I bought a Honda CR-V SE from Wilde a few days ago and couldn't be happier with the service that I received. They really listened to what I wanted and needed in a car, were insanely friendly, didn't try to push any sales on me once I told them what I was looking for. They were extremely honest, even with things that wound up making them less money off my sale. This was the best car buying experience I've ever heard of, let alone had myself. Wilde Honda is amazing and I highly recommend them to everyone. :)

I purchased a used 2004 Honda Hybrid. Shawn Brown was my sales person. I am a first time buyer. He was very helpful and knowledgeable. My mother had leased a car from him and recommended him to me. He made the experience of buying a car worry free. I would recommend Wilde Honda to any of my friends! Thank you so much for the outstanding customer service!

Just purchased my second Honda Pilot from Wilde. Greg was great to work with, really took good care of me. With the 2016 Honda Pilot Elite, Greg kept me posted on the arrival of the vehicle, and when it arrived, he delivered on every promise he made... With this Pilot, the Wilde staff took their time to show me every new feature this vehicle has... Again, This dealership has been great to deal with... From sales to service, fair prices and excellent customer service...

First and foremost let me start by saying me and My fiancee dread going to dealerships.From The Pushy salesmen/women to over priced cars.well this was by far Our Best Experience at a dealership.From start to end.We were Greeted at the car with a umbrella(it was raining)By Michael Malmsbury whom ended up selling us our new(Pre owned)2011 Hyundai Sonata.This man is someone I would HIGHLY recommend going to.He was both Professional and Down to earth.Someone who cares more than just getting you into a car for his benefit.There was a point during credit check that we were thinking it wasn't going to work and he cared so much that he even tried telling me things I could do that had nothing to do with Honda.And that is what made us realize this gentleman cared more than we would have ever thought and what was definitely BEYOND his"JOB".We went home with another plan to try again with a co-Signer.During this, Michael Stayed in contact with us After hours and even when he was not at work yet the following day, which showed true dedication. Answered all of our questions and never treated us as a pain.Nor did he once judge us (He only Understood with true compassion)He Worked very hard to get us in this car at just the right price and HE DID!!! More than fair actually and all in all we received a great deal (A AWESOME MINT Cond. CAR)with bumper to bumper warranty for 3000miles.even the little things at the end He washed our car filled the tank and put our tag on and let us keep our rental their over night as we couldn't drive all three cars home with 2people.We Received Michael Malmsbury by luck,but I'm hoping if you read this Review you can receive this same care by CHOICE.I only wish I would have went and looked at his reviews before wasting my time (5long days) at other hopeless Dealerships.I also wanted to end this review by complementing who ended our sales process with all the paperwork GREG COX.My father and this man had a great connection and He was very Honest Man(A marine Veteran at that)and he handled our paperwork in a timely fashion and held a great conversation while doing so(Thus did not stall him,multitasked the entire way)it was a pleasure getting to finalize paperwork with him...SemperFi(From my father Joe S.) Thank you so much wildehonda especially Michael Malmsbury and GregCox

My Sales Representative, Eduardo Gonzalez, the Sales Manager, Bob Gregory, and the "Finance Guy" Stephen Morris ALL made my experience with Wilde Honda an absolute pleasure. Top-notch guys and an honest to goodness great company!! I definitely will be going back for any future purchases as well as referring them to anyone I know who is looking for a great car buying experience. Thank you for making this milestone experience for me an exceptional one! You have earned me as a customer for life! :-)

Michael Malmsbury was recommended to me by a friend who assured me he I would not be disappointed. My experience with Michael far exceeded expectations. After visiting several other area dealerships Michael was a breath of fresh air. He is a true professional and a gentleman in every sense of the word. He took great pains and time to be certain that the vehicle I purchased was the perfect fit for me. Michael is knowledgeable, patient and thorough. I felt he was genuinely interested in more than just another sale; he wanted me to be completely happy and satisfied. After deciding on a car, Steve Himmel, the Business Manager, walked me through the financial process. My experience with Steve mirrored that with Michael. Wilde Honda is a first class operation. I will definitely return to Wilde for my next car. I recommend this dealership above all others.

