A decent place to do business
by George E from High Country, NC
November 6, 2018
5 5 5 5 5 4.4 (125 reviews)
I have bought and sold vehicles from Cosmo Motors. Having said that, if there is a pickier buyer out there, I'd love to make your acquaintance. I have dealt with Matt and Cosmo with deals in the Aston Martin, and Porsche range of cars. Anytime their business said they'd check, or perform a repair, it was done, period. Being no neophyte when it comes to car collecting I can assure the reader that if a business did not do what they'd say they'd do, I've no hesitancy or qualms about putting that comment into writing so others can gain information, so hard earned money is not wasted; this is how we learn where to shop, or more importantly, where not to. An educated buyer becomes proficient and therefore happy with the purchase. If you can't tell a water pump from an injector, take the car you're interested in for a Pre- Purchase Inspection or either put it up on the rack and have a trained mechanic to look it over. Isn't that worth a few bucks for peace of mind? If you feel adequately informed about a car, and know its issues, then look it over yourself. I simply cannot envisage Cosmo motors not wanting you to do this, if you're a serious buyer, of course unless all lifts are being used. It is a used car, for goodness sale! Don't think for one moment that some SELLER's don't try and pull the wool over a Dealer's eyes, because they will! The dealer will do all that is possible to sell a decent car, are they incentivized not to? OK, I'll climb off my soap box now, but I will say that Cosmo motors have always treated me right. If you don't see the exact car or truck that you want, then ask about them finding one for you. And no, I don't work for the dealership, nor am I related to anyone there. I do enjoy going down there and checking their inventory out periodically as I'm only an hour away, their vehicles are sometimes seldom seen, interesting high line cars inside and out the showroom. And that ladies and gentlemen, concludes my point of view.

I bought this car new back in 1997 and had to wait nine months to get it. What a fun car to drive. It was a beautiful dark green with a khaki interior. It had very few bells and whistles which made it a joy to drive. The manual top was easy to throw back and raise up. The car handled like a dream and the manual transmission was superb. BMW really had something with this car. It was an ultimate driving machine, especially compared to the cars BMW is making and selling now. I would buy this car all over again if it was still offered; however, they are hard to find these days, especially one in good condition. The exterior design was spot on, especially compared to the slab sided Z4 that replaced it.

Best buying experience ever
by John dixion from Palm beach fl
November 6, 2018

Looked for months for the right 911 turbo. I came across Cosmo Motors on multiple websites and recognized the name from seeing them on a car in NASCAR. I checked out their inventory and couldn't believe the verity of hard to find cars they had. Including my dream 911 turbo. I contacted the dealership and got a quick response. Matt was on top of the process from the first min to the end. He sent me additional photos, video of the car, helped me with transportation to my beach house... everything. It was incredible. They have amazing pricing. I tried to negotiate but quickly realized that they aren't "that place" but their price on the car was already fair as it could have gotten. The financing was quickly arranged by Chance the finance/ general manager. He beat my credit unions rates and terms. Saved me a bunch of money. The car was shipped to my doorstep. When it arrived I still was a little nervous.. first time I've ever bought a $70k car without looking at it first. I'm not going to lie, I felt a little sceptical because everything was "too perfect". The car showed up, and not only was it as nice as they described it to be, it was even nicer! I couldn't believe how perfect this car was. It smelled brand new! There wasn't a chip or scratch, no paint work, no curb rash... nothing.. I drove the car over the weekend and took it to the dealer on Monday to get checked out "just in case" they said it was the cleanest 2008 turbo they have seen in a long time. I still felt like I was missing something. Things were way to easy, smooth and it was too good to be true. Well they weren't. It's been roughly a year, the car is still perfect, they sent me cookies after the sale, they sent me a Christmas card. The service is just unreal! I will never ever buy a car, any car anywhere but there. A+ guys. I couldn't be happier. -John

My Z is 20 years old. It has 94000 miles, so it’s been used lightly. It has none of the typical problems with the cooling system or differential mounts. It’s built like a tank, but it gets 25 mpg (2.8L 6) and it’s pretty fast for a ‘97. It’s sports car with super cold AC, power windows, seats and locks. (I wish it had a power top though.) Four years ago, I paid $8500 for it and put $4000 into it for “renovations”. Now it looks like new, drives like new, and is more comfortable that a brand new Miata. Parts and labor are no more expensive for this car than any other. But, it’s for sale because I can’t think of anything more to do to it. I need a new project.

