Auto City offers the main ingredients for stress-free used car shopping – superior inventory, perfect pricing, 3-day-money-back guarantee, financing for all and rave reviews!


Can Used Car Buying Be Enjoyable? This is a question we asked ourselves years ago when the idea for Auto City first came up. We could see that many people were anxious and even fearful of shopping for a good used car. That’s why we decided to come up with a whole new way of car shopping.

We looked at everything that was clearly broken in the typical used car buying process and set about fixing it. Our mission is nothing less than perfecting the used car buying process, one customer and one sale at a time. We found that the following six key initiatives emerged as the most important in creating the Auto City Way:

Superior Inventory. We only choose the best vehicles so you never have to worry about buying a lemon. Every one of our cars is thoroughly inspected, reconditioned, detailed, and comes with a warranty. We also make sure you know what we know: Every vehicle listed on our website has a history report with it, so you’ll know as much as we know about vehicle, including accidents and major repairs.

3-Day Money-Back Guarantee. If for any reason you have second thoughts about your purchase, you can return the car within three days for a full refund, no questions asked. As long as you drove the vehicle less than 500 miles and you didn’t do any damage to it, you can return it and get your full refund with no worries.

Perfect Pricing. We assign each of our cars a price that’s fair, competitive, transparent, and presented up-front so no one has to waste time haggling. Have you been through the old way of negotiating a price on a vehicle? You make an offer to the salesperson who then disappears to talk to the manager. The salesperson comes back with a counter-offer that is probably still much higher than you want to pay, and then you have to come up with another counter-offer or walk away. This can go on for several rounds and is both stressful and a complete waste of everyone’s time. You’ll never go through this painful process at Auto City.

Financing for All. We have exclusive relationships with some of the best banks and auto lenders in the industry. When they compete against each other for your business, you come out the winner. Among our network of lenders are such companies as Wells Fargo, Chase, Capital One, Ally, Americredit, California Republic Bank, Flagship Credit Acceptance, CUDL, local credit unions, and others.

Challenged-Credit Financing. Even if you’re credit-challenged, we’ll find the right program for you.

Rave Reviews. We know our customers love us, but don’t take our word for it. See for yourself by checking reviews on Google, Yelp, and DealerRater. Part of why the Auto City way works so well for people is that we don’t rush people to make a decision, or push people towards higher-priced vehicles. You set the pace and we follow your lead.
