Over the course of 2 or 3 visits, the sales person,
, guided us through the process of examining and test-driving various configurations of the Prius.
asked a lot of questions and guided us to several vehicles that he thought might meet my wife's requirements.
also served as a bit of a teacher and helped us learn what we needed to know about hybrids.
,
's manager, served as back-up and facilitator to help us all keep the process moving when we got stuck. But he did NOT apply pressure or push. He also "did he deal" when it was time to finalize a price and complete the sale. MDR
came highly recommended to me (in person) by a highly-rated Angie's List vendor,
Automotive in
-- in particular,
(at
) said MDR
was honest and trustworthy and I would be treated fairly with no pressur. He was right! The bottom line: We got a perfect car for my wife at a great price and feel like we made a couple of new friends at MDR
(
&
). In fact,
just called to remind us to schedule the first of our two years of free maintenance visits. Like I said in the summary: These are good people and you can trust them. And that's rare in the world of auto dealers!

We purchased a 2007 car from
. They tried sneeking in a $3500. extended warranty in the contract which they never mentioned. We declined the $3500. warranty. 12 days after purchased, the car needed $2000. work done on it. They refused to do "ANYTHING" about this, they told us "We offered you a $3500. warranty & you turned it down so you are on your own"....
They are rude, unprofessional, & they lie to your face.
Stay away from these typical used car salesman, no ethics at all.
As a former VietNam Veteran, I warn all Veterans to avoid
Auto Sales.

Have to admit, this is a solid dealership when it comes to purchasing a vehicle. Make sure you deal with
Holly Ridge Auto Sales Provider Name Locked
and Guy though -- they will work to get you the deal that you want/need. Let's face it, you are going to go through a haggling process when purchasing a vehicle. They are going to give you a price, you have yours, and you will ultimately meet somewhere in the middle. But the difference here? There was absolutely NO PRESSURE. I was expecting, "come on, sign the paperwork" or "you'd better not let this deal go" comments during the process, but that didn't happen. Actually, I was the one saying those comments to myself and not

! In addition, they have quality vehicles at a decent price. Overall, a fantastic buying experience. Try them out -- they will work with you and your trade, unlike other dealerships on the island.

Oh my, where do I start? After contacting the internet department for help (which wasn't bad), I decided to go and see what they had on their lot, in addition to what I had seen online. After being greeted by a few different people, they finally figured out that
Holly Ridge Auto Sales Provider Name Locked
(the internet manager) wasn't in. No big deal - so they handed me off to another salesman. We found another truck I liked, but it certainly wasn't exactly what I was looking for. But that's ok, no test drive because we were in a hurry and said that we would return the following morning. The salesman tried to keep us on the lot by paying for our movie tickets for the following evening -- sorry, already had a date planned. Upon return the following morning, we were quickly greeted by TJ...and not

. He's a very nice guy and went over and above to let us see who was on their lots. It's not going too bad so far because we now have a list of vehicles that we want to know the price of. Plus, we got the opportunity to drive the truck we wanted. Wrong answer -- EVERY vehicle was quoted at the inflated retail price. So, we're now back to square one with the vehicle we originally looked at. First of all, the 'boss' quoted the original price and not the online price...a difference of a mere $2.5K. Did he not know the price that was being advertised online? Why did he not know what the price that was on his own vehicle that he was selling? Then, he proceeds to let me know that I would need to put down $4-5K and they would give me $100-$300 (yes, I wrote that right) for a Dodge Ram 1500. The scrap metal alone would have been worth more than that. Sure, there was some work to be done on it, but the floor mats were worth $100! Then, all this would come together for a tidy little monthly payment between $470-$510 per month...for a 2008 vehicle...with a 1K mile warranty...and over 100K miles.

