I am known for being kind of thrifty with my money, so my daughter and wife were shocked when I bought a new CX 5 from Alberto and then, after liking it so much, I went back the next day and bought a CX 3 for me (CX 5 was for wife). I think Alberto was surprised too, but he came in on his usual day off with no commitment from me to purchase a car. I think he saw something in my eye and he knew he could sell me a second car. He is very pleasant to deal with and most of all, he knows what he is selling, he knows the technology, the engines, weather it is a CVT transmission or which models have a turbo. As a retired engineer, I might ask a couple more slightly technical questions than the average person but salesman should know that stuff, Alberto does. He is very friendly and low pressure. I am glad to have met him and very glad to have bought two cars from him. Alberto says Mazda has been good to him, I hope so because they don't all come like Alberto!
A perfect fit for me

2015 rav 4. It’s the right size. All wheel drive. Efficient. Capable in the winter. A little road noise but fixable with dynamat in the doors.
I had already researched hybrid vehicles and have owned two so I already had picked out this v eff hickey for a rest drive. Both my previous hybrid cars, a civic and a Prius, have/had smaller engines, so the added power of a larger engine felt nice. Very roomy and comfortable.
I was stunned that the overall dealership score on Cars.com was so low. I bought a new 2017 VW Passat here at the the start of March and even with the credit challenges I presented the sales team was able and willing to work with me on getting me into the car I wanted at the terms I agreed to. They had my deal lined up before I walked in the showroom on Friday and in only a couple of hours I was driving home in the new car.
The only thing I dinged them for on the buying process was the support staff did Federal Express my financing to the wrong bank which did lead to a few days of delay. But other than that minor blip these guys are amazing.

This vehicle was fantastic to me! It provided safety and reliability with excellent gas mileage. Also over the course of 11 years all it required was routine maintenance and a new alternator and radiator, you really can’t beat that!
Great dealership. No pressure, didn't get swarmed by salesman, and was very fast during the whole process. I'm in love with my new 2018 Honda civic. Cal was awesome and Tim was great! I would definitely buy there again!!!
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.
Platinums cash for cars program was awesome we sold are lexus for $2,500 more than carmax offered and two other dealers offered. See the owner Robert
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.
Friendly, fair pricing and no pressure. I test drove on my own and there was no urgency to buy. I worked with Frank. We negotiated over the phone, took less than 10 mins, and Frank had my paperwork ready upon arriving and took less than 15 mins to sign. Unfortunately, after taking the 2015 A4 premium plus with manual transmission home, the pedals gave me issues with my knees. I talked to Frank and Stu (owner), both gave me a fair price to return to A4 for another purchase. These guys are classy salesmen. Again, their pricing is fair and there is no pressure to buy.
Ample room for a growing family.

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.
A year ago we bought a used Jeep Wrangler from Stu and are totally satisfied with the purchase and performance. Our son is relocating back to Seattle and no longer needs the Jeep Wrangler. After trying to sell instantly to a couple of dealers listed online, we soon discovered their instant cash offer was a ploy. These dealers upon inspection used every tactic to justify a low ball sell value. What a frustrating disappointment!
We contacted Stu to see if he would offer to buy back the jeep. He provided an offer based upon the Jeep being in the same condition as when we purchased it from him. We accepted Stu’s offer, and we were very pleased the transaction was hassle free. The entire experience was again another great experience. We highly recommend buying from and/or selling to Auto Connections in Bellevue. Stu is awesome to deal with!
My 4th Toyota truck. Thats how good they are.

I love Toyotas. Very reliable, easy on gas. Dependable. Could use a bit more power but not a real hinderance. Will give this truck to my grandson next year and buy a new one for me. Drove Chevrolet and Fords in the 60's, 70's and 80's, now only Toyota.
Great. I had to gave a tow hitch installed and roof racks. They did a great job and were very speedy
Best choice for us
by Mandy from Tyler, TX
January 12, 2019
We needed a vehicle with a 3rd row. The Highlanders received excellent reviews on other sites for the interior space, reliability, fuel efficiency, among other features that were important to us. So far, we are incredibly pleased with our decision and know we will have this vehicle for a LONG time. Toyotas run forever and with very few issues. We had a Corolla previously and never had a single issue in the 8 years owned.
From start to finish, Tim Staggestad and his GM, provided me with a customized experience like I have never seen during other car lease or purchase processes. They delivered on every promise and every deadline; and in the end, I can say I made a couple new friends!
So glad I switched to the Highlander.

