Customer Stories:

Jim and I met Joe Palmiero in 1984 when we purchased our first Toyota Camry. That sparked a 37 year relationship that feels like a family.
Joe, together with the product, the Sales Department and the outstanding Service Department with Darla and Kim are the reasons I continue to drive a Toyota and deal exclusively with Palmiero Toyota in Meadville, PA.

All of our transactions have been pleasant and professional without pressure of any kind.

Two experiences stand out in my memory that make Palmiero Toyota so dear to me. The first one was when a young man went through a stop sign and totaled our Camry near Meadville. We were taken to Meadville Hospital, treated and released without a car.
We called Palmiero and they sent a driver to the hospital to pick us up and return to the dealership suggesting we take a courtesy car home for the weekend. We were so grateful for this outstanding, compassionate service from Joe and his employees.
The latest experience occurred when a deer hit and totaled the Avalon that was so special to me. I was advised by the insurance company, late on a Friday afternoon, that I was again without a car. Of course, I called Allison and no one else. I told her what I wanted. She delayed her travel plans by a few hours and I met her early Saturday morning. She introduced me to Lance who helped me choose my next Toyota.
When my new RAV4 arrived at Palmiero, he sent a driver to Erie to drive me to Meadville to pick it up.
Again, professional and compassionate service.
37 years of outstanding service by professional, compassionate people.
Thank you Joe, Allison, Darla, Kim, Lance and everyone whose picture hangs on the wall of your waiting room.

We bought a used car from Joe way back in the 60s when he had a dealership in Linesville….and have been dealing with Palmiero Toyota ever since…don’t even know how many cars starting with a Camry? Loved our Avalon…our Sienna Van…..then went into the Ravs. Darla and Brian Harrison can vouch for the years we’ve dealt with Palmiero’s.

Dare not go near Joe. Every time I do, I end up with a new car ? “sight unseen.” Always delivered my car to Hilton Head. Best service ever.

We have long been a fan of Joe and Linda.

In 1976 we bought our first of many automobiles from Joe: a Plymouth Volare station wagon (bright red),

chosen on the lot at Griffin motors on lower Park Avenue in Meadville.

Our best wishes to you,

My first experience with the Palmiero family was approximately 25 yrs ago when I started working at a local law firm that represented Joe and Linda and Palmiero Toyota – and subsequently Allison when she became principally involved in the Dealership. Joe, Linda and Allison were always pleasant and professional and I always enjoyed the working relationship. In 2008, I purchased a Toyota Solara from Palmiero (that I still own) and have had most of the Solara’s servicing performed at the dealership. The employees I’ve dealt with and service I experience with Palmiero’s Service Department, is two thumbs up!

Congratulations to the Palmiero family and the Dealership’s 40th year in our community.
