"680 mile reach .....for the best price and service!"
Bought a 2010 Nissan Armada Platinum online from New Orleans. Ted Payne is the internet sales representative I had initial contact with.
He was very attentive and professional. He did what it took to make the sale and was truly interested in making the best deal he could for me. He took over 50 photos of the Armada and sent them to me and even took additional ones I asked for specifically. After sales terms were agreed upon I flew into Tampa and Ted picked me up at the airport (mind you on his day off). We drove back to the dealer where the car was being detailed again and being stored inside out of the elements.
He made sure the car was in tip top shape (even though I had a 680 mile drive back home). The Armada was better than expected. He even paid for the wireless headphones out of his own pocket for the DVD system. Transaction was seamless and I was out of there in less than an hour with all paperwork complete. Entire staff was great. Would buy a car again from them and will also recommend. Ted also made several follow up calls ensuring we liked OUR new Armada (bought a used 2010). Thanks Jenkins Nissan. And by the way I know I got a phenomenal deal on the Armada as they are priced lower than everyone (even private party in my case).

"3 hour drive for a perfect and seamless sales experience"
I never thought I would purchase a vehicle over the internet, but in my search I found Rita at Jenkins Nissan. After some interaction over the net, I found the perfect vehicle for me, the Juke SL. After selecting the Juke, color, and all the things I wanted in a new vehicle, I drove from West Palm Beach, FL to Lakeland, FL (3 hours) and the sales transaction and experience was perfect and seamless.
I am learning day by day the new technology of my new vehicle with the help of Rita and look forward to every day of the fantastic experience of my Juke.

"Drove from PINELLAS COUNTY.....FANTASTIC DEAL!"
Came all the way out from Pinellas County because of Jenkins' large inventory and competitive prices; left with a fantastic deal on a brand new 2012 Altima 2.5 SL?a deal that I could not have gotten in Pinellas or Hillsborough Counties. Jason Percy was my salesperson, and he was accommodating and helped me find the car/price combination that I was most happy with, which included generous Nissan rebates and financing offers. Never felt pressured to buy, or that a fast one was being pulled on me. Recommended, a pleasant experience overall.
"She DARED TO COMPARE Jenkins to others........"
2.27.2013 I recently purchased a Nissan Maxima at Jenkins Nissan. After visiting the other two Nissan dealerships in Clearwater, I feel blessed to have met Rita Garrison and Jimmy Malvasia at Jenkins. After several phone conversations, I knew that I had to meet Rita. Her approach was so different than that of the other dealerships I'd visited. I decided to take a drive from Pinellas county to Lakeland. I first met Rita, who was so kind and real. She introduced me to Jimmy Malvasia, who made me feel very comfortable. Jimmy never made me feel pressured as I had experienced at the other dealerships. He was very kind and sincere. I feel that Jimmy listened to me and my needs. I went in to take a look at a white Nissan Altima and ended up leaving with a Crimson Black Nissan Maxima....and I love it!. It took me several hours to decide on the perfect color. Jimmy had such patience with me. I also want to add that after researching the market and visiting other dealerships, Jenkins had the best price around. The other dealership in Clearwater told me that Jenkins couldn't sell me the Maxima at the price in which they had quoted me. I can honestly say that I walked out of Jenkins after purchasing my Maxima for exactly what Rita had quoted me on the phone. I can't say enough good things about Jenkins Nissan and the wonderful staff. There is no doubt, I'll purchase my next Maxima from Jenkins Nissan. Thanks Rita and Jimmy!
".....SAVED THE BEST FOR LAST! 10.22.12"
My wife and I started our search for our Nissan products over a week ago contacting three different locations. We visited the dealer in Brandon and was shown everything EXCEPT what we were looking for! And after about two hours, left without a deal and was very dissatisfied. I contacted two other locations Tampa and New Port Richey. It's been seven days and I still haven't heard anything from them. My wife didn't want to give up and said let's check with Jenkins Nissan this will be the last one we check she said........"We saved the best for last".
From the first contact with Rita we were treated with the respect we deserved she introduced us to Jason Percy and WOW. I am in the sales business and this is the best sales consultant I have ever seen PERIOD!!! He made us feel right at home, no pressure, worked with us all the way, gave us options others hadn't even thought of and after going beyond the call of duty...I think we left the dealer around 11:00 p.m. with not one but two vehicles at what we wanted as a payment.
We came back the next day to finish up the books and there was Jason? Eager to jump in and take care of us even after his part was done, he noticed the detailing wasn't up to "his" standards sent both of our cars to the back to be re-detailed again and made sure EVERY need was met before we left the building.
In closing I want to commend the work of all the staff at Jenkins Nissan from start to finish you have made my family very happy and have earned our business from now on and we our telling everyone we know YOU ARE THE BEST!!!
Thank you all,

