AutosDirectOnline / Sold me an pile of junk
Do Not Trust These Guys!!! I purchased a 2005 Nissan Titan from Juan at Autos Direct Online in february of 2011. I saw it on ebay and called to verify condition, etc. I was told the vehicle had a clean car fax, drove great, didn't smell, no rust, no accidents. Because I live in CO and they seemed reputable, I purchased the truck over the phone. They told me shipping would be about 2 weeks. almost 8 weeks later the truck arrived. The delivery guy showed up on Easter sunday and demanded cash to release the vehicle. I had already paid shipping to the dealer. Where do I get $600 cash on Easter Sunday!!! They dropped the truck off in the rain. When I got in to drive, there was no power steering. The power steering pump was seized because it was bone dry. I called Juan and he said for me to fix it at a local dealership and that they would reimburse me for the cost. They never did. I called Juan no fewer than 15 times and he kept telling me that I needed to talk to 'Vince'. I called and left voicemails for Vince 11 times and sent him 4 emails recounting my experience and attached the receipt I was to be reimbursed for. I have never heard from him. The tires were bald upon delivery and had to be replaced immediately. The battery died within 1 week and I was stranded 60 miles from home. There are obvious paint touch ups and overspray, evidence of an obvious attempt to hide body damage. The under carriage is completely rusted. The brakes had to be replaced within the 1st month. The tech that did the break job said that the seals on both differentials were gone and that there was water in them. Get this... there wasn't a drop of oil in the engine when they delivered the vehicle!! Almost a year later I just traded the vehicle because it has been such a disaster. When the dealer ran the VIN# they informed me that it had been in an accident in 2009! I have copies of the ebay listing that lists this truck as in great shape, clean car fax, no rust, runs perfect etc. It was all a lie. Do yourself a favor and buy elsewhere. These guys are dishonest and downright criminal.
Bottom line: They sold my a pile of junk and refuse to return phone calls. Because of the distance between us there isn't much I can do about it... except warn others.
