This is a follow-up to a review I posted approximately a yr. ago, back in 2016. At the time of our purchase of a Toyota RAV4, it appeared we got a tremendous... deal. One year and approximately 10,000/11,000 miles later, I can say we did. We dealt with a gentleman named Anthony, and he was a pleasure to deal with. He worked well with us, and of course I have to give credit to the company, who worked nicely with us as well. Unfortunately, it’s a bad news, good news situation. We stopped in at Pleasant Valley Motors around September/October, 2016 to update Anthony on our total satisfaction with the vehicle, only to find he was longer going to be there…he was leaving. The good news is he is with the dealership across the street. Wheeeew! I checked several sources of reviews since he’s been there, and it appears that people are having a good experience with him/the dealership. Over the years my wife and I have only come across a few auto sales people who were down-to-earth, and actually seemed to care about our purchase, from our perspective, as a customer. Anthony was one of those, and we will definitely give him another opportunity when we are in the market for our next vehicle.
Only time will tell for certain if the vehicle and deal we received on a used vehicle is as good as it appears, but I must say the initial experience has... actually been a painless one, maybe even a pleasant one. Anthony at Pleasant Valley Motors was a pleasure to deal with, answering any and all questions I asked of him, and getting back to me in a timely fashion. He appears to be a down to earth guy, and though he has a job to perform, he very much went out of his way for us. He and the dealership were very fair in their dealings with us, both with price and patience. The way we’ve shopped for vehicles in recent years is we have compiled a very small list of dealerships that we feel comfortable with and trust (if that’s not too strong of a word), and that’s who we look to first when we purchase a vehicle. That approach has worked well for us, and at this point in time, with what we’ve experienced thus far with Pleasant Valley Motors and Anthony, we will definitely add them to our list for any future vehicles we may consider purchasing.
