Max is the exception to the clich├ęd used car salesman: he is honest and honorable and true to his word.
I found a great car in my price range and the whole transaction was hassle-free, upfront and easy. It was a pleasure to do business with Max, and I highly recommend his business.

About 3 months ago I purchased a 2007 Audi A4. Loved the car so I had my heart set on it right away. On the lot the owner said the price was little over 11k, however after doing some research I realized that the car was listed on the dealers website as well as craigslist for $9,990. Good thing I checked. The owner honored the online price.
After driving it off the lot I realized the car had expired plates instead of dealer plates so obviously I got pulled over every two days for two weeks till I went to pick up my updated registration. When putting on new tags on the car I realized they are only good for about another 3.5 months ... The hell? I just paid over $300 in registration and my tags expire in 3 months? The owner said that he had to pay for last years registration while the car was sitting in the lot. I don't understand why I'm responsible for paying registration for when I didn't even own the vehicle. After arguing with him for a decent 15 minutes he gave me back like $70 from the registration fee.
Two months later all sorts of engine lights went on, after taking the car for full diagnostic i come to find out that I pretty much bought a lemon from this guy, the mechanics said that all these issues must have been there before I got the car but didn't become apparent till I dive it for a bit. The oil was mixing with the coolant which led me to have to replace the head gasket, the radiator and the coolant tank all together for a whopping $1500 in repairs.
AVOID BUYING YOUR CAR FROM THERE AT ALL COST unless you want to spend the next year repairing hidden damages undisclosed to you at purchase. I feel ripped off.

Just recently purchased a 2006 Lexus GS300 for here and let tell you my experience was great. Max who is the owner was awesome help me out and took care of me beginning to end to make my car buying experience the best I've ever had. No-hassles just straight to the point and at a great price. Definitely will recommend to my friends and family.

Overall a very easy, reasonable way to purchase a used car. The car I purchased had some inconvenient repairs, but the transmission and engine are great. It is a small dealership and we didn't feel pressured. It was fairly up front, except I think makeup was used to cover the cracks in the leather seats. I would definitely recommend if you are looking for a fairly priced used car.

Couldn't ask for a better car buying experience, honestly. The dealership is run by a single guy, he doesn't put any pressure on you which is unusual of used car dealerships. I bought a vehicle in pretty good condition and got a really good deal on it. At such a reasonable price I was expecting something wrong with the car but I was wrong. I've had the car for a couple of weeks now with absolutely nothing wrong mechanically, it runs perfectly. One of the best investments I've made was buying a car from this place. Believe me I've bought other used cars from other places and they were not only unreasonably priced but they had issues. I am completely satisfied with my vehicle purchase and I will undoubtedly buy my next car here.
