Had a great experience buying a car from Vista car sales. I was a little skeptical with negotiating price before a test drive, but it ended up being a... good approach. Denise was a pleasure to work with, they were very flexible, and the cars on the lot were in great shape. We surprised our daughter with a car for her 16th birthday, and she absolutely loved it. I would highly recommend Vista to everyone.
Very pleasant and knowledgeable about inventory and comparisons. Wrote up estimates for two different vehicles I was interested in. The lot was very clean... and organized.
I purchased a vehicle at Vista Auto Sales about three weeks ago. This is a friendly place with a nice clean office and open area for reviewing cars. ... You don't have a bunch of cars being detailed and the office does not have a dark seedy feeling that I get in other places. And it is not so over the top that you feel like I think they spend a ton on overhead to make the perfect office viewing area. Chris was the sales person but he wasn't the typical used car sales person. There was not high pressure sales he didn't try to upsale you a lot of stuff that you probably don't need. Here is an interesting thing that happened while I was there and is indicative of his ethics. We were discussing the car (VW JETTA Sportwagen) with the doors open and the trunk open. A pair of big dudes drove up and hopped out of a truck and started going over the car. They jumped in the car started the engine, popped the hood looked at the engine, and looked around the car. All of this without saying a word to Chris (or I). They were customers looking at the car and thought Chris and I were the sales people. He told them I was a customer and that I was here first and that I would have priority in any sale. I thought to myself did this really happen. Sitting out here and another potential buyer shows up exactly at the moment I was there. I asked Chris "did you set that up." He started laughing and said no but it seemed like a good idea (fully kidding around). I thought wow he is not going to deal on this car at all but he did work with the budget that I had and got me into the car for a very fair price. It was a perfect market transaction. I felt like I got a deal as well as him. I didn't have the financing yet for the car. He set up a preliminary contract with all the details that he explained what they were and gave me time to get the financing and bring the money back to him. My bank was a little slow with the financing but he was patient and it worked out. He was very transparent, set his prices well, and let the quality of used cars that he has sell themselves. He knows all cars but I know that he is a Prius guru. He could rattle off a lot of information and trivia about Prius. I recommend anyone to check out Chris' stock of cars before you go anywhere else, he will treat you like a person and not another mark on a monthly tally.
Wanted an SUV they had for sale, had a concern about a potential problem later on down the road. Chris and Denise made sure it was taken care of before... purchase and disclosed all of this information up front! Used car dealers don't do that FYI. Great atmosphere and honesty is what I got from Vista auto, would recommend them to everyone and anyone. Thanks again Chris and Denise
Extremely helpful and kind. Had great deals on beautiful cars and my sister bought a car here a year ago and we just had to came back
A fantastic experience with Vista Auto Sales!! Lucky us to have found them!! The car was immaculate and in excellent condition, the price was fair, and... the owners, Chris and Denise treated us warmly like family, until we drove the car off the lot as happy new owners. We had another car to look at but canceled since we were so impressed with this dealer. Why look further!! A great car, transaction, and very positive experience. If we need another car, we’ll be back. We highly recommend.
I had been looking for a nice 2000-2006 regular cab-short bed Silverado pickup for a couple of months. They are very hard to find and when you do they... are usually very high miles. I found the truck I was looking for at Vista Auto Sales, a clean low mileage example. After looking the vehicle over, Denise (the owner) and I agreed to a price and the truck was mine. They fixed a couple of issues I noticed during my inspection before I picked the truck up, and off I went with my new baby. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. The whole shopping and purchasing experience was pleasant. I recommend Vista Auto Sales if you are in the market for a used car, even if you live in Orange County like I do, they are worth the drive down.
I’m very happy with Vista Auto Sales. My in laws bought me a beautiful & amazing 2011 Honda CRV EX. I’ve had it for 2-3 weeks now. It... runs absolutely as perfect as perfect can get. Chris & Denise are 100 % honest & friendly & 100 % real! The next time we’re in the market for another car- we will be going there!
I purchased a 2008 Toyota Prius here this weekend and I could not be more pleased with the service I received or the vehicle I got. It was not a purchase... I had planned for and Chris and Denise made everything so easy for me. Every car in the lot is pristine, the car I purchased is 10 years old and looks like no one's ever driven it! You can tell how much care Chris puts into choosing cars for his business. I decided I was going to purchase the car at 4pm on a Friday, right as the banks start closing up, but Chris still got in touch with Doug from Statefarm who they finance with, and we were able to sign the loan papers that night! When I went back the next morning to fill out the rest of the paperwork, Denise was very kind and good at explaining everything I was signing. Then she went out to the car with me and showed me how everything worked and helped me get the hang of how to turn the car on and off since it doesn't use a regular key. She even helped me look up how to get my phone hooked up to the Bluetooth! Overall, this was the best car buying experience I've ever had. From start to finish I felt welcome and understood. The car was so fairly priced and the financing so easy that even though this was a spur of the moment purchase, I never felt stressed or pressured to agree to something out of my budget. Thank you Chris and Denise for everything! I love my new car and I'll be recommending Vista Auto Sales to anyone I know looking for a new car!!!
My experience here at Vista Auto Sales was absolutely amazing !! Chris was very patient with me and worked with me, thank you again !!
