In one word "CROOKS"!

Do not make the same mistake I did. I purchased a 2006 Porsche Cayanne and had engine problems after a few days and later found out they showed me an inaccurate Carfax report stating the SUV had never been in an accident. Come to find out the SUV was in 4 accidents after I  did my research. I called and talked to David regarding my local Porsche dealer's findings regarding the damaged engine and he said there was nothing wrong with the SUV when he sold it  to me, then got angry and hung up in my face. Long story short, stay away from this horrible dealership.These are bad guys. Sheep in wolves clothing.  

Buyers beware!

Overall - Good Value.  Lots of Choice.  Transparency.  I would recommend them to anyone.  

I bought a 2010 BMW 328i convertible here in October 2010.  Yes - it had a salvage title.. but Dave was completely transparent about that right from the start - and even showed me the photos from the accident the car was in.  (I get the impression they buy most of their cars at auction, so they have all the photos.)   NOBODY was trying to hide that fact.

The price was very fair.  Not 'fire sale giving them away', but probably a few hundred bucks less than I expected.  The car had been VERY well rebuilt.  In fact that afternoon I took it to a mechanic who put it up on the lift and we went through it.  The repair work was very well done, and the replacement parts all of high quality.

The transaction was smooth - he took a check without my having to go to the bank and pay for a certified check (which really irritated me about buying new)...and about 3 weeks later the license plate and the stickers arrived in the mail - exactly as promised.

Now, there were a few minor things about the car that needed a bit of work after the purchase (washer fluid pump sensor... and 1 or 2 other things...)  I brought the car in a month or two later and he fixed them for me..  He even found the 2nd key for the car and held onto it until I came back to their place.  
About a week after the repair, Dave called back and checked to see if everything was OK.  

They have a lot that is about half "luxury cars" - 3-10 year old Mercedes, BMW and Audi (again - mostly salvage titles, but well built), and the other half are run-of-the-mill perfectly routine cars that they saw value in.  

I had my heart set on a convertible BMW... but I didn't want to pay $30k for it.  I got what I wanted... and I feel like I got full value for my money.  

I'd recommend them to anyone who is looking for a good deal.  Recognize that this is a 'value oriented shop'.  If you want a fancy cup of coffee from the dealer, a parts department that sells sweatshirts with the BMW logo on them, and a bunch of sales guys in suits this isn't the place for you.  But if you want to save a couple grand on a semi-luxury car... and you know exactly what you want... I would definitely recommend them.    They certainly treated me fair.

After shopping around the area with other dealer I drove into DMG Auto Gallery. I looked around and saw a vehicle I liked. After lookin at the car for a few minutes I was greeted by David. Great guy honest and very forward about his cars told me it had a salvage title and showed me pictures of the repairs. I was amazed and I loved the vehicle and purchased it. It was the easiest purchase I have ever done in and out in 30 minutes. Thank you David for my 2013 Toyota Tacoma I love my truck and I look forward to buying my next one from you. Definitely a good place to look for a good deal.

The only sale salvage car. Customer service sucks we waited 15 min outside and nobody came out to help us.

Called them on a Wednesday interested in seeing a car. I called them at 8:10 pm and asked what time they closed. The sales guy said "8 pm. Oh yeah we're already closed." The next day (Thursday)I called again at 6:55 pm making sure they still had the car I was interested in. They did still have it and again I asked them what time they closed. The answer "7 pm." What? I guess they don't want the business.

Thank baby jeebus for Yelp. I just got my loan from Navy Fed and was ready to go check out a truck from this place. The yelp reviews prompted me to search the VIN online and sure enough, the truck I wanted was a salvaged title even though their ad and website does not mention this anywhere. Shady business practices!

In the past two years I have purchased TWO cars from David at DMG Auto Gallery. I found him to be both ethical, fair and responsive. He conducts business with extraordinary  integrity, not only during the purchase, but afterward as well. Both of my vehicles (purchased over a year apart) have been extremely reliable. David was completely upfront that they had salvage titles and encouraged pre-purchase inspections. He also provided pre-repair photographs and a current Carfax report. After a complete inspection, the only issue the dealership could find with my first vehicle was that it was out of alignment.  David paid for the $100. repair. FIVE months later when my check engine light went on, David has his mechanic inspect it at no charge. The problem was a crack in the gas cap. David promptly replaced the it EVEN THOUGH HE HAD NO OBLIGATION TO DO SO. My experience with David was so positive, that a year later I purchased a SECOND vehicle from him. It was fully inspected by an ASE mechanic and found to need a set of front brake pads. David requested that the repair be made by his ASE mechanic who was less expensive. To save time, I chose to use my mechanic. David offered to split the cost. Today both vehicles are mechanically sound and continue to run like tops. I would refer friends and family to DMG Auto Gallery without hesitation. I am a demanding consumer. Months after my last purchase, I can still report I am completely satisfied with both of my transactions. If you want a road worthy luxury vehicle without a luxury price tag, you can trust DMG to deliver the goods. I have. TWICE.

I'm going to put it out there, if you go to this place after you read my warning, you deserve what you get.  
The two crooks there David and Hasaan should have their business license permanently removed.  I bought a RAV4 from these guys with a clean CARFAX.  I made the second mistake (first was going there) by not getting it inspected by an independent mechanic.  He would have been able to tell me that the vehicle had over $5000 worth of damage underneath the vehicle. I found out about this damage when my wife went to get an oil change at a local mechanic.  They refused to change my oil without first replacing the damaged oil pan.  Well that was only the tip of the iceberg of the damaged parts.  Long story short, we were driving in a dangerous vehicle and brought the piece of junk back.  After much arguing and threats they agreed to take it back, but I lost about $3000 in the process.  

They suck!!!!!!!!

Do not buy a car from these guys!! I did some research on some of the cars and found out that they were salvaged vehicles. When I asked the salesman about the cars and mentioned that they were salvaged he immediately told me to leave. Do your research and google the vin numbers.
