The Best of the Best - CaptAl
Galpin Jaguar is simply amazing! Their "culture" is based on customer satisfaction and I can attest that I'm beyond satisfied with the top tier service that I received from the time that I walked in the door and special ordered my car to the time that my new Jag XE R-Sport was delivered. BTW, I'm a repeat customer thanks in no small part to VIP sales rep Eric Felder who is the most amazing auto sales person that I have ever dealt with -- and there have been many. I heartily recommend Galpin and suggest that you use Eric too!
Fantastic service - Bernie
Great people and service at all times. Scott is excellent as are Christian and Jenna. They care and that creates customer loyalty. They are a vital core of the dealership.

Just purchased a 2008 550i from Dave at Silver Star. Not a high pressure salesman at all. Very friendly. Had us in and out of there in 45 minutes. Would definitely do business again with Silver Star. And especially with Dave.This is also our second car purchased from Silver Star.

Great car and staff - Shepserv
I was looking and found what I thought would be my car. Got back to the dealer and it was sold! They found another car that was very close but satisfied my requirements better with less cost! Good job to Chris!
Quick and Enjoyable experience - Peter Ayyoub
Brandon was a great salesman, super fun salesman and the entire sale was quick and enjoyable. Allowed us to test drive whichever car we wanted, and i can honestly say i was more then satisfied with the service and pricing i received.
A good first experience with Jaguar - Chris
Leased a beautiful Jaguar XE from British Motor Cars of San Francisco the other day. Overall, a really great experience. AJ made the leasing process straight-forward and easy, I would definitely recommend you seek him out if you're in the market for a JLR product. Unfortunately, not all the staff is as helpful as AJ. The first time I went into the dealer, the salesperson I spoke with basically told me if I wasn't planning on moving forward that day, they weren't going to show me a car, and, when leasing my vehicle the other day, the sales manager was rather unprofessional. The sales manager continually spoke down to me and acted as though I had no clue about the value of my trade-in, and repeatedly mixed-up numbers while discussing terms. This is the 4th vehicle I have been involved in the purchase of this year alone, and my first Jaguar product. I would certainly do business with British Motor Car Distributors again, and recommend them to friends and family, just make sure you ask for AJ.
Great Customer Service - Zayne123
It did take some time to get my car back but I expect that since I expect quality work. Adrian was great with giving me updates and letting me know exactly when to come pick my car up. Thank you!
Poor Service - Car
This dealership doesn't value its loyal customers. I have dealt with the service department now for 7 years. I have consistently found them to be well below the standards of other dealerships. The service advisors (Myke and Ray) do very well communicating with me. However, the routine service always take longer than expected. The other annoying thing is their nickle and dime approach with loaners. They never have a Land Rover loaner, it is always a very basic low model Jaguar with no options. If I go to any other dealership, they give me at least the same brand of car!!! I am always expected to pay the taxes on the car because of some excuse they have regarding their arrangement with Enterprise. After complaining about all these things, the service department manager, despite multiple attempts, will not return my phone call. When I contacted the salesperson I purchased the vehicle from, he assured me that I would be contacted by the service manager, but to no avail. They don't value their customers and I will not be purchasing any more cars from this dealership.
Incredible Experience - Karen G
I had been shopping around for awhile in search of a luxurious car and was turned off by the lack of customer service at nearby dealerships especially at Maserati, in which, was my 1st choice. I refuse to do business with any company that doesn't appreciate and value their potential clients. I drove by Hornburg Jaguar and decided to give it one more shot. Immediately, I was welcomed by Guy by his warm smile and approach. He was extremely knowledgable about every car and the company history. I test drove a beautiful car and fell in love with it. Guy was wonderfully patient at showing me all the incredible features of the vehicle. He made my decision-making so enjoyable and completely stress-free. By far, this was the quickest and best experience I've ever had in purchasing a car. The next day I drove off in my beautiful new car!! Thank you, GUY!!! You're absolutely the BEST!!
Ripped off, sold a car with modified emissions. - rippedoff240
I had a horrible experience here, they are a bunch of shady crooks. I purchased a Ford Focus ST from this dealer in 2016, we had nothing but issues with it. We went through 2 engines in under 2 years as well as a variety of transmission and clutch issues. My main beef with this dealer is in regards to the engine. We found out this car had an aftermarket ECU modification done which lead to the cause of our engines blowing both times. Jaguar swore up and down they had checked this car thoroughly and found no modifications at all! Even though we have pictures of the car the night we bought it with an aftermarket exhaust, blow off valve and racing brakes on it. Funny how their techs can't even recognize when a car has been modified. Those minor modifications were not the big deal, it was the ECU modification we found which caused our aftermarket service contract warranty that jaguar sold us to be void.
