We have been looking for a Lexus ES 350 around 07-09 years...all were too pricey but here. The price here was $3-4,000 less then any around within a 200 mile radius. Problem was that my husband didn't want to drive 2.5 hrs to check it out so I contacted our favorite dealership and they said they'd try to buy it, and resell it to us so we wouldn't have to go get it..(they knew they'd make money on our trade so it was worth it to them to do this to keep our business because we are repeat customers) Well, after a few days they hadn't gotten back to me so I called them and said.."Never mind, we are just going to take the long drive and check it out" Before we left that morning I had called Empire Automotive and told them that we were very interested and had a car to trade. I also stressed to them that it would be a MUST for the car to not need any work done to it because we wanted it that same day. (there have been times when we try out a car at any dealershp and it needs brakes..etc.)The salesman reassured me that it was ready to go, that they do not put junk on their lot and I would be surprised at how nice everything they have is. AT NO TIME DID HE SAY THEIR CARS WERE "WHOLESALE"/"AS IS".......it's not advertised as that on their site either. So we get there, test drove the car and loved it, besides it had a slight pull to the right and we wanted them to put better tires on it. When we sat down he offered us $2,300 less for our trade then 2 other dealerships recently had, and said that before we bought the car, they had to put it in their shop (this would take an hour) to fix some things totaling $1,465.00!!! Then he had (the worst excuse for a warrenty added on in there for an additional $1,500.00!!! Well, after 3 LONG hours of dickering, us almost getting up to leave 3-4 times....it seemed as though we were going to make a deal somewhere in the middle (I'm leaving out a bunch of stuff he said that didn't add up and confused us...but it's to much to type) we were sitting there coming close to a deal (still not where we wanted to be exactly) & our favorite salesman from back home called and asked if we had bought the car and I said "No, but we are in the middle of trying to make a deal." He said "DON'T BUY THE CAR!!!" I've checked the carfax record, it's been in 3 car accidents and the dealership has the worst reviews online that I have ever seen. He said, "I don't care where you buy a car, just don't from them, and not this one." I got off the phone and suddenly my gutt feeling now made sense. I turned down the deal in the making and said that this other dealership was going to give me much more for my trade. Empire THEN offered me over what I had originaly wanted for a trade, but refused to put tires on the car (which had dry rot) we ended up leaving and even though I loved the car, I'm glad we didn't buy it. The salesman was very nice, and new so I'm not sure how "innocent" he was in this, but things he said just didn't add up, and they false advertise. This dealership is SHADY....I would not go back for even a go-kart. Buyer BEWARE!!!!
