Although I didn't end up purchasing a vehicle from STA, I'm happy to have discovered them. Jonathan took care of me right away, and allowed me to fully test the Cayenne GTS that drew me to the dealer.
Things to note -
This 3rd party dealer specializes in Porsche sales and repairs, that means they have a great inventory of older to newer Porsche's for sale and a full mechanic shop on site.
So why not 5 stars overall?
Well, unfortunately the GTS they had wasn't in the best shape and clearly needed some TLC before being shown for sale (car parts in the trunk, battery dead, ash tray stuck open). Now this could have been due to bad timing on my part but still - if you are going to specialize in Porsche sales and charge at the higher end of the cars value then the cars on the lot need to exude the German values the brand is known for. That being said I have my eyes on future offerings from this dealer and hope something wows me into a sale next time.
Major Motor Cars is a great place to purchase a vehicle. I emailed them regarding a Mercedes they listed for sale. By the time I came in the vehicle I came into was being sold. I was upset at first but was greeted by the owner, Peter, actually the owner's son.
He took me into his office and charmed us. He didn't treat us like a typical salesperson. He promised to find me a similar vehicle to which I thought would be an empty promise. Sure enough he called me two days later to come in a drive the vehicle he had just purchased for me, with no deposit and no strings attached! I felt super comfortable coming down. The vehicle was as described in pristine condition. I was super happy about my decision to do business with Major Motor Cars and would happily refer my friends and family. Peter and his employees are heartfelt, easy going, and friendly to deal with.
I worked with Jan from Carvana- she was able to explain to me the process, make sure I was comfortable with where it was at, was able to be reached and kept communication open. The pick up process went smoothly and I was able to sell my car without any glitches.
Peter took great care of me and got me in a range Rover that I could have only dreamed of. He managed the financing despite of my credit, insurance referral despite my record, and got in the car I wanted in less than 24 hours. I went in to test my options and walked away the next day happier than imagined. Thank you thank you thank you. Honestly these guys make owning a dream car reasonable and affordable.
The Hornburg Dealership in Santa Monica deserves 10+ in overall satisfaction! Knowledge and Professionalism is what i personally admire the most, their easy going and well experienced sales associates can assist you in all areas regarding the car you are to purchase or lease as they recognize the needs of the buyer.
Thank you guys!
I'm writing this review specifically for RAY!
Not only has Ray helped me pick out the best car, gave me the best deal possible on the car (i know so because I compared the prices of the SAME CAR from 3 different BMW dealerships) and patiently answered all my million questions (since its my first car), BUT he also want out of his way and responsibilities to help me be approved by the bank that did not want to initially give me a lease because of my financial situation.
So, if you need a new BMW, go to THIS dealership and ask for RAY specifically. Your experience does not depend on the dealership- it depends on the DEALERS.
So, if you want to get a car of your dreams, Ray will do everything for you to be able to afford it!
I wish that this is not only read by the customers, but also by the BMW Beverly Hills management because this guy needs a raise!
I felt great to get my first BMW in Beverly Hill dealer. The purchase process was easy and fast. However, the agent didn't pay their passion on their sell, the only thing they care is asking you to purchase a car.
I had a great experience while purchasing a used car for my elderly parents. My great experience started when I first called the dealer to inquire about their inventory. I spoke to a gentleman named Ashot, gave him my budget, told him the car is for my elderly parents and that was all. He gave me few options, the car was detailed, went and looked at it, dropped few hundreds from the price and we were out with the car. Never once I felt pressured or uncomfortable during the process. I will definitely return as a customer and or refer my friends and families.

very testingly good. it found it interesting how they did what they did. very personable, good knowledge and over all really wonderful to deal with. Wish there were more care parts for me to choose from so I could customize my ride and get personalized service. for future reference I would love some bucket seats to be there
I've never experienced service like this from a car dealership. I'm still in shock and I bought the car 3 days ago! Alex, was truly committed to making sure I walked out with a great car that wouldn't break the bank. I never financed a car before in my life, so I didn't have good credit to finance. Alex, called around and worked out a deal, 4 hours later I financed my first car and drove home a fully loaded 2016 Ford Explorer. Walking into a dealership being a female is very intimidating, but I didn't feel that way at Platinum Autohaus. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone and everyone. Thank you Alex!!
a reminder, when you tell me that it will not take but another 25 minutes for an update, that is fine, but when you come back to me 2-3 times, that is not fine, that should have been on another service day.
I have been in the market for a 2017 Nissan GT-R for a few months, both new and/or used. I visited local Nissan dealerships with some slightly used GT-Rs that should be mint, but they were all beat up (curb rash, scuff marks, scratches, front lip damage, etc). I shopped around online for new ones within 500 miles and none of the Nissan dealers would work with me on pricing. They would not budge at all!
I finally decided to check out an independent dealer and found CJ Auto Group. The dealership was small, but the quality of the cars they have on their lot are all clean, high end vehicles. This is where I found a very clean pearl white 2017 GT-R with only 5200 miles! David and Solo were both easy to work with. Best of all, they were willing to work with me on pricing on what I thought was a fair deal.
If you're in the market slightly used but high end cars, do yourself a favor and check out CJ Auto Group!!
I recently bought a 991.1 S Cabriolet from Sports Trend and could not be more satisfied with the experience. Randy was great to work with and handled everything in a professional and efficient manner. He was very upfront in describing the vehicle and negotiating price, and treated me fairly on both counts. This was an online transaction with the vehicle shipping sight unseen to RI, so I very much appreciated the high level of integrity I found in Randy, the good communication at every step in the process, and how everything went fine with no surprises or anything unexpected at any point. Thanks to Ash as well for taking care of the paperwork and getting everything out quickly. Would highly recommend and would definitely shop here again.
