    I called this guy a few days ago in interest of his 2006 Ford F-150 he brought it to my attention that they don't offer financing and told us that... we could go through Campus USA or Florida Credit Union that's the only two options that they have as far as lenders and giving us a loan I called both places without success and the only option that I have he's asking $7,000 for the truck so my wife and I talked it over and figured hey let's go ahead and give him five thousand down which is two thirds of the price and we will post dated checks for the remainder of the balance everybody in this world knows that if you're non-compliant of that it will be a felony so I called him back this morning and I told him yes my name is Tim I'm the guy that you spoke with about the Ford F-150 a couple days ago he said oh yeah yeah yeah I said listen my wife and I would like to make you an offer he says no no no I'm not accepting any offers I said okay why not? If you look online you'll see the online price is firm that's what we want for the truck this truck has been a hassle blah blah blah I then told him that we're going to pay you the money for the vehicle and I told him I said I'm not trying to offer you anything less than the vehicle my wife and I are trying to pay you 2/3 down that's $5,000 out of 7 that you're . Are you willing to work with us? he said no no no no no you can go f*** yourself I said excuse me? He hung up so I called them back I said listen I don't know what your problem is but I don't want to purchase a vehicle from you and I told him that you do not talk to customers this way. I told him I haven't done anything to you I don't know you. All I'm trying to do is purchase a truck through you and you tell me to go f*** myself he then proceeded to tell me that I'm not a buyer I'm a b********** that doesn't even make any sense. I would not purchase a vehicle from this dealership Sunshine Auto Motors in Ocala Florida for nothing because it's so unfair to be treated like this and I don't even know this dude and I haven't even done anything wrong to this guy any dealership should not have a problem with me putting $5,000 down out of seven that they are asking for a vehicle do not purchase a vehicle from this dealership very disrespectful

    My fiance and I bought a used Lexus SUV from Nicholas in March 2017. We had stopped at the dealership months before and almost bought something then, so... when we were truly ready we had no hesitation going back to this dealership. We found all the vehicles to be clean cars as well as reasonably priced. We were also given a fair amount on the car that we traded for our newer vehicle. We would definitely recommend this dealership to anyone looking for a good, clean, well priced used car!

    My old car blew a head gasket and I had a limited amount of money to spend for Deposit. Nicolas was very helpful and straight with his responses. He... only has a few cars at a time on his lot, he seems very selective of the cars he buys for resale. He does not finance cars here, but Nicolas was able to wiggle numbers on one of the cars I liked, and managed to get the numbers just right for my Credit Union to approve and fit my deposit money. He stayed late on a weekend, and even offered rides to and from his dealership to facilitate the sale, since I had no vehicle. After the sale, he helped me beyond his role in selling my broken car. He didn't have to do that! My old car was NOT his problem. Anyone who says this guy is not nice or was rude, either walked up with an attitude, so they got it back, or they are a troll from another car lot. To be fair...in the off-chance Nicolas WAS actually rude to someone, believe me, that was an exception...not a rule with this guy.

    I originally saw the vehicle on Cars.com. I called to see if it was still available. Nicolas was able to answer my questions on the phone and when I... arrived the car was clean and everything was as promised. Great easy buying experience.

    I had a very good experience at Sunshine Motors. I originally saw a truck online that I thought would pull my boat. After meeting with Nick and looking... at the truck we realized I needed something bigger. Nick didn't have a truck I needed but he found one for me! When he got it in it was everything he described and it is a perfect truck for my needs. Thank you Nick and Sunshine Motors.

    I am a recently single mom that was worried about buying a car on my own. Nick made my stress go away. He was very polite and understanding. I didn't... know exactly what I wanted but he helped me find the perfect car for my family and myself. Great place!

    Nicholas was very helpful. He answered my email immediately. When I arrived at the dealership he had the keys and history of the vechicle ready. After... the test drive my paper work was done very quickly. He even had my permanent plate the next day. 2 weeks later I'm very happy with the car. I would do business with Sunshine Auto again.

    The sales guy is arrogant and combative. Vehicles have a lot of rust, dirt and cobwebs on them. He could not provide any vehicle history, except to say... how great the vehicles are.

    I am sorry you feel this way, I only have service records on vehicles that came with them, please understand that I was not the previous owner of any ...of the vehicles I have for sale, some of them have service records and some of them not. None of my vehicles have rust, I don't sell any vehicle that has rust, I avoid buying northern cars, you may have seen a bit of corrosion on the frame and that is normal on vehicles that are 10 or 12 years old, but I do not sell vehicles with rust. I will be glad to provide you with a free Carfax report on any of my vehicles and you'll see that none came from up north or the beach. Again, I'm sorry you felt offended and please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you change your opinion about us. Sincerely, Nicolas Brontis

    The owner literally refused to answer any of my questions in regards to a car I was interested in. This was his/her response to me, "I guess you won't... be buying this Jeep from me, but it's ok with me! I don't answer stupid questions." I don't do business with personnel unwilling to treat those with respect.

    The only question I didn't answer was the one where the customer wanted to know how long the vehicle was on the lot, I apologize for not answering in ...a more professional way, I just didn't think the content of the question was irrelevant, however, I should have been more respectful about the way I answered her. Sincerely, Nicolas Brontis

    I did not make a deal with this dealership, but I did reach out to him for information about a car I was interested in. He seemed to be a Very straight... shooter and I really appreciated the time he spent with me. It seems like he's a straightforward guy. I would not hesitate to contact him about a car at his car lot again.
