I want to thank Nancy and I G. for their review. My husband and I are looking to re-establish and we were thinking of going to Paul Blanco. The reason people need to re-establish are for mistakes made financially or unforseen issues. To put people in these situations of payments they can't afford and cars twice the price, well, doesn't that just make it worse? If you want to make sure those cars are paid for, and you really want to help re-establish people, wouldn't it be more realistic to not take advantage of people? I'm so thankful for those reviews because we don't need more trouble, we need to make it right. Our situation doesn't mean it's okay to destroy people if you claim you can help.

Totally scam and rip off!!!!! I am sure everyone who has purchased a vehicle from this place has been ripped off. Those with satisfactory reviews probably don't even know it and has been blind sided as well. Being at your weakest with having less than perfect credit and hearing you've been approved when you've been denied elsewhere; you'll definitely almost think you come across a great deal! NOT!!! I admit, we were stupid to have not caught on. They will charge/finance you a vehicle that is well over priced for the worth of the vehicle price, especially being that most (maybe all) are previously used rental vehicles and "sold as is"...( previously used rental cars are always sold under priced due to its status). They will rip you off. Just because you have less than perfect credit doesn't mean you should pay almost double in pricing. (And this is the vehicle price alone, NOT with financing interest included) Look elsewhere when purchasing a vehicle, despite your poor credit rating!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From the beginning, I was greeted in a very warm matter. I was quickly seated with a salesperson who was very friendly. During the process of financing, there were many options available and the sales manager helped find the perfect bank to finance me and my family. The down payment wasn't a problem because they even offered aid to help get financing. Once I chose the vehicle I fell in love with, I was quickly financed for it and now I am here righting this review. It's good to know a car dealership is going to treat you like family instead of a lot of greedy sales people like at other dealerships. I HIGHLY recommend Paul Blanco's to anyone who is looking for quality and good ethics. Thanks Paul blanco's!

Well I knew I had challenged credit, hearing the wonderful advertising Paul blanco has excessively running on all radio stations convinced me to go apply for a loan to restablish my credit. Fresh Start sounded right so me and my husband was pre-approved online and set up an appt. We were put in our first car that same day. I put a 2000 down payment down and I knew my interst was high but that was fair my credit was challenged. I got a call from the dealership a week later that the loan didnt go through and I had to get the car back. Fair, I went down and they said I can qualify for another loan with another bank but the interest would be higher 23% and they upgraded me to a more expensive car. I needed a car desperately so I agreed at that rate and a high payment. I figured I could stick it out and pay the payments and refinance in 8mos to get my payments lower and it would help my credit. Ok, I agreed loved the car we were happy! I reiceved a call 20 days later and they told me that the car loan was rejected and in order to keep the car I had to pay an additonal 2000 and knowing this I freaked! Who has that money at the snap of the finger? Seriously, we decided to not do the deal because it would have meant a 600 dollar payment or more with 25% interests that was not a good choice for us. We agreed to return the car. I paid a 1000 cash payment and they deducted 1000 from my debit 2 days after they knew the deal was no good! My complaint is I recieved a check for 1000 I was charged to cash it ( I gave them cash) didnt complain! But yet to this day have not recieved my reverse charge of 1000 back into my account! I called they have the car I signed the realease on the vehicle and they have no explation? Well, my advice be careful! I am praying I get my 1000 back? I have gone rounds with the bank and we are still waiting. I realize people in desperate need have to suffer the consequences but please we are still people with dignity! I learned from this and the false advertisement is convincing! Im not one to complain, this was two cars I went through with paul blanco and I still dont have my money! Im thankful there are dealerships that work with you with challenged credit. Be aware, Im not saying they werent nice but this was the most inconvenience in my life! Good Luck if you go there! Hopefully you have a better experience!

I went in to Paul Blanco yesterday and was helped out right away with no appointment. I worked with a salesman named Hector, very attentive young man.The process took a while but my saleman was kind enough to update and explain to me everything that was occuring.I am 100% happy with the customer there,they even bought my family lunch which made me feel that I was important.I purchased a Nissan Altima 2011 very few miles and I am very happy with my new car! Paul Blanco God bless you,Thank you!

They provide you with quality cars and quality service. My credit is not the greatest but I was able to get a nice care. The place has a lot of salesman that are eager to help you get the car you can afford. If you have good or excellent credit you could go somewhere else but my credit is not! It lives up to its name FRESH START Program.

