Reviews on Longshot Auto Sales

Evan H. | 2015-04-24

This company is amazing. Not only were they able to give me the absolute lowest price, but they made my decision making so much easier. Had all the answers and was able to make sure I was happy with my deal. They responded in a timely fashion and their website makes car searching so much easier. This is now my go-to place when buying a car.

Monique S. | 2015-04-23

The idea of buying a car was pretty daunting. I read reviews for used car sales all over the South Bay and was pretty dissatisfied until I found Longshot. Jeff literally did EVERYTHING for me from negotiating to putting a loan in order. I had a specific car and budget in mind and they followed through. Definitely would recommend to people in the search.

These guys are impressive!  Longshot auto has helped me with two of my cars.  They went above and beyond in both situations when I really needed someone I could trust, I needed someone who could act quickly, respond and understand my specific needs.  I am a very critical buyer and seller, I am not easy to please.  These guys go all the way to take care of their customers and actually care about quality of work and customer care.  They will be the first and only call I make for my auto needs.  I highly recommend working with Longshot Auto, no need to look any further, make the call reach out to them and they will take great care of you!

I highly recommend purchasing a car off of Longshot Auto Sales, they got me a great deal on my new car! They even purchased my old vehicle, I highly recommend this Auto broker service to all.

I completely agree with the positive reviews below.  I was referred by a family friend and I'm glad I was!  I was looking for a limited edition E series Benz in a specific color and Longshot Auto Sales saved the day!  I was beginning to lose hope in my search, but they came through with the car I was looking for WITH the 2 tone leather interior I wanted!  They are the best!!  Thanks a million!!

Longshot was referred to me by a family friend. I called Jeff for last minute advisement during a new lease agreement and not only did he have specific tips, he also went above & beyond to find ways to save me money. I know by the way he helped me that he would do the same for anyone else who asks for guidance or a specific car as well. Do yourself a favor- use Longshot.  It makes the entire car buying search & negotiations that much easier!!!

Simon K. | 2015-02-21

Very pleasant experience! Jeff helped me get the car that I was looking within my budget with zero hassles. I will deal with them again for all my future car purchases highly recommended.

Jason S. | 2015-02-01

By far the easiest car buying experience I've ever had. Jeff stuck to his word and delivered exactly what I asked. I look forward to doing business again.

Galina L. | 2015-01-24

Very helpful! It felt really great to be able to get answers and help from a trustworthy source. Jeremy was there for me right from the start and took care of everything including taking my old car off my hands. Thank you, guys! You are great!

Wande O. | 2015-01-22

This was a smooth process -- the way car buying should be. Jeff/Jeremy are on top of their game. They arrived at the dealership before we did and coordinated everything with the dealership before I arrived. Once I arrived, they facilitated the process from the test drive through to the financing stage. Jeff/Jeremy understand the value of building a relationship with the customer - this is why I anticipate they'll be in business for a long time and they'll always have my business.

N C. | 2015-01-12

I was looking for a evo which is a rare car to find in good condition for the right price,  I contacted Longshot auto because a friend recommended me to email them.  

Long story short they matched me up with the perfect car and deal , it saved me a ton of time because I had been going dealer to dealer and dealing with alot of non sense sales people and getting the run around.

I'd like to thank both Jeff and Jeremy my sales reps for the time and money you saved me.

Terry H. | 2015-01-06

Longshot Auto Sales is the best car locating company that I have ever dealt with.

I was looking for a specific make and model, a Mercedes 1991 diesel, with the special 224 engine. This engine was known as the million mile Mercedes engine. Anyway, I looked and looked but could never find one.

After talking to the guys at Longshot, they did their research and amazingly, found the car I was looking for. And for a great price too.

It was perfect.

And so, if you need a car, a good car but are frustrated by craigslist and ebay and autotrader, try LONG SHOT.

Great service. Friendly and reliable. Talk to Jeff, he was who I dealt with.

