I purchased a car from Durrett Motors on July 2009 and was assured their vehicles went through an inspection with AutoExam and where free of major damages and defects. I was first of all limited to about 3 cars on their lot because of my credit situation, I test drove all three of them and wasn't convinced and wanted to go home and think about it before I purchased there.
Then Maria Aguilar, their General Sales Manager stepped in and pretty much made me feel like I was worthless and would not get help anywhere else; so pretty much I needed to pick one of the three cars and buy from them. Feeling like no one else would help me, I ended up choosing a 2002 Nissan Altima for a total price of $15,189.16; including finance charges and my down payment of $2,000.00. I have been paying on my car for over a year now and I took it to get appraised, because I wanted to maybe trade it in and have found out it has been wrecked and there has been extensive body and frame repairs and it's only worth $2,000.00. The next day I paid to pull the Car Fax myself and it clearly states there the vehicle has been in a wreck that was reported on 04/18/2006.
Durrett Motors never disclosed to me my vehicle had been through a wreck. I am extremely upset and feel that Durrett Motors has been stealing my hard earned money. I quickly contacted Durrett Motors and spoke to Maria Aguilar and she first tells me that doesn't sound right and hungup on me right away. Then she calls me back a day later and says that I bought my vehicle As Is, I said yes As Is means that if any mechanical or electrical issues arise they are not responsible.
I also emailed Mr. and Mrs. Durrett and have not heard anything since. I contacted the BBB and are in the process of obtaining an Attorney.
Durrett Motors has committed Fraud by not disclosing the Pre Existing condition on the vehicle I bought from them. If I would have known the vehicle had been through a wreck, I would have never purchased it and would have gone elsewhere. It's unfortunate that because of our credit situation we are belittled and placed into a trap. Not only did Durrett Motors sell me a piece of ***, they are wanting me to pay almost Ten Times what the car is really worth.
I do not recoomend Durrett Motors to anyone out there.
There are so many dealerships with higher quality cars that are willing to work with individuals with not so good credit.
