Purchased a vehicle from Valley Auto Wholesale 11 years ago and have been satisfied with vehicle. Looking for a car with better gas mileage & roomy interior. Saw the Kia Soul on the lot with low miles & great price. Stopped by to check it out. Test drove it and went home with a "New to Us" vehicle! :-) (Salesperson was Kathy Llorca)

Sandra, Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a nice review. It makes us happy to hear you were satisfied with the vehicle you purchased from us 11 years ago and that you came back to purchase from us again! Thank you so much for your business and trust!

We are very happy with our Nissan NV 200. John Rosel (salesman) is very professional, honest and has a good sense of humor. I liked the fact that when you walk on the lot they don't bug you at first. Yes I would buy from Valley Auto wholesale again !!
Thanks again, Gary & Barbara Emme
Kevin Noll from Palo Cedro
2006 Ram Power Wagon
I walked into the lot to look specifically at the Power Wagon they had in stock. After drooling a little bit on the paint, John came up and offered me a test drive. That's all it really took for me to decide I wanted this truck. John was a good guy, and worked with me. He offered me an extended warranty that is unbeatable. Which was a good thing. The day after I bought it my rear locking differential locking motor went out. The dealership, John, was my first contact on the problem. They sent me to a shop nearby that took care of everything. I was really happy with the fact that John got it all handled for me and everything got fixed without incident. They covered the repair bill. The warranty itself ended up being used to get it fixed, which is fine. That's why I bought a warranty. I say thank you John for being there to help with the problem. Other than that one thing everything has been perfect. I love the truck and next time I need a vehicle I will most likely be back.
Bud wyatt from Redding

Thanks Larry for all your help. No pressure to buy and Larry is very friendly. They get good quality vehicles, been checking out their inventory for some time. I have missed a few good deals but finally the right one came alone. Larry, the truck runs great and the wife loves it. You got a good deal on my trade in and will be a great truck for some one. This was an easy experience in buying a vehicle. I would definitely do business with Larry again.

Kimberly Parker from Redding
2013 Ford Focus
The only situation I would see needing to be improved was that the car I purchased wasn't detailed at all!!!

Kimberly,
Thank you for the feedback. I appologize that the Focus wasn't properly detailed prior to your purchase. It must have mistakenly ended up out on the lot prematurely. It has happened before but it is a rare occurance. I will spread the word that we need to be more diligent in that area. Thank you again for bringing this to our attention.

Kenny Gonzalez from Redding
2007 Dodge Ram 3500 4x4 Truck
Good thing I got a warranty. The transmission needed to be rebuilt. I will be buying my next truck from you.

Kenny, Thank you so much for taking the time to provide feedback. I am so sorry to hear about the transmission! We have each vehicle safety inspected and smogged before offering it for sale. We use only highly experienced & respected 3rd party repair facilities but still vehicles can appear fine one day and then have a major part failure the next. That's why we offer the best aftermarket Service Contract we can find at a reasonable price. We, too, are very glad that you had that warranty and we are very happy that you still trust us enough to buy your next vehicle from us!! Thank you again.

Sales Team was awesome. John (Rosel) made my wife and I feel comfortable. Products on the lot are well prepared. Would really like to know more about the vehicle bought though! Overall very satisfied. Thank you!!

Jess, Thanks so much for buying your truck from Valley Auto Wholesale. We try to find out as much as we can about each vehicle we offer for sale but unless it is a local trade in we only have the vehicle history report to go off of and it doesn't tell us a lot. Of course, on local trade ins we are not permitted to give out any previous owner information so even then there isn't really much info to share.

2010 Honda Fit
Inner guidance brought me to your car lot (and yours alone - passed by many others, but did not "feel" desire to stop). John (Rosel) was the perfect salesperson - helpful and not pushy. I had let go of the idea that a truck or mini-van should be our next vehicle, but told John that was what I was looking for. (The FIT is like a mini mini-van!) He was showing me a car, when he mentioned the FIT had low miles. I turned around and it seemed perfect! Inner guidance again! My husband met me later at the lot to check it out, and John made it do-able. He was able to get financing that worked. The car is perfect for our needs. Thank you, John!

