What a great car-buying experience. I found a beautiful used car for my wife, told them what I was willing to pay, which really wasn't much less than the sticker price. I also asked for a few minor imperfections to be fixed. They didn't try to haggle, "let me get the boss to see if it's ok...". The salesman was empowered to make the deal.This is the kind of auto experience I like and appreciate. The building is beautiful, with a little cafe. Very nice waiting area, and a very nice ambiance. The service was great, the people were great, and most of all the car is great, at a very fair price. I'll come to Owens Murphy again, and I would tell others to check them out. They have some very nice cars (Land Rover; Jaguar; Volkswagen Dealers). I really liked their pre-owned inventory. Very good selection.
First, it's a Honda! I was 2 years into a 3 year lease from McClarty. They made an intriguing "lease pull-ahead" offer by mail that turned out to work perfectly for what I had in mind a year from now. Instead of waiting, drove off buying (not leasing) a brand new current model of what I'd been leasing. Was impressed with the time they took and suggestions they made to tailor the financing package (and extended warranty) to my needs, budget and driving history. Easily the most pleasurable deal I've made in over 40 years of cars. Must have met 6 or 7 staff personnel during the course of the deal: uniformly friendly, down-to-earth, no pressure, knowledgeable. Amazing, really. Couldn't be more impressed with McClarty.
This was by far the quickest, easiest, and best deal on a car I've ever gotten! I knew I wanted another Civic because I love my little car so much, and my daughter is going to be taking it over for college. I've been stressing about getting a good deal, getting financed, and just dealing with the whole car shopping experience as a whole. I shouldn't have been! I called James Forrester, told him what I wanted, and that was how easy it was. Got a great deal and a great interest rate. Drove happily off the lot in less than an hour in a half! I couldn't recommend James Forrester and Landers McClarty more highly.
I loved my experience at Northpoint Mazda. Russell Norris was helpful, not pushy at all. He was knowledgeable and friendly. I've never had less than excellent service at Northpoint, and am glad to have another Mazda in my garage! I showed up Saturday morning with no intention of buying a car, but 3 hours later had test driven, ordered, and financed the car of my dreams. They lent me a nice car to drive while mine was shipped from another dealer. A great experience all around.
