“Great people with high quality inventory at very fair prices. I met Anthony in the morning and worked with him and Allen as well. Was an easy process and I love my new MB SLK.”

“I must start off by saying.. car shopping sucks when you have bad credit…was looking to buy a corvette.. i have the income but… bad credit history…with that being said i was being turned down left and right.. From bigger franchise dealers..Monza had a 2007 Corvette z06 with only 24k miles….this is a rare find perpid those of you who know cars…they were very friendly and upfront no BS!! Gave me a rock bottom…and it was done from there..or so i thought Alan…had submitted my application and once again got turned down…but with Alan just made a call faught for me and got me approved at the payment and term i wanted…all in all very happy and beyond satisfied..anyone looking for pre-owned rare finds..Monza is the place! Ask for Alan! Tell him Mike with the z06 sent you…. originally posted on Yelp”

“Very straightforward and honest dealers that are easy to work with. After I had already paid for the car, but before I went to pick it up, it started throwing an error code for adaptive headlights. Alan at monza car set me up with a local BMW dealer to get it fixed, paid for everything, and even gave me a loaner car while it was getting worked on. Simple stuff but that’s the kind of thing that a more sleazy place will try to screw you on. Very happy with my used 135i from Monza.”

“Just bought my second car with Monza! I bought a sweet 2003 BMW 330Ci a year ago, bought it cash at a low price for such a clean car, and had a great year driving with the top down! I called Alan back and said Im ready for a 4 door upgrade! He had a beautiful 2013 BMW 328i with red leather interior that rides like a dream, I submitted the online application in a few minutes, then went down there before work and Alan had everything ready. He gave me a great trade in for my little convertible and had me set up with a low interest, no money down loan with an excellent lender. I was driving off the lot in a little over an hour! I love my Bemers and Alan is the man!! If you’re looking for a great deal on a quality car, then give Alan a call!”

“These guys are just straight out bad ass…spoke to Allen at first then showed up and Tom took over from there…got me an amazing monthly payment with the warrenty and gap insurance along with an amazing interest rate! Love my 2 door accord! Btw, everyone here complaining knows to do their homework first on cars especially when buying a “USED” high end/luxury car like a land rover, BMW etc…I am 100% confident that the Honda i got is good to go and in case I missed something, I got the warranty πŸ™‚ anywho, tom and everyone there are very helpful! Thanks again guys!”

“I had programmed http://car.com to alert me when dealers in my area had the car I wanted. I’d been looking for this particular car for quite a while, and I knew the price attached at Monza was a good deal. I drove over on a Saturday (my birthday, in fact) after being alerted that the particular car I wanted was on their lot. I was actually on my way home from Keys Lexus, but that’s another story. When I pulled up, I met Alan. He was incredibly nice. I also met Tom and his brother (two other great guys). After looking at the car, Alan asked me if I wanted to drive it. The guys moved everything around so we could get it out – and before we left, Tom handed me a fistful of quarters for my meter (something he did not have to do). After deciding that I wanted to go have the car inspected, the guys let me drive it over to the mechanic of my choice. By happenstance, my place was closed, so I took the car out to a woodland hills dealership only to find that the previous owner had serviced the car there. After checking the car out, I went back to Monza to write them a check. Tom took an additional hour or so showing me all of my warranty options . He’s incredibly knowledgable and genuine. I got my dream car, and made it home in time for my birthday dinner. These guys are great. It’s been about a month, and I love my car. Thanks, guys,”

“I randomly picked a dealer to get a car for my year in LA and thank god that was Monza. We went there with mom as daddy’s back home and to be honest we know nothing about cars, how things work with government when you buy a car etc. We worked with Alan who was so polite, professional and helpful. He explained every little detail about the car we’re interested in, he explained the buying and registration process again in details. Offered us all the choices, even to give up on his cars and go look for cheaper ones as I’m a student =) He wasn’t pushy at all. He just informed us and left us the rest. He also helped me out with the insurance by sending me to an agency. I really needed that. It’s only been 4 days since I got to United States. If you ever decide to do buisness with Monza Car, go find Alan! You’ll be very happy to do buisness with him.”

