This place is a complete rip off. They sell broken down cars otherwise it would not be an auction. The only thing you can do is inspect the car but you can not drive it or look under. The owners of the Carriage Trade Auto Auction are a bunch of crooks. They buy from other dealerships they junky trade ins and sell them at the auction. I was stuck with a car that needed a new engine. After spending 3,000, there was no way I was going to spend more money. Be smart and buy from a local dealers and not from a risky auction.

Lisa, we are sorry this happened to you. We may not have been the one selling you the car. We are an auction house and we have private and dealers selling their own vehicles here along with a few of our own. It is not our responsibility to check out the condition of the vehicle, and you are allowed to look under the hood, start the car and even move it forward and reverse. Thank you for your review and we will try to make our services better in the future.

Bought a 2001 Saab 9-3 for cheap.....so I thought. During the auction I asked the seller some questions. I was told the car "Is fine!!!" "It will run forever." It broke down 10 miles outside of the auction. The engine had seized. The car is now virtually worthless and there is no way I'm putting $3,000 into it to get a refubished engine. Brought it to the most well respected Saab shop in Philadelphia. They told me that "they had to of known the car would need a new engine." Bought the car as is so I'm just out the money. Don't let this happen to you. There is a group on Facebook detailing the experience. NEVER AGAIN!!!

John, we are sorry that your vehicles engine was bad, although that happened we can't help you. We are flexible, but when you come to the auction please note, you are responsible for checking the vehicle out before hand. As you are also responsible for the purchases you make. If you do not feel comfortable with any vehicles in an auction, please come back for another one the next week. We have hundreds of different cars every week.

I used Carriage auto trade in the 80's and the experience was great. I brought a car for $2000 and keep it for 2 yrs. and sold it for $1500. I thought it was great using a car for 2years and getting my money back.

I got a car about 2 years ago! I am extremely happy with it and will continue to do business with them in the future! I am hoping to do the same and have a newer car soon!

needed an inexpensive car for my nephew and found a great deal at Carriage Trade. It was really fun to buy in an auction environment. It moves really fast, but once you understand the auctioneers you can get a good car at a great price.
