Jason does a great job of being customer driven and communicative. However, it is very sad watching what was once an outstanding dealership spiral into mediocrity under the new ownership. Through the years I have had my Lexus's serviced in multiple Lexus dealers in Florida and North Carolina. None of them were even a close second to Wilde Lexus. That is not true anymore. Greeters lack friendliness and enthusiasm, technicians do an incomplete service even for request items, difficult to get a timely appointment, etc. Everything that used to be great, is now gone.

I've been a nut for cars since I was a kid. Over the decades I've owned dozens of cars and have walked out on many of the old school 'car guys'. I actually got in the car business myself about 12 years ago and I'm a believer in the golden rule, treat others as you like to be treated. Call or email me, buying a car should be pleasant and hopefully fun!

Service experience used to be top notch every time. Since new owners bought it, Friday was the worst experience I’ve had in over 4 years from scheduling online (could not pick my advisor) to leaving a message and no one called me back. I waited 15 min in long line to check in for 9:20 appt and then waited 20 min because there was a mix up with my keys to pick up my car. Cashier was more focused on eating than getting my keys. I left cashiers office with no keys. The guys bringing my car up thought I would have keys which makes no sense because they are supposed to drive my car up. I went back to cashier and finally she found them in my advisers office. My adviser is still great - no change there but employees checking people in, cashiers, and those bringing cars up don’t seem to know what they are supposed to do. I hope the new owners work out the kinks and get back to how it used to be. Online and in person.

The tow truck driver jumpstarted the car and the Lexus dealership said they replaced the battery. It did not have s loaner car for me, requiring me to rent a car at my own expense.

Ana (and Kevin) certainly saved Lexus of Sarasota‘s reputation. Whoever the fellow was that addressed me when I first walked I was obviously not interested in actually selling a car. Because of his lack of interest in selling me one and his basic rudeness, I had actually walked out of the dealership. Then I realized I needed to speak to the manager and have him address the issue with his sales fellow. This is just not appropriate sales behavior. After speaking with him, and explaining my situation, he went and retrieved Ana for me. It was all sunshine from there! Ana was fantastic! Not only were there, in fact, cars to test drive, she was able to explain the difference between the one I thought I wanted, and the one I ultimately ended up getting. I didn’t even realize they were two different cars. She was extremely helpful . Because they didn’t have what I wanted when I left the first time, she called me and let me know when they did have the car I wanted to test drive. The second time I went in, she was right there to assist and we did our test drive. After that, I was ready to buy the car. There was only one hangup, which was that there were none, nor would there be for about four months. This was a problem for me as I really needed a new car sooner than later. I went ahead and contracted for it anyway. When I got home, I did call some other dealers in Florida and discovered that North Miami had what I was looking for, and would have it ready within two or three weeks. I contacted Ana to let her know that I would probably be canceling the deal. She understood when I told her why, though I’m sure it was disappointing. However, just a couple days later, I received a text from her saying that another customer had decided not to take a car they had pre-ordered. It happened to be exactly the right style and color that I wanted. As of now, I am the happy owner of the new Lexus RX 350. Thank you, Ana!

So yesterday my husband and I started out on an adventure

So yesterday my husband and I started out on an adventure to find me a Mercedes Benz. We stopped at a few stores but just did not find the one that satisfies my taste. So we decided to try one last dealer which happens to be Lexus of Sarasota. From the moment we spoke to Marshall Jones on the phone we could tell how welcoming and warm he is. On top of that, I was more impress when he actually sent us a video of the vehicle I was interested in and he did not disappoint us when we got there. It is a gem! After meeting him in person we realized that he was being authentic and also very knowledgeable of the the buying process including what we should expect, and he kept us abreast every step of the way as we waited during the transaction process. He was also able to share some background information of the previous owner handlings of the vehicle which actually put our mind even more at ease. I drove off in my new vehicle feeling very satisfied. Marshall you’re a pleasant, patient and accommodating salesman. And I thank you very much for your attentiveness towards our needs.

Ana (and Kevin) certainly saved Lexus of Sarasota‘s reputation. Whoever the fellow was that addressed me when I first walked I was obviously not interested in actually selling a car. Because of his lack of interest in selling me one and his basic rudeness, I had actually walked out of the dealership. Then I realized I needed to speak to the manager and have him address the issue with his sales fellow. This is just not appropriate sales behavior. After speaking with him, and explaining my situation, he went and retrieved Ana for me. It was all sunshine from there! Ana was fantastic! Not only were there, in fact, cars to test drive, she was able to explain the difference between the one I thought I wanted, and the one I ultimately ended up getting. I didn’t even realize they were two different cars. She was extremely helpful . Because they didn’t have what I wanted when I left the first time, she called me and let me know when they did have the car I wanted to test drive. The second time I went in, she was right there to assist and we did our test drive. After that, I was ready to buy the car. There was only one hangup, which was that there were none, nor would there be for about four months. This was a problem for me as I really needed a new car sooner than later. I went ahead and contracted for it anyway. When I got home, I did call some other dealers in Florida and discovered that North Miami had what I was looking for, and would have it ready within two or three weeks. I contacted Ana to let her know that I would probably be canceling the deal. She understood when I told her why, though I’m sure it was disappointing. However, just a couple days later, I received a text from her saying that another customer had decided not to take a car they had pre-ordered. It happened to be exactly the right style and color that I wanted. As of now, I am the happy owner of the new Lexus RX 350. Thank you, Ana!

Always consumer oriented and willing to help.

Always consumer oriented and willing to help. Know I will be well taken care of and all issues addressed/corrected. Have been buying cars from the same sales person, Tom McOmber, for more than 15 years; he is exceptional.

The dealership was neat and clean.

The dealership was neat and clean. The sales man was accommodating. Was not happy with the fact that we were told that it had an automatic charging station for the phone only to find out that was not true. We were also told that it came with a protection package advantage plan only to find out that we had to pay for it as an extra feature at closing with the finance person. We still have not received the second key fob that was promised. Promises promises promises. Promises made, promises not kept.
