I know, the stars seem way too high for a car dealership - let alone a USED car dealership. But I gotta say these guys are legit. Sheldon, Tony, & the gang just love cars and connecting people with these super cool finds. They put an emphasis on service that is refreshingly genuine, and straight up honorable (I know, right? Honorable? A car dealership? Yeah.) I traded in my car for a beautiful gem of a car & they made the process super simple and easy. They even walked me through all the paperwork, taking their time to explain things, no pressure at all, no upsells, just integrity. They care that you get the best deal on the market, and they want you to be friggin stoked on your new ride. The level of service here is an experience all on its own. They even helped me out after I bought my car when I was worried about some strange sounds. They invited me to bring it back to the shop so they could check it out - such a huge help - and frankly, this is why I specifically chose the word "honorable." Oh, but keep in mind, when I say "best deal on the market," their stock is mostly rare stuff, so if you're just looking for a car that goes and checking kbb for pricing comparisons, this may or may not be your spot (lol but stop by anyway for the experience, I'm tellin' you it's like no other, and hey, you never know what they're gonna have in stock!).

This is a legitimate 5 star business. Sheldon and Tony provided an exceptional experience not found anywhere else in the used car market. Completely stress free, friendly, responsive, and without the slimy tactics littered across modern car dealers. They are on my radar for any future car shopping! Highly recommend you visit the Auto Paddock!

Tony and Sheldon were very helpful in helping me source my BMW M3 and Porsche. They provided me with insightful guidance on the car market, and took the time to help me choose the right cars for my needs. In addition, they also assisted me in selling my daily driver.

I was in search for a new used car and was recommended to visit The Auto Paddock from a friend. Upon entry, the first thing I notice was the wall of hot wheels. Great decoration! I had the opportunity to speak to the owners. They were very friendly and appeared knowledgeable. As someone with limited car knowledge, they did a awesome job answering all my questions and concerns. Thanks fellas! I will be sure to stop by again once I decided on a car! Great complimentary snacks too! I left with hot Cheetos and some candy.

I came in to check out a Lexus IS350 that they had in stock. I was genuinely surprised by the customer service this dealership provided. The price was great which was brought me in but the shopping experience made me stay. The decor and vibes were second to none compared to other used car dealerships I shopped around at. The dealership had great music playing and had tons of complimentary snacks and drinks that really enhanced my shopping experience. Although I did not end up buying the Lexus I still highly recommend this place for the shopping experience and competitive pricing

The Auto Paddock Team was welcoming and friendly upon my visit. This is their new location and they have a great selection of cars ready stocked at the dealership. As a female, it can be quite intimidating to walk into  dealership, but Tony and Sheldon were very attentive to my questions and I even got to test drive the 911 around the block. After the drive, I was offered water and complimentary snacks (they had really good snacks). While I did not buy a car, i will definitely come back for future car services. I learned that they recently added car detailing and repair to their shop.

When I first walked into this dealership I was taken aback at just how honest and transparent these people are. I have been in the car business and can attest that this is the most up front and honest dealership I have ever been to. It was an absolute pleasure dealing with this dealership!

Tony and Sheldon are just about the best guys to buy a car from. Great office, amazing garage. Super helpful before and after purchase. We let them know we were flying in, and they picked us up from the airport, let us take it to a mechanic for a pre-purchase inspection, and were the coolest guys to sit and talk to. Best of luck guys.

Both Tony and Sheldon were super nice and helpful when I went to go look at a 2008 Civic Si. The car was in great condition despite being 15 years old, low miles, the interior was mint and drives smooth. They were very upfront with any issues they knew about and didn't try to up charge on anything and explained all the fees and taxes in detail. It's obvious that these guys are car enthusiasts and loves to chat about anything car related with people. Sheldon noticed an issue with a plastic trim piece while we were on our way to go pick up the car so instead of trying to hide it like many other dealers would, he was very up front about it and even discounted the cost of replacement parts for it from my total OTD price. If you're looking for a dealer that specializes on low miles, clean and unmodded fun or performance cars, I highly recommend you check out the Auto Paddock. Overall, experience at this dealership was fantastic!

Sheldon and Tony are awesome! My mom and I had been car hunting for ages dealing with sketchy sales people and dealers just trying to find the right car. Sheldon and Tony made us feel welcome, were nothing but kind and transparent and made the process suuuper easy. Thank you guys again, we LOVE our CAR!!!

