6/13/18, Purchased a used Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport. I was immediately greeted by Gary Hirschfield. I saw the truck I was interested in. We took a test drive; entire time he was explaining how everything operated in truck. It has everything. Gary was patient, answered all questions and was completely a pleasure to deal with. Gary is extremely knowledgeable. Keep it up Gary! Love the truck!

Morgan Conley

Jonathan helped me out and was amazing! We did basically everything over the phone so when I came in it was all ready to go. Only spent about 30 minutes in the dealership and was able to leave with my brand new 2018 corolla! I’m obsessed with it. Thank you TV Toyota & Jonathan for a great experience :)!

Marti Sharifan

I took my Toyota Rav4 in for an oil change. I was able to drop my car off on my way to work & take the Toyota shuttle to work. My car was finished quickly. After work, I just walked to Toyota (I work close, but I could have called for the shuttle) and waited just a few minutes for my car to be pulled around. The Temecula Toyota dealership uses floor covers & seat covers to protect the interior, so my car always leaves in the condition I left it! Great service! My service manager this time was Tawnee & she was great! Everything is explained to me. I recommend them highly!

Marta Vindiola

I just leased my new Camry & it’s beautiful & I love it!!
Tim was great & so helpful.. He didn’t have the exact car that I wanted but he talked to his manager Jim
who then assured me he would get it and they came through.. Both of these guys are genuine & they weren’t pushy which I greatly appreciated.
The whole process went smoothly & everyone there is awesome. I’m so happy I bought my car from them. You guys are awesome! Thanks so much!

My advisor with Temecula Valley Toyota is usually Vanessa Vazquez! She is absolutely amazing... she’s sweet, friendly, helpful, caring, easy to talk to and knowledgeable! She always has a positive attitude and full of energy! I am at the dealer monthly because my commute puts miles on my vehicle and I look forward to working with Vanessa! She is definitely an asset to Temecula Valley Toyota! I always have a positive experience at Temecula Valley Toyota! Thank you for the superior customer service!

ronnie bundalian

I always have a good experience with Toyota service. they are very busy so need to make sure you have an appointment or come early. You always get taken care of in timely manner. They tell you what's needed to be done in your car, but not pushy. My rep yesterday was great. He even hooked me up with a free car wash at the Shell next door!! Great job Stewart Tan!!

I would like to express my personal appreciation to Patrick Smith for his very excellent customer service. I appreciate his courtesy, knowledge and professionalism. He was respectful of my time constraints and his team went the extra mile to provide updates, progress and information - including images. Patrick patiently explained options to me and offered guidance toward facilitating the necessary repairs in the most cost effective manner. Thank you, Patrick for your kindness and great service! I'll be back! -Sharon C

Ashley B.

We've been in the market for a van for awhile with our growing family. We made our rounds to many of the dealerships in Temecula to check out and test drive, we also spend a lot of time researching which made us narrow it down the options to the Sienna and the Honda Odyssey. It was clear we were leaning toward the Sienna. 

We had a lot of different interactions with different dealerships and sales associates, however right off the bat I had a great feeling from Toyota Temecula when we were approached by Joseph Ariosta in a very gentle and hands off manner. He let us know he was there to answer any questions we had and stepped away allowing us the privacy to really check out the van. We left and came back later and searched for Joseph to take us for a test drive. Not only was he very personable, he took us up to their storage lot to look at all the other color options to find exactly what I was looking for. Being a family of 5 and running our own business we didn't have time to spend in the dealership with negotiations and such. We left and told him we'd think about it. He took our info to followup and assured he wouldn't pressure. He followed up right away via email and again a few days later. 

We were able to communicate via email (phone for me is a nightmare with 3 kids around) and I'd be able to sit and process the email before responding. I had received a prior quote for a lease on the Odyssey that matched our budget and sent it to Joseph and he said he'd match it. I was able to come in the following day where we communicated via text. I was able to fill out a credit application online and he had the car detailed prior to my arrival. 

By the time I got to the dealership it was a painless and positive experience. We already had everything set, we just needed to sign the papers and get the keys. We even brought all the kids. Their lobby it beautiful! It even has a great spot dedicated for kids with a TV and an iPad. When we sat down the first thing Joseph did was grab a coloring book and some crayons for my toddler to sit with me. The older ones sat in the kids area. He took us out to go over all the details in the van, including setting up my bluetooth. We signed the lease papers and got the keys and were done. It was really simple. Joseph even offered to assist in transferring the carseats, which we declined since we wanted to wash them that night before putting them in the nice new van. 

So far we are in love with our Sienna, and I'm sure it only helps that our experience with this dealership was such a positive one. We will be referring our friends and family to Joseph specifically for any vehicle leases/purchases!!

Nancy and Paul P.

Just got a Tundra at Temecula Valley Toyota. We worked with Margaret (sales) and she was wonderful. We also worked with Taylor in finance and I'll be recommending the two of them to our friends. Had a great experience.

Art H.

Just purchased two brand new Prius from Temecula Valley Toyota. I called 7 dealerships and told them all I was in the market for not one but two new vehicles. I told all the dealerships that whoever gave me the best price was the one I would come speak with. Temecula beat all other dealers prices, some by thousands. I guess the others really didn't want to sell the cars. I spoke with Sean Ralstin at the dealership. Sean was very knowledgeable and had an answer to all my questions. No pressure, no sales tactics. I went in to purchase the vehicles and was in and out in about 3 hours. Sean and his co-workers even delivered both vehicles to my house since I had driven my car to the dealership. My overall experience was outstanding and I would highly recommend Temecula Toyota.

Patricia T.

I pulled off a great Father's Day surprise present, for my Husband, yesterday. Thank you to Derrick, Forrest, Ryan, Jeff and John S. 

This Truck would make the 28th vehicle we've purchased in our lifetime. It would be our 12th, from them. 

If you come prepared, you will not have a bad experience. If you leave the main ingredients of a car buying transaction, at home--be prepared to wait. 