“We were moving to L.A. and I wanted to find my wife a classy car. We found this one on http://cars.com and boy was I skeptical of the whole process. I read mixed reviews of Monza on various review sites and became convinced I would be scammed if I moved ahead with this purchase. I WAS WRONG. 1. Alan is an awesome guy, straight shooter all the way. He called me a few times after my initial inquiry, like any good salesman would do. When we decided to go ahead, he got us all the paperwork through email and priority mail promptly and without incident. 2. Alan gladly stored the car for us for 6 WEEKS while we completed our move to LA. Didn’t give us any flak about it. Who does that? And when we finally showed up and saw that this was no sprawling car lot, I couldn’t believe he was so generous. 3. Upon picking up our car, Alan noticed a weak battery (it had been sitting for 6 weeks) and a weak spark plug and replaced them free without question. And gave us refreshments and gave my kids brand new matchbox cars while we waited. I mean really! 4. OK, this is the kicker. Turns out they collected too much $ for the car registration at the time of the sale. What would most car dealers do? Figure out a way to keep it, right? I may have even tried to figure out a way to keep it, if faced with the same situation. NOT MONZA! They sent me a check for the difference (several hundred dollars) unsolicited. This is an honest business without a doubt. We’ve had the car for a month now, no hidden problems, it is exactly what they advertised it as. Thank you Alan and thank you Monza.”

“Recently purchased a 10 yr old BMW from these guys. They couldn’t have been nicer or more helpful even when things got dicey with the credit union taking a long time. Took the car to a BMW mechanic who couldn’t believe what great shape the car is in. When they say they don’t mess around with junk, they mean it. Won’t hesitate to go back next time I’m in the market, these guys rock.”

“I purchased a car via an online ad and worked with them to square away my financing and have the car shipped across the US. I specifically worked with Alan who was extremely attentive and detail oriented. He never left me hanging and always made me feel comfortable that I was purchasing exactly what he illustrated to me. Since I had never seen the car in person, I was nervous, but he eased all of my fears and gave me some great advice regarding financing options, loop holes and potential issues with an out of state purchase and recommendations for shippers. Some of his recommendations certainly weren’t going to earn him a cent or even a referral and yet he still gave me his honest and best advice. When I am purchasing a luxury car, I expect to be treated with a greater amount of respect and given the appropriate amount of attention. As a woman and a professional, I was very pleased. I never had to involve my husband so that someone would listen to me wth respect. I purchased a fantastic car at a very fair price and would highly recommend working with them..especially Alan. ”

“I bought a 2006 MINI Cooper S from Monza Car, and my salesman was Allen, and for once a used car salesmen was honest, very professional and no pressure. Monza Car is truly a one of a kind dealership with near perfect, low mileage cars. If you want a great car buying experience make sure to check out Monza Car in Sherman Oaks.”

“I’d be lying if I said I love going to used car dealerships. But because I’m in the market for a used Porsche Cayenne Turbo and this dealer happen to have one in stock, I really wanted to stop in and test drive the Cayenne they were advertising online. I have to admit Allen the representative that helped my girlfriend and I was a pleasure to work with. Used car salesmen are tough to trust. However he was extremely professional and was never pushy whatsoever. He even went over all the numbers very clearly without any smokes and mirrors. My girlfriend was in the car business previously and Allen even impressed her which believe me is not easy to do. I did not purchase the car I test drove with Allen but I would definitely do business with him if the right car came up without a doubt! Go see him if you see a car on their lot you’re interested in. Good luck car shoppers! ”

“Just bought a fantastic BMW convertable at Monza. The sales person I worked with, Alan, was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. Even as I was leaving the lot, he heard a squeaking in the brakes and told me to take it in to their mechanic and they would pay for it to be fixed. I know I can go back in anytime for help or referral sources. In return, I plan to refer them to everyone I know. Great customer service! ”

“Kiss the slimy, pushy sales guys at the bigger car lots goodbye! Hello Monza Car! These Monza guys are super low pressure, informative and laid back. Basically, the cars sell themselves… and they have some really great cars. They took my trade-in, got me financed and into a new car in less than 2 hours. It was painless. Tom Clark is a stand-up guy. Would buy a car from them again.”

