    Great experience!
    by Julyssa N. from San Diego, CA | July 11, 2020

    I just purchased a vehicle today from Baldwin Auto Sales. Don was very helpful, professional and a pleasure to work with. The vehicle was in great position, the purchase process smooth, the facilities clean and orderly and the service was very pleasant. As we walked out the door with our keys, the owner came out to wish us well which was super nice. I highly recommend Baldwin to anyone looking for great condition used vehicles and I sincerely wish them the best with their business!!

    Wonderful Experience
    by Corby Warren from Escondido | August 21, 2019

    Came into Baldwin to purchase a used car for my daughter. Don was nothing short of patient and knowledgeable. He explained how they obtain their cars, who thier mechanic is, and what exactly was done to the car to get it ready to sell. In all I purchased the car in less than an hour. Quick, Easy, Painless procedure. Thanks again Don

    Thieves
    by BVB Fan from Vista,Ca | November 27, 2018

    Unfortunately I bought car at this place. They lied about car condition. Someone was working on the car and everything was covered to hold for a time. I discovered after 20 days small leak under the hood but wasn't just a leak. There is big time issue and some broken bolts on the engine. Of course when I asked guy at Baldwin, He said that the car is in great and excellent condition. No issues at all. Lying is the best what they know. I wish the karma will do same to them. Worst experience in my life.

    Second class treatment
    by Fencedwlr33 from San Diego, CA | October 19, 2018

    I didn’t go to a used car lot to find upstanding individuals of character. I read reviews and their website and I was struck by the apparent racism, several reviews. The website says it is an “English speaking” business. ?? Assuming this is to deter non-English speaking business, if you could in fact read their website to begin with. Stupid. Usually a business will say the inverse, Hablamos Espanol, an inclusive statement. This is the US, all businesses are English speaking. So, I’m assuming they take issue with Mexicans. I’m half Mexican with Mexican last name. I arrived. I was told to work out my financing before test drive. Don knew nothing about the car, what he thought he knew was wrong. I had owned the car before. Right after test drive he just assumed it was a done deal. I don’t need high pressure sales but there was no courtesy or consideration. I wanted the car. So we take care of everything. Told me earlier I would be financed at estimated 8%, learned it 13%, ok I have poor credit. I give him $2000 down. The insurance company needs odometer reading. I ask for the key and he won’t give it to me, instead he goes to open up car and stays with me with the key. I just gave him more than the trade in value of the car and I still have to be supervised on a lot that’s blocked at each driveway. Apparently English speaking criminals frequent the lot. We walk back into offices and I can clearly see his father, I’m assuming, passed out sitting up in his office chairs. Weird to do at work with glass panes and customers. Had I found the car I wanted in the condition I needed elsewhere, I would’ve ripped him and left. Worst car buying experience I’ve ever had. Treated like a second class citizen.

    Another satisfies customer
    by Jimmy Fernandez from South San Francisco Ca | August 03, 2018

    I found a car I was looking for online that was here....The problem was I was over 400 miles away. I spoke to Don about the vehicle & it was still available. A less than a week later I flew in went straight to Baldwin's. Even though Don was busy with another customer he made sure I was comfortable by giving me water & waiting inside where it was air conditioned. He finally had a chance to get the car I was interested in. The car looked great & Don let me take it for a test drive and the rest is history.... I drove back in a new used car.... My only gripe is, I had to walk to the bank in 90+ degree weather.... Lucky it was a couple blocks away.

    Owners are So Calm and Professional!
    by Shareen G from Encinitas ca | April 17, 2018

    I just bought a car for my dad at Baldwin Auto Sales and the process was so quick and easy. There was absolutely no hassle, no long waiting and no up selling. The owners are so professional and pleasant to work with. They were very patient and calm with my dad who can be very demanding. Thank you so much for your professionalism and making the process quick and easy.

    Easiest car buying experience
    by Mike B from Menifee, CA | March 03, 2018

    The car I wanted to look at was better than advertised. Don was upset easy to deal with and the transaction was the smoother and faster than with any other car I ever bought. If need a vehicle, go see what they have. You will not be disappointed!

    Good Dealer
    by Andres Atencio from Tehachapi, CA | July 09, 2017

    Bought a 2011 Dodge Journey from Don Baldwin in Escondido. The guy was super nice and patient. I never felt pressured to buy and simply showed up in jeans and a tee shirt, he thought nothing of it and offered a test drive of the car. I told him I had my own financing and needed some help with getting everything together. He talked to my bank and helped me get all my paperwork in line. Was super patient and helpful. I was reading these other reviews AFTER THE FACT, and am really surprised. Maybe I didn't deal with the dad or brother, but these guys seem like a legit family trying to do the best they can. Went home with the car that day. He was super honest about the car, pointing out chips and scratches and rust, but never seemed to try and describe the car for more than it was. My 90 day warranty is still valid, and I am sure if something goes wrong they would gladly honor it... I hope. Lol. If I'm buying again, I will definitely look here first.
