Customer Testimonials for Auto Paradise of Texas
Nathan A. - 2006 Mercedes SLK350 37K Miles
Absolutely a first rate automobile dealership. Superior service and communication. I am very happy with my Mercedes Benz purchase there and would do it again. You should too. Thank you Shawn!
Michael W - 2002 Ford F250 7.3L 127K Miles
I found a unicorn at Auto Paradise of Texas! I found the sweetest Ford F-250 7.3L Turbo Diesel Crew Cab that anyone could hope to find. It’s like the truck time traveled brand new off the lot from 2002 (I could not find the flux capacitor...I looked everywhere for it). This was my first time finding a vehicle on the internet and having it shipped to me. Shawn made the process a breeze and facilitated a third party inspection. Shawn did everything he said he would do and more! Excellent experience!
Tad E. - 2016 Toyota Corolla
Assisting my son with the purchase of a vehicle from APT was an excellent, stress free experience. The vehicle was in amazing “like new” condition and well worth the visit. The loan process with the Lender, recommended by Shawn, was a cakewalk-took less than an hour on a Saturday afternoon and Shawn was available that evening for us to return and pick up the vehicle, very accommodating! This was a very refreshing end to a day that had earlier consisted of me haggling with a Toyota dealership over excessive, unnecessary fees for a bogus customer care plan and their inability to understand what it would take to reasonably earn my son’ business. There was no haggle with Shawn, his vehicle was indeed better priced and in better condition than the one offered by the big dealer just west of the metroplex.
Scott M - 2001 and 1999 Honda and Mazda CRV 60K Miles and Miata 32K Miles
Shawn made the used car buying experience extremely satisfying and comfortable. I bought two vehicles in very good condition. One as a replacement for my daughter whose car was totalled by a rear end collision. The second because well, call it a mid life crisis. Shawn allowed for both vehicles to be checked over by an independent mechanic at my request (my expense of course). He arranged shipping and delivery. First time, I have been courageous enough to purchase used vehicles that I hadn't seen and driven. With Shawn and Auto Paradise of Arlington TX, I would definitely do it again and I'd recommend it to anyone.
Kristen E, - 2012 Chevy Suburban 4X4
Very prompt responses, professional service, reasonable pricing of vehicles.
Albert T - 2010 Honda Pilot Touring
5 STARS AND ADD ANOTHER 5. It's hard to trust a car dealer but APT is is indubitably a dealership you can TRUST to put you in a ride that you will be more than pleased with. We recently purchased a 2010 Honda Pilot and it was practically immaculate. We were beyond ecstatic when it was shipped to us. Yes, it was an online purchase (never physically saw or test drove the vehicle being 9 hours away). All I can say is, SHAWN.....thanks for your HONESTY and guidance in every step with this transaction. You made it a breeze and the Pilot was even better than your posted pictures....it EXCEEDED our expectations cosmetically and mechanically. I'll definitely come looking for you when in the market for another ride!
Clay and Beverly S. (AND JAKE) - 2011 Toyota Sienna
Reading all these reviews makes me wonder what we can possibly say that hasn't already been said. We also had a great experience and have a great respect for Shawn's open, honest, personal way. He knows cars and integrity is clearly important to him. He is who he says he is (read his comments on his page). We bought a 2011 Sienna and it's a great car. Also loved Jake (the dog) who is certainly a contributor to the warm atmosphere of Auto Paradise of Texas.
Brian G. - 2009 Saturn Sky Redline Ruby Red Special Edition 51K Miles
Internet purchase sight unseen of a sweet 2009 Saturn Sky Redline Ruby Red Special Edition. Shawn was amazing and took care of handling all details from top-to-bottom. I felt totally comfortable dealing with him and he was lightning-quick with responses to all of my inquiries. He assisted with off-site inspection and transport and went above-and-beyond to provide excellent professional service and care.
Nathan C - 2008 Chevy Silverado 4X4 LTZ
I'd buy from them again. Shawn picked me up at the airport on a Sunday morning in the truck I bought. We finished up the paperwork in less than a half hour and I was headed back to South Dakota. Very efficient.
Terrence - 2008 Hummer H2
Very professional and quick service even at 1000 miles away. Very pleased with the listing, it's exactly how they subscribed it.
Zach and Althea - 2013 Ford Escape Titanium 18K Miles
Auto Paradise of Texas made car buying a breeze! I would highly recommend them to anyone!
Mary K - 2009 Volvo C70
If I am thinking of getting a car, I always turn to Auto Paradise of TX. Even though that is rarely, given that they are in great shape and weather our use well, I have gotten two cars from Shawn now. The first one, I just sold to my college-age son when I got a second from Auto Paradise, so that he doesn't settle from a lemon from another dealer. Shawn flips on it's head the saying that one can't trust a car dealer. He is very trustworthy and a pleasure to work with. I recommend Auto Paradise of TX to many people and thought it was time to post this recommendation online.
Lee G. - 2007 Ford F150 22K Miles
Bought a 2007 f-150 with only 22k miles on it. Amazing service and quick, in and out. They know the best places to get car loans with low interest rates. Never been happier. Will by from him again. Thank you!!
Nancy P. - 2009 Lexus RX350 48K Miles
They bent over backwards to accommodate our schedule to look at a car. We bought it and are very pleased with it. Just got my tags and excited to get them on. Thank you again for a great vehicle that my mechanic can’t even find anything wrong to correct. Will drive two hours again next time they have a vehicle that meets our needs and requirements.
Sandra P. - 2003 Chevy Silverado 4X4 Duramax
Shawn at Auto Paradise of Texas is top notch. I was looking for a good used truck for my niece who is a cadet at the USAF Academy. Needed to find a reliable truck that would fit her budget and allow her to pull horse trailers. With her being in Colorado and us being in Texas we had to ensure everything was right. We found the perfect truck, a 2003 Chevy Duramax with 156K miles. Not sure how Shawn finds these low mileage trucks but this was perfect and they fixed every little detail on it; looked and felt brand new for a being 16 years old vehicle. Shawn and his staff then catered to my schedule and worked with me to drive the truck and then catered to my brother's schedule as he had to drive in from Louisiana to get the truck for his daughter. Outstanding service, great vehicle and a fantastic no-haggle price. Oh I drove the truck and had two neighbors stop me when they saw it; both wanted to buy it if we didn't. Sorry friends this truck is sold! Thanks again Shawn keep up the great work; I'll be sending you business!!!!
David and Cindy J. - 2007 Ford F150 Super Crew 84K Miles
Very happy with our purchase! Love the “by appointment” warehouse approach vs. the usual showroom. All three trucks we looked at were really nice. Good selection of nice vehicles, and a pleasure to work with. Highly recommend.
Camerin - 2007 Lexus ES350 with 60K Miles
I purchased a 2007 lexus es350 from this dealership and I couldn't be more happy. It seems like they traveled back in time, bought the car, came back to the future, and sold it to me. The car looks brand new for car that is over 10 years old and it only had 60,000 miles on it. Most if not all of the cars here are in prestigious condition with clean titles and detailed history. The car buying process literally took less than 15 minutes. Sean, the owner who was the one that also sold me the car was up front about his intentions and was willing to meet me in the middle when it came to price. He didn't play all of the ridiculous game that other dealerships play. This is the only place I would buy a car because its not stressfully drawn out like other places. Highly recommended.
Debra B. - 2005 Honda Pilot
Craig L. - 2012 Jeep Wrangler
This was a great experience all the away around. I had been looking for a Jeep Wrangler for my soon to be 18 year old son, but looking for something that was in good condition and on which he could afford the payments. Shawn had a great car at a great price. After a brief conversation we struck a deal with which I was very happy. Nice staff, clean cars, and quick transaction. Someone even put gas in the car while I was doing the paperwork; so they pay attention to the little details. He had us on our way in no time at all. I highly recommend.
James R - 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 Crew Cab
I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a nice vehicle and great service!
Doug K. - 2007 Saturn Sky Redline
We just purchased an '07 Saturn Sky Redline and we couldn't be happier with the experience. The car is in great condition and the price was beyond competitive. You can tell these guys love cars, and want to share their passion with the customer. Shawn was really easy to deal with and we never felt any pressure. They even stayed late so we could pick up the car that night after i got held up at work. I can't recommend them enough, the next time i am in the market for a vehicle they will be the first place I look.
Matt B. - 2012 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite
We had a wonderful experience with Shawn and the Auto Paradise team. They were great from start to finish and we love our new car! Thanks again and we are happy to be part of the family.