“We just recently purchased a car from this dealer; a mint condition beautifully cared for 2002 Jetta that we are madly in love with. But this review is not about the car – it’s about the service. We’d been on the prowl for a new car for my boyfriend for about 2 weeks. His old car died and we were in dire straits. We’d been to dozens of dealers. The cars were filthy, every used car was somehow magically 15K, we got sales pitches, we got sales threats and taunts (ie. “I thought you were a SERIOUS buyer.”). It was your typical horrible used car buying experience. And so I turned to TrueCar. Firstly, if you’re not using TrueCar then start! TrueCar is known for helping buyers of new cars but they now have a used car tab as well. You’ll actually find reasonably priced used cars and these cars ACTUALLY exist on the lots. Also you will ACTUALLY get a call back from the dealers! If you shop on a rainy day sometimes it takes them only minutes to call you – but I digress. We found the Jetta at Monza through TrueCar and since we were in the neighborhood we did a drive by on them. The lot is small but sure enough the car was there. It was pouring cats and dogs and Bob came out of the office with his umbrella and a friendly hello. Instantly we knew he was different. He wasn’t pushy, there was no sales pitch. He just asked if we wanted him to get the key and then he did. That was it. They pushed an old classic that wouldn’t start out of the way IN THE POURING RAIN to get to the car. He let us test drive and again, there was no sales pitch – he even made me sit in the front in the passenger seat. He didn’t need to position himself to sell. He just let us get a feel for the car. We knew we liked the car and so we headed back to the office to chat. It was the first car we’d driven that day and we had one more vehicle to check out. We let them know our plan to drive this second car down in Santa Monica and instead of freaking out like most car dealers do and panicking to keep us there they just threw gobs and gobs of information at us! About how financing a used car works, how to check to make sure the carfax we are show is the actual carfax on the car. They outed the tricks of other dealers! Asked us to verify a checklist of things on any car we purchased. Explained to us the best structure for our loan based on what we thought our credit scores were. Then we talked about Michigan, Bob’s wife, the fact that all three of his sons work there and now he does too. It turned into a normal conversation and we actually kind of didn’t want to leave. It was amazing. We promised we’d call them either way that night. We test drove the other car down in Santa Monica. The dude was a dick. He was pissed that we didn’t want to buy the filthy Passat he was trying to push and kept hyping features that weren’t features. I emailed Bob from the Passat test drive and told him we hated this car and we were coming back! We had to wait until Monday since this was late Sunday but we called Bob to reinforce that we would be in to buy the car in the morning. To close on the deal probably should have only taken and hour and a half or so… I think we were there 2 1/2-3 hours and mostly because we didn’t want to leave. Bob even put money in my meter but I got him back and put money in his too! We chatted and had a blast of a time. Bob and his son Tom got us a ridiculous rate and set us up with a smart power train warranty, explaining how silly it would be to get a full warranty. They were totally right. They were able to bring our payment in WAY below our desired monthly amount and I was sincerely sad to drive away. We even brought them a bottle of wine and some potted flowers because we were so blown away by their candor and helpfulness. I recently bought a new car and this experience was so good that I wish I hadn’t just so I could have bought MY car from them! I told them I was going to send everyone I knew to them and go crazy on every review site imaginable. I still can’t believe the transaction transpired the way it did. I know I will visit them in the future simply to bring them cookies or brownies or something yummy. It’s just too bad I don’t get up that way more often. I even hugged Bob when we left. Who hugs their used car dealer!?!? A very happy client I guess!! Don’t go anywhere else. Start here… and if they don’t have it on the lot wait for them to find it and buy it from them. Don’t waste your time with any other dealers. Go see Tom and his Poppa Sweet Old Bob (SOB as he calls himself). I’ve never EVER had a better customer experience. Bob, Tom, if you guys are reading this I’ll see you soon! Expect yummy treats!”

