My Review Of Hybrid Center of New England:
I had been narrowing my used car search to a Toyota Prius the past few months and stopped in today to check out the advertised car shown on the outdoor pylon sign. I looked briefly around the lot and then walked inside to talk with a salesperson. I met Fozi who was polite and easy going. He asked some general questions and began to help me right away with learning more about the car in question. What I noticed was he was very knowledgeable about hybrids and the Prius. As we went outside to look at a Prius, he offered insights into what makes a Prius a reliable and a good purchase. I can usually tell when someone is "selling" but I must say that Fozi's communication was genuine and informative and shared for my benefit of making an educated purchase. Back inside the showroom I was impressed to find a Prius model with an exposed engine compartment (front end removed, ie, no bumper, radiator, and such present) clearly showing the engine, electronic sensor, and electric motor components. Also the doors, trunk were absent and the hybrid battery (located behind the rear seat) exposed and open to view. Fozi explained the components and gave a very useful overview of how the Prius technology operates and how it's different than other hybrids. I also met Larry the GM and he was very helpful with determining pricing and inventory availability. In the end, I test drove a 2007 model and began the paperwork to pick the car up this week. I got a great price on the car as well. Better than anything from other dealerships in the area.
I had an excellent experience and wish to thank Fozi and Larry for being hospitable and friendly. It was nice when later during the visit, Fozi and Larry suggested I take my family of 4 on a test drive. They arrived and enjoy the Prius' ride, comfort, and tech gadgets like the bluetooth for making calls (we called my mom) and the backup camera (the kids enjoyed finding the camera and looking through the rear hatch at their live images moving on the dashboard touchscreen). A fun, car buying experience! I look forward to taking delivery of the car this week.
