DO I STILL GET THE FACTORY WARRANTY IF I PURCHASE A NEW VEHICLE?

Of course! Dealers do not warranty vehicles, manufacturers do. When you buy from us, the same factory warranties apply. In fact, we even offer wholesale pricing on extended service contracts for your new vehicle!

ARE YOU A FRANCHISED DEALERSHIP?

Automotive Consultants is NOT a franchised dealership and does not represent any manufacturer so we are not authorized to perform recall or original factory warranty work, however, we are a New York State “Qualified Dealer.” What this means to you is that we are one of a few duly licensed State dealerships that are authorized to sell ANY make or model of new vehicle - not limited to just 1 or 2 particular brands.

ARE YOU A BROKER OR A DEALER?

Depending on who you talk to: Manufacturers and some company dealers view us as a broker because we don’t carry their particular franchise.

New York State recognizes Automotive Consultants as a "Qualified Dealer" #7011463 duly licensed to perform all facets of the sale transaction. We are also bonded, insured and have to abide by all New York State regulations.
