I was shopping for a new CRV and contacted AutoNation Honda in Valencia CA through their website. In my email I asked for a price on the 2018 CRV EX. I quickly received an email from Gidomer Francia with a price that was very favorable. And that's the reason I drove 25 miles to AutoNation in Valencia, bypassing numerous dealers closer to my home. Gidomer's straightforward answer to my email immediately set AutoNation apart from the other dealers. Because the other dealers, when asked the same question, all wrote back with some variation on the following theme: "We're going to give you a really great deal. Please give us your phone number so we can call to tell you all about the deal." And when I met Gidomer and the others at AutoNation, it was clear to me that they were interested in getting me the car I wanted at a good price, with no hidden fees or add-ons. And, everything they told me they would do, they backed up in writing and delivered on it. I don't think it's possible to have a better car buying experience than the one I had with Gidomer at AutoNation Valencia. And I'm telling all my friends about it.

One of the good looking SUV with great driving dynamics. Interior is upscale premium. I am using this car in my everyday's commute and I am happy with this car.
Everything was great except for fact that car didn’t get washed. I’ve had other brands of cars and Honda needs to step it up.
Best car I have owned

This car has exeeded all of my expectations. It is comfortable, quiet, and has great acceleration. All of the features, including radar cruise control and other electronic safety devices are awesome. To get these features in other cars you need to buy a top of the line package, but, in Mazda they are in all of them. I love my car.
Petros was very informative and helpful. I received a great service for my car
Sports Car in an SUV

I did quite a bit of test driving and reading about the various cars and suvs in the similar segment. I was impressed by how far Mazda has come along to design and built good looking cars, engines, chassis, etc. The CX-5 is a 2.4 L 4 cylinder developing 185 hp. The interior design and quality is up market. The exterior design is smooth and sporty. The engine for its size and power is very peppy and responsive. The suspensions are stiff enough to give you great handling and making you feel like a semi sports car on rails. The model i bought was a Grand Touring variant which has a sports mode and also a trip Tronic gear box. The trip tronic gear box is sensitive to your input of up shifting or down shifting but half a second slower from our input. The sports mode is wild and makes the car up shift and down shift based on our tune of driving. The sports mode and the Trip Tronic shifting combined is pretty responsive. The automatic gear is pretty smooth. I also found the road noise is reduced, no wind noise as the cabin is well sound proofed. The engine grunt can be heard inside when the engine is revving at a higher rpm. The overall comfort is good, little bumpy since the suspensions are stiff. The fuel consumption is not the highest in the class and gave about 23.5 miles per gallon. This is should be fact that the engine is towards more responsive and quick compared to a economy mode engine. The 19 inch wheels with 255 size tyres adds to the handling. Overall, I am happy with the car and would recommend to anyone looking for a family suv/cross over that is powerful, conformable and handles well.
Had an appointment at 8:00am with Sara for an oil change, 11/12/2018...arrived about 7:40am...Sara was not available and Ben took care of me..would take hour to hour an a half...after about an hour Ben informed me I needed a new battery which was under warranty...took about another 45 minutes or so..left dealership around 10:20...experience was fine...of course I wish it would have been faster.
Just purchased one month ago

This is a very comfortable car that drives smoothly. The complaints I have are about the positioning of the dashboard features. It is surprisingly easy to hit the hazards accidentally. The lights don’t turn off automatically when you shut the car off so if you have been driving a car with that feature it takes some retraining. Perhaps the most worrisome discovery is that occasionally the stereo stays on after shutting of the car and if you don’t notice drains your battery. It is a nice car but some design issues.
I went to another dealer and got the run around like you would not believe. A friend recommended Valencia and everything was smooth from start to finish.

The car has met all of my needs. I am looking to start a family and it's a perfect fit for my needs. The trunk space is awesome! The car drives so smoothly and I love the standard settings including bluetooth and the reverse camera is amazing!
Vasny and Beverly were a great help and great sales rep. They were able and willing to work with me and able to work out a great deal. They have been very attentive even after the purchase of vehicle. Great experience
Beautiful looks, some cheaply made parts.

The G.T. model is the one to get due to content. Lots of plastic, though. Had to find & fix various interior rattles (used felt pieces). Very sporty handling- nice highway flyer. Great MPG for size.
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.

I bought this car a year ago. Only got 25,000 miles and I already got a lot of warning lights coming on including master warning light.
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.

I keep finding more to love every time I drive it. Smooth ride, acceleration, roomy, nice sound system and all of the technology of new cars today.
We are repeat customers for Galpin Honda. Mr.Ali referred us to Chaudry Ahmed to work with him. Very helpful, nice, and patient. We are very happy and we will refere our other friends and family to Galpin Honda. Go to Mr. Chaudry.
