Buying my 5th Honda
December 3, 2018
I've driven my 2008 Accord for 10 years and probably could've driven it another 10 years. But, as a teacher, with retirement only a few years away, I felt this was the time to buy a new Honda. I've been a loyal Honda buyer, but I was willing to look at other comparable cars. If I could make a deal for the car I wanted, at the right price, I thought it would be worthwhile to make payments for 4 years and have a newer car to drive when I retire in 4 years. I did my homework and researched all the current reviews for the best of the 2018 class. I then proceeded to make my rounds & explained this to at least 7 different dealerships, including 3 other Honda dealers, as well as Volvo, Acura, Audi and Mazda dealerships. But, it was Performance Honda that stepped up to work with me on my plan in a meaningful way. After talking with Marissa Bowman and Joe Stenger, I left the showroom feeling they understood my situation and hopeful I could reach a deal with them. The next morning I received a call from Joe, assuring me that he would work with me to close the deal if I could come back to Performance Honda that afternoon. I did return and with his & Marissa's relationship building skills, creative negotiating strategies and a bit of compromise on both sides, we were able to shake on the deal of my new 2018 Honda Accord Touring 2.0 with all the bells and whistles that I wanted and now could afford. I am grateful to both of them for making sure I was able to secure my 5th Honda, which I know will provide me the safe, secure (and fun!) transportation I wanted, now and in the future. Word of mouth is the best advertising in my opinion. Since I bought my new Honda, it's been my pleasure to recommend Performance Honda as the dealership that makes deals/dreams come true. They get an A+ grade from this teacher!!
