 and can honestly say that I’ll never shop for a vehicle without them. Seriously, there is NO WAY I would ever sit through the excruciatingly long process of purchasing or leasing a vehicle AT a dealership. With Joey, all I have to do is tell him what I want and he does the search, the acquisition AND the delivery to my front door. I never even had to set foot on a dealer lot. I’m just a regular guy, but this service makes me feel like a superstar! If you’re in the market for a new or used vehicle, do not hesitate to ask the Automotive Advisor! You’ll never shop for a car the same way again.

 While it felt difficult to grasp at first, I’m so thankful I put my trust in Bobby, and The Automotive Advisor. After laboring for months to find what I was looking for, I decided to give Bobby a chance. I didn’t give him much to work with, and yet he still found a way to deliver even more than I expected. Bobby asked all the right questions to truly know what I was looking for. Once he went to work, it was clear his determination would have me in my new Jeep in no time. The effort level on my part was so minimal that I wondered how it could be so easy. It was such a great feeling seeing my Jeep for the first time. If you’re tired of doing business with deceitful dealerships, give these guys a chance to deliver. I know I will any time I need a vehicle in the future. Thank you to Bobby and The Automotive Advisor for making this dream come true.

 Starting with the (long) wish list of body style, exterior color, interior color, installed options Joey found in no time and delivered to our door EXACTLY what we were looking for! The car was beautiful in the photos and it was even more gorgeous in person due to his eye to detail and the care that he puts into the process before he delivers the car of your dreams to you. He made the car buying experience enjoyable and we could not be happier. Thank you Joey Bouknight and The Automotive Advisor for everything and we highly recommend his company to anyone looking for a new vehicle!

Lexus and ultimately delivered me a 2007 IS 250 that was near perfect. When it came time to buy another one, Joey was my first call. He was super patient in helping me decide if I wanted a different brand car and let me explore while being available to answer questions and guide me in my search. I finally decided that another Lexus was the way to go and I called Joey right away. Within hours he had identified my car with all the features we discussed and delivered it to me a week later. He even flew to Florida to pick it up! The level of service and attention to detail that I witnessed both times is unmatched in this industry. Their slogan is on point because being a single woman buying a car from a dealer feels very wrong. When you truly “want the car and not the hassle,” I highly recommend the Automotive Advisor. Thank you Joey for all you do!

... continue reading

Automotive Advisor works from another mutual friend. I contacted Bobby and told him what I was looking for, mainly a Civic with a manual transmission and within a few days Bobby had a view for me to look at via emails. I then challenged him with finding me a Honda Civic SI under a certain price and under a certain mileage and once again Bobby had something for me to look at with in a few days.
He found me an 07 in Atlanta GA and I liked it and he sent his driver down to get it for me. Bobby in the meantime contacted my loan officer and had all the paper work completed behind the scenes! This is where things get good about the Automotive Advisor and the quality of people that work with them. The driver got to Atlanta and said, something was “edgy” about the 07 Civic (which is a red flag to anyone) then called Bobby back and said the Dealer didn’t have the title and would have the title sent to us. Well anyone who knows anything about dealers and cars you want to know that title is clean before anything and Bobby told his driver to come on home and we would keep looking. This meant the world to me, it showed that there are still businesses (Car Dealerships) out there who aren’t out to get just the peoples money. Bobby, Thank You for caring as if you were purchasing the vehicle for yourself and not just out to get someones money on an “edgy” deal.
So at this point we were back to looking for another vehicle, once again, the Honda Civic SI and with in a week or so Bobby found me an 09 (2 years newer than the 07 and out the door was going to be the same price). Bobby did everything (the hassles of car buying) for me behind the scenes. He went out of his way to make sure I got what I was looking for and the quality of the Automotive Advisor is all about!! He emailed me the Carfax, pictures, and any information I asked about the vehicle and had it in SC with in 2 days (minus the weekend).
The car is fantastic and better than I expected once it got here. For an 2009 it is CLEANNNNN!! I want to think Bobby and everyone at The Automotive Advisor for taking quality of quantity and for absorbing ALL of the Hassles of car buying!
For your next car buying experience I definitely recommend The Automotive Advisor whether you’re in a rush or not let the find the car you want!

specific questions to determine exactly what I wanted but didn’t stop there. He kept thinking of things and passing them by me for approval. When he found something close to what I was looking for he ran it by me and we both made a decision to keep looking or not. He was up front and gave his expert opinions which was much appreciated. Once we found the perfect match he let me know how strong he felt about it. It’s great to have someone with that much experience out there finding YOUR car. The 1.0 – 5.0 grading system was a huge help. They look the auto over from top to bottom and from side to side, searching for any hidden problems. They really go to bat for you and treat each client as if they themselves were personally purchasing the automobile. That’s what you want in a search team. As you can tell I highly recommend them. Great experience!

recommend the Automotive Advisor to anyone who is in the market for a car. With just a couple of phone calls, text and emails my new car was delivered right to my front door. Using the Automotive Advisor enabled me to continue my everyday responsibilities at work and home without having to spend any time researching and trying to locate the best deal. I simply just told these guys what I wanted (make, model, color & age) and within a short time Joey called to let me know he found the car. Not to mention, I did not have to drive all over to see which dealership would give me the highest trade-in amount for my previous car. It really made the whole experience more enjoyable. When delivered, my new car looked great! Joey and his team had all of the paperwork ready to be signed and the whole process took less than 30 minuets. Just to give you an example of their customer service, I had no problem contacting these guys on the weekend and they even switched out the plates for me. I will be using The Automotive Advisor again and again. I would also encourage you to give them a try!!

I was living in Lisbon, Portugal and had plans to return to the States in March 2016

... continue reading

and knowing I would need a car and did not want the hassle of going from dealership to dealership and having checked the car I wanted on the internet while in Lisbon I e-mailed Joey at Automotive Advisor. We talked via phone from Lisbon to Columbia and that was all that was needed, Joey knew what I wanted and I had to do nothing but write the check. This was the most relaxing and free of calls from salesmen I have ever had when purchasing a car. My partner and I arrived in Columbia on March 4 and went to my sons home that Friday evening and on Saturday morning at around 11 a.m. Joey pulled into my sons driveway with my new Honda HRV. I will never go thru the time and hasel of looking for a new car when I need one. all I will do is call Automotive Advisor and suggest you do the same. I could not have been happier with the purchase and the ease of not having to be in a salesman’s office to sign for the car. I would give them a 10 star rating if possible and we did all this 4000 miles apart. My thanks to Joey Bouknight and and Automotive Advisor.

many insurance details—post recovery—and the thought of shopping for a new car was overwhelming. That’s when I decided to give Joey Bouknight a call and to inquire about his service at The Automotive Advisor. Joey walked me through the process and immediately started offering different car options based on my budget and helped me narrow down the choices for a safe, powerful ride that would get me back on the road. The process was fun and enjoyable, especially when I got emails of different auto options, like online shopping and a personal delivery man! Yes, once I had decided on the right car, Joey even drove the car to my front door! That’s service. I never felt any pressure like in traditional auto shopping, and I absolutely love my new Lexus. If you are in need of a new car, want a simple and friendly way to shop, and have an authentic auto advocate on your side, call Joey today! Thanks for helping me find what I needed, Joey even when I wasn’t sure myself! Love love love my car!
