Do your homework before handing over your cash
Review for Jamie and Premier / Platinum Auto Gallery / Older name that I don’t recall You need to know what it is that your buying, and I emphasis “you”. Car dealers move inventory, cars come in and the dealers job is to sell the car so that to make room for the next round of cars that come in. If you want a car that 99% problem free, anti up and buy new. If you want a used car that is likely to be problem free, again anti up and pay a premium for low mileage or again at a dealership which will offer certified pre-owed at an extra cost. Now if you want to save money, then you take on the risk of likely getting a car with high mileage and or one that has been in an accident. Premier Auto deals specifically with this type of vehicle. This isn’t a scam, it’s a niche product that this dealer deals with, and this type of auto inventory while cheaper, comes whit a higher risk. And now back to my first statement, you need to know for yourself what it is that you are buying. High mileage cars will break down, this may happen 10k km down the road or the first week of ownership. The dealership only needs to show you the car fax and disclose what it knows about the vehicle, the rest is up to you. If you are going to lay down 2, 5, 10, 15, or 20 K dollars on a used car that is being offered significantly cheaper than other dealerships because it has high miles and or has been in an accident, spend the extra 200-500 dollars and have your mechanic check out the vehicle before you buy it. And if it breaks down in a week, know that the dealer who sold you the car is not at fault. (unless he hid something from you, but if you did your homework you should uncover everything you need to know before handing over your cash) I bought a car from Jamie at premiere last October and in my experience he did everything he needed to do to sell me the car. He gave me a price on my trade in (more on that later) gave me the car fax, and set a price for the deal that I agreed with. He allowed me to take the vehicle for my own inspection and consistently said to make sure that this was the right vehicle for me and that I needed to be comfortable with the car. I was not pressured at all and he worked with me the whole way. I was in the drivers seat for this deal, he just facilitated it. My car was it was high mileage (130k) and had a $15K insurance claim on it, but the result was it was around $8-10K cheaper than anywhere else in Canada. I did my research, and entered into the deal, which involved securing a second key from Jamie after the purchase, and I’m happy to say that Jamie delivered this key as promised a month later. So overall I am very happy with my transaction, mostly because I’ve now put 15k on this car and knock on wood nothing has broken down. But if the tranny did go, it would not have been the dealers fault, things do fail. Now here is the real value add to Premiere Auto, they deal in high mileage and accident cars, this is their bread and butter, they need high mileage inventory, and as such, my experience showed that Primiere offered by far the greatest trade in value on my old high mileage car. I got well over 100% more for my trade in at Premier than anybody else was offering, so this made my deal that much sweeter. I’m not saying you will get the same deal, but give them a try with your old high mileage trade in, you might be pleasantly surprised, I certainly was. So I would recommend Premier Auto, but please, please, please, don’t be cheep, spend a couple of hundred dollars (from the thousands that you are likely saving) and have the car checked out first, and if you don’t, don’t go blaming Premier for selling you car that breaks down, all car will eventually. Remember there is no such thing as problem free in the used car world, Your getting a deal from these guys for a reason do your homework before you hand over your hard earned cash. Especially on a cars with 200k + KM’s or that have accident histories. POST SCIPT: After writing this, it seems the company changed its name again and it continues getting bad reviews. I stand by what I said, but am somewhat concerned about all the name changes it just changed to Premium from something else when I dealt with them (Oct 2012) and now it is Platinum Auto Gallery however same guys and the same review on my end.

PLATINUM AUTO GALLERY (PREMIUM WHEELS INC) ARE CROOKS
I bought a Volvo from these guys few month back and took them to court so I was checking for a car and found a 2002 Jeep Cherokee and had the same address as Premium wheels so I called omvic and found out it's the same dealership operating under a different name, I talked to MUREEN HARDING at OMVIC, be aware of these guys search their real company name which is premium wheels inc and you will see what they are all about! they are located in Richmond Hill and they have been there for years and ripping people! watch out!!!!!!
Platinum Auto Gallery
After doing research on numerous dealerships while looking for a used car I came across this website that helped me out alot. I figured I would write a positive review so that other people that are researching used dealers could see the kind of experience you can get from used car dealers. The people at Platinum Auto Gallery took very good care of me. From the minute I stepped on the lot I felt at ease. The salesman was not pushy. He answered all my questions and educated me about every vehicle I looked at. I ended buying a 2002 VW Passat and absolutely love it. It had a few minor blemishes, but what used car doesn't? I was extremely happy with my experience and I would reccomend any of my friends or family on purchasing a car from them! -Very happy and loyal customer
