Great team of people. Jordan was a really nice, personable salesman. Great ORIGINAL price on the used Genesis I purchased. The Finance Mgr, Steven Vu, is a funny, Knowledgeable dude. Overall, a really good buying experience. One thing I must mention, however............ Beware of the pre-installed KARR security system.....................

They did not take the time to respond to my question. Instead, they responded with what it seems a short canned email not saying much. It's obvious they don't care for costumers. Not professional at all.

I was contacted by David by email right away. David listened to my needs and budget regarding the vehicle and negotiated with me (phone) on the price and warranty. We made an appointment and when I arrived the vehicle was clean and ready to be shown. We went on a test drive during which time we noticed some obvious mechanical problems (alignment) and a few minor interior ones (dome lights out, etc). When we returned from the test drive we addressed these issues and David assured us that any problems would be repaired - AFTER purchase. I asked if the vehicle could be repaired before purchase and David responded with an emphatic "No". All interactions with this dealer was positive and helpful however I would not recommend buying from them. They are in the business of selling cars in need of repairs under the guise that they will only perform the repairs after you pay.

Dealership had a good friendly vibe. Haven't had the car for long so can't review the car quality. But I have high hopes!

I asked if the car had a clean title through message and they said yes, called them and asked again and they said yes the title was clean. Went to the dealership and found out that the car was a salvage title.

Asking top dollar for a salvage restored title is not my cup of tea. A Toyota dealer would probably offer, perhaps $10,000 for this vehicle as wholesale and maybe ask $14,000 retail. Its a 8 year old vehicle, albeit with low mileage but age does matter in pricing. Many vehicles that Speed Auto Gallery are salvage or restored titles. Trying to get top dollar pricing is crazy but there are suckers out there who see a good looking vehicle and overlook the true value.

I was told this 4runner has a salvaged title when I contacted them but it doesn't state that in the for sale ad? It should be stated in the ad when it's salvaged and I shouldn't have to ask....Wonder how many other ones they're selling have salvaged titles? Carfax or autocheck anything you buy....

Awesome price! Yes it was a salvage rebuild, but they indicated this upfront upon asking. Very quick to respond. Seriously considered it as I currently own three other salvage rebuilds and have loved the the discount afforded by going this way. I always personally inspect these cars for obvious reasons, and found another salvage rebuild locally and opted to buy closer to home.
