An Excellent Local Dealership
December 3, 2018
I "cold called" Gates, talked to someone named "Tara" and asked her a general question about the Nissan incentives. We were planning to go the VERY NEXT morning to Crowley Nissan in Bristol, CT and buy a 2018 Nissan Frontier truck. After she answered my general question, she asked some about the exact model, features, color, price, etc. we were looking for. Soon I was explaining all of that, and - - surprise - - she said they have the exact truck we wanted on their lot! It also had a value-added package with a few more features than we had planned on, including sonar and heated seats, which we had wished for. She asked how much we were planning to spend, said she would check with her manager, called me right back, and matched the price we were going to pay! Bottom line is that we didn't have to drive the 50 minutes along a challenging route to Bristol, CT, and got more in the package for the truck we wanted, at the price we wanted, at our local dealer! She suggested we prearrange the financing (which was for 36 months and 0% interest offered by Nissan this month), and I filled out the online finance form. We went there the next morning. She greeted us, had the truck parked in front, went over the features, went inside, and we agreed to the deal! Badda-boom, badda-bang! (We also appreciated the small gesture of her getting a cup of coffee and a bottle of water for us.) She then walked us through the various dealership areas that we would be using in the future, introduced us to the Service Manager and then the Finance Director, who went over the contract, which we signed. At every step Tara was on the ball. We appreciated her helpfulness, efficiency, knowledge, and friendliness. She even went the extra step of setting up my husband's I-phone to connect with the truck and showed us the radio, tape, etc. features. The truck was detailed, washed, and looked terrific when we drove it home. We're happy to have found a hassle-free deal with pleasant and helpful people, Nissan incentives, and a few free oil changes and tire rotations thrown in - - all at our local dealer within an easy 15 minute drive!
