small SUV I bought sounded good during the short test drive but began loudly knocking on the way home. I took it to a mechanic who informed me that the engine was blown and that some sort of heavy oil and/or sealant had been put in the engine. Apparently this is a trick shady people use to defraud buyers. The next business day I had the SUV towed back to them. They got all nervous and lied about everything then claimed they were going to look at it and fix it for days. Finally they admitted the engine was blown but refused to fix it or refund me. Brian even had the nerve to lie and say "maybe it's the just the starter wana buy a starter!" trying to scam me out of even more money! I am suing of course. If you had a similar experience and want to join a class action suit against them contact me below.
