Happy to write a review!

When I asked my friends for their best tips on buying a new car, one of them suggested going through AAA and I'm grateful they did. I had already taken a few test drives and knew exactly what I wanted so I sent in an e-mail. Jimmy (AAA) was quick to respond, informative and not at all pushy. I also sent out e-mails to several other dealerships, which were mostly the opposite. After letting Jimmy (AAA) know what I was looking for, he quickly found a match and quoted me a price. When I found a lower price at another dealership he worked with his contacts to match that. Going with AAA from that point was a no-brainer as they were also getting me a great financing rate and delivering the car to my house. The delivery/purchase process was very enjoyable. Johnny and Ray were very friendly and after about 10 ten minutes of looking over the car and 10 minutes of going over forms, I was set. It would be hard to ever go back to the old way of wasting hours inside a dealership showroom. I have already boasted about whole experience to my friends and colleagues and would happily recommend they also deal with AAA for their new car purchase. Feel free to use that as needed and format it to your needs. Thanks, John Knolhoff

Al Martin did a great job. He helped make the process go smooth

Al Martin did a great job. He helped make the process go smooth. I do not usually give exceptional satisfaction, however, I must say - otherwise with Al. He did a great job! He did not rush, made sure I understood everything! As a single woman, it was the best for me. Going to a dealership as a single, is not a pleasant experience. I hope to use AAA Auto Buying in the future and will let my friends know about it also! Jane Connors

What a relief not to have to shop car dealerships!!

What a relief not to have to shop car dealerships!! Thank you for this great service. We didn't know AAA did this, but now that we do, we'll pass the information to our friends. J. R. Ramirez was helpful all the way and a pleasure to work with. He stayed right on it until he found the car we needed, and it didn't take very long. It was such a relief for him to take care of all the paper work for us. The car was delivered right on time and the gentleman who delivered the car explained various things that we needed to know about the car and took us through the paperwork signing and all in an efficient way. Excellent service. Definitely easier than shopping at dealership. Saundra Waxhaw, NC
