The best experience that I have:
My car was recently hit and needed to be replaced. I have had some credit issues from my past, so my score is not high enough to be financed for a new car. I always run along Santa Monica Blvd, and I passed by Payless a number of times. They always had a bunch of really nice preowned cars on their lot. I wanted to purchase a preowned car, but wasn't sure if I could qualify for the right financing. I went to the lot to check the cars out and the dealership. Everybody was very friendly. Robert helped me out a great deal in finding the right one in my price range and that would fit my financing parameters. Payless was able to get me a great auto loan, at a great rate. I was able to purchase a 2009 Audi black on black, just what I wanted. I was in and out of the dealership in 2 hours with my new car! I definitely will recommend them to my friends and family. If you're in need of a new car, check them out! Thanks guys.

I don't usually leave Yelp reviews, but for some reason I feel inclined too.

Robert is a genuine person. I could tell immediately.

I've always been worried when buying cars that were not directly from dealerships, but he offers a 30 day warranty to get it inspected.

I took the vehicle to Land Rover the very next day, and they told me the car was in perfect condition, no problems whatsoever, just as he said. A man of his words.

The transaction was smooth, and the customer service was great. And not to mention, he got us a 2.49% interest rate, and didn't even add a point on top!

Thanks Robert!

What a great experience! Shopping for another car is not fun but Robert and Volkan were awesome! Robert even came in to take care of our financing on his day off just to make sure everything was okay. Volkan is super friendly and made the transaction easy. No pressure, No tricks, No Gimmicks. I'm coming to here when I get my next vehicle. Thank you for such a great and pleasant experience!

I'll call you Robert & Volkan!!

Just left the salon in a TT convertible with my happy wife.

Robert and Volkan were extremely professional and what they did to help my wife with zero credit still get approved and get a great financing deal was something one would expect only from a "family" shop where buyer and seller are relatives.

If you like the car and you're ready to drive it home. They just make it happen. Period.

One last thing was pleased with was the speed of paperwork and DMV related stuff management - it took Robert something like 30 minutes to prepare everything on all ends and have us sign pre-approved bunch of documents that were accurately sorted out by Robert and we got our keys right away and were all set.

The bottom line is I have never experienced this awesome customer service before. And they do have great cars there. No flakes and fake photo ads like others usually do.

Will definitely recommend Paylessauto to my friends.

thank you guys.

Alex and Mari.
new 2008 audi tt owners.

As a first time car buyer, I was nervous--anxious about my credit score and basic ability to make a car purchase. In fact I was already planning for the worst.

IMMEDIATELY all pretense about purchasing was put to rest as I was greeted with a warm inviting smile, and a firm welcoming handshake from Robert. I explained my situation. He listened. He offered a solution. What a concept! And then he designed a plan that fit my budget and car requirements and needs.Then he explained to me how everything worked from my credit score to the down payment and even helped me get insurance. WOW!!! Oh, and this ALL happened in one day.

Basically, I can't express enough gratitude and respect for the way Payless (Robert and Volkan) helped me with what normally would've been a headache and turned it into a handshake. For the record, I am the proud new/first time OWNER of a Volvo S40. It's safe for kids, gets great gas millage, and not to mention I look awesome in midnight blue!!! From the bottom of my heart, thank you Robert!!!

My brother purchased a pre-owned Mercedes GL450 on New Years Eve from Robert for his wife. We'd visited Payless's lot in the past on two other occasion and my brother finally made a selection and the process began.

Robert was awesome, he very knowledgeable, he show cased great looking inventory; he was over-the-top efficient and produced a speedy acceptance of the approval process of financing with everything done just under an hour with no haggling, no pushy tactics, or surprises after inking the deal.

During the final stages of closing-out the deal - Robert offered, prepared, and accommodated us with two delicious cafè mocha's in my opinion added an extremely nice touch of class to an already pleasant experience.

I've purchased many vehicle over the years and (Payless Auto Sales) is a top notch establishment with impeccable customer service. I can't forget to mention sales associate (Vulćun) for his time and in-sight as well.

Thank-you once Robert it was certainly an eye opening experience with an awesome ending for my brother and wife for making a great purchase!!

