Thread: Need someone to check out a auto broker in Ft. Lauderdale

    Need someone to check out a auto broker in Ft. Lauderdale

    I am wondering if someone can find out how reliable and safe is a auto broker in Ft. Lauderdale Fl. I live on the west coast and I don't want to have issues with purchasing a vehicle through this company. They say that if the car is not as advert. they will refund my money but how long before they will return my money?

    Got connected to them via Craigslist, so I am suspicious they are a bogus company or at the very least there is something is fishy.
    I did leave messages with a couple of dealerships on the same street but they have not responded probably because I am not a customer.

    I have left numerous emails - No Response
    Called numerous times - automated pick up but they have no way of leaving a message.

    I know exactly where this location is.
    Not a very good area of town.
    I will drive by one day this week and let you know,
    however if they are not returning your numerous
    emails or calls, it may be a sign that they wont after the sale.
    Im sure you know this.

    No kidding. I have thought about that since they say if you have a problem they will return your money. To compensate I thought I would get a very vigorous inspection. If the inspection team is worth their salt they will find every thing that is wrong.

    Agreed. Buying ANY used car in S. Florida can be a risky move.

    Would some one put me out of my misery and check them out. This is killing me as I am constantly checking back here hoping someone has actually visited this broker

    I am happy to swing by at some point within the next few days...

    I have two air-cooled cars, and neither of them came from Florida. Same goes for a 3.0CS and others previously. We have a lot of 'too-good to be true' deals down here.

    As long as someone takes a look so I can direct my attention else where in my search for a Boxster S for our stay in AZ.

    Hey Brother,
    Sorry for the late reply.
    I went over there and it really looks shady.
    The fences were locked and no one would engage me,
    and I was in my 997.2.
    Just move on and buy a Boxster from any PCA member nationwide,
    or a REAL reputable dealer.
