201. “Pilot”
Jim and Ralph were very helpful. Everyone was very accommodating to our family–bringing two young children car buying is not always easy or fun, but the whole staff was very patient. We also appreciated that they drove our other car all the way back to Englewood. I would definitely recommend this team to anyone looking for a fair deal and pleasant service. ( reviews)

200. “All personnel were extremely courteous and helpful”
Jim went over the top to find us a vehicle and put together a deal that we could afford. We would definitely recommend him to others. He also did a couple of “extras” that most salespeople would not have done. ( review)

199. “Honda Pilot in 24 hours”
Jim and Ralph did a great job meeting my needs in a short time. I was a demanding client needing to purchase a car for my mother within 24 hours of contacting Ralph via online, was only in town a short time. I wanted a specific car with particular options and color combination and they did not have it on the lot. Within 5 hours of contacting them they had sourced the car and it was on its way to their lot. I was very happy with the price and Jim did an excellent job explaining the options on the car and how they worked. I would very much recommend both men as they know how to take care of a client and deliver what they promise. ( review)

198. “Exceptional”
Everyone here made the whole experience enjoyable. Jim Timpson treats you like your his best friend. I’ve never been treated like this at any other dealership. He spent a lot of time going through the car with my wife showing her about the phone and every thing else. Dan our salesman was also a pleasure to work with and answered all our questions. Also Ralph was helpful at getting the paperwork finished up for us. And last but not least thanks to Mike Johnson for making the deal happen by getting us to a number we could agree on . Great personalities here that made it a fun and no second thoughts transaction . Will definitely shop here again. Thanks Venice Honda ! , Brian 6    ( Review)

192. “Great Experience……….Due To Jim Timpson!!!!”
I hate buying vehicles! I am sure most people do. You enter the parking lot and the vultures begin circling and then attack!! I went online first, hoping it was safe, checking out the Honda of my choice. Venice Honda has a “Best Price” option online, they give you their best price without the hassle. Wow, what a concept!!! Jim Timpson contacted me shortly thereafter and we arranged a meeting. When we arrived, we were greeted and treated so nicely, then directed to Jim. He is the “Online Guy”. We chatted for a few minutes so he could figure out our needs and then took us out to see the vehicles! Jim is a wonderful person as well as a salesperson ! No high-pressure tactics here!! Let me repeat that…. No high-pressure from anyone we dealt with!!! I narrowed my choice to 3 vehicles and told Jim I had to sleep on it……take a day to think it out. Jim said “No problem, it’s a big purchase! ” We arranged a meeting yesterday and the whole process took no time at all. I drove home my new Baby! I might add that I had a trade-in, and Jim made sure we received a fair (actually a VERY FAIR) price for my old, but beautiful pick-up!! He really does his utmost to make you happy and comfortable with your purchase!! Paul, in Finance, was great also! Although my credit score is off the charts, he really worked magic with the numbers to our total satisfaction! No pressure to buy any of the add-ons that can really up your monthly payments! Also, Jim stayed an hour and a half extra, over his work day, to explain our vehicles options and how things work! Much appreciated! He deserves a raise!!! OK, I’ll stop rambling on. It was a great experience and I recommend you go online and check out Jim’s deals! It’s worth the effort!! Thank you Jim for making an otherwise painful experience pleasurable. Looking forward to dealing with you when we replace my wife’s Honda! ( review)

191. “nothing short of fantastic!”
its harder purchasing a car when u r in another state. all kinds of different rules and headaches. But not for Jim Timpson at Venice Honda! this was a surprise for my wife when she flew into our Florida home in Venice. Jim not only helped me through the procedures he made sure the car was in our garage when the wife opened the door!! oh yeah, he even put a bow on the car I sent him. now that’s going all the way for a customer! Jim never complained once! and I never heard it in his voice that I was a pain! because I was! he never let his guard down. he treated me with up most professionalism all the time, and oh yeah, the wife was extremely happy thanks to Jims efforts!! Fred Edmunds ( review)

190.  “Great experience”
Everything went great. Found a car online and called to inquire about it. Jim Timpson helped with the process. Jim was very professional, responsive and had great follow through from the initial inquiry to after the sale. The sales process was transparent and without suprises. Dave Fishburn in finance was also very helpful by listening to my business financing needs, taking the time and structuring the deal for my business. I would recommend Jim and Venice Honda to friends and family without hesitation. ( review)

189. “Wonderful experience”
Jim Timpson guided me through the leasing process so that I got the vehicle I wanted at the price I could afford. He spent extra time programming my Bluetooth, radio, and phone contacts so that everything was set up for me. I highly recommend Jim and Venice Honda to help you through the usually traumatic experience of purchasing a car to make it painless. ( review)

188. “Outstanding experience”
We purchased a new Honda Civic EX-T at Venice Honda. From the beginning, the experience was outstanding. We were helped by Jim Timpson and Wayne Young, both of whom were very knowledgeable of, and enthusiastic about, their product. There was no high-pressure sales job, just careful attention to our questions and concerns. When we were ready to make the deal, it was easy. (Dealerrater.comreview)

187. “A five-starplus organization!”
I cannot begin to tell you how good my experience was at Venice Honda. Jim Timpson went above and beyond to help me get into the car I wanted. My car had been totaled in an accident and I was expecting a check from the insurance company within the week. I could not afford a car payment and could only buy a car for the amount of the insurance check. Jim presented my case to management and Venice Honda lowered the price of the car so I could buy it. Jim was solicitous, understanding and really went to bat for me. I will always do business with Jim and Venice Honda and will recommend them to friends and family. They are a five star plus organization! ( review)

176. “Pain-free new car purchase…”