The best experience in purchasing car. I was in market for buying BMW 7 series and I came along with the list of the dealers and went thru couple dealers but all of them felt like they are just pushing to buy the car and most of us dont really like that kind of attitude I personally dont like to push or rush in and I went to Payless Auto Sales in Santa Monica and it was so easy nobody pressuring to sell you a car and they re very easy going and friendly before I even notice I choose the car and did the paper work and was very happy with my purchase it took Robert to do all the paper works less than half hour and I was in shock how easy and smooth it went after that I took couple of my friends to Robert as well and they were happy as well so thank to Robert we all are very happy with our purchases Thank you Robert and he is the person to see if you re in the market to purchase a car.

Volkan was incredibly nice and accommodating! My new car is gorgeous! When I noticed a scratch he immediately pointed it out and told me that he didn't patch it up because he wanted me to see it before they did. He had it buffed and repainted - then delivered it to my house when it was done. Very rare to find such honesty at a used car lot. We will be back soon to get my husband a new car!

I don't know why moms get attached to their old cars, but they do. Especially if it's been reliable and stable through the years. Like my mother in law's old Mercedes was. But its days of glory were long gone, and though it was difficult for her to accept, she finally agreed to a new car. We'd been looking around for a while, but happened to stop by Payless Auto Sales while heading back from the beach. I didn't think it would all happen as fast as it did, but we left with a 2008 E350 Mercedes. Robert was our salesman. He wasn't pushy but very knowledgeable. This car was everything she was looking for: it was absolutely stunning, low mileage, only had 1 previous owner, mint condition, and we got a really great deal on it. Like... really great.
So if you're looking for a new car, or a new used car I'd highly recommend this place. We've been to a ton of dealers and just walked out with an uneasy feeling. I really liked that the cars all had a carfax available so you know what you're getting yourself into. It was a really pleasant experience. She's had the car for a few weeks now and absolutely loves it.

Shopping around for a car can sometimes be a painstaking and frustrating process. It seems as though every dealer out there, well for the most part, will sell you anything as long as they get the sales commission, regardless if the car really is a fit for what you are looking for. I was without a car for almost two years living in LA. 2013 was the year that was to change. I began looking around, searching cars.com along with CarMax. Every car I looked at was over priced or way too many miles on an older engine.
I then decided to check out the local spots in Santa Monica, and discovered Payless Auto Sales. I talked with Robert right away with the inventory available and told him what I was looking for.
Tried out several different cars, but one stood out to me, and it was the one Robert felt was not the car for me due to its size. I loved the car, everything about it, loaded, leather interior, premium sound, low miles, amazing price, oh, and it was a Mercedes SLK 350 convertible.
For five weeks we worked on making the deal happen. Robert insisted I don't buy this car. My credit is not the greatest, so Robert did some serious magic wand waving and now I'm driving the best car I've ever owned. He stuck with me even though the deal seemed impossible to close. He had two buyers who were ready to buy the car cash in hand, but because of my diligence and persistence, Robert kept his word and we got the deal done. He even threw in brakes and an alignment for free.
I highly highly recommend Robert, and have referred everyone to him since my purchase. He's honest, genuine, hard working, committed to going above and beyond to make his customer happy.

My boyfriend and I had been using one car for about 2 years, between work, school, and the babysitter it all got hectic after awhile. Needless to say, it was time for a second car but we were very limited to what we could get we had set high standards on getting a car that we would be comfortable with from safety to financially and obviously a nice car! With that being said we weren't very set on any dealership we went to. Then, my boyfriend tony came across Payless auto sales. He called Robert and explained to him our situation he was very honest and helpful with everything. Before you knew it tony was driving home with a beautiful audi s4 . Robert is the go to guy very knowledgeable non pushy and really wants to help YOU out! He's been great with every little problem and question we've had has been helpful with financial situations and so easy going ad easy to talk to! I can't tell you enough how good of an experience this has been super smooth and super fast! He has his own mechanic so when the car started making a funny noise Robert didn't hesitate and took it to his mechanic right away! He even gave us a rental car for the days we would be without a car! If you need genuine service honesty and beautiful cars visit Robert!

Alper U:

I had a great experience at Payless! i bought my third car from there, and i never encounter with anything about these three cars. On the last experience, Robert (owner) didn't pressure me at all and gave me time to look around before coming out to check on me again. He was very honest, professional, friendly, and knowledgeable and he really knows his product. I finally decided on a car and was in and out of there very quickly. While I was considering the car, he came out with the Carfax without me even asking. The whole experience was absolutely hassle-free, unlike those other guys up the street ;). Thanks Robert !!!
