www.TexasAutoOnline.com Fairy telling Salesman Buyer beware
I am in north Texas and purchased a car online from Texas Auto Online because Ken McArdle told me that they have mechanics that go all over the US inspecting and buying the cars that they sell. He told me that the mechanics inspect the cars three times. And he emailed me Being that Texas Auto On-Line is the largest on-line auto dealer in the World (Selling High-Line Vehicles), we bulk buy our vehicles at executive demo auctions World Wide and we only buy the finest quality vehicles. we only sell show room quality vehicles.
This guy Ken ( http://www.magicalwb.com/home.htm) lives in the Magical World of Wishes and Dreams. He is a kid's story telling author and it carries over to his USED car selling. See his countless made up bedtime stories prepared him to write and be a great USED car sales man. ON the about us page, he says-I thought I would use my story telling imagination to inspire..." Think about it-What do you do Mr. McArdle? I sell Used cars and tell stories, Yes I am suuuuuuuuuure yoooou dooooo. No...literally I do, Ask my sales manager, he pays me well for my story telling. Used car salesman gets inspiration from his story telling imagination...literally.
Again he told me that the buyers of their cars are mechanics, that they inspect the cars 3 times for issues-well even a one eyed monkey could see the leak that the rearend had and the engine was covered in oil and grime. Then Ole Ken the story teller or is it USED car salesman, well I guess they are both the same in this case, tells me no problem-it must have happen on the way to Frisco, wait what is all of that road grime build up, hmm, must have happen when the Texas Auto Online owner drove it home after the inspection, no that is way too much road grime, ohh well, you bought it so fast that it did not make it to the inspection. Wait a minute, you told me that the buyers inspect them, the car report says that you had it for a couple of months...but it was sold before you could inspect it, ohhhh I thought I was in my side job fairytale guy...Ok, you got me, we will pay for it to be fixed, have the repair shop call us and we will giving them a credit card. The shop calls them, oh you need to speak with Denise. Denise say ohh, you will need to speak with the owner and he will not be in for a few days, but the check is in the mail...well maybe.
The check did not arrive as I was told, another wish and dream.
I have learned from my mistake-trusted a Used car sales guy that gets his inspirations from wishes and dreams and telling stories. I never received an apology, never received what they told me they were going to do to pay for the issues, nothing. Not even a cup of coffee for the time and money I have spent on fixing the problems that I bought. My dad always made jokes about used car sales man, know I met the guy he was speaking of.

    Texas Auto Online is like some of these large "online" used car dealers that make outlandish promises of guaranteed approval, or zero down...or "zilch" down as they say themselves. This is just nothing but a LIE! They mis-advertise to get you into their office just to sell you something less than what they initially tell you can get. They will tell you that you have been approved to buy a $23, 000 car and when you get there, you then are told...yes you are approved but you will need a $12, 000 - $13, 000 down payment. or they try and sell you the cheapest cars on the lot that they can't get rid of to no one else..It's called a SCAM...LOL..If Texas Auto Online will scam you before you have bought anything from them...I have to assume they would go further and lie to you about anything to sell you a car.
    Buyer's...the old saying still applies. When something sounds too good to be true..IT USUALLY IS!!