Internet search for a 2016 Honda Fit EXL brought us to Venice Honda. Jim Timpson replied to our email in a very timely manner, and assured us the vehicle was indeed in stock and on the showroom floor. As we drove to the dealership, Jim had the Fit EXL removed from the showroom. We test drove the car and learned much about the features along the way. Jim was kind, friendly, and very helpful throughout our entire time with him. He made it possible for us to purchase the car that day and drive home in a new car. We have purchased many cars in our lives, but Jim and this dealership made the process so comfortable that we are calling this our Pain-fee car purchase. ( review)

175. “Best experience I’ve ever had buying a car!”
On Friday, June 3, 2016, I went to Venice Honda to buy a 2013 Honda Fit Sport. I met with Jim Timpson, who assisted me with the best experience I’ve ever had buying a car. He was polite and courteous. He went to his GM and negotiated a better deal. That itself tells me he is a wonderful employee who will go above and beyond to make all his customers happy. It was a pleasure working with him. He has ensured that I will be coming back to Venice Honda for years to come. ( review)

Great experience working with Venice Honda! Especially considering that I don’ live in Florida and never once visited the dealership or saw the car.

170. “First Time Car Buyers”
My fiance and I had found a car online at this dealer and reached out to them to get more info about it. Jim Timpson responded back to me very quickly with the AutoCheck of the vehicle and was more than willing to help us. We met with Michael Rodriguez at the dealer. Both of the gentlemen were excellent, helpful and nice. We traded in a vehicle as well and that night we realized that we had left some things in it. That was NO problem. My fiance called Jim Timpson and the next day we had what we need. He was willing to help us and make sure that we were happy with our first car buying experience. I would definitely recommend meeting with Jim and Michael! ( review)

169. “Excellent”
Ralph made the new automobile buying experience enjoyable; it has been my observation as a customer and former new and used car salesman that isn’t always the case, with the back and forth to sales managers office to get more down payment and/or lowball the trade in. Jim was courteous and knowledgeable answering all our questions. He is an asset to the dealership. John was also courteous and was able to get Janis and I an excellent finance rate. ( review)

168. “Growing Family Needed Minivan”
Started as internet search; ended up purchasing a used 2011 Sienna from Venice Honda a few days later. Internet sales manager Jim Timpson was always courteous, prompt, kind, and professional. We even had two young children (toddler and infant) running around dealership. Everyone was helpful and polite to us, and our toddler in and out of the vehicles! Jim was awesome at following up, but not being aggressive and overbearing! I was actually in disbelief at how easy Jim, Ralph (finance) and John (lending) made the experience. With my busy work, school, and family life, Jim, Ralph, and John actually arranged the paperwork that I didn’t have to drive my family back, and they drove the 30 minutes to my city (North Port). I was also provided warrantee and GAP insurance and a lower rate than I had anticipated (even on a used vehicle)! I will certainly recommend Jim, Ralph, John, and Venice Honda. ( review)

After shopping for a new car for the past few months this dealership had the vehicle I wanted. And Jim Timpson made it happen. He not only got me the right price, but also took care of all my concerns regarding the sales process. He went the extra mile to take care of every item on the vehicle. I am very happy with my new car and look forward to many years of trouble free mileage. Would highly recommend Jim Timpson and the dealership. ( Review)

Thanks a million Venice honda and Jim Timpson for our beautiful new honda accord.

162. “Jim Went The Extra Mile”
Jim went the extra mile & actually made the process fun for us. He assisted us in getting everything we requested on a 2016 CRV. I went to the dealership without my wallet & after all of the papers were signed Jim followed us home to get a copy of my license so we didn’t need to return to the dealership with it. The CRV we traded in had a tow hitch which we wanted on the new CRV. Jim drove our old CRV to the Hitch House in Sarasota who removed the hitch & placed it on the new CRV. Jim was very pleasant to deal with & did a great job.

161. “Great Car Buying Experience!”
I first came across this dealership by searching on-line originally for a Honda, but found a quality used Mercedes GLK 350 in pristine condition which I fell in love with. The picture layout and write-up were excellent. I contacted the dealership by internet for further details and was later telephoned by James Timpson, internet sales manager. I couldn’t have asked for a better person to be contacted by. He first left a message on our recorder as I was out at the time. His recorded message was so well put that I have saved it on my recorder now almost two months later. His responsiveness, hospitality and attention to detail has been exceptional. His conduct was more than a competent salesman, but behaved as a friend even providing service weeks after the sale. We could not recommend him more highly than we do! The sales manager of Honda of Venice was of the same caliber. Thank you both!

160. “We were treated with respect and concern.”
Jim Timpson was our first point of contact. He understood and listened in our first phone conversation, so he had exactly what we were looking for ready for us to take out for a test ride… couldn’t have been a better experience!

159. “Jim Timpson was exceptional”
Jim Timpson goes the extra mile to make the car buying experience a good one. He was an advocate for us during the process, understanding our needs and financial constraints. He will “tell it like it is” and assist in all ways possible. We strongly recommend Jim and Venice Honda! ( Review)

158. “Good buying experience”
Before making our annual Snow Bird trip to Florida, I made an internet inquiry to Venice Honda as we were looking for a new Pilot with FWD. Jim Timpson responded at once and we stayed in touch until we arrived in Florida. Went to the dealership and Jim was not available but Dan immediately covered for him. They had a new vehicle arriving that met our specs. Both Jim and Dan were very attentive to our needs and we enjoyed working with them both. ( Review)

157. “Great Salesman went to bat for Us”

This was the easiest and most straight forward car buying experience I have ever had.

