Reviews on Ferrante & Son Sales & Leasing

That was--BY FAR--the best car buying experience I've ever had. John and his staff are personable and professional. From the first pleasant phone call to the quick, easy, hassle-free signing, John could not have made things any better for us. He found our desired car quickly, found us a great deal on the auto loan, and made our trade-in so very simple. You've got a customer for life. Thank you!

John Ferrante sold us our pre-owned 2010 Qudi Q5 in November 2014, and it's been a couple of great months since.  We've really enjoyed this luxury SUV, which even though it was pre-owned was in great condition.  

It was a pleasure working with John from the first phone call, to meeting him in person and hearing about his business philosophy, to getting to test-drive the car  We drove away as owners the very next day.  He even found us a great deal on the auto loan.  

John - perhaps in a few years, when I'm ready, you could help me find the perfect pre-owned Porsche?  I've only been waiting about forty years.

John is a great guy and he will go above and beyond to help you find the right car. Him and his staff are very professional and I will recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a great car at an unbeatable price...

I just purchased my new vehicle from John. This was my first experience with Ferrante and Son. Every part of the experience was a pleasure. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. I shared with John what I needed and wanted and he found the perfect match for me. No hassles, no pressure, no stress. So much better than going to a car dealership. Trustworthy, honest, and high level of integrity! Thank you!!!

We bought a 2010 GMC Sierra Denali from John and have been extremely happy with our experience.  We were on a bay-area road trip to look at several Denali's over the weekend and were a little disappointed at what we had seen.  Then we came across the one at John's place as our last stop, and we were really impressed.  Even though they were closed on Sunday he still replied to my email inquiry that evening and said the truck would be ready for us in the morning.  He was up front right off the bat about any issues, pointing out a minor dent in the back.  He was willing to discount the price significantly so we could get it fixed since he knew we didn't live in the bay area.  When we noticed the back-up camera wasn't working, he immediately sent the truck to "his guy" down the street who fixed it within the hour.  The truck was very clean and well-detailed; he clearly chooses nice vehicles and cares about what he sells.  He was willing to work with us and never became the hard negotiator that we usually expect from a car dealer.  As long as you don't mind listening to a few "stories" from his many years in the business, this is a great place to go to avoid the typical big dealers.  In the future, instead of being the last place we look, this will be the first place we start!

I first met with John about a year and a half ago.  We weren't sure what we wanted, and ended up getting a new car from a dealer.  Never loved it.  Called John, he had a lease return sitting on his lot that was a top of the line, significantly under kbb, and more car than we wanted new --  cheaper!  We snagged it!  Love our Pilot.  Thanks John!  

Oh, and for anyone complaining about bad customer service, go check out a Ford dealership, will you, please?   Once I told John I was interested in the car, it was mine until I sd otherwise.  It only took a couple days to sell my previous car, but it was nice to know the Pilot wasn't going to be sold out from under me.  All told with my and my wife's schedules, it was a week after we drove it, and two weeks after John and I first talked till we took possession of the Pilot.  Which, did I mention?  We love!!!

Didn't buy a car (yet) because of a current auto-contract but I'm impressed with my few conversations with John.  This gentleman is the real deal, he even told me a little secret about dealer-suggested (or enforced!) warranties and GAP (it's not necessary and cannot be forced upon anyone, not even by the Finance companies).  So I visited my dealer in question the very next day to cancel all the warranties they sold me, $4000 worth so my loan principal will drop by that amount.  

I will definitely be going to Ferrante & Sons for my next car and will recommend them to anyone in the market for a new(er) car.

Thanks, John!

I had one of the best car buying experiences ever !  Told John I was looking for a small economical and very cheap car and within a week he had informed me that he had one that he took in on trade. John had it checked out by a very reputable mechanic and would not let me test drive it until he was sure it was safe and mechanically sound. The purchase process was so smooth, he had all the paperwork ready to go when I got there ,and with just a few signatures, I was the proud owner ! I am loving my car and loving the experience I had. I will be using John and letting all my friends know about his fabulous operation !

Over the past 30 years we've bought many cars from Ferrante and Son, new and trade ins.   John's  the best.  Have loved the deals and cars. He's now selling cars to my sons. Just read the yelp from Any G and it makes me sad.  He does get very busy but keep calling, he'll do right by anyone.  It's the only way to go.

