"Nice people, Easy going"
- truck guy!
I was very impressed with the dealership from the time we arrived and still impressed after we purchased our new vehicle and headed out! I started my internet search with Jason Burdine but I failed to make an appointment with him to look at the truck we discussed and when I just showed up he wasn't scheduled to be at work till later in the day, so Mr. Chao stepped right up and was great to work with!.
The dealership was clean and obvioulsy a busy place, we meet the shop manager we would work with in the future and how they work in team groups for better customer service.
All the staff we worked with were friendly and non pushy!
"Easy, honest, choices in my best interest"
From the minute I had first contact with the staff I was greeted with the most helpful service I could have asked for. Charity helped set up my appointment, Jason let me know what to expect, and Jason and Kristen made sure to get me what I wanted. Kristen catered to all my needs asking me what I wanted and let me take the reigns in my shopping experience. When I chose the car I wanted Kristen walked me through my options and all the options were extremely simple and straightforward. Everything was very transparent anytime I had questions on prices or options I was shown the exact prices and nothing was hidden. The buying experience was exactly how it should be everywhere you go. I got exactly what I asked for.
"2019 Toyota Pickup Truck"
I worked with Denis to purchase a new truck. Denis went the extra mile to get me the best price for the truck I had specified. He stayed in contact with me and had everything well organized so our time to complete the purchase was very efficient and simple. He was very straight forward and none of the sales tactics which I have no patience for. I drove away with the truck I wanted and feel comfortable to contact Denis and he will helpful to my needs.
"Needed a used AWD Sienna, Toyota of Gladstone hooked me up."
Did lots of research and determined a Toyota Sienna all wheel drive was the vehicle for me. The price of a new one was a little out of my budget, so I looked for a premium used model, and my search led me to Toyota of Gladstone. The friendly folks at Gladstone were responsive to me from the get-go, and they had the car I wanted in their inventory. They took my old car as a trade-in, and that process went smoothly. A very knowledgeable, responsive staff made for a great car-buying experience.
"Did right by us."
- katie kat
Kristin was great to deal with up front but we ran into issues with getting the exact vehicle we wanted from an agreed upon location. After further discussion in person Charity (Kristin was off that day but called in) was able to locate the vehicle we wanted. The next day the team got back to us on scheduling the delivery (vehicle had to come from a different dealership), paper signing, and vehicle pickup which Kristin handled great. I would have rated this a 5 but the team that supports Kristin and Charity need to be sure to give them correct information during the sale, prompt updates and thorough communication to not only the customer but to the customer facing sales team.

"CA Resident Travels to Oregon to Purchase 4Runner"
- Alan Schilt
Recently I purchased a 2019 Toyota 4Runner Off Road Premium from Toyota of Gladstone in Oregon.
To sum things up, my experience there was fantastic and well beyond my expectations.
The team I worked with consisted of Jamie Wheeler-Semrad, Charity Graff and Bryan Dowd.
My first contact with the dealership was via e-mail with Jamie.
From the very first moment she was warm, caring and patient with all my question....and I had a lot.
I knew this purchase was a bit more complicated than most as I’m a CA resident buying out of state where issues such as CA & OR taxation, CA DMV registration, CA emission compliance and etc had to be dealt with and Jamie handled them all in a warm, caring, patient and knowledgeable way without any issues at all. The other complication is that I wanted the 4Runner set up in a particular way and she handled all of that in the same way which made the entire process so easy for me. I truly believe her motivation was that she simply wanted me to be happy with the vehicle and have a great buying experience at Gladstone of Toyota.
Jamie, I can't thank you enough for being such a kind person and helping me get the truck of my dreams!!
While working out all the details I also spoke with Charity Graff. She too was so helpful and nice which made things so easy. Actually, I think it's the culture at Gladstone of Toyota to be so helpful and nice....what a difference it makes!
On “car buying day” I flew up to Portland and was greeted at the airport by Jamie.
Once at the dealership she walked me through the entire process which turned out to be so easy and stress-free….and actually fun! One thing on the 4Runner I don’t like is the “chirp” sound that occurs when locking / unlocking the doors. After researching this on the internet I found out that it could be eliminated but I was also warned that only a tech (or someone with the correct software) could do it and apparently it doesn’t come cheap to have done. So I asked Jamie about this. Without any hesitation she takes me to the service department and we talk with the service writer. Next thing I know it's all taken care of......and get this…..no charge!!
For the next step I was greeted by Bryan Dowd of the finance dept and he walked me through the entire finance process and explained all the warranty, extended warranty and other items available for my new 4Runner. No hard sale or scare tactics like I’ve experienced in the past. He was a delight to work with and we talked a long time about family, traveling and life. After his explanations I went with all his recommendations which I’m quite pleased with.
Now it’s just the drive home in my new 4Runner…..I love it!!!
I want to thank each of you for such a wonderful car buying experience and treating me so wonderfully!!!
"Friendly and outgoing staff"
Jake was funny and friendly and he treats you like a friend that he hasn't seen in a long time. Tries his best to make you feel like you are the only customer he has. He doesn't make you feel rushed at all. You tell him what you want and he will show you it. He will also find out if it's in your budget and if it is not possible then he will give you comparable options. And anytime after the sale he will answer anymore questions you have. I could not ask for a better salesman. He is why I will be spreading the word about him and Gladstone Toyota.
"Sales crew bent over backward to make sure we were happy."
Carl Chestnut was our Sales person and he was very cordial, funny, and informative. After purchasing the car and driving off the lot, we discovered a problem with the car and returned to the dealership. The service department told us that they would not be able to look at it until the next day and, depending on the problem, it may take until the day after that to get it fixed. That really irritated me, and I could tell that Carl was very irritated as well. I told Carl that it made us leery about anything else that might be wrong with the car. Carl went to management and they got a brand new identical car from a Beaverton dealership and had it delivered the next day so we wouldn't worry about the original car. Carl and the Customer Relations department really bent over backward to make sure that we were happy and satisfied. Problems like the one we encountered happen, but I was impressed at the lengths that the group went through to make us happy.
"Sou went the extra mile great customer service and follow up"
I received an E mail from Sou he let me know when my new TRD Pro 4 Runner was coming in. He followed up with phone calls and even though he was at the coast he followed up with numerous phone calls he was on it we confirmed price and agreed on a deposit and delivery date!
Sou is truly an asset to Toyota of Gladstone! Great customer service!
Thanks for all your help,
