Finally got an electric car!

Very positive experience from my initial phone call to the dealership about whether they had any Bolts when I was fortunate to speak with Les Horne who is very knowledgeable about the Bolt. Equally great was the fact a Bolt was going to arrive in the next 2-3 weeks. Les ensured I had all the information I needed to make the decision to get the Bolt and also arranged for me to see an actual Bolt that another customer of his had purchased. I found the finance person Annie very helpful and efficient and all staff I have met have been friendly and willing to help.

2018 Chevy volt

Went into Harris Chevrolet and was looking for a vehicle with better fuel economy and talked to Les Horne. I thought of the Chevy volt but I knew nothing about electric cars and he was very professional and patient showing me exactly the in and outs of the car and I decided to purchase the volt and very happy with my choice and how easy Les made it for me including the financing and paperwork with minimal to no effort on my part as he handled everything for me and with my busy life it was a perfect transaction, I highly recommend this dealership in parksville and will gladly recommend friends and family to go see Les at Harris for a new car,thank you again!

Les was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the product. Took time to explain the many features of the vehicle. You don’t see that kind of service a lot anymore. Thank you for everything.

Best experience ever!

After all my years of purchasing vehicles, finally, for the first time, I have had a great car purchase experience! The dealership is nice, clean and feels like it’s a real family atmosphere there. Everyone that I dealt with was friendly and helpful without that “pressure” that you normally experience at a dealership. I have brought my previous car to the service department for repairs and even there, have only had good experiences. Les, who was the salesperson that I dealt with for this deal, was the first car salesperson I have had that treated me like a normal person buying a car without any pressure at all and from the time I stepped into the dealership to the time I had bought a vehicle, I was only there just over an hour.....impressive! I ended up buying a Malibu (at a very reasonable price) as a family vehicle and now, especially my daughter who is a new driver, will be driving a car that is safe and reliable. Thank you again Les, and I will definitely be coming back to you for my next car purchase in the near future! Bri (A very happy new car owner and customer for life!)

Rock n roll tour van success!!

I was booked to go on a cross canada/America tour with my band. The van I had broke and I needed a new one. Les found me one in a week and I was signing the insurance papers the day before I left on tour. That van has now been on multiple tips, seen multiple shaggings and many adventures later im still happy with it. Les pulled strings to get it for me and was an excellent person to work with. I'll get my next band van through Les

Went above and beyond.

We had a few recent bad experiences with car dealerships. Les, within minutes of hearing our story went right to work to find a vehicle and the government incentives we were looking for. We purchased a new 2018 Volt. Les was very knowledgeable about the vehicle and we appreciated his honesty and his integrity. Ashley, in the finance office was a tremendous help and super friendly. We would highly recommend Harris Oceanside Chevrolet.

From the time meeting Gary De Pape Sales Mgr. , the test drive with Les Horne to getting the best deal with the trade in of my 2016 Silverado. It was an easy, relaxed, friendly and what is best for you the customer. After sales service with Les Horne was a thoughtful process making sure I understand all operations of the new technology and operation of the truck. plus making himself available anytime onward if I had and questions. Also need to add that the finance dept. was speedy as possible, making me feel at ease, relaxed through the process.

I was incredibly impressed with the professionalism and knowledge of your representative Les. He was extremely helpful and I can honestly say that without his attention I would not have made up my mind so quickky, and without haggling over the price. Best car purchasing experience of my life.

Exceptional Customer Service

I cannot say enough about the service I received at Harris Oceanside. All the people that I interacted with for the purchase on my 2017 Buick Envision were friendly, easy to talk to and overall a great group to deal with. Les went above and beyond to organize my car deal to be completed in just over an 90 minutes. He helped set up the vehicles safety features and my phone to sync so I was ready for my drive back to Alberta. I love my new Buick! Sheila Rindal

'refreshing change"

Other dealerships could learn a lesson from Harris-Oceanside on how to treat customers - a refreshing change, no BS, no pressure but still attentive to your needs - the way a Dealership should be run. Dealt with Les and Ashley to close the deal - both real nice people to deal with. Les is a car guy - very comfortable talking to him about cars, both for the road and the track. Ashley explained all my options - no pressure. Thanks every body.

Set us up with a Bolt just under the wire!