Tina H. | 2014-12-16

For anyone who dreads shopping for a car, new or used, I recommend you contact Longshot Auto Sales. They take the pain out of car buying. Jeff is wonderful to work with! He handles all the details superbly all you have to do is show up and drive off :)
Two thumbs up for Longshot Auto - really

Alyssa G. | 2014-11-13

Buying a car is a very stressful time, but Jeff made it super easy and accommodated my very busy schedule. I was having trouble trying to get financing as I am a student but have great credit and had a large down payment. He worked tirelessly on it and found me my perfect car with approved financing! I traded in my old car and Jeff gave me double $$ what the dealership was going to give me. The day of me buying my new car, Jeff and his partner made me feel like a VIP and were there with me as support! I would definitely recommend using their service to buy a car! They will find you the best deal and work endlessly until you are happy!

Sal L. | 2014-10-11

I would highly recommend Jeff and Long shot auto.He took all the hassles out of buying a car. He did all the haggling for me and got the price I wanted. All I did was go in and sign the papers. This was my first time using a broker but I would do it again the next time I need a car. We are very happy with the process and our new car.

Mona A. | 2014-09-04

Wow! What a difference!. I had a terrible experience with a local dealership, given a  high interest rate because my son was a first time buyer. Ignored for so many days even after so many calls. Once i found Longshotauto and started talking to Jeremy, local dealer finally called back. Too late coz I found Longshotauto.
A first for me to work with a broker but I'm so glad I did. I looked at their website, found the car we want, and went thru their website to pre qualify.  Jeremy answered my texts when I was in the process of signing docs in the dealership and gave advice's over text. I would go back to him for our next cars. Thanks Jeremy for a wonderful car buying experience!

Disclaimer: I'm not in anyway related to any employees of Longshotauto and definitely didn't get paid for the review.

Doreen R. | 2014-07-08

My husband and I were looking to trade in our Passat and get a Honda. We didn't have the best of credit, but after contacting Jeff he assured us that he could help us. I let Jeff know what car I was interested in from his website and that got the ball rolling. Within a few days, we were in our Used Honda Accord. They gave us money for our trade in, and did all the leg work so once we got to the dealer, all we had to do was test drive our car and sign the papers. Very happy with this process and once we finish paying off this car, we plan on using Longshot auto again. Thanks Jeff and Jeremy :)

Liezl C. | 2014-06-02

I definitely recommend the help of Jeff from Longshot Auto Sales. He took our car buying experience at a totally different level. I would rate them more than 5 stars. Jeff, you are the best!!!

Ivan Y. | 2014-04-22

I saw his ads and checked review on yelp, then decided to give it a try. I called Jeff, and he provided lots of information. Since I have clear idea what model of car I need, I ask him to give me a quote on a 2014 new model. He is straight forward, no time wasting. In 10 mins, he found the car (model, interior, color) I want and gave his price. I took the offer and went to local dealer to test drive and competed transition. I purchased a new car in one day without headache. Very good experience.

John W. | 2014-04-08

Jeff made the overall trade-in/purchase process simple and a time savings.
Longshot provided 3 benefits:
1. Act as a 3rd-party to purchase my car for better than trade-in value. Their price falls in the middle between what a dealer would pay for trade-in and what you would get for private-party sale.
2. Car search for the make/model you are looking for. They browse the internet and contact dealers to find what you want. This saves time and they are on it 24/7.
3. They negotiate/arrange the purchase. This saves time and hassle of working with the car dealer.

And they follow-up. The evening after the purchase they followed up to make sure it went smoothly and a week later they followed up to make sure it went smoothly.
They are also making sure the dealer follows up on their promise to get the factory car mats I was promised.

Tim C. | 2014-02-25

My wife and had been looking for the perfect car for our family for the best part of a year, we couldn't find all the the options, the right price and the low mileage we wanted, so we called Jeff at Longshot Auto Sales, with 24 hours he had found 3 choices, we made our decision and picked it up yesterday. It is all we hoped for, my wife is extremely happy with her new car, Happy Wife, Happy Life!
Thanks Jeff, I would not hesitate to recommend family or friends to Longshot if they are in need of purchasing a vehicle in the future.

Kaylee S. | 2013-11-22

I was a little skeptical at first going through a new company. These guys are nothing close to new, they are very well educated on the car buying process and seem to have a lot of experience with getting a good deal. I worked with Jeremy when I decided to buy my Nissan Murano. I had no idea what kind of midsize vehicle I wanted. He really seemed to listen to my wants and needs to help me discover the perfect fit. When I went to meet them, Jeff and Jeremy were very welcoming and made me feel they were truly on my side. Proof is in the pricing. I do not like going into dealerships and dealing with multiple people trying to pressure me into a sale. This was a surprisingly very easy and smooth process and I will definitely be calling them again in the future and will be recommending them to anyone in need of a car. Thank you.

