Southern Trust Auto Sales here in Port Charlotte is as fair and straight forward as you will find in a dealership! We pride ourselves in giving all the right information about the vehicles. Mister William H below came in the other day. The vehicle he is refering did not have 20% more mileage, it was listed originally with 29,000 miles, because the owner drove it it had 31,161 on it. That is not 20%(not even close), that is less mileage than an oil change. He was given an Autocheck report which is the same as a Carfax promptly in 2 minutes of his arrival as requested, but he made it sound like Autochecks is not a legit report. He had to have a Carfax report only for some reason, even though they are both major history reporting companies. The car had a clear carfax with a buyback guarantee. The vehicle had the front bumper repainted only, it was not "wrecked". He was happy with the condition when he was here. We did not hide anything from Mr. William H-he was given all the information promptly as requested. The car must not have been too bad, he still tried to trade for it and buy it. Customer was more mad that the vehicle he was trading was not worth over retail as he wanted us to pay him.

I normally buy from new car dealers only, but had a hard time recently affording their cars. Figured I would take a chance on an independent used car dealer. Went to Southern Trust and boy did I get the best service I have ever gotten at a dealership. Bought a Mercedes Benz and love it. The perfect car! I am going to refer all my family and friends, and will do all my service with them. I have been looking for a dealership that i can go to repeatedly, and I think I found it. Highly recommended to all reading this!

i discussed a particular vehicle by phone and email. i was told mileage and that had a clean carfax. when i arrived and asked for carfax, they produced something else. i had to ask for carfax 3 times before it was produced. it show that vehicle had previously been wrecked. i then test drove and discovered when i adjusted instrument that it had 20% more miles than had been shwon on carfax or on cars.com.

I don't usually write reviews, but they went above and beyond for me and my wife! Had a bad experience at a local dealer the same day so we were a little hesitant. We were a little undecided on the car, but Derek helped us pick the right car. Actually not a car, it was an SUV. Had some problems with my credit recently but their finance department is GREAT! Got a loan I was comfortable with, and a SUV I love. Thank you for everything-my next car will be from Southern Trust!

Had an overall good, borderline great experience. Looking to buy a Charger RT and found the one I wanted there. Got a great price and the car was just what I was looking for. Paid cash for the vehicle and did alot of shopping online. Price negotiated was something I could not pass up. The only reason it was not 5 star was the car needed cleaned and the person who does that was not there. Had to bring it back for cleaning, but not a big deal. Thank you for everything.

Should have read the comments below first. Went there this weekend. Saw a truck online. When I asked the $ they told me $4K over the price on internet...then they lowered it by $2K. When I said I saw online for $9K they back tracked and said they had 2 of the same here at one point...which I knew was a lie since I had been watching the lot VERY closely. The one I was after was for $9K...they were just CONFUSED!! Um, ok..when I asked the cash price they told me it was $9K. Said they dont make any "deals" for cash buyers...WELL...they didnt make any deals from ME! Bringing my $$ and good credit and getting a vehicle from someone who is honest...if I can ever find that place :(((

After reading other reviews I had mixed emotions about visiting Southern Trust until my I talked to a friend of mine who had been there. This was the BEST experience I have ever had buying a car. I was treated great they even brought the car to my office for me to look at on my lunch break. They gave me a GREAT DEAL I will be back for sure!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have had some credit issues over the last few years and really did not expect for anyone to be able to help me. I took my old car in to see what I could get. I was treated like a real person unlike the dealership across the street. I drove out with a like new 2008 car and my payments were under $300 !
Thanks, TJ, Tony & Chad ! I will be sending you some customers.

I just stopped in to ask where to take my car for service... my check engine light just came on.
I met Joe the service manager, he told me that they could take car of it right there. He had just hired a ASE master tech who found the problem in a mater of minutes with his scanner. Luckily it was just a bad gas cap. I also had my oil changed and wiper blades replaced and my whole bill was under $40,00 ! It only took about 30 to 40 minutes from start to finish. I never even knew they had a service department. I will be buying my wife a new car there after the 1st of the year. I was treated great by the entire staff. Thanks Joe !

I had a great experience dealing with Southern Trust Auto just this past week! I was looking for a specific newer model low-mileage vehicle within a limited price range, but couldn't find exactly what I was looking for at a price I could afford at any of the local dealerships. I spoke with the folks at Southern Trust Auto and within about 2 weeks they were able to come across my "dream" vehicle at a price that was very fair. It was the first pleasant experience I've ever had buying a car!

Traded my vehicle for a newer used car. Of course everyone goes out of there way to sell the car. After the deal is done, buyer beware. Payment on previous loan not made promptly as promised.Phone calls not returned. I would definitely not recommend buying a vehicle from this dealership.

This outfit is really sleazy. They won't tell you what the car costs. They pump you for what you want your payment to be and then set the terms for enough months that they make a bundle on you. Just try to get them to quote you a price for the car. They refuse to do it. Then when they get you into the office to sign the contract, you need to watch everything very carefully. They load the contract up with lots of unnecessary add-on costs just to inflate the amount you have to finance. Always get them to explain exactly what each line item on the contract is, and if you don't understand it or don't want it (which will be every single item on the list), make them delete it. They won't want to, but if you are firm, they will do it. The best way to avoid all of this mess is to buy from a reputable dealer, one who isn't afraid to tell you the price of the car you're buying! Beware!

When I was looking to buy a used car I was on a tight budget. The car that I fell in love with was a few grand over my budget. They were able to work with me and get the payments where I needed them. They helped me get the car that I really wanted instead of being stuck with something that I didn't. Thank you everyone at Southern Trust!

A few days ago, my father and I went looking for a used car. we found the one we liked, the salesmen were very nice and not pushy at all. they were more like friends than salesmen. took the Jeep for a ride, and then we sat down and did all the paperwork fun stuff. The Manager is a great person, he and his employees worked with my father and I with everything, even down to the smallest detail, such as borrowing a screwdriver to remove items from my car. and as far as the last review i read about finance only, that is a load. I payed for my jeep in cash. Southern Trust had no problem whatsoever taking a check to hold until we gave them the cash. Southern Trust and their sales people are some of the best i have had the honor of talking and working with. I suggest if you need a new or used car, go to Southern Trust auto first!!!

My father stopped in here to look at purchasing a vehicle. He wanted to know the cash price of a car and they said they do not sell cars that way. The only way to purchase a vehicle from them is to finance it. They want to make the money off the high interest and will not give you a cash price. This is a rip off any way you look at it! My father was actually thrown off the lot because he kept insisting for a cash price for a car.
