We first found out about Diablo Motors about 5 years ago when we were looking to buy a used M3 convertible. We went to several places and the prices were much higher than we wanted to pay, the dealers we encountered were not very impressive so we again went to another dealer which happened to be Diablo Motors and wow, what a difference! The cars were inside a showroom, sparkling clean, the prices of each were written on a big white board along with what the blue book was so you knew exactly what the mark up was - we were just very impressed from the start. We recently visited them again and they had moved to a bigger place, but nothing had changed. I would HIGHLY recommend Diablo Motors if you want a super clean high end car for the lowest price you'll find anywhere, without the hassles and stress buying a car usually is.

My wife and I first visited Diablo Motors to test drive an Audi she was interested in. She had a number of questions about Audis, Mercedes, and BMWs. We ended up purchasing a BMW from another dealer. Greg did not have the car she finally decided on at the time. We chose Diablo Motors to service the car because of how we treated and Greg's innate honesty. His staff has serviced our car for repairs and regular maintenance. Their work is exemplary. The car is always returned showroom clean. We have recommended Greg to friends and loved ones. I look forward to purchasing our next vehicle from Diablo Motors. Check them out. I promise that you will not be disappointed.

My husband and I decided that the time was right to begin looking for a new car last year. My husband knew Greg prior as he bought his first used car from Greg. I was must more hesitate when I started looking at a used car vs. a new car. I had SUCH a horrible previous experience buying a used car from a dealership in Sacramento (luckily) don't own that car anymore, that I wanted to either lease something we could afford or downgrade my wish list to get a car within our budget. My husband took me to Greg and he showed us what he had to offer. We decided to keep looking and explore what options we had for a new car or lease. Eventually we came back to Greg and decided to try his brokerage service. We knew what we wanted and what we wanted to pay out the door. We listed our must haves and our "it would be nice to haves" with Greg. He assured us that our car was out there, but was rare and it could take time. Being we were in no rush we placed our deposit and waited.
Greg called several times about opportunities he saw, and gave us all the information prior to buying a car meeting our list. We decided to wait until he found it. After a couple weeks from that time Greg called with not only the car meeting our must haves, but had MUCH MORE! We decided to see it. Greg let us drive it around, recommended we could have it for the weekend if we preferred, but we knew this is more than we could have asked for! We had the check the following monday and bought the car.
I couldn't be more happy that my husband told me to look at buying a used car. We saved probably over 60% of the cost of the car new, and ours still had factory warranty and fully loaded! We paid exactly what Greg said we would pay, and Greg never presurred us to buy the car after he found it. He was upfront, and had communication throughout the process.
Overall I got basically a brand new car, at the price point I could afford, and I couldn't be more happy about our new car. It's quite an upgrade and with a 2 year old baby girl gives us all the security we would want in a new car. If you are looking to buy a new car I would recommend talking to Greg first! I didn't have to downgrade or settle, I got to drive a great car at a great value!

Greg is a stand-up guy and runs a clean, professional business. His cars speak for themselves - all appear high-class and clean; the BMW I purchased runs great. The car-buying experience was simple and no-pressure - from the test drive to the inspection at an independent mechanic, Greg was ready with the necessary forms and simply allowed me to make my own decision. He demonstrated trust in me in several little ways - accepted a personal check, offered loaner vehicles, even offered to let me drive the car for several days while he was out of town to make sure I wanted it. He was always available by phone and made himself personally available nights and weekends. Finally, he honored the warranty; a cabin fan had been making an irritating squeal, and he replaced the $200 part at no charge. I highly recommend Greg and Diablo Motors for anyone looking to purchase a high-class used vehicle.
- Mike J. San Ramon, CA
- Kirsten C. Danville, CA
Greg is extremely helpful and honest. He was able to take all of my specifications and find exactly the right car for me. Handled all the paper work and made the car buying experience hassle-free and enjoyable.
- Jennifer K. Danville, CA
Great car buying experience. Greg showed me only the cars I was interested in. He answered all of my questions. After I bought the sweet BMW (I couldn't otherwise afford), he even had someone drive my old car back home. Plus, he's easy to look at, if ya know what I mean.
