The Best Experience I Could Have Hoped For
I live quite a distance from Wantagh. Three of the icons on my dashboard lit up. I called on a Mondayto make an appointment. I was told the earliest appt. was for Wednesday. I told the person that I hadfriends available that day only that would be able to follow me in their car, in case my car brokedown. I asked that they fix it at their earliest convenience.Much to my surprise and delight they called that day, late afternoon to tell me that my car wasready for pick up. It was fully repaired!The Service Department is great, fabulous, the best!
I've gotten my last three cars from Phil at Wantagh Mazda. What a pleasure. None of the sleazy car dealer nonsense. Just straight up helpful and friendly staff. I come all the way from Queens and it is always worth the trip!
By Far The best Dealership in Long Island . Honest , reliable , dependable. This is my second lease there and the experience both times has been Flawless.
Another great car buying experience at Wantagh Mazda
Victor found the car we needed for our daughter. Best safety rating, Great styling and affordable pricing This is our 5th Mazda from Victor and we have recommended 2 others for a total of 7Great People, Great Cars - Truly the BEST car buying experience !
Friendly, helpful service
I brought my CX9 for some basic service and a problem. They had me out of there in an hour. Unfortunately several parts had to be ordered. I returned the next week. They were not able to fix the car quickly. I was offered a loaner. This worked out well for me as I had to pick up my husband a few hours later.My auto was finished at 3:30 PM. I picked my car up at 4:00PM.Everyone in the service department was courteous and helpful.
I did not believe that honest dealership even exist, until we visited a Wantagh Mazda. So great, fast, honest, polite, stress less service I could not imagine. thank you, Joe Bonavita for such a pleasant experience.
I first met Phil in November 2005 when we purchased our first Mazda. It was the newly re-designed MX-5 Miata. We were Honda people for many years, but Phil convinced us otherwise. We had the car until October 2012, when it was destroyed by Super Storm Sandy. My Honda Pilot was destroyed also. Suddenly, we were in the market for two new cars. We purchased a new Miata and leased a CX-9. Phil could not have made the process more smoothly, especially since we were still reeling from the devastation of the storm. I recently had to return the leased CX-9. I loved the car so much, I decided to purchased a new CX-9 and have no regrets. Four deals in 11 years speaks of our loyalty to Phil and Wantagh Mazda.I also had the pleasure of meeting Charlie when I picked up the new CX-9. Charlie was friendly, helpful, and extremely thorough with his explanation of the car and offered to help me further in the future if I needed it. I will certainly take him up on the offer!In closing, if you are looking for a Mazda and want an excellent experience, go to Wantagh Mazda and I highly recommend scoping out Phil and Charlie.Happy Thanksgiving!!
Could not be happier!
My husband and I wanted to buy a car together but our busy schedules make this difficult. Wantagh Mazda did everything possible to help us both get what we wanted, and did so very efficiently and hassle free. I loved that I got to test drive the car on my own. My salesman was always helpful and easy to reach. It helps that they are selling awesome cars as well. My family and I are loving our new CX-9.
Wantagh Mazda is the Disneyland of Dealerships!
I have truly never had an experience that compares to the one I had at Wantagh Mazda. I could not ask for a more personable, stressless, and enjoyable car buying adventure. Victor Lantonio was by far the best salesman I have ever had the pleasure of working with. He gave me the best deal on the Mazda CX-5 and I am so grateful for his patience and dedication in finding me the car and add-ons that I wanted for a price that was reasonable for me. THANK YOU WANTAGH MAZDA! I'M OBSESSED WITH MY CAR!
I'm a believer ....
Everyone at Wantagh Mazda made my visit a great one from the moment we walked in to driving out with a new CX-5! The process went quick and easy. Their professionalism and courtesy have changed my opinion of car dealerships. Thank you!
Excellent Experience - Picking Out A New Car - Wantagh Mazda
The team at Wantagh Mazda was friendly, helpful, and really made the experience enjoyable. I am very happy with my new 2017 Mazda 3 Grand Touring and all of it's features and the way it rides and feels. Josh was a terrific salesman and I highly recommend you go see him, and the rest of the team at Wantagh Mazda. I appreciate the time Josh spent with me going over all of the features of my new car.
Once Again Mazda Of Wantagh Came Through!
Recently I had an Emergency where I needed to Lease another Vehicle from Wantagh Of Mazda. Not even 2 weeks ago I leased my first vehicle from them, the expereince was unbelivable compared to my prior experiences with Toyota, customer service was great, efficent, quick and to the point, no B.S and trying to sell you any extras.I returned to Mazda of Wantgh on Saturday to get some asssitance with leasing another vehicle due to a family emergency, I was in the door by 9:30AM, out the door by 10:30AM with my approval and car picked out, returned at 1:30PM to sign my Paperwork and drive my new Vehicle out.Kudos to all the staff at Mazda Of Wantagh, they are all great and curtious and understanding, its great when a family owned busineess can associate with the common family needs.I would like to throw out a special Thank You to Victor Liantonio and Kenny Davis, they were both great the first time, but the second time was even better, THANK YOU GUYS for everyting and understanding our needs.May all the staff at Wantagh Mazda have a blessed and Safe Holiday Season, you will definetly see me back when its time to re-up my leases, and anybody reading this review dont think twice about visiing Wantagh Mazda, once your their you will definetly understand what a great experince it is.
Extremely happy about my new lease on a titanium grand touring CX5 at Wantagh Mazda. It drives like a dream and has everything I wanted and more! Got a great deal with no pressure. Wish all my leases were like this one!
Quick and easy
I had the best experience with the guys at mazda. Charlie made buying a car so easy and painless. Couldn't thank everyone who helped in the process enough.
Curtious, Fast And Easy
After dealing with Mazda of Wantagh will never go back to Toyota again, experience was great, staff was too the point, quick, curtious. Victor and Kenneth were a pleasure to work with.Mazda puts Toyota to shame, all the Extras Mazdas gives as a basic package either Toyota does not carry or they charge extra for.I found a new home in Mazda of Wantagh and will use them going foward as long as I can.
What a pleasure it was to do business with such professionals. That is why I returned to purchase my second vehicle from Wantagh Mazda, and why I will probably do so in the future.
Truly a pleasure
A 2017 Mazda 6 is the third Mazda we leased from Wantagh Mazda. Our salesman is Victor Liantonio. He is the reason we keep coming back to Mazda. We could have leased a Honda Accord for slightly less money but it is truly a pleasure dealing with someone as nice as Victor. I don't think anyone in the right mind relishes the car buying experience but Victor makes it as painless as possible. I would recommend Victor to anyone who is looking for a fair deal. He's a real professional and a real gentleman.
Turned a bad car shopping experience in to a great one!!
I started shopping for cars like 3 weeks ago going from dealer to dealer and hating all my interactions with the sales people. They were all pushy and at some points rude! When I arrived at Wantagh Mazda I looked around and then a salesman (Josh Pena) came over and asked if I needed help. He then sat me down and listened to everything I was looking for and helped me explore options like pre owned vs new. He then took me to see one of each and while looking talked through everything like cost, features, warranty, and even colors! Then the test drive was unlike any one I have taken before cause you go alone to have a more "intimate" experience. It was great to not have the pressure of a stranger in the car with you judging your driving. I had a lot of questions and Josh was very patient and answered all my questions and more. It took me 3 visits before I committed cause I was so nervous it was my first new car. He made sure the process was easy and that I understood everything! It was the best costumer service I have had in a very long time!! If you need a car this is the place to go and be sure to ask for Josh he is fantastic but the rest of the staff is just as great!! Can't go wrong!!
Joeseph Bonavita was very helpful and great to work with. He was very knowledgeable as well. Overall we were very happy with everything and appreciate all of the help.
I have purchased 3 vehicles and my family total has purchased 8. David and Teddy are true professionals and understanding of your needs. Thank You
We visited this dealership because our son had such a great experience purchasing a Mazda 3 at a great price from Victor. We had leased from Toyota for years, but decided to look into a Mazda CX-5. We were very impressed with Victor and Phil at the dealership, who were both honest and friendly. They made the experience easy and stress-free, as well as giving us a great deal. We will definitely be returning to Wantagh Mazda and highly recommended them to anyone looking for a car.
Amazing first time buying experience
This was without a doubt the best place to have purchased a new car, Josh was thorough and definitely did amazing in giving me the best deal. Very patient in working with my budget, I could have not asked for a better experience!
The best around
I bought my car brand new from Wantagh Mazda over three years ago. The sales team was kind and helpful, and they did not try in any way to upsell me or force me into using their financing. It's nice to work with a dealership and not feel like you're getting the run-around. They had my car ready two days later with plates and registration all set up for me. Truly top-notch. As for their service it is just as superb. Their prices are reasonable, they are honest with their work, and they are very knowledgeable about the vehicles they service. They performed software updates to my car even at 90k+ miles at no charge. It's things like this that keep me coming back to Wantagh Mazda for service rather than going to a quick lube place or a different Mazda dealership. Wantagh's attention to detail and respect for their customers is second to none. I couldn't recommend a better group of people.