I highly recommend this dealership. In fact, if you shop locally, you keep your tax dollar in our community. Best experience ever. Thank you again!

- Patricia T.

Ruby D.

We had a great experience! Didn't expect to buy a car when we walked in, but we did. They got us! Haha really friendly salesmen and overall nice guys. Highly recommend if you're looking for a Toyota!

- Ruby D.

Taylor S.

Temecula Valley Toyota is the place to go. The great folks over there hooked me up with a brand new 2015 Corolla and beat everyone else that quoted me by a mile. Ask for Sean the salesman, he is very nice and with help guide you through the vast lot of new cars. The owner Tom is a great guy and really cares about getting the best deal for you. Don't waste your time at other dealerships, this is the best one for miles. Highly recommended!

- Taylor S.

Brad M.

If you're looking for an honest salesmen who is more concerned with helping you find the right car then "making a sale," look no further. My wife and I are expanding our family and needed to find a larger, more suitable vehicle. When we arrived at Toyota we were approached by Jeff. Unlike other car salesmen, Jeff was not pushy and allowed us to find the car that best fit our needs. Jeff gave us the facts about the 4Runner and allowed us time to think it over. A week later we returned to Toyota, found Jeff, and proceeded to make a deal. Jeff walked us through the purchase process and guided us into a great deal. If you're looking for a new Toyota you can't go wrong with Jeff Haslitt at Temecula Toyota.

Shalyn R.

Great customer service! I came in for an oil-change/maintenance, and as soon as I parked, three people came to me one after another asking what I need done and making sure I was next in line. The wait, however, was not so bad because the waiting room had lots of comfortable seats. Magazines were at your reach . . . Overall the service was great!

- Shalyn R.

Karen and Kevin S.

My husband purchased a 2015 Camry here on Sunday and I have to say everything from beginning to end was exceptional. Our salesman was Michael P., he was easy going and no pressure, exactly what we were looking for. I don't appreciate high pressure sales and if he had been that way we would have walked out. Jim P. the sales manager made us a quick deal which is also appreciated, none of this going back and forth for hours negotiating. We even stopped after agreeing to a price and went for a quick dinner while they ran our credit report, got our paperwork together, etc. A GREAT GROUP OF GUYS ! I highly recommend this dealership and Toyota's.

- Karen & Kevin S.

Denise H.

I love this dealership for their great customer service & of course reliable cars. If you get an opportunity to stop by for a test drive ask for Eloise Bonde. She is well informed, patient & professional. She never makes you feel rushed or pressured, she's just an absolute pleasure to speak with.

- Denise H.

Desirae M.

Yesterday I bought my first new car at a dealership and the service I was given was amazing. From the sale, to the sales manager Jim Pavone and the Finance by Jun, everyone was so helpful. Leonard Holloway went above and beyond to make sure I got what I wanted at the price that I could afford. From the moment we walked into the dealership and he approached us he was not pushy at all but met all my needs. Being pregnant I was looking for a newer more reliable car and he took all that into consideration. I've never been more pleased with a sale or a salesperson before! Leonard knows what he's doing and how to make customers feel like more than just customers. I couldn't be more happy with my experience and we will definitely be coming back to this location!

- Desirae M.

Marisol R.

My mom and I went to Temecula Valley Toyota today to purchase a new car for my mom and the experience was the best ever! I've purchased 7 of my own cars and I will never go to another dealership again. Our sales associate Rigo Rosas provided VIP customer service and that alone will have me coming back. Thank you again Rigo! Oh and she got the 2015 Sienna SE in white and it's BEAUTIFUL!!

- Marisol R.

Lindsay B.

We purchased a new car on 5/25/15 which was a very busy day for all of the Temecula Valley Car Dealers we visited. We started here and ended here due to the welcoming and non-pressure character projected by our salesman Nick Mouchantaf. He was very knowledgeable and patient with us. We probably took up most of his day but he never let us feel any less than his best customer. I was very impressed at how he didn't put down other car manufacturers, knowing we had shopped quite heavily that day. But he just kept focusing on Toyota's quality and reputation. 

My wife is not very fond of car shopping, which is the reason she only does it about once in 12 years. But when we left you would think Nick and her knew each other for years, as she felt completely relaxed with him and thanked him for his great customer service. I would also like to add that the finance manager I worked with, Ryan, was also a pleasant experience.

Exceptional experience overall!

- Lindsay B.

Seth A.

My family has just purchased our fourth Toyota in 14 years, and this time from our local dealership in Temecula. Joe Ariosta was very professional, honest, and a good communicator who provided immediate answers to all my email and phone questions. Our car buying experience, the first at Temecula Valley Toyota was very easy and fast. Jun in Finance was very professional and helpful as well. Thank you TV Toyota. We are happy with our new Corolla and remain loyal to the Toyota brand.

Daley F.

My first experience under the old ownership was terrible, but since ownership has changed I recently returned to purchase a new truck. Sales went out of their way to find me the one I wanted. Finance worked the deal to perfection and they have made sure I have been satisfied every since. Owner came in office and personally thanked me for buying from his dealership. Would definitely recommend them to anyone.

- Daley F.

Bill and Karen B.

Today we purchased a vehicle from Temecula Valley Toyota. The experience was the same from the first phone conversation through the signing of the final paperwork. Throughout the whole experience we were treated with Respect and Dignity.

Chris B met us and spent time showing us many vehicles. His patience was noteworthy. We finally settled on the one we wanted and was offered a solid deal that was within out budget. Shawn the sales manager…

Philip H.

We recently purchased a 2015 Scion TC from the Temecula Valley Dealership earlier this month. From the time I entered the lot to now I have had nothing but the absolute best service and fulfillment to my needs. With that being said I would like to point out one Car Sales Consultant, Micheal Pulice. He has shown above exceptional customer service by helping us with all of our needs before, during, and after the sale. He has an extensive knowledge and used it to help you make the best possible solution. He is very kind and personable in he doesn't make you feel like just another sale. I highly recommend anyone interested in buying a car that you should definitely go to the Temecula Valley Dealership, and ask for Micheal Pulice you will not be disappointed.

