A little background….. never purchased a Dodge of any type… always been a Tundra proud owner.
Tundra was recently totaled by a driver who was more focused on eating than driving and rear ended it when he panicked and slammed the accelerator instead of the brakes (true story)
We went shopping right away as I needed to truck for the business.
Shopped at Ford, Toyota (I did mentioned I’m loyal to Tundra,not necessarily to all Toyota products though), GM and Chevy.
We stopped by John Johnson and fell in love with the ’18 power wagon.
Sent emails to each dealer regarding the model I saw in their respective lots.
I want to be clear… sent same body of message to each with only changing the line where I detail the make/model I wanted best pricing and please not to waste my time.
ONLY John Johnson provided an OTD price! (Out the Door) and it was lower than I expected.
Email with sales manager (Sandy Keiper) were escalated to her sales manager (Jeff Bash) without my request!
Drove to meet them as they were already in the ballpark of what I was willing to pay for this vehicle
NO ONE SITS IN A HIDDEN OFFICE! THIS IS A FIRST FOR ME after purchasing vehicles for over 38 years!!!
Right there I requested yet another obscene price drop and both the sales manager and the GM (Scott Meshulam) do not question my request, but immediately begin going over what and where they can pull the difference!!!
Please understand my background is in Comp Sci and Mathematics so I had already pulled the sheet on this particular truck with all the options and the price they had originally quoted was what I would get if I purchased it from the factory floor!!!! And yet they dug deeper!
The professionalism and just plan “X Factor” on how this group deals with you as a person just turned me into a MOPAR for LIFE provided I can purchase from these 3 people!
That pretty much says it all

Sandy and everyone, thank you for your assistance in my purchase. Everyone was very respectful, very rare these days. Bought a 1500 Ram. From start to finish, no hassles or headaches. Highly recommend this establishment.
Bryce and his team at John Johnson Dodge go above and beyond to provide family like accomodations, comfortable low pressure buying is the way to go! Thanks guys! Big shoutout to Nick Zavros for expediting this whole process and taking the hassle out of the purchasing experience Johns crew is the best around reason why I drive over an hour to get here
The nicest vehicle I have ever owned
by StephenF from Dickinson, TX
December 15, 2018
The Pacifica is extremely nice, has more amenities than we actually originally were after, has a comfortable ride akin to a Mercedes and has been reliable in the past. We have 3 kids under 11 and it makes transporting them around for daily tasks easy and safe.
I wanted to take a moment and say that I bought a car yesterday at Fullerton Jeep and once again was treated impeccably by Lou Rimblas. He was polite, knowledgeable and made me remember once again that Fullerton is the place to go for my car needs. Lou- thank you!
I miss the Honda Odyssey.

This is a good looking vehicle and very comfortable to ride in. Having Stow and Go for all middle and rear seats us great! Parking assist with back up camera is very helpful as well as the sensors on the side mirrors. The radio is easy to operate and I appreciate controlling the temperature for the whole vehicle from the front. My frustrations with the Pacifica are in the interior use of space. Putting 3 children's car seats in the middle row is very tight. The center console is small and not closed in( front or back) so one is limited with what can go in that space securely. The cup holders are small, limiting the size bottle or cup one can fit there, especially in the door. Some of the storage pockets are so small and such an odd shape, they're not usful. The Pacifica is nice, but I expected better than this from Chrysler.
Lionel made the process easy. He was terrific to work with. I felt like he was helping me, not just trying to sell any vehicle for the sake of a sale.

Love the STOW AND GO seating! This alone is awesome for camping and not fussing with taking seats in and out. Cant wait to buy the vehicle, with as much extended coverage as I can get cause it’s a long term investment for me...10 years at least. Minivan drives and handles wonderfully!
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.
Great car with great features
by Nate the Gator from Deltona, FL

Love the bells and whistles of our 2017 Pacifica. Love the space and comfort. The room and also the styling makes this car worth the price.
Both my husband and I went in for new / used cars and left in a few short hours with very reasonable prices but the process went very smooth. Our sales man understood our wish list and we didn't waste a lot of time "exploring" too many irrelevant options!
Horrible video and GPS interface
by Chad from Waverly
December 6, 2018
The video controls have no button info and is extremely clunky. For instance you have 4 direction arrows and an ok button. No play button. So when the kids are wanting a movie to play you are blindly trying to get it to work while trying not to get into an accident. The GPS is more of the same. The voice commands while driving are extremely limited as to what you can say. It does not find normal reference points (could be from the lack of understood commands and references), it starts by asking you what country you are in, if it messes up the voice recognition in the 5 or 6 questions it asks you, you have to start over which is 70% of the time. The styling is great, the performance is as expected from a known platform but the user interface execution with the knowledge there are kid demands is some of the worst I have ever used. As a user of a vehicle like this and as a parent you have enough distractions, trying to use basic functions of the interface shouldn't be your biggest distraction. You are taking your eyes off the road way too much to try to figure out the vague controls that you just end up pushing whatever because there is no function assigned but its the only thing you have. Whoever designed this must not have kids and missed the idea to design a safe, easy, and a stress free user interface. This van concerns me for the safety of my family when sending my wife and kids out in it.
Such a great experience! Steve Silverstein thoroughly explained the leasing process and patiently answered all of my questions, especially since I'm new to the leasing process! This is my second experience with Beyer Ford, and both times, everything ran smoothly and the staff was extremely friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable (not to mention all of the amazing incentives!) I definitely recommend this dealership to anyone looking to buy or lease!
Safest vehicle I've ever driven.
by Bay City senior driver from Bay City Mi

