Les was great to deal with on this sale

If you want a no bullshit sale, all the cards on the table kind of salesman. Les is your guy. I contacted him in regards to a truck they had on the lot, he referred me to a same truck just slightly different options to better suit my needs as our conversation proceeded. Communication was excellent the whole way through the purchase. I am from North Vancouver and the only day I could make it over was on a Sunday. Les, Cheryl and Steve took the time to meet with me on the official test drive (not knowing if I would confirm the purchase we had lined up) They were very easy to work with and explained and answered all my questions. I would highly recommend them for your purchase.

Yet another great car buying experience!

Another huge thanks to the Harris Oceanside team in Parksville, B.C. for a wonderful 3rd car buying experience in just a short year. Especially to “Les the car guy”, who has never worked harder than he did tonight to get my daughter into a very safe (and beautiful) AWD Buick Encore so this mom has much less worry when she drives to University every day in all different kinds of weather! The whole team at Oceanside has always been friendly, courteous, informative and extremely humorous (one word for you Les.....SUBWOOFER!!!!!!) LOL 😂, if you want a good story when you buy a car from Les, just ask him what that tether strap in the trunk is for and how to monitor your spare tire’s car pressure. This really is a “family atmosphere” and this will always be our family’s first stop when looking to buy a car and/or get the best trade in value for our used vehicles. Also, a huge shout out to Mitch in the Service department (what a great guy and so very helpful), make sure to stop in and say Hi! to him and his team and you’ll see exactly what I mean. Thank you again to everyone and I am sure you will see us again sooner rather than later. Best wishes, Bri and Brooke

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!

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.

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

Purchase of our dream truck ...Les Horne your the greatest.

We appreciated the expertise of Les and Ashley. Their approach was one of knowledge and not aggressive (which we never respond to.) Their patience and helpfulness knew no limits.. We would recommend Les and Ashley to all our friends. Les always went the extra mile for us. Caring and kind. Very considerate of our time and travel for appointments to do paperwork. Les you made our experience almost painless and quite joyful. Thanks you once again. You are our #1...Salesman and now a friend. P.S. We found our camper and it looks pretty on the new truck!!!!!

'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!

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".

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....

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.

BEST SALES AND DEALERSHIP ON VANCOUVER ISLAND

Trading our favourite car for a practical and as it turns out, equally nice truck- this was a big ordeal of looking, researching, many hours of ferries and travel to several dealerships in the area. The purchase is major for our finances- and we've had a few bad experiences recently- notably Coastline Mazda and Bill Howich Dodge. Between outright lies and BS- we weren't looking forward to another salesman. WELL. We went to Harris Parksville and were met with friendly, honest, non-schmoozey staff- from our salesman Ryan Swailes, to secretary playing with our two year old, to Ashley Henry literally working overtime to try to find us the best possible interest rate- which for us was a make or break issue. Manager Steve Peters came in and worked numbers to get us best trade in price, and never lost patience with our questions, pros and cons. We live on Cortes Island, and the day was turned into a happy one, given time to think privately, and expedited signing/admin service so we could catch our ferry. Thank you SO MUCH for a pleasant end to a season of boring budgeting, planning and shopping. :) Odette Auger, Arron Elliott.

We have been looking for several months for just the right truck on line and at lots...On the long weekend my husband found what we were looking for on the Oceanside GM web site... we went and took a good look at the GMC Sierra Nevada 2010, however the lot was closed ... so my husband emailed for specs.. Ryan answered our email and it was set that I would be in Tuesday morning to see about a trade in.....Ryan took time in his day to drive the truck to where my husband was working so that he could take it for a test drive, this was really appreciated. Ryan was kind and thoughtful during the sales process and our end result is the truck we really like! Lana and Trevor Watson

Customer service appreciatted

It was fairly obvious from the beginning of my dealings with Ryan that he had my best interest at heart. We reviewed what was available on the lot and Ryan was very knowledgeable in terms what each vehicle had to offer. Once I determined what suited my needs the best, Ryan, I believe pursued the best deal possible involving my trade. There were more expensive units on the lot but Ryan did not try to upsell me which I appreciated. In todays marketplace it's nice to leave a dealership confident that you were treated fairly and not taken advantage of. Believe that happens elsewhere I can assure you. When I'm asked to recommend someone it's going to be Ryan at Oceanside. Thank you Les Romanchuk

We came back to Harris Oceanside dealership again because of their exceptional service (we live in Brentwood Bay, Sannich) we received 18 months ago when we leased a car from this dealership. During the past year we had checked in a couple of times with Ryan since then as we wanted to purchase a new truck to complement our change to a larger trailer. By the time we actually felt it might be the right time to do this, Ryan pretty much knew the items on our "wish list" exactly and showed us a vehicle which actually exceeded our requirements. On top of the great discounts GMC were giving on their 2013 vehicles, Ryan and Steve put together a deal we just couldn't turn down. Cheryl was very helpful in getting all the paperwork sorted quickly and provided straightforward, clear options for warranties etc.. The team works well together but we have to give a special shout out to Ryan who takes the time to listen to customer preferences and does his best to make them happen.

