I can???t believe I???m driving MY DREAM CAR!!!
December 3, 2018
I have wanted a Lexus RX since I first saw a family member drive one when I was in grade school (almost 20 yrs ago). So in October of 2017, I came here with my boyfriend to meet with AFTON in hopes of getting a Lexus RX 350 as a birthday gift... Well the numbers just did not work due to the negative equity I had to carryover from my trade-in; I was CRUSHED to say the least. My bf kept telling me you can try it again next year & I was so OVER him saying that until I realized he did it b/c he was going to propose to me a week later... (mic drop) He wanted my birthday to be memorable b/c of him not the car, lol... We got married in July of 2018!!! So here we are an entire year later, my current car is still in good condition but could use some TLC that I was going to have to pay for out of pocket. I looked into multiple other options & dealerships, but the road led me back to AFTON... It was a Sunday evening & I kept thinking about our first interaction when she told me she understood my situation b/c she had been in the same one & worked her way out of it. I couldn???t afford to wait any longer & the clock was ticking on me making the decision to refinance my current car or just get a newer one, so I looked for AFTON???s number (still in my phone from the previous year) & texted her right then... I thought ???This is CRAZY! She???s not going to remember you & it???s SUNDAY... She???s not even at work!??? I???m happy to say I was wrong... She did remember be & she texted me back promptly that same evening. By the next morning (Monday), I had texted her all of the info for my trade-in to see how much they could give me for it; by Thursday evening I was able to visit the showroom again... This time I had ZERO EXPECTATIONS! I told her I just wanted a newer car that was affordable & she said she could definitely do that. She remembered the car I really wanted from the previous year???s notes she???d saved & within 30 minutes had found a newer one in my price range... We took it for a test drive & I FELL IN LOVE, but I still tried not to get my hopes up b/c ???what are the odds this is going to work out now in less than a week???s time & I wasn???t even asking for it?!???... Well it worked! I spoke with AFTON about financing over the next two days (Friday/Saturday) then picked up MY DREAM CAR on Monday afternoon!!! AFTON was wonderful throughout the entire process. She was down to earth, relatable & kept me informed every step of the way! AFTON is AWESOME!!!
