5 Stars - We purchased a nice Toyota Highlander with about 50,000+ miles on it from Ken years ago. The SUV was a great buy and better than any deal in town or in South Carolina. We know bc we looked everywhere at the time. Last year we bought another strong running but larger Toyota SUV with over 110,000 miles and it was another better than average deal. Ken's always been helpful and honest and used Toyota's are a better buy in our opinion.
We've read some of the other reviews and to our surprise we have a much different experience and opinion. One can't expect any vehicle to be problem free when buying a USED car from any where regardless of what the seller says. You have to expect to spend up to $1,000 or more within the first year to bring the vehicle up to date on maintenance, tires or any other lingering issues bc they're going to be there. Everyone should know this before purchasing a used vehicle. Do some basic research before buying and not just test drive it for the day. Have it checked out by a quality third party technician so you know what we're buying and what needs to be repaired sooner rather than later. Dealers sell what they've got and many people trade cars in when it's overdue for some time type of maintenance. In the end, it's the buyers responsibility to make the best and most informed buying decision before signing paperwork.
We're a family with two kids so making a good buying decision with safety in mind is important. We've happily referred people to Ken and will likely buy another vehicle from him in the future.
1 Stars - Bought a 2006 volvo s40 2.4i ended up having to spend over 7,000$ in repairs. The sun roof leaked terribly 300$ right there, then had to get the water sucked up from the carpets which were drenched and stank another couple hundred. The wind shield wiper fluid motor was broken another 300$, the engine mount was cracked and broke 1 month in and crushed the axle and needed all new belts, a new axle and several other new parts. eventually it all added up to over 7,000$ in repairs for a 13,000$ car, they refused to pay for any of it, I had also bought the top of the line warranty they offered which conveniently covered nothing. Strongly recommend NOT buying from this dealer.
2 Stars - Buyer Beware - This dealer wants you to test drive the car and tell him what is wrong with it. He will ask you to pay for the repairs which are only a bandaid on the real problem. Bought a dark blue Volvo XC90 on Labor Day and paid $200 in repairs before I even took it off of the lot. Ended up bringing the car back because it still had the same problems. My only option was to trade it in at this place. Every car I test drove had a problem. I ended up going with a BMW X5 because of the Carfax. It had all regular maintenance and then was repossessed. However, even it had a clicking noise from the rear passenger tire. I ended up having to pay $150 in repairs to drive it off of the lot! Have since paid $1200 in repairs on this car. Have had it for two months. He will not buy the car back from me and every car I test drove in there had a problem. Even the good review of Carolina Cars of Mt. Pleasant talks about repairs having to be made on the car. This guy buys them from auction, cleans them - not very well - and then puts them on the market. If you need a car, buy a certified used car, or at least one where the dealer has a checklist of items to deem a car fit to sell. I mean, with the first car, I had to even pay for the oil to be changed because it was "muddy". This should have been done before it was listed for sale. Good luck!

5 Stars - AWESOME place to but a car!!! I bought my first car from ken 3 years ago and have passed it down to 2 of my children who are in high school! GREAT car! We bought another car a few months ago and found ken to be VERY HONEST, as always, and his cars PRICED LOWER than anywhere else in town. The experience was great as was the service! I HIGHLY recommend Carolina Cars to everyone I know if they are looking for a really great pre-owned car. I will never go anywhere else!! THRILLED!!!!

5 Stars - Friend of mine bought a car there and told me about it one day I passed by and saw a car that I was interested in , Ken Smith the owner came out and talked with me I drove the vehicle and liked it very much, Ken gave me more then my trade in was worth and found me financing at a better rate then I had been able to find on my own, I am now the owner of a very very clean pre-owned Lexus. the car has been great . I found this place to be a great business with superb customer service never had any problems or concerns and would not hesitate to buy here again. in fact he has a great motorcycle I have my eye on.

5 Stars - Wow! I highly recommend purchasing a car from Low Country Volkswagen in Mt Pleasant. My experience with the staff exceeded my expectations. I worked with Van Gainey, who had my car spotless and displayed in the showroom when I went in to sign the final paperwork. I also met with Jason Stone, the GM, who assured me that the car I was purchasing was not only solid and safe, but was truly a luxury car for an affordable price. I am confidant is sharing that I knew exactly what I wanted when I walked in and know that my requests were heard and honored. The whole experience was without pressure to buy more...just honesty and what was best for me.
5 Stars - Although my wife and I did not buy a car from LCVW, we had a great experience with the employees at this location. Phil Tackett was very informative and helpful throughout the car buying decision process. He was not pushy, which was a welcomed experience. You could tell Phil loves VW's by listening to his knowledge of the VW sportwagen and everything it has to offer. Kelly Colangelo was also very helpful in this whole process. Both Phil and Kelly never bothered us with too many phone calls or emails. They did call and email, but we were never flooded with either. I would recommend LCVW to anyone who is interested in buying a VW or any car.
5 Stars - Appropriately placed in Mount PLEASANT, that's exactly what Low Country Volkswagen delivers: a courteous, professional, honest and PLEASANT experience. My husband and I have purchased a CC, a Jetta and a Routan in the past several years. Not only has the sales experience been a pleasant one, with a great trade in offers and easy, transparent sales process but I have to take a moment to brag on James Ahlstrom in the service department. He knows me by name, greets me with a smile and always makes sure I am in and out and taken care of. I love my VW's and appreciate the great team at Low Country~
5 Stars - Arrived in Charleston in May just before CofC graduation with a 2011 Jetta TDI Sportwagen from Maine in heat shock. The a/c wouldn't work! Low Country took it in right off the highway, evaluated it and by 2 pm the next day it was all fixed. A dealer is only as good as it's service team and these guys are great! If I didn't live in Maine I would be buying my VW's there.
1 Stars - Price gouging on new cars and high doc fees are making me go somewhere else.