Jim Timpson is a delight to work with. he is honest, fair and customer-oriented. The dealership supports him well. I recommend Jim and Venice Honda to anyone looking for a new car. Phil Brown ( Review)

152. “Hard to beat that kind of Customer Service!”
Jim was such a blessing to work with. He is trust-worthy, hard-working, kind, and so considerate. He actually drove the car we were interested in all the way to Bradenton for us to look at, because he knew it’d be difficult for us to drive there with our baby. Hard to beat that kind of customer service! Lynsey Alfano. ( review)

I puchased a new Honda CR-V last week from Cramer Honda, and thoroughly recommend them. No pressure, no hype, just good old fashioned service. Jim Timpson helped me from start to finish, finding me the exact vehicle I wanted, and made it an easy, pleasant experience. He couldn’t have been more helpful. I love my new car, too! ( & review)

149.  “I’ll be telling everyone I know how great we were treated”
Well first I have to say that I would rather go to the dentist than buy a car!!! lol…UNTIL today. My husband and I went to Cramer after going on line and looking at some Hondas. We got a call back from Jim Timpson and made an appointment to go see him. Before we went my husband told Jim on the phone what we wanted to spend just as  not to waste either our or his time. He said come on in! Upon arriving we were greeted by friendly sales people and they paged Jim for us and our adventure began!!! I cannot say enough about this totally wonderful experience in this dealership today. Jim took us for a test drive and I absolutely loved the car!! He introduced us to Chris who worked on our financing and was fun talking with as he is a Red Sox fan…lol…then we finished up with Rafael, who gave us some wonderful places to go here in Venice as we just moved here. Now one of the most amazing things to my husband was…the price that was quoted to him for the monthly payment is the ACTUAL price we ended up paying…from the opening of the front door…to sitting with Chris…to all the time Jim spent with us during the whole process…to the finishing up with Rafael it was the best day!!! These gentlemen are wonderful…honest…down to earth people. I will be telling everyone I know how great we were treated and recommend Cramer Honda and Jim Timpson to everyone! I Love my Honda Accord and thank you Jim for our surprise!!! God Bless!!! ( Review)

148. “Another Good Experience at Cramer Honda!”
Jim Timpson has again provided first-rate service in fulfilling our objectives. Earlier this year he met my criteria for a great used car and now has enabled my wife to purchase a new car matching her wishes. Good job, Jim. (, and Review)

147.“I drove 3 hours across the state and happily purchased my Forester”
I’d like to give a huge thanks to Jim Timpson @ Cramer Honda in Venice Florida. I was looking for a specific crossover model & year range for a couple of months locally with no luck. Cramer Honda had a trade-in that just what I was looking for. After speaking with Jim, I explained that I was looking for a Subaru Forester that already had a major Subaru recommended service performed. Jim said the sales notes said it had been done. I said I’d feel better if I had a record of it. He went as far as contacting the previous owner, getting the name of the shop and having the receipt for the service faxed to me. This was a HUGE relief and was above and beyond what I expected from a dealer selling a used trade in. We negotiated a fair price over the phone and via email. With that done, I drove 3 hours across the state and happily purchased my Forester. I can recommend Cramer Honda and Jim Timpson without any reservations. They were professional, flexible, not overly aggressive or pushy. They made a normally stressful process as painless as possible. Thanks again Jim. ( Review)

146. “Best Service Ever!”
I arrived late Monday afternoon to Cramer Honda and drove home in a beautiful new Accord, and my daughter in a Honda Civic. Mr. Jim Timpson took care of my daughter and myself with kindness, caring, and great expertise. Thank you for a great experience and two new beautiful cars! We will definitely send family and friends your way Mr. Timpson. Also, Rafael got us sailing quickly through a sea of paper work! ( review)

145. “Great Experience at Cramer”
We needed a van with an 8th seat to fit our large family. After visiting and calling several other dealers, we ended up at Cramer Honda of Venice working with Jim Timpson. His kind, no-pressure approach gave us the confidence that we were being well taken care of. Not only did Jim spend hours making sure we were in the right vehicle and totally satisfied, he even drove our extra car to Sarasota, and his internet sales partner Dan met us to bring him home. We would highly recommend both Jim and Dan, and Cramer as a dealership. We love our Odyssey and intend to drive it for a long time, but when we are ready to buy, we will be back! ( Review)

144.”Jim Timson”

I called and/or made contact via the web, and out of 7 or 8 dealerships Jim and Cramer Honda was the only person/Honda dealership who truly took me seriously and answered all my questions.

Many thanks to Jim, Wayne and Chris at Cramer Honda for making my car buying experience very pleasant.  Jim worked with me over the internet and phone to negotiate a deal.   I drove from Orlando to Venice trusting he would be true to his word and he and the dealership upheld their promises.  Members of the Cramer Honda staff were true professionals and worked hard to procure a solid deal.  Thank you Cramer Honda for being honest and true to your word.

Jim provides the best pricing options (below the completion) and ensures that YOU, the CUSTOMER has a seamless and rewarding experience, and all of your needs are addressed and fulfilled. My highest compliments to Jim based upon his ethics, integrity, and customer satisfaction commitment. Should Jim Timpson change his “branding” from HONDA, to another manufacturer, I will follow! All future contracts must be in conjunction with Jim TIMPSON!! ( review)

127. “I will only do business with them from this point on!”
Just leased a 2015 Honda Civic from Cramer Honda of Venice. It was the second Honda dealership that we visited that day. Jim Timpson and Chris Hoffman were outstanding to work with. They listened to our needs and took the time to offer various solutions.
In fact, I was initially opposed to the Civic and casually commented as we passed a blue civic that it actually looked sharp in that specific color. Jim actually remembered that I said that when we finally decided to go with a civic a few hours later and brought that particular one for me to test drive! I drove home with it that day and love it! Great experience overall! I will only do business with them from this point on! ( review)

126. “”Purchased new Honda Accord Hybrid Touring””
I recently purchased a new Honda Accord Hybrid Touring from Cramer Honda in Venice, FL. I worked with Jim Timpson and did the initial work on-line where all the dealers in my area respond to a request for price. Jim was quick to respond with an excellent price and didn’t screw me around by later adding in additional costs. It was well worth the 60 mile drive to pick up the vehicle. Jim was pleasant to work with, and Jim and the entire Dealer staff were extraordinarily professional. I wasn’t pressured to buy anything I didn’t want although I was offered a somewhat expensive extended warranty. As I never buy those I initially turned it down, but later decided to buy it due to the massive amount of high technology on this car. Although Honda in well known for its reliability, I decided I needed the piece of mind as It did extend the basic warranty by a large amount. ( Review)

125. “Best car buying experience in 20 years!”

