"Honesty isn't something you would typically associate with a small used car dealership, but it was what I got with J&M. Jack (the owner) was very helpful throughout the process. I received straight-up answers to my questions with no b.s., pressure, or surprises when I arrived.
I was hesitant to visit this dealership based on some of the reviews I found elsewhere, but would not hesitate to recommend them after my experience.
I have worked on cars for nearly two decades both as a hobby and professionally, and want to clear a few things up about this (and many other) small car lots. Typically, when cars are traded in, they are sold at auction. Cars can end up at the complete opposite end of the country if the price is right for the dealership. Although it can happen, your car may have started out in a different state. If you don't want a car from a particular region (i.e. the "rust belt"), do your research. Speaking of that, if you are thinking of spending a few thousand dollars or more on a car, get the carfax on it and/or have it inspected. J&M sent me the carfax without any issues as soon as I asked, and I was happy with what I saw there and at the actual dealership. The car had a few scratches and dings, and a few other minor issues, but I was ok with that for the price. Know what you are getting yourself into when you are buying a well-used car. If you are the type of person that relies on dealer warranties to keep your car running, you should honestly stick to that and not buy a car from any small lot. If you maintain your cars (or have them maintained) and realize that older cars will need a little bit of work, J&M is awesome. I got my 2006 VW GLI well below book, and it is pretty clean for being 11 years old. I changed the oil immediately after buying the car (always assume a used car needs an oil change), and drove it nearly 500 miles home without any issue the very next day (today).
My only critique is really the lack of parking spaces. J&M is sort of wedged between two other car lots, and has very little room to park. Street parking is an option if you want to walk around the block, I guess. The neighborhood is older, but J&M is not in the middle of the hood or attached to a sketchy body shop and surrounded by razor wire like another dealership I went to earlier that day.
J&M has clean well-used cars for cheap. Don't expect a perfect used car from anyone, ever. Do your research, and you can get a great car for a good deal.
