We needed to replace our 2014 Forester that was hit and totaled just before the 2019 Foresters were arriving in showrooms. Checked the Internet and only two dealerships within 200 miles had the color and trim level we wanted on order. The local Cincinnati dealer we had visited must have figured they had us over a barrel and quoted an Eprice that was the same as the MSRP. Phoned Joe at Royal Subaru on the Eastside in Bloomington IN to see what they wanted for the Forester they had on order. He asked what we thought would be a reasonable price and said he thought he could meet our offer but would have to check with his manager who happened to be sitting next to him--didn't even put us on hold--just covered the phone and got the okay. The entire negotiation took less than 3 minutes and saved us over $3,000. The hardest part was waiting two weeks for the first of the 19's to arrive. Joe also spent nearly an hour on a chilly day without a coat showing us how to work all the bells and whistles on our new and improved Forester when we picked it up. An exceptional experience from start to finish.

Can't go wrong with toyota. I had one for over 20 years before and hoping for another 20 out of this one. Good solid design.
I went to the tent sale at the fairgrounds, after the manager called me that they had a pre-owned Prius C come in, after I had called a couple of days earlier looking for one. Larry, the salesman, was very helpful and educated me on the Prius, and helped me through the decision making process. They gave me a fair trade-in for my care, and negotiated the car down to a price I was happy with. Very professional and easy to work with.
Best gas mileage
by SamanthaK from Oxford, Mississippi
January 1, 2019
After researching lots of cars and SUVs I decided on another Prius. I had bought my daughter a used 2009 Prius with under 200,000 miles and we drove from northern Mississippi to eastern Florida and back for $72. As a retiree on a budget I need a reliable car with great gas mileage. It also has adequate cargo room for all our stuff. Her prius lasted to over 300,000 miles until the catalytic converter went out. So I’m hoping my 2015 lasts as long as hers did. It is a bit noisy but so was my Nissan minivan so I’m okay with that. This Prius is beautiful inside and out and I love all the tech features. The navigation system could be easier to use but perhaps after I learn how to use it, it won’t be an issue. It does have voice controls too that I’ll learn at some point.
I was looking to trade 2 cars and get one car payment. I thought this would be impossible really but Royal South came thru for me! I ended up buying a 2018 RAV4 at a much lower monthly payment. The Toyota cash back helped but I was still very pleased with the trade in values Royal gave me. Thanks again! You guys are the best!

I have been in the market for a minivan for quite some time. I thought I wanted a Honda Odyssey until test drive one. I like the way it looks on the exterior but was not impressed with the the way it drove or the space in the interior. Also, Odyssey’s no longer have a black leather interior and that is impratant to me having four kids. I also test drove a newer Chrysler Pacifica. I liked the way it drove but disliked the space in the interior.
When I saw and test drove the Toyota Sienna SE Premium. I knew this was the vehicle for our family. Very stylish and sharp looking exterior but the interior is what we really enjoyed. Black leather interior seats, lots of space for passengers. It could seat up to 8 adults comfortably. It drives like a car with great pick up and can take sharp turns. Plenty of cup holders and storage areas. Very wide blueray player for the kids. Moon roof is nice. Many safety feature and the design of the dash is very luxurious. Super impressed and really enjoy driving this vehicle.
I live in Chicago, IL and I was referred to Royal South Toyota by another Chicagoan. At first I was hesitant about purchasing a car outside of Illinois but so glad I did it! After back and forth communication via phone calls and emails, Royal South Toyota worked with me and I got a great deal for a 2018 Toyota Corolla SE (black) which included 0% APR for 60months. I compared the entire deal with other Toyota dealerships in Chicago and Royal South had the best one!!
I traveled to Bloomington, IN to finalize the purchase. I traveled there because I wanted to see the car in person before finalizing anything however Royal South also offers delivery for a couple of hundred dollars if you can't travel to the dealership. Once I arrived, everyone was kind and welcoming to me. Also, the vehicle was ready to go- washed, shiny, gorgeous and in superb condition! I couldn't have been any happier!! The process was quick and easy since I had agreed upon a deal before arriving there.
The entire experience of purchasing the vehicle was EXCELLENT. The dealers have excellent customer service! I'm very satisfied with my purchase. Special thanks to Andy Long and James Wright for making my purchase happen! I highly recommend this dealership to ANYONE, even if you live outside of Indiana!!
Don't think about it twice! Go get your vehicle at Royal South Toyota, you will not regret it!
Most people are whiners and can’t drive