No Hassle Stress Free Shopping
I went to Wantagh Mazda with my daughter last year because it is a family run business. She got the car she wanted at a great price with no hassles. So it was a no brainer to return to the dealership when I wanted a car this year! I worked with Josh (and Phil) and it was a no hassle stress free and pleasant experience. Josh is knowledgeable and was able to answer all my questions. He treated me with respect and when it came to the price I got a price that was the price - NO let's start high and see what she'll pay - the way so many car dealers do. When I picked up the car Josh went over everything with me and spent as much time as I needed. I got the car I wanted, a Mazda 3, in the color I wanted, at a price I wanted. And, by the way, I live in Brooklyn and can tell you that it is well worth the trip to go to Wantagh Mazda!
Great stress-free experience
I bought Mazda 3 hatchback this past weekend and talked with Dave and Phil. They were both great! Phil negotiated a great deal with me, and they both treated me with respect and consideration. I did my homework so I know that I got a very good deal. Highly recommended.
New 2016.5 Mazda CX 5 I grand Touring
I had a great experience at Mazda, when I walked in my husband and I met Victor and we liked him right away. He wasn't pushy he let me look at the car I told him why I wanted a Mazda and he let me drive one right away. This man is so sweet and kind and funny and great to talk to. He was like family. And I love my new car!!!
Mazda 6 - Great buying expierence at Wantagh Mazda!
I have leased & purchased many cars From Audi to Mercedes & I have to say these guys are top notch here- they made turning in my MB lease & purchasing a car thru their group a breeze.... Josh Pena is a pro & took care of everything was the easiest experience Iv e had at a dealership to date. The sales manager Phillip was also very friendly & accommodating. This is a family run business auto dealership I highly recommend these guys don't judge a book by its cover these guys are the real deal & no-nonsense thanks again!
Very happy with the service. Jorge was friendly and a pleasure to deal with. No hard sales pitch. Would recommend to anyone looking for a Mazda
Great car buying experience!
Stress-free experience purchasing a car at Wantagh Mazda. The sales staff was extremely courteous and helpful. Paperwork was handled with care and everything went so smoothly. No pressure and no hassles at all! This team really puts the customer first and strives to make things as easy as possible. Without question I would reccommend this dealer to friends and family.Thank you to Charlie and Phil for helping me find the perfect car. Love my CX5!Susann
I went to Wantagh Mazda with my elderly dad to help him purchase a car. Our sales Consultant Victor Liantonio was friendly, amazingly helpful and very patient. Also sales manager Joe Steller was very helpful throughout the entire process . I highly recommend using Victor Liantonio at Wantagh Mazda if you are looking to purchase a car and with no pressure and hassles and get a great & fair price.
EASIEST PURCHASE EVER!!!
I HAVE PURCHASED THREE VEHICLES FROM VICTOR AND IT JUST GETS EASIER AND EASIER. I WAS IN AND OUT OF THE DEALERSHIP WITH IN 30 MINUTES AND PURCHASED A 2016 MAZDA 3 FOR MY TWINS. VICTOR MAD IT POSSIBLE FOR ME TO SURPRISE THEM FOR THEIR BIRTHDAY BY HAVING THE CAR READY TO GO WITH IN 24 HOURS OF THE PURCHASE. HE IS AN AMAZING SALESMAN AND VERY SWEET MAN TO WORK WITH. LAURA P.
Victor and Phil are AWESOME
I visited Wantagh Mazda for a 2016 mazda 6 lease with tech package. After a couple visits of learning more about the car and prices i was very excited to get the car. Unfortunately they couldnt find one in the area for me so i was getting nervous. But Victor and Phil kept looking every day for me and finally found the car i wanted. They were both VERY personable and down to earth. there was no b.s. like other dealerships out there and gave me all info straight up. I look forward to being with wantagh mazda for this lease and other leases to come. Definitely recommend them.
Thank you Phil Puleo!!
I would recommend Wantaugh Mazda to anyone looking for a new car! We worked with Phil and he was very professional and got everything done for us. He was friendly and responsive to all of our questions. The whole process was smooth and we will definitely come back!
Great Dealership with Great Deals!
My first lease experience went over extremely smoothly with Josh Pena. He was extremely helpful and did his best to give me the most affordable deal I could hope for. Everyone was very polite and there was very little pressure. I look forward to going back to buyout the vehicle after the lease runs out!
Victor Liantonio was amazing!!!
Victor Liantonio did an amazing job helping me get a car. He was extremely helpful, knowledgable and friendly. He made my visit a memorable one and I will definitely refer him to my friends and family!!! I love Wantagh Mazda!!!!
Our second lease experience from Wantagh Mazda was just as god as the first! Absolutely zero pressure, they just want to help you find the best car for you. Victor is a down to earth friendly salesman, who has become a good friend to my wife and I. We have referred many family and friends there already. As long as Mazda keeps producing quality vehicles, there is no other dealership I will go to besides Wantagh Mazda, and no other salesperson I will go to besides Victor...see you in 3 years!
Honest dealership that puts its customers first. One of the few places that does not pressure you into buying a car. Very informative and helpful. Highly recommended.
Our experience with Wantagh Mazda was perfect. Joe Bonavita was professional, super well-informed, and did a great job managing our expectations and questions. Additionally, the financing process was smooth and painless, with absolutely no "last-minute" surprises. Highly recommend this dealership and working with Joe!
I purchased my car a Wantagh Mazda and found it to be a most pleasant experience. The salesman was very informative and easy to talk to. He was very helpful.
Mazda- Dave and Joe
I was greeted at the door by Dave and his wonderful english accent. He was a pleasure to deal with from the moment i arrived at Wantagh Mazda.. I knew that i wanted the CX-5 and Dave was beyond knowledgeable about the car and went into great detail about the benefits of the car. I wanted Black with a black interior and Dave was more then helpful in getting me what my initial pick was. He also suggest I take a look at the sand interior and i'm SO glad he made that suggestion because i absolutely loved it and wound up picking that car over the black on black. Not only was David a wonderful help but so was Joe in the front. He made the transition of my trade in flawless. I was happy to learn that these two men were both employees at this location for quite some time and it shows consumers they back what they are selling. The family owned business at this location was a driving point in picking Wantagh over other Mazda locations. If you are thinking of a Mazda, please go to Wantagh, the staff was so helpful even on a friday night when everyone just wants the weekend to happen. Thank you again Dave and Joe, you both were so helpful and made the stressful job of buying a car, stress free. :)
Was really happy with my salesman. Victor didn't push anything extra and was not out to sell me the car that day, which I truly appreciated. When I finally did make the purchase, I was able to meet some of the other salesman and all of them were friendly and helpful. It is a small place, but they had everything I wanted and it felt very family oriented. Definitely recommend this place and Victor.
Young BUYERS! Pick this guy!
Young BUYERS! Pick this guy! He has that fatherly like vibe and will tell you what is needed and what is not needed. You just need to tell him what are your wants and he will give you a deal that no other Mazda Dealer will do to you. Reason, he will understand what type of expenses you are currently dealing with and he will met you in the middle OR even to your expectations. Expenses like, COLLEGE DEBT (Struggle IS REAL) that are killing you because you went to Ivy-League for a medical degree or engineering degree. I just graduated undergrad and told him the amount of expenses I pay monthly and on top of that the amount of rent i have to pay. He understands and he will do what he can to meet your requirements. I recommend this guy and I recommend CX3 Because it is DOPE. :) -RE
Friendly, informative. Easy to work with.
This was my 2nd time buying/leasing with this dealership. The sales people are not overly pushy and I felt at ease viewing the models and making my decision. As I am not very used to the car purchasing experience, I felt comfortable asking all of my questions and everything was answered carefully and honestly. I did some research before trading in my previous vehicle and found that their offer was in line with my expectations.
Family Oriented that helps out best they can.
Victor and the guys at Wantagh Mazda took extremely good care of me from the moment I called in the morning inquiring about a car to that afternoon when I left a deposit. They did everything they could to accommodate what I was asking for and more. Will be recommending anyone looking for a Mazda to go see them.
I just leased my first Mazda and the process could not have been more seamless without Victor! Down to earth and a genuinely nice guy, he helped me get the exact car I wanted (and more) at a great deal. I've already recommended the dealership and Victor to my friend, and would to anybody else looking for a Mazda! Thanks again!!
Like you are dealing with family
I cannot say enough good things about this place. We have been customers of theirs for 14 years and just leased our 3rd car from them. Victor has been our sales rep fir the past two deals and I cannot say enough good things about him. He treats us like we are part of his family or old friends every time we see him. He is so easy to talk to, so down to earth and will take away any negative you have against car salesmen. He tries to get you the best deal possible and make you happy any way he can. The dealership itself is full of nice people who offer you donuts and coffee and even lunch one day when we came by including wraps, pasta salad etc. my two kids ran around the place jumping in and out of cars and not only did they never appear to be slightly annoyed by them, they would engage them and play around with them while they were there. Not to mention the car we got is also fantastic. Look no further for your next car and do yourself a favor and visit victor at wantagh Mazda. I promise you will not regret it!
Pleasant, informative, not pushy
Victor is a knowledgeable salesman. He answered all of my questions and was easy to work with. Phil was also very easy to talk to and work with. This is my first Mazda and the overall experience with this dealership was quite positive.
