Not having purchased a vehicle since 2004, I was skeptical, at best, that this would be an enjoyable process...Dee Straker, and the team at Cardinale Way Mazda, proved me wrong!
Doing research online is great, but taking the leap to actually contacting a dealership, and the onslaught on dealer phone calls was not anything I was looking forward to.... so I was pleasantly surprised to have received an email from Mr Straker, providing details of the vehicle in question, along with photos, Car Fax and their internet price. When we finally spoke, he was courteous, knowledgeable and was genuinely interested in helping me find the right vehicle at a price I could afford.
I did schedule a test drive and found the car to be exactly as described...right make, right color, right price. The finance manager, Matt La Russa, worked hard to find a low interest rate, and I am happy to say, the car is now mine!
Dee was my partner in this process, keeping me informed of next steps along the way. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an exceptional car-buying experience.
