I bought my car from this dealesrship, and they made my buying experience a fruitful one. Salesmen were very helpful, and did everything they could to get me a good deal on my car. I have also used them for all the service and repair for my car and I could not be happier.
I had the most amazing experience of buying a new Mazda CX 5 from Mark Brown. He was so professional and so nice. He was not pushy at all and very knowledgeable about this car . I love this car, what a fun beautiful car. Mark even stayed late to show me how to work everything on my car .
We pulled in to look at a new Grand Cherokee Overland I had seen on their website. David Barth appeared immediately and fifteen minutes later we had traded cars. In about an hour it was detailed and ready to go. David was very attentive and through. No high pressure and having to deal with two or three people. Just like dealing with the old time small town dealerships. He did a very good job explaining all the new features to Rose (I seldom drive it). We'll be back.
The salesperson was very nice and respectful. He expressed every question I had and meet my expectations. I will definitely come back if I have any problem with my car and for any service I need on my car.
Recently I shopped for a new Mazda3 Hatchback at Ed Howard in Sarasota after being disappointed by my auto shopping experience in Charlotte County. I worked with Steve Wilkinson and Jon Zimmerman and found both to be friendly, helpful, and genuine. They were able to get the car I wanted from another dealer and offered a price that was well within my target range--no tricks or haggling. Ed Howard is a family owned dealership, and it shows. I met many of the other staff members once I had purchased my car, and they all seemed happy to have my business. So far I think my Mazda3 is a terrific car, and I look forward to working with Ed Howard to keep it in great shape. Thanks again to Steve and Jon for making it easy to choose Ed Howard over other dealers. I'm happy to have a new Mazda3 in the garage beside my 2000 Mazda Miata.
To summarize...I called and spoke with Jon Zimmerman and simply laid out my needs/wants and financial structure. He listened and did not try to steer me away from my initial needs. He provided the precise car I was looking for, in fact a certified pre-owned, which was fine. I am pleased thus far and am spreading the word to all who ask about my beautiful "new" Mazda6. The entire time spent talking model, price and then the closing of docs...maybe totaled 45 minutes. Great job at cutting thru the nonsense and simply providing what the consumer wanted...that was my experience.
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!
