This Hyundai Sonata is the 4th Hyundai I have purchased from this dealership. Hyundai is the best vehicle to drive and I will only go to Centennial Hyundai to purchase and service my vehicles. Centennial Hyundai has the greatest teams to work with to make the car buying and service of the vehicle experience a breeze.

THE ONLY PLACE TO BUY A NEW HYUNDAI

We have purchased three new vehicles from the dealership since 2014 because they offer the best deals and service. Our most recent purchase is a 2019 Santa Fe SUV which replaces the 2014 Azera and the 2016 Accent. The service department is outstanding and we can't say enough good things about our favorite Service Advisor, Bryan Zasloff. We know our vehicle will get the correct service when he takes care of us. Our recent purchase was handled by Joesph Jacoby, the Internet Sales Mgr. He really worked hard to get us the best possible deal on our trade-ins and the new Santa Fe. Ricky Walker made the gransition to the new vehicle seamless and easy. He should teach a class about all of the great things that come with your new vehicle.

Joe went above & beyond!

I was in the market for a new Sante Fe XL and submitted an online request through Hyundai.com. I was contacted by Joe Jacoby and we talked about the specific features that I wanted and needed. Unfortunately, they didn’t have a car with what I wanted at the dealership. Joe tracked one down 6 hrs away, and drove it get it for me. Joe did a great job keeping me up to date on the search and his travels going to pick it up. He worked with my schedule of when I could pick it up, and I didn’t feel the ‘car buying pressure’ you hear about with most dealers. And the best part - I LOVE my new Santa Fe XL,

Almost 6 star

I love this dealership, great experience in the sales dept. I love my new car, it's my 2nd Hyundai. I visited 4 dealerships before I bought my car from them. Terry my salesman was 100% wonderful. Ash, Niko, Gilbert, Bob from finance was 100% wonderful. They took care of things needed taking care of. I would buy my next car from them. Porchia in delivery sucked! She was told to help me with my car but she was not willing and she had me in the 101 degree heat outside with her even after I asked can we go in the shaded area, She said no. And She told me my salesman was suppose to do her job. The lead delivery guy apologized and informed me that Porchia was in training still and he went over with me about the car. My car had to go back to be detailed due to waterspots inside and out and to replace 1 window tint that had scratches, Taylor Feldman was the first person I spoke to and flatly informed me it was my fault I left the dealership with the car in that condition, she told me it was my fault and that she had no proof I did not do the scratch on my window tint. Why would I scratch my new car that I love???? She also told me her manager would not approve the repair, so I hang up on her. She was very snooty, very combative over the phone. I hope to not deal with her in the future. All repairs was approved despite what she told me. Taylor Felman is not professional.

We went to several other dealerships and were pressured -- one of them in particular being Volkswagen. ( If you go there, take a spare key , because they keep your keys while they high pressure you and jerk you around while you sit there for 45 minutes. Also are very rude when you ask for your keys)........ Finally we went to Centennial Hyundai....A world of difference!!!! Just wanted to help us find the right car, and they did!!!!

Beware if you purchase GAP insurance from them!

BEWARE if you purchased a vehicle from them with GAP insurance coverage. My new Hyundai was totaled on 5/20/2019 and as of today 9/17/2019 the GAP insurance is still not settled. Latest update is I will be stuck with $1543.56 to settle my loan. My primary insurance was very quick to settle, but National Motor Club LLC , GAP insurer who was happy to take $850 for GAP insurance coverage is still refusing to cover their portion after almost 4 months. This has affected my credit score and dealership has done nothing but make promises that they will resolve the issue. GAP insurance sound great, Until you need to use it, If this dealership sells you a GAP policy, Hope that you never have to use it !!!

Roy and staff got us in the car we were looking for.

My fiance and I had been in the market for new car. We just had our son a little over a month earlier, and felt like we needed something more reliable, and with a bit more room. We had been comparing the Tucson and Ford Escape. In the end we chose the Tuscon. Not only because I am a Hyundai guy, but Centennial had great deals with their summer clearance event going on. 0% for 72 months on Tuscons and Sante fe, can't beat that. From the moment we arrived we weren't bombarded with salesmen, we were given space. Shortly after looking at one of the Tuscons up front we were approached by Roy. Who couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Long time experience in the business and very professional. Roy took good care of us, and gave us the time we needed to go through the models and options we were interested in. Took us for a test drive and never felt pressured. In the end Roy helped us get into the car we were looking for. Big thanks to Roy, and even Ash, who came over to help make a deal that worked for us. Gilbert in finance was a real nice guy too. Also, Lilly who goes over the features of your new car was great as well. Thanks Roy and the whole team at Centennial Hyundai!

Pontus was great got it done quickly with no issues, the only thing was when he ran the credit it went to 4-5 different credit companies with a credit score over 830 why was it run to so many companies? I had so many credit alerts from Life Lock from companies I did not even know about, I thought it was being run through Hyundai credit, was surprised I now have 4 new inquiries.