Good experience recommend
Leased my first Mazda based on good experience recommendation from a friend both with Mazda as a car & Wantagh Mazda dealershipStaff was helpful specially Victor L was very helpful in making leasing experience with Wantagh Madza a breeze - Thanks
The Mazda Family
This is our tenth Mazda! The Wantagh dealership does not disappoint. They take care of us as if we were family.... and, in fact, we do feel a part of the "Wantagh Mazda Family!" Phil and Kenny make sure every detail is covered. For the first time, we had the pleasure of dealing with Joe and we are glad to welcome him to our Mazda circle. Thank you so much for the smooth rides.
pleasant and helpful
my 4th mazda from this dealership and have always been pleased with sales and service. the sales staff will go out of their way to be helpful and always with a smile. the service department is well run and its staff are very knowledgeable. Rich and Diane
Best Car-Buying Experience Ever
I came in with my old leased car and left with my new one in a very short period of time. Phil and Jorge had everything taken care of for me by the time I got there. The entire experience was a pleasure!
I had a intermittent problem with my rear hatch lock. i had to go to the dealer a few times, due to problem did not always happen. Finally the techs were able to diagnose problem and fixed it under warranty. even though i had now driven above 36k. i now trust them with my car and have them do my service work.
VICTOR IS THE MAN!! RUN, DON"T WALK, TO BUY A CAR FROM HIM..
Victor is a godsend among sales professionals. He recently helped my girlfriend, her father, and me purchase a brand new 2016 CX-9. This was the most hassle-free, stress-free, gimmick-free car buying experience i've ever had. Victor gave me a straightforward price over the phone. We showed up the next day and signed the paperwork almost immediately. There were no games. No bait and switch. No surprises. Victor, Phil, and the rest of the Wantagh Mazda crew are real, respectable, and honest folk. I've purchased Toyotas, Hondas, Acuras, Audis, and BMWs. Let me tell you, this Mazda purchase experience was by far the BEST. Call the dealer and ask for Victor. HE WILL TAKE CARE OF YOU LIKE YOU ARE FAMILY. Best Regards, James.
Quick, Easy and fair
This is a very fair dealer trying to give you the best price without haggling. They are very knowledgable of their product and all the salesmen and managers are very nice. this was actually the 4th Mazda we have gotten from this dealer.
My wife and I leased a new CX-5 from here. We were helped by David Chiari. He was very helpful and pleasant to work with. The entire process from start to finish was easy and painless. We ended up getting a great deal on the exact car we wanted. David was interested in what we wanted and was not the typical pushy or agressive dealer. Overall our experience was nothing short of great.
I was leasing a car for my son who's a full time college student and I found this experience with David actually a pleasurable one. No pressure, no games, no hassles. I've had some bad experiences in the past and therefore I'm very skeptical, but with David I felt very comfortable. I can't wait until my Nissan lease is up so I can get myself a nice little Mazda.
Went in looking for a good-looking, well-functioning, inexpensive vehicle - and that's what David Chiari helped me to do! I went to a few car dealerships before this, and they were all unpleasant experiences. Almost immediately after stepping into Wantagh Mazda, I was sure that I wanted to purchase one of their vehicles; after a few days of test-driving, David helped me come to the conclusion that the 2016 Mazda3i GT was the car for me. Overall it was a simple and fun process.
It doesn't get better than Wantagh Mazda!
Wantagh Mazda, we can't thank you enough for all your help with our new CX-9. We love the car, and couldn't be more pleased with the buying experience at your dealership. Jonathan on the sales team was a professional from start to finish. He took his time, and was an absolute pleasure to work with. But Phil the sales manager was the real anomaly. We needed a little extra help because of timing with our lease-end on our previous CX-5 and the impending birth of our 2nd child. Phil treated us like family. He went above and beyond, making a stressful situation 100% stress free. His primary concern was making sure everything worked out perfectly for us. And like you read in many of the reviews on this dealership, we had no pressure and no haggling just fair pricing right out of the gate. Phil, we really can't thank you enough for everything. Your honesty, compassion, and professionalism is unlike anything we've seen at a car dealership before. We're not buying another car again unless Phil is inking the deal. Great job by all at Wantagh Mazda!
David Peter Chiari is the best salesman. He can sell ice to penguin. He explain everything to me very clear and so I was able to understand. Gentleman is the best way to describe him. He should be instantly promoted to Mr Mazda. And he should also get a 1000% raise. I hope he sees this and he knows that me and my fiance are very happy with our experience at wantagh Mazda. And also remind him to watch out for clean glass it could be any where
Easy painless experience
I can't say enough how great Victor Liantonio was he made the entire process of getting my new car easy and painless. I would highly recommend Wantagh Mazda for anyone in the market for a new car.
I traded in my car with Mazda and they were very generous. David took care of everything for me, I did the bare minimum. He was such a pleasure to work with and helped me feel very comfortable with my new purchase. Thank you! I will definitely be using them in the future :)
Great buying experience
Best place to buy a Mazda. Good people, Fair dealing. Have the cars, Great experience. Have purchased two new cars from Victor L and will go back for a third next year.
Amazing sales help
Buying at this dealership was so easy and worry free. Came in on a Tuesday and was in my new CX-5 on Friday. Very supportive sales staff. Will definitely come back.
Most Pleasant Experience Buying a Car
I did a lot of online research and made several inquiries for different brands, not just Mazda. I did not want a sales pitch, I wanted answers to questions by email. Everyone else wanted to get me on the phone, which I did not have time for during the weekday. Joseph Bonavita was one of only two people who responded with actual answers, without hassle. The answers were so complete, I didn't bother to call, I just scheduled an appointment and my spouse and I went to look at the cars. Joe's no rush demeanor, accommodating style and well explained financing (all the better with Mazda's wonderful 0%) is what convinced us. The only uncertainty we had at that point was which color to Choose~ Even to the end, when we picked up the car, we sat in there while he explained how to use all the features, which was a first for me. Thank you for making the purchasing experience so easy and pleasant. As long as we drive Mazdas, I will certainly be calling on Joe and will be recommending him to anyone who is in the market. Thank you!
Already cannot wait to go back
The environment was very friendly and no pressure. The staff was curtious and attentive, even without a test drive appointment. I don't get a lot of holidays at my job, so I appreciate that Wantagh Mazda closes on holidays so their employees get to spend time with their families. Victor and Phil made us feel like family.Wantagh Mazda! Wantagh Mazda! Wantagh Mazda!
Smooth, and no pressure!
Just wanted to say thank you to Joe Bonavita for the most pleasant new car buying experience. Joe B. It was a pleasure buying a car from Wantagh Mazda, and you Joe made the difference. Absolutely no pressure from you which I loved! We love the CX5 and kudos to Joe Bonsvita, ty Joe nice job, just gained a customer for life!
I Bought the Mazda cx5 and love it.
Awesome experience. Victor was extremely helpful and made the process so easy. Everything was smooth from the beggining until to the end. I would recommend this dealership.
We had a very smooth buying experience at Wantagh Mazda. Dealt with salesperson Jorge Ortiz and manager Phil. Very surprised that it was not your typical dealership experience. Excellent service and provided the car within the time frame promised. I recommend this dealership.
Exceptional experience - honesty, integrity, great price!
We had a fantastic and unique (in a very positive way) buying experience working with Joe Bonavita at Wantagh Mazda. We have been so happy with our 2 Mazda CX-5s (originally traded out of BMWs to Mazda) that we went shopping for a 3rd Mazda. We read great things about Wantagh Mazda's family owned business approach to selling cars, and decided to stop in for a look. The location is very convenient - right off of the Wantagh Parkway on Sunrise Highway. Upon entering the showroom, Joe Bonavita greeted us immediately with a friendly smile. Despite the ruckus that we brought with us into the dealership (i.e. 4 kids ranging from ages 2 to 4), Joe was extremely patient, helpful, professional, and knowledgeable in explaining the available vehicles and incentive programs. In stark contrast to the high pressure, game filled sales approach that is so common at other car dealerships, our experience with Joe and Wantagh Mazda was very pleasant, and relaxed with ZERO sales pressure. Joe presented to us a very straightforward and very attractive lease deal for a new CX-5. When we asked if there was any additional wiggle room in the quote, Joe assured us that he and his manager always seek to present their customers with the best deal possible off the bat to earn their business, rather than waste time via a let me ask my manager back and forth sales approach. He asked us to take as much time as we needed to think about the deal, and even gave us a written detailed quote that we could review and compare with other dealers. Joe let us leave the dealership without any hassle or trouble, with the written deal in hand. To our surprise, in the days following our visit to the showroom, we were not harassed by any bus dev or inside salespeople trying to pressure us to return. In addition, after sanity checking Joe's deal vs. several other dealers, we learned that we were, indeed, being given a fantastic deal (other dealers even said - "take the deal, and get me one too"). We happily returned to Wantagh Mazda where Joe and his manager honored the written deal in its entirety, with no questions asked, no bait and switch nonsense / surprises, and no attempts to upsell us on services / parts / warranties that we did not want. In summary, the combination of an amazing deal along with the honesty, straightforwardness, and integrity of Joe and his team made us very happy customers. We look forward to returning to Wantagh Mazda for our future vehicle needs. We would highly recommend that anyone in the market for a Mazda visit Wantagh Mazda and ask for Joe Bonavita.
My 3rd Mazda from this dealership
Thinking about a Mazda? Think no more and get to Wantagh Mazda. I'm on my third lease through Wantagh Mazda and each time Victor Liantonio made the process painless. He truly makes leasing or purchasing a car a pleasure! No pressure, no fuss, just outstanding customer service to ensure you are comfortable throughout the entire process.
