              My first car buying experience will forever be unforgettable. Phil, the manager,

              was amazing on getting me the best price possible (no exaggerations). I got the vehicle I wanted with an unbeatable price with a low interest rate (even though I had no car loan history).

               My experience was a very pleasant experience. Mr. Holdgraf accommodated

               me in every way possible. I have never had such a wonderful vehicle buying experience. I have recommended him to everyone I talk to about Toyotas.

    - Diana J.

               Gary Holdgraf was the person who assisted me in this purchase and many

               others over the years. I consider him highly trustworthy and informed. Every car, including this one, was delivered in excellent condition and I was personally informed in many of the features that were priorities. The car has functioned without any trouble. If something did show trouble I feel confident the dealership would handle it with speed and accuracy. I highly recommend Gary and Cavender Toyota for their product and service.

                Easiest I have ever dealt with a dealership. David Dickinson was great - didn't

              push anything on me. He listened, and I got the truck I wanted.

    - Paul Z.

            I went to Cavender Toyota, which was my first time doing so. I was immediately 

             greeted by David Dickinson. He was really nice and welcoming and wanted to know what I wanted. Not what he recommended. So we looked at Tacomas and Tundras. Long story short. I found a truck that I liked and Cavender Toyota worked with my father and I SO well.

    - Sam M.

             Our experience with our car salesman was excellent - his name is David 

             Dickinson - he is very professional, kind, patient, courteous and had worked so hard with us, he wasn't pushy as others I used to know at other dealerships.

    - Melessa T.

              My salesman, David Dickinson was awesome. He patiently drove me around

              the lot with my Mom, that could not walk the lot. He listened to my needs, which included needing space for a dog crate. He found my car and the rest is history. While we waited for the financing to take place, David provided me and Mom with Canes chicken fingers. He then went and got my mother's car for her. He saw that a bird had redecorated it, so he drove it through their carwash. Before leaving lot he took my picture in my new car. It was a great experience at Cavender Toyota.

              I recently went to Cavender Toyota and so far have had the best experience

             buying a new car! I purchased a 2016 Highlander SLE and I LOVE IT! My daughter loves it and only wants to sit in the 3rd row :) Julio Cervera was amazing and took the time to explain the difference between the sport and the limited. I was excited to see all the available options and colors and felt no pressure.

    - Jody M.

             Great experience at Cavender Toyota buying our 2016 Highlander XLE. Worked

             with sales associate Julio Cervera this week over details and pricing. He found us the exact vehicle we wanted and gave it to us for a far better price than several other dealers. Very pleased with the process from start to finish and we'd be happy to recommend Julio and Cavender to anyone!!

    - Zach R.

             Within a half day I received an amazingly good email offer from Julio Cervera 

             at Cavender Toyota. The next day my wife and I visited the dealership, we had a deal in an hour and we drove away with our new car a few hours later. Julio was very professional and courteous.
