Thumbs down Jeepies- Nashville, TN

First off I will not ask for sympathy. This is Just a review of the business and my detailed experience with the establishment.
I purchased a Jeep Wrangler X 2005 with 72,000 miles in “good faith” after a short test drive not driving over 40MPH on the back road behind Jeepies. After signing an “as is” statement and preparing to drive the Jeep home I realized I had made the worst decision of my life. I had to use the interstate for transport but I quickly noticed that driving over 55 MPH my vehicle was “darting” into other lanes and figured it might be something small like my wheels were out of line. Boy was I wrong. After about 100miles/200miles through the trip home my Check Engine light came on when a loud “knocking noise” came to my attention. I pulled my vehicle to the side of the road around 11:00 pm. The next morning I called the man I purchased the vehicle from. He said he would assist me in repairs. I towed my vehicle to garage and after a new cam shaft I acquired a $1500 dollar bill. Now after the Jeep was running well I had to figure out the problem with the steering capability. I took it to another garage and the total bill with tow was around another $1500. The Jeep has had more problems since these bills; and stayed at the shop longer then I actually got to drive the vehicle. After driving the vehicle for 24 hours after all repairs were completed I traded it in for a new Jeep at a reputable company in my hometown.
Total cost of Jeep: $13000
Total cost of repairs: $3500
What I got when I traded the vehicle in: $9500
Like I said. Im not asking for sympathy over a poor decision on my part. I am only warning future customers of these “big city” con artists that will tell you ANYTHING to get your money. Do your research, look around, and always drive the Jeep to a trusted mechanic that will give you his honest opinion.

Also there are tons of others who "have been had" from JEEPIES. Just wanted to post this under the TN Jeep site to warn others.

Me and my wife have lost multiple nights of sleep over this poor decision. I should have done research (like I usually do).

Look at the reviews of this place as I have posted them on every major review site possible. If I can only warn others from buying Jeeps there my goal is accomplished. The world is different today and not many "trustworthy" people out there anymore. I guess my advice is to go to a Local dealer with a long standing reputation to give excellent service with warranties. Live long and Prosper

Glad you posted this. Have you reported them to the BBB? (Better Business Bureau)

I just purchased a 93 YJ, but before I bought it I shopped around for a few months.

The one thing I noticed about Jeepies is EVERY single one of their jeeps is priced around the same. REGARDLESS what is on the jeep. 10,999 for all of their jeeps all kinds of mileage and such. That right there seemed weird to me. Plus their website it terrible, its nice but there is absolutely zero information

Sorry about that.

Don't buy jeeps at jeepies! I purchased a 2000 wrangler from there . I'm assuming he showed me a fake car fax or something. Besides having a ton, and I mean a ton of issues with the jeep. I traded it in for a new jeep rubicon. But it turns out it was involved in an accident and the odometer was wrong. I would suggest not purchasing a vehicle through him...........

I filed a complaint on the BBB- the owner gave me a generic response which I did not think was very relevant to my situation.

Jeepies takes pride in accommodating their customers needs. This was an unfortunate situation, but hope that consumers understand that there was much more to this transaction than has been explained. Jeepies will continue to provide excellent customer service and be your one stop Jeep shop.

LOL what a fraud