Bee Mini

I have always driven different car brands and was a little bit skeptical in getting a Toyota this time after my favorite car broke down. But a few "GOOD MEN" at this dealership definitely changed my views. A warm welcome from the owner himself (who I personally met) as I walked in to the cubicle made me feel so comfortable. Not to mention, I have never met a very NICE car dealership Manager before as great as Mr. Jim Pavone. Because of his eagerness to assist me, I ended up driving home 2 cars - not just 1. My advise for all future car buyers in the market, make sure you look for Mr. Mike Lechuga - he will make every effort to get you the car you wanted. After Mr. Jorge finished up the signing, I will add FIVE more stars for having the best car buying experience ever because of all of them.

Helene B.

Great service and friendly staff!! My service professional, Shawn Hodges, took great care of me and all of my needs. Couldn't ask for better service.

- Helene B.

Jennifer B.

My consultant Forrest Plough gets this 5 Star rating! Why? It was the 1st time I was not pressured by sleaze ball tactics to lease a car. Another plus is that it only took 1 hour to get my new Camry. It has taken 3 hours before to buy a car at other stores. Thanks Again Temecula Valley Toyota and Forrest for a truly exceptional experience!!

- Jennifer B.

Dan A.

I love Toyota. Nick Mouchantaf is an awesome salesman that makes the customers needs his priority. Never pressured me and made sure I got the 2 vehicles I wanted. He even follows up from time to time to make sure everything is good. I recommend TV Toyota to everyone!!

- Dan A.

Nicholis K.

Temecula Valley Toyota goes above and beyond in all ways! Getting my car serviced with exceptional service from Ashley Jenness is always a breeze. Makes me feel comfortable knowing I'm being taken care of. This last time, while waiting, I was greeted by a welcoming salesman by the name Mike Lechuga. He was very informative and made me feel right at home, telling me all the ways he and Toyota can take care of me. My next purchase will be from him! These employees, and this location deserve the highest of praise.

- Nicholis K.

Dominique D.

5 stars is too little to rate my experience with Toyota. I drove almost 160 miles to this delarship. Margaret, Shawn, and Taylor made my first car leasing experience easy and quick but I never felt pushed to make a decision. I would 100% refer this dealership to my friend and family.

- Dominique D.

Rosemarie D.

If you are ever in Temecula looking for a good deal and a great salesperson ask for Mike Lechuga!  He goes above and beyond to make your car buying experience a memorable one!

Raul O.

I had been looking for a deal on a 2008 to 2012 GMC or Chevy Crew Cab Truck for about a week in Car Guru then I stumbled across this 2009 GMC Sierra up in Temecula I immediately called and asked if they still had it, they said yes, I was on my way. When I got there I was greeted by there staff then I met Gary Hirschfield he brought out the truck I I took it out on a test drive liked it then Gary tried everything in his power to get me into the truck and succeeded. My experience with Gary and I believe a gentleman by the name of Nick was exceptional they were very professional and courteous. Thank you very much.

- Raul O.

Debbie B.

I had a great experience buying a new highlander with Eloise as my guide. She was sweet and helpful without that normal pushiness that I usually feel when dealing with car salesmen. I was slow in making a decision and Eloise was incredibly patient and worked around my schedule. She even came in on her day off because I was coming in one more time. I felt as if my best interest was at the center of the decision. I love my new highlander and feel very appreciated by my Toyota dealership as a whole and my favorite sales lady Eloise. I will return when it is time for a new Toyota.

- Debbie B.

Luke H.

I was looking for a Toyota Tacoma for months before coming to Temecula Toyota. I was helped by Sean Ralston and he was extremely helpful. Gave me plenty of options and did not pressure me into making a decision. Highly recommended.

- Luke H.

Erik P.

Set-up and account for my boss at the parts department and the workers here had me set-up in about 5 minutes. Employees here are not pushy or looked rushed to help and get you out, as for other dealers. 

Will definitely be using them again in the future.

- Erik P.

Sarah L.

I had gone to a few different dealerships on my search for the perfect car. As soon as I called Toyota to check their inventory, I was immediately taken care of by Derek Saunders. He not only helped me find out more information about the Scion tC, but he helped me feel welcomed and completely comfortable. This was my first time purchasing a vehicle on my own and I will be sure to come back and recommend Derek to anyone interested. Brain took care of me throughout the finance process and that was not at all as stressful as expected, his sense of humor completely calmed me down. By the end of this wonderful process, I felt like I truly had genuine people who wanted to make everything perfect. Thank you so much Temecula Valley Toyota for treating me with respect and completely understanding all of my needs.

- Sarah L.

Denisse A.

Five stars is to little to describe my satisfaction with the service and the amazing employees that Toyota of Temecula Valley has. I came in here like three weeks ago and got my new Scion  FR-S. Rigo Rosas, was the sales man who helped me through the process of getting my new car. He was very attentive and very helpful and got me out with a pretty good deal. Since I had a very good experience here a Temecula Valley, I decided to come back yesterday with my family and get a second new car. I Knew that I was not going to go wrong with Rigo's assistance and that he was going to get my family and I another very good deal. We got a Hybrid Camry SE and we are in love with it. Honestly if you want to get a reliable car at a very affordable price, you must definitely  stop here at TV, they will work it out with you :). And definitely come and ask Rigo Rosa, he has an amazing costumer service and will be ready to work the best price for you.

Patte H.

I love reading Yelp reviews as I rely on the first hand knowledge of my fellow consumer and have written a few myself but never imagined writing one for a car dealership - let me clarify that - a positive review.  I had purchased two other vehicles at this dealership since 2004 while they were under different ownership  and utilized their service department only because they were conveniently located. Things have really changed at Toyota of Temecula…

Michael R.

