    I had a very pleasant experience in purchasing my car. Everyone at the dealership was very accommodating and worked very hard to offer me what I wanted.... They also seemed like honest individuals who are interested in offering their clients the best possible service.

    Best car buying experience I???ve ever had. Easy to find a vehicle. Response time to my inquiry was efficient. Wait time from start to finish including... trade evaluation and cleaning car and signing documents was 2 hours.

    i have gotten multiply cars from them when they were highline imports and this time I purchased a car for my son and was promised a loyalty discount but... instead of them honoring it they jacked up the price by $100 two claim they discounted it $200 for referral. I guess I should not be mad but I believe in being a person of my word

    We are happy with our purchase from Preferred Imports. The guys and girls there were very pleasant in helping us purchase this vehicle, and not pushy... at all. We had a few details that needed to be cleared up at signing, which were reasonably and promptly taken care of, to help make our purchase as easy as possible.
