When we checked out a 2006 Chevy Malibu here - it looked great - drove great on the test run, and it was priced for about $5,000.
As soon as I drove it off the lot (after I filled it up, mind you -- it was left on E for a reason) it had issues. It began to make strange noises coming from what seemed to be the drivers front side under the wheel. I took it straight away to a tire place across the street and they told me that whoever sold it to me replaced half of what needed to be replaced and left the rest to us. We signed a "buy as is" contract so we (my dad & I) couldn't go back and complain.
Several months later now, I'm STILL having issues with the car. I've had the breaks changed (which were almost out) as well as those things near the tire replaced. It's left me stranded several times - and yet when I first got it - it seemed fine. The whole dang computer is having issues... and the guy who worked on it informed us that it was in a rather serious wreck that could have triggered the whole onset of the problems. There are also RECALLS that had been put out for this particular model that could have been fixed before being sold - that were not fixed. More time lost for me.
DO NOT BUY FROM THESE PEOPLE. THEY SEEM FRIENDLY BUT THEY WILL CHEAT YOU OUT OF YOUR MONEY. They didn't have a lot of answers to questions my dad had either. Their "I don't know" - I'm sure, wasn't one of ignorance.
