I have a paid for 2011 Honda CRV with approximately 131,000 miles. Two weeks ago the ac quit and the temps in central Texas have been 100 degrees plus. Repair estimate was $1153 to replace the compressor.

Having listened to your radio show for several years, I applied online for my VIP pass and called Howdy Honda CarPro Specialist, Marshal Goldstein; he gave me his cell. I told him the about the lack of ac, bumper ding and driver armrest. Otherwise the car is in good condition for its age. Looked online at vehicles available and low and behold a 2016 brown Honda CRV with beige interior was on the lot. Texted him it was the one I was interested and he responded he would keep an eye on it. My plan was to come in this past Saturday.
At 72 years of age, the heat was too much to drive back and forth to work, so I had the ac repaired. I texted Marshall Friday afternoon to let him know that for now finances would not allow me to take on 200 plus payments; thanked him for his time; and that if and when I could consider purchasing another vehicle I would contact him again. I believe your partnering with certain dealerships to provide a superior buying experience is the way to go. Thank you, Jerry Reynolds, for all you do.

I have previously bought Honda Passport/ Pilot/Accord and have never had this experience. It was very pleasant even though I had done my research and knew what I wanted. Prior Honda purchases have been very stressful. I will buy my next vehicle by going thru CarPro dealer. Nik was extremely considerate, helpful, patient, help in setting personalize my 2019 vehicle prior to leaving the lot. Nik went out of his way to make sure I was comfortable with my purchase and what I wanted. No pressure in purchasing the vehicle. I went to Howdy Honda from Central Texas area. Howdy Honda is a very friendly and pleasant dealership whether you are purchasing or servicing your vehicle. I would highly recommend Howdy Honda to other potential customers buyers seeking a new vehicle!

Gerry was not available so we were assigned someone else. He was nice but not experienced. We were at the dealership for 2 1/2 hours - after waiting for so long, I had to approach the sales desk myself to get the ball rolling. After finally talking to a manager, we were $1500 apart on price due to dealership additions - window tent, cvt, etc. They were not willing to budge on price despite the fact I had a lower quote from another dealership on a new car, and a higher quote on my trade-in that they could not match. Unfortunately it was far from a VIP experience. I did have a great experience at First Texas Honda, so we purchased a car with them instead! From my experience, you might want to consider having First Texas Honda as your VIP dealer

The dealership reached out to me immediately. Even though I didn't go in person, Mr. Villa was very helpful in explaining my options over the phone. Turns out it is better to wait a little bit before purchasing the CR-V I really want. I will definitely look up Mr. Villa when I'm ready to trade in my current vehicle. Thank you so much.

We had to wait a half hour and the manager didnt even meet with us. We were passed around until they finally found us a floor person to work with who didnt know much about the cars I was interested in. I would never go back there and they did not fulfill any of the things the certificate promised. Im addition, they had 1,000 packages added to the car that were mandatory and not necessary to purchase

We traded a Dodge Journey for a 2015 CRV. We were upside down at the time, but they made the financing work, coming in at my $500 monthly payment. Brad Plauche,' consummate pro and 20+ year Howdy veteran, worked with then-mgr Thano to make it all happen. Best of all, they made a believer out of Wanda. When I've called Brad or stopped in, Brad remembered me. Incredible! That was three years ago, and the CRV has just been SIMONIZED and looks almost as good as new. Mileage flirts with 30 mpg. Whenever we pass HH on 71 going into Austin, we wave. The Car Pro protocol here shows why Jerry has been so successful for 17 years with this program. Can't wait to pay off this note to be able to buy another Honda here. There simply is no other way to do business to guarantee buyer satisfaction. You may use any or all of this review.

I contacted Howdy Honda through the Carpro VIP form. Within minutes I had received a couple emails and a phone call from Edward Kwak. I headed down to the dealership. Edward was absolutely great to work with. He was professional and knowledgeable about the vehicle we were looking at. Our growing family was looking at an Odyssey. I was immediately given a great price on the vehicle, no back and forth. I had a vehicle to trade in and the first offer was a bit low from what I was hoping. Very easlily Edward worked to get the trade in value I wanted. I would recommend this dealership to anyone in the market for a Honda. We are very happy with our 2019 Honda Odyssey. Thanks Jerry for taking care of us, again, and thanks to Howdy Honda for the wonderful car buying experience.

