I needed to replace my 2010 Saab, which only had 48,888 miles, but which had been discontinued in 2010 through the genius of General Motors. It had become increasingly difficult to find parts and it was nearly impossible to find a buyer because no one wanted a car for which parts couldn't be found and Saab aficionados wanted pre-2000 Saabs--before GM ruined the brand. I had test driven the Fiat 500 and the Mini-Cooper Countryman and it just didn't speak to me. Friends recommended a Subaru; so, I went for a look.
I walked into the dealership and was greeted by Eli. I looked at the 2017 Impreza 2.0i Sport in Ice Silver with a cloth black interior with red stitching and immediately fell in love with the car. It was a 5 door- 4 passenger doors and a hatch. Exactly what I had had for years with Saab. The more I looked the more I was hooked. I have always purchased cars in the winter. I got an incredible trade-in price for my Saab and knew I would drive the Impreza home that day if I could get my price. I got my price.
Now a word about my sales advisor, Eli Krakinovsky. A young man who listens and isn't pushy. He heard me say that I was the Council Liaison to my town's Environmental Commission; so, driving an Outback or a Forester was not in the cards, despite friends recommending them. Eli heard what I said and steered me to either the Legacy or the Impreza. By that time, I had fallen in love with the Impreza. Eli had a great deal of patience because I asked a lot of questions, did a lot of talking and it took a little while to get to the price I wanted. Eli made everything happen in ONE day. So, this EXCEPTIONAL young man made things happen to the point that I drove to the dealership in a Saab and home on the same day in an Impreza. Impressive.
Everyone at the dealership was extremely friendly. If I was standing there, someone would ask "Are you being taken care of?" "Do you need a cup of tea or coffee?" This was my first experience at Subaru of Morristown and I'm glad to report it was 5-star positive.
