I bought a used Saab 9-7x from Carbiz two weeks ago and I truly wish I had bought all my cars from them. I have dealt with good dealers and bad dealers and these guys stood way above the rest. The dealership itself is clean and well stocked, if I have any complaint it's that sometimes it can take a while to get through to a salesperson; but it was extremely busy when I walked in.
Brian was immediately helpful when I called, he went out of his way to make sure the truck I found online was in the lot and ready. I live 2 hours away and since they had the exact vehicle I wanted he told me not to leave until he "put his hands on the car"; I loved this since I have gone to dealers who have told me they had cars and when I arrive it was either some kind of mistake or a ploy to get me in the door.
Javier was my actual salesperson and he was excellent, he knew everything he needed to know about the vehicle, and when he wasn't sure he found out for me. He went out of his way to be friendly and helpful. I ended up buying the truck and I was given a complimentary 1 month engine and transmission warranty.
The best testament to the service you receive at Carbiz is what happened when a check engine light came on after I took the vehicle home: Javier was concerned and helpful, he told me they would cover the repair give me a loaner if necessary. This amazed me because it was an issue with the fuel tank sensor and since I put so many miles on the truck, it clearly wasn't covered under the warranty that came with it. Contrary to my experiences at other dealers (who sometimes won't even cover things under their warranties) these guys covered a repair outside of the warranty. The same repair was quoted at about $450 at a Saab dealer, I didn't pay a penny, I brought it in, their service staff was helpful and professional, and I drove it home after 3 hours (very quick for the type of work needed!). I don't recommended skipping on the extended warranty, and I will give it more thought in the future, especially now that I know how professional the staff is at Carbiz. I am still blown away by how helpful these guys have been and how great my new-to-me truck is. I hope that I don't have to replace any of my cars anytime soon, but when I do replace or upgrade I will happily drive the 2 hours to Carbiz.
