Semper Fi Motors Jacksonville NC

Anonymous said...

I found myself in need of a new (to me) car in Dec 2006 and looked at several used car dealerships in the area and wasn’t too impressed with what I saw for the price I could afford. Jacksonville, NC is the home of Camp Lejeune, the largest Marine Corps Base on the east coast, and unfortunately, some local businesses love to separate young Marines from their money.

I asked for input from friends as to where I could find a reputable dealer and was quickly pointed in the direction of Semper Fi Motors, right outside the main gate. From the moment I walked onto the lot I was treated with the utmost respect and felt very comfortable working with the owner, James Walker.

I was recently divorced and had limited funds, so I knew my options would be limited. James, a fellow retired Marine, asked what my absolute limit was and proceeded to show me what he had in inventory within that limit. We quickly found a very nice 2001 Pontiac Sunfire with low mileage that was perfect for my needs, and even though the original price was somewhat higher, he understood the bind I was in and we were able to work something out that was suitable for both of us. I drove the car off the lot that day, and he even had another employee drive my old car home for me later that evening. James did all the title and licensing work as well, so I didn’t have to take time off from work and spend all day at the local DMV.

A month or so later I went to start the car when leaving work and it didn’t turn over. I had no idea what it might have been, but I was concerned that I had bought a car with problems, so called James, who sent an employee right over to see if they could determine the problem. It turned out that I had unknowingly left an interior light on all day and it had drained the battery. Two minutes with a portable battery charger and I was on my way talk about great service!
