After this "situation" one of my work buddies recommended I was back to square one, but this time I was decided to do things in a right manner. A week later, I won an auction for another Eclipse. I got the same story from the seller, deposit needed etc… I told him that I will deposit the entire amount

Good/bad used car dealerships in the IE area.2007-06-13 14:44:29 by chameleo_anglicus
I'm looking to buy a newer-than-2001 used car for 10-13k* at the end of July near to Pomona/Claremont, CA. I'm happy to go further afield to buy, but the nearer the better.
Does anyone have (or know of) any good / bad experiences with a particular dealership? Reputations of said dealers?
Bonus if you or someone you know bought a car in the last 3 months and had a good (or bad) interaction with a particular salesman / F&I office / post-dealer experience.
After I test drive the car, I'd like to get it examined by a mechanic to make sure it's kosher. Suggestions in the Pomona / Claremont / inland-empire areas? What's the going rate for an examination? Any joy in persuading/not persuading dealers to let you have the car examined?
Any other advice on buying a used car...
