I've lived in So. Lake Tahoe for over 30 years and had my last Subaru for over 18 years. My 1997 Subaru was the most reliable, gas efficient, low maintenance, and “excellent in the snow” car I ever had! However, it was time for a new car. I did my research and looked for the best deals and found that Michael Hohl had the best selection and best prices around! I also know that they are familiar with California DMV requirements. I was pleased that their sales person did not pressure me and I was able to “just look around” and test drive the car I was interested in. There was just a little issue with the vehicle I purchased, nevertheless, the sales manager graciously corrected the problem! I highly recommend Michael Hohl Subaru! I'm more than happy and very satisfied with my purchase!

This car met all my needs, is stylish, comfortable and has great gas mileage. I love the car! It’s a great car if you have dog!
I'm surprised to see the negative reviews on for Michael Hohl Subaru. We bought our first car from Michael Hohl Honda and got nothing but amazing service. We decided it was time for a new car and were deciding Honda CR-V and a Subaru. We decided to check out the Subaru’s first. We went in on Saturday at noon and here’s how things went for us. Sean Lyman was the salesperson who helped us out. He was very knowledgeable about the Subaru’s without being pushy. We were leaning towards a Forester based on internet research but checked out the Outback as well. Sean asked us what we wanted out of a car and explained the difference between the two cars. We test drove both but fell IN LOVE with the Outback. Next was deciding which color/package we wanted. We went with a dark grey w/the all-weather package. Let me tell you our car ROCKS! Sean wasn’t pushy throughout our whole time on the lot making up our minds. He gave us privacy when we needed it and was there when we had questions. When it came time to make the deal and discuss our trade in. Sean’s Sales Manager came over, Bryan Worch. He was very nice and was wonderful to work with. We talked about our trade in which was a 2007 GMC Acadia. He gave us an AMAZING deal. Better than we thought we would get and then it came time to run the numbers. We had a number in our head that we wanted to be (like most people). We were still deciding between 2 of the Outbacks at this point so Bryan ran the numbers for both for us and with different down payment options. He spent a lot of time with us talking about our needs from the car as one of our picks did not include the all-weather package. After looking at the numbers and talking to Bryan we picked the all weather package. We never once felt pushed to buy the car. Bryan (like Sean) knew when to give us our privacy and talk but was there when we had questions. We really appreciated the time he took to make sure we looked at all our options and felt comfortable with the numbers. Sometimes when buying a car you get the feeling that the sales people just want to sell you the most expensive car with all the bells and whistles but we never once felt that here. They always talked about what we wanted and needed out of a car and most importantly what we felt comfortable paying! Speaking of paying, we moved over to the finance department and worked with Nick Reinhardt. He was quick and efficient. We had already been at the lot for a while now and he didn’t waste time lolly gagging. He went over all our warranties with us and talked about some of their extended plans. We originally weren’t going to purchase one but after looking at the prices and the length of them we decided on an additional one because the value was there. Like Bryan and Sean he gave us our privacy but was there to answer questions. He also ran several numbers for us so we could really see our options and what worked best for us. We never felt pushed to buy the extended plan, we bought it because for us piece of mind is worth it. The guys who cleaned the car up for us did a great job. Being as it was a brand new car they didn’t have much to do but there was a few scratches behind the door handles (people when opening car doors be easy for pete sakes someone is going to buy that sooner or later!). They were able to get them all out and cleaned up!! Woohoo!!!! As you can see, we had an amazing car buying experience. Even though we’ve only had the car for a day, we will be Subaru owners for life. The car could sell itself but everyone we dealt with at the dealership went beyond for us.
Great car for commuting and heading for adventure

This is my adventure car. It is great in the rain and snow and for heading to the mountain trails. The ground clearance is great for the rough mountain roads. Love it.
Buying process took longer than anticipated but the end result was worth it. Raffy handed me over to Rebecca and I was very pleased with her service.
Basically a good vehicle with bothersome flaws

Mechanically sound, good fit and finish. Excellent fuel economy for an awd suv, excellent safety assist features (Eyesight)
Horrendous user interface for all infotainment - I have never sworn so much at a car - all electronic controls were counter intuitive. Some were just plain stupid such as when putting car in reverse, as rear view camera comes on there is no way to mute stereo which is set at same level/station as when the car was last turned off! Even the window controls operated the opposite way I have been accustomed (down position of switch feels like it should be up, etc.)
Another con, I found the seat cushions to be too short (inadequate length under thigh towards the knee) for long trips.
Very odd that a car that could have been so good, struck out in such basic, easily correctable ways. They should fire their electronics designer and borrow some seat ergonomics know-how from the Swedes or Germans - and they will have a very good car!
Holly did any awesome job from start to finish. She did whatever it took to get us the best deal possible working with what we had. She was very informative and touched all the bases and made sure we were happy with everything. Great job Holly!
Nice vehicle, we like it.

Our 2017 Subaru Outback limited 2.5 has been a very practical and reliable vehicle for us. Extremely safe with eyesight safety suite. However, the interior needs to be a bit more luxurious. The engine, road and wind noise were basically unacceptable. I remedied that by extensive soundproofing on teh doors, floor and cargo area.
Israel was a great salesman. He answered all our questions and showed us all the Toyota Rav4???s on the car lot. He explained all the different models and their features. Very nice and no pressure to choose a specific model. Michael was our finance person and he was super friendly and made us feel very comfortable. We went through all the paperwork in minimal time. I would highly recommend Dolan Toyota to anyone shopping for a new car. This dealership is definitely A+++ and the whole car buying process was amazing. Judith Stephenson
Great Touring Car!

The Subaru Outback 3.6 Touring car is comfortable and has all the bells and whistles including back up cameras, hands free phone calling, great sound system, sun roof/moon roof, leather seats, climate control, keyless entry etc. I love this car and how powerful it is in going up hills.
Dolan Toyota gave us the best car buying experience ever. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable, treated us like family. They went out of their way to help us in our purchase. I highly recommend Dolan Toyota and have already been telling friends about the quality of service we received. Rate them a 15 on a scale of 1-10!!!
super reliable and value for money

Great vehicle, spacious, safe and excellent handing even in poor weather conditions due to symmetric AWD. Got excellent gas mileage for an AWD (29 mpg HW)
these guys have been extremely helpful, they had the car I looked at put in the shop for selling ready but could not sell due to electrical issues....they have very knowledgable staff and did a great job taking the time to explain everything to me and my family
I was in mammoth and my trunk latch broke right before a snow storm on thanksgiving weekend and it wouldnt close at all. Everybody was closed and I was far from home and very worried. Luckily I called Toyota in Carson on Monday morning and they were nice enough to have me come in and get the problem fixed right away without an appointment and it was miraculous. this is all thanks to Rolando who was working there. they got the part ordered and they fixed the car the following day and I was on the road. I really appreciated that because I was in a bit of a situation I couldn't drive very far with a broken trunk and usually it takes a while to schedule an appointment so I give these guys an amazing person and consider themselves a lifesaver.