- Tim A. Vacaville, CA
Probably THE best car buying experience I have ever had. After seeing the car online the day it was posted I called and asked if I could see it that evening. I was coming from Sacramento, so it was going to be a late night getting to San Ramon. Greg graciously agreed to wait for me. When I showed up he was nothing but completely professional. No pressure, and all the information I asked for. Negotiation on the price was quick and easy. When I buy my next car there is no doubt in my mind I will start (and likely again finish) my search at Diablo Motors.
- Thomas V. San Ramon, CA
I bought a Chevrolet Cobalt at Diablo Motors a month ago, that was a pretty nice experience - so different from the ones I have had with over dealers in the bay area!
First of all, the car itself is really nice. I had it inspected by another mechanic before buying, he could not find any issue with it - and since I have had it, I have no issue to report either. It is just running fine, and it is quite enjoyable to drive it without worrying whether or when it will break down.
Another aspect was that Greg did not try to sell it super-actively like most dealers I have met do - he was there when I had a question, but also gave me time to evaluate the car when I needed and did not rush me at any time. He really KNEW about the car (unlike most car dealers, he is also running a mechanic business, hence does actually have technical skills).
Greg was also very clear explaining me how the DMV paperwork was working - which he completely handled anyway, but as a foreigner just arriving in the US I felt a need to better understand all that stuff.
In the end, that was a very good overall experience. Next time I want a used car, their inventory is the first I will be looking at.

Well, it's almost a year later and I'm finally writing my yelp review for Greg and Diablo Motors. Sorry, Greg. My experience was notably positive. I have bought several cars and this was my best experience yet. I never felt rushed or felt that I was being beguiled. Greg was very matter of fact and gave me all of the details of the sale and the vehicle straight up. The Prius has been as durable and efficient as Greg said it was. In the past year, I've taken it back and forth to Salem OR twice, San Diego 3 or 4 times, down to Coachella and then Death Valley last weekend for 4 days. Thanks again Greg.
- Val B. San Ramon, CA
We bought a car from Greg and now use Diablo Motors to service it. I cannot believe how available and easy-to-reach he is. He does care about his customers, works long hours, and always answers his cell phone. Thank you, Greg for the difference you make.
We didn't end up buying a car through Diablo Motors, but I would recommend their services to any of my friends or family and I would definitely work with them in the future to have an honest and pleasant car buying experience.
- Denise R. Pleasant Hill, CA
I found Diablo Motors by recommendation from a friend. They performed a long-needed tune up on my car, an older Jeep Grand Cherokee, and were fantastic in finding an electrical problem that might have been a much more expensive problem and fixed it for a fraction of the price. The staff I met when i took my car in were all pleasant and funny, engaging and welcoming. They put me into a snazzy loaner so I wouldn't miss a beat with my business calls and fixed all of the problems honestly and completely. Funny how you can feel grateful and like a business was sent from heaven...I loved my experience there and would recommend them to everyone. Those I know and those I don't. They deserve to be recognized and patronized. I even felt compelled to make a review here.
- Collin L. Chico, CA
I live in the upper North Valley where it is hard to find a used BMW's and not pay a high dealership price. My search took me from Chico to the Bay Area and finally found Greg's business on Craig's List. What attracted me to Diablo Motors was his price for this specific 2006- X5. His price was 20+% below what other dealers were asking for similar aged models, and "all" with higher mileage. Based on Kelly BB, his price was similar to a private party sale price which is reasonable. I was thankful that my purchase price had already been discounted well below retail. Further, I would not have to haggle with a dealership to get a good price. I believe we had spent less than 2 hours through the entire process from the test drive to the DMV paperwork.
Greg's business is not a typical auto dealership that often incurs both the high overhead and high auto prices that come with it. You are dealing directly with an owner who appears quite knowledgeable about his inventory. He was easy to talk to and did not impose any pressure on us. During the brief time we spent with him, we felt we were dealing with an honest and creditable person. After the purchase, I had a number of questions that he always responded to. In addition, I was impressed by how he takes care of his autos and his attention to detail. I now have a 2006 BMW with a car/engine that looks and drives almost like a new car.
