My experience at Culver City Mazda was an excellent one... - Sungpark0811
My experience at Culver City Mazda was an excellent one all because of Arlene’s professionalism and her customer service skills. I walked in with a car in mind and she was able to not only meet my expectations, but exceed it. Buying/leasing a car can be a long and stressful process, but she was able to get me in and out in no time. I can honestly say that this was the easiest auto transaction I’ve made from all the vehicles I’ve owned. If I’m in the market for another Mazda, I wouldn’t hesitate to visit Arlene at Culver City Mazda.

Pilar ensured that my experience at Galpin Mazda was nothing short of spectacular! She went above and beyond to make sure I had a comfortable car buying experience and that the vehicle fit my needs, including the price range! She was very personable and set a new standard for me as far salesmanship is concerned. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a new Mazda. She is the best! Thank you Pilar.

When you go through dealer service, maybe it's expected... - IC
When you go through dealer service, maybe it's expected that you'll have to take out a bank loan and possibly leave your firstborn before you get your car back in working condition, but you at least hope to get something for your money in that significant mark-up. For whatever reason, whether it's the pandemic necessitating labor cuts or internal changes in the service department itself, the service here really seems to have gone downhill fast. It's not a great feeling to historically spend thousands of dollars at a service department, and thousands even in a single trip, and get absolute no-frills treatment at a premium labor cost of 2-3x times the market rate. No waiving of the ridiculous 3.99 credit fee on a significant repair, excessive wait time to get the car after the department said it was ready (there were plenty of spots they could have left it so I could leave right after processing), and no car wash to top it all off (maybe think about fixing the wash roller - this is a small touch that goes a long way). Will be avoiding in the future and suggest you do the same.
Wonderful service - Vargas12
Both of these employees and the rest of the staff were extremely patient with us and made sure that we took the car that we truly wanted. Very clean space that is welcoming and comfortable.
Dishonest & Incompetent - gilbyhubbs
First, I realize my comments are a little lengthy, but could save you hundreds of dollars. My visit started February 2020 with my second visit regarding a recall for passenger airbag. When arriving I had them look at my "check engine light" which was on, though my car's performance seemed fine. I even let them know that all my spark plugs, and two of fhe four coils had recently been replaced. They guaranteed that if I paid the $99 fee they could pin point my exact problem as to why engine light was on, which I agreed to. I end out getting a call announcing that all four spark plugs needed to be replaced because suppossably the wrong size had been put in, also, though I had made clear 2 coils were fairly new, they stated I needed to replace all four. My husband was told the total bill was $866, which we reluctantly decided it was worth it to get a few more years out of the car. After getting car back a day later, the very next morning "check engine light was back on. I called them that Thursday morning and was told they couldn't possibly see the car for another 6 days! On top of that problem, my "air bag light" was staying on, which meant something was wrong with that too, which caused loss of the use of the car until I could take to my mechanic, which I did. They discovered that the sensor light for air bag had not been cleaned or reconnected. For $125 both the engine light and my air bag light were fixed, as opposed to Mazda charging my $922 for completely unnecessary work.. I've tried to talk to them, even showing receipts stating their failure, but in the end they only compensated me $308!!!! If you have a Mazda and feel a need to go to dealership for your repairs, I strongly suggest you choose the new Mazda Dealership that recently opened in Oxnard. I realize it is an extra distance, and I believe this one I dealt with in Thousand Oaks counts on the fact that most people really don't have other choices nearby so they take advantage of that fact. I can also highly recommend Star Automotive in Newbury Park. I have found them knowledgeable and honest.
Refused to Accept a Lease Return - jw211
I tried to return a lease of a CX-5 on a Saturday. They told me that they had no room and did not accept lease returns on weekends. He told me to come back the next Friday. I was told to call Chase Finance to get an inspection, but they weren't open on weekends. On Monday, I called Chase and they could not schedule a pre-inspection before I left town on vacation. I called the dealer back and spoke to Abraham. He told me that they had no room, may have to park the car on the street and would not accept a lease return without a pre-inspection per GM Nazir. He fist told me that Nazir was not there. Then he put me on hold to talk to Nazir. Then he told me to call back and ask for Nazir. He told me that they "refused" to take it back otherwise. I've never experience such poor customer service from a dealer. Avoid this dealership. My experience was exactly the same as all other lease return reviews. Never again.
