About Us

We are San Diego’s trusted family-owned used car dealer

After more than 90 years in the automotive industry, the Mossy family’s business longevity is a clear sign of their willingness to embrace an ever-evolving market as well as their attentiveness to the needs of customers. In 1921, family patriarch Wiley Mossy began selling cars in with the goal of earning enough to open his own dealership.

As the automotive industry experienced growing pains such as manufacturer strikes, wartime business decrease, and wage inflation, Wiley successfully steered the business towards prosperity, growing it – and his family – along the way. Throughout the years, Wiley had the pleasure of introducing his sons and grandsons to the family business while expanding the company.

Buy & Sell The EzFast Way

The implementation of the Mossy Auto Group’s sales tenets focusing on the customer experience dates back to the 1940’s when Wiley introduced a “fair market pricing” philosophy in response to the automobile industry’s high demand but low product availability. That practice evolved into the “Market Based Price” philosophy used at the Mossy Auto Exchange today.

The positive response bolstered both their business and reputation among customers and other successful industry professionals. The group continued to grow in San Diego and the family’s processes to enhance retail performance were further refined.

In San Diego the Mossy family of dealerships includes: Nissan, Toyota, Ford, Volkswagen, Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Honda, Mitsubishi, and Infiniti.

In 2018 the Mossy Auto Exchange was opened in Pacific Beach with the philosophy of making car buying and selling more open, faster, and relaxed. “Buy & Sell the EzFast Way” is more than a slogan; it is a commitment to our customers that we will make every deal easy and enjoyable. Because buying or selling a car should not be stressful, it should be fun.

You know what you want better than we do. Our goal is to create an open, relaxed and transparent process where you are in control. Every vehicle in our inventory has a market based price so there is no need to haggle, you are getting the best deal possible.

I had a great experience buying a car here yesterday. I came in a couple times within a couple weeks to find the best deal for the specific car I wanted. They were able to work with my budget, & showed me all the options with my down payment/monthly budget/credit score, etc. Financing across the street took a couple hours, but they were friendly & professional too.

Huge shout out to Virgil for making this all happen for me! He was extremely kind & helpful & responsive, & I so appreciate it for my first official car buy as a young female in this wild market currently. Thank you Virgil!!!

Yesterday evening I had the pleasure of working with Skylar!

A little background on my situation: I had a 2016 chevy cruze which had damage to the entire front of the car and I desperately needed to get out and into something new ( a 2021 ford!!!). I had no hope but let me tell you SKYLAR is genuinely one of the greatest! Immediately when I got there he had a plan for me and was determined to do everything he could to get me what I needed & for a price I could afford AND accepting my trade in!! This is not a dealership this is a family that truly takes great care of you! Not one time did I feel rushed, or uncomfortable, everyone who works here are super friendly and very welcoming.

I 1000000% recommend all buyers whether its your first time or you may have challenges with credit go see SKYLAR at mossy auto exchange today!! You will not be disappointed!

My salesman, Amir, was outstanding to work with and made the whole process completely seamless. From start to finish, he went above and beyond! I am a retired manufacturer's representative of high-end, luxury products, so from one salesperson to another--Kudos, Amir! You know the meaning of customer service, and you are truly a natural. Believe me....it can't be faked! Everyone else I met at the dealership was warm and welcoming too. They really made me feel like a valued customer and a friend. I have to say Amir and Mossy made this car purchase the best experience ever! Not to mention, I'm over the moon ecstatic with the exceptional vehicle I bought! It's stunning, and what a thrill to drive! Thank you again to Amir, Mike, Jason, Rachael, and everyone there for a top notch experience!

Nick sold me an amazing 2018 VW Beetle. He gave me the freedom to test drive it and ask all the questions. After the detailed car wash, a full tank of gas, air in the tires, and a fresh battery in the car key.....I bought and love it. Thanks, Nick and Mossy Pacific Beach.

By far the best experience purchasing a vehicle! I say this after multiple purchases and leases over the years. We were in the market for a used car for our son and Mossy Exchange made life easy. Immaculate vehicle, exceptional service as well. Amir our sale consultant was so attentive and knowledgeable. He was so positive and handled every step of the transaction with class. Thank you Amir!!!

I went to Mossy Auto Exchange the day of the grand opening, was very impressed and surprised at how comfortable I felt at this dealership.

I wanted to stay because it was so relaxed (loved the swings!). I worked with Danny Fabian and he was very easy to deal with, no pressure at all. He showed me a very nice certified pre-owned Corolla. When it came down to numbers, he had his manager Andrew speak with me and gave me my options and now I got a new car! It was very easy!

I highly recommend this place to anybody who's looking for a great used car. I also recommend to everyone to drop by and look at the showroom!

Top notch sales service from Mike Emery. Made me very comfortable with my car buying experience and answered all my questions very professionally. Wasn’t sure what I wanted and Mike hooked me up with an awesome car. Financing team member/manager (Anita) made that process easy as well. Top notch all around and would definitely suggest friends and family come here for their next car.

I came to Mossy Auto Exchange on a whim today since I was next door getting parts for my older Tacoma truck. I have been considering selling my 2019 Tacoma in light of the current used car market but wasn't sure whether I would really be able to take advantage. I was introduced to Amir Siry and after a short discussion, quick inspection, and a little negotiation, I got a really great offer to purchase my truck! Amir worked really hard to get me the most for my truck and on top of that, he's just a down-to-earth kind of guy. Thanks for making this transaction easy and painless, Amir!

I traded in my truck last night & forgot to grab my prescription sunglasses . I drove back to the dealer after work today & was greeted with a big smile by Nick N , I told him what happened & he promptly went & recovered them for me . I had already had a great experience the day before & this just made it 100 times better. I most definitely recommend this dealership to anyone looking for their next vehicle

Just wanted to acknowledge salesman Nick Nennig of Mossy Auto Exchange. He assisted my wife and I in the purchase of a 2018 VW Beetle. Nick was a lot of fun to work with. He is very friendly, attentive, hustled for us when needed and has been very thoughtful after the sale by contacting us to see how our new purchase is working out for us. Great job Nick! Thank you Nick for an awesome car buying experience.
