We purchased a Toyota Camry 2011 from Automax . Overall a very positive sales experience from a team that does everything possible to make sure a customer leaves satisfied with the experience. Short story is that if you want to work with a responsive, low pressure, straight forward, customer-focused group of people, this is the place to visit. Here are the details. We saw a car online that was of interest to us. Because we live out of town decided to give contact the dealership to learn more. The internet sales manager, Michael, was extremely helpful. He was professional and polite and responded to our inquiry promptly, and gave us very honest answers to our questions. When I called him on the phone to ask if the car looked as good as it did in the photos, he took the time to walk out look it over and come back with an assessment of it. We drove from Las Vegas to Santa Ana, CA to see the car. Michael met us and all that we were told about the quality of the car was true. Because we had interest in the car he introduced us to one of their sales people, Mario. His sales style was low pressure, credible and honest. We test drove the car and went home to think about it and compare it to others we were considering. During the week a few questions came up about the car. Mario understood that my work week was busy and although he had my mobile phone number responded to my questions by e-mail (as requested). He was extremely responsive and here to help. No pressure, not hassle, just out to see if he can help a person find a car that works for them. The negotiation process was done mostly by e-mail and was basically painless. Unlike other dealerships we had contacted, there was no desire to play games or use hardball negotiation tactics. When it came time to close the transaction he made sure that all of details of the transaction were addressed including a very minor cosmetic repair were done to our satisfaction.

Guaranty Chevrolet
I was ready to buy a car and I had my list of three different cars so I started to go to the dealers. The first dealer didn't have my car then 2nd dealer seem to be a little too pushy I was feeling a little too much pressure on me. then we went over to the last one which was guaranteed Chevrolet and Brian was really easy going and answered all my questions very professional it made the whole experience very enjoyable and then of course there was several of the cars that I wanted to select from and after the test drive I knew this place was it. This has been my third car that I bought from a car dealer and by far the best experience. If you're looking to buy a car definitely give Guaranty Chevrolet I'll try you'll find everybody there easy to talk to very knowledgeable and I'm sure you'll have a great experience as I did.

I had the pleasure of speaking and working with the exceptional Michael from Internet Sales. He asked me what was important to me and made sure everything I wanted was ready for my visit to the dealership the next day. Michael had the vehicle ready when I arrived, we test drove it and went right in to financing without any issues. Dave took care of the financing and he was also exceptional and really cared about me and how I wanted to pay. He took his time and explained everything to me and had me out of there as soon as possible. He handed me back off to Michael who had the car detailed and everything done on the car while I was in with Dave. The entire process was smooth and I really appreciated the exceptional customer service by both . Thank you.

Un amigo me recomendo este dealer por el buen precio que dan y a pesar de ser carros usados estan en buenas condiciones y no te estafan como en otros dealers. Ya he comprador carros usados anteriormente en otros dealers pero me han sacado un ojo de la cara. Hace un tres meses compre una Nissan Armada y hasta el momento cualquier pregunta que tengo ellos dan la caray no se esconden como en otros dealers que te venden el carro y despues ya ni te conocen. Los dueños no son latinos pero te atienden mejor que tu propia raza. El vendedor Mario que es latino me hablo derecho y sin rodeos como le Deben de hablar a uno a la hora de comprar y sin econder nada, Les recomiendo este dealer en toda la extension de la palabra!

La verdad no me gusta hacer comentarios en internet, pero si me atrevi a hacerlo es para toda esa gente que quiere comprar carro usado de dealer y no sabe donde. Antes de comprar mi carro , me dedique a buscar en otros dealers y quede muy decepcionada en la forma en que quieren exprimirlo a uno y mas cuando no se sabe mucho acerca de interes y todo esos precios que le ocultan a uno con tal de que compren. Para toda esa gente que quieren comprar un carro usado que es como yo trabajadora y que buscan un buen precio y sobre todo que este en buenas condiciones y donde no le vean a uno la cara y sean honesto les recomiendo al 100 % Automax el que esta en el 701 s Main en Santa Ana. Suerte !

