About Carousel

Rima Braden

Rima Braden

Carousel is the brainchild of Hawaii–based entrepreneur, Rima Braden, a 20 year veteran in the Pre-Owned auto sales business. Based on his stylized customer service and client retention, his business is now the state’s largest independent dealership. Specializing in highend and luxury vehicles for a savvy, value conscious clientele. To cater to his elite clients’ needs, Braden developed a unique internal program that allowed them to drive specific cars for short periods of time then exchange them for another vehicle. This groundbreaking maintenance free system presented so many unique applications he decided to expand it to all his customers. Beta tested under the name FlexLease, it’s grown into Carousel, a true alternative to traditional purchase and leasing.
