    I went in just kind of looking around. I had no idea what I wanted to buy, but knew I definitely wanted to replace my Cobalt. The sales guy showed me around,... asked what kind of driving I do, what is most important to me in a car etc. He didn't pressure me into buying anything. I'm sure he gets commission but he told me "Let me show you what we've got. If a car is for you, it's for you. If it's not, it's not." I decided on a Subaru Forester. It's my first time owning one, and I'm really happy with it. No problems at all.

    I was looking for a used vehicle for my new job, as I would be driving long distances to eleven different counties. I did not trust my Spectra, so I was... referred here. I had a fantastic experience from start to finish with the tall guy. The owner was very nice and helpful as well. I will recommend this place to others!!

    I have purchased three cars from Preferred Used Cars in Binghamton, and I will not go anywhere else to get my next used car. They have all been great cars... that have lasted. I still have two of the three cars I purchased here and my daughter loves her Hyundai that we purchased two months ago. Any issues we had were resolved quickly. I would recommend this dealership to anyone looking for a used vehicle.

    I recently brought my older Dodge Ram in for an inspection, and to find out what I needed to get my truck to pass inspection. I talked to the mechanic,... and he told me what I would need and I was very surprised by the price tag. I then asked the salesman about the Dodge Ram out front. I took it for a test drive and loved it. So with the money I was going to spend to fix my old truck, I financed the new truck!! I fully enjoyed the people I talked to, and they even gave me a good deal on my trade in. I was extremely surprised by how friendly they were and how fast they got my truck ready. I have already sent a few friends to look, and one has already bought another car there they are very happy with. I enjoyed the experience, and I no longer dread going to car dealerships!! Thank you guys, you made this experience very easy and enjoyable!! Full Recommendation!!

    40 days after purchasing a vehicle from them, the inhibitor switch went out. The repair costed about $450. Yes, it was slightly over the 30 day warranty... but it was only 40 days. I asked them if they would be willing to pay for half of it since it was only 40 days. That is entirely reasonable. Any good dealership would have done that. No from these guys though! Once they make a sale on you, they do very little to help you out I tried talking with the owner, Gary. Out for 10 days. Place is awful how they're not willing to work with customers. Do not buy from this place if you're looking for a peace of mind. They will not work with you. Don't take the chance and go somewhere else.

    We received a phone call from Sean 46 days after purchase. When Sean called, he explained the issue he had, but the vehicle was already repaired. We e...xplained that he no longer had a warranty and it was an in-house warranty. We would have helped him and brought the vehicle into OUR repair facility. Parts purchased by us are discounted 20% (or more) which we would have passed on to Sean. The labor would be at our cost. The total cost for the repair would have been about half of the $450 he paid. Sean demanded we pay the bill. We said you are out of the warranty and since you already made the repair, we can't help you. The 30 day warranty was explained to Sean at time of purchase.

    Owner is more concerned about his wallet than customer service. Vehicle broke 15 minutes after driving off lot. I immediately returned. Was told he would... order the parts and repair. Days later no call, I called he told me that the part was to expensive. I ended up ordering the part myself and repairing myself. Was told if I wanted a perfect car to go down the street and buy a new. So much for any kind of warranty.

    You seem confused. The vehicle did not break, the window switch was hard for you to operate so I offered to put in a new one. You agreed to split the... cost of the switch and I offered to install it for free. You took it upon yourself to buy the switch online (which I sent you a check for half the cost, $40.95) and install it yourself. That was your decision. Let's not forget that I also gave you $695 off the price of the car. Doesn't sound like I care more about my wallet than customer service now, does it?

    My husband and I recently purchased a car from this dealership and we couldn't be happier! We were in desperate need of a vehicle and they really pulled... through for us. They put us in a great car...super clean for a VERY good price. The sales staff was so accommodating. When we need another car, Preferred Used Cars will be our first stop!

    I am not a customer of this dealership yet but do hope to be in the very near future. I am in need of a 2nd vehicle and have truly heard nothing but good... experiences from people who have dealt here. I see many license place brackets with their name on it...so that says something to me. Also, having worked many years in a large, multi-franchise auto group I can honestly say that the cars I see with Preferred's tag on it look alot better than many used cars I have seen sell for a ton more money. They also don't seem to turn into rust buckets quickly after being touched up for cosmetic reasons to make a sale. Actually Preferred had a vehicle I was very much interested in that was consistently serviced where I came from and when I called on it (after I had already verified it's history) - I was never led to believe anything that wasn't true. I called on a Monday and it was however sold the previous Saturday so I missed out. I just felt compelled to write this "review".

    I emailed them about a car and never heard back from them. When I called them they were unsure at first about the car and then they told me it was sold.they... told me they would have another one in a couple of weeks and check back with them. As a buyer I thought they would want my name and number to contact me when they get it in. I will not be calling them back...