So now were sitting here with a car dead that we can't get a new motor (almost $9000) and jaguar refused responsibility for selling us a car with illegal modified emissions. They denied everything, they stopped responding to my calls and emails as well. They refused to pay for their mistake, had we known this car had a tune on it we never would have purchased it. They tried to blame the auction they bought the car from, the dealer the auction bought the car from and then the dealer who replaced my first motor under factory warranty saying that they would have noticed any aftermarket modifications at that time. We all know dealer techs are extremely incompetent, although we asked that dealer to check, they didnt even look and just said no. The management at jaguar are absolutely positive that the dealership would have noticed and theres no way that they could have such an incompetent staff. (Theres a reason we no longer go to that ford dealer).
I am now out a car, while still making monthly payments on it. Jaguar refuses to do anything about it and has now ignored me. Don't buy a used sporty car from this dealer, their techs are clearly incompetent, the management does not care. I own a small business myself and we always fix mistakes no matter how big and sometimes even when its not directly our fault either because thats what a good business does, but not jaguar! They are not a good business, they make more than enough money to cover our loss and own up to their mistakes. They did not inspect this car, they should have never sold us a warranty and we got completely ripped off on this piece of crap.
I don't normally write 1 star reviews but this place is terrible.
Horrible customer service - Salon Muse 123
Finally have the car of my dreams are Range Rover bring it to the Serrito‘s dealership to have new emblems put on it my appointment was at 9:30 they didn’t start working on my car till a quarter till 11 it is now 1230 it is still not done everybody you talk to Send you to somebody else if you’re going to run that far behind you need to have the common courtesy to call people and let them know that first thing in the morning
I would give Jaguar of San Jose a minus 200 if I could. - Not Happy Smith
We leased a $79,000 J. for 3yrs. At the very end of agreeing on price, seller said when we turn the car in, there is a $300 fee, we had to buy new tires and replace or repair the alloy rims. At that time we were outraged, but we basically had no choice because of needing to get back to work. The extra cost could be a around be around $2000.00.
During our lease period, we had problems with the service department. 1. Our battery died for no apparent reason. We had it towed to the dealership.
They told us they would replace it that day. Three days later we got the car back. 2. We had two other bad service experiences, but I am running out of time now.
The staff was not pleasant at any time we took the car in, and always made us wait for over one half hour almost every time we were there, and usually no customers waiting but us.
Fast forward to turning the car in when car expired.
We went to turn the car, but
still liked the car, but the sales person made the purchase so high-approx $10,000 on top of what we already paid. We found out later they scammed us and did not tell us we could make a deal with Chase Bank, who owned the car. We also found out from Chase that the car was put into auction and probably purchased back by the same dealership.
These people are nice before you purchase or lease a car, and rude, dishonest and I believe probably breaking the law or just unethical!!
Now I find myself being charged $1400 for over mileage, which is a lie, because I was never given a closing mileage document. Chase bank does not have a mileage document either.
This, San Jose Jaguar is the worst company we have ever dealt with. By the way, my wife is a retired Teacher of 40 years and I owned a painting contracting business, retired after 40 yrs. we always pay our bills and are debt free. We both came from lower income families. We are honest, and hard working people.
SOLD ME A VEHICLE THAT WASN'T INSPECTED CORRECTLY - philm
I purchased a CPO Range Rover Sport on 4/14/17 from Hornburg. Less than a week of having the vehicle I experienced issues with the vehicle along with certain issues that were against the CPO (certified pre owned) rules. This not only makes me think that the dealership is properly trained to certify vehicles but how they even handle vehicles in service and if they service them properly or not. After many attempts with the dealership staff/management I got no response I wrote an email to their marketing group which I found online. I wanted to give them a opportunity to make things right so I didn't write a review since I know people make mistakes and deserve a 2nd chance. Well I was hoping it wouldn't get this far but I am sitting in the same position since when I purchased my car. Nobody returning my calls, I have written to the General Manager and no response. Only one who has been great so far is the sales person and he can only do so much and relay the message so many times.
After taking my car in for service on 4/27 they made an appointment to fix the issues that were supposed to be right the first time. Well, the car sat there for 2 months. I picked up the car on 6/24/17. They could not figure out the issues with the vehicle and it took them 2 months and they figured it out. I don't think so, after the car being there 2 months it still had the same issue with the door lock. I took it to my local dealer and they fixed it in 1 hour!! AMAZING. You can see I'm frustrated and hate the fact it got to this point where I need to voice myself since nobody cares to reach out to me especially the General Manager, Sales Managers, and Service Manager.
I will be filing a complaint with the Land Rover Rep for service for not being compliant with their Certified Pre Owned program. BAR association will also be getting my complaint.
