The first actual car buyin experience
November 5, 2018
So I started looking at vehicles when my Honda decided it wanted to blow its engine apart on me, up until this point, I have mostly made car purchases of $1000-$1500 off of Craigslist. This is my first one through a dealership, I have credit issues as well. Mike B., (Not Butler himself) called me with a few different options that would work with my payment range and credit range, and all three had the same down payment, and price range where I needed to be with the difference of $10 either way, so I was not locked into one "magical" vehicle, but had a pick of the litter with three options! I was able to pick up my 2012 Hyundai Accent that was a hatchback, 6 spd manual. It was a dream car for me, minus the brand, but all the options I wanted, I couldn't say no! Mike made everything easy for me, paperwork was a breeze, insurance, was a breeze.
The common problem most dealerships have is you have to sit with three or more people to buy a car, Salesman, Manager, finance manager, etc. Here it was easy, I worked with Mike Baldwin (Sorry Mike, I butchered your last name) with every step of first seeing the car to delivery. I made last minute changes on the day of delivery due to work, pushed it back a day, went from transfer plates to new ones, etc, not even demanding an explanation of why, just said it was do-able. I showed up finally to do the paperwork, and do the delivery, and it was hassle free, sign here, explained things if I didn't know, not a rush. Placed the plates on, and was off with my new (to-me) car! The fact I had a vehicle that I could drive off that was worth more than $1000, and a vehicle that I didn't already have to make plans to take to the shop the next day was an excitable and exhilarating thing for me as a first.
The typical "car dealership" mentality did not sink in with me while shopping here, I would highly recommend this dealership to anyone who is looking for a decent used vehicle, the prices are right where they should be, they make sure the vehicle is good to go. 10/10 would buy again from here.
