I bought a Taurus police interceptor from here at the beginning of the year. Its been very reliable so far and it will be my daily driver for years to come. Highly recommend dealing with Anthony and the people at AJS, especially for used ex-police vehicles. They have a large inventory with reasonable prices

Anthony and his son were super professional when I was there looking at a Nissan X-Trail. I felt valued as a client and could tell that Anthony really takes his time with clients to ensure they provide the best experience possible. I had a few requests prior to pickup of the car and Anthony was happy to accommodate all of them, making for a very seamless delivery. If I am ever in the market again I will certainly look toward AJS Auto Sales.

I went to AJS auto with my brother and I bought a 2011 Crown Victoria from Anthony. He was very welcoming and easy to deal with, gave me the trade in value I was looking for on my car and also helped get the car I was purchasing ready earlier than expected as requested. I highly recommend buying a car from this dealer and I have had no issues with the car I have bought. Old school stand up guy and deal!

Thanks to the AJS team, I now drive a 2010 Honda Civic in very good condition which serves me well. Anthony was professional, respectful and informative about the vehicle and a few others I looked at. I also had the pleasure to deal with Stephen who was also very professional about his work. Stephen even went the extra mile and restored my headlights. They turned out fantastic and I am ecstatic about the service I received. I will be recommending AJS Auto Sales to others in the future!

After purchasing a Crown Victoria from AJs AutoSales, my boyfriend highly recommended that I get my first car from AJs, too. Since picking up my Ford Taurus it has been nothing but WONDERFUL. The car came in immaculate condition, has run beautifully ever since, and every step of the way was made easy thanks to the gracious help from Anthony Picilaidis. If you’re looking to get some sweet deals on some nice cars, this is definitely the place to go! 5 stars all around.

Just bought a Chevy suburban from Anthony, very happy with the vehicle. Had a small issue with the vehicle after the purchase but Anthony was very flexible and helped me get everything sorted so I could keep enjoying my truck. If you're looking for a new used car, I would definitely recommend AJS auto sales

My wife and I visited AJS Sales based on the fantastic reviews that we had read and we are glad that we did. This is a family owned business that is run by Anthony, his two sons, and his mother. They are open and honest about the condition of the vehicles along with the history of the vehicles. We ended up purchasing a Dodge Grand Caravan from them. It runs so smoothly and it was extremely clean, it looked brand new! Anthony and his team walk you through each part of the paperwork process and explain what each section means. They answer any question you may have with honesty and transparency. They had our Caravan certified and ready for pick up in a matter of days. I would highly recommend AJS Auto Sales as they carry quality vehicles and have fair pricing. My wife and I will definitely be coming back in the near future to upgrade her Corolla to an SUV! Thanks so much for a great car-buying experience!

My husband and I recently purchased a 2014 Dodge Caravan from AJs Auto Sales. We were met by Anthony’s son who spent quite a bit of time with us, answering our questions and allowing us a thorough test drive of the vehicle. They were respectful and low pressure while making our decisions. They were also quick to safety and get the vehicle ready for sale. Anthony made sure the vehicle’s AC system got a charge before leaving the lot which was important to me, and when we realized that system had a leak, he went out of his way to replace the lines entirely so I would have a cool and comfortable vehicle for myself and our three children. I’m very grateful for the time and effort he put in to make sure we loved our new van! We’ve been driving it for a full week and it’s been fantastic. We will be back when my husband’s vehicle needs an upgrade!

In all my years I haven't run into many good car sales people, but Anthony and his team provided outstanding service and I am very pleased with my purchase. I would highly recommend buying a vehicle from them. His family went so far as to refer us to an excellent Greek restaurant, which we greatly enjoyed. We will be returning to his business for future car detailing as they provide this service as well. Thank you to Anthony and his family!

Great experience in purchasing my first car! Anthony and Stephen made me feel comfortable and did not pressure me in making a decision right away. It was great to be able to go back home and do some more research to finally make a decision. I love my car and I'm so glad I got to have this experience with them. Knowleadgeable, fair and very pleasant to deal with. Anthony helped me in getting all paperwork done and organized and I just showed up to pick it up. For a process that could be stressful, he took that piece out of the equation. Highly recommended! Thanks Anthony and Stephen!

They got me approved for financing, got the van ready and had all the paperwork ready for me to sign. Incredible. This was on the long weekend to boot. Now I can get to work without missing any more time. Much appreciated, thank you again. I highly recommend considering AJS Auto Sales for your next vehicle, you wont be disappointed!

Anthony’s manner is one of no BS. I Bought my 2011 Crown Vic P7B this month from him. Good working machine, and I’m thrilled I could find one like it before they’re all gone. I like old cop cars for large sedan roominess combined with good road handling. He has sold a few and his reviews are what drew me there.The one I got revealed no surprises from what the ad said.I would deal with him again, despite me living 90 minutes away.

Anthony is one of the best in the business. He was completely upfront and honest about the condition and history of the car. He was more interested in me being happy with the car than "making the sale" and went out of his way to deal with even the smallest issues with the car. Anthony is a class act, running a trustworthy, family owned business. Highly recommended!

Anthony was very kind and helpful, he consulted me about the car, warranty, down payment and financing. The car was ready for pick up in two days and the documents as well. Anthony even arranged the change of the tires with winter ones.I highly recommend Anthony and AJS Auto Sales Inc.!

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!

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!