“This is how buying a car should work! My gf and I bought a 2008 Mini Cooper S from Tom, who was one of the most professional salesmen I’ve encountered in 15 years of buying cars. While I didn’t get the deal of the century, I got a very FAIR one and the negotiation was smooth and REALLY pleasant. The only reason that this isn’t 5 stars is that the car was missing a key (an expensive one at that), which wasn’t made 100% clear upfront, but kind of my fault for not asking explicitly. It’s too bad they don’t get more Mini’s as I’d rather give Monza my business over any other dealer in the area. Great selection of higher end cars including BMWs, Range Rover, Mercedes, Lotus and other classics. ”

“Wow! These guys got killer cars on their lot and whether you’re a car lover or not, you should at least pay them a visit or bring a friend just to see the cool cars. These folks got a buy, sell, consing, trade gig that seems to be working pretty good because every time I drive by, there are people inside. They’ve got from a 1965 Mercedes Benz 230SL Convertible Roadster to a 2002 Porsche 911 Coupe. ”

“Buying a used car is daunting enough. The very thought makes one’s body tense up in preparation. But my visit to Monza Car in Sherman Oaks, CA was pleasant and professional. We’ve all been backed into the proverbial hard-sell corner by the pushy car salesman, but that is NOT the tactics or approach taken by the people at Monza. They’re straight with you. Because their lot is a small corner location, they don’t carry a huge inventory, but they make up for it with quick turnover and up front staff that does business on the level. We found a good deal at a fair price. Naturally, you have to do your homework ahead of time so you know what the “market will bear” but once you’re armed and ready to sign, they won’t give you the usual song and dance. That was refreshing. We opted to purchase contract cancellation protection, which was extra, but worth every penny for the peace of mind. That way, we had an out if our mechanic found any major fault with the the car, which he inspected after our payment. Monza knows that it isn’t good business to pass along junk cars – gains them nothing for their reputation, so you can be assured that the cars they handle are worth your time. We are happy with our purchase of a Honda 2002, 85K miles car! ”

“Very friendly service, Alan was a great salesperson took care of everything. Monza really does a great job of searching through all the bad cars and picking the cream of the crop. Would definitely recommend them to all in Southern California”

“okay.. I have purchased a ton of cars in the last 13 years. This was by far the best experience I have ever had. When you think that a used car purchase needs to have some negativity involved, think again. I found a 2004 BMW 325i sport package. Great car. Exactly what I was looking for, and I got a very fair deal. Tom was very knowledgeable and straightforward. I would recommend Monza Car to anyone in the market for a used car.”

“I went to Monza to look at a Mini Cooper last weekend. Bob was wonderful, took me out on a test drive in the car, listened to me kvetch about the reasons why I was having to buy a new car, etc. Although I ended up buying my new car from a different dealer, I highly recommend this dealership for their friendliness, professionalism, and follow up. I have already sent a friend over to look at a different car they have on the lot right now… I hope not to have to buy a car again in the next few years, but Monza will be my first stop if I do… ”

“I have purchased many automobiles in my adulthood. All of them were purchased from large dealers. This was the first time I purchased a vehicle from a small dealer. What a difference! The salesman, Alan, let me have the space I needed to access the vehicle I was considering, a 2004 Porsche Cayenne Turbo. I also received some very honest feedback from Tom Clark about the positives and negatives of the vehicle. I was very impressed with their honesty about the vehicle’s condition. Tom even worked to get me an extended warranty that fit my budget and covered the items I had concern about. They even worked out an arrangement to allow me the time to transfer funds at a later date to cover my downpayment without delaying the purchase of the vehicle. Tom even worked for three hours getting banks to compete against one another and get me a very low interest loan. I purchased my vehicle with confidence and after nearly a month and a half later, I am very satisfied with my purchase. I would like to say the following to the people who read negative reviews about Monza Car: all used cars carry a higher degree of risk if you chose to purchase one, especially higher end ones like my Porshce Turbo. I can assure you, Monza Car purchases cars with clean title histories, and often times, like my car, carry a fully documented service history. If you do your homework and understand what you are purchasing, Monza Car can provide you with an excellent used vehicle, and provide you honest, professional feedback about it to help youmake your final decision. I will definitely consider purchasing from them again.”

“Had a great experience trading in our car for another used car at Monza! Like any car purchased from a used car dealer via a trade-in, there is going to be a negotiation process. But it was simple and painless at Monza: A friendly, funny and easy-going representative named Alan laid out what they wanted for their car; we laid out what we wanted for ours. We went back and forth a bit and met pretty close to the middle and ended up paying far less than its Kelley Blue Book value. Can’t argue with that! The whole process took about an hour before we drove off in our new vehicle. We appreciated the experience enough such that we felt inclined to write a glowingly-positive review here on yelp. I could definitely see ourselves doing business with these folks again. We love our car and feel like we got a very fair deal on it! Thanks Monza!”

