    While car shopping can be a daunting task, Big John Was a treasure to work with. Friendly doesnt even beging to describe him. Above and beyond is his... minimum. This has been my favorite car buying experience ever. If you shop here, ask for Big John Hodges!

    I have dealing with this sorry dealership for over 5 months now. I talked with JAY WEBB about and item that was promised to us. JAY WEBB was RUDE and so... unprofessional!!!! He is the district manager and he hung up on us when we called him. What kind of business is this???? Run away don't ever do business with these people if you know what is good for you. I wish I could give it 0 stars I would. Sorry people working at sorry dealership!!!!

    Andre was awesome! I came in, told him what type of vehicle I was looking for, what kind of down payment I had and he and Mike in finance made it happen!... I drove off the lot a couple hours later with the vehicle I wanted and the payment I could afford! Andre and Mike made the process very quick and easy! Thanks guys!

    They were very helpful when it came to finding the perfect car to meet our needs financially! They were very different from any of the other dealerships... we went to previously. I highly suggest budget being your first stop!
