I had been looking at used cars for 2 weeks, then was ready to buy. I just sold my car so needed my new wheels quick. Had a list of car lots and specific cars from the internet. Traveled from all over Columbus,to Pataskala, to Lancaster, to Delaware. It was the end of the third and last day of my buyer's grace period, and I was on my last nerve and heading home. I remembered stopping at The Village Car Store during my "shopping around" stage and it was only minutes from my house so I decided to swing by. The very nice young man I spoke to previously greeted me. All the cars there are high quality and I explained my situation and test drove several cars. Unfortunately, although very tempted, they were just a little beyond my budget. This is a family owned business (father & sons). I was asked what my limit was, and the young man went in to talk with dad. When he came back out he said "hold on, my dad wants you to look at a car." They brought around a 2003 Ford Taurus SE. There was only minor body dings/scratches and the interior looked brand new/spotless. Electric seats AND pedals, then test drive made it more inviting. "You can have it at your price out the door." "Huh!?" Was able to have my mechanic give it a good look and thumbs up. Done deal and very happy! To be truthful, I just about felt like part of the family. What a world it would be if we had more people like this. Great car buying experience!
This place was awesome! I literally had been looking for a car for weeks, when a friend told me about this place. I was greeted immediately after I stepped out of my brothers van, they were polite, well dressed, and knowledgeable. The salesman even told me he didnt want to me sell me the car that first caught my eye because it had problems and they were getting rid of it to a wholesaler. When I found my baby (its a 2005 audi a4 convertible) they let me take a nice test drive, and even offered me a soda. Car ran great, and after a year its gave me ZERO problems. They sold me the car for about $1000 less than kelly blue book value of a private party sale. Thats amazing for a used car lot. They threw in a 3 month warranty for free, and even gave me CADH for sending a buddy in who bought a car. Very nice place, good people, great cars, friendly service, and super low prices. What more could you ask for.
This is just a preliminary review as I just purchased the vehicle a few days ago. So far so good. My sales person was Carl Peterson and I would say that he was very helpful in getting me into a vehicle. Yes, I have some credit challenges but I would say that the price of the vehicle was a lot more than it is worth and I know that once everything is said and done, I am not going to have something worth anything. That is the chance that people like me have to take. I did like the fact that they will defer your down payment if you don't have all of it upfront. My monthly payment is doable. The person I spoke with at the finance company, CNAC, was also helpful. I only hope that this experience is a good one but like I said, so far so good.
