Have never had a problem after 4 cars from them – True they are used car salesman However they have never done me wrong. They always remember my name when i go in and have always treated me with respect. I have got 4 cars from them and have never had a problem.
If you treat people with respect they will give it back to you.
After my boss bought a car at Midway he referred me to there when I went to look for a car. He said that they had the lowest prices, and really nice cars. So I checked their prices out on the internet in comparison. And many of the cars that I looked at were the lowest price ANYWHERE. So I wondered if they had a bad carfax or something. But when I went in, they provided a free carfax on 3 vehicles that I was interested in and none of them had ever even been in an accident. They did have extra fees, which I saw some people write about that on here, but even with the fees they were still lower (price wise) than anyone else I could find.
So now I am driving my Mazda and loving it! I would definitely anyone looking for a great deal to go to Midway.
better than lowbook – I had a horrible experience at Lowbook sales 2 years ago, so I was very apprehensive when I went to look for a new car. My experience at Midway was so much better that I no longer think that ALL dealers are crooks. The salesmen were super nice, they answered every question I had, and when I didn't understand things, they explained instead of just brushing over things. If you want a good car deal go to Midway and ask for Jamall.
good experience – I always write reviews to places I go, and I liked Midway. They are professional and prompt (which in my book is second only to quality in service or product for a business.) Alex was a great sales guy and although he couldn't answer all of my questions, atleast he didn't lie, ( he just kept running back and forth to his boss to ask questions.) I love my Grand cherokee, and would refer my friends to them.
Dirty Scoundrels - BUYER BEWARE ! ! ! – They give all used car dealers a bad name! I've read all the reviews (after I purchased of course) and they're all true. The check engine light on, the empty gas tank, the $1000 for a glass etching and interior cloth protection (which is nothing more than a $5 spray can at home depot - if they did it at all). I got the same run-around that everyone else did on this post.
And, when I went in to return it, they told me they sell all there cars As Is... The 3-day return policy is good only if you have lots of time and money to spend fighting this in court...
I want to do what I can to tarnish the reputation of this dealership - they are nothing but a bunch of crooks.
good business – I told my salesman that if he treated me right that a month after the sale I would write a good review about them. I really do feel that they did everything to sell me a car on my terms. However, I should tell everyone that I learned the hard way that there is no 3 day right of return. I wanted to take the car back because the day after I bought my explorer, my wages got cut. However they gave me the option to exchange for a 2004 yukon, at no charge and gave me a lower price. Todd was awesome, and I couldn't ask for anything else(other than to change Utah law for a 72 hour return rule).
Lowest price, great experience – I was terrified when I read the reviews on this website. But they had the car that I wanted. So I called the dealership and asked for the manager. I told him (Cory), about the bad reviews. He told me that there are a lot of crazy people out there that he has to deal with, but that if I came up he told me that he would provide the lowest price on the vehicle I was looking for and wouldn't play any games with me. I asked him for the exact amount that I would need to buy the car, and he told me without any hesitation. So after looking around a little more, I decided to trust him. So I went up, and I have to say that he fulfilled what he told me 110%. They compared their price with their competitors (which I had already negotiated with) and it was the lowest. The price didn't change, and I didn't feel any pressure.
I would definitely recommend this place to any friends who are SERIOUS about buying a car, because I would say that they are motivated to sell. Just don't go in and try playing any stupid games.
Dishonest Auto Plaza – On October 27, 2008 my faince against his better judgement purchased a 2002 Mustang from Midway
Auto Plaza without consulting with me. Ironically just hours after the purchase I lost my "Steady" job of 3.5 years. Arfter telling my fiance the news we decided the car had to go back. On October 28 we went in to the dealership and spoke with the financial rep he insisted there was no return policy however, all we had to do was put my name and the fact that I was unemployed on the loan and the bank would reject it. After doing so the rep asked to come back later that night. When we returned we spoke with another gentleman that said putting me on the loan is not going to help and insisted that they put me on the sales paperwork for the car. I was hesitant but also desperate for them to take the car back so I reluctantly signed the paperwork. The next day my father went into the dealership frustrated and in fear that they were trying to sabbotage my credit. He spoke with a gentleman that then told him the reason they put me on the paperwork was because it would HELP us get the loan. My father then asked what had to be done in order to return the car. The gentleman insisted that my fiance needed to come in and sign a statment and pay for the miles he had driven (.50 per mile) and they would take the car back. We went later that evening to sign the statement because my father was told they would be there until 10:00 to do so. Arriving about 7:30 my fiance went in to sign the statement and was told the person he needed talk to would not be in until the next day. At this point we were very aware that these people were "jerking us around". So the next day he went in and ended up speaking with the Gm who told him that the only reason they would let him sign that statement was if he was willing to trade the mustang in for another vehicle. After all this I demanded to have the bank number the car was financed through and was told I could not have that info.
Worst dealer Experience? – I went there to look at three cars, a Evo, STI, and Acura TL. As soon as I arrived in the parking lot I was stopped by a guy named Tom, that immidiately wanted to show me the cars. Soon we found out that both the Evo and the STI were gone, but the TLs where there ... all three of them had cosmetic problems (scratches, stuff coming out, smelled bad, etc) that per se isn't a problem, but for being an expensive car didn't quite meet my requirements. Then Tom had the brilliant idea of showing me a supped up GTO. I had to go for a test drive (well, sit in the passenger sit, while HE DROVE THE CAR) we went to the gas station to put gas, and on the freeway where Tom could enjoy the fast ride. Ok, he realized that I wasn't into the GTO, so he let me look at the other cars. While I finally was relaxing there came Cory, I think the inventory manager that jumped into the seat of another Acura with me and told me to go for a test drive. After hearing that I didn't like the car, he made me pull into the dealership and take another one. Finally I get to drive the TL I think ... but wait ... we had to put gas on that one too. I told him I wouldn't buy the car that night. He kept pushing and offering me the perfect deal.
Then we went inside, and as he felt he was loosing control of the sale he started blubbering higher discounts and trade in values for my car. I obviously didn't buy a car. They had a car I was interested in, but they lied about year, mileage and history (they said they got it today and wasn't online yet ... while, oh my ... there it was when I got home! priced higher than anyone else). This was a high pressure sales environment ... not sure why.... there are so many better car dealership out there that sell cars for cheaper and better shape. And that will treat you like humans, and not like a dollar sign.
But hey ... if you want to test drive cars ... go there, they will let you drive everything you want... just don't buy!!!
Avoid this place!!! – This place will do anything or say anything to get a sale. They told me and my husband we could get our car and pay 400 for eight months and then refinance it down to 200 a month. They also said if that didn't work they would trade it in for a different car where my payments will be 200. Went back and they refused to be honest and do what they said they would do. Tried to trade my car in for less than half of what is owed on it. Do not care about anything or anyone just making a quick buck.
