Made initial contact inquiring about an S2000. They were prompt to respond. Reading over reviews that stated they pad their fees, I asked them about an itemized breakdown in cost and informed them that I would be bringing in my own financing. Never got a response back.

They use the bait and switch way of doing business. They leer you into their dealership with a low price on their website and then they keep adding fees and profit until the price is ridiculous. Not a very transparent way of doing business. I would never recommend this dealership to anyone.

The dealer had great customer service but that's the problem. Everyone was friendly but they were there to sell a car. Every rebate they offered I had to jump through hoops and I missed one now the deadline has passed. Even the vehicle was nice but hid key flaws. Overall nice salesmen but say no to the rebates or free stuff. Just take it off the cost of the car

Wanted added dealer fee of $995 to sell me the car! Should just add that to the price, instead of being deceptive.

La información que pusieron del carro estaba equivocada. No dicen que el carro había chocado y el titulo dice "Salvage" Asi no puede ser refinanciado por ningún banco. Maneje más de una hora con la intención de comprar el auto y me salen con eso.

For the car I wanted, the price seemed good but when I got there they told me that I have to pay 3500$ for fees while it shouldn't be more that 1500$. They said we get 1000$ for our paper works and 1000$ for DMV and 1300 for tax. It is insane because all the dealers get around 200- 300$ for both DMV+paper works. They just wasted my time to get there and they behave so rude. If you think your time is valuable don't trust their prices they finally ask for much more money than every other dealers

I talked with Marcos and he said the vehicle wasn't there yet but was receiving some cleanup (or maintenance) and would be available in about 1 week (1-1/2 - 2 weeks ago). I have sent another request for information, but was never contacted back yet

Called in but spoke to a sales rep. Asked questions and he was in a rush to get off the phone. Rude. Drove 4 hours to go see the s2000, side marker lights were hanging down, car was dirty, looked like it has been neglected, we left right away, definitely not a presentable dealer

The dealer originally posted the car at $20,999. They wouldn't come down in price or even entertain the idea of coming down, then the next day they went up in price to $22,999. They since have lowered to $21,799. Don't know how they are in business because they definitely aren't motivated to sell cars. Wasted my time.

I called to ask about a specific car, and the dealer told me it was there for me to look at. I drove well out of my way to see the car within the hour and when I arrived they said that the owner's father was out using that car, that it is still for sale, but is not available to be looked at and they didn't know when it would be. Your best bet is to go to ANY other dealer before you go to this one. They are dishonest.

Genuinely disinterested with helping potential buyers. Prices are not on the vehicles so you have to rely in your smartphone. Cars were not cleaned professionally inside (I looked at five). The website lists CASH ONLY price which has a tiny disclaimer you are sure to miss (like I did) at the bottom of the web page. Overall opinion of this place - Shady.

i visited this dealer today to see a 2010 camaro LT2 RS the vehicle was said to not have ever been in any accident but.... there were clear signs the car had an entire front end replaced, the core support was pulled out from damage the grille was damaged from when the paint was buffed, There were at least 20 dings on the car, every thing besides the roof and trunk need painted, and much more was wrong paint and body wise, the rear tires were completely bald and completely flat there was not a hint of any tred on them, every rim was gashed. there were carpet stains threw out the car, it was advertised as a non smoker car it was absoutly not the previous owner was most definitely a heavy smoker. The sales man Freddy was rude to begin with. He said that all the body could be fixed by some one for $50. are you kidding me?, working for a body shop i knew absolutly there was at the least $3000 in paint and body repair needed. I wasn't offered or would have wanted to take it for a test drive. absoutly terrible service. Also after pointing out all of the very very obvious damage and problems they would not work with the price all they kept pushing was "well it drives fine so thats all that matters".....terrible place to buy a car
