On the weekend after Thanksgiving 2020 I decided to buy a used car from a small dealership to help a small business during the Covid Pandemic.... I found Harbor View Auto online and found a small Kia advertised... I spoke to Angel, the salesman and went to the dealership and bought the car... I was unaware at the time, even after a test drive that the car had a check engine light problem... I returned the car multiple times trying to resolve the issue but the problem still persisted... I believe on the fifth time returning the car for the same problem Angel and his mechanic staff found the ghost bug that plagued the car... And now the car runs great!!! They stood by their pledge and their company to fix the car with no extra charges for repairing the car!!! I would recommend Harbor View Auto to anyone looking to buy a used car! Their professionalism is outstanding!!!
Our response: Thank you for your patience and although we do everything to try and make things right from the very beginning, sometimes you simply run into issues when dealing with used vehicles. Nevertheless I'm glad everything is running fine, and once again thank you for your business:)
I have purchased several used cars over the years from used car dealers. Those encounters have all been painful and frustrating. I expected the same here. To my great surprise, my experience interacting with Angel at Harbor View was the complete opposite of that. Angel was professional, honest, forthright, polite, curteous and accomodating. It was the easiest and most pleasant encounter I have had purchasing a car, brand new or used. I rate my experience at Harbor View as EXCELLENT all the way around. Thanks again Angel Hernandez Sr. and your staff.
Our response: Thank you for your business :)
I live about 45 minutes from HarborView and when I say this was the easiest and most professional car buying I’ve ever experienced! I found my car online, called Angel and he responded back not even an hour later with all the details I needed to come get it. Once I got all paperwork in order we scheduled the date and I made my way to HarborView where my car was clean and running for me. A few signatures later....I pulled off in my VW Passat...which I love ! I’m positive I’ll get all my future cars from here with such an effortless process.
Our response: Thank you for your business
I have been to many many mechanics and for one reason or another I have had to drop them either making things worse or just not capable of doing the job. Jorge Camacho is truely a gifted man when it comes to fixing cars. I had a problem with a Saturn and it made a unusual noise in the engine when it would start up, I saw 3 people including the dealership(BIG MISTAKE) and in 5 minutes Jorge was able to know what was wrong and fixed the car that day, this was easily 10 years ago and I have not looked back since. That you Jorge for always helping me when i needed you! Please don t ever reitre!!
Our response: Thank you for your kind words:)
Working with Angel the car salesman was amazing! He worked hard to get us a great deal on a car. We told him what we could afford and had difficulties at other places getting cars but he was understanding and determined to put my family into a nice car that was the perfect price! I recommend Harborview Auto to anyone who wants an honest dealer, professional assistance, and a great deal!
Our response: Thank you for your business :)
Angel was a lifesaver!! With my credit not being good at all he was able to secure a great down payment and I was able to leave with the car of my choice!!! I highly recommend this dealership. Ask for angel he really takes care of his customers. I didn’t feel pressured at all he was more than patient with the process and explains everything in great detail. I will definitely be back when it’s time to get another car!!
Our response: Thank you for your business :)
These Guys are “One in a Million!”
The last car I bought from Harborview drove for 370,000 miles. It would of lasted longer but I overheated the engine and blew the head gasket last week (totally my fault). I needed a new car asap so compared a car at Harborview with a Chrysler Dealership in Levittown, NY. I visited both locations on the same day and the experiences couldn’t of been more extreme. Both cars were basically the same and where quoted basically the same price. $11,800. Harborview was fast, very convenient and kept me informed of the approval process during the day and lowered the price to $9,500. The Levittown dealership added two dealer prep charges of $985 and $319. Then the Levittown Dealership made me wait over an hour for their credit dept.. During that time, I received the final call from Harborview confirming the deal was credit approved and I could pick the car up that afternoon. Since I was still waiting to meet any credit person from the Chrysler Dealership in Levittown,NY, I ordered an Uber and left to pick up my new car at Harborview Auto Sales in Stamford, CT. I’ve been doing business with Harborview for about 10 years. They do all my car maintenance and I have found the honest mechanic all of us wish we had. My ex-wife even brings her cars there too. Now that says alot. My ex loves Harborview too!
Our response: Greg as ALWAYS thank you for your continued business..
Angel is amazing!! He helped me buy my first car with no problems! Everything was smooth sailing! He really went out of his way to make sure everything was set and ready to go- I couldn’t be more grateful! Thank you Angel for all your help, I’ll be seeing you again ??
Our response: Thanks for your business :)

I found the perfect place to buy it from ....Again Thank you You told me I bought a good car and I believe you. I got an awesome price and with low miles at Harbor View Auto Sales Stamford!
Our response: THANK YOU for your business, God bless...
Recently began the search to replace our totaled, mint condition Dodge Grand Caravan. After unsuccessfully visiting several dealership and finding they were our of our price range, we stopped at Harbor View Auto. We described what we were looking for and Angel directed us to a car that would meet our needs and price range. At no time was he a pushy car dealer. Without hesitation, we would recommend Harbor View and Angel!
