Great experience working with David Meltzer
December 3, 2018
I have a very good experience working with David Meltzer at Lithia Subaru to lease my new 2018 Subaru. I first inquired using Costco Auto Program website. I received two offers via email, but the one I got from Lithia was much better than the other dealer. My experience in chronological order: ??? David was flexible to accommodate my need to test drive at night. ??? He offered me to test drive 3 car models but I opted for one after I checked all three models. ??? The test drive was great and really long. David took me in a route that showed the power of Subaru. He explained and let me try every ???literally??? feature of the car whether it is electronic (e.g. eyesight, lane keep, etc) and mechanical. ??? David showed me the official MSPR and invoice for multiple VIN of the car/trim I was interested in. He also showed me the official printed Costco Auto Program discounts which is deducted from invoice (not MSPR). ??? During the first visit, David was not pushy and didn???t ask to run my credit. ??? After the first visit, I continued my communications and negotiations with David via email. I told him my requirements for payments and other, then he offered the numbers which came close to what I need. I asked him to confirm that these numbers are final and there will be NO extra fees/charges will appear when I come, and he confirmed that. ??? I checked the numbers that David gave me in Edmond???s forum and it turned out to be a good deal. ??? During the second visit, I did a second test drive. After that, I asked David to work with his finance department/manager to lower the monthly a little bit more, and after little negotiations I got what I asked for. ??? David started filling the application in front of me. He typed the required personal information in the lease application software, and he didn???t make any note of any sensitive information in external piece of paper which I really appreciated! Giving the above, I highly recommend David Meltzer at Lithia Subaru Sales.
