Purchased: 2008 Honda Fit Sport Date: 7/3/17 From: John at Ft. Pierce lot I would definitely buy from this company again. I'm a pretty skeptical person when it comes to car salesmen. Most of my interactions with car salesmen in the past have been very negative: it is a pet peeve of mine when a car salesmen attempts to oversell and/or pressure me into buying a car and I have walked off a few lots in the past because of salesmen. What impressed me about Palm Tree Auto Sales was John's no-pressure attitude about selling me a car. He answered my questions, let me spend all the time I wanted inspecting the car, and gave me a great deal because this company keeps their dealer fees low. He was also very helpful with a tricky registration and tag process, but he helped me work it out so that it was simple and easy for me. I bought the car on 7/3/17 and I've owned it for 3 months now. I know it's not that long in the grand scheme of a car's life. However, I've had no problems with it. My wife and I just drove it from FL to WI and back and it ran superbly. I had my mechanic give it a full inspection prior to going on the trip and found no problems (this tells me it was previously well taken care of and that the people at Palm Tree did a good job making sure this car was sale-ready). I drive it almost daily as my commuter car and am very impressed with it overall. Palm Tree Auto Sales is, in my experience and opinion, an excellent dealer with low fees. I never got the run-around. John was professional, helpful, not overbearing, and was genuinely nice in my interaction with him. *Note to car buyers: I believe research is key when looking to buy a car. The consumer should know just as much, if not more than the seller, about the model of car one is looking to buy: especially the strengths and weaknesses of different makes and models. So, do your due diligence. This is your responsibility as a consumer. You should know enough to never let anyone talk you into buying something that makes you uncomfortable. There are thousands of cars for sale out there. Don't necessarily settle for the first one. Educate yourself by using the internet: it's your friend.

I've purchased a car before from this dealership and was very satisfied with the service and sales person, on this occasion didn't find anything I wanted. The sales person was very helpful and I will be back again.

I recently had the daunting task of buying a vehicle as my lease return is up. Husband and I decided pre owned is the way to go. So that brought me into the hands of Scott. Fyi I did this while my husband was away working so that was scary. Scott was forth coming with information, walked me through the process and landed me on the right vehicle for my family. His sweet personality and patience made a huge difference. Fast easy process. I recommend Palm Tree for sure. I love my new Jeep! We need a 2nd car in a few months hopefully they have a wrangler so we can be a Jeep family so hubby and I can out to beach with a soft top. Who would have thought?

I'd refer Palm Tree Auto to anyone looking to find a truly unique car buying experience. You inspire trust by listening to what your customers need and providing excellent service. Anthony, John & Lisa, thank you again, you are wonderful!

Great service, wasn't pushed to buy a vehicle, got to look at all the the vehicles that I was interested in and not steered to something I did not want , sales rep didn't follow me around the car lot , they left me be and let me make my own choice about the vehicle I wanted to purchase . Look forward to purchasing another vehicle in the future.

What a great family run company that works to make their customers happy.

Dealer was very nice and answered all my questions. Truck was a good deal and in very nice condition for the miles.

I just moved to Florida from an Island and I thought this process would be time consuming and a hassle. Well John made this process so easy, from looking for a car online, to driving it off the lot it was such a great experience. I got a great car in excellent condition for a phenomenal price. My wife will be joining me in a few weeks and we will definitely be coming back to get another car from Palm Tree Auto Sales. So if you are in the market for a car I would recommend Palm Tree Auto!!!!

Excellent service, thank you John for going the extra mile! My 2008 mustang is a very nice car, and I'm looking forward to cruising!

Anthony and Scott were very professional. They listened to my requirements and found the perfect car for me they were reasonable and work  within my budget. I would recommend them to anybody.

 The guys at Palm Tree Auto helped me find my perfect truck! They gave great advice and took the time to listen to what I needed for work and a daily driver truck. They also helped me find the perfect tires at their service center and never rushed me when I had questions about any part in the buying process or updates I wanted to make to the truck. They really care about their customers like no other dealership I have ever done business with. I would recommend anyone looking for a good used vehicle of any kind to check them out first. You won't be sorry.

Nicole Froehlich - - (posted on Google March 2017) -

After purchasing the truck we had some minor issues with the idling, as the truck isn't brand new that's to be expected. Lisa, one of the owners, called me and invited me back to repair and didn't charge me. This place cares a lot about how you are treated and goes out of their way to make you comfortable. I truly feel so happy that I chose to go with this company. We had looked at several local dealerships and we found our new favorite place.

