.

I was bidding on an 04 Dodge SRT 10 on ebay motors, from Speedway Auto Mall, when it started to look serious I got myself preapproved with the dealership; once this happened they canceled the auction and wanted to handle it outside of ebay. Not being a big fan of eBay??s policies and fees I went ahead and moved forward with the purchase. The salesman Dave R. assured me that the truck was ??Flawless? and didn??t have a ??Scratch? on it, nor did it leak a ??Drop of Oil?; as they sell all over the world not just the country and would stand behind any vehicle they sold? this was not the case; After the down payment was sent, the financed portion had been paid by the bank and the aftermarket ??Bumper to Bumper? warranty was set up and paid for the shipping could be arranged. When I spoke the Transport Driver I told him the truck was in ??Perfect Condition? and I expected it to be delivered that way. The Driver called me after he picked the truck up and told me about some ??Gouges? under the truck, which were significant to the tune of almost $3,000.00 to repair. He also told me that he pointed this damage out to JR, who is actually Dave R??s boss; I believe he may be at least a partial owner too. I immediately contacted Dave via a phone call, this was the last time he would answer my calls, he said he would check into it and get right back to me?. This has not happened even after several months. Upon delivery of the truck the damage was documented and the fluids checked?. The reason it didn??t leak any oil was because the power steering reservoir was empty; upon filling it with fluid it promptly leaked out. The power steering pump, belt, alternator, and windshield washer nozzles all had to be replaced within the first 14 miles of driving it, even with the ??Bumper to Bumper? warranty this cost an additional $200.00 + to fix. Within the first 600 miles the ??Brake? and ??ABS? lights have come on, and the Navigation System does not work. All of this on a truck which I paid $22,000.00 for then bought a $3,000.00 warranty and then paid $975.00 to have it shipped to my house. NADA on this truck is just shy of this amount for ??High Retail?, as this truck had power remote release toneau cover that lined up the rear spoiler and was fully loaded and in such great shape I thought this was still a good deal and went ahead with the purchase.

My wife finally got a hold of JR after a few months of neither him nor his salesman returning phone calls nor emails; he told her they have no intentions of repairing or paying for repairs to the truck because it was sold as is and buyer beware.
I guess that is the morale of this story?. BUYERS BEWARE OF SPEEDYWAY AUTO MALL in Machesney Park, Illinois.

I came here looking for a good car and all I found was junk. if you want to pay a high price you can get a "good" car but if you dont have alot of money this is not the place to go. I looked at a couple cars and none of them ran well and if they did they were trashed.

I just bought a car from there in January. The exhaust is messed up, apparently the radio needed a code to work that they didn't give me and it took them almost 3 weeks to get back to me on, the check engine light came on after a week, and a piece of side paneling came off the car. The sale was final though.

If you want a quick sale, they'll be more than happy to help you. If you want any kind of customer service after they have your money, you've come to the wrong place.
