We searched all over Northern Virginia for a reliable used car for our college aged daughter. From the scary fly-by-night warehouse dealers in Chantilly to a dealer in Alexandria selling a car that had obviously been in an accident as a 0 accident vehicle. Eddie and the team at 1st Choice Auto were a breath of fresh air. It's a small team, not competing with each other, with a solid lot of inventory, and a focus on helping their customers find a vehicle. They engaged us in dialogue to understand what we were looking for, recommended a couple vehicles on the lot, then took us out to see their entire inventory. We found a great Toyota Rav-4 with some bumper damage. Eddie got the rear left bumper fixed and painted! Price was fair and process was well oiled. I will come here first to purchase my next used vehicle.

I purchased a Honda from this dealership in October. Based on my experience with 1st Choice Auto, I'd rate their communication 5/5 and the condition of the vehicle that I purchased from them 3.5/5, for a total of 4/5 stars. The pros: they answer calls promptly and courteously. They work with out-of-state buyers (i.e., I was permitted to send a mobile mechanic to check out the vehicle for a pre-purchase inspection, and I was allowed to put down a $500 non-refundable deposit to reserve the vehicle). They provided an itemized list and total of all costs over the phone and by email, and offered to handle the DMV/MVA paperwork for me. The mechanic noted that the windshield wipers needed to be replaced, and the dealership took care of that for me at my request. The cons: their listings claim that, "All safety recalls performed prior to vehicle pickup." That was not, in fact, the case with my vehicle. I arrived at the dealership more than three business days after placing my deposit. They offered to take it to a Honda dealership for me to get the recall resolved, but it was too late and inconvenient at that stage to do so (an acquaintance drove me a bit under 2 hours to reach the dealership as I did not have my own car, and I didn't want to impose on them any further by returning at a later date). Furthermore, while the car did pass both Virginia's state inspection and my home state's inspection, I ended up paying an additional $600+ for repairs. My advice is to mentally tack on an additional 10% to 15% to the total purchase price to land at a realistic amount you'll end up paying, and don't expect the vehicle to be 100% as you drive off the lot with it. If you find yourself considering a vehicle at the upper end of your budget, be sure to inspect the vehicle first and revise your offer accordingly.

Bought a beautiful low miles Mercedes Benz from Eddie at 1st Choice. I am very happy with the car and the sale was smooth and easy. Ask Eddie about the best cars on the lot and I think he will point you in the right direction.

Owner stated that car recently passed inspection however from initial look the tires were completely bald and cracked on the sides. There were barely any brakes left and the rotors are rusted. The car will definitely need other repairs as well after purchase if it passes inspection. Power mirrors are not included either as it is missing the button. The listing price is 9,994 but the car is nowhere near that price on average.

Was looking for a conversation van. Found 1 on the lot. Needed A/C repair. Said they would fix it. Put down a miniscule amount to hold. In the meantime numerous offers came. Some offering more than asking price. Not dealer hype! This was Friday. Repair completed Wednesday. I'm a 😊 owner of a conversation van.

I just came in this afternoon March 29. 2021 and was shopping for a used car. They do not accept financing. I was so disappointed by their demeanor. Steve does not know how to talk to customers. People in their place of work should know how to engage in a conversation with would be customers. I am now enlightened by the fact that this dealership is not really A1 for me.

Purchased a vehicle from the team. Steve and Ed were fantastic. Process was very smooth. All the team members were respectful and honest. Couldn’t have asked for more. Note, they only do cash transactions (they do not finance).

very disappointed, hard sales tactics but they don't even know anything about the car that their trying to sell, the only thing the guy was interested in was getting me to sign on the dotted lines. i noticed every car is POLISHED and they shine like a diamond, i mean it's incredible but after reading the reviews online i was glad i didn't make the purchase right away, their more interested in making sure polishing the xxxx out of the cars then customer service.

I was searching for a Saab 97x in the Virginia area and found one online at this dealership. It was the right price and the truck looked incredible in the photos. I spent two weeks trying to contact the dealership and communication was very sporadic from them. Finally I decided to fly down to the area from Buffalo and upon walking into the dealership I was amazingly disappointed. The Saab they had was NOT the same as the photos. This thing was beat to ever loving sh*t. It looked like someone took it on a joy ride through Afgjanastan. Dents in every panel and God knows how many scratches. The lower mirrors didn't even move and neither did the sunroof. What a complete and total waste of my time. Time I could have spent looking at other vehicles or doing something more productive like sleeping.
