2017 MDX Purchase - linda
I chose Marin Acura over other Bay Area dealerships because Malcolm Kaye returned my e-mails and phone calls, kept in touch without being pushy and when we visited the dealership Malcolm was professional, friendly and knowledgeable. We ultimately crafted a deal with Greg, the Sales Manager and we couldn't be happier with our purchase. Manny gave a great first tutorial for all the technology and encouraged us to come back for further tutoring, which I will definitely be doing. I highly recommend this dealership and it's employees.
No Hassel - Jaime
I had no idea I would drive out that day with my 2017 MDX advanced package. I was just going to "test drive" with help from Christine. She was friendly, knowledgable and no pressure. Communication was and is great... I texted her I need a new windshield when it wasn't 2 weeks old.. She immediately replied. I would highly suggest Christine my car buying experience was just what I wanted it to be.
great experience with used RDX purchase - aaronm
I recently bought a certified 2014 Acura RDX through Philippe and had a really good experience with the test drive and paperwork the following day, including a painless closing with the Finance Manager (Michael). The car was well prepared with a minor tire leak promptly fixed. Philippe was very helpful and responsive. Overall a very stress-free experience.

Engine, LED headlamps, Sound quality are fantastic. Car has low resale value as my experience does not appear to be unique. So I have to chalk this up to a very expensive lesson. While the car is disappointing the response of the dealership and Acura/Honda customer service was more disappointing. Acura buyer beware. You are welcome to contact me and I can share the details of my experience and point you at my files and the videos of the problems I have had.
Quick and on the go... - Yuisaego09@$
I got my car back in December 2016. Walk in, wait about ten minutes then go with a sale rep. Then told him what we want and got the paper work done. Smooth as sailing. I recommend them. My rep was Scott and he was straight to the point. I was treat like sh$t t Acura in Modesto, ca. Compared them I have to said this was great service and no complaints but complements only.
You call this a SERVICE department??? - Judy Schmidt
Total lack of service! Starting with the check-in process, which was done with zero customer service skills. No feed back. I had to ask about everything. When I wanted some repainting on some scratches on my front bumper due to a curb, I was told my coverage I bought doesn't cover that and then he proceeded to tell me all the steps involved. I wasn't happy hearing my purchase of scratch coverage was a waste, basically. So, why did I purchase it? I had an oil change, a battery put in my key, and the recall was dealt with. No telephone call was made to tell me the car was ready. I was at a friend's house while I was waiting. I finally called them at 4:00 and was transferred to 4 different people, one of which was a recording and I had to call again! Once I got connected he told me the car was ready and could I return the next day so that a door gasket could be fixed.
I am going to a different Acura dealership. This is not the first time I've had issues with this dealership. I'm done with them!
Avoid this dealership! Deceptive financing practice - ppaz98
What started as a visit to test drive the TLX ended with closing a lease deal for a 2017 TLX with Tim Tyler that finished with signing documents past their dealership hours at 8:30 PM. At that hour I was only interested in the final price for the car and the monthly payments which were acceptable. My wife and I signed and initialed the docs and would read the details after we left during dinner. I let my guard down and trusted that the pertinent details would be described by Zarif Saeed the finance director as we signed each document. Only while eating dinner at a nearby restaurant did I see that a $2000, 2yr optional service agreement had been added and texted Tim Tyler immediately who responded that he would instruct Mr Saeed to remove that and we can re-sign the documents when we return to pick up the car. However I stewed all night about the non-disclosure of the $2000 service agreement and after listening to my recording of the 20+ min conversation with Zarif, it is clear he intentionally omitted describing this big item while he spent some time describing the discounted oil change program, the $750 incentive, and “free” excess wear and tear addendum. He even took the time to point out the tax and doc processing charge but somehow left out the $2000 service contract with the line he had asked me to initial??? How convenient of him. So I felt very deceived after reading the contract during dinner and eventually just pissed off all night for being duped. I set an ultimatum that now I want them to not just remove the service agreement but also knock down the sales price another $2000 so they'll know what it will feel like to give up $2000. At least I was transparent with me taking $2000 out of their pockets.
The following day Tim set up a phone call with the GM Mark Dowling to discuss the situation. My conversation with Mark Dowling the dealership GM was cordial and he apologized for the "misunderstanding". In his 15+ years with the dealership, he apparently has not encountered such a complaint. I was told I should have received a copy of that signed service agreement but conveniently that was also not included the packet. Mr. Dowling's claim and the absence of that service contract only confirmed that this dealership cannot be trusted and clearly do not know how to nurture the customer loyalty. Needless to say, I instructed them to void the contract due to deceptive finance practice. I fully accept the need for profit but not ever through deception.
It's unfortunate that Tim Tyler who is a straightforward, no-nonsense client advisor is working for such a dishonest dealership. We told him what we were looking for, he delivered in a clear and timely manner, and we were happy to get the car a couple of weeks earlier than planned. But unfortunately, as the process escalated thru finance and finally to management, the true colors of Concord Acura emerged. AVOID this dealership! I went to Acura Marin the next day and got our TLX and I will be writing their praises.
Lack of knowledge or customer service - WIlliam WIse
Came in looking for a new SUV because I am a single dad with 5 children. I found the lack of customer service apparent almost immediately. My questions were ignored. I was talked over. I was not listened to. The young salesman seemed completely disinterested in my business, which I eventually took elsewhere.