From my experiences, I found that "Insurance-sales-person, Auto-sales-person, and Stock-brokers" are the least trustworthy sales based on what they are saying. Despite my prejudice against an auto-sales, Jacob at Palm Tree Auto Sales (Fort Pierce) totally changed my mind. I can fully trust this man and I even want to become a friend with him. His sales principles are clear and simple with upfront best price vs. market and a minimum dealer fee. Thereby, he makes only small margin but he does "economy of scale" (ie. selling a lot of cars with small margin). In other words, I believe he will not rip you off. I am more than 100% satisfied with my recent purchase of Chrysler 200. I definitely recommend Jacob if you are looking for a satisfying experience of purchasing a car.

Palm Tree Auto Sales and Service rises above it's competitors, in every aspect of their retail model. Having purchased/traded a few autos, ongoing oil changes, and frequently dropping in for this and that, eg, why does this light go on, which button should I push for this problem? Never too busy or incapable of attacking the problem. As a family business, this second generation of offspring, seem, without effort, to have easily adapted to the "old world" business style. Their continual and overall approach to customer interaction, simply supercedes one's expectations. A myriad of descriptive adjectives clearly apply. They include honesty, integrity, fairness, kindness and assistance above and beyond, in an environment of warmth, familiarity and comfort. So, drop in for whatever your auto need might be, enjoy a cup of joe, chat and be delighted.

I was referred to Palm Tree Auto Sales, from another car dealer, after going through a bad experience somewhere else. My friend highly recommend to talk to John. He was very kind , and said he could help me to come on in! I went on the website, found a few things to test drive, did my application online, Scott called with in the hour and I told him what I wanted to drive, by the time we got there the Honda CRV was on , ac cold and ready for a spin. That was it! The staff is great, nice clean cars, low miles great prices and honest people who care about putting people in safe vehicles ! I have shared with my friends, best place to go on the treasure coast in Stuart. Lisa even gave a courtesy call to see how much we like it. Honest, great quality vehicles, quick service, we were in and out in an hour, can't wait to get my next ride from them! Thank you

I bought a 2005 Toyota corolla s and it was my very first car to own. I was very happy with the service that Scott gave me when showing me my options to choose from and also helping getting a good insurance company after trying so many insurance companies. I am completely satisfied with both the car and the service from Palm tree auto sales!

Jay & Debra Lonky - - (posted on Facebook June 22, 2016) -

We needed a new vehicle and had previously bought one from Palm Tree Auto. We then had received excellent service and help from the personnel. They put me in a Nissan Altima 2010 with low mileage..Once again I had excellent service and a rewarding experience with Palm Tree Auto Sales. We highly recommend Palm Tree Auto Sales for the purchase of a vehicle..You will have an excellent experience with this family owned business.

Friendly and courteous, you made me feel comfortable and at ease with my new to me Toyota! She rides like a dream! I cannot thank you enough. I will definitely be back for my next car purchase.

Awesome dealership, I have purchased many cars from car dealerships in my lifetime and I have to say this was the smoothest no hassle experience I have ever dealt with, Scott and the staff were friendly, respectful courteous, I drove 80 miles to finally find the vehicle I was looking for and got the deal done quickly. Its was a pleasure dealing with Palm Tree Auto Sales. Would definitely recommend this dealership.

Needed a vehicle asap, my 94 Ford explorer died so I called John at Palm tree. My credit is horrible, but he got me financed. I thought that would never happen, but he helped me so much. I was able to get a 2012 smart car, which I love. I highly recommend Palm tree auto, and John. thank you

The two things in life right now that I never like to do is buy a car or a house. I needed a car and I knew I was going to have to shop for one, I had always seen palm tree auto sales when I would pass by and wondered how good there service was, Well I went to there website looked at some cars then found what I wanted, turns out they had 2 honda crvs I chose the one newer 2006 one owner fantastic car I met with Scott and discussed the details, I drove the car. Then I came back the next day or so and bought it. It was so smooth of a transaction i was just amazed at how well Scott took care of me answered all my questions, found the right payment and a warranty too and made it the best experience I have ever had in buying a used car! I love my crv and I do intend to do more business with palm tree, they make car buying smooth and stress free.

I have purchased 2 cars here in 3 years. If your in the market for a car I would not waste time anywhere else. Great place to do business. I had horrid credit the first time through the doors and John got me a loan with a smile and a handshake I fixed my credit and now a few years later I came back to do it all again! Also try the service building right next door. Same family, Same service, Same great experience!

Dave T. - - (posted May 28, 2015 on Yelp) -

I bought a car here yesterday and I couldn't be happier. Scott was very helpful and I feel like I got a great deal on a used car. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Dave Tripp - - - (posted July 2015 on Google+)

Best car buying experience ever. Scott was very helpful and the whole process was flawless. I have recommended Palm Tree Auto to friends and family, and I wouldn't hesitate to buy from them again in the future.