Sue & Jim, Thank you so much for buying your Honda FIT from us! Your Sales Specialist, John Rosel, and all of us here at Valley Auto Wholesale just love it when everything falls into place so perfectly!

I rate quality of vehicle, questions answered clearly, made to feel comfortable, treated with courtesy & respect, and overall experience a 10. Documents explained well? I rate at 1 - Found out that the service contract didn't cover leaky gasket on transmission. (My salesperson was Duane Gazzigli)

Michael, Thank you so much for your business & your feedback - both good & not so good. That's how we know what we are doing right and where we fall short. I'm so sorry that the FREE POWERTRAIN ONLY WARRANTY that we included with your purchase was not explained better at the time of vehicle delivery. We do offer other more comprehensive Service Contracts through PRco for purchase but the free 3 month, 3,000 miles powertrain only plan does have very limited coverage.

Could of negotiated on price better. Really didn't want to budge, but everything else was great!

Thank you so much for the business Tiffany and the feedback! We try to price our vehicles more realistically to start with so there is not as much "wiggle room" as most dealers have. Also some vehicles are just really hard to find right now (quality Hondas are one of them) which means we have to pay more to get them. We do negotiate when we can :-)

Thank you ever so much! I purchased my car and a couple days later I get a phone call. I thought something might be wrong, but Larry (Birdsong) called because he got my loan even cheaper for me and I think that goes to show how much you guys really do for people who are hard to finance. Thanks to Larry and your financing options I got an even BETTER deal on my car. Definitely will recommend you to family and friends!

I was referred to Valley Auto Wholesale by Angelo (Angelo Arista, owner of Classic Imports Repair Shop). Our salesman was awesome - He explained things very well and he seemed very authentic. Car shopping is usually not enjoyable.

Thank you so much Debbie for taking the time to provide feedback. It is so important to us. Thanks again for your business.

Mike (Eastman) & Steve (Glarson) were great! This is the second time we have bought from Mike. Although Larry (Birdsong) was rude to my wife when he found out we were working with Mike. Mike was gone for 20 minutes when we got there and Larry basically told us to leave and do something else while Mike was away because he would not earn commission on us and someone had to be there for us to stay. Lucky that you have Mike or we would have left then. Larry could use a nice people skills class or two. He is probably a nice guy.

David & Diana,
Let me start off by thanking you SO MUCH for your continued business and faith in us. Mike Eastman is definitely a valuable asset to VAW and a great person. We feel lucky to have him here as part of our team. I also want to thank you for taking the time to provide such valuable feedback. As an owner, I try to make ensure that every interaction reflects our core values and philosophy which is that "We Make Buying a Vehicle a Positive Experience!" When we fall short of that, for whatever reason, I need to know. Larry is usually much better with customers than this particular incident would indicate. I am so sorry that he behaved the way he did with you and I have spoken to him about this incident. Thank you for not leaving, for waiting for Mike to return, and for trusting us with your business, once again.

Buying a vehicle from VAW was a pleasant experience. It's a salesman's job to make the sale happen but to find an honest & cooperative salesman is your luck. I must say we're lucky to be helped by Duane Gazzigli, a gentleman who stepped into our shoes from customer's point of view, making sure we were absolutely satisfied with our purchase. He answered multiple phone calls in 5 hours & went out of his way calling people to get information that we wanted to know on our selected car. There's only 2 good reasons (do I need to mention) that made us drive 250 miles/3.5 hours (each way) with our 15-month old & that too on a Friday after office hours! I guess that says it all. Also, he gave us a good deal even before we started to drive as he didn't want our trip & time to go to waste.

Every stage of our purchase was comfortable & relaxing & it was definately one of our most pleasant & smooth shopping experiences. He even followed up with us the next day to find out if we reached home safely with the little one. It's his attitude & pleasant personality which helped us in simplifying our decision. We are glad that we went with our instincts.

Duane, we are already getting praises from our friends for getting such a beauty. So please keep getting good vehicles which would magnetize our friends to drive all the way to Redding from Bay Area. Thanks, Depak, Namita & Syou
