I am what would be considered a very seasoned buyer. I am late in age and have been buying cars all my life. I usually prefer to buy private party, however in this case I needed car yesterday! I was left with only one option, a dealer. I looked for about 2 weeks at probably 7 cars I was very interested in. After my preliminary rounds I had it down too two dealers, one was Frenchy's Auto where I met Devin. The other I would like to remain nameless. Devin seemed to be an honest knowledgeable young man. He was very cordial with me even though I informed him I would not be buying that day. Long story short the other dealership had their lot attendant talking to be and he knew next too nothing about the vehilce I intended to purchase. I can honesty say that made me feel really uncomfortable. I decided Devin had earned my business. I went over that Sentra from top to bottom and the only complaint I had was the car was going to need a new inspection in only 4 months. Frenchy's agreed to give me a new Pa inspection. The skeptic I am, I deiced to have my mechanic go over the car after purchase. To my surprise not only was the inspection done properly, the car had new front end parts!( 2 tie rod ends, new CV axle and a new ball joint) I wanted to share my story with any person who is looking for a good used car. I know how hard the process can be. I had a great experience with them and I will send my family and friends! Thank you guys!!!
I hate buying used cars! Until I found Frenchy's Auto. I bought a really nice car from them. I really don't like buying used cars because I get scared I will be taken advantage of being a woman and all. They took a lot of time to show me a bunch of their cars until I found a Ford Taurus that I liked. Anyways I don't write reviews very often, but I am so happy with this car I had to tell people to go there! I will be back Frenchy and Devin! Thanks again!
o STAR RATING ! – When I bought my truck from Frenchy"s I asked multible questions , I asked what kind of things they did to the vehicles that they got in from the auction. I was told that the truck I was buying had a safety inspection on the brakes and the suspension.. They said cars and trucks could not be sold with those types of problems. Two days after buying the truck there was a noise coming from the rear end of the truck. Of course it needed brakes and rotors all the way around. My best friend did the work as i watched and when we took the rotors off they were worse than i'd ever seen. About a week later i needed two calipers in the rear. Then about 3 weeks later I was pulling up to my house and heard a big thud in the bed of my truck! The shackle holding the leaf spring snapped . Both rear shackles were so rotted that they had holes rusted through them . I have the pictures of them... I tried advances auto , pep boys , and auto zone for the shackles and no where carries this part so , my leaf spring is resting on the under side of my truck bed where it has left a dent . Now I am out of a car for a week until the part comes in. Moral of the story is that FRENCHY'S LIED they never did a inspection on the suspension because trust me its plain to see how bad they were.
5 star rating speaks for its self... – Frenchy's Auto went above and beyond the call of duty for me this week and I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a new used vehicle. I really cant say enough about the friendly service and the effort put in by this dealership to ensure I left a very happy customer. If you are in need of a quality and affordable set of wheels these are the people you need to check out. You'll be happy you did. They'll certainly make sure of it.
Amazing people with amazing service! – First let me say, I have no idea what these nay sayers are talking about...Frenchy is one of the most honest people/car salesman I know. He's been doing this for over 20 years and knows his stuff! Frenchy's had exactly what I was looking for within my price range and he really helped me out. I purchased my Subaru Impreza from Frenchy's and could not be happier. They took care of everything in a timely and efficient manner and were always very polite and upbeat. If I had any questions or concerns throughout the process or even after, they were more than willing to answer my questions thoroughly help me to the absolute best of their ability (which is always the BEST). As mentioned before...we are buying USED cars...and even the brand new ones (more often than not) will break...IT HAPPENS! I could not be more pleased with the service and product I received and would recommend Frenchy's Auto to anyone and everyone looking to find just the right vehicle!
The guy used to work as a mechanic for GM..that should tell you he is dishonest! – This guy frenchy, he thinks he's Soooooooo smart! If you are crazy enough to actually buy a car from him after you have read the reviews, then I guess nothing will change your mind. He used to be a mechanic for General Motors, and can hide big problems that the cars he sells has. If you like losing, then buy one of his overpriced cars and trucks. The guy has a big attitude problem, and thinks he can pull the wool over your eyes. I bet you didn't know that you can hide a lot of things by putting sawdust in the transmission huh? Well he sure does! He's the stereotype of a used car salesman. I bet the reviewer that gave him a 'great' listing is Barry, who does his website for him. If you get a car from him anyway, you have no one to blame but Frenchy and yourself if you don't heed the warnings.
Great service. Great product. – I must say that i am extremely taken back by the reviews i just read. I normally don't write any reviews however, i felt compelled this time. I know about 5 different people that have bought 3 different trucks and 2 cars from him. They where all very satisfied with them and have had absolutely no problems with any of them. My one Buddies has had his truck for about 8 years and has no problems. Frenchy was one of the most honest and trustworthy guys out there. If there where any problem with any cars he sold it happened without him knowing. or i am positive he would of taken care of that. Lets be realistic here we are buying USED cars, cars do break. New or not. I would highly recommend him to anyone i know.
If you want to get a vehicle that WILL DEFINITELY break down..buy one at Frenchy's Auto! (ZERO STARS!!) – Not to be a francophobe (I actually love French food and culture)..but it's generally not a good idea to trust someone named "Frenchy" who sells used cars. Sounds like a house of ill repute. And that is what he is running, but in a vehicular sense. He's got a bunch of used, on their last legs, cars and trucks.
He "refurbishes' them enough to hide the fatal character flaws, like a transmission that is ready to totally die. He 'fixes' it enough so that it won't croak until you've driven it far enough away that it's too far to walk back to the lot and get your old car back (and your money)! He made sure to clean under the hood because that is how he works, tidy it up and make it all pretty like..so that the customer (victim) thinks that it's all nice and new looking. Then when it dies on you, you will think, "but this is such a nice squeaky clean car! How could it die like that?" Easy. Because he fixes it all right...and laughs as you drive away, because he knows he just sold you a junker that has 3 wheels in the grave already. He's the absolutely WORST used car dealer out there, ALL of his stuff is TOTAL JUNK! You are throwing your money away if you buy his GARBAGE. Buyer beware all right!
Solution? AVOID THIS GUY!! He ONLY sells JUNK! Buy from a private party, they usually don't know how to fix major (and expensive) defects like he can.
Worst customer communication I've ever seen. – Let me start off by saying don't bother trying to contact this dealer through email, he won't bother to return it and he even admitted to this when we spoke with him. Also if you call him don't expect to get very in depth questions past yes or no. He'll basically give you as little information as possible and then tell you to just come and look and then hang up on you.
First of all we went to look at 2 vehicles, a jeep gc and a chevy tracker. We we're pretty interested in the the jeep and we were walking around checking it out. After 5 or so minutes of just looking over and staring at us he finally told us it was sold.
After that we asked if the tracker was sold and if we could take it for a test drive. Well apparently he was going on the assumption that we were just young and didn't actually know what we wanted. So he right out told us that we shouldn't even bother wasting his time and gas to test drive the vehicle unless we're sure that was what we wanted.
Needless to say he'll never see our business, or any from anyone we know.
