My Review Of Crystal Mazda:
I went to the dealership looking to buy a new car. I was narrowing down between a MazdaSpeed 3, VW GTI, VW CC, Kia Optima SX. Initial salesman greeted me nice enough. He immediately tried to qualify me. He asked if I was buying the MazdaSpeed 3 otherwise he can't really let me test drive it. How will I know if I like the car if I don't drive it to compare it to the others? But he said he would check with his "manager". About 30 seconds later, a young guy walks out and claims he is one of the managers. he begins to ask me about what cars I was thinking about. I tell him and say I'd like to compare the MazdaSpeed 3 to the others. he also begins to qualify me and gives me the same line. he tells me, he will check with his manager to see if he can get the keys. He comes back out after 15-30 secs and tells me, "how about this, you go and test drive the other cars first. i want us to be the last place and then I'll let you test drive it. He was smug and he mentioned that no dealer who has a sporty car or upscale car will let me test drive it. Also he didn't know if he was already the last place I was going!
I told him, are you sure that is what you want to do. I absolutely cannot buy a car without driving it. I told him If I leave, I am not coming back. So as I was leaving, I told "by the way, I did test drive a VW GTI with no problems. I told I'll just make my purchase elsewhere" and left.
My brother was on the other side of the lot where its Crystal Toyota. Too bad they lost another sale as he and his wife was interested in a new Rav4.
I can understand they don't want to put miles on the MazdaSpeed 3, but not letting anyone test drive it unless they are going to buy it? Its not like its a Bugatti Veyron or something so rare.
