Buying a new car shouldn’t suck. And David Shapiro knew that at a young age.
With a passion for new cars and helping people, David worked in a San Rafael car dealership
learning the good, the bad, and the ugly of the industry during his college summers. He saw
firsthand how the traditional car shopping experience failed most customers. New car shoppers
would often leave the dealership feeling frustrated and pressured by the process.
Sound familiar?
All too often traditional car shopping doesn’t put the client first. At Cartelligent, we do.
David Shapiro founded Cartelligent in 2000 shortly after graduating from college at UCSB.
Cartelligent was born because he knew the key to a great car buying experience was putting the
client first.
Our team’s goal is to understand exactly what you’re looking for in a vehicle and why, so we can
better serve you. When you get in contact with a Cartelligent advisor, they will answer any
questions you have and guide you through the new car buying or leasing process.
Here is how it works.
When you come to us with an idea of what new cars you’re interested in, a Cartelligent advisor
works with you to understand your budget and needs without sacrificing your time. Your time is
valuable, we work on your schedule and handle the research, comparisons, negotiations, and
trade-ins on your behalf.
After deciding on your top makes and models, the team searches throughout California to locate
the exact car and negotiate pricing. We then present you with the best matches. If your dream
car does not exist, our team can special order you one to your exact specifications.
We then handle any trade-ins or lease returns you may have. Whether you buy or lease a new
car or not, Cartelligent can offer you a great price on your trade-in.
To finalize your new car purchase or lease, we walk you through the required paperwork step by
step. Once the car comes in, we let you know the vehicle is ready for pickup at your preferred
location (Sausalito, Menlo Park, Walnut Creek, or Irvine).

After a demonstration by a delivery specialist on how everything works, you’ll be ready to drive
away and enjoy your new car having saved significantly more time and skipped the traditional
car buying hassle.
