My Review Of John Hinderer Honda:
Found the 2005 Jaguar when searching on Craigslist. I had primarily searched private owner listings only because my finances are very limited and I feel I typically get a better deal that way. There was one Jaguar listed through a private owner with low miles, but the vehicle sunroof motor was broken and the gas cap release was broken. I had originally planned to go look at it, but when I checked on financing through my bank, discovered they would not finance a car that was older than 2007 unless I wanted to do an unsecured loan with a much higher interest rate. Then I found practically the same car listed on Craigslist through John Hinderer Honda when I expanded my search to dealer listings. It was the same year and within 5000 miles of having the same mileage as the vehicle being sold by private owner. Pricing was almost exactly the same and there were no mechanical issues with this vehicle. I ended up going to the dealership and asked for Matt Harper, with whom I had spoken on the phone to make sure the vehicle was still available, but he was with another customer, so Jim Brown ended up helping me. The test drive went well and I fell in love with the car. I felt no pressure whatsoever during the negotiations. Jim went back and forth a couple of times to check my offer with the Sales Manager, John Durbin, and then John actually came out and spoke with me, too. Everything was very low key and comfortable. I do not handle pressure well when purchasing anything and probably would have walked if the sales associates had made me feel ill at ease. After speaking with John, he and Jim discussed my offer further and then Jim came back and shook my hand and said we have a deal. Yea! Then I went to work out the financing with Frank Ford. He was yet another testament to the hospitality this dealership offers. Paperwork was signed in no time and I was on my way home in my vehicle. I would highly recommend this dealership to anyone who is looking for a vehicle. My experience was more than I could have hoped for and when my daughter is ready to look for another vehicle in the next year or so, I will make sure she checks with John Hinderer Honda as her first point of contact.
