Friendly, easy to get in touch with - high prices.

Clean facility friendly people setting up the test drive was easy.
I dislike not being able to negotiate, as their price was very high for the vehicle and their idea of a "very good" interest rate on a 2016 car was 5% (I've been quoted at 2% for same vehicle) was amusing.
If people don't like to negotiate and don't want to shop around this is a very nice place to buy a car, similar to comparing iPhones (CarMax) to Android (every other dealer).
I came in knowing the value of my first and current Mazda, and had a good idea what I wanted and how much I wanted to spend. Tyler listened to what I had in mind and found the car for my needs. The negotiations were relatively painless. A very good experience.
Traveled 2 hours here to look at a car, Hannah worked with me and actually found a few other cars for me to test drive and ended up liking a different car better than the one I originally came to test. Asked about the tires while test driving and was told they were almost new and have to be Wisconsin legal to sell (2/32 in. so no tread). Took that for word, and didn't look at them. Decide to buy the car, came and purchased it a week later. Now, once I'm home I decided to look at the tires because of the way the car handled on a lightly snow covered road a couple days later. There is virtually no tread (barely Wisconsin legal). So on top of buying a new car, which I had to because mine was totaled and I just put brand new tires on it. I have to buy brands new tires again, so I can actually drive in Wisconsin snow covered roads. They were well aware that I was worried about the tires because I had mentioned it more than once and knew I couldn't come back down to look at it before buying it and never said they would need to be replaced for winter.
I have a 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe and have been taking it to Symdom for service for some time now, even receiving a free oil change after meeting criteria. The service staff are always friendly listening to concerns, answering questions. The technicians are professional and thorough and leave truck interior cleaner than when I brought it in. Symdom treats me and my Hyundai as if I purchased it from them.
A little disappointed that the car I was looking at online for wasn’t what was on the lot. I searched for sunroof and The Malibu came up along with backup camera. Well when we got there to look at the car it had NONE of those options and it was listed with the same price and car #. Makes me a little upset as it was a waste of my time
Usually, I do not enjoy the customer service I experience with this dealership. However, during my last experience, the service was amazing. I hit a deer and the shop got me in as soon as possible. The drop off was amazing. When picking my vehicle up, they were so nice. I called and told them the time I was able to pick up the car, and they moved my pick up time by 4 hours! I was so happy! Then when I picked up my car, they were all ready with the keys, and it took only 5 mins! When I went to my car, it was so beautiful! They had washed the car, and the work was amazing! It almost looked brand new! They also cleaned the inside for me! I was so happy with this experience and I hope my experiences in the future are just as good!
This was my first experience buying from Goben and Krystal was wonderful!! She took excellent care of us and even ordered some new tires, since the vehicle was brand new to the lot the day I purchased it. I've never bought an SUV before but I'm so grateful I did. It's perfectly safe and comfortable with fun features for me and my family. Would not hesitate to recommend Krystal and Goben East to anyone else!
Darren went above and beyond his duty in the service department. We got a great deal also. I'd definitely recommend this dealership! I sent my sin in to buy one too!