“In June, I bought a 2002 Porsche from Monza. Bob was very friendly and professional. My experience was very pleasant. I had some reservations about going to a used car dealership. I thought I was going to get Larry from Three’s Company dressed in Ralph Furley clothes. The only thing I wished is that I would have fully inspected the interior. I found a slight tear in the leather but I believe they didn’t know about it either. It was a minor expense. Overall, good service, friendly and they know their stuff. I would go back and will recommend my friends.”

“Great customer service good cars! Yes it is inevitable that all cars will have issues that’s why mechanics exist. It’s a boutique auto dealer. Not the typical. One review said all control arms were broken on an Audi or something to that effect. I’m not understanding how this person didn’t notice this in the drivability of the car unless the previous car was a pinto after a rear end accident. As for the rearview on the beetle. It’s a VW seriously you could have had the dealer inspect it for free I know I have had 3 jettas a gti and a eos. Anyhow they are cool they know about cars they work with you if you have a concern. I have purchased two cars from this boutique car dealer and love both. To think a car wouldn’t have issues is just naive in 1984 I purchased a brand new Toyota camry off the truck at the dealership and bam one week later tranny was shot, VW brand new jetta problems after problems. Nothing and no one is perfect but this place in my opinion is as good as it gets from NYC to California!”

“Overall our experience was outstanding! Alan was friendly, professional, knowledgeable, low pressure, low stress and eager to please. He went out of his way to follow up on our purchase and most importantly LIVED UP TO HIS WORD ON EVERYTHING! Alan is a classy, respectable, professional guy who you can trust. We got a great deal on a used Mercedes E320 that was in excellent condition…so much so that we drove all the way down from San Luis Obispo, CA to purchase and pick it up! We received a copy of their inspection list and all looked good. However, when we discovered a problem with the heater, Alan and Monza Car did everything they could to fix the problem and made sure that we were 100% happy and satisfied with our purchase. We live 200+ miles away so they let us have the heater problem fixed with our local mechanic and paid for 100% of the cost. Now we have a perfect used care that we love and got a great deal on! Monza had a great selection of used luxury cars, and they readily shared vital information about the car before our purchase. Items like their complete inspections and repair report and a free copy of the CarFax are vital pieces of information that all dealers should provide. Our experience with Alan as our saleperson was excellent and we highly recommend that you ask for him personally. He stands by his word and will do whatever it takes to make you happy. Seriously!”

“This was my first attempt to purchase a used auto after 20+ years of owning new cars…. I did NOT end up buying a car from them but I had a great experience from the moment I stepped on to their lot. Bob, the guy I initially spoke on the phone, wasn’t available so another nice guy named Allen helped me with a specialized Mini Cooper I had my eye on for a while. I already knew a lot about the model but I let him do his job and he was very thorough in explaining everything about the car. The test drive was easy and the whole experience was painless and very laid back. They have other great cars on the lot for all price levels. I only wish they could have given me the deal of the century on the car.. ”

“I signed up for Yelp because I had to tell people about my experience here. Four years ago I was looking at a car at Monza and Tom, was very upfront with me about my finances and let me know that it was probably not in my range. He showed me other cars, but I had my heart set on the one so I went to a different dealer. I told him I would come back though because of my overwhelmingly positive experience. Yesterday I went back. Just like last time Tom was patient, courteous, and informative. He had or found all the answers I needed when buying the car. There was absolutely ZERO pressure to buy. He let me test drive two different cars that interested me, walked me through the finance part of it, and closed the deal the same day. All I can say is, I really felt the “neighborhood dealer” difference here and I highly recommend Monza and Tom.”

“Recently purchased a 2009 CLK from Monza. Dealt with Alan. The experience was easy and cooperative. I had wanted the car to have bluetooth and Alan took a lot of time, in my presence, trying to find someone who could add it at their expense. As it turned out, it was really more costly than it was worth to me but he really tried. In addition, I took the car to my mechanic to have checked out. He noted four or five maintenance type issues. I took it back to Monza and they performed them all, at their expense. Finally, the negotiaion for the trade-in for my t-bird was reasonable and easy. Judi, Sherman Oaks”

Amazing experience. I didn’t feel like I was being sold something, it felt like he was showing me what I wanted based on my suggestions. I can’t say enough good things about these guys, this place is going to stay in the family.