My fiance needed a car and she called Paul Blanco Company. They called her back telling her that she's approved for a $10,000 loan with $500 down. She told Alma (Paul Blanco Employee) that she doesn't have the money to put down, and told my fiance to come in anyway. When we got there on 2/3/12 , the person who's helping us (Fred) seems like he's having a bad day and i can tell he's an a**hole already co'z the way he talks to us, seems like he doesn't wanna help us. He checked my fiance's credit. He went to the back office to get the paperwork with my fiance's credit history, we both know that she has a bad credit already (thats why we went to them) but still he pin point it one by one in front of her making her feel like sh*t ,but i still let it go. Then he asked us how much can we pay, i told him no more than $200, then he says "what car can you buy for $200 a month?" i'm thinking WTF!? I'm a hearing what i'm hearing? then he went back to the back office and waited for 15 minutes and he came back telling us "Sorry we don't have a car for you"...I said "it's ok" keeping my cool and we left..We went to CARMAX and we got our car with warranty and most of all less hassle, the person helped us (Bill) at CARMAX is truly professional and treat you with respect..I would highly recommend them, so don't settle for Paul Blanco coz it's BS people. Fresh start program my ass..

I have been following comments and reviews on this place for about a year now before I take my poor credit down there I wanted to see what people had to say. I was very irresponsible with my credit at 18-22. Now at 25 I'm ready to clean things up BUT I will NOT be visiting this dealership. I'd like to know where Bill B. took his son (down the street). I don't want something I'm going to have a bunch of problems with so...anyone know some dealers that will work with poor credit, $40k income and decent (2500) down payment?

His radio ads are very convincing. So much so, that I had my son call them before we went so they could discuss his down-payment situation and pre-qualification info. They told him he had very good credit and financing would be no problem. Well, when we got there we played the typical "I have to check with my manager" game with the sales rep over the down-payment. 30 minutes later we were told that wouldn't work and the same sales rep had the nerve to tell me if his daughter asked him for down-payment help, he wouldn't hesitate. Not wanting to get arrested for assault, we left, without looking at even one vehicle. My son later bought a very nice Volvo from a small dealer up the street with NO down, a low monthly. This dealership is the reason people use Car Max and Craigslist.

I just purchased a car from there last week! I went to three other places in Sacramento and no one would finance me because of my low credit score. Scott was my salesman and he worked with me on my monthly payments. He was very professional and courteous. If it wasn't for Paul Blanco's, I would still be taking the bus to and from work!

I was very hopeful about purchasing a car through Paul Blanco but was treated very poorly and left in tears with no car (this was last year). Sales person Ernie showed no enthusiasm whatsoever, was insulting about my poor credit rating, offered me cars totally unlike what I was looking for, and basically told me that "beggars can't be choosers." Well, we CAN choose our car dealers and I would never recommend Paul Blanco to anyone.

I used to work for Mr. Blanco at Paul Blanco Chevrolet. Sure there are some sales people who do not care. I was always thinking of my customer first. While I was employed at his dealership. He would come out to work with a customer to ensure they were being treated fairly and professional. Remember those who live in glass houses should not throw stones. Remember everyone has issues and our biggest one is trying to help the less fortunated. Mr Blanco, is trying to help you.

I had surgery a few years ago as a result of an accident while on Sac State's campus (not my fault,) and due to medical bills, had to file bankruptcy. I've been rebuilding my credit since, and recently my 1999 Chrysler began running poorly, so I went online to PaulBlanco.com and was approved for their "fresh start" program.

The first salesman told me 1)I needed my male friend (who happened to be with me) to co-sign because he must have money; 2) after reviewing my bank account, asked me what I spend my money on, and 3) asked me if I could drive a stick-shift, then answered himself with a "no." (I can.)

The second salesman had me test drive a car they said I qualified for, but as soon as we got back, they said I didn't qualify for it, and switched me for a Ford Taurus. After I drove it and agreed, they put $1,000 down payment thru on my credit card, THEN came back with a different Ford Taurus and said they "accidentally" had the VIN Number wrong, and tried to switch me to this car with an additional 45,000 miles on it, after charging my credit card for the down payment.

I explained that this seemed very much like "bait and switch" they laughed and said I could have the first Ford Taurus for another $750.

