    Has anyone ever purchased a car/truck from them? Or known anyone who has? I'm going to be buying a new truck within the next month or so, and I have seen a lot of trucks on their site that I like that have low miles and low prices. I have read a couple mixed reviews, but not entirely sure. Anyone help me out?

    just as a word of caution. When buying from a used car lot, you need to be very cautious about making sure it isnt a auction car. When i was shopping around from a lightning i looked at 2 at the same kind of place. And after crawling under the car(yea i got alot of weird looks), looking under the hood, and going through all the electrical component operations.... i found a few things that just were not right. Come to find out it was damaged but not reported...(so no carfax) and the first thing that tipped me off was the cassette player(lightning only come with 6 disc). so just be really careful. And with the used car warranties.. alot of those companies are really shady about paying for a claim. but hey if you find a good car/truck go for it! good luck man keep us updated

    Yeah I already found that out the hard way. I bought a 96 chevy stepside from a used lot that everyone claimed to be really good. I paid $6000 for the truck. Had some leaks in the radiator about 2 weeks later that i fixed with some water weld. Then the starter went out and I think there was something wrong with the timing chain as well. I never even made a payment just called them and gave them what for and told them to come pick it up. Took 4 1/2 hours to get it running then it died and they had to tow it.

    I will def keep everyone updated if I make a purchase from them. But I have been thinking and looking at car max and I might actually get a better deal from them we'll see.

    Yeah lol. To be honest I doubt I will ever get another rx8. I think my next purchase after the truck is going to have about 4 more cylinders than the 8 :D
