Car Gurus is dishonest

Asked by Jaroje Jun 14, 2019 at 08:37 PM

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

  I know you are trying to sell to a clientele
that can afford your newer cars.  That's all
good and well.
For people like me that can't afford a newer
car or even a car payment so far has been a
horrible experience for me!  My budget for a
car is from 500.00 up to 900.00.
Every car within my budget I have contacted
the sellers about say,

They are not for sale to the public only to
wholesale buyers.

The car is for parts only.

The car works fine unless you want to back
up the car.

It works fine it just needs a transmission.

Those were a only few of the responses I
have been given.
I am waiting on a response from you before I
contact Clark Howard, Channel 2 and
Channel 5 Consumer Reporters.

When I found your company with cars in my
price range I was excited that I had finally
found a company that was consumer
friendly no matter what your budget was.  
Obviously that has not been the case for me!

Thanking you in advance,

Jim Jenkins

Dude! CG's does not sell cars! Just ads that Other people fill out.

You will never find a $500 car that is road worthy. A $2,000 car is going to be very ifffy. You would have to go back 40 years to get a car that is driveable for that price. Sorry but that is the way it is.

I will find a car that is in good condition and runs well in my budget. Just because you don,t sell cars does not work. The ads you choose are a reflection of Car Gurus. I see all the negative reviews and they are also from people that can afford cars in this century.


Good luck but be aware that a $900 car is going to cost you several grand to get to road worthy condition. You are looking in the scrap metal price range!