Eric D. - 2009 Chevy Suburban 2500 4X4
What a great buying experience. I bought a 2009 Chevrolet Suburban 2500 4x4. Shawn directed me to a place for financing that approved me for a loan at 3.70% for a 10 year old vehicle! That alone was worth shopping at Auto Paradise. But then Shawn wanted to address a couple of minor issues with the vehicle before delivery and went above and beyond what we agreed on. Overall a class act. I would buy here again and would have no problem recommending Auto Paradise of Texas to my family and friends. Thanks Shawn. Love the suburban.
Cindy J. - 2007 Dodge Grand Caravan 44K Handicapped
Great car at a great price! We bought a 2007 Dodge Grand Caravan with only 44,000 miles on it and with a Bruno Joey lift in back. Was delivered to us very quickly and we are very happy with it. Shawn did a great job of facilitating the purchase. Would recommend!
Charles S. - 2008 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab 64K Miles
I recently purchased a 2008 Nissan Frontier from Auto Paradise of Texas. The whole process was smooth and stress free. I called Shawn to set up an appointment for a test drive, and he was very friendly and patient with the initial questions I had. When my wife and I arrived for the appointment the next morning, the vehicle was available for us to test drive and look over with no rush, no pressure at all. Again, Shawn was happy to field our questions and discuss details about the vehicle and the buying/selling process. He was honest, helpful, and a pleasure to talk with. We ended up having a great visit and went back home to Louisiana with a very nice truck! I will not hesitate to check back with Shawn the next time I’m in the market for a vehicle.
Ron and Gabriela - 2006 Toyota Sequoia 89K Miles
My mom and I bought her a used SUV here a month ago. The sales experience was no pressure, he answered all our questions and gave us time to think about our decision. We got a fair price and a great new to us vehicle. I would buy from them again.
Austin B - 2007 Jeep Liberty 4X4 61K Miles
Awesome experience, super friendly and answered all my questions with the upmost diligence. The ultimate question is whether or not you'd recommend Auto Paradise to friends or family, and I definitely would! Stand up gentlemen and would do business with them again.
Shane S. - 2004 Pontiac GTO
Shawn was very helpful and got me into to a great car. Definitely would recommend giving them a look!
Houston A. - 2004 Lexus 1 Owner SC430 with 62K Miles
My Dad called Shawn Monday evening at 7pm. Made a deal on this sweet Lexus SC430. All paperwork was handled through email. He handled shipping arrangements at an unbelievable fantastic price and car was delivered by 2pm Friday. Very professional, courteous, and honest!! Car was exactly what Shawn said it was!!
Robert T. - 2013 Lexus IS250 c 13K Miles 1 Owner!!!
Shawn at Auto Paridise of Texas went the extra distance to make our deal work on our Lexus IS 250C. Would buy again and give them a 5 star rating!
Brandon T - 2000 Lexus LX470
All I can say is; Awesome service! Shawn was very helpful and made the whole process quick and effortless. He put extra effort in making sure I was happy. Thanks again Shawn, for making me a proud owner of a new (to me) Lexus LX470!!!
Charles H. - 2002 Ford Sport Trac 4X4 87K Miles
Lynn E. - 2004 Ford Ranger
Purchased my 2004 Ford truck from Shawn a few weeks ago. Excellent vehicle and even better purchasing experience. Shawn isn't "selling" cars. He's building customer relationships. Offering a quality product at a fair price, honest info disclosure, and going the extra mile to ensure the customer's expectations are exceeded is a solid recipe for ensuring he has repeat customers for life. Don't expect a slick, three piece suited sales guy looking for a commission to buy his next meal. Instead, expect a hard working car guy owner that is real. No frills and the sales process is as quick as can be expected, only slowed down in order to ensure all the Texas state regulations are satisfied. In the market? Then you have to put this place on your list to visit.
Cheryl K - 2014 Jeep Rubicon (7K in options)
Awesome and efficient experience with this company. Shawn went above and beyond to help with this purchase and shipping of my 2014 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. Would HIGHLY recommend!
Kelby D. - 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 5.9 diesel with 89K Miles
Had a very good experience with auto paradise of Texas, drove 4.5 hours to see the truck that was exactly how it was described. Transaction went smoothly, Shawn the owner is a very down to earth guy. Would highly recommend this dealership!
Jim C. - 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited AWD 71K Miles
I bought a very unique car from Shawn. Worth the time, money, and effort to get a LOW mileage, top of the line auto. Thank you Shawn.
Valerie M. - 2004 Honda S2000 51K Miles!!!
I had the most amazing experience buying my son's Honda S2000. I am in Oregon and purchased this car sight unseen. Shawn and Jason were awesome. They gave me a video tour of the vehicle and worked out every detail of the purchase as well as adding in shipping the vehicle to Oregon. It was a seamless purchase, straightforward and honest to deal with. I highly recommend a car purchase with Auto Paradise of Texas!!
Curtis C. - 2007 Dodge Ram 4X4 1500 77K Miles
Shawn was more than accommodating when it came to purchasing my Dodge pickup and he made the process quick and easy. I’ll definitely be recommending him to family and friends looking for vehicles.
The Landenberger's - 2015 Ford F150
Great experience buying my husband's 2015 F150. Truck was exactly as expected from the listing. Easy process, Shawn was very personable and made the entire process enjoyable. He even got us a lower interest rate that was amazing.
Carrie B. - 2003 Jeep Wrangler 69K Miles
Shawn is the real deal! We honestly thought that the Jeep and his website were too good to be true. We are now believers! Great jeep and amazing experience. Shawn went above and beyond! He even recommended a bank that had a lower interest rate...yep...way beyond! I highly recommend him anyone needing a car! So easy. ..so fun..and truly honest. Thank you Shawn!
Dennis B. - 2006 Ford Ford F150 Harley Davidson
Thanks, Shawn, for the best car buying experience I have ever had. You were great and I absolutely Love my Ford F150 Harley Davidson Edition. I will be back to buy another car and I know I'll get great service because that's what you are about!
The Wrights - 2003 GMC Sierra 4X4 Diesel 1 Owner with 77K Miles
Dealing with Shawn was fast and easy. It took longer to unload my old truck then it took to buy the new to me truck. Thanks for a fun experience. I would highly recommend Auto Paradise to others in the future.
The Griffen's - 2004 GMC Envoy XUV 1 Owner 69K Miles
OK first thanks to ALL the dealers who tried to take advantage of my vehicle purchasing experience! We've purchased over 20 vehicles and NEVER have we saw a vehicle online with the ability to text the dealer about vehicle, answer a few questions, fill out credit app online, get text from dealer of BEST vendor to finance vehicle. Then drive to the dealer after approval.. test drive vehicle, sign few documents drive vehicle home. Unbelievable RIGHT?? Got picture's to prove it and to cover the thousand words I am limited to. Shawn is the real deal. Call him, text him, email him. Just get there and prepare to be AWE inspired. Your turn who's got NEXT.
Shawn S - 2014 Toyota Corolla
Super simple, transparent car buying experience. Loved the fact the the Carfax and history were available upfront. Overall a GREAT experience!!!
George "Wayne" H. - 2006 Dodge Ram Quad Cab 1 Owner 66K Miles
Shawn is as good to deal with as anyone you’ll come across. Had a problem with the truck and he and his mechanic Allen made it right. Would recommend these guys to everyone needing a sound vehicle.
Michael and Vanda E - 2008 Mercedes Benz GL550 39K Miles
Wow! What an awesome buying experience and incredible vehicle! No pressure sale and Shawn was like visiting with a longtime friend. My parents are already talking about going to Auto Paradise of Texas when they are ready to purchase their next vehicle. THANK YOU for making this THE perfect car buying experience. What a hassle free way to purchase a vehicle! We drove 3.5 hours (one way) to pick up our low mileage car. No pressure and the machine was even nicer in person than the online pics indicated. We really enjoyed this car buying experience, said no one ever! Until they’ve shopped at Auto Paradise of Texas!
Tuesday J. - 2012 Dodge Durango 50K Miles
Absolutely the best car buying experience yet.. customer service was amazing, felt like we've known each other forever. I drove 2.5 hours to pick up my new car, so worth it!! I would highly recommend for your next car purchase!!! Thanks again guys!!
Jim B. - 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan
Best Auto buying Experience ever. As a Caravan owner for over 30 years, buying one was a no Brainer. After my initial contact I set up an Appt. Walking up to the Grand Caravan the outside was 99% mint condition. The interior was the same or maybe 100%. This was a 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan with 58,000 miles on it. The whole Auto Paradise crew knows how to treat Customers. We just had out first lengthy trip in the Van and it was a delight. At almost 70, this should be our last purchase, but I will 100% steer anyone to A/P Arlington.