Great people. Very accommodating. Will work hard to get the right vehicle for you and your situation. Highly recommend.

Rose Miller - (posted on Facebook Oct. 2, 2015 )

I just bought my car from them. John was awesome and helped me get the financing for my car. I had no credit and still drove off in my dream car. If your looking for a great deal and amazing customer service call up John.

Great service and staff!! Finally a auto dealership that makes you feel like family!

My wife and I just lost our house on Oct 24, 2014. Our credit is crap and we moved to Stuart. I've been wanting to buy a car from Palm Tree Auto but never had a good down payment. He managed to get me into a 2008 Toyota Sienna LE and the van is amazing. The only thing I did was put tires on it, which it could have waited about 10,000 miles but my wife drives a lot. This is the most reputable place I found in the area and John was patient and didn't force you to buy anything. Most car owners / salesmen, will force or push you into a vehicle so they can get paid. John never did that and I highly recommend him to any of my friends and family. Even with bad credit, John was able to get me financed at a price I wanted to be at. Not only is he my new car dealership, he's also my new garage I will take my cars to. One stop shop when dealing with John. Check him out, you won't be disappointed.

I have now bought 2 cars from Palm Tree. They give me hope that there truly is a chance that not all car dealers are scumbags. These guys are full of heart and Honestly looking out for those who have been taken advantage of at other dealerships. I swear I heard angels singing as we signed the papers to seal the deal (#2).. HIGHLY recommend!!

Amber Ducote - - (posted Sept. 26, 2014 on Google+) -

Amazing, amazing, amazing service! I had a small budget when I sought out a van to purchase for a non-profit. I gave them my budget and within just a day or two, they had 3 fantastic options to choose from. We chose our favorite and they were incredibly thorough in making sure it was in great shape and worthy of our purchase. They were personal, professional, timely. You feel as though you are their only customer. Everything you would want but rarely find in a car dealership.

Palm Tree Auto has a well-deserved reputation as an honest business. We have bought three cars there and have always been treated fairly. The Compagno family also runs an honest repair facility at that location.

Melissa Buys - 2005 Dodge Stratus SXT Coupe (emailed to us July 2014)

Please post this to your customer reviews: YOU GUYS ROCK! I was so discouraged dealing with dealerships that could help me but wanted to give me way more car than I wanted or tried to make me feel like crap...I called John and he was great. I finally made my decision and purchased MY 2005 Dodge Stratus SXT Coupe and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! The process was so painfree that I have referred two other friends/family that purchased cars and actually unbeknownst to you will have two others coming to see you! YOU GUYS AGAIN>>>ROCK!

Amy Murphy - - (posted 2014 on Google+) - -

The people at Palm Tree Auto are awesome. I was able to trade in my old beat up truck, put a small amount down, and got approved for a really nice car, with really affordable monthly payment that weren't out of this world like I thought they would be. When it comes time to buy another car, I will be going to Palm Tree Auto Sales.

From day one working with Lisa, John and Anthony from Palm Tree Auto Sales I do have to mention they are the ideal "True Family Owned Business". Everyone there cares about Customer Satisfaction and they are a great dealership for my company to represent online. I have worked with Lisa and John on multiple occasions and when doing so I have learned they do care a lot about their customers. Their family environment is visible when you call from the second they pick up the phone all the way to the end of the call.

The people that work here are honest and will put you in a great car, for a great price and with a warranty. They also own an auto repair shop. These are used cars people!!! They do everything they can to make sure you are satisfied even if it means fixing something for your new or used car! They are also a member of the Chamber of Commerce and are greatly involved in the community. The Chamber and I highly recommend them!

Buying a car from Ben at Palm Tree Auto Sales was terrifically easy. We were in and out in no time flat and now have a great used Prius that we love! Thanks guys!

Lisa, Just wanted you to know that our customer we referred to you a few weeks ago, came in to our branch today to let us know that he did purchase a Lexus from Palm Tree Auto last week and he was very satisfied with the service he received. We are happy that you were able to provide our customer with his new car and will continue to refer customers your way! Thanks, Sue

Amanda - 2005 Honda Civic

John Is Awesome...... He will get you financed even if it is the last thing he does. This is a great place to buy a car if you dont want a piece of Junk. I just Bought a car from them Not long ago, it was one of the best decisions I have made. The car is in great running condition. I notice a small problem when I first bought it ( not with the engine or transmission) and he fixed it immediately @ No charge. He offers a warranty on all his cars. This is very hard to find these days. Great Cars and Great People!!

Lisa Coolidge - 2005 Toyota Prius

I was very pleased with the price and service at Palm Tree Auto Sales. I will shop here again if I am looking for a new car. I think they are fair in the prices and it was a breeze getting my car. Thank you so much.