Leasing 2016 Mazda 3 Hatchback
I've dealt with other Mazda dealerships in the past and Wantagh Mazda by far was the easiest to deal with. I knew what I wanted going in and was pleasantly surprised to see how helpful the staff was. The owner of the facility made a point of saying hello and thanking me for my business. To me, having a family owned and operated facility is important because they want to know how everything is run. Victor was easy to do business with, not pushy and very helpful. My wife's lease is due in a few months and I know exactly where I'm going!
We had already decided on a Mazda for my sons first car! Unfortunately we were not thrilled with the First Mazda Dealership we went to!! My daughter decided to come to Wantagh because she heard great thing about them!! They lived up to their reputation!! Our salesman was Charles and I would highly recommend him!!! I also spoke with Phil and Kenny who were both very helpful!!! They helped make my sons first brand new car an amazing experience and I can't thank them enough!!!
Joe, Phil & Kenny were great. Thy made us feel extremely comfortable throughout the process. We'd definitely recommend them to friends & family in the market for a new car.
We love David!
David is a great salesman. This is my third lease with Wantagh Mazda and David is always a pleasure to work with! I am loving my CX-5!
David advocated for us knowing that we had a budget and a time constraint. We were able to take the vehicle that day. Although, it did take a few hours for the car to be ready, he kept us updated and accommodated us.
Great Buying Experience at Wantagh Mazda
Our salesperson, Joe Bonavita, made our purchase experience very pleasant. He didn't put any pressure at all on us. He was honest, trustworthy, fair and thorough. Couldn't be more pleased with the entire experience and the car.
Best experience again and again
My family has been coming to this dealership and worked with Victor L for the last 2 Mazdas we leased. And so, to lease my first Mazda we naturally came back. Victor L has always been great with my folks. He welcomed my folks back and patiently let us view the new models. After sitting in a Mazda 3 in the showroom Victor suggested for us to test drive one. We got to experience the car and all its neat features on the Wantagh Parkway. When it came time to settle on the new lease, Victor was on top of all the paperwork. He was upfront with all the costs and even went out of his way to make sure I have all the papers I need to close on my old lease. I got the car and picked it up four days later. Great experience and will go back again for my next Mazda!
Victor L made my car buying experience a pleasure. He remembered that I wanted a manual transmission and when we went in to test drive he immediately said "I have your car" He took us to a certified preowned mazda which I bought. Thanks Victor
Best price and very professional. Honest and upfront from start to finish which is rare in my experiences. Thanks for my new Mazda and I will be back for my next car!
Joe Bonavita was very knowledgeable and professional. Love, love, love our new CX-5. He knows the vehicle inside and out and could not have been more helpful.
Wantagh Mazda was nothing but a pleasure to work with. Joe B and his team are great! There is no one hassling you, they want you to feel comfortable. No pressure! Would highly recommend.
I had a Mazda 6 rental for two weeks and I feel in love with it. My husband and I went to visit Wantagh Mazda and a very nice gentleman Jonathan lakritz gave us a tour of the different models and features. We fell in love with the CX5 I touring and in less than 24 hours it was ours. One of the things that I noticed about this particular dealership was the fact that the sales persons do not try to sell you anything extra that ultimately you may never even use. I was surprise at that because I have been dealing with many sales persons and that is one of the first things you find them doing. Jonathan was just amazing and I hope he enjoys his two days off.
I am referred to David by my future in-law Mike to by this CX-15 2016 which is a great car with 'great modern package and decent price, we tested drive it and bought it. David is professional, courteous, and friendly.
Best Car Dealer/Service Center Ever!
We've been a Wantagh Mazda customer since 2013 when we purchased 2 cars from Wantagh Mazda within 2 months. We've always had these cars serviced at Wantagh Mazda and the work performed has always been excellent. When we were in the market for another Mazda, there was no question which dealership we would visit.When looking at other brands, it seems that the other dealers are trying to get the most out of you but at Wantagh Mazda, they want to get you the best deal, right from the start of the process.We just took delivery of our 3rd Mazda from Wantagh Mazda and although there was a little miscommunication, Wantagh Mazda went the distance and made sure that we were a satisfied customer.If you're looking for a very satisfying car buying/leasing experience, Wantagh Mazda is the place to go.
I remember the commercials from my youth. I was a Chevrolet/Ford owner since Chevy closed I was left with ford.Since I dont like to travel to service my vehicles I wanted a nearby dealership I live in Seaford. The class vehicle I was looking for; Ford had their tin can version the EscapeJeep and Dodge just cheap.I am no stranger to buying cars. From the first greeting to the salesman listen to my needs made the entire process a joy.Kenny involvement finished the process to the greatest car buying experience.The solid feel and pleasurable ride winter, spring, summer and fall of my Cx-5 is always serviced to my expectations by Jim and Gary; they listens to my needs and the team of mechanics who go above and beyond to keeping my Cx-5 fit.I am on my second Cx-5 cant wait to my third !!!!!!!I recommend Mazda and Kenny to all so they too canZoom ZoomPhil
Best dealership. Honest and Friendly.
Most dealerships I've been to employ vultures, Wantagh Mazda is different. I went here on a Friday after work. I got there around 6:30pm. I went there with an attorney because 1 she's my friend, 2 because I don't know how to negotiate. We were greeted by Jonathan. Very welcoming and friendly. He let us test drive the car on our own. We went on the "scenic" test drive on on Wantagh parkway down to the roundabout and all that where I was really able to get a feel for the car.So anyways, after the test drive there was very little negotiations. And that's because they are different than other dealerships. I felt like it only took 5 minutes from when we came back from test driving to coming to an agreement. They gave me an honest, bottom dollar offer that even my attorney friend was shocked about. It was a great deal.Now I drive a great, brand new car and it doesn't even break bank.
Honest and friendly
I was in the market for a Mazda and had gone to my local dealer in Queens that did not a good experience. I even came close to changing my mind and going with another make but I decided to give another Mazda dealer a shot.I walked in about an hour before they closed and was greeted by Jonathan who was friendly and patient. I've walked in to other dealers close to closing time and have been ignored but I felt very welcomed here. I got set up for a road test and was given permission to go alone or to be accompanied. I was taken on the highway where I got a chance to really feel the car. We came back and discussed numbers. They were very willing to meet me around my budget and worked hard to give me every possible discount they could.I want to thank everyone at Wantagh Mazda , Jonathan , Phillip and Kenny for making my first lease experience a great one. I highly recommended you to come visit them.
WOW !!! A critique from a career salesperson....
This will be a long review so let me say at the top that leasing from the guys at Wantagh Mazda was the most pleasant car buying experience I have ever had !!! Jonathan, Phil and Kenny I thank you. I was driving a 2001 Toyota with 135,000 miles on it, it looked like xxxx but I avoided replacing it because I dreaded the "car buying game". My neighbor told me about his wonderful experience at Wantagh Mazda. As a guy with over 40 years of sales experience I was still skeptical!I take the plunge and walk into Wantagh Mazda. I am greeted by Jonathan Lakritz. We talk, I tell him what I want. He is very well informed and has a nice way about himself. He informs me of all the specs and options. I make my selection, a Mazda 3. I tense up figuring now the battle royale begins.Jonathan and Phil Puleo go over the numbers and present me a price. Everything I asked for is included and the price is within 3% of what I expected. Amazing. Where is the catch? While Jonathan and Phil did their thing with the numbers Kenny Davis the Business Manager came over and introduced himself. Aha I say, Jonathan and Phil are the nice guys, Kenny must be the Shark.I decide to lease the vehicle and the next step is to sit down with Kenny. Let me say here that 4 years ago, when getting a car from a competitor, I walked out of the Business Manager's office because of I thought he was crook. I am ready for Kenny!Kenny goes over everything with me in great detail, explains my options, convinces me it would be wise to buy the "alloy wheel package". I am waiting for the fun to start, waiting for the SHARK tactics to come out. Kenny puts the forms for signature in front of me..... I peruse them intently looking for the catch that I know is coming. Surprise, everything is just the way they said it would be! With that Kenny thanks me for leasing a car from Wantagh Mazda and says if I have any issues I should call him or anyone else on the team.I sit there and smile. I am 64 years old and this is not my first car. Did I just lease a car from a dealer without a fight? YES I DID. I should mention now that my last 3 cars came from the same major Mazda competitor. I ddn't go back to them this time because each subsequent transaction became more and more unpleasant. When a business talks about their "FAMILY" approach I always think it's a little corny and just a marketing ploy. Not anymore. The Mazda guys convinced I was wrong, they treat you like family. I will never go to another dealer again. Thank you to all involved
Just got my second Mazda 3 from Wantgah Mazda, was nearing the end of my first lease and went in to see if there was anything they could do to help me out with getting a new lease. Everyone at the dealership was incredibly friendly and did everything they could to make getting a new car easy and fluid. They did an amazing job at helping me out with the pricing and getting me out of my first lease, with no sales gimmicks or pressure either. They're straight forward to the point and do anything they can to get you the best deal. This is my second time getting a car from there and both times have been a very pleasurable experience.