Acie G - 2004 Pontiac Aztek
I purchased a great car for my 17yr old daughter from Auto Paradise of Texas. The car was without any major defects, low mileage and very well maintained service history. Auto Paradise of Texas provided excellent customer service. I would truly recommend doing business with this company.
Lecile D. - 2006 Hummer H3 Luxury with 65K Miles
Awesome find on my Hummer H3. Thank you Auto Paradise of Texas for making my dream vehicle come true for me! Great help, Easy buy, and sooo dang fast out the door. We were done in about 45 mins. Thank you brother for making it sooo easy!
Nigel H. - 2011 Nissan Titan Crew Cab
They don't have that sneaky "used car salesman" vibe, Jason and Shawn and both approachable, down to earth, easy to talk to guys. Their shop is clean and kept, don't expect Martha Stewart type kept but it's not messy and junkie. The 2011 Nissan Titan Truck that I bought was clean and was the cheapest price for the millage and year in the area. The experience was easy and I did my home work so knew I could not find better for the price range, I came looked and the truck and I was satisfied with it did the paper work and was out the door within 2hrs (Had to get a loan). How much easier does it get ?
Ken S. - 2010 Chevy Corvette
I came in July 8th and purchased a 2010 corvette. The experience was awesome. My dealer checked on me and made sure I had a safe trip. He guided me in to the dealership so I wouldn't get lost being I was from Mississippi. When I got there all the paper work was ready. All I had to do was test drive and sign my name. I was in and out in an hour. He also referred me to a wonderful hotel and restaurants for me to dine at. If you're looking for a great vehicle and a exciting experience please check out Auto Paradise of Texas.
The Jenkins - 2004 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer
We had a great experience buying a car from Auto Paradise. Shawn and Jason answered our questions and worked with us on pricing for the vehicle we purchased. I was impressed with the caliber of cars (low mileage/one-two owners) they offer. Thank you, Shawn and Jason.
Nick K. - 2004 Jaguar X-Type 32K Miles
This is the best dealership in Texas!! Great customer service , awesome selection of cars with 1 owner and low mileage , COME HERE TO BUY YOUR NEXT CAR !
Harris W. - 2006 Dodge Dakota Crew Cab Laramie 4X4 66K
These guys are awesome!!! I have bought many vehicles in my life and I've never experienced such a no pressure, friendly environment at a dealer. I love my new truck! They will also do everything they can, including going out of their way, to help you get the best financing and ensure you are getting the best deal. They will even tell you if you have found a better deal elsewhere. If you're in the market for a vehicle I suggest you check Auto Paradise of Texas out.
Beth S. - 2011 Honda Odyssey EX-L
THIS. IS. HOW. TO. BUY. A. CAR. People. I never left my house. Called Jason/Shawn, had an independent inspection done, wired the $, they emailed me documents and the car was delivered to my house less than 36 hours after the initial contact. Folks, I have an "in" with a big car dealership and I still would choose to do business with Auto Paradise every time. Clear communication. Clean car. Attention to detail and great service. No pressure, no need to haggle because their price is fair - one where both the buyer and seller feel like no one got taken for a ride (ha!). And? They just made it EASY. I really can't say enough good things about my low mileage Honda and the guys who got it to me so dang fast.
Jeannie O. - 2005 BMW CI Convertible 66K Miles
The service was wonderful. Love my car. Thank You!
Cody K. - 2012 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab 4X4 38K Miles 1 Owner
They took great care of me. All paperwork and everything was done when I arrived. Signed a few papers and was in and out in under 30 minutes!
Bruce M. - 2005 BMW 525i 66K Miles 1 Owner
Great guys. They have a very unique inventory of low millage one owner cars. Sold me a 05 525 BMW 65K miles , was exactly as described. The educated consumer will love this place.
Ben P. - 2006 Toyota Tundra 4X4
I just bought a 2006 Tundra. Jason and Shawn both know what they are doing and are very helpful during the process. Quick response to questions and setting up the appointment to come look at the vehicle. The paperwork and even the trade in was super easy and quick! They have very nice low mileage used vehicles. Very impressed! Thank you
Tammy G. - 1999 Ford Ranger 4dr Ext Cab. 66K Miles
Thanks for the good experience buying our ranger today. Thank your wife for directions to hwy 75, made it home safe and sound to Oklaholma
Traden C. - 2007 BMW 328i Coupe 61K Miles
I recently purchased a 2007 BMW 328i Coupe from Auto Paradise of Texas and could not be any happier with my experience. First off, the communication that Jason kept with me during the process was excellent. Second, the car was beautiful and at the price they sold it too me for I kind of felt like I stole it. Both Jason and Shawn did a fantastic job in making the car-buying experience not only seamless, but painless as well. I was in and out of there with a great car and an amazing experience. I highly recommend this dealer to anyone looking for a vehicle.
Kelly S. - 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4X4 5.7 58K Miles
Had a great experience and love my new Jeep Grand Cherokee!
Doug M. - 2006 Ford F150
Great experience. Bought really nice Ford F150 right after Hurricane Harvey. They didn't jack up prices even though they knew many, many Houston vehicles had just been destroyed and Houstonians were coming to DFW to buy vehicles that had not been flooded.
Melissa G. - 1999 Mercedes Benz ML430 1 Owner 42K Miles
Everything from start to finish was excellent customer service. I will buy from, Auto Paradise of Texas again. I love my Mercedes Benz ML430.
The Causey's - 2009 Ford F150 Crew Cab. 77K Miles
My husband and I were looking for a truck for our teenage son and found Auto Paradise through the USAA car buying process. When we called, we spoke directly to the owner, Shawn. He was extremely easy to work with! Very friendly, easy going, and absolutely no high pressure sales. We were impressed with Shawn's product knowledge, easy going sales process, and ethics. His online description and photos of the truck we were interested in were spot on (unlike other places that lure you in only to be disappointed). We appreciated how easy he made the whole process and, to top it off, he's just a super nice guy! It was a great experience and we would definitely do business with him again.
Krista O. - 2007 Honda Odyssey Touring 87K Miles
I cannot thank Shawn enough for his help with buying my 2007 Honda Odyssey Touring with 87K Miles. He took the time to talk to me about what I needed and explained all my options that came with the van. He never pressured me to buy and ONLY wanted to make sure that I made an informed decision whether I bougvehht from him or not. When I am done being a softball mom and am ready to buy another vehicle for myself, I will 100% go back to Auto Paradise of Texas. Thank you. Thank You Thank You
The Benjamins - 2009 Honda Odyssey EX-L 55K Miles
We found Shawn and Auto Paradise through the USAA car buying service and within 2 hours we were driving home in our Honda Odyssey. The process was so relaxed and family friendly. Initially, we were in contact with Shawn through email and calls and the response time and personality was off the charts. For me, it’s always nice to get a good feeling before heading out to look at a vehicle. My husband and I took our 9 month old, who was initially fussy as babies are, and Shawn was so gracious and patient with us. He took the time to walk us step by step through all the car features and answered all our questions without hesitation. We loaded up the baby’s car seat and took the van for a test drive. It’s very apparent that Shawn takes his business seriously to ensure quality in the vehicles he sells. I would recommend Auto Paradise to families and anyone looking to actually enjoy their car buying experience. We can’t wait to take our first family road trip in our Honda Odyssey! Thank you so much Auto Paradise!
John F. - 2003 BMW Z4
I recently purchased a 2003 BMW Z4 with 56K miles from Shawn and I have been 100% happy with my buying experience every step of the way. Shawn consistently answered all calls and texts and was on time and prepared every step of the way from test drive to sale. Price was very fair (especially considering the 30 day bumper to bumper warranty). Car was exactly as advertised and I constantly get compliments on how the car looks brand new and people are blown away when I tell them it is 14 years old. Shawn also stood by his warranty when there was a problem with the radiator/hoses. Shawn took care of everything quickly and professionally (exactly as he said he would). Working with Shawn and Auto Paradise of Texas was a true pleasure and I won't hesitate to buy from Shawn again. I highly recommend anyone who is looking for a low mileage luxury car to check out Auto Paradise of Texas.
Jason P. - 2008 Scion TC 55K Miles
Best car buying experience I've ever had!! I've been in the car business since college, bought several vehicles, so that's saying a lot coming from me since I am extremely critical and very biased. I myself practice and preach integrity, great customer service and transparency in every transaction, start to finish!
Shawn, the owner, was the epitome of this model. First, he accommodated an appointment based on my schedule(I have busy hours in the car business). He didn't try to "sell" the car through the phone as most traditionally would and try to get you there in person. Surprisingly, he didn't even test drive the car with me in person when I did arrive which is also unorthodox. He let me take a much extended drive (I was gone for over half an hour to test and look at everything) as he patiently waited way past normal business hours for my completion. To top it off, we kicked the can for another few hours after that, not leaving 'till almost midnight!
