DONT GO HERE... and if you do HAVE YOUR OWN MECHANIC LOOK AT THE CAR!!!!!\n\nWent to purchase an an SUV. The salesmen talked his mechanics and his vehicles up and made me feel very comfortable. The car ran fine, but we still wanted it checked by an outside mechanic. \n\nThe car had so many issues with transmission to oil leaking everywhere that the mechanic wasnt even sure where the leak was he said to run away from this car. We brought it back and the salesmen pretty much said our mechanic was wrong, but he would have his guys check it out anyway. \n\nHe called us the next day and said everything our mechanic said his mechanic confirmed all the issues and it had too many problems so they were not going to sell the car... a few hours later it was online with the price reduced by $500!!!! BTW- this was still just at the kbb price in PERFECT condition. Just awful that they are now going to sell a car with so many issues to some unsuspecting person... RUN AWAY from these people... they know the problems and hide it from the consumers!!!

Recently I bought a Mustang convertible from Colonial Auto Sales with a ""50/50 warranty."" After the first rain (several days into owning it), the trunk interior was drenched and water was pooled at the bottom of the trunk and behind the back seat (update: floor in back is not wet as well). When I reported the leakage and other unrelated defects (overhead lights did not turn on, lighter did not work) to Colonial, the head mechanic dismissively told me that he owned Mustangs and that ""all Mustang convertibles leak."" \n\nClearly living with a profusely leaking roof and wet trunk is not a viable long-term solution. Resolved to find one, I contacted numerous people including a trusted mechanic, the Ford Corporation, and a local auto glass company. Many calls and correspondences later, I was recommended to an auto restorer who appraised the repairs to be around $1,500 (cost of new top installed). The restorer said it was highly unlikely these problems developed in the short time I owned the car. \n\nI went to Colonial to speak with them in person. The salesman (Dan Brown) and mechanic looked over the estimate and told me bluntly me they wouldn't pay for the repairs. What about the ""50/50 warranty?"" This did not apply to the convertible top I was told. Furthermore, I was told that even if they did honor the warranty, they would never pay $1,500 to have the top replaced. I was livid. I felt like I was ripped off. \n\nUndoubtedly the car was defective before I purchased it. What are the odds that an 8 year old convertible never previously leaked and then suddenly began leaking profusely after the first rain following my purchase? Even assuming this statistical improbability did occur and the restorer is wrong and all the considerable wear and tear and other defects (including shrinkage and mildew) did occur in the frame of a couple of days that I owned the vehicle, why did Colonial sell a car notorious for leaking in the first place (IE ""all Mustangs convertibles leak"")? \n\nColonial's solution? They offered to buy the car back. Also, they contacted a restorer who supposedly quoted them $800 to replace convertible top. At this point I was conciliatory, but still disappointed- I really like the car. Why won't they compromise and pay even half of their preferred top restorer's quoted price (=$400)? \n\nColonial Auto Sales may seem like an honest business, but numbers don't lie. Consider the following: If Colonial repurchases the car, they will obviously need to repair the roof in order to resell it. Let's give them the benefit and say they are able to permanently repair the top for $800. This still leaves them with $400 less than if they had honored their dubious ""50/50"" warranty and paid $400 for permanent repairs. There is only one logical conclusion: They won't repair the top permanently. They will apply some cheap, temporary, band-aid solution and sell the car to the next unsuspecting customer. (There is no other logical conclusion that doesn't severely call into question Colonial's integrity.)\n\nPlease, if you must buy here, BEWARE. Get all warranty details down to minutiae. If your car isn't one of the ""qualified units"" to receive the 12 month ""bumper to bumper"" warranty, STAY AWAY (there's likely a good reason it doesn't qualify). Have your own mechanic thoroughly inspect their cars. Don't allow dubious idyllic (perfect) reviews lull you into complacency- defects that should be glaring will be missed by you and their mechanics (ie defective overhead lights, defective cigarette lighter, defective convertible top, etc.). Know that in the end, you'll be the one stuck with disappointment and/or costly repairs. Welcome questions: Brian at BGabes27 'at' Gmail

I bought a Metallic blue Mercury Sable Stationwagon from Ralph and his great staff back in June when I was unemployed and needed good reliable used transportation to look for jobs and take classes in Bethlehem, PA. I got a really good price for the car and for my trade in. I name my cars, So I traded my worn out Buick Century stationwagon named Henry [kinda like Ol' John ""Henry"" for the sable that I named ""Sampson"" He doesn't have hair and neither do I but the power he possesses makes me comfortable in knowing he will be around awhile if I take care of him. Thank You Ralph and your staff for giving me such good personal service. I will recommend you to friends the same way I heard about Colonial Auto from other friends. Thanks
