    I don't remember ever enjoying the car buying process before. Usually it's several trips back and forth to the sales manager to get the numbers right.... Not this time! Jim came out with the right financing rate, best price, and good trade offer the first time. Dennis in finance was professional and low pressure on the extras offered. They even had a tech, Nathan, come out and walk me through all the features in the car, which is unusual for a used car sale. I highly recommend Sunshine Toyota.
