Went to AJS to check out a car. Although I did not purchase this vehicle, Anthony was very accommodating and honest. Never felt pressured. It was a pleasant experience!

Long term review: I bought an ex Toronto Police Honda Accord V6 from Anthony in summer 2021 and it has since been one of the most reliable cars I have ever owned. Arranging a time to see and buy the car was very easy and the sale was very smooth. When I'm in the market for another used vehicle I'll start with AJS.

The stars are deserved. After some research I found that this family run dealership has had an excellent reputation for many years. My wife and I purchased a car from AJS in Aug/2023. Stephen was very helpful and reviewed the car with us in a honest and pressure free manner, pointing out any issues (which were minor) while we considered the purchase. 5000 km and a couple o

Just bought a used Taurus from them. Even though it was a pain to travel all the way from my home-base to their location, it was well worth it. They were friendly and helpful. They went the extra mile to make sure we were happy with our purchase. They are small, personable and effective. I would buy another car from them in an instant.

Bought a 2013 Nissan Rogue. Anthony and his son were very nice and helped me with the car I wanted and took an extra mile to have all the formalities done and the car delivered as per my timeline. Best car buying experience. Very nice people with exceptional service.

Life is too short. We meet people from all walks of life through our journey and we are all different from eachother; we might meet again or maybe not, who knows...but if we meet the same person again, so let's face eachother with a smile and mutual respect. To AJS Auto Sales goes all the stars.

I purchased a 2016 Honda Accord from AJS autos in December 2022 and I couldn't be happier. Anthony and his sons were very professional and courteous through out our dealings. The vehicle is flawless and I have had no issues so far. Its a great family run business that is honest which is very unusual to find these days.

I recently purchased a Mercedes Sprinter Cargo van from AJS. This family-owned business is run in a very professional manner with friendly and courteous service with fair pricing. Anthony was very knowledgeable, honest and helpful in providing answers to my questions regarding the van. His communication was excellent as he answered my questions promptly through phone, email and text. He made the car buying experience go quick, smooth and effortless. After purchasing the van without a warranty, there was a minor issue that Anthony addressed and was very accommodating to fix the issue in a timely manner to my satisfaction which made me very happy!!! He truly wants his customers to have a great buying experience and enjoy their purchased vehicle!!! Overall my experience was a very positive one right from the beginning from viewing, to test driving the vehicle, to negotiating a fair price and vehicle delivery. I would recommend AJS to anyone ready to buy their next vehicle.

Very great family run business. Anthony was very helpful and caring when it came to the car and making sure that I had the right warranty and that everything was working great with the car. He's a straight up no bs salesman, he called me to reschedule the pickup due to a small part that needed to be replaced, he replaced it and I picked up the car a few days later. Not every salesman would even bring up the broken part, never mind replace it at no extra charge. I definitely recommend this dealership for anyone looking to buy a used car at a good price and great customer service :)
