    I have been looking to purchase a car for the last year and have been to Preferred Imports numerous times looking for the right vehicle. They are ALL... very nice people to meet initially and to deal with, after I made a decision to purchase. I would recommend doing business with them to anyone that is looking for a quality vehicle at a fair price, I will definitely go back for my next purchase.