Living in College Station, I priced the local dealer as well as Car Pro dealers in Austin, Houston, the Metroplex, and San Antonio. Equaling the best price quoted, and by far being the most polite dealership was Howdy Honda. Justin Fuller handled our purchase for Ron Victorino. He was fair, pleasant, and knowledgeable about the 2018 CR-V Touring AWD we purchased. He showed us every feature and even paired our phones and pre-set our radio stations. Even when the sales staff is first rate, you usually have to run the gauntlet when dealing with the finance officer. This was not at all the case with Howdy Honda. In a nutshell, I would describe this as the most enjoyable process of buying an Automobile I have ever experienced. At 65, I have purchased quite a few. I would rate Howdy Honda six star if I could.

Thank you, thank you for our Car Pro Certificate for Howdy Honda. We really were treated like VIPs. My husband would rather go to the dentist than deal with a car salesman, but Ted Schweitzer and the whole dealership made this a painless experience. Even Chris Hobbick in Finance was a pleasure to deal with. We have bought 15 or more vehicles, but this was the easiest and fastest transaction. Ted called us and made an appointment and greeted us warmly and treated us like VIPs. We always know the vehicle we want and he confirmed over the phone it was available and it was outside the showroom when we arrived. True to his word it was the exact vehicle we told him about on the phone. After a very short discussion on price, a deal was made and we were very pleased with the outcome. So pleased we have a 2018 Honda Odyssey Elite and we love it. We never thought we would say buying a vehicle could be enjoyable, but Ted and Honda Howdy made it that kind of experience. We certainly will recommend them (and Car Pro) to our friends and family. Thank you. James & Mary San Antonio Texas

Im addition, they had 1,000 packages added to the car that were mandatory and not necessary to purchase

Gerry was not available so we were assigned someone else. He was nice but not experienced. We were at the dealership for 2 1/2 hours - after waiting for so long, I had to approach the sales desk myself to get the ball rolling. After finally talking to a manager, we were $1500 apart on price due to dealership additions - window tent, cvt, etc. They were not willing to budge on price despite the fact I had a lower quote from another dealership on a new car, and a higher quote on my trade-in that they could not match. Unfortunately it was far from a VIP experience. I did have a great experience at First Texas Honda, so we purchased a car with them instead! From my experience, you might want to consider having First Texas Honda as your VIP dealer

Michael was very polite, patient and answered all of our questions without pressuring. Although we haven't purchased yet and it will probably not be a Honda, I give 5 stars for Michael's professionalism.

Frank was wonderful to work with. He was responsive to my questions. The time spent at the dealership was what would be expected. Never felt like I was being "gamed". This is the second car we've purchased from Howdy Honda and I'd purchase next one there.

Stephen was wonderful but I was assisting an elderly friend with the purchase of a car and she was indecisive and I don't know what she finally has decided to do. But Stephen was wonderful.

I have a paid for 2011 Honda CRV with approximately 131,000 miles. Two weeks ago the ac quit and the temps in central Texas have been 100 degrees plus. Repair estimate was $1153 to replace the compressor.

Having listened to your radio show for several years, I applied online for my VIP pass and called Howdy Honda CarPro Specialist, Marshal Goldstein; he gave me his cell. I told him the about the lack of ac, bumper ding and driver armrest. Otherwise the car is in good condition for its age. Looked online at vehicles available and low and behold a 2016 brown Honda CRV with beige interior was on the lot. Texted him it was the one I was interested and he responded he would keep an eye on it. My plan was to come in this past Saturday.
At 72 years of age, the heat was too much to drive back and forth to work, so I had the ac repaired. I texted Marshall Friday afternoon to let him know that for now finances would not allow me to take on 200 plus payments; thanked him for his time; and that if and when I could consider purchasing another vehicle I would contact him again. I believe your partnering with certain dealerships to provide a superior buying experience is the way to go. Thank you, Jerry Reynolds, for all you do.

We are trying to decide between a pilot and odyssey and Howdy Honda has both ready to look at and test drive. Edward was super helpful and there was no pressure. We have decided on the Odyssey and will definitely purchase from Howdy Honda again! We've bought 5 vehicles from them and they keep getting better and better. Howdy Honda gets it done!