Before I was introduced to Tony’s team at Auto Paddock, we had a terrible experience with selling my car at another car dealership RMC in San Bruno. We spent thousands on fixing the car brakes and cleaning the car just to found out the car brake wasn’t even fixed and it became unsafe to drive. they also listed my car for the price much lower than they initially quoted without our consent. All this bad experience lead us to calling a handful more car dealers. We are lucky to get introduced to Tony! He and his team immediately came to my house to inspect the car, gave us an very reasonable estimate, took our car to a repair shop for a fix within a few days, helped us saved a few thousand dollars on repairing, and also got our car sold within 30 Days! We are so thankful! If you are looking for an honest and reliable car dealer, you don’t need to look further! Tony’s team is the best!

Sheldon and Tony were great! No fuss way to buy a car. I couldn't be happier. They were knowledgeable and professional. I loved the no hassle buying experience. Truly a pleasure to work with.

You know, initially I had my doubts before purchasing my M3 from them. I haven't had good experiences at used car dealerships in the past. But Sheldon and Tony... man I was so blown away. Buying a car should ALWAYS be like this. They were both very communicative and transparent. I was flying in from Los Angeles and they even picked me up from the airport SUPER early in the morning! WOW!!! They're very knowledgeable, honest, and respectful of your time. The cars they curate are primo too. I would buy my next car from them and I even recommended my friends to seek them out for their next car as well.

Where to start on this review...for those who don't want to read the lengthy review. The TLDR is YES, Tony and Sheldon at The Auto Paddock truly give you the most professional, transparent yet casual used car buying experience ever! I was looking for a reliable and fuel efficient vehicle for my 76 mile commute to work and back. Upon arrival, you can tell that Tony and Sheldon at The Auto Paddock are passionate about their hobby in cars and their business. I was not rushed into the vehicle buying process and their knowledge of their vehicles in inventory sealed the deal. I've purchased multiple cars throughout my life and the way they handled themselves was truly a professional yet casual experience. If I had any questions about the vehicle or paperwork, they took the time to explain it in a way that was easy for me to process and understand. Thank you for Tony and Sheldon for the awesome daily and I hope we can do more business in the future when I am in the market for another vehicle!

Well it's been over two weeks since I purchased my 2015 Toyota sienna limited from the boys at Auto Padlock. First thing I appreciate about them that they are also just as myself and family are native born San Franciscans. They have true integrity for being car salesman and definitely support the local economy. My purchase has been tremendous and I can't tell you how much I appreciate the customer service ,I received from Auto Padlock. In no way shape or form did I feel pressured by any annoying follow up calls after I initially looked at the vehicle, and that tells me that they don't feel, like they have to pester the customer into buying the vehicle. Because the vehicles they sell are not only quality but they sell themselves.My credits not so great, but they definitely help me get a quality loan at a decent APR and for that I am also grateful . So if you are looking to support a small business, please support this business because it's two high school buddies with the dream and they're living it. To Sheldon and Tony, I am very grateful for the opportunity. You gave me to buy a new car for my family and myself and as a San Francisco Native also, I am very proud of the the business you have created by two local boys. Stay blessed, and we will see each other again..

Shopping for a used car is not an easy matter; dealing with a dealership or a salesperson who may not communicate with you in a timely manner, might push you in some way or another, and/ or become rude if you decide not to buy.  This is definitely and surprisingly is not the case at "The Auto Paddock''. All the unexpected happened: Professional Communication, Responsiveness, Excellent customer service, and Transparency. I am really satisfied with my purchase and I definitely recommend them for anyone who is shopping for a car. I will definitely be back the next time I'm in the market.Sheldon and Tony THANK YOU! for making this experience pleasant for me!

I purchased a 2008 Lexus LS 460. The car is in great shape what's relatively low mileage considering the year. Sheldon was excellent work with and was obviously very knowledgeable about the vehicle. I couldn't be happier!

H Loeffler

I had the absolute pleasure of working with Tony and Sheldon while helping a friend get a new car and I loved every second of the experience! From quick and friendly emails from Tony, to Sheldon's detailed knowledge of every aspect of the vehicle, and their transparency with every tiny detail of the car, I'd come back to The Auto Paddock every time from now on I'm looking for a new vehicle! Even the chat about the difficulties of buying used cars was such a blast! If you're so much as thinking about buying one of their cars, drop by and chat with them, I think even if you don't buy it'll be worth your time!

Tony and Sheldon made the buying used car experience very comfortable and easy.  They are very nice, informative and not intimidating. The vehicle selection was perfect for our needs...we were able to find a low mileage honda accord for a great price.  I recommend contacting them.

