Rolando was top notch. I couldn't have asked for a better car buying experience. I am extremely thankful for meeting such a great staff at Wilde Honda of Sarasota. Thank you! Sincerely, Justin Cichowski
"Always been first class to work with"
I have purchased about 10 cars from this dealership and sent many people whom have also purchased. Everyone is first class, from sales, managers to service. I highly recommend this dealership
"Friendly and low key"
We worked with both Larry and Diego. Both were extremely knowledgeable, courteous and helpful. It was the most no pressure car purchase I have ever made. Highly recommend them both to provide you with a pleasurable experience.

" LARRY BRIDEN AND STEVE HIMMEL ARE FANTASTIC! "
I purchased a 20127 HONDA ACCORD from your dealership - sales person LARRY BRIDEN- ON 07/08/2017. This is the second HONDA that I have purchased from your dealership and Larry was my sales person. I enjoyed working with Larry on both occasions. i asked for Larry personally. Larry makes you feel very comfortable because of his personality and great knowledge of HONDA'S. LARRY works with you and he is by your side through out the entire process of purchasing a car. HE IS NOT A "PRESSURE SALES PERSON".HIS POSITIVE PRESENTATION AND ATTITUDE MAKE YOU WANT TO BUY A HONDA. His experience and knowledge is very present in his speech and attitude. He is by far a expert sales person. I, also, had the pleasure of working with STEVE HIMMEL. H, also, makes you very comfortable and his knowledge and experience is very well presented. Both gentleman leave you with a great respect and appreciation of your dealership and the work that these two gentleman do. I greatly enjoyed working with them and I am certainly enjoying my new car. thank you very much. Your service department is exceptional.

"What a difference"
- Trevor P
I've bought more cars in the last 20 years than a sane man should, and have delt with some good and some not so good dealers and sales people. My experience with Larry Briden, as well as everyone I dealt with at Wilde Honda, was amazing. The most low pressure relaxed atmosphere I could have imagined. A manager, Greg Cox, stopped in early on in the negotiations and was straight forward, here are the facts and numbers, and no pressure. Even the finance guy, Stephen Morris, was a nice guy. Seriously, a non-pushy, nice guy in finance? This does not take into account the incredible deal Stephen got me for my financing. (Thanks agian for that Steve)
My wife was at my with me the whole time and even she never felt the least bit anxious. We love the used Tacoma we took home, Wilde Honda was such a great experience that I highly recommend anyone looking for a car in the area, new or used, stop in and talke to someone.
Thanks agian Larry, Greg, and Stephen;

"Our Honda happiness continues!"
- Erik and Lesley
After 13 great years with our 2002 Odyssey we were ready to move on -- Honda quality and great service from Guy Worcester and all the crew at Wilde made our decision to consider the 2017 CR-V an easy one. Larry Briden helped us check it out and then order one just right for us. When it was delivered he and Steve Morris worked with us to finalize the deal so that we can look forward to many more years of safe and happy driving.
"Larry Briden and Iane Da Silva, Superstars"
- Maureen Baltzer
Larry is such a pleasure to work with. Having worked as a commission sales manager for almost 40 years, I have trained and worked with hundreds. My husband and I had a great experience at Sarasota Wilde. Clients buy from you if they like you and believe you....Larry has the highest rating for both!
I would also like to mention Iane Da Silva, Delivery Specialist. She was thorough and so pleasant. We have a lot of new options on our 2017 Accord Touring and Iane went beyond her duties. She hooked up both of our phones, showed us shortcuts and even programmed our radio.
Ending I want to thank my Service Advisor , Juanita Silva for taking care of my 2011 Accord and for referring me to Larry when I wanted a new vehicle!
Kudos to them !!

"Sales Associate Larry Briden the Best in the Business"
Up until this past week, I had leased 4 Honda Accords over the years. Wednesday, I receive a call from Larry Briden asking if I wanted a new car (even though I still had about 8 months left on my old lease). Sure, I said. Several hours later I was driving off the lot with a brand new Honda Accord... my fifth.
Larry Briden is the kind of salesman who cares more about the customer than the sale itself. He has always managed to get me into a new Accord at the price I wanted to pay... even if he had to work really hard at it. One year, he called and said he had a car that met my needs. I asked if he had a black one. He said he didn't. "That's okay. I'll take what you have," I told him. Ten minutes later, he called me back and told me he had a black one for me. The sale was already made, and he kept trying to get me exactly what I wanted. That is the kind of person he is.
He gives me great advice on how to get the best for my buck. As long as Larry is still at Wilde Honda, I'll be leasing cars from them.
"Great Honda Dealer"
- Sharon M Guy
I have worked with Wilde Honda for many years of leasing, buying, and service. It's always been a great experience, which is why I stay with them.
"Painless car leasing"
This is my first time leasing a car. I researched well and drove several cars. It all stopped when I got to Wilde Honda in Sarasota. I had called ahead, spoke to Bob Gregory, gave him the details of what I needed. Arrived at the dealership, met with him and Larry Briden and in no time had a deal. Then went to Steve in Finance and the great experience continued. Cannot praise all three enough for their handling of getting me into beautiful new CRV. Picked it up today and love it already. Thank you all so much!
