Bought a 2017 Nissan Rogue SL from this dealership; Pete James really did a good job of setting the car up for a test drive on short notice and making the actual purchase process comfortable. He and Kristen Efurd gave some really helpful answers over email in the days after the sale, and I also had...

Went to to begin the process of getting into another lease since my current was coming to an end. Had no intentions on getting into a new car that day, but couldn't pass up what Zack Krishtalka (sales consultant) was offering. He listened to what I needed and wanted and was able to make a deal....

I had the best car buying experience ever when I purchased a 2013 Chevrolet Cruze from Chris Cantwell! Chris provided a first-rate experience, he was professional and polite, he listened to me, he was very attentive to my needs, he was well-versed, and I didn't feel pressured or rushed. He made...

I had a great car buying experience (that doesn’t happen often).. I purchased a used Tundra. I could see that they already had the car reasonably priced, and were transparent regarding their pricing when I asked further details. Chris Cantwell was my consultant and was very knowledgeable and...

Was looking to get the best deal I could find on a 2019 Jetta R Line as part of the model year end closeout sale. Happy to say that Jadyn Anderson was able to get me into not just a great vehicle, but an upgraded vehicle at the exact price point that I could pay. I never imagined I’d score such a...

My family and I have been doing business with Crown Toyota for over 20 years. We recently bought a used Sienna and couldn't be happier. Tristan, Zac and Randy always take great care of us. I always recommend them to people looking for a new or good preowned Toyota.

I bought my used 2014 F-150 from here a few months ago. I payed in cash and they had no problem with that. They were flexible with the price and I got a fair deal. I was impressed as well with their thorough vehicle Inspection process and the friendliness of my sales rep. I was unimpressed with the...

Bought a vehicle from them on Valentine's Day. My salesman was David Stewart and I cannot recommend him enough! This was my first time buying from an actual dealer and he and the entire crown staff made the process easy and stress free. This is the BEST place to buy a car from! They are fair, kind,...

Recently bought a Toyota RAV4 XSE from Justin at this location. Super nice guy. Low pressure, which we appreciated! The experience was much better than anticipated. He even took the time to show us all the features, and scheduled our first maintenance appointment. Very convenient.

My 3rd vehicle from them and I drive all the way from KC. They are probably one of the fewer car dealerships that are still being honest with their customers and do business with integrity in mind. I understand profit comes first but at the same time honesty can be part of it as well.

I walked out of one dealership and spoke with a couple of others before calling Josh Abel, who was referred to me by a family member.

After a bad experience at another Toyota dealer, Crown Toyota was a breath of fresh air! Even though they didn’t have the vehicle we wanted on the lot they made it happen that day. We are now the proud owners of a Sequoia TRD Pro! Our salesman Joe H. was wonderful, along with everyone else we...

Most people immediately discount the Generation Z employees in today’s workforce. The negative connotations that come with being in that age range are often very true. Well, I am proud to say that I have found the ultimate exception to that rule. Crown Toyota in Lawrence Kansas has broke the...

Josh at Crown Toyota was super helpful and friendly during my process of buying a car. Never felt any pressure, no aggressive sales techniques, just a good overall experience.

I knew what I was after and Nile was easy to work with. I did my research before hand but Nile pulled up KBB and let me see the trade in value. Super easy and no pressure. Best part is the paper work was handled by Hawkeye himself (Chris) :)
