A Wonderful Suprise
November 6, 2018
I got home from work and my wife told me we needed to take a drive to West Bend. Apparently she'd been working out a deal on a 2017 4Runnner TRD Off Road. For over a year I'd been researching and eyeing them up, but never quite managed to pull the trigger. We arrived at the dealership at 7:00pm and were greeted by Jacob, our salesman. He had the truck we were going to look at all set to go. After a decent test drive, and a test drive in a few other models, we were impressed with the 4Runner. We went in to the building to talk details, and in the background they had "Fearless" from Pink Floyd's 1971 Meddle album playing. When was the last time you ever heard that song playing in the wild? There's a line in the song about "climbing that hill" which I like to interpret as going 4-wheelin'. The one thing that I was worried about was what they'd give me for my trade. I knew what I wanted and what they'd probably offer. It was a suprise when they came back with an offer that was $1,500 more than I expected. That sold us on the deal, particularly with the price they were offering on the 4Runner! I assumed they want us to come back another day to take care of paperwork, but everyone involved in the transaction stuck around until well after 10:00pm to get things done. Jacob has followed up several times and I could't be happier with my new truck and the buying experience.