We had a fantastic car-buying experience at Cramer Honda last week. We were served primarily by Jim Timpson, with additional support from Tim Platt.

We found exactly the used car we needed, it is in great condition and we were satisfied with the price. Jim, Tim and the team were accommodating and extremely positive.

Jim Timpson is the reason we bought at Cramer Honda. Car buying prior to this has been stressful. We sat in when our sisters bought a car from Jim, and saw how he treated them. Never before had we seen a car dealer treat a customer like that. No pressure and no stress! And he tries to please in every way. We felt very blessed as we drove away. He made it simple and pleasureable. He treats you like a friend. The best car dealer ever!!!God bless you Jim!!! also wants to say Jim sent us away with a full tank of gas and sent a hundred dollars with us to give to the ones who recommended Jim to us. He gives from his own pocket to someone who recommended him if they buy a vehicle. How nice is that?! ( review)

113. “Very nice people to deal with”
I purchased a used vehicle last week from Cramer Honda and Jim Timpson was the salesman I dealt with. The vehicle I bought wasn’t very expensive, however I was treated as though I were buying a $50k vehicle. Very respectful and kind. I did end up paying more than I thought I would, but I still feel very happy with my new/used car. They were VERY accommodating and took very good care to insure my happiness. I would definitely buy my next vehicle there and I recommend them highly. ( review)

Having done our homework on the internet, my wife and I had a good idea what we were looking for in a vehicle, and were very happy the way things transpired at the dealership.

110. “””Truthful car buying “‘”
Buying a car based on internet pictures can be disheartening, however dealing with Jim Timpson and the internet was awesome! Jim was very friendly and truthful. There were no pictures of the inside of the car but Jim went out to the car and called me, he talked me through the car, he told me of any scrathes, scrapes and bumps; and sure enough the car was just as Jim described. I drove an hour to see this car and was very happy that Jim was truthful! Thanks for a great car buying experience …. John Jr. is very happy with his car!!! ( review)

90. “Jim T & Dan B”
Jim & Dan did a great job getting a workable price and important service information ready for when I got there from Ohio. They even called another dealer that serviced the vehicle to get the info. With an out the door price we just had to stop in and look at it and drive it. We bought it as is and that night the service engine soon light came on. I called them up and took it in to have them look at it. Even though it was sold as is they split the cost with me to make the repairs. I was impressed with Jim, Dan and Cris and their great service!

We are happy to say that we have found Cramer Honda and truly appreciate what they mean when they say “We treat people right”. The entire Cramer family is committed to supporting customer needs: everyone is always congenial, helpful, positive, and supportive. Additionally it has been our great pleasure to work with, in our opinion, the best auto sale person we have dealt with while buying cars during the past 50 years. Jim Timpson exceeds the expectations of any sales person we have ever worked with. He’s helped us with the purchase of our last two vehicles and will remain our “go to guy” when buying in the future. He knows the product, has great people skills, and is a joy to work with. My compliments to Jim and the rest of the Cramer team for a job well done.

78. Best car buying experience we’ve ever had!

We were very pleased with our recent car buying experience at Cramer Honda Of Venice. We worked with two of the salesmen, Dan & Jim, who were both very helpful and informative, and at no time used any high pressure selling tactics.

They answered all of our questions, and made the process very comfortable. Best car buying experience we’ve ever had, and, of course, we love our new Honda ( Review)

77. “Do not go anywhere else”< We purchased a certified preowned Honda accord on Saturday, November 22 and we received nothing but the best customer service possible. Our experience  began with an Internet search which let us to call Jim Timpson, the Internet manager,  who promptly called us back and set up an appointment for us to come and test drive several cars. We met with Wayne on Saturday afternoon and he showed us the car that we saw on the Internet.  We fell in love with it. I had some hesitation going into the buying portion of this because I hear so many horror stories about car dealerships but these gentlemen were far from those stereotypes.  They treated my partner and I would nothing but respect and he listened to our needs and he was able to give us a wonderful deal way below the listed price plus an added bonus.  We were in and out of there within two hours at the most.  They even followed up with us and invited us to their open house which is this Wednesday.  A+++++++ to everyone in that shop and I would refer them to my own mother and father.  Do not go anywhere else and make sure you go here first and ask for Jim or Wayne and they will help you. ( review) 76. “A wonderful car experience”
The purchase of a new car can be scary and unfamiliar territory, but Jim Timpson was there to change all that.

He made the experience of the car purchase seamless. I left the dealership driving my new car feeling confident and happy that I made the right choice to buy at Cramer Honda of Venice.

73. Easiest Car Buying Experience EVER!
Jim Timpson responded to my internet inquiry within an hour, and we spoke the next day — I was looking to help my elderly Mother-In-Law lease a CRV as her Florida car for the 6-7 months a year she spends here, but she was not physically here and we wanted her to have it when she arrives. Jim made it so easy and bent over backwards to get the transaction done remotely with her, with me supporting by phone and email here in FL. I just met him for the first time today when he actually brought the car from Venice to Sarasota so I wouldn’t have to make the trek to Venice and get two cars back to Sarasota… Amazing experience, and amazing people at Cramer, thank you so much and I will tell anyone who asks that it is worth working with Jim Timpson and Cramer Honda in Venice no matter where in the area they live.