"No", I cannot guarantee that the next used car I buy will be from Greg. But "Yes", I am 100% sure that he will be one of my first inquiries that I make when looking for our next auto. And "Yes", I would recommend him to a friend or family member without reservation.
- Stewart L. San Ramon, CA
We just completed buying our 4th vehicle from Greg at Diablo motors: a 2008 Prius. As with our prior purchases, it was an enjoyable experience from beginning to end. The cars have unfailingly been meticulously cleaned and prepared for sale; the test drive, question and answer session and the final purchase details painless. Greg was the usual congenial host and always ready to go out of his way to accomodate our needs and timing. Without reservation, we highly recommend Diablo Motors for your (and our!) next auto purchase.
- Jay F. Dublin, CA
Hi Greg, Just wanted to follow-up with my personal experience of purchasing a car from Diablo Motors specific to my recent situation needs.... "I had purchased my first 2001 S430 Silver Mercedes Benz that was in pristine condition from a friend in Danville over two years ago.... I diligently maintained, repaired, and kept my car serviced through the local Mercedes Benz dealer in Walnut Creek where it originally was purchased... I was very proud owning a Mercedes Benz... On 11-3-10, I was driving to Walnut Creek for an appointment at the Mercedes Benz dealership for $500 worth of Free Services afforded me but never to be received. I was rear ended in a severe traffic accident on 680N that took my precious Mercedes Benz car from me.... "it saved my life by giving up its own life instead".... My car was totaled and I felt robbed of my treasured possession... I was alive still but deeply sadden by my tragic lost and costly investment... If I had been driving any other "typical car", and rear ended with the collision force I endured, I would be dead or severely maimed as the outcome of that accident. The accident was on Wednesday, 11-3-10, and I was determine to find another 2001 S430 Mercedes Benz (an equal and suitable replacement). I went on-line to http://Autotrader.com, and immediately found another 2001 S430 Mercedes Benz offered at Diablo Motors in San Ramon, CA... It was in excellent condition (interior/exterior) as described in their write-up, similar mileage as my lost vehicle, and its denoted color was "Black Opal" (a very dark blue metallic). It had additional features and options that promoted its attractiveness, so I called Mr. Greg Meier (Owner/Broker) and setup an appointment for Saturday afternoon (11-6-10).... Greg was very accommodating with meeting me on such short notice as it was near his normal closing hours for Saturday... Upon my arrival, Greg and I talked and I inspected the vehicle, asked many questions and I told Greg of my recent vehicle accident... The description and photos at Diablo Motors on-line website (http://www.diablomotor...) clearly were in tune with the actual car's condition and appearance. I told Greg that I would like to have the Mercedes Benz dealership in Walnut Creek inspect the car too... Diablo Motors performs 200 inspections themselves on their cars so they are credible, safe cars and stands behind their cars on insuring their customers are satisfied with their purchases fully.... This is the "backbone" of Diablo Motors' customer service policy that their customers are satisfied with their purchases fully.... He agreed and I came back on Monday, 11-8-10 to pickup the Mercedes. The Mercedes dealership did a 27 points inspection and found about $2K worth of additional discrepancies... Greg willingly did about $1,400 worth of additional repairs (at his cost) to the vehicle with me taking care of the service item costs after purchasing the car... I purchased the car on Thursday, 11-11-10, and paid cash for the transaction that was informative and easy with Greg's attentive style... The car was detailed, waxed, and waiting for its new owner.... I was happy again with my Mercedes Benz replacement and believe it was "fate" that I found Diablo Motors... All the cars that Greg sells are pristine condition vehicles that exhibit the keen eye that Greg has established over his 16 years as a leading business owner in the SF Bay area. I had noticed a sound that was a concern while driving that would come and go... more pronounced at low speeds than normal driving speeds... but definitely a concern... and only when I was turning left. I contacted Greg at Diablo Motors and told him my concerns to which he graciously told me to stop by. The mechanic diagnosis of the problem determined that one of the Control arms and ball joints for the front suspension was defective...Greg told me to contact him again on 1/3/11 to setup an appointment... Greg told me that the problem would be fixed on his account... So an appointment was made on 1-6-11, Thursday. I dropped off my car at 9 AM, and given a loaner car (no cost) for the day... At 6:30 PM Greg called stating the problem was fixed. Greg explained that the LF Lower Control Arm and LF Ball Joint were defective/replaced and there was no charge for the repair (his cost was $835.74). My car also had a State-Of-Art Alignment completed at no additional cost to me (his cost was $169.95). My car now purrs and special thanks to "Greg" at Diablo Motors for his "extemporary customer service" to make his customers fully satisfied with their Diablo Motors' purchase. Diablo Motors has superseded my expectations for a superior car dealership that not only afforded high quality vehicles but provides excellent, affordable follow-up servicing and customer service. Greg's earned reputation for Diablo Motors far exceeds what I expected, but I am glad that "Fate" seems to be such a close friend to Greg Meier too.... and for crossing our paths... Sincerely, Jay Fehring

I bought a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee from Greg back in October. It was the best car buying experience I've ever had and the car is still running great. I will definitely check out Greg's inventory before buying another used car.
