Complaint Review: Copat Inc.
Copat Inc. FLOOD DAMAGED VEHICLE SCAM!!! Dallas Texas
I have read a few of the reports on this site and some sound valid and others just plain silly!
One guy claims all you need is common sense. I realize that the cars that are for sale through
auto auction companies such as Copart are in some sort of need of repair, I get it! What I don't
get is how they can sell a car with a clean title, list the primary damage as mechanical. I recently
bought 4 cars from Copart through an online broker. I recieved one of my cars at 11:40pm and
I knew it wasn't running so I had it towed to the Toyota Dealership the next morning at 7:30am.
The car a 2013 Toyota Prius I paid a total of $13,760. for upon inspection by the factory trained
technicians they found the car has recieved flood damage! water was found in the engine, the transaxle
There was mud coming from the air vents, among other places. I contacted the company and they told
me their inspection revealed no such findings. However, they did admit by law they would have been
required to SALVAGE the vehicle if there is proof of flood damage. I contacted the Regional Manager and
his position was , "as is where is all sale are final!" They obviously don't care about consumer protection
laws and true disclosure. They don't honor repeat clients neither. ( I have purchased a total of 7 cars from
them. The first 3 cars were ok and just as discribed on the site. The last 4 were all completely made to look
decent on the website but should have clearly been SALVAGED!!!! I don't know how these cars have clean
carfax reports and titles???? Now I've had to hire an attorney and threaten filing suit in order to get some of
my money back!!!! I have 2 cars that cost more to repair than it does to replace!! The rule of law in the U.S.
is fading and companies like Copart are taking advantage of this grey market/ area!!! I remember 20-25
years ago a company would have simply acknowledged their mistake and refunded your money now days
they are worst than Gangbangers!!! because you don't know if the law will ever catch them????
