Made appointment for service yesterday. Very easy and quick. Robert gave me his name and told me to see him when I arrived. Upon arrival at 10 he greeted me an brought my vehicle in for diagnosis. Within half an hour came back and told me what they had found and what the cost would be.He said they could get me out by 1pm. At 12:30 I signed for the repair.and was on my way. Great service experience. The service manager Bob and advisor Robert were both friendly and professional. I definitely be back.

Erick Civallero was a great Sales Associate. I was very good at talking about the features of the car and actually answered our questions. If he did not know, he would find out and let us know. Eduardo Perez was our Sales Manager and he was also very easy to work with. They were personable and knowledgeable. We bought a 2020 Acura RDX. It has a lot of new features for a great price. The finance department was also helpful. We were there on a busy day and they were very accommodating.
