Pretty good overall experience. I bought a nice used car. The salesman was friendly and went with me on a test drive. My first initial contact was online via email. We set up an appointment at my convenience. When I arrived the salesman had the car pulled out and parked up front and ready for me to examine and test drive. The only thing I would complain about it is that it took quite a long time to get to the finance manager's office to complete the sale because they were having slow internet/computer problems, which caused me to wait a considerable amount of time. They were very apologetic and made every effort to try to get me going as soon as they could. I would return to this dealership in the future.
Great site, Bad Dealership

I had found many cars looking here, its just sadly the one I chose, and more specifically the dealership Planet Auto was a dishonest place. Iv spent 4.5 grand in repairs.
Lots of variety and flexible financing options available if your looking for a vehicle. Sales man was knowledgeable and not too pushy. Next time I am loking for a car I will stop by here again.
Great little car

I have a 2017 Chevy Sonic Premium with Turbo.
This car has pep. I would suggest getting a turbo no matter your needs as it will help you negotiate traffic. This car has comfortable seating as my Acadia which I downgraded from. It has heated seats and steering wheel, the steering wheel doesn't seem to get very warm but I hardly use it. I hate keyless start but that's kind of standard anymore. I've left my car running a few times when I get out of it on accident. I was looking at an Impala Premier but couldn't find a price I could afford and have trouble driving "big" vehicles hence my downgrading from an Acadia
I haven't had the Sonic in the shop yet. I bought it used with 46,000 miles and have put about 10,000 on it. It's a comfy car and my husband who is 5"11 even agrees that is comfortable. It is a tight car no doubt. It is slightly loud but I'm used to it with other vehicles.
It's a very fun car to drive. It has a huge trunk and fold down the seats for more room.
The ride is a little bumpy due to the low profile tires, I would like to get some different thicker tires for a more cushioned ride but other than that I wouldn't change much.
My family has bought at least 5 vehicles from this place over the past 10 years and they've always done good for us. Marcos (the guy we always seem to end up buying a car from), has always been honest and upfront about things regarding the cars, the dearlership policies, and the special offers. He's also very friendly, talking to you like a person and not just a potential sale. The cars we get have always been reliable. Never bought a 'lemon' car from here. The longest lasting was a Seabring that we had for over 10 years, and it would have lasted much longer if it weren't for being in an accident. The shortest lasting one was a '99 Pontiac Grand Am that I had for only two years, but that's because I traded it in for a real nice 08 Taurus which I got from the same place for a great price.

I'm confused about all these 4 and 5 star ratings, are we reviewing the same vehicle? The sonic is one word, poor, in warranty, reliability, fit and finish.

This car meets all my needs for my husband and I. We love our sonic. Best decision we could of made. Trunk is big backseat has just enough legroom and the interior design is beautiful.
Jason and Mike worked after hours to get me into a new (2019) Colorado. I appreciate the friendly no complaints can do attitude. Jason also gave me a follow up call a few days later to see if everything was good. Thank you guys! Tim
Great Car for all needs

My first Sonic was a 2013 and honestly the first car I really fell in love with! I had a very hard time trading it in because it was such a great car, never gave me a bit of trouble until about the 90,000 miles and even then not big issues. I just traded it for a 2018 and am pleased to say so far so good! If you are looking for a great little car for running short trips that will also give you the performance and comfort for long trips, look no further. The Sonic gives you everything you could possible want in one small package, great gas mileage, gadgets, performance, comfort, and sportiness. You will also be very surprise at just how much you can pack into it.
awesome choices, easy to deal with & straight forward from the get go. I got my new Eclipse cross at great price & payment. Was worth the 2 hour drive. I recommend this dealership and their staff. Thank you Renn Kirby Mitsubishi
Decent value car
by Tennis star from Palm springs ca

It’s met my needs. It a tad loud, but great value for the money I paid. The rear hatchback hydraulic is already broken. I love the mileage and size of the car
Walid - the owner makes shopping for a used car a pleasant experience. He's knowledgeable, honest, and not pushy. He answered my questions and explained options during my used car search. Walid advised me which of the three makes I was considering would be best for me - and why. If you want a fancy showroom - look elsewhere. If you want a good experience - look here.
Never again will I buy a Chev Sonic
by Sodisappointed from Halifax
December 31, 2018
I bought a 2014 Sonic in June 2018, with 39,000km it now has 47,000km.
6 months of purchasing car the transmission gave out! I had the car towed into the car dealership yesterday so tomorrow being Monday their service dept will open and I’m waiting to hear what they have to say. I believe it’s still under warranty but that’s not the point the point is i babies that car never drove it hard and the transmission goes???? Yea not impressed whatsoever be the last one I purchase!!
I went to find my son a car. The experience was great! No pushy fast talking salesman. I felt comfortable purchasing a car. Mr Walid was knowledgeable about the car. Seemed to be an honest guy. I would highly recommend.

