My service has, and continues to be nothing short of impeccable at Avondale Mazda. As a first time car buyer, I went there with all the fears and anxieties that are generally accepted with such an experience. Would I get a good deal? How would I know which car to buy? Could I afford one I liked? Would the salesperson be scheming and conniving as the movies portray? Perhaps elsewhere, but certainly not at Avondale Mazda. From my initial buying experience, complete with a ringing of a pretty cool gong to celebrate my step into real adulthood, and the debt associated with it, to the recent service I had done on my barely-over-5,000 mile-broken-in car, I have been nothing short of impressed. From the day Landon, car salesman extraordinaire, handed over the keys to my rocking vehicle, I have loved every moment driving this car. I know, I know it's not a Mazda 3, but hey it works for me. Oh, and don't even get me started on the gas mileage!!!! I average 32 city and smile as I fill up my tank for less than the cost of a McDonald's Extra Value Meal (not really, but it's darn close) As for my recent service, I took ole Mabel in for her scheduled first oil change. (Yes my car is named for an 80-year-old lady. Sadly she doesn't give good hugs, unless you count those turns, nor does she smell like fresh baked cookies, unless I buy one of those fancy air fresheners) The oil change was fairly priced around $50, which to some may seem expensive, but since they included a multipoint inspection including my tires and other critical engine parts, it was well worth it. Another key point to mention was the scheduling. I called on a Thursday, scheduled my appointment for that same Saturday afternoon. Having a previous engagement that afternoon, I dropped off my sweet whip at 10 am and was greeted by Jennifer. Not only did Jennifer greet me with a smile, she made sure to go over the minutia of the inspection with me in order to ease my aforementioned anxieties. After all, I didn't want to trust ole Mabel to just any local chop shop of an organization. Not only was Jennifer okay with me dropping it off early, she gave a prompt timeline as to its completion (around 2 pm). As I pulled out of the lot in my girlfriend's car, I had complete faith in the people at Avondale Mazda. A mere 3 hours later, and one hour prior the deadline, my ringtone of "Back in Black" began pouring out of my cell phone speakers like water from a burst dam. Entranced in the 80's moment, and busy checking out stuff at the local thrift shop, I let it ring to voicemail. After buying my newest find, a sweet vintage boom box, I called my voicemail and Jennifer had left a message telling me my car was done. Not only had they performed the oil change, they also filled up my tires and checked those pesky fluids hat keep need refilling. Around 3 pm I strolled in to pick up my car, and once again there was my friend Jennifer to greet me. A bag of popcorn, some coffee and an inflatable mini Mazda beach ball later, I was ready to settle up and take Mabel for a spin and man did she purr all the way home. Please, please, please don't take the attempt at humor in this post to mean anything but the utmost sincerity. No I'm not getting paid to say this, although a coupon for a free oil change couldn't hurt, I genuinely had, and continue to have the most positive experience with the folks at Avondale Mazda, and will recommend them to anyone and everyone in the market for a truly no hassle, customer friendly car buying experience.
