I just bought a nice 4X4 from these guys. I'm 70 years old and have been a car nut since I was about 14 years old. I've owned over 30 cars in my lifetime so I' ve delt with a lot of car lots. Sea-Auto Sales is by far the best. These guys are definitely in business to make a profit but I bought my truck at a fair price and after minor haggling got a fair price for my trade-in. Mark reduced the price of a lot of those hidden fee charges you don't know are negotiable. They got to me a bit on optional insurance but dude, if you're looking to buy a car at wholesale get a dealers license and go to the auction. Mark the sales manager is best described as a honest gentleman, He is extremely anxious to please. OK, the salesmen are nothing to brag about. One of them was a little on the arrogant side and all of them from the point of view of an old man are kids. Taking care of a customer - I'm disabled so I needed side steps installed on the truck. They agreed to install them for free if I would buy them. I took the steps to the dealership and waited in the lobby for the job to be done. After a while Mark came out and apologized for taking so long. He said the mechanic was taking his time, locating and marking up on the truck where the steps should be placed. A while later Mark came out again and apologized for taking so long. The mechanic decided he wasn't thrilled with the frame thickness where the steps would go. He was cutting out extra metal to reinforce the frame. That my friends is above and beyond the call of duty. Most mechanics would never dream of doing extra work they wouldn't get paid for. What about future work? We didn't agree to any specific numbers but Mark understands I live on fixed income and has promised to do ANY repairs I need at a price I can afford. Overall I've got to say again the dealership is, in my opinion, the best you're going to find in the NW.

I spent 10k on a car here even though it was only worth 8k something and they refused to budge on the price cause it was a popular enough car they knew if I didn't buy some other smuck would. That's my own fault cause it was the car I wanted. I couldn't take it to my mechanic before purchase because they had a "5 mile radius" rule (which is interesting to read on yahoo that someone had taken a long 5 plus hour something test drive) again, that's my own fault for still buying without my mechanic checking it out, would have been nice to have the option. Anyway, took it to my mechanic 3 days later, first chance I had and it needed a full timing belt job done. My mechanic, who is a certified VW mechanic at a VW shop who does use true OEM parts, quoted me 700. All this dealership said they would do is repair it "at cost". Sweet, thanks what a bargain, how much is it at cost and no labor? 600? Interesting. How was my mechanic only 700 with 70 an hour labor and 15% mark up on parts (genuine vw parts at that)? LIARS. I didn't go to them for the repair because I didn't trust their promise of genuine vw parts or that they'd even do it correctly. Thankfully, my mechanic did the work to find that the breather system was leaking and needs to be replaced (there's another 700-800 dollars) which I have to hold off on considering I just bought this car a week ago and already spent a total of 950 in repairs and have driven it a total of 4 days. But what else did my mechanic find? An oil leak on the front cam cap that was glued shut with a ridiculous amount of silicone and the cam
Adjuster was clogged with silicone so they had to clean all this out and fix eveything properly. Who knows if that was the previous owner or a shop they took it too but it's doubtful. What mechanic would "repair" something that way? And I doubt any car owner would do a half assed job like that on their own expensive car. Would a dealership wanting to already make a few grand more then what the cars worth hide these expensive repairs to avoid the cost? Wouldn't put it passed them. I even explained to them that I had been screwed over by a dealership before and they kept assuring me that this car was in almost perfect condition and flawless. When confronted with what I found, they let me know they only do a safety test on their cars and check the fluids. This place is a zoo. Already proven unreliable and untrustworthy and they certainly don't have any integrity. It's all about money, not building a
Clientele or making people happy. Makes me think they're saleman attitude has taken over any humanity they have. I couldn't live with myself knowing I was screwing people over so terribly, especially someone in my case explaining that I just want a decent car cause I was screwed before. And they sell me a car I couldn't even drive without dropping another thousand. That's not even it. Got another 700-800 to spend and I'll have to replace the clutch in about 10k miles which is over a grand. You might get lucky doing business here if you end up with a decent car, but don't plan on it. They make it sound like they're all well taken care of and good to go but they're lying to you and just want to take your money. To be safe, just take the price of whatever car you want to buy here and add at least 3k to that price cause that's most likely at least what you'll have to put into the car. I will never recommend this place to anyone

