Excellent Experience W/ Impreza Purchase
December 3, 2018
I originally saw a 2002 Subaru Impreza WRX on the Bertera website a couple of months ago, but decided I could find something cheaper on Craigslist. After looking at about ten different cars and realizing they were all either abused or rusty over the course of two months, I contacted Bertera and asked if they were negotiable on the 2002 WRX. They were very friendly, responding to my query instantly, and so I set up an appointment to go check out the car later that evening. I met with the salesman Jonathan who was very friendly and spent time with me and my wife giving us the background of the car. The car was in pretty good shape, minus a few blemishes expected of a more than ten year old car. Jonathan explained that the car was owned by the same owner, who purchased the car from Bertera new and had it serviced there consistently. After going for a test drive, I decided I wanted the car and me and Jonathan sat down to discuss the price. At no point did I ever feel pressure what so ever, which was really refreshing for a dealership. It was more of a "this is our best price, just let us know" situation, which made the buying experience very comfortable. Jonathan worked up the numbers and came out with a very competitive price. I asked him if they could do just a little better and after speaking with his manager, Jonathan told me they would meet my request. I was very happy with my purchase and Jonathan kept me updated over the next two days about registering, detailing, and inspecting the car. He clearly tried very hard to get me into the car ASAP and I was very grateful for that after having been without a car for 2 months. Overall, the experience was very low pressure, very quick, and enjoyable. Hopefully when I get out of law school, I'll be back to Bertera to buy a newer Subaru!
