    So happy I stopped by the dealership. I was so stressed out, hunting for a new car and even with terrible credit they helped me find a car. All the cars... at the lot are nice and clean and priced well. I am so thankful to have something reliable for my son and not to mention how pretty it is! Thank you guys so much!

    They refused to help me! They have nice cars with great prices but how do you plan to sell them if you hand keys to customers and say "GO LOOK" while... you sit on your phone!!???!! Terrible customer service offered me no help!!!!! I cant include names because no one ever came out to help.

    Thanks for taking the time to write us about your displeasure with my company. I will say that our standard procedure is to hand keys to people to ...let them look without someone following them around like a puppy dog. We find most people love this freedom when looking at our inventory and with the prices clearly marked it makes it even easier for the consumer to see what they may want the keys to without the hassle. That said, that you feel you were ignored is not good customer service and needs to be addressed with staff immediately. I would ask if you were to ever consider shopping for a vehicle with us again that you reach out to me personally to see you have a different experience. Lastly, thank you for the nice comments about the vehicles we inventory and the price point at which we display that inventory. Regards, Eric Vernon, Owner

    I went looking for safe and reliable car for my 16 year old daughter. There are a nice section of car to pick from and all very clean inside and out. ... They treated me like I was one of the family and made it easy to decide on a car. I will definitely deal with them again.

    I would definitely recommend this dealership for anyone that whats to buy a used car! Jim McKee was very professional and made the experience a great one... for my son. They were upfront and honest about everything and were willing to do what they could to make sure my son got the vehicle he loved! So if you want a dealership that doesn't play games with you and have hearts of gold, THIS IS THE ONE!

    Jim and Dave are Great!! The cars are all in excellent condition I saw the one I wanted to checkout on cars.com and so we went, we test drove, we looked... under the hood and everything. The entire process was simple and these guys were wonderful and friendly. I have told everyone who asks about my new car where I bought it and when my youngest son needs a vehicle Economy Auto in Bridgeport will be the first place we go. Thank you guys we will be back!!!!!!
