My Review Of Longo Lexus:
This is a letter of appreciation to Ahmed Yamak, a Longo Lexus Certified Master Sales Agent.
My wife purchased a Toyota Celica from Longo Toyota in 1978. She enjoyed the buying experience and kept Longo Toyota in the forefront of her mind regarding any subsequent purchases of Toyota vehicles. Again, in 2000, we drove her sister to Longo Toyota and she purchased a Toyota vehicle.
In 2003, my wife was interested in purchasing a crossover vehicle. We drove to Longo Lexus regarding a potential purchase. To our surprise, when we entered the showroom, no one approached us or offered any assistance. There was a salesman and a receptionist in the showroom. Neither one of them offered any assistance. We left the showroom and vowed to never return to Longo Lexus.
Based on our previous experience with Longo Toyota, in 2006 we purchased a Toyota Corolla S for our daughter. Once again we had a positive buying experience with Longo Toyota.
In July of this year, my wife was interested in purchasing a certified pre-owned Lexus RX 350. We visited Santa Monica Lexus, South Bay Lexus and Beverly Hills Lexus. They all had a good selection of RX 350’s in stock; however, they did not have the exterior and interior combination my wife was interested in purchasing. We knew that lease returns would be coming in each month; therefore, we informed the sales agents about our exterior and interior preferences and requested they call us when they received the appropriate combination.
Even though the salesman and receptionist snubbed their nose at us in 2003, my wife utilized the internet and located the perfect RX 350 combination at Longo Lexus. We decided to call Longo Lexus and see if this specific vehicle was still on the lot. We established this particular vehicle was still on the lot and immediately made an appointment on Sunday, August 5, 2012, to view the car.
After arriving at Longo Lexus approximately 12 noon, we exited our vehicle, and were immediately approached by Ahmad Yamak. He did not know we had already contacted Longo Lexus regarding a RX 350. Nevertheless, he was extremely personable and more than happy to offer his assistance. He offered us some liquid refreshments and most important he listened to what options my wife wanted on the RX 350. It became apparent to my wife and me that Ahmad was very knowledgeable about his Lexus product line. My wife and I agreed that this was one of the most positive buying experiences compared to Santa Monica, South Bay or Beverly Hills. We were so impressed with Ahmad we informed him if any of our friends or relatives are interested in purchasing a Lexus, we would pass along his name and phone number. Needless to say, he is our focal point for any future purchases of Lexus vehicles.
Thanks Ahmed for the positive buying experience and making August 5, 2012 a phenomenal day!
Veta and James Simpson
