Brought a used "certified" Honda Accord with my trade in. Deal was made in a short time that I felt was fair to both parties. After vehicle was detailed and certified and payment made, it was determined that there was several problems in the certification to include a faulty windshield. Upon discussion with sales manager, the windshield was replaced immediately at their expense. Been dealing with auto dealerships for over 40 years, and this experience with Wilde Honda is by far the best overall experience that I have had. Really want to thank the below Honda employees for listening ...

Everybody is different and has certain likes and dislikes when it comes to sales and everything that goes along with it. Working with Michael was an absolute pleasure. Flynt, Michael, and Eddie were all great, but Michael was extremely attentive. He quickly quickly recognized what I was looking for and my budget, which allowed us to come to what I think is a very fair deal. Michael offered anything we needed when it came to questions, trying out the vehicles, etc. From the beginning to the end, all three employees, but especially Michael were beyond professional. There’s nothing I ...

Wilde Honda is different. After recently completing my second used vehicle purchase from them, I can confidently say that this is not the "usual" automobile dealership. The staff are professional, helpful, and courteous. The dealership always seems to have a great selection of vehicles, both new and used. And the buying experience here is so much more pleasant than at other dealerships that it's truly refreshing. If you aren't already working with someone regarding your vehicle purchase, I highly recommend Martha Calero. She works hard to understand your needs and wants, and makes so much of ...

Bought a lot of cars in my life but by far this was my best experience all do to Mike Malmsbury. Just told him what I was looking for in a car, a fair price and it was a done deal. With all the new electronics in the car Mike took his time showing my wife and I how everything worked. If ever need another car I will definitely go see Mike at Wilde Honda. Thanks Mike for making my car buying experience easy.

Martha at Wilde Honda was absolutely incredible! This was the best car buying experience EVER!! The coolest part was I never had to step foot in the dealership. Martha communicated through text, delivered the vehicle to my work so I could test drive, and once we decided to buy she brought the paperwork to me! Gone are the days of sitting in a dealership for hours on end. All the staff at Wilde Honda are professional and courteous! I can’t say thank you enough!!

Michael Malmsbury has been our sales representative for 5 years since we moved to Sarasota. Over those years we have leased at least 6 vehicles from him! He is extremely knowledgeable about all the Honda vehicles, but more important is exceptional to work with, professional, courteous, efficient, and we will continue to work with him on all future sales. We have referred all our friends to deal with Michael, because of all our past experiences with him!!

Jim Timpson went above and beyond the call of duty before, during, and after the point of sale. He is trustworthy and loyal. He advocated for me, and I will advocate for him. Jim Timpson is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

I am new to Florida. I had sold my beloved Honda CRV before I relocated here . So I wanted another reliable, look good car. I looked online and called a number of dealerships in the area.. they all seemed pushy, aggressive…I could not deal with that. I have had Hondas for years and knew their certified stamp really meant a dependable car in good operating condition and not much that goes wrong mechanically. So I went to the Honda Dealerships online…same thing: pushy. But then, I was online and looked at Hondas on the Wilde Honda website. I ...

Working with Martha was great, she is very respectful, listens to her customers. She will treat you're friends and family like royalty and when it comes to new and used or certified pre-owned Honda not only is this dealership amazing and they have a ton of cars, but they will follow up and make sure you are happy long term. Thanks for all that you do Martha and Jay!

I was shopping for a used Rav4 and came across one at this dealership that I was interested in. I emailed an inquiry on Sunday (Easter) not expecting to hear from anyone until later in week. To my surprise Brenda emailed me back. I had quite a few questions about the car and she was able to answer them. She was very helpful and not "pushy." After a few emails back and forth and a video call we agreed on a price by late Monday. She was very professional but at the same time "genuine" and ...

Have been working with Michael for over 10 years and our experience with him has always been outstanding. He makes the process of buying a car so simple, effortless and quick. I would never see anyone else except for Michael. Even in finance with Joe, it was simple & easy. He makes you feel comfortable and makes it easy to and ask questions. Will continue to do business with Honda because of my previous experience with Michael and Joe.

During this trying time with the pandemic going on, I was VERY leery about buying a car and going into a dealership. I worked with Brenda Jayne and she was FANTASTIC. We were able to do all the negotiations via text and call. She was very pleasant, accommodating and a pleasure to work with. Once we arrived we just had to test drive the car and then into Finance. Once we got into Finance, we worked with Raphael Carlisi. Raphael was a breeze to work with as well. He went over our options and had the paperwork ready for us ...