I came here on a Friday night to look at the Tundras and after being on the lot for a few minutes Marcos welcomed me. I was not planning on buying a truck on Friday, but Marcos and Nick were able to come to a verbal agreement that night. I told them I would come back Saturday afternoon to buy the truck if they kept their word. I showed up Saturday evening and was out of the dealership with my new truck in about two hours.

Marcos was the best cars salesmen that I have every dealt with. I've talked with many salesmen and they were all  pushy to make a deal and made me feel like I was being ripped me off. Marcos on the other hand was not pushy at all even when I sat there running numbers in my head, he did not try to rush me at all. He let me do my thing and answered any question that I had. 

Temecula Valley Toyota is by far one of the best dealerships around. I will be going back to them when I am ready for my next truck. Thank You Temecula Valley Toyota.

- Michael R.

Eric B.

I just bought my New 2015 Camry XSE and I must say, it is amazing! I showed up at the dealership and was immediately greeted by Jeff Curtis (sales manager) and Shaun Laggren (assistant manager). Jeff and Shaun gave me a little tour and showed me the lot of cars that I could choose from and then Jeff asked what kind of car I was interested in and called one of the salesman to come assist me. 

Shaun Ralstin (salesman) provided an excellent level of service and just chatted with me while we test drove a couple different cars. There was no pressure, just friendly conversation and informational responses to all of my questions about the two different cars. The process was incredibly easy and seamless. I will definitely be returning in the future for more cars from Temecula Valley Toyota. Highly recommended!! 

Once I had chosen my car Jeff and Shaun were very patient and explained all of the details included in the purchase and answered all of my questions. The process was completely stress free and was a much better experience than I have ever had at other car dealerships! 

Thanks Jeff Curtis, Shaun Laggren, and Shaun Ralstin! Amazing customer service.

William P.

Over the years, we have purchased a number of vehicles from Toyota and Honda dealers. We wanted to look into another Camry so visited the Toyota dealership in Temecula, CA. We were greeted by a young man named Daniel Gomez. Daniel was extremely knowledgeable about the vehicles and pleasantly worked with us at our pace. There was no pressure sales pitch and we took two vehicles on test drives. Daniel was very patient and letus try the vehicles on different types of roads to completely satisfy our curiosities. The vehicles rode comfortably and Daniel suggested a hilly area so we could see how they handled on those roads. Once back at the dealership, we talked about the numbers. He then introduced us to a gentleman named Gus  Macias who is the manager and together we all discussed pricing. There were never any high pressure sales pitches. They gave me a beginning price and I countered with what I thought was good for us. They reworked the figures and accepted my proposal and gave us a fair price for our trade-in. All in all, this was the most relaxing and stress free visit to any auto dealership we have ever experienced. Also, they had the model and color we wanted but it had not been prepared for sale yet and was still in the shipping wrapping. Even though we had not yet committed to a deal, they had it unwrapped, cleaned and brought it out for us to drive. We loved it and of course purchased it and brought it home that day. I highly recommend Daniel, Gus and Temecula Valley Toyota for the sincere customer care they gave us.

Jorge H.

I always have a bad feeling in the pit of my stomach that I associate with being at a dealership. Past experiences and memories have made me avoid dealerships at all costs. But three days ago we went in to buy a new 2015 Corolla and the experience was so pleasant that we ended up leaving with two 2015 Corollas. We are very happy with the experience, Gary Hirshfield made the experience very pleasant and enjoyable and walked us through everything step by step and made sure we knew exactly what we were agreeing to. We highly recommend this dealership, but especially if you can deal with Gary.

- Jorge H.

J T.

Just stop by and try out this place, and you will experience a true "What a feeling....". Since I met their sales manager, Shawn in the past few month ago, my wife and I came to see new Camry 2015 model. Marcus was the first sales person we ran into, and he ended up helping us spending almost all day. Even though they knew our credits were very low due to our business closure, they did not change their attitude of offering just great service and really helped us to close a deal with the car we really liked. Since we only like such particular type of cars, no leather seats, sun-roof, sporty design, good gas mirage, good sound system, decent power, pearl white color, and etc. we made Marcus running around their parking lots multiple times from one car to another. The best part was that at any moment, he was not pushy at all, and it made us feel very comfortable. After we finally selected our new car, Shawn stepped in and closed the deal. I would skip the detail, but they really worked hard for us to drive this car home. Thank you, again. P.S we will purchase our next car at this dealer for sure.

- J T.

M McKnight

I stopped by the used car department to look at cars, first person to help me was Albert. Within minutes we were test driving a 4Runner. Albert was very down to earth and made me feel comfortable. I liked the car and was introduced to Nick, I thought here we go, this guy is the guy that's going to be the fast talker and get me all flustered. Never happened, Nick was just as easy going as Albert and we made a deal on the 4Runner. I even returned the next day with some concerns and Nick and Albert were out so Ron the general manger helped me and went way beyond what most used car managers would have done to help me remedy my concerns. I went on a test drive with another salesman Al while they looked at the 4Runner and even this guy was cool. The day before I came to Temecula Vally Toyota I went to another dealer up the road and it was so bad that I really wasn't sure about buying through a dealer. These guys changed my perception, that's for sure.

- M McKnight

Aileen K.

My daughter and I came here to look for a used car and Gary Hirschfield was the first person to greet us. He wasn't pushy and we didn't feel rushed as we were looking at the prospective car. We ended up buying it because the price was right and his customer service was exceptional. This is our 3rd car that we've bought at this dealership. Good choice for all three times!

- Aileen K.

Mark P.

Let me start with the fact that I typically avoid car dealers. I was looking for a Tacoma and focused on used so I could avoid dealerships.

I found a Tacoma on the internet with the exact set up I wanted, reached out and Alex Revard replied. I was shocked when he told me it was brand new. Their price was competitive with used, so I headed over.

No pressure. I drove it, loved it and the price was right so I bought it. I am impressed! The finance guy was kind, no pressure and efficient.

Catch this . . . I didn't plan to buy it that day so Alex actually offered to drive my other car home for me.  