The Hands Down Worst Business Experience I've Ever Had - erikschmitt
WARNING: Do NOT get a car here.
(Feb. 2015) I mistakenly leased a Mazda 3 here while still in a lease with Hyundai (for some reason I thought it ended the same week I went to Mazda). I freaked out, called Mazda and went in the next day.
When I got there I met with Coty – the manager who leased me the Mazda 3 the day before. He sat me down and had me wait for him for about 30 minutes. While waiting for him, I spoke with a salesperson there and told him what happened. He told me it should be a pretty easy fix.
When Coty returned I re-explained to him what happened, told him that it was totally my fault and apologized and that I wanted to get out of the lease. He told that that couldn’t be done because all of the paperwork had been sent in and processed. I said there must be something that could be done and that I would even take a lower model for a lower price, he said that this couldn’t be done either. I went back and forth with him for a while and he told me what he could do is cover one of the payments on my lease. This would involve me writing a check to Mazda for a bigger deposit on my current Mazda 3 for the amount of 2 payments on my Hyundai, and then Mazda in turn would send Hyundai a check for 3 payments.
I refused this offer initially because I thought Mazda wouldn’t actually follow through with it. I also thought it was weird that I could totally somehow still pay a bigger deposit on my car if all the paper work had already been sent in and processed.
I wasn’t satisfied with Coty’s answers and told him I also felt like I got a bad deal on the car and told him about the lease deal I saw on the website for the more expensive SUV. He said it’s because the Mazda 3s’ sell so he can’t give me a better deal but can somehow magically offer a car that costs $5000 more for the same price.
After getting frustrated with Coty’s answers, I told my story to the original saleswoman I spoke with before Coty came in to negotiate with me the day before. She was helpful and said we could go talk to the manager Vahe to see what could be done. On our way to Vahe bumped into Coty. Coty asked us what we were doing and she told him that we were going to speak to Vahe. He said that Vahe went home. She thanked him for letting us know and she brought me to go see someone else.
On our way to go see this other person, Coty caught up with us and told us to follow him. She asked him where we were going. He said ‘we’re going to see Vahe.’ Weird. Coty had just said Vahe went home. More red flags for Coty.
Turns out Coty just took me into Vahe’s office to CHEW ME OUT for not wanting the car. I again explained I made a huge mistake not checking the dates and that I really needed to get out of the lease. The car saleswoman tried to defend me but he snapped at her. She became quiet and left the room. Coty asked me how it was his fault that I leased two cars. I told him that I never once said that I was his fault, that I had just made a huge mistake and needed help. He told me that I would need to take the car home that night or that he would have a tow company tow the car to my house and send me the bill. He also said he did try to help me with a ‘generous’ offer of covering on of my lease payments and that I didn’t accept his offer so I ‘didn’t even want his help.’
I finally agreed to accept his offer because I can’t afford to pay for two car lease payments + a car tow bill.
I go into the leasing manager’s office to complete the deal where Mazda covers one of my Hyundai lease payments. I asked if I would need to write a new check for my deposit and the leasing manager said no, he already had the original check and showed me my original lease papers and original check for the deposit. They hadn’t been sent it and processed like Coty said they had. Another lie.
For this lease payment deal to happen, I had to sign a new paper saying my lease was changing and then I had to resign my lease papers. ANOTHER lie. I could have gotten the lower model or totally cancelled.
After all of this, a few weeks later I find out that Coty/Mazda has not sent in the check to cover my Hyundai payments. I ended up making another payment on my Hyundai.
I called the finance manager at Mazda to tell him that it hasn’t been paid. He told me he would call me back in 15 minutes. I called him back 2 hours later leave a message – nothing. I call again the next day and leave a message. Nothing. So on and so on. Called Coty, the manager of Sierra Mazda, Vahe, left a messages, didn’t hear back.
After a week of trying to get a hold of someone at Sierra Mazda I was transferred to Sierra Chevy by mistake. I told the finance manager there my story and she walked over to Sierra Mazda to have someone talk to me and find out what happened. After she spoke to Mazda, they finally called me and sent the check in. I seriously had to call CHEVY to get a hold of Mazda.
