I had been kicking around the idea of surprising my wife with a nice 50th birthday present for a while, and a vintage VW Bus fit into my idea of "surprise."... Living only about 10 minutes North of Cardiff Classics, i have seen it many times and know they get in some very clean cars. I drove by and saw this really clean grey 1974 Pop-top Westfalia Bus. I got out to go look at it and was greeted by Brent who showed me the Bus. He was extremely knowledgeable with the Bus' many features, and what really sold me was the custom central A/C unit along with a custom mounted Honda generator in the engine compartment. Brent knew the history of it, along with the engine size and above all was a no pressure or hassle guy, which I really like. I drove it, went home and thought about it for a couple nights and came back to purchase it. My wifes b-day wasn't for another 3 weeks, so they were kind enough to hold in in their service garage out of the elements until it was time for the surprise unveiling at the La Costa Resort. We couldn't be happier!
This is the 2nd car i have purchased in the past 1.5 years from Cardiff Classics. The 1st was a silver '02 Jax XK-R Convertible for my new wife which she... loves. A Steel Gray '01 Dodge Viper GTS caught my eye a few weeks back as I drove by. I drove down and asked Brent if he could take me for a ride in it and he took me on a great ride, and really knew how to work the gearbox and demonstrate the cars abilities. I slept on it and came back the next day with my checkbook and took the car home. So far so good and want thank Brent and Tom for their ease of doing business with.
My husband and I had been searching for a pre-owned BMW 335i with the Sportline Pkg or M-Sport Pkg the past few weeks. After finding what we thought was... a good 2013 at a dealer in San DIego, we drove out from TX with the idea of purchasing it, only to come to find out that when our bank ran the Carfax just before they cut the check, they saw it had been in an collision and had frame damage. Needless to say, that deal fell apart pretty quick. Enter Cardiff Classics. We came across Cardiff Classics website and saw what looked to be a nice white 2012 335i with the Sportline Pkg and relatively low miles. I called them and Brent picked up the phone. If anyone has seriously considered a pre-owned 335i, you know how many different crazy options and packages that are available, and aren't available. Brent proceeded to tell me in detail what options came and did not come on the Sportline vs the M-Sport equipped cars. I was shocked to find out that the "Sport" Seats didn't even come standard on the M-Sport cars much less the Sportlines. Luckily their Sportline DID have the "Sport" Seats and also had the Back-Up Camera, which many don't. We drove up to their dealership, looked it over and decided to take it for a drive. Loved the car and went back to the dealer and met the owner Tom, who was very helpful and expedited the purchase process as much as possible while we were dealing with a Wells Fargo that was closing and we wanted to do the car before they closed. We can't remember a better car buying experience in recent memory and can't wait to enjoy our new 335 home in TX :)
I had been in the market for a fun run-around car that was reliable and had some nice luxurious features. I noticed Cardiff Classics had a nice black SC430... Lexus on their lot so i stopped by. I believe the guy that came to greet me was named Brent and he showed me the car and answered all of my questions. Being a business owner, my schedule was hectic and i didn't get in to actually drive the car for another 2 weeks, which i'm pretty sure they would have written me off, but they didn't. When i called back, Brent was very nice and asked when i'd like to come in. I did so the following week and liked it. I also wanted to thank Katie and Tom for their patience as i searched for the best financing rates, which their credit union ended up providing. I have had the car for almost a month now and LOVE IT. Thank you again!
I was in the market for a fun Summer car that I could drive once or twice a week when I didn't feel like driving my MDX. I used to have a Cadillac Allante... back in the early 90's and like it. I came by Cardiff Classics and saw they had a beautiful white one with 28,000 miles. I came by twice before I test-drove it. Being a lady in her late 50's, I take my time and don't make quick decisions. Each time Brent was great and didn't pressure me. He answered all my questions and thanked me for coming in. On my 3rd time by I asked for a test-drive, which we went on. I really liked it, but told him I needed a night or two to sleep on it. A few days later I called him and said I would like to purchase it pending they fixed the antenna and rattling underneath (which was a bad exhaust hanger), which they did. I came to pick it up a week later and have had it for 2 months now and love it. Thank you Cardiff Classics!