They've won my business! I appreciate having a car dealer that I can trust and use . . . and they're local!

Alex Revard is great to work with.

Randall B.

Just bought my NEW 2015 Tundra from Temecula Valley Toyota. Mike Pulice and Jim Pavone made the process so easy I didn't have time to get nervous. I walked in . . . test drove the truck I saw on a commercial. Then next thing I know Jim gave me an offer I couldn't refuse. As I was waiting . . . Mike made sure I felt at home. Ya ya . . . I know you folks might say its because they want my business. But this had a different feeling. Me and Mike talked as if we were buddies. This definitely made me feel comfortable at Temecula Valley Toyota. Go and see Mike and Jim. They will treat you well and get you in a vehicle you won't regret!! Guys thanks for the great car buying experience!!!

Randall B.

Nicole L.

Purchased a used car here and it was great! I have been to those horrible car dealers before where they really just bring you down and try and mess with you, but Steve H. was great! He was a down to earth good guy who we enjoyed talking to throughout our car buying process, and worked with us on our price. He made us feel comfortable with the car we were buying and the price we were paying from beginning to end. He stayed through the process with us until walking us to our purchased car. We appreciated his help! Thanks Steve! You made our car buying experience as easy as can be!!

-Nicole L.

Linda P.

This is what a car buying experience should be. After three attempts at other Toyota Dealerships in Los Angeles my sister recommended her local dealership in Temecula.  I finally found a great car and a fantastic salesman. Gary Hirschfield was very informative, very professional and just amazing!!! I highly recommend you ask for him, Gary will make your car buying experience a pleasure. I'm so happy, they really worked to help get me the car I wanted in the color and options I wanted. Gary exceeded my expectations. Skip the other guys and come here. SO HAPPY!!!

I wanted to drop a note to say what an excellent job that Danny Gomez and his manager Gus did in helping me get a new car this past Friday from Temecula Valley Toyota. They handled every obstacle in stride and assured me along the way that they could get the deal done. I am pleased to say that Toyota has found two top notch professionals working to help customers like you and I to drive away with a car they love and a payment they can afford. Way to go guys. You are a credit to your organization and I was fortunate to find my way to your dealership.

Pj N.

I purchased Prius about 2-3 weeks ago, and I have to say, this was the best buying experience I have had in years. Specially, GIL is a great salesman. He did not try to sell any add-ons.  I wish, every salesman should have the integrity and honesty like him.  It is very rare to see a nice person with honesty at the same time in auto dealerships. 
Tip: Go online and request internet price, you won't be disappointed.
Thank you!

Nigel W.

I recently decided that it was finally time to purchase a new vehicle, due to the fact that my wife and I are expecting a new addition to the family, our space needs are going to be quite a bit bigger, and after much research we decided that a 4Runner was the way to go. Now for the decision of where to go?? I don't know about you all, but I haven't had many good experiences at a car dealership . . . matter of fact I haven't had any. Now after many, many cars purchased, and many, many sleazy salesmen, I can finally say that I have met a salesman that I would trust with my purchase. I'm usually a bit apprehensive about encounters with ANY salesman, but Daniel made my wife feel at ease, which is no easy task! With that being said, and having the wife's seal of approval, we decided to move forward. Unfortunately the color and equipment we were looking for were unavailable at the moment, but when the correct vehicle does show up, my business will most definitely be with Daniel Gomez at Temecula Valley Toyota. Much thanks to the folks there for running an honest business, my family and I appreciate it very much, and we look forward to the day we can pick up our new 4Runner!!

The customer service was great. Bo S. was extremely helpful and very nice too. He went over everything very clearly. He didn't rush on anything, he was very patient. I have gone to other dealerships before and Bo has been the nicest guy I've met. I came to the dealership not expecting this kind of customer service. I have no complaints. I walked out with a 2015 Toyota Corolla. Thank you Bo S.

Our sales rep, Al Galdamez, has been the most easy going automobile sales rep that I've ever met. Very honest, no pressure, and extremely helpful with the best potential with our vehicle purchase! I would highly recommend working with Al when considering your vehicle purchase. High five Al!

Margaret was amazing throughout our truck shopping experience. We shopped every truck in the market to ensure we were making the right choice for our needs and Margaret and Shaun were very understanding. I would recommend Margaret and TV TOYOTA to my friends and family. We love our purchase!

Daniel Gomez was absolutely the best car salesman I have ever had the pleasure dealing with. He was polite, kind, informative and not too pushy. He educated me on which car was truly the best option for me. He even lowered the price which lowered my payment. Temecula Valley Toyota is run right - Daniel's manager Gus had me in and out quick. Temecula Valley Toyota will always be my choice. I'm telling my friends and family if you need a car go see Mr. Daniel Gomez at Temecula Valley Toyota!

I just came from auto repair shop, and I went to browse for cars at Temecula Valley Toyota. I was having a good experience talking with Daniel Gomez. He was very friendly and it was a completely different experience than I had in the past. It was hassle free, they were aware that I had no intention to buy today and still they let me to drive the car I wanted. I'm now a happy owner of Scion TC.

Leandra B.

We came into Toyota "just looking" and was very pleased to have met John Wright in the preowned sales department. He was very welcoming and made us feel at home sharing several good stories and making it a stress free environment. He definitely went above and beyond to help us to find the car that was perfect for our needs and wants. I hands down rate my experience at Temecula Valley Toyota a 10/10…

I want to thank the following at your dealership for a great experience in the sales department. Absolutely pain free & I must say; compared to the last couple of dealership experiences, stellar performance. Shaun Laggren, who took time to assist me with a lease question last week during the service on my RAV4 only because I made a comment to Kevin in service. Kevin asked me to wait one minute and he brought Shaun with him. We engaged in conversation and emails -ending the process with a lease on a new Prius. Marcos Vargas, was passed the football from Shaun and given a heads up that I and my wife were coming into the dealership around noon. Marcos actually had our bio with him when we met on the lot. Our search for the Prius we wanted was completed and out the door in short order. No pressure, no haggling, trade-in dollars quoted previously to me on my word of my RAV4 condition honored, finance went smoothly with options for us to choose from, again presented without pressure tactics-which we added LoJack, Great experience with your sales team, great experiences with the service team, great experience with finance. I am a Realtor, referrals are my lifeblood; I will refer friends and family to this team.

