Don't waste your money.... you'll have to spend more. – BEWARE OF THIS COMPANY!!! Just as RKMCCRAY had said, this dealership probably isn't somewhere that you want to get your car from. Just to let everybody know, these scam artists sale you a car above the average price value for the many underlying issues that are on these vehicles when they are sold to you. I bought a mustang from them, and after 2 months of driving it multiple problems arose.
First of all the pigtail going to the cooling motor looked as though it had been forced in so hard, that the clip broke, this caused the car to overheat when sitting idle. That is a minor replacement part, not as much of a big deal. The major problem that arose, was when the catalytic converters went out, it bogged down my car so much that I couldn't even get it over 20 mph. I had it diagnosed at a place, and they said that the catalytic converters and the muffler had gone out, and they needed to be replaced. After they were already looking at it, Lonestar cars told me to bring the car over there, and they could look at it for free, and then probably fix it cheaper than other places. Well, I had to pay for the towing over to their dealership, and they then continued to tell me what I already knew, that the catalytic converters and the muffler were out. They took it to the dealership, at which point the dealership replaced it because certain emissions parts are covered by law. Well, when they went to pick it up from the dealer, it wasn't running on the way back to their shop because the muffler was full of the stuff from the catalytic converters. After this all taking over a month for all of this to happen, they finally told me that replacing the muffler would cost another $100. I told them to not worry about it, and i would just go without a muffler for a little bit, as i could fix and replace it myself. When I went to pick the car up, their mechanics said that I owed $130 to them for a diagnostics and towing... If they had listened in the first place, I knew that the muffler was out, and the cats were bad. Needless to say, within 3 months of buying the car I'm going to have sank an extra $380 into the car.
Aside from those issues, there is cosmetic damage on the inside that one would overlook if they weren't really looking for every little detail (as you would wish you didn't have to, but there are people out there that want an extra buck if they can finagle it out of somebody.) When attempting to talk to the owner about assisting me with some of this, he utterly and completely refused. The last time i gave him a chance, he got very upset because he tried talking over me and I wouldn't let him, and said that if I didn't pay the mechanics, that he would call his lawyer on me.... I don't really think this place is a wise choice for anybody to purchase a car from. When they sell you a car, they haven't bothered looking at it at all to see if anything is wrong, and will not assist you at all if anything goes wrong. PLEASE BEWARE of this place if you are buying a car from here. If you do so happen to take your chances with this place, I would suggest having it looked at by an outside source before purchasing.
