Do not purchase a vehicle from here. My boyfriend bought a car less than two weeks ago and has nothing but trouble. They did not disclose all of the vehicle's issues ( I strongly suspect they hid some issues like the leaks in the tires)

So more people need to give props where deserved.
i drove up to St.Paul Park from 4hrs away to come look at and hopefully purchase. The salesman, Tom was great. i initially called and he was honest, straight forward, and very helpful. He

I figured I would speak up, because the feedback I've seen regarding this place hasn't been the most balanced. The two gentlemen I dealt with @ East Side Auto this past April were quite good. After getting the runaround at an established &

I would never buy a car at East Side Auto again and strongly caution anyone considering it to run the other way. I have since learned that it is never a good idea to buy a car with a salvage title, especially from an untrustworthy dealer

I will always go back for more cars.\r
We are on our 4th car from Eastside.\r
Always felt I got a great deal for the money.\r
3 were flood cars and still running great.\r
The last one we saved about $8,200 from buying here,\r

My family owns two East Side Auto cars. One purchased in 2001, one in 2006... both have been great cars and are still going strong. From the other reviews, it sounds like there's a chance you'll get a bad car, but both of mine are great.

I have purchased 3 cars from East Side Auto. Two of them were great the other had been in a flood and it continues to have problems with the turn signal lights and the headlights having moisture in them. A seal of some sort must have

Purchased a 2003 Cavalier about 5 years about 5 years ago for my daughter. I needed a reliable but inexpensive vehicle. The car was salvaged from a flood. Body had 6000 miles and different engine had 4000. It has been a very good car the last 5 years. After 5 years the car has not had any issues related to initial purchase. While there is more risk to buy a salvage car, sometimes it works great as it did for me.

Pros: Lowest cost car

Cons: Greater risk, but was worth it

Bought a 2000 Plymouth Voyager with 66,000 miles from them in August of 2009. We were given a 30-day warranty on the transmission but were not informed of any transmission issues.

Our mechanic looked the van over and noticed a leak in the transmission line and a bent stabilizer bar. We took the van back and they told us they fixed everything before we paid for the van. So - we paid $4000, plus traded in two vehicles for $1200, and drove away with a vehicle we thought would see us reliably through.

A couple weeks later the van started to develop an odd squeaking noise in what we thought was the front end. Thought it probably had something to do with the front end damage which they told us was minor and that they had fixed so the Salvage title could be cleared to be a Prior Salvage title. Anyhow, we were going to take it back to our mechanic for another look-see while we were under warranty, but then got sidelined with a family hardship (kid in the hospital for a week and then all of the fam sick for the following week) and we missed our window. We assumed everything was probably fine - just some grease needed since it was just a squeaking noise.

Jump ahead to roughly two weeks post warranty and the transmission goes out stranding wife and the kids in rush hour traffic blocking both lanes. Couldn't even push the thing out of the way it was so locked up. Okay - so no car is perfect, but our mechanic said, call them back they should help you out with this. Seems reasonable. Guess what? NO HELP WHATSOEVER.

The service dept. manager said we could try to find a new tranny on some used parts web site (how does that help us? we are not mechanics and this is our only vehicle so we can't be out of commission indefinitely) and if we couldn't find it there he could probably find one for us at a salvage yard. Nice.

These guys are jerks. Our family is out of work and we told them our situation hoping they wouldn't steer us toward a lemon. Our mistake. These guys don't give a crap what happens to you or your vehicle once they have your money. The service mgr said we should have taken out a longer warranty, but we were never even offered one.

They are crooks. Stay away from them. Their offices are filthy - even the coin operated candy in their office sucks.

Pros: Cheap Wheels, I mean LEMONS

Cons: Dirty offices, these are wrecks without history, unhelpful

I bought a car from them..I don't want to be specific. I noticed the next day, it had a screw in the tire; I had a flat. Went tires plus to get it patched and the tires rotated. Tires plus found a bad tie rod end...went back to the place to get fixed...now it gets interesting. They fixed it all right, a wheel bearing and the tie rod. One mechanic said it needed alignment, the other said it didnt. The one that said it needed it said they would pay for it. Never did. And here where it gets interesting...the next week the engine light went on and I noticed the power steering container leaked (big bill), then on the highway the lug nuts came off on the highway ( mistake from this place). Rotor damaged, lower ball joint, and many other things. Along with that there is something wrong with the battery and the engine light came on again. Since it was their fault, I tried getting them to pay some of it. They give me the run-around. NEVER buy a car from them.

Pros: Cheap cars