Stephen H. | 2013-10-15

Found Jeff via an ad on craiglist, checked out Yelp and decided to give him a go. Made the whole car buyer experience easy and quick, found a great car, did the haggling over price for me, took my trade off my hands for more than I had been offered, always available on the phone and follows up to make sure that you are happy with the service. Would recommend Jeff and Longshot to anyone.

Caesar M. | 2013-08-05

After looking on the internet thru Edmunds and going to some local dealers we found Longshot thru Craigslist while looking for a new 2013 Highlander.  Jeff handled our negotiations with Captiol Toyota and got us a sweet deal on a brand new one.  He did everything for us.  All we had to do was go down, test drive it and then we signed the papers.  He even was willing to take our trade in and bought our POS 95 Maxima.  This all happened in one day.  After he gave us our quote, we went back online to compare the savings he was getting us which he did.  Great experience. If you're looking for a new or even used car go thru these guys.  You won't be disappointed.

Nicole M. | 2013-08-02

Met Jeff through family friends and decided to give him a call when my efforts to purchase a used car proved too time-consuming and too frustrating. I spent several days pouring over Craigslist, meeting up with sellers and taking prospective cars to my mechanic without finding anything suitable in my price range. I called Jeff, showed him some of the cars and local deals I had found as well as what I could afford given that I would be going to graduate school for the next two years full time. Within 48 hours from my first conversation with Jeff I had a brand new 2013 Toyota Corolla with an amazing lease to own deal. What I really appreciated most about my experience with Longshot is that they take into consideration what you can realistically afford and find the best options and deals for you based on your financial situation in both the short and long term. I learned a lot working with Jeff - he negotiated everything on my behalf and coached me on what to expect at the dealership. I will absolutely use Longshot Auto Sales for any future car purchases and recommend them to family and friends looking for a new/used car. Thanks again guys!

Dylan M. | 2013-07-30

Longshot Auto Sales is the place to go when looking for any car.  A family member recently purchased a Subaru with Jeff's help.  I didn't believe her when she said that buying her car was easy.  I called up Jeff and gave him the models that I was looking at buying or leasing.  He got back to me real fast with quotes and options.  He was very personable and returned all my phone calls, texts and emails right away.  

He found me a great deal on a 2013 Toyota Camry lease.  It was such a great deal that I flew into San Jose and drove the car nearly 500 miles back home!  Jeff talked about all the options with me before we got to the dealership so that the experience in the dealership was quick and easy.  

I love the car and would recommend Long Shot Sales to anyone looking to buy or lease any new or used car.  Jeff has years of experience with cars and will get you the best deal in the industry.  As I drove away, I couldn't believe not only how happy I was with the car, but how easy the experience was!

I'll never get another car without Long Shot Auto Sales!

Jeremy and Jeff have made the typically miserable experience of purchasing a car pleasant and bearable. Jeremy is knowledgeable, customer service oriented, and willing to fight for you to get the best deal. Both Jeremy and Jeff have years of car industry experience and have strategic partnerships with individuals of all ranks in the car industry to help you get the best deal. Their advice is offered to help you make the most informed choice as a consumer and customer. The years of experience between them come through in their excellent customer service, advice, and knowing what it is like to be in the shoes of the buyer. I will never go directly to a dealership nor let any of my friends who are in the market for a car do the same. I will instead refer them to Jeremy and Jeff, who are not only the best car brokers but the best customer advocates as well.
If you are in the market for a car, call Longshot Auto. If your friend, relative, neighbor, co-worker are looking for a car, if you care about them, you will tell them to call Jeremy & Jeff.

Mike T. | 2013-07-11

Got in touch with Jeff from a referral and glad that I did.  He was able to help me navigate the crazy world of car buying.  He is knowledgable, hard working, and very reachable via email, text, phone.  He negotiated a new car discount even when I was told by several dealers that they couldn't budge.  He has awesome connections, honest, and I truly got the impression he was on my side.  Thanks longshot auto!!!

