We got a response right away from Sam, and he took care of us the whole time. He wasn't pushy and didn't harass us. When we arrived, he was very professional and ready to show us the vehicle. He made sure we had everything we needed, and they are taking care of everything as far as tag and license. We got a great deal, and when I brought the car to my mechanic he said it was impeccable!

I bought a Rav4, mostly I did not say what I wanted. Service is good, don't be afraid to say what you want. I like the car. Always say what you want. The financial manager was the best. Luis. If you encounter problem ask for a manager, prefer Troy. The care is great quality, I will return on my next purchase.

My service manager is Jean Paul Buisson and I am very impressed with his work ethics. He is patient and always answers my questions in a way which I can understand them. The thing I'm impressed the most about him is how he always lets me know when and if something needs to be replaced and that is a big help to me. He answers my calls when I think I have a problem with my 4Runner, usually it's not a problem, but he is always patient and tells me to bring it in and we will check ...

I was lucky enough to have met Chad Stowe, the sales manager at Lakeside Toyota, on New Year’s Eve, after they had closed. He took time to talk with us about the vehicle I wanted to purchase. Although he didn’t actually sell me my Highlander, he was involved and informed during the whole process and made sure that I didn’t have any issues. If only every car dealership had a Chad Stowe!!!!!
