CR-V Touring - 2016
November 5, 2018
Spent 4 months researching possible replacements for my 2002 CR-V. Finally decided on sticking with that model. Visited another dealership to test drive; salesman there was very gung-ho about getting me to sit down and talk deal, even though I indicated I wasn't ready. Ultimately was too pushy (very old school sales for a young salesman) and said some things that didn't make sense (like it would cost $300 extra if they had to get a car from another dealership). Decided to check options in Bellevue. Even though they didn't have any cars on the lot with the trim I desired, they said "no problem, let's see if we can agree on a price, then we'll find the car for you". Settled on a price that my research indicated was fair to me, although they'll still make money (no doubt). Brian & Rachel, although new salesmen, did a good job of letting me dictate the pace at which I wanted to shop & then negotiate (over several visits); Tony was very open in the negotiation phase as Sales Mgr; really easy to deal with - no pressure at all. Tari pointed out two ways for me to save an extra $1500 as we finalized the paperwork. When I need another Honda, I'll go there first next time and will tell all my friends about them.