On the day we realized we didn't want to sink any more money into our old gas car I called up and spoke with Les at Harris Oceanside about electric vehicles. He talked with me for a while explaining differences and options, hybrids etc. Then he explained the rebates available and the timing required to grab one rebate I was looking into. We went out the next day on a Sunday to meet Les when the dealership was closed because he knew we were almost out of luck if we didn't move fast and we were almost ready. As soon as we called him up next morning he got us set up and we were in a short queue. He always made himself available and responded to our emails in a flash. Les did so much to get us a car faster and let us know when we had an opportunity to take a model sooner than ours was built. We were thrilled and honestly he made it all very easy for us. It was a little nerve wracking buying our first new car and we really appreciated his honesty, immediate communication and excitement. Thanks Les!

Outstanding

I have just purchased my second new vehicle from Les. The experience has been outstanding. Les was very knowledgeable about the vehicle and took the time to make the purchase a great experience. He went "above & beyond" when I expressed a concern about the vehicle being too low for my driveway by taking a vehicle to my home and making sure it would go up my driveway. Les completed the sale at that point. I would highly recommend Les and Harris Oceanside.

Easy vehicle purchase experience

I have purchased a lot of vehicles in my time. Les helped me along with my purchase and trade. I researched the vehicle I bought and found the asking price very fair. I reasesrched my trade and had some numbers in mind. I don’t like any dickering so asked Les to do the best they can and I’ll take it or keep mine. Price difference was very fair, no fuss. Great team.

Experts at What They do.

My father recommended Les at Harris as my lease was maturing. They got me into an updated version of the same car at the same price of my original vehicle and three times the warranty coverage. The finance department worked out a payment plan that works for my family and We love the new TRAX. Drives like a dream. Polar opposite experience to my first time dealing with GM. They turned my never again into a can’t wait for next time. I think they could have sweetened the deal by offering more perks such as a gas discount card or free detailing for future redemption but I am very happy nonetheless.

World class customer experience

I had a world class customer experience with Les, John and Cheryl. Les was very informative when it came to helping me purchase the 2018 Chevy sonic. He provided a lot of detail when it came to the specifications of the vehicle and with a in-depth test drive I was able to get a good feel for how it handled. John and Cheryl worked really hard to meet my expectations financially. By giving me a little more of a trade in value for my used vehicle, and going that extra mile to explore all options to remain within my bi weekly budget. From start to finish this took a good portion of the day but it was countered by their friendly , professional work ethic. The little things like offering me a coffee, sharing a personal experience or even wearing an outstanding Christmas suit (loved it John!) makes a huge difference when connecting with people. Because of that, time seemed to fly quite quickly . After everything was said and done Les then gave me his contact information giving me that "peace of mind" knowing that a lot of information was passed down and if I should have any questions I could reach out to him. I am very pleased with the service I received today .Thank you everyone for all your help and I wish you a very Merry Christmas Corey

Used Buick

I visited Harris and met Les Horne...told him i saw a Buick Regal on their web-site...he showed me the car, got the background info and we went through it. We did a good test drive and he told us about the options in the car. We wanted the care and worked with john Eivindson on my trade..eventually we agreed on the terms. Cheryl worked with us to get financing...and was efficient and quick and helpful! Fallyon Jenko...think it was Real Insurance...help get the car covered she we could take it home...all in all everyone was good to deal with! Hopefully the car works as well.

Local Shopping

We really wanted to support a local dealership. Shopping local is important to both of us.. Harris Oceanside did not have the exact Buick model that we were looking for however between our salesman Les and manager John, Harris Oceanside was able to negotiate a deal with a dealership on the Mainland and have the exact vehicle of our choice delivered to Parksville very quickly. We were really pleased that they made this happen for us and we did not have to "settle".

Exceptional service & Customer Care

I’ve been using Harris Oceanside for service for years and have always been extremely happy. Recently I decided to purchase a new Equinox from Harris Oceanside. Prior to my purchase I contacted Les Horne. Les was on the hunt immediately for me keeping me updated with any new purchase options until the right one came available. Les’s knowledge and service before, during and after the sale was exemplary. Harris Oceanside offers the best in customer service and relationships and Les Horne is a key component of this high level of commitment and excellence.

Hot Wheels & Great Customer Service!

