Overall, my experience here has been great. The salesman, Mike, was helpful, not too pushy in securing a sale and clear on the agreement. The people in the service department are routinely nice and happy to answer questions. However, I have an ongoing problem with a rattle on the back dash that they have been unable to resolve. It started as only noticeable when certain songs were played on the stereo but has progressed over time. I know that they worked a long time to try to resolve it, which is why I am only lowering my rating from 5 to 4, but it is still an unresolved problem.