My 20 year old son had bought a great used car from these guys & our experience was positive and the sales people were great. I would recommend this car dealership to my friends and family. We drove over 200 miles to get a great car with a fair price from great people!!

I had an excellent experience getting a new (used) car at Monza. I got a good price on a great car, and the sales staff was very friendly and helpful. My brother had a similarly positive experience when he got a car there a few months ago. We’re both very pleased, and would certainly recommend Monza to anyone.

 

Tom Brand

Reputable car dealer. No misleading statements or actions. I bought a used Jag XKRS. The car had been detailed nicely. The sales person (Sammi) was pleasant to deal with. They were knowledgeable (with the caveat that it is a rare car and few would have in depth knowledge). The negotiations with Alan were pleasant, honest and forthright. The paperwork was done efficiently and correctly. I’m leery of most used car dealers, but Monza Car is an exception. I recommend them.

This is the sixth car I have bought in my life and I would have to say that it was the best buying experience I have ever had. I bought a BMW convertible with barely any miles and at a price that was below what I could find else where and on the net. I was referred to Tom by a guy at my gym who had just bought a car there. All there cars are in pristine condition and have low miles. The few little things that were wrong with the car (ie. scuff, a door ding, etc) they fixed. They even put new tires on the front because the ones on there were worn. After I took the car, Tom told me to go over it and if there was anything that he could do to improve it that he would. These guys are NOT the slime ball dealers that I was so used to dealing with. I highly recommend them.

I was very impressed by this dealers honesty. I wanted to trade my car in but I needed to get a certain amount of cash out of the deal and didn’t want to drive over 200 miles to find out I would not be able to walk with the amount of cash I needed after buying the car. So he agreed to let me email all the information on my car to him since it was such a new car (2016 with less than 3500 miles.) After looking at what I sent him he told me that he couldn’t do the deal. Not many dealers would have told me that up front, they would have made me waste my time driving to their dealership knowing they would not do the deal.

Mixed review. Great deal on terrific car.(BMW 335i), but it took the tenacity of a bulldog to get that good deal. Asking price was excellent because the car had been on the lot 133 days. Their initial trade-in offer was laughable, but with tough negotiation they eventually increased it by 90%. Suspect (based on them claiming later that they had not done this) that initial financing offer may have included a half point for the dealer. In fairness it may have been lowered when they found I had an excellent credit rating. Finally, the only key was a remote that some dog had used as a chew toy and would not work. They got me a new remote key at half the wholesale price ($134.50). The ad said the car had a back-up camera but it did not. Crowded lot. Alan (His real name is Ali. Too bad in the current atmosphere he feels he has to Anglicize it.) is a good-natured, easy-going guy who eventually did his best to make it right.

The salesmen were patient, and found the exact car I was looking for – a Mercedes! I highly recommend Monza Car to anyone shopping for a car.

I was a little worried about buying a used car. In the pass I’ve always leased new cars, but my boyfriend convinced me it was better to buy a use one. Monza Car was the second dealership that I went too, and I’m so glad that I did. They have an amazing selections of cars. Including some really cool classic cars. My salesman Alan was so helpful. He showed me several cars because I couldn’t make up my mind. They were all really nice and clean. I finally decided on the 2009 Audi A4. I had already been pre-approved for a car loan from my bank, but Alan said he had several banks and could probability get me a better deal. Sure enough he did. They made the whole process so simple. I’m soooo happy, I LOVE my car and the price!!! I would definitely recommend Monza Car to all my friends. πŸ™‚

I have been buying vehicles from Monza car for years, I have referred many customers. Vehicle are in great condition and lots to attention is paid to details. The fact that you can take the vehicle to a repair shop for inspection tells a lot. Their warranty program comes in very handy if you buy high end vehicle, most of this German cars you take do a repair facility for repairs its $1000.00 so the warranty is highly recommended.it helped us a lot on one of the cars we purchased. We highly recommend this dealer ship.