4.5 stars?! You got to be kidding me, this has to be a joke.

I am in the market for a used car and saw an ad in craigslist for a mazda 3. It has all the specs that I was looking for so I went ahead and sent an email inquiring about the trade in. I sent this email to info@ferranteandson.com on February 23 and have yet to get a response from them. I decided to call on February 26 at 3:20. The girl who answered said John was in charge of the call and he'll give me a call back. So I waited, and waited and waited. STILL NO RESPONSE. So my man decides to give them a call. He called around 130 today March 4 and the girl told him the same thing, that John will call him back. Well he didn't so he decided to call again before 4pm and lo and behold the car is SOLD. Apparently he was apologetic and such but well you better be. You wasted over a week of my time on a car that was sold. He also said he'll look into it but hey if you're reading this I just gave you all the facts, either your girl is not doing her job, you are not doing your job, or both. Either way they lost a customer. I think I give up on smaller dealerships, or at least this one FORSURE. What you save on money, you will lose in time.

Sir you are doing business all wrong. Horrible and I mean HORRIBLE customer service.

My family has purchased almost all of our cars from Ferrante and Son for as long as I can remember. I have personally purchased two cars sight unseen from John. I cannot speak highly enough about him. You will LOVE your experience working with them. John always has time to speak with me when I call or stop by. I know he is a busy guy but he loves people and will find time for you. You will never regret buying a car from John.

Full endorsement!!! Feel free to give me a call if you want.

Absolutely amazing.  We bought a 2006 Honda Odyssey John had taken as a trade-in last Thursday.  Before that, the high bar in my expectations regarding buying a car were for the process to be painless, and in buying perhaps a half dozen cars in 20 years, not once was it even "painless".  John changed all that - it was actually fun to buy a car from John.  From the moment we walked in the door we were surprised.

John doesn't treat you like a customer, he treats you like a long-time neighbor.  I wish more people handled business the way John does - like an interaction between kind, considerate, thoughtful human beings.

When I need to buy another car, I will go out of my way to buy it from John Ferrante.

I can't say enough about how overjoyed I am with my experience working with John.  I always dread buying a car due to the negotiations and questioning whether you really need the "extras".  I am positive that John and I spoke for nearly 2 hours, and surprisingly enough, only a fraction of the time was spent discussing the car.   John was a complete joy to work with, and his honesty and candor was above and beyond anything I have ever experienced in this industry.

I purchased a used vehicle he took back as a trade from an existing customer.  The car was in even better condition than he explained to me over the phone.  He went above and beyond to make sure it was in tip top condition.  The price was more than competitive, and he even handled trading in my existing car for more than any other dealer would have offered.  He handled all the financing,  DMV registration and transfer of ownership without hassle or stress.

I have been raving about my superb experience to all my friends and family and figured I would give back and let anyone know who is looking at Yelp reviews, that you will not regret your decision to work with John Ferrante for your next car purchase.  Thank you for everything John, I couldn't be happier!

Definitely a different experience compared to other dealerships, and that's a good thing. John is awesome. He patiently went through the whole process with me. It was a very pleasant experience. I highly recommend this place. Thanks for everything, John!

My family (mom, dad and grandma) all buy their cars from John.  I just traded in my 09' Corolla for a fabulous 11' Honda Accord - the car I really wanted.  John made the process easy. Got an incredible deal and loan apr! He will really work in your best interest and get you a better deal (trade-in and buying cost) than a dealership. I will continue to buy all of my future vehicles from John.

John has my business . Dealing with him is easy and quick. His support staff awesome.

lorraine r. | 2009-08-24

I contacted John a few months ago to sell my car and buy another. He got all biblical on me about taking care of widows. I e-mailed him twice more to get things moving but never heard from him again.

John Ferrante seems to be the most trustworthy broker in the automotive business.  I bought a 2008 Honda Element from him, and have no complaints.  I LOVE the car, and i love the experience I had while purchasing it.  He makes it easy to buy a car.  He also hooked me up with a great deal!

I'll be buying the rest of my cars from John Ferrante until he shuts his business down (which hopefully won't be for a while).