My experiance witth arrohead has hoestly changed my opinion about car dealerships. Tim Lacy is the GM, and he handled our purchase From a to z . We've never encountered a salesman who actually cared . He even went as far as suggesting that we go home and think about it overnight. .we felt so comfortable working w Tim.with his straight forward deemeanor . He did not just tell us what we wanted to hear. . We liked the fact that they are a ???one price??? dealership. And we didnt spend hours negotiating. Their advertised price really is their best price. Thank you Tim . & the Arrowhead team We???ll be back to see you Lori Denver👍

I came across RT 36 motor cars by accident looking to trade my vehicle in great shape and looking for Jeep Wrangler same condition. Spoke with John first who called me on me filling out e mail to dealer .From the start he made me feel good and was very professional as understanding , helpful on what i was trying to accomplish. Everything he said was very truthful about vehicle he had 2002 Wrangler. On arriving to view this vehicle was greeted by Laura in sales who is friendly as helpful to show me the jeep .I was left to inspect vehicle and was amazed by the condition of this vehicle let alone all vehicles their .I was greeted by Jeff one of the owners who gave me the scoop on the jeep in detail .I also was greeted by John who also is a owner and very honest person .Showed me all involved with the jeep and back ground as best he could .Due to weather conditions i could not bring my vehicle in being stored but sent many pictures so for them unseen but also honest to condition of my vehicle. Old school shake of hands per say i will take the jeep.Paper work done as date set to bring mine in .Great people to deal with for anyone honest friendly hard working to make a deal .On arriving back to get jeep they were ready greeted me as my father who also was amazed on vehicles their as jeep condition friendly service of sale .Only thing is the title was misplaced on jeep per E mail sent to me. I am sure it will be fine and it will turn up or replaced as spoke to Laura who as Jeff assured me all good will be handled. If your lucky to find what your looking for this dealer is it in professional honest people as dealers go .I will return to do business in future on purchasing a vehicle for sure and would highly rate Rt 36 Motorsports as one of the best around .

King for a Day
by Jack from Waikoloa, Hawaii
December 3, 2018
5 5 5 5 5 4.4 (125 reviews)
Cosmo leans towards specialty cars and they happened to be the only one to have the specific color and equipment package I was looking for on a car that has been discontinued. They knew I wanted the car pretty bad, and they knew what they had; they still were very fair on the price. But that is really an aside. These are car people; if they were not doing this they would be doing something else to be close to cars. I came clear from Hawaii and the positive experience started with the wonderful gentleman that picked me up. It would have been worth the trip to just spend the afternoon with him. I met Matt when we arrived and the car was all ready. I was able to meet everyone at the dealership and even a professional driver they sponsor. I doubt Richard Petty himself could have been treated better than I was. Far and away the best experience I had in many years of trading cars. I recommend Cosmo and specifically Matt Glover without reservation.

My husband bought a 2002 Mercury Marquis on Sat Jan 30th 2016 after 18 miles the check engine light came on. We took it to our mechanic who told us it needed a tune up, intake manifold and gaskets. My husband called Jack who told him to bring it back in. We took it back to Mark, the service mechanic. They replaced all the spark plus, manifold, thermostat and gaskets. When we took it back to our mechanic he told us how impressed he was with all the work they did. Very happy!

Bought it as a 2nd vehicle so I can repair one while driving the other. Way more fun than my accord, but obviously less practical. As a convertible it is noisy on the road, and not a ton of interior space. But very fun to drive and easy to work on with lots of space under the hood

No Hassel Dealership

They seem to be basically no hassel - I didn't end up buying a car here, however test drove 2 cars here. Looked out on the lot for about 15 minutes before going inside to ask about 2 cars I found online. They gave me the keys straight away, I drove the cars, then came in and asked about getting one of them inspected, he said there someone was waiting to buy it, I figured that was just a sales technique to get me to commit to the car and walked out, but sure enough the car was sold the next day. My bad. They seem to have a good inventory of the price range I was looking for 5-7K. In retrospect, I think I could have used a little more help.

This car was a good find for the money. It handles the road like nothing I've driven before. It holds the road, corners on a dime and gives you 9 cents change. This is the 3rd vehicle that I've found on cars.com in the last 2 years.
