Ron Jorda
by Ron Jordan from Manchester, TN
November 5, 2018
Today I bought my SEVENTH vehicle from these guys in the last 6 years. Temporarily laid up by an accident, I could not get to their dealership and test drive the car. From my previous experiences, I knew I would not be lied to about the car, so I bought it with zero test driving, and the Wade arranged to have the car delivered 65 miles away. This is how much trust I have in this dealer. For great service and an honest and transparent dialogue, Auto Pro is the FIRST place to stop and shop.

GREAT Classic SUV
by thevelvetfog1 from Portland, Oregon

Everything you want - nothing you don't need. I previously owned a '90 4Runner and the upgrades are really nice (tinted windows, power windows and locks, rear hatch that swings up to act as a rain shield but you can still roll down the back window to access cargo area, 6 cylinders for more power, etc.). And, of course, Toyota reliability.

Excellent customer service! 🏆 Rocky P. and the whole team are awesome. We found the car we wanted online and Rocky was quick to respond to our inquiry. No pressure, friendly and very accommodating (even after the purchase was complete). Plus they made sure the car was fully detailed before we took it home. Mo M. and the finance team made sure that I got the best loan possible! We will be coming back to Maximum when in the market for our next vehicle. 🚘 👍👍

Not once has a Toyota in general ever let me down. My little 4-Runner may have had some age on her but that didn’t slow her down. She outlasted my fiancé’s newer model Chevy trailblazer by thousands of miles!

Best piece of rust ever
by 4Runner Dude from Dayton, Ohio
December 5, 2018
5
Aside from all the rust issues, which are easily remedied if caught soon enough, is a very solid suv/light truck. Gas mileage is not that great honestly, but it will always get from point A to B, as long as you've done even basic maintenance on it. Mine just hit 360k miles with the 3.4L v6, and only issues are from abusing it, and even then it takes a whole lot to break it. For example, popped an axle seal and the diff went dry for about 7k miles before grenading and getting rebuilt, not recommending any one does that, but it sure held up fine for way longer than it should have. She's my daily driver and off-roader, couldn't ask for a better truck.

I recently had an accident where my truck was totaled and I was looking at used trucks on car fax. Jason Barnes was great to work with through the entire process. He emailed me and I told him I wanted to test drive a truck I found online. He was very patient and was willing to help any way he could. I actually test drove two trucks and bought the second one. Jason is a super nice guy and he answered all my questions. I’m not sure who was more excited me or Jason! I will recommend Jason and Bart’s Car Store to anyone who is looking for a truck! Everyone that helped along the way to getting me in my new F150 I thank you very much!!

Daily Driver, 275K Miles

Oustanding quality and reliability, no major maintenance, manufactured in Japan. I have had to replace wear items over the years oil, tires, timing belts, batteries (original Panasonic lasted 10 years), driver seat cover, floor mats, one fuel injector, muffler, no frame or body rust. I did update the radio to Toyota radio from 2011 4Runner ($30 ebay) to connect iPod. The 3.4L V6 and automatic transmission were designed to last and conquer Rocky Mountain highways and roads.

Honesty and professionalism!

Alonzo Horn at Car Source helped us make a purchase when we went shopping for a reliable used car. He was honest with us from the get go, the moment we contacted him about the car we liked, he told us the pros and cons. When we arrived for the test drive (we drove to Grove City from Athens) he promptly let us know the details of the issue and also got the issue fixed once the deal was worked out so that we could take home our car without any worries. Alonzo was friendly in his approach and I appreciate his openness about the issues of the car and the promptness with which it was repaired. I appreciate the whole Team Car Source for making this a wonderful and hassle-free experience and would definitely recommend Car Source to a friend .

