"Gave Coastline Mazda a try as the local dealership, but they were over $4000 what I could get down island. I told the salesman I didn't want to waste his or my time and asked for their best price and showed the prices of the same vehicle in Courtenay and Nanaimo. The salesman and manager proceeded to do exactly what I asked them not to do - delaying tactics, bad guy/good guy approach, "I need to check with my manager" charade, using the 4 square sheet, etc. After all this, they had the gall to offer me $200 off their original price. I have had similar experiences at other Steve Marshall dealerships in Campbell River - Nissan, Mazda, Ford, and Honda. It's unfortunate as I would have preferred to buy locally. I felt badly for the salesman and place direct responsibility on the dealer principal and manager for creating this exploitative and unethical work culture. "
"I enjoyed going to Car Nation. I felt relaxed and well taken care of. Nobody pressured myself or my wife and we felt at ease. They are very knowledgeable and friendly. It was a relaxed atmosphere. Definitely my kind of place!"
