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.
