My mother needed a automobile. I contacted Joey Sharpels about a vehicle he had advertised on the internet. He said it was a good vehicle with no problems and I took him at his word.

He really taught me a thing about lyeing automobile salesmen!

My mother and I drove to Prattville on a cold morning to purchase the vehicle for her. We drove the car, which drove very well. The airconditioners appeared to "blow cold air on a cold morning"! Later I discovered it doesn't blow cold air on a hot morning. The car also came with tires that barely made it back to Baton Rouge ( realized we needed four tires) since the tires were dry rotted and then dressed to look good. When removing the hub caps, we discovered wheel locks and had been given no key.

I contacted Joey Sharpels and he would do nothing and I then understood what the LLC means behind the Thoroughbred Motors name.

They are dispicable

I wrote a bad review about my nightmare experience with him years ago but he managed to have it taken down so I have no faith in this site to tell the truth. He will harass you if he finds out who you are and you tell the truth about how horrible it is to deal with him and his business. Buyer beware!

I dont think anyone has to worry about these guys anymore, I found them rude, dismissive, for lack of a better word snobby. This attitude however was just a cover for a failing business. If you go to the pawn shop up the road they have a copy of a bounced check from Mr Joey Sharples and his dealership with the headline "DEADBEAT" and as I drove by today there was police crime scene tape all over the property, sealing it off at both ends. I dont intend to slander anyone but a fraud investigation would not shock me

We had a bad experience with Joey and Thoroughbred. We were trying to buy a Hyundai Tiburon that was advertised as having ABSOLUTELY no accident history. From our test drive there was an obvious problem with the right rear area. We took it the Hyundai dealer to get it inspected and found that the car had been wrecked, causing the problems. A Carfax report did not show the damage. When we told Joey about the inspection findings, all he was concerned about was that we kept the car too long. He even refused to look at the damage report from Hyundai. I guess he dosn't have to tell buyers it was wrecked if he didn't see it himself.

I would certainly not buy from them. My experience fit the stereotype of a sleazy used car dealer.

I live in Lansing, Michigan and recently was looking for a new - used car. I was looking for a supercharged Ford Mustang Cobra. I looked everywhere for an extremely nice Cobra without any accidents. I found one at Thoroughbred Motor Cars in Alabama. I sent an email and was called within about half an hour. Joe, one of the owners was super nice and helpful. I had never bought a car on the internet before let alone one I had never seen or driven. Long story short he made me feel very comfortable with the whole process. He made the arrangements to have the car delivered right to my house, amazing. I was extremely happy when the Cobra arrived. It was far batter than I ever expected. The entire process took a little over a week, and that was close to the holidays. I could not be happier with the car or the service. Top notch all the way - THANKS!!

Pros: Great car, great price, excellent customer service

I live in California, YES California. I found a car on the Thoroughbred Motor Cars website (2003 Porsche Boxster). I called and talked directly to Joey (who, Sabrina T. - just happens to be one of the OWNERS) and found him to be extremely helpful, courteous, and very polite. After about a 15 minute conversation, I decided to buy the car, sight unseen. The entire transaction was handled by Joey in a very professional manner. He helped me arrange shipping and made me feel very at ease with the idea of buying a Porsche, sight unseen. A little over a week later, my Porsche arrived at my front door - BEAUTIFUL! It was even nicer than Joey had described. I cannot begin to say enough good things about Thoroughbred Motor Cars and about Joey. This was the first time I had ever bought a car over the internet but it was a very pleasant experience. I have now bookmarked their website and check it periodically to see what fun and unique cars they have. I am always telling people about experience and how great it was. Some people can and will say bad things about everything, but I know from first-hand experience that this is a great place to do business.

POOR QUALITY & TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE! I bought a car from them recently and upon arriving home found out both brake lights had burned out and the rear window wiper blade was missing. Over the next two weeks had to have it serviced sevral times with the latest thing being having to get the A/C system completely replaced! I emailed them several times with no response. I called and spoke with Joey Sharples and he tried to turn everything around on me saying I SHOULD have noticed all of those things and that I was paying to much for service (two times at the Kia dealership close to where I work and the A/C with a small mechanic shop). The mechanic who replaced the A/C said he had never seen so much metal in a condenser. Mr. Sharples also said that I shouldn't email that I should have called as they have 3 phone numbers and all he does all day is answer phones. I didn't call asking for money I just wanted to give him feedback on my experience and the car itself. After talking to him for a few minutes all he did was argue with me and hardly let me get a word in edge wise. I finally hung up after much frustration and next time will be talking with the owner about the bad attitude of his employee.

I have bought a total of 3 cars from Thoroughbred so far. NO, they are not like your average dealer. They do not run out to you the second you get out of your car - I hate that. They let you look and take your time. They have very nice used cars and their prices are so much less than other places. I like the way they do business and that is why I do not buy anywhere else. Like I said, I have bought 3 cars from them and still have 2 (my son wrecked one). They do not have a super huge selection like some other places but what they do have is very nice. I recommend them to everyone and know a lot of people from my church that have bought from them as well. I like them very much and will continue going there when I need a car.

Well, to prevent anyone from wasting time stopping there. I stopped by to look at a truck, 2000 F250. The locks didn't work and the power seat didnt work. After a short conversation with Joey, i knew i didn't want to do business there. His comment was " I don't have any perfect vehicles". Well, i'm not spending my money on trash. Old or new, if they're selling, it should be in "decent" condition. This truck was $12,250.00 with burn holes in the seat and the other problems i mentioned. Anyway, what turned me off the most is that i could tell that service after the sell would be crap. He has not even sold me a vehicle and is already rude! That is the last time "I" will ever stop there. Just glad i didn't buy from them!!!

I think it is funny to read reviews from people who have obviously NEVER done business at Thoroughbreds. I have bought two cars form there and I know just how nice they are. No, they do not come out the second you drive on the lot. I like that though. This is a very nice family owned dealer with nice people to work with. Take it from me, I really HAVE done business with the Sharples (father & son I think) and they are super nice and very easy going.

I recently purchased a vehicle from Thoroughbred Motor Cars and would like to comment negatively on their service. My vehicle had numerous issues within the first couple days of purchase including breaking down on me twice in the first week of purchase. However, after contacting the gentleman I have received nothing but sorry excuses and little help. The gentleman knew I was an American soldier and still insisted to rip me off by selling a low quality vehicle to my family with no guts to back it up. The vehicle broke down twice in the four times I drove it and the minor touch-ups that were obviously made to last long enough for a test drive are starting to wear off. Anyone who is considering purchasing a vehicle from a man named Mr. Joey is HIGHLY discouraged.

I bought a car from Thoroughbreds about a year ago. It has been a great car, especially for the price. You will be amazed at quality vs price. The staff is great as well. They are a NON-pressure facility which is what I like most about business'.
