Coby Motor Company

Off to see a car there this weekend but can't find any reviews of the dealer good or bad.

The fact that I found no bad stuff is probably good though.

Anyway just wondering if anyone has had any dealings with them.

If its the one on the old Dublin road, then I thought it changed hands recently.
Anyhow, regardless of how old they are, if you buying from them or any other dealer (main dealer or not), then get a competent independent mechanic to inspect it before you buy the car.
Also make sure that they have all paperwork for the car and that the warranty is detailed in writing.

The only thing I know about coby is that they're trying to sell an alfa gt that's overpriced by about 5-6 k

Went to look at a 166 a few years ago there....
It was a manual 166 with an auto dashboard ---- maybe it was an auto with a manual box....

Ok no worries - saw a car I liked there - anyway its now sold

A year old or not - very helpful to see other people's inputs

That would've helped me avoid <snip> - who sold me a horrendous used car and my steering gave out 10 days into driving it. Stay clear of them <snip>. They seem to just crop up as a new business every couple of months I recently learned. Wish I knew that before.
