My Review Of Tamaroff Nissan:
I had gone to Jeffrey Auto first, but after I didn't purchase the car (didn't find what I was looking for), the sales person dropped me like a hot potato.
Mike was outstanding. He wasn't dismayed that I didn't pick the first car (or second car), and really hung in there with me until I found the RIGHT car and it is PERFECT! I have had the car one month, and I already have over 2000 miles on it.
We looked at one car, that one just wasn't it, looked at another, no go (didn't get the "this is it" feeling). He still didn't give up. I left for the evening. He gave me a call before I got home to thank me for coming in and told me to hang in there with him.
That gave me hope. I looked on my computer (stayed up until 1:30 a.m.) to get some ideas and came up with something that might work. He called the next morning to say he didn't know which car it was going to be, but he knew he had the right car for me in stock. I sensed he was right!
I don't shop for cars often (thank goodness) and this was my first car purchase in over 10 years. There are several things I look for when shopping for a car, and some things I need...
? Outstanding gas mileage (currently getting around 38 mpg)
? Ease of driving / handling
? Room for a double bass (yup, the big guy), which my daughter plays
? Great Price
? Comfort (sits a bit high as I am fairly tall and knees don’t like low cars)
? Car that was more mine than my daughters as she is never really home anyway,
just uses it when she is home to cart her bass around and hang with friends
? Great on the road
? A few fun bells and whistles (within my budget)
I went in and told him of my findings. He had been looking also, came up with the exact same conclusion and had one or two of each "level" of the Nissan Versa sedan. We looked, and realized we needed the one with the fold down rear seat.
There were only two in stock (black and silver). I selected the silver one. I purchased the car on November 10, at 1pm and put it on the road at 6 p.m. that same night - going to Kalamazoo and back to see my daughter in her first concert with the Kalamazoo Philharmonic Orchestra. My car is now 1 month old and I have over 2000 miles on it and I love it!
We just brought the bass back home from college (semester break) and there was plenty of room for her in the back of the car (or for me as we switched on our way back). We were squished in the Saturn, but we have plenty of room and we didn't even let down the seats! If you need to get an idea of what it is like with that puppy in the car, look up "double bass in a small car" videos on youtube to get an idea.
I have my Ipod thingy, my steering wheel phone thingy, cruise control, I am happy, happy, happy!!! I enjoy being in my car, I love driving it, it's comfortable, outstanding gas mileage, and one of the favorite cars I've had over the years (and I don't buy cars often - this is car #5 in 40 years!).
I am truly (truly, truly!) pleased, I absolutely thrilled with Mike Gross and he really hung in there with me. He never pressured me, just let me konw we would find the best car for my needs, and would figure out which one it would be. I felt inspired to dig around and come up with ideas that would match what I was looking for in the selection that was available through your organization.
I am truly happy with my purchase!
