    Dealer Review:

    Best experience ever! No hassle, super friendly. The easiest car shopping I have ever experienced. Great customer service in all aspects of the purchase. Quick and efficient use of my time. Clearly stated price quotes online. I decided to go completely online after test-driving the car I wanted and received not much customer services from my local dealer because they were too busy. The internet sales person I contacted at Lexus of Serramonte was David Grech. He quoted me the best price that was far better than any other quotes I’ve gotten in the Bay area on my first round of comparison shopping. He also responded promptly on all my questions about additional options to be put in. I had no doubt that he had already earned my business after I reviewed all the quotes. My husband and I drove 50 miles to the dealership and David was busy with another customer so he got Steve Bailey to help us. Steve gave us a superb test-drive tour for the car and spent a great deal of time with us answering all the questions and making sure we were comfortable with our choices. Not only do we love our new car, we love the service. Thank you so much Lexus of Serramonte. You deserve 6 stars!

I had to go in because I was impressed that Mike G. responded to so many of the reviews, good or bad. The deal was details were clear up front and stayed consistent throughout. Sean was almost as excited about my 2019 MX-5 as I was and I felt like I was in control of the process. Above all, where I have spent 3 hours at a dealership just to buy the car which I have already settled on, the entire process at Marin Mazda took less then an hour of my time in which the actual visit to purchase the car only took 20 minutes. This is because the team members there worked the deal between visits rather than only doing it while I am there, waiting. -Christopher B.DISCLAIMER: All Inventory listed is subject to prior sale.

    Dealer Review:

    On Sat., January 14, 2017 we contacted Marin Subaru via email for a price quote on a 2017 Subaru Forester 2.0 XT Touring AWD Quartz Blue Pearl. We received a reply back from Amber (internet manager) quoting us $29,282. On Sunday, 1/15/17 we received another email from Amber confirming if we received the quote (since it is possible for the email to go to junk mail). My husband called her to set an appointment to test drive the car. Especially since the SUV would be for me and I wasn't sure if I would like it, since I am petite. To be honest, I'm not a diehard Subaru owner, that would be my husband. It took a lot of convincing and researching on his part to find me the car I would love. When we arrived around 3 pm. After test driving the vehicle, I FELL IN LOVE with it. I even told her she doesn't need to put it back in the showroom because I'm driving that baby home. She laughed and said "it's ok I'll have someone else put it back". Heck that should have been my clue that it wasn't going to happen. When we got to her office, she asked us what was the amount she quoted us? We told her $29,282. Her response "that was a mistake". I said "what do you mean it was a mistake". The lowest I can go for this vehicle is $34,000 something. I explained to her this is the rate you quoted us and you should honor it. Especially since she sent us a follow up email. Her reply, "I made a mistake and we have the option to take this offer (she gave me the paperwork with the new price) or not". She then went on stating that the model we picked is a popular model and they can easily sell it for profit. When I asked to speak to her boss, she said her boss would only give this amount and no lower. She mentioned they were a mom and pop store and we would have better luck going to Serramonte Subaru, they might give you this deal. WTF!!!! Is what is going through my mind. I told her, it was not right what they were doing. She just said, it was a mistake. When I spoke to other dealerships, they indicated if the salesperson quoted us a price, they must honor it. If it is a loss, it would come out of their own commission. Apparently neither Amber nor her manager was willing to do this. These are managers not sales associates. It goes to say how they run things at this establishment. I feel this is a bait and switch and for someone who confirmed the email to us twice, should have honored the price. Avoid this place at any cost. They seem to use the excuse "they are a mom and pop shop" only when it benefits them. A part of me wishes I didn't even test drive the Touring model. Even though we bought the XT model without all the bells & whistles, I have something to compare it with. It's like HGTV when they show someone a house, they love it, only to tell them "haha you can't afford this". Unlike HGTV they say "but we can find you one that's in your budget and give you everything you wanted". In the end they love it even more. Amber & the manager at this establishment took that part away from me.

When I asked to speak to her boss, she said her boss would only give this amount and no lower. She mentioned they were a mom and pop store and we would have better luck going to Serramonte Subaru, they might give you this deal. WTF!!!! Is what is going through my mind. I told her, it was not right what they were doing. She just said, it was a mistake. When I spoke to other dealerships, they indicated if the salesperson quoted us a price, they must honor it. If it is a loss, it would come out of their own commission. Apparently neither Amber nor her manager was willing to do this. These are managers not sales associates. It goes to say how they run things at this establishment. I feel this is a bait and switch and for someone who confirmed the email to us twice, should have honored the price. Avoid this place at any cost. They seem to use the excuse "they are a mom and pop shop" only when it benefits them. A part of me wishes I didn't even test drive the Touring model. Even though we bought the XT model without all the bells & whistles, I have something to compare it with. It's like HGTV when they show someone a house, they love it, only to tell them "haha you can't afford this". Unlike HGTV they say "but we can find you one that's in your budget and give you everything you wanted". In the end they love it even more. Amber & the manager at this establishment took that part away from me.

