Honest dealer thread

Folks,

The term "honest" with respect to car dealer is a subjective one, but if you have bought CRV from a dealer who was straight forward with you from the beginning and did not play tricks with or during the purchase process will you post the dealer name along with state and hopefully with sales man name here ? Please post only if you have made your purchase with them. Hopefully everyone on this forum will benefit from others experience.

Request folks to not post their negative experience on this thread since we all know these experiences are aplenty and we can write a book about them.

What's the point? What's to keep this thread from becoming like one of the many review sites where the "honest dealers/sales people" just write reviews of themselves, while pretending to be somebody else?

Given the number of dealers spread across North America, I don't see how this will get much value or traction.

But.. here goes.. :)

Anderson Honda
Palo Alto, California.
Sales person: George Werner

Straight dealer that plays no games, and really wants you to be a satisfied customer. They are also currently THE TrueCar recommended dealer in the bay area. You get a TrueCar quote, and you will also have a phone call or email from a sales person within an hour too. Less then 90 minutes to complete a sale as well.

Fair, competitive, up front pricing, and they even gave me more for my 2008 CRV trade-in then I would have asked for (first time of not having to haggle or throw a tantrum with a dealer on a trade-in).

Anderson Honda is currently the ONLY dealer I will buy from in the bay area... and have purchased two new Hondas from them in the last 3 years.

Bought my last 2 CRVs that way.
I've bought my last two Hondas from Keenan Honda in Doylestown, PA using warehouse club (BJs, Costco) services. I worked with the same salesman, Mitch, both times. Everyone there has been very easy to deal with. Hoping to buy one more car (maybe the CR-V Hybrid) before Mitch retires in the next year or two.

Of course your mean "sales person" right?

This is how we've bought most of our recent cars - it used to be easier years back when most internet managers were the fleet managers where they mixed the few internet sales with their bulk of fleet sales. Now you get regular sales people assigned to internet duty and they want their commissions.

What's the point?
I agree - there's often lots of variables around what people consider honest. For many if they feel they got a deal then that sets their impression of how honest the sales person was and usually factors such as inventory, time of year and just general pressure and directive from the owners decides how 'honest' a sales person is at that time.
Norm Reeves Honda in Cerritos is awesome. They also have a shuttle that takes you to the nearby mall while you wait for your car to get serviced.

Yes I meant sales person, thanks for pointing that out.