I was in need of a car and had an idea of what I wanted when I walked into Temecula Valley Toyota. The Dealer named Mike Haus was very helpful with finding the car I wanted and did a great job. I ended up getting a 2015 Scion XB and am satisfied with the vehicle and help I received at the dealership. They helped make the process easy and efficient.

We just both a certified used 2007 Toyota Corolla and we got a fantastic car for a great price. Daniel Gomez was our salesperson and he was absolutely wonderful! He answered all of our questions and was able to help us get a great deal. I would recommend him to everyone! He was extremely helpful and patient.

- Melissa S.

Alicia and Larry S.

Temecula Valley Toyota was great!!! After going to 4 different Toyota dealerships, it was so refreshing to have an honest sales person. Sean Ralstin was helpful and made our car buying experience painless. We were out of there in less than an hour. I would highly recommend! I would especially recommend a Sean as he is a down to earth guy and will not pressure you at all.

- Alicia and Larry S.

Sarah P.

Came in and was looking for my first time car. Was beyond happy with the results and customer service. Very happy with the help I was given also. Thank you Daniel Gomez for helping me get my first car - a 2014 Corolla.

Purchased a new 2015 Toyota Tundra last week.  When you go there for a new car purchase, ask for Sean. He is one of the nicest people you will ever meet, he is low-key, non-pushy, super informative and professional.  He made the normal stressful situation of buying a new vehicle into a pleasurable experience. This is the 3rd vehicle we've purchased from Temecula Toyota and Sean, Jeff, and the rest of the staff really go the extra mile to give you the best deal on the vehicle, financing, and customer service possible. They came through with flying colors on all three. My wife is looking for a Scion next and we won't go anywhere else!

Jacquelyn N.

I just purchased my first new car! Gary and Ryan made it such an amazing experience, answering all of my questions and providing information that I didn't think to ask. I didn't feel pressured to buy, and that is one of the main reasons that I did buy. Gary was an enormous help when trying to decide on a vehicle and then again during the ominous search for financing. Also, Ryan was so patient signing the paperwork and going through all of the fine print. Again I didn't feel pressured into buying extras that I didn't need, but I was so well informed that I could decide on a warranty/maintenance package that I am very happy with. I will definitely be recommending these awesome gentlemen to anyone that I know is shopping for a vehicle!

Mark A.

Just got myself into a 2012 Camry and it was rather painless as car buying should be . . . It's really a shame that I considered other dealerships to get a good variety of makes and models when I should have stuck with this dealership being a fan of Toyota. Friendly staff looking out for my best interest or a money-hungry salesman looking for the biggest bottom line? I would never work with the latter and and still wasted my time trying it. There's my lesson learned as a first-time car buyer and sincerely hope you don't do the same thing as I did if you're looking at dealerships to visit.

Thanks Dave, John, Gus, and Shaun! You guys are awesome!!!

Carmel R.

I recently purchased a new Highlander. I had a wonderful experience. Margaret was sooo awesome!! She got me what I wanted . . . the right color and model. You know when something feels right when you are walking towards it and a smile comes across your face every time. I waited a long time for a new car. This place was a blessing. Thanks TV Toyota!!

Shawn F.

My parents needed to get a new lease on a very limited budget. I was worried that they would not be able to make a deal . . . Negotiations with the salesperson (Nick Mouchantaf) and the sales manager (Jim Pavone) were "easy going." They were not "pushy" with sales pitches, and overall were caring and understanding throughout the process.

I went with my parents to make sure they did not get scammed into buying something they could not afford. I left the dealership with a new confidence in the sales process, and . . . wait for it . . . a new TRUST in the salespeople we dealt with.

We chose Temecula Valley Toyota because my parents rave about the service center and the treatment they have received in the past.

I am so excited with their new lease, and more importantly, finding a dealership that I can trust.

My wife and I were in search of a new vehicle. The 2015 Toyota Camry was recommended to us but we were also very used to the Lexus series vehicles with its amenities. We were introduced to Sean Ralstin who showed several different vehicles. We liked the Camry but felt we still needed to do more searching. Sean was not only very patient but he didn't push us into anything we were going to regret. Towards the end we were introduced to the 2015 Toyota Avalon Sport and it was everything we hoped it would be.Temecula Valley Toyota went the extra mile to exceed our expectations. The hospitality and service was top notch. We were treated like family and when it came to the delivery of the vehicle everything was clean, full tank of gas, and the features were explained to us in detail. Thank you so much for taking care of us, we will be back in the future when it comes to another vehicle. Thank you Sean Ralstin, John Sideris, and Tom Rudnai for a truly exceptional experience!!

My mom lives in Temecula and told me that they had a deal on new Corollas, so I drove all the way from Anaheim to check it out (I had previously visited the Toyota in Orange). Although I liked the regular 2015 Corolla LE, I saw the Corolla Sport and it was love at first sight. Even though I had previously test driven the Sport I didn't see any in the beautiful red color, only Slate and Silver. Leonard helped me out. He and his team helped me get financed for it, even though my credit was/is sub par. I initially signed the contract at 12% APR, but my family put pressure on me to go back and lower it, Albert and June helped me out by lowering the APR. Which, let's be honest, will only help buy another car sooner rather than later ;) Once you sign a contract it's very unlikely that someone is going to change the APR for you, so it was really appreciated. With that said, I loveeeeee red my Corolla S.

Stopped by and found great car at a great price! Michael Hause was salesperson I worked with and cannot say enough good things! Nicest guy you could ever work with! Got me what I asked for on my trade without a bunch of back and forth, and into newer fantastic vehicle. Would recommend to everyone!

