    Michael Yums helped me from beginning to end with the purchase of my new MX5. He and all the staff at Putnam Burlingame were helpful, efficient and fast. I know I can call him with any further questions i may have. Having had such a good experience, I would definitely tell my friends to shop there!

    My Mazda RX8 (2005 64K miles) was having typical problems for a rotary engine and would probably need a replacement engine.. Several dealers and mechanic's said they had too much work to be interested! or they felt they could not do the job justice. A rotary specialist (Beckstram Engineering, San Rafael) advised me to contact Putnam based on their reputation and as a dealer they would be able sort out any warrant issues. I'm glad I took his advice. I had the RX8 towed to Putnam where the performed a thorough diagnostic and sadly advised me that it did indeed need a new engine. Putnam told me the visible, invisible, and advisable work needed at this cars age. They promised to work with Mazda with regard to warranty issues. I told them to proceed but to let me know of unseen issues as they appeared. We worked together to set a timeline and Putnam was very accommodating. A week later the Service Advisor Mark D. (excellent follow-up and communication) called me to say the parts had arrived and the engine was out of the car. Mark advised me of what needed replacing and that as the engine was out it would be much less expensive to do them now as a single job than to do them individually. Meanwhile Michael A. the Service Manager was working as a customer advocate with Mazda who due to Michael's efforts were very accommodating. The RX8 was ready as promised, washed, new dent free, and looking great. On the drive to the North Bay, the RX8 felt like a new car, rattle free, no warning lights, and practically silent engine noise, After a careful 1,000 miles of gentle running in I'll see how it performs (Vroom, Vroom). As no review is perfect. The only problem I have is the headlining on the drivers side got a bit oily presumably with the mechanic starting stopping and revving the engine. Considering the size of the job this is understandable. So, Thanks very much Putnam Mazda, your work was Professional, Customer Centric, Mechanically Focused, and Reasonably Priced. I will definitely return for service and maintenance. Thanks, N.

    I had a '90 Honda Accord that was having endless problems and it was time for a new vehicle! I was very interested in the Mazda 3 isport sedan so I went online to receive a quote. I received one from Michael Yums at Putnam Mazda Burlingame that got me to walk into the dealership. He was very kind and pleasant that first day and showed me the Mazda 3 sedan. I never felt any pressure from Michael during my visit, he was friendly, informative, helpful and cheerful. I'm so happy that after a week and a half of my deciding what to do, can I afford this, that with my offered down payment, Michael showed me a monthly payment I could afford and agreed to for the Mazda 3! The one I wanted per the Deep Crystal Blue color was still there! I had a Mazda b3000 truck for a while years ago that I loved, and was hoping to be able to own a Mazda vehicle once again! I've had the car for 3 days now and I love and adore it! I'm so glad I had a very pleasant experience with Mazda Putnam from beginning to end when I rolled off the lot in my new ride :)

    I bought a new Mazda 3 from Gary Gottloeb at Putnam Mazda in Burlingame, and it was an altogether positive experience. Gary is personable and honest, and genuinely takes pleasure in serving his customers well. I solicited several dealer bids, and Gary's was the most competitive. He answered all of our questions, provided information in a clear manner, and did not push options or upgrades on us. The process was smooth and straightforward. After we completed the deal, Gary walked us through the car's features, and he was truly excited for us. We drove the car home and have been enjoying it immensely. I highly recommend Gary Gottloeb to anyone looking to purchase a Mazda.
