Does anyone have any experience with buyavette.net? They appear to have some nice Corvettes on their website

I found my 2012 GS CE 3LT 6M, w/ 9700 miles at BuyAVette.com in Atlanta, GA. I had to put $500 down to hold it while I got my ducks in a row. In putting down the deposit I lost my leverage in negotiating the price down or have the oem runflats w/ 5/32" replaced. Otherwise, I was pleased with the transaction and absolutely thrilled with the car! Had it shipped on an open trailer rather than enclosed one.

I bought a car from them 4 years or so ago. At the time it was a good transaction. Fair price for my car, fair trade in value. I was pleased.

I live in Metro Atlanta and went to Buyavette when I first started looking. Nice showroom with some beautiful old Vettes. Their warehouse/ garage had at least 25 other Vettes of all generations. The outside front lot had another 15 or so newer Vettes. The salesman (Jan) who helped me was certainly nice and mellow. No high pressure at all. No problem with taking test drives either. I spend several hours there, but I just wasn't ready to buy yet. I thought their prices were a little high, but I really didn't try to negotiate with them. I ended up buying my car from a private owner, but all in all I had a good experience there and have talked to several local people who bought from them and they were all happy doing business with them.

Bought mine from them a few years ago. I spent a year looking and had specific things I wanted. They tend to have pretty high quality cars and if you look at the cars online and review the details they provide, you will see that they rate all aspects of the car. I have had no problems and the price was reasonable, perhaps a bit high, but the car was high quality and I looked at many. They were not hard sell at all. In fact, the owner took us on a tour of the older cars in their shop across the highway. It is definitely worth a visit and an opportunity to look at the old vettes as well.

They seem to cater to the opposite of the Craigslist market. They have great cars, that are priced accordingly. Want it cheaper? They can probably find you a shoebox. Their prices never seem unreasonable, but they're not low either. I would buy from them in a heartbeat.

I have purchased 2 from them both sight unseen. No high pressure at all. Visited them to check the status of repairs on my most recent purchase last fall. To see the showroom was worth the trip. Both were as described .

I talked to David and he was very helpful and if the car they had did not have a deposit on it as we were negotiating I would of had an '09 C6Z. I would deal with them.

Bought an '07 in November. Jan was VERY helpful! Even after purchase! You are looking at a used car. used cars are used cars. use your do diligence. Pricing is fair and they have good used 'vettes. I would buy from Jan again. very happy.

I consigned my 65 Coupe with them a couple of years ago. They got me a very good price for it and they were very timely and prompt with payment to me. I consider them very good people to do business with.
