Great experience with Simo. I bought a used Kia Forte from him and the process was easy and very satisfying. My family and I will definitely seek him... out for future purchases.
Purchased a vehicle from Simo, Buying experience was very smooth. The car was very clean and in excellent condition. Simo was exceptional at making sure... the buying process was hassle free. Delivered on everything he promised. I would definitely recommend him for your car purchases.
What an amazing buying experience. We decided to look at the Mercedes Benz E350 Wagon that Simo had for sale, the most versatile and unique vehicle on... the road today. The wagon was immaculate in and out. His shop was operating room clean. His dogs were super friendly. After about 3 minutes of discussion, we purchased the wagon. Simo suggested we go into town for a quick bite to eat while he wrote up the paperwork. A half an hour later we were on the road home. Hands down my best car buying experience ever.
I called on a used Cadillac CT6 with water damage (the car was repair inhouse by them) . After accepting to pay full asking price in cash, I asked for... some sort of warranty. He proceeded to get mad and say it was too costly for them, even though I am in the same state. I told him I would help with the transportation if need be but he still said that didnt change his mind (in a harsh tone). I would never recommend buying anything from this place. Hospitality is not a part of their services.
After reading all details in ads, web site and emailing I made plans to travel from Chicago to SV Automotive in Ontario, CA. Flights, car rental, hotel,... work schedule, etc... Only by searching the vin, do I find the vehicle was totaled due to flood. SV never disclosed this.
The customer never called us to inquire about the car. We disclose any and all title issues, always.
Our Equinox was totalled when it was hit while parked. My wife wanted a used Volvo and we found one at SV Automotive. We met Simo, who showed us the car.... It was immaculate, in great shape. We test drove it, and the ABS sensor came on. Simo said he would fix it and he did. We had to deal with the insurance company, the credit union approving our loan and getting the check cut and everything seemed to take forever. However, Simo was on it, keeping in touch, updating us on the progress of the loan and doing exactly what he said we would do. When we finally came to pick up the car, the battery was dead. Simo jumped it and said that if it didn't start he would get us a new battery. A few days later the car didn't start. We called Simo, who said he would order a battery and get it in the next day. Sure enough, the next day he let us know the battery was in. I went to pick it up, and it was a bigger and better battery then what originally came in the car. He even offered to install it, although I did that myself. Simo and SV Automotive is the rare example of trustworthiness, integrity, and solid customer service. If you want a Mercedes, Volvo or Porsche, he is the man to see first. Thanks Simo!
Simo's cars are in pristine condition and with his knowledge and expertise, there is no question about the quality of his inventory. We are so grateful... to him and we love the car we purchased from him. He is honest, trustworthy and a man of integrity.
Mary, thank you for your kind words - I appreciate it very much!
I had been looking for a quality pick up truck for sometime. I just happen to see a used F150 Harley Davidson by mistake online. On the websites I was... searching didn't have what I was looking for. Believe me when I say things happen for a reason. I sent an email to the seller, and received a quick response back. I made an appointment to see and test drive the vehicle the very next day. The vehicle appeared amazing on the website and I was praying that it looked the same in person. I'll be the first to admit that I was shocked how beautiful the truck appeared. Now, I was wondering about the interior and engine of the truck. I met Simo and he had to be one of the most pleasant and knowledgeable persons I've ever met. He knew his stuff, and I immediately felt at ease. He never pressured me or made me feel like I had to buy the vehicle. Simo answered all my questions and then some. The vehicle drove like a champ with 135,000 miles. I just hope I can put 135,000 miles on my new puppy. Needless to say, I purchased the vehicle and look forward to many happy years with my new toy..Simo you were 1st class, and you made the buying process seamless. A+. I will recommend others to you. Thanks for being a true professional. Salaam..
Thank you for your kind words and your business. We hope to see you in the future!
I went there to see a CRV for my wife. The car was in perfect condition in and out. It was a great pleasure meeting Simo and his passion for cars. We did... not buy the car because my wife decided to buy a different model, but I would have bought it with no doubts. I will keep looking at his stock to maybe buy my own car. This is how every car dealer should be. Transparent, honest and trustworthy. Thanks for you time, Steven.
We hope you come back! Thank you for your visit!
We purchased a used BMW which Simo and his crew had restored. Great buying experience and customer service. Simo had no problem with my request to have... the car checked over by my own mechanic and even drove it over to the shop where I met up with him. My mechanic (who knows his stuff) gave the car a clean bill of health and more - he said that the guys at SV Automotive are real craftsmen. My wife & I couldn't be happier.
We are always happy to work with our customers, to ensure their full confidence and satisfaction.
