I would like to inform you all that the sales rep., Mr. Darell Babineaux is great to work with if you wish to buy a new Acura. He was attentive, honest and cordial. He also works well with the dealership's general manager, Mr. Wil Paz. Both were outstanding. Together, they worked to find the car that I sought.

This review is about the Advisor (Brandy). She was great! She was very attentive and recommended what I needed now vs trying to tell me I needed everything under the sun done to my vehicle. I would come back and only work with Brandy. However, the wait time is ridiculously long. No fault to Brandy. She did mention the service team only has 2 guys working. It took 3.5 hours for an oil change and wheel alignment. This normally takes 45mins. There were no loaner cars available as they do not have adequate staffing

Kim Eddy was very accommodating to our schedule and we got exactly the price we were expecting. She went out of her way get all the paperwork done so we could pick the car up and leave town. No problems, no hassles, and very easily done. The car was all ready to go when we arrived. Never had a car buying experience go so smoothly!
