Selling lemons

Asked to take a used car for an inspection with a mechanic, they said they don't allow that. A huge red flag! I pressed for the reason why, and they simply said it's a rule that they have and they won't allow it. They said if a mechanic came to the dealership and checked it at the lot that could be fine, but 95% of mechanics don't do mobile inspections and they're not as reliable. Public Wholesale Auto is the first dealership in California that doesn't let you check the car with a mechanic. ALWAYS GET A USED CAR CHECKED BY A TRUSTED MECHANIC BEFORE BUYING IT.


Great deal on used vehicles

The owner Jay was very helpful in giving us a great deal for my son. Honest about the cars and prices. Definitely recommend to others!


Willing to negotiate with customers

Bought a car from Jay awhile ago. Was extremely helpful with pricing. Jay will help you find what you need and even negotaite with whatever your situation is. Recommend this place to anyone looking for a well priced car.


Not willing to negotiate at all...

This review is soley about customer service. I called and asked about a car and asked him if he was willing to negotiate a little on price. I wanted to pay cash with no financing. He told me no and that lots of people were calling for the car, and that his taxes and fees would amount to be almost $1000 more on top of the price. I thought that was crazy. Then he told me I could put my full amount of cash down and we could finance the is that making a deal???? And what would be the point of that if I'm trying to give a large sum of money but still have to finance for the rest? I felt like if that were the case, I might as well go to a new car dealership. Anyways, I didn't end up going to the lot because there's no point if he's not even trying to make any kind of deal.

Dealer response

Sorry, I wish I could make that adjustment for you, but we were to far apart. Good luck


SHOP HERE! Wonderfull and honest

I was on a tight budget and havig money issues the owner "Jay" knew this and helped me find a vehicle that was good for me. I know my way around vehicles better then most and loved how good shape the vehicle was for the price he gave me and worked with me on. after my purchase the next day my vehicle blew a hose that i knew about and even i thought it was fine. Being the hinest true man that he is he offered to tow my vehicle to his shop and fixed it free of charge. And every since i have not had a single issue with my vehicle and i love it. I reccomend this place to EVERYONE! Everything said and done hes, honest and upfront with you, and hes very helpfull caring and treats his customers like family.


Good Car buying experience

Called Jay and he answered all questions on the phone. Arrived at location, car was available as discussed on the phone. He provided an environment with low stress in purchasing a vehicle and up front about price and trade in options. We did purchase a vehicle from him and feel confident we got a fair price and quality car.


nice used cars

I bought a used car form these guys a couple weeks ago. Nice price and easy process.

Dealer response

Thank you for your review.



My mom and I had been out car shopping most of the day, utilizing the internet as our source of reference. I had wrote down several cars that I wanted to see and as the day went on, I thought I am never going to find a car that is reasonably priced as well as reliable from a dealer who is helpful and honest. Well as I was living a car lot up the street, Jay's business caught my eye. We drove in and were automatically greeted by Jay. He asked several questions in regards to what I was looking for and what size was my family and etc..... My previous vehicle had been in a wreck and I needed a reliable vehicle. I feel confident that is what I got. It has only been a couple of days, but so far so good. Thank you Jay.