Shawn specializes in low-mileage, 1-owner vehicles that are very clean inside and out. He and his team go through them all with a fine tooth comb and rigorous mechanical inspection, giving you great confidence. I myself bought an almost 10 year old Scion TC with only 55k! Since it was a used car, naturally there was some very minor "wear-and-tear." (scratches, chips, smudges, etc). Completely understandable and every new buyer needs to shut the heck up and expect that since it's not a new car! Since I know the game better than your average Joe, I noticed a small handful of very small concerns, alignment slightly off, squeaky door (he already mentioned that prior), a small piece of upholstery missing, ETC. Their was also a break bulb issue that he spotted that I didn't even originally notice, who does that?! Without even an ounce of hesitation or bat of an eye, he emphatically and willingly offered to fix everything free of charge. Not only was that delivered, he even went above and beyond and hooked me up on a couple other things that I don't want to mention so everyone reading this review doesn't expect that as well ;] PS, you have a "bumper-to-bumper" warranty for the first 30 days in case anything unexpected occurs, do you need any other confidence?! I don't think so.
Not to mention, I never had to haggle or negotiate a better price. This was because he was the cheapest price on that specific model and mileage in a 500 mile radius, and he always is! I knew this and didn't even think of asking for a discount for a second. Though, I've been doing that as a consumer and as a professional (Sales/Finance Manager at a dealership) for years now! Also, he encourages you to bring your own bank or CU to the table, or will help you find one if you need help. He doesn't pull your credit and try to make money on the "back-end" stuff like most do!
I wholeheartedly feel and believe God lead me here to Bless me with this car and meet an amazing child of His. Not only did I leave with an amazing vehicle, but I left with an amazing vehicle of hope. The way he serves his clients and runs his business has inspired me to want to do the exact same for others and start my own journey. I pray and hope God will give me the same opportunity and prosperity as He has given Shawn at Auto Paradise (hence the name)! I'm passionate about customer service and doing what's right, as is Shawn as witnessed
If you're looking for your life to be changed and a new perspective on buying a car, I HIGHLY RECCOMEND going here, you won't be disappointed. Don't take my word for it, go see for yourself!!!!
Que N. - 2005 Honda Odyssey EX-L 90K Miles
The best place to buy a used car. I'm from Oklahoma City and I drove to Texas to test drive a Honda Odyssey and it was in perfect condition and the price was better than any dealership in okc with low miles, one owner car and well taken care of. It was worth the drive!!! I would go there again to buy my used cars! The owner/Shawn was great and friendly. He got us all taken care of. The best part about this place is you don't have to haggle about prices because it's all up front!!
Michael T. - 2004 Ford Ranger
Shawn, was extremely helpful in assisting me into getting into a new Ford Ranger, he offered to do a lot things that most businesses would not do. I was coming about 200 miles out from where he is located. This in turn made me weary about purchasing a vehicle so far away. One phone call and Mr. Shawn had put me at ease, especially with what he said equaled the car fax he had shown me when I got there. Great prices, excellent customer service.
Laura K. - 2008 Volvo S40
We closed the deal with a handshake and a hug. You won't find a nicer guy than Shawn to buy a car from. I'm loving my Volvo S40 and I am very happy with the service I received. Shawn answered all our questions and handled any concerns quickly and professionally. I recommend Auto Paradise without reservation.
Danny F. - 2004 Ford Explorer 4WD 81K Miles
Shawn and Auto Paradise of Texas is great. We have bought 2 cars from them over the years and both still running great, I would highly recommend them for your car needs and for your mechanical needs

Larry - 1996 GMC Sonoma
Kevin S. - 2005 Volvo S60 55K Miles
I bought a 2005 Volvo S60 with about 55,600 miles on it from Auto Paradise of Texas. They specialize in older vehicles with low miles. I have driven the vehicle for just over a week and it runs great. When I bought the car, the blinker switch was going bad, and Shaun ordered the part and replaced it in under a week. Overall this has been a very good experience.
Pamela W. - 2003 Jeep Wrangler 95K Miles
We bought a Jeep from Shawn. He met us as promised, showed us many features of the vehicle, and even showed us how to take off the soft-top. The vehicle was low mileage and in great shape for the age. As we were taking some time to consider buying the Jeep, Shawn kept us informed as other potential buyers were looking it. He was extremely helpful and seemed knowledgeable. Overall our experience was very positive.
Jeff K. - 2012 Honda Odyssey 37K Miles
D. Dejong - 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan 35K Miles
Thank you for making the purchase of our 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan with 35K miles go smoothly. Our family purchased the van over a month ago, and it has turned out to be a great purchase. Thanks again for your friendly and professional service as I traveled a long distance to find a vehicle with low mileage and great condition. (Flew in from Colorado). I will look again with Auto Paradise of Texas in the future when it comes time to purchase another vehicle.
Beau C. - 1995 Chevy Blazer 62K Miles
I just purchased a 1995 Chevrolet Blazer with super low miles from Auto Paradise of Texas. I wanted to share my experiences and impressions of all my searches for a Vehicle that met all of my personal standards and was within my price range. I have more than 50 years of experience working in the Automotive Industry that included New Car Dealers, Used Car Dealers, Service and Collision Repair Shops. I spent more than 6 weeks on the Internet and making a lot of trips looking for a vehicle that met my Standards within a 150 mile radius from my home . I found a Vehicle on the Internet that met all of my requirements. I called the Dealer for details. The next day I was picked-up and “Test Drove” the Vehicle back to the Dealer located in Arlington,Texas. (Auto Paradise ofTexas). The Chevrolet Blazer was exactly as advertised – I made the Down Payment, then Signed the Paper Work and Drove it Home. All done in an less than 2 Hr’s. I could not be more satisfied with my purchase!!!
The Scott’s (Especially Harrison) - 2001 Infinity QX4 75K Miles
We want to thank you again for helping us find the perfect car for our son Harrison (2001 Infinity QX4 with 75K Miles). It was a surprise as you remember and boy did we get him good! As you can see in the picture he loves it. The vehicle is an absolute gem and we couldn’t be happier with the quality and service you provided. I can’t wait to buy my next car from you. Thanks again and wishing you continued success.
Katie - 2002 Volkswagen Beetle 77K Miles
Katie can’t love her bug anymore than she does! What a great experience you gave us, from the moment we contacted you about looking at a few cars to the moment we drove away in a 2002 Volkswagen bug! The selection of CLEAN, used cars was impressive, the professionalism was even more impressive. We have many friends who will be looking for cars for their kids in the future, we’ll definitely recommend Auto Paradise of Texas. Thank you!
Todd and Jennifer M. (Lea’s First Car) - 2000 Toyota Celica GT-S 47K Miles
Just a short note to tell you how wonderful our experience was in buying our daughter’s first car. (2000 Toyota Celica GT-S with 47K Miles) With our oldest on the brink of driving, we started the search for that perfect teenager car. After visiting numerous web advertisements, dealerships, and warehouse-type “dealers”, we came across a special write up for a very special car. We could tell that you took great care of the car in preparing it for your clients. With just one phone call, we knew you understood the value of knowing our teen would be driving a reliable yet sporty car. We had to go that same day to see this special car, and after visiting you we found the perfect car for our daughter and what a wonderful buying experience we had! In just minutes of talking with you it was like we were talking with long-time friends. Your wife was just as wonderful in taking care of our financials. No buyers remorse here and only good things to say!!! Our daughter has a great running and great looking car that she is very proud to call hers. We will let all of our fellow teenager parents know about you and your wonderful service and attention to detail. Also, we plan to bring the car to you for all of its maintenance needs. We are confident you will take great care of the car as you know it is carrying our precious cargo. Thank you very much,
Carlos C. - 1998 Mercedes E320 42K Miles
I wanted to thank you and your team for having made my car purchase an outstanding one (1998 Mercedes E320 with 42K Miles). Your honesty, deep knowledge about the car history, easy to purchase process, free delivery of the car to my moms house, integrity in the entire transaction, etc…(as you can see I can go on and on about the top notch service I got)… Made my purchase experience an outstanding one….to top it all off you honored your taking care of me if the vehicle experienced any malfunction.

The confidence I have in you and your team has led me to bring my families needs to your shop! Thank you again for everything.
Rachel A. - 2000 Chevy Cavalier 50K Miles
Shawn and Jenn, You guys were wonderful! I will recommend Auto Paradise of Texas to anyone looking to buy a used car. I recently got a 2000 Chevy Cavalier from you with 50K miles, and I haven’t had a single complaint. It gets great gas mileage and runs really well. Your knowledge and customer service made this a really great experience. Thank you so much!
