Best place to buy your next car.

I bought my car in one day from a great salesman named Richard. He was professional, kind, and he came to pick me up at my home in the rain that took him almost an hour! Who does that?! Richard, that's who. On the way to Gulf Coast Brokers, we both realized there was something wrong with the rear tires. He told me whatever the car needed they would take care of it. Well, today they gave me 4 brand new Firestone tires. My 2014 Toyota Rav4 rides like a 2022! The Manager Marcin was also kind and professional. He replaced the air filter that's in the glove compartment, no charge to me. I can't say more about these people who know how to treat customers. Whatever you buy will be priced fairly. If you need a car, go to Gulf Coast Brokers, you'll be happy you did.

Get vehicle inspected before you buy it

Bought a 2016 Land Rover from this dealer. Within weeks of ownership, I have ongoing issues to include a improperly installed eco start motor, coolant leak in upper hoses, fuel pump and fuel pressure issues and multiple engine shut downs while driving. The vehicles error code history shows this was not an isolated incident. First used vehicle I’ve bought in 25 yrs. Before purchasing, take to get inspected first! Updated - I appreciate you response below but I actually did reach out to my salesperson and while he was polite with his response, he was also very dismissive of the issues. After multiple trips to the dealership, it has become evident that this vehicle has a history of the issues I've been experiencing. When you had the vehicle, I'm 100% certain you experienced the vehicle shutting down in ECO mode so that is why you replaced the secondary ECO battery. The problem is that was not the issue. The error codes point to a low fuel error related to the fuel pump and faulty module. There was also a leak in the upper coolant hoses which in order to replace, requires the removal of the entire engine manifold. The leak was not new and had been there for some time because of the amount of residue. Lastly, the front control arm bushings were worn and needed to be replaced. I am not a mechanic so when I purchased the vehicle, I would expect that a reasonable inspection of the vehicle would have uncovered at least some of these items. In fact, Basil told me that you have very good service technician and that the vehicle was in great condition. If you feel the need to discuss further, my number is in the sales folder.

My Husband and I have know Marcin and his crew for many...

My Husband and I have know Marcin and his crew for many years, we have bought several cars and trucks from Gulf Coast and have never been disappointed. My grown children have purchased vehicles from Gulf Coast and when one of them had not so great credit, they worked with them until they could find the perfect financing. I would always recommend this car dealer as they think out of the box and are honest. I know they are honest because my husband would have not gone back so many times for vehicles. We do not keep our trucks for more than a few years and that is always the first place he looks. All the salesmen are nice and upfront, we worked with Basil this past time and the teamwork is always so stress free, no hard sales here. Try them is all I can say. Doreen and Mike West

Great Car Buying Experience

Last week I purchased a BMW i3. The salesperson (Harold) was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I live in St. Petersburg so much of our dealings was via phone and text. We agreed upon a price; I drove to Sarasota and was there approximately 20 minutes signing the paperwork and was on my way back to St. Petersburg. I got a great car at a fair price. They are very professional and highly recommend them.

Shady Business Practices

Shady Business Practices. I was purchasing a 2015 Cadillac Escalade from out of state and went through all of the financing etc. My credit was pulled 2x once by the dealership and once by the financing company. I was told by the finance manager I have great credit and the vehicle was locked in and mine. I told him I was even willing to put 5-10K down over the phone but was told they do not do that. They said they would put the financing paperwork in the mail that day (Wednesday) and the vehicle was not going anywhere. The next day (Thursday) I did not receive the paperwork in the mail, So Friday at 9am I called my sales rep to ask what was going on. He informed me that the vehicle had been sold to someone else Thursday evening. I asked him how could this be when I was told the vehicle was being held, my credit was pulled and the paperwork was in the mail. I was told it was his managers decision. I asked for the manager to give me a call. Upon receiving this call the first words out of the manager mouth were "You should be glad you did not purchase that vehicle, let me explain" Then goes on to tell me that it had Transmission issues and shudders when shifting between gears. Then tells me that there were metal shavings in the transmission fluid. So either they sold this car out from under me to someone else and their were not any issues and he is trying to cover his @$$ or he was going to sell me/ sold someone else a vehicle with transmission issues. Either way shady business practices. I do not recommend working with this dealership as you cannot trust them!
