I'm so glad I chose to buy my first car from here. Rick came off as honest and trustworthy, unlike what I expected from buying a pre-owned car. He also worked with me to get the best deal. Thanks Gillman Acura!

My experience was a 5 star. The salesperson was extremely proffessional and patient as she assisted us in the application process and vehicle search. She met us with a smile . She was positive when we thought that we could not be approved. She worked diligently with us during the entire process. I highly recommend this salesperson by the name LaDonna Jenkins. I encourage everyone to have an experience with her.