- Circus Animal S. Richmond, CA
We were looking for a used truck in a hot niche in the market. We had a laundry list of requirements and we didn't have time to run all over the place and check out leads while things sold out from under us. We called Greg and he did all the leg work. He found us exactly what we were looking for, even when we couldn't find it ourselves! He is great to work with, cheerful, and persistent in the hunt. We didn't even test drive it when we got to his place. We just bought it and drove it home. We've been driving the truck for a few months now with total satisfaction. We highly recommend Diablo Motors and Greg! He saved us a huge amount of time and hassle and delivered the truck we wanted.
- Scott S. San Jose, CA
I bought a motorcycle from the owner about 15 minutes after walking in place. Paid with a personal check and the motorcycle is great and the owner is a good guy. Clean fast transaction and I'm happy. May go back for a Beemer later...
- Richard S. Sacramento, CA
If you are in the market for a high quality pre-owned vehicle I would highly recommend Diablo Motors and Greg Meier. Unlike previous experiences of buying a late model car and immediately having to do work on the vehicle to bring it up to speed. I felt confident that there were no hidden surprises in the BMW I purchased from Diablo. I found the perfect car in amazing condition and I was equally impressed with the through inspection and subsequent work done on the vehicle prior to sell. The whole experience was a dream and I will be contacting Greg the next time I'm in the market. When I find someone I trust I keep going back.
- Gary N. Las Vegas, NV
After 14 years with the same vehicle it was time to buy a new car. A friend highly recommended Greg Meier with Diablo Motors to assist with the purchase. I worked with Greg for several months trying to find the car that fit my requirements. Greg was very professional, knowledgeable and most of all patient with me. My needs and parameters changed over the several months and Greg did a phenomenal job with understanding my ever changing requirements and eventually getting me a car the perfectly fit my needs.
Since I live in Las Vegas Greg made sure I had delivery of my car in a timely manner. I wish I lived in the Bay area so I could continue to work with Greg & Diablo. I would highly recommend his services and would recommend him to anyone looking for a vehicle.
- Amy M. Belmont, CA
I am a single mother and someone who doesn't know a lot about cars. I was looking for a car for lacrosse carpool for my son as I currently own a smaller sports car that four large boys can't fit it. The car will ultimately be his car in October when he turns 16. So, with that said I was looking for a good, dependable, and reasonable priced car. I searched Craigslist and private sellers but had a hard time finding guy friends to come with me to test drive the cars. Turns out I had forgotten all about Greg and Diablo Motors. I contacted Greg and gave him my price point and a general idea of what I was looking for. Within a week I drove off the lot with a great car and the peace of mind of knowing the vehicle had been inspected and was safe for me and my son. The follow up from Greg a couple of days later was a perfect touch for a business that gets such a bad wrap. I would recommend that everyone refer anyone looking for a used car to Diablo Motors for a definite "difference in a car buying experience" THANK YOU GREG!!
- Amber Z. Livermore, CA
Purchasing from Greg was the easiest car experience we've had. No hidden agenda's at Diablo. If you're looking for an honest dealer who's looking out for you, go see Greg.
- scott p. San Ramon, CA
The car-buying experience at Diablo Motors was exceptional - low stress, informative, down-to-earth, every question answered thoroughly, every concern addressed or remedied.
