Jade G. was extremely helpful and friendly and worked with me to help me find a car that met my needs and budget. All of the staff was friendly, upfront, and not pushy.

- Shannon Mattila, Google

The whole staff was wonderful from start to finish, especially our salesman Mark Larson. Mark even took the time to help us set up and explain the tech features on our new RAV4. I would highly recommend Kolar Toyota to friends and family!

- Michele Shirley, Google

I bought a vehicle from them today. They are very professional and I would recommend them to anyone. The guy that helped me, Ted P. was everything I could ask for for helping me out.

My experience with Kolar Toyota was excellent, from the start with Nicole, to the final sale with Mark, and with all the wonderful, very friendly, happy, helpful staff in between. I am proud to be part of the Kolar family.
