Grumpy Old Man Review of "Too Good to be True"
November 6, 2018
I must say, it is rare to have a "perfect day," but I got to experience that yesterday. I had bought a 2009 Nissan GTR sight unseen back in 2008, and had to finally except the realization that I was too old to drive it or appreciate what the vehicle was capable of. Took it in for service at Jackie Cooper and had the pleasure of dealing with Joey, and Jacob, the GTR certified mechanic. I realized it was time to finally let my GTR go, but wanted to stay with Nissan given the "professionalism" displayed by the service department. So sight unseen, I call Pierce, the New Car Sales Manager, and order a 2018 Nissan Maxima that he had on the lot. Just to push it to him, I asked if he could throw in some all season floor mats and a trunk protector, and he did not hesitate. So I go off yesterday to trade in my GTR for a Maxima. What an incredible experience. You can't even make this stuff up, but the staff was incredible. Starting with Todd, the sales agent. It was a cold and rainy day, and the guy pulled out all of the stops to make sure I was getting what I signed up for...truly an incredible sales agent. Then I get handed off to "MJ," likewise a professional who knows his business and didn't push or pressure anything. Yet another "class act" at Jackie Cooper. Now here's the "kicker." having returned home in the new Maxima, I find I actually like it more than my former GTR (go figure.) It's xxxx getting older, but Nissan is becoming a "force" in the auto world...I feel like I totally lucked out and had the best Trade/Sales experience anyone could imagine. Thank you Jackie Cooper Nissan for affording me a "perfect day,' as it took my breath away.
