    I stopped into the dealership on Thursday, short notice. Wanted to see the XLE Sienna. Danny was prompt, attentive. He had the vehicle ready when we... stopped into the dealership. We came back to the dealership on Saturday morning to complete the deal. Deal was fair. We are happy. Don't hesitate to ask for Danny.

    Loved working with Alan Makabi. He explained everything plainly, answered any questions, was comfortable communicating via text or email, and was pleasant... and personable. His experience shows. Everything went quickly and smoothly, and even with the intervening holiday, I drove off the lot with my new red car in just a few days! Curt in Finance was awesome and didn't pressure me into adding products I won't need. Buying my car was a fun experience! C

    I have always heard about how great the vehicle buying experience is at Toyota of CR and I was not disappointed. Alan did an excellent job working with... me. He went above and beyond to find me exactly what I was looking for and at the right price. Alan was great about listening to what I wanted and incorporating the ideas I had about the look of the 4Runner and he turned them into reality. I couldn't be happier. Phil was also very helpful during the process, explaining everything to know about the vehicle and he even paired my phone so it would be ready to roll as soon as I jumped in. Everything was all wrapped up in a final meeting with Tiffany who did a Fantastic job of explaining the warranties, financing and Toyota services provided in a clear and understandable manner. She was excellent. I can say without question my experience at Toyota has been the best vehicle buying experience I have ever had. Thank you CR Toyota

    I have wanted a Highlander for quite a few years now and had previously spoke with Alan but was not able to make it work at that time. I started looking... again and found the perfect Highlander for me at Cedar Rapids Toyota and was lucky enough to get Alan Makabi to help us. He was great to work with and very knowledgeable on the vehicle! Went above and beyond to make sure the vehicle was perfect when we picked it up! Wendy in finance was awesome to work with also! Overall best vehicle buying experience I've ever had!!
