I was referred to Texas Auto Liquidators by a friend of a friend (who gets a commission from wholesalers when he refers them a buyer), i thought they would be legit but if i had done a little research and looked at reviews i would have been more leery these people have a bad reputation to say the least, and their not trying to improve upon it apparently.  I picked out a vehicle on their website and drove up there to check it out buy it and drive it back i had all my paperwork lines up told Greg Thompson who i dealt with at the dealership i would be there at 2pm the following day and he said it would be ready to go.  So i drive from Austin to Arlington and get there when i told him and first he says they are just finishing detailing the car for me, ok sounds good to me, about an hour later they come and say, that the battery in the car is dead and they had to take it to the VWagon dealership to have the computer reset and the battery fixed??? What?? now i'm getting nervous but i give them the benefit of the doubt plus its not a brand new car its a 2006, i still haven't seen the car at this point, so i got there at 2 and not until 7:30pm is the car back from the VW dealership, so i finally get to see the car and am just ready to go home, so against my better judgement i paid him for the car $10,995 and drive home.....this is friday night on Sunday, its a ripe 100 degrees in South Texas and my NEW cars air conditioning is not working at all:/  not a happy camper, i called Greg who assures me he will take care of it,( i took it to a shop here and they said the compressor had gone out along with 2 other parts) but Greg said i will have to drive it back to Arlington to let them fix it there, so my Dad drives the car up there early in the morning and they "fix" it and he drove it back at late that night, another day of our time wasted, thanks! The next day the A/C is still not working i take it to the shop and he said they put in a faulty compressor and not a VW part!! WTF?? I call Greg Again, and he assures me he will take care of it but he will have to mail me the part to Austin because they don't get their piece of s**t part discount here at the actual VW dealership, i tell him that it is going to cost me $350 to have the compressor they mail me installed and ask him if they are going to pay for it and he assures me that they will, i have also had to pay $150 for the air conditioning diagnostic to be done TWICE NOW! to conclude, i did receive the compressor in the mail and it worked but he never returned my call after that and never reimbursed me the $350 or the $150 that they cost me not to mention the days of wasted time driving the car up there for them to "fix" it and the 2 weeks of having a car without any A/C, the moral of the story my friends is BUYERS BEWARE!! IF YOU GO TO TEXAS AUTO LIQUIDATORS IN ARLINGTON, TX.

#1 Consumer Suggestion

CROOKS, SCAMMERS AND CON ARTISTS? ON THE INTERNET????!!!! OH, MY.

AUTHOR: Joe - (U.S.A.)

   MY ADVISE TO YOU WOULD BE TO GET YOUR CAR OFF OF CRAIGSLIST.COM LIKE I DID. I GOT A 1991 CADILLAC AND ALL IT NEEDED WAS A NEW RADIATOR, WATER PUMP, FOUR NEW TIRES AND I WAS GOOD TO GO. PAID $500. PUT IN ABOUT $300 WORTH OF PARTS AND LABOR MYSELF.

    IF YOU CAN'T DO THAT, YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER OFF BUYING A USED COP CAR AT TRAVIS USED CARS ON RIVERSIDE DRIVE IN AUSTIN,TEXAS. GOOD CONDITION AND EASY TO WORK ON SINCE THEY ARE USUALLY FLEET VEHICLES AND IT IS EASY TO GET PARTS IN STOCK FOR FLEET VEHICLES. THEY GO FAST TOO --WHICH I LIKE. THEY MIGHT HAVE MADE YOU A CASH DEAL... AND LESS REBUILDING. I LIKE THE CRIME SCENE VANS WHICH ARE USED TO CARRY FORENSICS EQUIPMENT AROUND AND DO NOT HAVE SERIOUS MILEAGE PROBLEMS. THAT WAY, IF YOU ARE EVICTED OR  LOSE YOUR JOB, YOU STILL HAVE A PLACE TO LIVE. (DO NOT BUY USED MEDICAL EXAMINER OR SEARCH AND RECOVERY VANS AS THOSE HAVE BEEN USED TO TRANSPORT CORPSES --UNLESS YOU LIKE GHOSTS. I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANY BUT WHY RISK IT?)

