Gil's Auto Sales
When buying a used car there is a lot of room for con artists to make a quick profit like Budget Auto Sales of Carter Lake Iowa. However when I went to Gil’s Auto Sales I was quite impressed. The Good:The staff maintain a professional appearance and seem to really care how their customers are treated and spoken to. The GM of the company, Darren, was the man who assisted me today with the purchase of my vehicle. I very much liked the no pressure sales approach. However, I took a mechanic to test drive the vehicles before I made any decision. The Bad:We test drove three vehicles. Car 1 had a power steering issue and the seatbelt trapped the mechanic into the seat and we decided against it. Car 2 tested perfectly and Car 3 had extreme break issues (like wouldn’t stop break issues!). My budget was 2500 dollars. In this bracket you are going to find a lot of rough cars. It’s just a fact. Take someone you trust who knows cars and test drive the vehicles extensively before signing any agreement. This is common knowledge when approaching a used car lot. Overall I'd give it 4 Stars because of the car issues on some of the vehicles but 5 Stars in service.

Select Auto
I was searching the web for a cargo van. I finally found one with the mileage, options and price that I wanted at Select Auto. Since I live just west of Kansas City, I had to set up the deal over the phone. These guys were easy to deal with. I emailed them the pictures of my trade and they gave me a reasonable offer right over the phone. I called my bank and had my financing already set up so when I made the 3 hour drive to Omaha the transaction was quick and easy. I spent more time talking to Ray about muscle cars than we did actually making the deal. I will definitely keep them in mind the next time I'm looking for a used car. Be sure to check out the antique cars in their showroom.

JD Byrider
When I came to JD Byrider, I was all out of choices n frustrated. Before I got to the door, a sales associate greeted me and instantly made me feel welcome. I told him this was my last resort, and if they couldn't help me get an affordable car, then I wasn't coming in. He assured me that he would get me in a car with affordable payments. Long story short, he kept his word and delivered. I left out with a card. JD Byrider helped me get plates for the car, free oil changes AND a 3yr/36,000 mile warranty on just about everything. I have referred many ppl to them and will not stop. Thanks JD Byrider. You rock!!!

A-1 Auto Parts
If you have a junk car, I highly recommend giving A-1 Auto Parts a call. Not only do they offer you top price for your junk car, they work with you to solve other problems - that save you money! We were wanting to remove and replace the good tires on our junk car, but the repair facility where the car died was going to charge us $150 to make the switch. A-1 picked up the junk car, then pulled the tires and gave them to us – for free! It does make a difference who buys your junk car. Call Terry or Greg for great customer service.

Classic Auto Sales Inc
My third Porsche purchase from Bob and Terry, going back fifteen years. For this Cayenne they searched all over the country to find one that met our strict specifications for age, color, mileage, features, etc. This is not your typical used car lot. They are specialists, and their service and support are in line with their pricing which may not always be the "cheapest." You get excellent value for the dollars spent.

All Star Auto
They are great, I took my car to a chain repair shop and they told me I needed a few thing done to my car. It was going to coast me 1800 bucks, so I called around to get a better deal and All Star Auto told me it would only coast 800. When All Star Auto started looking at my car only one of the repair needed to be done. It only coast me $130. They were great and saved me tons of money.

Having a newer car requires a full synthetic blend oil change. This is the cheapest in town, and they don't waste your time! You're in and out faster than you ever could imagine! Extremely friendly and extremely knowledgeable. I will take my Toyota and BMW here for every oil change in the future!

I've been using JD Byrider for years! They are always knowledgeable and helpful. But most importantly they have a great customer service team! Not to mention the process from arriving and leaving the lot in a new car is really easy compared to other dealerships I've delt with by far!

Tips & Advices
Salvage yards will have different policies regarding warranties, but, in most instances, the parts you find will be covered. Some salvage yards will offer warranties of anywhere from 90 days to six months, and may even offer the option for extended coverage.
After you've successfully found a part or multiple components, take everything up to the clerk. Inform them of what you have and pay. Avoid lying about what you have as a way to pay less. You will potentially be banned if you're found lying. You-pick salvage yards will display the prices for categories of parts. Prices may fluctuate depending on the demand. Harder-to-find items could carry a higher price tag than a brand-new one. If you are salvaging for auto parts, you might see items that are difficult to find and be able to sell them for a profit. Doing so can offset the cost of the price you're paying for the parts you personally need.
It is in your interest to call the salvage yard before arriving to see if they sell smaller components individually, because some yards do not. Some owners choose to not sell small components for financial reasons.  If salvage lots come across a door without the handle, they will have to pay extra to get the handle and attach it to the entire assembly. It is therefore cost-effective for salvage lots to sell entire assemblies.
When rummaging through a car or walking around the lot, stay aware of your surroundings. Remember, you aren't the only visitor looking to salvage parts. Other individuals are also looking for components, and not everyone works as safely as possible. If you find a car you'd like to inspect, make sure working conditions are suitable, and if anything looks suspicious or dangerous, find a safer vehicle to tear apart.
Typical gear includes:
  • Pliers
  • Hammer
  • Screwdrivers
  • Hacksaw
  • Short pry bar
  • Combination wrenches
  • Gloves
  • Safety glasses
  • Inch ratchet set
Keep these tools in the car:
  • Inch-drive socket set
  • Large hammer
  • Long pry bar
  • Cardboard
  • Coveralls
  • Two feet of pipe
