We had some good, okay and terrible experiences. One salesman tried to convince us to make the sale that day if he could get us $200 more on our trade in - BEFORE even showing us the new car! It was ridiculous. He sold us on nothing, had terrible eye contact (as in too much) and didn't promote excellence in the company. Too bad since the Fit was our #1 front runner and we're both Honda people. Ehh.. he's a sucker.
In the end we liked the Scion xD and they had just two 2010 models still left on the lot. We went back the next day and made the sale. It's our first big official purchase as a couple. Both our names are on it. Hello Marriage! We got some perks that changed our mind about buying new and waiting a few months:
- Buying new would give us a lifetime warranty
- Their no haggle pricing made it easy to see how much it'd cost and how far it'd been marked down - meaning it was as affordable as some used cars
- Since Tony's enrolled in grad school we got an extra $1000 off. Yippee!
Welcome to the family little car! Nope. we're not those people who name their cars or inanimate objects. Except IKEA products - those actually have names like senor. Alright another day post.
