This was one of the best car buying experiences ever. I'm 63 and a former car mechanic. I've bought over 200 used cars in my lifetime for myself, family,... and friends. I've always preferred buying used from private owners. I've had too many unfortunate experiences with small used car dealers. However, this small dealer, Blue Ocean Auto Sales, is a total gift to the car industry. Freddy, the owner, sets a great example for all small auto dealers. Freddy is authentic, honest, and passionate to serve his customers. He went so far out of the way to serve and exceed our expectations, that I was stunned. Being very cautious at first while on the first phone call to inquire about a 2006 Lexus SC430, I found Freddy to be incredibly humble, courteous, and very honest. Funny, too. After three phone calls to confirm the talk was aligned with his walk, we decided to go visit the dealership. Driving up, I was dismayed by how small the dealership was and the condition of their building. After meeting Freddy and his finance manager, I realized that I was much too judgmental. This is a place where you can NOT judge the "book by it's cover"! It's like buying a car on a lot in Mayberry. Nothing about the their place will really impress you, except Freddy and Mark, the finance manager. They are just so unpretentious, authentic, and caring. They place ALL their focus on helping you get what you want. My wife and I have been married for 35 years and we bought this Lexus for her birthday. Freddy went all out to please her. He had the front leather seat completely refinished, detailed the car, and even installed new windshield wipers for her. I've waited for six weeks to write this review just to make sure nothing went wrong with the Lexus. This car has far surpassed our expectations! Freddy even had his Dad go to the DMV to get us a special 911 Patriotic License plate we had requested. I could not recommend this dealership more to anyone. Don't let the outside characteristics dismay you. Freddy and his business restored faith in us that good guys are still out there! Blessings to him and his team!
They were all really nice and helpful process was quick and thorough. We had no problems they clearly care about there customers . Would definitely recommend... to a friend
The owners of Blue Ocean Auto Sales are awesome. They took care of every detail without hesitation. They were honest, hard working, and helped make... sure all my questions were answered, and, they had THE BEST pricing around. I had been to other places that day and looked at other cars, but Blue Ocean Auto was by far the best car buying experience I have ever had. I had driven a long way that day, looked at a few other cars, and had a long drive home, so they filled the tank up with gas to get me home. I left there as a very satisfied customer.
I bought a car used by Blue Ocean Auto Sales and Freddy (the owner) immediately proved to be a serious and reliable person. Everything he told me about... the car was true. Recommended
Freddy and Jay did an excellent job preparing the Villager for sale. They allowed us to take the car to another auto dealer to have it checked over. ... All came back as they had shown us. Very accommodating and friendly. Highly recommend this auto sales dealership. We have been using the Villager for over 8 months now with absolutely no problems!
Whatever you do, talk to Freddy. He was very professional and followed throughout with calling me the day of the test drive. He actually assisted when... I was checking out the car's lights. He was even willing to negotiate and offered a fair price.
My experience with Freddy and his team was nothing less than 5 stars. I had been searching for a specific car (BMW 645ci / 650i) for a month and stumbled... upon the perfect one at Blue Ocean. I test drove the car and they allowed me to get it inspected by my own personal mechanic, who signed off on the vehicle. He stated it was the best 6-series he had seen of my year/model and he has worked on Bentleys, Rolls Royces, Ferraris, and everything else. He's seen it all. Freddy and his team were very responsive in communicating, they were very professional, and just plain out cool guys. The buying process was very simple, and I had my plates in less than a week. This review come two months after my purchase and I'm still in love with my car. I highly recommend checking out their inventory, as they are straight shooters, and carry high quality inventory. In my next car purchase, I will be looking to them first. You can have anyone contact me regarding my experience with you. Thank you guys!
After looking online for a while I came across this vehicle at Blue Ocean Auto Sales on Nebraska Ave in Tampa, it was a one owner clean CARFAX and Florida... car and priced fairly. I visited the dealership and I was welcomed by nice staff, the car was in outstanding conditions, Freddy was very helpful and patient with me, he even showed me paperwork of what they had done to the car at their shop when they serviced it before selling it on their lot. They definitely exceeded my expectations and the car drove like a dream, they weren't pushy at all like you'd expect from a typical car dealership. The paperwork process was fast and easy, no hidden fees. I'm extremely happy with my new car and will definitely be back for my next car purchase. Thanks again guys for making it so easy, will refer all my friends for sure.
