This dealership is the most professional one I have worked with in a very long time(I would dare say ever...). Easton Gregory and his team took excellent care of us, Easton, Norm, and Shane got us what I feel to be the best deal possible in a 200 mile radius (and I shopped around a LOT) . I really felt like they were working to do the best they could for us, and not just sell another car. Their finance guy was friendly, exceptionally knowledgeable, and got our paperwork done in record time...I recently had what can only be described as a horrific experience with Lia Nissan of Saratoga where I bought a CPO Titan in October... When my wife told me she wanted a Nissan Rogue, I began the search fearing that I'd just get more of the same everywhere...I got a lot of runarounds and double talk from other places... But not here... The folks at Kingston Nissan restored my faith that there are still some decent dealerships out there...and you can tell its a well managed place...everyone there, other customers and employees alike, all looked happy to be there. They were well worth the call. They put me in the new car I wanted, well below the price I expected to pay (it wound up costing less, with more features, than most of the one or two year old certified used Rogues i started out looking at) , I left there with a brand new Rogue and a HUGE smile... a week later and I am still happy. I don't think you will find a better crew... Thank you Kingston Nissan!!

Reviews for Margaret Reece

Aug 2, 2017

I had received an early lease termination letter in the mail, so I thought to contact Desiree and just see what could possibly be done. As it turns out, the remaining 4 months of my current lease were waived and she was able to get me into a new lease on the same day. After having two Muranos, I was in the market for a smaller SUV, so we decided on the Rouge. Between the hard work of Desiree in getting me a vehicle at a price I felt comfortable at, and feeling at ease with Margaret Reese, there was little stress involved - in what could easily be a very stressful situation. I'm certain that this 3rd Nissan of mine will work out just as wonderful as my previous two. Have always had a great experience with the Service department as well.

Just purchased a vehicle from Tim Lavella and I must say that it was the most no nonsense direct purchase we have ever made from a car dealership. Margaret Reese was also the best finance person we have ever come in contact with during a car sales transaction. Would highly recommend Kingston Nissan as a car dealership to do business with.

wonderful service - George McEvoy was so helpful and made the process of buying a Leaf incredibly easy. We appreciated how much George knew about the Leaf and all of the various rebates available. We also loved being able to take the car overnight so we had an extended test drive and knew the car was a good fit for us. This was a no pressure sale! Wonderful customer service!

Purchased a Nissan Rogue this Saturday. I visited the dealership 3 times. Each time William Noldy was very helpful. He answered all my questions and concerns. Bill even surprised me by telling me I could take my new Rogue home on the same day I purchased the car. Thanks to everyone who made that possible.

Jun 27, 2017

Although we were there on a Saturday and it was very busy, the salesman (Bill) approached us as we were looking around and asked us if he could help us. We knew exactly what we were looking for and he took us right to the vehicle. We were able to test drive it immediately and agree on a deal quickly. We were shocked to be able to drive the vehicle home that day. A very professional and helpful staff, and the facility is clean, bright and well organized. Even though buying a new vehicle can be a nightmare, it was a pleasant experience.

My lease expired, so I went bank to Nissan in Kingston and spoke to my previous agent Joe Conte. As before, he was very helpful explaining differences in the cars and I ended up leasing Nissan Rouge again, this time with more upgrades like heating seats and stirring wheel and very convenient start up from inside of my home. Within a couple of hours I was driving my new car home. Thank you Joe!

Very great service. I walked into the dealership empty handed and without a clear mindset of what I wanted. Tammy and Joe helped me out so much. I was able to trade in two of my lesser than great vehicles to have a very low down payment. I got everything I want, even down to the white paint and back up cam. I had 0 credit and I qualified for a first time loan which has surprisingly low payments for the car I have. I could have walked out of the store than day driving the car but I didn't have all the necessary documents. Amazing service thank you guys so much!

Cannot say enough about Kingston Nissan. My experience with them was more than exceptional. Not only because my loan was approved, but the service provided before and during the process was special. The company is not just family owned, but each worker appears to be a true extension of the owners. Their mantra to ensure that everyone gets a car is underpinned by their philosophy of looking ahead in your finances and not behind. In recognition that many folks have credit issues or have had credit issues, they and their lenders look at a person’s capacity today. Bankruptcy, no credit, poor credit, does not get in the way of their guarantee to help whoever comes through their doors.Can’t get to their doors, they provide a ride. Their welcome mat is not something lying at their front door, but an attitude and acceptance of you by each worker from the minute that you enter their lives and their doors. If you are thinking about coming to this company, think no longer, they are the REAL DEAL.I got a SOUL KIA from them, but the real SOUL is in them as a company. Personal thanks to Rich Gordon, Finance Consultant, extraordinaire and Easton Gregory, Sales Consultant, also extraordinaire. And, for the rest who assisted them, gratitude to you too.

Zach was great in setting me up with Timmy and Timmy was very kind and very much about the customer (me). There was a sense of "lets get this for her" and not "I want the money". Richard was very kind and very helpful. Explained everything about my new car and how the payments were to go. Even when I didnt understand something, he made sure to break it all down and explain it until I did get it! Thank you very much!