My experience in purchasing a car.

I was in the market to upgrade my 2014 Hyundai. I went on line to review the three Hyundai dealerships in the Las Vegas area. I chose Centenial based on location and the on line autos that they showed. I was able to purchase a used 2018 Hyundai with low mileage at a reasonable price. I was impressed with the Sales team; particularly in that they did not pressure me into buying a car but took the time to show me a number of cars.

Bait and switch tactics. Smoke and mirrors financing. My wife and I found our car online - it was at their dealership. We already had financing through our credit union at a lower rate of 1.99%. They made up some excuse that they couldn't use our credit union and after talking about the "100K warranty" like it was included at no charge and the highest interest rate they would charge would be 3.99%, they tried to add charges for 100K warranty and etched windows. I had them take the charges off, and basically it went south from there. They realized they weren't going to make that much off us. I honestly don't know who writes their good reviews! Mark and Aaron are snakes (finance) Russ may or may not have been in cahoots.. After a half-hearted attempt to talk to my credit union (and insulting them)they said I needed to sign a "back-up contract" at 6.99%! Revenge on me I guess for not buying their con and seeing through it. I wrote Hyundai corporate and I'm not done with these guys. I'm trying to warn off people from their sleazy tactics. Buyer beware!

Russell was awesome! I purchased. 2020 Palisade this week, and he helped me switch over from my lease. He didn’t pressure me at all. He was professional, up front, and honest with me. I got everything I wanted and more! Amazing service!

Great Service!

Incredibly grateful to have gotten Max's help

I just want to start this off with, if ANYONE can keep up with my dad, they deserve huge props. My dad is extremely outspoken and can hold up a conversation that will branch off to a bunch of other conversations, so whoever can keep that conversation going has some really good people skills, especially considering the fact none of us are the most fond of salespeople. With that being said, after going onto the lot to look at the Hyundai Kona, Max Villasenor approached him and he already liked Max by the first impression. He was comparing the Crosstrek with Kona (I have a Crosstrek myself, but those Konas look great!), Max was incredibly helpful with comparing the two vehicles and narrowing down what was best for him while only explaining positives. I'm typically wary of salespeople who bash other brands but Max didn't do that at all. By the end of it, my dad and his girlfriend got a great deal and Max was very transparent and helpful through the whole process. His people skills, kindness, and professionalism definitely makes him a good asset to any dealership. There were no headaches, and now my dad's girlfriend loves her vehicle. They can't stop talking about it. Thank you so much for your help Max! There's nobody else I would trust if they were looking for a Hyundai.

New vehicle purchase

From the time my wife and I drove in till we signed the dotted line, we were met with professionalism and courteous behavior from all involved. Victor Perez made the selection process fun and easy while Ryan Ragland competently explained the mountain of papers/tech to be signed skillfully with an enjoyable sense of expertise. Everyone was nice and the guys behind the desk were involved and helpful as well. As we ended up staying past the closing time, there were no complaints or feelings of being rushed. Thank to all on your professional atmosphere at Centennial Hyundai,

Love my car, Rick is the man.

Good experience. Friendly people who made the process easy. Love the new car, seems like the price was fair. Rick did a great job explaining all the new features. Niko was patient and explained the financing process to us. Would recommend to anyone buying a car.

Mel made the buying process enjoyable. He's very friendly and down to earth. My family loved his personality and his great humor. He's the kind of guy who goes out of his way to make sure that you're taken care of. He truly enjoys his work, and as a potential customer it makes the whole process so much better.

Where do I begin to start, from the moment I walked in that service door I was greeted and taken care of like family. Becky took me in and listened to each concern I had and made sure everything was going to be taken care of. She found out what was the issue and told me I was covered. She saved me so much money! The only thing I had to do was to leave my car for the next day which I kinda hesitated to do because I needed my car for work. She told me she could have it done by the morning but would definitely give me a call if things did not get done on time, so I left my car. The next morning I received a call from her and told me it will be a close call, she said she would give me a call back in an hour. An hour later she would give me a call to tell me my car was all done and all my car issues were all fixed, So I told her I would head out on an Uber, when she stopped me and said “not necessary I’ll have the shuttle pick you up”. Before I knew it the shuttle was outside my house ready to take me to the dealership. As soon as I got there she made it a priority to get me my car keys so that I’m could make it into work on time. I could not thank her enough for her excellent customer Service and compassion. I was so grateful about the whole situation that I decide to buy warranty which of course Becky pointed me to the right person to talk to about that. They have definitely gained a loyal customer now thanks to Becky! Thank You!

A mixed bag

the autoguard warranty extension was offered for $5.00 per month but no mention of the $2199.00 additional cost. I feel we were misled and we subsequently cancelled the Autoguard warranty. Gilbert helped me to cancel but only replied to email on the contract. I used another email and he did not reply.
