I need to find a car that's well on the cheap end of things. I'm not from around here and was wondering what your guys' experiences were with some of the dealerships around here were. Basically who has the reputation of selling a good product, who can be kind of a *****, etc. I thought I'd look here to check some prices and compare them to back home.
I recommend Ames Cars. But then again, I'm biased because I work there. For lower priced cars, most of the stores in Ames are pretty safe quality wise with the exception of some of the back row stuff at George White. If they start to act like ******** or start trying to run you through the grinder, just get up and leave.
We're easy to deal with and are a one price store so you don't have the pressure of being a good haggler - unless you're a Hawkeye fan. Hawkeye fans get charged extra.
George White has a 1988 Volvo 240 priced at about 6x book value right now if you're interested, haha.
Amescars is great. Probably the only interesting inventory that I've seen reasonably priced in town, but I'm biased since I like european cars. I just sold a really nice used car to someone, so you're about a week late.
I'll second the AmesCars. They're ISU guys and easy to talk with.
Secondly, try mightygoodcars.com. They're located in Polk City and have a variety of cars below book value. I've bought on from there as has someone I work with. They have the best deals that I've found (not even close).
