Honest, Painless, Great Deals, and Then Some
November 6, 2018
First off, every person who I dealt with at Sunnyside was extremely welcoming; not in the business sense, but more so the family sense. That's how they treat you at Sunnyside Toyota. Recently my car managed to catch on fire due to an unknown occurrence. On top of this, I had paid in full for that vehicle, and it only had 92K on it. As someone currently studying in college, you can imagine how this put me in a very tight spot, so I really had to do my homework to find a reliable car. After several nights of tireless searching of every car in my price range on Facebook, Cars.com, and Autotrader, Sunnyside Toyota stood out due to overwhelming positive responses. When I searched their inventory online, the prices were right compared to other dealerships. Getting any questions answered was simple through an easy to find, yet not obtrusive chat line. Fortunately, there was enough information about each vehicle that I did not have to waste time with that. When I first arrived at the dealership, I was able to browse many of the cars without getting aggressively haggled like I have at other car dealerships. Patrick Van Deusen was my salesman, and within minutes we had identified several options that fit my needs and budget. Here, at Sunnyside, you do not have to worry about getting stuck with a looks good, but breaks down car. Patrick did his homework on each car I was interested in, and managed to find that the Sonata I originally was interested in would likely need a new engine eventually. Additionally, there was an Impreza failed safety inspection upon a further search, and they are not selling the car now. That's something I can respect. Patrick Van Deusen was friendly throughout, and we had some great conversations, even beyond cars. Patrick allowed me to see a Hyundai Elantra I was interested in which was almost finished being detailed. This car is a 2010 with around 85K on it, and there was no rust whatsoever under the hood, or under the car. The thing ran like a champ, and I knew that I would be hard pressed to find a better deal, as it was listed around 6,900 which was right with the Kelley Blue Book fair purchase price. After being used to dealerships pricing high and leaving you to negotiate, this was a relief for me. Even one of the shop workers, Marcus, engaged me in an uplifting conversation while I was waiting for Patrick to get the keys for a test drive. After taxes, and adding in a theft protection warranty, the total came to just over $7,800 with monthly payments of around $130 a month after money down! This car had no accidents, no recalls, and the Carfax was made readily available to me. I never had any issues during the whole process, and Patrick told me lots of valuable information about all the cars I looked at, and made sure I got the right one. I have already referred this dealership to others, and will continue to do so. If you are considering visiting Sunnyside, do so. You can expect honest business that is not pushy. Places like these are hard to find.
