Smooth Sailing with Sam, Chris and Thijs at the Autobarn

I was interested a pre-owned Acura that the Autobarn had for sale. I had discussed the car with one of the sales managers, Jonathan, on the phone the day before, and had done my research. I called the morning of our visit and spoke to Sam to arrange a test drive. When we arrived, our salesman Sam was waiting for us, and the car was prepped for our test drive. The car was as described on their website - no surprises. We decided to purchase the car. The whole process of negotiating a sales price and valuing our trade was really easy and smooth. We never felt the pressure that is common at car dealers. Their finance person Chris got us a really good rate on our loan, even making calls to people he knows at the various local banks. We are very happy with our experience at the Autobarn.
I worked with Jan from Carvana- she was able to explain to me the process, make sure I was comfortable with where it was at, was able to be reached and kept communication open. The pick up process went smoothly and I was able to sell my car without any glitches.
Walked in one day after previously looking at a new car in the lot for my wife. Within 10 minutes after talking to John Vanik and Tim Duda I received and excellent lease deal on a new Rouge Sport that I could live with.They gave me a rock bottom deal, much better than I had expected. A few days later I came back to lease the vehicle. They also gave me a great price on the paint protection package.
They were very courteous and helpful. I would recommend them and the dealership.
I was thoroughly satisfied with the way that the Autobarn Countryside Service & Parts Team worked together to ensure my 2009 Passat was ready for Winter. Swap of the Winter Wheels & Tires was seamless as always thanks to Brien Akers inventory management skills. The oil change was routine amd Bob advised me that I had a couple of minor issues that needed attention to which I had him take care of one on this visit and will most likely attack the second on the next visit. Drop off and pickup were smooth and this time I even grabbed a snack from their Customer area before browsing the showroom. Joe
In our first car-buying experience we worked with one of the salesmen at Grand, Andrew Jennings, who made the whole process a breeze. Working with Andrew felt like hanging out with your friend who just happens to sell and know a lot about cars. We played fooseball, we were treated kindly, and we walked out feeling very happy about our purchase. Thanks, Grand, and thanks, Andrew!
Mike is extremely knowledgeable about Mercedes models. He is very prompt with questions and responses and follows up. A pleasure to deal with. The two vehicles I was pricing out were competitive nationally.
My experience with Audi Exchange and my salesman, Stuart, was excellent. Stuart was very helpful and knowledgeable about the car as well as taking the time to make sure I understood all the features. I plan on using the dealership for any and all my car needs.
Will be back next service, great staff, very polite, store was clean and loved the showroom. I love the video text that showed them working on my car most definitely ahead of the others with this technology. Thanks
I was pleasantly surprised how easy my car buying experience was. Valentina was professional and honest and I felt I was buying a car with a knowledgeable friend. The dealership itself was spotless and I know I won???t dread spending time there for car service in the future.
My salesman Erik Cardoso was very informative about the history of the vehicle and was very fair in negotiations of my trade in vehicle also. Would recommend Erik to my friends who are looking for a vehicle.
This dealership provides great service. Got tired of the hard sell every time I went to another local dealership. Only thing I think they could do better is the waiting area. Another dealership I used to go to had theater type seating and desks with chairs to work at. When you are waiting for your car for 2-4 hours comfort is nice.
Mike Alwin in the Service Department always takes great care of me and my vehicle. It’s always a smooth process to get my vehicle in, get my loaner car and be on my way. Thank you again for all of your help during my Service visits!
