I worked with Jeff Filiault from Subaru of Santa Cruz to finance a used Crosstrek Hybrid, which is the first car I have ever owned. I had already done my research, test driven the vehicle several times, and had two cars of the same model bought out from under me. So when I went to Jeff, he did not have to press hard to sell me.
In fact, he never really pressed at all. The guy was outstanding! I was trying to juggle financing with a remote cosigner, as well as buying from a distant city and only being able to manage weekend visits. Jeff helped me every step of the way. He held the vehicle for a whole week after I gave a soft commitment, and facilitated sending the paperwork to my cosigner several states away overnight (and near the holidays). After the purchase was squared away, he even drove over 40 minutes to pick me up from where I live and bring me to the dealership, all after business hours.
I really felt like Jeff and Subaru of Santa Cruz had my back throughout the whole process, and I would definitely buy from them again.
Tip: Do not buy any extended warranty, especially when financing. I love this dealer, but this is where they make massive margins.
My husband and I purchased a 2017 Chevrolet Spark at Peninsula Chevrolet 2 weeks ago. We were very pleased with this dealership. Peter Sercia, the owner, very friendly, kind and expressed a keen interest in our securing the best deal on this vehicle. Chris Conely, who has a wonderful personality made sure that we chose the right car for our needs and walked us through every aspect of our new car. Mike Dronet was soo knowledgeable and made sure we received the best financing possible. All three men are phenomenal as well as Peninsula Chevrolet in Seaside, which is the best dealership on the Monterey Peninsula.
Bought my first new car in 14 years from this place. Good experience with the sales process, it only took about 4 hours and we drove home in our new Acadia!
