I used the internet and got quotes from most of the Honda dealerships in SoCal region and got a good price on a Honda Accord and Eric Tran at Autonation Valencia beat the price and then some. We brought our old car in for a trade-in at their dealership that evening and they offered a very fair price and we signed the deal.We returned a few days later picked up our car and they made the buying process very simple and painless. I would like to say I have bought a few cars over my time and this was by far the best experience ever. The sales team was not pushy or aggressive and listened to what we wanted and never veered off that course. They made sure we totally happy with our purchase before buying and did not hard sell extras like other dealerships try to do (they did offer them of course).I certainly could not ask for anything more from a dealership in terms of my purchase and how pleasant they made the buying experience. One last thing the staff was tremendous they were all very polite and courteous and informative and were real people pleasers and were true professionals all the way.All of the staff Autonation Valencia were really great, Eric, Nick, Datimar, Heather and Rob made sure we were all well taken care of during the process and did a excellent job.They also followed up with emails, phone calls to make sure we were happy with everything and if we had any questions about the car we would like answered. If I could give them 6 stars for a job well done I would, this dealership knows how to treat their customers and make the car buying process as easy as can be.I will be a return customer after the treatment we received and recommend this dealership to anyone in the market for a new Honda. P.S. We love the car!
