AutoLogic and South Florida Car Buyers, Inc. are two important businesses that appeal to three distinct groups: people who want to properly maintain their current automobile, people who might be interested in selling their car, and people who are interested in buying pre-owned vehicles. South Florida Car Buyers, Inc. maintains a list of their inventory, complete with photographs, online at AutoLogic has been repairing automobiles for 40 years, and thousands of Broward County residents can be counted as satisfied customers.

I spoke with Steve Coty, manager at AutoLogic and South Florida Car Buyers, Inc., about both businesses and their customers’ needs.

Tell us how South Florida Car Buyers makes it easy for people to sell their cars to you.

We buy cars locally and all throughout the United States. We can pick up the vehicle right there at the customer’s home, with free pickup and free towing. We finalize the title with the state and we can pay them for their car right on the spot.

Tell me about your pre-owned automobiles. Are there any you like that are on sale right now?

Oh, yeah. I really like this 2007 Infiniti FX35; it’s very classy, and it’s priced at $14,000. Then there’s a Porsche 911 that’s in the shop and will be ready for resale any day now. I also like the 2008 Land Rover Range Rover in silver that’s going for $21,000, and there’s also a 2007 Chevy Avalanche truck that’s in great condition and it’s priced at $14,000.

At AutoLogic, when you do full service on a vehicle, what does that entail?

Full service can include anything and everything from oil changes to fixing transmission to tire changes. Ariel owns the shop and he does a great job on everything related to auto repair. He started out with his own gas station on Las Olas Boulevard and he moved to this location and he’s run everything here for 40 years.

In what ways have customers praised your businesses?

They say they love our great customer service. If someone is selling their car or if we have someone who is turning their car over to the shop, not only do we take care of their car, we even drive them home if we need to, and that’s not something people do every day anymore. It’s important that the customer knows they’re appreciated.
