My husband and I recently purchased a vehicle with the help of Erik! He is a wonderful, down to earth guy that definitely knows his stuff. He also was very knowledgeable on which vehicles are good for those with small children, which is what we needed. He really helped us get what we needed when our budget was set and it almost seemed we needed something that our budget couldn’t quite stretch for. He made things work for us and we are so thankful. He’s also really fun to talk with. We definitely made a new friend and we recommend you ask for ERIK when you go here! It will be a good experience!

Easy, hassle-free, and FUN car buying experience! Most people dread car shopping due to drawn-out negotiations, lack of inventory, or pushy sales professionals. Not here! Larson Hyundai made my car buying experience fast, simple. and FUN! Sales consultants Erik and Aleks both helped me drive away in the perfect car. These two are knowledgeable, easy to work with, and incredibly likable. Not only did they thoroughly answer my questions about everything from Powertrain warranties to gas mileage, but I never felt pressured or obligated to purchase a vehicle. Garrett in finance streamlined my purchasing experience and thoroughly explained contracts so I could understand documents and their impact, and feel informed and confident in my decisions. Mike the GM came out and spoke with me about my car, and one of the staff members even let me use their phone charger. So many car dealerships advertise being “family-owned” or “customer-focused,” but Larson Hyundai succeeds where other dealerships fail in making customers feel understood and valued. I highly recommend buying your next car at Larson Hyundai!

I was incredibly hesitant to purchase a new vehicle due to not having a car payment in over 10 years, and I have to say that working with Montana is the best. He helped me move past my anxieties about purchasing a vehicle and staying within my budget. I'm pretty sure he was better at staying within my monthly payment limit than I was. I know a lot of car salesmen come across as disingenuous, but I felt as though he was really straight forward with me. He also helped me after that purchase was complete (beyond the 100% satisfaction guarantee) to make sure I was happy with my purchase. I highly recommend Montana Winchester as a salesperson, and because he works for Larson Hyundai I also recommend them as a place to get your next vehicle. I can't speak for everyone's experience, but I'm glad I went there and got to work with Montana.

Shopping for a second car, my wife researched the 2020 Hyundai Kona on line and found excellent consumer reviews. She visited Larson's Hyundai where she met Erik Martinson. When I later asked her about her experience at Larson's, she said she was happy to have found her Kona in the color and with all "the bells and whistles" she wanted. Three days later I joined her at Larson's Hyundai where I got my first view of the Kona. It suited my wife perfectly as family and friends all agree. Erik was very committed to us becoming a Larson's customer and stated several times that he would do whatever it took for us to become a Larson's Hyundai customer now and in the future. We were already aware of the great value and reputation that the Kona offers, so it was nice to be allowed to say what we needed in order to have a totally positive shopping experience. Many thanks to Erik Martinson and Larson's Hyundai for putting the wants and needs of their customer first.

We were so worried about the typical automotive sales stereotype, but we needed to replace a vehicle and decided to visit Larson Hyundai. I am so thrilled with my new car, and everyone took great care of me and my family while we were there. Dana was so helpful and easy to work with, and Rachid made the financing portion very easy to understand and he wasn't pushy at all! I highly recommend this dealership!!

Erik - you are AMAZING! Thank you for my new Kona, it's the perfect car for me. I had a wonderful experience with Larson Hyundai and would highly recommend it to anyone. Erik is an incredibly attentive and friendly and REAL car salesman... I'm aware that sounds like an oxymoron but he made me feel like a friend and even congratulated me on the recent raise that brought me there in the first place. He got to know me and made me feel good. I left not only with my brand new car that I love but with a smile on my face - that was not just there because of the car... the finance department considering they have to be a finance department and deal with the nitty gritty not so fun payment stuff was also friendly and helpful. I was happy with all the payment options and even left with a GREAT maintenance package that will keep my car purring like a kitten. My first BRAND SPANKING NEW CAR EVER! I had a great experience and I love my car! Thank you Erick and Larson Hyundai!

Erik made the process of purchasing a vehicle very easy and enjoyable, especially during these weird times. He made us feel happy with our purchase and gave a 110% of effort into actually talking to us and getting to know us. The general manager even made a point to say hello and thank us for doing business with them. Thanks Erik and the Larson group!

Worked with Michael Alvarez in purchasing a 370z and he was so helpful! Made the buying experience so much less stressful! He deserves a 5/5!! Definitely recommending my friends and family to purchase a vehicle from him. Only reason I am giving a 4/5 is because I did have a bit of an issue with the guy working in finance. However, I went back into the dealership and was able to resolve the issue.

A day filled with ups and downs ended in a very positive way. I text with Dana for a couple days about a couple cars but couldn't make it work with my budget when I went in and test drove the red 2020 Sonata SEl Plus. I loved it. But I left. Dana text me after I got home to ask if they could try to find me a different interest rate that might make the purchase possible. Then I got a text saying they found a way to make it work for the red car i really wanted. Jay and Dana did an amazing job working for me to get the terms I wanted and the car I wanted. Panoramic roof, Bose stereo system, navigation and remote start to name a few luxuries offered in tge car I bought. Dana and Jay did an amazing job for me. Thank you so much my percentage rate was 6% lower than the previous approved loan I walked in with. Thank you so much Larson. This is my second purchase from Larsons and I'm very impressed with the lengths you and the staff will go to make a sale.

