"the best dealer experience I have ever had"
Phil Puleo and his staff are very professional and honest. There are no tricks or false promises. My Mazda CX-5 is the fourth mazda I took from this dealership and couldn't be happier with the experience.
"Best Buying Experience Ever"
Have to say this was my easiest and least stressful purchase of a car in my life. Victor was a pleasure to deal with. No pressure.
The rest of the staff were also helpful and easy to deal with.
"Phil and Joe were honest, professional and friendly."
They made the whole process enjoyable and stress free. This is our second time working with Phil. We will continue to go back because of their exceptional service.
My first time at this dealership and my first Mazda. Everyone I dealt with was helpful and pleasant. My salesman Josh knew his stuff and didn't pressure me into anything I didn't need. I've purchased from two other dealerships in the past and this was by far the best.

From the moment my daughter and I walked into the showroom, we were welcomed warmly and without the "sales pressure." I haven't car shopped in a long time, and was ready for any salesman that thought they could take advantage of 2 women. Well, not the case at Wantagh Mazda. Phil, Victor, and Charlie were amazing. No pressure and listened to our concerns. We brought my husband back to the showroom with us and ended up leasing 2 cars. I didn't want to go to any another dealership because they made us feel so comfortable and worked so well with us. Thanks you guys! I would recommend you to everyone!
"10+ years leasing from Wantagh Mazda/Phil Puelo"
My family has been leasing cars from Wantagh Mazda, and Phil Puelo in particular, for over ten years. I have written 'bout Phil in the past, and the positive factors still remain, and it's really very simple (as it should be): When working with Phil, the experience, as well as "the deal" is ALWAYS straightforwardly honest and fair - that's it in a nutshell, and I have always appreciated that. Also, a shout out this time to Joe B. (working with Phil) who was spot on in in displaying knowledge and patience in explaining and making sure we were totally familiar with accessories/features before leaving with our newly leased CX-5. Once again, thank you Phil,, and the free donuts on Saturdays is always a welcomed nice touch too.....Mitch Suval
"Charlie D. review"

As soon as I walked in everyone was nice. My salesperson was Henry Gochez. What I liked best was I was not pushed. I was given prices, and made to feel like "I mattered".
What I liked was all the sales staff seemed to work together and they al;l seemed to get along. The manager was pleasant.
As far as making a purchase on my CX-5, Henry was excellent in preparing everything.
All in all, A great dealership and a great salesman!
"Great customer service turned bad"
- simone t
Summer of 2017 I went to this dealership to lease a Mazda CX-3. I can’t remember the mans name who helped me but I got nothing but kindness and 5 star customer service while there. I thought for sure I would be back at the end of my lease to get something new from Wantagh Mazda since they were so great.
Unfortunately my circumstances changed and I find myself about halfway through my current lease and needing to get into a larger vehicle, and I knew that switching from the cx-3 to the cx-5 would be a solution.
My first instinct was to call Wantagh Mazda to see what my options are, and whoever I got on the phone was rude and condescending. Instead of giving me my options he basically laughed at me and told me there was nothing they could do. After asking to at least hear my options of how much I would have to pay to get out of my lease and into a new one he said he would call me back. When he called back his tune still hadn’t changed and he told me once again only that it would be very expensive, they couldn’t do anything for me, and that I should just deal with it and wait it out (which is not an option for me). At this point I asked if they could do anything for me at all since I’m a returning customer of Mazda and the dealership, and he said “yeah yeah but it doesn’t help.”
Now I find myself calling other dealerships of other car brands and getting solutions to my problem. I’m incredibly disappointed and appalled at the way I was treated - something I never expected after my original experience. I would love to be a happy customer that could post a review about how great my experience was but I’m sad to say that now my only clear memory was the disrespect I received this last time.
"great experience "
Phil was very helpful and professional. He did not pressure me and answered every question I had. I would recommend him to anyone who was looking for a Mazda.
Both Charile Fizzuoglio and Phil Puleo went above and beyond to give us the best car buying experience I've ever had. Got a new Mazda CX3 which I love. I like how we felt like we were actually being cared about, unlike other dealerships in the area. You can really tell it's family owned. You can't go wrong with Wantagh Mazda!