Our response: If I could rate my customers your'e definitely 5 stars in my book :)
our new used car
We went shopping for a car to replace our recently totaled Grand Caravan, which was in mint condition. We visited different dealerships to replace what we had. Needless to say, there was not nearly enough money from the insurance to cover any car from any dealership we had visited or seen on line in the New York and CT area. Very disheartened, my wife said "let's check out this used car dealership." We stopped at Harbor View Auto and met Angel. We told him about our experience and he suggested a vehicle that met our needs without trying to push us to pay for anything beyond our means. He worked with us like a perfect gentlemen, and we now have a car to replace our old one, not only in our price range, but one that we really like from a man we came to trust and will do business with again. Highly recommend Harbor View and Angel. recommend to anyone. This was definitely a 5 star experience!:) David
Our response: Thank you David and Catherine it was truly a pleasure with you as well :)
Most excellent local car dealer
I had been working with Angel and his rental service for quite some time. I was always happy with the level of customer service provided. When I was ready to purchase a vehicle, I went through Angel. I am so happy to support a local business with such nice people. I would highly recommend Angel and Harborview Auto Sales. Much thanks and gratitude!
Our response: Thank you Jack for your business it truly was a pleasure working with you :)
I just want to say that Jorge Camacho, the Mechanic at Harbor View is without a doubt an excellent mechanic. Never once have I ever had to take my vehicles somewhere else because he could not fix it. I have had other mechanics, no names mentioned but Firestone in Stamford Ct which they are supposed to be CT approved for Emissions etc. They charged me SO MUCH money and could not fix my car. They told me I have to bring my car to the Dealer, went to the dealer and we all know how that works. Charged an arm and leg only to NOT fix the problem. So I brought my Jeep to Jorge and fixed my car!! I tell everyone I know about him because he is fair and gets the job done.That is my experience and he is my mechanic for life! That also goes for all the other cars I have had!!
Our response: Thank you for being a loyal customer :)

I bought my second car from Angel over the weekend. It was a fully loaded 2013 Ford Fusion Titanium and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. After giving Angel my vehicle requirements, he worked hard to find the car that I wanted. He worked with buyers to secure a vehicle for me and even went as far as going to an auction to buy my vehicle outright. I highly recommend going to Angel for your next car because he doesn't sell you car for the sake of making money. He sells you the car that you want.
Our response: Thanks Jay for your patience and business...We made it work!!
Angel that is his name and that is what he is Angel... Harborview has been an excellent experience for me every time I went there. Never been to a dealer where the honesty is genuine. I appreciate everything about Angel and Jorge. I appreciate everything they has done for me.They are terrific people and I suggest you want honest business go see Angel at Harborview Auto Sales, Stamford, CT
Our response: Thanks you Tonya :)
needed a car for the upcoming school semester. Angel took care of me in only a matter of hours. I'm talking trade-in, registration, processing and financing all done within only a couple of hours! I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a good deal very quickly. Very professional, honest and inviting. I would do business here again!
Our response: Thanks for your business :)
After looking on line for weeks I had an idea of what I wanted. My son spent the whole day with me looking for the right cal dealer. Harbor View was the last dealer we say that day but I knew immediately I trusted Angel. He is a straight forward man, no pretense and no pushing or game playing. He helped us immediately all the questions we asked and took a test drive. We bought the car immediately. I love the car, it drives beautifully but more than that I felt I had a friend at the end of the purchase. Thank you Angel, you changed my opinion of car dealers and will have no hesitation to recommend him. Deborah Warfield
Our response: Thank you Deborah :)
My wife and I went to look at a Nissan Rogue on a Saturday at 11:15. By 1:00 pm we were driving it home. Angel was very helpful, answered all our questions and gave us the space to make the decision. He also made the process clear and easy. Very pleased with it all. Thanks Angel!
Our response: Thanks Joe for your business...
Angel. Was amazing he was extremely patient with me. I’m a picky person and he was able to find the perfect car for me. I did payment plans for deposit on my vehicle. He took his time with the paper work. Explained every important detail to me. Overall my experience with him was great. I definitely recommend him.

My visit to harborview auto sales was amazing angel got me approved for my car and it was a outstanding proccess i would recommend you Harborview Auto Sales go there and Angel will do you a Miracle for your next Car
Our response: Thank you for allowing me to be of service :)
I rarely write reviews but I have to say the service that I was provided at Harbor View Auto Sales exceeded my expectations. Angel is an honest and straightforward businessman and I have no buyers remorse about the Mazda 3 I purchased. Don't think twice about stopping by if anything you like is in their inventory. None of their cars come from New York auction houses so don't worry about getting a lemon.
Our response: Thank you for your business and it truly was a pleasure working with you :)
I purchased a 2011 Jeep compass 6/18 and it runs as if it were brand new. Angel was great in assisting me with my new purchase and very informative with details surrounding my new buy.. I will defiantly return when I am ready for another purchase.
