We just purchased a 2014 Toyota Prius Three from Amanda Abshire at Pat Lobb Toyota of McKinney. We called Amanda after reading about her great reviews here on DealerRater, and they are definitely accurate. We have purchased many, many cars, and this was among the best experiences we have had.
Our 2002 Rav4 was nearing the end of its useful life, so we were in the market for a low lease payment originally on a new RAV4. After several frustrating hours at Toyota of Richardson (the dealership closest to our home-think high pressure and four squares) and driving as far as Hurst looking for a great deal, we searched the area for dealerships closer to home. We found Pat Lobb's Toyota of McKinney, among others. After checking DealerRater, we called Amanda up and told her the lowest price we had found so far for the RAV4. After discussing our needs and giving us prices/payments over the phone (OMG, yes she did, I hope you are reading this Toyota of Plano!), she mentioned they also had great lease deals on the Prius. So we headed up to see her the next business day (Sunday in between), she met us bright and early at 8:45 am on Monday morning. We test drove the RAV4 (which she beat the lowest price on), a Prius Three and then a Toyota Camry SE. After securing the necessary information including payments on the three leases, we left the dealership with no pressure and was given time to think about it. After double checking prices on the prius and camry with other dealerships, we ultimately called Amanda back later that Monday and told her we wanted the Prius. We returned that late afternoon to sign papers. Unfortunately, there was an error by the sales manager, and we actually had purchased a car that had very, very light hail damage. We did not see this until after we signed the paperwork and the car was in the garage at night under the lights. We immediately called Amanda and she was right on it. We drove back up to the dealership and ultimately worked out a deal that was even cheaper and they agreed to fix all of the very small dings in the roofline. We are absolutely positive this was an error and they were not trying to pull one over on us. It was an honest mistake. At any rate, we just took the car in to have it fixed (for free) and Amanda was ready for me when I arrived at the dealership, again bright and early. She even gave us a loaner that was really nice and not of the normal "loaner" variety. We were free to drive it the entire day. When we returned for the car, it was done perfectly, and again Amanda was waiting for me. She even filled the Prius up again with gas so we left with a full tank!
If you are in the market for a new Toyota or Scion or a pre-owned car, please consider Amanda. She is no-pressure, upfront and has a real commitment to her clients. We highly recommend her with great enthusiasm!