Walking into a dealership or another large operation, one is engaged in the automotive equivalent to buying a suit off the rack. With Greg and Diablo Motors, the experience is more like having a suit custom made.
Greg takes the time to fully understand your needs and objectives before he goes to work. Then he identifies the best vehicle for you - regardless of whether it's sitting on his lot at the moment or is out in the marketplace. His function is similar to a buyer's agent in a real estate transaction. He identifies the attributes you're looking for and then puts his extensive automotive knowledge to work for you to determine the best possible solution for you.
We are extremely satisfied with the 2008 Suburban we purchased from Greg. Although the vehicle is sound, our satisfaction is largely driven by the exceptional customer service Greg delivered to us - before, during and after the sale.
We highly recommend Greg and Diablo Motors for simplifying the car-buying experience, making us comfortable with the process, and placing us into a clean, safe, well-running vehicle at a highly-attractive price.
- Rich S. Pleasant Hill, CA
Buying a car at Diablo Motors was quick and easy. No hassle over the price. No high-pressure sales. No push to buy other vehicles or ancillary products for the car. No problems.
Greg was very easy to work with.
The car was in good shape.
Two thumbs up! I recommend visiting Diablo Motors first when you want to buy a used car.
- t b. San Ramon, CA
I met Greg a few years ago. Recently having a need for a car I gave him a call. He remembered me (impressive), and invited me down to his showroom. I failed to make the appointment as we had agreed and Greg showed no resentment or pressure when we spoke next to reschedule. I was on a tight budget and the only thing I knew was, what I did not want. Greg patiently allowed me to test drive just about anything my heart desired and showed me continued respect and compassion. More often than not, I would have at least one if not all of my children with me. This did not seem to bother Greg and he was always friendly toward them. I did not want to settle but seemingly I was going to have to, as the car I wanted was outside of my budget. The cars that were in my budget just weren't going to make me happy; day in and day out I would show up to purchase one in my budget and leave again with out a car. Greg continued to show extreme patience with my indecisiveness and continued to welcome me back whenever I called, emailed or appeared at his showroom. I wasn't really indecisive you see, I knew which car I wanted but with Champagne taste and a beer budget, it wasn't practical. Well I drove away yesterday in my new BMW. It has all the bells and whistles I wanted; the color exterior and interior I desired. Yes, it was outside of my budget but Greg worked with me to be able to afford the purchase and even handled the financing. Thank you Greg. I won't buy a car anywhere else!
- Robert L. San Ramon, CA
If a low-price isn't your priority, and a peace of mind is, then give Diablo Motors a try.
One thing I enjoyed about Greg is that he is extremely honest; you'll know what your buying without any hidden problems. However, expect to pay a premium used price without much room for negotiation like you would find elsewhere- such as Mission Blvd's dealers or elsewhere on Craigslist. Each time I've went to Diablo to investigate a Jeep, I usually find one of similar quality and condition for 30-35% less at other dealers- this includes negotiation and a full day of calling around and haggling. I think Greg's business is perfect for the Diablo Valley- most residents seeking a used car want in-and-out as quickly as possible, knowing they bought a car in great condition and one that was thoroughly inspected.
Greg markets and sells quality, not quantity- which has the upside of you more likely getting a great car, but paying a higher price. Greg's game plan is making every vehicle look immaculate- steam cleaning the engine compartment, shampooing the carpet and upholstery, and waxing the exterior- surprisingly, most dealers just wash the car and vacuum the carpet (their focus on quantity). The dealership is also well maintained and clean.
If you're going to buy a warranty, then shop the entire Bay Area for the best price, regardless of the dealership. If you're a great negotiator and haggler, or if you know how used car dealerships work, you may also want to look elsewhere. If you want a nice car fast, without a hassle and would like to avoid a warranty- all for a small premium- then meet with Greg.
My advice for anyone seeking a used car: Wait until after Christmas, but before New Years Day (dealers want to unload their inventory at this time). In December after meeting with Greg, I found another dealer willing to sell me 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee in great condition with 46k miles for $9,100 +tax/license, when it's value was $16,100!!! Shop around, and don't let sales people pressure you (Greg will not force or pressure you into anything, another plus). Negotiate over the phone, never in person. Figure your price with the dealer over the phone, and obtain financing through a third party, such as a bank or credit union- then you can go to the dealership with a check and a great interest rate. If possible, never trade in your car. Never buy a warranty at the dealership- search online. I personally recommend WarrantyDirect.com.