    Dealer Review:

    On Sat., January 14, 2017 we contacted Marin Subaru via email for a price quote on a 2017 Subaru Forester 2.0 XT Touring AWD Quartz Blue Pearl. We received a reply back from Amber (internet manager) quoting us $29,282. On Sunday, 1/15/17 we received another email from Amber confirming if we received the quote (since it is possible for the email to go to junk mail). My husband called her to set an appointment to test drive the car. Especially since the SUV would be for me and I wasn't sure if I would like it, since I am petite. To be honest, I'm not a diehard Subaru owner, that would be my husband. It took a lot of convincing and researching on his part to find me the car I would love. When we arrived around 3 pm. After test driving the vehicle, I FELL IN LOVE with it. I even told her she doesn't need to put it back in the showroom because I'm driving that baby home. She laughed and said "it's ok I'll have someone else put it back". Heck that should have been my clue that it wasn't going to happen. When we got to her office, she asked us what was the amount she quoted us? We told her $29,282. Her response "that was a mistake". I said "what do you mean it was a mistake". The lowest I can go for this vehicle is $34,000 something. I explained to her this is the rate you quoted us and you should honor it. Especially since she sent us a follow up email. Her reply, "I made a mistake and we have the option to take this offer (she gave me the paperwork with the new price) or not". She then went on stating that the model we picked is a popular model and they can easily sell it for profit. When I asked to speak to her boss, she said her boss would only give this amount and no lower.

High Tech Safety Features
Jim W,05/22/2018
I've had the car for nearly a year, and I have over 8,000 miles on it. I am 6'4" tall, and I have sufficient leg room up front. I have slept, fully stretched out, in the rear of the vehicle overnight several times. You have to move the front seats all the way forward, and you have to lay something on the floor of the rear cargo area to raise the floor to the same height as the back of the rear seats. But once you do that, there's plenty of room to sleep in it. I don't like the hesitation and stutter of the transmission when starting from a stop, however. The CVT is quirky, but this can be overcome with a delicate touch on the gas pedal and a lot of practice. I turned off the lane departure feature because the pulling and tugging at the steering wheel just drove me crazy. I pulled a 1,600 lbs. utility trailer behind the car for over 3,000 miles, traveling between San Diego, CA and Eugene, OR. It handled wonderfully on flat-and-level as well as mountainous roads. The high tech safety features on this vehicle are outstanding. The backup and rear cross-traffic sensors will alert you to approaching traffic even if you can't see it, and will stop the vehicle in a hurry should you fail to respond appropriately. If you want to get the maximum freeway gas mileage (33 mpg highway), you'll have to set the Adaptive Cruise Control to 65 mph. That seems to be the sweet spot on my Forester. I HAVE been able to achieve that without ACC, but the car is much better at managing fuel consumption than my right foot. The shorter wheelbase makes the Forester very responsive to steering input. That's great when it comes to the turning radius, but not so great when you're traveling at highway speeds. I found that driving on the freeway for more than an hour at a time meant that my shoulders got a little workout. The headlight beam is designed in such a way that it doesn't rise above waist height. So the traffic ahead of you aren't exposed to a lot of glare. The high beam is appropriately bright, but it too is flat on top so as to avoid shining where it doesn't have to shine. UPDATE November, 2018 Edmunds asked me to do an update, so here it is. I’ve owned the Forester for about 18 months, and I have over 12,000 miles on it. I love this vehicle as much as I did when it was brand new. I got used to the CVT, but it’s still a little annoying when shifting from reverse to drive because of the delay. Oh well! I can’t complain about the mileage on the freeway though. My best was 36.4 mpg. Pulling my 1600 lb. utility trailer drops that down to just over 15 mpg. This vehicle is rated to pull 1500, but I cheat sometimes when I’m fully loaded. I don’t do this often, but I haven’t had any problems. I’m 6’4", and I can nearly stretch out fully in the back while sleeping. What I’ve learned to do is angle my body diagonally across the back, and that gives me all the room I need. Of course the front seats have to be all the way forward. The Forester’s high clearance makes climbing over serious ruts and relatively rough terrain quite easy. It’s not designed to go rock climbing though. The street tires it came with suffice for the kind of driving I do, but if I were doing a lot of off-the-highway driving, I’d get a more aggressive tire. I also put a roof basket on top to carry additional gear. No problems there, but it cuts about 3 mpg off of the fuel consumption. The Forester has a very, very short turning radius. I have no problems making u-turns on any of the streets I have driven on. The 2.5 liter engine is perfect for this vehicle’s weight. There is a whole lot of rear-passenger leg room. I got the sunroof, and I like how it has two different open positions: normal open and "big-mouth-bass open."