Corra Anne F. - 2001 Chevy Impala 18K Miles
We purchased a 2001 Chevy Impala with 18K Miles on it. Let me first state that we are in no way technologically advanced, so we are hand writing this letter (Testimonial). My Husband and I are both in our 70’s and we have NEVER experienced the quality of service we have received from Shawn, his wife and Auto Paradise of Texas. Every time we turn around they are doing something that is above and beyond what we ever expected from a dealer. From the quality of the car, to the license plates being put on our vehicle. As you can imagine, a couple of our age has seen a lot of things, but the service the two of you have provided us is beyond expectations. We love our car and thank you so much for making it so easy for us.
Richard and Princess - 2000 Ford Explorer Limited 57K Miles
Shawn & Jenn, We hit the ground running with the 2000 Ford Explorer Limited with 57K Miles. It has been a blessing because Princess’ old car has had air conditioner problems and has been out of service since we got the Explorer. It has served us well. We thank you for your excellent care and attention that you gave to us. The purchase was a pleasant experience. Richard & Princess
Shirley G. - 1996 Acura Integra

Dan P. - 2000 Audi A-6 83K Miles
This is my second buy from you in the last two years and I am so glad I answered your ad two years ago on the Q45 Infinity. It made me come back this time for an Audi A-6. Without a doubt, you have the cleanest, lowest mileage group of pre-owned drivers I have seen in the Metroplex and I will continue to use your company for years to come. I mention your website and send people there when I can and will continue to do so. Your cars are highly selected, have good mileage on them and have been serviced and cleaned in a professional manner. Please use me as a positive recommendation to any future client of yours, for I believe they would not go wrong in using your company at any time. Thanks for the opportunity of being able to find a car at Auto Paradise of Texas and my personal best wishes to you and yours. Best regards, Dan P.
Deborah M - . . .
We were looking for a van for our daughter, and these guys were GREAT. The van didn’t work out for our daughter (she has a bad back and other health problems that are tricky), but it was a fantastic vehicle. We will be checking with Auto Paradise the next time we’re car shopping!!!
The McCall’s - 1999 BMW 328i 78K Miles
We would like to take this opportunity to express our thanks to Shawn and Jenn in the purchase of the BMW we purchased for our son. We had been looking for awhile for cars for our 16 year old son. We could tell before we met Shawn and Jenn that they were going to HONEST and TRUSTWORTHY to work with and that was just in the telephone conversation. The car was everything that was represented and the flaws we found once our mechanic looked at were addressed immediately with no hesitation. They are honest people selling honest cars. We cannot recommend them enough! You will not be disappointed in your experience in purchasing a car. Don’t forget Shawn and Jenn,Dawson will be there in 5 more years to purchase his first car.

You, your wife and staff are professional and courteous…I gladly will refer everyone in the market for a car to Auto Paradise of Texas. Thank you, Beverly F.
Irena T. - 2000 Saab Convertible 30K
I have bought, sold, traded many cars in the past. And buying my latest car from Shawn is the best experience yet. He is very professional, respectful, knowledgeable and helpful. He gave me the best deal on my trade-off, and 30 min later I drove off in my new car which I enjoy every day and in my mind thank Shawn every day. Also, Shawn took care of every minor issue (fix, touch-up and etc.) and always treated me with respect and courtesy. His wife, Jennifer, is also very nice and pleasant and helpful lady, which make them the perfect team. I highly recommend everyone who is looking for a used car, to go to Shawn. All his cars are in excellent condition, and reliable. I am glad that I had an opportunity to do business with him, and will definitely come back if I need another car. Thank you, Shawn and Jennifer for an unforgettable and pleasant experience.
The Plitt’s - 2002 Honda Civic

Every detail was addressed and we took delivery of an outstanding vehicle. Couldn’t be more pleased with how everything worked out. Thank you!!”

Highly recommend buying from Auto Paradise and would definitely buy with Shawn again.”
The Bodenchuk’s - 2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara 61K Miles
“We purchased a 2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara from Tucson AZ. We saw the ad on AutoTrader and purchased the vehicle SIGHT UNSEEN. Shawn arranged shipping and when we received the car it was AMAZING!!! It was AS ADVERTISED and we could not be more happy with our transaction! For us it was a little scary since we had not seen the vehicle, but when we received it, it by far met our expectations. Thank you Shawn and Auto Paradise of Texas”
Shaheen R. - 2005 Chevy Aveo 69K Miles
“I was looking for a reliable car for a reasonable price and found Shawns ad for a 2005 Chevy Aveo on craigslist. The thing I immediately liked was that he had a video showing the car inside and out. It saved me lots of time to know before I left the house that I was interested in the car. Shawn gave me lots of information on the car as to what work had recently been done. It was a great car buying experience and I would buy from him in the future. I would greatly urge others to buy from Shawn and auto paradise as well!”
Mark W. - 1994 Honda Del Sol 84K Miles
“I am thoroughly enjoying my new ride. Car was as advertised!!! I never thought buying a used vehicle sight unseen would be so EASY!!! I was reluctant and a little worried, but it was as advertised!!! If I EVER need another vehicle, I will buy from Auto Paradise of Texas again!”
Kaitlin P. - 2008 Kia Sportage 67K Miles
I thoroughly enjoyed my car buying experience with Auto Paradise! I purchased a 2008 Kia Sportage. Shawn allowed me to evaluate the car and take it to a mechanic of my choosing. I felt he sincerely cared about me as a customer. There was no pressure to purchase, which was refreshing! I have had the car for several months and have not had any problems with the car. If the need for another car arises in the future I certainly will return to Auto Paradise and I would definitely recommend this dealership to others. Thank you Shawn!

I wanted to let you know that we did have a very good experience with our purchase of the Z4. The car has been a joy to drive and my wife has really enjoyed it, as it was her birthday present. The experience through the transaction was very smooth and you took care of everything you said you would. On a personal level, getting to know the two of you through the process was very nice and helped us appreciate how much you care that your customers have a good experience. I wish you success with the coming year in your lives and your business.
Sasha and Christopher A. - 2002 Jeep Liberty 85K

It was EVERYTHING we had hoped for!!! Excellent pre-owned cars in great condition and PERFECT CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! We do not expect to buy another “NEW” car if these folks continue to do their work of pre-selecting and servicing the cars they sell the way they do!!!! Thanks!!!!

“Thank you Shawn and Jennifer for the wonderful services you provide to us parents of teenagers. You carry a great selection of vehicles at an affordable price range and offer up well serviced vehicles that us parents feel comfortable putting our young drivers on the road in. You were very helpful with working with me to be able to purchase the car I felt was perfect for my daughter. She loved it and was very surprised. Your help with the delivery really eliminated a major head ache. I am also grateful as a single mom with no mechanical inclinations, which you stand behind your buyers before and after the sale. I wish you continued success in your business and will refer others to you whenever possible.
Jarrod G - 2006 Land Rover Range Rover 59K Miles
I just wanted to let you know how pleased I have been with the vehicles I have purchased from you. Initially, I bought a vehicle for myself and was very pleased. I have handed that vehicle down to the teen driver in the family. I let Shawn know what type of vehicle I was looking for and he found it for me. Another pristine and well priced vehicle was purchased from them. All of the staff have been pleasant and very accommodating. The wife will be needing a vehicle in the near future and we will be definitely be coming back to Shawn. Top notch vehicles and service! Auto Paradise of Texas is the best!!! Thanks!
Debra and Art G. - 2001 Lexus RX300 62K Miles

The Reynold’s - 2004 Ford Escape 47K Miles
“After endless hours of looking, we are so glad we found Auto Paradise of Texas. Shawn and his wife were so helpful and made us feel so comfortable. At no point did we feel like we were at a ‘typical’ car dealership! We didn’t feel like we were going to be able to find a car we would be happy with to replace our car that was totaled, but we LOVE our 2004 Ford Escape! Big thanks to you both for all of your help!”
Edna C. - 2002 Toyota Highlander 96K Miles
I am pleased I can count on a car that starts when you want it to start, has no leaks, the tires are good, the brakes are working, etc. My 2002 Highlander is working as promised.

Rick and Michele A - 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee 26K Miles
We bought a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 26K Miles from Shawn and Jennifer at Auto Paradise of Texas. They made it the best car buying experience we’ve EVER had. We spent months searching for just the right low-mileage vehicle and we found it on their web site. We watched the video, called Shawn, made an appointment and the next day we were in our new ride. Where else can you get personalized service, a video of the car, an auto history report and a warranty for an older model pre-owned car? Thank you Auto Paradise of Texas.
