Everything about our experience was amazing and wonderful. We had a whole day of disappointment with dealerships that we had appointments with (while driving 2 hours) that either sold the vehicle or had no idea where the vehicle was that we wanted to see. As soon as we arrived, we were greeted so nicely! Carlos was so sweet, welcoming, and so helpful!! He helped make us a great deal on the car we came to see. Easy and smooth transaction. Very professional and trustworthy.
