Great Experience!! :), 12/06/2013

Walked in just to "look" walked out with a "new" car!!!! Very friendly people and great cutomer service!!! :) Miguel did a really good job explaining and helping us through the whole process!


Last Stop I had to make, 9/13/2013

Let me start by saying this place is awesome!!! I had been looking for a car all day. Auto Thrift was the last place I stopped before heading home. I thought I was a dreaming I was greeted by Tony... Pergola and he was the only salesperson that actually listened to me. He came right out and said to me " what is it you want to do"?. I told him exactly what I want as far as a car goes and a monthly payment I could afford. I was shocked everything I wanted I got. The other dealerships treated me like a number and didn't listen to one word I said. This place treated me and my son like family and listened to me..even the owner Frank stop to sit with me for a while. I have never seen a place where everybody is hands on. I left the dealership happy and relaxed. Tony,Frank and the entire staff at Auto Thrift are AMAZING!!! If you need a car go check them out you won't be sorry. !!!

Used Cars

I have bought 4 cars from these people and I have never had any problems that can not be resolved,cars always break, but if the problem is cover by the warranty that they offer which is a limited 50% on certain items like the engine, transmition, supension believe me they will take care of you, now if the car is cover by full warranty, this means if the car is still protected by factory warranty then the manufacturer will take care of the problem. I recomend this dealership to anybody.

liars

I just bought a car from them. So far the car is dine. However they lied to to me about my trade in and the value of the car o bought. They would not let me leave when I wanted. Was there for 6 hours! After all said and done they ripped me off. Never again. Go else where for a better deal and nicer employees.
