Dishonest Bob's – No surprise...every review I typed up for this place mysteriously disappeared. It's one thing to be dishonest and sell a car you know is a pos to a mother who needs a reliable source of transportation for herself and her children. It's another level of sliminess to go and have every review she wrote to let others know not to make the same mistake removed. I don't know what fib they told the websites to have my reviews removed, but I will not go down quietly.
These sales guys were perfectly nice until the number crunching came about. As others have stated, they overprice even over KBB by at least 20%. They will say whatever it takes to get the sale, regardless of the truthfulness. They will sell you a car they have had on the lot for over a year because it has so many electrical issues it has prevented previous sales. They will use every cover up trick in the book to make the seating material and paint job look phenomenal. Two to three months after your purchase, don't be surprised to see large areas on the car where you suddenly have no paint or damage to the seats that was not previously visible...especially if it's leather.
I made it very clear to these guys that I was in need of a dependable vehicle for hauling around two young children while attending BSU full time. They sold me the biggest lemon on the lot and they knew it. At a parts only, discounted price with my mechanic, I still spent as much as the cost of the vehicle on trying to trace down the electrical issue that would cause the car to die while driving down the road or not start at all. It turned out to be a simple ground issue. They had the car for over a year and never bothered to figure this out. They would rather make a profit then be honest any day of the week.
Drive or walk right on by and don't waste your time with dishonest bob's. My review was not the only negative one to disappear, so be wary of the positive ones being legit.
What a great place! – Everything went so smoothly! The sales people are great, and the service department is unbelievable! No wonder they have been in business over thirty years! Thanks Bob!
