Best buying experience to date
November 5, 2018
I got an absolute steal on a low mileage lifted Tacoma that's the envy of all who behold its magnificence. I couldn't be more proud of my truck, or more pleased with Sam & Dave's. I contacted Sam & Dave's through their website and got a response from Jonathan within hours. I called him and told him which of his trucks caught my eye, expressing that it was near but not quite within my budget. He was direct and no-nonsense in responding with the lowest price he could offer, with no sales pressure whatsoever. I struggled over the next week to find a better deal on the same truck anywhere from Southwest Virginia to South Florida, both from auto dealers and from private owners. I couldn't. My credit union loan agent was even impressed with the price. Jonathan continued to honor the price he quoted me with steadfast honesty. There were no doc fees or any other unpleasant surprises: the price he quoted was the exact dollar amount of the check he accepted (not including tax and tags of course, which I'll handle at the county clerk's office back here in TN). He even agreed without debate to fill up the gas tank, give it a wash, and replace a missing tire valve stem cap while we completed the sale. A few people have given Sam & Dave's unfavorable reviews. Most seem to come from customers expecting the reliability of a new Honda from cars of unreasonable age or mileage. Caveat emptor, people. If your budget is less than 10 grand, you're going to end up with someone else's problems. On the other hand, if you limit your choices to vehicles with low mileage, I think you'll be pleased with Sam and Dave's.
