Worked with a lot of good people here, but didn't go perfect
November 23, 2018
I was able to meet a few people at the dealership. I knew exactly what car I wanted and test drove it, it ran really well so we got to the table for negotiation. I'll give a summary of the people I worked with and what I thought - Rico - Rico is the one who drew me in and seemed like an incredibly likable guy. He worked with me a ton and got me set up with my test drive and made sure I got the car I wanted. Unfortunately, he wasn't able to make it the day I came back to purchase the car. Cage - Cage is a swell guy. He just recently started, but seems genuine, right now I think the dealership has him on watch for people coming on the lot and basically the guy who filters out the serious buyers. I really liked cage, wish I worked with him further in the negotiation. Cage could do better at giving directions, but a pleasure to work with. He got me at the negotiation table then they had someone with more experience take over, like a relief pitcher. Overall, 5/5 for Cage. Jed - Jed seemed okay. I knew I wasn't going to talk a used car down a ton, unfortunately they didn't budge at all. That's fine, I'm not going to knock Jed for that, that's not on him. Just to feel like I made a deal though, we agreed I'd get all weather mats, and a full tank of gas before heading back home. After we agreed and shook on it, Jed went out to try and find some mats, and sent the car for whatever detailing/washing they do while I wait for financing. Jed couldn't find the all weather mats, whatever, I know we agreed on it, but if they don't have them they don't have them, they're like $100 on amazon. As I drove off, I got half way home ( I know I should have looked sooner, but didn't unfortunately) and saw that I had no gas. This actually irked me, I understand not having mats, but the gas station is one block over, it may seem small, but we had a deal, we shook on it, signed papers. If a man can't commit to his word, I don't recommend dealing with him. I have never sold cars, but if someone came in, bought a 20k care from me, and they got a tank of gas in the deal, I would make sure, before sending them off, that that tank was 100% filled. All in all, a good experience for the most part, but that small thing left a bad taste in my mouth.
