My experience was almost identical to the poster above in that too that it was auction and when I also put $1,000 down for a car that cost $2.000, when it was time to pay i got hit with 2 surprise fees. 1 was Auctioneer's fee of $376, the 2nd was a ""destination fee"" of $149.00. Not only that I had to hang around the lot for 5 1/2 hours waiting for their bank to get back to me about my credit! And get this, when I turned the car on the engine light was on and the salesman guaranteed me if would go off on the drive home. Stupid me believe him and it would up being 2 problems with one being a transmission problem. I brought it back and they were willing to put a new used transmission in for $2,000! I said no thanks and they also refused to give me my money back. I got the trans fixed in my hometown for $537. The other problem cost me $300 to fix.
Stay away from these people!!!
