I can see why this dealership has been in business for 99 years. Last night I bought my "used" car at Rodland. The experience was like being at Nordstroms. It was great. I will certainly be back, and I would recommend this dealership to others. Hands down the best car buying experience I have ever had. I did experience the Signature difference and oh, what a difference it is... Darryl and Jerry were both relaxed, friendly, and available. No pressure here, just pure, authentic, good business...
I always call Jim in service. He gets me in immediately, understands exactly what I want done without much explanation and always has my work done right the first time and on time.
My filters needed to be replaced in my vehicle and the service department showed me my old filters and explained the benefits of replacing them. The gentleman who serviced my vehicle greeted me after my car was done and introduced himself, explained what was done to my car, the benefits I should see, and thanked me for being a customer. I felt that my patronage to Rodland Toyota was appreciated!
Jason completely exceeded our expectations. He even personally washed the car we drove in while we were in financing our vehicle. That was WAY above and beyond and it really impressed us! It also impressed us that as young as he is, he's worked there since he was a teenager, having started out washing cars.
I was very impressed with the extraordinary team work of the sales staff. Rob, Colin, and Brian are very professional! It must be a genuine pleasure to work in your environment. I will send anyone I run into that's considering a new car to those gentlemen!
A huge thank you to Colin Miller and Tom Staniford for taking the worry out of purchasing a new car. Dana Plagmann and Lindsay Rodland in the rental department were also very helpful in the time of our need for a 4WD vehicle during our brief snowstorm. We rented a 4Runner the first day of the snowstorm. Other rental agencies didn't have any 4WD vehicles available so I called Rodland and Dana set us up with the 4Runner. Thank you all!
John Yi, our salesperson, was the most informed auto sales consultant I have ever encountered. He was extremely concerned with meeting and exceeding our expectations!
We all had so much fun at Rodland Toyota. I asked the salesman what is with this dealership? How is it so different from the many horror stories one hears of people's car buying experiences? I was told the people who work at Rodland are proud of their product, they like what they do and who they work with and the sleaze sale simply doesn't fit in with their business model. I was impressed!
Dear Mr. Evans,
I just wanted to bring to your attention the outstanding customer service/ client relations ability of one of your sales reps, Brett Lange. Brett helped me lease my Toyota Corolla three years ago from Rodland Toyota and he has always responded immediately to any of my calls regarding any questions I have, currently concerning leasing another Toyota. I have been so pleased and actually astounded by the customer service Brett has provided, that I believe that I will ALWAYS lease or buy my vehicles from Toyota in the future. Customer Service is pretty much obsolete in America and it is so refreshing and well-worth it for anyone to stick with not only a company but also a specific dealership (in this case) for all future purchasing needs. Please tell him that I said "Thank You," again and thank you for your time.
I would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to the Rodland Toyota service staff for assisting my family with our Toyota 4Runner. My wife's 4Runner was not starting correctly for a few days and then just died. We were looking into starters to get the vehicle up and running again when your service department pointed out that it may be the contacts. This diagnosis, which was correct, waved us a lot of money and time. Needing a reliable vehicle to driver our two small children around is vital and to have a company work with us to fix the problem in the most efficient, cost effective, manner was greatly appreciated. They were even able to get our vehicle in the very next day. Everyone was very helpful with our constant phone calls and questions. Two people that were particularly helpful were Les Chase and Anthony Spansel.
We will continue to come to Rodland Toyota for our automotive needs.
Rodland Toyota has an outstanding customer service team. Colin Miller, our salesman, was an awesome person, friend, and salesman. Great humor, outstanding attitude. He deserves a great bonus for the hard work he does. The financial salesman that works in the Scion part is awesome, too. He did our papers and was very quick and efficient. Thanks!
The sales staff was very nice and polite, yet personable. The office staff respected our space when discussing the purchase. No one interrupted or gave us bad vibes.
At our age 83 and 85, we decided that Rodland was the closest and best. Had a few experiences with them about our 4Runner and when we decided to stop and check, our salesman was great and did a super job and didn't pressure us and hung in there with us.
Rodland Toyota is a great dealership that provides superb customer service. Their entire staff is friendly, courteous, and willing to do whatever it takes to get your questions answered. John Yi was my sales associate.
The only dealership we went to was Rodland Toyota. This was my first experience purchasing a new car. The process was very smooth, informative, with no pain. The sales rep who dealt with us (Mr. Rob Olsen) was great!
Rodland is a great dealership and I have worked with the same salesman both times I have bought from them. His name is Jason Lyons and he knows how to make the customer happy.
