**header** To those of you paying attn to the low ratings, keep in mind how may of those are purely related to interest rates & financing, if your credit sucks, your interest rate is also going to suck...
Now here's my eval...
I would like to commend the salesperson who handled the majority of my interactions, the other 2 people I dealt with in sales were Roberto and Julie(a), they were also very helpful, but 10 stars for Shawn Winn (not sure I have the name spelled right) of Internet Sales Dept, This dude is so good that he even tried to talk me into a less expensive vehicle (he didn't push to hard on that end though, for any of his supervisors who may be reading this, potential customers will like to hear that) . He made it so easy that I thought it was too good to be true until today when my financing paperwork finally arrived in the mail. I actually felt so strongly that it was too good to be true, that before got a ride to the dealership I found myself doing online research on this place, and Mr Winn himself, even to the point of calling the dealership's front desk to inquire on his employment status This fella took what had been a nightmarish 3 weeks of car shopping, and completely turned around my day/month/how am I gonna get to work now situation. First off, I was not able to get to any dealer to even look at a vehicle in person due to my lack of transportation. I found a vehicle online and applied for a loan using the online function. Basically was told I had approval in a very short period of time, and to come test drive it and sign the papers. This was amazing for several reasons; 1-multiple other dealers would not provide me with any useful financing info, not even enough to parse out a guess as to what interest rate I would qualify for. ALL of the other dealer financing depts basically shut me down when I told them I couldn't get there for their face to face pitch prior to being approved, I even completed some online applications and they were not even submitted because I couldn't get there for them to sell at me. 2-my loan was approved via internet application and phone contact with Mr Winn, and just like he said, my paperwork was pretty much ready by the time I got done with the 10min test drive. 3-Said loan was done with 0 down, huge deal for me in the situation I was in. 4-I have a terrible interest rate but I am smiling about it because it's through a national reputable dealer. While it's probably one of the highest interest rates a traditional loan company can legally assign, it is commensurate with my credit history, and I am appreciative for the chance to restore my credit.
-Shawn Winn: awesome salesperson with actual people skills vs someone trying to selfishly upsel. He also seems to have moral compass and an apparent understanding of ethics based on him trying to help me make a more financially responsible decision than I wanted to or did.
-Roberto and Julie: also in sales, also super helpful
-Financing was made easy. I have a relatively poor credit history (can you say multiple recently cured student loan defaults), and got financed with no money down on a vehicle that I was actually interested in buying.
-Even the actual financing guy (HH I believe are his initials) that took me through the final loan details and could have probably tried to sell me everything from new car scent to timeshares in Costa Rico,... Even he was helpful and low pressure.
-And finally, not mentioned above: Arrived at the dealership shortly before closing and put my eyes on the car for the first time and didn't finally walk out until about 45mins after business hours were over, From what I could tell, at least 6 employees hung out through the process and I didn't once hear any complaint. Mr Winn didn't even so much as give me the stink eye for asking to use the facilities after all that was done and he and his coworkers were trying to close up shop, 45mins late.
This place is highly recommended
