I live in New Jersey but was able to find the car I wanted through cars.com. I had a great experience dealing with Santa Barbara Auto Group. I dealt with CJ, who was very responsive. I would definitely recommend this dealer to anyone looking for a new car.

I thoroughly enjoy the Mercedes brand and yesterday I purchased a new 2018 SUV. It was big enough for all my needs and handles like a sedan. There is plenty of head and legroom in the front and back. I also appreciate all the safety features included in the model. Although the car is only six months old, I purchased it as "used" and saved a considerable sum. $$$ :)
My son's recent car purchase at the Santa Barbara Auto Group - Acura Dealership went extremely smooth. Our salesman Mike Smith took care of everything for him and his first car purchase after graduating from college. He even held the car for him while he waited for his credit union loan to go through. I cannot thank him enough. We had a terrible experience with another out of town dealership and were so glad to be able to find a car and purchase it in our hometown. There are a lot of unethical used car sales people out there, but Mike is not one of them. He made sure that a young novice auto purchaser understood the process from beginning to end. Once he brought the check in, it took about 30 minutes to finalize the entire purchase. Mike has even checked in with us a couple of times since our purchase to make sure everything is still fine.
Most nice car I had

The car met my needs and dreams and very conftable it has all luxuries I’m looking into it all future in side I need to learn more plus the dealer Ecarone was very nice from the general manager Sam to ash the sales person they did a very nice job
I used cars.com to scout for a pre-owned Porsche and found an interesting 2008 Carrera C2 offered at Santa Barbara Auto Group. I spoke to the sales rep over the phone and based on that conversation, I visited the dealership. Asking price was attractive given the the car's; appearance, mileage, equipment & condtion and at the right price point to start negotiation. The sales rep, Shane was knowledgible and friendly and the facilities impecable. I found the vehicle was as advertised however, I ultimately decided to pass due to the color of the car (Metalic Ruby Red) ...Lots of these these cars are available so I'll keep looking to find exactly what I want. I would certainly entertain purchasing a car from this dealership if the right car were available.

Love the styling and features of this vehicle. Long trips will be more enjoyable. Just the right size to meet our needs for any occasion.
We found a car offered by this dealership on Cars.com and started discussing purchase options and price via email with their representative Chad Deering on a Saturday. He was friendly, professional and very accommodative to working with our needs and budget. So much so that the next morning we drove all the way from Pasadena to Santa Barbara to check out the car, enjoyed a lovely day in Santa Barbara followed by a smooth, no pressure experience with Chad and their finance department manager. In less than 2 hours of arriving at the dealership, getting in a relatively long test drive and doing the paperwork we were on our way back home with the car we wanted, all detailed, full of gas and us as happy customers. I usually dread going to a dealership to buy a car but Chad and the staff at Santa Barbara Auto Group were fantastic. Bill F. - Pasadena, CA

I have owned 3 different Mercedes and hands down this is absolutely my all time favorite. I would consider purchasing another as soon as I’m ready & know how much my family & friends are enjoying theirs’
We just came in to see an F-Type that was on their showroom floor in the color (Black-Amethyst) we had spec'd out (very difficult color to find on a lot). It was a V8 model and we had spec'd out the V6. Within the short time we were there the V8 model price had actually been reduced to a price $3,000 lower than the V6 with all and more of the options than we had originally spec'd out! Our sales representative new the car inside and out, was not pushy and has gone beyond the call of duty in order to get this deal done. Thank you!
Solid reliable and safe car with a Brand name.

This car is small SUV,with a prestigius name, Very solid feel from opening the door to sitting yin the drivers seat with a quite interier. Acceleration was smooth and quick in city driving but noisy on Highway. Trunk space is tight. Exterior finish is nice.
