I recently purchased a 2009 Porsche Carrera S from Allen motors. I actually drove from Northern Ca. to purchase my car. I talked to Jim on the phone and... let him know that I was interested and had been looking for several months and to be very up front, if there were any issues as I do not want to drive 7 hours for nothing . He assured me the car was perfect. After making the drive 7 hours I was a little concerned that they knew I had just driven all that way so they would not be willing to negotiate or feel they needed to give me good service. I was happily wrong as they answered all my questions tossed me the keys and said take it out and give it a good test drive. That doesn't really happen very often with a $100K car. Finishing up the deal they did negotiate on the price and made the buying experience a piece of cake. Once I returned home I took my Porsche into the dealer and had them check everything out and they came back with " it's flawless, Perfect shape" . Jim was right, it is perfect. I would go there again with out a doubt. Thanks Jim!
I purchased a car there and within 1 month the "Service Engine Soon" Light came on the dash. It turned out that it had a defect which was the Oxygen Sensor... part of the Smog system. By law, the seller has to have the car certified for smog. Apparently, this facility does not think so; because I called Rick at that facility and he informed me that I would have to pay for that. In my idea, NO OXYGEN SENSOR WILL GO DEFECTIVE 20 DAYS AFTER PURCHASE. IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO HAVE TO SPEND A LOT OF EXTRA MONEY FIXING ITEMS THAT THEY SHOULD HAVE, THEN GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. DO NOT PURCHASE HERE!!!!!
The auto that this buyer purchased did pass smog and the certificate was used to register the car in this customers name. All of our vehicles do pass ...smog before being sold so we can register them in the new owners name,by law. All Smog Certificates are available for customers to view before purchasing a vehicle. Used vehicles sold AS-IS are just that, Used and AS-IS. Allen Motors has been in business for over 20 years and that's because we do business lawfully.
I sent some very close friends(they flew from Vegas to pick up the car) to see Jim on a car he had on the lot......they bought it sight unseen (other than... the pics on the internet)...I've known Jim for a long time and when he said the car was right that's all I needed to hear....really a Good Guy..Ronnie F.
A NOTE TO ALLEN MOTORS, JIM AND GARRETT WERE AMAZING AS MY DAD WOULD SAY. I TRADED IN MY OLD VEHICLE THAT I PURCHASED FROM THEM 3 YEARS AGO. HE GAVE ME... TOP DOLLAR FOR MY TRADE AND MADE ME A GREAT DEAL ON MY NEW JEED WRANGLER.
I had called to make an appointment with a salesperson after the dealership had failed to respond to my e-mail through Cars.com. When I got to the dealership,... the 1 ssalesperson there was on break, joking around with a friend who was getting his car detailed there. My wife and I walked around the lot and noticed a lot of the cars there had recently had body work done on them. When the salesperson got to us, we had to wait for the car we wanted to see get cleaned up. Upon a casual walk-around I saw that the drivers side lower trim was coming off. The salesperson casually remarked that that had just happened because they parked the car on the street and that it had been sideswiped. (Miraculously, the only damage was that panel. From a sideswipe!) We decided to test drive anyway. We were not allowed to do anything other than go in a straight line. 7 miles down a four lane city street in traffic is not, in my opinion, a great test drive. The whole time, the salesperson kept talking and wouldn't be quiet enough so that I could listen to engine noise. I think they are only interested in selling the 2 or 3 high end cars that they probably got at an auction and refurbished. I wouldn't ever give them business, mine or an acquaintance!