64. Ryan Stowe
Hi Jim and Rick, Thank you for working so very hard to get Francisco a good deal on his new Accord Coupe. The entire way back to Jupiter he was smiling ear to ear. I greatly appreciate the forthright manner in which both of you acted. As I told Jim last night, there are many dealers who will not issue itemized lists and so it becomes difficult to figure the “out the door” cost for a given automobile. From the first correspondence, you folks were competitive with pricing and easy to work with.
Jim went the “extra mile” in the truest sense of the phrase and was patient and thoughtful throughout the whole blown tire ordeal that characterized much of last night. I can see why he is one of the top salesman at Cramer. Kind Regards, Ryan ( review & Email received)

63. Jim Timpson at Cramer Honda delivered what he said he would
I am pleased with my new Honda Fit and with the experience of working with the salesman, Jim Timpson. He was completely up-front on the telephone, matched a competitive offer, and made sure everything was as advertised. He worked efficiently and didn’t waste my time or try to redirect me to a higher-margin car. When the floor mats I’d ordered weren’t in the day I picked up the car, he had them shipped. He went out of his way to offer a tip on a temporary tag for the old car I was selling privately that ended up saving me a couple of hundred dollars. Cramer Honda tacks on a lower (and fully disclosed) dealer fee than most other area Honda dealers and didn’t add any hidden “dealer options.” They’re still making a healthy profit, but they do it without bait-and-switch tactics. If I had to buy a new car again, I’d be happy to consider Cramer Honda. ( Review)

62. Mike and Barb
Hi Jim Timpson, We want to thank you for your assistance in our purchase of the 2014 Honda Odessey Elite. Your honesty and no pressure salesmanship made our decision for the purchase.

Contacted Jim Timpson at 9AM and at 11:15am test drove car. At 3:00 pm drove off with new car. People friendly and no hard sell. The process of buying a new car hasn’t changed but I was satisfied with the over all car purchase and same day delivery. I’d recommend this salesperson and dealership. ( & Reviews)

In short we met Jim Timpson at your dealership 7 months ago and he did everything he could to help us purchase a vehicle. However, at the time our circumstances did not allow us to proceed with the purchase. We left with confidence that when we are ready, we will return to see Mr. Timpson because he represented Cramer Honda so well. This past weekend we returned and specifically asked for Jim Timpson. He spent nearly half of a day working with us to get us the best deal and finance possible. In the beginning it was very tense for me, because I do not particularly like the process of purchasing a vehicle. With that said, it is Jim Timpson that put us at ease. Long story short, we never bothered to check with other dealers or go online. We felt we could put our trust in Jim, we did and we purchased a Pilot I have been looking at for quite sometime. I am on my 4th Honda vehicle. I just traded in a 2003 Honda Accord with 330,000.00 miles! I have been in Management, sales and installations in the electronics industry for 30 years of my life and I know that Jim, “treats people right”. Thank you Jim and the rest of the Cramer Honda Team for taking such good care of us. ( Review)

I bought a new a new Honda at Cramer Honda of Venice today. I was very lucky to have had the most wonderful experience with Jim Timpson the internet manager. He showed me many, cars and I drove a few. He worked with me for hours in the HOT sun. After I made my selection, he preformed the transaction very professionally. After the sale, he spent a very long time showing me the features of the car. Then, he helped me move my stuff out of my old car and in to the new one. I can not say enough about Jim and the excellent job that he did. If you are looking for a new car, Jim is the best one to buy from. ( Review)

My experience at Cramer Honda of Venice exceeded my expectations. Working with Jim Timpson, the Internet Sales Manager, was a very positive experience. I wasn’t necessarily planning on buying a car at this time. I was simply looking into my options for the future since my current car was getting old & up there in miles. But Jim worked really hard with me to find the best deal possible for my situation. He did not try to up-sell me at all. And since there as no hassle or haggling to get such a good deal, I ended up walking out with a new 2014 Honda Civic! I couldn’t be more happy with my experience at Cramer Honda! Thank you Jim! I would recommend anyone in the market for a car to go to Jim for a no hassle and positive experience. ( Review)

I am 51 years old and have leased or purchased several cars in my lifetime. Working with Jim Timpson at Cramer Honda, was the best experience I have ever had! This is the first time in my life, that I can say I would strongly recommend buying a car from a salesman and dealership. ( Review)

50. Dory Marsh
We recently had the most wonderful experience that anyone could have with the purchase of a new vehicle! My husband and I went to Cramer Honda of Venice. Our salesperson, Jim Timpson took very good care of us. He never pressured us nor pushed for a sale. We knew that we were among friends who made us feel at ease. Raphael was very efficient and knowledgeable with the completion process of payment and sales details. We cannot say enough good things about Jim Timpson. His teammates Rick, Tim, and Troy were accommodating and very professional at all times. We also commend David, the Detail Manager and his associate for their excellent perma plate service. Thank you for working with us! We also thank Compton Cramer whom we met at a very nice Honda Open House meeting where we had great discounts for parts! We truly appreciate your team, mostly Jim and his worthy teammates at the Cramer Honda of Venice! We have a brand new and terrific CRV plus a superior dealership that we can rely on for great service!