I asked the Sales Manager for the General Manager, and he said "you don't need anyone but me, honey."

I am of the believe that Paul Blanco worked hard for his reputation of helping others get decent cars even at high interest rates, but I find it difficult to believe that he encourages such dishonesty and discrimination.

The other reviews on this website are completely false! I went all over town trying to get a car and no one would help me until I went to Paul Blanco's. I have two repos, and the other dealerships told me that was too many to get financed. I called Paul Blanco's and someone helped me fill out the application over the phone. When I came in for my appointment, I was nervous that it wasn't going to work-BUT THEY WORKED WITH ME!! If it wasn't for them, I would be taking public transportation all over town. Paul Blanco's is a great place to get a vehicle!

first of all i work at a different car lot in stockton ca. banks do charge bank fees to give out high risk loans. they range from 10percent to 30 percent of the amount financed depending on the situation (cash income, how many repos,collections,etc, the worst the credit sitiuation the more bank fee.example sale price 10,995 plus fees. after taxes is 12,100 give or take minus 2000 down payment is 10,100 amount financed. now 25% of that is 2,525 dollar fee the discount bank charges. so it is true ,now acting rude and misleading people is wrong. its better to shoot straight. you get more with honey than vinegar. with $1500 to $2000 down and you are working you will qualify for a loan for a nice car or suv!!!!!call me at 209 9934876 cesars program

Lies, Lies and more Lies, . They misrepresent themselves in every area. Their commercial states that u get a live loan specialist on the phone and u get a person that said come in your qualified for 10 ,000 dollar loan and when u get there they tell u need a co signer ,well if u have a reputable co signer then u don't need to go to Paul blanco . The wait and service took hours for them to check this out or even get to us as they tell everyone to come in and then sort them out later. They also said 500.00 down was fine on the phone and when in reality they insist on the 3,000. This is first grade deception and I can't believe it's legal. Someone should shut these people down permanently and soon. Went over to Folsom Lake Ford and had no problem getting into a very nice car so I don't understand why this second chance thing they try and push could not and would not work. Never waste your time or money on this place . There are others if u just shop around that will give you a car or truck and this kind of abuse should not be tolerated.

Please call Suzie Friday at KCRA 3! She is going to need all your stories and reviews!!!!!
I bought an '03 Jeep Sport Wrangler from Paul Blanco and what a total rip off. They gave it to me with the " back window" Duct taped because it was a home made piece of plastic bolted to the zip in window frame. I told them I needed a 4 wheel drive because I live in the snow. First day at home the snow soon melted to water and quickly filled my new Jeep! Then the mechanic that helped me to get a new top(because he knew they had done me dirty) was fired! For trying to do the right thing(sorry). Then with the new top and canvass doors I thought I would be all good. But at first attempt to open the window it came off in my hands. Then the rains came. Now the rain goes right in the doors, will this Jeep ever be dry?

I had the worst experience ever with Paul Blancos. I spoke with one of their reps on the phone to make sure I was qualified before I drove 3 hours. I was told to bring a list of items with me, which i did. I told him I had $500 down and he said that was fine but if I could bring more that would make my payment less. Got there, no one knows what is going on, cars shown had mold on back seat, bumper completely falling off one and another had 87k miles. A far cry from the Honda or Toyota I said I would like and told, "no Problem" come on down. I was told that without the min $1000 down I only qualifed for this one car and it was garbage. Ask how much, no idea, interest rate, no idea. They know nothing....right!!
They don't clean the cars, or care about them, treat you like scum!

I bought a car at the end of the day and it had NO gas in it, they didnt have time for me to test drive it and two weeks after I bought my 2008 avenger it wouldnt start! The car still had papers from the previous owners in it and wasnt even cleaned before I purchased it!!! They took it back to fix it but the problem is still occuring and now the car is still not starting due to a faulty alarm sysytem and Paul Blancos has yet to call and address any issues with me... Very dissappointed they sold me a lemon.

