That's strange - my wife and I were looking for a second car not too long ago and one of the places we dealt with was Pacific Mazda - and they were probably one of the best. At least our salesman was.
We looked at Hyundai (our main car is a Hyundai Veracruz) - was looking at a Genesis Coupe and others. They were super pushy, and generally NOT pleasent to deal with.
I called up Mazda one day and spoke with a sales guy, he was helpful, polite and we went in to look at a couple of cars and I really enjoyed working with him. He offered me a discount on a 2010 Mazda 3 Sport - and laid it out on the table and said "call me if you are interested, but I won't keep bugging you every 2 days - I may call in a few weeks to touch base - thats all". Pretty much the exact opposite to what we were used to dealing with at Hyundai.
In the end we went to Toyota and got a 2009 Yaris RS 5door (MT). They were also very good to deal with.
Our first new car was a Hyundai, then we traded it in for the Veracruz. This was the first time we did lots of looking around at other dealerships, and my faith in car dealerships and salesmen has been renewed. I don't think I will ever go back to Victoria Hyundai except for service...they are just the exact opposite of the other dealerships we went to.
Now to be fair - they are MUCH better now than they used to be. We thought things had much improved when we got our second new car there (from the first time a few years ago) - but I really think they still have a long way to come.
If I want a Hyundai again in the future, I'll go to Duncan.