Les Horne went above & beyond to make sure I purchased the car I was most comfortable with. He took the time to present all the information and options I need to consider before buying a car and he was never pushy. I ended up getting my dream car Camaro with a very affordable cost. I look forward to our next project with Les....upgrading my boyfriend's truck! Les is an amazing person!

Harris Oceanside, a relaxed atmosphere to purchase a vehicle

Les Horne and the team provided a relaxing atmosphere to purchase our new GMC pickup. We enjoyed the stress free environment at the dealership. Les came in on his day off to accomadate us and provide thoughtful insite regarding our future purchase. We found the Financial Services Manager a pleasant surprise. From previous experience we have found most Financial Managers rather high pressure but not at Harris Oceanside. No problems recommending this dealership.

Sweet buckets of Chevy!!!

I was looking for an SUV that could tow , go and handle snow. So when I drove on to the Parksville Harris Chevrolet lot, I could see right away that there were a few more options available to see than I had expected. After a having had a good look around, I had set my sights on a Black on Black 2017 Chevy Tahoe. This little gem was parked on the ramps out front two months ago! I had seen it many times while I was at the coffee shop next door. I liked it then , I love it now. I couldn't believe it was still there!! I wasn't sure that I would be able to take it home with me that day with the time being late Friday afternoon. Well, Les Horne (sales) and Chelsea Iverson(financing) and John Eivindson (General Manager) ,put their best feet forward and by the end of day I was insured, fueled,and ready to roll. I'd like to thank everyone who helped make this wonderfully positive and so easy to get into the last vehicle I plan to buy for a long long time. So very happy thanks again. If anyone needs me I'll be in my Tahoe....

From Andy Lankaster the General Manager/Owner, to Steve Peters, Ashley Henry, Les Horne, all the way to Richard Stewart in Service, and all their support staff - they all make you feel like you matter.

It was a bitter sweet decision to finally come to the decision to trade in my very reliable GMC Safari. I purchased it from Harris Oceanside nearly 15 years ago but it was time. The process was made easy by the staff that helped me. I was given a very fair trade in on my old vehicle and everyone tried hard to make my new purchase an affordable and comfortable one for me. I am now the proud and very happy owner of my 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan. It’s perfect for my family and my Home Staging and Design business.

"Above and Beyond"

Purchasing a new vehicle is not something to be taken lightly. The choices are endless, the options seem infinite, and the dealerships are many, all promising the prospective purchaser "the best car buying experience ever". Well, I'm delighted to say that I have indeed found that gem of a dealership that truly delivers that "best experience ever", Harris Oceanside. From my initial viewing of their inventory, the communications with Andy and Ashley, Richard finding me the "perfect ride", Christine's outstanding service and Harlem's kind, considerate, patience in navigating me through the features of my new Equinox, I have felt nothing less than valued. I know that if I need their assistance with any of the features of my vehicle, the warranties or any other questions, I will be taken care of. My experience in purchasing my new vehicle from Harris Oceanside has been nothing short of outstanding. The staff involved with my purchase have absolutely gone above and beyond to ensure that I have made the best decision for my driving needs. I would highly recommend Harris Ocean and their team to anyone looking to purchase a vehicle. They treat their clients with the utmost courtesy and consideration, and they truly do deliver "the best car buying experience ever".

Professional, Friendly, Knowledgeable.

I was ready to give up on finding a new vehicle that was safe, comfortable and affordable--and then I bumped in to Richard Allen. He said he knew he could find me what I was looking for. And I'm so glad he was right! Up until then I had been looking at Hondas, Toyotas and Mazdas. There was always something wrong with these vehicles--either the seats were too small, there wasn't enough leg room or head room, the cargo area was too small, the seat was too low, and the list goes on. I figured if I was going to buy a new auto, it was going to be what I wanted. I would have to live with my decision for a long time. Richard understood this. He was never pushy. It was apparent how knowledgeable he was about the Chevrolets I was interested in from the get go, unlike the other sales people at the other dealerships I had been shopping at for the prior 2 months. In the end, Richard sold me a Chevrolet Trax, which was reasonably priced, safe (check out the iihs website rating) and comfortable. I feel assured I will be happy with this vehicle for years to come. Thanks Richard!

Great experience.

