This review is DEFINITELY long over do, but sometimes the hectic events of life can get in the way.  Let me start off by saying I never write reviews but this experience was too good to not tell everyone about.  I have never had a car of my own and waited a really long time to get my dream car, a Mini Cooper.  I have been to a hand full of car dealerships before and all were not good experiences at all.  I decided to look on yelp for reviews about positive car buying experiences.  I saw numerous positive reviews about Ion Cars and more specifically Salem, who works there.

I decided to take a chance and take muni to the car dealership after I got out of class.  I got a little bit turned around, so I called to get directions.  The person who answered the phone was exactly who I was looking for....Salem. He was extremely nice and courteous giving me directions.  I finally made it there and as soon as I walked in we sat down right away and got to work.  I told him that I knew exactly what car I wanted and that I have the money and a pretty good credit score.  He went into his files and found a car that suited ALL of my needs.  It was previously owned with EXTREMELY LOW miles on it.  I couldn't believe it!! I initially didn't get approved from the first lender, but Salem assured me he knew a place that would be able to help me out.  He gave me the name and address of the place I was supposed to go and who to talk to.  I got the approval within the first 5 minutes of sitting down and talking to the bank representative.  All in all my car buying experience with Salem was AWESOME.  It was FABULOUS! And most importantly it was quick, fast, and EASY.  The fact that Salem was so nice and so helpful and respectful will forever leave a lasting impression on me. I will never forget how great of an experience this was....Hopefully in a couple years, they will have the exact car I'm looking for when I decide I am ready to trade this one in.  I can honestly say that if you decide to go to Ion Cars you will NOT be disappointed.  Thank you so much Salem for everything!! From the bottom of my heart, I want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH and I TRULY appreciate your hard work and effort.  If I could give 10 stars, I most definitely would.  Hope this helps!
