My Review Of K2 Auto:
First of all, the purpose of sharing my experience is to ensure others are aware and informed about what could happen to them if they choose to do business with K2. In February 2013, I purchased a 2003 BMW X5 from K2 and worked directly with Mike. Mike is a very energetic and comes across very trust worthy; however, that is not who he really he is---he is actually the sterotypical "used car sales man". He uses his charismatic personality to build your trust and ultimately you will be sorry because you should NEVER TRUST MIKE. His only goal is to sell you a car at the highest price and he withholds key information. For example, I asked Mike if he would run an Edmunds report in front of me to verfiy the value of the car...he did but he failed to inform me that the car was in an accident; therefore, reducing the price of the car. I ended up losing over $2,000 because I failed to run my own car fax report.
Secondly, speaking of car fax reports---PLEASE RUN A CAR FAX REPORT on all of Mike's cars because 80% of them are cars that have been in accidents and he purchases them from the dealer (my car was purchased from Motorwerks). And he makes out like a bandit if you don't run the report.
Thirdly, I also asked to have the car inspected--he recommended I use South Town Auto Imports. BIG MISTAKE!!!!! Please don't use the car repair shop next door---they are essentially in bed together. I thought Nick at South Town was an upstanding guy but I was wrong again. He gave the car a clean bill of health only for me to find out the car needs struts only 2 months later--REALLY~~~.
Finally, I highly advise against using K2 as a vendor---they have proven that they are untrustworthy, dishonest and don't care about the needs of the customer. For Mike and K2 the only thing that matters is the all mighty dollar. I am confident they don't have repeat customers because who would go back to a place that treats them less than a human being.
I wish you luck on your next car purchase and hope you will think twice about using K2---there are so many other upstanding dealers out there.
