We could not be happiest with our new vehicle and the wonderful experience we had at Tarheel Auto Sales! Amy and Larry were helpful and efficient! Tarheel Auto Sales made an experience we usually dread into a short and easy experience!

The Tarheel Family is awesome. I bought my Nissan Rouge there several month ago. They have been so awesome both when I bought the vehicle and in months following with my questions, even helping me hook up my new phone. I would recommend them to anyone and would definitely buy from them again. They are definitely family oriented and are not a pressure selling business.

We haven’t bought a vehicle in several years and have been looking for a long time for just the right truck. Thank you for listening to what we wanted and needed. All the little issues on the truck were quickly resolved and we are so pleased with the service we received. I will be recommending your company to anyone I know looking for a vehicle. Thank you!

Tarheel Auto Sales is the place to buy a used vehicle of any type. I recently completed my third vehicle purchase from Tarheel and have been very happy every time. The vehicles are carefully selected and evaluated, and they offer great quality at a great price. On top of that, if they don't have what you want on the lot, they will find it for you! This is a family business that treats everyone like family. They have built their reputation for honesty and integrity one sale at a time for over 40 years. If you need a vehicle, go talk to the Tarheel "family"!

I referred an elderly friend with special needs to Tarheel Motors because they were friends of a friend. Could not have been more pleased with this decision. From the first phone call she felt confident they had her best interest at heart. They found a car that met all her needs within 2 days, and she was driving off the lot with a smile on her face. They handled all the details regarding paperwork, tag, and rental car return for her. This experience proves that Tarheel Motor’s care about their customers. A huge thanks for the care and concern extended to my close friend.

I just purchased a Nissan Rogue from TarHeel Auto. I have never been treated with such care and answered every question I had. So patient, letting me drive several cars as a trial run. James and Amy treated me like I was family and I was so comfortable in dealing with them. My daughter and son has traded with them several times and urged me to try them. I am so glad I did. I recommend their services to anyone. James will search inventory of cars if you are looking for a special model, year or color. Thank you TarHeel for your services!


03-05-2021 I've purchased a number of vehicles new and used over the years. I recently purchased a vehicle from Tarheel Auto and it was the best experience I've ever had buying a car. I did not feel the need to haggle over price because the car was fairly priced. They had the car thoroughly checked, replaced brake pads, had the oil changed, car inspected, replaced the antenna, had the bumpers painted and took care of getting the car to the dealership to fix an outstanding recall. I can't imagine anything else I could have asked for. Amy helped me through the process from start to finish. They will be my first stop the next time I am in the market for a car. I highly recommend you look here when you are car shopping.

Tarheel Auto had what I was looking for. They are such professional folks who treated me like family. James and Amy were wonderful in the process of purchasing my truck. If I'm ever in the market in the future they will be my first call. Thanks guys !!!

This is the third car our family has purchased from Tarheel Motors. I just explained what I was looking for and James had several ready for me to look at. He and the staff were truly professional and helpful. I definitely would recommend Tarheel Motors for your next purchase. Can not say enough good things about James and my car buying experience. He had all my paperwork ready when I came to pickup my car and explained all the details of the purchase. I love, love, love my little Honda FIT.


I just purchased a car fromTarheel about a week ago. I traveled to Locust only to look and brought home a new car. Sean Brown assisted me and I could not have asked for anyone more professional. A fair trade was offered for my unit and he took the application right there for the financing that I needed. I got immediate approval. In 2 .5 hours I drove the car, cleaned out mine and they washed and fueled the 2017 Hyundai Santa fe sport. Very, very nice experience. I highly recommend checking their inventory if you are looking for a used car with low mileage.

We just purchased our 11th vehicle from Tarheel and are once again pleased with our purchase!! James, Amy, Dennis and Larry are the best! They are all so helpful and make car buying so easy. They REALLY DO treat you like family. They stand behind their cars and truly want their customers to be happy. We always refer people to go by and check them out when someone tells us they are car shopping. Thank you guys for all the years of service and advice!!


James and Amy were both great! They both worked with me and got me into a nice car within days. Any time I need a car, I will definitely be going back. They took their time and made sure I got into a vehicle that was right for me. I went in with a certain car in mind and I left with that car. Before I left, they said if I had any problems to feel free to come back and they would do their best to help. 5/5 stars across the board.


James and his family at Tarheel are very welcoming and made my car shopping/buying experience painless. They are friendly, polite and very helpful. I will not be buying a car anywhere else. Would recommend this company a hundred times over and would give them six stars if I could.


A wonderful car buying experience. Great selection of cars with the one I exactly wanted at a great price. Kind enough to pick me up in Charlotte. Paperwork was completed in 30 minutes and I was on my way. What else could you ask for.


A great place to buy a car. Terrific! Very organized, informative, and friendly. Look no more... this is the place!
