I was needing a new car. I showed up on foot from a uber. Three hours later... I had a great car 1 owner and clean! Mazda 6 s grand tour sedan! I left with the sunroof open! Thank you very much for the customer service. Above and beyond! I recommend Auto Depot to anyone that is looking for a realistic dealership. No games upfront honest friendly patient and understanding to each individuals needs. I found my experience to be a good one. I was not ‘talked’ into anything and I was comfortable with the process. THIS IS WHY THEY HAVE BEEN IN BUSINESS ON THE CORNER FOR SO LONG! thank you!

Heady and his team are by far the best! He has a business built on integrity, trustworthiness, professionalism. I’ve known Heady for many years and one thing that always remains consistent is his honesty and his work ethic. His people are the best and make you feel like family! If you ever need a ride. Go to the best auto shop in town! Auto Depot! Where they always have your best interest at heart! Thanks Heady, Dan, Manny!

The experience here was AMAZING!!!!! The customer service is absolutely wonderful. Steve was very personable and helpful. Everything was explained to us perfectly to understand our options and we figured out together with his finance team what would work best. We got exactly what we wanted and couldn't be happier! I highly recommend this place and can't wait to come again the next time we are in the market for another car.
