Reviews on Carsmart

John J. | 2015-02-08

I,ve purchased 3 vehicles from Jeff over the last 10 years. 2 trucks and a sedan ranging from $800 to just over a $3500. Each car I drove for years and sold each vehicle for what I paid. That tells me the cars were all in great shape for the price I paid and each transaction was a mutually beneficial negotiation and deal for both parties. This is how business should be, fair pricing for quality products. Transactions were easy and information provided for each car I considered was honest and up front. They listen to what I wanted and gave me good information about the options about the inventory they had on hand. I tell everyone I know looking to buy a used car about Carsmart.

The first car that I purchased was from Carsmart. It was a 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer - the price was very competitive. I was in college so didn't have much money, and Jeff gave me an amazing deal on a 1) cute car that was also 2) safe to drive and 3) affordable (these were my three needs). The car had absolutely zero issues after purchasing, except the usual maintenance (oil changes, battery changes).

I also purchased my second car from Carsmart - it is the car that I currently drive and it is a 2004 Honda Civic Coupe LX. The car is in great condition, and I've been driving it smoothly for a year. When browsing for my second car,  Jeff  talked me out of buying a more expensive Volkswagen and recommended a cheaper Honda - they are not in it for the money. He wanted to ensure I made a wise auto investment that would last me long term with little issues.

I am pleased with the customer service here. The owner and manager are honest, friendly, and genuinely care for the safety and satisfaction of their customers. They will be upfront and honest if they feel a car is not a good fit. I will probably buy my third car from here because my last two successful purchases make me feel like I can trust them.

I find it hilarious that you would even respond. As far as why this posted months after the fact, I am not sure.
Also you're right we did not purchase any sort of vehicle from your shack of an establishment and why would we, when every single car we looked after on your lot had some sort of damage. We looked past the fact that your "business" looked like someone's rundown house trying to run a shady car business.
What makes matters worse, is the fact that you felt the need to reply to my first review of your business by stating some number out of thin air that we supposedly offered you.
I give fair reviews to businesses that I have visited, and as far as your business it still would give this a zero star if I could, especially after your response. That just makes you and your business look even worse.

I had a great experience at Carsmart. Jeff was very laid back and took pains not to rush me or put me on the spot as I hemmed and hawed - he did not try to steer me to a more expensive choice and gave me the space decide on what I wanted. The selection here goes from $2500 to $15,000 and there is a decent selection of a variety of types of vehicles for a smallish lot. I ended up with a great deal (they were flexible on the price) and my mechanic gave my choice a clean bill of health.  They patiently explained every charge and gave me a total out of pocket costs ahead of time - NO last minute "gotcha's".  I would not hesitate to send any friend or family member here.

Carsmart has about 40 hand picked cars from $1,200 to $10,000 or so, and yes, even the cheap cars run good (although they may not be the prettiest flower in the garden), all the cars will do what they are supposed to do without ego--get you to work and back without any problems.  They even fixed a small dent (my fault) for free while I waited, and I never even asked them.

If you can't handle car payments, buy  a good used car from Carsmart and own it, like I did.  You'll thank yourself later.  Any minor problems that creep up, they will fix for you.  And they also have a carfax for every car they sell.  That's why they're still in business.  Top recommendation.

Crappy customer service. Beat down shack of a place. Not interested in helping you look for a car. Crap cars stay away from this hole!

Used cars are used cars but if you need to staunch the bleeding use Carsmart. The first thing you will notice is a small lot but it is always full. The sign will always have a witty musing or saying. It is in a brick building with a french restaurant fresco on the top window. But besides the external the salesmen are very helpful. They are very direct but also accommodating they ran the Carfax and will not force a sale on the spot. I waited a week before returning and choose the car I wanted. He sold it as-is but not more then a week later I found a problem with the shifter. I went back in and asked if he knew a trick to fix it and he went ahead and set up a appointment at Micheal's auto body in Northgate. He went ahead and payed for the whole $200 repair which was amazing cause he had knocked $400 for being a neighbour off on the initial sales tag. He was such a big help that I went out and looked for a good bottle of wine to show my appreciation.