"...really worked hard to help us!"
My wife and I had a great experience at Jenkins Nissan. Jimmy Malvasia worked with us all day as well as the finance dept. to get us into a new Altima. Jimmy was very patient and Knew his products very well - I am going to recomend Jimmy and Jenkins Nissan to everyone that is in the market for a new car.
"DROVE FROM MAITLAND"
Jenkins Nissan is the best dealership to shop for a car. My fiance and I had an awesome experience, specially because Rita Garrison and Hamid Hanzaz worked with us and the results were phenomenal. It was worth it to drive from Maitland to Lakeland. I am so happy we went there, because now I am driving my Nissan Altima and I love it. If you need a car, do not hesitate to visit Jenkins Nissan. Go Jenkins!!!!!
"My satisfacton was their TOP PRIORITY!"
I bought my 2012 Nissan Altima coupe at Jenkins Nissan. Pat C. was the salesman that helped me when I went to make my purchase. My satisfaction was his top priority in purchasing this vehicle. It made buying a car so much easier to have a salesman be there to make sure you are satisfied with your purchase rather than just selling you a car just to make money.
"WILLINGNESS TO HELP"
We got a Sentra from Jenkins and thanks to Rita Garrison and her willingness to step out of her normal area of online sales, she was so wonderful to work with us and get us set up with someone to help meet our needs. Even through the buying process she consistently would check on us and made sure we were well informed as to what was available to us. I wasn¿t totally in the market to buy that day, but her willingness to help the way she did and the salesperson we dealt with swayed me to get the car. If you need a car, definitely go see Rita or catch her online.
".....made my experience perfect!"
Rita was wonderfull to work with. She even drove my vehicle to me in Tampa at my place of employment. She was awsome at getting all my needs met and I will be going back to that dealership to purchase my next car.
Thank you Rita for making my experience perfect.
"My dream car and .....perfect salesman!"
I purchased my Dream Car Friday night with Mr. Payne, The car is exactly what I expected and wanted.
Not to mention, I have a strong phobia to sales men, particular auto- salesmen, as my X is a RV saleman for 15+ years, and I just can't do the "normal saleman approach" I must say this experience was beyond wonderful! Between my sister and I - we have over 1500 friends and they all got to see a pic of my car and a comment about Mr. Payne. I got my last Nissan at Chapel Hill and the one before that at Brandon, Well as long as Mr. Payne is there my next Nissan will be from Lakeland too!!!! Thank you for having a mixture of salesmen.
He was perfect for me!
"FANTASTIC CUSTOMER RELATIONS"
I had a fantastic experience purchasing my 2012 Nissan Titan from Jenkins. Ted Payne helped greatly, took the time to get a deal worked out for me while being in a rough spot being upside down with rough credit. I reffered a good friend of mine to see them for her new Altima, and a week later I randomly received a refferal check for $50. Absolutely fantastic customer relations people, they are the ones to go too!
"NO GIMICS.....JUST A GREAT EXPERIENCE!!!"
I worked with Rita and Mike Barnes at Jenkins and had a great experience. Rita was very detailed in the quote she emailed me which was very helpful in making my decision to purchase a new Pathfinder. Mike was great when I got to the dealership, he was very knowledgable about the Pathfinders, giving me confidence in working with him. There was no haggling, no negotiations, no gimics, it was a great experience! He has been also been very helpful since my purchase helping me to get information on accessories available for the pathfinder and ordering them on my behalf. Mike even rode an hour home with me to pick up the vehicle I was trading so I didn't have to make a second trip!!!
"AMONG THE BEST"
Well Let me start of by say that the staff that my wife and I delt with were among the best. First off we came in to this dealership from the start Mario took care of my wife and I completely. This man stayed at work past 9:00 PM to bring the price of a 2012 Altima (20th edition) down to a point to be honest I looked at my wife and said WTH (what the heck)? Over the next 3 days we looked around and and acually walked out of automall. We came back to talk to Jenkins and ran into Ms.Rita, and let me tell you if you want a awesome person to deal with, this woman right here is amazing. My wife and I have a very enjoyable time with her.(KID IN THE STREET!!) HAHA I do that randomly to my wife now. We ended up with a NEW car that was acually less than a used one 3 years older. Thank you Jenkins for all of your hard work.
"Second time customer"
This is my second vehicle from Jenkins Nissan. My salesman, Fred Knight was very helpful and knew exactly what I was looking for in a new vehicle. He made the purchasing process go very smoothly. Glen McGuire also made sure I was happy with my purchase. He made sure that the financing process went quickly and smoothly. I never felt pressured, which is common at other dealerships I have been to. I haven't really had much service done to my vehicles, as they have been new, but I have received $5.00 oil changes on both vehicles. This has been done in a timely manner and my vehicle is always very clean when I get it back. The service department has never tried to sell me something I did not need. I would highly recommend this dealership and these people to my friends and family.
"Recommend her to family and friends"Recently purchased a new vehicle. I live 50 miles from the dealership. I can honestly say that Rita Garrison is the only reason I made the drive and purchase. She was by far the nicest, most genuine, helpful, honest car sales person I have ever known. I would happily do business with her again and would have no hesitation to recommend her to family and friends.
Our experience on purchasing our Rogue was very good. Most of the time when someone purchases a vehicle they spend too much time at the dealership but that was not the case with Michael Barnes. He was very time conscience and at this stage of life time is very important. The service was excellent. We would recommend Mike and Jenkins Nissan to our friends. Thank you for the GREAT service. Have a great day. Debbie A.
Mario Dorado was the salesman. I give him an A+ for product knowledge and salesmanship. I would recomend this Nissan Dealership and Mario to all my friends, matter of fact my friend went there and purchased a new Altima the next day. Thanks Mario!!!!!
"Listen to real mpg from a 2013 Altima owner:"
Rita,Just wanted to let you know we just took a trip to S.C. and averaged 43.4 mpg in our 2013 Altima. We also get around 35 in townWe absolutely love our car.D.P.
"Buddy's a keeper"
I avoid dealerships at all costs because of how uncomfortable the sales people make me feel. I've never dealt with anyone that wasn't pushy or arrogant until coming to Jenkin's Nissan. On arrival I was greeted by Buddy Allman. What a delightful change to the usual obnoxious salesmen found at most dealerships. He was very kind and extremly knowlegable. What I appreciated most of all was that he made me feel like an old friend. Never once did I feel like I was only there to help him make a sale. After my experience with Buddy, I will never go to another dealership. He is a keeper!
