About Us

Tired of dealing with traditional car dealers?  At Petrol Auto Sales we strive to give you the anti- car dealer experience.  Millions of people every year get frustrated dealing with traditional car dealership games and negotiation.  We try and price every vehicle fairly from the get-go, and serve all our customers equally, regardless of credit or financial situation.

We pride ourselves in our ability to get nearly anyone financed.

Interested in a new car?  Maybe you’ve found the perfect used car, but it’s at another dealership?  Contact us and let us broker your next car deal.  We’ll deal with the other dealership, save you money, and more importantly save you time, stress, and headache.  We do all the haggling so all you do is walk in and drive away!

Our slogan is “People are the most important part of our business.” That’s not just something we say, there’s a reason behind it. Our owner has been in the car business in the Sacramento area for over 14 years, starting as a lot porter and detailer, eventually working his way up through the sales department to become a General Sales Manager in 2013.

“Over the years I’ve seen thousands upon thousands of cars come and go. There will always be more, but one thing we can’t replace is our people.” Ryan is referring to both employees as well as clients. “Having worked for several different large dealerships I’ve seen people get treated right, and I’ve seen people taken for granted. Customers don’t grow on trees and it’s important to appreciate the ones who are kind enough to give you the opportunity to do business with them. When we treat people right we earn the opportunity to potentially do business with them in the future. If we don’t, we’ll never see them again.”

At Petrol Auto Sales we realize our business can only grow with the growing affection of our clients. We hope you’ll give us the opportunity to show you what we mean. We strive to do business with total transparency, selling a quality product, and being up front about our pricing, financing, and optional extras.
