Martha was a wonderful sales person to deal with the purchase of our 2020 Honda. She was very courteous and professional. She returned our calls and kept us up to date throughout the sale. She was easy to talk to, very sweet and always smiling. We will definitely give her a call for our future purchases. Brooks Nelson
"The people here were fantastic. They made this experience..."
The people here were fantastic. They made this experience enjoyable, and about as painless as possible. Mark, even while training another employee, maintained composure and was nothing but helpful and patient in helping me figure out the car that was best for me. Bob, although only spoken to briefly, was also helpful and thorough and I appreciated his help. Mike in financing really rounded out this experience for me, and was great to chat with all while helping me get the best financing plan possible. These guys were simply phenomenal and I highly recommend visiting them when looking to get yourself into a new vehicle.
"FIRST-IN-CLASS SERVICE: Bob Gregory & Dan from Kansas"
- Honda C-RV 2019 Lease
I needed a new car right away and had spent the day meeting with sales reps at Toyota, Nissan, and Subaru, and my last call was to Honda. As soon as Bob Gregory answered the phone I knew I was having a completely different customer experience-he immediately provided me with direct, honest, factual answers to all of my questions about leasing a car in my price range. Bob's authenticity prompted me to drive over to Honda where he warmly greeted me, and I was astounded when he showed me that in the time it took me to drive to their location on I-41 Bob had researched all of the Toyota, Nissan, Subaru vs. Honda product comparison questions I had asked over the phone (i.e, cargo space, gas mileage, safety ratings, etc.) and written all of the data of a piece of paper for me to keep. Bob then promptly introduced me to "Dan from Kansas" who patiently demonstrated all of the Honda CR-V features, showed me a variety of color options, took me for a test drive, and introduced me to the finance lead and made completing the paperwork simple and easy for me. Dan has followed up with me several times since leasing my awesome Honda CR-V to ensure I was beyond thrilled with my new car!
The reason I am happily driving my new Honda CR-V (not a Nissan, Toyota, or Subaru) is because of the honesty, integrity, kindness, product knowledge, and hard work ethic of Bob and Dan at Wilde Honda of Sarasota!
I cannot recommend Bob and Dan if you're looking for a trusted partner who really cares about your best interests.

It was a pleasure working with Mark Russell on purchasing my 2019 Ridgeline. Mark was very courteous and professional and one over every detail of the vehicle with me I was able to answer all of my questions about the vehicle that I wanted to purchase. Joe Doyle in finance made it absolutely painless going through all of the paperwork. Kenny and his team in service were excellent in their follow up to my purchase and in prepping my vehicle to go home. Bob Gregory, new sales manager, was very comforting as he oversaw every aspect. Great group of people, they work together flawlessly to make this experience the very best in a new car purchase that I’ve ever had.
"New CR-V Purchase"
- Emily Bell
This was my first experience with Wilde Honda. my husband had purchased a truck through Mark Russell, so I returned and had such a good experience, that it made me feel comfortable talking to him myself. Mark was able to answer all of my questions and gave clear instructions that I was very comfortable with. Bob Gregory, new car sales manager, was also very courteous and helpful to help finalize the deal. He went over everything about the deal and answered all of my questions. Joe Doyle in finance, made me feel very much at ease as all the paperwork was processed. Kenny and all of his team in the service department was able to meet all of my needs. They all did a wonderful job I have been to other dealers and found this one to be the most pleasant and professional experience. They all work together as a team to make this happen. I am very please with my CRV 2019. I would highly recommend this dealership to all my family and friends.
"Another Great Car Buying Experience"
This is my third car purchase from Wilde Honda. Their customer care and concern, excellent sales and service staff and large inventory will keep me coming back. They make car buying a delightful experience. Many thanks to Bob, Halim, Michael and the rest of the folks at Wilde Honda.
"Michael Malmsbury and Wilde Honda Great Experience"
We purchased a 2018 Odyssey from Honda dealer in Cincinnati on Dec 1st. The salesman told me very little about how to set and operate the many new features. We traveled to our winter residence and had to learn some of the simple features on our own as we traveled. After arriving in Sarasota, I went to Wilde Honda, told them I need help. Michael Malmsbury graciously greeted me, and professionally answered my long list of questions and demonstrated how to operate the features. Michael knows the product he sells. He is great asset to Wilde Honda
"Great people work at Wilde Honda of Sarasota!"
- Margie Sanfilippo
There was no pressure to buy, no haggling...best car buying experience I've ever had! Eduardo Gonzalez was the salesman, and you know he's working for you, not just for himself (or the commission). Great guy! Everyone else, from the manager (Bob) to the Business Manager (Brittany Moss), was friendly and accommodating. Got a great car at a great price, too! (Honda Civic)
"Fantastic Experience with the Type-R and Wilde of Sarasota!"
To preface, I bought the new 2017 Type-R from Wilde Honda of Sarasota.
This experience was as smooth as you can get from a dealer. I had called dealers all over the state on this car and Wilde seemed the most genuine about the process and were honest with me from the start. This is a car that some dealers are trying to price gouge people on, but Wilde was nothing but upstanding in this regard. I was not force-fed additional markup or anything of the sort. Everything was spelled out and honest.
I originally worked with Bob to start the process and he was absolutely awesome to work with! Always to the point, never beating around the bush like most dealer managers might do (from prior experience at least). Halim was my salesman and he was absolutely fantastic as well. He catered to whatever I needed during the sale process and was extremely kind - answering any questions I had at the time and getting everything right with the car. I had the pleasure of working with Joe for the finance section, and he was equally as honest and helpful! They were all very patient with me and I never felt rushed or pressured during the entire process. Everything went smoothly and I was out with my new car after trade in with no problems at all.
The car itself came in amazing condition and was roped off for me in the showroom upon arrival. It had low mileage and still had the wrapping on the seats as I requested. They even gave me a couple of the Type-R brochures and the poster to go with the first Type-R they sold there!
This whole dealership really is a great place and if you are looking for somewhere to buy your next Honda, this is it!
Thank you to everyone there!

Rreferred from Costco Auto Program, and almost immediately was contacted by Martha Calero. She remained my contact throughout and was very helpful explaining all details of the process and the operation of my choice, a CR-V EXL-Nav. Bob Gregory educated me on the Costco Program details, along with Greg Bowers who evaluated my trade ins. Financial details and DMV were done by Steve Himmel. All were on top of my questions. I have no complaints.