Bought a 2018 Camry SE left over in ultra white with black interior. So far I love it. I’ve read many online complaints about the 8 speed Trans. I’ve had 0 problems with it to date. The car does learn your driving habits so it may take a few hundred miles for both you and your vehicle to learn each other. It’s quiet smooth and handles lovely. Very sharp looking. I’ve owned Honda’s Chevys Fords Chrysler’s Etc. been driving anything with wheels for 20 years, this is my first Toyota. I was going to go with the 2019 Accord but HATE the new Fast back design and the fact they only come in turbo which cooks your engine over time turned me off to them. I opted for the Toyota’s Camry SE instead. I Love the new sporty look and interior and the engine is more than powerful and peppy without all that turbo nonsense. My biggest complaint in there’s no heated seats in the 2018 SE other than that it’s a well designed sporty reliable car . The technology is unparalleled to anything I’ve have had personally. The Entune takes some getting use to but I have no major complaints or objections. No CD player but who cares with the way music is on our phones now. Might as well have a record player installed next to your 8 track deck if that’s what you want !😂 if you want a reliable car with a great reputation I suggest get one . Happy Hunting to you.
I will always be a Toyota person - thanks to Royal! They are gracious, timely, helpful - and don't make anyone feel bad about asking "stupid" questions.

On the positive side, love the engine and transmission. Tuned exhaust is just right - a low growl but not obnoxious. Seat comfor is so- so, especially after a couple of hours behind the wheel. Entertainment system is a big disappointment? especially since this is a Limited edition. Sound quality is average and the Entune system should be dropped immediately in favor of Apple and Google offerings. Toyota is a little slow incorporating technology- not sure why. Still, I bought this truck for its above average reliability history and hope to have it for a long time.
I couldn't have been more pleased with the customer service I got at Royal South. I contacted them after I found a truck online and Andy got back to me right away. He was very helpful and great to deal with. I drove three hours to get there and decided even though the truck was a great deal and exactly what they told me it was, I was actually not ready to purchase a truck. Larry, the salesperson, Andy, and everyone that I dealt with were very understanding and professional. When I am ready to buy, I will be willing to drive to Royal South again.

