We purchased two vehicles from 4042 Motors on April 22, 2017. One we took home the same day, the second, a 1981 Corvette, we left to have their mechanic look at the air conditioning. We returned on April 29 to pick it up, and it suddenly had starting issues and kept turning off. Additionally when we got onto Hwy 42 and hit the speed limit after about 10 minutes, the passenger side t-top flew off and into the front of a Mack truck in the next lane, then going under the truck and getting run over.
I immediately called 4042 who said someone would call me on Monday, and of course heard nothing.
We filed a claim with our insurance company but they suspected it was a fraudulent claim because it was so soon after purchasing the vehicle. 4042 has done nothing to help. Regardless of the number of times we call, the person we need is unavailable. The owner is never there. A manager is never there.
A set of t-tops runs about $1700 shipped, and you can't buy just one. This is a huge expense and something that we should not be responsible for. 4042 was completely negligent in not making sure that the top latched safely before selling the car. We never touched it. In fact, the day we picked it up, I asked one of the guys how it worked and he came over and fiddled with it, and said, "there's a latch you pull under here and it releases it, and you just take it off." I don't know if he left it loose, or couldn't get it off, but he was the last to touch it.
The brakes are soft and squeaking on the car as well and are going to have to be looked at, another example of something that they probably put a bandaid on long enough to sell it.
The other vehicle we purchased possibly needs a new transmission. We've already had to get an alignment on it and it needs new rear tires because there's a worn spot on one of them. These were not things that were disclosed to us or things we could readily tell from a five minute test drive.
I don't recommend going to this place for anything. They should be ashamed of themselves. They certainly don't care about their customers.
