Enterprise Car Sales

October 26, 2017

When we had our car totaled 2 weeks ago, our Credit Union rep recommended starting our used car search at Enterprise Car Sales. A Division of Enterprise Rent a Car, here they sell their used vehicles at below market prices.

I had my doubts, but did a bit of research and learned that all vehicles are inspected and Certified by AAA or an ASE-certified technician. Many of these low-mileage vehicles have remaining factory warranty coverage and are also backed by their 12-month/12,000-mile limited powertrain warranty. Plus their vehicles at Enterprise Rent-A-Car spend an average of 12 months in the rental fleet receiving regular maintenance, (based on manufacturing guidelines). They’re cleaned after every use and there is no price haggling, which if you’ve been through haggling at a dealership you know how exhausting that is.

So we went to the Pasadena location where I saw a good selection of cars Toyota, Lexus, Hyundai, Ford, Dodge, Nissan, Chrysler, Chevorlet, Honda, Jeep, Kia, Cadillac, Jeep and more.

We were met in the lot by a well informed sales person who let us test drive over 8 cars.
Each was priced, if not hundreds below market, but at thousands. The highlight was the 2015 Toyota Prius 3 for $17,000 with 35,000 miles on it. With it’s premium options and leather seats, the Market value is $21,000+. At least a 3 thousand dollar savings!! That got our attention.

We really liked the fact that the cars here are Certified Used Vehicles and have been well maintained. There was no pressure sales tactics or haggling and we loved their 7 day buyback agreement. But I cautiously, still wanted to look around.

When we called back the next day to say we’d take the Prius it had sold. Phewy. But they will call you when the car you want becomes available again and will check to see if that car is anywhere in their sales inventory. Sweet.

Enterprise Car Sales has several locations in Southern California in Pasadena, Los Angeles, Reseda, Gardena, Long Beach, Montclair, Huntington Beach, Bloomington and Orange

You can learn more at EnterpriseCarSales.com as well as search their inventory

Enterprise Car Sales does offer financing and will take trade ins. But I can’t speak to that experience since our previous car was totaled and we were already financed.

Like all car buying, you must do a lot of homework before you shop and use your smart phone while you’re looking to see comparison prices on the models you like.