Perla P. | 2013-06-19

I was looking for a 2007 Toyota Tacoma trd sport white 4 doors So I contacted Jeff for a 2006 Toyota Tacoma 4 door trd sport but it was silver and unfortunately they had sold it! but miraculously Jeff found me the perfect truck with all the features that I was looking for, even the color for a great price!!! I really want to thank longshot auto sales for their great service and finding me the perfect truck!!!!

Matt B. | 2013-06-13

I called Jeff at Longshot last fall when I needed a reliable used car for two teenagers to use around town. Jeff quickly found exactly what we needed, a low mileage Toyota Corolla, and at a very reasonable price, well within budget. Comms were outstanding, and I was able to complete the deal while on business out-of-state.
Recently I need edge to unload a car, and of course called Longshot again. As before, Jeff and his partner Jeremy, were reasonable, service oriented, and gave me a square deal. Hassle free too as they agreed to meet me at Fremont BART for my convenience.
I'm 2 for 2 with Longshot. They are honest, reasonable, and easy to work with.  A+ in my book.

Jason S. | 2013-05-25

....Just a few weeks ago, i got my new 2013 Tacoma, thanks to Jeff at Longshot auto.
Coincidentally, my lil bro was in the market for a new car. My bro is particular with what he wanted, down to the color, package and price, I went to Jeff knowing he can get the best deal without a doubt. So i gave Jeff exactly what we were looking for. Coincidentally we sold my bros car so we were ready to buy so i told Jeff, were ready. He worked hard looking for the best deal. Long story short, my bro woke up (actually he didnt sleep much) this morning to a new 2013 Mustang GT in the driveway. Jeff got us a quote and we didnt have to do any haggling work at the dealer.
Jeff thank you so much. Believe it or not, my other bro is next. True story.

Sukradevi I. | 2013-05-21

Best new car purchase ever, it was such an easy transaction that I drove all the way from Sacramento to get the exact car I was searching for and it was still less time than I would have spent at a local dealership.
Jeff and Jeremy are very professional, I'll never buy another car any other way.

Joanne D. | 2013-03-08

We called Jeff Saturday morning, by mid-morning he had found a car for us to look at. The dealership held it for us, right color and options. He negotiated a good price to install custom leather seats. The salesman at the dealership treated us like personal friends of Jeff. We have purchased two cars using Jeff's services and will recommend him to our family and friends. He is very professional and returns calls quickly.

Jessica G. | 2013-02-18

Called Jeremy through an internet ad I saw.  He was professional, nice, and polite.  He referred me to Jeff who went through the entire buying a car process with us.  It was very personal service and Jeff always returned my calls and texts right away.  I had a whole bunch of questions and he went out of his way to find the answers and helped me with communicating with other people involved (finance, sales etc.)  We felt like we had an experienced advocate on our side the whole way through.  We felt no pressure and ended up with a great deal we for sure couldn't have found without Jeff.

Check out the picture I posted of my partner VERY happy next to our new car :)

If you are in the first steps of buying a car, I definitely recommend to call Jeff at Longshot Auto Sales!!!

Miss L. | 2013-02-18

Bought a 2006 gt through them, great service. I didn't really get the best deal I thought but with my credit I wasn't going to be picky. Got the car I always wanted and they were very helpful! Even picked me to pick up my car. If you see a car you like, definitly give them a call!

Jenn H. | 2013-01-03

Just bought a Dodge Charger from Longshot. Jeremy was super helpful, professional and attentive and got me a better deal than anywhere else I looked. He also made sure I got top dollar on my trade-in, about $2000 higher than any other offers I have received. I will definitely be back in the future and will refer my family and friends. I love my new car, thank you Jeremy!

Justine W. | 2012-12-23

I got my dodge neon through them a few weeks ago. Jeremy was a great help though the whole process, made the experience of getting a new car painless and simple. I even got an amazing deal for my trade in. The service is spectacular and Professional. I definitely recommend their services, call them ASAP! You won't be disappointed.

Mary D. | 2012-12-23

Last week I bought a Toyota Prius from Longshot Auto and I have never been so happy with the ease and professional manner that all the employees displayed.  They were all pleasant, helpful and extremely knowledgable with years of experience to back them up.  I am telling all my friends about them.  Use them!   I am sure you will be as happy as I am!  - Mary Diehl

Victor C. | 2012-12-22
