Test drive the NEW CH-R..Fall in LOVE!!!
October 17, 2017
We stopped in to the dealership about 6 weeks ago, to have our 2012 Corolla serviced. We always look in the showroom to kill time. We immediately noticed a very different kind of car, the new, 2018 CH-R. A salesman, Drew Dungey, was right there. We told him that we were just curious, that we had a great car with only 40,000 miles on it. We continued to look, intrigued with the CH-R. It seemed like when we had a question, he was right there to answer, even tho we kept telling him that we were not in the market, just looking. This is the first year for this car in the USA, it has been in production in Europe prior. Drew explained the various safety features, there were many. We, being senior citizens were more than a little skeptical! They called us into the garage, as our car was ready to go, and we left. Once home, I decided to look the car up to get an idea of what was being said about it. I believe that it was Car & Driver Mag. that was rating it, and NOTHING good was to be said. Difficult getting in and out of, bad suspension, noisy on the road, and on and on. We said that were glad that we had checked it , before doing anything "crazy". However, we just kept thinking about that car, it was SO comfortable for us to get in and out of...we went back to the dealership for a test drive. Another complaint was that it had no "get up and go". My husband drove it on the expressway, NO noise, plenty of power, it was wonderful going over railroad tracks....ALL the safety features that one could EVER want or need. It was also available in a fabulous metallic red....Long story short, WE ORDERED ONE! We were told that it would take apx. 3 weeks, only took two for it to arrive. I was really nervous about all of the teck features. Drew took care of everything!! We got what we asked for our trade-in....had all of the special features explained to us, several times..lol We were told to not hesitate to call or come in with ANY questions, that they were always there for us. This was the fifth or sixth Toyota that we have purchased from Spartan Toyota. The service has ALWAYS been top notch. Cody, from the garage, is just the best. Our past favorite salesperson is no longer at the dealership, but Drew not fills the bill and then some, he was wonderful to work with, patient, and gave us his honest opinion about everything! He made spending $28,000 a lot of fun!!