Being a first time buyer was very stressful. I had spent a whole weekend looking for good deals for a new car having no credit. I found some pretty good deals but decided to think about it and find better ones being in the situation i am in. This dealership was my last stop and they actually reached out to us. My salesman was Erik and he was very honest. He told it how it is and did not beat around the bush. It was quite comforting especially i am a first time buyer with no credit. I ended up getting a perfect first car with a great deal having no credit and with a co-signer, with the car still having my name. Highly recommend if looking for n honest dealership.

We had one car in mind and ended up buying two! We had such an amazing experience here. I 100% stand by my decisions of purchasing two vehicles from this dealership and i would 100% recommend this dealership to everyone. I highly recommend Erik Martinson! He was amazing!! He scheduled us a last minute appointment even though he was packed with appointments and he was extremely helpful! Also Rachid Tassi was a pleasure to work with. My experience was overall the best one i have had at any dealership. We tested so many cars and Erik made sure we had the right match. He was not pushy, easy going, and overall amazing! A big thanks to these amazing employees!

Amazing service and team! Appreciated the prompt response from Erik after my inquiry, as well as the flexibility when scheduling my appointment. In addition to the wide selection they offer, I was most happy with my salesman Ron and the GM Mike; they were genuinely eager to help and made the process for a first-time buyer very simple. Every staff member I came across sincerely greeted and/or congratulated me. They go above and beyond here! Will definitely return for future purchases and highly recommend you contact them when considering a car (they also sell motorcycles and boats).

My wife and I had a really good car buying experience here. Joey Coleman (salesman) made every attempt to ensure the experience was comfortable and easy. I rode in on my bike one day and was purchasing a vehicle within 2 days. This was mainly because of the customer service provided by Joey. We had a snafu with the understanding of what the warranty covered and the length of it, but overall, we love the vehicle we purchased. The finance manager Rachid Tassi did an excellent job of making the numbers fit our budget, thank you! I would highly recommend the Robert Larson's Hyundai to you if you're looking for a well maintained used vehicle. Go see Joey!

I dealt with Erik Martinson. He was friendly, professional and a no pressure type sales person. Was a pleasure to work with. He even came in on his day off, even when I told him it was not necessary, when I picked up my car to make sure there were no hiccups and to make sure I had all my questions answered. Recommend him as the sales person to deal with.

They were able to help us get the very best APR possible and were amazing from the moment we walked in, to the moment we drove off the lot. Even offering to go out of his way to make us totally comfortable while waiting to finish paperwork. I highly recommend Larson Hyundai to any one who wants an amazing car buying experience!!

I have bought many cars over my adult life, and I have never had it go so smoothly. I have been in the dealership for less than 2 hours and have already been through paperwork and test driving. In 20 minutes i will have my keys and be on my way. Thank you Erik for being the gold standard in car sales. My faith in automotive sales people was greatly restored by you. I can honestly recommend buying a car from Larson Hyundai for whatever you are interested in.

In the past decade, Hybrid cars have become more and more available and convenient to drivers. At Robert Larson’s Hyundai of Tacoma, we are proud contributors to the hybrid group and want everyone to know why we choose to love hybrids. Hybrids have come a long way, now found in every vehicle class from luxury vehicles to trucks, we have seen a lot of variety. There are many reasons why Hybrids are making their mark on the car industry; so here are a few pros that come with owning a Hybrid vehicle.


1. Hybrids are well known for their excellent fuel efficiency. Hybrids have paved the way to a cleaner alternative to fuel our vehicles. There are more ways to contribute to saving the planet, and hybrid vehicles have made their contribution. They run completely from a mixture of gas and electricity, therefore reducing the pollution in the air. Also, these cars are more often than not built with lightweight materials that allow its energy consumption to be reduced significantly.

2. Yes, what you have heard is correct! In the state of Washington, owners of electric vehicles and hybrids are subject to a tax break. The plug in technology that is paired with these vehicles has gained an incentive for helping keep Washington a green state. The states incentive program (HB 2042) offers electric and alternative fuel vehicles will make these vehicles more accessible to everyone. For information regarding the specifics of this bill, please visit the Washington State Legislature website: https://app.leg.wa.gov/billsummary?BillNumber=2042&Initiative=false&Year=2019

3. Hybrid vehicles are in high demand. The evolution of hybrids is miraculous. Recently, more car brands are offering their models with hybrid options. Hyundai specifically offers five hybrid models; (2019) Sonata Hybrid, (2019) Sonata Plug-in Hybrid, (2020) Sonata Hybrid, (2020) Ioniq Hybrid, and the (2020) Ioniq Plug-in Hybrid. Because of the high demand, you will get more bang for your buck when it is time to trade or sell.


As hybrids are growing in popularity, so is the Hyundai of Tacoma’s inventory.  The technology of hybrids has come a long way since the 1900’s when they were first introduced. We now see how these manufacturers like Hyundai have brought them into the range of possibilities for all drivers. As we become more environmentally friendly, we hope to see you in our showroom finding out how you can join the movement!