Diane and Warren G. - 1997 Honda Del Sol
Shawn and Jenn, Thank you for assisting us with the purchase of our 1997 Honda Del Sol. You went above and beyond with our deal (Helping us to arrange shipping). Thank you again for you help in making this happen. Much Thanks, Diane and Warren G.
Spencer R. - 2008 Honda Accord 39K Miles
“All I can say is wow!!! What an amazing business concept Shawn has. The best service I have ever experienced buying a car. I looked at the car, drove the car and signed paperwork in under 30 minutes. Absolutely no pressure to buy, he let the vehicle speak for itself and the best part was ALL of the vehicles for sale were in PRESTINE condition. I strongly recommend Auto Paradise of Texas to anyone looking for a vehicle. They provide all records, a vehicle history report and a warranty on every vehicle they sell!!!”
Angie G. - 2004 Chevy Malibu Maxx 52K Miles
“If you want to buy a car from a reputable person, Shawn is the one. We got to look at the vehicle and test drive it with no hassling from him. It is so much easier buying a car from him than one of the large dealers. When we were ready the paperwork from quick and painless. The vehicle is in great shape. Got to take it to our mechanic to have it double checked and he couldn’t find a single thing wrong. GO SHAWN AND GO AUTO PARADISE!!!!!”
Ernie and Debra G. - 2008 Dodge Ram 2500 49K Miles 6.7 Diesel
We recently purchased a 2008 Ram Pickup through Auto Paradise of Texas and Shawn Hoover. First let us say that this was a “leap of faith” to find a pickup on the internet and then purchase it sight unseen. We cannot say enough positive about our communication and interaction with Shawn Hoover. Shawn was super easy to work with, very willing to give us the assurances we needed to feel comfortable moving forward with the purchase. He provided banking information so we could deposit the funds directly in his account avoiding the wiring fees. He willingly offered to pick us up and shuttle us from the airport the day we took delivery. He was a great tour guide on the way from the airport to his business. The pickup was everything he said it was and more. He is a man that stands behind his word. He even checked in with us to make sure we got home to Tampa, Florida with no problem. We would not hesitate to purchase another vehicle through Auto Paradise of Texas. Thank you Shawn for the great service.
Terri D. - 2000 Lexus ES 300 81K Miles
I purchased a car for my son from you almost 2 years ago. A 2000 Lexus ES 300 with 81K Miles. The car was in great condition and he has been driving it with no problems since. My husband and I relocated to Illinois however I am currently looking for a car for my daughter. She has returned home to the Dallas area from spending last year serving as a missionary around the world. She is looking for a good used car to purchase by the end of January. My previous purchase experience with you was exceptional and I look forward to working with you again.
Mike S - 2001 Mercedes E320 with 41K Miles
I want to send this note in that it may help your internet audience who may have concerns about online car purchases sight unseen. First let me say that your website was well laid out very easy to navigate. I started my search for a Mercedes E 320 and found there to be many of them available all over the country. Some how my search was directed to True Car and that lead me to your website. I am satisfied that I found the best car available that fit my budget. Working with you has been a pleasure and the car has exceeded my expectations. To any one that is considering an online purchase. Do not hesitate if Shawn is involved. He was straight up from start to finish. Thank you Shawn and I now that you will continue building a great reputation
The Lewis’ - 2003 Toyota Corolla 90K Miles
“We were so tired of shopping for a car we had nearly given up. We have never had such an awesome experience in buying a car as we did with Shawn! We were so skeptical in going and looking at another car from a dealer, but we are so thankful we did! We never felt pressured or over whelmed at any point. After all the cars we had looked at, we were amazed at how clean and well kept the car was! Shawn was very knowledgeable and made the transaction so easy! We will definitely be recommending Auto Paradise of Texas to all of our friends and family and will be going through Shawn for any of our future automotive needs!”
CJ Bartlett - 2002 Ford Windstar 48K Miles
My husband and I found this van on the Auto Paradise website. We never test drove it or even seen it in person before purchasing it. (Never have done this before). With us living far away in Oklahoma Shawn helped us with options we had and helped have this vehicle shipped to us in our own town. I was terrified!! But everything Shawn told us over the phone as well as all the info and pictures on the website have been true! Honestly my van was even better looking then what we seen in the pictures. If you are even thinking about buying a vehicle from Shawn just do it! You won’t be sorry you did!! My husband and I have 3 girls that will one day be future drivers and Shawn, you will definitely be hearing from us again!! Thank You for the business and the greatest vehicle ever!!!!
Beth R. - 2006 Chevy Colorado
I purchased a Chevrolet Colorado, a few months back and have to say that Auto Paradise of Texas goes above and beyond to help you and keep you happy. They are always there for you, if you need them. I recently locked my keys in the truck, and Shawn sent his employee to my home to unlock the truck and had no problem doing it for me AT NO CHARGE. Thank you so much Shawn and Jennifer!!! I would definitely buy from here, in the future and would recommend them to anyone. Beth R.
Barbara M. - 2001 Buick Lesabre 66K Miles
Dear Shawn and Jennifer, I just wanted to thank you in helping me decide on, and procure a good low-mileage like-new used car. You had so many very nice vehicles to choose from. All of them were very low-mileage, and looked like “new mint condition” vehicles, that it was hard for me to decide. My purchase of a 2001 Buick LeSabre with 66K miles seemed to be the right fit for me. I have, so far, been very pleased and happy with my purchase. I have recommended you folks to several of my friends, and will recommend you anyone that I know of that needs a “like new, low-mileage, good used vehicle” … I even want you folks to do the “service maintenance” regularly on mine to make sure it is kept in tip-top condition as much as possible, because I plan to drive it for a very long time. Sincerely, Barbara M.
Gary H. - 2006 Ford F150 Lariat 73K Miles
I recently bought a 2006 Ford F-150 Lariat pickup from Auto Paradise of Texas and had a very positive experience. The day prior, I was at a large dealer in the DFW area and had the exact opposite experience. At Auto Paradise of Texas there was no pressure at all and they had the truck out waiting for me to arrive and test drive. We signed the papers and they delivered the truck to my residence. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a good, quality used automobile. Thanks for making this a simple and pleasurable experience!
Derek V. - 2000 Lexus LX470 62K Miles
I just wanted to thank Shawn, Jennifer and the ENTIRE staff at Auto Paradise of Texas. Thank you for making my car buying experience over the weekend the most memorable one to date when buying a vehicle. It started off with seeing what I wanted from your website (A 2000 Lexus LX470, 1 Owner with 62K miles), then I was informed that you guys could pick up a client at the airport. Thank you for the outstanding customer experience given by you and your staff. I have purchased many cars before, but by far, you guys go above and beyond with making sure the buyer is satisfied with their purchase. Thanks again and I’m your customer for life. I’ll not purchase another use car from anyone but Auto Paradise of Texas.
Reggie J. - 2007 Volvo C70
We were shopping nearby when our vehicle broke down. We have a Volvo C70 Convertible. The serpentine Belt and tensioner broke on the vehicle The nice folks at Auto Paradise of Texas went above and beyond to help us. They looked at our car and charged us nothing. They even arranged a tow for us so we could bring it to the Volvo dealership. We did not buy a car, nor did we get our car serviced there, but our experience was wonderful.
Russell S. - 2003 Toyota Rav-4 99K Miles
Shawn & Jennifer, Looking for a car for my son in college had become an ordeal until I contacted you about the 2003 Toyota RAV-4 you had for sale. When I saw the car, it was exactly what your ad and video had described. Your records of previous ownership, service and registrations were complete and precise. Even the make ready work done by your shop was well documented. Your no haggle pricing was very fair. Jennifer made filling out the paperwork a breeze. She even showed me how to buy an extra remote on line and gave me the instructions on how to program it. After I bought the car, and you were showing me how to change the tire, you noticed that the spare tire cover was defective. You had it sent out and repaired at no additional cost to me. I can’t tell you both how much I appreciated doing business with you. Your honesty and integrity are unmatched in this business. I would recommend you to anyone I know who is seeking a reliable car. It was so nice to drive away in the car and not have to worry about what else I had to do to the car to get it ready for my son. I have never had a more enjoyable car buying experience.
Rafael E. - 2006 Nissan Quest 55K Miles

Shawn and Jennifer made this purchase a joy, no games, just complete honesty and ease of paper work. Went in Monday evening looked at the Saturn Vue (with 40K Miles), agreed to a total price, put deposit down and left within 20 minutes after arriving. This vehicle was RV ready, but was missing the front tow bar. Shawn went the extra mile to help us with a tow bar for the Saturn and went above what he needed to do. If you are looking for a clean car, dealing with an honest couple go see Shawn and Jennifer!
