Happy Customers

My husband and I recently bought a newer car, 2011 Malibu Fleet at Academy Cars, and I have to say that the staff there are great! Everyone was friendly and generous without being too pushy or obnoxious into selling you a vehicle. The atmosphere is really laid back. In particular I like to give props to Guy Neighbors who helps us with obtaining our new car. He may be the new kid on the block there but he knows his game and was very helpful and courteous and funny. He made us feel at ease, like we were doing the right thing. Thank you Academy Cars for helping us get a new car, you ROCK! Hope y'all have a successful and fruitful year!

I went to Academy Cars fresh out of bankruptcy (I'm talking days) and they helped me get into the fuel efficient family sized beautiful car I'd been hoping for!!!! Bill Goodson was very efficient and let me know before hand what he needed from me and he was very quick too get started once we got there!! From start to finish it was a good experience made the kids and I very comfortable and at home. The kids LOVED the free popcorn!!

Bill was great, treated us good and helped us through a normally stressful situation. We appreciate all the extra effort and going above and beyond to help us. This would be first stop if we were ever in the need for another vehicle. This was our second purchase from Academy.

Walked into Academy after visiting another local big car dealership that said they would do anything to help me. I was greeted right away by Mike and he sat me and my fiance down right away to get me financed. He also noticed my car, trade, was smoking in the drive way, YIKES!! Mike went to work right away. I disclosed that I always paid cash for my car and never financed one before, I also recently filed a bankruptcy which was done and over but would make it difficult for a bank to loan to me. He went over my options and worked diligently to get me approved. After he went back to his desk the owner Lonnie walked up to me and introduced his self. I was oblivious to who he was, but he treated me like family and I soon calmed down and knew I was in good hands. I then met his wife and did not know they were co-owners of the dealership. I was so impressed. I was a first time buyer, with a bankruptcy, and got approved and drove away in a Much newer and Way more Reliable car with AWESOME warranties on the vehicle. So impressed. I never felt less than for having poor credit, for coming into their lot in a car on its last leg, or for being at their mercy and feeling that they would take from me and not have my best interest in mind. I will definitely recommend coming here for the best quality service. JUST ASK FOR MIKE!!!

My husband and I just traded in our old car for something new, with low mileage, and looks good. Ron and Mrs. Blackburn were very helpful and knowledgeable not only about the options but about financing as well. There were plenty of cars to choose from and they were able to help us find and buy the car we really wanted.

Debbie made sure we were comfortable and listened to what we needed specifically before placing us in a van that met all our needs. We got the car payment we could afford, the seating and cargo space we need for our family and a car 10+ years younger than the one we had to trade in.

I walked into Academy Cars with no history of ever having to take a loan for a car out before. I have always paid cash (for much older cars that never lasted more than a few years) and have a lot of student loans that I am paying off. I was wary about having to purchase something that I would have to make payments on, as I am a single mother, with a strict budget. I had a down payment of only $500 and traded in a 1994 Toyota Corolla, that I think they gave me MORE than it was worth for a trade-in, and left with a 2010 Toyota Corolla, fully loaded and beautifully cared for. It's been almost a year that I've owned the car and the payments are fair for my credit and lending history ( I did have to get a co-signer ). My experiences there since, with getting regular maintenance on the car have also been terrific, they get me in quickly and out with a smile. Thanks for taking a chance on this single mom who desperately needed a reliable vehicle. You guys are awesome and best of all - honest and genuine, and I know you'll be helping many more people in the future.

This was our second time around at Academy Cars. The first experience was great, we got a nicer, newer car with no haggling. This time around was just as great. Our salesman Ron was professional, honest, and answered all our questions. He even stayed late so we could drive away that night with our new car. Thank you for another great car buying experience. We will definitely recommend you to others and come back again!

This is a great dealership. I went in not sure I would get a car or not. They worked with my husband and I to get the best deal for us. We got exactly what we were looking for, for just the right price. I would highly recommend Academy Cars to anyone. They don't push you just to get a sale. They take all your wants into consideration. All of the workers there were friendly and helpful in one aspect or another. Thanks Academy Cars!!

Excellent experience from browsing to our first oil change with the service department. Deb sold us an SUV. She followed through with every question we asked and need we had. This might have been our best car-buying experience ever.

I was treated as if i was a long time customer and friend. Lonnie Blackburn and Brad Medlen worked hard to get me the car I wanted at the price I wanted. Lonnies motto is "Car Dealer For The People" and he definitely went the extra mile for me. I would recommend this dealer to every one I know thats in the market to buy a great used car.

I was needing a dependable used car for my daughter and an upgrade for myself. I visited Bill at Academy Cars and in one day found a fantastic Honda for my daughter and a loaded VW Jetta for myself. The entire team assisted us and made us very comfortable through the entire process. My daughter and I both bought with confidence and for the first time I didn't come away feeling like I had somehow gotten a bad deal. In fact I feel like we got great deals and a fair trade for my old vehicle. They are ALL good people over there and I WILL be returning for my next car purchase. In addition, I highly recommend that if you want a fair deal and truly enjoyable car buying experience, go see Bill at Academy. If he is busy any of the other team members will be happy to help you!

After dealing with other dealers this was a breath of fresh air. No pressure and realistic. They knew what we wanted and worked to make sure it would work for us. I would and am recommending this dealership to everyone I know. Love my new car and when it is time know where I will get my next one. A big thanks to all the staff for all the help with making my car dreams come true.

Our family had a great experience at Academy Cars today. Our salesman, Bill, was very thoughtful and made sure the car we purchased fit our needs and our budget! They had a great selection to choose from as well. The whole process from start to finish was a pleasure. I highly recommend that you check out Academy Cars if you are looking for a nice used vehicle!
