Once upon a time, many many years ago (well, 2008 to 2012 to be precise) I had a BEAUTIFUL dark tan colored Mercedes GL350 (diesel). It was the most elegant and luxurious SUV in the universe. I was very proud of getting it, because some doctor in West Virginia paid me $3300 via cashier’s check to take over his lease. I ended up buying the car after the lease was up and spending 3 glorious years with it. I loved so many things about it, especially the power tailgate and the body feel of the steering wheel and seats.One day, I discovered a beautiful princess named Lindsay whose superpower was being able to negotiate car deals quickly and with unparalleled ease. I gave her an idea about what I’d like in a new car. She waved her magic wand, gave me directions to a dealership that would execute according to her incantations, and within just a few hours…I had a new Honda that looked and FELT like my old beloved Mercedes 🙂 🙂 🙂 totally unexpectedly. I mean, really… a Honda that feels like a Mercedes?? They have done some serious magic with those CR-Vs over the past couple of years. It’s soooooo smooth.It is GREAT!! Totally worth *all* of the extra money to get the 2016. There is a HUGE difference between the 2015 I drove and the 2016… much tighter steering, controls, and the seats are a huge improvement. Such a great serendipitous event that I test drove the cinnamon color car. I would easily have been happy walking out of there with a $20K loan balance with THAT car!!! And that’s the one I got!
Thank you SOOOOoooooo much for doing all the talking and working things out. This has been the MOST enjoyable car deal I’ve been involved in over the history of history, and all thanks to you. I felt like I had an advocate at all steps, and I was able to tune out the extra stimuli that usually gives me a headache and/or makes me cry.
Mike [Mike Goodman], forgot to give me the 2nd key for the car… but since I had to give them the 2nd key for the trade-in, and it was at home (since I didn’t expect to DRIVE home in this one today) he’s actually driving up here tomorrow so we can trade keys! He is really a good guy and was bending over backwards to make sure that we are all happy. I give him 5 stars [out of 5].
Let me know if you have any questions!! I am going to go to sleep happy as a clam tonight. And now I don’t have to worry about getting new tires (which I would have, if I kept the old Honda through this season)!!
