I walked into the AJS office without an appointment to inquire about an Odyssey and met Anthony. His friendly and welcoming personality made me feel valued and appreciated as a customer. He was straight-up and honest about the vehicle I was looking to purchase as well as the vehicle I was trading in. I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend AJS to anyone looking to buy their next vehicle. Thank you Anthony for making my car purchase fast and easy.

I recently purchases a Ford Explorer from AJS. They took the time to go over the vehicle with me and make a list of items that needed attention. The vehicle was taken to the AJS garage and given a thorough inspections. The list we put together was complete and they even detailed it. Amazing service. Great representation of a family business and great customer service. I will continue to take my vehicle for any maintenance and repairs to AJS.

Anthony was an absolute pleasure to deal with, the complete opposite of the cliche used car sales experience. Honest and up front. Didn't try to "sell" me a vehicle, just pointed me at what matched what I was looking for. Very responsive and patient while we were dealing with a family emergency. Would happily recommend to friends or family and when we're ready for another vehicle will absolutely start with him.

I’m doing this review as I felt like an obligation due to Anthony favour to my family. My family recently moved from MB to Toronto and were in need of a large suv, which we found at this dealership. We met with Anthony and his son (wonderful young man) at the dealership and took the suv for a test drive. We liked the car and were able to make the deal, on our terms that was a bit challenging 🙂 as we needed a few upgrades. Anthony ordered the parts for us right away and we paid the deposit $2000 to secure the vehicle. However, our circumstances changed in the next few days and we didn’t need a vehicle anymore but Anthony was nice enough to give us the $1500 deposit back, excluding the money for the parts which he deserves to keep. I’d recommend this dealership to everyone and if we need a car in the future, I’d straight go to him. Keep up the good work Anthony. Stay healthy and blessed!

I recently purchased a vehicle from AJS Auto Sales for my mother. I was a little nervous about buying a used vehicle( not knowing much about cars) however Anthony & his son made me feel very comfortable and confident throughout the process ensuring me that everything would be in working order when the car was ready for pick up. It was an excellent experience from start to finish and I would highly recommend them!

Very great family run business. Anthony was very helpful and caring when it came to the car and making sure that I had the right warranty and that everything was working great with the car. He's a straight up no bs salesman, he called me to reschedule the pickup due to a small part that needed to be replaced, he replaced it and I picked up the car a few days later. Not every salesman would even bring up the broken part, never mind replace it at no extra charge. I definitely recommend this dealership for anyone looking to buy a used car at a good price and great customer service 🙂

I recently used AJS Autos broker services to purchase my new Hyundai Elantra. Purchasing a new car can be very intimidating, as sales people can be so pushy and the different options and versions of the same car can be so overwhelming.I had the pleasure of working with Anthony and he made the entire process so easy and fun. He coordinated test drives on my behalf with the dealerships of my choice which saved me so much time, energy and aggravation. When it came time to negotiating the deal, Anthony was there to help support the process and got me a better deal than I could have ever gotten on my own.The whole experience was fun and exciting rather than overwhelming and intimidating. Anthony was patient, understanding and so pleasant to deal with.I would wholeheartedly recommend their broker services to anyone buying a new car!

I've bought and sold countless cars in my lifetime, and often it's a rare transaction that goes off flawlessly. Anthony did exactly that. It was a flawless transaction. He did what he said he'd do, called back when he said he would and even delivered my new car when he said he would.If you value professional service and attention to detail, he is the guy you should be calling. The added bonus is he's a family guy, and it clearly shows with how he treats people.

I recently bought a 2011 Crown Vic Police Interceptor from Anthony. He was easy to deal with and answered all my questions. I've put a few 1000 km's on it since and haven't had any issues at all with it. I also purchased a 1 year warranty with the vehicle at a reasonable cost. I haven't had to make any claims on the warranty yet. I will update my review once I need to do so to save others any issues I run into.

I got my wife's car detailed for as a present a AJS and they totally exceeded my expectations. The car looked like new. I was blown away. Anythony and his son Steven were friendly, helpful and detailed oriented. When we picked up the car they took the time to walk us through the work they did and offered suggestions to keep it looking great...and the price was so reasonable. I couldn't recommend them enough. 5/5

I recently bought a 2010 caravan, my experience was good. I'm super unlucky when it comes to vehicles, but so far so good. I got everything done by the time that was agreed upon (car, plates, etc) Vehicle sounds good, runs good. Sales people are friendly and helpful. Hopefully this will be the vehicle that changes my luck 🙂 From the experience I had so far I'd recommend this place.