Tony and Shelton made the process of buying a car so easy. The service and their knowledge of cars made me feel at ease with my purchase. They answered all my questions I had and even gave me the background of the car. I highly recommend purchasing your car from them.

Went to check out a car here. Sheldon is very knowledgeable about cars. This place is great if you’re a car enthusiast, and if you aren’t one they have no problem explaining and demonstrating the features on the vehicle. There is no pressure to buy and they are very up front about all of their vehicles. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to purchase a vehicle 100%

Called over to their shop to inquire about a particular Lexus SUV they had on line and a young man answered, I mentioned to him I was communicating with someone on staff via text and I have a couple questions that had not been answered. One may have mistaken this young man for one of Auto Paddocks competitors, because very quickly that young man would not only answer my question but would elaborate and offer additional information, information that saved me time. For me there's one deal killer,  if the car I'm buying has cracks in the dashboard, it's on to the next for me and I pass, too difficult to replace or repair. It turns out I was speaking to one of the businesses owners.The boutique styled car selling business apparently treats  there customers with, honesty and candidness that is sadly, not part of the business vernacular today. This was refreshing to say the least. Thanks for candidly offering an upfront and honest answer about the vehicle's condition. Now that's some honesty, integrity and sincerity I can get behind! Haven't bought a car from the guy yet however, this individuals positive disposition was so unexpected so early on in our conversation it's inspired a pre- business transactions, review.This might be a first.

I'm not a car person, so Tony and Sheldon were both really helpful in answering all my questions and not like typical car salesman. I recommend checking them out for a friendly and professional car consultation/buying experience!

While I did not ultimately buy the car I was considering, my experience with Shelton and The Auto Paddock was extremely positive! Communication was great: Open, courteous, responsive. Fun! Not at all pushy! Helpful! They are living the values stated on their website: upfront, honest. Refreshing! Check them out!

I bought a 2019 Cmary SE from them a few days ago and I gotta say I absolutely love it. They were amazing through the whole process and went above and beyond for me in multiple ways, so much so that I drove 5 hours ro get the car. Their selection also blew me away as well which included everything from a Nissan Altima to a brand new Porsche 911 GT3. These guys are car enthusiasts and I would recommend them to anyone.

Tony and Shelton were great guys to work with. Answered all my questions and put customer first. Not many shop can do that. Was looking for a reliable sedan and got a great car from them. They are chill and I didn't feel any pressure. Highly recommend! Just talk to them if you have any questions about getting a car.

The two guys who run this shop are superb. You can tell they are car guys first and salespeople second.  Sheldon was able to find and procure a vehicle for me. He was communicative, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. No high pressure sales gimmicks, no slimy used-car-dealer vibes.

I purchased a 2004 4runner back in January of this year and could not have been more pleased about the customer service. Both Tony and Sheldon were very friendly, and flexible with showing me the vehicle. They even allowed me to put a deposit down to hold the vehicle until I was able to finalize funding with my lender.Overall it was a great experience and look forward to working with them again in the future.Thanks guys!

Working with Sheldon was a pleasure. We were looking for a manual 325xi for a while until we found this low mileage 2003. The condition of the car was exactly as represented. We were most impressed by the communication, and professionalism of the Auto Paddock team.

I purchased a low-mileage 2008 Acura TSX from these guys.  The entire process was smooth and stress-free.  I was given the time to inspect the vehicle and not pressured at all to buy it.  Responsive, knowledgeable and fair.  Great car-buying experience!

My partner and I purchased a used Mercedes Benz from the Auto Paddock. We needed a car that was low to the ground for our aging large dog to get into, and my Land Rover is too high off the ground for him :(. TLDR: This dealership made it easy, start to finish and allowed us the flexibility for the test drive we needed to ensure this purchase made sense for our unique situation.Sheldon described the car in great detail, taking us through the available data for condition and service history. He remained on standby via phone and text to answer my numerous questions (I am very particular when it comes to vehicle purchases). It's clear Sheldon and his colleagues have a passion for cars. Buying from a knowledgeable enthusiast in a low pressure environment really set this experience apart from other cars we have bought.This vehicle was priced reasonably considering the age and mileage, and I feel like we both got a great deal. I walked out feeling like we made a good decision and I'd consider using their services again when its time to replace my Rover. Thanks all.

Sheldon hooked me up with an absolute gem of a car! He took care of all the difficult paper work and gave me great deal too. I appreciated that he was friendly, kind, and professional. If I'm ever looking for another car, he's the first one I'd ask.
