    Has anyone dealt with Bellagio motors in Costa Mesa?

    I got approached today to put one of my cars in their showroom on consignment. Usually I wouldn't bother but the guy offered to buy the car outright at my asking price if they didn't sell it within 2 months.

    Just wondering if anyone knows or has dealt with them.

    Thanks
    Mark

    In this market if anyone offers full price you either are selling wholesale or they have no idea the value. If you are asking anywhere near retail take the money ....

    Thanks, but I'm looking for an integrity recommendation rather than evaluation. I don't wish to place a car on consignment unless the place is respectable, for obvious reasons.

    be curious to hear from someone...

    i got contacted too and I will meet the sales person on Friday to get a feel for the deal. Maybe look at their other cars too...? :D

    i've always sold my own cars in the past, but this is my first time selling a car in southern california where consignments like this seem alive and well. :)

    I recently purchased an S class from bellagio motors about a month ago. Its the second car I have purchased from them. Ive known fred for several years, hes a great guy and pleasant to work with. A good friend of mine consigned his phantom, flying spur, and lexus suv thru fred in the last year and was pleased with his experience. Good Luck with the sale, whichever direction you go!

  14. My 2 cents....Unless I personally know the owner of the dealership, there is ZERO chance I would consign a car. First, check with your insurance company. You will find you may NOT be covered if it is stolen as you actually sign the car over to the dealership in many instances. I know of someone whose car was stolen off a lot while on consignment and his insurance refused to pay.

    I also know a Beverly Hills attorney who got taken on 2 cars he had on consignment at a very nice dealership in Irvine. Dealer packed up in the middle of the night with about $3 million never paying anyone for their cars.

    My advice...1) check with your insurance agent first....2) never sign the car over.

    Seller Beware.....

    So what happened to this clown? The latest information I could find was that he is out on bail and made a court date a couple of months back.
