About Us

For 40 years, McCarthy’s has been San Luis Obispo County’s top independent used car dealership. Our reputation for outstanding customer service and satisfaction is built on over 30,000 successful transactions and thousands of repeat customers.

 

We know that an excellent buying experience starts before you even walk on the lot. Our inventory of high-quality used vehicles is carefully selected, sourced from reputable sellers from around the state. Each vehicle then goes through our extensive evaluation and reconditioning program by ASC Certified Mechanics.

 

We take an informational approach to sales, giving you all of the facts you need to make an informed decision. Our next priority is to make the buying process a simple and pleasant one. We have relationships with every bank and credit union so that we can find the best financing and lowest interest rates for our customers, regardless of credit scores. We can usually complete the entire lending process quickly onsite, allowing you to drive your car home the same day you find it.

 

McCarthy’s stands by each vehicle we sell, offering a 90-day full-coverage warranty on most vehicles, with optional extended warranties up to 5 years/ 100,000 miles. Customer satisfaction is our top priority. We have the highest sales volume of any independent dealership on the Central Coast and have been named Top Used Car Dealership by a New Times consumer poll for 11 years. We invite you to visit our lot or give us a call and find out why we are the most trusted used car dealership in San Luis Obispo County.
