Scheduled an appointment with Lawrence and he pulled out the car to let me look at it. I didnt feel pressured at all and the process was very transparent. When on the test drive I realized I was a lot more rusty with driving stick than I anticipated. Lawrence was very understanding and offered to have it delivered. I told him Id think about it and the next day decided to buy the car after seeing all my options. Finalized the transaction over the phone and had it delivered to my address. Car has been overall pretty reliable. Spent just around $500 in parts(alternator, battery, crankshaft position censor etc) which I accounted for and is expected with older cars. CPC was covered under warranty too but I didnt want to drive back down to South El Monte. Pretty smooth experience for my first car purchase.
Highly responsive, more than reasonable pricing compared to competitive market price or KBB value, no secret add-ons like (preinstalled anti-theft). Just the agreed upon price with the typical tax and processing fees. BOTTOM LINE: if you want to do business you can go to a dealership, but if you want to buy a car from someone with integrity go here.
Originally gave a 5 star review but owner did not send me title.. it has been 1 year since purchase and now I have to get a bonded title. Have got in contact with him at least 6 times and he always says he will figure it out or call me back and he never did. Pretty sure he sold me the car without a title.
