My Review Of Germain Toyota of Columbus:
From the moment that John walked out to greet us with his arms up in the air until the moment he bid us farewell with a hug, I was completely captivated by his welcoming and fun spirit. My fiance, Nathan, and I were searching for the perfect car to take out to Oregon with us when we moved this summer, so we listed off to John some important factors when buying (economical and gas friendly, spacious, we really wanted an SUV but realized we probably couldn't when trying to remain fuel-friendly, trunk space, something good for traveling with adventure gear, under $16000).
After listing these things off, John immediately walked us over the the Scion XB and unlocked it so that we could jump inside. While I was initially unsure about how I liked the outside boxy look, once I was inside I completely fell in love with it, which in turn began to change how I felt about the outside as well. I've always loved a full sound system but wasn't necessarily expecting one when we went out shopping that day for a car, but John delivered in EVERY aspect, including this car which has an AWESOME pioneer sound system. After driving it around the block, Nathan and I felt we had really found something that we could picture ourselves in and something that could be a part of our new life together. John's sincere and life-loving attitude completely put us both at ease, but especially myself who went into the day initially feeling as though I wanted Nathan to do all of the talking so that I wasn't being swayed by the prototypical "car salesman." The moment John came around, I couldn't shut up :) In an instant, he reverted my hesitation into complete enthusiasm by simply being the awesome person that he is.
On top of all that, our "Numbers" guy, Tony was a joy to work with and aside from the fact that we share the same birthday, we were really able to connect in conversation and attitude. He explained everything to us very thoroughly and broke down all of the numbers bit by bit so that we knew exactly what we would be doing with our money in relation to this car. I could tell that he enjoys what he does because it resonated in his ability to make it understandable and even FUN, when otherwise it could have been a very mundane process. Congratulations Tony on your upcoming 29th wedding anniversary!
We could continue to write on and on about this experience, and Nathan and I DID indeed continue to rave about all of it late into the evening after we had left. We will certainly be recommending this place and these two individuals to our friends and I plan on sending them both a picture of us and our car out in Oregon. THANK YOU so much Tony and John (and everyone else working there who seemed equally as kind). All of you truly did play a role in Nathan and I's future together and we couldn't be more excited and pleased with our first major purchase as a couple.
