Well, what can I say. Probably not enough great things for this company. My credit union hooked me up with Chris Wedlake at New Cars and the rest went smooth as it gets. I had a beautiful F150 with very low miles and I needed to sell quickly. Chris set up the appointment with the owner, Kevin Watkins.  Mr. Watkins looked the vehicle over and bought the truck at the price I was hoping to get. This group has the highest integrity and are true gentlemen. Buy or sell with trust and confidence with this company.

Chris made the whole car buying experience effortless and easy.  In just a matter of a few days we had the make, model, and even color (interior and exterior) I was looking for and delivered.  Also found financing that beat what we had set up and saved us lots of $$$.  Chris was great and we would highly recommend!

Most amazing car buying experience ever!  Diego went above and beyond on multiple occasions to make sure everything went as smooth as possible.

We had the most fantastic car buying experience with Chris at New Cars, Inc.  Stopped by my credit union and we were looking at buying a new car and they recommended New Cars, Inc.  My husband and I were looking at Dealers and one call to Chris with the list of things we wanted and the price we wanted to pay and he called us back within that day and he had our car.  By the next day we were driving away with our new car.  There was such a painless experience.  I would definitely recommend Chris and New Cars Inc.

New Cars Inc (NCI) makes car shopping a breeze! I love that all you have to do is tell them what you are looking for and they will not only find it for you, but get it at the best price possible! They even take care of the DMV paperwork for you. That's right - they get you out of a trip to the DMV! We submitted our request for NCI's help in finding our car late Thursday afternoon. By mid-morning on Friday we were contacted by Mario - he was amazing! He understood that we wanted to get our new car before the Columbus Day holiday (banks would be closed Monday) and assured us that he would do his very best. He did not disappoint! He found exactly what we were looking for with the OTD price just under our desired price point within HOURS. He even helped with getting our credit union to get things lined up on their end before the day was through! Mario was also very attentive and answered all of our questions with patience and kindness. If all of NCI's reps are as great as Mario, you can't go wrong! They offer - and deliver - convenience, cash savings, time savings (no haggling with dealerships or waiting at the DMV), and just an overall wonderful car-buying experience. I highly recommend New Cars Inc and will absolutely refer anyone and everyone wanting to buy a new car to them!

New Cars Inc. has been the best car dealership experience I have had since I started for the search of a new car. They took car of me through out the whole process and kept it clean simple and straight forward. Mario was such a super helpful and also gave me great customer service experience. He helped me sell my trade in high so I can pay super low on my payments for my new Mazda I purchased.
Not only did he walk me through the process step by step but  also gave me great advise on ways to maintain my new car.

This dealership was the nicest and most caring dealership I have ever been and also gave great rates, prices, customer service, and made me super happy with my new car :) I Definitely recommend Mario he's super honest and fair when it comes to purchasing a car

We recently bought a 2011 Ford Edge from Newcarsinc. From the very beginning we knew we were at a great place. Our salesman, Efrain Morales was great. There was no pressure to buy, he allowed my wife and I time to make a decision without pushing us. The usually pain staking process of paperwork was a breeze !!!  If you are a credit union member as we are, the process is even smoother, they partner with most SD County Credit unions. If you are looking for a new or used car, I would Highly recommend Newcarsinc, And be sure to see E. Morales, Great guy !

We recently bought a 2011 Lexus Rx350 fom New Cars Inc.  We had wanted to try them before but old habits took us to the dealer..  
We were very impressed with the whole process.  We told them what we were looking for/how much we wanted to pay//color and low mileage.  Within a week they found our car.  It was great and had more features on it then we had requested.  We also traded in our 2009 Lexus and they gave us top dollar.  They did everything for us.  They even delivered our car to our house to do all the paperwork.

We would definetly recommend them to anyone who wants a good experience when buying a car.

Thanks to Chris, Miles, Barbara and especially the owner Kevin.

We were referred to New Cars Inc. by our credit union.  Efrain listened to exactly what we were looking for and found it within 24 hours. A 2011 Toyota Prius package#4.  He had the car shipped to San Diego at no cost to us. He let us test drive it without any pressure to buy. Once we decided to take it,  the process was extremely smooth. He had already prepared the paperwork and it took less than 30 minutes.  We already had our loan approved and that probably helped.  Thanks Efrain! We'll definitely recommend folks your way. You saved us a ton of time!