After much review with the kind of car I wanted, I found it here at Calif Motors Direct. I called and spoke to Ian who was very helpful and made sure my credit was ran and that I got the best financing for my husband and I. When we showed up Ian was very helpful and took us on a test drive. We also wanted to buy a Chrysler 300. With a phone call to their other location a Chrysler was brought over to test drive. We bought it. After driving my husband noticed an issue with the brakes. We call Ian and he said bring it in and we will take care of it. So we did. I would definitely, go back to buy my next car.

So, these reviews certainly scared me, and fortunately I did not read them until after I had discovered a very good price on a car that fit all my needs (low mileage, new model). Kenny was beyond amazing. He took a deposit and held the car in spite of getting other offers until I could make it down there. After a 2.5 hour drive thanks to LA weekend traffic, we were not disappointed. Kenny and I had texted throughout the week, making the process smooth. The car was ready to go and exceeded my expectations. I must say that after this experience, I do wonder why I or anyone would ever buy a new car again!

I purchased a vehicle from these guys a few months ago. I just want to say that the whole process with them was very good. As car lots go, these guys are top notch. They treat you fairly and honestly. I got my vehicle from them and when I had an issue with it, after trying to work on it myself and diagnose the problem on my own I returned to Sterling and thru talking with Omar we were able to come to a resolution and solution to my issue. Needless to say I'm once again back in the saddle with my vehicle and it's running tip top! Thank you Sterling...thank you OMAR - you are very good at what you do!

I started looking at cars, knowing that it may take a couple of months before I was ready to purchase. Automaxcorp impressed me and believe me, I did my research, having looked at 5 other dealerships, unsure of the car I wanted to purchase. My salesman, Mario, was professional, honest, and straightforward. He knew what I was looking for and checked in every now and then but did not hassle me. When he called me a couple months later to let me know he found the car that met all my specifications, I was thrilled! I went in the next day and got my BMW and I love it!! Great dealer! Great salesperson!

I was in a position where I needed to purchase a vehicle fast and I am sure glad I came to this California Motors Direct!! I went online, put in my specifics and within hours was contacted and had set up an appointment to meet with one of the sales men at the dealership. When I arrived he had already picked out a few car that met my criteria, we test drove them and I was in and out in just a couple hours. didn't have to hassle with a bunch of pressure from the sales people and they did all the leg work to make the process of purchasing my Nissan Altima as quick and painless as possible
Tips & Advices
Yes. New tires purchased online can often be priced lower than ones at a tire dealership. Buyers can often avoid state sales taxes and locate hard-to-find tire styles and sizes, but will still have to locate a local tire installer and pay sometimes high shipping costs.
The average cost of a set of new tires is $637, with a range of between $525-$725. In addition, installation includes mounting and balancing, alignment, and disposal of old tires.
The vehicle is raised and the old wheels are removed, then the old tires are removed from the wheels. The lug nuts, wheels, and valve stems are inspected and replaced as needed. The new tires are mounted and sealed, then inflated and balanced. The wheels are then replaced on the car. The average installation takes approximately 45 minutes.
Agencies such as the Tire Industry Association promotes tire safety through advocacy and education to the industry including: manufacture, sales, repair, service and recycling. Seek a full-service tire dealer who carries a wide variety of tire types and brands and asks about the type of driving you normally do.
  • Move your car to a safe location.
  • Turn on your car’s safety lights, apply the parking brakes and remove the hubcap if there is one.
  • Loosen the lug nuts with a lug wrench (but do not remove them), raise the vehicle with a jack and then fully remove the lugnuts.
  • Remove the flat tire and replace it with the spare tire.
  • Tighten the lug nuts by hand, lower the car and then tighten them fully with the lug wrench.