We've been wanting an electric vehicle for some time now but were concerned about the range limitations and the cost. After reading about the Volt, then test driving it, and finally learning all we needed to know from Richard and Adams, we are confident we made a very good decision to purchase our new Volt, Everyone we dealt with in the process was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. It was a great experience.

Vehicle shopping made easy!

Harris Oceanside made my new vehicle purchase process pleasant and fun. The salesperson was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about my GMC Canyon. This is our third vehicle purchase from Harris and each time has been great. I personally want to deal with businesses that give back to the community and Harris ticks that box too! Well done Harris!

We're proud new Volt owners, thanks to Harris Oceanside!

We had a great experience in dealing with Richard Allan and the rest of the team at Harris Oceanside, who listened to our needs, answered all our questions, and helped us arrive at just the right terms for the perfect vehicle for us, a 2016 next-generation Chevy Volt. This is an awesome car which we continue to marvel at, packed with smart features which come standard. It's as complex and capable a vehicle as you could want, yet wonderfully simple to operate and it drives like a dream. Best of all, we haven't yet used a drop of gas or emitted any noxious fumes since leaving the dealership. We just plug it in when we get home and it's ready to go when we take off next time. Clearly the age of electric vehicles has arrived and the Volt is everything one could hope for... and a lot more. With the clean energy vehicle incentives in place, now was the time for us to take the plunge and we're delighted that we did. -- Alan Wilson, Gabriola

The vehicle we were looking for!!!!

What a great bunch of people that work here. Friendly,professional,helpful and straight talkers. It was time for a newer vehicle and we were at many dealers on the island (7). We pulled into the lot and sat in a vehicle, which was going to be a settlement vehicle. That,s when Terry came up to us and asked us what is was we were looking for. "An Impala" was our answer and he said.." give me a minute there is one in the back lot being clean it just came in" A few minutes later he rounded the corner with a beautiful 2014 Impala. A great test ride and easy bargaining on the trade in and will the car sits in our driveway. The dealership is a beautiful place ,open and friendly, and all the people we dealt with were helpful, friendly and answered all our questions. No pressure and not one negative feeling. Will go back here when it is time to look at another vehicle. Thanks to all.

We have been dealing with Andy Lancaster for many years. Since he has been at Oceanside Chev Olds in Parksville, B.C. we have purchased two Buick Enclasves 2010 and 2012. Although we live in West Kelowna, B.C. we travelled to Parksville on Vancouver Island because we know we will receive the best service and price possible. For example: our last Buick purchase totally beat our expectations as I have been suffering with health issues and Andy and Richard delivered our new car and picked up the two vehicles (one being an almost new Cruze LT that we also purchased at Oceanside). This is no drive down the road. It is an overnight deliver. Many thanks guys - see you next car purchase. Brian & Thelda McI

The experience from start to finish was smooth and informative. Richard continually communicated the details of the sale as it progressed as he had to find the vehicle for me first. The vehicle came just as Richard described it, it was everything that I asked for! I bought a 2010 3/4 tonne Chev Savanah Van and I was shocked how well it drove, definately the nicest cargo van I have driven!

We do and will continue to highly recomend Oceanside. This is our second new car from them and I am sure not the last, a very special thanks to Andy. Brian and Thelda McIlwaine

Today 19\May\2011 I went car hunting, and had the pleasure of meeting a young salesman Harlem Brooks, what a joy it was to doing business with him. I very seldom give praise to car salesmen as they for most part are very pushy. when I’m interested in buying I go prepared to brush off any aggressive sale pitch and get out of there pretty fast. So what a pleasant surprise I had waiting for me, I was hardly on the lot more than four minutes when this young salesman approached the wife and I, introduced himself. I told him what I was looking for and price range he immediately set out to do just that and not only showed us the vehicles in our price range but went out of his way to make us feel comfortable and at ease. The three vehicles that I indicated I was interested in he explained each one in depth and what each one had for options, and gave us the feeling that if it took all day for the wife and I to make the right choice then he was willing to do just that, something that is seldom heard of these days. It’s usually let's get this one sold so I can get on to my next customer, I can truly say it was a pleasure being in your lot today, something I don’t relish. (When in search for a new vehicle). Mr. Harlem, was pleasant ,informative, courteous, and knew his vehicles. He was very helpful in all aspects of our transition to our new vehicle, it was a pleasure doing business with him. I cannot end this without saying, all the people we dealt with today and that includes Ryan (Sales Manager) were exceptionally courteous and helpful,!! so kudos must go to Harris Oceanside Chevrolet Buick GMC for having such a great team of personal on site.