First I want to say that this being the only the THIRD review in YELP on Diablo Motors is one of the really, really bad things about YELP. There have been numerous glowing reviews that have been deleted from YELP for rediculous reasons, totally unfounded beliefs that so many good reviews must be fishy, etc. I am YELPING about YELP.
So i write this review not knowing when it will be yanked like the rest.
Greg and Diablo motors are the best. For anyone freaked out about by buying an out-of-warranty BMW.. this is the ONLY place to go. Greg is honest to a fault, passionate about Beemers, a mechanic himself with a crew that will work on any car you buy from him. He picks his own cars, certifies them and will even offer an in store warranty which eased my anxiety about buying my 2003 530i sport with 80K miles on it. Now I am the proud owner of a car I only dreamed of owning in the past.
Any problems are fixed promply. It's the best experience I've had buying car, new or used. I refer all my friends to him.
- Elaine F. San Jose, CA
My family has bought our last 3 cars from Greg and Diablo begining in 1993 and plan to buy the 4th car in the spring for our college student. Greg has delivered to us exactly what we ask for and more! All cars from the 91 Volvo 940T, Acura 3.2 and the most recent BMW are the best cars for the best service and price. Why go anywhere else?
- Dale B. Danville, CA
I have bought 3 cars from Diablo Motors over the past 6 yrs. They are GREAT!!
- Carolyn C. WA
We have been buying cars from Greg for at least 10 years. We moved from San Ramon, Ca to Washington State 6 years ago and still continue to head to San Ramon to buy from Greg. We have total conidence in the quality, price and maintenance of the vehicle we will get from him. We even put in an order to find a specific vehicle for our son that he did not purchase until he had what he knew to be a great deal and great solid vehicle for him. For that he has earned our complete trust. Something you do not find these days with used vehicle dealers.
Buy with the high level of confidence when you work with Greg at Diablo Motors. He does it all and continues to work with you long after.. Please feel free to email me any questions you may have.

Greg has a great business. His show room is indoor so if it is raining you don't have to look at his cars and get wet. His cars are very clean like they are new. His prices are under most other Dealers and he offers a warranty at no cost. I wish I could afford the M5 he has but maybe next year.
- Roger S. Danville, CA
When you find a company that provides personal service, the lowest prices and easy access, you stay with them. That's why we have purchased three cars from Diablo Motors and will go there first next time we are looking for a car.
- Vic R. Livermore, CA
I bought an '01 Porsche Boxster from Greg almost three years ago, and it's still a pleasure to start up every morning. Unlike my '75 MG, I don't have to whisper a silent prayer when I turn on the ignition. My car starts. That's important to me. I've had two Porsche mechanics (different dealers) tell me I was sold a solid and well-maintained car. Now Greg does my car's maintenance, which saves me lots of money. Actually, almost half the price a dealer would charge. So, yeah, I'd buy another car from him. He's a nice guy, too.
- Deron A. Loomis, CA
I bought my first car from Greg ?? A long time ago! Since then between myself and my immediate family, we have purchased at least 10 cars from Greg. Currently I drive an Expedition, my brother an Acura TL, other brother, 5 series BMW, my daughter, Toyota Avalon, originally purchased by my Mom and all from Greg. Hmmm, must be more than 10 now that I think about it? We love the service and convenience provided not to metion the GREAT prices. I would not consider going anywhere else, neither should you.

Once my warrenty ran out on my 2003 BMW 330ci I wanted to find a non dealer to service my car. I met Greg at one of the East Bay Meet & Greets, put on by the Golden Gate Chapter, BMW CCA. Greg also runs an ad in the GGC magazine, the BOMBE. I decided to give his shop a try and was very pleased. My car had to spend the night at Diablo Motors and Greg let me borrow a sporty convertible till my car was ready. The work on my car was done very professionally and I was kept informed along the way. When I picked up my car it was spotless, inside and out. Greg also gives a discount for being a member of the Golden Gate Chapter BMW Club. I'll be using Diablo Motors for maintenance on my car in the future.
