    Everyone at Sunshine was great to work with! Nick Gast was my sales person and he was professional, efficient and knowledgeable. The inventory was good... and the car buying process was pleasant. No pressure or long waits dealing with the back office!

    Zach stayed after closing time, took us to their detail shop to test a new CPO artival, and he was courteous and helpful. Zach answered several questions... and he offered several options. He was unable to meet our price in our first visit, but we hope to do business with him soon.

    I have purchased from Sunshine Toyota for about 10 years now and each time I get the urge to move into something newer, Sunshine is where I go. All of... the employees are friendly, courteous and it is a no-pressure operation. I sometimes just go in to have a cup of coffee and visit. My favorite sales person is Randy Dibiaggio. He doesn't pressure me or my wife when we come in to shop. He knows what we like and will recommend what best meets our needs. From the start of the sale to the final delivery, Randy is the best.

    My husband and I worked with Aaron, he was efficient and polite. My husband was dreading the process, Aaron didn't waste time and made it happen promptly... and efficiently. Aimee was also very friendly and efficient, they were a great team. We appreciate how easy it was, we were very satisfied.

    The entire purchase was top notch, starting with Justin and ending with the "Tech" guy once our CPO 4Runner purchase was complete. I can't use the word... enjoyable when it comes to a vehicle purchase as there is just always some sort of stress involved, but I will say that this vehicle purchase was the least painful of any other car buying experience I can remember. I am sorry I don't have all the names of the folks that helped us out. We will definitely travel to Sunshine when it's time to buy our next vehicle.
