Default Lots of Subaru's in Charleston, SC

My girl friend bought her Forester from this dealer.

http://www.charlestonautosales.com/

His name is Jim Gerow and if I remember correctly he used to run the Subaru Dealership in the area. When we were there last year the only employee was himself. He buys most of his cars at auction in the Southeast (YAY no rust!). HE DOES NOT HAGGLE! The price marked is the price you pay. Though I'm sure if something serious were wrong he would work with you.

We bought an 04 Forester 2.5XS (130k miles) from him, he had just gotten it in the day before so he didn't even know much about it. Car was a good deal for the money.

Now we have had a few problems out of the car, but it could have happened to any car with those miles.

- Power steering pump went and took the rack seals with it (bummer)
- Alternator went
- RR Wheel bearing

Doesn't bother me, I've seen cars come into the shop with less miles and have similar problems. Stuff happens.

My only complaint is that he sprays some crap on the engine bay to make everything shiny, but the dirt just sticks to it and its a pain to work on the car.

Overall a very good guy with a decent selection of cars.

Seems like a reasonable dealer!