      AUSTIN,TEXAS IS THE HOME OF RIP-OFFS, CONS, SCAMS AND GET-RICH-QUICK SCHEMES.... EVEN WORSE THAN ARLINGTON, TEXAS. HOT CHECKS, YOU NAME IT....

       YOU SHOULD HAVE HAD THE GUYS FROM "LEMON BUSTERS" OR ANOTHER CERTIFIED MECHANIC CAR CHECKING SERVICE COME WITH YOU FOR A REASONABLE FEE TO CHECK THE CAR OUT FOR YOU IF YOU DON'T KNOW CARS!  FOREIGN CARS ARE EXPENSIVE TO REPAIR AND THE PARTS SOMETIMES TAKE WEEKS TO ARRIVE. YOU ARE BETTER SERVED WITH AN OLDER ( 1996) CHEVROLET CAPRICE OR CADILLIAC OR EVEN A LINCOLN CONTINENTAL OR AN OLDER CHEVROLET IMPALA BECAUSE THESE NEW HYBRIDS WERE RUSHED OUT BEFORE THE TECHNOLOGY COULD BE PROVEN AND ALL THE BUGS WERE WORKED OUT --AND THERE ARE TONS OF THEM . YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE IN A WRECK WITH THESE d**n CLOWN CARS --BAD VISIBILITY, YOU HAVE TO BE CUT OUT IF YOU ARE IN A COLLISION AND YOU BETTER PRAY THAT THE BATTERIES DO NOT EXPLODE AND SPILL BATTERY ACID ON YOU OR THAT NOTHING CATCHES ON FIRE WHILE YOU ARE PINNED IN.  CLOWN CAR VERSUS SEMI THAT COULD NOT SEE THE CLOWN CAR. NOT PRETTY.

         DO NOT BUY CARS ON THE INTERNET. EVER UNLESS YOU CAN SEE THEM AND TEST DRIVE THEM. ALL THE  USED CAR CROOKS ARE UNLOADING THEIR DOGS ON AN UNSUSPECTING PUBLIC THIS WAY. THE NICE CAR YOU SEE ON THEIR AD IS PROBABLY NOT WHAT THEY REALLY HAVE.  THEIR CONDITIONS OF SALES AND CONTRACTS ARE FULL OF BAD SURPRISES TOO.
         
          ALWAYS TEST DRIVE AND ALWAYS SEE THE VEHICLE THAT YOU ARE GOING TO BUY.

           YOU CAN NOT TRUST ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING JUST BECAUSE IT IS ON THE INTERNET. YOU SURE CAN'T SEE THE PERSON ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THAT COMPUTER AND YOU DON'T KNOW WHO THE HELL THEY ARE. DO YOU KNOW WHETHER OR NOT THE CAR IS STOLEN? DO YOU KNOW TO CALL THE POLICE OR CONSTABLE'S OFFICE AND TELL THEM YOU WANT TO BUY A CAR BUT YOU WANT TO CHECK WITH THEM AND SEE IF IT IS STOLEN AND GIVE THEM THE VEHICLE IDENTIFICATION NUMBER? DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHERE THAT IS?  THEY CAN SWITCH PLATES AND SOMETIMES THEY CAN SWITCH VEHICLE IDENTIFICATION NUMBERS AND IF THAT CAR IS FOUND IN YOUR PRESENCE YOU GO TO JAIL AND THE CAR IS SEIZED. YOU GET AN ARREST AND HAVE HELL GETTING IT EXPUNGED FROM YOUR RECORD IF CHARGES OF THEFT  AGAINST YOU ARE DROPPED ...

               I HOPE YOU DO NOT GET INTO TROUBLE AND BUY A PIECE OF CRAP JUNKER CAR FROM THE TRASH USED CAR CROOKS IN AUSTIN. THE ONLY LOT YOU CAN TRUST AND ONLY IF YOU CAN DO YOUR OWN WORK ---IS TRAVIS USED CARS-- I HAVE BOUGHT THREE CARS FROM THEM OVER THE YEARS.
