Good car, good deal, great service
December 3, 2018
I was looking for a small reasonable priced car to use as a spare. On Thursday January 18, Courtesy Ford had a 2005 Nissan Sentra base model with low miles advertised that was just over my budget. I called to make sure the vehicle was still available and spoke with the salesman. His name was with Jedi Brown. He was professional and pleasant on the phone and confirmed that it was still on the lot. When I arrived at Courtesy Ford a gentleman greeted me and I told him I had an appointment to see Jedi. He told Jedi and in moments I was shaking Jedi's hand. We went straight to the Nissan and took it for a drive. The Nissan was actually even nicer than I imagined. Very clean in and out. It ran and handled very well. I told Jedi that although this was not a very expensive car, there were a few other vehicles I was going to look at before I made my decision. Jedi did try to make the sale (that is his job). He also understood that I was not going to make my decision right then and there. Without feeling the pressure of being "turned over" he introduced me to his sales manager Phillip. Phillip explained that they would like to earn my business and sell the car and told me if the car in question would work please let them know. After looking at other vehicles in the same price range (both at dealers and from private parties), it was becoming clear that the little Nissan at Courtesy was maybe the best deal for the money that I would find. On Sunday the 21st, Jedi called me to let me know that The Nissan Sentra was still available. He also told me that they were able to get the pricing to fit my budget. I told him thank you and that I would be the next day to purchase the vehicle. Monday was Jedi's day off but he arraigned to meet me at Courtesy Ford in the morning. How nice was that? Again this was an inexpensive car and a small cash deal by today's standard. I do not believe I could have been treated better by any dealership in the area or maybe anywhere no matter what. I did look at a limited edition Mustang, just for fun I am sure that if that was what I was looking for the experience would have exactly been the same. Good Job Jedi, good job Courtesy! Since 1977, as a family, we have owned 8 Nissan's (nine now). Perhaps next year when we trade in our 2013 Nissan Rouge for a new SUV, we will need to look a Ford. Courtesy Ford!
