Who the heck am I, what the heck do I know, and why in the heck am I qualified to give car buying tips and car buying advice? You ask...Good questions!
My name is Justin and you can think of me as your car buying guide. I'm currently employed at a large used car dealership in AZ as the General Manager, but have well over a decade of hands on experience working for franchised car dealers in many different forms of management and sales.
My experience, over 15 years, in the car business has moved me from Las Vegas, to Austin, to Phoenix, and other areas around Arizona.
I've held most every retail position in a car dealership including, but not limited to:
and on and on and on...
I'm also a graduate of the College of Automotive Management in Santa Ana, CA and a certified credit and fico score consultant.
I am a sub prime finance manager, at heart, and have to say that anything to do with bad credit auto loans is by far my favorite aspect of this business.
Any questions you have in the area of sub prime financing, I'd be more than glad to help you out. I really enjoy helping people in need, when most car dealerships will turn them away.
Why did I build this website? Well, it actually started out as a hobby and I just wanted to see if car buying tips were something that people were looking for.
As visitors began to write in with questions, I realized that there was quite a bit that I could offer to my visitors and I've now tried to take it to the next level by really honing my Internet marketing skills.
It's very challenging to say the least.
I also built this website as a way to get back at all the car dealerships, car salesmen, sales managers and Finance Mangers that scam customers in this industry; essentially, making my job more difficult.
I don't feel that it's necessary to deceive anyone when selling a car. I've actually found that the repeat and referral business one can receive from being honest and professional translates into ultimately more success in this business.
I personally do not feel that the majority of people in the car business are "scammers," but the ones that do scam, make such a mark, that they create major, negative, national attention.
In addition to trying to right the wrongs in the car business, there are some unscrupulous people online, with websites up that claim to be experts on providing people with car buying tips.
All I see when I read these sites, one in particular, is someone with no knowledge of the car business ranting and raving about car dealer scams, and how they're going to "get you" if you don't use the services offered on his site.
It's just a bunch of hype and scare tactics.
Now, scams do exist in this business, as with many industries, and I've personally seen a lot of them and I have created a section of the site to specifically cover some of the more common scams I've seen.
If this is your first time buying a car, please don't be too scared of scams, there is just too much for a dealership to lose with a bunch of negative media attention and it's just not as common as you might think.
That being said, there are still some rather greedy salesmen and managers out there that might walk up to the line and if necessary cross the line to make a "fat" deal.
All you need to do is follow my car buying tips and my car buying guide and you'll be just fine.
This site is going to be constantly growing and I will be adding to it regularly. You may want to bookmark this site now, not only for your current car buying situation, but for the future and hopefully you'll decide to share with family and friends.
This can be a very intimidating and stressful time (shopping/buying a new vehicle), so please let me help to make this a smooth and easy process while helping you to save a bunch of time and money.
Please do not hesitate to
contact me with any of your car buying questions.
