I searched online from three hours south to find a car for my son living in Lakeland, so I checked all the local dealers for used and new cars. Once I narrowed my search to new cars, I found that I could secure a new car for the same amount as a used car with too many miles. Then I narrowed my search to the Jetta, the Camry, the Civic, and the Sentra. Once I narrowed even further, I determined that if what I was seeing on the Jenkins site was true, I couldn't pass up such a deal. I checked all the dealers in the Lakeland surrounding area including Tampa, Orlando, Lake Wales and one other. All the other prices were at least $3000 more than Jenkins Nissan. I spoke with Rita Garrison via email and she was very thorough and even showed me one for less than I was considering. My main issue was to include bluetooth capability because, after all, it was for a college student. I saved an additional $500 from her help and from her listening to my concerns. I have never negotiated a $6000 discount from MSRP when buying a new car even after hours of back and forth from the traditional fighting between the sales person running to the manager and playing the OLD game. This transaction was absolutely seamless and stress free. I knew from Rita's personal touch and demeanor that she is an honest, straight forward person who tells it like it is. If you are one who wishes to squeeze even further, go to another dealer and don't insult anyone's intelligence. You will never squeeze any dealer for more than $6000 and I am still surprised that there were not any surprises once I arrived at the dealership. Rita introduced us to a wonderful specialist, Rashon Clark, who directed us to the car choices and helped us with the decision making and explaining thoroughly about each car fitting our parameters. There were still no surprises, and Rashon is an absolute gem. He's one of those people you'd like to have as a close friend. Then, I figured I'd be hit with a high percentage rate for financing in order for Jenkins to recoup their losses from discounts. That didn't happen. I am pleased with 2.09%. Granted, my credit score helps. That's your issue if it is higher. Deal with your credit and you will reap the rewards of lower percentage rates for financing. My surprise, though, was not seeing a higher rate just to make up for their generosity in discounts. So, in short, I highly recommend purchasing from Jenkins Nissan and specifically Rita Garrison and/or Rashon Clark because they are wonderful to work with and the only surprise you will find is that everything they state online will be as it is when you walk into the showroom from start to finish. And, to top it off, when you go old school and fight with the manager with the back and forth, it will take you many grueling hours to complete and you will feel like you just got beat up. If you contact Rita, you will be in and out in a couple hours with a smile on your face and ready for your favorite activity, whatever that may be. Cheers!
MY personal experience it's a COMPLETE NIGHTMARE" DO NOT GIVE THEM YOUR BUSINESS AND DO NOT EVER TRUST THEM! VERY.BAD business practice! I am highly upset with this lousy faulty deceptive dealer. Rita garrison emailed me a price quote and convinced me over the phone that will be the selling price and I should fill out a credit application online and had me sent them a copy of my driver's license to them. After they get everything they need then there's the $2000 more bomb dropped on me. They claimed the owner had put the wrong price on the internet, which all three of the with the same model and price, even the model had match the advertised model discount? That's a mistake?....Really? Well, looking at the inventories that they had over the internet, it doesn't seems to be that big of mistake in his pocket. It made his pocket pretty healthy. No! I don't have extra $2000 of my hard earning money for people like you and your internet director, Rita Garrison!

Great Salesman – When I walked into the doors of Jenkins Nissan, I had a very professional salesman walk up to me. Mario Dorado made my truck buying experience a wonderful one. He never put any pressure on me. I went in looking for a truck for my husband. I told him what I was looking for and he took me to the truck that I wanted. I brought my husband back and he was very pleased with the truck that Mario helped me pick out. He made everything so easy that day. The finance department got us at the payments that we asked for. If you are looking to buy a vehicle I would recommend, Mario Dorado.
