With somewhere in the neighborhood of 56 car purchases in my life, I have yet to have the experience as I did at this dealership. Like most all of the other reviews on this site my wife and I only have positive things to say about the car I bought and the people I bought it from. Though I tried my best to negotiate a better deal, with only some success, I discovered both before and after my purchase that the price I paid for my 2012 MBZ E550 Cabriolet was unbeatable throughout the country. Kim in finance was even able to match the interest rate from my local credit union. Nick was not the typical stereotype salesman and went beyond what one would expect. He even closed the store so he could pick me up at the airport. THIS IS THE KIND OF PLAY YOU GO BACK TO.
Good Morning, First and foremost I want to say thank you from my heart. An honest dealer is usually considered an oxymoron here. First impressions last and mine was how the the Ad showed the car's report that detailed the good and bad clearly. No hiding anything. It was all laid out for me to decide on my own. Your entire staff was polite and very comfortable to be with. No pressure, no attitude, just relaxed and like I was looking at a car with a friend or neighbor. I looked at the same year, make, model at CarMax and to be honest it was even more enjoyable at Elite. No appointment necessary, no waiting, no busy staff rushing about. And best of all you are willing to negotiate where CarMax is that take it or leave it attitude at the end of the day. Finally the price was so reasonable I really could have wondered why it was so low but I just had faith that all the signs pointed to you guys being the exception and I was proven right. You are exceptionally honest and reasonable. A Gem and "Elite" is a perfect name. Stand proud you are all Elite Auto, worthy of that title as a company and not just because of the cars. My White 2010 BMW 335d is cleaner, nicer, better in all ways than the CarMax ones that didn't even appear to be detailed. I'm not knocking CarMax I'm saying your attention to details in cleaning it and choosing good cars to sell is way better than the mass market approach they use. My car has been a joy to drive and I look forward to driving it every day. Having that information you gave me helped me to have faith in the car. I would not hesitate to send my parents or best friends to buy a car from you. because after that check in the mail with the license plates showed up unexpectedly you earned my respect and faith you are truly the most honest auto dealer I have ever visited. To get something back as over payment from a car dealer is just incredible. Keep it up. Good business like this will not fail. I will gladly represent your integrity and honesty to anyone who asks and feel free to use me as a referral anytime.
"Elite Auto Imports is a great place to buy a car. Eli has good cars at good prices... It's a simple as that. No hassle like at conventional dealerships! I got a gorgeous BMW X3 for thousands less than I would have paid elsewhere. My husband and I will definitely buy from Eli again!" Thanks.
I just want to say I love my VW Beetle. I am so happy I found your dealership. I was looking for over a month and was ready to purchase from another dealership when I found your listing on the INTERNET. Your car was not only newer, had less mileage, and still under the factory warranty, no one could beat your price. You offered a beautiful car, best price around, and great customer service. I will gladly recommend anyone that mentions to me they are interested or thinking about getting a new car.
I recently purchased a 2005 SLK 350 from Eli of Elite Auto Imports. Eli was so helpful over the phone to tell me about the car that I felt real good driving from Oakland to see the car. Just as he said, the car was beautiful, inside and out. Elite Auto Imports was able to address all my needs and they delivered a fine vehicle for me to pick up. I'd definitely recommend Elite Auto Imports for your Pre-Owned luxury car needs.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THE MINI COOPER my husband bought for my birthday at Elite Auto Imports! We live in Chico and drove to Sacramento for the day to check out Minis. Eli and Nick were AWESOME to work with. The whole experience was very easy and comfortable- actually, it was an absolute pleasure! Eli has a real eye for picking out awesome, gently used imported cars and they are all in fabulous, ready-to-go shape! This little Mini is the perfect color of blue and it is so clean and has all the extras I was looking for AND the price was right too! We were so happy we found Elite Auto and whenever we are in the market for another car we will not hesitate to contact them to see what they have or to let them know what we are looking for. We give Elite Auto 5 stars and we would encourage everyone to shop there first!
I found Nik and Eli quite fair and reasonable. Oh, and patient. I never felt like a mark or prospect more like a partner in my Porsche Boxster purchase project. I would not hesitate to do business with Elite Auto Imports again. Thank you gentlemen."
