Believe these reviews!
March 5, 2015
We decided the vehicle we wanted - Land Rover LR4. We wanted a late model used vehicle. There were certain options that were mandatory and so we started narrowing our search. There were no vehicles remotely close to where we live, so we expanded our search online. Came across this business via an online ad. The vehicle looked perfect, the price and mileage were in our budget. I was quite a bit nervous about making a 4 hour drive just to look at a vehicle and asked several questions. We talked to Bryan on Monday and said we planned on arriving first thing Wednesday morning. He promised that he would not sell the car until we looked at it. Being a natural born skeptic, I looked up other vehicles in the area to check out in case this vehicle was not as represented (I have had a few misrepresented vehicles over the years and after a long ride to look at them, they were not what I had been told - not a very reassuring way to start a sale). I also looked up this business for online reviews and felt much better about making the trip based on their reviews. We got in to town late the night before our scheduled meeting and we drove down to where the vehicle was located and looked at it from the road. The business is a small shop as someone mentioned. One thing to note about that - my brother flew across country to buy a used vehicle from a large dealership with a good reputation. Less than 3 months later, and under 3000 miles later the engine died on a 4 year old vehicle and the dealer offered no solution at all, nor did the car maker - he was out the $7,000 for a new engine. Bigger does NOT always mean better. Now back to the review. We met Bryan the next morning at the appointed time. The owner also came over and introduced himself. The vehicle was EXACTLY as described. Bryan walked us through the vehicle and its features and possibly for the first time in my life when dealing with an auto sale, it felt like we were just hanging out and chatting about this nice vehicle. Very laid back and friendly. After a test drive, I knew my wife was sold. Now it was my turn to start the haggling with the "salesman". Unfortunately, there was no haggling whatsoever. I was kind of all revved up to go in to "smart shopper" mode, but Bryan immediately came up with the figures. After he wrote out the numbers and handed them to me, I did not even know what to say for a minute - not usually a problem for me. He offered a little better price for their vehicle than I thought he would and a little more than what I thought he would for our trade in. It was all so non-dramatic and simple. We called our banker and they could not come close to the interest rate that Bryan got for us with one of their companies. Easily the smoothest transaction I have ever completed in a lifetime of buying new and used cars and trucks. If you run across a vehicle here, you will not be disappointed if you make the trip. I was impressed enough, that even being 4 hours from my house, when we are again in the market for a vehicle, I will give Bryan a call first to see what they have or can get. That is driving by a lot of auto dealerships and I will not hesitate to do it again. Thanks to the whole team for a great transaction.