The Elliott’s - 2001 Audi TT Roadster 16K Miles
We were so impressed with the deal that we got with our 2001 Audi TT Roadster that we have returned and bought another vehicle from Auto Paradise of Texas – a 2003 Mercury Grand Marquise with 16K Miles. Both vehicles have low mileage and run like a charm. We enjoyed doing business with Auto Paradise and Shawn. We have even referred our Pastor to Auto Paradise of Texas for his next car purchase.
Jeff H. - 2001 BMW 740iL 39K Miles
In February, 2013 I bought an immaculate, 2001 BMW 740iL with 39K Miles from Auto Paradise of Texas. The car is simply amazing. This dealership obviously has very high standards for the cars they buy/sell. The pre-owned vehicles in their inventory are exceptional. Shawn installed a new battery in my car before I picked it up. A week later, a power window failed, and Shawn fixed it immediately at no charge. A week after that, my glove box door failed, and Shawn assisted in that repair too. Doing business with Auto Paradise has been a very positive experience.
Phil B. - 2004 Lincoln Town Car 25K Miles
Just a note to tell you how proud we are of the 2004 Lincoln Town Car with 25K miles we purchased from Auto Paradise of Texas. We also appreciated your helping out on the cruise control issue we were having shortly after buying the car. All is well and everything is good with the car. My wife loves it. We truly appreciated the time you took with us in dealing with the purchase of the car. You made it so easy!!!
A.J. Mowrer - 2002 Mazda Tribute ES 75K Miles
I purchased a 2002 Mazda Tribute ES with 75K miles and I have been very pleased with my purchase! I thought it was great that up-front I had pictures, a video and a clean Carfax report of the car before I came to look at it. Shawn and his staff had the car finely detailed and maintained in excellent condition. I previously owned a Mazda Tribute and this car reminded me so much of it! Working with Shawn and Jennifer was so easy and I thought it was great that if anything happened with the car in the next 30 days they would work me! It was peace of mind knowing that if anything were to happen I could come back to them for assistance. Thank you for all your help and I look forward to being a customer for life!
DeAnne M - 2005 Buick LaCrosse 34K Miles
I bought a 1 Owner 2005 Buick LaCrosse with 34,000 miles in excellent condition from Shawn and Jenn at Auto Paradise of Texas. The car was well maintained by the previous owner. I was able to make an appointment at my convenience. Shawn and his wife bent over backwards to make the car purchase a joyful experience. I strongly recommend Auto Paradise of Texas!!!
Paul M. - 2007 Ford Mustang 35K Miles
I bought an 2007 Mustang from Auto Paradise of Texas. I called Shawn on a weekend day and he said we could come right over. The car was in PERFECT condition, inside and out. Not even one scratch, ding or tear. Everything was as advertised. I looked a lot of places and could not find anything that even touched their price, condition or low miles. The price was so low, I didn’t even bother haggling. Shawn let my wife and I take it for a drive right off the bat. No taking a copy of my DL. No him riding in the back seat -Just me and her. We really liked the car. I used USAA financing, which made things really smooth, but so did Shawn. We were probably in and out of there, driving the car home in about an hour. They were very friendly, extremely knowledgeable, honest, and straight-forward. I only wish I had gone there for my son’s car. I will definitely use them again when I want an older car in great shape and at a good price. I would write more, but I want to go drive some place!!!
Peggy and Willard T. - 2008 Chrysler Town and Country 64K Miles
Shawn and Jenn, I hope you had a great Christmas. We want to thank you for the wonderful experience we had in the purchase of our 2008 Chrysler Town and Country. We absolutely love it. It was so nice dealing with you guys. I wish everyone would come to you guys when they are looking for an automobile.
Sasha and Christopher A. - 2004 Volvo XC 90 83K Miles
We came to Auto Paradise of Texas due to the many testimonials and customer reviews you had received. Now we must add our own. We came in to look at 1 vehicle and came out purchasing TWO!!!! It was EVERYTHING we had hoped for!!! Excellent pre-owned cars in great condition and PERFECT CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! We do not expect to buy another “NEW” car if these folks continue to do their work of pre-selecting and servicing the cars they sell the way they do!!!! Thanks!!!!
Fausto and Jennifer C. - 2005 Honda Civic LX 76K Miles
I just want to comment on the most pleasant experience I have ever had in purchasing a vehicle. Shawn was friendly, trusting, and super easy to work with. He worked with us to make the sale on Labor Day. He allowed my wife and I to take the 2005 Honda Civic LX for a test drive alone, something we didn’t ask for. First time that has ever happened to me. It is refreshing to drive the car without the person trying to sell it sitting in the back seat. The vehicle was in Immaculate condition…which is a word Shawn had used on the phone and was the exact word to use to describe it once we saw the vehicle, inspected it and test drove it. The pricing of the vehicle was so good I did not even bother with haggling, the vehicle looked and drove that good. I had just seen vehicles with substantially more miles and a year older going for more at Carmax, Rusty Wallis and Bankston Honda. I also want to thank Shawn for the extra key and remote he threw in to satisfy my 1 request. We bought the car in September and I am writing this testimonial on 11/29/2012, the car continues to run great and still looks immaculate. My daughter is very happy with it. Not only was the shopping experience the best, it was also the shortest. We spent about 45 minutes including the test drive and paperwork. Now when have you ever bought a car at a dealer in 45 minutes? Auto Paradise Texas is where I am looking first next time I want to buy a car! Big thanks and Good Luck in the future!
Chuck H. - 2001 BMW 325I Convertible 66K Miles
I want to thank you for your attention to details and the personal time you took explaining every little thing about the car. (2001 BMW 325I Convertible with 66K Miles) The saying goes, “when it is to good to be true, than it is usually is”, well in this case quite the opposite!!! I felt that my experience with Auto Paradise of Texas was to good to be true! It was all good from the minute I stepped on the lot to look at the car, to the time I came back and drove it off the lot. It was THE car I wanted, in my price range. My experience with Auto Paradise has been EXCELLENT and I would highly recommend others to come check out your cars. I have gotten to drive it a lot over the holidays, and it has been a lot of fun, and it still only has 66K miles on it, but hopefully not for long. Maybe in a couple of years you will consider a trade in for some thing else, but you never know. I am liking this car so much I might keep it until the wheels fall off.
Al H. - 2005 Dodge Dakota 69K Miles
I just want to say that I have seen many dealers advertise their vehicles for sale, but your approach to putting videos with your cars is AWESOME!!! It is not the typical computer generated video, but you actually take the time to show all of the nuances of the vehicle YOURSELF!!! What a breath of fresh air for potential customers to actually see the vehicle before coming out and know EXACTLY what they are buying. So unlike all of the dealers that are advertising their vehicles and getting out there only to find out they are nothing as advertised!!! Thank you so much!!! Al H.
Paul and Teresa P. - 2003 Ford Ranger 53K Miles
Finally, I’m able to sit down and send you this note of appreciation. We have really enjoyed our 2003 Ford Ranger with 53K miles we purchased and can’t thank you guys enough for all the attention you gave to Paul and I. You have truly created an environment which made us feel like we were family. You made the car buying experience a positive endeavor for the first time in our lives. We are so thankful we found you! We look forward to seeing and working with you both in the future. Keep up the good work….. and thanks a million for caring about how people feel about what is generally an unpleasant experience into creating a truly pleasurable experience from the start to the finish. Sincerely, Paul and Teresa P.
Ed H. - 2000 Ford Ranger 33K Miles
My mother-in-law loves her “cute little blue truck” (2000 Ford Ranger with 33K Miles). She’s been showing it off to all her friends. Loves having a vehicle to drive around her farm and to haul the few things she needs to haul without having to put stuff into her car trunk. One of the bays in her garage has been full of junk and she’s been working on cleaning it all up so she can put the truck in the garage. She even had me look into putting a storage shed on her place just so she would have more room in the garage. She was amazed at how clean it looks. Thanks for working with me on the Mazda trade too. My son is loving it at UT so far.
Fernando H. - 2007 Jeep Patriot 44K Miles
Thanks for the good service and smooth transaction with the 2007 Patriot. It was a good experience for us and we’ll recommend you anytime!!!
Isreal C. - 2001 Jaguar S-Type 4.0 49K Miles
I did not buy this time for a different reason but I would visit them again. They have a great inventory of low miles cars. Also, Shawn did a great job, no pressure, and I felt all way long that I could trust these guys.
