Ami katz is good (no personal experience with him)
Just keep in mind all his cars are ex-rentals (I think from enterprise) usually with some minor damage, could be only cosmetic.
I don't believe you can check out the car first. (Unless he has it in his driveway)

+1 on Lkwd Auto, and its worth to pay the extra margin to get it from Lkwd Auto.

who pays 'extra margin'?  :D

They're actually both competitively priced and reputable.
Esp if you're not buying a standard used (i.e. off-lease Accord/Camry/Odyssey/Sienna/Pilot), it always pays to shop around.

I personally would, as a good number of people don't treat rentals well.

Old argument. Well maintained vs likely/possible abuse.
But the truth is, you have the same problem with off-lease vehicles. Potential cheap repair jobs and abuse. Speak to people who lease their cars and ask about the TLC their vehicles receive. You have to do your due diligence and not just write it off cuz it's a rental...
Although my theory is, if you're going to be buying a minivan, most minivan renters are not hormone-fueled male drivers in their teens/early 20s, or stressed out BMG guys coming back from a bad date...

Agreed. How about buying a used car off someone who bought it brand new?

I've purchased from iCar, and acted on my sister's behalf purchasing from Motti's.  Both wonderful experiences.  I went to Lakewood Auto, while shopping around, and was very happy there, too...they just did not have what I needed.  In my case, Ford E-350 with around 90k, for $8900.  In my sister's, a 05 Sienna, fully loaded with around 100k, for around $10k (IIRC).

+1000 on Lakewood auto sales, Avi is very trustworthy and unlike other dealers (who shall not be named) he takes full responsibility if anything goes wrong with your car.
Disclaimer: NO I did not buy my car from him.
YES, I wish I would have.

I'm looking to buy a used car in Lakewood, have been trying to reach Lakewood auto for 2 days but either get a machine or get told they'll call me back and then they don't. Does anyone have an email address for someone there? Maybe I'll be more successful that way.

Also, who is Motty's? Contact info?

His prices are usually non-negotiable. He has the service and reputation that stands behind him. Rest assured, if you buy from him you are in good hands. They  don't make them any honester than Avi. A real mensch.

I know a dealer who used to work for me years ago, I pay him $200 and go with him to dealer auctions and purchase any car there. There are too many smaller dealers who do this, a quick $200 for doing nothing really. This will be the cheapest way to buy a used car. I got a Maserati 2016 this way, low miles and no problems.

Where these cars from? A lease return? Or a rentals companies cars?

Post by: ludmila on May 01, 2019, 01:33:51 AM
Where these cars from? A lease return? Or a rentals companies cars?
Mostly from new car dealers, moving trade ins and lease returns. This is how the used car dealers  purchase and then mark them up. It is a nice business, to gt a license you need an empty lot with signage and you are in business. And dealers get credit from the dealer auction companies , the longer in business the higher the credit line. Some dealers ship cars overseas, like Russia  and Eastern Europe, Jordan, UAE . Kuwait, UAE and Saudi for e.g were the biggest market for Chevy Caprice back in the seventies till the nineties, all taxis there were Caprice. Dealers here bought them at auction and shipped there, tripling their money.
