My Toyota of Wallingford Experience
November 6, 2018
Picture in your mind an aspiring college senior. Ready to embark on a journey to his last year in college. A journey that cannot be completed without his trusty jeep cherokee from 1999 right by his side. But suddenly, tragedy strikes. Two hundred and eighty thousand miles later, the jeep has breathed its last breath. A mere 24 hours before classes start, our hero is faced with quite the literal as well as figurative roadblock. How will he ever make it to school? With an overwhelming amount of car dealerships calling the great state of Connecticut home, I placed several phone calls to quite a few local vehicle providers. I found my reception at Toyota of Wallingford to be the warmest and most welcoming after speaking to an internet sales assistant named Amanda. This would not be the first Toyota in the family, so our hero's parents were not hard to convince. They set off on a very last minute attempt to acquire a vehicle. End Scene. Our hero arrives at Toyota with hopes of driving off into the sunset in a hot set of wheels. A genuine and smiling face greets them. "Hello welcome to Toyota of Wallingford, how can I help you?" Within 30 seconds we were set up with a salesman. A salesman with exceptional facial hair. A salesman by the name of Mike Cote. This particular salesman was exceptionally knowledgeable and answered every question about any car on the lot with ease. After taking into account our perilous situation and needs, he assured us that our hero would in fact, make it to class on time. *sigh of relief* Mr. Cote continued to inform us about all of our realistic options and we narrowed our search down to a Toyota Corolla or a Toyota Prius. I decided to test drive the Prius. Some paperwork was quickly completed and we were promptly lead outdoors to a shiny white Prius in pristine condition. Mr. Cote demonstrated the endless features available in this car and after loading up my favorite music track, we hit the road. I was just as impressed with the cars performance as I was with Mr. Cote's knowledge. I fell in love with the car on Route 5. After returning, lo and behold, Mr. Cote's stunning daughter Amanda showed up, who I formerly spoke with on the phone, and engaged us in conversation, informing us more about the car while her father completed pricing estimates and paperwork. After Mike returned, he sent us to Bill DiChello, an extremely charming fellow with remarkable facial hair who made the paperwork process as seamless as I could imagine. The rest is history. I am extremely and thoroughly satisfied with my experience at Toyota of Wallingford and if I ever find myself in need of another vehicle, I know where I will return to. I would like to thank Mike Cote, Bill DiChello, Amanda Cote, and of course Jesus Christ himself for making my car buying experience as smooth and enjoyable as I could ever expect.