I bought my car and service contract from New Cars Inc (NCI) in La Mesa. When it needed a covered repair, and I lived more than 70 miles away, I was enticed away from my local mechanic (NCI said it was too expensive) by an offer to allow NCI to "take care" of the alignment that was needed after all four struts were replaced. I paid for two and two were covered. The cost was nearly $600. Shortly after the work done by 5 Star, my two front tires with 4,000 miles wear and only 6 months old were worn bald on the insides. I returned the car to 5 Star as instructed by NCI. It looked like he lived in the shop. It was very unprofessional and the mechanic told me that he didn't do an industry standard alignment but did a toe alignment instead. NCI argued that the tires were probably at fault or that the scrapes to the sides of my car probably caused the frame to be bent. I took it to the dealer and found that the struts were in worse shape than when they were suppose to have been replaced. They were now torn, a condition that hadn't existed before they supposedly were replaced. Of course there was no frame damage and Discount Tire paid for an alignment just to be nice ($48) but also to verify that there was nothing wrong with the tires. I lived too far and was very ill at the time, as well as in financial hardship, so I could not take NCI to small claims in time. I do not recommend 5 Star Automotive Center or New Cars Inc. My car is ruined and I cannot afford the $1200 to have it repaired plus the cost of two new tired. I buy one used tire at a time to get by and drive my car less than 5,000 miles a year now. I'm very unhappy and there's nothing I can do but write this review.

If you're thinking about trying Carmax to sell your car, go here instead. Better offers and great service.

As promised, here is the update on my ordeal with "New Cars Inc.".  
I am more than happy to update that "New Cars Inc." went out of their way to make things right for me and my family. Although I stand by what I mentioned before regarding the idea that a better line of communication was needed between "CCCU" and "New Cars Inc.", I did appreciate Mr. Kevin Watkins (CEO/President for NCI) for taking the time to contact me to extend his apologies and also sincerely believed his explanation for the breakdown in the unfortunate line of events. Mr. Watkins personally contacted me and informed me that our initial agreement would be honored and that our $1300 would be refunded.  Knowing what I know now regarding the great lengths that a company, such as "New Cars Inc.", is willing to go through to make things right for a customer; makes me feel very happy to have purchased my first family vehicle from them and would truly recommend this business as an option to anyone looking to buy a car. Many businesses out there only say that the customer comes first but really do not mean or show it, this was definitely NOT the case at "New Cars Inc.".  

Thank you "New Cars Inc." and Mr. Kevin Watkins for making things right for me and my family.

I was referred to New Cars, Inc. after I applied to California Coast Credit Union for a car loan.  I was called back shortly after by Rob, a sales rep.  Right away, I felt comfortable with Rob.  He put a lot of my fears at ease and made our whole transaction so simple, easy, fast and thorough.  He is extremely personable and knowledgeable. Even when the loan fell through with California Coast, Rob assured me that he was confident we could still make it work with another finance company and we did.  I got a 2009 Ford Escape with everything I had in my mind that I wanted.  Even the color blue.  He was able to find a lender who provided me with a comfortable down payment and monthly payment.  And for only a few dollars more, I purchased an additional four year extended warranty.  The peace of mind that gives me was worth the few extra bucks.   I was so nervous to try to do this all my own, put Rob made me feel very relaxed the whole way through.  I wouldn't hesitate to refer my friends and family to him because I know he will provide them with first class treatment. Thanks again Rob.  You rock!

I had a great interaction with New Cars Inc.  I was looking for a specific motorcycle, and while they don't typically deal in 2-wheel vehicles, they had one on their lot that was exactly what I was looking for.  They made the transaction easy, and even with a few snags on my end - I was on my way with a new Harley in less than 24 hours of stepping foot on their lot.  Very professional, and worked with me to get where I needed to be.  

I'd definitely recommend working with Josh and Kevin in the future, and will go back to them when it's time to buy a new car.