To whom it may concern:
After reviewing the inspection and car fax reports Sea-Auto provided, I decided to purchase my car (02 BMW M3 for $22k). The inspections showed that the car was in safe, drivable condition. The car arrived in very poor condition: I was both misled and lied to by the dealer, Sea Auto Sales. The inspection reports they provided were completely inaccurate and/or falsified. After bringing the car my local Auto Dealer, they revealed a massive amount of issues. The car not only had unsafe, bald tires, but came with taillight malfunctions, broken headlight components, cracked belts, and oil leaks. It was repainted white, while the VIN number shows Carbon Black. It was also missing all safety components including jack, tire iron, and a spare tire/wheel. The dealer refused to pay for any of the issues after months of arguing with them. The fact of the matter is that the car was delivered in an unsafe, far less than acceptable condition, and will not pass inspection without many of the issues fixed. It is not even street-legal without working head and tail lights. Who delivers a car this way? My local dealer estimates over $5000 in repairs, $1500 of which I have already done. Any reputable dealer should be sure a car will be fit for ordinary driving purposes, reasonably safe, without major defects, and of the average quality of similar cars which are generally available for sale in the same price range. Mine was not. During repairs, I've found that expensive lighting components (headlight ballast and igniter) marked "BAD" in permanent marker were re-installed in the car. The brake lights also have fried circuitry and were hanging out of the trunk on arrival (the brake lights do not operate when the headlights are on - this is dangerous and illegal!). The tires were completely bald on the insides from poor alignment, and the wheels had curb marks on them when I was specifically told they were not. When I mentioned returning the car or trying to get some reimbursement, they laughed. If you are thinking of purchasing a car from them, I might try somewhere else if I were you - lesson learned!

Recently bought a 2004 Audi S4 from these guys. Worked with a sales man name Vitaly, great guy to work with. They helped me with getting me financed, even though i have bad credit. Also they threw in a 3 month 3k miles warranty. 5 stars!!!

My husband and I bought a car here last Saturday around noon and by 5:00 it was on a tow truck Back to the dealer. When I called the manager to let him know it had broke down in the middle of the street he said "well, you bought it as is" and "you said your son was learning to drive a manual maybe he did something to it" when I said we wanted to tow it back to the dealership he. Said "we close in 30 minutes", after a few choice words he promised to stay open till it got there. The tow cost us $180.00. He called Monday to say it was fixed and would cost $220.00, after telling my husband they would take care of it, according to them this was a bargain as they were giving us wholesale prices! We could not believe it and refused to pay because they didn't call us first to authorize repairs. They then said we didn't need to pay and the damage was all caused by my son flipping a toggle switch! The car Is running but horribly we took it to a shop that specializes in subarus with turbo, it's going to cost $1700.00 to get it running correctly. They advertised this car as mechanically sound, what a joke. We have purchased many cars in our lifetime and have never had such a horrible experience. We paid $9,000 for this 2002 wrx.

Well...I was looking to trade-in my vehicle here, but after a brief conversation with the sales man and manager, I knew they were not just another used car dealership, they are WORST! No matter what you say, or facts you have researched, they will refute! Bottom line, do not waste time with this type of business.

I purchased a 2004 VW Jetta 1.8T on 11.8.10 after my civic si was stolen. When I purchased the car it looked clean and seemed to be almost perfect condition. When I picked the car up on 11.12.10 I asked the sales rep for service records so I could have record of what services the mechanic did but they didn??t have any records since they "trusted" the mechanic. I know I should of asked for this before buying the car but they told me they checked the car out and fixed anything that needed to be fixed. About 50 miles after picking up the car the check engine light came on. I took it to shucks to find out it was the rear oxygen censor. I called Sea-Auto sales and let them know which they told me those things are not inspected and wouldn??t cover the cost since they only cover issues with the car running. When I took the car to my mechanic I found out that the gaskets were leaking oil, some temp sensors were out, locks were going bad, cylinders were misfiring, the battery was practically dead and the positive cable on the battery was clamped on vrs bolted and found out a engine tube was patched and clamped instead of replaced. I contacted Sea Auto and complained that these things should have been resolved before the car was even on the lot. The sales rep said he would try and defend me but when I called about a bounced check they sent me I asked again and the sales rep said the owner would only offer that I fix the issues at their mechanic at wholesale price. I told them I would report them and they said do whatever I want since I bought the car as is. Be aware to check every record, take to another mechanic regardless of when they say they did. I have learned allot from this and am still paying for it. I will never do business with them again.

Do not buy a car here. They are dishonest, nothing like their website describes, and are very much the stereotypical slime ball car salesmen. They sell wrecked cars and lie about the real state that the car is in. They were also very dishonest about the terms of my loan. When confronted they said they would do anything to "make it right"... sorry, you can't turn back time, and you've lost my trust. Will never do business here again.

My wife and I just bought a truck from these guys. Haven't had a problem with the truck yet, but the bank told the manager that they had done the paperwork wrong and needed the paperwork re-done. The manager begged us to drive back to fix it instead of mailing the stuff. He said the bank wouldn't pay him until the new paperwork was filled out. We live a hundred miles away and have to travel through Tacoma AND Seattle traffic both there and back. The guy said he was SO sorry and promised to make it right via money for travel/time/gas costs if we would help him get paid without waiting for the mail. Feeling bad for the guy we agree to this. The trip back consisted of my wife and I driving 3 hours each way (6 hrs total) over 200 miles and eating both breakfast and lunch on the road ($30 for food) not to mention the hastle of sitting in Tacoma and Seattle gridlock all day. His firm evaluation/payment for our time/travel/gas/expenses when we went so far out of our way to help him out = Twenty dollars total.

I hadn't even haggled over the price of the vehicle.
