I just got done reporting them...
I just got done reporting them to the attorney general of Iowa and if I have to will take further legal action if they do not pay what they owe.
Will said he would honor the warranty with another mechanic because we live 6 hrs away. I turned in my receipts which totaled over $800 because of all the work that had to be done. I have been told for a month now that the check is in the mail, but i`m guessing it aint ev... view moreer coming. JJ told my father that the car would pass Missouri inspection which it did not. The mechanic said it wasn`t safe to drive because the right inner tie rod was really really bad. That was the first bill. I had to shell out $200 before I could ever license it. Then the air conditioning did not work and that was another $400 and before any of that my father had to replace the alternator and battery so about another $200.
I should not have had to go to the attorney general. If you decide you want to travel down the road of buying from affordable auto remember this:
1. drive it to another mechanic and have it looked over top to bottom
2. Test the air and heat as well as electrical like windows (yeah know the things you always forget to check)
3. get everything in writing! everything!
4. Whenever possible buy from someone else

This place is ridiculous! I will never go there again! I bought a Geo Prizm from them and it seemed fine at first. But about 2 weeks later things began to go wrong, It seemed as though the people that work at Affordable Auto Sales were attempting to cover a lot of things up that was wrong with this vehicle, for example about a month after I purchased it the rear bumper fell off, and I found little holes in it and ha... view mored seemed to have been zip tied on... The ac and heat control nob was broken. They also put a new belt on the car to cover up the thing it revolves around. Now after 4 months of owning it, it sits in my driveway no longer willing to start. I would not suggest getting a car here unless you want a driveway ornament.
I personally wouldn`t even give them 1 out of 5 star rating...they would get a zero!!!!

I will not be purchasing a vehicle from these guys. My fiance and I are from Waterloo and were going there to see a `07 Hyundai Elantra that they featured on their website. My fiance called and asked if the blue `07 manual Hyundai Elantra was still available. The man on the phone said yes, it`s sitting out in the lot.
We drove to Marion and arrived at the lot at 5:40, twenty minutes before advertised closing time.... view more Salesman JJ greeted us and told us to let him know if we had any questions. After looking around at their (unimpressive) inventory, and not seeing the aforementioned Hyundai, we asked if he could unlock a different car for us to check out, we weren`t even asking to test drive it. JJ said, &quot;Uh, what did you want to know?&quot; We said we just wanted to get a better look at the car, look inside, etc. JJ said, &quot;Uh, we`re closing, we already put the keys away....&quot; The other man working said, &quot;Yeah, we`re closing, maybe you could come back tomorrow...&quot; My fiance said, &quot;Well, I called earlier about a `07 Hyundai Elantra. I mentioned I`d be coming in to see it...&quot; JJ said, &quot;Oh yeah! You said you were coming in with your Dad!&quot; Um, no. I told them we had come from Waterloo to look at a car that they specifically told us they had, then they said that it sold on Saturday. B.S.
At the very least, these guys have terrible/no customer service skills. When we mentioned that we had come from Waterloo they still made no offer to let us see inside any car because they had already put the keys away! Even though they were still 10 minutes away from closing.

My used cars will only come from Affordable Auto!
My family has had the best experience with Affordable Auto! We have purchased 3 cars from them. The first time we went into the lot we were limping in, in our car we rolled and had just wrecked in Wyoming. We couldnt afford a huge car payment. Tim worked with our budget and even took the beat up little junk car as a trade-in towards the cost. When we told him how much we were able to pay each month he upped his offer... view more on the trade-in so the monthly payment was down to what I could afford. What dealer do you know who would do that!! Affordable Auto even has the carfax on the cars if they are available. After purchasing a car with a 1 month warranty we experienced a couple minor problems. We called Tim and he got right on it. He even worked with a nearby shop so we wouldnt have to travel back to Marion to get it fixed. My warranty is up now but I havent had any other problems that werent just wear and tear expected for the year . Tim gave the offer to call him any time something goes wrong with any of the cars and he will find the best price available. It is a relief to know that I always have and can trust Tim and the entire Affordable Auto team. I wouldnt hesitate to send my friends and family to Affordable Auto and also plan to buy my future cars there! Go see what they have to offer and ask for Tim! Tell him I sent ya ;-)

DONT GO THERE!!! the people there are rude and have no problem feeling like you DONT matter. The employees are only there to have a good time and mess around or going to dinner reservations. I went there in hopes of getting a good car and while there cars are nice and the detailer wo took the time to take me for a test drive was nice the owner and sales persons are awful. i was told (after an trade in value hardly wo... view morerth my time) that if i didnt like it i was more than welcome to run the 5 million dollar business. you would think with a 5 millon dollar business you could afford to dress and act respectful!!!