- Adam L. Danville, CA
I used to hate buying cars. Until I met Greg at Diablo Motors. A friend who had already used Greg for 6 car purchases/sales referred me to Greg and I've been a loyal customer ever since. I've used Diablo Motors to sell 3 of my cars and I've bought two from them. The cars I purchased were in outstanding condition and have been wonderful. The three sales transaction were handled professionally by Greg and I was very pleased with the outcome. I have also used Diablo Motors to service my cars and their level of service and care is better than any dealership I've ever dealt with. Greg has moved from being just a car guy to being my friend and I have recommended him and Diablo Motors to several of my friends. I certainly plan on continuing to use him for all my automotive needs. I can't recommend Diablo Motors enough. Best "auto" experience I've had.
- Paul L. Walnut Creek, CA
I use Diablo Motors for all the service on my BMW. I already owned it before I found them.
They always have the car done on time and as agreed and do the work very professionally.
I have also referred friends to Diablo Motors to purchase vehicles and they just love the way they were treated and love their car.
- Jose L. Dublin, CA
The car buying experience was very positive. No pressure and pricing is fair. We felt very comfortable transacting with Greg that we bought 2 cars at one time. I have received excellent after-market service. Whenever I have a concern, I am able to take the car to the shop and they accommodate me promptly. With the maintenance contract, they've taken care of things with no questions asked. I strongly recommend Diablo Motors!
- Jim G. San Ramon, CA
I finally bought a car the right way! For years, I was a new car guy but I decided that it was time to try a "gently used" car. I had always wanted a 7 series BMW; Greg found exactly what I was looking for. Price was great, service top notch, and I am driving one of my dream cars for a fraction of the new price. I have a full warranty and they are always glad to see me for oil changes or maintenance.
Why buy new???
Thank you Greg and staff!
- Donna M. Diablo, CA
My husband and I have purchased three cars from Diablo Motors; a Jetta, a Lincoln, and a Mercedes S600. What a variety! If they don't have the car you want, they will get it for you. Their service does not end with the sale, they keep on helping you as long as you own the car. Everything about this business is the highest, except for their prices. We would not buy a car anyplace else.
- Lloyd J. San Leandro, CA
I purchase my BMW from Diablo Motors and have been smiling ever since. They are a 10 out of 10. Their service, pricing and professionalism were unbelievable. I also purchased their in-house warranty which I have utilized with nothing but positive attitude. I just drop off the car EVERY 5,000 miles for maintenance while I use their loaner car. When I had a slight vibration certain speeds, they patiently drove the car with me to make sure that there was no confusion as to what the car was doing. They determined that the front bushings were slightly worn and replaced them instantly. They also replaced the rotors as they detected some spots which 'might' marginally add to the vibration--Preventive maintenance. Not a dime came out of my pocket. Very pleased with Diablo Motors. I highly recommend them. Thank you for making premium car purchasing pleasant.
Best car buying experience ever. Greg is a great guy, I will never buy a car anywhere else again!
I keep my cars for a long time, so I have not bought that many. But I now know the vast difference between buying from a dealership and buying from Diablo Motors. I stumbled onto Diablo Motors on accident on Craigslist. I just assumed it was your run of the mill dealership. You know, the kind where they don't know much about the cars, don't care about you and only want to suck the most money out of you as possible. I came to find that Diablo Motors is in fact one guy running a nice little car broker business.
Greg is up front and knowledgeable about the cars he sells. I was interested in a Chevy Tahoe and it turns out Greg had just driven it on a 1500 mile trip to and from Idaho. So he was quite knowledgeable about the particular vehicle and offered any and all the information I cared to know about it.
As others have said, the price is what it is. There is no haggling as there is at a traditional dealership. However, I found the price to be more than fair. Greg let me take the vehicle on a test drive myself. I told my wife and she said "He let you take it out by yourself?! Wow, there still are nice, trusting people out there."
Overall experience was a no pressure sale. Just open, honest and straight-forward. I will come back for servicing my vehicles. When I am ready to buy again, this will be my first stop.
