Had such a good experience looking for a used vehicle for my daughter. Visited multiple dealerships around the area and none of them listened to my wishlist the way Encinitas Ford did. I saw some negative reviews when I went to post this and I can fully say I disagree with them. They probably changed their process because the experience was 10/10.
Today I bought my third car from Kip... Once again he has made the process not only easy, but enjoyable.
I contacted him yesterday and explained my situation, he immediately replied and said to meet him at the store at 10am.
By noon my wife and I were driving away in my new 2015 Scion TC (fully loaded with only 10k miles). Kip is not only the most honest dealer I've ever known, he is a great guy and a friend!
Thinks Kip and everyone at 5 Grand Autoland!
To everyone at 5 Grand Autoland, I just wanted to drop you all a line and express my gratitude and appreciation for exemplary customer service and going above and beyond in making my car purchasing experience Incredible. Being in Sales for twenty plus years myself. I have just purchased a car from 5 Grand Autoland in the past week, and it was actually an amazing experience.Kip's goal, from the outset, was to serve: to find me the car I wanted at a price I could afford: no hype, no pressure, just personal, caring service. It almost seemed too good to be true, but everything Kip promised and more has been delivered. Kip was an amazingly professional and honest person to work with. I did not feel pressured to make a hasty purchase at all, as a matter of fact he directed me to several alternative vehicles that fit my budget and had the qualities that I was looking for. This dealership (5Grand AutoLand) definitely defies the high pressure sales environment stereotype that car dealerships. I would definitely recommend this dealership to anyone looking to purchase a car. Chris Sheffer
I was shopping for a new used car and saw they had a few cars I would like. Stopped by to look on their lot. They have some nice cars... I could tell they take pride in their cars.. saw a silver bmw convertible that looked great. I loved the no pressure attitude. Prices seemed fair especially after the salesman told me all repairs and maintenance had already been done. He showed me the back and I saw a bunch of guys working on cars. I had my own financing, and they had me out of there in less than 1 hour. It's been about 2 months now, and I still love my BMW.. thanks Boo. You have a customer for life.
Mark was my salesperson. He was knowledgeable and did not give me the "car salesman" feeling. He listens and pays attention to your remarks. I was very satisfied with the buying experience. Hertz gives great deals on those used cars, I did not even negotiate. The facility is comfortable but looks like a trailer with AC that does not need to be blasting! While the finance guy (bought my car cash) was very nice and courteous, the buying process could be shorter. Although this is not due to Hertz's financial service, but to the number of documents we have to sign. I have to point out that it was much faster at Hertz than at my previous dealership. So to conclude, go there, buy it, and drive home.
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 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.
Thank you Thank you! Stan and Mike where Awesome! Will tell everyone! When you think there???s no one that could help me, but to my surprise, they got me into a new car! This team of people that helped me will For Ever be part of my family.🤗 too Stan and Mike M.
