    Recently purchased a 2005 Subaru Forrester for my son from Jim G., Owner. Jim specializes in pre-owned Subaru vehicles and I enjoyed the experience. His "No Frills" business model keeps his expenses down which enables him to pass along significant savings to the end consumer. I enjoyed meeting Jim, he is easy to reach, takes all calls, and certainly seems trustworthy. Let's face it, there is going to be some down-side risk assoicated with buying any car that is 9 years old. I took the vehicle to Gerald's Tires for a quick/general analysis prior to closing the purchase. Gerald's pointed out that the rear brake pads would soon need to be replaced. Jim never hesitated and had the brake pads installed at his expense. It's early, but the next time I am in need of a vehicle, I'll definately give him a shot at the sale. Check out his website and compare his "no haggle" pricing to Kelly Blue Book values. If you pay attention and shop his site regularly, you will like the way he prices his inventory "to move".

    After having an extremely frustrating experience with my previous dealer's maintenance department I was ready to get a new car. The car I purchased was below blue book value and I was given the blue book value of my car for a trade in. Charleston Auto Sales has a low overhead (no funding race cars, new showrooms, etc.). This provides the buyer a good deal on a solid car.

    Completely satisfied, in every respect. Jim Gerow is honest, friendly, exerts no pressure or phony "salesmanship," but let's the quality of his cars do the selling. He simply offers them for the best price he can, you can accept it or not--NO HAGGLING! Also, it took us no time at all to agree on a fair price for my trade in. I bought a 2012 Subaru Outback on 6/6/14 and am enjoying it, fully. This was the best car-shopping/buying experience of my life--by a mile, and I enthusiastically recommend Charleston Auto Sales to anyone! You can't do better!

    A great deal on an excellent car. The buying experience was significantly better than dealerships. Jim was not pushy at all and the atmosphere was laid back and comfortable. The offer on my trade-in was also much better than I was quoted at several local dealerships. I've had the car for two months now and it has had no problems whatsoever.

    I purchased a 2000 Subaru legacy outback from Jim a few months ago. I'm an Atlanta native, but I go to school in Charlottesville, so I had to drive the car all the way back from Charleston! Jim runs a great business, and he was incredibly honest throughout the whole process. I've been driving my subaru for several months and have had nothing but routine maintainence to take care of. I love my subaru, and I highly highly recommend anyone interested in buying a used Subaru to check out Jim's shop. His prices are nearly unbeatable since he's the single owner and operator of a warehouse, with only one assistance. This makes for incredibly cheap prices since you're avoiding dealership costs. I could speak volumes of how strongly I feel about the quality of Jim's business and the Subaru's he gets back on the road, but I'll leave it at that!

    After emailing back and forth about a particular car, I called Jim in the morning before I left from Savannah to check it out. I arrived at the dealership in Charleston and he informed me that he had somehow 'forgot' to mention the check engine light was on in the car. After looking up the error codes which were causing the problem I found out the repair would be a rather expensive one, to which when confronted about it he said 'I don't know, my mechanic handles that'. Just another used car salesman.

    I drove from Columbia to find Charleston Auto sales. I would highly recommend Jim!! Just purchased a 2006 Tribeca and LOVE it!! It is in great condition for its age. I just got it checked out at Firestone, and all it needed was air and cabin filters. The buying process is low pressure which I appreciated. I was able to get a great car at a great price. Thanks!

    Would highly recommend purchasing any vehicle from Jim. He patiently waited for me to choose the perfect Subaru. (two years) He was never pushy, always gave sound advice, very knowledgeable, and totally upfront and honest. I considered and test drove at least 10 vehicles before purchasing my Subaru Outback. Love, Love Love my new ride! Thanks Jim

    Jim did a great job at selling me the car. He didnt really harrass me like other dealerships tend to do and let me work on things at my own pace in accordance with my work hours. when we found a problem with the car i was looking at, he had it fixed that day and then the car drove great afterwards with no extra charge. He was very polite and friendly when working with him and his assistant was the same. Overall it was a great experience and now i have a car to be proud of. Thank you for your help Jim.
