About Driscoll Motors - Selling Pre-Owned Vehicles in Austin, Texas
Please take a moment to read about us.
Founded in 1980 by Michael Driscoll, Driscoll Motors is a local family owned business located on a large 6-acre lot with a 13,000-sq/ft showroom facility at 10301 Burnet Road in Austin, Texas (13 blocks north of 183 or 3 blocks south of Braker Lane, see map).
Driscoll Motors is a dealership whose primary business activity is the wholesale brokering of used vehicles between car dealers throughout Texas, but unlike most wholesale brokers, we DO sell vehicles to the public!
Our knowledgeable buyers search the southwestern United States for the finest vehicles available so we see and broker literally hundreds and hundreds of late model (primarily 4 years old & newer) import and domestic cars, trucks, SUVs, and vans each and every month... a large percentage of which are still covered by Factory New Car Warranty. We are a Better Business Bureau A+ Accredited business, licensed by the State of Texas, and bonded for your protection.
Due to the primarily wholesale nature of Driscoll Motors' business, most of the vehicles listed on this website are priced at or very close to wholesale market value and are what we expect to get for our vehicles from other dealers. Consequently, many individuals like yourself have found outstanding vehicles at bargain prices without having to negotiate to get a good deal. At Driscoll Motors EVERYONE receives the same low price regardless of individual negotiating skills or group affiliation (we don't play favorites here).
We DO NOT tack on... a reconditioning fee, a certification fee, a customer service fee, a warranty transfer fee, a protection package, a service/maintenance coupon book, an advertising fee, OR ANY OTHER DECEPTIVE CHARGES over and above our advertised Internet prices. Except for the state mandated TT&L fees and a reasonable $50 documentary fee (the lowest doc fee in Texas), what you see is what you pay. Even if you CAN find a comparable vehicle at another dealer for the same low price as ours, our lower doc fee and absence of other fees makes our vehicle's BOTTOM-LINE price up to several hundred dollars less than theirs.
FYI... The used vehicle market is currently experiencing a SEVERE supply shortage! 2008 through 2011 models are in especially short supply because of the very low new vehicle production and sales during that time period. LOW MILE 2007 and older models are also very hard to come by. If you haven't been in the market for a vehicle in a few years and you were wondering why the prices are so high, now you know!
Since Driscoll Motors is different than other dealers, here are a few pertinent FAQs that you should know before contacting or visiting us:
> We allow our customers to evaluate our vehicles unmolested. We will not pressure you in any way and we will not hover. We don't SELL vehicles here, we help people to BUY them!
> Our listed prices are cash selling prices, not asking prices, and they are MORE than fair!
> Our listed prices don't include state mandated TT&L fees.
> We don't offer in-house financing and we don't accept financing from Roadloans, Capital One, or Bank of America.
> Trade-ins with clean titles that run and drive are welcome and evaluated IN PERSON ONLY.
> We sell USED vehicles here so you should expect to see signs of normal use (a few minor cosmetic flaws, light soiling, mild odors, some tire wear, etc). If you are an obsessively picky person you should be looking at NEW vehicles!
> Extra keys, remotes, floor mats, owner's manuals (etc) may not be available for every vehicle. You get what we get.
> Our vehicles are sold AS-IS and AS-SHOWN but the majority of them are still covered by factory warranty.
> We DO sell extended warranties (for vehicles that qualify based on age/miles).
> We DO allow professional inspections of our vehicles.
> We DO provide FREE CarFax and AutoCheck history reports on all of our vehicles.
> We don't provide (or arrange-for) shipping or delivery of our vehicles.
> We are not set-up to accept credit or debit cards, sorry.
> All vehicles are sold on a first-come-first-served basis. We don't hold vehicles.
> If a vehicle listed here on OUR website is tagged with a yellow "PENDING" flag on the picture, it has been sold, sorry.
Also, while you are visiting please take the time to read our disclaimer at http://www.driscollmotors.net/disclaimer.cfml.
Unlike most other dealers (or commercial websites like AutoTrader and Cars.com), our website is maintained on a REAL-TIME basis and is ALWAYS up-to-date. Due to the wholesale nature of Driscoll Motors' business we rotate through our inventory much faster than most retail dealers. If you don't see the vehicle you are looking for here today, check back regularly because we get new inventory daily. Vehicles are posted on OUR website as soon as they are available. When we are closed our lot is ALWAYS open for unassisted browsing, but not being able to find a specific vehicle doesn't mean that we don't have it.
Thank you for visiting and taking the time to read this. We hope to see you soon!
