In the early stages of car shopping for a family-friendly SUV, we stopped by City Auto in Murfreesboro, TN while out there running errands. We were not there anticipating to purchase a vehicle that day. However, things changed.
Steven Ray, the salesman, was the first to greet us. He was not pushy, annoying, or anything like your stereotypical salesman would be in your head. He asked questions and let us talk more than he talked. He was very personable and made our experience outstanding. He provided a thorough answer to ever y question we had. If he didn't know, he made a quick phone call to get the answer we needed. He insisted a test drive in a few different models, just to get an idea of what we were looking for - even though we made it clear we weren't looking to purchase that day. (... I guess that's how they get you)
He walked us through what to expect in the buying process. Gave us little hints to get better pricing and APR.
After the sale, he called us numerous times to ensure that we were happy. A few days after the sale, a few weeks later, then a month or two down the road.
Highly recommend City Auto and especially Steven Ray.
most luxureous car I have owned

This car meets my needs for luxury, space, gas mileage, and performance. I was very pleased to become the owner of this car. It is road ready!
This was a great experience. Salesman was awesome. He worked with me and made sure I was completely satisfied. I would buy another car from them with no hesitation.
I really look good in this car! It's hot.

Love driving our Toyota; gets about 29 mpg. city and feels very safe with the "warning beeps" if a car is coming up alongside you or is too close. when backing up. Legroom is ample front and back. Heated front driver & passenger seats are amazing. Back up camera has me spoiled. Everyone who drives this car tells me how much they love it.
I worked with Jeremy M. He was super helpful and attentive. I was very pleased with the overall experience. I would recommend anyone to see him for their next purchase.
The Avalon is a Winner

We bought this car recently and it is the Limited Edition, and it is a great car. We love the features. It has everything, but still is economical and a very lovely car to drive. We are really very happy with the purchase. It came with an Unlimited Warranty on major systems too, available from certain dealerships.
Choose to work with no other companies only Wholesale inc. Cavender, Lukas, and John are some awesome paperwork. This will be the second vehicle I???ve purchased with this company and as long as they keep people like this I will continue to purchase in the future.
Great ride and powerful.

Top of the line vehicle. Fast as a BMW and a whole lot smoother. Great ride with style galoor. The car for me and my whole family.
This is the second time I have used Wholesale Inc to purchase my car. Both times my experience was great. They listen to your wants and your needs they find you the car that's going to fit you they're very patient and very kind. Great prices on wonderful dependable clean cars.
One of best cars on market

This car is a joy to own and drive. Smooth ride and easy handling. Love the extra features of backup camera, heated seats, and lane changing alarms. Plenty of room in front and back is just as comfortable. Very economical to operate, and never had any problems with upkeep. This is 2nd one I've owned, and best vehicle out there for the money.
Working with jeff Williams has been GREAT. He has been so helpful and on top of things with our new van even long after the purchase was finalized. I really appreciate everything the dealership has done for us
We enjoy our Avalon's - - - and we have purchased

The Avalon's provides excellent riding and quality performance. Indeed quality preformance - - why we have purchased three Avalon's the past 16 years. We are a Toyota family!
Had my trade appraised, a good deal on a used Prius V, plus financing and paperwork finished in under 2 hours on a Saturday!! Chris Elam was my salesmen. Chris was able to answer all my questions(many via text before I arrived), and guide me through the steps. I’ve now purchased 4 Hybrid Prius vehicles and 1 preowned Tundra from John Roberts and have had nothing but great experiences out of the sales department. Additionally I have had most of my service work done there and they always have good coffee and great service.
It was a good car but had some Issues
by Roberto from Pittsburgh
December 13, 2018
My 2001 Toyota Avalon was a great car to own and drive I am a retied person so the Avalon was us for local driving. I bought it in 1/30/2017 It had no major engine issues the problems with the mechanical is the Check Engine Light I was living in South FL at the tine when I relocated to Pittsburgh I had to have the Inspected. In the State of Florida Unfortunately this is not done so when you purchase a car you really don't know that your getting. I recently just put $4981.00 into it because of the Check engine light then after the issue was found and replaced after a few days the Che k Engine light resurfaced again, After all this money to repair and replace I had new struts & springs. two front tires replaced and the alignment don as well as the Tie rod End replaced plus all these sensors and solenoids. so i was getting paranoid and I decided o trade in the car and I purchased a beautiful 2005 Lexus ES 330 a much better car and with a tremendous rating. so if your in the market for a great car my suggestion would be to buy a Lexus ES 300, ES 330 or later model. you will not be disappointed.
That I have to say currently. Good luck in your next purchase. RB of Pittsburgh
After searching for Ford Edges, I located a candidate at this dealership. I emailed them and received a prompt response. Dave McDonald was my contact and sales person. Photos of the car where spot on. We worked out the purchase by phone. Submitted a credit application by secure site on their website. paid a deposit to secure the vehicle over the phone. They contacted me to advise loan was approved and the terms. Drove about 31/2 hours to finalize the deal and take delivery. Very good experience. The dealership's inventory appears to be of good quality across the board. They buy nicer cars for resale. I am very pleased with my purchase and would highly recommend this dealership. Mike in finance was very easy to work with as well.
A comfortable large sedan that looks pretty good.