47. Shiselle Ramirez
I had the most amazing car buying experience ever at Cramers Honda of Venice buying my 2005 Cadillac SRX. I didn’t feel like I was purchasing a car. It was more like I was with family. All the sales people were incredible and loved meeting the owner him self. But having the pleasure of having Jim Timpson as my sales person was the icing on the cake. He went beyond his sales duties. As I’m on a non weight baring state right now and using crutches do to knee surgery. I drove from Fort Myers Fl. to Venice Fl. which is an hour and some change drive with my 4 yr old son just to go look at the car I was interested in. I wasn’t looking to spend as much as I did, but the ability that Jim had to assist me and everything that I needed that they changed my mind completely. I didn’t feel pressured in any way to make a purchase. I was there for over 4 hours with a 4yr old son and my self on crutches. What might of been the perfect setting for a disaster turned out to be the most amazing experience I ever had. (Keeping a 4yr old entertained for that long is no joke) My son had a blast and has gained a new uncle in Jim Timpson and I left there so happy that I can’t wait to buy another new car from him. Thanks so much Jim Timpson your an angel in disguise. Sincerely; Ana Shiselle Ramirez ( Review)

Jim Timpson is very professional: patient, detailed, and personable. Each of the several times we met with him, he took time to answer our many questions in detail and always had a positive attitude. He was low-key, knew the product, and focused on our needs; i.e., he made sure that we bought the car that was the right car for us. We highly recommend him. ( Review)

We bought a new Odyssey using the internet and Cramer Honda was very responsive, had excellent pricing and we received outstanding service when we arrived at the dealership.

Best Customer Services by Jim Timpson & Al. I have been searching in Arcadia, Sarasota, Bradenton looking for a car for my family of four and Cramer Honda of Venice found me a car I was exhausted of searching for a car that would work with my bank and buy my car. Thanks to you guys for supporting me and my family the car that I have now works great. ( Review)

We were looking for a used car with specific requirements. We have owned Accords in the past, but have been Toyota owners recently. Contacted Jim Timpson regarding an accord advertised online. After driving down to see the vehicle, I was pleased that Jim was so open to learning what our needs were. He took to time to go over several cars in their inventory to make sure we were seeing the right car for us. Jim never pushed us towards the purchase of any particular vehicle. He simply relayed the facts about each car and let us decide for ourselves. Once we narrowed our choices it was simple. The internet pricing of the car we selected was right in line with what our research showed to be a fair price. There wasn’t any uncomfortable haggling and the dealership worked with us on a couple small issues to make the car exactly what we wanted. Jim’s follow up has been superb making sure everything is right with the car. We are very pleased with our choice and we appreciate the way Jim helped, but did not push us into our decision. I have often felt that car salesmen have certain inventory they are pushing and they cloud our real needs with what their needs are. Jim never gave that impression. It was going to be our car and it needed to be right for our needs. It was a very pleasant, comfortable buying experience. ( and Reviews)

Excellent customer service when buying from the internet. Jim Timpson, Internet Sales Manager provided quick responses, accurate information, and lowest quotes of the three dealerships contacted. ( Review)

I have purchased many cars over the years and I must say this was the best experience of them all. Our salesman Wayne was friendly and Knowledgeable. His manager Chris was equally as friendly and made us feel very comfortable throughout the experience. We first started working with James during our internet hunt and when we came into the dealership he was busy so right away we were directed to Wayne. We knew what we wanted it was just a matter of sealing the deal. We leased a 2014 Honda Civic LX and could not be happier with the service we received at Cramer Honda. I would highly recommend them to anyone trying to buy a new car!!!! (

We recently purchased a new Honda Accord Hybrid from Cramer Honda of Venice. The whole experience has been exceptional. I made my inquiry through Cramer Honda’s website and the Internet manager Jim Timpson promptly called me. Jim offered us a great price right from the start, well below the national average. While working through the deal, we talked about only price, tax, tag, and title. Never were we pressured into more or less of a car. I can’t say enough about the service Jim gave us and how professional and courteous his team at Cramer Honda was. I have heard stories of other local car dealers finding you a car based on your monthly payment, not showing you cars they don’t want to sell you, making you wait hours to talk to sales managers or finance managers. Our whole transaction was very speedy, less than a couple hours from meeting Jim, test driving, and working through the finances with Troy. The Accord Hybrid is an impressive car, an engineering marvel. I can honestly say when compared to the Accord Hybrid Jim’s team had a lot to live up to… and they did! ( Review)

I traveled from the east coast to Venice to look a used vehicle. I wanted it inspected by the vehicles maker & Jim met me in Sarasota with the vehicle so that it could be thoroughly inspected. The vehicle checked out, I told them what I could offer & I was on my way. No hassle, completely genuine & willing to be, as Jim calls it ‘All In’; for his customers to assure that there’s nothing he wont do to meet the needs of everyone who seeks his services. Thanks Jim Timpson for walking the walk~ ( &

I recently purchased a used Honda Civic from Cramer Honda of Venice. In 2008 I had gone to the dealership and was so poorly treated that I vowed to never go there again. That is until last week when I chose to let go of the old anger and give the dealership another chance. Well, I can tell you the experience was totally different from beginning to end. It started with an email first thing Saturday morning and ended with a purchase Saturday before dinner. Jim Timpson (Internet Manager) emailed me and then followed up with a pleasant (non-pushy) call to say that he would hold the car for me so that I could test drive it in the early afternoon. Sure enough when I got to the dealership (which was packed solid) he was waiting for me and when I mentioned his name at the door, the first salesman graciously took me to him. Jim came with me for a test drive and when I made the decision to proceed with the purchase he introduced Tim Platt (used car manager) to me who as well was kind, caring and worked with me to finalize the deal.

