we recently bought a 2016 Ford F 350 from Texas Direct Auto. There were some gouges in the bed liner and scratches on the passenger rear fender which they agreed to repair. They said they would repair both items if we wanted to wait 5 hours. We said we would rather start our 18 hour drive home. They touched up the bed liner before we left their facility and told us to get estimates for the fender. Two hours after leaving Texas Direct Auto we ran into rain. The rain washed away whatever they used to repair the bed liner. Now that we are home and received two estimates for the fender and paid $40 to get the bed liner repaired., Texas Direct Auto thinks the estimates are too much and a refusing to pay the true amount it costs to have these two items fixed properly. The paint is a tri coat paint and is a long process to repair properly. How did they plan to fix it if they said it would take 5 hours. Think twice before buying from Texas Direct Auto!!!

The deal: The final price was perhaps a little high, also driven by unexpected charges for an inspection (in addition to the inspection I ordered), service fees, doc fees, and the like amounting to over $500. They listed the car on Auto Trader as well as their on line store on Ebay Motors. The Ebay listing had a better price on the Buy It Now. I placed an alternative offer and promptly heard from them the following day. We agreed on a price and a deposit was made. They quickly sent the sales agreement (sporting the surprise charges), and I was urged to immediately send a wire transfer in full to assure getting in the que for shipping. Wire transfer sent same day.
Experience going forward: They set a nice little link to a page called My Account Info. Here they claimed they would supply key information about funds, paperwork packages, title information, shipping information, and the like. You are encouraged to go to this page before calling them about status. Unfortunately, beyond the wire transfer activity, they didn’t update this page. In fact, it still does not reflect the fact that my transaction is complete showing that they are waiting on my signed paperwork package needed to complete the sale. Seeing there that things appeared to be stalled, I called and emailed, receiving nearly no replies. On one occasion where I did finally snag the sales person, he gave the analogy that customers are like a grade school class where every student thinks they are the only ones in class. I guess that supports the claim that they ship over 200 cars a week world-wide, and they don’t have the time to dig for information and keep customers appraised. I can say that I could not get any meaningful answers, and it was a very frustrating experience. Worse, they disputed the findings of the inspection firm I hired at their recommendation, so my concerns about things I wanted done were brushed off, infuriating to say the least. Further evidence that they are not very organized or customer oriented came for the hauler who transported the car. It was his first and last job with TDA. They made him wait for almost 3 hours beyond their requested scheduled arrival, while workers walked around the car with a rag in one hand, and cell phone in the other. His complaints to the shipping manager about having other cars to pick up went unanswered.
The Car: The car is about what I was expecting. The detailing on the car was second rate, crumbs in the seats, ½ of the dash covered with what appeared to be ArmorAll, finger prints and dust on wood finishes, dirty wheels, and assorted water spots. What were those workers doing for 3 hours while the car hauler waited and watched? Thank goodness the factory warranty is still in place with 8, 000 on the odometer, because only 4 days after delivery the battery was dead and the charging system is suspect. At this writing, it remains at my local Cadillac dealership undergoing repairs.
Ratings: I have gone to multiple sites looking at the ratings given to TDA by other customers. All ratings at YELP.com, Dealerrater.com, and Cars.com come up 5 out of 5 stars. Since they pulled the car from the Ebay Auction, there will be no ratings I can make there for them as the seller, or they me as the buyer. That is a good way to keep their behavior off the radar at Ebay, while violating Ebay rules about pulling auctions and settling by telephone. So where do they get their 100% positive Ebay feedback rating? Who are those people? And if they sell 200+ cars per month, why only 252 ratings over the past 12 months? But if you go to the Houston BBB, things get a little clearer with an “F” rating, 136 complaints, and 53 unresolved complaints. Further sleuthing brings forward a litany of complaints at [redacted].com and ComplaintsBoard.com. Of course, none of which I found before closing my deal. Hey, how bad can a 100% positive feedback high powered Ebay seller be?
Well, as always, its BUYER BEWARE.
Found a truck on eBay to buy, truck did not have a GPS and the salesman said they would add it. Bought truck...
