On 02/29/00, Sam and Elizabeth Young of Citronelle, Al

submitted a report on Reid' Auto Sales. Please refer

to their posting before reading any further.

Unfortunately, I purchased the same 1990 Mitsubishi

from Reid's Auto Sales in Eight Mile, AL. I have

taken the car back to the dealer repeatedly over the

last months(the first time being only two days after

purchasing the car), but they claim that nothing is

wrong with the car. They have started charging me for

parts and labor every time I want them to check the

car out but whatever they are doing is not solving the

problem. I should have known that the car was a piece

of junk immediately, but having limited income and not

too good of a credit history, I decided to see if the

car could be fixed.

After the fourth time taking the car back, I have had

enough. I see that all they are doing is milking me

for money and I'm not even able to use the car. I

told them to come get the car because I'm not paying

another cent on it.

They are now in the process of repossessing the car,

which they will probably sell to another unsuspecting


I was so upset with the treatment that I received from

this dealer that I started researching the web to see

if any reports had been filed against them for their

un ethical practices and I ordered a vehicle history

report to see if the car was a lemon. Through the

vehicle report I found out that the car has had seven

different owners other than me. I last three owners

have not keep the car for more than a few thousand


To my utter disbelief, I came across your web site and

the posting from the Young 's about Reid's Auto Sales.

I know that in all consumer purchases the "Buyer

Beware", but this is ridiculous. These people are

preying on poor people, who under normal circumstance

don't have the money or gall to fight back. Well

fortunately, I have the gall and I will find the money

to fight back. I am consulting a lawyer to see if I

have any legal recourse in this matter.

I would never recommend Reid's Auto Sales to anyone,

they are a complete RIPOFF. To the Young 's, if you

happen to read this message, please contact me at
