Also, If I decide to follow through with purchasing the car, We'll spend a weekend in detroit most likely, never been...look forward to it! is there something I should definetly not miss?!??!

Thanks in advance for all your help

Well I googled it and I actually have driven past it a few times. It's in a questionable at best neighborhood, on Greenfield south of Warren which on the east side of Greenfield is Dearborn and the west side is Detroit. My friend lives over there and it's not great (his homes been broken into twice...within two weeks). Usually dealers in those kind of areas have bad cars, but if it's something you really are looking for then come see it by all means. But I would hate for you to come all that way to get something not worth it. That part of Dearborn is colloquially called East Dearborn and is very high in people of arabic descent. The highest concentration in the nation. There's a lot of interesting arabic type places, museums, what have you in East Dearborn...none of which that I have been to, but I hear they are good. Detroit can be an interesting place to visit though for sure. The cars on their site look decent...just really research what you're getting into.

Those kinds of dealerships generally get most of their cars from auctions and trade ins from other dealerships. I wouldn't buy a car from them, period. The area is nothing to worry about during business hours. It's not even that bad at night, other than the fact that it borders Detroit.

If you're going to be in that area anyway for a weekend, I'd check out "The Henry Ford". Formerly known as Greenfield Village and Henry Ford Museum. What the heck kind of car is it that you'd come all the way from MO to look at it, let alone buy it?

When we were looking for a used car -- we also checked them out -- my DH (a previous Engineer) did NOT feel comfortable with them at all -- questioned where they're getting their cars from...

We bought our first used car from Southgate Lincoln-Mercury -- was the BEST experience we've had -- new/used. We bought our second used car from the same place -- which was VERY far for us.

We've now moved to SC bought a used car here -- was the WORST experience ever. I'm afraid Southgate Lincoln Mercury spoiled us -- they are #1 in used car sales -- I would even entertain going back to MI buying from them, and driving it back to SC, after our bad experience here. We bought a car from a Ford Dealer here to find out as soon as we left the dealership you could not pump gas into the vehicle -- the gas would flow out all over the ground -- at $4.00 a gallon we were NOT happy.

Anyway I LOVE Southgate Lincoln Mercury Used Car -- Dennis Karp -- only sells the best (or at least they did). This was all within the last 1.5 years.

Sorry - but when I have a good experience I just have to share.

mytjo95,
Did you ever do business with Q motors in Dearborn? I know it was a while ago, but I just wondered if you ended up buying from them and how it went. I saw a car I liked from them, but after reading some of the responses you got, I got worried.

Thanks!
