we drove by the dealership a few times with the big green sign out front on rivers ave and thought it was a buy here pay here lot. We happened to see a nice looking tahoe one day that seemed like it was too nice to be an on lot financing car so called and inquired. we found out that while they do offer buy here pay here they also have financing for people with all types of credit. While our credit is far from perfect it is fair. they sold us the Tahoe at a price much lower than other ones we had looked at with the same miles and options. they also got us a very low interest rate through one of the local credit unions and a very affordable payment. the salesperson, Tim, was fantastic. he bent over backwards to make sure we were happy. Derrick in the finance office was friendly and explained everything in detail. The entire place had a very laid back low pressure feel to it, not like most of the chain car dealerships we were used to. we were actually a little worried about the price being so low thinking maybe something was wrong with the vehicle but after being provided with a carfax they explained that a big part of the reason their prices are lower is that because they are not a franchise store that they arent having to pay toyota or nissan or anyone else to use theie name and sell their products, this made a lot of sense to us. we would recommend them again in a heartbeat. if you are looking for a car i suggest you try economy cars on rivers ave
Very satisfied across the board...we came in not sure what to expect as we have had some credit issues in the past, but we were treated right from the beginning...most places make you feel like you shouldnt be there just because youve had some issues in the past, i got laid off three years ago and went through some tough times, but it doesnt mean im a scumbag. we went to toyota and basically got thrown out. we were about to go home when we saw this new place with a huge green sign and pulled in. Our salesperson kendale greeted us and made us feel welcome. he didnt treat us any different when we told him we had some credit issues either. they have a huge selection and kendale helped us find a vehicle that was right for our size and money needs. he helped us work payments out that were affordable and made sure we were happy after the sale. we knew we were buying a used vehicle and werent expecting it to be perfect, but the vehicle was clean and reliable and drives great. kendale called us a couple qweeks later just to make sure everything was still going good with it. his managers, derrick, jason and toby all thanked us on the way out. we sent one of our friends there a week later and they bought alos. kendale called me after that and had a check for me for reffering my buddy. overall great experience highly recomend
These folks are not your typical used car dealers. With out going into all of the details of this and other experiences with this business, I highly recommend that you consider them for your next used car purchase. Remember, you are buying a used car, not new. My daughter needed a vehicle and we found what seemed to be a nice one in her price range. After going over the car a few items that needed correction were promptly corrected. Nice. We didn't feel like we were asking too much and they responded in like fashion. Car bought as is, and drove it home. Before we received the permanent tag for the car we had a problem. Large enough to upset my daughter and create second thoughts on my end. Without skipping a beat, Dan stepped up and assured us that he would do the right thing to resolve it. Unlike most dealers presented with the issue we had, he took care of it. He didn't have to, but he did. Something pretty rare with most businesses these days. He could have made his sale and said sorry, too bad for you. I believe that Dan and his crew are looking for future business and they demonstrated the qualities required to earn that. I will buy cars again from this group and recommend them to my friends and you. Frank.
First of all let me shout out to Mike & Kim,who made my car buying experience so relaxing and easy.No pressure,no putting me into something I did not want.When I did see what I wanted they were more than happy to help put me in that car(Lincoln Town Car),and make the payments so I was not over whelmed,and even when I had a problem they took care of it asap.I refer all my friends,and family to them & not because of the $100 referral fee(smile),but because of the experience that I've had.Now I cant speak for any one else,because I've seen the way some people come ,and complain about something all hot headed like its the end of the world.Thats not the way to do things.If you act ghetto you get ghetto.All I can say is that for me and all the other hundreds of satisfied customers Absolute Auto Sales Of Charleston treats us like family.

We all know if you go to a buy here pay here lot you did not have good luck at a Dealership. I bought my truck back in 2006 and I still have it. They were very nice. When the sale of the said vehicle was to be completed they thoroughly went thru everything to be signed. They explained how much the vehicle was and the percentage I was going to pay. Also that I had to keep full coverage insurance until I paid it off. I bought a 99 Chevy truck. I financed it for 24 months. I had to maintain getting oil changes and brakes etc. They were more than fair on prices for me to go to them for repairs ect.. remember you are not buying a new vehicle. So I have no issues with Northwood Automotive. My next vehicle will probably be purchased through them. I am Happy Happy Happy!

ECONOMY CARS HOOKED ME UP....i kept dribing by on rivers seeing these nice cars, chargers and 300's and avalanches and couldnt believe they do on lot financing....we went in and ended up riding out in an 08 magnum with 20 inch rims even though my credit was messed ups...derrick my salesperson tightened me up decent...he worked hard to get us done on the car we liked and the other derrick in finance made it happen...they made it easy and theyve by far got the best looking and riding cars in charleston...big ups
Chris at Southern Motor Company treated me like an old friend, offering me lunch, returning my rented car for me, giving me a car cover (which I'll be returning) just to protect my car seat from a piece of luggage, etc., but more importantly, he treated me extremely fairly on price - showing me evidence of the only $200 profit on my $54k+ purchase. And that only confirmed my country-wide search for this great deal. Couldn't have had a better car buying experience than at Southern Motor Company!
As for Absolute Autos, of North Charleston I did NOT have a bad experience what so ever, I bought a 1995 Mitsubishi, Diamante, over a year ago, I am in sales that car did NOT give me one ounce of trouble, I just traded it in on a 2003 Toyota Corolla here in Augusta, Ga...I would recommend anyone to Absolute Auto Sales.... And YES I would Drive all the way from Augusta GA again to buy a car....
I purchased a nice, pre owned vehicle with a warranty. My credit was terrible but they worked with me and helped me get approved on a vehicle without a cosignor, when nobody else would even try. they treated me with respect and helped me across the board from beginning to end. I have even brought two more people to buy from them asnd they paid me 100 for each one that bought
