  • My Experience with Autoland in Albany

    testimonial picture

    I recently decided to update my car (I was driving a 2003 Buick Park Ave. but with low mileage and very good condition). I looked around some and then on recommendation went to Mark Glow at Autoland and he and his assiant Valarie Ethridge were the answer to my expectations. I had limited funds BUT very definite ideas in what I wanted. Mark assured me he would keep looking for just what I wanted, make, color, amenties, price etc. and that he or Valarie would keep in touch. In the meantime they let me test drive several cars including just what I wanted but the wrong color. Some weeks later I got an email that Mark thought he had the car. I called Valarie and she said to just come on out and could try it out for a day or so. I knew it was meant for me the minute I got in it but still did the test time. They could not have been any nicer...answered my every question, touched up some scratches, filled the tank with gas, Valarie got the Blue Tooth set up for me, and anotther saleman showed me how to use a couple of the amenities and set a couple for me, etc. It was a very easy time for me...no high sales pressure or such. I have told everyone who will listen how great they are and if you are in the market for a pre-owned car Autoland is the place to go if you wanted to be treated with dignity and respect but with true Southern courtesty and friendliness!!!!!!

  • Best car buying experience ever!!

    testimonial picture

    This was really the best car buying experience ever! I would rank looking at/buying cars as one of my least favorite things to do. Not with Valari! She was great to work with, no pressure and when it came to financing...she handled everything. Customer service at its best! If you are looking to buy a car, truck or SUV, go see Valari, you'll be glad you did!!

  • Great place to buy!

    testimonial picture

    This is our 4th Vehicle that we have purchased from Autoland. In the mist of those 4 vehicles we purchased a new vehicle from a local dealership. A year later we went back and bought a truck from Valerie. Buying from Autoland has always been a quick, easy, no hassle experience. I will never go any place again to purchase a vehicle. Valerie has been great and she makes buying a pleasure.

  • Best Car Buying Experience

    testimonial picture

    Last year I was in market for a an SUV. My husband and I went up to Autoland and got the best service. Luis Zapata sold me my Jeep. I was very pleased with the experience of buying a vehicle. I came back again last year and he put my husband in a Mustang. He provides the best costumer service and will do what ever needs to be done to ensure that the customer is happy.

    testimonial picture

    My experience with buying my Toyota Camry, I have been trying to get a Camry for so long, at least 2 years, everywhere I went it was always a catch, and I never left the car lot with the car of my dreams. I have always dreamed of a black Toyota Camry black leather interior and tinted windows, the moment I pulled in the parking lot of Auto land, I saw my dream car, I then told Luis Zapata, I want this car, "he said drive it and tell me what you think", I immediately said no, take me in and tell me if you can finance my car, he brought me in, never once did me like the other dealers, he said yes, and now drive the car, I drove the car, and knew I would like it and sure enough I did. He said go on take it home, its yours.......I called Luis for a week straight because I couldn't believe the deal was done, he did exactly what he said he would do, he got me into my car, great great, great payments, i'm so pleased, and he was very good reassuring me of my purchase, he got me what I want, and I have no regrets, going to auto land was the best thing that have ever happened to me in my car buying experience....Luis Zapata is the BEST!!!!! Sincerely, Baby Girl!!!!!!

  • Great Used Car Dealership

    testimonial picture

    Me and my wife were in the market for a vehicle last year and ended up coming to Autoland for the first time. We worked with Luis Zapata, who absolutely has to be the hardest working man in the building! We test drove my nine cars or so and ended up settling on a 2012 Chevy Cruze. He was hands-on during the pre-sale period as well as in concerns that I had post-sale. Our experience was so phenomenal to the point when our old 1999 Tahoe finally kicked the bucket, we went back to him to see about our Yukon!

  • Amazing Service and Friendly People

    testimonial picture

    I went there set on only looking, not buying that day. Well, I ended up buying a car, but not because the sales person pushed me to. I worked with Luis Zapata, and there was absolutely no pressure to buy anything. He was very informative and helpful about the cars and only showed me ones I was interested in. After a test drive, and him offering me an amazing deal on a 2014 Ford Focus, I decided to buy it. I figured I wouldn't get such nice service elsewhere either. He worked with me and explained the different ways I could finance (since this is my first car, I had no idea) and we found a way that worked for me. Even the (surprisingly very little) paperwork was pleasant. The whole experience was very personal, and he worked to get me a great deal for the amount of money I wanted to spend. I would recommend this dealership, and this salesperson, to anyone looking for a car. It made what I thought would be an awful, stressful experience into a wonderful, pain free experience! Even the next day, after we noticed a small bounce in the car that might need to be serviced, they promptly took it for a test drive to look at it themselves and were very helpful even after they sold the car to us. Thank you Autoland, and especially Luis Zapata for such a great experience! ^-^

  • Extremely Satisfied McNair's

    testimonial picture

    My brothers car buying experience from beginning to end was professional and without stress. His salesman, Luis Zapata, was very personable and provided him and my family (it was a family experience) with excellent customer service. He made the normal stresses of buying a car non-existent. We came in with a budget and he made sure to work within that budget and provided financing which could not be beat!!!! We only looked at two cars and on the second one...it was the perfect match!!!! We took the car home, made a decision on Friday and on Saturday morning, we were out the door with keys in hand to enjoy the rest of our Memorial Day weekend!!!! My family and I want to say "Thank You" to Luis and we will definitely be recommending him in the near future!!!!

  • Professional and Caring Service

    testimonial picture

    David Smith Autoland has a customer for life. I purchased my second car from them and can not find the words to express how wonderful the experience was. Valari the sales person is a blessing to the company as she is more than a sales person she is a customer experience professional. The professionals there are very transparent with the buyers, they let you have your experience without pressure. Thier objective is to get you into an automobile that fits you and your budget, not just to get a sale. FYI, I am a real customer and this is a real review!!!! I know many people question the legitimacy of reviews.

  • Excellent Customer Service

    testimonial picture

    The customer service I received today from Mark Smith at Autoland waw phenomenal. This is the first time I have purchased a vehicle and the salesman made me feel exactly the way they say they will make you feel on the commercial. He didn't try to sell me a car; he sold me the car I wanted. I recommend to anyone who is looking for a new vehicle to visit Mark Smith and David Smith Autoland in Albany, Georgia.

    I can't say enough about the professionalism of all of my contacts at David Smith Autoland. I have purchased many cars throughout the years with Valari Ethridge as my sales person. From start to finish everything was smooth and simple. Most of our transactions were accomplished over the phone because I do have trust in the business I do with them. In the end, I have been completely satisfied with the cars I purchased from David Smith Autoland.

  • Outstanding Service

    testimonial picture

    When you visit Autoland you get the red carpet treatment. Luis Zapata goes that extra mile to make sure you are happy when you leave. We have purchased two vehicals from Luis. When we returned to buy our second car, Luis remembered our name and went out of his way in finding us what we were looking for and at a deal we could not refuse. I highly recommend this dealership to my family and friends. Thank you so so much Mr. Zapata for everything !

    My son was buying his first car and the first place I went was David Smith's Autoland. I had previous experience when an older lady asked me to go with her to buy a car. I saw then as I saw today the professional and pain free way to buy a car. Thanks Valari, we got what we needed at the price we needed.

  • This is the model of how car buying should be.

    testimonial picture

    I called Mr. Mark and gave him the description of the car I wanted. He called me back in a few days and said to come pick up my car! I test drove it for a few days and I called Valari when I was ready to sign and she had all the paperwork ready upon my arrival. I was in and out. This is the model of how car buying should be.