Perfect for singles, travelers but not comfy for hours long. Amazing on gas, good for teenagers as well! I travel a lot in this car and it cost me almost oth if!
The dealer has been a breeze to work with. The process has not been complicated. I found the staff to be very honest. I loved the fact that I could walk out with my permanent tags, no coming back or going to the MVA for them. I have not needed any repairs, but I don't expect to need any either. This has been my best experience EVER buying a vehicle!
Very nice car for the money

This car has everything. It is comfortable and fun. Perfect for my college daughter. great on gas and has onstar which is great! Nav and app are a wonder addition.
I purchased a 2010 Kia Forte from Vehicle Wish back in July of 2012.
Before coming across his inventory, I had searched over hours and hours looking at OVERPRICED cars from dealerships and private sellers. - And let me just say, I hate when sales people try to pressure you into purchasing a vehicle. I understand this is how you take care of your family but trying to use psychology on people to buy is the quickest way for me to walk out the door! - One day I went to check out a vehicle from a different dealership that just so happened to be right next door to VehicleWish. That night, I went online and looked at the vehicles and the pricing. I called the next morning and asked so many questions because I was surprised at the year of the cars, mileage and price. I went in to test drive the Forte I had found online and I said, this is the one. That of course was after test driving and my bank runs background checks anyway so everything checked out.
Wahlid to care of all my questions/concerns and even followed up to make sure I still liked my car! Now fast forward to 2017. I still have this car and (knock on wood) have never had an issue with it. I bought it at around 30k or 40k miles and have put about 122k miles on it.
If you are serious about buying a used car at a great price then look no further. I have recommended friends/family who have purchased here. The next time I am in the market for a vehicle I will come here first, no question.
Thank you so much Wahlid!
It's a sports car, feels good when the turbo kicks

Wow 33.7 mpg on freeway at 89 mph. There is so much more room on the inside then it looks, A sporty feel with 4 doors and
My daughter bought her first car here yesterday. Both the men were very nice and helpful. We didn't have to sit forever waiting on paperwork-he did a lot of it over the phone, which was really great! We are very happy!
Cute, Reilable, and the anti collision package is
by Rhonda from Frisco, Tx
December 30, 2018
This car meets all my needs, fit, style, comfort, rear backup and anti collision. My husband is 250 lbs and the seat is a little small for him, but it's my car and it fits me well and I'm under 200 pounds. I love the car every day more and more.
If you want someone who knows about cars, go talk to Damir Sabolcec at Ourismon VW Volvo of Bethesda. He is extremely enthusiast about cars and is not pushy about making sales. He got me a great deal on my Jetta Sport.
Stylish interior with a myriad of functions
by Iamthewalrus from Bellingham

This car meets all of my needs. The backup camera comes in handy and there are no big blind spots. The touch screen display and phone projection option make it seem like an even newer car.
This dealership is phenomenal! The level of customer service is off the charts.
I spent several weeks trying to decide on a vehicle that would best suit our needs.
My husband is a Disabled Veteran so many things had to be considered.
Patience and understanding with everyone I spoke to.
I would definitely refer this Dealership!
The biggest piece of sh*t ever made!!!

Less than thirty thousand miles lit up like a Christmas tree nothing but problems!!! Can't trade it off thanks to good old west brothers and GM outrageous interest rate!! Will never buy a brand new car again!
We've been looking for a Suburban with specific options and color combination. David Harrison never gave up the search until he found the perfect one! All of our boxes were checked and it's beautiful. On top of finding our perfect Suburban, we got an outstanding trade allowance for our Tahoe. We couldn't be happier.
Great on gas poor on power

After driving the car for about 90 days there is a lot that i would change. 1st the headrest are to big to see out the side window. 2nd the dashboard is two colors not one. 3rd no drivers seat adjustment like there is on the passenger side. 4th instrument cluster could be changed.
I called Criswell's Service department to schedule a time to bring my truck in for a "check engine" light. Brandon answered and quickly got me a date and time within two days from when I called. Once there, he was very professional and advised he would give me a call with the diagnosis and options. He called that afternoon, and discussed options with no pressure of doing more than I wanted. Which I really appreciated, knowing some other dealers would have, but Brandon and Criswell did not! He and his Service team finished the work that afternoon and I was back in my truck in no time! This team at Criswell, I would recommend to anyone who is looking for the best! Thanks again Brandon and the Criswell Service Team!
So far this has been a great little car
by Celtic Wave - Irish music from Winnipeg Canada

I was coming down in size from an SUV to this smaller car as there is just the two of us now. The standard engine was to slow for passing on the highway but the turbo has great passing and general pick up that feels good. The car handles well and last winter it had no trouble with the snow . The back seat area is not great for foot room but we seldom have extra passengers, the trunk seems to be large enough for us . We do carry quit a bit of stuff, folding seats and spare picnicking supplies for our sightseeing excursions.
Very happy with my dealership. Will always recommend to anyone.
