Wow...what a relief!
I was driving home yesterday in my 2014 Infiniti Q70, when I took corner at slow rate of speed, I glanced in my rearvew mirror and observed a vehicle who apparently would have liked to take turn at faster pace. As I looked forward again I heard pop...and immediately saw passenger side mirror ??? Not normal....as a car fanatic ...lol...lover I ...said ...shoot..lol
To clarify I knew ...I didn't hit people or property because had clear view as making turn.
Anyhow to get to point ....pulled over checked side of car ...looked fine ...knew I couldn't do much on side street ...so quickly decided to just use scotch tape I had in glove box, to tape assembly ...mirror (which was intact)...address nightmare...lol...I take pride in keeping my car mint...and I think most car lovers would agree ...until restored ...issue fixed
As I was driving rest of way home...seeing taped mirror started bugging me...I know just a car ...could be worse...I'm probably a little shallow...lol
And I know this is review of service department at county line Nissan ...but I think background is relavant to why I'm so thankful to have trusted dealer ...service advisor.
So obviously I'm anxious to get mirror fixed...quickly.
Now the cost to diagnose repair...could I do myself...autobody ..dealer (which is hour drive)...
Thought about whether to put in claim with insurance company ...kind of quickly ruled that out ...quite sure I have 1000 comp and collision deductible ..
Not to cry poverty but new I had very little ...64.14...lol
in checking ....and credit cards tapped
Very tired when I got home so decided to forget till tomorrow morning.
Got up early and did some research on side mirror repair...glass, entire unit etc etc...
Was feeling a little better ...rested ...and happy that glass and unit seemed to be intact...hadn't inspected fully yet but seemed better than some examples in research ...where glass and or whole unit dangling or broken....learned that adhesive ...locktite glue is used to adhere glass to plastic plate on top of mechanism ..,
Thought about buying some ...where to buy...if after further inspection I thought I could try repairing myself ....
Then self doubt set in ...lol...would I make it worse ...would glass fall off
I needed wanted professional help! For my car..lol
Without sidetracking much further ....I thought of dealer, county line Nissan ...which I have used for all maintenance ....and absolutely love.
But, as I am housesitting for friend....was about hour away.....but decided they were my best shot to get straight best course of action ...for temporary fix ...and/or options for complete repair .
All right I'll get to point!
Get there...first in line...Quinn, Service Operations Manger gives me red carpet greeting as usual ...quietly listens to my sob story ....right out of gate comforts me with best case scenario ....oh sometimes they /glass just pop off....been to many other dealers who ????
Alright I'll finish ....
So kind considerate professional ....says go relax in service area ...as he himself is peeling off scotch tape ...I'll take a look and be right in....within 5 minutes he comes in and says your all set.....
Now you know why I dragged you through all the superfluous background ...can you imagine how happy I was/am:):)
Definitely my hero...
And this is consistent with all my dealings with them...
Gary ....off the charts fabulous...Kevin ...awesome...
Not sure if I dealt with Greg ...director? Department manager but kudos to him and his team, so refreshing to find know I have trusted advisor
I recommend this dealer 100%...go there ...buy and service your car knowing they are kind considerate caring experts:)
Very nice and reliable van

This 2016 odysels like new very comfortable and luxurious inside the for a used car it was a good deal and with a lowered price!!
Recently I purchased a total of three cars from Greenlight Auto. I am 71 years old and purchased more than my share of cars and this experience with Greenlight Auto is by far the absolute best experience I have ever had. Carlos, the general manager is a true professional in every aspect and is an even better person. If you can not work out a deal with these guys, then you aren't really trying. Steve who had to service all the cars was great and he too went over and beyond the call of duty. My wife, daughter and grandson are and were very pleased with the whole process. Without hesitation , I would recommend this dealership to friends and family.
Great Car for Short Moms

I’m 5’0’, and one thing that was extremely important to me was that my family car accommodates my height and pregnant belly (when in that season of life). Honda thought of it all: adjustable and telescoping steering wheel and gas petal, memory for both me and my husband who is 16’ taller than me, which is a delightful commodity, very adjustable seat and seatbelt shoulder strap, and sun flaps that actually block the sun!!
All their other extras are so fun to have too. I love their magic rows, the large storage compartments, the conversation mirror so I can check on my kids at a glance, the 6cd player and navigation systems, and their corner alarm system so you don’t hit the curb.
DVD player will be fun when our kids occasionally watch something too.
Most of my friends own an Odyssey or have it on their wishlist, and it has been a reliable car in our long, icy winters, especially if you get Snow Tires.
Everyone was great! Vincent was a wonderful sales person and everyone I dealt with was friendly and helpful.
Newly Purchased Used Vehicle. No complaints.
by Trust the Rust from Manchester, CT

