Are your prices negotiable?

We absolutely negotiate. Our prices are always negotiable and we try to give the best deal possible. If you are interested in one of our vehicles please email or call us with your offer.

Do you offer financing?

Yes we do. Your credit rating and the monthly payment you can afford will have a direct impact on what vehicle you can purchase. What you’re buying also has an effect on the terms of the loan. The price of the car, down payment or trade-in value will also have an impact on the interest rate and the length of the loan. Good credit or bad we will do our best to get you a loan that works for you.

What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept cash, certified checks,  and cashiers checks drawn on US Banks in US funds.

What are your hours of operation?

We are open Monday through Friday from 9:00am-5:00pm, Saturday: 10am-4pm, and Sunday we are available by appointment. Please give us a call or email in advance if you are interested in test driving a vehicle on the weekend  or after hours and we will be more than happy to show it to you.

Do you accept trade-ins?

It depends on the vehicle’s year, make & model, mileage, and overall condition.  If you are interested in one of our vehicle’s for sale and would like to make a trade, please give us a call or stop by our office. We will be more than happy to assess your vehicle and let you know if it is eligible for a trade. 

Do you offer consignment services?

Yes we do. If you are trying to sell your car or know of someone selling a car please let us help you.  We will have you fill out a consignment agreement which outlines exactly what we agree to sell your car for and exactly what our commission will be.  The vehicle will be left with us along with the title and proof of insurance. Once the consignment agreement has been agreed upon we will safety inspect the vehicle, smog, and perform any service work that is required. We will detail the vehicle, take photographs,  and advertise it in many sites including our own, Auto trader, Easy ad/Photo ad, Craigslist, and many more for maximum exposure.

How often do you get new inventory?

We get new inventory almost every week. Our inventory varies weekly and is dependent upon what vehicles are available to us. Anytime we get a new vehicle in inventory we will update our website with a COMING SOON photo and brief description of the vehicle.

How do you come up with your so called best price?

All goods and services which exchange hands are priced based on supply & demand. We look at what is sold in our market and what the average transaction price is, we also utilize independent 3rd party consumer web sites and we make sure that our prices are at or below the market. If a vehicle is extremely hard to come by it might yield a slightly higher margin, vice versa if there are an excess number of a particular model in stock or something has been in inventory for an extended period of time the margin is compressed, sometimes significantly.

What type of service do you do to the cars before selling them?

We inspect each vehicle thoroughly and replace or repair any mechanical issues that are found during inspection. Everything from replacing fluids, brakes, shocks, timing belts, water pumps, head gaskets, transmissions, tires, etc. We make sure that each vehicle is up-to-date on service specifications in regards to the mileage.  All mechanical work is performed in-house at our facility. All vehicles are detailed at our shop with the highest quality cleaners, waxes, and polishes to make each car look new.

What other fees are there besides the purchase price?

The other fees include taxes, licensing, smog and documentation fees.  If you live in California taxes are based on what city you live in. For instance, San Luis Obispo, CA tax rate is 8% where as a nearby city such as Atascadero, CA is 7.5%. We take care of all paperwork with DMV so you don’t have to worry about it! We will mail your current registration and your new title will be received from DMV in 2-6 weeks.

How do I know the car is in the condition stated?

All of our vehicles have a clean title guarantee. All vehicles come with a clean Carfax or Autocheck history report to ensure that you are buying a vehicle that has accurate mileage and has not been branded as salvaged or flood-damaged. We double and triple check each vehicle to make sure it is compliant with Division 12 safety standards. Extended vehicles plans are offered at an additional cost for your protection.

Can I buy this vehicle cheaper somewhere else?

Perhaps you could attain a lower selling price, but its important not to be fooled by dealerships that focus on the "sale" price. Most negotiating dealerships will gladly give up the few hundred dollars they lose on the price of the car, because they make it up on things like the trade in, aftermarket products and accessories, financing and finance products. Consumers tend to relax during the remainder of the purchase transaction once they've negotiated the selling price, as a result they end up paying substantially more for warranties, insurance, interest rates etc. than the few hundred dollars they saved on the price in the first place. It is for this reason that our customers receive our lowest One Price for every product or service we provide. If you were to compare the actual total transaction price and payments side by side, chances are we would be much lower.

I want a discount beyond your Best Price.

We respect where you are coming from and appreciate the fact that you want to leave here feeling comfortable about your vehicle and what it cost you. Please understand that it is the unpleasant feeling of not knowing whether or not you got the lowest price that creates the need to ask for more of a discount. It is imperative that you realize that we passionately believe everyone deserves to get a great car at a great price while receiving world class service. Whether you are the Governor of California or an 18 year old serving in the Coast Guard purchasing your first car, everyone pays the exact same price... And isn't that the way it should be?

Ok fine... But I want you to throw in xxxx or I won't buy it.

Once again it is our hope that our customers understand why we do what we do, more so than just what we do. We are about creating a car shopping experience that exceeds our customers expectations. We feel that any person should be able to go out and buy a vehicle and be treated with respect and pay an extremely fair price, regardless of their negotiating skills. If we deviated from this philosophy even in the slightest bit, who we are as a company and what we say would not mean anything.