I have had my 1997 SR5 for over 17 years and It was the best decision I have ever made! I have kept up on maintenance and she is pushing close to 300K miles. She looks good and runs Great!!! A major blizzard dumped a few feet of snow Christmas 2006 leaving big bad A 4wheel drives Stuck ALL over town and the highways. NOT my Runner!! She doesn't pretend to be a Bad A, she IS one!! I LOVE my Runner!! I will drive her until everything falls off or I'm standing at the pearly gates. Which ever comes first!! (Probably the pearly gates). Heehee! I know my boys will battle to see who gets her next!! FYI: One review said worst purchase ever? He was on wrong review site because he called the Runner a car!! HaaaHeeehaaa!!!

I got a great deal on a used 2005 Pontiac Sunfire.
by Lauren from Dupont, WA
December 3, 2018
5 5 5 5 5 4.2 (8 reviews)
I bought a used 2005 Pontiac Sunfire two weeks ago from 507 Motorsports. Before I purchased the car, I had it professionally inspected for any issues (I paid $250 at Brown's Auto Care (nearby), to include a compression engine test - engine tests are expensive -- a regular inspection is about $100). The only issue that was found was a leaky oil seal. 507 Motorsports adjusted the price accordingly. One week later, I discovered that my windshield washer fluid dispenser wasn't working due to a huge crack in the reservoir. 507 Motorsports owner, Jason, tried to fix it for me for free with heavy duty epoxy, but there is still a small crack in it. He said that if I bring him a new water reservoir, then he'll fix it for free. I don't think that the car was sold to me with a broken reservoir (I checked it before leaving the lot, and the windshield washer fluid dispenser worked). After I bought the car, several people (snow tire installers, back-up camera installers, Brown's Auto Care - to fix the leaky oil seal) messed around near that area, and perhaps it was accidentally cracked. At any rate, I bought a car in good mechanical condition (the important stuff is working perfectly) with new tires at 507 Motorsports for a really good price, so I'm happy (I discovered that when I had my snow tires installed that my car came with new all-season tires). My recommendation is that if you are serious about buying a car at 507 Motorsports (or any used car dealership that doesn't offer a warranty/guarantee), it's best to pay $100 or so for a semi-thorough inspection at a nearby auto shop, and if something is broken, the dealership will work with you to fix it before you buy it because they want happy customers. Otherwise, go to a place that sells certified, warrantied pre-owned vehicles (you will be paying much, much more for the car than a measly $100 inspection) and buy your car there.

Best vehicle ever made
by DaveG from Seattle
September 15, 2014

I have owned numerous cars and trucks over the last 35 years and I must say that out of all of them, my '97 4runner has been the most reliable, least expensive to maintain and thoroughly enjoyable to drive. I bought it as a demo in '98 with 19k on it when my wife was pregnant with our daughter and we have owned it ever since. I recently gave the key to our now sixteen year old daughter who refuses to drive anything else. Recently, I put new shocks on it at 225,000 miles and have been through 3 sets of michelins but the only other thing I have done is service it regularly and replace the battery twice. We have gone on numerous family vacations with all our stuff and dogs in it. There are still no squeaks and rattles which is more than I can say about our 2014 Mazda6. These rigs were made in an era when Toyota decided to conquer the American market through quality and reliability and at a point in time where design and manufacturing techniques actually worked. You will not find this level of quality on the newer lineup. I would buy another one except I don't need it. Also, a friend of mine who recently traded in his very clean '98 4runner for a new Audi SUV told me that the Audi sales rep bought it off the lot for himself after the deal because he loved it.

I have owned three different 4Runner Toyotas within 25 years. Never had a problem with any of them. The Toyota salespeople like to see me when I go in to sell my car and buy a new one. All of my 4Runners were in excellent condition, look like new and had low mileage on each one when it was time to trade it in for a new 4Runner.

I purchased my 4Runner new in 1996 and it's been running great for the last 18 years. It has never let me down through all kinds of terrain and weather. Even the white paint looks new after all these years. I've driven the Runner on two cross-country trips with a third scheduled this year. Total cost of ownership is going down with each passing year and I will never sell this SUV.
