Portland >Ron Tonkin Acura
Wonderful Experience. It was time to trade in my older second car for a newer second car. I dreaded getting the insulting rock bottom trade-in offer/high bid on their car run around... BUT!! After meeting and discussing my needs with Ron Glichrist on the Tonkin Previously Owned Lot affiliated with Tonkin Acura on Canyon Road, I knew that he was professional in in the best sense of the word. Had a respect for his company, respect for the customer and a goal to give his best service to both of us. I told him what I reasonable expected for a trade in and the car was evaluated and they agreed on my price. Then, once I knew what I had in trade as well as cash in pocket we shopped their online inventory to find the very best car to meet my criteria. He didn't show me cars outside of my price range and then try to sell me financing... I came away with a great car. Joss Greene at theTonkin Acura Finance office (just down the street) had my paperwork waiting to sign when I walked in! I was so relieved to find honest people to work with that I think I grinned like a goofball through-out this whole transaction ;o) The awesome manicure was the frosting on this very nice cake.

BEST PLACE TO BUY A CAR.
"My husband and I moved to Portland, Oregon not to long ago, and needed to buy a car. Serching for a car on the net making appointments it is quit the work. But I can tell you I am soooo glad to have made my appointment to see an Acura TSX at Ron Tonkin. I went there and I asked for the Sales associate whom I was supposed to see, Steve D. He was really nice showing me the car and went for a test drive. As we were test driving it, I had questions about other cars. As we enter the driveway back, I saw a Nissan Altima on the lot and asked to test drive it. So I did. Biiiig difference. The day before my husband was telling me about the Acura TL's. As we approach the parking lot back from the Nissan testdrive (as this was also a choice on our list) I have asked Steve to tell me more the difference between TSX and TL. Of course as my husband was saying TL was a better engine more luxurious car. I get ready to leave when Steve said: There is a TL right here in the parking lot, would you like to test drive this one? HMMMMMM!!!!!! Sure, I said. I can only tell you as soon as I got in that car I did not want to get out. What imppressed me also the most was not only how the car drove and felt, but how much Steve knew about it. How well he discribed pretty much every feature that came with it (nav. system, blue tooth for your phone, sunroof, surround sound, etc.) to name a few. I was very impressed and at the same time so happy to hear about it. Now, yes, the car itself really made me feel comfortable when I got in, but if it wasn't for Steve I would have never known all the things the car can do. The car, YES #1, but the service from everyone involved was really a big part in making my decision. EXCELLENT.
RON TONKIN ACURA ROCKS!!!"
Better than the Mercedes dealer, by far. We have a Mercedes and an Acura and Ron Tonkin Acura has far better service than the Mercedes dealer. Service always exceeds expectations and they always do something more than they were asked to do. The stitching on the steering wheel had come lose and instead of repairing it, they replaced the steering wheel. One time the car was in for service and they replaced the wind shield wipers for free. By the way, we bought our Acura from a dealer in the San Francisco area and went to Ron Tonkin when we moved here. Don't bother looking for another dealer, this is the best service department we have ever found anywhere.
Actually look forward to all things Beaverton Acura.
Um, what can I say? Most dealerships make you want to take a hot shower when you are through. Not Acura. The salestaff is made up of normal people, that make quick, dead-on best price deals, no bs. The big cheese there is a family firiend of a close friend. So CLEARLY not my friend, but when we went car shopping together; he made me the same killer deal he made her. And afterwards, at oil changes and such, he always remembers me and not in that 'name on a 3 x 5 card' kind of way.
Also- duh, pedicures, manicures and massage all are available during servicing- as are lattes and the like, sodas, whatever. They wash your car - in side and out - after anything they do with your car and leave big ol' dark chocolate medalions in your car. They always give me three, because I have three kids. My hubby drives one too, but he only gets one : )
A total pleasure, every single time. Even if you are buying another 'breed' of car, ck the Acura ads bc a ton of people trade in their MB, Audis, BMW's there, so they do have other kinds. My friend bought a Volvo wagon on the day we went in. anyhoo, I never write reviews, but seriously loathed car shopping before this.
Great buying experience. Like most, I don't like working with car salespeople. My husband and I just to look and test drive and collect information on a car like we'd done on two other types. Didn't plan on buying a car, but they were so reasonable on my price and made the experience painless. Very professional, I'd definitely go back. And I LOVE my Acura TL so much. Much better than the Audi A4 or BMW 3 series we'd also went and drove. Go Ron Tonkin! Go Acura!
