I am a happy customer since purchasing my car, love at first sight. I other reviews that are negative but Amir and his staff were very helpful. I had a couple of minor problems took my car back to them and Amir personally took care of it and gave me a loaner. I have recommend Autobaun to my family & friends. I will be back to buy my next car in the near future. They really do treat you like family. A+ in my book.

My husband and I had an exceptionally great experience with Shane! We looked at a couple of cars on their lot! Test drove the cars and narrowed it down to the one that made us most happy with! Talked numbers and we got exactly what we wanted to spend not a penny more! I am happy to say this was by far the most easiest car transaction we've ever made!! Thanks Autobaun!!

I've been waiting to write this review for a while now.

I bought a used Prius from here and it completely died 3 months after buying it. Apparently they reset the error codes and hid the fact that the car needed a catalytic converter. By the time the warning lights came back on it was too late. The engine was completely gone and the cost to repair was the same price as the car! Thousands of dollars down the drain!!

Don't get fooled by these guys. 5 star reviews here are fake!

Stay away from this place, it's been 2 months since I traded my car in and they have not made the off Payment to my original bank. Instead, they've made a monthly Payment pretending to be me.  I only found out because the bank sent me an email with my next scheduled payment due. When I called the bank to say I traded it in months ago, they informed me it was still under my name. Legally Autobon has 20 days to pay it off, it's been over 2 months. I requested them to make the payoff immediately or I'll take legal action! It's fraud!!

This review is long overdue. These guys are great! I had a limited down payment..bad credit..still owed on my trade-in..but these guys pulled it off & I was able to drive off in a 2005 Toyota Prius with less than 40k miles!! Almost brand new..these guys were life savers. I would definitely recommend them.

I bought a 1995 Classic BMW hard top convertible from Autobaun. I was surprised to see an older car with such low miles and in great condition.  The hard top had never been removed so the soft top was in prestige condition. I have had my car for about a year or a little more and I adore it. I have had no problems at all. I got an oil change just recently and had the mechanic check everything just to be over cautious.

The price I paid and the car I have I am very pleased with my investment.

I plan on trading my car in at Autobaun at some point in the future for an SUV and can't wait to work with them again.

Over all, I had a great experience. Thank You Autobaun!

This place is a rip off. Active-duty military STAY AWAY!!! They have very crappy cars and "Unfortunately" I was/am a victim. Active duty military this company thrives off of ripping us off. They will tell you what you want to hear just to get that Navy Federal/USAA endorsed draft in their hands. If you don't believe me, read the other posts and/or take the car to an independent mechanic.

I bought a 2007 BMW from these Clowns in November; they made promises that the car was great and still under BMW warranty. While looking over the car, I noticed an oil leak and a salesman told me that they had just repaired the valve cover gasket and would put it back in the shop to ensure it was taking care. Needless to say it was more than the valve cover gasket that was leaking. I took the car back several times only to hear fast talk and lies. After $2900 of repairs from my independent mechanic the car is in decent shape but is not near worth the $20,000 I paid for it.  
Ashanti (the owner/manager) and the old guy will make the deal sound sweet but don't trust them. 5 of 6 of their cars are crap!!! Don't take my word for it, check w/ the legal office as this company is soon to be on the military black list.

Attention!!! Do not trust this dealership at all. They sold me a mini Cooper and also bought the warranty thinking that I'd be covering myself in the event of any major mechanical issues. Very similar to the gentleman who left his review about his experience with his Mini Cooper, they ended up dropping the coverage that they have promised to deliver. The dealership does not return my calls or emails but every time I call they keep telling me that the manager is not available and that he will be calling me back the next day. I have almost $2000 in repairs, and dealership is not willing to help me. They are crooks and the insurance that they're selling you are also crooks nothing truly is covered everything is all in the FinePrint that they don't disclose. Do yourself a favor and do not do business with them. I am in the process of taking them to court! THIS IS NOT A REPUTABLE DEALERSHIP BEWARE!

