I've known Dennis for about 6 years now . I've bought 5 cars from him and I'm very happy every time . Even when I didn't have all the money to give down he worked with me . Because I couldn't get financed he did inside house financing . I can't comment on his staff but Denise is a great guy . That's y I keep going back . Keep up the good work !!!

I called about Dennis possibly buying my car. I told the reception woman all the information and she put me on hold. He came on the phone without so much as a greeting, asked me what was wrong with the car and then curtly informed me that he was not interested, it's not worth his while. He says on his website call with any inquires, but he left me feeling like I had done something wrong by even asking. If I ever have a need in the future to sell a car that would be worth his while, I will not take my business to him. How you treat people matters.

I'm sure its a nice business and all but they should probably first learn how to answer a phone correctly. I was first hung up on without even being replied to, then I called back. A woman answered the phone without even a greeting and said they sold the car already. Like I was wasting her time. Rude. Walk before you run.

Bought a nice used Mustang convertible from Dennis toward the end of October and I wanted to give it a good month before writing this review.  I want to say I am very happy with my purchase.  It's a strong-running car that I can see being with me for a lifetime when cared for correctly.  The interaction was pleasant and totally pain-free.  Dennis is totally willing to work with you on finding a car you can afford and live with.  The only reason I won't go 5 stars is that my wife made a down-payment on a car that his son accidentally sold before we got back.  Other than that check out the vehicles and the Dude!

Dealt with dennis over the phone for a friend and true to his word he gave $7,000 for her car (Masada 3) which was $500 more than anyone else.   Was quick and easy, both he and Pablo were very nice to deal with.

Don't bother getting a quote to sell your car from this place over the phone because, as another reviewer mentioned, he will offer you a fraction of the original offer once you get to his lot. Don't waste your time with a place that uses these dishonest bait and switch negotiation tactics. There are much better, more honest alternatives out there to sell your car.

I cannot fault Dennis - an honest and straightforward dealer who does not sell lemons. I would recommend him to anyone!

I helped my girlfriend get a car through these guys (Dennis and Pablo) and found them very straight forward and helpful as she was still had a bank loan on her car and they worked with the bank for her and still gave her as much as anyone else would ($7000) for her car.  Would not hesitate to use them again.

These people gotta be kidding me.  Dennis is a dirt bag. I had a 1962 Ford Galaxie he was interested in.  He asked me to send him pictures.  He then made me an offer of $5500 and asked me to come down. I live in Hacienda heights and he's skit 45 minutes away. When I got there he complained about a dent in the car, the car being lowered and he said if it would be fine it was a Chevy.  What a bozo. All these things were easily visible in the pictures.  So then he asked me what I want for it.  I said you offered me $5500 already.  He said, no way, we are way off.  Just like that. He had me drive all the way there just to b.s. me.  What a grand waste of time.  All these reviews must be written by people he has played. He's a schmuck. ..

What a cool guy, no runaround , 100% legit! although we couldn't  close a deal for my truck,  I wouldn't hesitate to look at his inventory and possibly buy a car! thank you Dennis for your customer service honesty!

Great customer service from Dennis. Would return. Funny guy and very straight forward. Central location. Very kind and thorough.

I recently had my car totaled and was really looking high and low for the perfect used car. I looked at several different cars and dealerships but just couldnt find my perfect car until I met Dennis. Not only was the car in excellent condition, most importantly Dennis was a really great and honest man. I immediately had a good feeling about him and he was very trust wortthy. I told him my situation and exactly what I could pay out the door. He worked with me and the next day I drove home in my new awesome used BMW. I highly recomend Dennis to buy or trade in your used car. He made the entire experience stess free. He also offered to help me when my car needs to be serviced so I can get the best deal. When purchasing a used car its nice to know there are still honest guys out there!

When it comes down to it, it's all about the end result. Nothing fancy about this place which results in better pricing. I went in and sold my truck to Dennis. He gave me a very fair price, was honest in his appraisal, and took his time to make the deal happen. I am very happy with the service and Dennis is a genuinely nice guy as well. Thanks Dennis for making it a great transaction.

Sold my car to Dennis today and was absolutely delighted with the experience.
We came up with a very fair price.
Denni is a nice guy who actually tried to help me out the most he could.

Definitely recommend this dealership !

Sold my car to Dennis today and I feel he really gave me a competitive fair price.  I'm the sort of person who doesn't have a lot of time to mess around with potential buyers coming to my home, so it was just easier to hand the keys over to Dennis and not worry about it.  If you want to sell your car, I'd recommend giving him a try!

Very good experience, we stopped by to look at the cars, they were very well priced. Even though that day we had no intentions of making a purchase , we were made an offer that was hard to pass on. We purchased a Volvo great car.

I just bought a car here and was surprised at how easy it was.   Dennis is up front and really nice.  It was a no-hassle, easy process.  I bought a car and was out of there in an hour.  Would recommend for buying or selling a car to anyone.

I'm not afraid to admit that I chose to visit Dennis after watching his ridiculously random/fabulous YouTube videos (… )

Long story short- I'm pretty sure Dennis was an honest guy. I've had the car for about 45 hours so I don't want to be too quick to say he was soooooo rad. But the guy is not a douche, not pushy (though he did manage to get me to spend $1500 more than I wanted to originally, but I did get a much better car). He's a human, out to make a living. He finances clients himself, so no third-party dealing through banks and lenders.

Overall a painless experience, and one that, so far, I'd recommend heartily.

Dennis is a real guy. Loves guitars and is down to earth.
Sold my car to him. It took 15 minutes.
Don't waste your time at Car max, it takes hours.
