Bought and Shipped Site Unseen
November 5, 2018
So I am not new to buying cars online but typically I fly to the dealership and inspect the car prior to purchasing. This was my first experience of buying a vehicle and having it shipped to me without seeing or test driving the vehicle. Needless to say I was very nervous, especially because the price was so much lower than other vehicles with the same year and mileage. I meticulously looked over the pictures and reviewed the CarFax. I also read many of the reviews listed on the cars.com site and this was the deciding factor to make me buy. I could not be happier with the purchase. This was the easiest most seamless purchase that I have had. All my questions where answered immediately and honestly. They worked extremely hard to find the cheapest shipping price for me (and quick). It was a great experience! The car was better than described, they tend to not over describe the car I am guessing to make sure that you are not disappointed. I do want to remind you that you are not purchasing a new car and you should expect some wear based on the year. With that being said, I feel my car was excellent for the year, miles, and price. It runs smoothly, does not have any lights on, and everything works as stated in the online description. Granted I have not put a lot of miles on it at this point but I could not be more pleased thus far. This was a big risk as you can imagine, but I asked a simple question and feel that I received an honest answer (would you purchase this car for your family site unseen). Without hesitation, I got a simple yes and that he had actually considered the car for his family but decided to wait another year to replace their current car. I encourage you to give the dealership a chance with an online purchase. They seem to display all the characteristics you would hope for in a family owned business; honesty, integrity, individualized customer service, and pride in the work they do. This will be the first website I check when I need another car because of the experience. The only negative I can list is my daughter is claiming the car as hers.....but nothing related to the car or the purchasing experience.