...no. Then, the 'boss' continues to drill me regarding my other deal at the other dealership and interjects a false accusation that the truck was on Craigslist. Want to really make a customer upset? Accuse him/her with a false accusation. Why was he so concerned about the other deal and did not care about selling his own vehicle? What does he do with that info? He uses that deal to try and tell me that he can get me into a vehicle based upon my budget, but the cars he then showed me would be right at the top of my budget and older than the one I was trading in! In other words, he was still absolutely giving peanuts for my trade and unwilling to come down off of his price whatsoever. I don't think so. Luckily, I went back to

Ford and got 20X (yes, you read that right) what the Chrysler boss offered me for my trade-in for a SUV that had half the miles, much better condition at only a couple thousand more dollars. I'll gladly pay for service, quality and a deal I feel is good...and evidently, no one at this dealership was willing to work with me for my money. Glad I went elsewhere!!! Oh, and by the way, I never even laid eyes on

Took my 2002

Altima to
Holly Ridge Auto Sales Provider Name Locked
for a coolent leak and hard starting. After two days they called and said I had a BLOWN HEAD GASKET, coolent on all four cylinders, oil inside the No. 1 Spark Plug, bad left wheel bearing. Declined the service and took the car to another shop and found out the HEAD GASKET was NOT blown, no coolent on the cylinders, the oil was from valve gasket leaking. The car only needed new spark plugs and a new valve gasket. Also had a new water pump installed and wheel bearings replaced for a grand total of 678.00 dollors.

They were absolutely fantastic. They are so superior, pleasant, if something happened they fix it right away. They're pleasant to women. I won't take my car anyplace else to do service. I would use them again in the future.

I can't say how pleased I am with
Holly Ridge Auto Sales Provider Name Locked
and my consultant
Holly Ridge Auto Sales Provider Name Locked
. Shopping for cars is one of the most dreaded duties in my life. I was not looking forward to doing it again. On a client's recommendation, I called
Holly Ridge Auto Sales Provider Name Locked
, told them what I was looking for, how much I wanted to pay for the car and told them that if they can find the car at the price I want, they would have my business.
Holly Ridge Auto Sales Provider Name Locked
came though with flying colors. I was a skeptic and now I'm a convert. This is how car shopping is meant to be done. They found exactly what I was looking for (and I had had little luck with dealerships prior to calling her). She got an extremely competitive price and took care of the financing paperwork, the DMV paperwork and took delivery of the car, checked it out and called me when they had it in hand.
On top of all that, they donate a portion of their profit to the charity of my choice.
In all seriousness, they made purchasing a car a pleasant experience. I will use them again and recommend them to my friends.
They will find both new and used cars in anything from luxury to high performance to compact and hybrid in any brand.
Highly recommended.

As much as I would like to say do your homework and be prepared, I'm not sure it will work with this place. My step-daughter goes in to buy a pre-cert car from a buyers
Holly Ridge Auto Sales Provider Name Locked
program through work. Price is set (supposedly). She's a first time buyer, college grad. During a 5-hour exchange to get this car, we have to haggle over the price of the car, the 'pre-cert fee', other fees, taxes, interest rate, amount to finance, etc etc etc. We had to go thru a dog and pony show of saleswomen to manager, back and forth, back and forth. You feel like a hostage during this entire time. As soon as you say no or indicate you are leaving, more interactions with managers, promises to make it work and 'fit our budget'. You are charged a flat rate pre-cert fee on all cars. Ours was 9% of car price. Cars.comsays I should of paid anywhere from 2-8%. The car has a broken widowshield. They almost tried to get us to walk out without the 'We Owe You' paper to replace the windowshield. Wonder why the 150 point inspection for pre-cert did not catch a broken windshield??? They actually wanted to sell a car with a broken windshield and have me pay for that on top of the price of the car. I actually thought I had the pre-cert fee removed during our 'negotiation' but then it shows up in the contract. Of course, the contract was done with a different finance manager since the one I made the agreement with was busy with someone else and this guy couldn't honor his agreement. Seriously, one employee cannot honor another employees agreement. So I'm back at square one, four and half hours into this process and closing time is 30 minutes away. Can you see how this all works. There are other things to mention but I can take up this entire page of the experience. Like I said, do your homework on everything, be prepared to get up and walk out if you are not getting what you want and finally inspect the car yourself since the pre-cert process seems to be mal-functioning. Finally, the car payment booklet arrives in the mail and the interest rate is 0.1% higher then discussed and the monthly payment is $0.98 higher.

We also had a leak from our tanks in two of our 3 commodes, they came out to fix it right away, and repainted the baseboard that was discolored from the water leak. They also sent a company representative out to check to make sure the home was put together well, and have called to make sure we have no other problems.9
