Geoff tried to help me land a nice used vehicle but due to my size, there were no vehicles in my price range that worked. At the point where I divided that we could not do business, his courtesy and professionalism did not miss a beat. I felt bad that I could not make a purchase because he was so nice and responsive to my objectives. I made a friend and if I know of anyone looking for a vehicle I will recommend Geoff.

OH MY GOODNESS! I just had the most seamless, easy, exciting experience in purchasing my new car, thanks to Jeff Griffin! He made the entire process totally painless and went above and beyond to make sure that I was taken care of (and taught me so much while doing it) especially as I had started my whole car-search operation from out of town. Jeff made sure that I understood everything that I was signing and set up all the features in my car WITH me so that I knew how to do everything going forward. I could tell he had my back and assisted me in making each decision in my best interests the whole time and that I got an amazing price deal for my car; I really couldn't have asked for a better experience. Keep in mind - this is also DURING THE PANDEMIC and he made me feel so comfortable throughout. Thanks a million Jeff!! **Also, ringing the bell & having everyone in the dealership clap when I got to go out to my new car was quite fun (as well as seeing a giant bow on my car!)

Very pleasant.

We bought 3 Hyundai’s 8 years ago at your dealership and a used Dodge Stratus. Very happy with the cars that’s why we came back for our new 2020.. We just recommended our friends to Jeff Griffen and they bought a Santa Fe also yesterday. From what we remember we were told there are referral rewards to be given when recommending the dealership and salesperson. I hope we are not forgotten for referring you to our friends.

1st Class Car buying experience

Upon arriving at checkered flag Hyundai my wife and I were promptly greeted by our salesperson , Jeff Griffin. Jeff was welcoming and walked us through the process of buying a car at checkered flag. We loved the no haggle , no pressure process at checkered flag. Jeff was extremely helpful at putting us in the right car at a price point that we were both comfortable with. Jeff could have easily guided us into a new car or lease, but instead, laid out all options , including a low mileage used car, which we decided on. Jeff showed us the savings and the options of the used car and we are now extremely happy. Jeff made our entire buying experience first class . Jeff stayed late after closing and offered for us to take the car home overnight before buying. This was a great way to test drive and learn the options and feel of a car . We were in the sales room for a couple days because we were indecisive , Jeff was patient and guided us through the process and put us in the right car. The Genesis cars we test drove were all clean and flawless. It made it a tough decision . The Hyundai / Genesis brand is impressive to say the least, Genesis gives you that luxury feel and finish at a great savings. When Jeff Drive the car around with a red bow and a fresh detail my wife was all smiles . Jeff gave my wife and I a first class , luxury car buying experience. Thank you Jeff and Checkered Flag.

Hi! My name is Martene Hogan. I am a Virginia Beach native (yes, we exist!) I made the transition into the automotive business after 15 years in the restaurant industry, so customer service and taking care of my guest are my top priorities. After a horrible car accident forced me to find a new vehicle, I learned just how stressful the car buying process could be. I aim to provide a hassle free experience for all my guests by providing excellent customer service using Checkered Flag's FAST SIMPLE SMART process!

Kristi was really great. She walked me through the process, made sure to get my preference of what I want in a car, and was able to get me a good deal for it. I like that she tells me how it is upfront and doesn't try to hide anything. By doing so it makes me more comfortable buying/leasing a car from her. She was great and extremely helpful since this was my second time leasing a car from Hyundai. Would recommend talking with her.

Very professional , and felt completely at home. My son was actually buying the car. I was impressed that even though he arrived hrs before me, Tommy took his time with him and never pushed or rushed him into making any decisions about a purchase. Tommy worked with us for 3 days making sure he got just the right vehicle at a price that was right for my son. He test drove several vehicles in several price ranges and in different styles and makes. Tommy made sure we knew the pros and cons for each vehicle as they related to my sons wants and needs. We never felt like Tommy was pushing a vehicle on us, but gave us great options and gave us time to consider the merits of each vehicle. It was like we actually had a friend helping us select a vehicle- not a salesman. If you are in the market for new or used- do yourself a favor and ask for Tommy- he’s the BEST! My son purchased his vehicle and was so excited. We both left feeling like we got a great deal and made a friend in the process. Thank you Tommy!

It had been over 6 years since I last walked into a dealership with the intent of "maybe" purchasing a vehicle. The only adjectives that I can come up with for my total experience is as follows: 1- The Dealership Showroom Floor - Immaculate. 2 - The Dealership Staff - friendly and very professional. 3- My Sales Representative Geoff - Very Knowledgeable, listened well ( which was very important to me) and is nothing short of a miracle worker. Geoff walked me through the entire sales process like it was second nature to him. Geoff searched his inventory, found a vehicle based on the parameters that I gave him, we test drove it and in a few short hours I had the pleasure of walking to the front of the showroom and ringing the bell. For those of you who have not had that experience or don't know what I'm talkin about I would go to checkered flag Hyundai and try it out you won't be disappointed. P.S. forgot to mention the most important part of all I am now the proud owner of a Hyundai sonata thank you Geoff and staff!!!

I got a new car recently from Checkered Flag Hyundai thanks to my amazing daughter. I didn't know I was getting a new car, but my daughter worked with Martene, who helped to make the whole thing a surprise. (Seriously, if you are looking for a car, you need to ask for her!!!) I thought I was just getting an oil change, but my daughter was actually there doing the paperwork for my car. When I went to pick up my car, Martene handed me the keys to a Hyundai (I was expecting to get back my old Ford Focus). Then she told me to ring a bell and everyone in the dealership started cheering and clapping. I was confused, but then she told me to push the button for the horn, and there was my brand new Elantra parked out front with a big red bow on it. I can't thank Martene enough for helping my daughter to pull off the most amazing surprise ever. I would give Checkered Flag Hyundai a million stars if I could!