I know the top- notch service department of Wantagh Mazda because we own Mazda's...andI do not trust the other dealership I purchased from. The integrity of Wantagh Mazda is famous,so coming here to purchase a pre-owned SUV was a no-brainer.Victor Liantonio is a special man...low key, humble, smart. He respected my "wish list" and never pressured me to "indulge"...yet he always took the time to explain the rationale behind some other options I had not yet considered. He was patient...kept me informed during the waiting process...and found the PERFECT car match for me.I want to also acknowledge the help from Joe Stella, who worked with me and Victor toget the best possible trade-in allowance for my much-loved Mazda 6.Please let me stress that, once I decided to purchase another Mazda, I did not dealer-hop.I told Victor up-front that I trusted Wantagh Mazda...and especially him. And I KNOW I got the best car...at the best price!
Not your stereotypical car-buying experience!
Even after seeing the great reviews of Wantagh Mazda on this site and others, I was skeptical. I walked in hoping to negotiate a lease on a CX-5, expecting the stereotypical car buying experience. You know, the "hard sell" with the salesman pulling the ol' "I have to ask my manager" trick four times before finally giving you a reasonable price. This was far from that.Jonathan greeted us and was patient, helpful and friendly throughout the process. He answered all of our questions and explained our options clearly. After I told him what we were looking for, he quoted us a very fair price -- the first time. After we agreed to the deal, we met the gregarious finance guy Kenny. I warned my wife, "This is where they try to trick you into buying all the extras." But outside of a modest push for a tire package, which Jonathan had already warned us was coming, there was none of that. My wife and I were stunned by how simple it all was. No nonsense, no pushy sales tactics. Exactly what a car buying experience should be!Thanks to Jonathan and to the management at Wantagh Mazda for a surprisingly pleasant and enjoyable experience.
Best Car Buying Experience Ever
This is a family run business and it shows in every level of detail. Everyone was courteous, respectful and very helpful. My salesperson was Victor and he was fantastic. He guided me through selecting, test driving and purchasing my car with knowledgeable help and no pressure whatsoever.By the end of this experience, I felt like I got the best car, at the best price from my best friend.
Restored my faith in car dealers!
First time we've leased a vehicle, and the process could not have been made easier. Dave and Phil were honest, interested in our questions and concerns, and made us feel like human beings, which is certainly not the typical dealer approach. If you want to buy or lease a vehicle from "real" people, rather than the typical con artists in this field, i'd strongly recommend Wantagh Mazda.
Always service with a smile!
Very smooth and professionally run service center from the woman at the counter to the service manager!I always get treated like a gentleman and my car comes out right the first time! And the price of the repairs I did is just as reasonable as the local service center Plus I get genuine Mazda parts , The waiting area is very clean, I like the fact they have complementary coffee, comfy chairs and a TV while I wait, and I got a loaner car no problem so I could take my kid to the doctor!, I live locally so I will be a customer for life here! Thank you Wantagh mazda Service!
By far the best dealership I dealt with while I was looking for a car. I felt treated like a friend rather than a customer. They easily had the best deals and best service.
Jim and Gary and the whole service team always treat me with respect and provide great customer service. I really appreciate the fact that the team was able to squeeze me in for a oil change right before the holiday weekend.Thank you,David Ludwig ........Proud Mazda driver for the last 19 years. 1991 Mazda RX7.....2004 Mazda RX8.....Now a 2014 Mazda CX-5
First Class Operation
This is my third car from Wantagh Mazda. Working with Victor is great. Makes the entire process painless. He is a true professional. The back office operation handled everything well and my experience with the service dept has been great.
enlightening and enjoyable experience
It was an awesome experience once again. This is my third Mazda and my second experience at this dealership. I loved the team work,the relaxed atmosphere and the way the sales managers went out of their way to work with me and ultimately I got all that I wanted. I left a very satisfied customer. Annette Dwyer
Truly a Pleasant Experience!
I had an absolutely wonderful experience at Wantagh Mazda! They are so different than any other car dealership. From the moment you walk in, you are warmly greeted, offered coffee & donuts and given the chance to look around on your own. You are able to test drive, discuss and think everything over with no pressure. They are extremely courteous and upfront when going over the pricing, features etc. There is no back & forth, it is what it is, it doesn't go up and down a million times while you're sitting there. My sales person Marino (and the Managers there) were so helpful to make sure I was getting the car I truly wanted at a price I was comfortable with. When I went to pick up my car, Marino thoroughly went over all the features in the car and made sure I was comfortable to drive off the lot. They really look out for your best interests and will not play any games. They value your time and understand leasing/purchasing a car is a big decision.
See David/Kenny-straight shooters, no pressure, only professional advice and guidance and helpfull all the way through the buying experience.See them- Go .
Service and professional care
This is one of several service visits to Wantagh Mazda for routine care. On time appointments and fast reliable service. If we need a new car in the future it will be Wantagh Mazda
THXs again David Chiari, Joe and the Family owned Mazda Team
The solid positive reviews in all media led me the Mazda CX-5 2016.5 Touring AND Mazda Wantagh dealership. Although set on the CX-5 I was soon intrigued and test driving the CX3 and CX-3... also great driving."Certified Master Sales Consultant" David Chiari (who has been with Wantagh Mazda over 30 yrs.) had me at Hello... Do you want to take (Cx-5) for a test drive. Thought it might be too much "car" for me having driven 4dr. sedan for 14yrs... but after few test drives I was hooked. Love the "push of a button" sport mode feature for quick acceleration whenever you need an extra kick.Considered a small SUV, the CX-5 roomy cargo space fits my racing bike w/o taking wheel off for quick & easy safe access. Very pleased with overall experience and believe I got a fair price for my Subaru trade-in. No pressure no hassle sales team and efficient exclusive Mazda Dealership!!
2106.5 CX5. David Chiari
I had both a family member and a neighbor recommend Wantagh Mazda, and specifically David Chiari. They were right. David was a most pleasant, professional and reliable person to deal with. I ordered the car on a Monday afternoon and had it a few days later. No glitches. No issues or glitches with financing or other paperwork. Smooth sailing and a nice experience all the way through.
Our second lease term, and again everything done exceptionally well. Philip Puleo and his team did everything to satisfy our needs.Thank you for great service.Rafael and Lana :)
Victor LIantonio was great no pressure just great buying exp
Victor Liantonio the best sales dealer for a car no pressure and so comfortable We felt as if we were speaking to an old friend. Just left with our Mazda 6 and really happy with Victor as our sales rep Wantagh Mazca so good AAAAA
Good experience MAZDA 3
on 4/30/2016 i got a deep blue MAZDA3 hatchback. i had good experience. as soon as i walked in victor introduced himself. gave me key to test drive the car myself. came back talked number straight to the $ no games. he said what he can take out and what other options i have to save money. next day picked up the car washed full tank of gas and out the door at no time. did not wait long . car drives smooth and comfortable.Thank you victor.ill recommend my friends to victor.
Great Experience (again)
Just over a year ago, Jon helped my daughter lease her 2015 CX5. The wonderful experience we had then caused me to look no further than Wantagh Mazda when it came time for me to lease a car. Jon was there again, and that very same day, I took possession of a Red 2016 Mazda 3. The staff is courteous, professional and there to help in any way possible. Thank you, again, Wantagh Mazda!
Easiest purchased ever!
Car buying process with John was quick and easy and stress free. All the other dealers offer me a test drive which is very short around a few blocks. I was surprised that John can trust me with the vehicle that he let me test drive alone, but since I didn't know the area I insist he join me for the test drive. The route that John show me which I consider a real test drive instead of going around a few block because I was able to fully test the ability of the vehicle that I wanted. John was very professional in explaining every detail about my new purchased vehicle and went over basically all the functions that the car offered. He and Kenneth (the financial guy) didn't try to sell me products that I don't need which made it a stress free purchased. On the other hand, it may have been better if Mazda offer more room for negotiation. Overall this place is outstanding!
Treated Like Family
I walked into Wantagh Mazda and met Phil who introduced me to Victor. From there, I felt right at home. Victor gave me all the info I needed and there wasn't any pressure. The men worked with me on price and I leased my new Cx3. The experience was very different from any other car dealership I have gone too. I loved it. Thank you Victor, Phil, Ken and Wantagh Mazda.
Excellent Customer Service!!!!
They made my car buying experience very easy!! Helped with all the paperwork and answered any question I had. definitely one of the best dealership I've been to.
Best Car Buying Experience
I purchased my first Mazda in 2005 from Wantagh Mazda and I loved my Tribute. When I needed a new car in 2013 I was disappointed Mazda was not making the Tribute any more so I leased a Honda CRV. I regretted that decision almost immediately. I could not wait for the lease to end so I could return to Mazda. I picked up my 2016.5 CX5 on Monday and I couldn't be happier. There is just something about driving a Mazda, I cant explain it but I can feel it. Working with the staff at Wantagh Mazda is an absolute pleasure. There really is no pressure. I was treated like family. Every aspect of the transaction went smoothly under the watchful eye of Victor. I HIGHLY recommend Wantagh Mazda and have no doubt when this lease is up I will be right back at their showroom for my next Mazda.
I love buying a new car, but hate it at the same time. Something about the stress of haggling takes away from the joy of getting a new car. Well for the first time I can say we truly enjoyed the process. The staff and management at Wantagh Mazda made our experience simple and stress free. They gave us a great deal on our CX5 and we are very happy with our decision to buy from them. This car was for my fiance and I will be back for myself in the near future. Thanks guys!
I had an issue with one of my tires and a long road trip coming up in less than 24 hours. I didn't have time to make a formal appointment with this unexpected issue so they accommodated me no questions asked and had me on my way so I could travel to a wedding on time. This is a dealer and location that cares about you!
