I have been sesrching for a low-cost second car since May. It is now late November. In the past, I have been sent on test drives by other dealers selling in this price range in cars with no gas, rotten tires, and systems barely hanging on. (I seriously feared for my life in the car with no working windshield wipers!).Cut to the important part: my experience with AutoNation Ford Marietta (GA) was thoroughly professional, honest, and considerate. I took the car to my mechanic, who pronounced it in sound condition, despite high mileage. AutoNation had already made the repairs to make this car safe and affordable. I anticipate only minor maintenance in the near future. I would definitely recommend this dealer to a friend.
Travis Foster is the man. There was a lot of negativity dealing with the sale of my CLS 550 but he stepped up to the plate and hit an home run. If it wasn't for his professionalism I would never have purchased the vehicle. Make sure you ask for Travis👍🏼
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.
After visiting several of the typical dealerships I walked away confused and Unsatisfied. After visiting Carvana.com I picked out a vehicle to my liking and price point fill out the paperwork got approval I had my new vehicle delivered to my front door. Most typical dealerships you spend half a day walking away with an overpriced vehicle in an overpriced interest-rate. Carvana has made it an enjoyable experience and it can be done from the luxury of your Home. Thanks Carvana.
Chester was so friendly and knowledgeable and the staff was really welcoming and inviting. It was a nice clean quite environment I like how they act like a family. The buying process was simple and easy and the salesman are not pushy.
Usual bait and switch car ad. Ad stated 21k for a Ford Mustang GT but when contacted the price was 30k. Talked to a sales rep about other cars in inventory and literally every car she sent info on was priced over the budget we discussed.
Very easy to purchase, the entire thing happened over email and the papers were signed via overnight FedEx. Less than 1 week later, the car was in my driveway. It does take longer than a traditional dealer, but you don't have to sit there for hours while the paperwork and financing takes place. The car came in immaculate condition, no paint chips, no scratches. Interior was perfectly detailed and cleaned. Good price, low mileage, clean history report.
I live about 250 miles from Atlanta but based on previous car purchases I knew it sometimes pays to travel to get a good price. I didn't choose Rick Case Kia because of their reputation. In fact, I didn't even read the reviews. I chose Rick Case because I found the specific exterior/interior color combination of the Kia Sorento I wanted and they had a recent price reduction posted on their website. I initiated contact via online form. That was on a Thursday evening and I was checking to confirm availability. I heard back late Thursday night that the vehicle was avaiable. I replied and asked about getting that posted price AND the 0% financing through Kia Motor Finance. On Friday I received an email from Kendrick, the Sales Manager, with an out the door price quote. There was a slight difference due to not being able to combine one of the offered rebates with the 0% financing but that was understandable. I asked Kendrick if they were being aggressive on trade-ins and he said they were. My trade-in was a Mazda 6 and Kendrick said that there is a Rick Case Mazda dealership close to the Kia one and that someone from there would be able to appraise my car. I had arranged for a relative to ride with me in case I decided to keep my Mazda. She had to cancel but after having talked to Kendrick I felt confident driving alone with the expectation I would get a fair trade value. I told Kendrick I would drive up Saturday and on Saturday morning, sales associate Dylan called me to confirm I was still coming and said to ask for him when I arrived. I arrived about 2:30 and Dylan had me supply some preliminary info for my trade-in. While my car was being appraised we took a test drive and Dylan thoroughly explained the features of the vehicle. When we returned Dylan had me fill out the credit app. He returned shortly with a final out the door price including my trade-in value. I signed right away because it just felt right - all the numbers were good. It did take a while to get in with Mr. Yi, the Finance Manager, because of problems with their system that day but he was very friendly and explained additional extended warranty options without making me feel overly pressured. After signing the final papers with Mr. Yi it took a while longer for them to finish detailing my new vehicle.
So there you have it. Probably less than 4 hours at the dealership total to purchase a new vehicle and trade one in. I don't think it can get much easier than that. And I'm loving my new Kia Sorento SX! Very refined ride quality. A few nitpicky things but, overall, Kia has done a great job.
I would definitely give Rick Case Kia a shot at earning your business if you have the opportunity.
When shopping for a vehicle most know it's not an enjoyable process. Well I can say Herb Michael was a pleasure to work with. He was very knowledgeable and patient. I can easily say when it's time to shop again I will absolutely use Herb.
I'm completely happy with my choice to purchase a 2018 Explorer. Four months ago I spoke with Pervis Reynolds regarding the Explorer and he provided inciteful information regarding body style, feature upgrades and finance options over current lease. I was torn between getting a new Jeep Cherokee Laredo and the Ford. He emailed me some specs and asked me to look them over. I later decided to not get a new vehicle because I didn't want to give up on my old jeep. After a few more months of check engine light issues and countless small repairs I had enough of watching the tow truck take my baby away.
I contacted Pervis and asked for his help again. I informed him of what I wanted. "I just want the heated seats and light interior. I don't care about the other technology features". That was my claim. He checked into the vehicle I wanted and set me up for an appointment that evening. After the test drive I was sold on the vehicle even though the interior is dark. "No denim jean residue on the dark leather". Pervis is right! I even love the technology.
My jeep was good to me for 18 years but I'm loving this Explorer and all the technical features Pervis sold me on. I appreciate his knowledge, kindness and professionalism. Pervis worked hard on my deal and I'm grateful. He's an awesome guy.
Purchased a used car from AutoNation, Union City, Ga. They tout that they do a "rigorous inspection" on their vehicles before offering them for sale. If that's the case, then why was one tire found to be installed wrong (directional tire and the "inside" marking was facing out). Two tires were way overinflated to 54 psi, one tire was underinflated at 24 psi and only one was pretty close, at 34 psi. When I checked the oil at home, I found the car over a quart low on oil. Had to make a Wal-Mart run to pick up a couple quarts of Mobil 1. I'm not sure what they deem "rigorous", but if they don't even check tire pressures and fluid levels, well...…….