Paul Blanco sold me a car I loved at first and within the first week sensors began going off in my car sayin engine oil pressure low stop engine & my check engine light came on. I took it in 2 or three time they kept saying nothing was wrong it was just a bad sensor and they did something to make the light go off but it came back on and the sensor started going off all the time. I tryed to take it back & I was told my 30 days was up & they would do nothing for me but it was only a sensor, so I believed them because im a woman who knows nothing about cars! 3 months later the sensor still dinging all day long but i noticed i was low on oil so i had it checked I have only had the car 6 months at this point jiffy lube told me I have a leak in the main seal some kinda mounting plate near the filter somewhere but i'm losing about a quart of oil a day. I've been trying to get a manage to call me back which hasnt happend still and I have a full time job plus im a full time student so time to deal with them giving me the run around is not on my side!!! If i dont hear something by tomarrow I will be reporting them to the BBB and I just might call Curtis ch13 news they got me stuck making $400 payments & my registration was only good for 3 months & they are trying to charge me $232 for it & it was up in October DMV wants another $232 to register it again... how do you get charged the same amount twice in one year?? F*** Paul Blanco that was the worst choice I ever made in my life was signing with them & the waranty was way to high & they wouldnt include it even tho I gave them $2,250 down that was all I had I'm a single mom with 2 kids just trying to make it..tryed to get a car off the lot to build my credit & it's about to make it worse NEVER BUY A CAR FROM PAUL BLANCO!!!!

I am writing this letter to tell EVERYONE how mad I am that PAUL BLANCO for selling me a car that the transmission is going out. When we bought the car (Which I loved) they could not wait to sell us the car. We went through them because we wanted to get our credit better but three to four months into having the car the transmission is going out. I called Chris who is the auto service and he said he could do nothing for me because I did not buy the extended warranty which was over $300 which at the time I did not have. Now I have a car that does not work. I TOTALL believe that they knew more about there cars then then they tell the public. I believe because a transmission is a big deal in a car that they should have not sold the car to anyone.

I would have to totally agree with the comments on Paul Blanco's manager and staff - they walk around like they're better than anyone else - the commercials are just a lot of hot air - stay away from Paul Blanco and go to a reputable and professional dealership.

OK so My girlfriend was looking into getting another car, she called Paul Blanco they said that they would finance her. So we drive a few hours and when we get there we are greeted by a receptionist who was very nice. She takes us to a Man who will help us with getting a loan. This individual who does this for a living didn't communicate with us at all, he had to go in the office like five times. We then get the General manager who has a bad tan and walks around like he's better than everyone.
After telling them that she will have $3000 down they quote her at 24% Apr and a payment of $399 a month for 48 months. Upon leaving the General Manager is telling everyone "well what did they expect with No Credit and No money down". My advice to anyone is Screw Paul blanco and his self righteous managers and his incoherent employees! The prices online aren't the actual price of the car. That's the low book price, they wouldn't even tell my GF the actual price of the car! So Screw Paul Blanco! He's a rip off!

I know a guy that used to work here. Their entire business model is selling people JUNK cars that won't last too long for about 3 tmes their value. They always say they have to charge an extra few thousand or so because your credit's too bad so the bank's charging them fees (LIES). Before it's all said and done, you'll pay at least 3 times more than the ad price. And a lot of people that buy from them want to return their car soon after or try to sue, but once you drive off the lot, it's YOURS! Remember, if they can get you a loan, an honest dealership can too! E-Z Auto Solutions are a bunch of crooks who LIE about EVERYTHING, and they've been investigated before!

After being politely denied at Swift in Davis I decided to go to Paul Blanco for they advertized program. I have met people in bigger financial straits that had bought a car from them. I took a friend with me since she has bought several cars and understands the process. As a first time buyer I was unsure and with good reason. At Paul Blanco it started well until I met Ed. He used words like "your credit is on fire" and worse. I have held the same job for 8 years and have security. I had $1.000,00 down. They acted like they would be doing me a huge favor and offered me really bad deals with a higher down. My friend asked questions and he refered to her as my attorney. Talking to her and not to me. Very patronizing and condescending. Told me to get the cash together and come back. On the way out, a man introduces himself as Mr.Blanco and says he would give me an extra $700 if I brought back more money . I thanked him but said I didn't think I could do it to which his repply was "Don't worry you are a pretty girl you come up with the money!" Gross...

