We were shopping for a car for our 16 year old son and had a great experience at Bruce Cavenaugh's. The entire staff was a pleasure! Adrian was great, and Bruce was very honest and down to earth. I'll go back when it's time to buy a car for my daughter!

Seaport Auto Sales
This was such a great car buying experience. I bought my first car from Adam at Seaport Auto, and he helped me so much! He really knows the cars he has on his lot, and directed me to the car that is the best fit for me. Their selection is affordable (I am a college student) and their cars are in impeccable shape. I was thoroughly impressed.The specific car I bought had an alignment issue, and without hesitation, Adam gave me the name of their shop they use and who to talk to over there. Seaport Auto paid for the repairs to the car, which not many other dealers would be willing to do. Adam even gave me a name and number to call about getting insurance on my new car! Overall, I am so grateful and impressed with Adam and Seaport Auto as a whole. I would HIGHLY recommend it to someone looking for a great, affordable used car!

Seaside Auto Sales
My bf got his car there and recommended them so I went and I am glad I did! Lee doesn't pressure you into buying which I appreciated. He told me to look around and come get the keys if I wanted to look inside any vehicle or test drive one. After 2 days I finally settled on a 2012 Toyota camry and I love it! I might mention too he sold it to me for a $1000 BELOW the Kelly blue book value! Great place and now my bfs sister is gonna shop there next!
Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
