    Plumbing new depths, eh Edmunds? Edmunds and Inside line used to be the best place for car reviews, specs, and lifesavers like TMV. What happened? What is this garbage?

    How much did Longo pay for this piece?

    Just in case someone thinks this is a commercial for Longo, it is not. I use to actually look forward to my service light turning on because I enjoy going to Longo so much. I have owned 2 Scion TC's and I am thinking of buying a FRS as soon as they throw in a turbo. Cant say enough good thinks about Longa and no, I don't work there or get anything for saying nice things about that.

    I used to work for Penske/Longo. Really nice place to work, and when I left I even got a letter in the mail from the GM saying I was welcome back any time. I can see the value in articles like this - we've learned plenty about what dealers NOT to go to in the LT blog (avoid anything in West LA unless you like paying 1000% more than you would at any other dealer and receiving horrible service) but very little about good dealers. We interacted with a number of dealers when buying a car recently, and there is a huge difference in quality out there. I feel it is within the mission of a website dedicated to helping consumers with buying cars to highlight the good guys, especially when the bad guys give the rest of the industry a bad name.

    We didn't have a gym when I worked there though. Nor a Verizon store. But the Starbucks people learned my drink preferences based on the weather so it was still pretty cool.

    Not saying that Longo are not a good place, but that is not the point .
    This is purely an ad. Nothing is being reviewed or tested. This article is just promoting the dealership.

    FYI i used Galpin via Edmunds (by the way the TMV was waaay too high) to buy my 2013 Miata CS. And Galpin was fantastic. But if Edmunds wrote a similar blurb about them it would still be an ad. The only way to make this not is to be fair to all the dealerships and rate them all in one article.

    That is a very good point desmolicious. I hope they do start reviewing stealerships, I mean dealerships. They are not created equal and most definitely don't treat everyone fair. I have nothing but nice things to say about Longo and nothing but bad things to say about all 3 dealerships in La Puente.

    I clicked into this "article" thinking it would describe Edmunds' experiences shopping, buying cars, or getting them serviced at this business. Instead it's just an ad. Thumbs down.