Honest & Professional
As someone who truly hates the car buying process, I have to say that it was extremely refreshing to work with a dealer and salesman in Victor who was honest, not at all pushy and who had a calming demeanor that made me feel comfortable. I walked out very happy with the price I got for a new Mazda 6. The overall dealership also was very accommodating in getting me through the process quickly when I had to leave for another Saturday appointment. Interestingly, this family-owned business also is closed on Sundays so that employees can have quality time with their families. To be closed half the weekend speaks to the type of dealership this is (i.e., not just about the bottom line and squeezing every last nickel out of customers), and that made me want to support it as well.
they took care of me! listened to my concerns, when finished gary walked me to my car and explained all of my questions. sue was also helpful and wonderful!
I want to thank Joe B and Phil P for their expert advice in helping me purchase my 1st SUV. They were honest, knowledgeable, and professtional. They did not have the car that I wanted on their lot but they got it quickly. The whole process was completed on time when they promised. I would recommend this dealership to anyone looking to purchase a Mazda.
Excellent no nonsense dealership
Truly no nonsense. They show you the numbers and get down to business. Nothing hidden from your mind, no hidden costs at the end of the deal. Everything is done professionally and well at this dealership. Best car buying experience. Highly recommend this dealer to anyone looking for a Mazda!
Great dealership Everyone friendly and helpful Our salesman Victor could not have been nicer his knowledge and professionalism made this car acquisition a stress less experience Thanks Victor and thanks Wantsgh Mazda!!!
I was not even considering Mazda, but stopped by this dealirship, and was very pleasantly surprised not only by the quality of the vehicles, but also by superb friendly professional service by these amazing guys!It was the quickest and most pleasant car purchase that I have ever experienced!And I even traded in my car seamlessly!Highly recommend this dealership!
Great Guys over there!!
A pleasure to deal with the folks at Wantagh Mazda. They make you feel like they want to help you not hurt you. Great work!
Quick and better than expected
They are honest and stick to the time frame they tell you. I was in and out in under 20 minutes. Can't beat that, I will be back.
This is the 4th Mazda I purchased from Wantagh Mazda.
I want to thank Wantagh Mazda and my salesman Victor Liantonio for making the whole process of purchasing my CX-5 Grand Touring painless. It actually was a wonderful and very exciting experience. It was a bonus to learn about Wantagh Mazdas relationship with The North Shore Animal League since I have 3 rescue dogs of my own. Victor was wonderful to work with. Everything he did was honest, straightforward with no pressure. He lived up to my expectations, right through to the delivery of my shiny, new, black CX-5 Grand Touring.. Victor even made sure I was comfortable driving out of the lot onto Sunrise highway!
Great Experience buying my car with Vic Liantonio
I just got home with my 2016 Mazda 6. This is my 5th or 6th Mazda from the Wantagh Dealership. Vic has been my sales consultant for many of these years. I feel like I'm being treated like a member of his family. He is always honest and fair and works to help me stay within my budget. I always leave confident that I have gotten the best deal possible and that I can always call with any question or problem.
Just took home my new Mazda 3i Touring today. The entire experience was fantastic. Phil was fair, honest and responsive. We negotiated on the phone and when I came in, everything was as promised. Delivery was done by Ken and Jonathan. They were ready when we got there and the paperwork was completed in minutes. No upselling or any of that usual car dealership nonsense. Jonathan sat with my son for as long as he needed to learn everything about the car and feel comfortable. Highly recommend!!
Phil Puleo is without doubt the most professional, knowledgeable , and fair person I've ever dealt with while buying a car. He will have my business forever
Best salesman evet
Just love my car probably my 7th mazda.In my eyes no other car other than service never a problem. Kenny Davis awesome sales person knows just what i want and need set everything up in auto and off i went
1 st service
Ist service free? Oh,that free service is just an oil change with regular oil. The synthetic oil is extra. Sorry, no tire rotation. Not part of the free 1st service! If I wanted the free 1st service, I would need to pay an additional upcharge of $49.00. After an unhappy exchange, Service Advisor, Jim, agreed to full synthetic oil. Not a great 1st experience with my free 1st service.
Replacement Mazda CX5
Absolutely amazing experience at Wantagh Mazda! The entire team are extremely kind, friendly and helpful. This is my second car from Wantagh Mazda in about a three month period. I had leased (and got a fantastic deal) on a new Mazda CX5 at the beginning of January and unfortunately got into an accident which wrote off my car. Victor, Kenny, Joe and Vin made it a priority to get me back into another car without any headache or issue. Customer service and customer relationships are extremely important to Vin and his team as I have had the opportunity to experience on two occasions now. I have bought Mazdas from other locations on Long Island and I can say without question these other dealerships do not compare.
Excellen and thorough service!
I brought my Mazda 6 in to have a burned out headlight repaired. I was advised that both of my rear brake lights were also burned out. I had no knowledge of this problem. Of course I had those repaired as well. I am so grateful that this hazardous problem was noticed as a result of the thorough and high quality work at Wantagh Mazda. Jim and Gary along with all of the service department personnel are so committed to customer satisfaction and professionalism! Thanks so much!
Easy convent appointments. Repairs were completed when promised. Even provided a loaner car. Would definitely bring my car to Wantagh Mazda again. Reasonable prices for work done.
Outstanding service, as always!
Just a routine service, but with excellent quality. Car has now close to 110,000 miles on it, and has had no major problems ever!
Best representative for Mazda EVER!!! Victor is wonderful sales person, very informative, genuine, forthright and friendly. He is helpful, courteous, and a consummate professional. I highly recommend anyone seeking to purchase a car to contact Victor. The entire staff is delightful and make the process very easy without pressure. I highly recommend Wantagh Mazda on its own merits, and recommend them over all other dealerships!
My Second Purchase...
From Wantagh Mazda, and for the second time I have no complaints, friendly knowledgeable salespeople, reasonable prices and a completely hassle free shopping experience, really what more could you ask for?
The service group at the Wantagh location are exceptional. Always very professional and honest (which is rare in the business). I had gone to see them, due to a recall on a particular steering part. They then took my car (CX9) for a drive and realized that the car would jerk a bit when stopping. I did not say anything when i first went to them to see if they would notice it; and they did. It turned out to be my front rotors that were shot. They came to me and told me that only the rotors should be replaced. They could have easily said the breaks were shot as well, but they did not.That is why i go to them.
You wont mind shopping for a car here.
I used to dread shopping for a new car.The usual assault by salesman with their pressure tactics.Not at Wantagh Mazda no pressure if you want to just look thats fine.My family has purchased or leased 3 cars from Victor over the last couple of years and the experience has always been a pleasure.I am the type of customer that if you earn my trust you will have a customer for life.There service department is also great if you have a problem you can pull in and they will do there best to help you out.
This is our 5th time coming back to Wantagh Mazda. Phil and the guys never demand or pressure us.. Makes buying/leasing a pleasure. Enjoy their company!
Great First Experience
Just signed my first lease with David and couldn't be happier! The staff at Wantagh Mazda made it an easy process and were able to accommodate everything I wanted in the Mazda CX-5 at a reasonable price. Thank you David and Phil for being extremely helpful throughout the whole process!
Above and Beyond
I recently had some very serious trouble with my Mazda 3, but Mr. Gary Gavin and company not only fixed a very complex repair, but did it in a timely and cost effective manner, I could not have been happier with their professional and courteous service.A very satisfied customerMike Campisi
This was our third and fourth lease from Wantagh Mazda and I couldn't imagine going anywhere else. Victor and staff are knowledgeable and courteous and treat you like family. They really work hard to make sure you get the best deal for the car you want. Dealing with them is a very easy and pleasurable experience.
3rd car from here. They treat you like family. It is a pleasure to gets cars from here. I just picked up my 3rd car from here yesterday and would highly recommend them to anyone.
Best Dealership Experience
This is my 4th new car and having had different car makes over the years my entire experience with Wantagh Mazda was the BEST hands down!! Everyone was knowledgeable and super accommodating. Victor Liantonio is an amazing salesman and knows his stuff. Was such a pleasure to deal with him on my visits in and would recommend to him everyone. I never felt any kind of pressure and couldn't be happier with the dealership and the car. Thanks to everyone for a great experience :)
We really enjoyed dealing with the guys at Wantagh Mazda. This was our sons 1st car and he learned all about what the car buying experience should be like. David took the time to explain all the features of the car and answered all of our sons questions. Never felt pressured. No games or bait a switch tactics. Joe, Kenny and David were a pleasure to deal with. Honest value from this dealership. Least I mention the car is amazing. Gets top reviews among the competition for cars in this class.
We have been dealing with Wantagh Mazda for several years and have always felt like family. David continues to be a tremendous asset to your company. He always does the right thing by us and continues to make sure we are never disappointed. My wife and I enjoy doing business with David, this is our 5th car we have leased with him. Thank you for always being kind and supportive to us.
Gary did an excellent job getting my remote start App on my Mazda Cx-3. He really ensure I'm taking care of. Thank you Gary!
My 5th car from Wantagh Mazda - enough said!
My salesman listens to exactly what I want and cuts right to the chase. No nonsense. Great service department. And, closed on Sunday (thats a good thing)!
Leasing my 6th car with Victor Liantonio. Only car salesman I trust. He's one of the best. Never gives you the run around, always up front and honest.
