Original review: May 1, 2023

I am a 73 year old woman who was overcharged for the purchase of a Dodge Promaster City Cargo Van on 11/29/22. TOTAL PRICE: $34,845, no extras, trade in amount $14,000 for Nissan Van. Tried to trick me into a lease, I said no. Told me to get a bank check for $31,114.81, which I did. I came back, and they brought the van to me and then gave me a form and said, trade in refund would come later. I came back and they said, NO, the cost was $45,114.81. I am filing a complaint for a refund of $7,291.22 AND the adjustment of the extra fees and taxes charged on the total. I went to the dealership twice after the sale, and the salesman was "never there" and I was brushed off. This is a dishonest dealership that cheats people. (Don't bother with BBB, they don't help at all.)

    Please to those reading this, buying a car at major world is a MAJOR MISTAKE. See for yourself how in 2019, people have sued this company before. I wish I would have seen this before: **. I want to make sure I help as many people not to fall for this company. Long story short I purchased a VW Tiguan 2017, from them back in Aug 2020, for $20k, plus 2k warranty. I had problems soon after. I brought the car to their mechanics and was given a superficial diagnostic and my car still had issues that were not fixed.

    I tried to get out the car within the 30days. They said it was not possible and just kept saying they will fix the issue. By February of 2021, by this time I didn’t want to go back to them, I took my car to an actual VW dealer. I ended up having to put over $4k in repairs, only for the car to be worthless by April 2022. It was burning oil, and by the end I had to put oil every 100 miles. This car is current part of class action lawsuit, due to the water pump. So in my desperation that I need a car, they did buy me out of the car, because I drove there and literally was not able to drive away, the oil was done. HUGE MISTAKE, I purchased another car with them, really hoping they would not scam me twice. SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER.

    I purchased a Honda Accord 2017, for $20k plus 4K warranty, in April 2022. Since April to December of the same year, I brought my car back to try to get it fixed 5 times (several issues): axil, breaks, a piece that holds the wheel. If I came in for three complaints only one would get fixed. They kept wasting my time, having me bring my car back in, due to their negligence or incompetence. My car still has issues. One issue in particular began after they replaced the axil, which is still my main issue. I had to bring it to a Honda dealer. Note: I had to go to a dealer in Stamford CT, because one thing they won’t tell you is the warranty locks you to their service department within 25miles.

    I’m still dealing the Honda dealer to get my car fixed, but it requires I leave my car. And as you can imagine this is a lot since I have to rent a car in the meantime. In the repairs I had done, I spent over $1000, of which the warranty covered $0. This is what they fixed: replace cooler hoses and clamps, had to do a break flush (which they failed to do so at Major World, where I paid to get my breaks changed), replaced automatic transmission oil, new spark plugs, and a valve cover gasket replacement, which was leaking for a while. And the Honda dealer said that had been going on for a while and it was something that was so obvious to see once you even check the car.

    When I told them the items that had to be fixed at the Honda dealer, they tell me it’s all maintenance things. Then why, during the 5x I took my car their, they did not tell me these things had to be fixed? It took me taking my car somewhere else to fix them. I want nothing from this low value, zero integrity company. They sell you an overpriced car with so many issues, and they do not have the decency to actually fix it when you bring it to them. THE ONLY THING I WANT NOW IS FOR NO ONE ELSE TO FALL FOR THEIR SCAM. IT WOULD BE A MAJOR MISTAKE TO BUY A CAR FROM THEM. Go anywhere else, stay far away from Major Mistake World.

    It's complete insane to buy an used car in Major World Dealership. I purchased one and 3 months needed to replace a lot parts: Transmission pants, Axle, control arm, Brake AC sensor. Even I paid extended warranty that didn't paid the claim. I'm trying to get my money back from NVP without success.

    I bought a Honda Crv 2017 exl, 2020 February I really pick the touring color beige fully loaded and I had the cashiers check they ask me for, they even took me to the bank, ok last minute I was told after waiting 3 hours that the title could not be found, so they gave me a choice and told me either you take the red exl or the Toyota rav 4, let me remind you it was the start of the pandemic so they rush me because they was closing down due to Corona, but they trap me with a crv that had several problems that I had experience since day one like mold smells, water in the vehicle and a aftermarket front glass and a tailgate that was bent, today that car has a couple problems, but I blame the city of N.Y for keeping Rats like this still working to fool the customers and politicians getting back door money to keep them in business.

    Went in to look at cars in my budget. The sales person took my ID probably just to make sure it’s valid, second time around he took it and never gave it back to me, being 9 months pregnant I’m not thinking as well but it’s almost been a month and they haven’t mailed my Id to me even though I’ve called them multiple times.

    This is one of the easiest car dealership to buy from. They help customers. Will have a wide choice of cars and colors to choose from. The process is pretty simple so anyone can do this and come out happy.

    Purchase my car from Major World and I was given a warranty for the car, 5 months now and the car warranty hasn't being, sent through the company in order for me to the benefits that's of the warranty. Keep calling the finance Manager he keeps giving me the run a round. These people are not true to their words. They are all nice when you get there, but once you made a purchase and you're out of there with you car, that's it with them. They just give you the run around when you have problems. Stay away if you can.

    I bought a car that was sold to me without full disclosure that it is branded lemon law on my title. Major sold me a vehicle without a full disclosure of the proper Carfax. Please help me with this case.

    I brought a 2013 Chevy Traverse in February 2016. They tricked me into paying more by using capital one auto finance, when I had Municipal Credit Union voucher. When my car had a airbag recall they made pay for it in Full. They represent Chevy and the USA. I don’t think I will ever buy an American car again.

    If you don’t listen when I say DO NOT GO TO THIS DEALER!!!! Then I hope you listen to me when I say that Once you get there RUN... RUN FAST!!!! They do not disclose that their cars are "SALVAGED" vehicles. Their office is like a meeting hall. People everywhere, offensive music blasting & absolutely no organization. The poor guy they sent looking for a car to show me was wandering around in the rain for 30 minutes when I got up & left. I left there ready to give up looking for a car. It was a TERRIBLE experience. GIVING THEM ONE STAR HURTS!!! But it was required.
