Connell Nissan takes pride in servicing our customers, and looks forward to including you in the Connell family of happy customers!

Here is a brief look at some recent reviews from popular online rating sites and emails we've received:

"I had another excellent buying experience at Connell Nissan again. I purchased a 2011 Sentra from them 2 years ago and I bought a 2013 Altima SV last night with them again. Mark is the best General Manager ever. He was able to give me one of the very best deal. I am 53 years old and I have had purchased at least 24 cars in the past and I have not seen any General Manager takes cares of his customers like Mark. His sales staff are knowledge and friendly. Christopher was my salesperson and he takes his time to go over everything with me. He was excellent . I live near Cerritos Nissan and I choose to drive to Costa Mesa because of hoe they conduct their business. I would recommend them to all my friends and relatives."

"Wanted to buy a new GTR for my birthday and didn't have much time. Connell had the best selection and was worth the drive. They had exactly the car I wanted and had run my credit, got my approved, took me for a test drive and sold me the car at a great price in about 45 minutes. The GM Mark met me and took care of me just as I asked and even had the car delivered to my house. The sales guy Gilbert had everything ready and the finance manager was incredibly fast and efficient. I'm used to good service ar MBZ and Porsche but never bought a Nissan before and was pleasantly surprised to be taken care of the way I was. In addition, it's an unbelievable car. Very happy."

"I just wanted you to know that Mark Nutter should be employee of the century! We purchased our Nissan Quest from Connell Nissan 13 years ago and always brought it into Mark until we moved away 4 1/2 years ago and we've just moved back to Huntington Beach and headed straight back to Mark at Connell because of the wonderful service he always gave us! So good to be back where someone really cares like Mark!!!"

"I had an excellent buying experience with Ryan at this dealership. They were very fair on the value of my trade in and went above and beyond to make a great deal. Everyone at the dealership was cordial, helpful and knowledgeable. It was the most pleasant buying experience I have had anywhere. I would highly recommend them."

 "I have never been a loyal customer of any company. I am now a customer of Connell Nissan for life. They have surpassed every expectation from the time we bought our Murano to the present. Because of Connell, I will always and I mean always come to them to purchase a vehicle in the future... even if I am not considering a Nissan. I can't say enough of their staff. I called on a Sunday and John still made an appointment for service even though it was not his department. He then called me to keep me informed on the status and we had our vehicle back by the next afternoon."

No Games *** Respectful Service *** Transparent Fair Pricing

I am a busy financial services professional that deals with other people's money all the time. I pride myself on saying what I do and doing what I say... On advice of my Tax Attorney was told I needed to buy a new car before year's end. Started the dreaded process of shopping for a 2012 Xterra S before Thanksgiving.

Tried working with 3 other dealerships.. received great internet quotes that suddenly disappeared when I tried to make an appointment to purchase the vehicle. Went to Cornell Nissan's website and unalike other dealers, their site listed the prices and options on their vehicles in stock. Found the exact Xterra I wanted and sent a request to work with the fleet manage. Received a call back from Flavio Villasenor within the hour. We do a little back and forth friendly negotiating over phone on some additional options I wanted...Flavio confirmed our agreed on price and I submitted my Financial Application online. Application approved within hours...I made an appointment to sign the papers the following day.

When I arrived most the paperwork was pre completed....took less than and an hour to complete the transaction.
If you are shopping for a new Nissan, save yourself a lot of time and effort...Give Flavio a call...he will make the process easy and you will receive great service at a more than fair price!

"Purchased a 2012 Nissan Rogue from Connell Nissan. From start to finish, outstanding service! Ryan Studley found the exact model I was looking for, Gilbert Fierros went to great lengths to get financing all taken care of and even found extra rebates that weren't there initially, and Elise Ranauro even managed to find a huge bow to place on the car for my wife at the time of delivery. Wonderful service all around, from the vehicle search all the way through to delivery, Connell Nissan staff truly went above and beyond. Would highly recommend this dealership!"

"Great dealership, I purchased new in 2008 a Altima Coupe and have both my nissans serviced there. Good mechanics, good service writers, and Candy and Lillie the cashiers are friendly, accurate and extremely helpful with all your concerns, and questions. I would buy from them again.  And of course when it comes to purchases the people to deal with are Mark, and Elise Ranauro."

"David McWherter with Connell Nissan went out of his way to find the exact truck that I wanted, he made this the best car buying experience I've ever had with any dealership.

"Did a 2 day Nissan Leaf rental through them to try out the car. Was hassle free and the car is awesome! They are looking at installing a rapid charger (30 min to 80% from empty) and are very forward thinking about electric cars. Would recommend if you're in the area and are looking at the Leaf!" 
   --Jeremy Whaling via Google Reviews

"We purchased our New 2001 Nissan Sentra and New 2009 Nissan Versa here. Their General Manager is the best in the business and his great customer service attitude runs from top down. Had previously purchased New cars from their sister Chevy dealership."

"Connell Nissan is awesome, I can't say enough good things about Ryan (salesmen) and Mike (Finance). These guys bent over backwards to help us and stayed late for us. They were very helpful and gave excellent customer service. I will be going to them for years to come. Mark and Wade were very nice and helpful as well."

"I purchased a new 2012 Nissan Altima from Connell in March, at an outstanding deal, thanks to Elise and Gilbert. Wade worked hard to get me the best financing, and I am quite pleased. I have returned twice for regularly scheduled service (oil change and tire rotation). I have always been treated with respect and a friendly smile. Everything is clearly explained ahead of time, and in terms I understand. The Service team offered us a shuttle ride to a local eatery while we waited. Complimentary hot coffee, and there are plenty of seats in the clean waiting room. My kids are always welcome here, and that is a huge bonus, as they go with me everywhere.

"Both of my lights were out on my rear license plate so I stopped in this past Saturday at 1:00 p.m. They asked if I had an appointment and I did not. They gave me an estimate of about $ 60.00. I waited less than an hour and my car was fixed and they didn't even charge me. My husband and I walked around the dealership and everyone was extremely friendly - they offered us cold drinks, "all you can eat tacos". I would recommend this dealership to anyone who needed service or a car. We dealt with Robert Gonzalez. His direct phone is 714-755-3310. He is the greatest guy ever. Call and make your appointment with him.

They definitely get five stars in my book!!!!

Robert said, "Just keep us in mind next time you're in the area!". You bet I will and I will recommend them to everyone.

Go Connell!!!! You rock...
