Ellen Vega is the car buying Consultant for PLCU members and here’s what she had to say about the Autoland service:

How long have you been helping people buy cars?
I have been in the Auto business for 25 years. 24 years in the dealership world and 1 year with Autoland.

What is your favorite part of working for Autoland?

Working with members and credit unions. I have worked in the car industry for many years and now I get to use my knowledge to assist my members. I love that we can offer everything a dealership does without the hassle. Whether you’re looking for a new car, pre-owned car, want to lease or just sell us your car, we do it all!

Do you have a passion for cars?

Yes, of course. Over the past 25 years, I have seen cars evolve from simple to very complex. It is safe to say that we drive computers today.

What is a typical day like for you?

I get to work at 8am and hit the ground running. My goal is to give my members great service and work hard for them by searching our extensive dealer network for their perfect car.

What are the most popular features buyers are looking for today?

Along with reliability and great gas mileage, members love today’s technology features like, parking assist, blind spot monitoring, back up camera, Apple Connect and much more. When it comes to protecting a vehicle, 3M Sealants, Lojack and Paintless Dent Removal are amongst the most popular.

Anything you'd like to tell members about Autoland they might not know?

Coming from the dealership world, I know that the process can be long and daunting to a customer. It was so refreshing coming to work for Autoland. Our goal is to make members happy by saving them time and frustration. We do all the work for you and have your new car delivered right to your Point Loma Credit Union branch.
