If I could give no stars, I would. I hope someone from sale auto sees this. I bought a 02 Honda S2000 from them back in 08. I traded my civic that I got from Bob's in Greenville. They seriously ripped me when I bought this car. First thing they did was steal my disk golf disks that were in the trunk of my civic. I came back to get them but they said there was nothing in the trunk? bs. About 2 weeks after I had the S2000, my transmission had some serious problems. I basically had to make them take it back and get it fixed. They had the transmission rebuilt. I should have known by then that they would never help me out ever again and they only wanted my money. I had an incident with the car about 2 years later. The engine had to be replaced and my insurance went up so I had to stop driving it. I continued to make payments on it even though I was not driving it. After the amount I owed was low enough I decided to put it up for sale. After the engine got replaced the check engine light was on. The mechanic told me that it was probably because oil was burning off from when the engine was swapped. Turns out that wasn't the case. Sale Auto of Kinston sold me my S2000 without a catalytic converter. A felony. A federal crime! I had been driving this car FOR 2 YEARS!!!! I called the guy that sold it to me, Derrick. Watch out for this one. He's very deceiving. I called him and told him about it and that I needed to sell the car because I had a buyer ready but I can't get the car inspected because the car had no cat. He told me he wasn't at work at the time but he would call me back the next day. Well guess what? he never called. Didn't call the next day either. I called the DMV inspector and told him about it. Basically I was screwed because there was no way for me to prove it without getting the guy that traded it originally in big trouble. After some research I found out that there was a test pipe on the car with an o2 simulator sensor that fools the onboard diagnostics into thinking there is a catalytic converter. It is to make the car perform stronger because there is no resistance in the exhaust from a cat. So I went ahead a bought a catalytic converter and put it back on the car. Do yourself a favor and stay away from Sale. You may have a good experience but with people that would do this, can you afford to be one of the customers that gets royally screwed?

I just bought a 07 ridgeline from them for $22000. The next day I put a cd in the player to find out it doesn't work! When I called the salesman back he said they couldn't do anything for me cause they sold me the vehicle for such a low price! And if I had paid more for the vehicle they could have helped me out. ( bull crap, they would have said that no matter how much I paid) so if you buy from them test EVERYTHING!!!! Check for nails in the tires, volume buttons work, doorhandles open doors, seats recline, etc. I know it sounds stupid but if u have an issue after the purchase they won't help!!!

my exspereince with sale auto mall was less than stellar. there was confustion and imcompotence at every twist and turn. the place is so large and so many people work there nobody knows what the hell is going on ever. but i did get a nice car at a good price and they did what they said they would as far as the due bill was concerned. so if u dont mind dealing with some dumb a's head on down to sale! i dont recomend it...

I have been here on several ocassions looking for a car. They have a huge selection and friendly staff. When I lived in this area we would make the 30 minute trip to check out their inventory when car shopping.
