Dealership responded immediately to my e-mail inquiry and had the car pulled up front for a test drive when I arrived 45 minutes later. My salesperson Tom was easy to work with and attentive to my needs. The negotiation and financing steps were what I would describe as typical in the car buying process (was pleased that they were willing to work with me). Overall process was quick and relatively painless and I was able to drive away in my new/used car only a few hours later. Love the car, only issue I've run into is that they over-tightened the license plate and stripped some of the screw mounts out of the license plate bracket. This made the task of replacing the dealership plate frame with a non-descript one (prefer not to be a rolling advertisement for them) more difficult than it needed to be. Would still definitely consider buying another vehicle from them.

I would avoid this place if you are a woman trying to buy a used car. 4 different people required to be on taking a test drive (actually 5, as I asked for info on an extended warranty). Their contact person was perfectly helpful over the phone but unfortunately told me the car I was interested in was available, when it was not (I'm sure an honest mistake and they did contact me about it several hours later) He also did point out another one on their lot that I might be interested in so all was not lost. I was to meet with Alexis, whose purpose I have yet to figure out other than being pretty. I then met with the sales person who as is typical could not make any decisions without talking to his manager. Both of these two were quite the chauvanists and though I mentioned several times that I was buying the care for myself and my friend was just accompanying me they kept talking to him. It was ridiculous. At the end, even though not 2 minutes earlier I had looked the manager in the eye, put my hand on my chest and said, 'I am the one buying the car', he went over to his desk to get his business card and gave it to my friend!! Okay, I've been there before with this ridiculousness in the car buying world and decided I would just swallow it and deal with just trying to get a good price for the car and be done with it. Unfortunately the manager was unwilling to do any sort of bargaining with me....despite the fact that I was told point blank by the first contact, 'we have had this car on the lot for over a year and its likely to go to auction soon...you should just make an offer on it'. The manager confirmed he had had it for over a year, but said he couldn't come down in the price. Clearly he did not want to deal with a woman.

We made arrangements to buy a car and pick it up the following day with the sales person, the next day the car was sold to someone else.

The car I looked at was in pretty bad shape considering the price. The tires on the car were not drivable in my mind. To me these guys seem a little shady. I wouldn't waste time on them

We went in to see Frank Woldo and he was very frindly and not pushy like many salesmen are. He showed us the Lucerne and took it for a test drive. We are very happy with him, but the dealership dosen't want to come off the price much. We feel with the research we have done the car is about fifteen hundred over price.

seen the ad for the 2011 Toyota camry xle for $11,900. Drove up there to look at it and it wasn't there. They said they sold it two days ago. I told people what they sold it for, and they couldn't believe it. They said there is no way they sold that car for that amount. Another car dealer that is a friend of mine that he doesn't believe they would have sold that car for that amount either. He said they could have gotten more money for the car at auction. They probably just put that price on it to get people to come in. I also see the car ad is still online a week after I was there. Good way to lure people in, I guess. Can't trust anyone. Car dealers are the worst, believe me. I have dealt with my share. Stay away from this dealer!

Spoke to Frank however and my opinion was that he was very serious and not real friendly. Never really listened to me....

Used car salesman Frank Waldo was great! No pressure! I have never been in and out of a dealership so fast in my life. Very good experience. Would recommend to anyone.

I had a good experience with Frank in used car sales. He was very helpful and did not pressure me for a sale. The prices were spot on NADA, so were aggressively priced for sales. I would go back to Dave Walters VW for future cars and I live 65 miles away!