After a recent car service (at another dealer) my TPMS light went on. It was just in the middle of the holidays and could not have been more inconvenient. I was able to get my tire pressure checked at a local tire store and all 4 tires had the correct pressure, but the light was still on.The Temecula Valley Toyota concierge advised me there were no available appointments but suggested I bring it in to have it checked. Once I arrived at the Service Department, I was immediately met by a service advisor and my car was taken in to be checked. In less than 15 minutes, they had resolved the issue by putting air in my spare tire and I was on my way. Very impressed with their level of service!

I have been dreading looking for a Tacoma for past month. Finding the right one, at the right price, seemed like a daunting task...until I met Craig Toliver at Temecula Valley Toyota. I drove up last Friday with the intent to just browse. Craig walked up, introduced himself, and immediately put me at ease with his friendly, honest service. He found what I was looking for and worked to get the price I was happy with. Awesome! I couldn't have asked for a better experience buying a vehicle. Everything works out for a reason! Go see Craig!

My experience with Temecula Valley Toyota Service Department has been very positive. Took my 2014 Corolla in for its first service recently. My vehicle was ready when promised and it was washed and vacuumed as well. The service department lounge was clean, neat, and well stocked with snacks and drinks and there is a TV and Wi-Fi to entertain you while you wait. Frank did a good job explaining the service and was also there . . . 

Kenzie S.

My husband and I spent the day searching for out new car with Sam Radi, a sales consultant. Sam showed us exactly what we were looking for and never tried to push us above our price range. By the end of the day, we left with our new car and couldn't be happier with it. I would definitely recommend Sam to anyone in the area searching for a car, he was extremely patient, understanding of our criteria, and great to work with!

My husband and I just bought a 2015 4Runner from Temecula Valley Toyota and had an amazing experience. Sean Ralstin sold us on the truck and Shaun Laggren  put together the perfect deal for us to include giving us exactly what we wanted for our trade-in! We had a great experience finishing the deal in finance with Ryan Brown who was very personable. I thoroughly appreciated the fact that when they didn't have the exact vehicle I wanted, they made a trade with another dealership and I was able to pick up my truck the same day!!!! This was the second time that we had visited the dealership to shop for the 4Runner and their service was stellar both times. I would highly recommend this dealership to anyone looking for a great and reliable vehicle!!

Delacreme E.

We could not be happier with our experience at Temecula Valley Toyota. Jeffrey Curtis and Forrest Plough made the process simple and easy. They picked the perfect vehicle for our needs, streamlined the financing process and got us on our way in a beautiful new 2015 Tundra! We will definitely continue shopping with Temecula Valley Toyota.

Georgia K.

My experience was exceptional. I was elated to see so many female employees managing the service lines with such professionalism and efficiency. I was greeted with a smile and taken care of without hesitation. Although there were quite a few customers in line, all were greeted and taken care of immediately. The same holds true when I returned to pick up my vehicle; the call that my car was ready was as promised and the checkout was painless. Thank you

Justin A.

Just bought a brand new Corolla,what an amazing experience buying this car couldn't be happier. Margaret Gunn and Jim Pavone just hands down awesome staff felt right at home they worked so hard to get us where we wanted with this car financially. Great dealership and will definitely be telling people about this place!!!

- Justin A.

Angela T.

Yeah we got a new car that we love! 

Katie Lundquist- was so friendly and efficient in sealing the deal. She made sure that we got what we wanted within our price range. We have never bought a car on 2.5 hours but we did last night. Katie communicated with us with phone calls and texts. She kept us informed about that fact that people were interested in the car we wanted! I thought it was a sales tactic until another salesperson asked her about our car while i chatted with her in the office. Yes, our car was wanted by other and Katie wasn't about the just the sale to us, she wanted us to have the car we wanted. She was honest and up front through the whole process.

Nate- He helped us with the paperwork and he was so knowledgeable. I did not imagine getting financing through Toyota since I already had a blank check from my financial institution but Nate surprised me by meeting the my banks APR and up sold my the maintenance package which I never would've thought of. He also gave me his suggestions on tinting options. He was good at his job.

I have to say that this experience was by far one of the best that I encountered. We all hate car buying and how time consuming it is, but last night I experienced nothing but absolute efficiency that got me on the road with my new car in 2.5 hours. We have bought Toyotas for over 25 years and after last nights experience we will continue to buy TOYOTA from this dealer although we live in San Diego because they by far exceeded our expectations.

Earlier this afternoon we stopped by the NEW lot to test drive a 2015 Tacoma. We chose the 4 door crew cab. We were not disappointed in the quality and performance we've come to expect with Toyota products. We've been proud PRIUS owners since 2008, owning 3 different vehicles in addition to numerous cars over the years dating back to a 1980 Corolla. Mr. Gus Macias assisted us. Its nice speaking with an experienced and qualified sales person who knows the product he represents. In addition, Gus was genuinely friendly and zero sales pressure. We had already test drove like vehicle at the local GM dealer. Both vehicles are similar but for our money, we may choose the Tacoma. Now, to talk trade in of our motor home. We hope we can work this scenario out. Thanks Gus.


Gary H.

TVT did a great job. Customer service was top notch. Sean my advisor was pleasant, with a smile, and seemed to know what he was talking about. And the repairs were A+. And it sure makes a difference to get back into a clean car! Thanks.

Anthony L.

Shawn Hodges was very attentive and considerate of my comfort while I waited for my vehicle to be completed. He explained in detail what was going to be done and how long it would take. I was very impressed with the service and all the kindness afforded to me. Your dealership has certainly improved under the new ownership and management! I'm impressed! Thank you!

The quality in service has dramatically improved with change in ownership. I was delighted with the change and experience.

Kevin Tyrell always takes time to discuss any issues that I think need to be addressed and provides a very positive service experience. That's why I remain very loyal to Temecula Valley Toyota.

Wagner D.

