    Amazing experience... Ray and his team ABOVE & BEYOND going the extra mile to help my wife and 3 kids find the car of our dreams, head and shoulders above... the other SUV we were driving. I've never loved any car so much and both my wife and I agree it is definitely an investment* every other car I've owned I've had buyers remorse, but this experience has been much different To start, it was SO REFRESHING to work with people that actually care. Raymond, Aubry and Norah are simply the best car people I've ever worked with in my life. Never felt high pressure or weird like it always does at literally every place you'll ever shop for a car. I hardly ever leave reviews so it says a lot for me to take the time to let you know how special this group of people are and how much they really will help you get the car you need while genuinely helping at the highest level of service. One of my favorite memories of the test drive with Ray was when he didn't try to sell me anything about the features like most car guys would do, he just told me the reason WHY I would want to own a car like this. LOVE your family? and you will drive a Subaru. And the more I read and educated myself I realized he was right - they are hands down the safest cars, designed for taking a crash at the highest level, and engineered with every detail thought of with careful awareness to yet again creating a great experience for my entire family. Wife is happy. The kids are SO HAPPY. I will never go back to another brand of car or car lot again! I'm in the process of rebuilding my credit after building several businesses over the last decade, so even with "fair" scores their team helped us qualify for a 2020 Ascent. My neighbor doctor friend in my neighborhood owns a new Subaru Ascent as well and absolutely loves it! So I became curious, and decided to leave my past life of frustration with the other car. In the first month of owning this beauty - I actually feel so safe and all the safety perks are so amazing ( lane assist helps me never drive off the road, front sensors keep me from ever rear ending someone again, the rear camera is simply amazing with steering guidance to perfectly swing those parallel park challenges, etc. etc) Pretty much everything that totally upset me with my other SUV I felt like the people at Subaru sat down and masterminded quite honestly one of the most brilliant vehicles I have had the privilege of driving. We have now taken the kids road tripping to California, camping on the beaches in northern San Diego (Encinitas, Cardiff by the Sea) and also to visit family in Colorado. The result has been life-changing, and we not only LOVE this car so much but it has turned our car time into some really great memories. The kids love all the usb chargers for their tablets and games! I love hearing everyone "oooo" and "ahhhhh" when seeing a full moon or stars out the huge sun roof. When you are driving this vehicle, you just feel like " I'm heading down the right road in life... this is awesome " Do yourself a favor, give these folks a call and drive the car you deserve that will take your life to the next level!

    My experience at Garcia Subaru North was really excellent! I began contact while still in Honolulu, Hawaii before moving to Albuquerque. Raymond Montes... expertly guided me through the process of purchasing a beautiful 2019 Subaru Crosstrek in Cool Gray Khaki. I couldn't ask for better expertise, professionalism, and friendliness to a new arrival in Albuquerque. I drove home in my dream car and thank Ray Montes and Torie Peralta for making that happen. Thank you too Ray for the beautiful bouquet of sunflowers!

    When it was time to trade in our 255K miles Outback, we knew we were in good hands with Ray Montes and the entire Garcia Subaru team including a consult... with the service team! Ray was a delight to work with and his delivery of the latest features in a NEW Outback was the perfect combination of fun and informative. And with a few months of driving it, we could not be more happy. Hands down THE best car buying experience ever! Thank you Ray! CJ & Kim

    This is my second car I have purchased through the Garcia dealerships. Everyone I dealt with was friendly, responsive and extremely flexible. I live in... Austin, TX so they had my car brought out to me which was awesome. Ray went above and beyond and made sure that I had all the information and also added in a goodie bag for my dog. Would highly recommend any of the Garcia dealerships.

    Ray Montes is not only a great salesman but also a great person who takes the time to get to know you as a person while being very professional. He took... extra time on several occasions to explain the functions of my new car. No pressure!! Great follow- up even after the sale.

    I texted Raymond saying I was in the market for a new car, Raymond himself responded to my text in about 3 minutes! Loved that! He had a black Subaru ON... THE LOT! We made an appointment that same morning & by 5 pm I drove away in my new Subaru! Raymond gave me his undivided attention & got it done!
