Wow! I am shocked! Best service I have ever had! Sam and Jalal were fantastic and they gave me their full attention and helped me find the car that I wanted. Thank you to Rose Auto Sales for being the best dealer that I could ever buy a car from! Definetly coming again for a future purchase. Purchased a 2008 Mercedes-Benz S550 AMG.

First of all the 5 star reviews are from these guys they are scammers. The owner is from a local Iraqi community that has friends that own other businesses. They make other accounts for their yelp reviews. I have found links to these accounts to some rather unscrupulous tow companies and dry cleaning. I am a Private INVESTIGATOR. The owner Sam said that in order to get me a loan for a $9,000 vehicle I would have to pay $3,000 down and $428 a month for 24 months. Scam loan practices if you look at it. He charges a 100% loan rate. This investigation was for the better business bureau and hopefully we shut these people down.

My husband and I just bought a beautiful black Jaguar xj8 from this place. First I want to thank Jalal and his entire team for the exceptional service and attention they gave us from the very beginning. The entire staff including mechanics are extremely helpful, honest and good people. I do not usually write reviews or recommend businesses too often unless I have been really WOW'd by a service, but I recommend anyone and everyone to come see this place, aside from the great experience, these guys are very careful with the selection in vehicles they have in stock.
°°°Jalal: Thank you and your entire crew for all your help! Best experience we have EVER had with a dealer°°°

I bought a car here an the radiator died about 3 days later. They said they would give me the good buddy deal at their mechanic. I went there and it was about $60 less than the dealership, so I chose to go to the dealership. They offered zero help or no explanations really. I know its a used car but it wasn't a very friendly exit. Now looking back I'm sure the car was already broke I just didn't know it. I should have had it checked out first which is my suggestion to anyone buying a used vehicle in this town. These guys are like school in summer..." no class "

I will definitely not buy here again and I buy about 1 car every 2 years.

First time buyer of cars and these guys are pretty good. Sam gave me a good deal and he fought for me, too. They offered to let me take the BMW 328xi on a test drive and he answered all my questions. The car had a few messed up things with it and didn't come with floor mats, but he told me that when I go back for my plates that he'll hook me up with BMW floor mats (we'll see how that goes). However, Sam knows his cars. After I bought the car, I took it to get an inspection (bad decision on my part). And Pep Boys told me that I needed new shocks on the car. A total of approximately 800 bucks. Kind of upset initially, but i'm not the one to whine and moan. Overall, the people there are pretty cool and efficient. And overall, I am happy with my purchase. Thanks, Rose! 3 stars because I'm salty about the shock replacement.

These guys are awesome. They went the extra mile for me to insure I was happy with my purchase. They fulfilled all my requests regarding the car and took care of it in a timely matter. I would definitely do business again. Thanks again Rose Auto Sale!

Jalal and the crew are extremely respectful and understanding, despite what my credit was, they assisted me in my dream car! Love there selection of cars and I would definitely be back.

This dealership is honest and loyal compare to others I've been to. Before and after purchasing my car, I've been assisted with great respect and straight forward answers.

Salesman are not on your case like other dealerships I went to. They give you space and are knowledgeable about their beautiful cars.

You have to check it out yourself and be the judge! :)

Jalal and Rose Auto sales saved my ass!

I was looking around for a car and continually was experiencing stress and aggravation when it came down to the money.

Jalal made my entire experience a breeze and totally stress free.

In spite of my credit and my income, he was able to get me in a new car.

Thank you Rose!

$20,000 IN MAINTENANCE ON THE CAR I BOUGHT HERE 2 YRS AGO! Single worst car experience of my life. I purchased a 2005 BMW 645ci from Rose less than 2yrs ago. It had around 65k miles and now has about 100k. I spent $7700 on non-routine maintenance in the first year and now it requires about $12,000 (yes that's thousand) of work. I BABY this car and drive it less than 10 miles a day. I change the oil regularly. So far the cooling system, the electrical system, the emission system and the driveline have all completely failed. So, a $100k car (new) with 100k miles....$21000 maintenance in the 2yrs since I bought it from Rose Auto. I could have bought a brand new X6 and saved money with a $1500/mo car payment. I will never buy a BMW again and I especially won't buy from Rose Auto.

