Top Notch Service with a Smile! - Acura4Li
It was a long and daunting Journey but the road finally led me to Acura (whoever said it's all about the journey and not about the destination is lying - at least with car shopping). Anyway, I never really thought about an Acura, but I was in the neighborhood and decided to check them out and so glad I did! Eddie was on the floor that evening and carefully listened to what I was looking for in a car (disclaimer: Eddie was my former awesome neighbor). Based on my criteria, he put me in touch with an ILX. They should call him the "Car Matchmaker". It was love at first sight! Everything about the car is freaking awesome and couldn't be more happier. The price was great, the staff were awesome (even the finance guy) and the whole car buying process went smooth as silk. Earlier today, I went back to the dealership to follow up on my floor mats and saw Eddie chatting with another customer, and I must say, he genuinely cares and will personally see through to the end that the customers needs are met. I normally don't take the time to write reviews, but my whole experience at Marin Acura thus far hasn't been anything short of stellar. I would definitely recommend you consider them for your next car purchase - I know I will when it comes time to retire my wife's tired BMW X3.
Awesome experience @Acura of Pleasanton!! - Veera
Stephen Lao is a great resource. My first Acura RDX purchased from him @ Acura Pleasanton. He is Very helpful and Keeps you informed about every little things right from the time he is assigned to you and till the handover of the car. Whole process of researching, selecting, trading my old car, Financing, purchasing (we've done both), and final delivery at the dealership was an extremely efficient and very pleasant experience. They do a great job of handling all the details and simplifying the buying process. We plan to come back to Stephen Lao and Acura Pleasanton in the future!
Thanks to Stephen Lao, Gabriel and Sam!!

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.

Car needs repair few days after purchase - Hasson M
I trusted Acura of serramonte because they are a sonic dealer, I purchased a 2014 Mercedes cla 250 on July 29 2017 I noticed an unusual sound, and after a diagnostic check by Mercedes a few days after my purchase it needs the rear differential replaced and cost $6,500 to repair, Which They aren't willing to pay or help pay for, I have no idea how this car was sold to me in this condition, I regret buying from them because of this situation, I really thought I could trust sonic.
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!
Loves holding on to inventory - PB from Fresno
Spoke with the internet manager on a 2013 Toyota Sequoia that they had in inventory for 60 days. The Carfax showed a goofy second owner that had put on 8k miles on the car in two months. They were asking $35,888 which is on the high end of what the car was worth. I offered $32,500, which was really at the top end of what the vehicle was really worth. The counter offer?..... Nothing!!! Our advertised price is as low as we will go. I sent Kelly an e-mail letting them know that I think they are crazy and moved on.
Heading to Anaheim to purchase a 2012 Toyota Sequoia with 4x4 which is also something we really wanted. It is a year older and has 6,000 more miles. The price? $27,000. It is almost like they think the internet doesn't exist and we only can find cars from them. After reading the other reviews on their poor service, I am glad I didn't end up dealing with these folks.
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.
