Review of Patrick White
November 6, 2018
I have had a Honda CR-V for almost 14 years. Before I purchased it, back in April 2003, I spent 8 months researching vehicles. I compared small SUV's-price, safety, maintenance, read Consumer Report, test drove other brands and finally, realized the Honda CR-V was the best car for me. I purchased it and have loved every minute of driving. I have never had any trouble with it, still have the same clutch, no repairs, other than regular oil changes, vehicle maintenance and one flat tire.
After reading about a few different brands, I decided to go back to Honda. I wanted a mid-size SUV and I knew the Honda Pilot was the right car. We walked inside and Patrick White, who would be our Salesman, came up to us and introduced himself. I was immediately at ease with him. We seemed to be on the same page right away. I told him I was looking, but not yet ready to buy anything. He actually acknowledged that he wanted us to go home and think about it. He told us about the Pilot and all of its features. He answered a ton of questions, one in particular, whether to lease or buy. We test drove the car and immediately, I knew it was the right one for me. Patrick was so easy to talk to, we immediately felt comfortable with him. I loved the car but wanted to think about it for a few days. He told me to research online and really get familiar with the available features. We came back the next weekend and drove the Pilot Touring again. Patrick helped me get to know the different features and showed us how it drives in snow. He drove in a snowy lot and did several maneuvers, showing us the traction, braking and turn radius. It was amazing.
We came back in and discussed lease vs buy. I decided to lease with an option to buy. Patrick walked us through everything and made the process so easy. While the final papers were completed, Patrick had the car set up and ready to go. He ran through some last minute tips to allow us to drive off the lot feeling confident in our purchase. He did a fantastic job, no pressure, allowing us to ask questions, try out features in the car., etc. We have already gone back to ask more questions, and he was happy to steer (pun) us in the right direction. Overall, it was a very easy, comfortable process dealing with him. I have my dream car and couldn't be more pleased. I would recommend Patrick White to anyone wanting to buy a Honda. He is a wonderful salesperson--friendly, knowledgeable, easy-going, great sense of humor, and most importantly, not pushy. Patrick deserves an A+!!!
