In September of 2013, I purchased a 1969 Porsche from even at cosmopolitan motors. The advertisement represented the car was well maintained, and I was told the car could be driven anywhere.
When I received the car, it would not start, so it was taken to a porches specialist. They reviewed the car, and concluded that it was neither of the above, and would be very dangerous to drive.
The problems included leaking fuel lines in the engine compartment, problems with the brakes, clutch, electrical system, lights, horn, alignment, dry rotted tires, and no spare tire.
When I talked to Evan, he said he believed the car was as represented, but if these problems existed, he would take care of fixing them.
When I visited the shop in October, the repairs had been started, but were not finished. I was told that cosmopolitan had already put more time in than Evan was willing to absorb, and that I owed them for the repairs. I said at the time I would be willing to pay up to 2000 dollars if everything on the list was completed. This was an offer of settlement, that I reluctantly made.
I never received an invoice detailing when and if the work was done.
I asked to stop over to test drive the car around thanksgiving, and was told I could not test drive the car, even with an escort, until a bill in excess of 2000 dollars was paid.
No invoice of work done, no test drive, and I have to pay over 2000 dollars to get my car from this service shop.
The car is still being held hostage, so I strongly recommend go somewhere else to buy your car, or have service done to it.