So if you're in the market for a pre owned or even new Land Rover, make sure you check elsewhere, especially if you are planning on servicing your vehicle there.
Jay was terrific!!! - Christine S.
I was looking for car and Jay was so helpful to me. I did not know what car I wanted and had not looked at cars in years. Jay listened to what I thought I wanted in a car, asked some really pertinent questions and then showed me some great options. He spent a lot of time with me, answered my questions and never pressured me at all. I ended up buying a car that I love and fits my needs. It was a pleasant experience and I would recommend Jay and the dealership to everyone. Thank you Jay!!
Then there's Niello Jaguar in Sacramento - dealerratervincams
There are many great dealerships with helpful people that sell and service good cars.
Then there's Niello Jaguar in Sacramento, California. It is truly an excellent culture of people who create this great dealership! When it comes to selling a quality product, ensuring that the buyer is pleased with the sale & the car and exceeding customer expectations, at Niello Jaguar these things are second nature.
They have acted in the most professional and respectful and bend over backward way to keep me happy, even after the sale, even though I live 2100 miles away. Even here in Chicago, they made repairs to my vehicle they thought should have been fixed before I bought it.
I looked all over the country for an '05-'08 Super V8. I had cars inspected in four states. None showed better in pictures and eventually in person than the car I found in Sacramento. It was certainly the farthest destination. After comparing 40+ Super V8 and Vanden Plas models, I decided to go to Sacramento and check out the one they had in inventory with the full intention of buying it and driving it back to Chicago. They repaired several major items before I ever saw the car. After we inked the deal their General Manager, Richard Farler, had the heater core replaced. It took all day but he didn't charge me. He arranged for transportation for me at his cost. Now back in Chicago, we identify a suspension is#10sue. He's fixing that for me too. These were the final over the top steps Niello Jaguar did for me.
Before the purchase there's the work of my Sales Consultant, Zach Mongston. He is a great listener, professional in his manner, enthusiastic with his clients at all times, and responsible above and beyond he even came in on his days off to help me with the purchase logistics. I asked for well over 60 additional photos of the car and Zach took all of them. He arranged for many special items with my car before I arrived from cleaning to polishing the wheels to buffing the entire car. At one point he was taking care of small cleaning details just to make the car spotless for me. I don't think he ever received a commission on my purchase due to the negative gross on the car.
Finally, at the heart of any service company is its dedicated employees. Todd Landvik, Used Car Manager and Daniel Giles, Sales Manager both were instrumental in working on details before I arrived that kept my stay in Sacramento to a minimum, they helped me ship my own car back to Chicago and expedited the paperwork.
Jorge Vega, the man of the year to me, fixed so many things on my car. He really made my purchase possible. I would have walked away if that car didn't run so well and would have kicked myself if it fell apart after I bought it.
Gina Parr, Jackie Edwards and Cara Feld made the finance portion and paperwork before, during and after happen seamlessly and flawlessly.
And while I was waiting for two days while Jorge did repairs in the back, Tonya Stoup in service, Spencer Sughrue in sales and Ailya Ireland-Shelton in the office kept me company and made me feel like a part of the Niello family.
There are many times I want to write a bad review about some service, not many times when I feel like writing a good one. With Niello Jaguar's "out of the park" service and dealership culture I don't see how I could not write a true review of my experience.
Thank you all.
WOW!! Simply stated, one of the best vehicle service... - zekester60
WOW!! Simply stated, one of the best vehicle service experience to date. If the Sanra Barbara Auto Group was trying to changed a failed image of the past, they greatly succeeded. Whatever you experienced before; forget it!! Come back and give this dealership another try; you won't be disappointed. I was very sceptical about coming back to this service department because of the sub-par service we had received in the past. Am I glad I changed my mind! Our Service Technician, Jee Thao, from the beginning, treated us with kindness, courtesy and respect. We've been back twice so far with the most recent event happening in April 2012. Our vehicle had been acting up while we were on vacation. We were on our way home that night and rather than coming back the next day, which would have been out of the way, we decided to crop it off on the way home. We'll as luck would have it, traffic was bad and we ran late. One call to Jee and the problem was solved. Not only did this guy stay until we arrived, he had a loaner vehicle ready to go for us to complete our trip. He gave us all the information we needed swiftly and accurately. He made no false promises; just the straight answers. During the entire process, he kept us informed and avaliable for us if we had any questions. Well, I did call and got his voicemail. I thought to myself, I'm not getting a call back for a couple of days. Boy was I wrong!! He immediately returned my call and had the answers. End result: My vehicle is running great and it didn't cost me a fortune for the repairs. Way to go Santa Barbara Auto Group. You restored my confidence and will, without a doubt, see you first when I purchase my next car. Needless to say, I will return to your service department, if needed for any needed repairs on my vehicle.