The all wheel drive along with its driveability options makes this a well rounded vehicle. Proven with the latest winter storm! Rides high like a SUV should but isn't top heavy! This is my first Toyota bought for my wife and it has me shopping for myself.
I was in the market for a 2006 Toyota Highlander with low mileage in good condition. I did a local search in Franklin, TN and could not find a Highlander that I was satisfied with. After broadening my geographic area, I encountered Royal South Toyota Scion and found the perfect car. Ryan McElhinney gave me excellent customer service from our first encounter. We emailed and spoke on the phone and he patiently answered all of my questions. I made the decision to travel 4+ hours to Bloomington, IN from Franklin, TN and it was worth it. It was the best car buying experience I have ever had!
New (used 2016) Tundra owner
by Derwood from Weaverville, NC
November 10, 2018
Switched from an 06 Chevy 2500 4WD to Tundra 4WD. Haven't owned long enough to really say much except we own a Prius with 115,000 miles and a Tacoma with 175,000 miles so I'm confident it will live up to my expectations. Not the best looking trucks but if it doesn't cost as much as the Chevy to maintain for 10 years I;ll be happy. The 5.7 engine did get 19.2 MPG on the 200 mile drive home. That alone is impressive!
Had an excellent experience, they worked with us on price online so we knew what we were getting when we drive over. We did have to wait on the finance guy because there were multiple customers there but the lounge was comfortable and they offered us refreshments and free popcorn. We were very happy with our salesman Ryan and the online help from Andy.
My second Prius
by Prius baby from Redmond WA
November 15, 2018
It is a very good car especially for fuel saving, comfort and reliability. I drive 2x as much as the average driver vlocking 24k miles in a year. This is my second prius. I drive the first one to 200,000 miles plus and was enticed to new bluetooth technology for safety and a lot more safety features for increased visibilty, parking assist and other assistive features.
Everyone was patient and courteous while I decided which model I thought best for me. I was given alone time to look around several times and ample opportunity to test drive. The whole experience was very nice.
Great reliable car
by humdinger from Greenville, SC
January 14, 2019
My wife used this Camry for her work in sales. Many highway miles were driven without a let down or failure ever. Great reliable car. Easy on gas at about 33 mpg highway.
I had a 2010 Volvo S60 T6 that got the front end crunched and I took it to Royal South's Collision Center and they fixed it perfectly. Then I bought a Mazda 6 and it got side swiped so I took it to them and it was fixed perfectly. But before they fixed it I traded it in on a Mazda CX-9 because I needed the space for mountain bikes and my brother is a Mazda Master Mechanic there. I will always take my collision repairs to Royal South Toyota, they are the best!
Tacoma 2017 amazing truck
by Rober Rivero from Houston Tx
January 5, 2019
My Tacoma 2017 is much more than I expected, 48000 miles, it feels like new, considering that my other car is a Corolla 2018 zero miles, feels the Tacoma with the same level of comfort and manageability. I love how it works in all weather conditions and the power of this four-cylinder engine, power and low consumption, ideal for my lifestyle as I work away from my home driving about 66 miles a day and gas consumption is ideal. Apart from being accompanied by several very comfortable options such as being able to connect my phone to the central audio system and play my songs, making calls in hands-free, I was not a truck lover but without a doubt this Tacoma has changed my
Good service and competitive pricing. I trust their recommendations.
Upgraded from a 2010 to a 2016
by Loves Toyota’s! from Denver, co
January 12, 2019
I loved my 2010!!
-no power port in the hatch area
-less cargo room and cubbies to store things
-doesn’t do as well in the snow
-has more power
-overall handles better
-the base model has some bells and whistles
I love Toyota’s and have always been impressed! It has taken me a little bit to get use to the new blind spots. Overall love it!
I love my 4Runner. My last one have over 200k miles and almost no maintenance issues. This one seems to be the identical sequel. It goes everywhere I need to go and meets all of my outdoor activity needs.
I’v owned several Toyota’s and their always dependable. The RAV4 gets decent gas mileage, is easy to get in and out of, and it’s great in snow! It comfortable to ride in and everything is laid out nicely. It’s a solid overall vehicle.
The fact that it's not what I wanted and that was the fault of the dealer is not part of the review for the car itself. If it had everything that I had wanted for features it would be perfect but the overall style, comfort, handling, and reliability of the car I believe are great!
I purchased my second car from Bland's Truck and Car Sales and once again had a great experience!! Both cars have been great quality. Jason is very welcoming and I never felt like I couldn't ask questions. I would definitely recommend getting your next car or truck from Jason at Bland's Auto because they haven't let me down once!
Reliable and useful, but not worth so much money
by HowAboutNo from Fort Wayne, IN
January 7, 2019
I love the car and it's mileage and usefulness. I just don't think the vehicle is worth the near $300/month I pay and the over $350/month I will pay once I purchase it out of the lease. There is no real wow factor to the vehicle. It's a basic point-a-to-point-b vehicle that doesn't inspire greatness or rampant want/need.
Daniel was great to work with. We were looking to purchase a truck from Bland's Truck and Car Sales and had made a deposit. Due to some unforeseen expenses we had to back out of the transaction. Bland's Truck and Daniel were understanding and returned our deposit with no hesitation. We definitely plan to work with them as soon as we are ready to make a purchase.
The Truck of my dreams
by JMAlamo from Puerto Rico , Bayamón 00957
January 5, 2019
The truck that Falls the measurements belong to my family . And the colores of the moment. Lines Good , excelent motor. And big rims
Cody was our sales person and laughed right along with us around every turn and bend through the process. The rest of the team we encountered were just as great. For a time that can be pretty exciting yet stressful they all attempted to make it the least stressfull they could. Cody and the rest of the team were very accomidating when our minds changed or found ourselves in over our heads...and best of all...no pressure to buy something we couldn't afford just to make a sale. If we said it was beyond our budget they worked with us to find something we were going to be happy with that was within our budget. Great Job guys!!!
Reliable, Comfortable Car
by Sue H. from Mountain View, CA

I purchased my 2012 Camry XLE in 2015 when it had 26,400 miles. It now has over 79,000 miles and is running like a charm. I drove it to Alaska in 2016, a 7500 mile round trip, with no problems. I feel safe in this car and will consider another one after it reaches 250,000 miles!
