default TAT Auto Traders - www.tatautotraders.com - Arkansas

Has anyone had any experience buying from www.tatautotraders.com Arkansas? I was told they've become a full/real Consignment store... So that's great, but I haven't met anyone who bought one from them yet. I mean no offense - I am just excited to seemingly have a real dealer just 3 hours away from me... But if it's not a 100% real full car consignment. I should just buy from TAT Auto Traders?

It definitely is, and I'd highly recommend them. Sprite (member here) has bough his truck from them. Contact Ed Bolian there...great sales guy. My GF bought a G63 from him and it couldn't have been easier.

Wonderful! Ed's name rings a bell. I think Aaron, a local car nut, has bought a few cars from him... has a 12c spider as well.

Anyway, thanks again for the info

THESE GUYS ARE WONDERFUL!! I bought my 12C from them. I have sent them friends of mine who have also had similar experience in buying exotic cars there. Brandon, Carson, Ed, and Bill are all top notch folks. The dealer is above and beyond the norm.

A quick funny story of my first experience with www.tatautotraders.com......the first time I went to TAT Auto Traders my son and I were actually going to purchase a e92 that same day from a local Dealer who had 11 leftover 2010 models in inventory. We arrive at the store ready to buy, I'm wearing a ratty T-shirt and shorts with some old sneakers and my kid is not looking much better. The guys wouldn't even let us sit in the e92. My son suggested we go over to TAT Auto Traders as I was hot to buy something that day. We show up at TAT Auto Traders and there sat a Black e92 M3....I had been wanting one for a while. At first, no one would come and talk with us, the place is like a toy store and gets so many weekend tire kickers and photo opportunists. After a few minutes I walked over to Brandon and Carson (didn't know them at the time) and made them a buy it now offer which got their attention. After a few minutes of haggling we bought the car and a great relationship began. If those delear guys only knew.....lol

They also do alot of consignment and "other brand" exotics through used inventory. If you want to test drive a SLS, Aventador, Bentley, or other stuff that the local OEM dealer keeps behind ropes, go see the guys there at TAT Auto Traders.

Feel free to PM or call me if you have any questions.

Wow, what a glowing testimonial!!

Sounds like I should definitely go with them. Carsen has been very respectful to me the whole time, and I got the feel he's an enthusiast for sure. I'm excited to hear such great things about them in this thread.

I was looking at used 12C's a couple of months ago. As negotiations got underway, it was clear they couldn't touch the deals other dealers were offering (both on the 12C and my trade). I ended up buying from Park Place in Dallas. As far as service goes, it's been a little bit of a mixed bag for me. Luckily, I haven't had to have much done. I got the P13 update without incident. I also asked them to look at an issue I'd been having with the swipe doors (I have the double swipe problem others in this forum have mentioned). They investigated and determined this was "normal" since other cars on their lot did the same thing. At my next service, I'll push harder on getting that resolved. Anyway, certainly there's no question in my mind they are a full-fledged McLaren dealer and you shouldn't hesitate to put them in the mix as you are shopping around.
