Finding a Used Car in Guadalajara Empty Finding a Used Car in Guadalajara

Post by Ezzie on Tue Oct 29, 2013 4:14 pm

I recently had a positive buying experience while searching for a used Jalisco plated vehicle. I narrowed my search down by using the web site www.soloautos.com.mx. This is a site that connects a large number of smaller used car dealers with potential buyers all over Latin America. There are no private sellers on this site so it reduces the chance of wasting your time chasing a "chocolate" or some form of problem vehicle (stolen, etc.). The web site has an "easy-to-use" search engine where you select the make/model and range of age, price, etc. and then click on Jalisco if you want to buy locally.

In my search I found what I was looking for at Seminuevos CarFast which is located in Zapopan at Av. Naciones Unidas 5528. This small dealership is owned and operated by a brother/sister duo who took over the business when their father passed away last Deciembre. The brother (Juan Pablo) speaks excellent English and took great personal care of us and our transaction. He clearly explained the paper trail of the vehicle we were interested in all the way back to the original invoice (factura) including all of the annual Jalisco license fees and taxes that had been paid. He was not pushy and allowed us to have the vehicle taken to an independent 3rd party mechanic for an inspection, test drive, etc. Once we agreed on a fair price, he took care of all of the transfer paperwork and made sure everything was done correctly. On the day we picked up the vehicle, his sister came with us to the bank to help us with the payment transaction which I was very grateful of. This was a challenge in itself if you have ever dealt with the Mexican banking system!!! They even presented us with a nice bottle of wine as an appreciation of our business.

Juan Pablo can be reached at 3070-1010 and specializes in re-selling quality vehicles that the large dealers don't want to put on their lots (due to age or more niche models) as well as "end-of-lease" vehicles. He has another business specializing in small ticket leasing. He also said if he doesn't have what a customer is looking for on his lot, he can try and find it within the dealer network around the city.

Thanks for the Great Info Ezzie.

The telephone number for Juan Pablo, should there be a couple of more numbers?

Thanks again,

If dialing a Guadalajara number from Lakeside, dial 0133 on front of the 8 digits. So it would be 013330701010. If busy, try 013330701111.

We had the recent experience of going to Guadalajara to look at used vehicles with Spencer from S&S Auto. We gave Spencer our wants/needs and a price limit.
Spencer asked the certain salespeople he deals with at the dealerships what they had within our specifications and the salesperson would give Spencer a small list.
Sometimes we found something else on the lot but often the dealer would tell Spencer he wouldn't recommend that vehicle for whatever reason.
So fair warning, just because it's at a dealership doesn't mean it's not a lemon or that it hasn't been misused or in a wreck.

The difference between a used car salesman and a used computer salesman? The used car guy knows when he's lying.

How can you tell when he's lying? When his lips are moving.

And if the used car salesman doesn't do a good enough job of lying, then he/she might have a job opportunity as a real estate agent.

I think you're confusing dishonesty with ignorance.    Very Happy

Isn't ignorance (of the law) what criminals plead just before they tell the judge that they have found Jesus?
