I wanted to start this list so that we can refer each other to our own connections to get the best hook up at the local dealers.

1) Alexandria Toyota
JIM BROTHERTON
INTERNET SALES
703-797-5378
[email protected]alexandriatoyota.com

I got my Sienna from him and refered my sister-in-law and my office mate to him as well. He gave them his best deal and they got their cars :) Sister-in-law picked up 2004 Solara for invoice and office mate picked up a Sienna at a really good price, close to invoice. Jim operates by giving you his best price. No need to haggle. It saves time and headaches. SOmetimes he even throws in freight if he's allowed too. Since he's been their so long, he also has some standing so he can make his deals. He sells more cars than most other sales people at the dealer simply because he's done w/ a deal within 2 hours while some folks are still haggling over a few hundred dollars for 4 hours.

2) Lexus of Rockville
Seth Hamm
(866) 854-8448
Our family purchases our Lexus's from him. We almost went w/ a RX but decided to go w/ the bigger space of the Sienna. He's a great friendly guy and very patient and knows his cars. You need to haggle at Lexus, but it isn't too bad if you've done your research beforehand.

Criswell Honda in Germantown MD
Sue Folsom
Internet Sales

I bought my black 6 speed accord 2 days ago at Criswell Honda in Germantown, very good price, no 4 square sheet or hassling. I think you circumvent a lot of hassle at dealerships when you go through the internet sales.
Extras were offered (paint protection, tire protection etc.), but not pushed when I declined.

I bought my 2001 EX I4 Accord at College Park Honda, they are a high pressure dealer and I would not go back there. I went in with my previous car dying and not very informed and paid too much, at least I never regretted getting a Honda.


Other area Honda dealers that seemed decent and not pushy when I was shopping around. (Note that I never went into the 'salesbooth' in these, might be considered salesperson experiences then);

Sport Honda in Silver Spring MD
Odonnell Honda in Ellicott City MD


Also recommend;

Rich Morton Lincoln Mercury Mazda
Glen Burnie MD
866-288-6820

Both my father and my sisters roommate bought Mazdas there.
They were very up front with a good price and no hassle.


Just remember that if you are uncomfortable wherever you are at, just walk away, there are plenty more dealers around.


BTW 2 days later I love my 6 speed, fast, smoooth, seems almost posh on the inside. At 100 miles I had only used a quarter tank of gas. I drive around grinning!

Well Arlington Brown's was good for me, just had to negotiate like 6,000 under the posted price and then 2,500 under what htey WOULDNT go under, lol, they were like 'we wont go under 14K tho thats our best deal' and then we made a deal for like 11,500, when the price on the car was 17,500..... so yeah they jack the prices up pretty much like most dealerships I went to have, so i dunno you just gotta negotiate a LOT and if they don't sell to your price then leave, this one guy came our of the store yelling at us to come back, and offered us 2 grand under what they had said was their low point, and 1 grand under what we had asked. But I didn't like the car because it was an automatic so I said that I didn't want it anyway, haha.

Shockley honda in Frederick, Md. is great. Two month after i bought my v6 coupe the brakes started to grind so they replace all four brakes and the front two tires free of charge. Plus they drove me to work that morning and aranged pick up in the afternoon. The only thing i payed for was for the oil change i needed anyways. The buying experiance was great as well.

I researched online at the Criswell website and went in. Sue took over from the salesman and was no bullshit, quick to the price. She said, "it was her best internet price!"

I am very satisfied!

I have been fine at Carmax, sold 2 cars to them. They will give you blue book if your car is worth blue book. It is a good way to separate your trade in from your new purchase too, less chance of a new car dealer getting one over on you lowballing your trade-in. Buying there, you will not get as good of a price as private seller, most of their cars are very low miles and so have not depreciated much. I don't get the impression of them trying to rip people off, just trying to make buck.

They will only offer you $100 for than dealer for your trade in and with their set prices being higher than comparable cars with same miles and condition i'd say they are trying to make more than a buck. For example last yr before i bought my accord, i was looking at 02-03 acura TLs. Most TLs were in the low $20ks but only the type S's would be over $23k. They had a couple of base TLs at $26,500 and $27,500 with 38k and 42k miles on them. That is with no negiociations and before taxes and that was a freakin rip off. But it is a good place to take a car if you desparate.