I'm really surprised to see the reviews that others have posted...
When I first came to the Rose I noticed that they had a small lot with a small office, which sort of gave me a an uneasy feeling at first, but that all went away when I started looking at their cars. All the cars seemed to be in great pristine condition. One thing I'd like to mention about myself is that I absolutely hate dealing with car salesman and the schemes they try and pull to sell you a car. At Rose, I didn't feel pressured or feel like they were trying to pull a fast one on me. I truly felt like they took care of me and gave me a very reasonable price for my Volvo S40. They had even promised to buff out a few scratches that I had noticed and go the extra mile to get it completely detailed free of charge the following week that I bought it. They showed me the Carfax and history of the car just to give me piece of mind that it was in fact a one owner car. From my experience, I don't believe they are a step below 5 stars due to the professionalism, attention to detail, and truthfulness that I encountered. For me to have the ability to drive off of their lot with a smile to ear to ear knowing that the deal that I had just received would go unmatched, was a very good feeling! Thank you Rose Auto Sales, keep up the good work.

Bought two cars from them already and had a great experience with both. I always made sure I got both cars checked with a mechanic befofe hand and any work that  was outstanding they would fix before I bought.

First car I got was a Benz : great shape no probs, sold to a private buyer.

A year 1/2 later I bought a Landrover: great shape, beautiful inside and out, and only needed a wheel-allignment and new thermostat. All were promised to be fixed,on them, and The owner followes through 100 % on his word.

Not the cheapest dealer but also not expensive. Always mid-range and fair priced.

Over all a great experience and good cars for the price.

Remember every dealer has it's cars that don't always work out. As lons as they follow through and try and fix the problem then I don't see why it's so bad.

I bought a BMW from them and had a poor experience.  The sale part of the experience was fine, they were friendly, allowed me to test drive as much as I wanted, told me everything was fine on the car.  Later come to find out many things were not included that they did not mention (extra key = $200, alarm =$300).  Back light was going out (electrical problem).  I later took it to my mechanic (after the 30 day warranty) and had $1500 worth of repairs to get it into shape.  They took almost 3 months to give me the license plate (and additional money from the registration I paid).  They waited until I came in to request the money and license plate.  I would suggest if you consider buying from them, you take it to your own mechanic, very much worth the $120 inspection fee (that I should have spent) to prevent thousands in later expenses and ask about all the details.

The worst dealership I have ever dealt with. First of all, I traded in my 2001 Accord coupe in flawless condition and low miles for a 2003 Jaguar S type. They ran my credit 12 times without me knowing just so I could get approved which made no sense because I had a 720 credit rating. I found out through remax that 75 percent of the Jag was repainted and the Jag dealers said that the car needed a lot of mechanic work.

I left my cell phone at the dealer and they didnt even bother to tell me at first, I called for it and they said they found nothing then later saying that they found it. they returned it because it was password protected and they couldnt get into it, they even took off the protective screen. I asked them if they could help me get some of the mechanical work done throught my warranty and they said I didnt have warranty. I asked him to double check that information and he said that he did. I went home through some paper work and found out that I did have a months worth of warranty left, brought it to his attention and he didnt apologize, he just sent me to this alley where his mechanic was.

They basically did a horrible job and the car leaked all week. They said they would fix it but for an insane amount, and I called Jag and they were willing to do it for much cheaper, The owner kept getting anxious every time I told him I was going to take it to the Jag dealer. Anyways, I asked for my money back or I would file a lawsuit because he put me in a dangerous car that was falling apart, he replied "no" and "f-you" I was shocked. There was nothing more I could do. I was stuck with it, it blew a major head gasket that cost 2000 to fix, althought rose told me there was a new one in it, and 7 months laster after that, It broke down, Galpin Jag told me the car had multiple issues. Rose auto sales lied about the paint job, the condition, the warranty, my phone, everything, It was the worst week ever.

As far as my Honda went, they told me they sold it to a female cousin, her first. But I saw it at a tent sale 2 weeks later, I knew my car, every inch of it, so they even lied to me about that, for no reason at all. It was weird, so I tell you guys, this place is horrible, go to remax, or anywhere professional, because these rinky dinky dealerships will pretty much screw you over

J S. | 2010-06-01

Not a horrible experience but expect them to gouge you any way possible with additional expenses.  Anything they say MAY be more expensive (registration for instance) will be dramatically more expensive. They got me this time, don't let them get you.
