    We came from Indiana and the salesman, Chris Dandino, kept in close touch and had the two cars we wanted to see all ready to go. After we made our selection... Chris helped us get the ball rolling with finance, Kevin made that a breeze and then back to Chris who had the car all filled up and ready to go. A very pleasant experience all the way around. A some of the best prices anywhere.

    I gave Yark Nissan a 5 star review, because of the passion and patience that Alex Lyell brought when dealing with me as a customer. I felt very comfortable... through the entire process and Alex made sure I was getting exactly what i wanted. He is genuinely cares about his customers and i recommend him to anyone.