We were looking for a used vehicle that had acceptable mileage, good online reviews, and would fit our ever-growing family. This minivan fit the bill! We haven't had the vehicle for long, but meanwhile have found no issues with it. We LOVE the interior features - especially the removable middle seat in the middle row. The leather seats are comfy and will undoubtedly serve well for a family with small kids.
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.
very good car

I purchased a certified pre-owned 2016 Honda Oddessay with some options and under 32,000 miles. This car met all my need. The features and smart key are a nice touch. The ride is much more comfortable than my previous car I drove. My children I like the automatic doors and sun roof. Should've bought this car earlier. Plus, the dealer was so kind .
After visiting several of the typical dealerships I walked away confused and Unsatisfied. After visiting Carvana.com I picked out a vehicle to my liking and price point fill out the paperwork got approval I had my new vehicle delivered to my front door. Most typical dealerships you spend half a day walking away with an overpriced vehicle in an overpriced interest-rate. Carvana has made it an enjoyable experience and it can be done from the luxury of your Home. Thanks Carvana.
This is the most amazing vehicle i’ve ever owned!!

This vehicle is very comfotable and in good condition like new. So i really love this vehicle. I highly recommend this vehicle to you. It is excellent.
My experience with carvana was and still is very good. I wanted to sell my can a few months ago and Madison was super nice. Undirtunately I had to cancel the sell bc of personal reasons. Now I???m again in the process of selling and Madison is super patient with me and so nice!

Bought this car recently and have owned for a few months. Coming from a Toyota Highlander, you cannot beat the comfort and ride quality of the Oddyssey!
I posted my car on Craigslist. Never heard of Caravana before. Tom Perkins called me and told me about Caravan. He send me the link. Put a few information and walaaa, got my reasonable offer for my car. I attached a picture of my drivers license and the title of the car on the website. Made appointment to have them pick up the car, gave me my check......done. Seriously, it was that easy. Tom Perkins followed up the whole time with a text how the process is going. Best service. If you want sell your car with no hassle, go with Caravan. Thanks for the best service Tom.
Best car for comfort, reliable!

I loved this minivan! I never had any issues with it. It was comfortable, easy to maneuver and I even towed my camper behind it! I leased mine and I loved it! You cant go wrong with Honda, very reliable!
By the time I made it to Stephen Toyota; I knew exactly what I wanted, I just didn???t know from who. I had been shopping around and comparing salesmen pitches, which is truthfully exhausting. When I met with Saeid Heydari, it was different. He made the process about me and what I wanted. He didn???t try to jazz up and sell me a car or features I didn???t need- but had me lay out everything I wanted (and didn???t) and just made it happen. He was patient and fought for me, as a customer, to get what I wanted for the price I wanted. No matter how many times I sent him back to the ???big boss??? for a better price or to add or change something, Saeid did it with a laugh and smile on his face. He didn???t just sell me a car; he sold me his trust.
Very reliable vehicle.

We always use Honda Odyssey, they are real comfortable and reliable, we are been using this Models since 20 years ago, they are really awesome for family vacations.
I had THE best experience at Carmax...the salespeople were non-pressuring, helpful and just amazing (especially Daniel!). They went out of their way to make every step comfortable and unpainful. I will most definitely go there when I need to buy my daughter a car and when I need to upgrade in a few years!
one of the best cars (300) I hve owned oer a 70 yr
by Happy Major Player from BRADENTON

On the road this is a very comfortable car that is easy to drive at high speeds. It is quiet and the visibility is perfect. AND there is excellent room for the passengers. Also, a plus is the service at the local Hendrick dealer is superior to others.
My husband and I were looking for a used car. We found some cars on the Brandfon Honda website and spoke with Kristen. She had the cars ready for us to test drive the same day. We were greeted by Grandell as soon as we arrived. We met with Kristen briefly and Grandell took us for a test drive in each of the cars. He was patient, knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. We purchased a car the same day. It was the most efficient, hassle free purchase I have ever experienced. I highly recommend this dealership and our salesman Grandell! It was our first time buying from Brandfon Honda and we would definitely buy from them again in the future.
My second Odessey and I will remain loyal
by Purplecakers from Columbus

