As a mechanic of many years I have been to more car lots than i care to remember helping others pick a car, when I say this dealer stands alone I am not exaggerating, here is my experience and you be the judge.
After researching a couple months on the Lincoln I wanted through various sites I decided this dealer had one that interested me so I sent in an application online.
Now life has been hard on most of us, so like others my credit score doesnt reflect the hard working responsible person i truely am, and I had expectations of a long search with many pitfalls.
I was called by a gentleman named Tom who wanted to know if i had a certain car in mind, of course I already knew the exact one i wanted so I told him and he asked me to come in the next day for a test drive. All the usual things you expect when you open that door to salesmen. I arrived the next day early to have a look and get my first no of the search, Tom brought up the car and while i was on my test drive he checked over my trade in which i already knew wasnt worth much in resale value. I came back and had a seat with him, the atmosphere was relaxing and we carried on an nice conversation as he gathered the information needed for finance to check me out. At no point did I feel pressured or really even feel like i was being sold anything. A couple hours passed while I looked around the showroom at beautiful 1950's Styling, neon signs, old style gas pumps, a coke machine that vended real glass bottles, which Tom showed us as he provided a free coke, even a vintage corvette relaxing in the corner. Tom suggested that Kenny could be busy for awhile trying to find financing for me as he was receiving declines so far and we thanked him for the efforts and left as I expected the case would be. A couple hours passed and my phone rings, as I pick it up and see who is calling I made the comment to my girl, here comes the no. Kenny was on the other end when I answered and told me he had tried many places and I was approved for the loan, huh wha ?? Umm shock fades and I ask ok when can I finalize the deal. Within two more hours I was out and enjoying the new car. If you have been keeping track, thats a total of 6 hours from start to finish. Later when looking at the series of messages sent to me by credit karma I can attest to the work Kenny put in to get me approved as the list of credit inquires was numerous. Most places would not have gotten me approved or pushed for a cheaper car, more down payment, a co signer or simply said no and moved on to the next customer. If you see a car you want from this dealer do yourself a favor and stop in or call or send in an online application, This dealership is the one you have always wanted to deal with and never found.
