Level of Satisfaction 3.0

Carview made it easy and secure to purchase a car from Japan and to have it shipped to the USA. Dealer Daishin Trading was excellent in every way. Carview made it very easy to correspond with the dealer regarding other questions about the car, not just to negotiate the price. Website very easy to navigate; contact via phone also excellent.