Due to job insecurity, needed lowest price options, but only Rodland understood, and even had the perfect one. Kudos to salesman Brett Lange of Rodland for his courtesy and patience which lead us to the right vehicle fast. He and the Rodland managers also accommodated our need for speed of transaction and delivery while I was in the midst of job searches plus assisting failing aging relatives. Thanks Brett and Rodland!
I have purchased from Rodland Toyota before. The sales and service departments are professionally run and I always have a positive experience there.
I appreciate the way Rodland Toyota values my time and makes it easy to purchase my car and answer all of my questions.
Tom Baldwin at Rodland Toyota is an awesome buy to buy a car from. I wish I could have dealt with him throughout the entire process. Very knowledgeable and helpful. Easy to work with and talk to.
Salesperson Colin, was one of the nicest people I have met and he made my car buying experience GREAT!!
Rodland Toyota has a fabulous reputation in my area. My family and friends have all bought vehicles at Rodland Toyota. They are the best!
Our sales person was Mike Hilderbrand. He was excellent on explaining everything on the Prius for me. He took his time and made me feel very knowledgeable. I can't thank him enough.
At Rodland Toyota the purchase experience was pleasant with no excessive pressure to buy. We, essentially went to Rodland to buy a car, not just to look. We weren't disappointed with the process. They had to search widely for the color we chose and moved without haste. Good gang at Rodland. We would readily, at this early point, deal with them in the future.
Rodland Toyota has set the bar very high for customer satisfaction and sales experience! Even my wife was impressed and she does not like car dealerships! I look forward to an equally good experience with the service department. A+++
I just want to let you know that I was very satisfied with my recent experience with Rodland Toyota and your salesperson, Harry Chen. This was the third vehicle we purchased from Rodland and Harry made the whole process very pleasant and smooth. I really appreciated his down-to-earth approach and lack of pressure - exactly the type of person I wouldn't hesitate to contact again, if need be. My daughter is thrilled with her little Echo.
Dear Mr. Rodland,
I just purchased a certified 'Pre-Owned' Toyota Tacoma 4X4 from your company and wanted to tell you of my experience. I say 'Pre-Owned' because it is a 2009 with only 3,700 miles at the time of purchase. Hardly Pre-Owned.I had planned to keep my 1996 Tacoma 4x4, which had been the most reliable vehicle I have owned in 40 years. Long story short, Dave Moir managed to unravel my plans! He found me a truck on your lot that met my needs perfectly. Dave was easy to work with, with none of the usual pressure you experience at other dealers. On top of that, he's easy to talk to, and he listens to his customers which can be rare these days.
What I have found to be really unique about your dealership is the way I've been treated after buying a pre-owned vehicle. From the moment I bought the truck, there has been no distinction between new vehicle serviceand the service I've received for a pre-owned truck. I visited the Service Department for 2 warranty issues and they were handled more than professionally. The same with the Parts Department. I appreciate the attention to detail and great service I've received from Rodland Toyota. It may be a small thing to you, but to me it made the normally painful buying experience a good one. I'll be back and I won't hesitate to send my friends to you!
On behalf of my wife and myself, I would like to thank you for the wonderful treatment we received in the purchase of a beautiful, used Certified tan and white 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser on December 21, 2009. Starting with sales consultant Rob Olsen who took the first test ride with us late at night, to Jeff Sweeney sales consultant, who also took a test ride with us a few days later to our home to see how the FJ cruiser would fit into our garage. We didn't buy the FJ that day, but I returned 3 days later to speak with either of them who were both busy at the time. I was introduced to Wendy Cliffton, who listened to my concerns and immediately went to work helping to see if a deal could be made. She called your Used Car Manager John Woods who made a decision that helped us to make a deal that we could accept, as well as take care of Rodland Toyota. A final person I want to recognize is Joy Edwards in Finance. I told her when we were through the final details, 'she truly lived up to her first name'.
The above employees are an asset to your staff!
Thank you again,
H& M R. 'First time Toyota Owners'
Dear Staff at Rodland,
Thank you for always doing your best for our courier crew! Your attention to our needs and schedules is invaluable to us. We know how your work keeps us safe and able to do our jobs. We thank you so much!!
S.B. and the whole Everett Clinic Courier Crew
I foolishly drained the tranny fluid instead of the oil. The New Tundra's transmission is quite complex and needless to say I forwent doing the work. Steve and the service department took me in without an appointment and took care of everything. Great work and money well spent!
Thank you Rodland! Exceptional Service- Jim Craig is so professional & friendly on the phone and patient since he had to track down and talked with 3 people in our family!
M & P
I could not be more satisfied by Rodland's technical and customer service. Best vehicle care I have ever experienced!