I previously leased a Ford Edge. It was a nice SUV, but the Highlander is better. While both basically offer the same features, the Highlander surpasses the Edge in technology. I’m so happy I made the switch.
Service on vehicles has always been good and done timely.

I come here regularly for service and recently to explore replacing an older Toyota Sienna. The salesman was informative, new the product features, and was low-pressure but thorough. I elected at this time to maintain the older Sienna and replace it at a future date, but will very likely start at this dealership when I do decide to purchase.
I am delighted with this car

The efficiency of this car is amazing. I am very pleased I bought it. I had a pleasant experience with the dealership and sincerely recommend the Toyota Prius.
I was very happy with the purchase of my new Toyota at Heartland Toyota! The sales department were professional and low pressure. I will recommend this dealership and the people I worked with to my friends and family.
Most reliable car I have ever owned
by JZ from Sartell Mn

I had a long list of requirements and the 4Rummer has meet and exceeded any and all expectations. Would definitely recommend this one to a friend
They were very polite and helpful allowed me to just look and ask questions. No stress or pressure. When it came time to go over numbers they were low pressure and got straight to the point.
Replaced My Truck
by Roxy from Oceanside California
January 14, 2019
This car was a great transition from my Nissan Frontier Truck. I was looking at Ford Flex, Ford Explorer and Nissan Murano. The expectations I have are all satisfied in the Highlander. Needed a large enough car to haul my family around, and my ton and a half of clay and equipment.
Last week I bought a used car in this company. When I go home. But company didn't give me to take the car because I no full insurance. This time that dealer go home. I don't know to do.but this time that guy is NeIL Ligam to help me. He is very good guy and very good service.

The car handles great. I feel safer in this car than I did in my Jeep Cherokee! I have almost 100k on the car and it still has the original brakes! Would recommend to anyone looking fir a reliable car that will last for a long time
Great service. Everyone was really friendly and easy to work with. We drove from Sunnyside Wa for the car and it was well worth the drive. Car was exactly what they said and what we wanted. Definitely will do business with them again in the future.
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.
Got the car I wanted and at fair price. Everyone was great to deal with. No complaints.
Amazing vehicle, excellent milage.

Gets 50 mpg on highway, and have hit 62 mpg when driving in by lanes at 35mph. If charged it gets 110 mpge. The car can work in pure hybrid mode also if you do not want to charge. Having larger battery, the batter deterioration is much less noticeable.
Aj,Todd,Dennis and Han were awesome great customer service and helped me find my dream car . Ramone got me financed and I left the same day with a new Mercedes c250
The reliable Prius
by David W from Milford KS
January 11, 2019
The prius is such a dependable car. I constantly get atleast 50 plus MPG. I have taken this vehicle on many long drives and the only real complaint I have are the seats. After about 30 minutes, my butt hurts. Once I replaced the seats It was much better. The ride is smooth and when using power mode its pretty fast. The amount of money I have spent on maintenance is minimal. New tires and oil changes and I have 130,000. I was a little skeptical about buying a hybrid since the hybrid batteries are 3-5 grand. But many companies are selling them for much less so replacing the hybrid battery isnt a worry anymore. The brakes are a little touchy at times but thats the only mechanical issue I have. Very roomy on the interior.
Excellently fair priced vehicles, and G really sought to help me out regardless of past credit ordeals. He was professional, and a sincere dealer. Glad I did business with Smart Motors.

We purchased this Highlander in 2002 and have 267000 miles on it. It has always been one of our favorites. Even though we own several newer vehicles we often drive the Highlander and are only getting rid of it because we have too many vehicles. We just drove it to Southern California 1,000 miles round trip and love it.
