I have got to say buying a car from Dave and the folks at the car connection was by far the best buying experience I have had!!
no pushy salesperson, no wasting time. they let me go to the car i liked
asked if i wanted to have a look inside, Dave got the keys, told me a little bit about it, asked if i would like to drive. test drove it and loved it and made the deal without any hassle whatsoever!! they even let me drive off with my new car on a sunday when all banks and credit unions are closed
(i had been pre-approved) and could not confirm.
Dave and Cale, my hats off to you both!!
keep up the good word and expect more
business from me and friends
Thank You both for the wonderful customer service!!

The only flaw I find with this Rav4 is how the cargo area opens. Very inconvenient, opens to side instead of up. Still a good vehicle.
Sales team is awesome.. service & repairs is awful

Oh the service shop really needs to improve. I bought a new xc90 2018 from sandberg volvo; it was a loaner and interiors were smelling bad. Sales guys promised that car will be detailed and there would not be any trace of foul smell. I took the delivery on 10/10/2018 and that foul smell was replaced by another smell that kept giving me migrane. I went back to sandberg and they worked on that odor to replace it with another bad odor that didnt give me migrane but my wife wouldnt sit in the car or take it out with her friends feeling ashamed of that odor. It has been almost a month now and sandberg has still not resolved it. I love the car but find volvo service totally unacceptable. would not recommend others. Such a fine car but poor volvo service is doing a favor to its competition.
Wish I would have kept this car

This was the best car I ever owned. Never had a problem with it. Don't know if I was living my 2nd childhood or what but traded it in on a 2012 Ford Mustang. Of course trading a 2012 for a 2012 I got screwed royalty. As soon as the new car warranty expired on the Mustang many things started going wrong. Had to get rid of it. I certainly learned a lesson in life.
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 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!
Car I own
by Kathryn from Crosby

This car meets my needs and I enjoy driving it. First time i ever had a Toyota. Just wish it was bigger inside. Not as roomy as I would like.
This dealership was top notch! Josiah and Mike went above and beyond to get us a deal that we would feel great about when leaving the dealership. The gave us our options as far as negotiating, but never pushy what-so-ever; which was a great change from other dealership experiences. They followed up with us step by step, and make it a fantastic experience. Lisa, the finance manager was also a pleasure to work with. She was very informative and also didn't push us into anything we weren't comfortable with. I would love to have a chance to buy from them again in the future!! Highly recommend!
Exceeded expectations after 2 years of ownership
by Banker Rich from Columbia, MO
December 21, 2018
Vehicle has been perfect for me. I am satisfied with the performance & comfort. Averaged 34.08 MPG over the 2 years. Safety systems all work correctly. Reliability has been great. Not a high tech guy, but everything works fine. Some competitors have better interiors, but it is OK. Has plenty of room & cargo space. Headlights could be a little stronger & liftgate could raise a little higher. Brakes are good. Gas to electric & back is seamless. With Toyota Care, I have had zero maintenance costs. Have signed up for Toyota Care Plus at a cost of $329 which is a no-brainer for another 2 years as it also covers a new air filter & cabin air filter at 30,000 miles.
Fiat’s service department is great to work with. They listen to your concerns and are quick to fix so you can get back on the road as soon as possible.
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
As always, the service and the experience was excellent. Professional and personable staff with a dedication to excellence. The automobiles are fantastic; however, the staff makes the difference in why we have selected Doug's Cadillac over other dealerships. From the owner to the support staff, this dealership is excellent. We have leased cars from Doug's for many years.
Most fuel efficient car I've owned
by Smiling Bob from Falmouth, Ky
December 16, 2018
This is a very comfortable car to drive. Great power, great fuel economy. The 1 downfall is the steel wheels with plastic hubcaps. It should have aluminum alloy wheels
One of my favorite dealerships ever, fun atmosphere and friendly employees!
there is a reason these have a cult following
by RickRunner from CASA GRANDE
December 27, 2018
the 4Runner is an excellent vehicle, whether you're taking it on off road trails in Sedona or just simply running to the grocery store, this SUV is capable of it all. When purchasing a 4Runner you can rest assured that in the legendary reliability of Toyota and that these vehicles are built to last you hundreds of thousands of miles. the styling is rugged yet classy and i feel it truly has a timeless look that will never go out of style. When I get behind the wheel of my 4Runner i am comfortable with the ride and peace of mind that it can tackle anything I am planning on doing or going.
Josh guided me through the process of buying a CX5. His knowledge of the car and the range of options was excellent and his patience was endless. He was really busy on a Saturday with a lot of customers but he gave me all the time I needed and provided all the information I asked for and a whole lot more. His professionalism was a real contrast with some sales people at rival dealerships.
Best truck on the market!
by estew from san diego
January 10, 2019
This truck met all of my needs, plenty of room for me, my wife and our three children. Power was great while towing a 22ft Boat and agile enough to cruise through the Rockies with ease!
The process was simple. They honored my request no to shop my loan around. I am very happy over all. From start to finish it just couldn't have gone any easier.

The Camry has been a reliable vehicle except when the hybrid battery died after approximately 80,000 miles. Apparently, 80,000 is the usual lifetime of those batteries. Toyota replaced it for a small fee since it was just out of the warranty period. Those batteries normally cost $5K to replace. Other than that, a great car and no complaints!
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.
I bought a car there 3 years ago. It was an older vehicle but was well maintained and was an ideal price. It is now timw for an upgrade and I will certainly be going there first.
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.
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!
Most reliable car
by Commuter from mass
January 9, 2019
Aweosome, super reliable car! over 210,000 miles and it's still going strong! Gave me no trouble the whole time of ownership. You wont regret owning one!
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!
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.
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.
I had a great experience buying a new car. The salesman that helped me was Gus, he was very professional, friendly, answered all the questions I had and made my day in the Chevrolet of Bellevue dealership a quick one. He was very helpful in finding me the right car and he succeeded! I am now an owner of a 2017 Chevrolet Malibu, I would recommend him and this dealership to anybody looking for a new car.
This car has been great and without any problems
by kgog from Buffalo

Great handling and lots of room with the third row seats. Great looks and lots of fun. Love the black. Heated seats are awesome. Great in the winter
My wife and I had been shopping around at various Toyota dealers and decided to check out Toyota of Seattle. We were quickly introduced to Mirek who was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable of Toyota in general as well as the Toyota 4Runner which is the vehicle we were looking at. Mirek was more interested in finding the vehicle that was right for us instead of just making a sale. He took the time to find out a little about us. Between Mirek's knowledge and genuine care our overall experience with Toyota of Seattle was truly a great one.
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!
We had been looking for a car with excellent mileage. Rose M at Toyota of Seattle helped us find it. We are super happy with our Prius Premium, Thanks to her knowledge about the car. The entire experience was Great due to her ability to present the car, take care of all the paperwork, and get us out the door. Many thanks.
Love my 4runner
by MamaJ from Olathe Co
January 8, 2019
This is a good reliable vehicle that holds its value. Love the 4wheel drive, and camera. If I had one thing to change it would be the back window wiper, it only cleans 3/4 of the window.
We went to Toyota if Seattle down in Sodo to purchase a car. Michael Boza helped make the process as easy going as possible. Michael has great communication, which I appreciate very much. He was thorough when discussing all of our options, and we left very happy in our new car.
So glad I switched to the Highlander.
by TynetB from MD

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.
