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) :)

I had a great experience at Crown. Zack K. was exceptionally helpful in helping me choose a vehicle and patiently explaining features/alternatives. In the end, I received a more-than-fair price on my car. The only odd thing is they don't do certification of used vehicles (which is the default at...

I can't believe I'm leaving a 5-star review for a car dealer...these people have dashed all my preconceived negative notions about car dealerships. We bought a used Lexus from Kegan Radcilff, who is one of the best salesman I've ever encountered (in any industry): prompt, intelligent, attentive,...

I had a great experience at Crown. The salesman, Josh Abel, couldn't be more helpful and helped me find the best car in my price range. I traded in my non-running car and they came to my place to tow it away. Earlier that day, i went to a different dealership, I won't say which one, that treated me...

After some bumps in the road, Toyota worked hard to make it right and that is what matters to me.

Bought a 2018 Tacoma and the experience was almost perfect. Email was the primary means of communication prior to visiting the dealership. I was able to walk on the lot, test drive the vehicle, and drive away in an hour and a half. One of the best experiences I've had for buying a used vehicle....

Very good experience. All the hard work was done via email, so when I showed up at the dealer, the truck was ready and so was the paperwork. My 2 local dealers would not meet their offer, so I drove an extra 30 minutes and saved $2200. I will return to Crown.

- Stan, CARGURUS

Myk was phenomenal to work with. I honestly had never bought a car from a dealership over the past 40 years. However, this experience was actually wonderful. I cannot recommend Crown Toyota enough.

Went to Crown Toyota after a poor experience at Legends Toyota. Was really impressed with Crown and Greg Henley. As a first time buyer, I was nervous and unsure of the process. Greg really knows his stuff, was easy to work with and personable, and took his time explaining everything to me. He made...

Van has been wonderful in communicating with me. He’s answered all my questions very quickly.

Very professional, low keyed selling. Their salesman Myk assisted me and he was fantastic. I would recommend this dealership to anyone looking to buy a car.
