One-Day Used Car Sales Event March 19 in Costa Mesa


(Costa Mesa, March 4, 2005) — Do you already have a tax refund in hand? Are you looking for a wide variety of quality late-model cars to comparison shop in one location?

The Automobile Club of Southern California's Administrative Office at 3333 Fairview Road, at South Coast Drive, will become an "instant dealership" on Saturday, March 19. Car buyers can see hundreds of pre-owned vehicles on sale at discounted prices through Enterprise Car Sales.

Auto Club members may visit the lot during sale hours from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Approximately 50% of Southern California drivers are Auto Club members.

Financing and auto insurance will be available on site. Potential buyers may get pre-approved in advance by applying online at and have a check in hand when arriving at the sale. Trade-ins also are welcome. Car buyers may enter the site off Susan Street. Auto Club members may call 1-800-943-0000 for more information.

"Well-running pre-inspected used cars are attractive to consumers because of higher and higher new car prices, now averaging more than $23,000," said the Auto Club's Automotive Services Manager David Cavano. "Test drives of late model vehicles will be offered," he added.

High quality domestic and import luxury cars, SUVs, and pick up trucks will be sold at pre-arranged prices. Each car sold comes standard with a 12-month/12,000-mile limited powertrain warranty, plus a seven-day/1,000 mile buy-back guarantee. It also comes with a year of Roadside Assistance.

Each vehicle has passed the Auto Club's 86-pt. Vehicle Inspection. Vehicles have been inspected by an independent Auto Club Approved Auto Repair Facility. The inspection — usually offered for $89.95 — alleviates pitfalls associated with buying a used vehicle.