This is our third Chrysler van and is by far the most advanced. We have owned 2015, 2016 Town and Country vans and the Pacifica is a tremendous upgrade. The electronic safety features make it easy for me, a 70 year old driver, feel very comfortable driving in traffic or backing
My Experience at Sands was the way it should be at every dealership! I'm that tough customer who contemplates and perseverates until I find exactly what I want. Looking for a used car, I am glad my final decision ended with a warm and welcoming dealership such as Sands. Joe Lyons was pleasant, professional and extremely helpful Between Joe, Matt and Chris my experience was flawless. They did everything right to make it work for me with in my budget! I will definitely be recommending Sands! Everyone there was great! On a side note thanks to Jimmy Mack for making me laugh!
Best car buying experience I ever had
by Mark at SPT from Tampa, FL
January 11, 2019
Shopped the entire State of Florida for a Pacifica just the way I wanted it. Ferman blew away the field with both selection and price and it wasn't even close. This dealership is full of professionals that aim to please. Miguel was our salesman, he bent over backwards, was honest and straightforward and made the experience a pleasure. They have a new customer for life.
We had our Jeep breakdown while we were 3 1/2 hours from home. We called Sands service department because we knew it should be under warranty. They were so helpful and amazing that we knew we would come here to buy our next car! We were not disappointed!
So far so good!

We just purchased a used 2017 Pacifica 2 days ago. So far it is going good. The only thing missing is USB ports in the 2nd and 3rd row seats. Other than that we love the Van!
Justin hydro mad all the difference in my transaction he was very helpful from financing to setting up the my test drive I would recommend him to anyone visiting this dealership without him I might have shop somewhere else thanks alot justin
Traded in a 13 yr old Odyssey
by Vanperson from Allentown, PA
December 10, 2018
Good looking car. There was a period of transition with all the bells and whistles, even on the L. Passengers all like the ride, but head rests have a strong forward tilt for some riders. Do like the bells and whistles, esp., flasher on mirrors when cars approach. Heat and air are both great.
It was a great place of sections of vehicles to pick from and everyone that I worked with and talked to was great. I would tell friends and family about it.
First Impressions Are Good
by MiniVan is MegaUseful from Jessup, MD

We formerly drove Subaru Forester. So the Pacifica is a welcome upgrade. We believe that we have a great value for the price we got. The engine is powerful and quite despite the size of the vehicle. We find the interior design flexible and well laid out. The comfort of the drive is good, not luxurious and we definitely notice the larger size, but these were expected. It is difficult to judge reliability at this time. Our car has 8k miles and has no issues.
The user interface on the vehicle was initially challenged by a lack of information (or our inability to find the information) in the manual. We have learned far more from instructional videos on YouTube. So, if you want an idea of how easy setting up phones and how to manage the car's systems - start there even before your test drive. After we drove it for a week, we found that the layouts were intuitive and the multiple ways of accomplishing the same task made common functions very manageable.
Our first impression on the Pacifica is that we can't wait to drive it.
Thank you justin hydro for helping for the car. I got a jeep. Im so happy. I recommend Roth rock if you getting a car
I own a 2017 pacifica
by TiredUtahMom from Ogden Ut
December 22, 2018
I LOVE the look of it. I wish it has more storage spots if you have to stow the seats there is no where else. The main reason for this review is to hope some one at Chrysler sees this and fixes one big thing. I got stuck today, it would have been so much easier to use the winch on the jeep that came to my rescue but there is NO WHERE to attach a tow rope or cable.
Anthony was an awesome help in obtaining our new Jeep! He was easy to work with, friendly, not a typical salesman! He was able to get us to where we wanted to be with payments and we appreciate his efforts! Love our new Jeep Cherokee!
Has some transmission problems
by Seamha from Roanoke, VA

Love the looks of my van. Hate that this van has a hard shift problem. Been back to dealer several times, Chrysler states this is a normal condition. Nothing normal about driving down the road and almost getting into an accident due to car losing power then jerking into gear. Van is back at dealer hopefully for a fix this time.

One may want to consider Johnson Automotive Group for your next vehicle. I have purchased one and leased another from Tom O'Hare. He takes his time to ask the right questions then put you in the vehicle that is right for you. There are no games with him. The process is easy, all incentives for your new vehicle of choice will be given, and you will be satisfied. I do not understand why this man has not been promoted? Mr. Johnson, promote Tom. You will not be disappointed. When you are in need of a new vehicle visit Tom O'Hare at Johnson Auto Group either online or in person. The experience will be worth your while.
