    This is my 6th car from Wantagh Mazda and the reason I come back is the great sales and service I receive. We are warmly greeted when we walk in the door.... In this case our salesman was busy so they let us test drive the car by ourselves. I had the CX 5 and was interested in the CX9. They gave me figures for a 36 month lease. However they did not force me into anything as I told them I would make my decision the next day. I did decide the deal was a good one for me.

    Victor, Joe and Kenny were very helpful in helping me decide what vehicle to purchase and how to finance it. They let me test drive the car for a long... time so I could be confident about what I was buying. There was no pressure and it was a very good experience. I would highly recommend this Madza dealership.

    My friend told me about the car he leased and his experience with the salesman and referred me to David. David was all my friend said he was. He gave me... no pressure whatsoever and was friendly without that annoying (phony) cheerful enthusiasm that most salesman give you. David helped me identify the car that best suited my needs, told me what the car had and didn't have, and didn't give me grief when I asked for a little extra. And the deal he gave me was great. Also, the sales manager, Phil, was also a pleasure to deal with - he got involved when we asked David to give us a little extra. This was the best car buying experience I ever had and I would offer an unqualified recommendation of David and Wantagh Mazda to anyone looking for a car. Incidentally, David promised he would do something for the friend who referred me to him - even though he hadn't promised my friend anything for the referral. David is a totally class act. P.S: I've only had the car - a CX-5 - a few weeks, but it has been everything my wife and I hoped it would be.

    I went to Wantagh Mazda, having already researched the exact vehicle I was looking for. I just wanted to test drive it. I was approached by David Chiari,... who was very helpful and had the vehicle ready for me to test drive, literally within minutes. David treated me with courtesy and respect, from the get go. I can tell you from past experience, that as a woman shopping for a car, this is not always the case. There was no pressure, no double talk, no BS. I love my new CX-9! I will definitely continue to do business with this dealership as well as recommend this dealership to my friends and family.
