Welcome to Center Florida Auto Sales! So we have made it our goal to provide Pensacola and the surrounding areas with the best buying experience possible. We understand that finding the perfect combination of quality and affordability can be difficult. but we can help finance whether you have good credit or no credit.
Before purchasing any vehicle from this dealer have it inspected. We bought a 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser for $2892 and afterwards we found it needed approximately $1500 in repairs including replacing a broken motor mount, alignment, new battery and brake rotors, pads, and cylinders for the rear plus some dry rotted hoses. In other words, it is not safe to drive and sits in our driveway awaiting repair as we can afford it. We accepted that it was used and would need some repairs but, wow. And today, the dealer was calling my husband frantically at work because the tag we provided for transfer was in my name instead of my husband's. Today also was the last business day in the 30 days they have to provide us with our title and registration. My husband blindly trusted this dealer because our sons had played together on a church league baseball team. I really wish I could give this dealership zero stars. Pictured is the car we purchased.
Bought a 2014 Hyundai Elantra almost a year ago. They gave me a clean CarFax but didn't tell me there was significant damage to the undercarriage that was not reported to CarFax. The radiator was missing a bottom bracket. The splash shield was missing. Estimated repair was $2700. The mechanic at the time (almost a year ago) must have seen the damage. Talked to the current Manager and he was not in that position when I bought the car. He offered an apology. Buyer beware and check under the car before you purchase.
I received excellent service from The Salesman Sabastian, and the staff. He really went out of his way to get me in the car of my choice. He showed great customer service to me as soon as I entered the building. I would strongly recommend others that are currently looking for a reliable vehicle, also wanting to build your credit, to stop and visit Sabastian and others at J.D. ByRyder. I'm a Very Satisfied Customer.
If you MUST deal with this outfit, have your own financing first, know the real value of the vehicle and be sure to take it to a good mechanic. My daughter authorized ONE credit report search and they helped themselves to so many hits that her score went down 20 points. Their response when she complained: "Well, don't you want a car?". The person who called her back to smoothe things over, quoted her financing at 29%!!! We went to my credit union - Central Credit Union - and she got a 8% loan to buy a car SOMEWHERE ELSE!! Buyer beware of this place! (I only gave them 1 star because I have to choose something to post this review)
What a great place to work. It is so nice to work for a dealership that really cares about it's customers.
love this place they were so helpful. i would recommend them to everybody. Wesley was excellent!!!!!
I couldn't have had better service. My car was really awful and they had it fixed up in no time. 10 out of 10 recommend.
The people that work here ( Dawn and Dave) are the friendliest, most honest people in this town. I wish I had a million people to tell that too.
I have been around a lot of car dealerships and this dealership is really all about taking care of their customers. It is family owned and a great place to buy a vehicle. It is also a great place to work. So the next time you get ready to buy your next vehicle come see me and I will make sure you get treated right and show you that buying a car can be a good experience without all the hassle and haggling. Share with your friends.
