I wish I had read the reviews on the dealership before I purchased here. Romeo was very personable and there was definitely no pressure however I found Romeo to be dishonest and I paid over $2500 more than the KBB value of my car because the vehicle was not as presented. First of all I paid cash for my vehicle. Romeo disclosed that the check engine light had faults for the intake runners and showed me the code. Told me the sensors were bad but were part of the intake manifold and that there was no way to replace the sensors without replacing the intake manifold. He told me the rest of the car was working fine. The tires on back were bald and he told me he would put on two new tires. The carbon fiber trim on the interior was coming off and he told me his guys would glue the pieces back on. Before he delivered my car to me with the new tires, Romeo left for lunch while I waited another hour for my car. 1) The trim was not glued properly and came undone within a day and cut me as well as leaving carbon fiber splinters in my arm 2) The new tires were not new at all but tires that had 50% wear. I had 4 different model of tires on the car. 3) I washed the car the next day. The temporary paint fixes washed completely away and the true condition of the pain was revealed. The hood was covered in chips, there were scratched all over the car and the finish was dull. In addition there were several areas over the hood and the left fender that reflected body work. 4) The headlight washer door mysteriously popped off the day I purchased the car. 5) I discovered the passenger door lock didnt work with the remote and the driver door lock button did not work at all. The cigarette lighter and all of the 12 volts outputs were non function. There was a fault on the one and only key so that keyless ignition didnt work 6) The battery needed to be replaced. 7) Within 5 days I received vehicle errors showing faults with the parking brake, faults for the suspension system and faults on the tire pressure monitoring system. 8) Romeo lied about the intake manifold faults. Sensors can be replaced but the reason the sensors were throwing errors is because the intake manifold had been replaced with a part that did not use the sensors so the sensors were not plugged into anything. I wrote Romeo regarding these issues. It was impossible that all of the above items just went bad the week after I purchased the car. Romeo had the car for 4 months before I purchased it and it was obvious that they had covered over the many issues with the car. I easily paid $2500 over the Kelly blue book value of the car because Romeo deceitfully covered hid the problems of the vehicle. I had asked Romeo to pay $500 to help to offset the $5000+ I repairs (Ive paid $2200 so far) but he has refused to answer. If you purchase a car from Romeo 1) pay for the cancel option 2) check the car see that door locks, windows etc all work and take to a mechnic and 3) was the car immediately. Romeo is not honest so you have to protect yourself.
