PROUD TO BE YOUR DEALERSHIP

As a small business, we work hard every day at Auto City to create the best experience for our customers, be a great employer to our amazing team, and give back to the community we serve — but if you believe some of the latest commercials from national “online car buying” brands, you may think we’re movie villains 😂.

Stan explained to me that I needed a car that I can afford as a college student with a minimum wage job and gave me a reality check that I needed.

    No complaints..........just didn't see what I was looking for in my price range.........market is super high for the buyer.........can almost get a new one after the rebate and incentives for what most of the car's I saw were priced at..........might just go and get a new one on a low down payment lease........i can say that the car's are of good quality..........better than many dealer's I've visited

    I am truly amazed at how quick this transaction was, Stanley and his team were very professional, straightforward and did not pressure us at all at any moment. I always had a thing about "small" dealerships and was really hesitant at the beginning. We sent our not so candid credit information thru the online application on Wednesday morning and we had a new car at home on Thursday evening. Highly recommended, will definitely be back!

There was absolutely no pressure, and we didn’t have to negotiate the price at all because it was already below CarFax. Unlike our dealership experience, they didn’t try to tack on a bunch of extra costs when finalizing all the paperwork, and they were very candid with us about everything.
