Bale Honda recently came under new management and is now Landers Mclarty Honda. I have bought 2 vehicles from Bale Honda in the past 6 years and was not happy with the new name. I do not have any respect for senior Landers and expressed this to my contacts at Bale Honda. While some people left with the Bale name, most people stayed and are very happy with the new transition. Junior Landers has spoken in depth to his new people about the differences he brings to the deal and they seem to be happy with it. So, I decided to continue to do business with them by having my Honda serviced and as always they did a great job. I recently decided to trade that in on a 2015 Honda Accord Sport on Friday the 3rd of April and I got the same amazing deal and service that I have always received from Bale Honda. So Landers Mclarty Honda has earned my business in the same great way Bale did and this is my 3rd vehicle from this great bunch of people!! Thanks Doug, Zach, and Reese!!
Buying a new vehicle can be tough. To some car dealerships we are all just a number but to McLarty Honda we are treated as family. James Forrester welcomed us with open arms. He was personable, professional, and polite. He knew that we were looking for a bigger vehicle for our growing family. James was persistent with helping us not only get a bigger vehicle but a BRAND NEW vehicle. The dealership lowered the price of the vehicle so we could afford it. Honda actually lost money on our deal but it didn't matter to them because we were treated as family. If you would like to get a reliable car but also be treated as a hardworking individual instead of a number go to McLarty Honda. Go and see James Forrester to find your next dream car. You will come out smelling like a rose. P.S. To get the best treatment call James at 501-227-7000 to schedule an appointment or ask any questions. Feel free to mention this review.
What a great car-buying experience. I found a beautiful used car for my wife, told them what I was willing to pay, which really wasn't much less than the sticker price. I also asked for a few minor imperfections to be fixed. They didn't try to haggle, "let me get the boss to see if it's ok...". The salesman was empowered to make the deal.This is the kind of auto experience I like and appreciate. The building is beautiful, with a little cafe. Very nice waiting area, and a very nice ambiance. The service was great, the people were great, and most of all the car is great, at a very fair price. I'll come to Owens Murphy again, and I would tell others to check them out. They have some very nice cars (Land Rover; Jaguar; Volkswagen Dealers). I really liked their pre-owned inventory. Very good selection.
First, it's a Honda! I was 2 years into a 3 year lease from McClarty. They made an intriguing "lease pull-ahead" offer by mail that turned out to work perfectly for what I had in mind a year from now. Instead of waiting, drove off buying (not leasing) a brand new current model of what I'd been leasing. Was impressed with the time they took and suggestions they made to tailor the financing package (and extended warranty) to my needs, budget and driving history. Easily the most pleasurable deal I've made in over 40 years of cars. Must have met 6 or 7 staff personnel during the course of the deal: uniformly friendly, down-to-earth, no pressure, knowledgeable. Amazing, really. Couldn't be more impressed with McClarty.
This was by far the quickest, easiest, and best deal on a car I've ever gotten! I knew I wanted another Civic because I love my little car so much, and my daughter is going to be taking it over for college. I've been stressing about getting a good deal, getting financed, and just dealing with the whole car shopping experience as a whole. I shouldn't have been! I called James Forrester, told him what I wanted, and that was how easy it was. Got a great deal and a great interest rate. Drove happily off the lot in less than an hour in a half! I couldn't recommend James Forrester and Landers McClarty more highly.
Went in at 2:30 pm............... on my way home at 5:30 pm. Told Roderick McCray what I wanted, how much I could afford and Stuart Westmoreland walked me through paperwork. This is my 3 Honda and I refuse to buy anything else for the time being. I'm going to miss the Bale Honda name but I am sure Landers McLarty will be just as professional as Bale as evident by the customer service I received. No pressure or strings attached, I could have kept my 2013 Honda. The 2015 with all the "bells and whistles" makes it a little more exciting to drive. I'm truly enjoying my new Honda!
We purchased our first Honda Pilot from Bale Honda(very good experience!), back in 2004, so I was kind of leery going back to them since they changed ownership. So I called and talked with a salesman named Tony McDaniel. Told him i needed 2015 Honda Pilot Touring 4wd in Dark Amber Met and that is the only color option wanted. He said we dont have one but I can locate one for you. He went beyond expectation and found one a couple states away. We made the deal, and are very happy with the price and our purchase! Would definitely recommend! Thanks
Purchased a 2015 Honda Odyssey on Saturday. Salesman, James Forester, was very helpful throughout the process and not high pressure. Sales manager, Drew Warburton, was very receptive to negotiating the financial details that fit our wishes. We had a Pilot to turn in on a LBP (baloon) maturity and Landers McLarty took care of everything involving that vehicle. The finance procedure of the deal was promptly addressed and took very little time. Very happy with vehicle and the transaction acquiring it.
I loved my experience at Northpoint Mazda. Russell Norris was helpful, not pushy at all. He was knowledgeable and friendly. I've never had less than excellent service at Northpoint, and am glad to have another Mazda in my garage! I showed up Saturday morning with no intention of buying a car, but 3 hours later had test driven, ordered, and financed the car of my dreams. They lent me a nice car to drive while mine was shipped from another dealer. A great experience all around.
I just recently purchased my 4th Honda Accord from Landers McLarty (formerly Bale Honda). My purchase experience was wonderful, as usual. I have been doing business with this facility since 1996. There were no high pressure sales tactics and the sales person who assisted me (Shawn Vaden) was very knowledgeable and patient. The accessories guy, parts department, and the service team were also very nice and helpful. I could not have asked for a better buying experience!