I recently purchased a Mercedes-Benz SL-500 from Elite Auto Imports. Not only is the car beautiful, you made the sales process easy. This is the first time I've bought a car where there was no pressure from the sales staff, (you, in this case). In addition I really appreciate your help in making it a surprise gift for my wife, she had no idea she was getting the car and your help was instrumental in making the surprise work. She loves the car but I'm sorry to say that it will be a while before she's ready to part with it and buy another one from you! Thanks.
Hello Guys, I just wanted to take the time to again thank you for the wonderful automobile and service you provided for me. I have bought over 30 automobiles and I can say I've never had a better experience buying a car. For you folks considering buying an automobile, I highly recommend the Team at Elite Auto Imports. They have an inventory of high quality cars at extremely fair prices. I am comfortable recommending my friends to purchase their next car from Elite Auto Imports. If any of you folks would like, please feel free to call me. Eli, you and Nick are great! Thanks again for aiding me in obtaining my Porsche.
My wife and I recently had a great experience working with Eli to buy a car at Elite Auto Imports. We were getting very frustrated with the "big car dealers" in both our home city of Reno and also in California.Eli was a welcome relief. We bought a great BMW X5 in excellent condition and super clean as all of his cars are. The price was very fair. He is a BMW expert and answered all our questions. He spent a great deal of time with us and was very patient. The whole experience was enjoyable. Eli went the extra distance and promptly delivered the car to us even in questionable weather conditions. I can not say enough about the awesome customer service. I can highly recommend Eli and Elite Auto Imports and will definitely buy my next car there. "I bought my 2009 BMW X5 M-Edition from Eli at Elite Auto Imports. They had the exact car I had been searching for that no other dealers in California had, at a discounted price! Eli answered all of my questions and made the purchase smooth and painless. I will definitely being doing business with him again in the future. Thank you!"
I did buy the 2008 BMW 528i here with Eli. He is really nice and a BMW expert. I stop at his place like 5 times and check out all different models. He is always patient and able to help me to understand the difference between different vehicles. The price talk was smooth and no pressure. I have been driving the car for about 3 months now. I love the car. Gas mileage is awesome! It has a 4 yr/50,000 mi. warranty. Service - Good and friendly. Recommend - Yes, when I would buy a car I will check his inventory first.
I purchased my Porsche Turbo last year from Eli. He is a car enthusiast who likes nice cars and knows a lot about them. So, of course, what kind of cars does he stock.. Nice cars. This is my second Porsche and this car is amazing. It runs like a dream and after a year of spirited driving, I've encountered no issues. He said to me at some point that he hand-picks the nicest cars he can for his business and having looked through the cars at his dealership and having bought this beast of a car, I can say that I am a believer.
I’m from San Francisco but I purchased a 2007 Audi S4 from Eli at Elite Auto Imports after searching for a couple months. I really enjoy the car and the buying experience was comfortable. The price was competitive and the car is in excellent condition and still has some factory warranty left. Thank you,
I just bought a 08 Porsche Carrera, Eli and Nik made everything so easy for me to import the vehicle into Canada. Everything they said they would do was done on the spot, all paper work sent the next day. Thank you both.
I have just purchased a 2010 Volkswagen Tiguan from Eli and I couldn't be happier! I had my eye on this car for a year and when I was ready to buy I went to Eli and I was amazed how fast he found my car. The car it's in perfect condition and it works great it's exactly what I wanted and I didn't had to compromise. The sales process was extremely fast and painless! I would recommend Eli to anyone looking for a car give him the first shot and you will not be disappointed. I am definitely buying my next car from Elite Auto Imports! Thank you so much!
I bought my '09 MINI Cooper this past summer of 2012 from Elite and couldn't have been happier. It was easy to deal with Eli and Nick. They did not pressure me like other dealers do. My car was spotless and looked brand new. They even offered for me to take the car home after I put 20% down, before the rest of the loan was finalized. I have and will continue recommending Elite Auto Imports to anyone interested in a great luxury car. Thanks again guys Lanah 🙂
