I drove 4.5 hours to buy the car I'd been looking for. The dealer, Elliot, had minor maintenance and repairs done and had the vehicle inspected before... my arrival. The negotiation process was painless. Unfortunately, on the trip home, I started experiencing an issue with the vehicle. I had a local shop check it out, and while it may have been covered by the extended warranty, Elliot went out and offered to help me out and buy back the vehicle. He didn't have to do it, but he did. He helped me with the cost of a rental car and more to help cover the expense of getting the vehicle back to him. I would love to do business again with him if the right vehicle comes along. Buyers that are closer should definitely consider his vehicles if he's got something they're interested in. Very up front and honest, and he definitely knows how to follow through with customer service. I thought I was going to be left high and dry with a broken vehicle, 200+ miles away from where I purchased it, but he did the honorable thing and helped me out the only way possible. Even though I didn't end up leaving with the vehicle I was interested in, I'm happy to know there's at least one dealer out there who take pride in their reputation and ethics.
I would like to thank Elliot for making my daughter's car buying experience not only successful but relatively simple. She couldn't be happier with her... purchase! I would recommend this dealership to anyone!
Called Elliot on a Monday after submitting a credit app online, could not make it out till Friday to looks at cars. Explained the situation to him. Looked... at a Toyota Rav4 by Thursday I was driving with a low int Rate (unheard of with my credit) The SUV is awesome rides, runs, drives and looks amazing. If he does not have what you are looking for give him a chance he will find it for you. one word BUY!!! from this man.
Through out the years I've owned many used cars, of which I've purchased from numerous used car lots in the area and most times they all try to con you... or feed you some line or give you excuses as to why they can or can't take take car of some problem, but in truth, they just want to push the car down the road and make a quick profit! I know this to be true because before i retired I was a certified auto tech for over forty years in the Mohawk valley, and I know cars very well, and it's not easy to pull too much over on me! A few weeks ago, I purchased a 2000 Toyota Camry from Calianese Auto Sales, and I have to say that it was the most honest and decent place that I've ever dealt with. Elliot not only repaired the few minor problems that I pointed out to him...but he went above and beyond to fix several several other things that I never mentioned, and i have to commend his integrity. He spent extra money, which he didn't have to, only to satisfy a me and make sure that a quality used car left his lot, and that is something you seldom see nowadays, and I really do appreciate the extra compassion that he gave for me, and the Camry runs and rides like a brand new car. I would highly recommend that anyone purchase a used car from Calianese Auto Sales, because that is truly a name you can trust!
