The service at AJS is truly amazing. They really care about you and don’t just wanna get cars of the lot. They don’t pressure you to buy and when you do buy they offer you lots of support and information on the car you’re buying. I purchased a 2015 ford Taurus with Anthony and he made the experience very pleasant and smooth. I got a warranty with all the coverage I need to

My experience in buying a used car from AJS Auto Sales was utterly painless. I felt very comfortable with their open and casual family approach. If you have a problem or you need advice, they are very willing to help "steer" you in the right direction. (excuse the pun)

I went in to AJS Auto sales last Monday to look at a Ford Explorer police interceptor. I spoke with Anthony and his son (sorry son bad memory). The test drive was amazing as Anthony does know his stuff in regards to these types of vehicles. I was originally told that my car will be ready on the following Saturday. So I call Thursday just to make sure Saturday is a go. We'll don't they pull a rabbit out and say oh it will actually be ready later today. Delivery went well and the truck looks awesome. It drives very well. Thanks Again Anthony, what a nice experience

Nice family run used car dealership. Had a very good experience buying a used car from them. Low pressure friendly sales atmosphere. When the first car did not work out to purchase for our needs, they called us back later when they got something else similar that did end up working out. We love our new minivan. The price was good with some flexibility which was nice. Came safetied and ready for pickup quickly as well. I would consider them for our automotive needs in the future. First we spoke to Anthony but ended up buying from his son, mom works there as well as I said you can see the family running it.

Recently I traded my vehicle in with AJS for one of their Dodge Chargers. From the moment I called I was met with great customer service. Stephen provided me with very informative and transparent details regarding the vehicle. Stephen also did his best to ensure that the vehicle was in great shape when I picked it up and was very responsive through the whole process. Anthony did a great job in helping finalize the deal resulting in a flawless transaction. I would recommend AJS for their outstanding customer service, honesty and bonus points for being a family run dealership!

Just purchased a 2010 Rav4 from AJS. Stephen and Anthony are great. Everything is smooth and straight forward explained well nothing hidden all up front. Great communication through the process. If you’re like me and dont trust a lot of used car dealers you see selling vehicles then AJS is where you should buy a vehicle from. Great family owned and operated dealer. Will recommend and buy from again. Thanks again Gavin

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.
