A bit different than the atypical dealership being in the middle of a large and busy city, but that doesn't stop the customer service from shining through. I'd highly recommend for purchase of a new or used vehicle.
John Chan was patient, listened and took care of us. He wasn't pushy, didn't try to sell us things we didn't want or need, and allowed us to change our minds midway through. We felt listened too and helped throughout the process - and we love the car. All the financial details, the contact with our bank, insurance and DMV was handled really well. We felt very informed about our purchase. Colt Davis deftly walked us through all the final pieces of the process and was great too. The only thing that could be improved was the detailing before we drove away with the car. The focus was on cleaning the exterior. There was still some dirt, caked on things in a cup holder, etc. on the interior.
We started our search for a Prius online using Cars.com and looking at all the available Prii with the trim we wanted in the North Bay. Novato Toyota is closest to our home, and we have two kids and not much time, so I test drove one there, but didn't commit to buying it. The salesmen I talked to were great and there was no pressure. After doing our research, I called Novato Toyota and asked if they would match the price we got online from a few other dealerships. Novato Toyota gave us the best price out of them all -- so easy! But one of the best parts of the entire process was setting the whole deal up over the phone and via email so that when we went in to sign papers, that is all we had to do. With kids in tow we were in and out within 20 minutes, our new Prius was clean and waiting for us, and we drove off before either kid noticed they were bored. It was brilliant! (Since purchasing, we've serviced our Prius with Novato Toyota and it's always an efficient, pleasant experience.) I will buy my next Toyota from Novato Toyota for sure!
We recently purchased a used Toyota from John Larsen. When walking around the lot looking at cars,I usually cringe when a sales person approaches, but John was different. He was very helpful, knowledgeable and not pushy at all. He showed us cars in our budget and did not try to up-sale us! I really appreciate him and would defiantly purchase from him again in the future.
My experience at SFToyota was overall quite positive. The sales person I worked with was Jerel. Unlike some sales people his manner was very easy going and no pressure. I can honestly say the Jerel is the main reason I chose to purchase my car at SFToyota. I am very happy with my new car!
Ricky gave us quality assistance to find our next car...AN SUV !!!!We are ready for our move to Montana, all seasons to go...especially the SNOW!!!!
We love you Ricky!!!! Thank you for making sure we will be safe when we drive.
With Warm Regards,
Christine & Jim
