The Way It Needs To Be

Our sales guy here at Community Toyota, Darren M., made our car buying experience the way it always needs to be. A lot of the time, I find that I know more about the vehicle than the sales guy. This was not the case this time. Darren could tell us everything about the vehicle plus some. No pressure sales guy that worked WITH us to get us in the vehicle we wanted for a fair price. He took the time to explain ALL features of the vehicle before AND after our purchase. The GM was easily accessible which made negotiating a smoother process. I went in there with a specific vehicle in mind, as well as specific numbers. Not only did the numbers match up perfect, but I was able to drive away in a higher trim level than what I originally went in there for. Any time you can leave a dealership feeling like you got a good deal, that's a win. Especially with it being a reliable brand such as Toyota.

Good personnel at service center. Updated on progress of service and needed repairs while sitting in customer waiting area. Excellent self-serve coffee bar and sitting arrangement. Spotless clean restroom floors, walls and stalls, and mirrored hand-wash basin area. The Toyota Center provides a sense of professionalism and competence in all encountered employees, which are friendly and helpful when approached and spoken unto.

Great Experience! I was looking into 4x4 Tacoma and found a white $ Runner I fell in love with! Carrisa Watson was my sales Lady, she was super helpful and totally honest! I felt like I knew her for years. She made me feel comfortable and didn't pressure me at all. The Finance guy and main GM were both Marines and I enjoyed talking with them and they both made me feel like I knew them for years! I would highly recommend this dealership to anyone who wants a hassle free good deal!!!

Community Stands Out

This is the 2nd vehicle I've gotten from Community Toyota. Scott Daigle has been the Sales Rep for both. Community stands out from the Corporate, multi-state dealers in one important way : I trust everyone I've met. That's not the case at big dealers. People are generally good. Given the chance, they'll try to do the right thing. But at multi-state dealers, staff isn't really given the chance to do the right thing. Everyone is just punching their ticket and getting a sale any way they can. Their systems are set up to force that kind of behavior - hiring, firing, promotion, pay, etc. The leadership at Community are members of the community. They'll personally live with the consequences of a bad deal, a lapse of ethics and other ill will - for a really long time. That long-term view - that a customer is a long-term relationship, not a transaction, flows through the entire dealership. Community is the perfect Toyota dealer. They work hard, they don't boast or brag and they're both reliable. I feel the same way about Community that I feel about Toyota. I trust them and will choose them in any situation where the "deal" terms are close.

I had an amazing experience at this dealership. I was their first corona virus customer so I couldnt come into the dealership. However the customer experience over the phone and messages on status updates and videos of my car from my sales women Carissa Watson was beyond expectation and took customer service to another level. She sent me a video test driving my car to make sure my concerns were met and sent me a video or picture of each step in the process. Had a true ley memorable experience.

I had the best experience with Carrisa Watson at the Baytown Community Toyota. I started out at another dealership and it was not going well, so I decided that today was not going to be the day. But I decided to just drive through and Carrisa was outside eager to help, as I drove the parking lot she just waved and said hi and that was the exact opposite of my first stop. Well I parked my car and two hours later I left in my new Rav4 Limited Edition. Thank you Carrisa Watson for all your hard work and dedication to the word customer service.

I enjoyed my experience at this dealership. Kevin Aviles my sales rep and Chris in finance were my dream team in answering all of my questions and making me feel comfortable. I am terrified of dealerships and the long extensive processes, but this experience made me feel comfortable and aware that not all dealerships are the same. Chris answered all of my questions and got me a great deal. I APPRECIATE THE TIME YOU GUYS SPENT HELPING ME!! I’ll definitely refer this dealership to my colleagues, family, friends, and customers

Everyone there was very friendly & extremely professional. I want to especially thank Jennifer who was the sales associate helping me out through the entire process. She was totally awesome & I highly recommend her if you want a stress free car shopping experience! She was completely laid back & chill, not pushy at all. I loved that part of the experience & she helped me to pick out the perfect car for me, a Toyota C-HR, which I'm totally in love with!!! Thank you so much! ❤

Jennifer did an incredible job securing this vehicle. It took several weeks to find what I wanted. She kept me informed the entire time in a professional manner, She represents Community very positively and I believe is a valuable asset. Dave also worked well with me over those long weeks and also reflects Community in a positive manner. I also was very pleased with Carlos. He is a knowledgeable professional.

I was in need of having my car repaired and they were able to tell me rather quickly what the real issue was (water pump) and how long it would take to fix it. Dustin was able to take care of everything in a timely and I appreciate him being so kind and polite. When the repairs were completed, both Dustin and the mechanic (Guy) were kind enough to let me know what was going on, what they did and how everything looked. Your staff is wonderful. Please keep up the good work and I will be back for any other issues.

Weve been all over the South east area searching for a vehicle for weeks and community Toyota was by far and away the best dealership out there. They were friendly, knowledgeable, fast and treated us like family. We got an amazing deal on a new vehicle their finance team knows how to work in your favor. Our salesman even came in on his day off to help us with the process and answer any and all questions we had. Stayed in contact with us throughout the process, answered back immediately to our messages/emails/calls. Even stayed after hours because we pulled up late the first day. We walked in one day just looking and drove out the next day with a new vehicle for the wife. Would totally recommend this place for anyone looking for a vehicle.
