Enjoyable used car buying experience!
December 3, 2018
I came in with the intent of squeezing in an hour of checking out a couple models in our price range, as determined by some earlier online research. Carrie greeted me and quickly had me behind the wheel of my first candidate, a 2015 Honda Fit. I knew almost immediately that this wasn't the vehicle for us. Tiny, tinny and with a highly obstructed field of vision, I couldn't believe people were actually driving these things on the freeways. Anyways, Carrie expertly located the next candidate - a '14 Ford Escape. Wow - what a difference! I could hardly wait to bring my wife in the next day for her to test drive it. Unfortunately, we couldn't make it there the next morning as we intended, and by the time we got there around 5 PM, that vehicle had been sold to another party. Fortunately, there we others to choose from. After driving a 2015 Escape and a similar-sized, but lower-priced Hyundai Sante Fe, my wife and I agreed that the Ford had the better road manners, higher tech engine and more attractive styling. Being a "Ford Certified" vehicle secured our decision and gave us the peace of mind knowing that our pre-owned vehicle with 42k miles had been thoroughly inspected and detailed, making it feel nearly NEW to us. In fact, our neighbors have already commented on how they thought we had purchased another new vehicle to go along with the 2013 Ford F-150 we purchased new from North Country Ford nearly 5 years ago. For the first time ever, we are now an entirely-Ford family ... and proud of it. Thank you, Carrie and Brad, for a great buying experience!
