Trusted dealers in SoCal?

Hey guys, I wanted to know where you guys bought your trucks from?
I'm trying to buy a new 2014 Taco and I dont want one of those everyday scumbag salesmen haha. I'm located out in Mission Viejo, but I'd drive up to 2hrs away if the deal/sales quality is *that* much better.
Any opinions are welcome

Thanks

Hands down Cabe Toyota in Long Beach. Only dealership I let touch my Tacoma I didn't buy from them but their sales dept has been great when I went to look at a 2013' 4runner when I was waiting for my Tacoma to be serviced. BTW great service dept too with their excellent customer services. This is the dealership I plan to go when I bring my TRD supercharger to be installed. It's a small dealership but the customer service out weighs everything IMO.

Last I haven't heard or read about anything great about Hooman Toyota either and they are the other Toyota dealer in Long Beach.

I've purchased two Toyotas at Toyota San Diego and couldn't have asked for a better experience either time. Unfortunately I don't live in SD anymore so I can't use them.

Carson Toyota, I have a number to a sales guy. He will quote you via text and he wont bother you unless you ask questions. He just qouted my buddy a really good price on a mini van. Very easy to deal with I'll text u his number. Just say someone who bought from him gave you his number. They have the largest inventory in SoCal. Btw I don't know him personally. I was given his number by a Car Max guy and was very happy with him.

And South Coast.

Manager flat out told my buddy that he was the largest dealer in the country and he didn't need his business.

Bullshit on both counts... Longo is largest. I doubt South Coast is in the top 10.

They are actually in the process of building a larger building so right now they are in trailers. Very trustworthy and very honest. If they dont have it they'll tell you and will do anything to make you happy.

If I were toyota I would be ashamed to have Hooman under my name. They are by far one of the worst dealers out there. I went to them and they told me they had the truck and could pick it up from a dealer 20 minutes away. It was my mistake and I put down my deposit. Well after 4 days I was done hearing their BS. Went to try and get my deposit back and take my business else where. The manager was super rude and almost didnt give me my deposit back.

I went in on a friday and the manager said I would have my money in 2 business days.....great Ill be here Sunday to pick up my money. He said sunday wasnt a business day although they are open for business.

I am not the only one that has had a bad experience their either. Don't go to hooman and dont have your dealer that you choose deal with them either.

Stay away from the Toyota dealership in the Cerritos Auto mall as well, the DMV has done multiple investigations against them. Shows me something is wrong.

Similar thing happened to Carson 15 or 20 years ago. Dealership was pulled and they became corporate owned.

Let's just say m brother worked for Elmore and a good friend worked for GG. They will take advantage of 88 year old widows for every penny she has....

Their 'family' price was $1500 more then what Carson quoted me over text.

Consistently good experiences with Crown in Ontario so far. But Glendora is more mod-oriented.

I got my '03 Tundra from Crown.
Overall I was very happy, except for two issues:

1 - Took all fucking day. Salesguy insisted on running through all of the finance BS even though I was paying through my credit union.

2 - Extended warranty was worthless. It was not a Toyota warranty, it was a 3rd party that required all routine maintenance be performed at some tire shop in Santa Fe Springs (which is legal for an extended warranty under Magnuson-Moss).

When I bought my wife's Rav4 from Carson a year later, I made sure that she was getting a Toyota extended warranty.

She didn't need it... she has about 150k on that Rav now and the two problems she had cropped up in the first 6 months.

Got mine from Tustin Toyota.
Shopped all over, Longo Toyota was offering terrible financing, Tustin helped me out a ton!
Very knowledgeable tech department, super friendly sales guys, they somehow link your phone to your account there so when you call they greet by name & don't go through the whole look-up process. I love em!
