North State Auto Review
Great car buying experience

I bought a 2013 535i from NorthState Auto and it was the best car buying experience I ever had. First of all, our sales rep, Milo greeted us and we explained the type of car we were looking for. Within minutes we were out for a test drive and we were having a lot of fun. After we came back we discussed semantics about financing. It was a very relaxed environment and we were able to talk about everything we need to. Once we got down to business, Tim from finance stepped in and helped us further. He helped us understand in detail and answered all the further questions we had. We never felt pressured or anything to make a purchase as the sales reps don't work on commission. I personally have never been in a dealership that has that sort of work environment but I do have to say that it was very pleasing to not have someone pressure me into making a purchase. All in all Milo, Tim and the owner of the dealership(sorry I forgot your name good sir) were outstanding with their customer support and the ability to answer all the questions we had. Thank you guys again for everything.

The most fun car for the money, hands down.

The car is exiting and thrilling. The value of the car holds very well. It is daily derivable and very reliable. This is by far the most fun car for the money.

Purchased a couple of classic cars and had them both inspected and serviced by Gator. Dan was very professional and honest in his assessment of needed repairs while keeping the cars original.
2005 Lotus Elise Review
Beautiful, sporty and reliable.

There is a reason these cars have had such low percentages of depreciation. A Toyota drivetrain for reliability along with stunning good looks and the kind of performance typically reserved for cars with way many more zeros attached to the price tag. The only price to pay is that the car has spartan creature comforts, but if that is the most important thing to you, let's be honest, this shouldn't be on the radar for you. Bang for buck, can't beat it with a Lotus Elise.

Motorcars of Atlanta Review
Very Well Done!

My wife and I abhor the process of dealing with car salespeople. From the moment we drove into the dealership the 'feel' was instantly different. Our first encounter was with Mario (not even a salesperson). He told us the salesman we were to meet was delivering another car for a customer, so it would be a while before we met him. He then very kindly ushered us to the car of our interest and simply said, "Please, have a seat in the car, enjoy it and I'll try to answer any questions you may have." No pressure, no worries. Next in line was Paul (our salesperson, Blake was still not available yet), a salesperson. He also was very attentive and retrieved the key and took me for a test drive. Again, no pressure....just helpful, helpful, helpful. Finally, we met Blake and the process continued be be nothing but exceptional in every respect. We did not expect to buy the car that day however, the process (and of course the exquisite car) was so comfortable, natural and easy, we bought our V12s. Kudos, kudos, kudos to a real team at Motorcars of Georgia. Thank you Blake, Paul and Mario.

The type of car that requires dedication

This car is definitely not the most comfortable or practical car, so if you are looking to buy that you need to undersatand you will have to make some compromise. It is an exotic car and there are always people looking at it and you and often I found myself talking to complete strangers about it. Overall I enjoyed my experience with the care but as I said it isn’t perfect especially for daily commutes.

Your MTH Review
Very Good Buying Experience
by Race Car Crew Chief from LaCrosse Wi

With all the autos Ive bought thru the years (im 60) This was one of the most pleasant transactions Ive had. Right from the start talking to Mike on the phone before making the 4 hr ride to St Cloud for a test drive I could tell that they were there to work with me. Before making the trip we had most of the details worked out including a fair price. Nothing I hate more is surprises at the end and there was none of that here. I wasn't buying a truck but my dream car, a 2012 Grand Sport Anniversary Edition Corvette that they had taken in on trade. One thing that attracted me to MTH is there offer of FREE delivery anywere. I would assume that most times an open hauler is used witch is fine but being that winter was closing in I asked for an enclosed trailer and they never blinked. It took a little while to line it up but I told them not to rush as I was in no hurry. To get a car delivered in an enclosed trailer at no cost just doesn't happen everywere! Im more than happy with MTH and when I go to buy my next truck they will be first on my list.
2005 Lotus Elise Review
Does what it engineered for exceptionally well
by TheStig from Columbus, Ohio
June 21, 2018

The Lotus Elise was built to be a road going track car. It is just that. Dont get into this thinking its going to be great for a long road trip although I have spent a few hours at a time in it. Its always shocking to me when people fault it for being exactly what it is. What is it? A small, low, nimble, light, simple vehicle, with great engineering. There are very few driver aids like power steering and the air conditioning is almost useless if temps get into the 90's. But that's the point. It's a drivers car through and through. They didn't pretend by dressing it up and calling it a sports car that you can take to the track. Instead, its a street legal race car that you can park in your garage.