Our response: Thank you for your business it was a pleasure working with you...Best of luck :)
by Kitty from Allen, KS | April 21, 2018 I did an exhaustive amount of research and chose exactly the car I wanted to buy next. Then I went through every internet supplier I could find to make a chart of the top 8 or so for the specifications I most wanted. I messaged those dealers all one morning and asked them each the same two questions - would you be willing to ship to me and do you have any idea the cost of shipping (I'm in Kansas). Angel answered my questions immediately and directly. As I made my way down the list of other dealers to message - I realized Angel had already responded to three other questions at lightning speed. We were well on our way to closing up the sale. The other five dealers responded later in the day to three or four days later - each of them asking for my phone number so they could hook me up with a sales person to "talk about my needs". None of them directly answered my original questions. Many of them asked me when I could come in person to shop. In the meantime - Angel sold me a car. Then he was very patient and knowledgable about handling the sale across state lines - which my banker was reluctant to get involved in until Angel answered all her questions and provided every detail of info she asked for promptly and accurately. So, he trained her I guess you could say (we're in Kansas, need I say more?) I guess the lesson here is that some of the shoppers on cars.com are like me - we want to do our own research and then order our car. Angel understands a buyer like me. And gave me the absolute low down price to get this car sold. Thank you!
Our response: Kitty, It truly was a pleasure working with you and I must say that in order for an internet transaction to be successful, "trust" is key on both ends and I must say you surely held up your end of the deal. Thanks for your business and I wish you nothing but the best:) Angel Hernandez
I needed to get my brakes done but I didn't want to spend the money most places charge so I bought my own parts, well come to find out it's not as easy as I first thought so I asked Harbor View Auto if they would put them on for me and they did. WOW! Not to many places will perform the labor if you bring in your own parts. Thanks Jorge :)
I'd recommend Angel at Harbor View Auto to anyone who is interested in getting a car. Angel helped me find the perfect work truck and gave me a unbelievable price. I looked online to make sure I was getting a good deal and I was shocked on how good of a deal I was getting. I couldn't find one truck comparable to the one angel sold me for the price he did. Thank you angel! I will be sending many friends your way!
I was looking for a vehicle but after going through a divorce my credit was less than stellar, I didn't want to go to a new car dealer and get embarrassed so a friend of mine recommended this dealer and I can't tell you how comfortable they made me feel and now I'm driving my new used car and I couldn't be happier. (Sorry honey you couldn't keep me down forever)
by Josh Brown from Stamford, CT | December 13, 2016 Recently I purchased a vehicle from Harbor View Auto Sales and was quite impressed how easy it was to get my car. There was no pressure what so ever and Angel was a pleasure to work with. I definitely recommend you give them a visit if you're in the market for a car.

I bought my first car with Angel and it was the most easy and stress free experience! He really cares about his customers and it shows! I love my new car, it is exactly what I was looking for and will most definitely go to Harbor View Auto Sales in the future. I recommend Harbor View to anyone looking!
Working with Angel at Harbour View was a real pleasure. You don't get the pressure that usually comes with buying a used car. He gives you space and time to make your decision and is really easy to work with. I would defintely recommend if you're looking for a pleasant car buying experience.
I've been looking for a BMW for quite some time and I saw that they were offering one for $8300 a bit more than I was willing to spend. I took them up on there offer of CA$H is King and offered them $7000 CASH and we ended up making a deal. I guess they weren't kidding when they say CA$H is KING!
Troy from Port Chester
I Needed a vehicle and never thought with my credit I would be able to get one but after working with the staff at Harbor View they put me into the car of my dreams,(2005 Honda Accord EX)and the best part of it was that the payments were affordable and it included warranty for the term of the loan. Thanks guys!!
by Pete from Stamford, CT | October 25, 2013 Unbelievable! What a deal they gave me on 2004 Honda Civic. I've been looking for an inexpensive vehicle and when I visited the dealership on a different vehicle, I saw this Honda Civic and fell in love with it and the deal was better than I could imagine. Angel was very nice and I would definitely recommend him.
by Brian J from Norwalk, CT | December 9, 2013 HARBORVIEWAUTO IS A GREAT DEALER ! ! ! ! ! . . . I bought a 2002 BMW X5. . . .this car is awesome. . . .Angel was very helpful salesman. . . .he made deal happen with small down payment and "not so great" credit. . . . . I always buy cars from new car dealers. . . .but they had the X5 I wanted (and it was $2,000 less than any other dealer I could find). . . . COME DOWN ! ! . . . .
by GB4B11 from Stamford, CT | February 14, 2014 Came in to drive a Mazda 6 and had the opportunity to work with a really solid fellow named Angel. I could tell he was genuine and wanted to make me a great deal so we could both be happy, and that's just what happened!! I couldn't be any happier with the deal, thanks guys!
