Been buying cars from Budget Motors for 13 years.

by from Reno, NV |

Budget Motors has been the only dealership we have been buying cars from for the last 13 years. Fred and staff know how to treat potential customers and they treat loyal customers excellent. We just bought a 2011 Jeep liberty for an excellent price, financing was quick and simple, and there was no pressure at all. We asked for the CARFAX for our vehicle and it was shown to us with no hesitation, and they provide them free of charge on all their inventory on-line. That kind of transparency has always been there since day one. Thank you Budget Motors & staff for making car buying easy and hassle free for the last 13 years.

Awesome Experience!

by from Reno, NV |

I just recently purchased a Honda Accord from Budget motors. Budget makes buying a used car a breeze and they have really changed my mind about the nerve racking experience I have had in the past with other used car lots. There was no pressure and the price was easily negotiated. Budget even got me an incredible interest rate. My car was recently stolen and I needed a nice vehicle for work. budget really hooked me up during my time of need. All of the cars on the lot are beautiful and well taken car of. Kudos to whoever is doing their purchasing for them as my Honda Accord was in immaculate condition. I highly recommend anyone looking at a used vehicle to swing by budget and give them a shot.

Giving me A+ service.

by from Reno, NV |

I would like to take this opportunity to Thank Fred, the owner of Budget Motors Reno for doing a superb job of taking extra and personal care of me in the purchase of a 2008 Saturn. I had some problems with the vehicle but Fred quickly resolved them for me. A little background: I am a recent transplant from Modesto California and I didn't know what dealership to go to because I am a victim of domestic violence and my credit has suffered because of my Ex-husband - Miguel Hagelsieb living in Modesto. Fred's nephew - Michael Chemor from T-Mobile recommended me to Fred and Budget Motors when I told him I was in the market for a used car but was afraid because I always buy new vehicles. I Anyway. FRED is a great business man who is truthful and honest. I give shout outs to Fred and his staff for giving me A+ service. I highly recommend Budget Motors. Lupe Duran-Hagelsieb

Thanks to Fred and the Budget Motors Staff

by from Modesto, CA |

I started my search for my 05 Trailblazer on-line and I came about Budget Motors' inventory on cars.com. I was impressed with the selection of cars and ultimately I came across a Trailblazer. I e-mailed Budget Motors to get more information, and within minutes someone e-mailed me back with a carfax and final numbers. I drove down to Budget Motors and test drove the Trailblazer. The test drive went great and I ended up buying the SUV for a great price and the entire experience was great from start to finish. Thanks to Fred and the Budget Motors Staff I have a SUV that is safe for my family and I.

Disappointed

by from Reno, NV |

Found the car of my dreams on their website and at first everything went well. I took the car for multiple test drives and ultimately ended up purchasing. I was a little weary at first since warning lights for different things popped up on one of my test drives. The salesman disregarded the concern and blamed it on cold weather at the time. I did my own inspection and everything seemed normal. Not even half a year later and 3000 dollars later I've learned that my alignment is off due to bad parts in tires, all the brakes were in their final stages of life and multiple repairs are needed. All things that should have been caught by an established car dealership before re-selling. I had high hopes for this place but unfortunately am left disappointed. If you buy from here make sure you physically watch them run diagnostics and test all functions of the vehicle, something I wish I had done...

dealer interaction

by from south lake tahoe, ca |

Yesterday I drove from my home in Tahoe to see and test drive a vehicle I saw on their website, I was greeted by a polite professional sales representative (Tom) who showed me the vehicle and accompanied on the test drive. I was interested in the vehicle and was advised that the owner was the individual that would make the deal. I was introduced to the dealer and when I made my first offer, he immediately became abrupt and raising his voice to a level of almost yelling, I asked him several times why he was yelling, for which he had no answer. I do not if he was upset because I asked what he paid for the vehicle or my offer, he refused to discuss what he had financially in the vehicle so it is difficult to make and offer that is fair to all. I can only surmise as stated in one of his other reviews that he feels he can intimidate a women. I am a well educated and professional women and made him a reasonable cash offer. I have bought 6 vehicle in my life and honestly have never encounter this, hopefully he was just having a bad day. I just feel that if you are a women, you should know what you may encounter. I left the dealer advising them that if they where interested in my offer in the future they could call me, but I'm not sure I would like to deal with the owner if this is his normal demeanor.

Happy to be part of the Budget Motors family :)

by from Reno, NV |

From the moment I was greeted by my saleswoman (Sandy) I knew I was going to buy my car at Budget Motors. Sandy was not pushy at all and answered all my questions, no matter how stupid. I had been shopping on-line for a long time and I loved how Budget Motors was so transparent with their prices and displaying free Carfaxes on their main web site. Once I figured out which car I wanted to buy financing the car was even easier that I thought. Dennis (Finance Manager) took me step by step on how the finance game works. He was very clear with all the numbers and got me a super low interest rate. I really can't praise Budget Motors enough, thank you all for making this easy :) -Andrea

Money Hungry Owner

by from reno, nv |

I went back as a second time buyer looking for another vehicle after mine had been wrecked in accident. I was approved by the bank for vehicle I wanted to purchase, However they felt I was getting big money from insurance settlement and wanted me to front the 5K down. I don't think so.. I went to Harrys Quality Cars across the street and found same vehicle, same price with a much affordable good credit down payment. The owner of Budget Motors is money hungry. Being I am a single parent and they know that very well, I did not appreciate them trying cheat me. They lie and tell you the bank is asking for down payment. They think woman are not smart! Do not buy here! You've been warned!
