Our recent purchase of a 2018 Mazda CX-5 GT Tech was made with L. A. Mazda (30 min from our home), although we live in Sherwood Park with a Mazda dealer less than 2 minutes away. From the moment we arrived at the Leduc dealership, we were greeted and shown around the facility, which is partitioned with glass walls separating the service area from the show room. There are 2 comfortable waiting areas with free refreshments and comfortable seating areas. The sales people have their own offices, as opposed to desks in the show room or cubicles. We arrived after supper and were never rushed or pushed to make a decision for a purchase. We dealt with Mr. Gary Clark, who was the most product knowledgeable sales person we have ever met - having grown up racing Mazda products and being very interested in them. We had decided to purchase the CX-5 GT Tech prior to visiting this dealership and had priced out the unit from our dealership in Sherwood Park, but we were encouraged by a friend to check out the Leduc dealership as they recommended them from their car shopping experience a few years earlier. After that meeting with Mr. Gary Clark, who provided us with extra options: winter tires on rims; remote starter at a much better price than we could get elsewhere - even outside of a dealership, we decided to purchase from them at a reduced price from the dealer in Sherwood Park. However, it was the way we were treated with respect; the confidence and knowledge in their products and the cleanliness and professional facility that won us over, as we intend to make the 30 minute drive for their for service, as well. There were a few glitches when we received the car, prior to a large snowstorm this past weekend, but we are confident that they will be resolved in a timely and professional manner. Prior to taking the car from the dealership; Mr. Gary Clark completely explained everything, including the purchase and all operating parameters. He also helped with set up tips and explained how to deal with faults, should they occur. He thoroughly explained how to navigate through the electronic system, helped set up the Bluetooth for the phones and made us feel comfortable with the electronic systems. He also gave us his contact information should we have any other concerns. The car weathered the snowstorm exceptionally well and it was fun to find excuses to go out for drives! All things considered, having owned this Mazda CX-5 GT Tech less than a week, we are thrilled with the car and even more thrilled with the Dealership and Mr. Gary Clark! We read the dealerrater.ca reviews on many dealers and we searched for many months for a replacement vehicle that would best suit our needs. We are happy that we took our friend's advice to visit LA Mazda and we are looking forward to working with them in the future. We are also going to purchase another vehicle soon and will definitely make LA Mazda (also Nissan & Dodge/Jeep) our first choice! Please note that we did not finance or have a trade, as it was a cash sale. Because of the excellence we received from LA Mazda, we felt strongly that we should share our experience with others and let you know that this is a dealership far above any others we have seen in the Edmonton area. I will write another update in a year or so, but based on our car hunting experience for the past year, this truly has been an unexpected treasure.