Easy, well coordinated and professional
I recently switched from leasing a Honda CR-V to leasing a new CX-5. As with any new car there is always something new that one dealer does differently that the other. I'm still getting used to these, but so far I've noticed that: 1) The pickup in my Mazda is peppier and there when you need it most. 2) Road noise is much quieter. 3) The seats are more comfortable. 4) The drivers side feels roomier. 5) My Honda's Bluetooth was terrible and would always be problematic, whereas the Bluetooth on the Mazda hasn't been a problem. 6) The voice commands are taking some time to get used to: my Honda allowed for me to store pre-recorded "Call Home" and worked like a charm, but with the Mazda, there are a few more steps that seem to take longer.7) The HD stereo sounds great and is easy to navigate using "Favorite settings".8) With the push button door open option, I don't have to remove the keys from my pocket and can get out of the cold fast.9) Handles great in the snow (AWD). Overall, so far, the car is more enjoyable to drive. My Sales team were very knowledgeable and assisted me with getting the features I wanted. They even took care of getting my former leased vehicle to a drop off location out on the Island. I would strongly recommend checking this dealer out if you are considering a Mazda.
Fair, Honest, Good Value, Good service Department
No high pressure here. Just honest give and take, good value, and great cars. The three times I have leased cars from Phil Puleo, I have received what I wanted at a fair price that I could afford. Gary Gavin of the Service Department is always giving me discounts to be competitive. When I picked up my new CX-5, Joe Bonavito thoroughly went over each feature and quickly had me on my way to work. Once again a pleasant non threating experience all around. Best car dealership I have ever dealt with.
Quick professional sevice
I have been using the service center for Wantagh Mazda for at least five years. The staff is always friendly, fast.and reliable. They are true professionals. This past week, Jim had an extra oil change coupon for me. Always a good experience. Thank you Jim and Gary.
I would like to thank the staff at Wantagh Mazda for making this the best car buying experience I ever had. A special thanks to Victor Liantonio the salesman for making it seem like family.
Leasing made easy. Victor Liantonio is a great salesman. This is the second Mazda 6 I am leasing through Victor and my recent experience was as great as my first with Victor 3 years ago.
Awesome dealership !!!
This is my second car I leased with Mazda. I had Mazda 3 hatchback and truly had no problems with it. Victor Liantonio was the salesman that helped me back in 2012. I have never had such a great experience going into a dealership and feeling a true honesty with everyone there. I just turned in my lease and released the new Mazda 3 CXR. I made sure to see Victor again! Such a lovely gentleman and really very helpful in helping me make the right decision . When picking up the new car Victor made sure to go over everything on how the car works without rushing me out of the dealership. The manager Phil was very polite and Phil and Victor both worked together on helping me get a car payment that would be within my budget. Also Kenny and Victor worked together speaking to my Insurance company on switching over the policy to the new car. Mazada dealership is very lucky to have these men on there team of selling such a great car!! I highly recommend this dealership , I only hope that when I turn my car in Victor will be there to help me lease my next car.. A huge Thank you to Victor for all his help and Kindness !!! Much thanks!! Lynne Allen
Wonderful experience. My daughter and I have purchased vehicles from Wantagh Mazda. Salesman, John was knowledgeable and not pushy at all. I would recommend this dealership to everyone who needed a new car.
Low Key Atmosphere ... No High Pressure Sales
We were shopping for a CX-5 and went to Wantagh Mazda first as it was the closest to us in Baldwin. We walked into the showroom after looking at the CX-5's in the lot. We were greeted by the friendly sales staff who left us alone after we said we were just looking. This was a pleasant change from the usual car dealerships where you felt surrounded by sharks as soon as you entered. After a few minutes, we sat with Victor Liantonio and asked him questions about the CX-5. Victor worked with us through the leasing process, choosing options, and getting a good price for our trade in. We had intended to shop other dealers and for other car companies but Victor impressed us with his knowledge and enthusiasm. We closed the deal that same day.
New Car Purchase
It was a pleasure doing business with Victor. He was honest & answered all questions. There was no pressure. I would highly recommend somebody buying a new car to go to Wantaugh Mazda & see him. From the moment we walked into the dealership to when we drove the car off the lot was so smooth.Buying a New CX5 Touring was an amazing purchase.
Great dealership all around
David..ken and joe all super to work with...have used this dealership for over 20 years! Service dept knowledgeable and very accommodating..they do the job right and with a smile
New car purchase
Joe was such a pleasure to work with. He made the whole process go smoothly as well as Kenny. Would definitely recommend this dealership and Joe and will return.
New Mazda CX 5 - Amazing experience
Amazing experience! From the moment I walked to the moment I drove off with my new car. Victor and the team at Wantagh Mazda were fantastic. Kind, patient and very helpful.
Scheduled appointment on IPad two nights before. My advisor (Gary) was cordial and attentive as always. He was able to check computer for the car's service history. He applied discount from mailing and car was ready in one hour while I waited.
Made car buying pleasant.
The staff at Wantagh Mazda,especially Marino Gonzalez, made the entire car buying process ENJOYABLE. My wife needed a new car. Our first visit was met with. a NO pressure sales pitch. That guaranteed a second visit, which resulted in us happily purchasing a CX-5. Kenny got us financing, when our bank said no. We had one minor issue which was handled pleasantly and rectified immediately. We mostly dealt with Marino, but I think each employee at one point helped us or at least greeted us as we came in. My sister and a friend will be going to Wantagh Mazda in the near future due to our recommendation. All I can say is GO to Wantagh Mazda. You WILL be happy you did.
Third time getting a car at Wantagh Mazda
Recently leased 2016 CX 5 (third time working with Joe Bonavita). Fair on trade in of old car, very straight forward experience as has been my prior experience with Wantagh Mazda. On day we went to pick up the car, the wrong color was delivered but it was promptly taken care of. Extremely professional and will always recommend Joe and the guys at Wantagh Mazda.
Amazing staff and experience
This was my family's 3rd time purchasing a vehicle at Wantagh Mazda, and again we had a wonderful experience. The staff was courteous, helpful, and extremely willing to work within our schedule to make buying my CX-5 easy. We didn't feel pressured by the staff to make a decision quickly, and the managers were willing to work with us to get us the best deal for the best price. I will 100% be recommending this dealership to my family/friends in the future and hope we can do business with them all once again! Thank you again guys!
First lease... a huge success =)
I leased my first car, a mazda 3 I 4 door sport. The sales person who helped with my transaction was Marino Gonzalez. He was very informative, upbeat, and thorough. I had a great experience here, and was very pleased with all of the information presented to me when I first came in. The test drive was very convenient and pleasant. I highly recommend this dealership, and more specifically, dealing with Marino.
First time buyer
Leased my first car, mazda3 I 4-door sport.my salesman Victor Liantonio was very professional and knowledgeable with the whole process.made the whole experience smooth and easy.
Excellent service for oil change
I brought my 2012 Mazda 3 here for an oil and filter change. They took me right on time (I had a 9am appt.) and reminded me that my inspection was due that month and did I want to have it done right now. They completed the oil change and the inspection within an hour. They also told me upfront what the cost would be. I even had them change the battery in my remote car key. They are very nice and efficient and provide a very clean and pleasant waiting area. I already knew the sales division was top notch and I feel the same way about the service division. Would definitely come back again!
This was the smoothest transition for returning a leased car and getting into our new Mazda 6. The dealer did a fantastic job and was very knowledgeable. Everyone at the dealer was friendly and helpful.
First year inspection and Fall Service
This is my third CX-9. Great car very under-rated. Gary Gavin in service is a true professional. They honer their appointments and get me on my way ASAP. No surprises,just great service.P.S. while i'm waiting Victor Liantonio makes sure mycoffee cup is full !
All the employees seemed to go out of their way to be friendly and accommodating. I found what I wanted quickly. There was no pressure or "sales talk." Although the car I wanted was not in stock at this dealership, they found it for me right away -- before I left the office. I highly recommend.
Thank You Wantagh Mazda
When I came in to meet salesman Joe Bonavita, he was working with another customer. Everyone I met at the dealership while waiting for Joe came up to me and welcomed me with a handshake. A test drive of the 2016 CX 5 followed, with no one else except for my wife and I. I was told to take as long as we needed. Not my first new car, but the first test drive alone. Impressed. I love my new CX 5. It will be a month on Dec. 16. Thanks Joe and Kenny. Great to meet you.
Best Experience at a car dealership ever!
We wanted to lease a CX-5 and chose Wantagh Mazda based on the great reviews online. We were not disappointed! Unlike other dealerships, the atmosphere when you walk in is calm and relaxed. There was no hard selling/pressure to buy. Phil and Jorge were friendly, professional and took the time to answer all our questions. Kenny was great as well. Every staff member we met was friendly. It definitely is the best dealership we've ever been to and we would recommend them to anyone!

EASY GOING LEASE EXPERIENCE
After a previously painful leasing experience for my daughter one month prior to my turn, I explained the pain that I went through to my salesman Victor Liantonio, he said don't worry we don't do things that way here, he was right. I wound up getting a great deal at Wantagh Mazda and I can highly recommend them, thanks Victor.