Had a great experience at Toyota Temecula Valley. My sales representative Gil Schoonover was very attentive and helpful. Even though they dint have the exact vehicle I wanted in their lot, he reached out to a sister dealership that had it and personally delivered it to my house the next day. From beginning to end we were treated with respect and did not push anything to us. Our finance rep Allen was very polite and courteous and guided us throughout all our options. I highly recommend this dealership, not only will you get to buy the high quality vehicles Toyota makes, but encounter a friendly staff that know their stuff.

-Wagner D.

Victoria P.

I agree with everyone's reviews about how easy and kind the staff are. If you are terrified of mean and rude dealership staff then this is the dealership to go to cause they are the complete opposite. Everyone is so kind and genuine. They really know how to work with you without being insulting or coming off too harsh. This was my husband and I's first time buying a car alone and they made it very smooth and simple. From the managers to financing, everyone was phenomenal. Gary was the one who helped us and he was just wonderful. I highly recommend seeing him when you go in.

I just had the best car buying experience that I have ever had. It all started 3 days ago when my wife went new car shopping, without me. She went to Temecula Valley Toyota and test drove several cars. The salesman, Leonard Holloway. was very nice and absolutely did not pressure her in anyway. So, we went back later that evening and Leonard was still there to help me try out some of the cars that my wife liked. We left that evening without making a decision, but were very pleased with the service and helpfulness that we received from Leonard. Today, I went back to test drive a few more cars and we ended up buying a 2014 Camry. Leonard and Mark Manke helped us find a car that fit our needs and our budget.  Then the sales manager, Shaun Laggren helped us with our trade-in and we made a deal that worked for all of us.  Even the financing went smoothly and we really appreciated the way that Jun Nagaoka helped us with our extended warranty and all of the loan and DMV documents.  What was most impressive was how well everyone worked together and how each person genuinely cared about our experience during the purchasing process.  Special thanks to Mark Manke who filled in for Leonard so he could take his mom out to dinner on her 70th birthday. Mark made sure that our old car was cleaned out and he had our new car cleaned and serviced.  Before we left, Mark made sure that we inspected our new car and that were familiar with all of the features of the Camry.  He even helped us sync our cell phones to the car's bluetooth devices.  If the service department is as good as the sales department; then Toyota of Temecula will have us as customers for life.

After absolutely awful experiences at other dealerships, the staff at TV Toyota really restored my faith in the car buying process.

We were met on the lot by Katie Lundquist and she began to help us even before the dealership was open. She listened, showed us exactly what we wanted and was not pushy. Unlike the salespeople at other dealerships, she stayed with us and guided us through the process. She gave us honest answers, even if it was something that we didn't want to hear or would jeopardize the sale. If she wasn't entirely sure about something, they got the information from another staff member who did.

They were very upfront about all costs and did not hesitate to make sure we understood exactly what we would be paying. They honored the price and didn't try to tack on any hidden fees.

Even in the financing process, when we weren't able to get the car that we wanted, they (Katie and an older gentlemen with shades - I forgot his name) recommended alternatives that fit both our budget and style. They worked with us and made adjustments so that we were able to walk out with vehicle and deal with which we were satisfied.

Allan was very attentive in helping us through the paperwork process and gave us pertinent and understandable information on our payments and additional services. I'll definitely be going back when the time comes for another vehicle purchase.

Caryn C.

Can I give a 10 star review?  This was hands down the best car shopping and buying experience I have had in my entire life. Tito Hernandez was amazing.  From the first point of contact through internet sales, to the close of sale he was truly professional. I never once felt pressured, or like my business wasn't of value. I think as a consumer this is the most important thing because making an investment like this is a big deal, and people want to feel like they are important and valued. I had this the whole what through with Toyota and especially Tito Hernandez. He still checks in even months after I drove my car off the lot!  He has my business for life and I cannot recommend Temecula Valley Toyota enough. I had such a great experience, my Mom came down and bought her dream car from Tito!!!

- Caryn C.

Cybill S.

Best experience buying a car!!!! I have purchased quite a few vehicles in my life and was blown away with the customer service I received from our Salesman Sean Ralstin and Sales Manager Shaun Laggren. They really made me feel like I was important and helped my husband and I with a plan that worked for us. No pressure, friendly, helpful and we weren't sitting around for hours negotiating! I love my new Toyota Tundra and would recommend buying a car from them!

- Cybill S.

The days of sleezy car salesman are over! Buying a new car has never been so painless. I went into this dealership with low expectations due to the horrendous experiences I have had with car dealerships in the past. As soon as I walked in, I was greeted by professional and courteous staff. I was helped by a young handsome gentleman by the name of Danny Watson, and I cannot give him enough praise.  From the second he shook my hand and introduced himself,  I immediately felt like I was in good hands (no pun intended). He showed me their fleet and knew every single model inside out, wowing me with his knowledge of their cars as well as the specifics of their extremely competitive finance vs lease programs. I had my mind settled on a Corolla, it's always been my dream car, and Danny took me for a test drive and gave me a comprehensive breakdown on every feature in the car,  and he was very patient when I asked 101 questions. His sense of humor and no pressure approach made me feel very relaxed and comfortable.  Although I had planned to wait a few more weeks, ultimately I could not turn down the attractive finance package Danny put together for me. Within 2 hours,  I was driving home in my new car, and with a big smile on my face. I love my new car and this dealership,  they will not pressure you and sell you cars just to meet their quota, they will listen to you and help you find the car and program that is best for you. I recommend you give them a shot, and do yourself a favor and ask for Danny W!

Shaun L. really made it happen for me. Been wanting a Tacoma for a long time and finally went to look at what it was going to cost me. Shaun offered me a better price for my trade then any other dealer and was willing to help me out to make it a reality. Not only did they work with me on my trade and overall vehicle price, the Finance guy beat my pre-approval rate by more than a point and matched their price on the GAP insurance for me. I'm going to send all of my friends and family this way if they need a Toyota because I know they will in good hands.