Shout out to Anthony Picilaidis of Ajs Auto Sales for offering to help me with the battery in my mom's VW Beetle!! His lovely son John came to her place, changed out the battery, took the old one away and was pleasant as can be! So happy to have such kind neighbours in our little hood! Anthony also came by to have a look at the car because we are wanting to sell it now that my mother is 88 and not driving anymore.Thanks again for all your help Anthony and John!Suzanne Pratt

As someone who doesn't buy used cars very often, I'm a bit skeptical about the entire process from the get-go. Finding a dealership with a 4.9 star rating was interesting and certainly helped build confidence prior to meeting Anthony. I'm happy to report the ratings and reviews are true on this place. The car purchasing experience was smooth and hassle free. I happy to recommend AJS Auto Sales and I'd reach out to them again in the event I need a used car in the future.

A great overall experience at AJS auto! A family feel with mom helping out in the front office. From our first meeting Anthony accommodated my busy schedule and agreed to meet me outside of his normal hours. Negotiating our deal was easy and stress free. Delivery was on time despite giving him a tough deadline. Even with limited staffing at the time, he made it happen. A few minor issues came up which needed rectifying and Anthony was very accommodating at helping to get these issues resolved to my satisfaction - I couldn't be more pleased with his after sale support. I whole heartedly recommend Anthony and his team at AJS for everyone's used car needs.

last month was looking to buy a car to replace my old van and found this dealer normally I don't deal with dealer do private buys, but this is my first experience and it was great, Anthony the owner is really good no pushy at all to make the sell, he is very honest on the condition of the car you won't find a car that has been detailed and hide imperfections, he is honest and said that you have to do the changes of all the fluids , also we negotiate to cover some holes, I bought a police car so I know is expected not to find a perfect paint without scratches and some holes for the equipment they use to have.price is fair for the KM and year, Anthony customer service is great and his response is fast.I will recommend anybody who is looking for a used car go to AJS auto sales.Anthony thanks again and sure we will back to your store for my next Car!

Buying a new car can be stressful and it doesn't help when the salesmen get really pushy. Anthony was a pleasure to deal with. He was honest and very accommodating. He was happy to work around our preferences and did not push us to make a decision straight away. If you need a car definitely go and have a look at the cars at AJS sales!

Absolutely the best car buying experience I've ever had (and I have bought over 25 vehicles).Anthony, the owner, is professional, courteous, knowledgeable and completely accommodating to a fault! He even fixed a side view mirror issue that no-one was aware of, on the spot ...well after the purchase!Any more used cars will definitely be purchased at AJS Auto Sales - A 5+ star auto dealer in my book. Thanks again Anthony!

It was a pleasure dealing with AJS! Even though there were dealers closer to my home selling the kind of car I was looking for (2011 Crown Victoria) nobody else had the quality that I wanted. Living 2 hours away my first contact with Anthony was by phone and right off the bat I knew he was a straight forward guy and most importantly he never tried to sell me something I didn't want. Dealing with a smaller family run business is the way to go. Thanks again for making this a great and fun experience.

This company went over and above the call of duty. I purchased a vehicle from them from out of town. The owner took time from his vacation out of country to attend to my needs. He got my vehicle plated and ready to go within a very short time constraint without hesitation. I am very pleased with the service and would happily do business with them again.

I was really impressed with the AJS website and even more so by Anthony and his son John, who operate AJS Auto. If you are looking for a good used car, this team will not try to mislead you about their vehicles. They even tracked down a car that I liked at a competitor's location and examined it, taking photos for me! Their website promises integrity and they certainly deliver. You can visit them knowing that high-pressure sales tactics are not used at AJS. I would not hesitate to deal with them again.

Where do I start?! I searched a variety of places to find my first car but AJS Auto Sales stooped me in my tracks and ended my search! Their great prices coupled with the great condition of their cars intrigued me and enhanced my desire to drive away with my first car off of their lot! The owner and his family made me feel, well, like family and offered me fantastic customer service. I feel that they went above and beyond and catered to my every need! When looking for a car at an affordable price.. one that’s also in good condition AJS Auto Sales is the place to shop!!!!!! It’s been a couple of weeks since I got my car and it runs great. I couldn’t be happier 🙂

I came to this auto sales shop because I had a small vehicle and it wasn't big enough for my family. I went to look at a van and I was met by the owner Anthony P. From the moment I met him he was quick to help me figure out what I needed and what I could afford. I drove away with an amazing vehicle, well kept, smooth driving, and freshly steam cleaned! Anthony was not aggressive, he was not rude, pushy or short with me. He was patient and he found me a great plan.I was comforted by the accolades that hung just behind his desk, he is a very educated man.On top of that, I asked him if he would allow me to trade my car in and he said yes. Upon a thorough inspection he notified me that the car I was driving was unfit. There were holes in the sub-frame and if there were an accident the car would not have held up. I was mortified that I was driving with my child and she was not protected.Thank you Anthony, I love the van and so does my family. I would recommend this place to anyone I know!
