James (Jamie) Miller of Garber GMC/Buick
November 5, 2018
I hate dealing with pushy, "What will it take for you to buy this car today?!" car salesmen. Some of these clowns don't even allow a person to get out of their car before descending upon you like buzzards.
A couple of weeks ago I visited Garber's used car lot. I was allowed to walk down an isle of SUVs and study them before Jamie came up and introduced himself to me. He ask me what I was looking for. After telling him I needed an SUV to sometimes act as a pick-up truck for weekend projects, Jamie suggested the Honda CR-V. (There were other very nice and more pricey SUVs on the lot but Jamie did not attempt to push me to buy them) As he and I were checking out the Honda, I ask if he knew how to fold up the rear seats to make room for cargo. Jamie found the owners manual and showed me the instructions then taking his time proceeded to fold up the seats. During the test drive he answered my questions about the Honda's technical details. Back at Garber Jamie gave me a free Car Fax about the CR-V and he explained the various service warranty programs available. I told him I needed to tell my wife about the Honda so she could come take a test drive. Jamie gave me his card and encouraged me to call to set up an appointment.
That night when my wife got home from work I told her about all the SUVs I had seen that day as I had visited 4 other dealerships. When I told her about the Honda at Garber, I said she would not believe the really nice salesman at Garber who allowed me to study the cars without pressuring me to buy.
On her day off my wife test drove the Honda and she told me about a similar pleasant experience she had talking with Jamie about purchasing the car.
On a day when my wife and I were both off, we met Jamie, to see if we could come to a financial agreement about the Honda. After praying about it, my wife and I knew what we could afford. Jamie presented us with several offers with our downpayment, trade in and what we would finance, with and without the warranty programs. We decided not to buy the warranty and our predetermined price was within three dollars! Jamie never pushed us to buy anything extra, he only explained what he could offer us. When we said "no" that was it.
He had the Honda completely cleaned, all fluid levels topped off and a full tank of gas. Even a recall on this vehicle was repaired.
I encourage anyone looking for a like new, preowned vehicle to go to Garber GMC/Buick and ask for James (Jamie) Miller.
