"
was incredibly responsive to all communication. He was quick to share with me all vehicle documents (emailed them to me immediately), worked" with me on pricing, and when I took the car to the Lexus dealership for a check over, I showed him the few repairs that were needed...requested Lexus parts be used and he agreed to it all and performed both repairs immediately. Mind you, I hadn't even put any money down at this point.
emailed the Sales agreement to me and I was on my way with check in hand to purchase. Unfortunately, I had to pull the transaction at the last minute.
was nothing but professional and incredibly understanding to my situation. I will absolutely return to
when I resume my car
and look forward to working with
again.

"I initially purchased a sedan, but it sat a little too low so I traded it in for an SUV a couple days later. When I returned it, the salesman gave a snarky remark" and he thought he was being funny but it was very unprofessional.

Sounds like your biggest problem will be narrowing your list to a limited number of models, and deciding what brand names you are willing to consider to narrow the field.

You can search for websites blogging complaints for each model you are considering to see how they rate with users, and you can also go to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website at     www.nhtsa.gov     to see how many recalls there have been on a specific model and year.

Most dealers these days have websites with their listed prices for new and used cars that you can browse to get an idea of available listed prices.

I would also recommend that you check out the used car values (free) for models you might be interested in on    www.edmunds.com    and on Kelley Blue Book  -  www.kbb.com

Those 2 sources will give you a lot of negotiating power, because they list what the dealer pays the manufacturer on new cars, shows what people have been paying for each vehicle model and model year, and shows used valuations also. There are undoubtedly other such sources also - these are just the ones I have used and seem to be the best known.

Car Dealership reviews in Fort Walton Beach

It went very very well. They are very thorough and I was happy with the service. My salesman called me two weeks after I bought it to see if there were any problems or if there was anything he could do for me. He checked back with me again about six weeks after that to see if he could answer any questions, etc. Also, he has sent me a Christmas card the last two years. I would definitely go back there and buy another new truck.

When I was ready to buy a car I told the salesman I decided not to buy a Flex. He showed me the Explorer and everything about it. When we picked the car up, he was sure that my wife was there so she could see how everything worked. He set my Bluetooth Sirius Music. Filled the car with gas. we've been pleased with the service.

This guy sold my grandson a car that was 16 years old and had lots wrong with it. He fast-talked my grandson when questions were asked. For example, what my grandson asked about the check engine light, he was told that it was on because it was winter time, and that it would go off when the weather warmed up (B.S.). When my grandson asked about the non-working air conditioner, he was told that it only needed a little Freon added (B.S.). Later, when my grandson tried to add Freon, he found that the compressor was bad, a $500+ repair. The whole car was a complete disaster. The rear window wiper was broken beyond repair. He told my grandson that this car was great in the snow because of the 4-wheel drive. It turned out that the car was just a gas-guzzler. In-town driving was a disaster on gas usage. Stay away from this guy. He is a con artist and he takes advantage of people who don't know anything about cars. He's full of double-talk and promises. He sure dumped on my grandson. Stay away from him, as he is a real fast-talker.

It's a very friendly company. It's all first name basis. I'm dickering for a new car now. I am hoping to have it by Christmas. They don't have a body shop, that's the only inconvenience. They do service their cars as far as oil change and things like that and any small repairs.

It was pretty close, it wasn't far to drive. we've been there a couple of times now as far as leased cars are concerned. The dealership is nice and friendly. It's my wife's choice, I stay out of it. She found the dealership quite friendly and comfortable and she was comfortable going there. She was confident that the salesperson was competent. So, she's been going there, this is our 2nd lease so about 6 years.
On the last lease, I would have tried to push the numbers down a bit. I think she had gained a confidence in the dealership and didn't try to push them down as much as I would have.
The service is quite fast and on time.
