Palomino Motors is staffed with knowledgeable, friendly, and honest people. None of the usual sales games. I would recommend them to friends, and we'll be back when we are in the market for another vehicle. The best!

If u only need space for 2, this is the car for you. I am a car enthusiast and use this for my daily beater. The car is more car than most give it credit for and is fun to drive as an enthusiast. It handles and is capable at freeway speed. Unfortunately there won't be anymore of the gas powered cars here in the US. I don't know that I will replace this when the lease expires with the electric. I hope that Mercedes reconsiders and brings back the gas powered version.
Dominic was great to work with. I found out about the dealership from a friend who has purchased 4 vehicles from there, and I have told several people that they should check consider it when they decide to purchase their next car truck.
A Secret, I Guess - Get 1 B4 Others Hear

Really, the best value in a car I have ever experienced (Value = Performance divided by cost)! Did you know that both the cost of the 2016 Smart ForTwo Electric and beefed up home charger have tax credits to offset about 25% purchase price? Did you know that you do not have to purchase the internal battery or maintain it because you can just rent that battery? By the way, that means you save a few thousand in your initial purchase price. The cockpit is surprisingly roomy, get in one to convince yourself!
We go where ever we want in town, without worries at minimal cost.
I'll bet you can not find a new Smart ForTwo Electric to buy, We were told that Mercedes Benz loses $ with every purchase.
Rick was awesome from beginning to the end!
AJ answered my email inquiry on a Sunday and got the ball rolling! No games, No gimmicks HERE PEOPLE!! They took a chance on me and financed the car I WANTED!!! For that alone I’m grateful! God blessed me with this car and Rick and AJ were a help in the process! I will go back and buy my second car from the GUYS here!
Thanks Again Mr. Rick! You are awesome!
Great gas mileage
by Kellie from littleton, CO

I use this car for business purposes. I drive about 1500 miles per month. I live in Colorado so it’s cold in the winter. I get approximately 42 miles to the gallon in the winter and about 38 in the summer because of the air conditioning. This is definitely not a luxury vehicle but it’s really not bad especially for the price. It has a great turning radius. There is a lot more room inside then you would expect.
It has a very tight suspension so you are very aware of every bump that you hit. It also has a 70 hp engine so if you expect to get from 0 to 60 in anything less than five minutes this probably isn’t the car for you. However, I have never had any issues with the car and is very reliable. I have put approximately 40,000 miles on it since I got it and it currently has 60,000.
My biggest complaint with the car is that rattles regularly, like something is loose but I cannot figure out what it is. It is worth mentioning that this used to be a ’Car to Go’ and who knows what they did to it to fit it for their credit card charging systems, so this may be their fault. You can hear road noise quite a bit in this car.
I love the fact that it is little and you can park it anywhere. You could make a U-turn basically anywhere. It does not go well in the snow so if you live in a snowy climate you might consider something else unless you have a winter vehicle.
I have now been to this facility twice in the last two years (once to get an appraisal for a vehicle I ended up selling myself and now (Sept/2018) for a used vehicle purchase. Both times great, but this most recent was a shockingly easy process throughout with a very good person (Greg Leo) from CarMax.
I had a specific need and the car was in CA (I am in TX) and Greg set up delivery, responded to any request I had, and kept me informed at all times of the stages. When I met him for actual purchase, I was in and out of the process (including a trade in) in 2 hours (prob could have done less but we got along well). This IS the way car buying should be done! Period. Great people, great business model.
I also used CarMax financing with zero issues (excellent credit) and there is no pressure involved whatsoever (it is built into their process).