I’ve been driving by this place for month and finally decided to pull in after I went to Carmax to sell my car. I walked in and was met with a smile. A salesman told me to walk the lot for a few minutes because he had to finish up with another customer which I found was expectable and polite. A few minutes later after they looked at my car, I got a bigger offer then I got from Carmax. Ended up selling my car to them and driving out in a 2010 MBZ CLS with better interest rate that my bank offered. I’m glad I pulled in and now they have a customer for life. Thanks for everything.

Found my wife’s dream car online at this dealership. Emailed the dealership and Alan (from the dealership) called me back right away. Answered all my questions and even went outside with me on the phone and walked around the car telling anything I wanted to know about the car, since I am located 6 hours away from the dealership. Alan held the car for me until my wife and I were able to drive to the dealership and we bought the car on the spot. Processing the paperwork took no time. I am overall very happy with my purchase and the customer service I relieved.

I was looking to buy a used BMW that was in great shape and low on miles from Monza Car. I emailed the dealership late at night and got a quick response back. I was surprised they would email me that late since it was almost midnight. Unfortunately the car was just sold and they were nice about it and said they would keep an eye out for me. They only thing was is I’ve never been to the dealer so I can’t give much info on that. All else good customer service.

Just recently bought a 2008 Honda CRV from Tom @ Monza Car. We hit many dealerships, including the big ones looking for a good deal on a CRV from someone we felt we could trust. After making the rounds and overall feeling nauseous over how slick and hard sell almost every other dealership had been, basically living up to all the stereotypes you would imagine, we decided on Monza for several reasons.
Reasonable price
Quality of the vehicle
Most of all- trust in the dealer Tom.
We had a great experience from beginning to end with our purchase. He also was very patient and calm with what was for us a big purchase & the fear of trusting ANY used car dealer. Tom very simply is a straight shooter who is direct and simply put, a good guy. Will certainly be the 1st place we will return to in the future for our next car purchase.

My husband and I have now both bought Mini Coopers at Monza Car. Not only does Monza have low mileage, used Mini’s that look brand new, at great prices, but they have great customer service. When my husband bought his Mini back in Jan, 2012, it was advertised with cruise control, but ended up not actually having cruise control included. The customer service and concern over this issue that we received from Monza was exceptional. I went back in July 2012 and bought my Mini. We love our cars and will return to Monza in the future.

I recently bought a pre-owned Buick from Monza Car. This dealership is a class act, in terms of both the staff and the cars that are offered. Bob, Tom, and Allan were all very helpful and straightforward. They answered all of my questions and treated me with respect, kindness, and thoroughness. They gave me excellent advice and arranged the financing that I wanted. I recommend them and would not hesitate to return. Since I keep my cars for an average of 15 years, I expect to revisit Monza Car in the year 2026. It will be great to see what they have to offer then–maybe a hydro-helicar that floats and flies and has a chauffeur included!

I couldn be happier with my purchase. Monza did everything to help me out even shopped around for the best interest rate they could find for me. They made the sale easy and smooth. The sales team was not the sort of people that chase you around they were great! I love my new car it a dream car. I would highley recommend anyone and everyone to go down and take a look at the great selection. Low prices for the quality of car you get. I LOVE IT!!! THANK YOU MONZA!

I realize I am a little late to the “Review” board, but could not pass up a chance to let the staff at Monza (Alan) as well as the general public what must be known regarding their inventory, quality, cost, and HONESTY! Yes, you read that right! Never have before done business with such a fantastic company. I plan to continue to return as long as they will have me!

On December 31, 2012, I bought a 2008 Jeep Wrangler X from Monza Car. The buying experience was outstanding. I saw the vehicle on Auto Trader and sent an e-mail requesting more information. I received a reply within hours. I have difficult credit and Monza Car was able to secure financing thru a major lending institution at a competitive rate.

I drove up from San Diego to finalize the purchase and everything was smooth and painless. The vehicle was as described and everything was in place and ready for signatures when I arrived.

The purchase price of the vehicle was well below anything I saw in my month long search and low mileage to boot (50,000 miles on a 2008). They offered a service plan that was half of what I expected to pay and covers the vehicle bumper to bumper, which offers peace of mind.

