Excellent Buying Experience
November 5, 2018
So I flew from Washington DC to buy a used car with City Auto Mall, (Yes it is far, but if you have dealt with a lot of dealers, you can sense when you are dealing with the right individuals, and for me that matters a lot). As expected, they delivered the best buying experience I could possibly ask for. Absolutely no pressure tactics. They were extremely straight forward. In particular
John Carter: The agent I worked with, was particularly straight forward in dealing with me (which is important if you're buying from out of state). A day before I was supposed to fly in, he called and we went over all the details making sure there were no surprises among us. Even though he was not available on the day I visited to pick the car, he did arrange everything for me which made the whole process stress free. He also followed up after my 9 hour drive home to make sure everything was okay. Ask for him if you want stress free and honest buying experience.
Jack: Who picked me from the airport was extremely nice and gave me a little tour by driving me through Fort Wayne and telling me a bit about the history of the town (I know that has nothing to do with car buying, but it was important we had something to discuss for 20 minutes on our way to the dealership). I must say he is a very generous and good man. And if you have to get a ride from the airport to the dealership, definitely ask for him.
Alec: Delivered to my expectation, explaining to me details about the car and taking me on a test drive. He made sure to help me go through the process easily so I could set off on time. The finance person was also straight and there was absolutely no hidden fees or unwanted charges.
The only thing was that I left the dealership with little gas in the tank. Which was not nice since I had a long drive ahead. But that was understandable because it was weekend and late and their filling station unit was closed but I think they could have done that earlier before my arrival. On the balance I am highly satisfied and will travel to buy from them again.
I drove the car to DC in 9 hours and it delivered to my expectation.
