It was a hot Friday afternoon and we have been looking for cars for a full day. Let me tell you we have seen many cars with flaws such as dents, pet stains, scratches, smelly sales people, and cars with flat tires ( I can't believe half the stuff we have seen) when we got to Miramar Motorsports the first thing they asked us was if we would like a soft drink! After I looked at the truck of my dreams with a nice ice cold Dr Pepper in my hand I realized this truck is like brand new. Exterior had no dents or scratches and it appeared to look like it was just detailed minutes before I showed up with those plastic stickers over the floor mats. Took it for a nice long test drive with the AC blasting. After a 10 minute chat with Mike the finance guy, I got a 3.9% rate with a $1,000 discount and I didn't even have to play any games to get it. I wish I came here first could have gone to the beach and not waste a hole day. It has been 8 months now and I love my truck like a old drinking buddy from collage. Thanks guys!
First time I bought a car and couldent be happier – So I have been saving up for some time now to buy my first car. After visiting this place I was really impressed. I was looking for a 2003 Subaru Impreza WRX (also known as a "BUG EYE"). I FOUND THE CAR OF MY DREAMS!!!. I took it out for a test drive and I was in love. Took a business card and a carfax and told them I need some time to think since it was a big purchase. I was really surprised they let me go without pressuring me. I went back to take at it again and again, after the 4th time I was ready. I was in and out in 20 minutes. Its been 7 months now and I could not be happier.
Very Easy to deal with! – Went in looking for a Toyota Tacoma and met Ray at the door. Showed me there Tacoma's and told me the prices. Took two of them on a test drive, grabbed a card told them I would stay in touch. After looking around town at garbage trucks I went running back. (could have saved myself allot of time) Gave me a discount with a rate lower then my credit union and was on my way in my new truck! These guys were never pushy because I think they know they have good product's. Its been 6 months now and I couldn't be happier!!
Great Service, Friendly People and Honest! – Bought my Subaru from these guys 2 years ago and just yesterday I came to turn on the AC and heard a loud wierd sound. I called Mike at the dealership and asked if he knew a repair shop I can take it to. He told me about a shop that they have been using for years called Sam Lee auto repair and told me to put my trust in them so off I went. After visiting the shop they told me it was a fan belt and it should be ready in a hour. When it was done they told me Mike called ahead and paid for it. WHO DOES THAT THESE DAYS????? Buying a car 2 years later having a problem with it and the dealership pays for it. WOW I am amazed. A+ for these guys!!!!!!!!!!!!
Unstable, rude sales people, AVOID THIS BUSINESS ! – If only I could give this "business" zero stars. Please read.
My MX-5 was hit by another driver while parked and after being totaled by the insurance company I went shopping for a replacement. I saw an enticing ad in the AutoTrader for one of their vehicles and called to ask if it was still on the lot and if we could arrange for a test drive. This was a newer turbo model and more expensive than my old MX-5; I wanted to see how the car felt and if its cost was justified . The person I spoke to on the phone replied "Do you want to buy the car, or do you want to drive it ?" which I felt was a rude way to start a buyer/seller relationship.
I stopped by the next day and gave the car an inspection. One of the brothers pointed out the car to me, then relaxed on a couch while I looked it over. I didn't ask to test drive it, partly because I was short on time and partly because I felt put off by their lack of service. All he said was that it was a good car and his price was firm, I thanked him, took a business card, and left.
Two days later I returned to the dealership. I had since found a better deal on the same year/style of MX-5, but before I purchased it I was interested in examining the Honda S2000, which is similar in many respects. This dealership also had an S2000 on the lot that appeared to be a fair deal so I returned (unwisely) and inspected that car.
I had explained my situation, how my car had been totaled and I was shopping for a replacement. And that the insurance company would soon stop covering my rental and I needed to replace my car in the next four days. I asked, politely, if it was possible to test drive the S2000.
The same brother that helped me before again asked me if I wanted to buy that car today, or whether I was just wanting to drive it. I again explained that I had only a few days to purchase a car and that I was motivated to buy but I couldn't be expected to put an offer on a car I had never driven. Their listing for the S2000 was reasonable but I'd simply never been behind the wheel of one before and I certainly wanted to drive the car before making any decisions .
He told me to go look at other S2000's and drive them, and to come back and make an offer on the car if I wanted to buy it. I was very put off. I tried to explain that I was serious about buying a car but he just told me to go look at other cars and not come back unless I was going to make an offer right then.
At this point I decided there was no way I would purchase anything from a dealership that had this kind of sales attitude and told him to forget it. I understand there might be guys that just want to get behind the wheel of a fun car and take it for a spin, but I explained my situation and I don't know why he was so rude from the beginning.
As I was leaving I opened my big mouth and asked him why he was acting like that and why he didn't want to work with me on buying a car. He said "I know your type" and that I wasn't interesting in buying a car and I was just wasting his time. This should have been my cue to walk away but my temper got the best of me and we traded some choice words which escalated (on their part) from language to physical threats in the span of a couple seconds. They basically chased me off the lot while calling me names and threatening to kick my ***.
I completely understand a review on another site that called the guys that work her "violent, rude, and extremely unstable." It's tough to imagine anyone having a positive experience with these guys.
AVOID THIS DEALERSHIP AT ALL COSTS. Its prices aren't that good and the brothers that work there are completely out of control.
My experience was negative enough that I've been creating accounts on any review site I could find just to tell my story about these guys. Go to a real dealership or private party where you can talk to people respectfully without being treated like you're invading their space.
AWESOME PEOPLE, AWESOME CARS, LEGIT BUSSINESS, A++ SERVICE – I was a first time buyer, my credit wasn't even that good (had some collections/repos) and i was previously turned down by other dealerships and my bank. I really needed a car, and i wanted to look nice. Miramar motorsports had a great collection of quality used cars: 1 owner, clean titles! (very important), like new condition, low mileage, and cars you'd only dream of buying new... Doing research i had my heart set on a mazda RX8, I knew i wasn't getting a brand new car. But the older models were pretty much the same as the new ones, same engines, just different interior like mp3 input, which i wasn't too concerned about. I talked to the boss Mike, he was a friendly down to earth person and honestly wanted me to get my dream car. He looked at my credit and said, "your credit is pretty wrecked. But I'll do my best to help you out, i can see that you are trying to better your credit and it shows." I go test out the car with his brother Ray. I immediately fell in love with the car... 10k rpm at redline... a high rev car and it was very smooth shifting gears... almost felt like i was a nascar driver or something. Going back to the office I was scared to face Mike with bad news of rejection... But to my surprise he was able to get me approve with wachovia (wellsfargo) which was my bank o.O. I was really surprised because i talked to my bank a few months before and they told me to get a better credit score... Mike said his mother works for wellsfargo and knew how to pull some strings and that he went from heaven to hell to get me approved. "You owe me a 6 pack of beer!" haha i was soo happy, my first car and it was the one i wanted i never thought it would happen with my bad credit score. MIKE/RAY THANK YOU VERY MUCH. Car runs fine, tiptop shape, and i baby it like no other. I'm a very happy client, and I'm definitely going to refer Miramar motorsports to my brother and friends.
