Make Car Buying Fun
Love it or Exchange It
Sometimes you make mistakes, and sometimes we make mistakes. If you do choose to purchase a vehicle from us and change your mind for any reason, you have 72 hours to exchange it for something you'll love.
No Lot Sharks
We Don't Allow Sharks
Most salespeople in our industry get paid a percentage of the dealership profit. Thus, the more they “make” on you the more they keep (We call this “The Sins of Commission”). Our salespeople are salary based with customer service and volume incentives (nothing to do with profit and everything to do with customer service). This allows them to simply focus on YOUR NEEDS and WANTS and NOT on your pocketbook.
Relationships
The Golden Rule
We treat you the way we would want to be treated. The Golden Rule: Do Unto others as you would have them do unto you. Our goal: A fun, successful dealership that makes a difference in the lives of our co-workers, customers and community.

    I went here about three days ago looking for a vehicle, despite my thoughts of it being like every other car dealership I had a phenomenal experience without even walking away with a car. As soon as I entered the door I felt welcomed and I was greeted right away by several people. I enjoyed the fact that I was able to browse through the vehicles before we ever discussed payment. The people that I worked with were very polite and professional but also were very upfront, honest and transparent about the process. I needed a little bit more of a down payment than I had budgeted for but trust me, once I improve my credit a little more I will be visiting car smart for my car buying needs. Thank you to all the wonderful staff I worked with and hopefully we will meet again !

    I really enjoyed working with the people at Car Smart! It is the first time in my life I enjoyed buying a car. Most car dealers just annoy me, but Car Smart really is different. Great people and genuinely fair deals on low mile, late model cars. I recommend it to anyone looking for a good used car.

    Walked in to this business not really looking to buy a car, just to see what they had. Looking around I found Ms Britney. Very pleasant and nice. She asked what I wanted and laughed when I rattled off everything and took me to a car that I didn't come to buy, but did!! Approval was pretty quick. Wish I could've met Ted Heater. Car smart is a very good place to get a car. I give it all stars!! Yes I love my new car!! Thank you!!

    Ted Heater/Car Smart is the real deal!! I didn't have any credit and they got me financed for a car without a co-signor. The process was quick and to the point. No long drawn out process. The cars are affordable, low mileage and new modeled. Thanks Ted Heater/Car Smart!!

    This is my 2nd car with them. The 1st is still going 5 yrs later. These guys show you the respect when others wont due to your credit rating. The sales people are great. When your there you feel like family!

    I really enjoyed buying my first car at Car Smart. Stephanie P. worked out a great deal on a 2014 Dodge Dart and I could not be more happy with it! Thanks will definitely be back for business!!