We had a wonderful car buying experience at Cramer Honda of Venice.. It began with a chat on e-mail with a lovely lady who referred us to JimTimpson. Soon we were contacted by phone. We were looking for a used car, but he made us such an exceptional offer for a new Honda that we couldn’t pass up. He was so helpful in sending maps so we wouldn’t get lost. From the moment we stepped into the door(that was opened for us) until our departure we were treated with kindness. Jim did an excellent job showing us the cars that we could choose from and he so graciously went with us on a test drive. My sister and I and my brother and his wife all think he is the most pleasant car salesman we ever dealt with! Fannie $ Margie (

On Saturday May 17th, Jim Timpson handled my lease transaction. I had spoken to Jim the day before to set up a appointment for Saturday. This was the best transaction experience I have had at any auto dealership. I was in and out in 70 minutes. Thank you Jim I will be Back! (

I have never experienced such incredible service and attention to my car buying needs than I did with Cramer Honda of Venice. From the first phone call from Jim Timpson to signing on the dotted line and driving my 2014 Honda CRV out of the car lot, my experience with Cramer Honda was nothing short of an extreme pleasure. I live in Sarasota and choose to drive to Venice because the level of care and attention to my needs from Jim and Sales Manager Tim Platt made the drive worth it!. I am now and forever more a committed customer to Cramer Honda! Thank you to all of your staff for your gracious care of my needs (, Google, Superpages, Yelp)

I have been in Sales, throughout my business career. Jim Timpson, is the “Best of the Best”, in my book!!
My husband and I were warmly greeted by Jim Timpson, when we entered Cramer Honda of Venice, last weekend, on April 27th.
We told him that we were shopping, and that we already owned a 2004 Honda Odyssey, and thought it might be a good time to look into a new Odyssey. We like Odyssey’s, because we enjoy sitting in a “chair”, rather than sitting on the “floor” of a smaller vehicle. We are senior citizens, and we feel the Odyssey’s are more comfortable, and safer, to drive in.
Jim Timpson, was very understanding, as to our wants in a vehicle. Jim lead us outside, to a new 2014 Honda Odyssey, and I drove it out to I-75, to give it a test drive. Jim told us about all the features on the 2014 Odyssey. The Odyssey drove beautifully.
When we returned to the dealership, we sat down with Jim Timpson, and I showed him the coupons we had received from Cramer Honda, and he said he would definitely honor them.
Jim was a pleasure to work with. He explained Buying vs. Leasing, and there was ABSOLUTELY NO PRESSURE on my husband or myself!!
Jim introduced us to Tim, the dealer manager, and to Paul, in the finance department, who were both very friendly, also.
We decided to get the new 2014 Odyssey.
Jim walked us through all the steps. Jim is a very sincere, and wonderful person to work with. I would be very happy to recommend Jim Timpson, to any prospective buyer.
Thank you. (

Jim Timson and Tim Platt gave us excellent service, and put us in the right car for

I just bought a used Honda from Cramer Honda – My salesman was Jim Timpson who was wonderful, he spent all afternoon finding the right fit for my needs. I was also very impressed with Tim and Troy to make sure that all the paperwork went as stress free as possible. Would I recommend Cramer Honda – absolutely. A little bit of a drive for me from North Port but the service I received out there was top notch. (

26. Walter Mokos
Well I need to say the time I spent buying a CRV at Cramer was about the only time that I found it to be a very pleasant experience. The salesman was Jim Timpson. I felt really at ease with him I left there not having to ask any questions about the CRV He spent the time and went over the whole CRV with me and my wife. I can not just say enough good things about him. A dieffienet plus for Cramer Honda. (

I had an excellent experience with Cramer, starting with an internet search for a used Honda under $18,000. I was helped by the internet manager Jim Timpson, who was very professional and engaged. I made two visits to the dealership and was well-treated by very helpful people each time. I got the car I wanted for less than my top price. The closing was expertly handled by Jorge and the finance man Troy. We got an excellent vehicle and good extended warranties. All in all, it was obvious to me that Cramer is a highly professional, ethical and attentive dealer. (

My wife and I purchased a new honda accord from Jim t. He was an outstanding salesman. Never felt rushed or misled. He exceeded my extremely high expectations. He had a very good understanding of the customer comes first mentality. I would recommend him to all my family and friends. I would definitely buy from him again. (

My salesman was Jim Timpson and the manager was Tim Platt. On March 15th I purchased a 2014 CRV-LX and am quite pleased. Both gentlemen were helpful, knowledgeable and I am most happy with my purchase. It was a pleasant experience with no pressure. If you are looking for Consumer Report’s #1 SUV, I can highly recommend Cramer Honda of Venice! (

I have been looking for a car for six months!! went through a lot of unhappiness UNTIL I came to this wonder place called Cramer Honda of Venice and met Jim Timpson. No haggling , excellent price and profession mixed with kindness. I have never had a more pleasant experience in buying a car. Jim was very attenetive. (

Having purchased a used car from Cramer Honda I must comment on the professional manner of the three salesman I worked with over a three day period. Dan, Wayne & Jim were the best and Tim from the office helped us wrap up the purchase along with Pat at the final desk before we drove away. Other dealers should send their staff to Cramer Honda and shadow these professionals on some sales to see how you treat customes, make a sale, and expect them to return! (

Jim Timpson was very professional, patient, and kind. Wasn’t overbearing at all, loved my experience at this car lot. Jim made it very simple and quick to drive off in a ’08 car for a reasonable price, it was my sister’s first car, she didn’t have much credit and Jim made things happen I’d urge anyone to come to Cramer Honda of Venice and I reside in Bradenton, Fl.

