Tracey, Corey, and Brian were all great! I knew what I wanted and they were quick to respond with the best deal. I went to 3 other dealerships in the area looking for the vehicle I wanted and Gastonia beat everyone on the monthly payment by a lot. I had the BEST experience at Toyota Gastonia. I’d give them 6 stars if I could! And I love my new ride!