After considering Paul Blanco's place I'm just beginning to research their operation and this was my first stop. Given the large number of adverse comments it's almost certainly my last. My credit might be challenged and of course I expect to pay a fair increased cost to whomever would extend me a car loan but in return I expect a fair deal. I've bought my share of both new and used cars in the past and helped others to do so. I buy nothing without a throrough going over by my mechanic at my expense, a Carfax report and a cooling off period to think it over no matter how good the deal appears--all before I sign. If this place doesn't allow that NO WAY would I buy there. I expect professionalism and courteous treatment from all whom I spend money with. It looks like this might be a problem at Blanco's--and I'd have no problem walking out at the first slur, rude word, etc. Bait and switch, unkept promises, and other outright deceptive practices would also send me elsewhere immediately. A tip that I hope might help others: The state of California Bureau of Automotive Repair not only investigates deceptive repair practices but also works with the public on some of the many deceptive sales practices. In the past 30 years I've gone to them 3 times with repair rip-offs that secured refunds in full in each case. You have to have kept full documentation, and as my last case was 3 years ago I don't know what the state budget crisis has done to their ability to serve the public but consider at least checking with them. They have the leverage to pull the license to sell and/or repair vehicles if they find for the plaintiff and do not follow through with the resolution requested. Every rip-off artist deserves a visit from B.A.R. and we as consumers owe it to each other to see that they get one. .

Wow. I am SO glad I read these reviews. I am in need of a vehicle, and have gone from a 700 credit score to 500 in the last year of unemployment and struggles. I will NOT go through this company, and look elsewhere.
I hope this will help anyone who has gone through this without repayment or are currently in a bad loan through this company
There is a company I know of that audits car loans, and has a very high success rate in either a full refund, or lower payments because of fraud. EVEN after a repo. This is a fee based company, but I am fairly sure they return the funds. Its Platinum Auto Solutions. http://www.AuditmyAuto.com
All the best. I hope that at least some of the folks find this helpful.

We bought a 2005 Ford Explorer from Paul Blanco in February 2010. We have 7 kids and needed a reliable car that would fit our family. We both work, but we have bad credit so we went to Paul Blanco.

When we first got to the dealership, my first instinct was to wait. But, after talking it over with my husband we decided to go ahead and make the purchase. I should have gone with my instincts.

First, they don't post the price of the vehicles. We were already well into the contract process before we found out how much the car was.

Second, they say they do their own financing, but that's a lie. We were financed by Westlake Financial. We had $4000 down and they wanted an additional $1500. Plus, our payments are $359 per month with a high interest rate.

Third, they sold us the optional warranty and said we were buying the best warranty and we were getting a good deal. We pay $55 a month for a warranty that doesn't cover jack.

At first, I thought it was all worth it because I love my truck and it fits the family. Well, that has changed just 6 months later. My truck is at the shop with a Transmission Shift Solenoid failure. It is going to cost us $1300 to fix, plus the cost of the rental and none of it is covered under the warranty. I know we bought the car as-is, but they told me they do a full inspection and certification of every vehicle before they put them on the lot. If that were the case, why am I now struggling to come up with the cash to get my car on the road again.

I would never in a million years recommend Paul Blanco. They take advantage of people when they are looking for a "fresh start". We felt like we had no other options and they knew it.

BTW, the CD player quit working in April.

We bought a 2005 Ford Explorer from Paul Blanco in February 2010. We have 7 kids and needed a reliable car that would fit our family. We both work, but we have bad credit so we went to Paul Blanco.

When we first got to the dealership, my first instinct was to wait. But, after talking it over with my husband we decided to go ahead and make the purchase. I should have gone with my instincts.

First, they don't post the price of the vehicles. We were already well into the contract process before we found out how much the car was.

Second, they say they do their own financing, but that's a lie. We were financed by Westlake Financial. We had $4000 down and they wanted an additional $1500. Plus, our payments are $359 per month with a high interest rate.

Third, they sold us the optional warranty and said we were buying the best warranty and we were getting a good deal. We pay $55 a month for a warranty that doesn't cover jack.

At first, I thought it was all worth it because I love my truck and it fits the family. Well, that has changed just 6 months later. My truck is at the shop with a Transmission Shift Solenoid failure. It is going to cost us $1300 to fix, plus the cost of the rental and none of it is covered under the warranty. I know we bought the car as-is, but they told me they do a full inspection and certification of every vehicle before they put them on the lot. If that were the case, why am I now struggling to come up with the cash to get my car on the road again.

I would never in a million years recommend Paul Blanco. They take advantage of people when they are looking for a "fresh start". We felt like we had no other options and they knew it.

BTW, the CD player quit working in April.