I have purchased 8 New Toyota Trucks and 9 New Toyota Cars. Rodland Toyota is the best dealership in the USA!
Rodland has a very professional staff, and always keep you updated concerning the status of repair work required.
At Rodland, Steve Hendrickson works with you to get your vehicle fixed. Steve's dedication has brought me to Rodland for all my future service.
Jim Craig was extremely helpful in answering questions on the recall repairs to be made. Also gave us information on where to get help with an older Camry.
After all the scary news about Toyota, we were very pleased to receive the "no charge" 6 month inspection. Will drive up from Seattle again.
J & C
I was amazed, delighted and very, very pleased with everything yesterday. Jim was in charge of getting my car serviced. He couldn't have been nicer. The quote was for $189, and when the car was ready (after only 1 hour & 10 minutes!), he told me that the oil filter didn't need changing and so he had deducted $21 from the price of the servicing. Needless to say, I would never have known one way or the other!
The showroom area was spotless and I was able to use your computer to do some email.
I promise you I'll be back whenever my Toyota needs tender loving care!
Thank you for following up with me, too.
Thank you so much for your knowledge, attitude and patience through the buying process. I know I can be a handful with questions and concerns. You are a fantastic sales representative for Rodland Toyota. As long as you are there I will continue to give you my business. I can see you climbing the ladder. You are a great person and I appreciate your input and honesty. I will point anyone interested in a new vehicle to you and Rodland.
I wish I had a way to contact Buzz Rodland so I could give him my feelings as well. I would appreciate it if somehow this email could get to him. He's running a great business there.
Have a great Summer and I hope to see you all again soon.
G.D (J, C(6), R(4) and G(20 mths))
I just wanted to write to you to let you know what a great staff you have. I have been wanting a Tacoma since I was 15 and as corny as it sounds your sales team made my dream come true! I have had a lot of cars and never walked away happy till Monday! J
I worked with Tom Baldwin and Minh le on Monday night 6/21/2010. Not only were these to so professional but they were also two of the kindest and hard working people I have met in a long time. They took the time to make sure that my family and I were taking care of and did their best to get me into the truck of my dreams.
I had been looking at a lot of other dealerships and did not stay cause the sales staff were not the brightest crayons in the box. Your staff knew what they were talking about and took the time and effort to make things right and did not bs me.
I just wanted to pass this on to you and let you know I will recommend all family and friends that are looking for a new truck and car to your lot and I will be coming back to this shop for all parts and accessories as well. Again thank you so much to tom and minh who were amazing!
Tom, Jim, Jeff and Jason,
Thank you so much for providing such a great car buying experience. Not once but twice!! First with my Tundra last May and now this week with our new 2011 Sienna. We love our new family hauler. As you know, after the home, the auto purchase can be the most stressful. I cannot say that about my last 2 auto purchases from Rodland. I thank you all for making the auto buying experience such a pleasure. My Tundra lease is up in 2 more years and you can bet I will be back at Rodland when the time comes. I am a BIG Rodland fan and with service like this I can't imagine giving my business to anybody else. I will refer anyone that will listen to your showroom.
Just a small token of my thanks for your professionalism and friendly demeanor last Tuesday. It made the conversations and negotiations a very pleasant experience, and its consistent with the experiences my wife and I have had in purchasing our other two cars from you!
Dear Mr. Rodland,
Last week my wife and I purchased a 2009 Toyota Highlander from our pre-owned vehicle lot. We have never had a more positive experience with a sales staff. In particular, Jerry McLain was exceptionally helpful, knowledgeable, and entirely accessible. He went the extra mile to ensure that we were completely satisfied with our purchase, and had a genuine concern for our overall experience at Rodland Toyota. During the purchase process we also had the pleasure of dealing with Dave Moir and Harry Chen, both of whom excel at their job and, like Jerry, clearly care about the overall customer experience. These gentlemen are a credit to your organization. They are the reason that we will return to Rodland Toyota for our future car needs, and will recommend your dealership to our friends and family.
I wanted to take a minute to let you know how much we enjoyed our experience with your dealership this past week. Bubba Howard and John Wood are two of the most outstanding salesmen we have ever had the pleasure of working with us. We were treated with the utmost respect the entire time that we were there, all the way through financing which we KNOW was a bit of a challenge going in... and even within that challenge your sales team and finance dept. were able to make it work beyond our expectations!
I would recommend your dealership and BUBBA HOWARD to any of my friends and family and have already let the FACEBOOK world know it. You definitely have a VERY satisfied - lifetime customer!
Thanks again for an enjoyable truck buying experience. LOVE OUR TUNDRA!