Bought a 2007 Mercedes ml350 a few days ago. Took it to a dealership- there's a power steering pump leak, rear shocks are leaking and font and rear pads and rotors are in major need of repair. $4000 of repairs- . Mine came with a 3 day buy back guarantee so I asked it to be repaired or I will sell back. Haven't heard yet but I will update my review if it changes... Just saw my car posted back online for sale so not likely. Car is listed for the same price - watch out!
For whats its worth. I just want to pass on to your management team that I had a very unprofessional experience today with your salesman James Vu and other staff at your dealership that wasted my time. The ploy of letting people stand around while you act like you are looking for a vechicle and are interested in selling someone a car is a joke especially when you lie and never had the vechicle. I may be one but I will pass on to hundreds.
Just to let you know I went ahead and purchased another vechicle cash from a dealer right down the road from your company that did not act like you are at disney land while buying a vechicle. i ended up getting a better deal. So thank you.
I will also pass on to several friends of mine not to go to your Texas Direct Auto because they waste your time and the sales force are very arrogant. This was the worst experience I have ever had when it comes to shopping for a vechicle. Your staff may have fealt they won today but I can assure you I will let hundreds of people know how unprofessional your staff was today especially james vu.
Yours Truly...one unimportant customer that does not forget.

I purchased a car from Texas Direct Auto via ebay. When the vehicle arrived, it wasn't as advertised as it had very little oil in it, the keyless remote was smashed (per the sales rep, the vehicle had keyless remote), the hood would not stay up, it was missing the CD changer and the interior was in bad shape with a very bad odor. This vehicle was a 2005 model with only 66, 000 miles. I strongly suggest that you purchase locally or from a private owner. I found out that they have an F rating with the BBB after the fact. One additional comment, the carfax came back clean with one owner. I write this complaint to avoid this from happening to you..
Found Chevrolet Tahoe on Ebay and went to Texas Direct Auto on Monday, March 12th. When I looked at the vehicle everything looked as pictured on Ebay with the exception that the navigation/stereo system was missing. This was not mentioned on Ebay nor in the vehicle description. I was informed that there was a minor problem but was being repaired. I went ahead with the purchase after being assured that the vehicle would be ready for pick up by Wednesday, March 14th. I told my salesman that I would be back on Thursday to pick up but to call me when the vehicle was ready. I finalized my financing and everything on my side was complete. The problem is a severe lack of communication from Texas Direct and misinformation. You have to take the initiative and call them. I have been promised returned phone calls that were not returned. It is Saturday morning, March 17th and I don't have a vehicle or a returned phone call. I intend on completing this transaction and probably at considerable expense since I now have to rent a vehicle for now. I will not ever due business with Texas Direct again or recommend to anyone.
My son's friends father is the manager at Texas Direct Auto and my son was in desperate need of a car...
I visited the Texas direct auto store online, and found myself a victim of the same scams as everybody else. Great promises that turn out to be nothing in the end. Throw in a few bait and switch ads that lure people in and you have yourself a profitable con job run under the name of Texas direct auto! I expected more out of this company because I’d found some good reviews online not reporting any problems. Now that I see clearly it’s nothing but complaints.
Texas direct auto advertises and holds auctions on ebay. The cars are also located in Houston Texas at a huge dealership. I saw a car on ebay and immediately contacted them. They said yes the car is available please come on in to have a look at it. I get there and then was told the car was at a remote location and wouldn’t be available until later today. However I was asked to put a deposit down on the vehcile so that it would not be sold under me. I thought well it is very resonably priced and the pictures showed an immaculate vehicle. I asked if the pictures showed the true condition of the vehicle and was assured as such. So I put the money down. I did not receive a call that afternooon so I contacted them, the vehicle is not there and no one knows where it is. Next day I receive a call, “Your car is here they proclaimed.” I hurried down after work and had to wait about 45 minutes for them to locate the vehicle and bring it for me to inspect and test drive. As it pulls up I said that cannot be it, the whole rear passenger side was sideswiped along a pole. My salesman said there you go. I immediately point it out. Upon further inspection every single body panel has multiple areas of damage, all very visible. The fron bumper is a different shade of silver and the tailight has a hole and several cracks. I get inside and the glovebox is broken and appears to be painted black to match as the edges are all tan. The TPMS is lit and apparantly the rear tire is almost flat. I bring this up and they say “It’s ok, just be careful.” The vehicle drives ok, but it is very misrepresented. I ask for a refund of my deposit and they say adamantly NO! “Either purchase this or choose something else we have, oh and you have seven days to do so or you forfeit your deposit.”