This car is perfect for me and my son who has disabilities. Plenty of room for wheelchair and his "stuff" along with other people. Runs great, reliable and comfortable to drive, even long distances. A great improvement over past Dodge Caravans that weren't reliable or long life vehicles.
I???ve purchased 5 cars from this dealership over the past 10 years. 4 of them purchased from Joanne Panzo. I love working with her because I never feel like she???s trying to sell me bs. She will tell me if something is a good deal or a waste of my time. I feel like they???re fair. And even though this dealership has caused me some grief in the past, they always go out of their way to make it right. The cars are priced reasonably so I don???t spend a ton of time dealing with haggling. There really is no need for it. Ask for Joanne. She will make you feel comfortable and she keeps it light, which is needed at times when dealing with these types of transactions. I also dealt with Ed for the financing and I appreciated his calm demeanor and also his straight answers. I will always return here to buy cars because I can???t stand wordy and gimmicky sales people, and I never feel that way here.
Best value for 8 seater
by Dan W from Indianapolis
October 29, 2018
We looked at used Toyota Sienna, Honda Pilot, etc under $30k, but this was best value and most practical for 8 member family (while still having nice looks) and also needing low ground to door height for elderly family member's ease of entry.
No regrets. I would like Honda to make these AWD in the future, as would be better for minivans in snow/ice, that was the only reason I was leaning towards a Sienna, but Odyssey's other features were better in my opinion. If Honda could do AWD and make the second row seats "stow and go", they would have #1 minivan sales, I am sure.
Honda's quality, styling, and total package is better than others from the time I have spent researching before this purchase.
Great feedback on available cars! They got back to me right away on an inquiry about a car that I viewed on their website through Cars.com. They kept me up to date with any new information. Thanks!
Reliable comfortable car

Plenty of room and perfect for a family! I love how the seats in the middle row can slide apart to fit three car seats in the middle row. This car has a lot of features. We bought this car Used Certified Pre Owned and it is in great shape! Turning radius is really good and the automatic sliding doors and tailgate are convenient.
When I went looking for a Subaru Crosstrek in a hurry because my ailing husband could no longer get into his Audi, I filled out a Consumer Reports form to start my search. Out of the six responses I got within 15 hours, April Zanotti???s stood out because it was friendly, straightforward, and offered a choice of cars at a good price. Everything went smoothly: the right car, in the right color, at the right price, and on the right day. April was always smiling, cheerful and to the point. The trade in went smoothly. All April???s colleagues were equally friendly ??? even to our dog when he came with me! ??? and I cannot recommend this dealership highly enough for making the purchase of a car a pleasant and efficient experience from start to finish. Oh, and we are very pleased with the car too.
Most reliable car I've owned.. very happy!

This car is amazing, my family loves it. I would definitely recommend purchasing one if it's what your family needs. We are thrilled with it so far.
This dealership is the best there is. I have family that had shopped here and it was highly recommended. I plan on buying Subaru's from here each time I look for a new car. I know Colonial is going to have what I need. I wish I could rate more than five stars.
Easiest Family Car to Drive
by Wookiefan from Los Angeles, CA
December 30, 2018
I loved owning this minivan. It handled great, was easy to pack with two kids, two dogs, and two bulky car seats. Easily seated three adults in the third row. Great on road trips. Biggest drawback was it only had one USB port and it was in the glove box. Did have plenty of power outlets and cup holders. Very easy to move seats or remove seats for carrying larger loads.
Everyone at Wiz Autos was wonderful ... Tom went out of his way to show me an Acadia Denali that wasn???t even on the lot yet! When I fell in love with it he went above and beyond to make sure it was safety checked, detailed, and even replaced a few things to make the Acadia absolutely perfect and ready for me to pick up the next day!! Meir made paying for the car so easy!! From start to finish the paperwork process of buying the car took less than 15 minutes!!! This was by far the best buying experience I???ve had ... I will absolutely be back and referring my friends!

Truly a wonderful experience, highly recommend Mikes Motors when shopping for a car. The staff was friendly and attentive to our needs. The staff made it so easy from start to finish.
This is my car of choice.

I’ve owned 2 Honda Odysseys and I’m planning on getting another one. They are comfortable, easy to drive, fit everyone and everything , get great gas mileage and are built to last! I especially love the sliding doors which make getting in and out so easy!
Thanks to the friendly Hoffman team, and specifically, Loai As'ad and David Ezedine--thanks for your patience and humor, despite my waffling! Your tenacity paid off.