Stress free Leasing
Having recently had an awful experience leasing a car, doing business with Wantagh Mazda was a pleasure. They provided a lot of help and information without all the tacky sales pressure. The negotiation was fair, stress free and I got a great price for a Mazda 3 lease. Even got free pizza and donuts for Black Friday!! Overall nice team of people that make the process easy.
experience with buying new car
Very helpful and courteous, got us a great deal! He walked us through the whole process and made us both very happy, We are very satisfied with the whole experience.
easiest car shopping ever
The employees at Wantagh Mazda made this car shopping experience an absolute pleasure from start to finish. I would highly recommend this dealership to anyone.
Never met face to face
I was searching four my 4th Mazda 3. I had done some shopping in Bay Shore and met with a salesman there. I had been giving 3 prices after a bit of negotiating and still was not thrilled. I called Phil over at Wantagh and simply asked whats the best you can do after explaining my situation. He beat the price I was already given. After calling the salesman and explaining that he had been outbid and giving him one more chance, he still came up short. I can say that Phil was honest and straightfoward and less than a week without ever meeting in person, I was driving out in the car that I wanted at a price I was happy with.
Absolutely top notch experience
I just received my Mazda 6 today from Wantagh Mazda and Joseph Bonavita made this purchase go as enjoyable as can be. I've had a few miserable experiences with salesmen at other dealerships and it's made me jaded but Joesph and the rest of his team has made me realize that buying a car can actually be gratifying. If you're in the market for a Mazda on Long Island you will not regret buying your cars from Wantagh Mazda.
perfect from beginning to end-highest recommendation-fair price on trade in-fair price on purchase-willing to go the extra mile(literally) to get exactly what we wanted
Best car buying experience ever!
I have purchased many vehicles over the years, both new and used. Without fail, the car purchasing experience is always a draining process. When we recently decided to purchase a pre-owned CX7, I donned my imaginary armor, and headed to Wantagh Mazda. Joseph Bonavito in sales, greeted me as a friend and showed me the car. He went over every detail of the car and even let me take the car for a ride alone - without him in the vehicle, As I rode off he said , "have a good time, I'll see you in an hour." We decided to purchase the car. There were some cosmetic issues and Joe made sure everything was taken care of before we picked it up. We mentioned that we would like a roof rack on the vehicle. With Phil the manager's help, they made that happen too, without any additional cost. Kenny was great to work with & he got us the low interest loan we had heard about. Within a week of purchase, I brought the car in for a minor bulb issue, and asked them to check the wiper blades as they appeared to be streaking the windshield. Apparently the windshield had some damage - the streaks were not removable. At Phil the manager's discretion, the windshield was replaced at no cost to me! I know that any other place would have said - sorry - it's your problem now. Gary in the service dept was also great. He went "over and above " & found us a driver side floor mat to replace the damaged one in the vehicle. Joe said, "We really want you to be happy" and I believe him. We are very happy with our vehicle and our experience at Wantagh Mazda was incredibly positive. I would not hesitate to send all my family and friends to this dealership in general and Joseph Bonavita in particular. In summary, Joe is a consummate professional, and an all-around pleasant fellow. While I was waiting for my vehicle to be serviced, I was sitting nearby Joe's desk. He was helping a woman with some information on a car. When she was leaving, I heard her say to Joe, "Thank you so much - you are awesome!" And that he is. Thank you Joe!
This is our second time leasing from Wantagh mazda and our second time going to Victor. I can't say enough about their professionalism and overall assistance in making this experience easy and comfortable. Always helpful and always forthcoming. I walk in and feel like I am known by many of the staff there and leave happy with the experience. Thanks to all for an honest and helpful car leasing experience.
Best New Car Buying Experience I have ever had
Wantagh Mazda has raised the bar when it comes to Car Buying .The Whole Car buying experience was exceptional . Sales Rep Victor's honesty made me feel so relaxed and pressure free... Kudos to Wantagh Mazda, especially Victor Liantonio )...
best experience at a dealership
I've bought and leased vehicles from other dealers but this is by far the best experience I've had. they all make you feel like family, aren't pushy AT ALL, will work with what you want and make sure you're 150% happy before you leave there. makes me not want anything but a mazda now! Now I have 2 other family members going to get cars from them.
A great experience
Not only did I get a great car but my experience at Wantagh Mazda was amazing. Everyone at the dealership was helpful friendly and always willing to go the extra mile. Marino my sales rep was the best he couldn't do enough for me. I never write reviews but I had to write one now.
Third car purchased there, only place to purchase a Mazda. Easy to deal with, tremendous job on custom car. Would recommend Phil and Jorge to all.
Loyal Mazda client for over 10 yrs .Victor is one of my prime reasons for repeat, due to his outstanding sales/care/knowledge/personal attention.
Excellent and efficient all the time
Even though I did not purchase my car from Wantagh Mazda, their service department has always taken care of my car, with amazing service, and service advise. I have been coming to Wantagh Mazda service for a few years now, and when its time to purchase or lease my next Mazda, I know where to go, for sure.
I had a great experience at Wantagh mazda. It was fast and easy to understand all aspects of the buy without being pressured.I think it was one of my best car buying experiences ever
Had a great experience from the minute I walked in. Everyone was so accommodating. Marino was so helpful with teaching me how to use the car. Everyone was very nice
I am a returning customer to Mazda and Joe B.helped my experience go by very smoothly. Getting a new vehicle can be nerve wracking but Joe made the process seem so easy and helped out with all of my concerns. He is a wonerful salesman and highly recommended! Thanks again Mazda!
Exactly how the experience should be
I had an excellent experience with Wantagh Mazda, everyone that worked there was great. Joe Bonavita is such a professional with such a warm, genuine personality. He took care of everything, made it super simple, quick and zero surprises. Very honest, family run ownership and you can feel that difference the first time you walk through the door. I'm recommending the car, Mazda 6 Sport and this dealership to everyone! The car is awesome, everything about it, the handling, the pick up, the way the seat hugs you, super roomy, it's simply awesome.
Purchase of Mazda 3
Marino was polite, professional, and patient with our concerns. He alleviated any concerns we had. We would recommend him to those friends wishing to purchase a Mazda.
Stress Free Experience
Wantagh Mazda was excellent! Marino is very passionate about what he does and it shows in his professionalism and expertise. Basically, all I had to do was choose the vehicle and color and he took care of the rest. I will highly recommend him to my friends and family. Marino is the epitome of what a salesperson should be. In addition to Marino, I also had the pleasure to conduct business with Kenny, Wantagh Mazda's financial expert. Kenny fought hard for me to get the best rate available so that I was able to afford the vehicle I wanted. Thank you both Marino and Kenny for making my experience stress free. I visited many dealerships on Long Island looking for the best deal and hands down, Wantagh Mazda is superior to them all! Thank you again Marino and Kenny! I love my CX 5 AWD!
Great overall experience
From the test drive (which I was able to take without the salesman) to the final delivery of my car Wantagh Mazda and the sales team made leasing my new CX-5 great. I look forward to leasing another car from this dealership!
Simple and Painless
We met with Marino through an internet email, he was fast with his response, listened to our needs and within 30 min we had exactly what we requested, and not a penny more than our original quote. I had a terrible experience at a closer Mazda dealer, typical bait and switch, options and colors not what we wanted, much higher cost than was willing to pay, a salesman that runs to his manager and comes back with deal "too good to be true".. blah blah blah.. Needless to say we left without a vehicle, that's when I decided to give the online a try, 1st time, and Marino came through big time, within a day we were driving our CX5 exactly the way we wanted it, very simple and painless process..Thanks Marino and Wantagh Mazda
salesman was calm, nice. took time to go through the car with us, deal with the trade in. the finance guy was cool to deal with.
From the test drive (which I was able to take without the salesman) to the final delivery of my car Wantagh Mazda and the sales team made leasing my new CX-5 great. I look forward to leasing another car from this dealership!
Great trusted dealer
This is my fifth Mazda from this dealer.The experience is always a great one . They are an honest ,trusted dealer withGreat prices and knowledgeable Salespeople.Ownership and management are wonderful people and it trickles down throughout the dealership . Sales manager Phil Puleo is the best in the business.Don't go anywhere else for your Mazda ....
Pleasant car buying experience.
I buy a new car every few years and look forward to it. What I don't look forward to is the sale process. I am very anti-salesman in all purchases but none more so than car buying.So what a pleasant surprise this purchase was. I contacted Marino Gonzalez via internet, and explained exactly what I was looking for at the price I was looking for. He told me he would look around and let me know.Most communication was done with email, and a few phone calls for additional clarification. Once we had a deal I went down and found a very pressure free, comfortable experience.I highly recommend them for consideration on your next purchase.
My Experience at Wantagh Mazda
I hadn't bought a new car since 1996, and really was not looking forward to the "car salesman" experience. I knew what I wanted and had decided the first sign of sales pressure I would be headed to another dealer. I was so pleasantly surprised when I went to Wantagh Mazda and met Marino Gonzalez. He is pleasant, polite, knows his inventory, and did not try to sell me anything I didn't want. Marino was comfortable to talk with, got my car, handled my insurance company when a minor mistake came up, and had me in my new car in less than three days. He has since made a courtesy call, and even scheduled my first service call. He is an asset to this dealer and I would recommend him highly to anyone. Plus, I absolutely love my new Mazda. Thanks Wantagh Mazda and a great big thanks to Marino.
easy & quick
This is the second time we bought a used car here & have been very satisfied.We have also serviced the car here.All of the employees have been very helpful.
