My Review Of Evans Volkswagen:
Less than one minute after beginning to browse the lot this morning, my mechanic and I were greeted warmly by Evans Motorworks sales consultant, Robert Elswick. He asked me what I was looking for and I said "VW Jetta TDI". He showed me a sharp 2010 model and then promptly went inside to retrieve his price list. Unfortunately I wasn't able to buy the diesel Jetta, but things did work out for me today.
I also had my eye on a very clean 2009 Subaru Legacy sedan. Without hesitation, Mr. Elswick offered a test drive and we were on our way. The test drive went smoothly. After returning back to the dealership we sat down and discussed finance options. I made sure that he knew that I would need to confer with my fiance before making the decision to purchase the Subaru. So we agreed to meet him at 2:30pm.
After a second test drive, this time with my fiance, we went inside to get down to brass tacks.
I was pretty specific about my financing requirements and he made sure to stay within those bounds. I was approved for the auto loan an we quickly moved forward negotiating the price. The actual purchase price was very close to Kelley Blue Book value, so I don't think i could have done better other than buying from a private seller.
After agreeing on price, Robert introduced me to the Business Manager who was quite a bit pushier with his sales techniques trying to get me to buy an extended warranty and GAP insurance, paint and tire protection. I declined the "extras" more than once, however he kept pushing for it. He eventually gave in to my stonewalling and we just finished the paperwork.
After finalizing paperwork, Robert met us at the business office and escorted us back to the show-room where we chatted for a while longer.
All-in-all, I feel my day was pretty successful. I bought a good car, met some nice folks and even made a friend in the process.. Great job, Robert! I will do business with you again.
