    Miguel Lara is the Internet Manager at Modern Nissan of Winston-Salem. He has been with the Modern Family since 2009 and "The family atmosphere and great ownership" quoted Miguel, makes working at Modern a blast! Miguel and his son Mason live in Winston-Salem and love going on family outings. On days off, you will likely find Miguel spending as much time as possible with friends and family, fishing and planning the next epic family vacation!  

    What our customers are saying about Miguel:

    "Miguel Lara, my salesman was great! He was quick to define what I wanted, pointed out all the options available that met my purchasing criteria and never tried to push me into something I didn't want or need. The test drive allowed me to really test the vehicle and I'm sure I could have driven even more if I wanted. Lastly, the negotiations were efficient, straight forward, and didn't have the "feel" you normally expect at the car dealership. I walked away knowing both I and Modern got a good deal. Thanks Miguel and Modern for a great experience."

    "We have purchased two vehicles from Modern Nissan and both times we worked with Miguel Lara to get us something we loved and could afford. This most recent purchase he worked non stop for 3 days to get me into a brand new 2013 Nissan Sentra that wasn't going to break the bank. We could not have done it without him and i'm voting he gets a raise! ;) If you're looking for a new or used vehicle go to Miguel!!"

    "My salesman Miguel was very nice and very helpful! He made my mother and I feel very welcome & comfortable! He really knows his business! I most definitely would refer people to come see Miguel! Thank you Miguel for all the help you gave me!"

    "Miguel doesn't put any pressure on you as a customer which was a huge relief. Im more than satisfied with my purchase and experience at Modern Nissan."