I would highly recommend Monza Car for anyone looking to purchase a used car. Every car on their lot looked clean, well maintained and of high quality.

Best Used Car Dealer EVER – We just recently purchased a car from this dealer; a mint condition beautifully cared for 2002 Jetta that we are madly in love with. But this review is not about the car – it’s about the service.

We found the Jetta at Monza through TrueCar and since we were in the neighborhood we did a drive by on them. The lot is small but sure enough the car was there. It was pouring cats and dogs and Bob came out of the office with his umbrella and a friendly hello. Instantly we knew he was different. He wasn’t pushy, there was no sales pitch. He just asked if we wanted him to get the key and then he did. That was it. They pushed an old classic that wouldn’t start out of the way IN THE POURING RAIN to get to the car. He let us test drive and again, there was no sales pitch – he even made me sit in the front in the passenger seat. He didn’t need to position himself to sell. He just let us get a feel for the car.

It was the first car we’d driven that day and we had one more vehicle to check out. We let them know our plan to drive this second car down in Santa Monica and instead of freaking out like most car dealers do and panicking to keep us there they just threw gobs and gobs of information at us! About how financing a used car works, how to check to make sure the carfax we are show is the actual carfax on the car. They outed the tricks of other dealers! Asked us to verify a checklist of things on any car we purchased. Explained to us the best structure for our loan based on what we thought our credit scores were. Then we talked about Michigan, Bob’s wife, the fact that all three of his sons work there and now he does too. It turned into a normal conversation and we actually kind of didn’t want to leave. It was amazing. We promised we’d call them either way that night.

We test drove the other car down in Santa Monica. The dude was a dick. He was pissed that we didn’t want to buy the filthy Passat he was trying to push and kept hyping features that weren’t features. I emailed Bob from the Passat test drive and told him we hated this car and we were coming back! We had to wait until Monday since this was late Sunday but we called Bob to reinforce that we would be in to buy the car in the morning.

To close on the deal probably should have only taken and hour and a half or so… I think we were there 2 1/2-3 hours and mostly because we didn’t want to leave. Bob even put money in my meter but I got him back and put money in his too! We chatted and had a blast of a time. Bob and his son Tom got us a ridiculous rate and set us up with a smart power train warranty, explaining how silly it would be to get a full warranty. They were totally right. They were able to bring our payment in WAY below our desired monthly amount and I was sincerely sad to drive away. We even brought them a bottle of wine and some potted flowers because we were so blown away by their candor and helpfulness. I recently bought a new car and this experience was so good that I wish I hadn’t just so I could have bought MY car from them! I told them I was going to send everyone I knew to them and go crazy on every review site imaginable. I still can’t believe the transaction transpired the way it did. I even hugged Bob when we left. Who hugs their used car dealer!?!? A very happy client I guess!!

Don’t go anywhere else. Start here… and if they don’t have it on the lot wait for them to find it and buy it from them.

Monza Staff – Monza car staff was very friendly, helpful and easy to deal with. My experience starting from the first conversation over the phone until arriving at the dealership a week later. Allen, very pleasant to talk to and was able to meet my needs as expressed in the very beginning. During my visit I had the pleasure of meeting other staff and they too very pleasant and friendly. My experience overall at Monza was GREAT. Thanks to all of you especially to Tom and Allen for assisting with me with purchasing my 2007 Triple White Volkswagen.

Great Service! Great Price – These guys were awesome! I looked around forever before I found the perfect Jaguar XK8 Convertible at Monza Car. I was greeted by Alan who is very knowledgeable and helpful when it came to the Jaguar brand.

The transaction was smooth and there was no run around. They have great financing and the car I bought is just plain beautiful. They have a great variety of cars and some special ones too.

I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for their next ride!

Thank You Monza Car

Long Distance – Excellent Experience! – I just purchased a Corvette from Alan at Monza Car and it was worth it. Living in Vegas, I was searching high and low to find just the right car without any luck. I came across their listing through the internet and flew out to see it, something I would generally never consider doing. After meeting Alan and the rest of the staff and seeing the lot I could tell that this was my kind of dealer. They are all very nice people and the cars on their lot are well looked after. No regrets whatsoever and next time I’m in the market for a car I will consider their inventory.
