Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Purchased a car 3 weeks ago for my 16 year old daughter and was told the car was looked over by a mechanic and there are no problems.  He also said it came with a 3 month/4,500 mile warranty.  When I called to tell him the check engine light came on and now it wont even start. We tried jump starting and nothing.  He said buyer beware next time by a new car.

Great way to run a business.  I would not recommend purchasing a car from a person who wont even back of the warranty that came with the car. Even if it had no warranty you would think you would be more helpful then scamming a 16 year old out of money.  As he said buyer beware. We did not even put 100 miles on this car.

mike is a scam

AUTHOR: donna - (USA)

I purchased a 2000 blazer from Ace back in May of 2012, and I took the blazer to a repituable mechanic and had it overlooked, the blazers transfer case was bad, the differential was leaking, the air compressor wasnt working, (Mike put freeon in it saying its probably low because of the age of the vehicle) I did believe that, however, it was aa saturday when I purchase this vehicle. I called him Sunday left a message about the 4x4 not working, Monday I took the vehicle to the mechanic and thats when I got the list of things wrong with the vehicle.

Mike told me "Buyers Beware" I believe he scams people, I let him know within 24 hours what was wrong with the truck.
The truck didnt even come with a spare tire.

All I know is, I tell people not to buy from him. Illinois lawmakers need to shut places like his down.

He and his wife are shadey people.

Please, watch out for them.

You misrepresent your self

I like how you tell me don't respond to your reply and to call you.  I did call you and you told me "buyer beware".  Is that your version of helping.  The warranty would not cover anything and it has now been in the shop two more times.  Please don't beleave this man did anything to try and help.  He had his wife call and tell me that I had a warranty to call them.  Buyer Beware just as he said.  Take your business down the street.

The other complaint referenced was reviewed by The Attorney General Office and The BBB.Both parties provided their documents and our company was found to have made a good faith and reasonable effort to resolve the issue.Furthermore,the accusations stating we roll back odometers and use different vin#'s to sell a vehicle were unfounded.The case was ultimately closed with no negligence on our part. Our company has served this community for more then 3 yrs and we have sold over 750 vehicles.To our potential consumers reading these reviews,please do not hesitate to call us and further discuss these claims.After all,there two sides to every story.
