My sales consultant Storm Davis did an excellent job in assisting in selection of the right car for me.
Management and financial were also helpful.
I will recommend this dealership to my friends.
Newest Car I've ever owned
by MommaBear from Fort Wayne, IN

This car meets all my standards & beats my expectations. I've never owned a car with as many bells & whistles as my 2016 Ford Focus. I have a family of 5 and I thought at first it might be to small bc our family is tall & big boned height ranges from 5'11" to 4' tall. We're all very comfortable together in the car. It has so many bells & whistles I'm still figuring everything out the car has to offer lol. It is a very reliable car, great on miles, great on gas I filled up for $17 I was so excited about that. I'm very happy with the car and everything it has to offer.
Always personable, professional, prompt and polite!
First and Great Car

First car ever owned. Specifically I have the Ford Focus 2018 1.0 Ecoboost. It’s automatic transmission and have great features for new drivers and has been really reliable. I plan on putting more miles on it and updating this but so far it’s been amazing. Only issue I have is I wish the lower end models still had Sync 3 as this car doesn’t support Apple CarPlay.
Spoke with Marcin about GMC 2500 on Dec, 5. 2018 discussed truck condition and made an offer on the truck. Marcin declined the offer and made a counter offered, I told him I would think about it overnight and call him on 6 December .
December 6 , I called Marcin , I made another offer on the vehicle, he excepted my offer on the vehicle and assured me the vehicle was in excellent shape for 2011 .
Traveled 567 miles one way to pick up what I expected to be a 2500 diesel truck in great shape. What I found when arriving at the dealership was a 2011 GMC 2500 in Great Shape as advertised ! How refreshing.
I’m a no nonsense customer and expect things to be as advertised and the negotiations to be short and sweet With all paperwork to be handled the same manor.
Marcin handled everything in a professional manner, the lady in the office had the paperwork ready in 15 minutes, I drove the truck off the lot in 45 minutes and was out of the dealership and on my way home .
That’s the way I like it . Excellent job Gulf Coast Auto on all points.
Thanks , Marcin , Lady in office and Gulf Coast Auto.

The car met all my needs like backup camera, Stylish feature like Sunroof/Moonroof, Gas Saver more miles per gallon. Bluetooth, Rear defrost, Power windows are added advantages.
i was looking for a car for weeks in many dealership but my credit is very low and they ask me too much for down payment but i found the car i want it in gulf coast Auto sarasota and Hazem help me out to get the car with low down payment and monthly payments,, He was honest, knowledgeable, and extremely responsive throughout my entire buying process. I highly recommend Hazem!.
Not for me, but is a great vehicle!

For me, this vehicle was too small. However, my son owns his 3rd one, and my friend is on her 5th one, and they love them. The car is reliable, practical. I needed a little more space than what it had. Ride was smoother than I expected. I had no problems or hesitations with it. Great little car.
Go see Mark and Steve at Gulf Coast Auto Brokers of Sarasota!!! I had the best buying experience ever here. There was no pressure, super accommodating, fast sales process, nice dealership with a great selection of cars. They went out of there way to work with my financial situation and I couldn't be happier with the sports car I bought from them. I will continue to buy all my cars there from here on out and highly recommend you go down there and personally see what I am talking about. You won't regret it! Go join the FAMILY!!
Nice car for a single "old" lady, which I am.

This car handles well on the road and I get excellent mileage. Travel quite a bit and take lady passengers with me all of the time. They are comfortable and feel safe.
Driving up, I was concerned....it’s not the kind of dealer I was used to dealing with. But they had a used car that I was interested in, for my daughter. We left in about three hours with a great car for her and what I considered to be a fair deal.
What else could you ask for?
The staff was amazing, and more than accommodating...considering it was Sunday and Mother’s Day to boot. The two young men and young woman who took care of us were courteous, professional and efficient. We talked to mama and grandma while paperwork was being done and we were at ease through the whole process.
We had the forethought to get pre-approved with USAA prior to going in, which made it a lot easier on all of us...but I was very happy with the whole experience. Thanks, to the team at Gulf Coast!!
Excellent condition with low mileage.

The car is excellent for in-town driving and gets great gas mileage using flex fuel. Easy to handle and park. It has new tires which makes it feel like you are driving it new off the showroom floor.
I purchase a 2013 Volvo XC90 from Scottie Auto Sales on line. I talks to Susie in the office there and she was great with all the paper works. she had the car shipped to me. the car was what I expected. very clean. I will buy again from Scottie Auto Sales
Great car that fit my needs.

My Focus has proven to be a very reliable and comfortable car. Unfortunately, Ford messed up the transmissions in some 2014 cars and this was one of them...Al Packer Ford took care of the problem and everything seems good so far...it's been over a year and 40,000 miles.
Overall I have been very happy with my 2014 Focus...total miles is now 140,000+ and there's many more to come!
The Service Dept did a good job and they washed the vehicle after the service
Super amazing car. Definitely worth the money
by Cdaddy from Euclid, OH

Car definitely meets my needs. Love everything about it. Had it for approximately 1 month. But its alot better than my last car. Everything in it works perfectly. The only problem I have with it, is that a piece of the interior door is loose.
Price and warranty clearly stated; David Rook was very informative. He told us everything we needed to know without being pushy or aggressive. We appreciate this type of experience which can be hard to come by at some dealerships. He was honest with us when we asked questions and didn't push us on things we didn't want. He took the time to chat with us while we waited and it was obvious he wasn't trying to just make some money or a quick sale.
Small engine, but plenty of power

This Ford indeed gets over 40 MPG on the highway. I will be getting 516 miles on a 12.4 gallon tank for the first week of driving the vehicle on the highway.
My request-need was a little bit unusual and everyone handled it seamlessly. The technician was very good and handled my car with a high level of care. I didn't catch his name. The technician and service advisor deserve a raise or bonus!
Lousy Transmission & Sound System
by Hambone from Chicago, IL
January 10, 2019
Have had this vehicle into the dealership multiple times with one clutch replacement. Still have issues due to the lousy transmission design. Now experiencing a loud crackling noise from the sound system where it is now unusable.
No issues or problems so far,with over 46500 miles
by Angus M from Wichita Falls, TX

A fun car to drive, handles and drives very well. Gas mileage is over 40MPG highway. Seating is comfortable except for the backseat and cabin is cramped. This car has lots of features and technology for the money. Overall a great value. My only complaint so far is the transmission has a slight stumble when in the lower gear when going from a complete stop, it is hard to get use to this and doesn’t always do this consistently.? I very much like driving this car!
Everyone was very nice and helpful. I got offered water by 4 different people while I was waiting which was nice. Lol.

This car is really great. It averages mid to upper 30's mpg. The ride is smooth. And with the Bluetooth, I can safely talk to others on the phone. One of the best cars that I've owned.
