    I found a car I was looking for online that was here....The problem was I was over 400 miles away. I spoke to Don about the vehicle & it was still... available. A less than a week later I flew in went straight to Baldwin's. Even though Don was busy with another customer he made sure I was comfortable by giving me water & waiting inside where it was air conditioned. He finally had a chance to get the car I was interested in. The car looked great & Don let me take it for a test drive and the rest is history.... I drove back in a new used car.... My only gripe is, I had to walk to the bank in 90+ degree weather.... Lucky it was a couple blocks away.

    I just bought a car for my dad at Baldwin Auto Sales and the process was so quick and easy. There was absolutely no hassle, no long waiting and no up selling.... The owners are so professional and pleasant to work with. They were very patient and calm with my dad who can be very demanding. Thank you so much for your professionalism and making the process quick and easy.

    Don Baldwin led me through the process of buying my 2005 Trailblazer. He was helpful and straightforward without the usual coercion that you encounter... so often when buying a car. The car was in excellent condition, and I really enjoy driving it. I had one service issue early on, and Baldwin Auto Sales resolved it quickly and cheerfully. Don and John are great to do business with.

    The car I wanted to look at was better than advertised. Don was upset easy to deal with and the transaction was the smoother and faster than with any other... car I ever bought. If need a vehicle, go see what they have. You will not be disappointed!

    Bought a 2011 Dodge Journey from Don Baldwin in Escondido. The guy was super nice and patient. I never felt pressured to buy and simply showed up in jeans... and a tee shirt, he thought nothing of it and offered a test drive of the car. I told him I had my own financing and needed some help with getting everything together. He talked to my bank and helped me get all my paperwork in line. Was super patient and helpful. I was reading these other reviews AFTER THE FACT, and am really surprised. Maybe I didn't deal with the dad or brother, but these guys seem like a legit family trying to do the best they can. Went home with the car that day. He was super honest about the car, pointing out chips and scratches and rust, but never seemed to try and describe the car for more than it was. My 90 day warranty is still valid, and I am sure if something goes wrong they would gladly honor it... I hope. Lol. If I'm buying again, I will definitely look here first.

    Asked very simple, specific questions about a car they listed - response was a generic sales pitch.

    I showed up to the lot and it is separate from the office but they are a phone call away. The cars are nice and have good to mint appearance. Good selection... and pricing along with some real rare finds in great condition. The guys are up front and honest (I can handle that). The only real issue is that the cars are sitting out in the sun receiving sun damage (easily fixable). I wasn't approved for the loan but I am saving my money to buy one of their rare finds.

    I've dealt with many auto dealers in my life and I thought I had heard it all... but no, again I am amazed. I have never been asked to "work out numbers"... on a cash deal BEFORE a test drive. Does this tactic really work for them? Apparently because of the 5 star reviews here.

    They were very knowledgeable about the vehicle and shared what they knew. I was impressed with their willingness to be open about the car and theior policy... for complete inspection and repair of any problems before the put the car on the market. Just from my brief contact, i did not purchase the vehicle, i would recommend this dealer to my friends.
