I have purchased several cars from Sensible choice over the past few years, so when it was time to get a new car for my wife recently, we naturally went... to them first. The salesman, Wayne, was very knowledgeable and helpful. The owner, John, is a great guy and very reasonable (even if he is from Baltimore, lol). We found a model that fit the style we were looking for and at a price we thought was very fair. We would recommend Sensible Choice to anyone looking for a used car!
Purchased a 2008 Saturn Vue with appropriate mileage to convert to a tow-behind (motorhome), and have to say that the car has exceeded all my expectations... so far! I think I might use it also for perfectly normal "travel", it drove that well! They took care of a few minor issues before picking up the car, as they had said they would. The price was nearly $ 2000 below comparable 2008 Saturn Vue with similar mileage and condition! The buying process was simple, they were absolutely straight with no hidden fees or other tricks. Never bought a used car before (always new), but this truly was an eye-opening and positive experience!
Bought my first car here in May 2015. Everyone was helpful and honest. My car is a 2003 Hyundai Sonata and was pleased to see it had been washed and detailed... when I went to take it home! Very honest about the value of the cars and what's wrong with them. I was overwhelmed deciding what car would be best for me but they give enough space to not feel heckled into a certain car and they are very fair with prices. I plan on buying every car I get from here!
Just bought my 2nd vehicle at Sensible Choice.This time I bought a 2010 Nissan Versa for my wife.She had not even seen the car before we went to pick it... up and this car did not disappoint.It is in perfect condition with only 67000 miles.Once again it was worth the 65 mile drive from Polk County.Got a great price and my wife just adores this car.These guys always have the best prices.This exact car with higher mileage costs $2000 more in my area.I try to buy local but have never regretted driving the extra distance.I like the fact that all the same people are still there.Kris and Wayne both helped with the transaction and both of them always provide great service.I use to dread the car buying experience but these guys really make it so easy and painless. I will continue to use this dealership for my used car buying needs.Thanks for the great deal,David K.
Thanks very much David! We appreciate you taking the time to write a review. It means a lot to us. I hope all works out well with the Versa. I am ver...y happy your wife loves the car.
After traveling all the way from Palm Coast we were a little hesitant to buy from a dealer so far away. The car I initially went to see turned out not... to be the one for me but while we were there I was drawn to this little PT cruiser sitting in the back of the lot. Guess you could say it was love at first sight. The dealer was more than happy to bring it around for us and allow us to take a solo test drive (which was rather refreshing). The little car ran like a dream and we decided it was the little runabout I needed. They were terrific in price and had little or no pressure. As an unexpected bonus as we were leaving the owner (not good at names) gave us $50 to cover the gas it cost us to drive all the way over to deal with him. That is almost unheard of in this day and age and in my book gave him way more positive feedback than anything I can think of.
Thanks very much for the kind review. We appreciate your business and will strive to help you with good service in the future. Good Luck with that nic...e PT Cruiser!
I have bought five cars from John, he is always below Blue Book in prices. He is extremely honest and a pleasure to do business with. Anytime I need a... car or one of my kids needs a car I go to Sensible Choice first.
Thank you so much and I look forward to continued good business with you in the future!
I had searched for a few weeks online for a used car, I had no idea what I wanted. When I saw a car I thought I liked I read ALL the reviews for both the... dealer and that particular make. There was always a reason to keep searching. Then I saw a 2005 Mitsubishi Endeavor advertised here and again read all the reviews I could find and they were mostly positive. Having never even heard of an Endeavor I was hesitant about making the long trip from Lakeland, but I was anxious to get a new car or at least a newer car. I was so glad I made that trip. First impressions are everything, and being a woman I was nervous about how I might be treated. I looked around the lot a bit before anyone even approached me and when I told him which car I was interested in he handed me the keys and told me to take a look, and I really liked what I saw and then I took it for a drive and fell in love with it. The laid back low pressure (or should I say no pressure) atmosphere made the car buying processes easy and painless. They could not have been easier and more pleasant to work with. And they offered me a very fair price for my trade and as if that wasn’t enough, they were able to get all the paperwork taken care and I drive my new car home that same day!!! I was so glad for that hour plus drive home to really enjoy the car. For being almost ten years old it is in immaculate condition. Next time I’m in the market for a car, I would definitely consider Sensible Choice Auto.
Thanks very much Marie! We certainly appreciate your business! I hope the Endeavor gives you years of great service. You were a pleasure to deal with!... Thanks.
I spent several weeks searching online for a vehicle and found a 99 Ford Explorer Sport that I liked at Sensible Choice. It was a long trip from Polk County... but so far it has been worth it. I got there shortly before they closed after running into traffic on I-4 (go figure), but they never put any pressure on me and invited me to take my time. I'm very happy with the vehicle and I was very happy with the service at the dealership.
Thanks very much Jeff! We appreciate your business and review. Thanks.....
I had posted a "Be Careful" review on March 25, 2014. The owner John contacted me and we discussed the issue with the car. He had his people check the... car and found a problem that he was unaware of when he placed the car for sale. To make a long story short, the vehicle was repaired and I know the dealer took a loss on this deal. I must say John, Wayne and the other staff was great standing behind what they sold to me. Great Experience after all.
Thanks for your business Mr. Dobbins! Sorry about the initial issues. I hope the Civic works out very well for your family!
Found this miata online at Sensible Autos and decided to take the hour drive from polk county.I"m so glad I did.These guys are so low pressure that you'll... enjoy checking out the available cars.They have carfax available on each vehicle,so you can check out car history.Kris and Wayne helped me with my purchase and I was totally satisfied.Before you stop by check the prices other dealers are charging for the same vehicle.You will find that other dealers are selling their cars for a lot more money,and their cars have many more miles.My miata is a 97 with only 78000 miles and drives perfect.Sensible autos is now my used vehicle dealer of choice.It was well worth the hour drive.Easiest car purchase I ever made.These guys make car buying fun!!!.
Thanks very much David! I hope that Roadster delivers great service and creates good memories. I love those cars!
