Best Selection I've ever seen! – I just got back a tour of their lot and this dealership has such a wide variety of cars! I was pleased to know that a local dealer has such friendly and knowledgeable sales staff. They found me a car that met my requirements as far as capacity and use (3 passengers and daily driving). I didn't feel pressured into anything either. If your looking for a full sized or mid-sized SUV this is definitely the place to go!
Best Used Car Dealer – I absolutely LOVED This place. My husband and I were VERY nervous going to any car dealer just because they can always screw you over some how. We're talking family, having kids, that whole shebang. I had a Hyundai Accent, basically the flintstone car with NO room for a car seat. So I was looking at a small SUV, Classic Chariots actually had one that had everything I wanted so I test drove it, loved it and in less than 2 hours I was driving off in my new car! Kay was persistent with me to come in. At first I was irritated because I didn't want to be hassled but she was very short and sweet about it and I'm actually glad she kept on me otherwise I wouldn't be as happy as I am! Frank (The Tank) finished my paperwork for me and he was so nice and funny, he made this whole experience so much better! I will DEFINITELY be telling my friends/family if they need a car, go here. Seriously,....amazing. I don't know how anyone else is, but I
Used Cars....oh no!! OH YES! – The place was clean and as soon as we walked in we were greeted with some water (gets hot in Vista) and a great "no pressure" vibe. My wife does not like looking at cars and a used car lot can be distinctly unpleasant.
Classic Chariots was the opposite of your knee jerk response when thinking about used cars and the sales people that work on them....it was actually a very positive experience and after seeing their TV commercial (funny and runs alot!) and their comprehensive website. We will be back to pull the trigger on that awesome Chrslyer Pacifica.
At the end of the day Its about trust and I trust these guys
Got a great deal on OurToyota – After spending too much time at other car dealers, Classic chariots found us a great toyota rav4, I had it checked out by our mechanic, and it passed every inspection. clean car fax, and still under factory warranty. and best of all, 2000 to 3000 dollars less than all the other dealers in town. great place.
abusive – I purchased this with the salesperson promising me a 30 day warranty in print and signed, then promise to transfer original manufacturer warranty, and to extend to 4 years. Within 30 days of purchase, I stopped by, and no one would want to look over the engine which after an oil check needed a thermostat, radiator housing, water pump and hose and clamp. I stopped by three times, and on the third try, police were called to establish property rights since the purchase price did not reflect a single cent for my trade in, thus becoming theft under guise. The police said they could enforce the engine warranty, but advised to put the partial payment on the credit card disputable so that it would cover engine warranty. Sure enough, after just 2000 miles driven, the engine check light went on, and it turns out the engine oil wasn't changed and was tar black, there was no radiator fluid in the radiator, and the whole engine needs to be checked. The whole purchasing experience with the sales manager yelling at me about Kelly book price, and wanting more, was really a put off, and the engine being sold in such condition without minor oil change and fluid check really made this place a s. place to do business, which is straight from the mouth of their salesperson. Like the other reviewer who said they called to swear, my salesperson at the end of the transaction said my car she sold was a piece of s...
A Great Place to Purchase a Car – Classic Chariots is a great dealership. They have an amazing selection of cars, trucks, and SUV's. The vehicles are very clean and look like new.
It was really easy to find them from off the 78 freeway and their salesmen weren't pushy and off-putting like other salesmen at other dealerships.
The prices are very resonable and the financing is great, I will definately reccommend them to anyone looking to buy a car.
An overall great experience. ( :
Doesn't take advantage of military – Being active duty it is hard to know where to go to buy a car. All you hear is how everybody gets screwed over and which dealerships NOT to go to. A friend of mine bought a car from Classic Chariots and said it was a great experience. He wasnt lying! They had a huge selection and when I compared their prices to others on the internet, they were much less. I went in a test drove 3 or 4 trucks and they were nothing but patient with me. When I picked out my truck, they cut right to the chase, gave me the price I wanted, and had me done and driving home in less than an hour! I tell everybody to go here, they are not like the other dealers out there.
Trustworthy Place – Just bought my new (to me) Nissan Altima from these guys. I had been to many other dealerships and was barely given the time of day since I had some past bumps on my credit. They showed me respect and treated me like king. They got me approved on the car I wanted and still kept my payments low without asking me for a lot of money down. I will be sure to tell everybody to go see them.
was told to F@#K OFF by employee on phone – These guys have some nerve I was selling a car on craigs list and they auto dialed me with we want to buy your car after contacting them many times I got mad and the person at the dealer told me to F#$K OFF. WOW what kind of people work there??? so I went down to see there dealer and looked at there cars they all are way over blue book price. by $1000.00 . they were very rude when I started to ask why these cars were so over priced the guy told me that if I did not like it I should go some where else. they never connected the dots as to who I was.
Great for military with challenged credit – We were looking for a second vehicle for my son and myself and we wanted to look at the vehicles they had, kay the lady who helped us was very patient with me and my one year old son. We have a challenging credit score and wasn't sure if we would be able to get a second vehicle but long behold we were granted an approval and our vehicle was financed through miles, the best for military. We have gone to the chevvy dealership and the ford dealership and they told us we had been approved signed papers and drove home with what we thought was our vehicle, the next day we received a call telling us they couldn't find a bank to approve us, what liars we had to take the vehicle back, at classic chariots they were honest and even had the bank who financed us call us and tell us.
