Luxury at an Affordable Price
December 3, 2018
We bought our last 4 cars from Carmax. We knew we were paying more than we should be, but we did not want to deal with the high-pressure sales tactics that we had in the past. It was just easier. We decided to take a chance on Russ Darrow due to an invitation by Mason S and we were soooooo glad we did. The staff was amazing, the facility clean and classy. Even staff that was not directly associated with our purchase (Tim and Steve) came up and talked with us and made us feel very welcomed. OK, as for the cars. We were luxury car owners (Infinitis) and were hesitant to veer from considering anything other than the "traditional" luxury brands. Once again we were proven wrong!!! We test drove the CX-5 and the Mazda6 (also sat in the CX-9). These cars offer WAY more options and FUN than the other luxury cars we were test driving, at a surprisingly affordable price. Some cars feel "flimsy" (light doors, loose steering, chintzy buttons, etc). The Mazdas felt sturdy and all of the materials feel luxurious and well built....not like corners were being cut. So, of course, I had to purchase the Mazda6. I am extremely happy I accepted Mason's invitation to try out the Mazda brand, something I would not have previously considered. I also appreciate the patience Mason showed over the 2 days of test driving and indecisiveness and calls I put him through. Adam, the sales manager, was also very accommodating with a reasonable offer and working with my requests. He even had to recreate the initial paperwork a couple times as I decided to add things after it was drawn up. All I can say is Mazda is luxury at an affordable price delivered by a first class staff. We are excited to put some miles on our new car!!!