I had a really good experience with New Cars Inc.  I heard of this company through my credit union and they - or more specifically CHRIS - did a great job locating my hard-to-find car, a VW Golf.  I was SO specific with what I wanted, and Chris delivered - literally!  My credit union is in Murrieta and Chris drove all the way up from San Diego to come and meet me and fill out that paperwork.  Unfortunately, while we were filling out the paperwork, the credit union had a hang up on my loan.  Originally I was going to keep my car, but I ended up having to trade it in to get into the Golf.  Chris was very patient and waited around with me for the couple of hours that it took to get the loan stuff situated.  He even hung out with me AFTER the credit union closed and we were waiting for more guys to come from San Diego to pick up the unexpected trade-in.  CHRIS and the guys from New Cars Inc. went above and beyond to get me into my new car which I am EXTREMELY happy with!  Thanks, guys!!!  =)

The transmission went out on my altima.... Ahhh!! Seriously?!?! even though I bought my car from New Cars a while ago I still called them for advice.. I got a call back from Josh the recon guy... and he told me that nissan extended the warranty to 10 years and 100k... so it was covered! I had no idea..... It was great of him to look into it for me... Saved me a lot of $$... I don't think I'll buy another Nissan.. but I'll still use New cars the next time I want a car (hopefully I won't need one anytime soon)

Harold P. | 2012-05-24

The manager contacted me and appologized for the way I was treated.  He agreed
to reinburse me for a new key and key alarm, a transmission service and he
supplied me with new factory floor mats.

Had a great experience with New Cars Inc. and would recommend them for anyone looking to purchase a car.  When I first entered the lot, they let me take the car for a test drive without any sales rep. I found their trusting approach a welcome change from having a sales rep talk up various features as opposed to letting me listen, learn and form my own impression of the car.  I found them to be professional; no pressure,  no haggling.

The car was in good shape, and seemed priced well based on my research and experience with other sellers.  When I came back a second time to test drive the vehicle, I noticed it seemed to start slow; they said they would replace the battery, which they did. After some thought, I purchased it in a very simple, straightforward deal.

After I bought the vehicle, I noticed the cruise control was giving me an E-3 error code. My mechanic, who specializes in Toyota's, was unable to repair it as it required a Dealer to recalibrate the system. I notified my sales rep, Rob Spiegel, of the problem, and he assured me they would take care of it. I was skeptical as I didn't think it was covered in the warranty, but  they did take care of it - with no charge to me.  New Cars Inc. had the Dealer recalibrate it. We took the car on a trip to Northern California and it worked great.

I can only speak for myself, but I was very pleased with our purchase, the service and overall experience with New Cars Inc.  Thanks to Rob Spiegel and the entire group at New Cars Inc.

We had a very positive experience with Chris. Being pregnant and a small business owner, my hands are very full. I just simply didn't have the time to look for the new car we needed before the baby arrived. Chris did all the car shopping for us, was able to provide the information we needed to decide between used or new, and found the PERFECT car for us in less than a week. We got a great price on a new car - a price I never would have gotten if I'd just walked into a dealership. It was the smoothest car buying experience of my life. Huge thanks to Chris and New Cars Inc.!!

If you are looking for a great place to buy a car this is it! Ask for Kevin he was so helpful, he found what I was looking for with the best price and very low miles. He had me go to Cal Coast CU they had my loan done the same day and I got my car the following, all of the staff went above and beyond. Tell all  your friends and family, this is a very down to earth company they make you feel like family! 5 stars all the way!!!!

ED G. | 2010-03-12

Met with Diego yesterday to drop off my trade in and pick up and brand New Toyota Sienna. I highly recommend this dealership Diego treated me nice and with respect. I did my loan thru NICU and New Cars INc handled everything smoothly for me..i was in and out of their office in 10 Minutes!!! Now beat that going into a real dealership!!

Michael J. | 2009-11-05

!!!!!!*******Watch Out*******!!!!!!! This place is shady!!!!!! Was looking online for a certain type of car and i found a unbelievable price at this place they offer free carfax so i checked it out and no red flags. I went to go visit the dealership (sorry excuse for one can someone say ghetto) and was met up by a diego. showed me the car let me drive it i was very interested in it afterwards. When i told him the price online he said it was a mistake and he would have to honor it so it was working out to my benefit. Then while discussing the history of the vehicle he said the original owner bought the vehicle from them in san diego.. no big deal right? wrong when i went home and checked the car fax again it said the car was purchased in Pasadena. The price allow made me force my self to ignore this inconsistency. Now on to why the personnel at this dealership have no morals. I was told i would have to sign a contract before the car could be held i understand that to a certain point i gave diego my loan officer's number 2 days ago letting him know that i would be back on friday to buy the car, today is thursday. He calls me today and tells me that the car has already been sold. If this were a reputable dealer they would have called me when they got the second offer letting me know that it was about to be sold. Morale of the story dont trust this place dont buy a car here spend the extra hundred or thousand dollars to get a certified vehicle from a real dealership.
