STAY FAR AWAY -- AUTO BY DESIGN, LLC is a shady business.
I purchased a 2005 Bentley Arnage from this dealer. I had been watching the on-line ad for this car for nearly a year. The price dropped from $58,790 to $41,790 which is when I entered into negotiations to purchase the Bentley. I asked questions about the condition of the vehicle and if there were any repairs made. I was assured there were NO repairs made to the Bentley with exception of replacing 2 batteries. Auto By Design, LLC even generated a Car Fax report giving to me showing the service history of the Bentley as an assurance no work had been done on the vehicle.
When the car arrived in California, there were problems reported to Auto By Design, LLC who ignored the complaints. This dealership sold a car in violation of Virginia Law that requires a dealer to comply with the mandatory annual inspection.
Upon inspection of the vehicle, it was determined to be UNSAFE to operate on the public highways! Auto By Design lied about repairs being, didn't comply with the mandatory vehicle safety inspection. The Bentley has cracked ball joints, a cracked sway bar, leaking thermostat, and leaking hydrolic fluids. The car could not even pass a smog inspection!
