Off the chain

I'm looking for another vehicle at this moment if they have what on looking I we I'll be there the salesman name Swinton hooked me up


Bad management

Darren is about the money! Bottom line, do not drive to the bank to get your deposit to hold the car, because by the time you get back your car will be gone. The manager is rude, unconcerned about customers. His salesmen go the extra mile but they are not supported by their manager. Jamie was so much better with his professionalism and ethics. You never know who is who, you gotta be careful how you treat people. Money should never drive your business because without people there will be no business or money to be made!


Where is the title for my car

Sold me a 2015 Chevy Impala on Nov 30 without having title and now the 45 day tag is expired. Now it is my problem.

I really enjoyed my experience with university motors I have purchased at least six vehicles from them over the years. William Swinton has been a good salesman. I consider William as a friend and family. The owner Clint has always been willing to help and go the extra mile to help you. I like the no hassle approach it's buying made simple. Thanks again


Best experience ever!

I'm very please with the selection of cars they had. Jamie, my salesman pulled the two cars out for me (Mercedes and Infiniti) to test drive. I visited the car lot twice and each time it rained, Jamie pulled the cars up to the front so that I would not get wet. While I had my Infiniti reserved, Jamie called me weekly to check status and to see when I'd be taking the car home. I was finally able to take the car home last week. The process was easy and the terms were fair but most importantly the car is in awesome condition. This is the place to purchase your next vehicle!