Axel G. - 2003 BMW X5 71K Miles
This letter is long, long overdue and we would be remiss if time was not set aside to thank you for making our car buying experience exceptional. This was our son’s (Connor) first vehicle purchase and we wanted him to “experience” every aspect of vehicle shopping – boy, were we in for a surprise ourselves!! Suffice it to say, if we had not found Auto Paradise of Texas, the “experience” would have ended and buying a vehicle put on the back burner. We had all but given up and made up our minds this was the last truck we would look at…knowing this would turn out exactly like all the others. Hallelujah!! Auto Paradise of Texas and Shawn and Jennifer Hoover. Amazing!! Everything on your website was TRUE. Everything you told us was TRUE – – the truck was EXACTLY as your website said, the video showed, and you told us. Your professionalism, courtesy, and relate ability are without equal and what sealed the deal – we were sold, but after talking with you both, knew we were advising our son correctly. Thank you for the mission you are on with your dealership and your honesty and integrity. Because of our experience, we tell everyone about you and will come to you for future vehicle purchases! Sincerely, Daryl and Kim S. PS Conner L O V E S his truck! “Axel” is awesome and a wonderful addition to our family!!
Abi B. - 2002 Nissan Xterra 67K Miles
Thank you so much for helping find my new 2002 Xterra. When I walked into your office I could not believe how nice the two of you were, and how helpful you were throughout the whole process. I have never been to a dealership that treated me as kindly and as much like family as you guys. I am so glad that I bought my car from Auto Paradise of Texas. You guys truly are the best, and I wouldn’t dream of doing business with anyone else.
Jim W. - 2002 Ford Ranger 76K Miles
This was the best car purchase of my life by far. Shawn was amazing. No pressure, like buying from a friend. I walked in and walked out on a Saturday with the vehicle without setting foot in the bank. Shawn received a fax confirmation from the bank and gave me the keys. I would strongly recommend Auto Paradise of Texas to anyone wanting a nice vehicle for a fair price.
Steve and Christel H. - 2003 Buick LeSabre 34K Miles
We purchased my 2003 Buick LeSabre from you and have been very happy with it. The whole transaction went extremely smooth and the car was what was represented in the ad. You guys took really great care of us and we want to thank you for all your help. It was really great meeting you and we enjoyed talking to you. Take care and if you are ever close to Bowie, be sure and look us up. Thanks again,
Yolanda M. - 2005 Toyota Avalon XLS 61K Miles
I am the proud owner of this wonderful vehicle. The car is in remarkable condition. Runs like a brand new car. The price was reasonable and the customer service was exceptional. I'd recommend Auto Paradise of Texas to family and friends. You won't be disappointed!
David T. - 2002 Volvo S40 12K Miles
What sets Shawn apart from other people who buy and sell cars is the pride he takes in what he sells. He also does relentless research on every car and truck he buys. When he can, he will talk to the previous owner. I have purchased two cars from Shawn and he does whatever he can to make sure you know everything about your purchase. Shawn would never try to deceive anyone. He really cares about his buyers.”
Brett V. - 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4X4 75K Miles
I purchased a Jeep from them last month. I was a little hesitant buying an older used car. They were very easy to work with and very nice. I had one minor thing happen since I bought the jeep, the thermostat went out, I called and they told me to bring it up and they would fix it, which they did. I would highly recommend them to any one looking for a used car. Very friendly, honest, and fair, which is a hard commodity to find now days especially in the used car arena. I would most definitely do business with them again.”
The Riggs’ - 2011 Ford Mustang 4K Miles
“We just wanted to say thank you to Shawn and his staff at Auto Paradise of Texas. We could not be more pleased with the car we purchased and the HASSEL FREE environment in which we experienced. We have purchased several used vehicles from other dealers in the past, but WILL NEVER buy from anyone but Shawn and AUTO PARADISE OF TEXAS again. Not only are his vehicles as advertised, but we can service them when we need to as well!!!”
The Griffin’s - 2004 Honda Pilot 88K Miles
“Thank you so much for helping us in purchasing the perfect car for our daughter! She loved it and we can’t thank you enough for all of your help! We will most definitely be coming back for any of our other vehicle needs and will be recommending you to all of our friends, family and co-workers!! Thanks again!!”
The Sailors - 2004 Cadillac CTS 24K Miles
We love our 2004 Cadillac (CTS with 24K Miles)!!! The only thing better than finding a car you love, is to find people that you feel have your best interest in their hearts. In today’s society to deal with people you like and trust is truly a blessing, Thanks again Shawn! Any auto needs in the future for us, family, or friends, Auto Paradise of Texas will always be the first call…
Daniel & Cynthia C. - 2002 Cadillac Deville 48K Miles
Our latest experience in purchasing a vehicle is the best yet. Shawn you were very professional, respectful, knowledgeable and very helpful. Jennifer, was also very nice. You two make the perfect team. We had been searching for a low mileage Cadillac Deville for several months. We called Shawn and he met us after hours at 7:00 P.M. to show us the car. There was no pressure on us what so ever. Shawn even took our personal check for the purchase. I highly recommend everyone who is searching for a used car, to go to Shawn at Auto Paradise of Texas. I will definitely come back when we search for our next purchase. Thank you so much,
Michael B. - 1998 Lexus GS300 94K Miles
I just wanted to post a testimonial that my recent experience at Auto Paradise of Texas was one of the best ever. Friendly, prompt, reliable, open, fair, honest, great service, great product, follow through, excellence, and warm are all words that come to mind in my puchase of a Lexus GS300 last week. Kudos to Shawn and his wife for a well run business and great service to the community. Everything we asked for we received and it was done professionally. Thanks again, Michael B.
Jaime R. - 2005 Lincoln Aviator 57K Miles
This thank you is long over due. We are so happy with our 2005 Lincoln Aviator. Everyone at Auto Paradise of Texas was accommodating while we searched for a vehicle that would fit our growing family. Not only did we bring home our new baby girl in the Aviator but then we drove literally from coast to coast taking her to see friends and family. We were comfortable and safe through 21 states and thanks to the DVD player that you installed… it was a quiet ride with our 4 year old, 2 year old and new born. Shawn and Jenn went above and beyond to find us the perfect vehicle. We can’t wait to doing business with you in the future!
Jennifer and Alex L. - 2003 Hyundai Elantra 78K Mles
My husband and I needed a new vehicle and we found a car we liked on line. We bought a 1 owner 2003 Hyundai Elantra with 78K Miles. We were getting the money we needed from out of state and Shawn and Jennifer at Auto Paradise of Texas went well above and beyond to help us leave THAT day with our vehicle, and we did! There was a couple of minor glitches but Shawn PERSONALLY made sure it was fixed THE NEXT DAY! I guarantee you will NEVER find that level of customer service ANYWHERE! Thank you Shawn and Jennifer for making a car buying experience a pleasure and a joy! We will DEFINATELY be back to but cars in the future!
The Hinckley’s - 2005 Dodge Neon 38K
I purchased a Dodge Neon from you in 2012. We have been very happy with it. I am looking for another good car. We were just so comfortable with you and your operation that we are reluctant to buy from anyone else! Can you please help us!!!!”
Greg M. (Ankeny, Iowa) - 2001 Lexus LS430 75K Miles
I am very pleased with the courteous and professional manner that I found with Auto Paradise of Texas in purchasing my new Lexus LS430. They were very thorough in their examination with me about all the features of the car and of the necessary details of making the purchase. I never felt any pressure from them to purchase the car, only good and complete answers to my questions regarding it. I certainly will use them again the next time I wish to buy a quality used automobile. It’s nice to know folks like these that you can trust when purchasing something of this magnitude.
Jennifer M. - 2002 Nissan Pathfinder 68K Miles
We recently purchased a 2002 Nissan Pathfinder from Shawn at Auto Paradise of Texas and we LOVE IT, or should I say I LOVE IT!! (I drive it most!) We went to look at several other Pathfinders before meeting with Shawn. We talked with Shawn over the phone, he sent us a video of the vehicle and he even met us pretty late to test drive it. The Pathfinder was superb! He had all the paper work ready. Shawn is very educated about all his vehicles. We bought it and haven’t had any problems at all. We even took it on a long trip to be with my family over the Thanksgiving holiday. No matter the distance we drove to get it, we got a great Pathfinder and would recommend everyone to buy their vehicle from Shawn at Auto Paradise of Texas. We will definitely be calling Shawn in a few more years when our son needs a car. Thanks Shawn, YOUR AWESOME!
Chris B. - 2007 Chevy Sliverado
Auto Paradise is awesome!!! Made the car buying process so easy and hassle free. Shawn allowed me to pick up my new truck at his house after hours since I work all day. Couldn't ask for a nicer car dealer. He even met up with myself and my wife and kids on a Sunday afternoon so that I could do a test drive. If you are looking to purchase a quality used vehicle, this is the place to go! Thanks again Shawn!