I am in love with his car, so small and cute. Easy to drive around the city and so economical for getting back and forth to work. I am so happy that I found this vehicle with cars.com
Great car buying experience! The guys there are awesome and very helpful. They were able to answer all my questions and gave me a better deal than all the other places I went to. Would definitely recommend if you are looking for a new car.
A small car with more than you would think
by Chuckie from The Villages FL

This little car was great for local travel. It had great safety features. Once on a recall, we were give a brand new Mercedes as a free loaner. The Smart Car was more comfortable.
Top notch, hi end dealership. My salesman Kenneth answered all questions and really made me and my wife feel at home. He took the time to answer all questions and let us test drive as many cars as we wanted with no hesitations. I really believed he wanted is to leave very satisfied. This is the reason I am and will continue to be a repeat customer.
2009 Brabus, 9 years later n still no problems
by RADA from Fl
March 23, 2018
Bought new and has been 100% reliable. The Brabus edition is more sporty with sport tuned suspension offset wheels 17" wide rear 15" front . Porsche style dual exhaust. Drive it daily. I change the oil every 10k miles full synthetic. Air cleaner every year and run premium fuel. I add Marvel Mystery oil (4 oz) to the gas a few times a month and that's it. Runs just like new. Love the car. When it hits 200k I'll buy another one.
Since the first conversation, Keith was very helpful! Answering, all my questions, etc. When we got to the Dealership, he was Gentleman from the first handshake! He spent as much time as we needed to feel comfortable about our purchase! Keith, even helped us with directions to motels and restaurants as well!! I have called Keith during the sale and ALWAYS responsive with in an hour!!! I will definitely, recommend e-one car to my family and friends! Thanks, for the EXCELLENT service! Thanks, Keith From your Arkansas friends!!! Steve and Jacque Zimmerman
Fit for the use.
June 18, 2018
Urban use with agility. Obvious easy to park and maneuver. Enough autonomy for the day.
Don’t expect a V8 but delivers the proposal of a good choice.
Went in to inspect a car that I saw online and drove it home that day. The most pressure free car experience that I have ever had and great finance department.
Way more roomy than you'd expect
by Bushbaby1234 from Springfield, MO

I'm almost 6 foot tall and i still have a few inches of headroom. i also don't have any legroom issues either. the car is surprisingly peppy for being a tiny engine in a fairly weighty car. it also has no problem handling the large hills here in MO. visibility is great with its huge windows.
Found a sweeeeetttt NIssan 370Z on Cars.com, submitted my RFI and they got back to me very quickly. Had a nice phone conversation (initially) about 10 days ago, sill had a couple of questions. Have emailed waiting for answers, then may buy. The second person I talked with said the price online is firm (I think there is room to negotiate - ESPECIALLY since the car is being sold "as is", which means I could be on the hook for hundreds or dollars, or more, of repairs). But, all in all, it looks like they have reasonably priced, if somewhat higher mileage, used cars.
Great fuel efficient vehicle

Had it for 5 years, not a single repair besides regular oil changes and brake pads. Parts are not expensive at all. Fun car and great on gas
Very happy with my car buying experience. I recommend this place to anyone who is looking to buy a car. Thank you very much guys!
Very fun car for city driving
by HelG from Los Angeles, CA
June 16, 2018
This was my first car, and I my third. It is incredibly agile and fun to drive in the city. Super easy to park and very cool look. It's definitely a conversation starter! I love the way it looks and drive, but it is a 2 seater, which becomes quite useless when you decide to start a family.
If you consider buying a Smart Fortwo, you have to accept that this is not a road trip car, at all. But for city drive, nothing beats it. Super easy to park, fun to drive and incredible gaz mileage. Also, I really like the look of it, and it’s definitely a conversation starter!
Very pleased with purchase and the professional enviroment and treatment of the sales staff. I was especially pleased with my salesman Ali Hussain and the complete sales experience. I would recommend Mr. Ali Hussain to all of my friends that would be looking for a vehicle.
My Smart. We’re just the smartest

I enjoy this car very much. I get 40 miles to a gallon and the car runs great... the safety features keep me assured I would make it through a wreck. I love the attention, too. Everyone looks when I drive by...
it’s just a shame that a dealer is very difficult to find in california.
Mr. Kevin is one of the nicest people I know always there to help we brought a car and my son had a blow out we called him and without hesitation he gave me a quote and said bring it in he's a true blessing again thank you so much for taking care of our son

Wasn't a bad car I would buy another one ... It's probably not for the guy living on a farm or a rough road area but was great for the here and there trips in town
