I don't normally do reviews, but this car shopping experience was so best so far! Our salesman "Woody" (Lynwood) was so understanding and patient with us. It is so hard to find the perfect used car, never mind that it's a used car for our 17yr old daughter, who is a Senior in High School. Woody was the first salesperson and car dealer we checked out. We test drove 3 different makes & model cars and we really had no clue as to what my daughter would want & feel comfortable in. We spent a few hours with Woody the first day car looking, and my daughter got a feel for what is out there and for how much $. We didn't buy that first day and over the few weeks ahead, we visited 3 more car dealers. We test drove at 2 of the 3 dealers & didn't buy, because we just weren't in love with what was out there. The other dealers were willing to sell anything just for the sale. My daughter had a better idea a week or two later of what she would like and we spoke to Woody on the phone. The difference between Woody and other salespersons is Woody cares about you and really wants to find the perfect car for you. He also has access to all the Coggin dealerships. After Woody called and told us there were some cars on the lot like we were looking for and we should come look at them, so we did. When we saw one of the cars, all 3 of us thought that's it, the perfect car for my daughter. We took it for a test drive and put money down. It went in the Honda shop for the inspections and received a new battery and front brakes. He also went above and beyond for us when we noticed an oil leak and he got that repaired for us as well. We weren't the easiest people to deal with, especially my husband, who will tell you exactly what he thinks (no filter). Woody put up with us exceptionally well. He really cares about the people he deals with. He is down to earth, understanding and wants you to be happy with your purchase. This is a rare quality in the car sales business. Whether your in the market for a used car or new car, go and check out "Woody" at Coggin Honda. Ask for him by name and when you work with him, you will be amazed at how friendly, personable, caring and helpful he is. I hope Coggin appreciates and realizes what a jewel of a person Woody is for their team. Woody you are the best! Diane K Orange City Resident
I bought my previous vehicle from CarMax and had a great experience. So I searched online thru a bunch of dealers' used inventories and found a few vehicles I was interested in at Coggin DeLand Ford. Although I had my own financing, I wasn't sure if I could make the numbers work to fit within the parameters I had to work with. Scott was my Salesperson, Adrian was the Sales Manager, and Austin was the Finance guy. Between the 3 of them, I was blown away with their professionalism, honesty, and willingness to go above and beyond in helping to make sure my family ended up with the vehicle we wanted in the price we were looking for. They worked to make sure they purchase price was where we needed it to be and even found financing the next day that was 4% lower than what I was able to get! In the end, I was able to get more car for the same amount of money I was able to spend. While I did experience a few minor issues, I'd give the following advice to anyone dealing with any car dealer: • Don't go close to closing time - there's no one to clean the car or fill it up with gas (there was some sand from where we switched during the test drive and I drove it off the lot with 1/4 tank of gas) • If it's a Ford with the keypad entry, get the code BEFORE you leave (the car didn't have the factory code in the owner's manual so now I may have to pay if I take it to another Ford dealer to read it off the computer since I don't live near this dealer) Overall, the service was awesome, they made me feel like they cared about me as a human being (not just trying to sell me a car and get me out the door), and they over-delivered even when they didn't have to. Thank you! :-)
Great place to buy a car, awesome sales staff, the finance guy was extremely helpful and the managers will work with you to get you the deal that you want, I highly recommend this company, the SUV's and the cars that they sell. Their service staff are very courteous, understanding and mindful of your time, the waiting area is comfy but don't get to comfortable as you wont be there very long.
