I bought my car from this vendor and have been recommending him to others, but I notice that my car is still listed in his website inventory 5 months after purchase.

I'm not sure what to make of this, but an extra bit of caution seems warranted.

Did this outfit go out of business?

The website is not maintained, that is for sure. And since they are an internet business, that is probably a bad sign.

You could try calling them, but Caveat Emptor. The owner was Ravi Brar.

Thanks Sage. I have been looking into these online car buying portals in desperation. Vroom is one, Carvana another. The latter doesn't show images of the GOM, so not sure how people are determining which LEAFs are worth it; guess they're just counting on the return policy.

We are back! There are currently 23 LEAF's in stock (2013 thru 2015 model year cars). Please check out our new website with 360 exterior and interior views, detail photos and CarFax report for every car.

We'll be adding Fiat 500e's and BMW i3's in February and perhaps a few Volts also. Our marketing guy keeps pushing for Tesla, but I think that's just because he wants to drive one :D

Anyway here is the new site:

We would love feedback from the community here as we get rolling again. We have some cool stuff in store for your all...

The site loads a bit too slowly with DSL. Maybe clickable thumbnail images on the main page?

thx leftie!

home page loading slowly or car pages or all pages?

now that the site is nearly complete we are in the process of moving it to a CDN (content delivery network) which will speed things up.

also the 360 views are a problem on mobile right now...we're working in them

They were both a bit slow. It may be the servers slowing it down.
