South Coast Autos - A Reliable Used Car Dealer
Showroom quality pre-owned cars at warehouse prices! At South Coast Autos (#SCAutosTX) we strive to find you the best used cars for sale on the market, and offer them at the most competitive prices.
Owner, Michael Kowalski was a General Motors (GM) certified Lead Automotive Technician for 23 years. He is a quality-driven mechanic and expects excellence from every member of the South Coast Autos Team.
Trust is his #1 priority. He provides superior customer service by providing honest evaluations of every car, truck, SUV and van in his inventory. As a mechanic, he is highly qualified to tell it like it is rather than rely on a drafted beefed-up salesman’s pitch you often find those lacking in automobile mechanical knowledge tend to do.
When new pre-owned automobiles are brought in to be added to his used car dealership inventory, each vehicle is given a 117 point inspection. It goes far beyond the old kick the tires and slap a price on it approach. Michael knows from experience what “normal” wear and tear looks like under the hood and what “modifications” (if any) are done well and are acceptable. While most mechanics only have time to drive a car around the block to look and listen for unforeseen knocks and rattles, Michael averages 25-50 miles. He drives it home, goes to the grocery store, and sometimes even finds time to hitch a boat to a qualifying work truck and goes fishing on Lake Conroe on a Sunday afternoon. Real world test drives tell much more about an automobile’s true condition.
Once past this phase, the vehicle is detailed and ready for pictures. In our well lit photo booth, Michael’s fellow car enthusiast, Joe Domingez, will take more than 30 high definition pictures inside and out of the vehicle.
Before used autos for sale are listed, research is done to find out what types of options the car includes and what the original value of those automobile options were when the car was originally purchased new too. South Coast Autos prides itself on the fact that the inventory found in our warehouse (yes, his preowned cars are stored indoors and out of the weather) has the best vehicle history report (CARFAX included on every used truck, SUV, car and Van), are considered in “good” or better condition when put against NADA values, and priced low enough that banks are very interested in providing car financing for, within a 50 mile radius of Houston, TX. Not many Texas used car dealers can boast having 90% or better in inventory that live up to those kind of strict standards.

He will also assist and encourage you to get a 3rd party professional opinion from another mechanic of your choice to ease any remaining doubts his used cars are really is as good as they look online.

We wannabe like Car and Driver and Motor Trend and give you frank, yet enthusiastic consumer opinions on the who’s who of the midsize luxury sedans (BMW 3-series), great American muscle cars (like a Ford Shelby Mustang) and sporty roadsters (like an Audi TT). We love to compare / debate off-road capabilities of the various SUV models (lifted Jeeps included), and towing capacities of Ford F series against Dodge Ram work trucks. We know your car means more to you than just a convenient way to commute to and from work 5-6-7 days a week. So let’s break up the grind and share favorites!