Great day...for a Santa Fe

After deciding to finally join the SUV hordes, we test drove many candidates before finally choosing a 2019 Santa Fe SE. It turned out to be a fairly easy decision based on styling, comfort, features, and warranty when compared to the competition. It's smooth, quiet, and packed with features normally reserved for higher-end models. We hope it serves us well, and so far we could not be happier. Our experience at Checkered Flag Hyundai World was EXCELLENT, as was our salesperson, Robert Weakley. Robert is a long time local, easy going, patient, experienced, and very knowledgeable. Great car-buying experience.

I bought my Hyundai accent from Richard two years ago and it was the best experience I’ve ever had in my life buying a car. Before meeting Richard, I already went to four different other dealerships where the car salesmen were all just too aggressive towards me and trying to get me to buy some thing that I didn’t need or that was well over my budget. Talking with Richard though was an absolutely wonderful because he didn’t try and peer pressure me into buying some thing that I wasn’t interested in and he genuinely wanted to work within my budget constraints and give me a vehicle that I could afford and that was going to last. I wish all car salesmen could be like Richard! PS if you see this review Richard, thank you again for making the car buying experience such a breeze without any headaches or pressure. God bless you!

Excellent customer service

Martene goes above and beyond to meet the needs of her customers, and is super friendly and personable. In my experience at Hyundai she helped me buyout my Elantra, which I had been leasing. She was able to explain everything to me in terms I could grasp and understand. She was able to lower my monthly payment by $40 (would have been $60, but I got an extended warranty, gap coverage, and a couple other packages) and helped me to buy this car on my own with no co-signer. This was a huge deal to me because I am a college student and do not have much credit history. Also I recently needed help handling finances with Hyundai Motor Finance and she helped me to fax my documents and even checks back with me follow up that my needs were met. I highly recommend going to her for your car needs!

Rude staff

the staff on both the sales and service department are pretty rude and inconsiderate. brought my car for scheduled appointment oil change, waited 30 min before I was seen by a staff, after I was seen, I stated (multiple times) that I need a sample in the Blackstone bottle for oil analysis, never done, the only thing I got was "sorry I forgot" and a 4 hour wait. That said, I cant give them 1 star, the oil change was good (checking dipstick). I was inquiring about a vehicle, the staff was rude in the email and literally questions my intelligence by telling me this is a cheap price (when it is not) the individual literally think customer dont do their research and shopped around. The car was in a crash, the fact that the dealership would not CPO it's own vehicle is a sign that tells me to walk away but on this particular incident the staff was insulting and passing off as arrogant. I would not do business with this dealership and encourage others to beware.

A very professional car buying experience

I had been shopping car sales from rental agencies (Hertz, Enterprise, etc) and it became a "big box- cookie cutter" experience. I went online and shopped all of the Norfolk and Virginia Beach Checkered Flag lots for my same preferences. Found many of the same choices and price with more dealership perks included. Hyundai World Virginia Beach had my "needle in a haystack" 2017 Sonata Sport 2.0T which is still covered under their manufacturer's warranty. I visited the dealership and was greeted professionally in their showroom by Kristi A. We did a test drive, Kristi had my trade-in appraised, and we connected with the trade in a short period of time. Not a high pressure car sales situation whatsoever!! In fact, Kristi never bugged me for my phone number, I can't say that about the rental agencies and several other dealers in the area.

Excellent customer service

Martene goes above and beyond to meet the needs of her customers, and is super friendly and personable. In my experience at Hyundai she helped me buyout my Elantra, which I had been leasing. She was able to explain everything to me in terms I could grasp and understand. She was able to lower my monthly payment by $40 (would have been $60, but I got an extended warranty, gap coverage, and a couple other packages) and helped me to buy this car on my own with no co-signer. This was a huge deal to me because I am a college student and do not have much credit history. Also I recently needed help handling finances with Hyundai Motor Finance and she helped me to fax my documents and even checks back with me follow up that my needs were met. I highly recommend going to her for your car needs!

Jeff was outstanding and went out of his way to make our car buying experience a good one. He answered all of our questions and was quick with the turn around time in getting in and out of the dealership with our new car. Very pleased!

Excellent customer service

Joey was fantastic and knowledgable about the new Santa Fe! Excellant sales staff and the everyone was super friendly and didn't pressure us at all. I was able to come back the next day and check the vehicle out again. Bob gave us a great deal on our trade in, and Joey did a great job making sure everything was done to our satisfaction. The showroom was very nice and clean. would defin buy from them again. We didn't spend all day there either doing the paperwork, i think 3 hours was a fantastic time to get everything done. Thank you Joey and Bob, you guys rock!

Joey made the process quick and painless. He went the extra mile to find the vehicle we wanted. Tried working a trade with other dealerships. Couldn’t have been more pleased with the experience.

Very professional , and felt completely at home. My son was actually buying the car. I was impressed that even though he arrived hrs before me, Tommy took his time with him and never pushed or rushed him into making any decisions about a purchase. Tommy worked with us for 3 days making sure he got just the right vehicle at a price that was right for my son. He test drove several vehicles in several price ranges and in different styles and makes. Tommy made sure we knew the pros and cons for each vehicle as they related to my sons wants and needs. We never felt like Tommy was pushing a vehicle on us, but gave us great options and gave us time to consider the merits of each vehicle. It was like we actually had a friend helping us select a vehicle- not a salesman. If you are in the market for new or used- do yourself a favor and ask for Tommy- he’s the BEST! My son purchased his vehicle and was so excited. We both left feeling like we got a great deal and made a friend in the process. Thank you Tommy!