Great experience as a first time buyer! Mr. Timpson and the team at Cramer worked with me on every aspect of the car buying experience. They gave me a great deal, under what I expected, on my brand new Accord and the financing was not a hassle as well. I’ve been to other dealers before working with Mr. Timpson at Cramer Honda and I can say that I didn’t feel like a number to them, but he tried to help me get in a reliable vehicle. Thanks again!! (

My beloved 1993 Honda Accord had been getting a little bit tired these days. I knew as reliable as my car was, I definitely wanted another Honda. On Dec. 31, 2013 I thought I’d check out the new Hondas at Cramer Honda Venice, and I was very pleasantly surprised – a warm welcome awaited me! Each and every staff member was polite & knowledgeable, especially my sales associate Jim Timpson, and Tim Platt, sales manager. I am now leasing a beautiful 2013 Honda Civic, and wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone for making this a smooth transition, and yes – I LOVE MY NEW VEHICLE!!!!!

Great staff! They made buying my car a personal experience and went above and beyond to help make sure I was happy with my choice! Definitely recommend the dealership! (

Just bought new CRV from Cramer with Jim Tempson. Jim worked his butt off to find just what would suit us best !! And did so on his day off. So pleased we met up with him…He,s the best !! (

I was looking for a Lexus IS 250 with low mileage and with a best possible price (aren’t we all :)?) for several weeks, and I found on Internet at Cramer’s Honda in Venice.

Great job :). ( review)

Excellent service A++++. I contacted Cramer Honda through their website needing to get out of my 2-door coupe and looking for something that made more sense for my family. I still owed money on a car that really didn’t make sense for me to own any more since my recent career change no longer required a commute. I filled out the online contact form and was promptly contacted by Jim, the internet sales manager, who kept contact through my busy week to get an appointment. I’ve never done a trade-in, and Jim helped me through the whole process. I felt very comfortable discussing my options while my 3 kids enjoyed the children’s lounge, which was a life saver because mom was at work.
The entire staff was courteous and informative through the whole process and in the end I was ecstatic to be able to say good bye to the 2-door and take home a Honda Odyssey.
My best experience yet with a car dealership! ( & Review)

I would like to start out and say that was the best and painless customer service I have ever recived. Everyone was so friendly and helpful and just wanted me to get the best deal and I feel like I did. I would like to thank Jim Timpson for doing such a great job and all of his expert advice and help. I will definitely reccomend everyone to Cramer Honda and to go and see Jim. Thanks again! ( Review)

Just purchased a new Honda Accord after researching every car made. Salesman Jim Timpson was helpful and VERY patient – we couldn’t make up our mind – buy or lease. He answered our questions and got us into the car we wanted. Couldn’t give the finance man the same glowing report. Went into his office – one short smile, no introduction, “sign here, sign here, thanks, goodbye.” Not a warm experience. Even with that one cloud, we would still buy from Jim and the dealership again. ( Review)

My wife & I worked with Jim Timpson in purchasing two new Hondas – he could not have been better! He was professional, sincere, and understanding of our family’s needs. We were never pushed nor pressured and he worked with a team member who “jumped in” and assisted when Jim was unavailable. Overall, the process was an easy buying experience. Since owning our new Hondas, we’ve had a wonderful experience in working with the Cramer Honda service team – we will definitely be customers for awhile! ( Review)

Excellent customer service. Jim Timpson was our salesman. I visited the dealership today with my mother and brother in search of an auto for my mother. Jim was very patient and very knowledgeable. We were given an education on leasing vs. buying by Jim and his manager Tim. There was no sales pressure and my mother ended up walking out of there very happy. She decided to lease a 2013 Accord. Great Deal! Kudos to Jim and Tim. We will definitely recommend Cramer Honda and of course Jim Timpson and Tim. Thanks guys! ( Review)

After sending many emails out to various dealers and getting many phone calls back wanting me to come in and test drive their car. I told them I had all ready driven the various cars and just a price. It took many tries to get a price over the phone and they were all over the lot.
What a pleasure it was to talk to Jim Timpson at Cramer Honda Of Venice. I told him what I wanted and he called me back in about 10 minutes. His prices beat all the other dealers and his Accord had more equipment. Jim and Cramer Honda Both were very easy to deal with and Jim Timpson will see me again. (

Unbeatable price on an immaculate used Honda Odyssey van. Nice dealership (our children had a blast playing in the kid room while we were purchasing the van). Jim Timpson was very pleasant to work with! Overall, we were simply awed by the level of professionalism and courtesy that this dealership exhibited – no gimmicks, no pressure. I look forward to purchasing my next vehicle from them! ( Review)

My wife and I had spent a lot of time researching and checking out Honda Odyssey’s within a 100 mile radius of where we live. After not having much luck closer to home we decided to venture out to Venice, FL and contacted Cramer Honda. Their Internet prices were really good. Actually I believed they were too good to be true. So, I admit I went there skeptical. We had already been burned at Port Charlotte Honda where we were told the Internet prices were too low and they couldn’t honor them, they were just to get people in the door. When we arrived at 6:30pm Jim was waiting for us and took us over to the three vehicles we had talked with him about over the phone. After a couple test drives we decided to make an offer on one of them. They accepted our offer and an hour later we were on the road in a new to us 2011 Honda Odyssey EX-L with low miles and navigation. Jim was excellent to work with and so was Tim the Sales Manager. We were never pressured to buy anything, nor did they ever try to get us into a more expensive vehicle. We also got an unbelievable price. Literally thousands of dollars lower than any place we had looked prior to Cramer Honda. And on top of that we got a great deal on our trade. Cramer Honda is top notch. I can’t recommend them enough. Buying a car is one of the most stressful things, and they made it a breeze. I wish we had driven up to Venice when we first started mini van shopping so we could have avoided a couple weeks of stress. We arrived at 6:30pm and really appreciated that Jim, Tim, and Paul stayed late to take care of us and they never once made us feel bad that they were working late. Jim even called us a few minutes after we left to make sure we knew how to get back to I-75, which was good since we actually were a bit turned around. 5 stars for Jim and the team at Cramer Honda. They had never met us and treated us amazing. I have no doubt that they treat each and every customer this way. (