Everyone in the family is tall and this car has front and rear legroom that you find in very few cars. I wanted to avoid vans and SUV’s so I spent a long time looking for the right Avalon. This model was downsized after 2012 which is very disappointing.
Every time I go to this Nissan I leave a happy customer. I like finding a place i can be consistent with and i believe i have.
My defective Avalon
by Rail from Belton
December 18, 2018
My first problem is that I made a complaint to Toyota with my Jack to my car just broke I had a flat and when my son was jacking up my car the second thing is is that my ABS light just came on out of nowhere then it was my door on the driver side started making popping noise like it was going to break were you wouldn't be able to use any more third thing is is that the gear shift keeps getting stuck on the black plastic piece sticking we're you have problems putting it in park and taking out of drive then the upholstery in the front is fading real quickly and in my trunk the brackets that hold up the trunk one of the bracket has fail off , I am very disappointed I've always thought Toyota cars are good cars but this is not one of them.
Very powerful. Smooth. A joy to own. No issues. Plan to keep at least 10 years. Handles superb. Windows came highly tinted, I recommend this. Automatic windows definitely a premium feature. Lexus maintenance so expensive. Used a local private shop for 90K maintenance. Less than $300.00.
Salesman Gary was very nice and respectful. The Sales Manager was very knowledgeable of different brands. He was very fair in his offer for our trade-in. These two guys made our first time ever visit a great experience. We recommend anyone looking for a car to give them a try you will not be sorry. Great place to do business. Glad we did!
Smooth in the road
January 12, 2019
It runs great can. Lock of hearing from outside when driving 70 miles/hr. feeling very comfortable. It's save, it has a strong body, and wide car.
Drove four hours to reach this dealership which was out of state for us. Pricing of the vehicle and trade in allowance very fair, worth the drive. Salesperson and sales managers very polite and accommodating with very easy buying process. Our only complaint is the not so optimal communication between the sales team, finance team and repair shop. All was well in the end but it could have been a perfect transaction, rather than a lot of back and forth. Overall, we would shop there again but beware of potential miscommunications between their staff.

Excellent vehicle. I only wish the cpo program was equal to that a Lexus. Toyota is a top of the line organization. Will be buying a new Avalon soon.
I walked away feeling as if I received great value in my purchase which I feel is often rare in a car buying experience. My sales rep, Jeremy did a great job to ensure we were happy.
Only car I’ll ever buy!
June 22, 2018
Before buying my first Avalon in 2004, I previously owned a new Cadillac and a Lincoln Continental. As a busy Realtor, a dependable car is a must. I can’t tell you how many dollars I spent on these two cars for repairs. The Cadillac dealer was actually embarrassed. Then I I switched to Toyota and had great experiences. Totally reliable and a minimum of repair. Love them!
Didn???t feel as if I was being pushed. He was friendly and you felt like you control the conversation. I would recommend to anyone.
The best vehicle I have owned in my lifetime
by DommieDoo from Boston, MA

I am 52 yrs old and have owned about a dozen vehicles since I began driving. This is my second Toyota, and I never thought I would drive a better car than my Camry, but then I purchased the Avalon.
It really is a perfect balance of commodity and comfort, backed by the reliability and safety that Toyota is known for. I am 6'5" tall, and am absolutely 100% comfortable all the time. Quiet, comfortable ride. I highly recommend buying an Avalon, whether new or used, you won't be disappointed.
Bishoy Rizk is one of the nicest car salesmen I have ever dealt with. He was very genuine and straightforward and was eager to ensure I was comfortable with the truck I selected as well as the terms of the deal. Doug Hammond showed me many accessories available for my truck, but was not pushy at all. Austin Evans was easy going and straightforward when it came to signing papers. It was a very refreshing sales experience. Would absolutely recommend him and Nissan of Cool Springs for your vehicle needs.
Reliable, comfortable and beautiful!

I've never owned a better car. Luxury meets practicality. Super smooth ride, comfortable seats, all the bells and whistles, reliable and great gas mileage. The only thing that could make it better is if it were AWD for heavy winter mountain living. But it handles snow around town just fine.
Josh Edwards was great. We discussed my wants and need and he adjusted. Josh made sure i was comfortable with my purchase and that was important.
Very reliable car