I do not know why the State of California even lets this guy stay in business. I had the unfortunate event of working for this guy ( Paul Blanco). He is not only corrupt to his customers and trains employees to not respond to customer complaints, he does not pay them what he owes and then claims to the IRS that he paid you less and keeps the taxes that they collected from your paycheck!
I don't have challenged credit, so I WOULD NEVER BUY A CAR FROM PAUL BLANCO. I would rather ride a bicycle or take RT.
PAUL BLANCO VICTIMIZES HIS CUSTOMERS. DO NOT BUY FROM PAUL BLANCO, you will surely get RIPPED-OFF!

He knows it, I know it and all these people on this page know it. Hopefully you do not have to find out!

Okay.. DON'T GO TO PAUL BLANCO! JUST A BUNCH OF B.S THEY SAY OVER THE PHONE! Alright, Well my credit isnt too great but I had a down payment and they said they would work with me. So me n my husband and THREE kids drive allll the way to Sacramento just to have them basically say OH BRING MORE MONEY AND WE can put u in something that was NOT great at all. The man was a straight smart ass and really difficult to be around. He told me things I already knew so he was NO help. One other thing is that they said to work on my credit and I said "ARENT YOU A FRESH START PROGRAM??" and he just said "well come back with more money and better credit and we can help you." So its just a bunch of bs if you want to waste gas and time going there. Try M&S Discount Motors in Stockton. They accepted my down payment and I got a beautiful SUV with low payments for my type of credit. PAUL BLANCO IS JUST A SCAM!

Avoid at all cost! I have bad credit (between 515-615 depending which credit bureau) so I thought I had no choice but to go here. I got approved for $8,000 and was going to be in the 20-25% interest range (this is one of those buy here, pay here type dealers). They failed to look at the 3 auto loans I had that were all paid off and were paid perfectly on time every month. The guy I talked to said "your credits on fire, you won't be approved anywhere. That's your fault not ours. I went to Roseville Hyundai and got approved for $16,000 with a 12% APR on a NEW car! Such a joke! Avoid it EZ Auto like the plague if you can! Just keep trying at a regular dealer, and only go here after you've tried EVERY other option!

Wow.... This has got to be the worst place ever! They for one promise things on there cars will be fixed with no problem and lie! For 2 they sell you a car because you have issues and give you worse issues! The worth of the car I purchased is 6,000 and needs alot of work but guess what If I were to pay the whole loan with extended warranty id be paying almost 19,000! This place is crap their communication is crap! They never called me to let me know that I didn't get financed and almost a month later they just shut the car off with that auto switch thng they havew on the cars! They had better return my down payment or this will get super ugly!!!!

This is the worst place ever to buy a car, I know you may really need a car but by the time you finish with them I guarantee that you will come out way more money than you even knoew that you had. Then when you try to trade in the vehicles years later because the the interest front loans you will never even touch ur pricipal and the vehicle will then be considered upside and you still will have a huge problem. I had to go to the dealer at least five times, I had to have people come with me to tal to them to get safety issues taken care of. They lied to me and told me that they were selling me an extended warranty and that is what sold me, but when I talked to the finace company, they informed me that there was never a warranty place on the car, so I paid ten thousand for a bucket, that I have to fix everything on. The a/c has went out twice, now the car is over heating. I went over to the dealership on Fulton and guess what it is gone, I'm sure they are doing business under another name somewhere else. PLEASE DO NOT BUY YOUR CAR FROM THEM, YOU WILL REGRET IT!!!

We went there today to see a truck that was listed online for $5299. After arriving there we were told that the truck was actually $9250 and that the online price was the low book and that they wouldn't sell for that price. What a huge waste of my time. Go to Hayes auto in Roseville for a better deal and friendlier service. We got the truck we wanted for the terms we hoped for.

I wish I had never gone there. That place is such a joke. They will tell you whatever you want to hear. Bring a shovel because it gets deep there. We had sold our car that morning. Arrived with the down payment previously discussed. What a surprise, they needed more money. They spent more time in the "boss" office telling jokes than out on the floor helping us. Finally after 7...YES 7 HOURS there, we settled for a car we didn't really want. Since it was late Sunday by then and we had no car since we sold ours that morning, we had no choice. I could go on and on but my blood is starting to boil. Let me just say this.....Go to a real dealer, you will be better off, trust me.