Stress free purchase

We were looking for a new vehicle but had not quite decided on a particular one. Ryan, our salesman, listened to our needs and wants and helped us select the vehicle for us and negotiated a good price for our trade in. He was a pleasure to deal with and has been great on after purchase contact. We would not hesitate to recommend him if you in the market for a vehicle.

Went above and beyond.

We had a few recent bad experiences with car dealerships. Les, within minutes of hearing our story went right to work to find a vehicle and the government incentives we were looking for. We purchased a new 2018 Volt. Les was very knowledgeable about the vehicle and we appreciated his honesty and his integrity. Ashley, in the finance office was a tremendous help and super friendly. We would highly recommend Harris Oceanside Chevrolet.

After sales service with Les Horne was a thoughtful process making sure I understand all operations of the new technology and operation of the truck. plus making himself available anytime onward if I had and questions. Also need to add that the finance dept. was speedy as possible, making me feel at ease, relaxed through the process.

The Best of the Best

This is by far the best Dealership I have dealt with and I have dealt with quite a few, From the time you walked through the door until the end of the sale you were made to feel as though you had been to a first class Hotel with Gary being the Matre-De and Richard the Head Waiter, nothing was too much trouble for them, and the supporting staff were just as professional. All in all an excellent experience anMany thanks to everybody.

Exceptional service

I have just purchased a brand new Chevy Volt from Harris Oceanside. We had the pleasure of dealing with Ryan, and later on Steve, who both went above and beyond to make sure we got the car we wanted for the price we wanted. They made it very clear that our business mattered to them and that they wanted us to leave as happy customers. Despite an unfortunate issue with the car (which was through no fault of the dealership and quickly rectified), we did leave happy and completely satisfied with our service. From providing better prices to other dealers that we were considering, to handling our issue with great haste and care, I can only say that I am very impressed with my overall experience. Steve especially went the extra mile to make up for any inconvenience that may have resulted from our car issue. They took what could have been a huge headache and made it a positive experience. I have also had a long history of dealing with their service centre through work, and as usual I can only say good things about the care I received from there as well.

Relief and Thankful

Most of us think that, car dealerships arent the best options. We hear so many bad story outhere that we feel buying private is the way to go these days. I was one of them, trying to save a buck to make ends meet. 3 months ago i bought a car through facebook and thought i was getting a good deal, instead i got myself with this nightmare of a car. A week ago, after my car broke on me, again, i was on the side of the road thinking of my options. I decided to end this vicious circle of buying " lemon" cars and really wanted to feel safe in the vehicul i carry my children in. I decided to call my friend Ryan Swaile and see what he can do. It was 4pm and even tho they were closing in a couple of hours, Ryan without hesitation came to my rescue, on the side of the road, to pick me up. On the way to the dealership, we talked about what i need and financial options i had. Once there, i was given the royal treatment, they already knew my situations and as a team they made it so easy for me to go through the process of selecting the right car for me. Once i had decided on what i thought was the right car, we took it for a ride. I never once, felt rushed into anything and they went above and beyond to get me this car and match my monthly budget. Not only they stayed open later for me to make sure i was in a safe affordable vehicul that match my needs, they even took care of my car on the side of the highway! I am a proud owner of a car with warranty for the next 6 years! What a relief! I wish i did that earlier to save me the trouble of worrying to make it to work! Thanks to Ryan, Steve and Cheryl for their amazing service, you guys worked so hard to make sure i had a safe reliable vehicul. I will defenetely recommend your location to anyone that is looking for good trustworthy car dealership. Mari

Great experience

I originally saw the posting for my car on Craigslist. Ryan was quick to answer my questions and provide the information I requested. I came over from Vancouver and he was quick to offer to pick me up from the ferry terminal so I could test drive the car, which was fantastic. He took the time to go over the service record in detail and was very transparent throughout the whole process.

My entire family has gone to Ryan to buy our vehicles and when it came time for me to buy my first car Ryan seemed like right salesman for the job. He made it painless and easy. He was respectful of my budget. He gave me options and never pushed anything on me. He presented his case for each car and let me make my own decision instead of pushing.