I can only reinforce the previous reviews. I had the most unprofessional and unbelievable experience here. The car they tried to sell me had a cracked water pump, despite having been "checked by our mechanic". There was antifreeze dripping on the ground, that they must have know about and cleaned up - after 1/2 hr. of sitting still at a mechanic (that I paid for separately), there was about a cup full. After bringing the car back, they told me it was only a $120 fix (despite having no idea of how they would be able to get to the pump without moving the engine) and that they would fix it. The DVD player also did not work that they "had no idea" about. These guys make your stereotypical used car salesmen look like angels.

Wish I had seen this first review. You want to read a review of why you shouldn't buy from here? Well, here it is.

So, I'm a honorably discharged Marine and Afghanistan veteran (they say they cater to military members which is what sold me in the end), my old vehicle got ram rodded by a drunk driver my 3rd day of living in San Diego, pretty big set back in the long run, but I had money to purchase a car without a loan so it worked out in terms of looking for vehicles. I'm basically just a regular dude put in a crappy situation.

After days upon days of looking for vehicles, I came across Autobahn, which had vehicles in my price range ($13-17k) and found another Lincoln Navigator (my fault for being an idiot and wanting another one of these) on their lot. They had it marked at 15k, a few thousand over KBB but it had nice rims, upgraded speakers, TV's in the headrests, etc. It seemed like a good deal, and there was minor exterior problems, engine looked clean, sounded good, ran well. So, I lowballed them a bit at first, and worked them down to 13.9k, now this is when things get retarded - I gave them $1k to secure the deal, and that night I went home and started looking for other Navi's of the the same year and I FIND THE CAR THEY ARE SELLING FOR 8K!!! Posted 2 weeks earlier!!! I feel really stupid, but I'll continue.

So anyway, I called them on it and they insisted that a 3rd party site spams craigslist without knowing actual prices, so after they calmed me down they had me come in and sign a waiver saying I knew that was the case. But, then they started telling me they had a bunch of "work" done to it..... Oh dear Jesus did they take me on a run for my money, the past 3 months I've owned this $14k decoration it has sporadically shut off at lights, turned off while backing up, makes this crazy beeping noise when going certain RPM's and I've had to invest about $1k without addressing those issues.

They also put on a show - having the owner come in and pretend to yell at the dealer for selling me the car so cheap. What a bunch of f'ing POS.

So, I'll make it clear and basically do a rundown for those who hate reading life learning stories:

1. Don't EVER buy from Autobaun.
2. They enjoy ripping off active military and veterans.
3. They lie.
4. They sell vehicles that might potentially get you killed.
5. They will do or say anything to get you to buy from them.
6. Sleezy ass place.

If any current military members are reading this, I suggest you get this place put on a black list for your unit/company etc. I know we had that sort of thing for crappy auto sales places when I was stationed in 2-9. Honestly, they took advantage of knowing I was a veteran and saying that most of their customers are military and repeat business, at the time there was no Yelp profile for this company.

Now I'm stuck with a $14k car worth about $5k with about $2-4k in repairs, not including the paint job I need since they sprayed some sort of concealment spray on the outside that has since worn off. I've dealt with some pretty crappy people in my day, but nothing along the lines of this debauchery.

In the end, I guess I'm sort of to blame, but I really wish this company had a Yelp profile or something along those lines when I went to purchase.

DO NOT TRUST AUTOBAUN, this car dealership is not a good place to do business.  They sold me a Mini Cooper with 49,000 miles that had been poorly maintained.  Although they claimed the car was in excellent condition and fully inspected, it broke down within 3,000 miles of my purchase and the turbo blew out.  Mini of San Diego informed me that the car had pre-existing problems and sludge buildup in the engine from poor maintenance. The extended warranty that Autobaun sold me on the vehicle denied my claim 3 times before finally agreeing to pay a portion of the $3400 repair bill.  I'm left with an additional $1000 out of pocket to repair a car that I purchased 3 months ago!!!  Lastly, the warranty they sold me was not the one that was promised during the sales process, they did a bait and switch to a lower quality warranty plan.  Fi, when I went back to Autobaun for assistance, the finance manager told me that they have no way of knowing that I didn't harm the car myself.  They are denying all responsbility for selling a bad car and are arrogant and rude when asked for help in fixing their blunder.  DO NOT TRUST AUTOBAUN!   nally
