I hate the idea of getting a used car. When people say, "when you buy a used car you also buy other people's problems," they are so right. I have had the WORST luck with used cars. However, my son needed to get some wheels for work and college. With a limited budget we were off looking for a used car. . .sigh. We live in South Toledo so there are many little buy here, pay here lots. Nothing, just junk. We drove into Rose City Motors. The key word is drove, because the cars they offered were way over priced, and bigger pieces of junk than the small buy here, pay here lots we had gone through. However, right past Rose City Motors we noticed a small lot with several nice looking PT Cruisers. We stopped in. All the cars looked sharp, with great sticker prices. . .but the lot was closed with a sign that said Opened on Thurs. only?? We jotted the number down. I called on a Wednesday just to see if I would get a pick up. . .I did. Henry answered with his more than hospitable voice. He said he had other lots (one on Tramainsville. He is retired and selling cars was one of many things he did. As far as the hours. . .just call him. The man is incredible, he will do his best to meet with you when you want, no matter the day. In fact, Henry was out at the Reynolds Rd. lot with us every time we asked. We decided on another one of his vehicles that he had, but again, all the cars looked to be in great shape. . .most within the 100-130K mileage. Next step: I told my son not to get too excited. We have looked and had several cars checked by an independent mechanic. . .lemons. So off to the mechanic we went . The mechanic who knows me by now (Walt's Auto World), gave a big sigh when he saw me AGAIN. Another inspection to wait out. Walt came out with a surprised look on his face. . .literally. He said the car looked great (I needed new front rotors only). No leaks, nothing. Great car, and quickly asked where I got it. As far as Henry, just a great guy with an abundance of laughs, and a positive attitude on life. By the time you are done meeting with him, you secretly wish he would jot your number down in case he and his wife want to meet up with you and your spouse (I imagine his wife has to be just as much of a riot). Anyway, good guy. . .great cars. . .awesome prices. It's worth looking into really. Thank you Henry.

CJ's Auto Store is the best place to go if you are in need of a vehicle. Larry and Jason were the BEST!! They treated me like a real person and were interested in my needs instead of seeing my as a dollar sign (like Rose City Motors). CJ's will get you approved for a vehicle even with bad credit, and they work very hard to find you the vehicle you want (even if they don't have it in their inventory). They found me a 2006 Mercury Mountaineer with lower mileage and at a GREAT price compared to most other dealers. The vehicle runs great, it looks great, and i'm so excited that I found CJ's Auto to help me. They are very honest and trustworthy compared to most dealers, and they were very prompt with getting back to me with details and answering my questions. I live in Michigan and drove from an hour away to buy the vehicle. Out of all the places I had dealt with CJ's Auto is the best and well worth the drive. I'm telling all of my family, friends, and co-workers about CJ's Auto Store. Just thought I would also share my happiness online for any of the rest of you that are looking for a great place to go. Call CJ's Auto Store I'm positive you will be happy when your done!!
What I loved most about this place was how low pressure it was, how fairly the cars were priced, and the helpful nature of the folks who worked there. Peter greeted me and allowed me to browse the lot without hovering which was great. I really liked that you can pull up the carfax reports from the website...most of what I saw were low mileage, one owner lease returns. I was interested in a Subaru that ended up being way in the back of the lot but four cars were moved just so I could take it for a spin. I loved it!! We agreed on price and the paperwork took what only felt like 30 minutes and had no surprises. Could not recommend these guys more!
