Auto Week: Bayview Auto Sales


FRONT, PARTY IN FRONT. I HAD A MULLET. I’M GOING TO FIND THOSE PHOTOS. NO. I AM. WE’RE WRAPPING UP AUTO WEEK HERE ON “LIVING808”. WE’VE HAD A CHANCE ALL WEEK. WE VISITED A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT DEALERSHIPS. WE’RE GOING TO SEE WHAT GREAT VEHICLES THEY HAVE TO OFFER. TODAY WE HEAD TO WAIPAHU TO CHECK IN AT BAYVIEW AUTO SALES AND FIND OUT WHAT THEY HAVE AVAILABLE. CHECK IT OUT. ♪ BAYVIEW, WHAT DO YOU DO? I LOVE THAT JINGLE. WE’RE HERE AT BAYVIEW AUTO SALES IN WAIPAHU CHATTING WITH OWNER ED ABOUT THEIR BUSINESS. HI. HOW ARE YOU? TRINI: I’M DOING GREAT. TEAMTELL US ABOUT BAYVIEW AUTO SALES. BAYVIEW HAB HAS BEEN BUSINESS ABOUT SIX YEARS. WE STARTED AS A SMALL STORE. MYSELF AND MY COUSIN STARTED THAT. WE GOT BIGGER AND EXPANDED TO AIEA AND A SMALL STORE TO WAIPAHU AND WOULD YOU LIEU — WAILUKU, MAUI. IT GOT TO BE A LITTLE MUCH TO BE THAT SPREAD OUT. SO WE TRIMMED THE SMALLER STORES. WE TOOK OUR KANEOHE LOCATION AWAY. WE TOOK OUR AIEA LOCATION AWAY. AND WE GOT A MUCH LARGER LOCATION HERE IN WAIPAHU. AS YOU CAN SEE, WE’RE STANDING IN OUR NEW SHOWROOM FLOOR ON FARRINGTON HIGHWAY. THIS LOCATION HERE HAS ABOUT 35,000 SQUARE FEET AS OPPOSED TO OUR OTHER LOCATIONS, THAT WERE ABOUT FIVE THOUSAND. TRINI: TERRIFIC. WHAT MAKES YOUR DEALERSHIP DIFFERENT? WE OFFER FINANCING FOR EVERYONE. WE OFFER A WIDE VARIETY OF VEHICLES TO CHOOSE FROM. WE START START AT VERY LOW PRICING AND GO UP TO THINGS AS NEW AS 2015 AND ’16 SO WE CAN COMPETE WITH THE SMALLER GUYS AND BIG GUYS. OUR FINANCING PROGRAMS ARE DESIGNED TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERYONE CAN BUY A CAR HERE. IF YOU COME DOWN HERE WITH GOOD CREDIT, YOU CAN BUY A CAR ANYWHERE. BUT IF YOU COME DOWN AND HAVE SOMETHING A LITTLE MORE MARGINAL WHERE YOU HAVE THINGS YOU HAVE TO DEAL WITH, WE HAVE BANK PROGRAMS AND OFFER IN-HOUSE FINANCING, WHICH IS A DOWN PAYMENT DRIVEN PROGRAM WITH NO CREDIT CHECK. TRINI: TERRIFIC. THERE ARE A LOT OF ADVANTAGES TO BUYING PREOWNED CARS. IF YOU LOOK AT NEW CARS, THE AVERAGE DEPRECIATION IS ABOUT 35%. SO YOU’RE GOING TO SUFFER THAT DEPRECIATION ON WHATEVER THE DOLLAR AMOUNT CAR PURCHASE IS. FOR EVERY $10,000 THAT YOU SPEND ON A NEW CAR, YOU’RE GOING TO LOSE $3,500 OF THAT EVERY YEAR. SO IT CAN BE A LITTLE BIT COSTLY WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT A $30,000 CAR. LOSING 1050 IN YOUR FIRST YEAR OF OWNERSHIP. THAT’S A BIG PILL FOR SOME PEOPLE TO SWALLOW. TRINI: RIGHT. PEOPLE MAY HAVE AN IDEA WHEN THEY THINK PREOWNED CARS. I’M LOOKED AROUND THE LOT, AND YOU HAVE SOME REALLY BEAUTIFUL CARS THAT BARELY LOOK PREOWNED. YEAH. AND THAT’S KIND OF WHAT I WAS TALKING ABOUT WITH THE INVENTORY. YOU’RE GOING TO FIND THAT WE’RE NOT YOUR AVERAGE USED CAR STORE. I RAN NEW CAR STORES FOR TEN YEARS AT THE ABOUT THE BEGINNING OF MY CAREER. AND FROM COMING FROM THAT, IS WHAT SPAWNED THE WAY THAT WE DO THINGS HERE, WHICH IS OFFER SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE. THE LOWER PRICE CAR FOR SOMEONE WHO CAN’T AFFORD SOMETHING. BUT STILL QUALITY INSPECTED. WE DO 28 CHECKS ON ALL OUR VEHICLES. WE OFFER GUARANTEES TO EVERYTHING. WE ALSO OFFER A SPREAD THAT MOST GUYS DON’T DO. THE NEWER STUFF, 2015 AND ’16s. WE RECENTLY SOLD A 2016 CORVETTE. 2016 SELL-BY-COBRA.2016 SHELBY COBRA. TRINI: THANK YOU SO MUCH. THE BEST WAY TO SEE THE CARS IS TO COME DOWN HERE TO WAIPAHU BAYVIEW AUTO SALES. THANK YOU SO MUCH. THANK YOU. THAT’S GREAT. I’M PUSHING THE FINAL MILES ON MY CAR. AUTO WEEK HAS INSPIRED ME TO CHECK THEM OUT. RUNNING ON FUMES. IT REALLY IS.
