We can not say enough good things about this dealership. I emailed them via their website, and within minutes the General Sales Manager reached out to me to handle the negotiations. They gave us exactly what we wanted for our trade, a great price on the car we purchased, and treated us like royalty. Seriously one of the best and easiest car buying experiences we’ve ever had. I would highly recommend this store. Fatih was incredibly patient and respectful as we decided which model we wanted to purchase, and Dan was great with the negotiations. Thank you Jason Pierce and team!