Having some knee problems, I was having to give up my manual Mazda Miata for an automatic transmission car. I wasn't sure which brand of convertible I wanted to purchase and I had already visited other dealerships to see what was out there. I visited Harris Parksville Oceanside and met Salesman Ryan Swailes who was very pleasant, knowledgeable, as well as instrumental in helping me determine which type of car I really wanted. I was extremely impressed with Ryan taking the time to ask me thorough and thoughtful questions which certainly helped me focus, and make the right decision as to the make of car I truly desired. After reflection of Ryan's questions, I knew I wanted another Miata however it had to be an automatic transmission. At the time, no Miatas were on his lot for me to look at. However, Ryan had kept me in mind, and I promptly received a call from Ryan a couple of days later letting me know one was available. And so after an examination of the car and taking it on a long test drive, we began negotiations. I am pleased to say that I received a generous trade-in allowance for my older Miata. I would also like to point out that Ryan worked very hard during our negotiations and that he, his Manager Steve Peters, and myself arrived at a satisfactory agreement with which I am very pleased. I am now the happy owner of once again, a Mazda Miata. Because of this great experience with Ryan Swailes and his Manager Steve Peters, plus the Service staff at Harris Parksville, I also look forward to having my Miata serviced at this dealership.

I am probably one of the older customers, being 85 this year, so may have a somewhat different view than younger patrons. When Ryan suggested leasing I became interested because it provides me with little to be reponsible for in the ongoing upkeep and the option of keeping the vehicle or returning it after three years, depending on the situation at thet time. My objectives were to get the new vehicle without exhaustive searching so am not well able to comment on the relatiove merits of the cost of the lease, which seemed fair to me as presented by Ryan. Ryan and all the staff I met were courteous and helpful, demonstrating competency in their jobs. I am pleased with the car and look forward to much trouble-free driving. All in all they made what can be a stressful experience for someone such as myself about as easy as it gets. I have no problem in giving them my unqualified recommendation to prospective future customers.

We were actually on vacation at Parksville, when we walked into the dealership by chance to see if a Verano was available for a test drive. It was not. He arranged to have a vehicle driven from the mainland overnight and kept us updated of the progress of this. After our test drive my husband's blood sugar took a dip during discussions. Ryan demonstrated genuine concern and assisted us to deal with it. His approach was professional but came across as more than just sales "hype". He couldn't do enough to ensure our purchase was trouble free. Delivery of the vehicle to Victoria was appreciated as we were towing our trailer back the same day. Ryan even took the time to introduce us to the delivery driver which was very reassuring. The car was waiting for us safe and sound in our driveway when we arrived home. An unexpected holiday momento!

We were very happy with the way Ryan took all of our rather complicated needs seriously and he worked very hard to come up with a deal that would satisfy them and still be within our price range. The rest of the staff that we worked with were just as pleasant and friendly as Ryan. We came away with a car that we really like, and a good feeling about this dealership.

Hello, Last October Ryan Swailes helped me purchase my new Chev Aveo. After a particularly bad experience with another dealership I went to Oceanside where I met Ryan. Ryan went above and beyond to make me feel understood and helped me purchased a car more suitable for my needs. Both Ryan and the entire dealership have made me feel very welcome. I am from the Comox Valley and would highly recommend Oceanside and Ryan to anyone looking to buy a car. Thank you. Linda from Courtenay

This is the second vehicle we have purchased from Ryan and he has been very helpful in helping us find what we were looking for. We still have our 2006 Impala and continue to get it serviced at Ocenside. The 2011 silverado is just the truck we were looking for and find it is a joy to drive, especially on the long haul to Arizona. Thanks Ryan we will be back IF we ever decide to trade the Impala

We recently purchased a 2011 Chev Cruze. Our sales experience was excellent. Ken meticulously took us through all physical and operational features of the vehicle. Our purchase experience with all staff exceeded our expectations from our arrival until we drove away with our new vehicle. As happens sometimes, we experienced an emissions warning at ~ 110 km. Your service group ( Richard S, Lou, and Chris S) handled this problem very professionally to our great satisfaction. We also own a 2003 Chev Tahoe (purchased from you) which has been exclusively serviced by your dealership, again, to our great satisfaction. At your new facility opening, I told Tom Harris that in this facility he had the best dealer organization in my lifetime experience. I have repeated this statement to Micheal Harris recently. We did not complete the Google review because we do not have a Google account and we do not want one.

To who it may concern, A few months ago May19\2011 I was in the market for a new vehicle and went to Oceanside Gm Parkville, and dealt with two very well informed employees Ryan and Harlem, and as such in the end bought the 2011,Terrain,which I'm still very happy with. A couple of weeks ago Approx 07 \May\2011 my wife decided she now wanted to buy a new vehicle, but wanted a small truck. To be honest I was not in favor of her decision, so I told her if she really wanted a small truck that she would have to do it herself but had my blessing, I was actually hoping that she would not be able to make a deal. Well to my surprise within 1½ hrs there she is driving into our driveway with Harlem in the passenger seat, and requesting me to give it a test run which I did, I was impressed with her decision and told her to now go and close the deal, hoping that she may fail, but to my surprise by the next day she had a deal, and that was all due to three main charters' Ryan, Harlem, and Steve, which I met during the closing which of course needed my signature. So once again I must congratulate all three for their manner in which they conducted themselves during this trying time to make sure that my wife would leave the dealership happy with her purchase. And as we all know when ones wife is happy, life at home can be very pleasant. There professional attitude, and patience thoughout this ordeal, made my wife come away very pleased and happy with her purchase. I would be remise if I did not mention Cheryl, whom I had the pleasure of meeting during my Paper and signature part. She was very thorough and explained everything in simple and understanding language, but was not pushy or over-bearing for that we thank her. To sum up, everyone we meet at Oceanside and that includes the ones who work in the back end, make you feel at home. You can be rest assured when the time comes to once again look for a new car it will be at Oceanside GM Parkville. May all of you be around for a long,long time, you are a credit to Mr. Harris. My wife and I thank you for the experience. Jack n' Beverly
