South Chicago Auto Auction of Sibley LLC BUYERS BEWARE!! Harvey, Illinois
4th of May, 2011 by User324277
Hello to all !! Please read this one carefully. I am a seasoned car buyer and a mechanic, that thought I was really getting a great deal at this place of business. I was very wrong!! very , very wrong. To the tune of around $10,000 all together on three cars. I usually never buy a car without first hearing it run or test driving it and looking all thru the vehicle. Well this is the first and the last time it will ever happen again. This report I am writing is the truth!! This business may have some good cars, i did see some!! that were driven in front of the bidders. The cars are driven through fairly quickley as the bidding starts, many that were noisy were driven right thru without even getting bid on because they were getting ready to die on the spot. All three cars I purchased had major problems,check engine,flat tires,leaking fluids,not able to open hood to check any thing. Make sure to read your bidders paddle (the fine print about all of the fees,that will be additionally tacked on to your purchase!! its all right in front of you) I was an idiot and did not read this. People are allowed to veiw the cars/trucks for one hour before the bidding starts, I was late and could not. My Bad!! There is some funny business going on here!! for sure because I heard bidders saying that non of the cars we were allowed to look at were coming thru the line,Red Flag!! Also i noticed that there were bidders that would bid on certain cars to get someone else to go higher (pin holeing) I think it refered to. When I picked up my cars, I recogzied some of the bidders!! They were employees at this place. I suppose non of this is actually illegal, but the bottom line is most of the cars are repos and are in bad shape. They will not give you your money back no matter what!! I did read that this company had been sued and closed numerous times but it just keeps coming back, under a different owner and name. Obviously they are not going away, they make too much money to stop. Just learn from my mistake at $10,000 dollars do not buy or bid on a car you have veiwed and heard run with the hood open and looked at fluids and at the instrument cluster for warning lights. Its simple!! And do not bid on any car that you did not get to look at!! I think that they should be out of business!!! I am willing to tell my story on any radio/tv/internet/ with my face and name exposed, I had risked my young sons lives while driving these un safe cars
home all the way to yorkville IL I had brought a trailer just in case one of the cars was not drivable,it was not!! Before you take posession of your vehicle,it is just inside the gate and you have to sign a paper that you had taken delivery of it. Then! it is pulled out of the gate and it is running and is pulled off to the side and left running. Then gate is locked so you can not go in. One of my cars was leaking oil and antifreeze and had two flat tires!!! There is no way it would have made it home. This place needs to be shut down.