Hello everyone PAY ATTENTION to this review for this dealer or some others does same trick!! I purchased 2009 honda civic in 2012. i was really happy with my car. never had any problem. When i was purchasing the car they told me clean carfax, doesnt have any accident before. its also Certified Used car. I didnt think twice to purchase the car. it was Honda Dealership end of the day. We all trust the name. Great customer service.they send me birthday cards to my home and etc. Always went back for the oil change too. But recently I bought different car and put my civic for sale. Some buyer came by and decide to buy the car. And they wanted to do inspection to car. i was fine with it. Because i never have any accident and any other problem with the car. Also car still have extended warranty which i purchased with the car. Next day some inspector came to my house and inspected the car in front of me. still no issues until guy start checking on paint thickness. then asked me if the car have any accidents i said no i have clean carfax. but he said this car had accident. back side of the passenger side. and they painted it the car. The guy explain to me thickness of the car average shold 4.5 in his gauge. but when he check the side with accident paint thickness went up to 11. So wild honda sold it to me car was in accident and paint job before. I was SHOCK!! it cant be possible i purchased from dealership. I know its been 4 years i purchased the car but still dealer doesnt have inspection? they didnt think about the paint test??? or do they know it but didnt mention it ?? or let say this one slide how about your car? i found on ebay they sell that paint meters for $40. so buy one and before go buy a car check it. dont believe that Clean Carfax words! Some of you can think I might had accident and get it fix and beaming on this dealership. well IM NOT!!! here is why! i dont expect anything from the dealer! if i found out about this after i purchased the car it would be big case to this dealer! but im not gona take any legal action like i said its been 4 years i purchased the car and I still have clean carfax report!!! they might delete this review too.but i will keep coming back and post this again and again. I wrote to aware the people out there trying to buy a car and trusting the dealership!!! also i just wanna add i try to post this in dealerRater website too and they refuse to post my review to their website!!! Peace!!

Response from the owner - in the last week
Hello Onur, I am sorry to hear that you are having trouble selling your car. If you are still interested in selling it, I would be more than happy to buy it back since we are always looking for great trade-ins. I’d like to clarify a few points. CarFax is a third party vendor that receives its information independent of our dealership and provides it to us and you, the buyer, for a fee. There is no way for CarFax to verify if a car repair was done under the table by the previous owner by not going through insurance or from using a repair company that does not report to CarFax. If a previous owner touched up a minor ding and then painted over that area, it would read a thicker paint gauge; but that does not mean the car was in an accident or that the minor ding was reported to CarFax. I can understand your frustration at feeling lied to and misled; however, my business is founded on providing an honest customer service experience. DealerRater has very strict guidelines for submission and we had nothing to do with their rejection of your review. Again, they are a third party review site that we utilize; however, they are in charge of what reviews get posted. I can tell you that I have researched the vehicle and know that we had no reason to believe that the vehicle was ever “in an accident”. We always check over the vehicle for evidence of accident repair. Our technicians do not use paint meters when inspecting or reconditioning a pre-owned vehicle, especially when there is a perfect and clean CarFax. Maybe this is something we should reconsider. We use CarFax as a final check, as it is very accurate in disclosing if there was a legitimate accident with another vehicle, or any police report stating there was a collision. That being said, there is the possibility that the vehicle had paint work done over time. I personally have had vehicles damaged by items falling on them in the garage, shopping carts rolling into them, and a neighbor’s child running into it with a bicycle when it was parked in the driveway. All of these ended up requiring paint repair. I honestly cannot say what happened to your Civic before we purchased it from American Honda as a lease turn in. I can tell you that we have no record of painting the vehicle. It is possible that the previous lessee had some scratches or damage and wanted to avoid the damage penalties at lease turn in. Or, the vehicle may have been repaired by American Honda before it came available as a lease turn in. It’s even possible that the vehicle was repaired before the first customer leased that car years ago in New York. I do not think for a minute that you would intentionally deceive us or your potential buyer. I just wish that you could apply that same sentiment toward us. I know from the CarFax report I sent you yesterday that you have taken care of it during your ownership. You have a number of service visits to us after you purchased the car on 5/01/2012 with 24,344 miles. The CarFax indicates that the vehicle had 65,612 miles on it when you had the Georgia inspection done on 6/23/2015. I hope that the Civic has been a good and reliable transportation for you over these 3+ years. I don’t know the general condition of your vehicle now, but a well maintained 2009 Civic with about 70,000 miles is a very desirable vehicle in today’s used vehicle market. We have buyers for vehicles such as this. If you find that you cannot sell the car, contact me and I will put you in touch with our buyer. We appreciate your business in the past, and I hope you can see that we truly did not “lie” to you, or try to hide anything intentionally when we sold you the vehicle. I also hope that the enjoyment and reliability of the vehicle over the time you’ve owned it can somewhat overcome the issues you are experiencing now. Hopefully, you could reconsider your review on Google. Let me know if there is anything else you would like me to do for you regarding this issue.

My 87 year old mother, Elizabeth just purchased a Touring Model CRV at your location. Michael Malmsbury was our sales agent and he did a wonderful job of explaining the pros and cons of the various models. He also was very prompt in all of the follow ups that we had and in returning telephone calls. Most importantly, Michael was patient and professional with my mother. He listened to her concerns and questions and was very careful to provide answers in a way that she could process and understand the answer. He also provided a tutorial of the features on the car which was extremely thorough and complete. Always asking if she wanted more information and suggesting that even after she had taken the car home to write down her questions and come and see him as long as she wanted. Ronnie and Bob were also involved in the sale and did a great job of handling my mother.