This is the biggest scam I have even seen. I will NEVER recommend them nor PURCHASE anything from them.
I got an appraisal on my vehicle for a trade-in, and my girlfriend was going to purchase a vehicle in her name, using my trade-in. We found the vehicle we wanted and put forth the $500 deposit / down payment on the truck. Then they called her saying that they would need MORE money down in order to get that truck. The bank that they used to approve her had a 24.98% interest rate. So we decided to try our credit union, and got approved at 13.9% with no money down. So we wanted to go that route, but unfortunately, either way we could not get the truck we originally wanted, and was not interested in anything else they had, nothing was in our price range. When we asked for the money back, they refused, saying that it can transfer to another vehicle, so long as we bought something newer that cost more. We said we did NOT want to do that and we wanted our money back, but they refused. The salesman, Eric Rosenman was extremely rude and disrespectful to us both. After this whole ordeal, I prefer NOT to any business whatsoever with TDA.
I saw the vehicle online and called a sales rep. I spoke for aprox. 20 minutes on the phone about the vehicle...
I bought a 2006 Nissan 350Z from these people 3 weeks ago. The day I went to get the car and test drove it, I reported to them that it was pulling hard to the right. They said they would do an allignment while I was doing the paperwork. Came back 20 minutes later and said it would be a 2-3 hr wait (we had already been there for 4 hrs) for the allignment. Instead they gave me a voucher for an allignment at the place of my choice and they would reimburse me. The very next day I took the car to Goodyear for an allignment. They informed me the car had been wrecked, had a bent subframe and rocker arm and couldn't be alligned. I called my salesman, Miguel, and told him. He said to get a certified estimate and they would see what they could do. I got the estimate which was just under $3000. Was informed that not only was the subframe and rocker arm bent, but the radiator has a hole that has been patched with epoxy, and the frame for the radiator is broken. Incidentally, the carfax report is clean, but the car has obviously been wrecked!! I emailed the estimate to them, and it took 3 days to get a response. When I got a response it was "sorry, you're on your own, there's nothing we can do". I finally got the car of my dreams, and they screwed me over repairs. My car is not safe to drive, and in return they got my 2007 Ford Ranger in trade that was in excellent shape and paid for. DO NOT BUY FROM THESE PEOPLE!!! At least until you get an inspection from a mechanic NOT affiliated with Texas Direct Auto. They DO NOT inspect their cars as they claim on their website!!!
I was told by my company to find a good, used cargo van under $10k. I found one online at the TDA website, a 2006 Chevy Express with under 70, 000 miles. I was puzzled, as the salesman Rodney said I was required to put down a non-refundable $500 deposit. Apparently, if you don't like the car you want to see, they require you to pick something else, or they just keep the money! SCAM! Any rate, the van looked good, so he took my credit card info and said to come by around 4 so the van could be cleaned. I got there at 3:30 hoping it'd be done early. At 6PM they finally brought it around, and it was filthy! It had 4 dry-rotted tires, and one went flat on me during the test drive! The right turn signal was out and the cargo door didn't open. However mechanically the van was sound. I limped it back to the lot and told Rod it was a go if they repaired everything. I finished all the paperwork and Rod said they needed to order a part, the car would be ready by noon the next day. Having been burned by them before, I called at noon and guess what his reply was? "Van will be ready by 2, we are cleaning it" So, I roll in at 2:30. Between then and f'n 7PM, 3 people have come by to tell me the van is being cleaned. They finally bring it by at 7:30. I'm told to pull forward, so they can get me my paperwork. "Should't be more than 5 min" the guy said. Well I waited 5, and got outta there. As soon as I hit the highway, it's obvious the van is way outta alignment. As of yesterday, one of the "new" tires is cracking, and I still haven't gotten my paperwork. The front dest girls act like you are interrupting their day. Elania or whatever her name is, never stopped texting on her phone, and got real annoyed when I had questions. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!. I know the van wasn't a high priced item, but this type of disrespect is disgusting.