I have previously bought Honda Passport/ Pilot/Accord and have never had this experience. It was very pleasant even though I had done my research and knew what I wanted. Prior Honda purchases have been very stressful. I will buy my next vehicle by going thru CarPro dealer. Nik was extremely considerate, helpful, patient, help in setting personalize my 2019 vehicle prior to leaving the lot. Nik went out of his way to make sure I was comfortable with my purchase and what I wanted. No pressure in purchasing the vehicle. I went to Howdy Honda from Central Texas area. Howdy Honda is a very friendly and pleasant dealership whether you are purchasing or servicing your vehicle. I would highly recommend Howdy Honda to other potential customers buyers seeking a new vehicle!

The dealership reached out to me immediately. Even though I didn't go in person, Mr. Villa was very helpful in explaining my options over the phone. Turns out it is better to wait a little bit before purchasing the CR-V I really want. I will definitely look up Mr. Villa when I'm ready to trade in my current vehicle. Thank you so much.

Mike eliminated the dealer markup and gave us a price under his invoice on a Honda CRV 2018. He met my number on the first offering.

We traded a Dodge Journey for a 2015 CRV. We were upside down at the time, but they made the financing work, coming in at my $500 monthly payment. Brad Plauche,' consummate pro and 20+ year Howdy veteran, worked with then-mgr Thano to make it all happen. Best of all, they made a believer out of Wanda. When I've called Brad or stopped in, Brad remembered me. Incredible! That was three years ago, and the CRV has just been SIMONIZED and looks almost as good as new. Mileage flirts with 30 mpg. Whenever we pass HH on 71 going into Austin, we wave. The Car Pro protocol here shows why Jerry has been so successful for 17 years with this program. Can't wait to pay off this note to be able to buy another Honda here. There simply is no other way to do business to guarantee buyer satisfaction. You may use any or all of this review.

Fair price, no haggling, no high pressure to buy extended warranty or other addons, no runs to the manager for permission to do this or that.

I contacted Howdy Honda through the Carpro VIP form. Within minutes I had received a couple emails and a phone call from Edward Kwak. I headed down to the dealership. Edward was absolutely great to work with. He was professional and knowledgeable about the vehicle we were looking at. Our growing family was looking at an Odyssey. I was immediately given a great price on the vehicle, no back and forth. I had a vehicle to trade in and the first offer was a bit low from what I was hoping. Very easlily Edward worked to get the trade in value I wanted. I would recommend this dealership to anyone in the market for a Honda. We are very happy with our 2019 Honda Odyssey. Thanks Jerry for taking care of us, again, and thanks to Howdy Honda for the wonderful car buying experience.

Living in College Station, I priced the local dealer as well as Car Pro dealers in Austin, Houston, the Metroplex, and San Antonio. Equaling the best price quoted, and by far being the most polite dealership was Howdy Honda. Justin Fuller handled our purchase for Ron Victorino. He was fair, pleasant, and knowledgeable about the 2018 CR-V Touring AWD we purchased. He showed us every feature and even paired our phones and pre-set our radio stations. Even when the sales staff is first rate, you usually have to run the gauntlet when dealing with the finance officer. This was not at all the case with Howdy Honda. In a nutshell, I would describe this as the most enjoyable process of buying an Automobile I have ever experienced. At 65, I have purchased quite a few. I would rate Howdy Honda six star if I could.

Thank you, thank you for our Car Pro Certificate for Howdy Honda. We really were treated like VIPs. My husband would rather go to the dentist than deal with a car salesman, but Ted Schweitzer and the whole dealership made this a painless experience. Even Chris Hobbick in Finance was a pleasure to deal with. We have bought 15 or more vehicles, but this was the easiest and fastest transaction. Ted called us and made an appointment and greeted us warmly and treated us like VIPs. We always know the vehicle we want and he confirmed over the phone it was available and it was outside the showroom when we arrived. True to his word it was the exact vehicle we told him about on the phone. After a very short discussion on price, a deal was made and we were very pleased with the outcome. So pleased we have a 2018 Honda Odyssey Elite and we love it. We never thought we would say buying a vehicle could be enjoyable, but Ted and Honda Howdy made it that kind of experience. We certainly will recommend them (and Car Pro) to our friends and family. Thank you. James & Mary San Antonio Texas
